The revolutionists at the bar 1 raks. however, refused to surrender ; and say they will resist until the last man is killed. Diaz and his officers, it is believed, will be shot. The soldiers will not be punished. Instead of a great battle as ex pected, there was but a slight re sistance to the federal advance. Felix Diaz was arrested at police headquarters by Col. Castro and fifty men, when his force of three hundred men refused to fire on the federals. Everything was in a muddle when the federals entered the city. Rebels and federals encountered each other on the street^ without knowing which side the other was affiliated with, as all the uniforms were alike. Less than a hundred were killed or wounded. Medical assistance for the wounded was sent from "he Uni ted States cruiser Des Moines. Colonel Castro was wounded in the leg. Colonel Diaz Ordaza, of the twen ty-first infantry, who was with 'he regiment when it joined the revolu tion, has disappeared. %'o foreigners were hurt.

DIAZ DOWNFALL CAUSES SURPRISE Wa^neton Infer* that Diaz Will be Treated Leniently—Outcome Fav orable to Madero. By Associated Pres . Washington. D. C., Oct. 23.—The news of the recapture of Vera Cruz by the Mexican federal forces and the surrender of Felix Diaz and staff, with practically no show of resistance, was received with aston ishment in official circles today. It Is generally believed that the event marks the complete suppres sion of what was looked upou in the beginning of a general rebellion, in volving entirely new element?. A cablegram from American Con sul Canada confirmed the fact that the city was retaken. The extremely courteous language in which the demand of the surrend er of Vera Cruz was couched was taken to indicate that Diaz and the other officers will be treated with great leniency. The downfall of the Diaz move ment leaves three revolutions in operation in Mexico, headed respec tively by Zapata, Gen. Aguilar and Pagcual Oroaco, jr.. The most ser ious undertaking is believed to be the suppression of the Zapatistas.
