Silvestro Terrazas, who aas been secretary
of State :'or Chihauhau, a close
friend of Chao, also was removed and '
has been succeeded by lAugustin
Labanstadt, formerly inspector of police.
Chao and Terrazas, who is not connected
with the rich federal family
of that name, are regarded as being
closely aligned wi h Gen. Carranza,
while 'heir successors are friends of j
Constitutionalist representatives \ j
here deny that t'..e removal of Chao' |
indicated a strained relati::i between 1 |
