Huerta bas always been considered
orthodox, and because of his very con
siderable abi'i ty as a general he be
came Madera's right hand man in mil

Madero Relied on Huerta.
That is how it happened that when
Madeio began to experience the excite
ment of being rebelled against, instead
ot doing most ot the lebelbng himself,
it was Huerta who as general was sent
out to obliteiate his enemies The

in Mar ch of last VCMI After the sin
cide ot Salus, Huerta, who had forme i-
]y been in command ot the federal
forces in Motelos, took oharge of the
campaign to subdue Orozco and spoke
ot that rebellious critic of the Ma
dero iegime with as much line scorn
as he had once been wont to heap upon
tae heal of Madero himself
Tbe news that Huerta had decided
to succeed Madero could not shock the
alreadj jangled nerves of those who
were sensitive because of their heavy
investments in Mexico Americans in
the comparatively safe coast towns of
Tanipieo and era Cr uz have brought
back word that at least ten claimants
to tbe piesideney were to be found

to Madero and the federal cau se Each
of these has done some plotting and
entered into secret deals with differ

and concessions in return foi a little
immediate material assistance Many
a frantic appeal for prompt interven
tion by the government at Washington
has been interpreted as inspired by A
fear that some such investment was
about to fail dismally
Huerta Suspected of Early Plot.
So to the canniest of Mexican ob
servers it has seemed highly probable
that at any moment some compara
tiv ely inconspicuous general would step
forward and call himself the successor
to Madero Even Huerta, with all his
reputation tor sobriety in the midst ot
revolution, has not been above sus
picion, and it was not very long ago
that there was an open prediction that
he was scheming to unseat his chief
This prediction was made last Sep
tember, when an unusually savage out
break of anti-Maderist sentiment had
enlivened the City of Mexico, where
the citizens paraded the streets with
uproarious "vivas" for the banished
Diaz. On that same day. Se pt 14. an
American newspaper received an il
luminating dispatch from that observa
tion outpost ot Mexican affairs, El
Paso, Tex
"Rumor is persistent that Mexico fs
on the brink of another revolt against
the organized government,' the dis
patch said, "and that this time it will
come from within, from the federal
army General Huerta is determined
to be the military dictator and even
military preside nt of Mexico has
expressed himself to his followers to
tills effect. Unless he is taken care of

there will be a new revolution, for he
is the acknowledged leader in the new
movement to restore the military pow
to the control of Mexican affairs."
Huerta Protests Loyalty.
This predicted overturn of the Made r
ist administration was scheduled for
Sept. 1G, the Mexican independence
day in celebration of the release from
the ancient domination of Spain Que
ries were rushed to Eoerta as to his at
titude in the matter, a.ad his reply was
indignantly haughty.
"I am not Orozco," he said, with a
fine show of contempt for the man who
had revolted against Madero. "I vouch
for the loyalty of the army. W will
hold a celebrati on in Juarez on the na
tional holiday, but it will be merely one
ot patriotism and nothing more I am
a soldier and nothing more."
The news of Huerta's ascendency
aroused the greatest interest among
New Yorkers who have Mexican inter
ests and who have recently returned to
this city from the vicinity of the
trouble Edwin Macpherson. who
is directing large engineering schemes
in Mexico, received the news at the
Hotel Vanderbilt
"General Huerta is one of the higher
class Mexicans, a man of the la
Barra type." he said "He is a man of
large means, a member of the Mexican
gentry has large ranch lands and
many cattle does a very consid
erable export busine ss to tbe United
States, shipping to the Swift and A
mour people So Americans know him
and know him very favorably Al
most al! foreigners who are guarding
their investments Mexico wou ld feel
a considerable degree of confidence in
Gener al Huerta and would welcome
his control of affairs
Story of His Life.
Victotiano Huerta was born in the
state of Chihuahua some fifty-six years
ago and as a lad of seventeen went to
Mexico City and entered the military
school at Chapultepec. Immediately
after his graduation from that mstitu
tion he entered the active service and
by successive promotions- reached the
generalship he held at the time of the
Madeust uprising against Diaz Huer
a was called into consultation by the
elder Diaz after the capture of Juarez
and counseled against resignati on
wanted 000 men and, with that force
promised to retake the city, but the
opportunity was not granted to him
and. with the resignation of his chief,
he was recalled to Mexico City
head ed the escort that attended the ex
iled Diaz as far as Vera Cruz. and it
was Diaz's parting injunction that
er ta should support the administration
A rumor of a break in the outwardly
friendlv relations between Madero and
Huerta came only a few davs ago,
when one of Madero's brothers openly
criticised lerta's handling of the fed
eral forces against the rebel Orozco
Men who knew Huerta guess ed how
