A. membership campaign only twenty-eight paid up momt >ership8 have been turned In by all the workers. Including business men and high school students. It is true that quite a number of memberships have been filed, yet it is surprising that the number of paid up memberships is so small. The business men of the city have been working with a !:ood will, some of the busiest of them giving the entire morning, both yester day and today, in canvassing for the .Association.. Yet they find the majority of the men of the city are indifferent to the cause, and a few. of them openly denounce the Y. M. C. A. and ail its work. Aside from their love for the Y. M. C. A., th4 business men know that the increase of business in this city will be si}^ great if the Association will remain, as to well repay a!l their efforts. The business men stand back, of the work, and 'f the pttblic will not respond, the business of the city will in the end suffer by their indifference. The high school students have also been taking a goo«l part, btit are by no means making the effort of the business men, although It will mean equally as much to the boy-life of the city, should the Y. M. C. A. be Uken from us. The Boys' Department has a|so been taking a part tn the work, but they have also seemingly quit, and are now far behind tbe high school s|u- dents in the results. The returns are coming in slow, and if the number •loes not increase very rapidly between now and Saturday night, the problem will become very .grave !B- deed.

The body will be shipped to Manhattan tomorrow morning for burial, and no services will be held here. Paul Hutchinson became ill last Sat urday morning and by Sunday morning the family lAyslcian told Mr. and Mrs. Cutler that scarlet fever had set in. Until the boy'» death, his condition became steadily worse. Jt is not known from just what source the fever came, but it is certain that the disease will not be spread, because the home has been quarantined since Sunday. Young Hutchinson came here a few- years agfo from Manhattan. Kas., ishortiy after the death of his mother. His father is now in California, in which state he has lived since the death of his wife.

Felix Diaz has been proclalnimi pro­ visional'President and a^In-ov|sionul cabinet formed at Vera Cruz. A crisis was reached in the affairs of Mexico and President Madero's administration Is at a critical point. The resignation of the cabinet was demanded in the!Chaml>er of; Deputies last night by Deputy Querido Moheno, but the president of the Chamber refused to permit a discussion and the motion will come up again today. • President Madero today minimized the importance of the rebel movement under Diaz. In an interview he reiterated his declaration that he would not resign. In order to crush the rebellion of Felix Diaz at Vera Cruz not only have the Federal armies from the north and south been commanded to converge on that city, but General Joaquin Beltran, who has been stationed at Esperanza, between the capital and Vera Cruz on the Mexican railway, for the purixisc of operating against the rebel general, Aguilar, has been ordered to move on Vera Cruz. From Mexico City itself two military trains under the command- of Colonel Xava- reto have been sent to General Beltran's support. The general public does not seem inclined to share In the optimism of the government. It Is considered not improbable that some part of .the army ordered to move against Felix Diaz will join him instead of lighting him. This belief found support today when detachment sent from Orizaba by General Beltran joined the rebels. Vera Cruz Is now completely isolated except liy water. The government has instructed the railways to withdraw all rolling stock and to establish new terminals at Orizaba. Jaiapa and Sierra Blanca. No trains will be run beyond 4he Federal lines. The total cutting off of Diaz from communication will depend on the loyalty of the gunboats, which it Is not considered likely can he malntalnedl Some of the men manning the gunj boats Bravo and Tainpico landed yes-r terday at Vera Cruz and offered their .«ervices to the rebel leader. Commodore Azuota refused to join the movement and had the guns of his boats trained on the city. « Send Word to Diaz. El Paso. Oct. 16.—A Felix Diaz rebel junta has been organized here. It was generally admitted fotlay among rebel leaders and refugees that the nephow of the former president of Mexico would be most .li-ceptabie to the revolutionary" element as a provisional p.'-esident. It is made known tbda.v .that overtures have been made by men prominent in Madero's government at .Mexico City to representatives here of Pascual Orozco, Jr.. leader of the rebel movement in the North. Also it Is learned from secret service sources that an .-embassy is on the way to'Paris to see Porthrio Diaz, president of Mexico before the Madero revolution. Departure of the messenger to Paris was almost synonymous w:ith the ar- ri\-al from Mexico City of another oin- i.ssary bearing word to the rebel •junta" here from what is said toj bo a revolutionary element at the national capital. It was said today on highest authority that Felix DInz is one of five named as presidential candidates to succded Madero. THE H0O£BN DAMOCLES.

Oct. 16.— General Felix Diaz, nephew cf General Porfirlo Diaz, the deposed president of Mexico, raised the banner of rebellion at Vera Cruz today. - He^ entered the city with SOO men and seized the arsenal and garrison, which comprised 500 of the Twenty-first infantry and one sixtee*:. gun b^^ttery. Diaz then placed men in charge of the two gunboats Tampico and Bravo, lying in the harbor. The news of the rising created excitement heife, although there were no stree* demonstrations. Mexicans generally appeared elated at the new developments. According to the re^ ports. General Diaz found many adherents when he entered Vera Cruz, including some of the troops, but the government has been informed that the Nineteenth infantry and the artil- lelry remain loyal. Colonel Gutierrez qommanding the loyal troops, notified tbe government that he will resist. 1 The two forces are now in the city of Vera Cruz and street fighting is im- menent President Madero has ordered the mobilization of 3,000 regulars to proceed against General Diaz. The arrest of alleged partisans of Diaz in Mexico City Is expected momentarily.
