General Bernardo Reyes former
presidential candidate against Ma

leased Sunday by the mutineers
was killed in leading an attack
upon the national palace in which
Pr sident Madero commanded those
place of the troops defending the
of who remained loyal The son
General Reyes committed suicide
following the deatli of his father
Gustavo Madero brother of the
president and most hated man in
Mexico is reported a rebel prisoner
Later in the day it was learned
that Madero nna neither tied nor
resigned as he sent the following
to the Mexican consul at El Paso
Early Sunday morning the gar
rison revolted and General Gregorio
Ruiz with about fifty students from
the School of Military Aspirants
and a equadron of the First regi
ment of artillery sought to liberate
the incarcerated revolutionists and
for a short time they were almost
in possession of the National palace
Generall Villar and General Garcia
Pena compelled a surrender and
they are prisoners Upon learning
the situation the president placed
himself at the head of a thousand
men and took charge of the National
palace amongst the spontaneous ap
plause of the public
Before Madero arrived at the
National palace General Bernardo
Reyes at the head of a force of men
demanded the surrender of the
troops guarding the palace but
their only concession was a volley of
shots which resulted in the death of
General Reyes and the capture of
General Gregorio Ruiz who was im
mediately executed
Felix Diaz is in possesion of the
city with three or four hundred
men but various forces of govern
ment troops are arriving and it is
probable that within 24 hours the
government will retake the suburbs
The dead and Wounded are less
than 200 and the president has the
entire confidence of the people and
of the populace and appears in
public without the least fear of any
untoward act on the part of the
general public
President Madero has turned
over the whole of the command of
the army to General Iluerta who is

For the Jury in Pima County
to See They Were Not
After being out five minutes the
jury in the case oi we indicted
Greenlee supervisors late last Tues
day afternoon returned aerdict of
-not guilty County Attorney Horton
of Greenlee county moved that the
remaining indictment of the same
general nature be dismissed
Many citizens of- Greenlee county
testified late M6nday ftf tefnoon and
Tuesday morning indefense of Geo
Webster J H T Cosper and B F
Billingsley former supervisors of
that county who are oti trial in the
Pima county superior court on a
charge of abstracting a road map
from their office and secreting it
Judge Cooper Monday afternoon
overruled the motion of the defense
to dismiss because of the failure of
the proscution to make a case
J B Holeman the contractor who
built the road and who was in the
hack at the time Webster is said to
have thrown away the map testified
that he did not see- him throw it
away rJiiiingsley and Cosper both
testified that they did not see it
thrown away Cosper was sitting
on the second seat with Webster
Holman and Billingsley wjre in the
front seat S F Await who testi
fied that Webster threw away the
map sat in the rear facing back
wards and dangled his legs it was
asserted This drive was taken1 over
the Duncan Clifton road on January
16 1912 for its inspection
There is no corroborative evidence
that Webster threv away the map
The driver of the hack testified that
he saw Await stoop and pick up
something from the road Await
had said that- he picked up the map
when Webster threw it away
All of the men had been looking
at the map and passing it hack and
Await was recalled to the stand
Tuesday and admitted that he had
no particular love for Webster
No motive for the alleged act has
been shown by the prosecution it is
In his argument L Kearney of
Clifton for the defense declared
that Await was trving to get clear
of the law himself by giving the
paper to the grand jury He ad
mitted carrying it in his pocket from
January 16 until the grand jury met
in May
It was brought out by the defense
that a blue print of the map was on
file in the county surveyors office
and that there never had been any
need for the original until County
Attorney E V Horton inauired for
Charles F Solomon recently elec
ted president of the Arizona National
Bank testified as to the good refu
tation of the defendants
There is no animal so mean as
man said A A Worsley of Tucson
in closing for the defense He de
clared that the people of Greenlee
county were not prosecuting these
men which was taken as a reference
to the alleged fact that the Arizona
Copper company and tKe defendants
are political enemies

How frequently in the course of
conversarion relative to the success
of some person or firm you hear
the comment Gee but they are
lucky Should you care to analyze
i the causes of the person or firm
under discussion you would find the
so called luck totally eliminated by
by such qualities as honest methods
reliability and the desire o live and
let live Take for exampe the
theatrical business wherein the suc
cesses and failures are so pronounced
as to be particularly noticeable
Two men are discussing the wonder
ful success of Gilson Bradfield
One says Gee but they are lucky
And in reply receives the statement
of facts from the other man who
happens to know No not lucky
but wise in that they realize that
the public demand honest merit in
all productions not lucky but
square advertisers who fulfill all
promises and thereby have estab
lished -a reputation for reliability
so that to the people who attend
their productions it is not a gamble
but an absolute certainity that they
will obtain value received in the
evenings entertaiment This has
been the secret of the so called luck
of this firm for the past five years
and it is also assured for the pres
ent season because the same hon
esty in advertising the same high
merit in producing the same desire
to give vaiue received has prevailed
as in the past in the production of
that Great Hoyt Theatre success

Like Phineas Fogg W T
Webb Arrived Day Ahead
of Calendar
When Wilfred T Webb failed to
deliver Arizonas electoral vote at
Washington on time the eastern pa
pers had all kinds of fun with himi
t one failed to describe him as a
Sunburned westerner or some
itning like that And they all fea
tured that breakfast in New York
which was spoiled for Webb by the
neWs that he wjis late
The New York Times of January
29 has tlii following story
Washington January 28 Seated
in front of a bountiful breakfast in
New York this morning exact time
and pace unrevealed was one W
T Webb speciesranchman habitat
Arizona New York had extended
its hospitality theretofore to Mr
Webb and now and then the best
in the house was none too good
Quanity as well as quality figured
in the feast for before the day was
done he had various activities to ac
complish in the metropolis Also
although the sans of Arizona hod
tinted his face almost to a sunset
liue he was a cosmopolite and had
the morning papers served with his
It was this combination how
ever that suddenly look away the
appetite of Mr Webb He was
lifting a forkful of potato to his
mouth and mind you well cooked
potato is a delicacy to an Arizona
ranchman when his eye lighted on
his own name in the paper That
potato never reached deglutition
Mr Webbs mind was suddenly
shifted to this chain of events
When the electors of Arizona
met to cast their votes for the first
time for president and so proudly
added three to the aggregate of
Governor Wilson the electors of the
new state looked around for some
one whowould appreciate the journey
to the national capital Their eyes
fell upon Mr Webb Had he not
worked i nd contributed toward
democratic success He had So
although he did not need the money
involved he was told that he could
be the messenger who would deliver
the states first electoral returns to
Now not being versed in all the
things that go withsuch an errand
Mr Webb went to the highest au
thority in sight the chief justice of
Arizona He received from this
fountain head the information that
it was his duty to be in Washington
by February 1 and deliver his prec
ious papersand not get lost Get
lost Trust Mr Webb for that
He could sleep with one eye open
and his hand was quick with the gun
And starting out two weeks ago
he wandered on a crooked trati lead
ing to Washington and enjoyed him
self at every turn
Coming back to the bountiful
breakfast Mr Webb was thus
confronted in black and white with
the information that he should have
been in Washington last night for
that was the last day for the delivery
of electoral votes His senators had
been raking the west and middle
west with a fine tooth combof tele
grams and had not been able to
find him And because he had been
lost the electoral vote -of Arizona
could not be cast this year at all
Not only that but he was to loose
the 600 odd and was subject to a
fine of 1000 for his tardiness
Suffering snakes or words to
that effect Mr Webb leaped from
the table It was only by splendid
diplomacy that he was recalled to
the little formality of paying his
bill He dashed for the nearest
telegraph office and put a hot mes
sage on the wire telling Senators
Ashurst and Smith thdt he was on
the way On the way he went as
fast as a limited train could carry
At the union station when lie
arrived here his face outrivaled the
best sunset that the Arizona mesa
could afford A large delegation of
newspaper men and a crowd had
gathered to meet him It was the
first time he had been interviewed
in force and he felt worse than an
English nobleman under the same
circumstances However he had
faced hostile guns in his time and
he knew that the best thing to do
was to keep his teeth together and
he did it This gave time for the
Arizona senators to come up and
rescue him and tell him that it was
all right
You see senators are used to
turning back the clock every once
in a while when they want to do
something and this time the clock
had been turned back for Arizona
Officially Mr Webb found that he
had arrived yesterday and the bland
senate functionaries accepted his
precious package and
