NEW YORK. March 16. (Special.)
Frank Work, for many years one of
the best-known brokers of Wall street,
where he made a large fortune and
noted as an owner of famous harness
horses, died today at his home, 13 East
Twenty-sixth street, following an at
tack of bronchitis. He had been 111
about ten days.
At the bedside when Mr. Work;
passed away were bis daughters, Mrs.
Burke-Roche, from whom he was es
tranged for several years because of
her marriage to Aurel Batonyi, a pro
fessional whip; Mrs. Peter Cooper Hew

Martin Burke and Dr. E. L. Barnett.
It Is understood that the fortune left
by Mr. Work exceeds $20,000,000. Prac

In Wall, street, to the ramifications of
which Mr. Work was Introduced many
years sku by William H. Vanderbilt.
Great Fortune Amassed.
Mr. Work once owned a seat on the
New York Stock Exchange, which he
sold about ten years ago. He was
very successful as an operator In large
financial transactions and made his
fortune by the time he was 70 years
old, retiring from Wall street in 1891.

wreck his home.
Society Is Stirred.
Newport and New York society was
as much stirred at the time Mrs. Ba
tonyi sued for her divorce as when her
marriage to the man she engaged to
train her show horses was announced,
because Mr. Work bitterly announced
that his daughter could not return to
his home and enjoy the luxury afforded
by his millions, even if she did divorce

NEW YORK. March 16. That the
terms on which the Mexican revolution

visit to New York and that he takes
them with him to Mexico, for which
country he started this morning, was
admitted by Senor Francisco Madero,
father of the Provincial President, who
Is here with his two other sons.
Mr. Llmantour admitted the need of

immediately setting out for the capital
of his country.
The Maderos were asked a number
of pointed questions this afternoon.
"You must realize," they said, "that
we are in a most delicate position. We
cannot talk freely now, but hope soon

Terms could not be perfected, they

their distrust of any promises which
the Mexican government might make,
and said It would be impossible to per

a condition precedent that they should
first lay down their arms, since that
would mean that the leaders would be
hanged as a preliminary measure and
the reforms never carried out.
"The lnsurrectos," said they, "demand
radical reforms, and a thorough change
in the personnel of the administration
by having fair elections."
