MEXICO CITY, April 25. (By The
Associated Press). Tho developments
of the last two weeks resulting from
the Sonora revolutionary activities
show that the central government is
preparing to encircle the rebellious
state with a steel ring, meanwhile
cruBhiug sporadic outbreaks in other
paits of the republic with a strong
A summary of the situation since
! the northern state broke with the Car
1 ranza administration has been issued
by the war department officials. The
long list of professions of adhesion to
tho Carranza government from vir
tually every state oxecutive and mil
itary leader except those who have
openly Joined the Sonora revolution
ists, would seem to indicate that the
republic as a whole Is solidly support
ing tho present government.
Aside from the Sonora state gov-
havo repudlatod tho present adminis
tration, these being General Enrique
lEntrada, in the state of Zacatecas and
I General Oritz Rubio, in the state of
Michoacan. Both of these executives,
however, have failed to attract any
great following and are being pursued,
by loyal forces.
Estrada Cited For Treason.
The state legislature in Zacateacs
jhas repudiated the attitude of Estrada
'and cited him for treason, whllo tho
Michoacan legislature has unsoated
Oritz Rublo and named Primo Sen-ante
Mercadm as his successor.
General Ramon Iturbe, governor of
Sialoa, has protested his loyt.lty and
ii using what forces are available to
check the Incursions of the Sonora
troops into Sinaloa.
Tho present whereabouts of General
Alvaro Obregon, former war minister,
who Is slated for the presidency of
Mexico, by the Sonora rebels, and Gen.
Benjamin Hill, his campaign leader, Is
Obregon and Hill in Hiding.
The general belief is that both the
rebel leaders who left Mexico City
two weeks ago upon receipt of reliable
advices that Sonora had rebelled, fled
toward the Pacific coast by way of
Michoacan. Apparently General Hill
remained behind Obregon, because, In

officials are satisfied that the scheme

Central Government Safe.
The crushing defeat inflicted April
21 by General Francisco Murguia's
troops upon tho rebels' forces headed
by General Arnulfo Gomez, which at
tacked the Tuxpam oil center, climin
ated the only danger to tho central
government outside of Sonora, accord
ing to the war department. Gomez,
who with about seven hundred Yaqul
Indians Joined forces with General
Manuel Pelaez. Is said to have suffer
ed about 300 casualties, failing to en
ter the city and was forced to retreat
to the Jungle.
The arrival at Mexico City of Gen.
Maycotte, expected within a few days,
it is believed, will clear up the situa
tion In the state of Guerrero, whero
press reports declare Maycottc's for
ces followed Colonel Francisco Flgu
eroa, governor of that state, in rebel
lion. Political Situation in Background.
While the political situation has
been driven entirely into the back
ground by the Sonora revolt, the afc
titude assumed by the presidential can
didates has been tho subject of con
gratulatory editorials by the papors
supporting the government. Both
Ygnaclo Bonillas, who is a native of
Sonora, and General Pablo Gonzales
have denounced Sonora's action and re
iterated their loyalty to the constitut
ed government. Both Bonillas and
Gonzalos limited their activities to
press statements until April 23 when
Gonzales held a three hours' confer
ence with President Carranza.
Unconfirmed reports after the Gon-zales-Carranza
conference wero to the
effect that Gonzales was about to ac
cept the portfolio of wnr minister or
tako the field at the head of a otrong
army. A significant feature of the
published lists of loyalty professions!
is tho inclusions of many generals!
who formerly operated under General
Gonzales in Central Mexico.

ponement o the presidential elections,

LuIg Cabrera, secretary of the treas
ury, has been quoted as statins that
a postponement at this time is inad
visable. What tho government's plans are
for the military conquest of Sonora
havo not been divulged. General Man
,uol Dieguez heads tha forces destined
jfor Sonora under the direct orders of
General Candido Aguilar, who has
been recalled Into active service, is at
Vera Cruz organizing p. strong column.
Wliile tho belief Is that tho govern
ment will attempt tho subjugntion of
Sonora by forces advancing from Cas
Grandes, Chihuahua, another army
by way of Sinaloa, and by sea bv way
of Guayamas, uncertainty provails re
garding the possibility of an attack
from the north, since the foreign of
fice has issued a denial that the Mex
ican government asked the permission
of the United States to transport
troops through American territory.

The war department, according to
tho published statement, considers Ob

Benjamin Hill as belonging to the mil
itary forces, which brings them within
tho score of a drumhead court martial
on charges of rebellion and treason
and makes the death sentence pos
sible. The Vera Cruz legislature hus
already declared all campaigning for
the election of Obregon treasonable.
