Anxiety in Washington Over Con dition Across Boundary lane in Mexico. WASHINGTON, D. C„ April 16.— Anxiety over developments In Mexico endangering the lives and property of Americana near the boundary line « was plainly evident In official circles here to-night. President Taft, until neprly midnight to-night received bul letins at the White House from the War Department regarding the ad vance of the Federate upon the in surgent forces at Agua Prleta. but re tired confident that an attack would not be made before to-morrow. Dr. Vasques Gomez wns In constant communication with the Insurgent Junta at El Paso. Texas, who trans mitted to him messages from the In surgent army advancing on Juarez. Mindful of the Incidents of last week around Agua Prleta. Dr. Gomez tele graphed a message of warning to his constituents to avoid Injury to Amer ican lives or property. He was ad vised that the lnsurrectos had mobll practically their entire army in Chihuahua, under Francisco I. Mnde ro. Jr., to within striking distance of Juaret. The messages that Dr. Gomez sent to the insurgent forces. In a manner unexplained here, prevented the at tack to-night on Juarez. He attached much Importance to the pause of the Insurgents, and other Mexicans drew much hope from the occurrence. Dr. , Gomez, however, was unable to say whether It was caused by his long message of last Tuesday, addressed to Francisco I. Madero. Jr., and explain ing conditions under which peace could be arranged, or his message of last night advising the in Rtirrnrtn forces to defer their attack pending the receipt of certain messages from Mexico. Dr. Gomez was said to be arranging for an armistice, to take effect Imme diately, by which peace negotiations ..might be instituted near Juarez. U. S. Message for Federals. AGUA PRIETA.

TARIFF REVISION IS ILLADVISED NOW Republicans Contend Tariff Board Was Not Consulted on Pro posed Change. WASHINGTON, April 16.—So far In the extraordinary session of con gress It has been plain sailing for the well organized Democratic majority in the house of representatives, but in view of a strong and healthy minority there are breakers ahead. Democratic leaders refer with pride to the achievement of passing the bill for the popular election of United States Senators and the campaign publicity hill In two legislative days and to bringing before the houso the Canadian reciprocity agreement with assurances of its ratification by an overwhelming majority by the middle of this week. To all these feature's of the legislative program, however, there has been little opposition. The wonder of It to the experienced ob server was the demonstration of the smoothly running Democratic ma chine. The rapid pace of legislative progress, however. Is expected to re ceive a sudden check—by what is to follow—the free list bill approved by the- ItemocraUc caucus and favorably reported by the new committee on ways and means. Flash Danger Signal. Reciprocity discussion begun Satur day. furnished on opportunity for the minority leaders to flash a signal of their intentions and to make it clear that the bill placing on the free list manufactured articles in demand by the farmers of the country will he fought as stubbornly as any proposed Democratic tariff measures ever ttc|' opposed in the halls of congress. The majority leaders realize that the hill cannot be rushed through and they aro preparing to meet the vigor ous assault upon It In prolonged de bate. The minority members of the ways nnd means commlitee In considering the proposed free list voted solidly against It. maintaining that it was a hastily framed measure. Iliad vised nnd not sufficiently backed up with information relating to the revenue's concerned. Furthermore. it was pointed oul that the tariff hoard had not been consulted. That Mr. Mann, the nilnorltv leader will conduct a stlrr'ng fusl’ailg sf argument .igtlmd ♦ he MU la beyond all question and Mr. Payne, who was chairman of the old ways and means committee, will he nllied with him in directing the attack.

One of the sen ate leaders, when asked how soon the committees would he ready re plied : "Well, we are on the defensive In' regard to the tariff and I rueea we are ! In no hurry to appoint committees. The sennte will take Its time." The prospects however, are good ( for the passage by the senate of the popular election and campaign public ity hills.

Precautions Suggested. I*r.' Holmes urged the use of only those explosives least likely to ignite after gas or dust and the general adoption of a system of electric firing "to ho used at a time when all of the miners are out of the mine." Other measures suggested are that only small quantities of any explosive tjerf' ed for m during a single da- should be in the mine at one Mme and under no conditions should the powder and the detonators or raps he carried Into the mine together, nor should the powder or detoraiors lie kept In any mine over night, as dampness may change their quality.
