Torflrlo Plr.z sailed fror.i this port to-night on tho teamer Yplr.tngi for Havre. France. Ills ultimate destination is Spain. His dhlp was only a little way out when the searchlight of the forties? guarding the port wns turned on It. With glasses In hand, among a small party In the stern, 1'laz was standing, soinnwhatnp.irt, taking Ills farewell look nt his native land. Tho last v,-nrd of the e-presldent to those ho hnd left on shore were: "I shall die In Mexico." It wns five ii'i In-k when General Diaz and his paity went aboard the Yplranga Contrary to pupular expectation the journey from the house where he hnd been quartered to the pier was In car ringPH. At the Lend of the plor wns moored the Germm steamer aflutter with lings. Along both sides nf the pier soldiers were drawn up nt present iirms and two military bands stood In ranks lowds of working class people and tho mnt prominent of the city's society jammed the way. General Diaz received an ovation on the walk to tho ship rarely accorded to any one In Vera Cruz and never beforo to him. A dozen prrtty young women threw the befl.iggeu warrior great bunches of flowers. ARMS F1LLK11 WITH FLOWKRS. With his arms filled with blossoms nnd boning right and left the former presl lent started up the companionway. On board the ship's baud began the Mexi can national anthem, l'verv hat wns off nnd Llnz halted at the head of the companion way. Tho guns of Fort San tiago began for tho last time to flro a pri'ldeiith'l salule In honor of Diaz, Tho crowd was cheering Itself hoarse, but never a cry for Mnrtcro. And this wns Vera Cruz, which never before had aught but hisses for Diaz. lnz lifted his hand, signalling for silence. "Citizens of Vera Cruz." he said, "I will never forget this reception. It is the more notable for having been given at a t'me when all the country Is against me. 1 am accorded a greater reception than a mere citizen Is entitled to. Not even a president can be the recipient of a grenter ovation than this." On hoard the vessel were scores of friends nnd passengers and visitors min gled In something like a general reception The captain of Yplrnngn finally rescued the old lighter, taking him to the bridge where with three of four friends he gazed out across the harbor towards the walls of tho last Mexican city he was to see for many months nt least. FARKWKLL TO THU ARMY. Vera Cruz, May 31. President Diaz said his fnrewll to Mexico tn-dnv. with his wife and other members of the Diaz family he bonrded the steamer Yplranga bound for Spain. To his country General Diaz delivered a warning. Speaking to the little group of soldiers who hnd gunrded him on his trip from tho capltol to the port, the old man who has govern ed Mexico for more than 30 years by military strength, declare! that the present government must yet re-sort to his methods If peace is to be re-established. General Dlcz learned this mornlni; that his men wished to say goodbye. The men stood facing tho veranda of tho burn-like wooden houso down In the terminal yards, where the former Presi dent wns staying. When he stepped for waid on tho veranda thero was a buaz of interest, but no applause. FJven the little group of peons massed behind the soldiers repressed their ffellnns until tll0 spi-echmakliig and einbracings were con cluded. Kvcn then their upplauso was brief. General Diaz, his face showing almost no sign of the recent Illness, wns dres-M-d In nn ordinary black milt. Ho carried In his band a panama hat. The only touch of color about his attlro was a lavender necktie. ARMY IS ALWAYS LOYAL. In tho name of the army, General Huerta addressed 111 in. Standing In front of his old chief, the soldiers told him that he could uhvnys count on them "nut with standing what everyone- sail ' General Huertn's voice broke as hu add ed: "It Is the only portion of the (ountry that did not go ngalnsi von" ne clnred that he and his m n and the army In general were surrv ti hp General Dial leave Mexico, but that there was nlso rea son for gratification inasmuch as foreign ers would be glv. n an opportunity to know the man who hud madu his country famous. Through all nf General Htiert.Vs talk, Diaz stood like a soldier on parade, with eyes front and never a twitch of the nu e'es. Brnveiy he begun his reply but be fore many minutes he was having great iMfilieulty In mastering his emotion, "1 am grateful to the, army," fild th ex-president, "that I could count on It to the lust minute of lenvlng Mexican terri tory It Is the nly real defence the riuintrv has hnd to ro-establlsh peace. In this republic, Its serviced will havo to bo called upon In this crisis." TIC A RH ROLL DOWN HIS FACK. By now tho tears wero rolling down tho old man's fare, nnd his voice wiia broken. Hut Ilka a father talking to his children he continued, assuring them that ho l-.vo his word of honor that should his country at any Hm" hecomo Involved In trouhlo hn would be willing to return Pointing to the colors of Mexico, he add-ed; New York, Mny II. -Detectives delving Into New York's latest sensational murder faced a deepening mystery to-night with the reading of letters In tb0 rooms of the woman whoao decomposed body was found, llme-enten In a bath tub early yesterday. Thero were two sets of these letters, one apparently from tho fnther nnd the other from the mother of the lctlm, eath writer addressing tho missives to a different person nt different addresses. Si hleb wns questioned by detectives for three hours this nfternoon. They ray he admitted that he himself wroto a letter addressed to himself an 1 signed Anna which the police took from Ills pocket when he wns nrrested. "I was going to rhow thnt letter to my wlfo when she came bach," hp s quoted as lnvlng told his Inquisitors, "to prove that other women liked nie. Ills handwriting tallies closely with that of thi' person who penned the missive. The prisoner' lawyer obtained to-iWy a will of habeis corp'.s directing the warden of Tombs prison to produce Schleb In court to-mnirow afternoon ns the llmo for holding thr Inquest Into tho cause of the victim's death. 'I would then plice luysel at the head ef the country's lojal forces nnd, under the shadow of that Hag, I would know how to conquer ns In times past." General Huerta, himself almo.st as old n the deposed president, grasped his hand, nnd then the two old lighters em braced. One bv one tho minor officer.! moved forward from the ranks, Faeh was embraced by Geiier.il ,Dlaz and told good bye. It wns owr. The toop.s had stood tit attention for an hour In the brollln heat, but non. appeared weary. Ge.nernl Dlnz turned torn-' r t! bouse and the olll (irs gave the rnmmiril to march. For an hour following :h.- farewell to his troops, General Diaz pos d for photographers. Then he received informally Gen. Joaquin Beltrnm, prlmlpnl of the Chapultcpec Military school, who had brought with him a manifesto of the cadets, In which tiiey hnd protested their lojalty. Those who went aboard the stenmer with tlie ex-president Included his wlfo. h r widowed sister and the latter's son, Col. Porflrio Diaz, Jr., his wlfo nnd their five children and Lieut. Lorenzo Klizagu, a brother-in-law of General Diaz. BOATMAN WHO SAVED HIS LIFE In the licet of boats on tho harbor there was ono manned by nn old Mexican. He wns not one of those who went to the house In the r.rminal yards to see the aged soldier, bit had he done Si) there 13 little doubt of tho reception he would havo ha1 feir hhls old boat man Is tlie man who saved the life of Diaz in the same harbor a generation ago. Diaz was attempting to re-enter his country as a fugitive. Ho had been In New Orleans, fomt ntlng a revolution. Hunted by tlie soldiers of Mexiio he found it necessary to guard his move ments. So when the boat entered tho harbor of Vern Cruz he slipped over the side and nttempted to iwlm ashore. Tost-cd by the swell he lost his bearings and was swimming out to sea when dis covered by a man In a rowboat. He was pulled In and rowed ashore. If his res cuer knew the identity of his passenger nt thnt tlmo he kept It secret, and Diaz re-entered his country, fought and won. Later the president culled the Imat man to the capital and gave him a bet tor position. He showed a most kindly disposition toward his rescuer, but the bofitmnn longed for the harbor and re turned. BOY KILLED FOR MONEY. New York, Mny 31. The body of an 11-Mar-old boy who was murdered yester day afternoon, his playmates say, by a companion of 13 j ears, was found to night with a bullet hole In the breast In the coal bin of a Cherry street teiiemen where It had lain for 2 hours. A rough I urlap bag shrouded the llttlo beidy. The dead boy was identified as John Mnlle, who Ihed across the street from the tenement. Youngsters in the neighborhood told detectlvos that the bid was slain by a companion who took from him $1"' and bought n suit of clothes. Carmlno Plomblno, a bov who said ho saw tho shooting, led tho dead boy's mother to the eonl bin. "Ho shot John In my home when mother was away,'' sobbed Carmine, naming Andrew Leona as the slayer. "He wanted John's money." At midnight detectives found Leone and lodged him In J.ill, charged with tin eiime. He declared that Piomblno had done the shooting. Three other boys weie held later as witnesses ef tho shooting The boys told the police a story which has not been equalled they say since the days of Jesse I'omeroy, the boy murderer of Massachusetts. They told of dashing water on tho fac rf the dead lad to revive him. When ho lay epilte still they snid. they knelt down ind prayed beilde the body. After persistent questioning by the po lice, Plomblno admitted, they say, that he himself killed the Mallo boy. Ho claimed that the shooting was accidental, RECORD PRICK FOR J HUSKY Bl'LL.
