EL PASO, May spite of 'the fact General Madero this afternoon began the latest peace conference, his men here are in almost open rebellion. The new insurrecto oovrnment taking in about a day at the customs house here ana tne men are demanding that 'pey be- gin the march on Chihuahua. Many doubt Madero's ability to hold his men in check. As the news came from Mexico City last night that Diaz is willing to retire and that Madero will be call- ed to the capital to advise Senor De La Barra, who will become president, thus practically sharing the highest office in the land, a general five-day armistice between the revolutionists and the federal government was a- greed upon to take effect throughout Mexico immediately upon receipt of formal authorization from Mexico City. It was signed by Judge Carba- jal, the federal peace envoy, and Dr. _Vasquez Gomez, Jose Pino Suarez Proposed Arbitration Treaty, -Open To All, Is Published To World A REAL TEST FOR JAPAN German Expert Says Kaiser And Mikado May Form Al- liance Against Us, and Franqisco sr, the mem- bers of the rebel peace commission. This is the first general armistice agreed on since the revolution began last November and is expected to call a halt to warfare in central and southern Mexico. It is believed that within five days a agreement uili be permanent peace made, provided Madero can control his forces The armistice awaits only on re- ceipt of Judge Carabajal of formal authorization from Mexico City. The inaurrecto envoys called on Judge Carbajal at his room in an El Paso hotel, prepared to put the armistice into effect immediately, but the fed- eral envoy reminded them that the signing of an armistice was a milli- tary prerogative and not included in Ids' diplomtic instructions. He de- clared, however, that authorization was merelv a matter of form and that either tonight or early tomor- row he Tvould affix his signature to the document.

Diaz Surrenders. MEXICO CITY, May Diaz and Vice-President Corral will WASHINGTCX, May pub- lication today in all of the capitals of the world of the terms of the pro- posed arbitiation treat) with France and Great Britain will, it is declared by leading diplomatists, result in showing just where every nation stands in regard to its desire for peace with the United States With the making public of the terms of the heaty there was also given to the world understanding that any nation that desires a similar arbitration treaty can have it by asking. Interest, however, centers largely in what attitude Japan will take in view of Japan's recent protestations of friendliness with the United States. Unless she opens negotiations for a treaty considerable doubt will be thrown on her sincerity. Secretary Knox has evolved a docu- ment which has received the approval of the president and the other mem- bers of his cabinet, providing that all differences which are internationally justiciable shall be submitted to arbi- tration. It expands the scope of the existing arbitration treaties by elim- inating the exceptions refeiring to "questions of vital interest and na- tional honoi." This elimination is the leal accomplishment of the pro- posed -treaty. German-Japanese Alliance?

WASHINGTON, May de- cision of the United States supreme court dissolving the Stanlard Oil company, handed down from the bench by Chief 'Justice White, is re- garded by public men in Washington as an epoch-making deliverance. Un- doubtedly it is the most important decision affecting the rights and powers of corporations that has been rendered by the highest of judicial tribunals during the one hundred and twenty-eight years of, government under the constitution. As to the tremendous epochal im- portance of the decision all of the great minds are in agreement, not- !withstanding there is evident on all sides confusion and bewilderment as to what the effect of ..he decision may be in its ultimate and varied applica- tions. When time is given to permit of close study and analysis of the voluminous opinion of Chief Justice White, which consumed two hours in delivery, and of the sensational and vigorous dissent of Justice Harlan, there may be a harmonizing of views as to the court's findings but. after hasty and incomplete consideration, there is the widest divergence of views as to whether the supreme court has really pave_d the way for the masiery of the people "over the corporations or whether, as Justice Harlan gloomify infers, the use of the "unreasonable" in the major oplsion, which stands as the decree of the court, furnishes a distressing (Continued on Page Seven.)

In a signed article in the Outlook, Col. Roosevelt today comes out in direct opposition to Taft's general arbitration treaty with Great Britain. He declares the United States should never agiee to arbitrate points of honoi. integrity or through two partonage measures. These were the Gebhart bill to dis- possess the republican state board of public works of all the canal pa- tronage and tarn it over to Chief En- gineer James R.

The West Union members claim that since the Order of Odd Fellows is opposed to the liquor business and bars men en- gaged in it from membership, the grand master has caused embarrass- ment by his support of liquor bills. Huffman, of course, has his defend- ers. He has always been popular 111 the order and his friends say that a for hts it is said that from the smaller is no reason or seeking mere indictment criticizing him removal While many members towns will demand Huffman's retire- ment, there is also likely to be a movement to retaliate on the corn- planing lodges. All this will make the session here of great importance and interest. "The grand lodge will cut the West Cairo Odd Fellows pretty short at their meeting next predicted Frank Foster, former grand master, of Toledo. "Th'e grand lodge ought to throw that lodge out. They have violated one of the very first principles of the order. Huffman hasn't been proved interest to all vessel owners, mashers, and importers and exporters of mer- chandise of whatever character. They are based upon a recent act con- gress, and relate to the entry of ves- sels and the landing and unloading of imported merchandise at night, and, under emergency conditions, on Sun- days and holidays. Every vessel arriving from a foreign port with a cargo which the owner or consignee desires to have discharged after six o' clock p. m. of any busi- ness day, or at any time on a Sunday or holiday, must be provided "with, a special licence for that purpose, to be issued by a collector of customs after a good and sufficient -bond has ueen executed by the' master, owner, agent or the consignee of such vessel's car- go, to save the United States harmless from any loss or liability that may occur or he occasioned by tne grant- ing of such special license.
