Mexico City, February 27.—'That investi

responsibility for the death of Madero

official statements is indicated by the
arrest today of Jose Zj^marcona and five
others, alleged to have been members of
the party, which attempted to rescue the
former president and vice president. They
are of no public prominence. Zamareona
is classed as their leader. No statement
has been given out as to their result of
the investigation.
Negotiations with the representatives of
rebels, especially the Zapatistas, continue
with varying success. The latest com
mission to confer with the government re
gaining co-operation represents Genevevo

Ncri, all of whom have gained reputations
for the thoroughness’ of their vicious war
fare.
Among the conditions set forth is that
all federal troops be retired from the
state, of Morelos and that the garrisons
he composed of an army made up of ex-*
rebels.
President Huerta has declined to grant
this demand, but this has not resulted in
breaking off negotiations. Meanwhile men
under these leaders have occupied Avot
clngo and Chaleo near the edge of the
lederal district and Juchotepec, a short
distance to the south.
Fearing that they will levy forced loans
and restock their commissary department

Florida yesterday.
The only known fatalities occurred at
Omaha, Ga., where three negroes were
killed when a building In w hich they w'ere
working collapsed, and in Crenshaw coun
ty, Alabama, where Rufus Summerlin was
killed in a building collapse. Greatest
property damage in Georgia occasioned by
the storm was'reported in the southern
section of the state. At Mllledgeville,
Ga., many buildings were demolished.
Twelve female prisoners w-ere injured
when the state structure at that place
collapsed. Forty children tei the Hope

miraculous escape when the building was
blowm down. Only one child was in

Many buildings were blown down and
large damage sustained in central Ala
bama. The heaviest losses are reported
to be ih Crenshaw, Pike and Butler coun

The property damage in Florida, accord
ing to late reports, was not serious. A
65 mile an hour gale swept the section

sonville. No loss of life was reported in
that vicinity.
Montgomery. February 27.—Accord
ing to long distance telephone mes
sages received today damage aggregat
ing more than $100,000 has been done
by a cyclone of marked intensity
which passed over Butler, Crenshaw'
and adjoining counties early this
morning. In the neighborhood of 50
buildings are known to have been
partially or wholly destroyed, while at
least one person Is known to have been

ing. Rufus Summerlin, living between
Fattsburg and Petrey, in Crenshaw
county, was killed in a collps© of the
building in which he was at the time
of the cyclone, wrhile Miss Beona Pat
terson of the same section of Cren
shaw county was seriously hurt. She
is believed to be dying.
Greatest property damage, according
to the reports, wras done at Greenville,
in Butler county, though later reports
received are to the effect that much
of central Alabama has been laid
waste by th© storm. Bong distance
telephone messages with Greenville es
tablish the fact that the cyclone was
at its greatest intensity at 6:30 o'clock,
when houses were unroofed and trees
uprooted and blow'n about in the
country’s waste .spaces.
At least 25 buildings in Greenville
were practically or wholly demolished,
including churches, office structures
and cottages. Two negro churches tat.

dustrial institute was damaged to the
extent of about $1000. It is reported
that the plant of the Purity Fertilizer
company at Greenville was almost
totally wrecked.
Mobile, February 27.—Telephone and tel
egraph wires in all directions were put
out of commission by a storm which
passed over south Alabama and east Mis
sissippi last night. Business is only ac
cepted subject to delay. Following heavy
precipitation in north Alabama and Mis
sissippi during the past 24 hours, flood
warnings have been issued for the War

Lightning Strikes Store
Haleyville, February 27.—(Special.)—
During an all mijfht storm the store of
W. R. Aldridge was struck and the back
end of the building torn out. It also
burnt the telephone wiro In two and en
tered the building adjoining, but did no
damage there
government, the minister of the interior,
Garcia Grandos said today:
“The government desires all reasonable
elements of the rebels to co-operate with
it and to this end will respect the state
rights, taking no part in internal affairs.
By tills means the government believes
the tension will be speedily reduced, but
if unfortunately there should arise in
some states elements of discord, the gov
ernment will use all its energies for the
re-establishment of peace.”
General Trucy Aubert at Torreon has
been instructed to take command of the
column acting in co-operation with Gen
eral Trevino at Monterey. The situation
iu Coahulla has not improved. Two
notable figures are prisoners in the south,
Antonio Hidalgo ot Tlaxcala and Am
brosio Riguero, commander of the ruraies,
who, just prior to the fall of Madero,
went into Guerrero to endeavor to recon
cile the rebels. It is officially said that
Hidalgo will arrive here tomorrow in
answer to a summons issued by President
Huerta, but another story is that he will
| be tried without being nrougnt to the
capital, under a suspension of the guar
antees, which may mean his execution.
i Figueroa is in pail at lguala, Guerrero.
A commission from Morelos, where lie
J played a most important role during the
Madero revolution, has appealed to
Huerta for his release, but the best con
cession which they could obtain was a
promise that liis life would be respected.
The situation in Yucatan appears to l
be solved by the resignation of Gov
ernor Valles and the appointment of Ar
cadio Kscobar. Valles is a brother of;
Senora Pino Suarez. The Yucatan colony ;
in Mexico City is raising funds for the
benefit of Senora Suarez and her five ;
children. Contrary to popular belief. 1
members of the colony say the family is
in straightened circumstances.
WOODROW WILSON
MAY ESTABLISH
NEW PRECEDENTS
<t ontlnucil From Page One)
sion was concurred in by Senator Johnson
of Maine.
The chief reason for the long estab
lished precedent of keeping the President
in the White House, a mile away from,
the capitol, is said to be a sentiment
in the House and Senate to what lias
been interpreted “as presidential*, en
croachment” upon the freedom of action
of Congress. *
Some democratic leaders in the Senate
said they believed Mr. Wilson would find
it impossible to leave his executive du
ties ami visit the capitol from day to
day, and that he would not iind it so
easy to confer over the progress of leg
islation at the capitol as at the White
House.
Some democrats expressed the opinion
that such visits of a President might
not be received with favor if he came
to lake a hand in shaping legislation.
“Much will depend on what lie comes
for,' said Senator Tillman. "Jf he comes
to advise with us, we shall be glad to
have, him: if lie comes to dictate to
us, as I do not believe he would, we
should not want him here. When he has
an opportunity to study conditions at a
closer range, I think we will change his
mind about coming."’'4
.Senators Fletcher, democrat, and Bur
ton, republican, spoke approvingly of
the plan. “We shall be glad to have
him; it will give us an opportunity to
get acquainted,” said Mr. Burton, “it

Marshall on Intervention
Philadelphia, February 27.—Discuss

Vice President-elect Thomas R. Alar
! shall declared that "l would spend
niv last dollar for fan Amernean citi
zen's life, but I would not spill one
drop of blood to save an -American
[Citizen’s dollar."
“It is very difficult to say what
would constitute a reason for inter
vention in Mexico," he continued.
"There are so many rumors that I
doubt if even those on the ground
know the real facts. There are charges
that a syndicate heavily interested in
Mexico is fomenting the trouble also
that' along the border there will bo
some Americans killed to force inter
vention by tlie United States. My own
view is that the troubles in Mexico
are due to the fact that there is an
upper crust and an under crust, but no
middje class in that country.
"f don’t blame those who have money
locked up in Mexico for wanting inter
vention."
The vice president-elect made it. plain
to interviewers that he was not in any
way reflectting the views of President
elect Wilson, with whom he was in
conference today in Trenton. Presi
dent-elect Wilson, he said, had dis
cussed with him names suggested for
cabinet positions, but that any an
nouncement regarding the composition
of the cabinet would have to come
from some other source.
Mrs. Marshall in an interview de
scribed the “hike" of the suffragists to
Washington as “too silly for anything;'
and med the American man for
thoughtlessness and lack of interest in
affairs which make women attempt to
right political wrongs.
“I don’t belong to an anti-suffra
gist society, because I would not do
anything to oppose the vote, if women
got it. and I ’would certainly exer
cise the right of franchise." she aded
"But women have yet to bring about

problem before they endca\or to han

PLAN INTER-DENOMINATIONAL
CHURCH FOR CHINATOWN
Chicago, February 27.—Plana for an in
U r-denominational church' for Chica
go'! new Chinatown, embracing the Bap
tists, Congregational, Christian, Method
ist and Presbyterian denominations, bate
been perfected to such an extent, it was
announced today that a co-operative
■’Ouncil of missions has prepared a creed,
constitution und set of by-laws.
Tile Chinese desiring to Join the new
church will be required to subscribe only
to the following statement:
"I believe that Jesus is the Christ,
tlie Son of God. and accept Him as my
Saviour and guide.”
The constitution provides fur Instruc
tion of members of the church as fol
lows:
"This church shall instruct its mem
bers from the scriptures with regard to
the fatherhood of God, the- divinity and

ciently distinct to serve as a basis for
association," he said.
PEACE OVERTURES
London, February 27.—The report of
fighting at Bulan yesterday appears to,
have been inaccurate. Alt official an
nouncement issued at Constantinople to
day says the situation has not changed
either at Bulair or Tchatulja, but the
bombardment of Adrianople continues.
Turkey has renewed her overtures for
peace on the basis of cessation of Adrinn
ople, employing the good offices of Russia
for that purpose. The Bulgarian cabinet
has taken the proposal under considera
tion, but no decision has been reached.
It is reported through Vienna that Servia
is sending 30,OtX) troops with siege and
field guns by sea from Saloniki to assist
the Montenegrin attack on Scutari.
Enver Bey Located
A Constantinople dispatch to the
Daily Mail says: “The mystery of the
whereabouts of Enver Bey lias been
solved. He returned h^ro today from
Gallipoli and paid a visit ro the grand
vizier. He will start Saturday for a
tour of the European capitals, in an
endeavor to raise money by the sale
of concessions."
Constantinople, February 27.—The
police of Constantinople have discover
ed a conspiracy against the govern
ment and arrested several prominent
officers and civilians. Among those
alleged to lie implicated is the former
military governor, Major Yusuf Saf
vet.
B AN R H E A BURNOWS
N0THINGOF ALLEGED
SUIT AGAINST HIM
(Continued from page One)
This is proved in the fact that after
the five days through which the con
tract ran. the management offered to
accommodate the members for one
third the original price, in other words,
for $1 the man per day.
Paid the Hotel $4800
“When we checked lip it was found
that we owed the hotel $ 1800. We had
contracted to spend with the Eutaw
$6000. Because it was apparent that the
St. James had not carried out its part
of the contract, we refused to pay an
additional sum of $1200 with which to
make up the $6000. We have the money.
George B. Ward, who is treasurer of
the marching club, has a small sum in
the bank at tlie present time. The rea
son for the suit is tiiat we declined
to pay. not that we could not have
paid. The reason for out* declination
to pay lias been stated. The St. .lames
hotel is one of the most miserable in
the world, unfitted for the entertain
ment of tramps. During the time of
the convention it was unclean. Its
walls breathed contagion. We slept
from 5 to 25 in a room. The condi
tions were horrible and but for their
loyalty to Mr. Underwood the Ala
bamians would have raised a row which
would have made itself heard through- j
out the width and breadth of Balti- |
more."

for His Advocacy of Co

Montgomery, February 27.—(Special.)—
Dr. A. D. Butt of Adairville. Ky., has

him for his advocacy of co-operativo
finance. Dr. Butt owns a large stock,
and fruit farm in Kentucky and he ex
pressed the belief that co-operative fin*
ance would result in inestimable benefit
to the farming classes throughout the
country. The Kentuckian further ex
pressed the belief that the committee
named by the conference of governors at
Richmond in December, of which com
mittee* Governor O’Neal is the chairman,

of others.”
