Lawlessness and murder on a scale which appears to have lost every re semblance to civilized warfare haB succeeded the revolution in Mexico, if the messages to the State Depart ment today are a real indication of the conditions existing in the dis traught and blood-stainod republic. Tho latest dispatches say that at least two Americans have been killed and another wounded when murderouB bandits fired from am bush on passenger trains filled with inoffensivo travelers. Trains Attacked. Attacks on railroad trains were made at three points and In tho case of the lino passing through Guayamas, service has been completely abandoned on a considerable stretch of the road. More bridges aro reported as being burned, and the desperadoes, (whether associa ted with the rebels or not, seem bent on creating such a feeling of terror that no person will daro to ride .on a pas senger train through the country. The general Impression at tho State 'Department today Is that Gen. Pascual Orozco Is determined to cither force the United States to recognize the bel ligerents or to Inaugurate such a con dition of lawlessness as to compel the United States to intervene. ' The State Department has received unofficial conflrmaUonaif., the .fact- that General Orozco has decided not., to ac cord any. official recognlUon to the State Department's representatives in 'the state of Chihuahua. If this Is really the program decided on by the rebel commander-in-chief, intervention cannot long be avoided, It was said today. It was said at tho State Department today,, however, that tho statement at tributed to the federal Oomamnder, Gen eral Villa, that he would kill all tho is baseless. A long message was sent this morning to tho consular representa tives In Chihuahua, however, to find out exactly what the situation Is. Intervention Nearer. For the first time since the second Mexican revolution started, unofficial admissions were obtainable at the State Department today that the , desperato conditions In Mexico have brought the United States Government face to face with tho problem of intervention. it is impossible to permit any con dition to continue where Americans are being caliy slain, it is said. For. the flitit time, too, the full effect of the pioclamatlon which forbade arms to the rebels and offered them to the fed erals is coming to make itsjlf felt. The dispatch to the State Depart ment today says that on the night of April 11 a train which left Guanajuato for Stlao was held up below Marti! by bandit. The train was not only wrecked, but the American conductor, named Kane was killed, and Engineer MoFarland, also an American, was bad ly wounded. Passengers were robbed indiscrimi nately and manv of them badly hurt. Troups are reported to be in pursuit of the murderers and bandits and several arrests have been made. Wreck Reported. Earlier In the same day another train was wrecked at Irapuato. This wreck was supposed to have been caused by a broken rail, the responsibility for which has not been fixed. The engineer, Zachariah Farmer, an American, was killed. A train on the Tehauntepec railroad waa held up for a short while near Santa Lueretla the same night by a small band of revolutionists. The reb els demanded arms. The services on tho Pan-American railway has again been Interrupted be low Juchltan. On, the road running south from Guay amas train service has been abandoned. In this case some of the assailants wero Yaqul Indians. Several bridges on this line havo been burned. ' Officials at the State Department fear to express an opinion as to what will happen when all the American employes on the national railroads go out on Btrlko on Monday. This morning's dispatch to the State Department says that all the Americans imprisoned at Altar have been released with the exception of one, L. D. Jones. Most of the Americans went to Nogales, Ariz., after obtaining their freedom.

ROOSEVELT FORCES EXPECT TO WIN IN PENN STATE TODAY Former President's Campaign Managers at Hour Primaries Begin Wire Ootimistic 1 Message to Washington Headquarters. By JUDSON C. WELLIVER. "We will be surprised it Taft gets to exceed ten districts in this State," wired the Pennsylvania Roosevelt leaders early this afternoon, just at the hour when the voting in the Keystone State primaries was beginning. This was not put forward as a "claim" for election purposes; it was merely information, given out at an hour when it could not possibly in fluence the result, and was based on the Conditions prevailing when the polls opened for the crucial primary that will determine Pennsylvania's attitude at Chicago. " There are thirty-two districts in Pennsylvania, represented by sixty four delegates. In addition to this, there will be twelve dclegates-at-largc. The district delegates will be chosen by the several district pri maries. The delegates-at-large will be named by the State convention. Should the optimistic prediction of the State leaders be verified, and Roosevelt carry a big majority of the districts, he would also carry the controlling majority in the State convention and get tho delegates-at-largo. Never did Pennsylvania deserve better its title of Keystone State than today. Between 2 and 8 o'clock this afternoon, the voters of he second Com monwealth in the Union will decide the fate of two Presidential candi dacies. ' If President Taft loseB twenty or more of the delegates to the Re publican national convention, he will be, by common consent, eliminated from the contest.

BY HEATH Clues to Slayer of Wealthy! Lynn Soap Maker Lead , to Wall. I ROBBERY NOT THE MOTIVE FOR CRIME! Authorities Now Believe Jealousy or Revenge Prompted ' the Crime. LYNN, Mass., April 13. TwentyJ four hotlrs after George E. Marshy the wealthy soap manufacturer, was1 found murdered, the police have nd more elites to the identity of the mur derer than when the body of Marsh was found in the marshes of the1 Sangus river. Every clue has led into a stono wall. Today the police of Lynn and the State police who have been called into the case admit that the Marsh murder is the most mysterious in the history of the State, and will rival the crimes which already have put to test the police of tho Common wealth. Working in Dark. They are working in the dark, as what! was believed to be a most promising1 lead, tho knowledge that the soap man-i ufacturer had been seen driving with aj woman, was exploded when the woman, In question accounted for all of her 'ac tions during the day, and shewed that! she had not be'en in Marsh's company, after 3 o'clock on Thursday. Jt Is, cer tain that Marsh was not slain .until that nlght. -. The police .are convinced, however that Jealousy, or revenge was tho motive1 for the crime. They also know, from things already discovered, that the per petrator of the crlnia wps some one of! unusual Intelligence whose ability to cover every track was most remark able. Because of this, they declare that when an arrest is made the community will probably be astounded at the promN nenco of'the accused. Robbery Not Motive. After conferring with Marsh's busi ness associates and members of the' murdered man's family, the Chief of! police today said that not a cent of hid money and none of his Jowelry had been disturbed. The first shot fired oaused Instant death, as was demonstrated by the mute testimony of the dead man' eye-glasses remaining fixed on his nose, but the slayer vindictively emptied' th contents of a magazine pistol into tho lifeless form. This the police accept as conclusive evidence that revenge, possi bly that of a Jealous man, was the mo tive for the slaying. A score of expert detectives began to- day a careful Investigation of the dead mllllonalie's private life. By thin method, they are convinced they will strike the most promising clue and, possibly be able to determine Just who had a reason for desiring to kill Marsh. Governor Foss. in addition to send-1 lng tho State police here to aid In solvJ Inn the mystery, will also offer a sub stantial reward as an Incentive to de tective work.
