Mexico City, Feb. IS A rumor was
current here tonight that President
Madero had been shot. Great excite
ment prevailed following the spread of
the rumor, but it could not be confirmed.
Madero is not at the palace, but it is
believed to be possible that he is on the
firing line with General Huerta, who is
in charge of the Federal troops.
The Senate committee called at the
national palace late today to demand
his resignation. He was not there,
having disappeared sometime previously-

lumaDly to New Bern and had only
hirty cents remaining.
Being illiterate he was unable to
earl the destination printed on the

Several members of the committee
in charge ol the erection of a monu
ment in this city to the De.Graffenried
Colony met at the home of R. A. Nunn
last evening tor the purpose of con
ferring upon the subject with Judge
O. H. Allen of Kinston.
A few months ago, during the time

At that time Judge Allen understood
:hat the nemorial was to be erected

sonallv. and cited several instance In
which his conduct was not all that it
should have been.
Last eveninir fude Allen ct.-itpr!
that since learning that the memorial
was to be erected not to Baron De
Graffenried alone but to his colony
as a whole, he was heartily in favor ol
the movement and earn stly hoped
that it would prove to be a complete
susccess. Judge Allen is well read in
the history of the early settlement ol
this country and is considered to be an
authority upon the subject. He stated
that De Graffenried had
colonists whom he brougnt here in an
ungauant manner and had taken ad
vantage of them in everv wav rnsnible
and personally he derserved little
credit for what had been acconvplishe I.
It is Judge Allen s opinion that the
citizens of New Bern should he assisted
in me woric oi erecting this; memorial
by the citizens of Onslow! .Pender
Duplin, Jones, Lenoir and Wayne
:ounties for he has found unmistakable
evidence that many of the members nf
the colony brought here by De Giaffen
ried moved to those places and traces
of them can yet be found.
Judge Allen is heartily in favor of
(the erection of this memorial and said
that he thought it would be a fitting
tribute to the memory of the men and
women who underwent untold hardships
and many times faced death in order
to make the settlement of New Bern
i permanent one.
Contibutions to the memorial fund
are coming in, although slowly at this
time and the amount of subscriptions
and donations in the hands of S. M.
Brinson, County Superintendent of
Public Schools, who is treasurer- of the
fund, is very encouraging.- Within
a few weeks the active campaign for
funds to bp used in its erection will be
resumed and it is hoped that the full
amount necessary to erect the memorial
will be assured at that time.
