Bryan returned to the United States
this evening from a trip to Cuba and
the Ise of Pines. Mr. Bryan was

Mexico City, Feb. 18.—Fran-
eisco I. Madero has been forced
out of the presidency. He was
arrested at the national palace
shortly after 3 o’clock this after-
noon by General Blanquet.
General Vietoriano Huerta,

Generals Stop Fight.
An agreement between Gener-
als Blanquet and Huerta was
reached last night, but the first
intimation that Blanquet’s men
had of the new role they were to
play, was shortly before the suc-
cessful stroke was made. Blan-
quet drew up his men in order
and delivered a stirring speech.
“This inhumane battle must
end,” he said. “The time has
come when drastic means most
be taken to stop a conflict in
which father is killing son and
brother is fighting against broth-
er ; when noncombatants are
sharing the fate of war—and all
this because of the caprice of one
Blanquet then issued orders for
the arrest of the president and
assigned a detachment to that
