REBELS, REPORTED
HURT IN BATTLE
Mexican Commandant at Ciudad
Porfirio Diaz Declares Revolt
Leader Is Badly Hurt
INSURGENT FORCES ROUTED
Unofficial Dispatches Say District
of Uprising Is Quiet, but
Raiders Still Menace
EL PASO, Nov. 24 Whether wounded
or not, local Americans familiar with
the situation to the south declare that
news that Madero Is actually in the
country Is certain to augment the po
litical unrest. Those who place a more
serious construction on the recent dis
orders assert i that Madero's presence
will serve to concentrate the Isolated
croups which bare been Incapable of
anything like united action, owing to the
absence of a recognized commander-in
chief.
An opinion much more widely ex
pressed, however, is that the revolu
,i.._. which {;.•:__:_! !_..-._ feared a year
ago went . off "half-cocked" and that
nothing now can make It a serious
threat to the Din. administration.
Nothing confirmatory of the report
of the wounding! of Madero was received
here tonight.
[Associated Press] -
EAGLE PASS, Texas, Nov, 24.—
Mexican commander ln Ciudad Porfirio
Diaz tonight informed Customs Col
lector R. W. Dowe that Francisco I.
Madero, claimant to the presidency of
Mexico, was severely wounded in a
fight today at Guerrero between his
forces and 200 rurales and cavalry
commanded by Col. Fuentes and Lieut.
Nlcanor Valdez.
The Mexican commander said his ad
vices came directly from a trustworthy
citizen of Guerrero who came in during
the day. According to the report, Ma
dero led his force when federal troops
engaged them. The engagement was
fierce for a time. • ,
Madero was ..en to fall from his
horse. He was carried to the rear
and his forces fell back. The federal
troops are reported to have followed
up their advantage, -< scattering the
rebels to the hills. The nature of Ma
dero's wounds are unknown. Collector
Dowe tonight said that he would wait
for absolute confirmation before mak
ing any report. . __ »
QUIET IN THE GUERREHA
DISTRICT IS REPORTED
200 Revolutionists Still Active
Are Classed as Bandits by
Mexican Dispatches
LAREDO, Tex., Nov. Mexican
Consul Miguel E. Diebold today re
ceived official advices that quiet had
been restored in all places throughout
the Guerrera district in Chihuahua, al
though it also was stated that 200
revolutionists are still making attacks
on villages. . The consul says they are
not revolutionists, but bandits who are
attempting to rob and pillage.
General Vlllar, stationed in Nuevo
Laredo, Mexico, today received advices
from all points in his jurisdiction, ex
tending from Matamoras to Columbia,
thirty miles above Laredo on the Mex
ican side of the river, saying that ev
erything Is quiet'along the border and
in the immediate interior. The Mex
ican government still maintains a cor
don of troops to guard the border.
On the United States side of the Rio
Grande troops are on guard from
Brownsville to Del Rio and according
to information covering this stretch of
territory quiet prevailed all day.
' Consul Diebold said the Mexican gov
ernment had the situation well in hand.
Sporadic outbreaks may occur, he said,
but the troops were adequate to cope
with the situation.
ALARMIST REPORTS HEARD
Notwithstanding the tranquil condi
tions alarmist rumors are still in cir
culation. These rumors are not con
fined to the border towns, but are cur
rent even in Mexico City. A rumor cur
rent there today and reported to the
minister of war was that an attack
would be made on Matamoras today or
tonight. This rumor was communicat
ed to General Villar, who in turn im
■ mediately got in touch with his aids.
After a thorough scout of the coun
try a reply was sent to General Villar
that there were no Indications of an
outbreak in Matamoras or vicinity. Ac
cording to the rumor in the, capital
the ■ telegraph wires were to be cut so
that any report of attack would be
impossible. Up to a late hour tonight
the wires were working. '' i
General Treviho, who left Monterey
yesterday with a trainload of soldiers
for Torreon over the Mexican Interna
tional railroad, had not arrived late to
night. It is said he left the train to
march with his troops overland to some
point in the Guerrera district ln Chi
huahua.

MONEY TAKEN BY EVANS
FOUND IN SAN FRANCISCO
Angeleno Deposited of the
Coin Taken from Local Bank
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 24.—Wilson
B. Evans, former teller of the Far
mers and Merchants' bank of Los An
geles, placed $8000 of the funds he is
alleged to have embezzled from the
bank In the vaults of two San Fran
cisco banks, according to a statement
made today by I. W. Hellman, Jr., a
local banker.
Evans came to San Francisco from
Los Angeles ! about the time of the
Times disaster and shortly afterward
shipped on the power schooner Kate
for Central America. The eager quest
for the suspected dynamiters of the
Times building led the detectives to
Investigate the movements of the Kate
and as a; result Evans was arrested
when the vessel arrived at Acapulco.
Held at first as a dynamite suspect, he
was afterward identified as the missing
bank teller.
Evans is said to have used the pseu
donym of Adams in placing the money
in the safe deposit vaults here. In
telling of the discovery of the fund
Mr. Hellman said today:
"We. have recovered this cash and
we also have the $10,000 that was found
on Evans when he landed. This, with
the $10,000 from the surety company
nearly covers the amount of his defal
cation." -• ■ v-

NEW YORK, Nov. 24.—Immigration

Leneve, the young woman who fled to
Canada with Dr. H. H. Crippen, is on
her way to this country. Commis
sioner Williams declines to say any
thing which might be regarded as pre
judicing the case.
"The case will be investigated as
the facts warrant," he said.
If she is not considered a desirable
alien, the woman can easily be kept
but of the country, despite the fact that
the English courts acquitted her of be
ing an accomplice of Dr. Crippen. If
sentence of deportation is passed on
her, it probably will be on the ground
that she crossed the, Atlantic with Dr.
Crippen ,to whom she was not. mar

DEATH AND RUIN
CAUSED IN ALASKA
BY GLACIAL FLOOD
Lake Bursts from Snow Moun
tain, and Icebergs Sweep
Down on Valley
CABINS GROUND TO PIECES
Peculiar Catastrophe Destroys
Mine Camps in District
Near Cordova
(Associated Press)
CORDOVA, Alaska, Nov. 24.—A dis
astrous flood, caused by the loosening
of the waters of a lake in Bering gla
cier, swept the Bering valley today,
devastating a large section of the coun
try southwest of the great' ice fleld.
Many miners' cabins were swept away
and grave fears are entertained for
the lives of the occupants.
Icebergs of gigantic size were torn
loose from the glacier and dumped Into
the river. Swept before the Huge rush
of water which caused the Bering river
to rise ten feet in four hours, these
great masses of ice carried everything
before them In their rush to the sea.
Cabins near the river were carried out
by the rush of water and then ground
to pieces by the ice. i
The roar of the flood 1 and the grind
ing and crashing of the enormous Ice
bergs could be heard six miles away.
Grave fears are entertained for the
safety of K. Smith and H. S. Wire, two
prospectors who were last seen ln the
flooded region.
Searching parties have been ordered
to go over the devastated section to
determine the extent of the damage
and ascertain whether there has been
loss of life.' Relief parties have been
sent from Katalla to take aid to the
stricken miners.
Details of the destructive flood are
lacking, only meager reports having
been received from Katalla, the near
est town to the Ice swept district. '
Bering glacier is east of Katalla and
is about thirty miles inland from Con
troller bay, Gulf of Alaska. It is the
source of the Bering river, which flows
through the famous coal field of that
name. '
This is the second peculiar glacial
action of this nature to occur in this
part of Alaska within recent years.
Great damage was done two years ago
when a similar internal lake broke
away from Miles glacier in the Copper
river valley, - sweepig away several
wiles of newly laid track of the Cop
per River railroad. ' ... .
PRACTICAL JOKE FAILS;
BOOTBLACK GETS TURKEY
'Dat Bird Am in de Oven—Take
It!' Says Thankful One
PASADENA, Nov. "Gen'lemen,
dat bird am' in de oven. De temp'aturo
ob dat stove am high. Burn yo' hands.
Burn yo' hands If yo* all want to, but
I'd advise yo' all not to take a chance
at rescuin* dat turkey."
And thus ended the pursuit of a
holiday dainty which Ewing G. Small,
negro bootblack, secured through the
miscarriage of a practical joke.
The story leaked out yesterday when
the case of James Ross and Professor
Coe, pianist, against Small was set
tled out of court. According to wit
nesses, Ross and Coe thought to play
a joke on the bootblack by giving him
a fictitious order on a local market
for an eight-pound turkey, signing the
order "A. Kidd."
When Small called on Manager Heck
of the market with the information
that Ross had sent him for a turkey,
the bird was wrapped up fqr him with
out the fake order being scrutinized,
and instead of being "stung" the
negro found himself in possession of
something for which to be thankful.
.When the would-be jokers dis
covered what had happened they en
deavored to recover the turkey. It
is said half the negro population of
Pasadena rallied to the support of
Small, and a race riot was averted
by the latter mounting his bicycle
with the bird under his arm and mak
ing haste for his home, where inside
of five minutes the "gift" was placed
in the oven. ,
A settlement was reached through
Ross and Coe paying $1.40 each for
the turkey, and Small inviting the
victims to help partake of the bird.

CAR CRASH WELDS
FATHER AND SON
Youth, Estranged from Home, Is
Reconciled with Injured Par
ent at Scene of Accident
Pushing through a crowd that had
gathered about his father, A. Dletfler,
sr., a baker living at 917 Hawthorne
street, who had been injured a moment
before In a street car accident 'at
Twelfth and Burch streets, A. Dlemer,
Jr.,- the son, ended an estrangement of
eight months'' standing following a
quarrel at home and on his 'knees
begged his father's forgiveness.
The elder Diemer's right leg was
crushed below the knee when a Los
Angeles railway street car ran down
a buggy in which he was riding with
his wife. The woman was uninjured,
but fainted from the shock.
The boy saw the accident from ■ a
distance, without the knowledge that
his parents, whom he had not seen
for months, were the victims. Run
ning to the scene he forced his way
through the crowd and recognized his
parents. Ascertaining his mother was
uninjured he knelt at his father's side
and in a voice choked with emotion
pleaded' forgiveness.
•The Injured'man was rushed to the
receiving hospital by his son. The
police surgeons told the youth. his
father's leg, would have to be ampu
tated to save,his life, but the boy re
fused to allow the operation to be
performed, and several hours elapsed
before he was able to get into com
munication with the family physician.
MAX'S CONDITION SERIOUS .
The patient 'was finally removed to
the Pacific hospital and at a late hour
last night was , reported to be in . a
critical condition. The hours of de
lay, the physicians fear, will result in
blood poisoning. The youth and' his
mother are heartbroken over the re
sult of the accident. .
The street car, was in charge of
Motorman C. E. Curry of car No. 296.
He says Dlemer drove into . the path
of the car. Before he could apply
the brakes sufficiently to bring the
car to a stop it had. smashed into
the vehicle, throwing the man. and
woman out, Dlemer falling in such a
position that the car wheels passed
over the lower part of his right leg.
"Father and I had a falling out
eight months ago," said the boy last
night. During that time I have not
seen or spoken to him since. Several
times I was on the verge of returning
home, but my courage failed me. This
afternoon about 3:45 o'clock I was
walking down Twelfth street when I
saw a street car run down a buggy
and two persons rolled in the dust. I
ran to the spot, shoved through the
crowd and saw my father and mother.
This is the turning point. I will stay
i with my father after this."
The elder Dlemer is a baker em
p'oyed at the Franco-American bakery.
He is a - member of the Independent
j Order of Odd Fellows. . .

LOZIER CAR WINS ROAD RACE RECORD
IN CONTEST UNMARRED BY ACCIDENTS
THE Santa Monica road race—the Pacific coast classic of au
tomobile racing—yesterday attained supremacy over every
American road course by breaking all previous records ancl
missing only by a narrow margin the racing record for the world.
Before a crowd of 50,000 people the twenty-six speed mon
sters, in their respective classes, lined up for the start, and after
elimination by accident or otherwise a half dozen of these cars
stand in the limelight of atuomobile racing as the fastest of their
types, and by their mechanical perfection have brought fame and
money to as daring and heady a bunch *of drivers as ever faced a
starter.
• One of the remarkable features of the races was that the
course was so thoroughly guarded and policed that no one was in
jured by any of the fast cars, though the course the entire distance
was lined by tens of thousands of spectators. Nor was there a
serious mishap to any of the competing cars, and not an accident
to any driver or mechanician.
The new American road race champion is the Lozier car,
driven by Teddy Tetzlaff. In two successive races it established
new marks for the distances. For single laps over the eight and
one-half mile course the highest marks were set by the Fiat, driven
by Dearborn. •
It is just twelve days since David Bruce-Brown established
the record of 70.55 miles an hour, with his Benz car at the races
at Savannah. The Lozier's record yesterday at Santa Monica is
73.27 miles an hour, while the world's road race record is 74.3
miles an hour, made by Nazarro in a Fiat in Italy September 9,
1908. .... • . . /
When Hanshue won the big car race last year at Santa Monica
and set the mark of the course at 64.44 miles an hour with the
Apperson, it was not expected that the record could be broken this
season. .
The small Maxwell car also set a new mark for its class, cov
ering the 8.417-mile course in eight minutes in. the ninth lap. The
Duro car,' manufactured in Los Angeles, defeated a good field,
winning the Leon T. Shettler trophy for cars of 231-300 cubic inch
piston displacement. ■ " '. ,•. , ■

NO SERIOUS CRASHES OCCUR
Tetzlaff Wins Auto Trophy and
One Speeder and Mecha
nician Have Close Call
After a "Night of Revelry,"
successfully planned and carried
out by the master of ceremonies,
Dick Ferris, the several divisions
of the great Santa Monica road
races were started early yesterday
and brought to a successful con
clusion before the middle of the
afternoon.
Owing to a dense fog it was not
possible to start the first race at
6 o'clock, as planned, but an hour
later three cars in the first di
vision and eight cars in the second
division lined up before Starter
Fred J. Wagner, and at 7:01 the
Maxwell No. 1, with Fancher
driving, started from the tape, fol
lowed at half-minute intervals by
the Oakland and Stayer-Chicago.
The Stayer stripped its cam shaft
half way round the course on the
first lap and was withdrawn from
the race. The Oakland was
forced to retire in the third lap
because of mechanical trouble.
The Maxwell was a consistent
performer throughout the dis
tance of 101.004 miles, and fin
ished the distance in 1:42:31.
In the second division Maxwell
car No. 2 was first to get away,
folowed by the Mitchell, Mercer,
Buick, Petrel, Duro and Cutting
in the order named. ' The Buick,
driven by Louis Nikrent-, was the
first to complete a lap in this
class, the other entrants coming
up in good order, with the excerp
tion of the Cutting, which, on the
bad Nevada avenue turn, off
the boards and, colliding with a
fire hydrant, • overturned, but
without injury to Driver Clarke
or his mechanician, McNay. The
car was wrecked and later towed
into the city.
In the next lap the Mercer
forged into second place, with the
Buick third and Mitchell fourth.
The Buick dropped to fourth
place in the third lap, and it was
plainly seen that they were in
trouble, and in the fourth lap the
car was retired.
For the next several laps it was
a contest between the Mercer and
Mitchell, both cars setting a fast
pace, which evidently overtaxed
their ability, for the Mercer was
withdrawn in the eighth lap with
valve trouble, and the Mitchell
quit in the ninth lap because of
mechanical • troubles. With the
Maxwell, Petrel and Duro the re
maining contenders, it developed
into a pretty race between these
three, but McKague stolidly
drove the -Duro, clipping a few
seconds off each lap, finishing the
race in good shape, three minutes
ahead of the Maxwell and win
ning the Shettler trophy for its
