Madero, the am bassador reports, will be given a fair trial, and possibly the worst fat will be exile. Secreatry Knox, with the approval of President Taft. had instructed Am bassador Wilson to convey to Huerta in diplomatic terms an intimation that the I'nlted States would seriously ob ject to summary execution or sen tence of Madero. CRIMES POLITICAL. It is now felt that the former presi dent frhould be slaughtered for crimes which seemed purely political, with out a fair open trial. This view was made plain to Huerta and the fact concealed that the United States look ed with disfavor upon the shooting of Gustavo Madero, the president's brother. The administration' atti tude toward the provisional govern ment of Mexico was discussed at a cabinet meeting. Taft and Knox never believed. It is said, that Madero was a strong president for a republic kowii with revolution. They have be lieved, however, he has displayed many humane traits and is entitled to FACES MCHDEUl CHASOB. Mexico City, Feb. 21. That Madero will get out of Mexico without hav ing to face official Investigations on one chaJrge or another Is now Im probable.

No word of agreement hus com from General Geneve DeLaozo pata. and disquieting reports that the governors of four states, Aguas Cal lentes. Nevlo Leon, Coahula and Son era have openly refused allegiance has made the situation more complex. HI EH TA ASM RES EOHA.
