delniie in the liou-e Tuesday this Is
Hit- week's program of congress.
Several conferences nre planned, In
cluding h caucus of democrats In the
house Wednesday night to consider ox
tensioti of the legislative program and
a meeting of reimhlican senators on
Tinsday to revise the list of senate
diiployeg. House Investigating ran
initttes will continue work.
There is much speculation as to the
prolialiility of adjourning, which Sen
ator Smoot and some others predict
as early as July 2", while Democratic
Lender I'nd.'i wood says, "If the extra
nwlon continues until late in the sum
mer or autumn," a more comprehen
sive scheme of tarirf revision will be.
iiiulettaki n hy the house.
Larly action on the reciprocity hill,
hoped for by tile president, seems un
likiiy unless the Hoot amendment,
which has been ahjected to as fatal to
til agi'fement, Is defeated.
.Mr. I'nderwood and other demo
crats who oppose the Hoot amend
ment, now propose to exert all the In
llnence they can to prevent favorable
action on the amendment, so that it
will lie unnecessary for the hill to be
lelcried to the lower branch of eon-
IS
iirc-s.

that it lias practically wound

business for the extra session
lias

i i
rentatlve -M,',- ul nut coi ' iticed
that
Ur si nale committee will 'Tint
pass upon any of their tariff bills, the
free list and v uo( hills and one yet to
ion"1, probably a revised cotton sched
ule on which a house sub-committee
is working.
Whether tho democrats of the ways
and means committee will take up re
vision of any other schedule, such as
t.ai;iir and sieel. will depend upon the
length of the session.
There is ,i probability that We will
undertake to revise other schedules
alter we have passed the wool bill and
iliMti d a cotton hill,' 'said Air. Under
wood, chairman of the ways and
means committee, today. "If the ses
sion continues until late into the Bum
mer or Into the fall, we might as well
go ahead with our tariff program. Al
l' r cotton, sugar and steel schedules
would naturally be discussed.
"Hut if the senate Is going to get
through with reciprocity and refuse lo
take any action on the farmers' free
list and th. woolen schedules, then a
recess probably will come and our
work can go over until next winter."
Hi iause of t lie attitude of the sen
uie tinance committee toward the
mu- tariff hills, .Senator Stone, hack
ed hy other democrats, has served no
tice that alter waiting a reasonable
time for the committee to act, mo
lions will be made to have It dlscharg
eil 1 1' .in consideration of bills referred
lo It, such as the free list bill and the
Wool hill. This action would force
discussion on these measures to the
'font and disposition or the bills in
that way might be had.
In the senate tomorrow the consti
tutional amendment providing for the
l"inilar election of Cnited Statea sen
ators will be voted on.
Indications point strongly to Its
pas-aae by the necessary two-thirds
majority.

JUxieo City, June 11. With the
public announcements of General
lUyos and President de La Harm
that they would accept the portfolios
of foreign relations and war In the
cabinet of Francisco I. Madero, should
he be elected president October 8, the
former rebel leader feels his chief
work in the capital is accomplished,
and tomorrow he will leave for a live
days' trip through the south.
He will review the troops of the
army of the south, under Amhroslo
Figiieroa and make speeches In doz
ens of towns In the states of Guerrero
and Morelos, where he Is not so well
known us In other parts of the repub
lic. The Intended collaboration of Heyes.
de La Harra and Madero, "for the
best Interests of the country," seem to
give the political situation here a more
definite turn than It has had In some
time.
The conference following the meet
ing of the three men yesterday was
so cordial that General Heyes and
Senor Madero left the castle in the
same automobile.
General Madero reviewed two bodies
of former Insurrecto troops today and
tonight attended a serenade and dis
play of fir;-.works nt the Zocnlo.
Telegrams from Governor Gonzales
to Madero, report that the situation In
the capital of the state Is now peace
ful and that no trouble is anticipated
in reorganizing the government.
From the governor of Sotiora, Ma
dero heard that the Yaqul Indians had
promised to be quiet. Their grievances
will be considered through special
envoys who may come to Mexico City
.to I'onfer with Madero.
Alunuel Hon!. in, who In name has
been minister of communications
since President de La Barra took of
fice, arrived today. He reported con
ditions in his native state as peace
ful. General Heyes, Dr. Francisco Vas
ipiez Gomez, minister of education,
of gobi rnacion, were among Madero's
callers today.
"Vote for Madero I don't want to
lie the cause for embarrassment." In
these words General Heyes might
have cond-nsed n manifesto that he
issued tonight as a preface to the
stutement that he considered it an
Inopportune time for the Mexican peo
ple tn have a close election. Having
declined the nomination, the general
requested all of those who would have
supported him to work for .Madero.

CHARGE AGAINST

STATE SECRETARY SEIZED
Accused of Taking Money Re
ceived as Fees for Filing In
corporation Papers; Claims
His $5,000 Bond Will Cover,
(By Morning Jmml Hprrlal Umm Win
Denver. June 11. Charged with
Juggling Incorporation papers, em
bezzling portions of the fees from this
source and failure to send certltlciues
to such concerns, August W. I'nftig
chief clerk to Secretary of St ite
James H. Pearee. was arrested about
1 o'clock this morning and tonight is
jln Jail pending an Investigation of his
hooks. According l .Secretary Pearee
tonight, I'nfug cotifesseil, stating that
he had tampered only with papers of
small companies and that his bond of
15,000 would more than cover any
slu itage In his accounts.
I'nfug had charRe of till Incorpora
tion papers and, according to IVarce,
j his schema was to notify Incorpora
tors that papers had been received,
endorsed checks covering the fee and
deposit them In the cash drawer, tak
ing therefrom an equivalent in cash.
He then failed to send Incorporators
the customary Certificate of authoi;
zatlon.
Discovery of the manipulation was
made by Secretary JYarce through a
letter received from a friend In La
Junta, last week. This friend com
plained that three months ago he had
received notification of the receipt of
incorporation papers from I'nfug, but
had failed to receive his ecrtiltcate.
Yesterday Secretary IVarce failed to
find a record of the filing of such an
incorporation paper and last night
made a personal examination of I'n
fug's desk and . found incorporation
papers of various dates which had
never been filed, t'pon this evidence,
I'nfug was taken Into custody jboat 1
o'clock this morning.
Karly today I'nfug was taken to the
secretary of state's office anil assisted
Secretary PearCe and expert aecount
nnls In a check oV books. How
ever, tonight Seiretiry Pearco stated
that the Investigation bad not proceed
ed far enough to estimate any short
age that might he developed by a
complete check.
I'nfug, who is from Pueblo, was
appointed chief clerk when Secretary
Pearee assumed office In January,
19011, and was reappointed to that
position In January of this year. So
far he has refused to explain his rea
sons for Juggling hi records.
It was explained tonight by Secre
tary Pearee that I'nfug has had com
plete charge of all corporation papers,
endorsing cheeks covering fees, filing
these papers and sending out certifi
cates to Incorporators. So far as to
day's investigation went, It is said to
have confirmed I'nfug's statement
that he has failed to file only on pa
pers of smaller companies.

The city wus hourly (levtroyed. Mazut
Ian, In the Mime state, surrendered
without resistance on June 2. These
advices were brought by the steamer
Herilto Ju ireK, which has Just arrived
from Mnzatlan.
The attack upon Cullacan began
May 30, at about D o'clock In the
morning. The assault was mado on
the east, north and south. The g irrl-
S( n was slowly driven back and after
three hours General Handera's force
of Insurrectos captured the chapel o'f
tho Sacred Heart. The building had
been fortified and tho loss of life :it
that point was heavy. Meanwhile
General Itiirhlde, advancing from the
cast on the town was sweeping all be
fore him. As soon as the Madertstas
were within the city they began to
apply tin. torch and to blow up with
dynamite the less Infbiiumablc build
ings. Shortly before noon Governor
Hodo, having no hope of defending
the place started for Altaltu with S00
men, but his retreat was blocked by
the Insurrectos. Meanwhile General
Honllla at the station of the Southern
Pacific railway of Mexico, was fight
ing against an overwhelming body of
Insurrectos. About this time the latter
captured the jail, where the political
prisoners had been released and , til
ers killed. Governor Redo returned
from his attempted retreat and an
appeal for an armistice was sent to
Mexico City, hut no reply enme. Culla

cluding soldiers, women and chlldron,
and other non-eomhatiints. After the
surrender General Tlerado proclaim

orders from the Madero authorities at
Mexico City.
Mazatlun, which not long ago fre
quently was assailed, Tinnlly surrend
ered without filing a shot. When the
orriehils of the place learned of the
fall of Cullacan and the bloody
scenes there, It was decided to sur
render. Mazatlan at that time, June
2, was surrounded by about 3,000 Ma
derlstns, while the fi rccs at Cullacan
were 4,000, As soon as the Maderls
tns entered Mazatlan they released
the prisoners In the cuartel. 'it Is
reported that the prison records
showed that there were 1.1144 persons
In confinement, the majority political
offenders, but the criminal prisoners
are wild to have been summarily shot.
Hefore the Mndoristas could occupy
Mazatlan the mayor, a inn j, rit y of the
government officials and most of the
soldiers went aboard the gunboat
Tampion, which had been anchored
off the city for weeks. Tile chief of
