"I aecuso Mr. Wilson that because df his personal antipathy for President Francisco I. Madero, which he fhowed in many ways, he would not URe his great moral power with the men of the new government in his behalf. It Is certain they would not have refused a clear and determined petition of Mr. Wilson, which was the only means of paving- the lives of the prlHoners. This ho did not do in spite of cablegraphlc orders from Washington, In spite of the passionate and pitiful appeals of Mrs. Madero and Mrs. Pino SuarcT:, In aplte of the manifest desire of the other diplomatic representatives, In spite of tha position that I made to him In the embassy In the name of the Masonic lodges of the valley of Mexico, of which I am actually the grand master, and In spite of the clamors for clemency of all the people In general. SOLKMV PIWMISK VIOLATED. "I accuse Mr. Wilson of having: known that Mr. Madero and Mr, Pino Suarez were going to be sacrificed with the pretext of an Imperious political necessity, although General JIuorta and General Diai made ti solemn promise in the presence of diplomatic representatives that If the prisoners would sign their resignation their lives would be rcspectad, eiid they would immediately be allowed to leave for a foreign country. "I accuse Mr. Wilson of having waBhed his hands, like Pilatlus, when the prisoners were not allowed to leave for Europe after having- signed their resignations, thus mocking Mrs. Madero and Mrs. Pino Suarez, who, because of the assurances Mr. Wilson made to them, were waiting for their husbands at the Vera Cruz railway depot. "I accuse Mr. Wilson that, although knowing that the new government mill retained as prisoners Mr. Madero and Mr. Suarez, after they had signed their resignations, thus breaking the jromisn of which the same ambassador was a party thereof, he refused to Tut them under the protection of the American Hag with the pretext that he did not desire to be responsible for the future actions of President Madero nnd Vice President Suarez. SAVS VILSO 1 LAY ED DOUIILE. "I accuse Mr. Wilson, the American ambassador, of double conduct, having one attitude and advice for the members of the new torn government and another, which he pretended to have with Mrs. Madero and Mrs. I'ino Suares. "I accuse Ambassador Wilson of not having accurately Informed his government of the occurrences In Mexico and of always justifying the victors. "I accuse Mr. Wilson of having mixed himself up In the pottl?s cf Mexico to the extent that In answering a communication of General Huerta he openly advised him to have the Mexican congress authorize his acts. This was badly taken by the great majority of Mexicans, especially as the government of the United States had not recognized the change of gov rnment in Mexico. "I accuse Ambassador Wilson of using means among the members of the American colony of this capital of Mexico to have the government In WaBhlngton keep hhn at his present post. There is no doubt that this would be repulsive to most Mexicans after the part played by Mr. WilBon tn the last political tragedy In our country. 1IECXAHES LIKE IX PERIL.

A report of an open break between President Huerta and Felix Diaz, to materialize within the next 24 hours, have been circulated about the capital during the day. No confirmation of this caii be obtained and at present the two factions appear friendly. Owing to the belief in certain quarters that some demonstration of animosity between the leaders will happen soon, many foreign residents in the capital have removed to other parts of the republic, some even starting for the United States. A band of 600 Taqul Indians to-day allied with the constitutionalists in nnr,rg hn taken the warDith against federals in the southern portion of the State. A number of rebels In the Rusteca district, who submitted a short time ago, renounced the government to-day. Andrew Almaxvi. former rebel, chief In the State of Guerrero, has Joined Pascual Orozco. Jr., and will aid In the pursuit of Z ft p fit ft. Not even the most optimistic view taken to-night indicates the slightest progress toward the pacification of the republic during the last week. The situation in the north Is as grave as ever, if not more so, and several powerful rebel leaders remain un-captured. DEVY rREflDE'VT'S JtESIGNATIOV. NEW ORLEANS. April 5. Official denial of the reported Intention of General Huerta to resign the Presidency of Mexico in favor of Pedro Laseurain, Minister of Foreign Relations In the Madero cabinet, was received here to-day from Minister of Foreign Affairs de la Barra by Dr. Ornelas, consul-general of Mexico at New Orleans. The message reads: "News relating to the appointment of Senor Laseurain absolutely false."' American Nurses Tell Horror Tale Vivid tales of the Bcenes of carnage during the eight days of fighting that resulted in the overthrow of the Madero regime. In Mexico were told by Miss Patricia Bates and Miss Leslie Strickland, American trained nurses, who arrived last night on the steamer San Juan. , "The majority of the persons killed were non - combatants," said Miss Bates, "as the troops of the Madero and Huerta forces literally bombarded the peaceful citizens of Mexico City out of their homes during the eight dreadful days of fighting. "Myself and Miss Strickland were at the home of Buch Parada, next to the German consulate, when a shell burst three feet away from the window and Itg fragments were hurled through the panes. The members of the Parada family, which has one son attending Stanford, had. narrow escapes during the bombardment. "One day we were ricking up wounded troops that littered the streets and carrying them to a hospital In a Red Cross motor car. Suddenly we ran Into a hall of machine gun and rifle bullets, and we had to turn around and run a gauntlet of Are. One of the tires of the car was punctured, but we managed to escape with our lives. "In returning to the hospital by another route we saw a newsboy lying dead in the street with his papers In his arm. We also saw an automobile running wild, the chauffeur having been shot dead In his peat.

" It Is not enough to build and create a civic center, but we want to make the whole city of San Francisco beautiful, and In this respect to make It the most beautiful city of California. " John Bakewell Jr., member of the firm of Bakewell & Brown, the successful architects In the competition for plans for the City Hall, was the next speaker. He took occasion to thank the people of the city for the opportunity to build a monumental building. "It falls to the lot of very few architects," he said, "to have their plans for such a building accepted. And I am proud to be connected with such an undertaking." He also gave a few facts that he said might be of Interest, among which were that the City Hall will be 300 feet In height, which is ten feet higher than the capitol at Washington, and lacks about sixty feet of being as high as St. Paurs Cathedral In London. The combined length of the corridors, he said, was about 4.000 feet, so that the janitors would have to scrub nearly a mile of floors every day. Estimating one and a half square feet for every person in the city, he said that the entire population could crowd Into It and upon the roof. The weight of the building, he said, will be about 100,000 tons or about twice the weight of tons, or about twice of the city. OXE OF GREAT PROBLEMS. Supervisor Ralph MeLearn, member of the building committee of the Board of Supervisors, was the next speaker. He said: "This demonstration here to-day Is the result of the activity, energy and the confidence the people of this city have in this administration. One of great problems given this administration for solution was the building of a city hall, and to-day we are hero to celebrate the turning of the first spadeful of dirt. "Cpon what was practically the unanimous verdict of the architects of the city, we changed the location of the proposed new city hall from the old site to the one we are now on. The new hall will face Van Ness avenue and the setting sun, and will extend to the north as far as McAllister, and to the south to Grove street." Supervisor McLeran also paid a high tribute to the work of City Attorney Long and his office In aiding the Supervisors to acquire all the lands necessary for the civic center. GREAT WORK OF ART. John Galen Howard, member of the consulting board of architects, called attention to the fact that it was al most a year to an hour that the citizens had put in motion the civic cen ter project. In this work he Bald the citizens were expressing themselves in a great work of art, and that any one gazing upon the wonderful group of buildings the city proposes to erect will realize that he is looking upon San Francisco in all her magnificence. Dr. E. R. Taylor, former Mayor of the city, who occupied a seat by the side of Mayor liolph, was Introduced. He said that he had not come 'to make a speech, but to show his Inter est In the great work of the civic center. He said that he was a San Franciscan first, last, and all the time, and always ready to respond when the city called upon him. He said that he was glad to have lived to see the day when San Francisco was not McCallum Silk Hosiery For Women $1 and $1.50 Better looking, better wearing stockings are not and canribt be made to sell at these prices.

Lovable Nature to Win Men Dress Well, Leaders Lay Down New Rules to Sound Warning Against "Tacky" Clothes in Fight, "Be as attractive, as chamlng and as lovable as you possibly can. That Is the way to win equal suffrage fiom men. You will never do It by being lacky." This Is the answer of California women, as expressed hy Mrs. Ella M. Sexton, to Dr. Anna E. Blount of Chicago, who at the St. Louis suffrage convention Friday denounced gay and sweetly becoming frocks and called for a suffrage attire of plain and prosaic habilaments. While the true daughter of Eve, handsome Mrs. Grace Wilbur Trout, who acclaimed fine and tasteful raiment as a goodly means toward the suffragists' desired end, has found a palpitating echo In the Golden West where the suffrage battle was so lately fought and won who shall contradict it? by a campaign of de licious smiles and Faquinesque creations. ME.VS FEARS ARE ALLAYED. While many prominent leaders of the former California suffrage movement gave their opinions on the subject yesterday, it was Mrs. Sexton who epitomized the St. Louis situation when, after the quotation above, she said: "The fear of man when equal suffrage was first proposed was that It would turn his women folk Into bifurcated females. Something strenuous in talk and unlovely to look on. "We proved the contrary In California and we won. And I say this while owning that I am not an ardent suffragist. Taste in dress, charm In manner, a lovable disposition, all the thousand and one little methods of making herself attractive that woman has at her command should be used, not only as a means to gain suffrage, but to help in correcting man's wrong impression." None of the women Interviewed last night took the matter over seriously. They vote, they have won and such tempests in the St. Louis teapot cause little but amusement. SAVS MEN DIFFER, TOO. Mrs. Rhody Ringrose, In commenting on the subject, said: "Of course, women have different ideas on dress. I don't believe it has anything really to do with the suffrage question. Don't men differ on the subject, too? I notice many of you going down the street with tightly fitting coats, correct creaBes In your trousers and cunning little green bows on the back of your hats, swinging a cane and all in tha latest style; while others tramp through life In any old clothes of a ten-year old fashion or no fashion at all." Mrs. D. J. Patterson upheld Mrs. Trout In no uncertain terms. She said: "If a little primping helps us to keep the affection of our husbands It naturally has a general effect on all men. I don't believe In being dowdy and, while equal suffrage is a great principle It will lose none of Its prestige if it is presented to masculine attention by well-dressed women." LIKES TASTE I.V DRESS. Mrs. Julia Sanborn approves of taste in dress. "A happy mean," she said yesterday, "Is what Is needed In this case," and her opinion was content to be a utilitarian city alone, but one that loved the beautiful as well. At the conclusion of the speeches Chairman Paul Bancroft of the Building Committee presented Mayor Rolph with a silver spade appropriately engraved. The Mayor, followed by the speakers, descended from the stand and with the spade dug the first earth for the excavation and threw It Into a waiting cart.

I do not think It is the dress so much as the woman who wears It, and I think It is the vital subject on which she speaks rather than her attire that should be the attraction." Mrs. D. E. Easton summed up Cali 15 FAIR ENVOYS FOR IDAHO Governor Halnea Names Two Commissioners to Exposition. BOISE (Idaho), April 5.

"It Is every woman's duty to look as attractive as possible. This Is one thing they are here for." And so the women argue over the matter In the turbulent Middle West, while in California "Ysobel, the Suffragette," rests calmly on the laurels of her wlnsomeness. $900 FOR CONSCIENCE FUND WASHINGTON, April 5.

The campaign of revenge for the long sentence Im posed upon Mrs. Emmeline Pank- hurst, which the suffragettes threat-enedj Is proceeding actively and seems likely to spread. Many outrages have been com mitted during the last twenty-four hours. These included the destruc tion of the grandstand of the Ayr race track in Scotland, where the principal Scottish meetings are held, me damage being estimated at J15.000, and an attempt was made to burn the new grandstand of the Kelso race course, also in Scotland. Two women were caught after thev had ignited oll-soked rags, which they had placed beneath the Kelso stand. SHOP WIXDOWS ARE SMASHED. Many shop windows were smashed In Glasgow, Including those of the Labor Exchange; telephone wires were cut at Llantarnam, in Monmouthshire; letter boxes were damaged at Liverpool, the flower beds in the public park at Newcastle were torn up and letter boxes burned or damaged in London. The fact that Mrs. Emerson of Jackson, Mich., has declared herself satisfied with the concession made by the British homo seea-tary, Reginald McKenna, in taking ten days off the prison sentence of her daughter, Miss Zelie Emerson, has greatly displeased many of the militants. MISS SCOTT TROV SHOCKED. Miss Scott Troy, the San Francisco suffragette, who has been one of the must active workers in Mgss Emerson's behalf, in an interview to-night said: "I am thoroughly sv.ocked at Mrs. Emerson's weak attitude after her strong letters and cablegrams to the United States, and the firm support she has had from English doctors and men and women of hit,'h position, who know neither her daughter nor herself personally, but who realize the awful consequences of forcible nasal feeding in English prisons, "I blame the embassy for her change of attitude. Mrs. Emerson is one of those Americans who are evidently overcome by a nod from an English person in a position superior to that in which they move. It is not a case of an individual, but a case of an American citizen; and Mrs. Em erson, whose attitude has been hot nd cold, should be disregarded and the campaign continued, because it will establish a precedent for future treatment of American prisoners In English prisons." fM mLgmpg Will Signs of the Times When you see a wooden Indian or a striped pole outside a shop, you know what's within.
