EL PASO, Tex., May 6. The armistice
covering the Chihuahua district was
ended' all official communication be
tween the Mexican government and the
revolutionists was broken off today, and
tonight the lnsurrecto army under Gen

ously as ever.
Juares will be the first point of at

Madero tonight epitomized the reasons
for the break.
Judge CarbaJal having notified ' Dr.
Vasques Gomes, head of the rebel peace
commission, today that It waa impossible
for him to continue the peace negotia

rebels, the rebel chief having refused
to extend the armistice, the following
statement was Issued by General Ma
dura denning his position:
Diaz Declared Responsible.
"Aa Is well' knowr. I invited the peo
ple of. Mexico to take up arms against
Diaz, when all legal means to bring
about the will of the people had been
exhausted. The war waa Inevitable and
indispensable, and already we have be
gun to see Its fruits. Inasmuch as the
principles which the revolutionists pro
claimed have been accepted by General
Diaz and the members of his cabinet.
"But that Is. not enough, for while
General Diaa Is In power all laws will

to obtain peace in Mexico, I asked him
to make public the Intention which he
had manifested privately of resigning
from the government. In order that he
might not feel humiliated or have any
pretext to deny auch a request. I pro
posed that I also resign as provisional
president, even manifesting to him that
I would accept as president for the in

Carbajal's Answer Vague.
Though determined to pursue their
demands to the last ditch, the rebel
leaders tonight plainly showed their
disappointment t the outcome of the
day's events. They had thought that
some announcement from Diaz would
be forthcoming. " They were under the
Impression that the government had re
ceived from CarbaJal a copy of their
demands with regard to the resigna

baJal gave them today, addressed to
Gomes, they found vague and Inade
quate and without explanation of that
point. Gomes bad earlier today asked
CarbaJal for an answer to the rebel
demands. His request follows:

WASHINGTON, May . Stories
printed today that General Leonard
Wood, Chief of Staff of the Army, at an
informal gathering of members of the
House committee on military affairs
Thursday, expressed the opinion that
intervention in Mexico will be Inevit

Today's happenings brought out fresh
rumors that friction exists between the'
War and State Departments over the
handling of affairs connected with
the Mexican situation.
A department report also was per
sistent tonight that Secretary Knox's
resignation In the near future would
not cause surprise. No confirmation
was obtainable. A suggestion that
Knox might retire . from the 'state
portfolio was current, even before the
Mexican situation was sDrung.

Wood Denounces Story.
General Wood himself and Secretary
of War Dickinson were ' particularly
bitter in denouncing the circulation of
stories of intervention at this time,
saying they considered them calculated
to work infinite mischief and endanger
the lives of Americans in Mexico by in
flaming the natives and even to plunge
the two countries into war.
Through all of the conflicting reports
as to the American attitude there stood
out the fact that intervention in Mex
