Symmes a rousing vote of thanks was tendered Mr. Waite and his associates. Compliment to Stout. President Reynolds stated that the board of directors had requested Frank J.

Mexico City, Feb. 23.—The situation is more serious than ever here tonight because of the ki'ling of Francesco I. Madero and Jose Pino Suarez, the de posed president and vice-president of the republic, while being escorted by over one hundred armed soldiers from the palace to the penitentiary last night. The official report is that an attempt at rescue was made and that while there was an exchange of firing the two prisoners jumped from the auto and were killed by chance bullets. Not a soldier of the escort was injured. The people are saying little, but there is a strong under-cur rent of feeling and the general belief, if it were expressed, would be that the two former officials were simply victims of the "fugitive law," which has been so freely employed during the whole revolution to put men out of the way. The report officially nu de in all such cases is that the prisoners tried to escape and were shot in the attempt. Gen. Huerta, the provisional president, says the tragedy was incidental to a fight between the escort and a party attempting to lib erate the prisoners. It is generally looked upon as a very serious mis take, if the men were murdered, and one that will tell heavily against the administration before long. The ambassadors of the powers have been invited to luncheon with Minister de la Barra tomorrow, but all, in cluding the American ambassador, have declined unless the mystery sur rounding the death of Madero and Suarez is cleared up.

The Princess. The Princess has just one vaude ville act tonight, but it Is a good one, and the moving picture program pos sesses especial merit.

Deputy Sheriffs Glenn and Rickerds, from Blaine county, fol- j lowed Asher to Lewistown, but the animals he had driven were left in a field at Forest Grove and cannot be located.
