At the same time the resignation of Miguel Macedo an Sub-secretary of the Department or Hie Interior became known. In the Cabinet as announced to-day the of? fice of Secretary of the Interior was left vacant. Speculation as to Its in? cumbent still favored Teodore Deheaa, Governor <>!

Mr. Inclan was said already to have received notice of his appointment by cable and to have left London foi Washing! on. The retirement of the Cabinet mem? bers has given rise to many rumors of further official posts to be vacated, not excepting that of President Diaz him? self. That Vice-President Corral will ask for and receive a leave of absence for a long term, if he does not In fart present his resignation to Congress at Its opening on April 1, was regarded ws well substantiated.

March 27.?James T. Harper, of El Paso, a captain in the Insurrecto army, arrived to-night from the interior of Mexico. He said that Kobert E.

(Continued on Second rage.) SUIT COLLAPSES Witness Fails De Forest and Court Rules for Defendants. BITTER CONTEST WAS EXPECTED Wealthy Peer, Whose Wife Eloped With Young Guards? man, Sought Damages From His Mother-in-Law and Let? ter's Brother?Notable Array of Witnesses. London, March 27.?The suit brought by the wealthy young Baron Arnold do Forest against his mother-in-law Lady Mary Gsrard. and the latter'.'' brother, Henry Mllner. for slander, way tried to-day and collapsed suddenl> when Lord Derby, to whom the slan? ders were alleged to have been .confid ed, took the stand and swore that h< had no recollection of the same. Sii Fdward Clarke, counsel for the plain tiff, thereupon announced that lib was unable to proceed in view of tho lack of evidence, and judgment for the de? fendants was returned. The case was heard by Justice Dar? ling in the King's Bench Division, anil, as all of ti e characters are well known, the courtroom wan crowded almost to suffocation by a fashionable throng. As many more vainly besieged tho closed doors, calrnoiing for admission. Seldom has a more notable array of counsel been engaged In a civil action, and a bitter contest was expected. The list of witnesses, most of whom are prominent in tho social world, was so Jong that these would have been suf li< lent to till the courtroom had all of them been present. Many, however, failed to appear. Wife Fled From Home. Baron de Forest, whose marriage to the widow of Monier, the chocolate manufacturer of France, was annulled subsequently entered society and mar, ried Miss Gerard, who is very wealthy, having inherited most of the fortune of the late Baron Hirsch. The wife who Is described us beautiful and ac? complished, later vanished from hoi home, and. according to the plaintiff. In the company of Lieutenant H. C. S Ashton, of the Second Life Guards, and a friend of the family. The plaintiff alleged that the con? duct of his wife was approved by Lady Gerard and Milner in utterances re? flecting on him. He charged that they had accused him of having beaten his wife, kicked her downstairs and gen? erally behaved with such outrageous brutality as made It Impossible for her to live longer with him. Mllner Mnkc* Denial. Milner, who married the Duchess of Montrose. denied having uttered the alleged slanders, and set up the alter? nate claim that if the slanders were f-poken they were true in substance and spoken on a privileged occasion In answer to a confidential inquiry. Denial also was made that the plain? tiff's reputation had been damaged. Sir Edward Clarke opened the pro? ceedings by describing the married life of the De Forests, which, he said, was happy until one night in Mav. 1909, when, after a ball, the baroness refused to go home with her husband. Instead, she went away with the voting guardsman, Ashton. and on the" next day confessed to her husband in the present* of her mother and uncle, Milner. it was stated, that she had been at fault. The matter was patched up and the baroness returned to D? Forest. Last year Da Forest sought election to Parliament. He is a Liberal and h s wife's relatives are Tories. Ills speeches in the campaign incensed his wife's relatives and the alleged slanders were said to have followed. Soon after? ward the baroness resumed companion? ship with Ashton. It was declared, and January 28 Do Forest found her wed? ding ring in an envelope, together with the announcement that she had gone away with tho lieutenant, thus com? pleting the rupture between the fam? ilies. Eloped to Pahna. In the course of his statement Sir Fdward divulged that it was the Baroness De Forest with whom Ashton eloped to Palma in February, 1910, in? stead of the (laughter of a high court functionary, as was reported at the time. Subsequently De Forest again forgave his wife. Sir Fdward concluded by saying that he would call, among witnesses for the prosecution, Home Secretary Churchill, Lord Castlereagh and Lord Derby. Tho latter was alleged to have heard the slanders, but when he was called to the witness stand said that he had no recollection of having heard the re? marks set forth by the plaintiff. At this Sir Edward said that ho would go on farther, as he was unable to develop the expected evidence. The case against Milner having failed, that against Lady Gerard also was dropped, and the court ruled for the defendants. WALL STREET INVADED Masked Men I,tue Boys Against AVnll and Hob Tbem. ? New York, March 27.?A trio of masked men, armed, invaded the finan? cial district late this afternoon, lined eleven messenger boys against the wnll in the dressing room of the Western Union Telegraph Company's office In Wall Street, and took from them the'r week's wages.

This was the last of three daylight holdups to-day. A widow was beaten and robbed on tho street, and a man robbed of his watch in a hallway.

INSURGENTS FAIL TO ATIEND CAUCUS Regulars Split Their Votes Among Twenty Five Candidates, SHEEHAN STILL IN THE RUNNING Another Meeting Will Be Held To-Night, and It Is Expected to Prove Beginning of End of Long Senatorial Struggle. Republicans May Take a Hand. Albany, N. Y., March 27.?The sec? ond Democratic legislative caucus failed to-night to select a candidate for United States Senator and was call? ed to reconvene to-morrow night Twenty-five candidates were voted for, William F. Shcehan leading with a vote or twenty-eight?less than a third of those taking part. Those receiving the next highest votes were Augustus Van Wyck, 7; Isadur Straus, 5; John .). Fitzgerald, 6. and Daniel Fj Cohalan, 4. Governor Dlx received ten ballots. Helcartcd From Pledge*. Ninety of the 110 Democratic mem* bers of the Legislature answered the roll call. Several members who have ligured as strong advocates of Mr. Sheehan"s candidacy acknowledged in declaring their voles that his election had ceased to be a possibility, and that the reconvening of the caucus re? leased them from whatever pledges might have been incurred by attena ance upon the llrst caucus. This was the general Impression among the Shechan advocates, who expressed the opinion that the reconvening of tht> caucus to-morrow night would mark the beginning of tho end of the most protracted senatorial contest ? which this State ever has known. Several of the members to-night scored the insurgents for their failure to attend the caucus. The general opin? ion in both the Democratic camps was that a Democratic Senator would bo elected in time to take his seat when the extraordinary session of Congress convenes a week from to-morrow. Overtures to the Insurgents who have been voting against Shcehan were given form to-day at a conference or i Itepubllcan Senators. ? Senator BrneKeu, who presided, ex ! plained that the purpose of the confer ; ence was to ascertain the true posl ' lion of the Insurgents. It was finally agreed that a pronunciamento should i be issued calling upon them to submit the names of candidates for Senator : upon whom they would be "filing to concentrate their support. May Support Democrat. : The Senators who attended the con ? ference agreed without lisscnt that ' if such a list should Include a broad ' minded man whom they thought j worthy of representing New York in ! the Senate, the fact of his being a i Democrat would not Interfere with ' their supporting him. On the other hand, if the Insurgents j declined to submit such a list, they I say it will put them on record as be ? Ing mere mischief-makers, and that the ' need of having a full representation ! in the United States Senate may bring : about overtures of the Regular Demo ; crats. ; Although the Republican Assembly j men had been summoned to be In Al j bany before to-day's ballot, they di? ! not Join the Senators in the confer i ence, as it was understood that Leader i Merrltt did not entirely approve of its I purpose. He told Senator Brackett j that he would issue a call for another ! Republican caucus, but was opposed to I the conference plan. * Meanwhile Senator Roosevelt was ? holding hurried conferences with his fellow Insurgents and occasionally with a Republican. Until formal over? tures were made to him by the Repub? licans, he said, he would have nothing to say as to their plan. COMMITTEE AT WORK Entirely New Set of Rillen May Be Formulated. Washington, March 27.?Democratic members of the new Committee on Rules of the House, headed by Repre? sentative Henry, of Texas, the chair? man, met to-day, and will be in session daily until Congress convenes, April 4. The committee will endeavor to formulate its report in time for con? sideration at' the Democratic caucus next Saturday. In order to accomplish this night sessions may be necessary. It is probable that the committed will recommend an entirely new set of rules, though it will be guided largely by the rules of the last Demo? cratic House in the Fifty-third Con? gress. Charles R. Crisp, the new Houso parliamentarian, whose father was tho Speaker of the last Democratic House, is sitting with the committee in its deliberations. The matter of minority representa? tion, it whs declared to-day, would bo for the Democratic caucus to deter i mine. The opinion prevails, however. among Democratic leaders, that con j trol of minority selections on commit l tees should be held by the. minority ', party, the majority determining only i the numerical allotment on the va j rlous committees. PREACH Fi?rTe?CE Churches Will Unite in Forwnrdlng Arbitration Movement. Philadelphia, March 27.?Dr. William H. Roberts, stated clerk of the Presby? terian Church, and chairman of the executive committee of the Federal t Council of the Churches of Christ in i America, to-day sent out a retpiest ! that sermons be preached in all I churches In the federation next Sun? day upon the subject of "Arbitration? a Substitute for War."

Dr. Roberts says the churches of all England have forward? ed a cablegram asking the churches of America to unite with them In the pre? sentation next Sunday, from all the pulpits, of the subject of the arbitra? tion between England and the United States now pending. "The ties between Groat Britain and Ireland and tho United States of America are such as to make this ap? peal both impressive and urgent," he adds.

Philadelphia, Pa., March 27.?A se? vere electrical storm, accompanied 'by a high wind, which at times blew with cyclonic force, swept over the north? ern section of this city shortly after 6 o'clock to-night, leaving destruction Slid death in its wake.

The President hasi had before him for several weeks. applica? tions in both cases, and it whs learned to-day that he will follow the rec? ommendations of '?' At to r nay - Gen era i VYlckersham. It is understood that Mr Wlekershnm recommended that inas? much as Walsh will be paroled under the new Federal law next September justice would be better served if ex? ecutive clemency were not extended to him. In the case of Morse it is under? stood the Attorney-General was averse to any immediate relief, but reepm memied that if there was to be a com," invitation it should be such as to make the sentence expire in live years. In that event Morse would he, released after serving three , years and eight months, which includes the usual al? lowance for good behavior.

These judges returned a mandamus against Judge Frank .Gor? man.'of the'Common Pleas Court, las? week, preventing him from trying 1 George H. Cox for perjury.

GETS ALARMING REPORTS Official Advices Say That Con? dition in Mexico Is Near Anarchy. Washington, D. C, March 27.?There are official reports before tho Presi? dent's Cabinet to the effect that the political situation in Mexico is serious ?in fact, much more serious than has been Indicated by tho dispatches com? ing- out of Mexico City. This is true, In spite of the reassur? ing incidents of the past few days, re? sulting in the resignation of the whole Din-/ Cabinet and the formation of a j new ministry. So grave are tiie conditions outlined In the .statements made to the Presi? dent that Mr. Taft has decided this I is not the time to put out on official j statement regarding the purposes of I this government. K.\ pinmit Ion Planned. It was generally expected that the President would fake the country into his confidence as soon as lie returned to Washington had tell the pcoj.de just [exactly what his object was in sending ! troops to the Mexican frontier. . This, it is said, he would have done but for the fact that he found the in? ternal .conditions in Mexico so disturb? ing that any .statement at this time : might be premature. To deny that th? troops were sent to the border to protect (lie interests of Americans across tha line might prove contrary to the neces? sities liable to arise. Therefore, no statement has been put out, Only the suggestions made at the time the President started South have been put out. and not one word of official explanation has been forth coining. The exact nature of the reports laid before the Cabinet by the President can only he guessed. The Same is tru,. as to their source. All that Is known positively Is, that the state? ments are received through oftlrdal channels and that they show that the Southern republic is in a state of near anarchy. Secretary Knox had a long conference this afternoon with the j President on the Mexican situation. Taking No Chancen-.

The Presirlenl does not intend to send in a message to the extra session of Congress on the Mexican situation oi even refer to it, except in an inci? dental way; unless either the House or Senate orders an Inquiry. of course, if the army stays in Texas long enough to require a detlcioncy ap? propriation, it will be necessary for the President to explain to Congress the reasons for asking for more money This is (i> matter, from the Whito House standpoint, for future consid? eration, and it Is not now of im? mediate concern to. the President.

New York, March 27.?Fixing of ths blame for the loss of 112 lives ?n the Washington Square lire on Saturday drew to a focus to-day the energies of the district attorney's staff, tha tire marshal, the coroner, the State Labor Department and Borough Presi? dent McAneny. of Manhattan. Grand Jurymen turned personal probers. and an additional grand Jury, in a formal resolution presented to tho Court of General Sessions, offered its aid to the district attorney, and declared that some one should be prosecuted for the disaster. What tho probers found: Evidence that doors nt exits swung inward; the crumpled llru escapo In tho air shaft, the one lire escape blocked by iron shutters when opened, ah empty water tank on the roof and the practice prevalent among cutters of lighting cigarettes a few minutes before quit? ting time. All this and what is yet to be ferreted out will be placod speedily before the grand jury for ac? tion. District Attorney Whitman an noti need. Fire Marshal Beers summoned thi proprietors of the Triangle Waist Com? pany and several employes to testify at a public hearing. "So far as I can discover." he said, "f'cre has never been a tire drill in this factory. In my opinion it would take 700 girls three hours to reach the street by the one tire escape in that building. Nino-tenths of the em? ployes cannot speak English, yet I could not find a sign In Yiddish or Italian pointing out the fire exits." Cigarette to Blame. Tho lire marshal said be was con? vinced that a cigarette, lit. by a cutter and thrown in a heap of clippings, had started the fire. A relief fund for the sufferers is headed by- a ??,000 donation from An? drew Carnegie. The United Hebrew Charities--, the Austrian Hebrew Free Burial Association and other organiza? tions came to the fore with aid. Thirty-lhreo bodies, most of then* shorn of all semblance to human form, He unidentified to-night at the Chari? ties pier morgue. Twelve persons, most of them girls In their teens, are fighting for life In hospitals. Half a hundred funeral trains trailed through the East Side and the Italian district near the factory today, and as many more are scheduled for to-morrow The unidentified dead will be burled in a single grave, but will be held as long as possible to give relatives and friends an opportunity to claim them. Latest figures place the death list at 142, the only death during tha twenty-four hours ai\ong those In? jured occurring to-night. Of those, 1H3 bodies were taken from the scene of the disaster and eight died In hospitals. The list will ba swelled, surgeons say. by others, who, still living, have no chance to re-, cover.
