Errlcone Jumped to his feet and cried
excitedly, "We found the cabman you
tried to suborn Into' saying he carried
Sortino. but he refused." -
All the prisoners took occasion to
begin a demonstration which the presi
dent had difficulty In quieting. Sortino
shouted vehemently that Abbatemagglo
could not be heard.
When the disorder was at an end.
Sortino turned In the direction of Mr.
McClellan and said Ironically. "If we
are acquitted here, we will go to Amer
ica, where you will accuse us of the
murder of Petroalno."
In answer to questions by the at
torneys for tha accused. Abbatemagglo
dented he had ever been a police spy.
At the conclusion of the session,
when the prisoners, handcuffed and
chained, were taken from the court
room and placed in prison vans, some
of them who had been In America ap
peared to recognize Mr. McClellan and,
one. addressing him In English, said:
"We are Innocent."
No Agreement Reached as to How
Arbitration Board . for America
and Britain Constituted.
WASHINGTON. May 2. Several ten
tative drafts of the proposed arbitra
tion treaty between the United States
and Great Britain were discussed by
President Taft and his Cabinet today.
Following the Cabinet aesslon. Secre
tary Knox and his aides continued the
discussion of details of phraseology,
but tonight the President told callers
no draft has been accepted as final
and It might be weeks before the treaty
could be submitted for ratification.
Some difficulties in framing the
treaty have disappeared, according to
the White House. The criticism of Eng-
lleh newspapers that the United States
Senate must be consulted before dis
putes could be arb'trated, was hardly
m. valid objection, the" President thought.
The treaty probably will be general
In character, it will provide, accora
Ing to the present Idea, that when dls-
putes arise between the United States
and Great tfrliain-mey may oe bud
mitted to an arbitral court for settle
In the opinion of the President and
his advisers. It Is perfectly natural tha
Senate here, or Parliament, or the
British Foreign Office should be con
cerned In arranging the details for the
settlement of each dispute.
So far no agreement has been reached
among the framers of too treaty here
as to how the proposed arbitral court
should be constituted. One-proposal Is
that the questions at issue be sub
mitted as they arise to The Hague tn
bunaL Another is that as each ques
tion comes up. a court be constituted
by the agreement of both governments
to settle that question aione.

Cooped Up; Americans Flee
for Safety.

of Federals Can Only Hold
Two Chief Cities of West,
NOG ALES, Arix.. May 2. Almost all
of Western Mexico Is In the hands of
the rebels, who have captured one
town after another and besieged Masat
lan, the principal Pacific seaport, and
Governor Rodog, of SInaloa, has so
small a force that he can do no more
than hold these two towns, and doubt
Is expressed whether he can hold them
long.' Fighting la almost continuous
In SInaloa and Sonora.
Not only Is the golltical welfare of
the Western Mexican states affected,
but American Interests are involved
and in danger. Even the lives of Amer
icans, hitherto held sacred by federals
and rebels, are no longer regarded as
safe in the Interior of Mexico.
Americans Warned to Flee.
Prominent railroad officials who
reached Nogales from Mexico today
brought with .them the warning from
the rebels to remove all their families
as auickly as possible into the United
States and to advise all of their Ameri
can friends to do likewise. Coupled
with these warnings, was the threat
of the lnsurrectos that they Intended,
before tbe end of the week, to launch
attacks against all the Mexican border
towns. Many American families are
coming acroqs 'the border.-
Word came from the Magaalena ais
trlct, southeast of Nogales of the com
plete wiping out of a body of 30 fed
erals under Luis Estrella by a band of
rebels In the vicinity of Octates.
Reports of heavy fighting near La
Colorado, southeast of Hermostllo, were
brought across the border today. The
rebels claim to have recaptured La
Colorado, which has been the scene of
bitter fighting during the present re
bellion. . '
Railroad Communication Cut.
The situation along the Southern Pa
cific lines in Mexico, which parallel the
western coast for many hundreds of
miles to the southward, is grave. Trains
are running on these lines only as far
south as Navojea, a hundred miles
south of Guaymas, and Pullman cars
are belngrun only as far as the latter
place. All railroad connections south
from Navojea are broken and there is
no way of reaching the many import
ant ports that line the coast. All wire
communication Is Interrupted to the
southward and only the smallest scraps
of Information concerning the real sit
uation are obtainable.
Seven more railroad bridges are re
ported burned and serious depredations
by guerrilla bands, who would recog
nize no authority superior to that of
their leader, are comftlalned of. Gov
ernor Rodog, of SInaloa, has command
ed a Southern Pacific train to carry
troops. Train service Is demoralized
and no more trains will be run until
fighting near Mazatlan stops. One loco
motive and two cabooses have been
pierced by shells.
Mexico City has been fully Informed
of the situation, but American interests

It Is said that the lnsurrectos were
amenable to spme proposition for
neutralizing tne roaa. oui wuuiu
n ih, iirmiitlon to allow the
federal government to transport over
the line eurucient troops o proiKt m
Inhabitants "f the country from bandits
and outlaws. Some of the lnsurrectos
at this point happened to remember. It
Is asserted, the fact that government
officials early in the revolution had
not Infrequently characterized the reb
els as bandits and outlaws, and feared
a possible troop movement.
There was a disposition to Insist on
official credentials from Senors Branlff
and Obregon before taking up their
propositions or engaging In peace dis
cussion. Some of the rebel chiefs took
tha stand that all peace envoys, in
cluding Carabajal, must have plenary
powera to act on behalf of the govern
ment. Senors Branlff and Obregon
have declared their unofficial person
ality In the proceedings and their de
sire to continue their work as private
citizens. The government is believed
to have been disposed to name Senors
Brans If and Obregon to the peace com
mission, but it is thought they will con
sent to act In an advisory capacity.
The rebel leaders today completed
their party platform, and all the rebel
leaders affixed their signature to It.
They call it an "act" and admit It is
analogous to a declaration of Independ

Much secrecy, is maintained aDoui

there la good ground for the belief to
night that the Question of the resigna
tion of President Diaz and Vice-President
Corral Is taken up. Some pertinent
questions, such as. the exact time or
the President's retirements, are said to
be contained in the document as pre
requisites to a complete rehabilitation
of the government. At first It was
though) the. informal and indirect as
surances which had reached here about
President Diaz' disposition, to ' resign
might be sufficient and before the
peace conferees announce the result of
their labors. It ls quite possible that
these questions may be omitted, but the
more radical of the leaders are very,
insistent, especially ill view of the re
ports of rebel military trlumpns in
other parts of the republic- They say
the negotiations at tne aiaaero Daso oi
operations must bring satisfaction to
the entire revolutionist party and not
to any one part. . -'

DOUGLAS. Ariz., May 2. Refugee
American mining men who reached
Douglas today from Mexico report wide
spread v pillage in the State of Sonora
from Nacozarl south, and Jhe killing of
two Americans at Santa Nina mine,
southwest of Ures. A band of outlaws"
appeared at Santa Nina camp, where S.
J. Clark was employed as watchman.
Clark was absent when the outlaws,
numbering 30, appeared. His wife tried
to defend the camp with a shotgun, but
was wounded. . The outlaws hid in the
house while the woman bathed her
wounds. When her husband appeared
he was riddled with bullets, and his
wife was then murdered.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark had been only a
snort time at the mine, having passed
through Donslaa a few months ago on
their wsty to Sonora. Their former home
Is unknown.
There are no federal Mexican officers
and only 20 soldiers between Cananea
and Ures and the whole country along
the Sonora River Is without law or or
der. Another band of outlaws entered
the Chumlta mine, shot the Mexican
guard, looted the commissary and threw
the ore for shipping over the dump.
Another band sacked the camp of the
San Lorenzo mine southwest of Naco
zarl and when their right to loot the
commissary was disputed, took Martin
Hickinaon. the proprietor, and Charles
Fineout. an employe, prisoners to Hue
pac, where they are now detained. At
the latter place every store was de
molished and the goods confiscated.
