CONFIDENCE CIBMIG STBONGE
El Paso's Representatives In the Texas Legislature There is THE iEBTI MEXICO ADM1NI5TBATJQN Mexico City, Mex, Feb. 27. Confi dence in .the Huerta administration ap pears to wax stronger dally. Plots and eonnsplracies against the provivslonal president are still talked of In whis pers, but there is at least an outward appearance of harmony between the If aders of the new regime. Hnerta and Diaz seem to be working together to bring about general peace, which both express themselves as ardently desir ing The collapse of the revolutionary movements, both north and south! ap pears to be imminent. Emilianio Za pata remains obdurate, although many of his chief supporters bare come into l.nc with the new order of things. "V enustiano Carransa, former governor "1 the state of Coahuila. according to aspatches received, has not succeeded an obtaining general support for bis at titude against Huerta. -V committee from Mexico City has arrived In Monterey and will go by spe cial train to a point half "way between Laredo and Monterey to confer with a committee named by the rebel authori ties at present in charge of Nuevo La redo. The port of Nuevo Laredo re mains closed to customs traffic. To Offer Amnesty. Provisional president Huerta today drafted a bill granting amnesty to all political offenders "who shall present themselves to the authorities within IS days." The measure was hurriud to the chamber of deputies, which Is in extra ordinary session, for quick action. The emissaries of Emilio Zapata, who were said to be hiding in the state ef Morelos. are here to confer with. Huerta. They are said to bear instructions from their leader to arrange terms f surrender. Seventeen Zapatis.as who advanced to the edge of the federal district, eight miles from tnranital were mntarod miles from the capital, were captured today and executed. Juan Vargas, com mander of the ru rales, sent this mes sage to president Huerta: I have the honor to report the execu tion of 17 bandits taken in. OHtls.wry and rebellion." Huerta replied, highly cofiaaendiag the official. To Rebury Reyes. The body of Gen. Bernardo Raves, the first victim of the Diax revolution, will be brought from an outlying cemetery , regime a bill for a bond issue of 109, and will be given reburial with military 000.90 pesos for the same purpose was honors. If the chamber of deputies accepts the recommendation of its finance com mittee, an immediate "peace appropri ation considerably in excess of the 100.- u.uuu pesos asKea ior by Madera, will be authorised by a bond issue. It was sa.d today that the committee would recommend any sum that the finance minister deemed necessary for the needs of the government. Huerta Is Pleased. Keen satisfaction is displayed at the palace over the late reports which indi ca the disappearance of the revolu tionary activities in much of the north and portions of the south. It is not expected that the Zapatista problem will be solved immediately, but several minor chiefs have announced their willingness to serve the new gov ernment. Government officials realized the probability of a difficult campaign in the south, but president Huerta; who commanded the federals in the cam paign which most nearly resulted in the ending of the Zapatista trouble And was checked only by Madero's benevo lent interference, thinks be knows the situation sufficiently well to end the trouble. PuxsalBg the Zapatistas. The Zapatista i have added to the list ef towns thev alraadv occtraied Ama meca. on the Inter-Oceanic railroad, and I ixiree ULQen uj. juiour iniwriAouc jyuo- ing continues with the usual atrocities, but troops are in pursuit of the murder ous bands, for whom little rest is prom ised. a revolution in the st&.e of Guerrero appears likely of early settlement, since Jesus H. Salgado, the oldest and most persistent rebel leader under Andrew Almazan and Julio Radilla, promises al legianee. Hidalgo In Question. The state of Hidalgo is in an unset tled condition. The governor has dis solved the legislature and will hold a referendum election to decide whether be shall recognise the new administra tion in Mexico. Provisional president Huerta has sent s detachment of troops there. Gen. Pascual Orozco, Jr., has sent a tlegram to Gen. Felix Diaz protesting his allegiance to the new government. He places all his men-at the disposal of Gen. Diaz, either to muster out of to incorporate into the general forces of the government. Carransa Makes Little Headway. According to government advices, Venustiano Carransa. former governor of Coahuila, is making little headway In the new revolution inaugurated by turn, with Saltillo as a base. To the report that Emilio Madero was lulled is added a rumor that Ms broth er. RaouL has met the same fate at Ton-eon. Both were actively allied with Carransa and. if true, their taking off doubtless will have a deterrent ef lect on rebel activity in that district FREE TO ASTHMA SUFFERERS A. nr Berne Oare That Anyone Can TJae tncbeut Discomfort er Loss We have a New Method that cures Asthma, and we want you to try it at our expense.

Carranxa still holds the region about Monterey, but Gen. Trewlno, the fed eral commander, who is at Monterey, has dispatched troops in the direction cf Saltillo. The government believes there will be little difficulty 1h regaining the reb el territory. Laredo Region Safe. That region to the north of Monte rey, including Laredo, now held by the rebels, the government asserts will soon be added to the loyal districts, and Francisco de la Barra, minister of foreign relations, is authority for the statement that Geronimo Vlllareal, an influential partisan of the new move ment, has already indicated a desire to cooperate with the new administration. CoL Pascual Orozco. sr., who was al lied with that movement, is known to have been for a long time under the domination of Pascual Orozco, jr.. and the telegram sent by the latter to Gen. Felix Diaz, promising absolute alle giance to the government, la regarded as indicative of his father's attitude. If all the leaders of Orozco's army follow the example of their leader, it is practically certain that the Carranza movement will dwindle away, leaving the government only the Zanatlsta and Sonora problem to deal with. Suezta Has Grip on Affair. In the capital rumors of plot and counter plots continue, but nresldent Huerta, appears to have an excellent grip on affairs and to be working in complete barmonv with Gen. Felix Diaz. who desires the reestablishmeat of pecce, as much or more than anyone, J ,," L.n., - -camlS,sn ?or tbe presidency in the general elec- tions. Friends of Diaz met vesterlav afternoon and formally launched bis candidacy. Big Bond bsue Proposed. Two hundred million pesos is the amount the minister of finance proba bly will ask congress to authorize the government to raise by means of bonds for the pacification and the rehabilita tion of Mexico. At the time of the fall of the Madro under discussion in congress. a err Ambassador to U. S. Emilio Rabasa a member of the sen ate, and regarded perhaps as the great est authority in Mexico on International law, has been appointed ambassador to ' the United States. Senor Rabasa was governor a few years ago of the state of Chiapas, but j his greatest claim to distinction is his work as an attorney and as the retire' tentative of the government at inter national scientific congresses. He 'was not allied with the Madero administra tion, but was well known among the men of the Porfirio Diaz regime. He is 56 years old and speaks English flu ently. The government looks confidently to the future. It was announced officially that the rebel difficulties at Laredo and Matamoras had been satisfactorily arranged and troops had been sent to Aguacalientes to instal Gen. Carlos Garcia Hidalgo as military governor. Want to Surrender. Rafael Tapia and exgovernor Hidalgo, of the state of Tlaxcala, who are in rebellion, have conferred with presi dent Huerta, offering to surrender upon condition that the government give recognition to their officers' ranks. President Huerta has refused io com ply with these conditions. Regarding emphasis that the the payment or money, ne aeciarea witn ne government was through with buying loyalty, and instead would send soldiers. It is be lieved that Tapia and Hidalgo will not accept the challenge. Argumedo Surrenders. Argamedo. one of Orozco's generals, has notified the government that he will place his men in camp at Soledad. in the state of San Luis PotsI, or any other place indicated, preceding a con ference to arrange details for muster ing out or enlisting the men In the reg ular army. Tabasco Congratulates Huerta. A telegram of congratulation 'reached president Huerta from the governor of Tabasco yesterday. Zapatistas now occupy several towns in the state of Morelos. The most important of these is Yautepec. south east of the federal capital. Many depredations have been committed and a division of troops were dispatched against them Bufemio, a brother of Bmilio Zapata, has proclaimed himself governor of Morelos. The state of Aguas Calientes Is ad mittedly in revolt, the rebels being led by the governor, Alberto Fnentes X. SONORA GOVERNOR QUITS THE STATE (Continued from page L) I have been recompensed by Madero to the extent or hb.boo pesos ior alleged damn nee suffered during the revolution. An unofficial investigation is being made of charges that Maytorena and J ira uTDigctruiiaw, viciu uu, ul me joxai military zone, nave been beneficiaries through padded military payrolls amounting to many thousands of pesos a month. No official action can be taken just yet, for the state congress is 'dis organized. Maderista advocates, suddenly panic stricken, have fled to various places seeking safety. PANCHO 'vTLLAIN FIELD AS REBEL Pancho Villa, whom the late presi dent Madero reformed from banditry and made into a general insurrecto, is reported to have entered the field in Sonora seeking vengeance for the death of hie former chief. He disappeared yesterday from El Paso, where he has been sojourning since his escape from Villa had bean jailed by order of Gen.

Buenos Ayres, Argentina, Feb. 27. Bl Diaro, commenting on reports that there had been an exchange of tele grams between the chancellors at Buenos Ayres, Santiago, Chile, and Rio de Janero, Brazil, and the government at Washington respecting common ac tion in Mexico, strongly opposes Inter vention on internal questions in any South American country. It declared that Argentine always has defended the autonomy of, independent coun tries. The paper adds, that if "South Amer ican countries embark on such an ad venture as would open the door to ul terior expansion by foregln nations, it would constitute a danger to the sta bility of South America." :Lses' e Dry Gleaning Perspiration Removed From Gloves.

BurgM SQUARELY UP TO tie inny states Recognition of Huerta Must Be Granted or De nied Shortly. "Wasington. D. C Feb. 27. The ap pointment by president Huerta of a new ambassador to the United States, in th person of Emilio Rabaso, Is ex pected to have the effect of bringing to a speedy issue the question of recog nition by the United States of the pro visional government of Mexico. Up to the present time, the relations between the two governments have been on a de facto basis. Now that the threatened revolt of governor Carranza, of Coahuila, actu ally has taken form, the military au thorities here have concluded that it Is yet too early to carry out their plans for any considerable reduction of the American military force on the Mexican border. Secretary SUmson has assured the senate committee on foreign affairs that every precaution has been taken to prevent the entry into Texas of raiding parties of Mexicans. Political Recognition Deferred. Political recognition of the provis ional president of Mexico is not a mat ter requiring the immediate action of the secretary of state and this matter will be left to the next administration. State department officials maintain that no interest of the United States will suffer by wltholding full recog nition and that all necessary busi rcss can be transacted under the pres ent working arrangement established by ambassador Wilson. If president Huerta Is able to con duct his government In regular con stitutional form, retain undisputed pos session of the capital and extend full protection to foreign life and property in Mexico, formal recognition can then be granted by president Wilson. The United States government will be Influenced strongly by the extent to which the Huerta. regime provides for a full and fair election of perma nent constitutional officers. More Troops For Border. At a meeting of the senate committee or. fore's 1 it Ions at which senators Culberson .1 Shepperd, of Texas, were pre,.it, secretary of war SUm son and Maj. Gen. Wood gave as surance that such a disposition rf troops would be made along the Texts bonltr as woild Insure protection of that section against Invasion by maudlin raiders from Mexico. They said several regiments would be placed along the Texas border. They explained that the removal of detachments from El Paso had been made necessary by the crisis in the City of Mexico because of which it became necesary to collect as large a force as possible at the nearest point of embarkation at the earliest possible movement in view of the fact that in tervention might be necessary. For this reason, the nearest garrisons were ail rushed to Galveston. With this critical time passed, they raid, troops from points further off could be brought to the border anc that there scon would be no cause for complaint along the Texas border. C. P. DIAZ INDIFFERENT AS TO WHO HOLDS TOWN. Ragles Pass, Tex., Feb. 97. C. P. Diaz apparently is indifferent whether the federals retatce the town from Col Jesus Carranza, brother or governor Carranza, of Coahuila, who has launched a revolution against the Hu erta government. All federal officers have crossed the border to Eagle Pass, Texas. Governor Carranza, of the state of Coahuila, today sent a messenger to the Associated Press at Eagle Pass with this statement: "I wish emphatically to deny all re ports to the effect that I am dealing with the socalled Huerta government, nd to state further that I have no in tention of ever considering any sort of a compromise." Governor Carranza said that Gen. Huerta could give him no -satisfactory explanation by what right he claimed the presidency of Mexico, and that he Carranza) would stand out for the constitutional government against all -dds. There had been no fighting at C p. DJaz and ,tnere seemea no Immediate prospect of any. Railroad bridges at Sauseda and An helo, between Monterey and Monclova, have been burned. Gen.
