Mexico, who is likely soon to be a con
stitutional president, was today jubi

the resignations of President Dlas and
Vice President" Corral. In a statement
to thg United Press today he said:
"Diaz now is gone off the backs of
the Mexican people, removing the heavi
est burden they ever bore. I shall go
to Mexico City in six or eight days. I
have sent Frederico Garza, Pino Sua re 2
and Mannel Urquldl to the capital to
arrange for my coming. .
"I, too, shall resign and will no longer
be. the provisional president of Mexico,
but only a citizen ready to aid in the
reconstruction of my country. If the
people want me to do so, I shall run
for the presidency-at the new election
which will he ordered by President P"?o
Tom De la Barra," .
To the very last moment the Madero
forces here expected a trick, and the
news of Diaz' actual resignation was
received with the greatest relief. It was
announced today that Madero will keep
the Insurrectos as the nucleus of a new
federal army. The federal forces, as
well an the rebels, today are undor
Madero's control, and it is probable that
the federal troops, not the Insurgents
will march to Saltillo to compel the
l.oanulla legislature to install Venus
