El Paso, Tex., May 27.—Francisco I Madero issued a manifesto renouncing his title of president of tile provisional government and explaining the pear© terms reached between himself and the federals. Ile expresses the utmost conlidenc© In the good faith of Francisco De I^a Barra while he holds the office of tem-porary president of Mexico, and says the insurrecto troops are at the dis-IHJsa! of IK* La liana in restoring peace in Mexico. Madero explains that he did not hold out for all that he and his party declared for at San Luis Potosi last November, when they demanded that all governors must be swept aside, localise he had a chance to get peace by accepting one more than half th© governorships and he considered this agreeable, as]*ecially since the resignations of Diaz and Corral were also promised and new elections are to bo held. Madero was asked if ho would announce his candidacy for the presidency of Mexico and he said lie would not, that such a thing was not considered premier in his country, but his friends would advance his name at tile proper time. There is an undercurrent of dissatisfaction among the rebel army, even ti.at part of it in Juarez, as is shown in a communication sent by the light-ters to General Orozco and Colonel Villa, informing them that the faith of the men is in their military leaders ana not in their provisional pres-dent, nor in life l*a Barra. The soldiers also suggest that it should be their right to select the presidential candidate at the coming election. Effort is being made to restore telegraph and railroad communication south to Chihuahua and Mexico (Tty, so that Madero can go on to Merieo < ity and join De La Barra iii his work. Madera has set no date for departing.

Harriman is to Build University on Pacific Coast as Monument to Husband. Indianapolis, May 27. — Judgments totaling $1,350 have been rendered against the Monon railway by Judge Anderson in federal court on complaint of District Attorney Charles W. Miller that the company in November and December, 1909. and June, 1910, had violated the federal law against keeping telegraph operators on duty for more than nine hours consecutively. The two complaints against the comicry charged forty violations of the law at Monon, Delphi, Bensellaer and Eolith Hammond. A penalty of $200 on the first paragraph of each action was inclosed and a i>enalty of $25 on each of the other offenses charged. The Monon in its answer admitted that die charges were true. Newr York, May 27.—The American says this morning that Mi's. Edward ll. Harriman, America's richest woman, is to lie the founder of a great university, a glorious monument to the memory of her husband, in the west. It became known that Mrs. Harriman, casting about for some means of disbursing her great fortune in a way that would be of benefit to the people of the country, had decided upon the establishment of an institution of learning as affording the best medium for such disbursement. Her plans are not fully developed, but in a tentative way she has decided to found a university that will be second to none in the country iii point of curriculum and endowment. Millions as needed, will be supplied from tile Harriman estate to make this the greatest educational enterprise in the world. The institution will l>e called the Edward ll. Harriman university. Speculation as to the exact location of the Harriman university favors southern California. Mrs. Harriman has not divulged her plans in this reelect. except to say that the institution will be on the Pacific coast. INDIANA DOUBLE TRAGEDY Washington, May 27.—Senator William Lorimor of Illinois will try to forestall a second investigation of the charges of corruption in connection with his election by resigning, is tho belief that is now widespread among the Fnitcd States senators. Mr. Lorimor is in Chicago. No one in authority to speak for him is prepared to say what he will do. But there is a pretty well settled conviction in the senate that if the senator from Illinois submits his title to his seat in the senate to the second test of an investigation he will forfeit the title. The sentiment in favor of a reopening of the Ixjrimer case is now* practically unanimous. It is predicted that there will not be a single vote in opposition to ordering a second investigation. Senator Lorimer’s chances of retaining his seat are jeojKirdized not only by the new evidence that has turned up, but by the fact that the senate personnel has materially changed since the former vote vindicating him was taken. It is almost certain that if a vote were taken today upon th© record of the Lorimer case as submitted to the first investigation, tho sci at or would be ousted. But the second investigation is certain to make some of Senator Lorimer’s close friends and political managers uncomfortable. The lorimer case was before the senate almost all day, but it was not concluded. Senator LaFollette occupied most of the time in concluding a speech that occupied a part of three days Mr. LaFollette advocated a special committee to investigate the case. He gave notice he would move to amend his pending resolution to shrike cut the names of the committee he bad proposed and would ask to choose the members of the committee by ballot Senator Bailey addressed the sen ate in favor of a reinvestigation Speaking for the senators who voted with him to validate the title of Sena-atcr Lorimor to his seat, Senator Bailey declared that it was because of the new evidence that he and his con ferrees were ready to reopen the case. On the record in the former case they still believed Mr. Iprimer was entitled to his seat. Senator Borah advocated the LaFollette resolution. Dr. Wm. D. Grant in Assembly When Decision Is Announced. SUSPENDED ERMI MINISTRY Must Remain Out of Pulpit Until He Renounces His Errors and Promises No Longer to Propagate Such Teachings. Harvey Moon Kills Constable Cousin Near Clayton. and Clayton, Ind., May 27. — Harvey Moon shot and killed Oliver Wilhoit, a constable from Danville, and then went across fields about a quarter of a mile to the home of George Buldock and shot Mrs. Buldock, who was standing in the kitchen with her little five-year-old daughter. The bullet passed through the heart, killing her instantly. Mr. Buldock was Moon’s cousin. Wilhoit had a writ of ejectment for Moon and was at the latter’s home removing the furniture when Moon attacked the constable. Moon obtained possession of Wilhoit’s revolver during the scuffle and turned it on its owner, tiring three shots. All took effect. The motive for the crimes seems to have been the trouble on account of bad feeling aroused by a love affair of several years’ standing. Moon was in love with Mrs. Buldock’s sister and bis attentions were opposed by Mrs. Buldock. THOMAS F. RYAN IS ILL Condition, Following an Operation, Is Considered Grave. DARROW PLAYS FOR I DELAY Asks for Postponement of Day When McNamaras Must Plead. GARIBALDI AND OSfiZCO Fighters to Whom Soldiers Cling, Rather Than to Madero. WANTS TO LOOK UP STATUTES ILLINOIS FULL OF STALE DRUSS Two Prominent Los Angeles Attorneys Are Retained for Defense-Grand Jury Resumes Hearing Witnesses. Atlantic City, May 27.—A demcnstrar tion of any kind among the OOO commissioners in the Presbyterian ger.er-1 assembly was kept down by careful missionary work of the leaders when* the judicial commission made the official announcement of finding Dr. William D. Grant of Northumberland presbytery guilty of heresy. Instead of the expected strife for days, as feared' by the men at the head! of affairs, prayerful silence ensued with the adoption of the court’s decision, which carried recommendation of leniency and suspension from th© exercise of the office of the ministry until he makes “renunciation of his errors and satisfied his own presbytery that he would no longer propagate such teachings.” Dr. Grant was in assembly and heard his own fate. He was heart broken over the unexpected decision, which reverses that given by the Northumberland presbytery some time ago. Ho left Atlantic City for Philadelphia. In an interview he said: “I shall clearly state soy views to my own presbytery w’hen the proper time comes. I am just beginning to realize the terrible truth of the commission’s verdict. There is no enmity in my heart for them. They did their duty as they saw it, the same as I have always tried to do in ministering to my charge. My regret for the painful affair is entirely sincere. God and my friends are with me in their sympathy.” Los Angeles, 51 ay 27.—Clarence Barrow made his first move as chief counsel for the defense of the McNamara brothers, charged with murder r.nd participating in dynamiting plots, when he conferred with Judge Walter Bordweli regarding a postponement of ti e date when the brothers will be required to plead. Darrow told Judge Bordweli that he desired to familiarize himself with the California statutes bearing on the crimes charged against the defendants before they plead. June I had been set as the date for them to plead to the indictments returned, but Judge Bordweli will pass upon an oral petition from the defense for an extension of time for pleading.

Donaldson was charged with selling stock in the Mississippi Valley Iron and Furnace company to James H.

CONVICT MENACES GOVERNOR Columbus, O., May 27.—In the Nye bribery case the defense introduced other witnesses to impeach the character of E. A. Crawford, state printer, who declares that Representative Nye solicited a bribe of $500 from him to support the Kimball gerrymander bill. In a general way it may be said that the force of this impeachment testimony was broken. In one important particular, however,the evidence given by Crawford wras dissipated. Crawford! had said that Representative Nye had come to his office and finding him out, had left word with his (Crawford’s) chief deputy, E. S. Nichols, for Crawford to see him. Nichols testified that this) was an error, but that Dr. N>e and Crawford had talked in the latter’s office over th© gerrymander bill. There was no mention of money, Nichols said, but Dr. Nye had declared that if Adams county, w’here Crawford lived, was to be taken care of in the bill, his own, Pike county, also should be cared for.

No action is pending to the end that any officers of the Standard Oil company are to be criminally prosecuted. Attorney General Wickersham explains that this does not mean necessarily that the officers of the Standard Oil company are not to be prosecuted for violations of the Sherman anti-trust law. He says it means that he answers categorically the questions asked in the resolution and nothing more. Washington, May 27.—There is no protection for the people of Illinois from fraudulent and deleterious drugs !*and medicines so long as they are manufactured and sold within the state, according to A. Hanby Jones, the Illinois food commissioner, w ho is iii conference here with federal and other state food authorities. Patent medicine factories in Illinois make and place on the market vast quantities of nostrums, which are not only harmful to the health but swindle in the pretention of cures borne upon their labels, says Mr. Jones. Yet, so long as they are not shipped out of the state they cannot be suppressed under any Illinois law. Only when they enter into interstate commerce are they liable to seizure by tho federal government and/ their manufacturers made subject to prosecution and punishment. “The next legislature ought to pass a law placing drugs and medicines under the state food act,” said Mr. Jones. “There are hundreds of dang stores in Illinois in which the drugs have been on the shelves from twenty to thirty years. Such drugs are unfit for use. There iB absolutely no inspection of drugs.” Storm Ravages Durham, N. C. Durham, N.
