Gustavo Madero, brother of the deposed president, was removed from the penitentiary at 0 o'clock this morning and executed. It Is presumed that this was done by order of Felix Diaz under the notorious "fugitive Jaw." The ex-presldent and his brother Gus tavo were sent this morning as prisoners to the arsenal, from which Felix Diaz had bombarded the city for tep days. Soon after their arrival there Gustavo Madero was subjected to the notorious "fugitive law," by which he waa freo to run under the liflo fire of his guards. He fell dead under their bullets. Francisco Madero, tlio deposed presi dent, whs later taken under a heavy guard from the national palace and lodged In the arsenal. There he was a prisoner of General Diaz In the very place which for over a week he had caused to be battered with cannon in his efforts to subjugate the rebel army. Had Francisco Madero succeeded In defeating Diaz there seems little doubt that bloody reprisals would have been made. "Those who should die," Is the caption on an official Maderist document found last night. The list Included Francisco De La Barra, Jesus Fl'ores Magon, Manuel Calero, Alberto Garcia Granados and Dr. Vasquez Gomez. For some days De La Barra believed he was In danger of assassination and hid In the British legation. Congress uSpporta Huerta. General Huerta probably will become provisional president of Mexico as a result of the olnt session of the deputies and senators. The action to bo taken appears to be a mere formality, u a majority' has 'already algtied &' proiutie to support an agreement made betwrcli Huerta .and Diaz. Thousands came out today, ostensibly to. work, but really to go elghtseelng about the city. The shutters came down from business bulldlngB which had not been. opened for ten days and shopkeep ers made every effort to resume their activity. The list of wounded Americans wn augmented In tho lost moments of 'the fighting yesterday, when Miss -Bertna ftoberts was severely hurt by a fragment of a shell and her father? Frederick Hi l erts, suffered a scalp wound from the same shot. The family has lived hers for years, coming originally from Mai- c. Thomas Lason, whose mother lives In San Antonio, was slightly wounded. Hundreds of Americans and other for eigners returned today from the Unlt.d States embassy- to their homes in vutk-rs parts of the city. Many found their resi dences wrecked by shells or looted by mobs or soldiers. Fnll f Mudero. The fall of the Madero administration brought about by the well-arranged plot of the federal military leaders, has, boon received In the capltol with general ac clamations. It Is not known, however, how the rest of the country will receive the change. The part played by the United Mates embassy In the settlement of the ten days' battle gained for the American fla such a tribute as never before was wit nessed in Mexico. After the minister from the UnltM States embassy, Harry Berllnger, had gone through tho fire of the rebel llnus to the .arsenal conveying the message of peace sent by Ambassador Henry June Wilson, he drove to the national palaio in an automobile bearing a white flag ..n ope side and the Stars and Stripes on the other. By the time he emerged from the na tional palace after delivering the note to General Huerta the crowd outsldo had learned the Import of his visit. The re appearance of his machine was the signal for a tremendous ovation. Through an immense mass of human ity gathered in the Zocola and along San franrlirn itraet tho blsr automobile picked Its way slowly amid deafening applause with the Stars and Stripes fly ing in the wind. Group after group of the people on tno etreets caught up tho cry "Viva .'oj Americanos" until the entire city rever berated with the cheering. For days the entire population of Mex. lco City had regarded Intervention by the United States as practically inevita ble. Mexicans of the noncombatant class suffered divided emotions of hope and fear. Thousands, although deploring intervention by any power, had come to (Continued on Page Two..) The Weather For Omaha.

LINCOLN. Feb. 19.-(Speclu Telegram.) When the university removal proposi tion first came up a month ngo, enemies of the removal plan laid great stress on the argument that III students were unanimously against removal.
