J., the day's starting point, and this village was stretched into 27 as the result of tie \\'ieni taking the wrong road. This carried them over a stretch of rough march ing Ilefore they found the main high way again. Three women dropped out en route, leaving 13 regulars to night.

The sutff1a gette leader, undaunfed, mounted a chair and asked that the students form a men's league *for woman suffrage. This request was greeted with cheers mingled with cat calls. The "gen eral" asked the students to return an hour later to hear (Miss Elizabeth Freeman, the official orator of the party. They did and Miss Freeman talked to them from the steps of the hotel. Cheers and good-natured gibes interrupted almost every sen tencc, but, unperturbed, the suffrage orator spoke for more than an hour. President-elect Wilson, to whom the suffrag'ttes expect to deliver a mes sage at the timen of h's inauguration, was in town tonight, but "General" Jones decided to make no attempt to see him. The women have corvered in their two days of marching 43 miles and they were footsore and wary tonight. Tomorrow they will march 10 miles 'to Trenton.

IF1H DAY ENDSS IN A DEMAND FOR SURRENDER (Continued From Page One) nitted a slight difficulty, but said that this had been settled. The. government telegraph wire still in silent on the news throughout the republic, but there has reached here through various sources information, w\hich appears credible, to the effect! that the Diaz movement has found consilderable favor in many sections. ()ne report says that the city of Puebla upenly hals proclaimed him provisional president. In the state of 'Puebla, Francisco Pradilla, formerly with ()roz.en, is sait to be at the head of a body of men ,on the way to Mexico ('ity to support Dinz. An army officer of a lotal division arrived tonight from Vera ('ruez. lie adnmitted that in great stretches or counltry between here and the gulf the peopl, openly are crying "vi:.es" for General Diaz and that he himself had ]ntll s.beted to int .t tembarrtass ment becausse of hiis loyalty. The dittlnlntt representatives said tonight that they had no intention ut itaking further relireeIntaitions 'I the Mexican governmtent lookit:g t a set tlcinent. Such action tI t r rdrit' 1 as futile. There is no good reason to teli.\' (it tloolCorw xill nOt See : restinp tion .of today's opelrations. Outlook Not Bright. 'lThe outloolk for the gotv rnmeont was, ttnsidered by unbinaed observers t night as by no teans bright. Mader, ix grtttly wirrittd 1 tthtttte tttt' liter a. ts had made little or no htad\waty in their efforts to smnther the rebellion. 'f!he pnalace had been sulbjectd to it heavy humbardin, nt, and, whtei the firing cansed, which it trltttically dil at 7 o'clock, the rebel outposts il;td at d vanced slightly in a number of direc tions. General Ituerta, before beginnilng oplerations in the morning, transmitted a note to General Diaz, in which he liformed the rebel commander that he w tuld be treated with all considera tion if he surrendered. It was stated in the note that the desire of tie go(y crilment was to save further lood sh dr and damage by the terrific mrn hartiment. Diazs reply was to open fire on tae :eaerals with his guns. If. the situation in the ~lpital changed at all today, it hardly can be said to have been in favor of tllhe Maderistas. At 5 o'clock this evening it was replorted that General 1 iaz hadI demanded the surrender of the national palace. All through the day the rebel batteries of heavy guns were throwing a fierce fire of shrapnel around the palace. Many of the shells dropped into the Zocalo, which fronts the building, and federal soldiers were compelled to move to cover. Before dark the fire on both sides was intermittent but applarently less vigorous from the federals. The gov ernment troops were receiving ammu nition in small consignments and it was said that they were running short. The fifth day of the battle b(egan at S o'clock, a battery of federal artillery opening fire on the arsenal, but, al though the bombardment was kept upl without cessation for an hour or more, it had no alppreciable effect on the rebel dlefenses. That Diaz had plrepared for the threatened overwhelming miovement by the government w\hich Madero prom ised would be carried through today. was shown by the fact that lie had stationed shlarlp-shooters on the roofs of adjoining builldings, had dispatched a force ulltside his lines to the west of the city and had placced his heavi est guns in positions commanding all the approaches to his strolnghold. (Genteral IHl-erta, commalnnding the federals, had prtomised to rush the fortifications of the rebels, but he elected instead to em)ploy his artillery frotm the various points of vantage. ()lily once in the early part of the day dlid the infantry come into action. 'Palace Is Target. During the heavy shelling of the Ipalace, )Diaz apparenlly movll\ed somen Iof his forces to the solltheast of the city and shortly after 12 o'cl)ck the palace was made the target of both shells and rifle fire from that district. S'oincidentally. the rebels succeede' in extending their zone of activity in other directions. The rebel fire toward the palace was intendied not only to bring about its ;:urrender but had for its purpose also the clearing of the Intervening high hlildings of machine guns and rifle Imnen and of silencing the federal bat Itery operating in San Juan de Letran street, at a point midway between the arsenal and the palace. This shelling wrought havoc among the buildings in that section of the city. The American club was riddled. The interior of the second and third floors w'ere completely wrecked. Of 40 Americans within at the time, sev eral had nost miraculous escapes from death. Seven shells tore through the walls. The first two crashed through the reading room at the front of the sec (and story. The others entered above the second story on the sides. In ad dition to the shell fire, the interior as well as the exterior of the Americar club was perforated in scores of places by hullets from rifles and machine guns. The shells which entered the read ing room tore their way through the stone window casing, demolishing a hea\vy leather chair and exploded witl terrific force. Shrapnel was hurled it all direction, cutting the furniture tc ribbons, rippirig the floors and wall. and puncturing In a score of places the portraits which were about the room The portrait most seriously danmagei was that of President Madero. Presil (lent McKinley's face is now set In t circle of bullet holes, while the por. trait of President Taft, hanging next escaped with a single mark. To the rear of this room is a large one used for billiards and pool. T"hern Many Americana were gathered as the maneger had, fobtidden the: members to assemble in the front room, when a second series of shells crashed through the walls. These tore through the story above. Some of these shells entered almost i on a line with the floor. From the fire which followed, the greatest damage resulted. All but one shell exploded.! This remains buried in the third wall which it encountered. Portions of shrapnel shell were hurled through the floor above,' the billiard rooms among a group of Americans there. Four sleeping rooms on the fourth floor were wrecked. From one the entire wall was torn away. The wrecking of this huildinu was typical of the damage done Itmany others in all parts of the city. Just around the corner frtion the American club, tR. Mt. NMerelith of Troy, N. Y., was injured ttoday. lie was struck by shrapnel, suffering a st·alp wound.
