Dabcook, general soceretary of the Young Men's Christian association In the city of Mexico, relates In tho Associa tion magazine some Interesting Incidents of the bombardment of the Mexican capl ttal between tho forces of tho tat I'rcol den Madera and tho revolutionists, under General Felix Dlax. Secretary Habcoek writes. In parti The Association building, five stories high, situated near tho cludadcta (the arsenal captured by the Diaz revolution ists), was promptly occupied by the revo lutionary troops before the seven days battle began, equipped with machlno guns on the roof and on nit the floors and bo came n very real fortress. Indeed, tho battle was started by tho "Toung Men's Christian association guns." When tho war was over and tho building was given back to Its peaceful purposes well nigh a wreck, the. total damage reached 50,000. The battle centering around the build ing has given the association greater pres tige, even, than it enjoyed before. Hun dreds of people have called to see tho damago And to tender sympathy, somo of whom we have never known before. Others hava expressed their regret for tho occurrences by making substantial contributions. A well known Mexican physician called In to rco us before the soldiers hod left the building and said that "It was tho 'grandest' Institution In the city and that in this time of crisis he wanted to help, pledging him self to every service nnd leaving a $50 subscription as ho did as pay for tho losses of such an Institution as this!" And we aro at least certain of the well wishes of tho new government A President Mcdcro's government was well represented In the association, three of his cabinet having been members, so Is the new government. General Dlax, the leader of the revolution and the next president of Mexico, has for eight years been a member of tho association nnd for six years was a mcmbor of tho ad visory 'board (his undo, President Por flrlo Dlax, having dedicated the building In the last year of his term). Lie, iRodolfo Reyes, minister of justice, in tho new cabinet, has for years been a mem ber and Is greatly Interested In the work. General Mondragon, the chief revolutionist next to General Diaz, has expressed himself as interested in tho as sociation and has promised his active help. Two of his nephews are members of the association. Not a few of the officers of the army are members of the soldier's uniform Is a common sight at all hours of the day.
