carries. .MXXJCO CITY, Feb. 13 That Diaz
waa prepared for the threatened ov

ernment, which Madero promised
would be carried through today, was
shown by the fact that he had sta
tioned sharpshooters On the roofs of
building adjoining the arsenal and
bad dispatched a force outside the
1 nes to the west of the city, and
placed his heaviest guns In positions
commanding1 all the approaches to
his strongnom.
General Huerta, commanding thj
federals, had promised to storm tho
ifchsl poslt'on, but elected instead lo
employ artillery from various points
of vantage. Only once in the early
part of the day, did the Infantry como

moved some of tho forces to the

target for both shells and rifle flro
from that district.
Coincidental!-, the rebels succeed

towards the pa I ice was intended not
only to bring atout Its surrender but

point midway between the arsenal
and the palace. This shelling wrought
havoc among the buildings in that
section of the city.
The American Club was riddled.
The interior of the second and third
floors was completely wrecked and of
the forty Americans within at the
time, several had almost miraculous
escapes from death. Seven shells
tore through the walls. The first two
crashed through the reading room t L
the rront of th second story, and
others entered above the second
story on both tides.
In addition to the shell Hre, the In
terior ofthe American Club was m
forated in scores of places by bullets
from r'fles and machine guns. Tho
shots which entered the reading
rooms tore their way through tn
stone window, casings, demolisHcd a
heavy leather chair, and exploded
, with terrific force. Sharpnel was
hurled n all d'rectlons. cutting the
'furniture to ribbons, ripping the
floors and walls and puncturing In
scores of places the portraits about
