ENTIRE MEXICAN CABINET HANDS IN ITS RESIGNATION President Diaz Fails to Win Popularity By the Recent Destruction of His Of ficial Family. MEXICO CITT, March 27. Of ficial notice has been issued that the entire cabinet had resigned. This action was undoubtedly taken at the request of President Diaz. He will now be free to organize a more popular and more progessive cabinet. This, it is believed, will end the present unrest in short order. Criticisms of the outgoing cab inet are varied. Jose Yves Limantour, secretary of finance, while an able man, has always been regarded as a foreign er, a Frenchman and the French have not been popular in . Mexico since the time of Maxmllllan. Ramon Corral, secretary of the interior, who is believed to have been selected by President Diaz as his successor, is extremely unpop ular throughout the republic. Enrique Creel, secretary of for eign affairs, is disliked and distrust ed by nearly every one. In fact, the cabinet as a whole has never been popular, and its resignation will do much to restore the popularity of President Diaz. It is rumored that General Ber nardo Reyes, who was . sent to France some time ago, will be re called. He has always been the hero of the army and the idol of the public generally. His reinstate ment will meet with general ap proval. ' But even if General Reyes should not be recalled, the selection of any popular and progressive cabinet will be considered a concession to public opinion and will do much to allay the unrest which brought about the insurrection. The rest of the cabinet that re signed is as follows: Justivo Fernandez, secretary of justice. Olegario Molina, secretary of ag riculture and public works. Justo Sierra, secretary of public induction. Leandro Fernandez, secretary of communications. General M. Gonzales-Coslo, sec retary of war and marine. E.A.

By his jovial, tender personality, he wins the hearts of his audience handling his dramatic and comedy scenes with equal ease and ability.
