The revolution In the State of Guer

promises of allegiance.
ItAOl'L MADF.ltO KILLLD PF.P.HAPS.
To the report that i;mlllo Madeio was
killed Is iililed a rumor that his brother,
liaoul, lias mi t the tame fate at Torreon.
Both these young men were actively al
lied with Curranzu, and, II true, their
taking olf will doubtless havo u deterrent
elTect on rebel activity in that district.
Cirranza is Mill in possession of tho
rigin about M inti.rey, Init the head-
fpiartci-H of General Tivvlno, the federal
commander, are at Monterey, and iio-
vlno is said to have despatched troops
In tho direction of Saltlllo. Colonel Pas-
fiml Greuco. Sr.. who was allied with
tho rebel movement north of Monterey,
I h known to have been for a long tlinu
under tho domination of Pascual Orozco,
Jr , and a telegram sent by the latter to
day to Gen. Felix Diaz, promising ab
Kolutc allegiance to the government, is
regarded as Indicative of his father's "at
titude. It Is hoped that tho rebel gen-
iral will bo able to convince Ills father
and associates of thi advisability ot co.
If this Ik done, anil all tho leaders
of Orozco's army follow the example
of their leader, it Is practically cor
tain that the Carranza movement will
dwindle away, leavlntf tho government
only tho Zapatista problem to
in the lanital rumors of plots and
rounter plots continue, but President
Munrtn iionears to havo an excellent

minnleto harmony with Gen. Kellx
Diaz, who desires tho re-establish
mimt of neace. as much as or moi
than anyone ns he Is preparing
lils rumpalgn for tho
tho H' t'al ' lections.
Diaz held a meeting
and formallv launched
edgenient of the legality of tho lluerta,
Kovernmnt and that ipiesllon must be
eletcrmlned hereafteh entliely upon tho
basis ot performance.
If President llucrut is nblo to conduct
Ills government In regular constitutional
form, to maintain undisputed possession
of his capital and to extend full and
ninplc protection to foreign life and prop
erty in Mexico, foimai recognition will
not be withheld.
Tn the course of a conference with the
members of the S'eriatc committee on for
eign relations to-day at which Senators
Culberson and Sheppard eif Texas were
present, Secretary nt War Stlmson and
MaJ.-Gen. Leonard Wood gave assurance
of such a disposition of troops along tho
IVxns frontier as will Insure protection
of that section against Invasions by
marauders from Mexico.
DID LOOK LIKK 1NTEIIVKNTIOX.
iney explained that the removal to
Galveston of the detachments from HI
iso and other Hlo Grande points had
been rendered necessary by the crisis In
the city ot Mexico. With the accession
of General lluerta tlioy said It had look

might he necessary and It was desirable
to get as large a force as possible to tho
nearest point of embarkation nt tho
earliest possible moment. On this account
the nearby garrisons were rushed to that
place. Now that the critical timo had
passed, they expected that lime could bo
taken to bring troops from a greater
distance to Galveston This would bo
done, and the two otllclals expressed
confidence that there soon would bo no
reason for complaint.
Consular and other reports to the state
and war departments to-day indicated
the existence of small disturbances in

Washington, Feb. 25 Chief Interest in
the cabinet situation In Washington to
night centered about the attorney-generalship
and a report that Jumes C. Mclley
nolds of New York Is foremost among
those under consideration for tho place
by President-elect Wilson. Coupled with
Mr. Iteynolds's name as n probability for
this portfolio was that of Kdgnr H. Far
riir of New Orletins, former president of
the American Par association.
Men high in democratic councils de
clared that MeUe-ynolds and Karrar had
been under consideration for some time,
but that Inte development seeme-d to
point to the selection of th. former, who
was nsslst int attorney-general In 100:;-Vjo7
and has Ions? be-en specially retained by
the United Slates In trust prose-cutlons.
Though a democrat Mr. McHoynoldd
was engaged to piosecute the govern
ment's Milt against the tobacco trust,
and had direct charge ot that caso from
the beginning until the dissolution of the
American Tobacco company. He also had
chiii-co of the prosecution of the govern
ment's suit against the hard coal trust,
and carried the case through tho Supreme
Court, which unnulle-el the so-clled K." per

Dorr diove up and down tho Lynn boulo
vard with the body propped up beside hiu
In the single seat of Wb rucabout. Other
ELtitorriobilldts passod him. but, though il
was light, h'- attracted no attention.
This is a part of tho remarkable storj
that Dorr told to-day to a Jury befora
whom ho l being tried for murdor.
Tho Slate alleges that Marsh was mur
dereel in order that tho defendant might
profit indirectly through a trust fund
which he thought would go to his aunt.
Miss Orpuha JIarsh, with whom he lived
In Stockton, Cal., upon tho death of
Marsh. Counsel for thi defendant sot u
self-defense and Dorr was put on th'
stand to toll his story
For four and a half hour- Dorr wa
under examination or ctus-s-eximlnatlon
He told in detail of his llfo In Stockton,
where ho said he was a member of
church choir. His aunt's propert w.n
Involved, he, said, Jind ho belleve-d th.lt H
was being mismanaged. He could get n'
satisfaction from George 12. Crane, who
looked after the estate, and he decided
to come Kast and see prvitely George K
Marsh, hl.s aunt's uncle
Arriving in Lynn, ho obtained lodgings
near Marsh's home, and made the ac
quaintance of the old man. Ono day ho
took Mursh out for a drive In his auto
mobile. Marsh made an insinuating re
mark about Miss Marsh, asking Dorr it
ho was really the woman's nephew. They
qnarrcie-il nnd tho defcnelant starteel to
leave tho oar. Mr. Marsh tried to stop
htm and was shot In tho scuffle tha'
followed. On cross-examination Dorr told
the story practically as ho had llrst re
lated It. Iteplylng to questions of Pls
trict Attorney Atwell, Dorr said:
" fter the shooting I wrapped the iod
ot Marsh In a blanket, put his hat c i
his head and started toward Lynn. I drovi
the machine up and down the boulevar.i
several times undecidedly what to eh-,
Once- 1 drove nearly up to the Mare 1
house and then my courage failed and 1
returned to the boulevard Several times
I had to stop tho machine to prop up
tlie body, which had toppled over."
"What prompted you to keep riding
iround with the body In the machine."
the district attorney asked
"Fear." said Dorr.
The witness thought that Marsh dled
about 5:30 o'clock on tho afternoon of
April 11, 1P12. About six o'clock ho drove,
his car near the marshes and put tho
body on the ground, Then he half carrlexl
and half dragg el It from the roadway
arid pushed it through a fence. It rolled
down an embankment, where It was
found the next day.
The defense rested without having in
troduced any testimony other than that
to establish self-defense. The State 'wi'l
