BREAKERS AHEAD
ARE SEEN BY MANY
Peace in Mexico Still May
Be ifar in the 1
.Future.
HI Paso, Tc.\., April ?O.?In a low
adobe liousu, on jvhlch tlic sun beut
fiercely, loaders If I bo Mexican In
turrectlon, political and military,' sat
for four hours to day formulating an
agreement to he presented to tho Fed?
eral government through it3 poaco en?
voys.
At the conclusion uf the conference,
Francisco 1. Muduro, Jr., president of
the provisional government, announced
the. election by ballot of Or. Francisco
Vnsxjtlcz Gomez, Francisco Madcro
Sr., and .lose Pino Suarcz as the peace
commissioners of the revolutionary
pnrty. Francisco Madero, Sr., was
present at to-day's conference. With
tho provisional Governors of the vari?
ous States in which tho Insurgents
have organized their government
present, a definite basis of ponce terms
was agreed upon. Though no olllclal
announcement of the terms was made.
It was admitted by tunny that there
may l>o breakers ahead.
The ilrsl obstacle, It Is believed, will
be met when Francisco Carabajnl,
hcvtd of the Fodernl peace commission,
arrives, probably to-morrow night.
The Insurgents will want to know
exactly what powers have been be?
stowed on .Sonor Carabajal. It Is said,
for instance, that Sondra Branlff and
Qbrcgon, who havo been Interested In
the negotiations, will act with Sonor
Carabajal, but in what capacity is not
known to tho Insnnecto leaders.
.Should It develop that Sonor Carn
nn ja I is to bo the sole envoy, with
plenary powers, the Insnrrectos will
infest Or. Come* with similar cre?
dential!;, Francisco Madero, Sr., -ami
Rcnov Suaroz acting In an advisory
capacity.
The Insurrocfo leaders are determined
that formal negotiations shall not be
begun until the Federal envoys present
credentials authorizing them to net for
tho government.
The substance of tho lnsnrrccto de?
mands Is known In a general way. Tho
revolutionists Insist on participation In
government affairs, and point out that
tho only way to guarantee It is to place
some members of their party In the
Cabinet and to select at leust a tlozen
of iiicir supporters as provisional Gov?
ernors, pending new elections.
While the resignation of President
Diaz Is snid to be hardly mentioned In
the Insurrceto demands, the rebels be?
lieve that with a majority representa?
tion In governmental affairs, tho per?
sonality of the Kxecutlye will he ol
little Importance. They emphasize.
Ibe fact that thero Is no personal quar?
rel, but a political revolt.
On? reason for tho nhscnee of any
discussion at present concerning Pres?
ident IMnz's part In the forthcoming
transactions is the fact that there arc
few rebels who believe that Dlnz In?
tends to continue in the presidency
No one has assurances of any resigna?
tion; but the Insurreclos generally de?
clare other bunds arc steering the ship
of state In the Mexican capital.
The military leaders were Invited to
the conference merely to advise tho
pence, envoys of the progress of tho
negotiations. .
'Pnilu Wrecked by Hebeln.
Mexico City, April 30.?The week-end
special train for Cuernavoca, seventy
five miles south of tills city, was shot
up and wrecked by rebels lnsl night at
Kl Paine, a few miles from Its destina?
tion. Tiirea passengers and a negro
porter were killed and several others
injured. The engineer is missing.
Among those killed was Dr. Pelu
<Ussen-Scffor, a botanist of repute, who
formerly was attached to a department
of the .Mexican government as an ox
pert in rubbor culture,
The onglnGiiiHii was signaled to stop,
but crowded 611 steam Instead, fearing
that an attack was Intended. As the
train rushed past the point whore tho
rebels wero stationed, a volley was
tired through the windows of the chair
car. Once out of rnnge of the tiring,
the train slowed down, but not in time
to avoid being partly wrecked through
the tearing up of the track. The loco?
motive was overturned, untl it is be?
lieved ihnt the engineer was burled
beneath il. Traffic over the. Cucrna
yaco line In suspended.
IN EARLY PRIMARY
Claim That Poll Tax Lists Are
Not Available for Use in
Such Elections.
Another point of attack on the early
primaries which have been held or are
about to be held In this State is now
being discussed, and may be presented
t-> the Democratic state Committee nt
Its meeting here on Wednesday night
This Is that it Is Impossible, that a cor?
net list of voters can be 'obtained at
this time.
The parly primary plan provides thai
"all white Democrats who are or will
bo legal voters at the goitrni election
next following the. primary at which
I hoy offer tit vote shall be entitled to
vote at such primary."
Now. toe list of voters who may take
part in any primary for ofllcers to be
voted on In November will not be com?
plete until ncM Saturday, for poll
taxes may be paid up to that dHte.
Besides, the corrected lists will not be
available for thirty flays later, or .Inns
7. because those who have been Incor?
rectly omitted from the list may havo
th'olr names placed thereon up to that |
time.
So Correct l.lnts.
Therefore, it would seem to be dear,
according to the Protestants, that the
primaries already hold in the counties
of Franklin and Princess Anno arc ille?
gal, for Hie reason that the ottlcers of
election were not In possession of nny
correct list of qualified voters. It Is
not known what poll tsx lists, if nny.
wero used, but It Is manifest that fhey
wore not the legal and correct ones
which have not as yet been made up.
The. same argument would appiirontlj
apply to nny primary held prior to
.Inno 7. the day when the poll tax lists
for use In tho November election be?
come Una).
It has been already staled, as pre?
viously published in The Tlnics-Dis
patch, (hut the early primaries may bo
attacked because they are not being
held "not less than sixty nor mpro
than ninety days prior to the general
election." It seems that a lively light
may be expected in (ho meeting of the
committee. It would oppenr that thosn
candidates for county offices and for
the legislature who have been already
nominated, as well as all candidates
who are going Into the primaries held
before June 7, will certainly contest
any attempt to get the Slate Commit<
too to declare the elections invalid.
STRIKES BEGUN
Ten Thousand Men and Women
in New York to Quit
W.ork.
Now York, April 30.?Ton thousand |
or more inon mid women In throe
trades will ku on strike to-morrow, 1
May Day, say labor leaders here. Uy
to-morrow night not a wheel will be
turning In a single union machine
shop here, they assort, unless employ- J
ers grant the demand tor an eighl

ers add 1,000 machinists who walked
out Saturday
Tho machinists' strike overshadows
In extent the two others which have
been called by the watstinakcrs and
bakers, these affecting only isolated
'shops in Brooklyn and tin tho Fast
Side. The machinists are demondlhg
an eight-hour day In New York. Brook?

shops threnten to walk out In prolest
against the restoration of conditions
which existed before their recent
strike. These, they say. Include a re?
turn'to unsanitary surroundings and
a cut In wages. The bakers, it Is
claimed, will strike In the scattered
shops for better snnltnry conditions.
Labor leaders expect 2.000 workers or
more in these two trades to walk
out.
One of the largest employers or
machinists, 13. \V. Bliss ei Co., or
I Brooklyn, has addressed a letter to
each of Its L'.IaO employes notifying
them that there can be no compliance
with their demands and that their
places will be (lllod. -

LARGE E?RMNGS
till PREDICTED
Chesapeake and Ohio Likely
to Again Touch High
Record Point.
According to New York 'inanclnl ex?
perts, the ncl earnings ot the Chbsti
liciiko und u)hlo nailwtiy "HI at no
dlstunl time again reach the high
record tor 1910. when at the close of
the llscal year on June HO It reported
a surplus equal to a traction more
than 10 per cent, on Its capital stock.
Discussion of the road"* capacities and
possibilities follows the action or the
I shareholders, who. In their meeting
In lUclimond on Saturday, authorised
the Issuance ot $12?.000.000 in bonds.
It Is also said that the company has
something to look torw.nrd lo In In?
creased Income from its Hocking Val?
ley holdings, which comprise , morn
than JV.r.00,000 ot the $1 1.000,000 capi?
tal stock of that road. The Hocking
Valley Is earning between li> and 20
per cent, on Its stock and paying only
?I per cent, in dividends.
.tiny Still l?ny r. Per rent.
The llnnnclnl expert of the New York
Kvening Post speaks as follows of thu
situation:
"Chesapeake and Ohio's last state?
ment of earnings was for February.
1'nlike a number of other roads, (hat
company showed an Increase Instead
of a decrease in gross revenue; but
ttt, compared with 1010. was smaller.
For the eight months of thc year
gross showed n gain of $ 1.091.000; ow?
ing to an Increase In operatlntr ex?
penses, however, net was smaller by
>liCO,000. Then, because of tho $31.
390,000 I'.3 per cent, convertible bonds,
authorized at the close ot ISIO. llxod
charges for the eight months, less
other Income. Increased $010,000, mak?
ing the surplus for dividends for Ihr
period show a decrease of $1,1)09.000.
If net earnings for March. April. May
and June continue to decline al tln?
same rate as those for February, the
surplus for dividends for the fiscal
year ending June :io. Including the ad?
ditional fixed charges, should be about
$1,200,000. or 7 per cent. That would
leave a final surplus of over $l,nnn.onn
after ? per cent, was paid oil the $r,2,
79S.00O slock."
This expert believes n mistake was
made In Jumping the dividend rate
from 3 per cent, to S. 11 is stated that
the small shareholders were accus
to..ie<] to a conservative policy hi de?
claring dividends
