Man Banished By Biaz Starts
Trouble In Yucatan,
El Paso, Tex., June 9. The gun
boat Morales, with two battalions of
infantry, reached Progresso, tho prin
cipal seaport of Yucatan, from Vera
Cruz, and the troops were at once
dispatched inland. They were taken
through Mcrlda, tho capital, where
they were loudly cheered showing
that the people of the capital arc
loyal. They can not reach tho sec
tion of dissatisfaction without a hard
march, and this may be delayed from
the fact that Colonel Victor Monten
egro, leader of the rebels, has torn
up the railroad tracks.
The fact that "Colonel Montenegro
is one ot tho rebel leaders gives a
new aspect to the revolt. He was
one of the officers who was banished
from a choice berth In Mexico to
Yucatan for exhibiting a preferenco
for General Itels for vice president
against tho wish of President Diaz,
and It Is said that a number of offi
cers banished with him haye taken
up arms with the insurgents. Maxl
mlllano R. Bonllla, anothor rebel
leader, has been an American refu
gee in Yucatan for many years, and
there Is now a price set upon his
head. Further reports are received
of the sacking of towns throughout
the Interior ot Yucatan.

tricts be brought Into court and
opened so that the vote may be re
counted. The petition has been

Accompanying the wind was a
heavy downpour of rain. The con

prison collections of books in the
United States, is believed to be badly
