it may he said in unqualified terms that
the President is prepared to g?> to any

Not only will drastic and Biunmary

generally, but the power of the law will
be ?n\oked against ? ertain radical news?

Prolific Source of Disorder.
The public demonstration habit, to...
which has become a prolific source of
unnecessary disorder in the capital anl
other placea, will ?Ibo be curbed. Or?
ders already have been issued to the p>
]jce to prevent demonstrations whi.-h
have for their object denunciation and
unwarranted criticism of the govern?
ment. It was explained to-day by one
of the members of the government that
gr ??s advantage had been taki?n by agi?
tators of all sorts of the desire and dis
fosition manifested by President Madero
in the three months which have elapse?!
since he was inaugur?t?d to nllow th?
fullest possible latitude of fro?, speech
and political liberty.
The President was determined to
give th? people the fullest opportunity
of exercising their rights without being
hampered or repressed in any way."'
said this official. "By far the greater
number of citizens have availed them
selves of these rights in a lawful man?
ner. This, however. Is unfortunately
not true of a comparatively small num?
ber, of men, who have misused the
knlency of the authorities and mistaken
the attitude of the administration for a
sign of weakness. They have imposed
upon good nature many times. When
meriting punishment for obvious infrac?
tion- of the law they hav been undis?
turbed. This has made th? m holder and
more intolerable In their attempts to
foment trouble. Now they will be com?
pelled to behave themselves. If they
disregard the warning now issued. It Is
they who will be hurt."
Stands by His Pledges.
"The President stand?* upon every

to allow the country to be at the mercy

LEAPS FROM EIFFEL TOWER
Inventor of Automatic Parachute
Killed in Try-Out.
Paris. F.I.. 4. An Austrian tailor
named Relchalt was killed to-day while
testing an automatic j.ara? hute cape In?
tended tor the use of aviators. The COB?
trivati? e was his own invention, and
Relchalt was authorized by th? police
to carry out t?*sts with a dummy first
from a stage on the Biffai Tower. Hav?
ing absolute faith, however, in tiie effl
oacjr of his invention, K??i?-helt secretly
determined to dispense with the dummy
and try the experiment in person. He
rapidly donned the garment, and beforo
he COUld !>?' stopped leaped Into space.
For some reason the cape failed to
open, and Rei? belt dropped like a stone.
\ great crowd that had gathered at the
na>t- of the tower burst into Jeer? when
they saw what they believed to be the
dummy drop. Their mirth changed to
?onsternation when they realized that it
was the inventor himself. Hardly a
bone In his body was left unbroken.
The tlrst stase of the Eiffel Tower, from
which in all probnhllity Reichelt made his
Jump, is 1>?6 feet from the ground. Fred?

The gas from all the Jets In their gas

over them and eddied back from the
four walls of the tiny room, from th.?
tight shut window and the closed door.
The open oven door swung out within
