It appears that Federal commandern generally have been badly Informed as to the extent of tho disaster to tho .Mndero government.

Tlie happenings of the past twenty four hours have been of thrilling in terest. The people are thronging the streets talking of little else than the probable fate of Francisco I.

The ceremony in the salon was sim ple, Tho Minlsteis took the stereotyped oath of loynlty to tho republic Tho provisional President, accompanied by Gen. Illanquet nnd Gen. Diaz, and the ''abtnet drove In coaches to the arse nal nnd reviewed the forces that had helped Diaz unhotso the Madero Govern ment. This was tho occasion for thn evacuation of the arsenal and Diaz's troops, for the first time, were seen In the streets. Only 1,000 Mm lu Annul. Thoy presented an extraordinarily In teresting study. There were hardly mora than 1,000 nil told, although It had been believed that Diaz was In command of from 2,500 to 4,000 men. Led by Gen. Manuel Mnndrngon. the new Minister of War, who Is now con sidered tho military genius of tlie re public, Diaz's soldiers paraded to the Nntonal Palace through streets chokftd with hilariously enthusiastic citizens. Gen. Mondragon received a wild ovation. Officers of tho Federal army who had been exposed for eleven days to the wonderful accuracy of his machine gun tire, struggled to congratulate him nnd to win a word of recognition, Behind Mondragon marched one of tho most nmazlng collections of volun teer lighters ever gathered under tho banner of rebellion. There were officers, and enlisted men who had deserted to Diaz from the regular army and naval forces; soldiers, rurales, clubmen In Kngllsh riding breaches, young society men, street car motormen and conduc tors, peons from the plantations, ex bandits from the mountains nnd cadets from tha military schools, all armed with Mausers and revolvers, all be-! grimed, all In the highest spirits. Their belts were stuffed with ammunition and most of thorn curried two or three pis .'-! tols. Many hod their head or carried their urms In Ming. An they marched toward tho National Palace women charted upon the col the hemes of the day. Young girls J threw llowers In the puthway of tho one 1 time reikis. At the palace the army of Dlnr. dis banded. The army and navy olllcers that had followed the fortunes of the nepli-sw of J'orllrlo Diaz returned to their posts In the regular establishment, The picturesque rurnles In their buck- skin and nray uniforms melted back Into the rural police force. The club- men and business men who had dared nil to light against Mndero returned to their homes or shops to take up the ordinary affairs of life. The only members of the new Cabinet j not present to take the oath of office' and to witness the disbanding of DlazV army were David de la Ftteutc and Garza Aldapc. They aro followers of l'.iseual Orozci) uml are believed to be In Texas. The news here Is that Oen. urozco lias recognized the new Govern ment nnd that he will accompany De la Kuenlc nnd Aldape to the capital when they arrive to take the oath of ofllec. If It Is a fact that Orozco's allegiance Is assured one of the problem of tho temporary government has been solved It was with the notion that Orozco could be appeased that De la Fuento und Aldapo were appointed to tho Cabinet. Ilcnorl f Heioll Interior. Alarming reports were received this morning, however, from four states of the republic and from the headquarters of rebel leaders. The story that Gov. Caranzo of Coahulla has revolted against lluerta and has called upon the governors of other states to Join him was partially confirmed. There were reports also that Gov. Alberto Fuentes of Agua Callentes, the Gov ernor of Nuevn Leon nnd the Governor of Senora have Joined Caranzo In oppo sition to the authority of Huerta. The Government has sent peremptory orders to these governors to take the oath of allegiance or submit to death. Gen. Huerta hi preparing to send a force against the rebels. There la some reoson to believe that Kmlllann Zapata, the bandit lender of thn booth, will not fight against the new Government. At the National Pal ace it wns said that Juan Pacheco, leader of the Federal army at Cuautla, In the stnte of Morelos, had succeeded In winning over many of Zapata's fol lowers. Gen. Zapata, It was said, has sent word to the new Government that he will give his support to It If Gov, Patricio l.eyva of Morelos Is removed from office. Gen. Agullar and Col. de la I, lave, who have been In rebellion In the south, are reported to have declared for Huerta, and Genuvevo de la O Is said to be loyal to the new regime. These an- bits of information given out by the provisional Government. They may or may not be accurate. Meanwhile the foreign residents and tin people are hoping that the Government will be discreet enough to placate all factions and strong enough to quell re volts. Nobody believes that the millennium has arrived nnd It Is generally recog nized that Huerta l facing grave prob lem".

Members of tiie Cabinet nnd many of the Sena tors and Deputies made speeches for or against the killing of Madero. and several of the most earnest advocates of mercy were men who hnd lieen on Ma dero's proscribed list To-day the pro visional President and the Cabinet were discussing the problem, and another session of Congress has been called. The representations mnde to (Jen. lluerta by Ambassador Wilson have had their effect. Mr Wilson informed tlie provisional President last night Hint the Cnlted States would regaid with e. tteme disapproval a military execution of the deposed President and Insisted that Madero tie tried legally and fairly. The Ambassador was Instructed by the American Department of State to tell Gen. Huerta that the American Gov ernment would regard the execution of Madero as an Inhuman act. It was after this interview between the provisional President and the American Ambassador that the design to execute Madero summarily was given up, It Is now believed that the ex Presldent will lie tiled on one of several churges that have been preferred against him There are three ptlncipal accusations Mnurm ( liHrK-,l Willi Murder.

The deposed Vice. . m Piesldent, Pino Suarez, Is accused of aiding his chief to loot the trcosur.x Madero's peril has been accentuated ! by the story of a police otllcer thut wns made public In-duy. This olllcer says that weveral days ago he received an order from the President to assassinate forty-three men. Among these were members of Congress and newspaper correspondents. Tim police otllcer says that the order waa not in writing nnd thut he did not feel that he wns obliged to carry It out. Lrnesto Mudero, the tx-Presldent's uncle, is In no danger apparently. Ho was ut work In thn Ministry of Finance this morning straightening out tho affairs of tlie old administration. Tho family of Pino Suarez have been In refuge at the Belgian legation. Among the acts of the new Govern ment to-day was the promotion of four generals who had been passed over by Madero lu favor of volunteer olllcers who had helped him to power, Tho genernls who have been promoted are Aurello Illanquet, Joaquin Maas, Alberto Yarza nnd Caus, nil of whom with the exception of Illanquet were actlvo In tha fighting against Dlnz. The new Cabinet' Ministers took charge of their postw mid made only a few changes in their official staffs. Gen. Angeles and Gen.

"I have learned," said the AmbasFa dor, "that Madero sent telegrams to all of the State Governors, shortly before he was arrested, telling them that In tervention by the United States had been ordered. The embassy has copies of telegrams that Mndero sent to Gov. Guerra of Tamaullpas, announcing that Intervention was an accomplished fact. "I have been Informed that one of Mndcro's last official acts Was an order to the commandant of the port of Vera Cruz forbidding the landing of Am erican marines. "Mndcro's policy was lo assure Fed eral officials that tho Cnlted States, had Interfered In tho affairs of Mexico, und he cnlled on all ottlclals and the people, to stand by the Government In the face, of a nntlonnl peril. Fortunately, these orders did not have n bad effect. "If Madero had remained in ofllco two days lunger thn American refugees In the Colonla Ilotnn would have been exposed to the lire of dynamite bombs. In a final attempt to dislodge General Diaz from tho arsenal Mndero planned to bombard the fortress with dynamite shells from heavy mortars. "Oeneral Huerta has Informed mo that Madero and Gustavo Madero at tempted to murder him. He says that Gustavo Mndero wns the host at a ban quet shortly before the coup executed by General lllnnquet, nnd that Gustavo Madero offered him wine from a bottlo In which cyanide of potassium had been placed. "Gen. Huerta says that he had the wine nnalyzed und that the test revealed the presence of a quantity of the deadly poison. Gen. Huerta was distrustful und declined to tlrink the wine. "The General says nlso that Francisco I. Madero tried to assassinate him. Tho President called his Commander In Chief to a window of the Nntlmal Pal ace nnd suddenly excused himself. A moment after he hnd left Gen. Huertn standing alone, four bullets struck the casement of the window, narrowly miss ing Huerta. "The provisional President Informs me that Gustavo Mndero wns shot by the soldiers without orders from the provisional Government. The soldiers were advised to let Gustavo Madero es cape. Huclta had ndvlsed Gustavo Ma deto to go to Ills home and obliterate himself. The soldiers suddenty fired nt tlie President's brother, who was killed Instantly. "Gen. Huerta told me that Madero and his immediate family were not per mitted to leave the capital because tho Government had reason to believe that the train would be attacked while on its way to Vera Cruz. Tho provisional President nys that Madero's fate Is now lu the hands of the Congress and the Cabinet. Whatever Idea Gen. Huerta may have had as to the necessity for in dicting summitry military punishment on the ex-President has been aban doned. I mil told. The military regime has been ended nnd Madero's case will be handled by the civil authorities. "The American battleships will re main at Vera t'ruz until tho crisis has passed nnd peace is definitely assured.

Vnjen, father of Mrs. Henry l.ane Wilson, wife of the American Minister at Mexli city, has been greatly concerned for his daughter's safety In the past few days and was greatly relieved when a lettr was received to-day telling of her safety and giving an account of her life during the trouble. Mrs. Wilson wrote he.- letter on Feb ruary 0, 10 and 11. She says that Un people came Into the embassy until every spot wns taken. In the company was a mother with a baby seven days old and a dozen other children. The legation had laid In canned food for use In case of prolonged need The j wine cellar was stored with guns and ammunition, which were distributed among the Americans who guarded the 1 embassy. Mrs. Wilson tells how Mr. Wilson, accompanied by the German Minister and the Cubnn Minister, went in an automobile to the National Palace. The automobile was draped with tho American colors and carried the white flag of truce. Mrs. Wilson waited breathlessly while her husband was ! gone and she says that when he re- turned she nearly fainted with Joy that he had mnde the trip safely. j While the people were at the embassy, she dovoted her time to caring for the , unfortunntes sheltered there. Mrs. Wil son had been at a dinner with some friends before the Inst struggle. Sim was taken Into the dining room by Presl- j dent Madero and her scat was next to his. I She noticed that he seemed much ills- I turbed nnd did not eat anything. He was under a great strain, but no Infor- ' matlon up to that time had come to Mrs, 1 Wilson of what was to follow.

Wamiiimitiin, l'Vb. 21.- Information from Henry Lane Wilson, Ambassador to Mexico, fntislled President Taft to day that Francisco 1. Madero, deposed PreshUnt of .Mexico, will not be put to death, as has bten threatened since his downfall, This luformnlloii Is satisfactory to the Piesldent and the State Department. Ambussador Wilson Informed the Hu erta regime thut he was of the opinion that the killing of Madero would pro duce a painful Impression not only In the I'nlted States but In other countries. Tills opinion has been sustulntd by the Department of Slate, which In Its de spatches to the embassy remarked that the execution of Madero would huve a regrettable effect on public opinion In the United States. A.Jsurancs have since been received from Ambassador Wilson which have convinced the President that the new administration In Mexico city will not yield to demnniLs for the life of the de iHised President. While the conviction that Madero Is not to be put to denth Is satisfactory to the President, It may be stated that Mr. Taft was not prepared to Ko to any extremes on behalf of the former Presi dent. It was considered by the Admin istration that the I'nlted States has now too much at stake In the way of Inter ests of lis citizens to risk Its Influence with fhe 'new Government In Mexico by making a peremptory demand on Huertn that the life of Madero be spared. Serious resistance to the authority of fhe provisional Government Is feared at Vera Cruz. According to despatches from the I'nlted Stntes Consul at that city tho Federal nnd local officers have united against recognition of the Huerta Government. These officers have been meeting In the L'lta fortress to dlscim the situation and, according to the Con sul's Information, nre opposed to ac cepting the new regime. Thieie in the conference Included Gen. Velasco nnd Gen, Vnldez. the customs collector, the Mayor, tho police In spector, tho District .Iudgt nnd tho commanding officers of the gunboats In the harbor. The surmise In Washington regarding the situation at Vera Cruz is that tho opposition of the Vera Cruz group may easily be overcome by tho Huerta Gov ernment if it adopts a conciliatory pol icy. It Is believed here that tho re sistant will be willing enough to sup port the Huerta Government If soma con cessions are offered them In tho way of offices. In case of disturbance, however, threo American battleships are in the harbor at Vera Cruz nnd In a position to give ample protection to any Americans or other foreigners In that city. A plot on the part of sympathizers with Ma dero to seize the local government at Durango was discovered by the local authorities, according to report to the State Department to-day from Consul Hamm. The soldiers nnd other malcon tents who had Joined with them were arrested and disarmed. On the border there is great specula tion as to what attitude the rebel lead ers Salnzar, ItoJ.is and Campa, who for merly served under Orozco, will take toward the provisional Government. From Nueva Lareda it is reported that Oen. Huerta has Invited the military lenders who seized that town In tho name of Gen. FelK Diaz to come to Mexico city nnd confer with him. All "ther parts of Mexico nre quiet, accord ing to State Department information. MINNEAPOLIS MUSIC. Oi-elieslrn of Western I'lty I'nj. Seen ml Vl.lt ln . ViiHU.

Mexico Citv, Feb. 21,-Thn part played by Americans in general and American women In particular iIiii-Ihr the ten days horror of the bomb-mi-luent was of such character as t e.n for much praise. Of the lung IK 0f women who suffered cheerfully and un complalnlngly the dangers und hard ships of tho battlo four mimes stand out preeminently: Mrs. Harry Im,, Wilson, wife of the American Ambas. sailor, who Won thn iiffectlon of i.. entire foreign colony by her tireless attention to tho needs of the wmu, who nought n refuge near the cm Imssy; Mrs. Paul Hudson of lCansas, wife of the editor of tho Mexican llnrnlil, who remained with her husli.iini In his newspaper ulllce In the heart uf tin; battlo zone throughout th.. lighting; Mrs. Ilurge Mcl'.ill, wife nf another newspaper man, who with her hlldreu lived for a week lu the Kis, incut of her hotiso. with n machine gun llrlng from her front porch nnd slurp shooters on the roof, und Victoria llasi Ings, tin English girl, who acted as volunteer newspaper correspondent aiui braved great dangers throughout Hit battle. Of the other heroines tho Mexican telephone girls, who remained at their posts until all tho wires liud bci n ui. by shells nnd their building partly de molished, won grout admiration. Mrs. Wilson knew better perhaps Hun any other woman ln Mexico how cni u was the situation und on what a Mendc thread hung the chance of American soldiers being rushed hern In t lino to prevent n slaughter of foreigners ohco the anti-foreign feeling should reach a demonstrative stage. llut, encouraged by her husband, Mrs. Wilson limved Bayly anions the fear stricken refugee, cheering them with assurance that th American Government was keeping sun close watch on tho situation that thcrn l,M ,lJ " renl danger and giving nl tho aid In her power to those of thn women and children In actual war.:. Mrs. Wilson was assisted by other equally fearless American women, manv of whom seemed to enjoy the novel and exciting experience-, even while fully realizing tllolr peril. -Mrs. Hudson refused to leave her husband's ulllce while the building shook nnd rocked from tho detonations of the shells bursting overhead or quiv ered under the impact of a storm nf bullets from the machine guns, Ph entertained, fed nnd cheered the stranded refugees who enmo to the building, and It was not until tho armistice of last Sunday that she consented to leave anil go to her home on tho outskirts of tha city. McFall. serving In tho centre of th city as n correspondent, was unable M reach his homo during tho first seven days of almost incessant lighting thai preceded Sunday's brief armistice. He frequently called up his wife on the telephone during .lulls In tho battle but she nevor told him of her dire peril It was not until the armistice ca'tne nnd McFall went homo that he learneJ tho truth. Mrs. McFall's cheerful tele phone mesr-ages, meant to deter he husband from risking his life to reach her side, had been sent In the face o' tho fact that the tipper stories of hei house were riddled with bullets an'l battered by the exploding shells ninico to rout the group of Federal soldier who had seined It as a lighting posi tion.
