MANUEL SARABIA IS TAKEN
WANTED TO SEE FRIENDS;
'NABBED BY OFFICERS
Charged with Conspiracy on Warrant
from Arizona Believed to Be
Based on Federal ln>
With hopes of securing a pass Into the
county jail to see his friends and to
brighten their loneliness with words of
cheer, Manuel Barabla, a Mexican, one of
the leaders of the liberal praty In his
native land, was yesterday placed under
arrest by a,deputy United States marshal,
charged with conspiracy.
Sarabla had gone to the marshal's of
fice to apply for a pass to the Jail, his
daily custom for weeks. In the Jail are
confined the four Mexicans who have tak
en a prominent part in the building up of
the liberal party in their country—Magon,
Rivera, Vlllaieal and De Lara—anfl Bara
bia has made it a practice to visit them
frequently, hoping by his presence and
comforting words to make their lot a llt
tle more pleasant and to buoy up their
spirits with assurances that their friends
were working unceasingly in their causa.
The arrest was made on a warrant from
Arizona, believed to have been based on a
federal Indictment returned In the second
territorial district and charging violation
of the neutrality laws of the United
States. These charges are denied by Sa
rabia, who declares he took no part in
any of the activities which may have
taken place In Arizona against the ruling
government of Mexico. It is admitted
that he was a member of the junta at St.
Louis and was a contributor to the organ
of that commute, Regeneration.
Once Before Arrested
This Is not Sarabia's first experience
with Arizona officials. Once before he
has occupied a cell In the jail at Douglas,
where he was imprisoned on a request of
the Mexican government. No speclllc
charge. It Is said, was made against the
young man at that time, and his arrest
was the subject of much adverse com
ment, which was changed Into the most
earnest protest when, on the night of
June 30, Sarabla was taken from the jail,
hurried Into an automobile and driven
rapidly across the border Into Mexican
Mexican officials were in waiting for
him, and he was thrown Into prison,
where he remained eight days. Mean
while the nnger of the citizens of Doug
las became greater, and the hue and cry
against what was regarded by many as
as act of unparalleled injustice became so
great thnt the officials of the government
at Washington were compelled to inter
cede in behalf of the prisoner. Attorney
General Bonaparte, through the American
embassy at Mexico City, demanded the
leturn forthwith of Sarabla, and this de
mand was quickly complied with.
Sarabia's return to Douglas was the Rig
nal for general rejoicing, and he was
irrpptert with open arms by the citizens.
A grand jury Investigation followed anl
a number of officers were Indicted,
charged with bring parties to the kid
naping, but the charges wore later dis
missed. The Mexican consul at Douglaj.
however, was recalled by his government,
and as he Is known to have been promi
nent in engineering the arrest of Barahla
and suspected of complicity In the kid
naping, his recall was regarded as a dis
tinct mark of disapproval on the part of
the government at Washington.
Cousin In Prison
Sarabla later went to St. Louis, and
thence came to Los Angeles, where he has
lived since with a friend at 320 California
street. At the time he was declared to
have conspired against his government In
Arizona Sarabla Is said to have been In
St. Louis, and the men whose names are
mentioned as being associated with him
at the time are declared to have been out
side Arizona. Rivera was also In St.
Louis and Magon was in Canada^vlsltlng
a brother. De Lara was in California and
Vlllareal was in Mexico.
Incarcerated in a cell of one of the
worst prisons in Mexico there lies today
a cousin of Manuel Sarabia, a leader or
the liberal party. This cousin is Juan
Sarabia, and he will have spent one year
in prison in February. The prison is
callad Ban Juan de Ulna, and Is described
as a placo where no man can live more
than five years. Seven years was the
sentence Imposed on Juan Sarabia, a sen
tence which is said practically to mean
death. His offense, say his friends, con
sisted in associating himself with a po
litical party in Mexico other than the
party of which Portirlo Diaz is the head.
