felt here that the resignations of Dlaa

an intervention. While it is believed
Madero will be able to restore peace in
northep Mexico, the rebel chiefs will
adknowledge Madejo's authority or
subscribe to his peace terms. In any
event, many .bandit bands, posing as
rebels, will have to fee wiped out. '
The rebels were notified today that
