Madero announced today that he expected the peace pact to be signed bj both sides by Friday morning Judge Carbajal, the Diaz envoy, ex pects an armistice at once. It is reported in a telegram from Mexico City, that the government, by several arrests frustrated a plot to kidnap President Diaz; and carry him n an auto to Pachuca, fifty-five miles from there, where the rebels are in control Among those arrested is a chauf- feur. He says the plan -was to drive a motor car filled with the plotters nto the Diaz automobile on its wa> from the president's residence to the national palace. Then, according to the informer, the aged head of the government was to be seized, thrusl nto another automobile and whirled out of the capital. The government troops, sent to 5achua to engage the rebels, halted lalf there on orders from the capital. The rebels marched into Pachuca 800 j strong, and helped the citizens in re- storing order. While discussing peace, Madero was preparing for war. He an- nounced officially that he intended to _ attack Chihuahua, the onlj con- dition against this plan being a pos- sible agreement for another armistice or peace brought promptly.

Mr. Bryan patted him on the back, figuratively speaking, in an editor- ial in the Commoner and said that as a new senator he was starting off on the right foot. Mr. Bryan and Senator Kern had the bill introduced in the house and made a part of the program in that body. It passed the house after a memorable fight in which Represen- tative Fred S. Jackson, a new mem- ber from Kansas, threw a bomb into the democratic membership by offer- ing an amendment making the pub- licity of receipts and disbursements applicable to contests at primaries as well as at the general elections. The Jackson amendment required every candidate for a congressional nomination to file with the clerk of the house of representatives at Washington a certain length of time before the primary, a statement of the money received to help him in his canvass and the disbursements thereof.

C., May 17 With nine trust prosecutions pending at the present time, department of justice officials admit today they have been hard hit by the Standard Oil decision. Their work, they de- clare, has been practically doubled as in addition to proving that the nine corporations are trusts they must now prove also that they are unreasonable ones. The investigations now under way are against the beef trust, bath tub trust, steel trust, electrical trust, coal trust, paper trust, window glass trust, steamship and sugar trusts. Atorney General Wickersham has not vet indicated what will be done in the matter of criminal prosecu- tions. While there was much grati- fication in administration circles over the order for the dissolution of the giant corporation which had been de- clared "an unreasonable" combination and monopoly in restraint of trade, there unquestionably was also some misgiving as to the interpretation of the anti-trust Jaw giving the courts the right to determine whether or not a monopoly was and de- claring a "reasonable" monopoly not to be in contravention of the statute.

The capital stock of the company is to be increased to and if the deal is appror- ed by the stockholders of the Fre- mont company, as is expected, stockholders in the latter com- pany will receive stock in new concern at full face Talue and back dividends may be paid. A- bout of the stock is held in Sandnsky, "Just as soon as we get things straightened around we shall open the Sandusky plant and operate it to full capacity" said. Harry Zimmerman, who is to be in charge of the vari- ous plants, to the Star-Journal Wed- nesday. "We think it an excellent deal, one of the best ever made in Fremont, and it will benefit ky greatly When operated to full capacity, tne Sandusky plant, located on Market street near the B. O. depot, will employ 300 people. It Is hoped to secure the full 300 here and ft waa said Wednesday that a higher seals of wages would probably be paid. Mr. Zimmerman said he thought work would, be started here within two or three weeks, or at least "With- in a month. It is possible that Sam- uel Bickley, who was formerly sup- erintendent of the plant, will again, be in charge.
