Startling Instructions to Gun boat Sent for Zelaya. Wha f is said *o be the text of the sealed orders issued to Commander Azueta. of the Mexican gunboat General Vicente Guerrero, when he was as signed recently to take President Zelaya of Nicaragua from Corinto to Mexico. is disclosed for the first time in a re cent number of "El Sufragio Libre," a new=paner of Mexico City, recognized as an organ of President Porfirio Diaz. - ;-- : - that paper the orders read as follows. Go to Corinto for Genera.! Zelaya and bring him to Mexico on board the gunboat Guerrero. . , I* th* American fleet attempts to take him f^om OU blow up your gunboat rather than deliver the President of Nicaragua to the United States. In its editorial comment on this pro cedure "El Sufragio Libre' refers to it as "a beautiful example of altruism," and applauds the governmental action that prevented "the repetition in Amer ica of the iniquitous case of Cipriano Castro, expelled from the continent in which he -was born." ..... „..._■• ' -- TERRIBLE AZTEC ; EAGLE. In a rhapsody of flamboyant end ex travagant Castilian the newspaper goes on to comment on the - triumph of the Aztec eagle, "which strangles reptile*." over the American eagle, "which car ried ofl California," New Mexico and Texas." It tells of Mexico as a hospitable haven for the politically afflicted of I^atin-America and speaks in no uncer tain terms of '"the brutal right of strength exercised by the United States." As to the orders ' to Commander Azueta and Mexico's display of strength." the "Sufragio" says Such an order seems to belong to the Napoleonic times, to be one of those he roic orders given by Churroca in Trafal gar: such a document, such an energetic and gallant order, is worthy of the fear less times of the heroic poems which exalt the history of the bravest and most glori ou= nations of the earth. Among the national politicians and in the press of all countries warrh comments are made about this deed, which is the last stroke of energy of an a^ed states man locked upon as decrepit. That is a supreme display of the strength, self-con fidence and disrnity of a Latin-American country— Mexico. According to the Mexican contempo .-■ 'he rescue of Zela3 - a from the ex platior: cf his de c .ds "strengthened the status of the Latin-American, and here ifter be wiD -::: 1 how to save himself from the hungry jaws of the tremen dous United States." The protection extended to Zelaya is recorded as 'a precedent and fraternal support,'" and the imputation that Mex ico is a barbarous nation is resented. "Mexico is a free, a great, a beauti ful, a rich and a peaceful country." the paper says, and it adds: "Mexico saved a Latin-American itiitesman from the barbarian persecution of the United States. Who is now the barbarian 0 " Apropos of the green, white and red flag of Mexico and the •= motions the "Sufragio" believes it inspired in Ze laya's heart, this Is what the paper has to sa3" : The flag created by Iturbide. our cheerful three-colored flag, has been raised as never before to a wonderful altitude in the sky or the policy of humanity and international philanthropy. It was under the protection of this flag "that the gunboat which brought Zelaya to Mexico ploughed the seas. Be cause of the respect inspired by the stand ard of Mexico no guns dared oppose the voyage cf Zelaya. Our flag was respected by the giant. That makes us feel proud and shows that we are strong, because nowadays only strength is respected. Under the protection of the Mexican flag hoisted at the stem, at the top of the high est mast of the Guerrero. Zelaya came, to Mexico. Perhaps the overthrown President, some afternoon at sunset, standing on the deck, gazing at our flag floating in the wind, misht have thought: "Blessed Sag. your green color means a hope for me. Your white color symbolizes the wing of a sea gull, carrying me to peaceful snore?, and your red means the joy of my.soul— red different from the red which means war and the blood of my brothers." Ah! what a happiness for a man in his misfortune to find, when going into exile, a flag to wrap him. carrying him throusn th« seas, banished from his country to the ••promised land," a new fatherland, where adversity dees not depress him. where the voracity of the strongest does not threaten tc exterminate him, using the brutal ngnt of strength, which is the main right of tne United States— right they nsed with Spain, with Colombia, with Cuba and witn Ttficaraeua! Mexican flag, hope of all. not in vain thou earnest in the centre an eagle as a shield: Glorious Bag mantle c. all— our flag: Hooray! "El Sufragio Libre" gives due credit for the rescue of the "democrat" as fol lows: The ?tep taken by our government is a step taken by the nation— an act carriea out by the Mexicans The glory belong to £ However, we cannot deny an applause to th» men who conceiv*»d this daring exploit and to those who carried it out, as, for ex ample, Commander Azueta. who undoubt edly was determined to sacrifice his life, ;,„-!..„, in the sea with our flag rather than to become a prey of the United States. This significant fact, because of the Spe~" ciaV circumstances, weighs more in the opinion of the world than any Mexican can Imagine at first sight. We have taken a gigantic step ir history— step similar to the greatest" exploits of ancient times. How must Juarez have shaken, in his grave had he known that his flag, which was shroud for a usurper monarch, was a mantle of redemption to save a democrat whose command Vas usurped! And here is where the eagle "that strangles reptiles" gives screaming vent to its feelings: Aztec eagle, powerful eagle, which stran gles reptiles, thou with thine strong claws, knew how to liberate a victim from the ea?!e '.hat in ancient times carried off from us California, New Mexico and Texas. At that time thou wert slumbering and starv ing. Now thy wings are I r.ed by peace. Sacred eagle, patriotic symbol, watch over us— watch, fly higher and re main perpetually in the diaphanous sky' MANY FLOOD SLITS. Pans Public Utility Companies May Be Liable. Paris, Feb. 6. — An exceedingly impor tant question has been raised relative to the pecuniary responsibility of the public utility companies for individual flood damages. In the case of the Or leans and Western railroads and the Metropolitan Subway, experts agree that the tunnels constructed below the level of The Seine, which were converted into raging torrents during the flood, were the direct cause of the inundation in numerous streets of cellars of houses v.hich otherwise would ha^e escaped. M- Berthelemy, professor of municipal law at the Sorbonne. and several other eminent lawyers, say that individuals who have thus suffered are undoubtedly entitled to indemnification. The fact that the companies received municipal or government concessions, they hold, in no w'.se relieves them from the risk in volved in the execution of their conces sions. It is probable, therefore, that thousands of claimants will enter suit against the companies. The Western Railroad Is now the property of the state. Such suits will be decided by the Council of State, and the principle in volved is likely to attract much interest beyond the borders of France. WIRELESS SAID SHIP SINKING.

General Mena was in command of the Insurgents at the battle, and toward the close of the fight he 'is reinforced by Cclonel Zeledon — "three hundred men. This prevented the insurgents from being cut of-" entirely. General Vasquer, in his advices, says, that he is still pursuing -he enemy. He at tributes the story to a well executed ambuscade.

XO SIOUX MIGRATION. Madriz Fears Indians May Aid Estrada. Boston. Feb. 6.— Because President Madriz of Nicaragua feared that the proposed mi gration of eight thousand members of the Sioux tribe of Indians from their reserva non in South Dakota to that country was a ruse to gain strength for the insurgent army under General Estrada. the plans of Chief Little Eiscn. of the Sioux tribe, have received a temporary setback. The chief, who -v :;- to Nicaragua to prepare the way for the coming at his brothers, was a pas senger to-day on the steam Esparta. from Port Limon. Costa Rica. He was accom panied by his wife, who is a white woman. Little Bison --aid he reached Costa Rica vrh-n the Nicaraguan revolution was at its most critical stage, the election of Dr. Madriz taking place abcut that time. The new President was suspicious of the Indian chiefs Intentions, and appealed to the Costa Rlcan government to prevent his entry iIUO Nicaragua. The chief then was submitted to constant surveillance. He mana£*tl. however, to > luc">- bis watch ers at •jcupilc. Costa Rica, about thirty miles from the Nicara§uan border and slipped into Elueflelds on January 27. There be had a conference with General Estrada. Th- 1 insurgent leader was sanguine regard ing the success of his own cause, saying that the war would end favorably for the insurgents within six weeks. He favored the coming of tlie Indians, he said. Little Bison, with his wife started to night for New York, where he will confer with President F. S.

This made the receipts avail able for the redemption of these feaa & 523,355,400. There were -- - sad :of revenue bonds issued in anticipation : of the collection of arrears of taxes ISo, 575,600, so that $42,217,200 more was paid out for the redemption than was received from the sale of these securities in 190?. The source from which the money for this purpose came is very evident. There was $29,031,290 obtained from the sale of 1909 revenue bonds, 55.507.532 carr.e from the forced surplus of budget accounts and 56.375.01S rras taken from the- pro ceeds of corporate stock sales during the year. Together these amounts make the $42,217,200 used to redeem old revenue bonds during the twelve months. The Tribune has already shown in a series of articles on "Hidden Chapters In City Finance" how the policy cf chasing the devil around a stump was pursued by the McClellan-Metz administration In 1907 and 190S in order to conceal the real facts regarding the city's financial position from the taxpayers. The story told by the ofScia! figures for last year is only another chapter in the same silly game. The plain truth is that the city is out some $40,000,000 of accumulated taxes levied upon personal estates and special franchises of corporations. The officiaJ ngures given in the reports of th-s Controller show that of the taxes levie<l on land? and buildings since 1901 90 per cent has been collected. During the same period only 60 per cent of personai taxes and 11 per cent of special fran chise taxes have come into . the city treasury. Payments authorized in the annual budgets for the cost of adminis tering- the city government include the entire tax levy each year. Failure on the part of the city to collect S3 per cent of special franchise and 40 per cent of per sonal taxes levied during the years since 1901, all of which levies were authorized to be expended in the yearly budgets, has brought about the present condition of the city's finances. UNCOLLECTIBLE TAXES. During that time millions of dollars each year have been taken from corpor ate stock receipts and millions more have been secured from the sale of revenue bonds issued against taxes that are now absolutely uncollectible. In his first year in office former Con troller Metz made a first move toward getting' rii of r^' s revenue bond debt ircucus. He got author: • from the Leg islature to fund $36 000.000 of these un collectible taxes of levies prior to 190.">. While this method of meeting the an nual Inroads upon the city's revenues by tax dodgers was wrong in principle, it would at least have enabled the admin istration to do some very necessary financial housecleaning. But even this method of straightening out the city's finances was not taken advantage of by tne last administration. Only $3,000,000 of the corporate stock authorized for that purpose was issued. The remainder. $33,000,000. still remains unused, with the result that corporate stock moneys authorized for other purposes and trust funds have been used in a futile :ort to reduce the outstanding revenue bond debt incurred in excess of the collectible taxes out of which it should be re deemed. ' Sooner or later the question will have to'be squarely and honestly faced, or the time will come when this ; ■:. unse cured temporary indebtedness will make it impossible for the city to dispose of its securities. Mayor i jrnor has taken an important rirst step in his instructions to the new Board of Tax Commissioners that in future all tax assessments must be fairly imposed, without fear or favor.
