Madero Gives Emphatic Interview,
Navarro Preparing to Re
sist Attack.
EL PASO. Texas. April 20.—Unless
the Federal* make an attack on the
rebel army that has threatened to its
sault Juarez. Francisco I. Ma lero. Jr .
says there will be no assault on Je
rez until after 3 o'clock Fndav aft"
noon. If by that time he has not r
celved assurances from Porflrlo D
that he will retire from the presiden
cy of Mexico. Madero declares that
the attack on Juarez will take place
at once.
"AH that the Federate want la time
to bring up reinforcements." he *ald
to-day, when asked If he would con
sider an armistice. "I will give Diaz
24 hour* to resign," he said to a dele
gation of El Pasoans and Mexican cit
izens that called on him In his camp
In the hills near Juarez and asked him
to consider peace terms.
This assertion was also a reply to
Gonzales Garza, secretary general of
the revolutionary junta, who carried
a message from Dr. Gomez, In Wash
ington, asking for a delay In the at
tack.
Diaz Must Resign.
"Diaz must surrender the presiden
cy." This he said was his final reply
to all attempts to bring about peace
or a truce of arms.
The volunteer peace commissioners
who visited the provisional president
and lnsurrecto commander went un
der permission of the Federal*, and
made the trip in two automobiles
with white flags.
An Associated Press correspondent
was In the camp when .Madero met
them. After the conference Madero
dictated the following:
“The peace commission came unof
ficially and asked under what terms
I would make peace.
"X said I would agree. In the Inter
est of peace, to resign as provisional
president of Mexico, but only If i con
sider that the will of the people has
been satisfied, otherwise the revolu
tion will continue, notwithstanding
any peace negotiations.

Bljrned.
•'I will wail until to-morrow evening
to hear the result of the peace nego
tiation* which are being directed by
Dr. Vazquez (Jomrz. If to-morrow
night no answer comes. I will com
• mence hostilities."
Madero Not Candidate.
After the volunteer peace commis
sioners had returned to El Faso,
Felix Martinez gave out the follow
ing statement of their trip:
"I do not want the presidency." Ma
dero said frequently during the con
ference "if j am willing to sacrifice
everything wealth, position family
name and even my life for the cause
of Mexico. Diaz ought not to hesitate
to sacrifice the position that he has
. held for thirty years for the cause
of hi* country.”
While the peace conference was in
progress, American* crowded along
the river northwest of El Paso and
Insurrectos, espet

Although General Juan J Navarro,

much ceremony to-day. friends of
State Treasurer D. J. Creamer, of St.
Clairsville, launched a boom for him
for the Democratic nomination for
governor next year. The Republicans
about the state iouse smiled at the
Idea because of the fact that Creamer
ran ninety thousand behind the head
of the Democratic state ticket last
fall. Creamer was the only Democrat
elected with Governor Hartnon. when
the latter was first elected. Then,
however, he ran against a weak Re

Hon. X R Scott arrived In the dtyl
yesterday morning from Washington.
Mr. Scott was kept busy a conaldH
erable part of the day meeting old'
friends who welcomed him and con
gratulated him upon his improved
personal appearance. Mr. Scott
looked to be In the very best of
health, and stated that he had not
felt better for years. While Mr.
Scott's term as United States sen
ator expired on March 4th, he haa
remained In Washington several
weeks winding up his personal inter
ests and consulting with President}
Taft as to a number of West Virginia'
matters. Being the senior Republican*
member of congress In West Vlr*
glnla. and a member of the national!
Republican committee from the state.,
Mr. Scott has been naturally con-'
Rulted as to West Virginia appoint-^
ments, quite as much since he ceased*
to be senator as he wss before. A‘
reporter of the Intelligencer met Mr.j
Scott while he was on his way to
the Central glass house, which Insti
tution he always visits among th*
first after he arrives In Wheellng-i
Speaking of public matters he said:*
Reciprocity Will Pats.
"I do not think there Is any doubt)
about the passage of the Canadian
reciprocity treaty. The bill will be
promptly passed by the house of rep-t
renentatlves, and while there will be1
some opposition to It In the senate,
there will not be sufficient to defeat)
it A great many Republicans will'
support It. some Democrats will op-*
pose It. but there is a distinct major-I
ity in favor of It In both bouse*. Be-,
yond passing the reciprocity treaty
I do not think that this session of
congress would accomplish anything
In the way of legislation. The Demo
crats In the house of representatives
have already outlined a free trade
program which would undoubtedly
cause a great deal of alarm If there
was the slightest prospect that It
would be enacted Into law. The so
called free list framed by them Is
simply a bid for farmer votes. It
large number of agricultural lmple- '
ments and supplies used by farmers
In harvesting their crops, as well as
shoes, woolen goods and other
articles of that kind. The peculiar
feature about this free list program
is that It Is made up entirely for the
purpose of pleasing a certain class
of people, without any regard what
ever to the conditions of manufacture
or the cost of same. For instance,
certain kinds of Iron and steel pro
ducts are to be put on the free list,
because they are used by farmers,
but that does not carry with It any
reduction of duties on other Unas of
Iron and steel products, or upon raw
materials that go Into their mant»>
