HUERTA IS DICTATOR IN MEXICO
United States Rushes. Troops to Galveston
RULE OF SWORD
SUBDUES PEOPLE
Horror of Assassins and Fear for Life Makes
All Classes Bow to Will of New Regime,
Which Is Ma&er of Situation
construct sequentially the grim scenes j
of the sanguinary drama that was j
played so swiftly and remorselessly to j
Its end well inside half of the clock's
round.
The only element lacking was the
positive knowledge of persons at
whose Instigation the deaths were
plotted, who initiated the crime, who
carried it out.
That may come to the surface later,
but it is doubtful.
The fact that the United States prac
tically declared that the Huerta gov- |
eminent would not be officially recog
nized until it had shown clearly that
It was not responsible for the death j
of the deposed president and vice presi
dent has caused unrest.
The activity of the Washington gov
ernment in mobilizing more troops, also
creates anxiety.
It is feared that if the government
ll not recognized by Washington, free
access to the United States will be
given rebels for arms and supplies,
and while news from the outside as
given out by the government indi
cates that Huerta is being recognized
generally and the rebels are laying
down their arms and swearing allegi
ance, private news does not bear out
these reports. „
It is known that in the north, where
ttoe Madero influence is powerful and
Dfas is hated, the new government is
likely to have all sorts of trouble, and
here is where its neutrality is most
needed.
The arrest of Governor Gonzales of
Chihuahua and his possible execution
or "accidental" death is not likely to
quiet things in the north.
The report of the prospective return
of Porflrio Diaz also is a source of
weakness to the government, coupled
as it is with the return to the old
Diaz methods and threats of the "iron
hand" issued by Huerta and Felix
Diaz.
The great mass of the Mexican peo
ple do not want to return to the old
methods.
In this city quiet reigns today. Ma- j
derlstas of any prominence are quietly!
leaving as rapidly as possible. They do j
not care to risk arrest and possible ;
death.
A revulsion of sentiment has been !
caused by the death of Francisco Ma- j
elero and Suarez, but the great majority i
of the Mexican people merely shrug
their shoulders. The bodies have been
removed from the penitentiary pending I
the transference of Madero's to the fam- j
Hy home In San Pedro de los Pinoe, in
the state of Coahuila, and that of Sua
rez to Yucatan, permission already hav
ing been granted.
BODIES LIE 11V CEMETERIES
The body of Madero was deposited in
<he mausoleum of the French cemetery J
shortly before noon. None of the mem
bers of his family was present.
A small crowd which gathered out
side the penitentiary when the body
was removed shouted "Viva Madero"
and was dispersed by federal soldiers.
The family of the dead former presi
dent will ask the right to name an at
torney to represent them at the official
investigation into his death.
The body of former Vice President
Jose Pino Juarez was ordered removed
during.the afternoon to the Spanish
cemetery.
Boris Merow. a naturalized Ameri
can, was killed in an attack made by a
force of rebels on a mine in the Ixtlan
district of the territory of Tepic, Feb
ruary 20.
Ramon Gorzueta, a Spaniard, also
was killed.
Two American employes and one
British workman are missing. They
are Alfred Bromley, a British engineer,
and David Sanda and Charles Budti. The
houses and mills of the mining com- •
pany were sacked.
FELIX DIAZ A CANDIDATE
Already the political world is turning
to the elections. It is said that General
Felix Diaz will have as his opponents
!n his candidacy for the presidency
Francisco de la Barra, the present min
ister of foreign relations; Rodolfo
Reyes, son of General Bernardo Reyes,
who was killed in the first attack on
the palace, and Dr. Francisco Vasquez
Gomez,
Friends have begun a campaign in
behalf of these various candidates.
The holding of the elections will de
pend upon the state of the country, but
President Huerta insists upon a free
rholce of the people when peace is re
stored.
Reports are not altogether reassuring
from the states of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon
End San Luis Potosi, where rebels are
committing depredations.
The Zapatistas in the south also are
giving trouble, and it is reported that
one town in the state of Puebla lias
been sacked.
This, however. Is characterized by
the government as the work of a small
and insignificant portion of the rebel
army in the south and is due, perhaps,
to ignorance of developments in the
capital.
It is said that the new revolution
attempted by Emilio and Raoul Madero,
brothers of the late president, is
making little headway.
BAIT OFFERED TO ZAPATA
Answering the offer made by Gen
eral Emiliano Zapata, the southern
rebel leader, that ha would recognize
the new government if its program
was along promised progressive lines,
General Huerta sent envoys today
with such asurances to the insurgent
rhiefe in the states of Mexico, Guer
rero and Morelos.
Through his secretary. General Hu
erta said the government would adopt
such principles of the San Luis Po
toei plan, as revieed in Tacubaya, as
■were compatible.
General Aurelio Blanquet, military
commander of the federal district,
probably will be appointed governor
of the state of Mexico.
General Joaquin Maas, it is under
stood, ie elated for the governorship
of the state of Vera Cruz.
Huerta'* government, undoubtedly,
for the present at least, has the upper
hand in the country.
Reports from the state of Oaxaca
Indicate that the disaffected Indiana
there have been placated.
Juan Sanchez Acona, the private
secretary of Francisco Madero, has
been released from prison.
TJUERTA OWES ALL
11 TO MAN BETRAYED
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
MHXICO CITY, Feb. 24. — General
Vietoriano Huerta, provisional presi
dent of Mexico, is a veteran of all the
Mexican revolutions since Juarez drove
J Maximilian, ttte ambitions brother of
the emperor of Austria, from the im
perial throne, which he had occupied
in Mexico City with the aid of Na
poleon 111 and the French soldiers
under Marshal Bazainc. He saw Maxi
milian ehot. He "is in his sixty-fifth
year. All his life from boyhood has
been spent in the army. He was a
private in the ranks of the army got
together by Porflrio Diaz to oust
Juarez. Under Diaz he rose to be rank
ing general and commander In chief.
He fought hard for Diaz against
Madero and Orozco and was captured
in the decisive fight at Porras.
The fierce anti-Diaz leaders were
for executing him out of hand when
Madero saved his life and smuggled
Him across the border. Later, Madero
restored him to his place as a general
in the army and gave him the chance
of redeeming his popularity by select
ing him to take the field against
Orozco and those who had joined the
latter in the northern rebellion.
HUERTA WHIPS OROZCO
Huerta whipped Orozco decisively in
the battle at Bachimba. For this serv
ice Madero, always anxious to placate
former opponents, further restored
Huerta to power by making him com
mander in chief of the army with a
comparatively free hand. Wise men in
the councils of Mexico shook their
head at this step and even before the
affair of Vera Cruz proofs of Huerta's
lack of loyalty were laid before Presi
dent Madero. When, October 3, Bel
tran's forces surprised young Diaz and
captured him, with all his men, it was
alleged that Huerta was on the point
of siding with the nephew of his old
leader.
After the release from prison of Diaz
and Reyes much of the disaffection of
the army was attributed to Huerta's
"silent treatment." In defiance of the
wishes of members of his family and
others who suspected Huerta, Madero
placed the entire military measures
against the rebels in Culdadela under
the direction of Huerta. Ernesto
Madero submitted evidence that
Huerta was dickering with Diaz and
purposely prolonging the siege of the
arsenal for his own ambitious pur
poses. Influential Maderistas urged the
president to permit the "silencing" of
Huerta.
TREACHERY REPAYS GENEROSITY
The humane president warned
Huerta to guard himself against the
hand of the assassin. Huerta next day,
with the aid of General Bianrquet and
the approval of Diaz, seized and im
prisoned Madero and Pino Suarez, and
only the stern warning of the United
States government saved Madero from
being at once put to death. That
j Huerta would slay Madero through the
j aid of willing tools, living up to hie
i role of the Richard of Gloucester of
modern Mexico, was foreseen for two
days even to the very manner of the
i tragedy.
A MBASSADOR WILSON
r\ EXONORATES 'BOSS ,
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 24.—The Amer
ican ambassador, Henry Lane Wilson,'
made the following statem-nt tonight
regarding the death of Madero and
Suarez:
"In the absence of other reliable in
formation. I am disposed to accept the
government's version of the manner in
which the former president and former
vice president loet their lives. Cor
tainly the violent deaths of these per
sons were without government ap
proval, and if the deaths were the re
sult of a plot, it was of restricted
character and unknown to the higher
officers of the government.
"Mexican public opinion has accepted
this view of the affair and it is not at
all excited. The present government
appears to be revealing marked evi
dence of activity, firmness and pru
dence and adhesions to it, as far as I
have been able to ascertain, is, general
throughout the republic, indicating the
early re-establishment of peace.
"The government, as constituted, is
very friendly to the United States and
la desirous of affording effective pro
tection to all foreigners.
which are being furntehed by some
few correspondents. The great major-
ity of the correspondents here are en
deavorlns to deal fairly with the situa
tion."
DR. GOMEZ REGRETS
DEATH OF MADERO
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Feb. 24.—Emilio
Vasquez Gomez wired today from Pa
lomas. Mex.. to friends in this city,
expressing his sorrow over the killing
of Madero, and condemning such an act
as being outside the pale of enlightened
government. Senor Gomez has been
represented as accepting the Huerta
regime, but the tenor of his telegram
raises doubts as to that.
The telegram is addressed to Mgl
ohor Camacho, who was one of Gomez'
closest advisers in San Antonio, and Is
as follows:
"Kindly express to the press my
deepest regret for the death of Senor
Francisco I. Madero and the terrible
manner in which he met his death.
"I most deeply deplore the situation
for my country, my countrymen a.nd
myself, occasioned by this seeming un
just tragedy.
"While opposed politically to the late
president, earnestly believing he was
not the person to preside over my
country's destinies for prosperity and
complete union, yet I bitterly would
oppose death in any event aa a pun
ishment for political offenses.
"I believe sincerely in the law of
civil government and the proper ad
ministration thereof and I can not,
nor do I believe my countrymen ever
can look with favor upon military
government which seemingly has no
respect for human life nor guarantees,
and does not safeguard the nation or
give its people the protection enjoyed
under civil government which 13 true
democracy. *
"I will suspend entirely further
acknowledgement in the matter until
I receive entire particulars of this
most unfortunate affair."

STRONG FORCES
ARE MOBILIZING
Major General William H. Carter Is Placed in
Supreme Command of Army Now Concen
trating in Texas to Keep Mexico Quiet
the Madero government, President Taft
had begun to throw safeguards about
the Latin-American countries, the
sending of the five warships February
7 being the flret act.
At that time there were well founded
reports that a general revolution was
developing and that San Salvador. Hon
duras and Guatemala were seething
with the revolutionary spirit, the as- ■
sassinatlon of President Arajuo of Sal
vador being only an Incident.
Department of state officials have not
permitted the serious developments in
Mexico to befog the danger Impending
In the Latin-American countries and
their agents have kept in close touch
with the so called professional revolu
tionists and their activities.
Aβ official eald today that the names
of twelve disturbers who were plotting
In thi* country for the overthrow of
San Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and
Nicaragua had been furnished the de
partment and that there had been other
reports of filibustering expeditions and
conspiracies against the Latin-Ameri
can countries.
CASTRO AND ZELAYA SUSPECTED
Ciprlano Castro, the exiled dictator of
Venezuela, and Jesus Santos Zelaya, the
deposed president of Nicaragua, It Is
admitted, are suspected of being behind
certain plots, one to overthrow Hon
duras, Guatemala and Nicaragua and
combine these countries Into a Central
American federation.
Juan Leets. a notorious Russian, well
known to the state department because
of his questionable activities in Latin-
American matters, is regarded as the
active leader of this plot.
State department officials do not pre
tend to know the details of the con
spiracy, but they are Informed that all
the discredited agitators and former
revolutionists in Central America are
banded together.
Some time ago the state department
was advised of the activities of a group
Don't Work, Don't Enroll, Don't
Worry; Just Play for That $8,750
Don a Smile Today and Start to Gurgle Your
Way to First Prize!
Right here and now the Booklovcrs' Contest Editor is going to tell
you what you must do, what you do not have to do, and what you should
not do in playing the $8,750 game The San Francisco Call began conducting
for the pleasure and profit of its readers three days ago.
1. Do not send in your name to be enrolled in this contest. There is
no enrolling in it.
2. Just clip out the pictures as they appear day after day. There will
be 77 pictures in all. After all uj them have been printed you may send
them all in together, with your answers to each picture, and your name
and address written neatly in the required spaces.
3. Do not think that there is any work about the contest. Some con
testants have written in to ask: "What sort of canvassing or soliciting do we
have to do. So far, you have said nothing about that, and we want to start
work."
No, nothing has been said of that, and nothing will be said, for there
is no WORK of any kind about this game. Contestants should understand
that it is simply and purely a GAME TO PLAY, not a soliciting sort of a
"contest," where everybody turns out and rustles for subscriptions". Just
save and solve the pictures, and send them all in together after the seventy
seventh picture has appeared. Those coming closest to naming the 77- coi-
Tect book titles that the 77 pictures represent will redeive the awards. And.,
that's ALL THERE IS TO THIS CONTEST!
4. Contestants do not even have to be subscribers to this paper in order
to compete and win a prize. We believe, however, that it is far better for
contestants if they do subscribe to the paper. Then, for one thing, they get
it regularly. Each day the paper and the contest picture contained in it
come to the door. Also, there are many valuable hints contained in these
stories, and in the announcements also appear facts that sometimes point
the way to success. And, finally, The Call costs just HALF as much, if
you subscribe, as its price if you buy it day by day on the street. Did you
ever figure that out?
5. Fill in your coupons in any way you choose. You may write down
your answers, and your name and address, in pencil, ink, or on the type
writer. One contestant writes that he is a printer, and wants to print his
answers. That is allowed. It does not matter in the least how you write ,
down your answers —the vital thing is to get them CORRECT!
6. A contest catalog of 5,0000 book titles, arranged in alphabetical order,
will be issued to contestants in two days. Seventy-seven of these titles are
GUARANTEED to be the 77 correct titles represented by the 77 pictures.
Thus all you have to do is to fit the 77 pictures to the 77 correct titles in
the catalog. No book knowledge is necessary at all. The pictures represent
i the titles of books, and nothing more. The title to picture No. 1 is "Jack,
the Giant Killer." That is told you so that you can start right. Now solve
the other 76 pictures yourself!
Do you want the first two pictures? ' Get them at The Call office, or by
mail. Each picture is sold at the regular price of the paper per cop}'. In
close 2 cents additional for postage. «
And start TODAY. Do not wait until the pictures have begun to
pile up! i
Continued From Page 1
of revolutionists In New Orleans, and
it was declared today that nothing had
developed to "explode" the Idea that
they were plotting trouble.
Included in the group are Manuel
Ugarte, a Honduras exile; Daniel Mena, I
son of General Mena, leader of the
N'icaraguan revolution last summer,
and a number of other individuals of
the same caliber.
CLBA ALSO IN FERMENT
Trouble also is brewing in Cuba. A
strong anti-American feeling exists
in certain quarters, and it would not
surprise the Etate department to see an
outbreak there before the inauguration
of President elect Mario Menocal. 4
There Is also a feeling that Castro's
Influence in Havana will operate to no
good purpose.
Whether President elect "Wilson will
abandon tie Taft policy of protecting!
American interests in Latin-American J
countries by means of armed invasion,
if necessary, is open to conjecture; but
it is known that the record and attitude
of Senator Bacon of Georgia, who is
elated as chairman of the senate for
eign affairs committee, have furnished
joy to the professional revolutionists.
It is largely in the hope that the new
administration will repudiate the Taft
policy that the agitators and conspira
tors are so active now.
President Taft feels that he will have
done his utmost toward the preserva
tion of peace and prosperity In Central
America by the concentration of naval
and military forces within easy access
of the danger points, and it Iβ in this
belief that lie has taken the precau
tions.
WAR DEPARTMENT ACTIVE
Military orders flew thick and fast
today in redemption of President Taft's
promise to have an army of 10,000 men
assembled at Galveston, all equipped for
foreign service and ready to execute
any order that his succ«seor might
choose to issue upon the basis of the
conditions that will exist after March 4.
These orders on the whole were sup-
SUPPLEMENTARY ORDERS
FLYING THICK AND FAST
Instructions Calculated to
Insure Assemblage of Sco
ond Division of Army
plementary to those vrhlch began to
flow from the war departmunt last
week and were calculated to insure the
assemblage of the second division of
the reorganized army at or in the
neighborhood of Galveston.
The completion of the orders to move
the entire second division Is Intended
as further warning to 'Mexico that
there tvill be no departure from the
established policy of preparedness in
the remaining week of President Taft's
administration.
All plans for the possible sending of
troops into the republic to the south
will continue to be carried out.
This course is justified on the ground
that any cessation In the closing days
or even hours of the Taft administra
tion might be seized hold of by Mexican
malcontents as an opportunity for a
strike at Americans, which could not
be adequately overcome should officiate
relax their vigilance.
Major General AVilliam H. Carter,
who commands the second division,
was ordered today from Chicago to
Galveston.
This will be the second time that
this officer has had the honor of com
manding a complete division of troops
within the limits of the state of Texas,
the first being in the mobilization of
iiti.
Th> Fifth brigade of this division al
ready is moving under previous orders
to Galveston, as is the Fourth field
artillery, composed of mountain bat
teries.
The order issued today will set in
motion the Fourth brigade, the Sixth
brigade and the Sixth cavalry.
Brigadier General Frederick A.
' Smith, commands the Fifth brigade,
previously ordered to concentrate; Col
! onel Edwin F. Glenn of the Twenty
third Infantry, will command the
Fourth brigade, in the Illness of Brig
adier General Ramsey D. Potts, and
Colonel Arthur D. Williams of the
Eleventh infantry will command the
Sixth brigade, in place of Brigadier
General Clarence Edwards, who Is
under orders for Philippine service.
In the maneuvers of 1911 it required
two weeks' time to get some of the
soldiers to Texas, but it Is believed that
this period can be cut in half at pres
ent.
Even then the whole second division
almost certainly will be at Galveson
or vicinity some time before the neces
sary water transportation can be pro
vided.
TRANSPORTS ARE INADEQUATE
The four army transports, all the
government owns in eastern waters,
only can carry a brigade at most, and
there are three brigades . In this di
vision.
It will be necessary to charter from
10 to 15 merchant steamers of large
size to accommodate the remaining two
brigades.
The quartermaster's department has
a long list of available ships, but aa it
would cost on an average of $700 a
clay for each ship to keep them ready
for service, the war department has
avoided incurring any such large lia
bility.
So, in all probability, it will remain
for the next administration to author
ize this expensive outfit.
The transports Sumner, McClellan
and Kilpatrick'are due at Galveston
tonight or tomorrow, and they will be
Joined within a day or two by the
Meade, which was given to the navy
department to carry a detachment of
marines to Guantanamo, Cuba.
With that mission performed, the
Meade will join the other transports
at Galveston.
POLICE CORPORAL NOT
GUILTY OF OFFENSES
Police Commission Exoner
ates Head of China
town Detail
Corporal Charles Goff, In chargo of
the Chinatown squad, was cleared last
night of two charges of unofficerlike
conduct In connection with -raids he
made upon the Sing "Wo Jan & Co.,
and a building among whose occupants
was Wong Quong.
The police commission heard the two
allegations and was unanimous in find
ing him not guilty. The Officer was rep
resented by J. G. Lawlor, while Attor
neys 11. I. Stafford and William Hoff
Cook prosecuted the cases. Officer J.
Roblc was charged jointly with GolT
in tho Wong case and was acquitted.
In the complaint of Wong, Goff
proved that he never entered the apart
ment of that Chinese nor did he use
abusive language. In the case of Sing
Wo Jan & Co., he showed that the night
of February 7, when he was accused of
willfully and unlawfully entering the
premises, taking from it articles not
receipted for, arresting four Chinese
and turning them over to the immi
gration officials and with breaking in
doors to effect an entrance, he was
simply performing his duty and acting
within the law.
An interested spectator to the pro
ceedings was Mayor James Rolph. The
mayor seemed pleased with the out
come of the cases, and stated after the
session of the commission that he in
tended to attend more of the meetings
that he might be better acquainted with
the conduct of the department.
Mayor Rolph stated that he had been
holding back the appointment of a
commissioner to succeed .fames Woods
until the latter, who resigned recently,
returned from Portland. Woode re
turned last night and Mayor Rolph
announced that he would use every
endeavor today to get him to accept
again the office he had vacated.
During the session last night Pres
ident Roche gave out a statement that
the police would strictly enforce the
city ordinance prohibiting the selling
of Intoxicants to any woman under
21 years of age, or of allowing eny
such person In a place where liquors
were sold.
The North Beach Musicians' union
sent a protest signed by a number of
its members against any further re
stricting of the Barbary coast. They
argued that clamping the lid any
tighter would throw a large number of
the musicians out of employment.

WHITE SLAVE STATUTE IS
UPHELD IN HIGH COURT
Supreme Justices Decide the
in Women May
Be Regulated
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—0n the
theory that traffic In women in inter
state commerce may be regulated by
legislation as well as the traffic In
drugs, foods or cattle, the supreme court
of the United States upheld today the
validity of the federal white slave traf
fic act of 1910.
It had been contended this question
of morality was reserved for action by
the states.
Justice McKenna delivered the court's
opinion.
"Our dual form of government has its
perplexities," he said, "state and nation
having different spheres of Jurisdiction,
but it must be kept in mind that we
are one people and that the powers re
served to the states and those conferred
in the nation are adopted to be exer
cised, whether Independently or con
currently, to promote the general wel
fare, material and moral.
"This is the effect of the decisions anc
surely, if the facility of interstate
transportation can be taken away fron
the demoralization of lotteries the de
basement of obscene literature, the con
tagion of diseased cattle or persons, the
impurity of food and drugs, the like
facility can be taken away from the i
systematic debauchery of women and
more insistently of girls."
THREE MILLIONS IN GEMS
HIDDEN FROM ASSESSORS

\/ and Other Ornament* at
Social Functions
OAKLAND. Feb. 24.—Where women
hide $3,000,000 worth of diamonds,
jewels, automobiles, fine furniture and
works of <*rt from taxation may be in
vestigated by special deputies in the
office of Assessor C. F. Homer.
A recommendation to that end was
made by Robert O. Lloyd in a letter to
the supervisors today. Newspaper ac
counts of the display of' the Articles
enumerated at special functions will
serve the special deputies as a basis
for their work. They may even check
up the stones with which women are
credited at functions with the personal
property tax roll. A society leader
deoorated with a rope of pearls or a
dazzling tiara of costly gems at a
cotillon will be called on by the in-
vestigators if Lloyd's plan works out.
Lloyd was anxious to have the county
make a start at once, in view of the
fact that assessments are made on the
first Monday in March. At that they
might be badly handicapped by the
Lenten season.
