According to information given by the private secretary of President Huerta the dis covery of a letter in the National Pal lace yesterday 'foiled a plot by the members of the presidential body guard to assiassnatc Huerta last night. The secretary said the government had the names of persons who paid mem bers of the bodyguard a huge sum ot kill Huerta. "No arrests have been made so far," he added, "but a full investigation is being conducted ' with probably will result in arrests of prominent Madcr ists and a ho of those who took blood Itmiii... " A cabled report of the assassination : 'Was published by some news ! here today, including a de scription of the midnight scene in which officers, crossing their swords over Madcro's grave, swore to avenge the martyr's death.

A large proportion of the forces intended for the Sonora campaign will be moved westward from Casas Grandes through the Mormon colonies.

An echo of ! the action begun earlier in the month by Richmond liquor dealers to secure relief from the operation of the Webb Kenyon act, as applied to shipments destined for South Carolina, came from Washington yesterday in the form of a statement credited to ' Attorney, General McReynolds, to the effect that should the Richomnd dealers renew the fight the Department of Justice will take a hand. Such a statement, it is reported,' was made by Attorney-General McReynolds jfb Congressman E. Y. Webb, of North Carolina, co-author of the new national liquor act. Mr. Webb brought the re cent action of the Richmond dealers to the attention of the Attorney-Gen eral, who is it said, will intervene in the first case that is brought chal lenging the operation of the Webb Kcnyon law in a ny State.

Washington, March 20. In an officia statement o policy today Secretary of War Garrison declared in favor of im mediate preparation of the military forces of the United States, to meet any emergency, holding a discussion of dis armament by international agreement to be entirely out of place in the con sideration of what the United States governement should do to meet existing conditions. The secretary proposed re tention of the regular array at its pres ent strength, improvement of the na tional guard and creation of a 'reserve. Declaring that be was not urging militarism, Mr Garrison said the leading men in the United States army do not advocate militarism, which means the existence of a large standing army, compact, but thoroughly effi cient army. The most rabid anti-militarists, he said, could not seriously suggest that Pittsburgh Physician After Ex hustive Tests Says There Is No Longer Any Doubt.

Alexander Brown & Sons, in discussing it, said: "No one who knows the President of who has follocwd closely his public utterances and acts will be surprised at the stand he has taken on this ques tion. It is an issue in which a slight misstep now might lead to awkward and disagreeable complications here after. But he has met the question boldly and, I think, properly, and has made his views known in a logical and torilcetul way that cannot be mis understood. It can be taken as a dogma of his administration, I think that under his rule there will be no partnership, quasi or otherwise, be tween the Government and private banking institutions. "That is what the sanction of the Administration at Washington would have meant and President Wilson told the bankers he would stand behind them in making this deal with China. It would have placed this country, in a position which might have greatjjj embarrassesd it in some future negotia tion with the Chinese Government. We could not have been free to act in all matters if we occupied the po sition of having given a quasi guar antee to Chinas debt. this would make us in a measure responsible for the payment of the interest and prin ciapl to those of our ownpeople who may have invested in the securities on the strength of the Gonvcrnment's sanction. "It tST hardly worth while to di&cuss "where this might lead,, jfltheJiututc dealings f the banketp with; Chinsa. They might seek concessions here and there to their own advantage and may be not at all times forthe best develop nient of that country. These privileges might not always meet with the ap proval of the Chinese, who may go to the p'oint of protesting vigorously. Then what would be our position? The President has clearly seen all these possiblities and has met them like a patriot and a statesman. His act has my hearty approval, i am more Convinced now than ever that the affairs of State are in safe and judiciaus'hands." , Senator Simmons, who arrrived in the city Friday night for a few days at home, was warmly greeted on all sides yesterday, his many friends here taking advantage of the opportunity to congratulate him'on his appoint ment to the chairmanship of the most important committee of the. Senate, the Finance Committee, which will have charge of the tariff legislation in the upper House of Congress. Senator Simmons is averse to dis cussing the honors that have come his way or any of the circumstances under which they were received, friends 'of his here who have been thoroughly posted on the progress of events in Washington say that there was never any doubt that the chairmanship of the Finance Committeee would be bestowed on Senator Simmons despite all the gossip indulged in by some'news paper correspondents who tried to make it appear that he was having a hard fight to win the plaice. One of the stoties published con cerning the matter was that Senators Simmons was only able to save him self from being beaten by deserting the standard of Senator Martin of Washington, March 22. Storms of cyclonicintensity last night devastat ed sections of many States cast of the Mississippi river, from Michigan to the Gulf, and even sweeping Missouri, and Arkansas, with a loss of 75 or more lives, hundreds of persons injured and property damage running into the millions. Twenty-nine residents of Lower Peach Tree, on the Alabama river, in Alabama, are known to have been killed and the town was practically wiped out. Asccording to a report from Thrmas ville, Ala., 19 persons lost their lives there. Hundreds of other persons were bad ly injured, industrial plants so badly damaged as to throw 1,500 or 2,000 workmen out of employment, and ex tensive damage to other property was done in Alabama. Not less than five persons were killed and more than 50 injured in Poplar Bluff, Mo., with one killed and 25 injured at Hoxie, Ark.
