A s!f n Jor. delicate looking woman w..o had been u gloat beauty so long as rwT family, tin- Maderos of .Mexico, . Were i.iiitint wiin uicir vast wi'iill i and kepi their Hands olf tin- turbulent polilcs of their country, camo hero yus- ( tcruay on tno steamship Monterey of the Ward l.lno. Sho was in deep mourning and trcm- ' tiled from nervousness, Inspired by the i recollections of t:.' dreadful days which 1 bro unlit about the ilialh of her bus-I bund, the Mi-u'an rri'uldfiit, and of her brothor-ln-l.nv. (Jusiavo. rionoru Jtarn I'. .M:ii!rro,,t'.ii widow of the poet who overthrew l'orllrlo Diaz nnd whose murder at mldnlRht In u deserted street shocked the world, came hero with nine members of her family to go Into exile. The Madns who ac companied her and those of the family who mot her at the pier fended off the curious and nought to .spare her annoy ance from camera men nnd questioner. There was little neod for such pre cautions, because Klanco at the little, woman In black told the must unob servant of her weakness nnd her grief Boforo starting for the Hotel Wil lard, however, Senora Madero spoke voluntarily of somo of tho happenings of tho period whllo her husband's life was In tho balance. "I had no hope," sho paid In a volco which was 'hardly moro than a whisper. 'When my husband was arrested by the Generals ho had trusted and when the privilege of visiting him and con soling him was denied mo I was con vinced that the traitors would be satis fied with nothing but his death. "They even refused at Ilrst to let me provide him with bedding and such comforts as I know he needed. It wa not until four days after he. was ar I rested that I was permitted to send him boddlng nnd clothing. And then when I was told that he had bom shot and I went with Mercedes, my slster-ln-law, , to the pates of tho penitentiary tho of ficers repulsed me. 1 cannot talk about it now. I'leaso oxcuso me." Mercedes Madero, a sister of tho late President and a woman of splendid bear ing and brilliant eyes, stood with Scnora Madero. It was plain that anger and bitterness as well as Brief filled her heart. She Hashed out: "They are cowanls and asnsslns! T, n woman, told them what the world will think of traitors and murderers'" Young i:vt.r!sto Madero, who was a student at Cornell when the President was ns-MS"inated, put his arm around the waist of rionnra Madero and led her to an automobile. "We hae nothing to say now," he explained. The members of the family who ac companied the widow of 1-Ynncisco I. Madero on the Monterey are Senora Krancli-co Madero, the mother of the lute President. Mercedes. Angola and Senora Kirhm. sisters. Maria, Mercedes, Antonio and I'ellpe Zlrlon, children of Senora Zirlon and nephews and nieces of the late President, and Julio Madero. o brother. The ten joined at the Hotel Vt'lllard and at Kruesto Mndero's apart ments nt 435 Hlversld" Drive, near 116th street, the members of their family that had come to New York previously. Among them are Krnesto Salvador, Al fonso and Cvarlsto. Thero are now twenty-five of the Maderos here. Julio Madero said he believed that the new Government had plotted to execute him. He was able to escape by tho narrowest of margins. When the revolution started he was In Tamplco supervising the Madero oil Interests there. ' He be.lleved that the President would be able to quell the revolt. The day after the President was nsnslnnted he learned that Hon. Huerta had Issued a warrant for his arrest. His friends counselled Iilin to flee. Ho boarded a launch and escaped to n small port near Tamplco, where he took lefugo in the home of Salvador Valero, who concealed him. furnished him with a disguise and finally escaped with him to Havana, whefe they boarded tho Monterey. Valero accompanied the Maderos to this city. "We believe," said Julio Mndero, "thnt my brother was murdered. The men In power hnve" tried to make a mystery of the killing of tho President and Vlce , President, but we have Information , which convinces us that they were assassinated." Josn Alonso, nn Importer with a busi ness here at 24 .Stone street, was n pas nengcr on tho Monterey, He witnessed the fighting in tho capital. "I saw several of the assaults made by Madero's troops against the Diaz rebels In the arsenal," said Mr. Alonso. "These attempts to capture the Cluda dela were utterly hopeless. The machine gunH on the roof and commanding the approaches simply exterminated the at tackers. On the night of February 10 I saw 800 cavalrymen ( barge the arsenal. The fire of the machine guns was so accurate that only six men of the 800 were left alive In half an hour. The streets weie piled with the bodies of men and horses." dipt. Arthur Smith of the Monterey was ii hero lo the member.! of the Madero family, who sow him prevent lluerla's soldiers from dragging On.

The captain decided that It wiih his duty to protect n politi cal refugee unless there were contrary urdeis from the 1'nlted Slates (lovern inenl. (luvlni hiin badly frightened. When the Monterey reached Pro preso Cnpt Smith decided not to run into the harbor, as that might be court ing trouble. Ho stopped the ship three miles outside, Piesently a launch crowded with Mexican soldiers sput tered out to sen and bumped against the Montoroy. A stout captain clam bered up tho accommodation ladder nnd excitedly demanded tho surrender of den.

At Ilrst the consular otllclals wore Inclined to think that Gnvlra shouM be surrendered. Hut ('apt. Smith asked them whnt authority they had for mnklng such a -uggestlon. He said he didn't know that It was the business of vommerclitl ugeats to Intrude In such mutters. "Have you any Instructions from Washington to demand that this refu gee be turned over to the Mexican Gov ernment?" naked the Ward liner's skip per, "So," said the consul nnd vice-consul. "Very well, then." replied Capt. Smith. "This man stays aboard the ship. As for you, sir." he added, turn ing to the Mexican captain, "return to your launch." The Mexican bristled, exploded Into lnnguage and cut the air with his lists. The Monterey's people wouldn't have been greatly surprised If the soldiers In the launch had fired on the ship. But nothing happened. The stout cap tain returned down the ladder nnd the Monterey slid out to sea. Oen. Gavlra Joined friends nt Havana, where most of the Maderos who arrived yesterday were waiting. There was a conference of the Ma dero family last evening at the Hotel Wlllard, in West Seventy-sixth street, but Alfonso Madero said that there was no political significance to be at tached to the family meeting. "We are not plotting," said Senor Madero. "We nre glad to find peace In a clvlllz-d country.

Many Incoming and outgoing liners were held up by a thick fog that blank eted the waters of this neighborhood during most of the daylight hours yes terday. The French steamship La Provence, from Havre, which stnrted up from Quarantine early In the afternoon, lay at anchor In the murk for several hours and did not reach her pier until 7 o'clock last night. Aboard her were two naval and two army officers of Trance who ate going to Arlington, Vu., to co operate with olllclals of tho Naval Ob servatory at Washington In determining the exact difference In longitude between Paris nnd Washington. They will use the radio station nt Arlington, the most powerful In the world, In conjunction with the French wireless station on the Klftel Tower In Paris. The visiting olllcers nre Meut.

After the isltlng commission cooper atiM In making the tests nt tho radio station at Arllngtm it will return to Paris. Lieut. Glgnon, who speaks English well, said that the method of determin ing tho difference In tlmo between Paris and Washington to obtain the exact or nearly the exact longitude would be found by simply subtracting the one- hundredth of a second from the time Unshed from either capital. Hitherto the experiments In determining the difference have been by cable, and that takes the fe.irfillly long time, from the mient'llc point of view, of nearly a second. That will never do in these wholes times, and that Is why the nailous are llgurlng It down to in lluiteslmal fractions. Later the exact different es In time between Important places all over the world will be found. IlAiriMoitE, Murch 15. The announce ment of Dr. Simon Flexner, director of tho Rockefeller Institute for Scien tific Kesenrch In New York, who spoke nt a special meeting of the Johns Hop kins Medical School last night, that he had isolated nnd propagated the g'erms of Infantile paralysis, Is considered by local physicians to bo one of the most Important In medical circles In recent years. Dr. Flexner refused to discuss the matter to-day, saying that his an nouncement carried all tho Information that he was prepared to give. Ho was seen at the home of Dr. Henry- M. Thomas at 1228 Madison avenue. "Does your announcement Include the statement that you have found an antitoxin for infantile paralysis?" he was asked. "No," he answered. Dr. Lewellys F. Harker, professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins, who had stopped to greet him, here Inter jected: "But It does Indicate a possibility of developing a vuelne from It, doesn't t?' "A possibility; yes," ho answered. Hut he added u moment later: "It Is too early to say wihat may result. It does do this. It frlviu us something definite to work on, which wo have not had before," Dr. Flexner explained that the net result of the discovery so far as it had gone was like laying hold upon somo deadly thing which "hod eluded man for Iodk time. Laying hold might not mean a complete capture and control, but with the grnsp strengthened all sorts of possibilities might result. Dr. Thomas, whose guest Dr. Flexner was, explained that the germs of a num ber of diseases have been discovered nnd yet efforts to obtain nn nntltoxln for them have, failed; tuberculosis for one. In others, tho discovery of the the United I oven immw quicaiy uiu uiruai'i) in nn aniuoxin. Diphtheria Is among these. Dr. Thomss udded that Dr, Flexner himself has dis covered an antitoxin for cerebrospinal meningitis, a disease which affects the same parts of the body as Infantile paralysis, although it is distinct from the latter. Dr. Floxner would not ills ousi what ho might have done toward obtaining an nntltoxln for Infantile paralysis, "If I hud had any more to say than I did miy I would have said It last night," he said. In explaining his discovery nt Hop. kins Dr. Flexner said that the organism which is the cause of infantile paralysis wns one of the smallest which had ever been Identified. As shown upon tho screen, in an enlarged view of a section of splnnl cord Infected with it, tho gorm appeared In a chalnllko form, In a wavy line. Dr. Flexner stated that In the cultiva tion of It the use of a medium freed from ovygen find boon found necessary, and that because it could grow only In the absence of oxygen It would never bo found In blood or In nny cavity con taining oxygen. In thn cultivation of It, tissue Infected with the virus was placed in a receptacle from which the air was drawn by means of n vacuum pump and under tho resultant condition thn virus was propagated. With this virus, Dr. Flexner said infnntllo paralysis had been Induced In monkeys which were Itjfected with It. Views taken from sections of thn splnai llrlek I" I rm In llHiikriiptcj.

To begin with, it required keen foresight and authentic knowledge to have con tracted early for the correct materials, because the radical change in modes has taxed the capacity of all the mills and the result is that today the prices of the favorite fabrics arc very high.
