The United States Embassy, however, has only the report,
' which at 8 p. m. it had been unable to verify.
Neither Madero nor any of his Cabinet could be found at the
j National Palace at 8 o'clock. Attendants said the President had left
! a few minutes before, but probably would return as soon as he had
4 gone to Chapultepec Castle, where his wife had been all this week.
i Those in the Palace would give no information or express any
opinion about the resignation rumor. There were no indications of
j undue excitement in the Palace.
There was a brief resumption of the artillery fire to and from
?the Citadel between 8 and 9 o'clock for an hour. Numerous bodies
of soldiers, fully equipped, are filling streets in the direction of the
Citadel, and this may presage a night attack.

Mexico City, Feb. 14.?The resignation of Fran;; I. Madero
from the Presidency is believed to be in the hands ci ..he Mexican
Congress. It was authoritatively stated that Madero agreed to
resign if the Senate so wished. The Senate was called into session
? about 8 o'clock to-night to take action on this important phase of
I the situation.
At the British Legation, where Se?or de la Barra took refuge
: yesterday, it was stated that Madero's resignation had practically
j been arranged for and that de la Barra would likely succeed him as
j President.
Se?or de la Barra, while proceeding through the streets in an
automobile later, stopped and made a short address, assuring the

The laws of Mexico make it necessary for the resignation of the
| Piesidcnt to be submitted to the Congress, and for this reason of
i ficial announcement of the resignation of Madero would be con

Another development of the early evening was the resignation.
of Rafael Hernandez as Minister of the Interior.
Whether hostilities will be resumed in the morning naturally
depends on the action of the President and Congress, or upon the
aggression of the rebels.
Another interchange of notes took place to-day between Gen?
et al Huerta and the rebel commander. That of Huerta was of a
? conciliatorv character. It offered Diaz permission to retire in peace
with his men. Diaz replied that he would continue to fight.
The government has not been whipped, nor have the rebels.
Diaz is not trying to whip the government at present, but merely to
! resist it. During the day the rebels had not been reinforced, but
'. the federals had been, and the claim was made by the government
! that it had no fewer than six thousand men available.
Francisco de la Barra, formerly Provisional President, who may
become President, was accompanied to the arsenal and to the
Palace by the Spanish Minister. He did not divulge the nature of
his conversation, but expressed the lively hope that hostilities were
The resignation of President Madero is announced on the
! authority of the British Legation, where De la Barra took refuge
i yesterday after having urged President Maderc tC compromise with
the rebels.
