HOSTILITIES in northern Mex
ico will be renewed at once,
say . rebel agents here. The
informal armistice existing for the
last five days "was broken Tuesday
night and the rebel army is preparing
to take the field..
Messengers were sent from Bl Paso
Tuesday night to Inform Salazar that
peace negotiations were off, and it was
lioldly declared that the third annual
battle of Juarez would be fought with
in the next three to five days. Adher
ents of Salaxar declare that he will
move at once from Guadalupe to Juarez.
It is said the peace negotiations were
broken off because the rebels bad heard
ihat federal troops were being moved
irom Chihuahua northward during the
armistice; also because the federal gov
ernment would not agree to permit the
railroads to remain interrupted during
tlip negotiations and wanted peace ne
gotiations transferred from the border
to interior Mexico.
It Is reported that Gen. Inez Salazar
has gained much in men. ammunition

ieias ooraer, ana mat tne force
under Marcelo Carraveo operating
south of Juares, will be called at once
5nto action to reinforce him. The rebel
i-trength is estimated conservatively at
about 1500 in the immediate vicinity of
the border.
Messenger to Salazar.
After a conference Tuesday with the
local Mexican consul, Francisco Ter
razas, representing Salazar, declared
that the armistice would not be re
newed, and that no peace negotiations
ivuuiu oe neio. tie sam tnat the Mex
ican government had refused to agree
to an armistice prohibiting the repair
ing of the railway lines below Juarez.
.Neither could the rebels and federals
agree on a place of conference. Also,
the rebels allege a violation of the pre
liminary armistice in the movement of
federal troops in the zone.
Emulating the United States army, a
motorcycle messenger was -dispatched
late Tuesday with the government's
answer to Salazar. From Guadalupe
the rider was to make a tour of the dis
trict below Juarez, announcing to the
various rebel groups that the armis-
Tice nas ended, and giving Salazar's
orders for action.
Fuente "With Snlniar.
David de la Fuente, Orozco's former
artillery chief who recently jumped
bond at San Antonio, Texas, arrived
Tuesday at Guadalupe. He had entered
Mexico at Columbus, N. at, but with
200 men had skirted Juarez to the
south and arrived on the Texas bor
der. Gen. Salazar and CoL e la Fu
ent will uuuduel U14WillD3eKmpaIgn,
Orozco's location remaining idmittedly
in doubt.
Gen. Antonio Rojas is also with Sala
sar and It is said that Gen. Emllio
Carapa has also rejoined Salazar.
Opposed to Peace.
Dissension is said to have arisen
among the rebel leaders within their
own ranks. Reports from Guadalupe
say that David de la Fuente, who is
now with Salazar at Guadalupe, and
Afarcello Caraveo are opposed to any
peace conferences and are said to have
warned Salazar and Rojas that they
would not accept any terms arrived at
by the two rebel leaders and the gov
rnment Caraveo and de la Fuente
laim tbat Pascual Orozco is the only
real leader of the revolution and without
his consent there can be no peace
agreement. Should any further effort
be made to negotiate for peace by Sal
azar and Rojas, it is said that they
haTe been warned that they will be
considered as traitors to the cause and
will be opposed by the remainder of
the revolutionary army.

"We were on our way to my ranch, 70
miles northwest of Casas Grandes.
when Maj. Beatancourt and a bunch of
rebels took us in custody at Malpais,
between El Paso and the New Mexico
line. They thought we were federal
spies, but when we convinced them that
we were not, they released us, after
having held us two days.
"We then continued on our "way to
ward my ranch, when we met a bunch
of 300 rebels commanded by CoL Castro.
David de la Fuente and CoL Jose Ma

Rebels All Around Juarez.
"Then they marched us around a cir
cle of 300 miles, distributing their men
at various places, and finally took us
into Guadalupe, where we arrived in
tharge of 10 officers Sunday night.
"The reason for their going to Pa
lomas was that they had heard Pancho
Villa was to cross there with 100 men
disguised as laborers, but we did not
tee them.
"On our way to Guadalupe we passed
se-v era! places where they had arms and
saddles cached. In -one place we saw a

a number of Mausers.
"They claim tor have 1000 men at
Guadalupe and it looks as ft they had.
They have bands scattered all around

Urge Comfort for Veterans.
"The comfort and happiness of our
former soldiers should not be sacrificed
and their years shortened In order that
a few dollars may be saved to the
nation's treasury- While economy is
commendable, it should not be obtained
at such a sacrifice."
This declaration was contained In a
report made to the senate by the spe
cial committee which Investigated con
ditions at the Pacific branch of the
national home for volunteer soldiers
at Santa Monica, Calif. The report
says the soldiers were poorly fed and
housing conditions, could b tn-ontiv
Senator Jones presented with the re
port a bill to transfer control of the
home to the war department. The In
vestigating committee found no evi
dences of graft or misappropriation of
funds. It found that the soldiers were
being fed, however, for 16 to 20 cents
a day while in the national home at
Washington the average Is 35 cents a
day. The Pacific coast home has be
come so popular with old soldiers seek
ing a mlia climate that the committee
recommended a law allowing admission
to the home of soldiers drawing pen
sions ui ju a montn.
Closed Season For Seals.
In a'report on fur seal conditions at
the Pribiloff Islands the house com
mittee which conducted a wide investi
gation endorsed a closed season of five
years. President Taft recently asked
to have a law to that effect repealed.

seals and yearlings and recommended
that the attorney general proceed
against the company.

In the house when American adminis
tration in the islands was made the
subject of a severe attack by repre
sentative W. A. ,Jones, of Virginia,
chairman of the house committee on
insular affairs. .
Representative Jones's suggestions
for Philippine independence which have
been considered favorably by president
elect Wilson, were opposed by repre
sentative Sherley, Democrat, of Ken
tucky, while criticisms of president
Taft and governor-general Cameron
Forbes brought a sharp reply from
representative Murray, Democrat, fnm
The speech of Mr. Jones was both a
demand for independence and a severe
arraienment nf Amwtran nr!YYiiTiistr?i-
j tion in the Islands.
Representative Murray charged him
with having "slandered Cameron For
bes," and "defamed president Taft."
Mr. Jones denied these charges but
insisted the administration of the Is
lands. had violated at least the spirit
of the laws governing the Philippines.
Mann Defends Canal BUI.
Representative Mann, the minority
leader, defended the Panama tolls bill,
declaring that practically all opposition
to the policy of the United States re
garding tolls "originated with the
trans-continental railways, whose rates
are likely to be affected by the reduc
tion of the cost of carriage by water."
Representative Pujo, chairman of the)
house "money trust" committee, an-,
nounced that he and Samuel Unter
myer, counsel for the committee, will
probably go to Jekyl Island about Feb

Some action is also expected during

the resolution introduced by senator
McGregor providing for injecting woman-suffrage
into the constitution. Some
of the senators declare they will vote
for the resolution that it may be sub- I

from fraternity men. This bill promises
to be one of the most interesting that
will be considered during the session.
The fraternity men will oppose its
passage, but as the ' majority of the
lawmakers are not members of these
Greek letter societies, the passage of
the bill Is not unlikely. One of the sen
ators, who is also opposed to frater
nities at the university, is said to be
preparing a bill on the subject which,
he will introduce within a short time.

not been disclosed and probably will
not be unless some of the faculty is
called to appear before the committee
to consider the measure. Mr. Harris
Introduced his measure yesterday.
Reciprocal Insurance.
Advocates of inter or reciprocal in
surance in the state are highly jubilant
over the result of the action of the
senate and house committee in report
ing favorably on the Murray bill and
against the Watson measure. The
Murray bill is to their liking in that
it merely places these mutual or
reciprocal concerns under the juris
diction of the commissioner of insur
ance and banking. On the other hand
the Watson bill placed so many re
strictions and requirements on these
reciprocals that it is maintained, it
would result in driving all but one or
two out of business. An effort may
be made during the present week to
pass this bill.
Senate Rejects Adams.
The senate rejected the claims of
J. T. Adams for the seat of V. A Col

asked for mandamus in the supreme
court against the lieutenant governor,
