cully.
Rebel successes In tlio southern and
central parts of Mexico, where tho
resignation of President Diaz Is said to 1
bp preferred above all other demands
for political reform. It is known
caused General Mudero to lakn
the stand he did. He feared, it Is |
said, that his peace negotiations would
bo of little avail, no matter what for?
malities wero pursued, If tho main
Iskiju were disregarded.
General Mudero lo-n ght received
the following message from Mexico
City fr im Francisco Figuoron, chief of
the Insurgent forces In Guerrero:
"In personal conferenco to-day with
Minister Dlmantour and Ministor Gon?
zales Coslo. With tho eight thousand
men who compose my army I will un?
conditionally support the conditions
of peace being arranged by you."
Outlook Is Scrlou*.
New York. May 4.?Should the nego?
tiations for peace between Madero end
the Diaz administration fall "the coun?
try will be In n blaze of revolution
from one end to tho other as soon as
the news gets out." Thin wiis tho mes?
sage received here from Mexico to-day
by tho Bourd of Foreign Missions of
the Methodist Episcopal Church. In
letter written on April 2S by the Rev.
.lohn W. Ruller.
Conllrrntng the gravity of the situa?
tion in tlie clapltnl, there followed a
telegram from Dr. Butler, dated to-day,
reading: "Excitement exists. Outlook
Bcrlous. Circumstances have changed
for tho worse. ' Insurrection prevailing
throughout the field."
?Dr. Butler's letter In part says:
"Whllo negotiations for peace, are. ]
going on up In the Northeast, disturb?
ances in all parts of tho country seem
to be spreading. This Is particularly
so in the states of Guerrero and Pue
bla, and in the iatter state our work?
ers are being annoyed.
"Notwithstanding the victory which
the government forces won some days
ago in this district, near Atlixlo. a
largo part of the country seems to bo
in tho hnnda of the rebels. It Is to be
sincerely hoped that peace negotia?
tions will be pushed and will Include
not only the states where Madero
himself has been operating, but the
entire country. We are all hoping
much from these negotiations, but'
should they fall, the country will be
for you. That's why we want you
to take CASCARETS for liver and
bowels. It's not advertising talk? j
but merit?the ^reat, wonderful, j
lasting luerit of CASCARETS that
we want you to know by trial. Then !

TIDE OF TRAVEL
New Oaloams, May 4.?Following un?
qualified charges of unjust discrimi?
nation by the railroads against the
.South In the matter of stopover privi?
leges, the board of directors of the
New Orleans Progressive Union issued
p. call to-day to Southern commercial
nnd civic bodies and railroad com?
panies to partloipato in a conference
to bo held in New Orleans in August
this year, to be known as tho South?
ern States transportation conference.
In the resolutions adopted tho fact
is noted that the wonderful develop?
ment of the West Is largely duo to
the almost unlimited stopover privi?
leges granted by the. transcontinental
railroads, and It was declared that
these privileges are withheld from the.
South without reason. Tf tho South
is Plaecl on an equality with the West
and Fast In tho matter of stopovers,
the belief is oxpressed that a large
per cent, of transcontinental travel
which passes through the Northern
gateway will be diverted to Southern
railway lines, and will have a great
educational effect in directing tho at?
tention of the nation to the undevel?
oped resources rond possibilities of the
Sohth. ,
It was declared to bo the mutual In?
terest of Sou thorn California and the
South that visitors to tho Pacific coast
expositions *n 1315 should be. Induced
either to go or return through the
South.
It was at tho suggestion of Colonel
Collier, director-general of the Pan?
ama-California. Kxposltlon, to bo held
at San Diego, that the Progressive
Union took this action. Tho Southern
Commercial Congress has Joined with
Colonel Collier In inaugurating this
campaign,
Grosvenor Dawe, managing director
of tho Southern Commercial Congress,
and Colonel Collier will dovote much
of their tlmo during tho next three
months to this worlt, and the latter
predicted to-night that-the transporta?
tion "onferoJtce to be hold In New Or?
leans in August would be one of tho
most profitable meetings held In tho
South in recent years.
