Mexican Officials Murdered
and Terror Reigns in
Tropical Province.
Mayas Start General. Insurrection,
Attack Towns, Tear Vp Railroad,
Cut Wires Government Sends
Troops and Warships.
VERA CRUZ, Mexico, June '. The
most serious uprising? with whom the
Mexican government has had to deal
in a long: time has occurred in the State
of Yucatan, and troops are being rushed
to the disturbed area.
In the meantime, reports 'indicate
that there has been much bloodshed
and that the insurgents are prepared
for battle with the government forces.
The independent newspaper, Bl Dic
tamen, publishes dispatches from Mer
ida, the capital of Yucatan, to the ef
fect that 40 persons were killed by the
Maya Indians on Saturday. Further
dispatches received here say that 5000
of these insurgents sacked the town of
Valladolid, 95 miles to the southeast
of Merida, killing all the principal gov
ernment employes, the chief of police
and others. They seized rifles and pis
tols and instituted a reign of terror.
Many of the inhabitants' of Valladolid
are fleeing to Merida.
Troops Hurry to Scene.
The gunboat Morelos has already left
this port with 600 -soldiers aboard, while
the Yucatan gunboat Zaragosa is lying
in the harbor ready to take 1000 addi
tional troops, who are expected from the
Interior. Railroad and telegraph com
munication between Merjda and the scene
of the trouble is cut off.
Twenty miles of the Yucatan railroad
have been destroyed by the Indians. It
is reported that many telegraph opera
tors have been killed or are prisoners.
A Judge of -the Criminal Court is among
the dead.
The rebels are strongly entrenched in
anticipation of the advance of the Fed
eral troops. Miximilian R. Bonilla, the
ex-rebel leader, and Colonel Victor Mon
tenegro are said to be at the head of
th uprising.
Several Towns Attacked.
The towns of Tinum, Uayama and
Tunkas. all between Merida and Valla
dolid, have been attacked, but reports
say that the families of all residents ex
cept officials have been left unmolested.
To what extent the insurgents pillaged or
killed at these places- has not been
A strict censorship has now been
established and the original, telegrams
giving the first details of the uprising
were sent by the government, which took
charge of the news. It is understood that
the cause of the trouble is dissatisfaction

with Mr. Taft put up a lengthy argument.
They insisted they had been misrepre
sented as to there having been cunythlng
clandestine about their agreement to and
filing of the new rates. They said they
had sent written notices to the shippers
and received the receipts of certain of the
snippers?, who had denied ever having
received such notices. Finally, they de
clared that the increased rates had been
filed in the same manner as the Inter
state Commerce Commission had ap
proved for the last ten years.
Roads See Chance to Win. .
The presidents told President Taft inci
dentally that they had been told by coun
sel that the Government's suit could not
be tiled. The President replied that he
would take that chance and said that the
best way for the railroads would be for
them to withdraw their increases. It
was then that the settlement was reached.
Chicago Men Xot Opposed to Rate
Increase, Under Restrictions.
CHICAGO. June 6. The Chicago
Board of Trade today passed a reso
lution to the ' effect that it was not
opposed to a moderate advance in
freight rates under certain conditions.
The resolution follows:
"Be it resolved. That if it is neces
sary for carriers to secure greater
revenue for the purpose of increasing
their transportation facilities, the Chi
cago Board of Trade is not opposed
to moderate advance in freight rates
on such commodities as do not now
bear a fair proportion of the total cost
of transportation, provided that' such
advances, if any. will not result in dis
criminations between communities."

The new railroad bill contains a clause
that gives it effect 60 days after being
signed by the President. It will be neces
sary to make the provision as to the su
pervision of rates by the Interstate Com
merce Commlssioin immediately effective,
and for this reason, as President Taft
Indicated tonight, it will be necessary to
send the bill back to conference.
Cabinet Members Called.
President Taft summoned three mem
bers of the Cabinet to sit with him Jn
conference with the four railroad offi
cials, who reached the White House at
8 P. M. Attorney-General Wiekersham
had all along been included. There was
some surprise, however, when the Presi
dent sent for Secretary Knox and Nagel,
and later Secretary Nolan and Commis
sioner Lane were included.
It was 6:05 P. M. when the conference
was concluded and the following state
ment given out:
"President Ripley, of the Atchison, To
peka & Santa Fe railroad: Walker E.
llines. acting chairman of the executive
committee. Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Railroad Company: Frederick A. Delano,
president, of the Wabash Railroad Com
pany, and S. M. Felton, president of the
Chicago Great Western Railway, a com
mittee representing 24 companies, de
fendant in a suit brought by the Gov"
ernment in Missouri in which Judge Dyer
granted an Injunction restraining in
creases In rates, met the President and
the Attorney-General today pursuant to
a request sent to the President a few
days ago. "V
Taft States His Case.
"The President stated to these gentle
men at the outset that the purpose of
the suit was to prevent the proposed rate
Increases (which, under the existing law
could not be investigated at all until
after they had become effective), so as
to preserve the status until the new
statute could be passed and the Commis
sion could have the power to investigate
rate advances as soon as announced and
before becoming effective.
"He slated further that he thought the
railroad companies must withdraw the
tariffs enjoined and all other tariffs filed
by them, effective on or after June 1,
11H0, and that none of them ought to file
any tarifft involving rate advances until
the new law should be passed, assuming
that it would be passed at the present
session of Congress.
"After conference, the railroad compa
nies announced by their president and
thereupon the President announced that
the purpose had been accomplished, and,
such result being accomplished, he saw
no occasion for pressing the suit, and the
same would be withdrawn."
The rate increases specified in the in
junction suit against the railroads in the
Western Association did not cover all the
Increases filed with the Conmlssion.
Livestock Rate Xot Affected.
The railroads today, however, agreed to
the withdrawal of the increases planned
for June 1 or after.

during the last few months will not come
under the agreement.
For instance, the increased rates on
livestock, effective last March, will not
be affected. The Important increases.

Real "First Aid In Eczema and Skin
Troubles of Every ature.
-.Most medicinal preparations for phy
sicians' use tell on the label what par
ticular disease they are best adapted
to cure. All the troubles readily cur
able by poslam, the new skin remedy,
make a lengthv list. Including every
surface skin affection, for poslam Is
"first aid" whenever the skin ails.
While primarily a remedy for eczema,
acne, tetter, barber's and all other
forms of itch, etc., it promptly cures
all the lesser skin affections, pimples,
blackheads, blotches, fever blisters, red
noses, inflamed skin, rash, herpes,
clears the complexion and keeps the
skin in a healthy condition.
Many of these minor troubles are
eradicated by poslam over night, others
in a day or two: and many cases of
eczema yield in two weeks. Itching
stops on first application, and the skin
begins to heal at once.
Every druggist keeps both the 50
cent size for minor troubles) and the
$2 Jar, and either of these may be ob
tained at the Skidmore Drug Co. and
the Woodard, Clarke & Co., as well as
other reliable drug stores.
But no oie is even asked to purchase
poslam without first obtaining a sam
ple package, which will be sent by
