Oct. 23.—The Women's Federated Clubs of the Eigbtli Congressional D^^lct. in annual session here .today adopted a resolution urging state pensions for widows.

Another resolution favoring woman's suffrage was adopted. Miner Manning, for several years a clerk with in the T. A. Joyce grocery and with the ^'ewby company when that firm succeeded Joyce, has resigned his position and will probably enter business for himielf.

General Diaz, although not new a member of t^ie army, is amenable in such court under the law which provides for such trial of any civilian under like circumstances. The soldiers of the rebellious 'r.iops will be decimated—one in ten being executed. They will be chosen by lot to pay the penalty for all. The revolutionists in the barracks have not surrendered. They say they will hold out,until the man Is killed. However, the weaker silrlt* seem to be trying to escape. The killed and wounded number less than one hundred. No foreigner was wounded. Desultory firing continued after the federals entered the town. Instead of a great battle, everytiiing was in a muddle. Rebel and fvleral encountered each other In the streets withoTit one knowing which side the other was affiliated with as uniform;; of all were alike The downfall of the Diaz movement leaves three rebellions in operation in Mexico, headed respectively by Zapata, Aguilar and Orozco. It is presu:n- ed the government forces employed against Diaz will be concentrated upon Aguilar, who is likely to be driven back into the niountains. that the par- suit of the small bands into which Orozco's force has broken up will be resumed and that the only really se vere undertaking confronting the federal army will be in connection with the Zapata rebellion.

"About 600,000, or about one-half, of the voters of the state have been rolled. Upon the ratio shown by Vila half of the state, and the figures include all sections. W^ilson will 'get 425,000 votes. He will not get as many votes as Bryan did In 1908 because he will lose the Democratic farmers who do not agree with him tn his assertion that fanners do not need protection, while Democratic bustnese men are declaring themselves in'fav- of a continuance of present prosperous business conditions. Roosevelt will receive approximately 300,000 votes. President Taft v^lll get 475,000 votes, which will give him the electoral vote of the state by a plurality of 60,000.

Justice Goff, who presided over the trial, finished his charge to the Jury late this afternoon. Justice Goff ruled that conviction or acquittal rested almost solely on the question of whether Sam Schepps was or was not. an accomplice. He ruled that Rose, Webber and Vallon were accomplices and upon their testimony Becker could not be convicte<l i>t murder in the first degree, even though the evidence showed he had instigated the murder. "It matters not," Justice Goff said, "whether the hand that killed Rosenthal was the hand of Becker or not. If you find that Becker gave Instructions to Rose that resulted In Rosenthal's death, then Becker Is guilty of murder In,the first degree. "There Is no question that Rose, Webber and Vallon were accomplices" "As to Rose, you can ask yourselves. Is it within the limit of probabilities that he could concoct this scheme of sending Becker to tne electric chair? You may consider whether It is within his mentality to devisei this conspiracy, unaided, to save bis own life If the story Impressed you as a concoction, the case of the state will have to fall and you will have to ac- (iuit the defendant." Becker's wife was in the first row of seats. Justice Goff spoke almost in a whisper an dthe jurors leaned forward In their seats to hear him. Becker strained to catch every word By tonight Becker should know his fate./ His trial for the murder of the "squealing" gambler.
