an interview saying that "Diaz was an
honest man." "I consider no man hon

force, holds it by force, and is not a
leader by republican selection."
A rumor of the disappearance of
Juan X. Medina, who a few months ago
left Juarez on account' of political rea

Sananea, Son., Mex., Nov. 23. The
day of promised trouble, according to
the American press, passed the same as
any other day does in this busy mining
camp. Instead of riots, bloodshed,
panic, there was not the slightest rip
ple of trouble to be noted.
The remarkable part of the day was
that not one arrest was made which
could be laid against the anti-Diaz fol
lowers. There were also very few
cases of drunkenness to be seen on
the streets. All the stores were order
ed closed, with the exception of butcher
shops, saloons, etc. As the Chinese

ZACATEOAS SAYS -

Because the federal government is

effect of the revolution in the south.
Commercial messages received in
Juarez Tuesday and Wednesday had
been delayedfrom 12 to 24 hours. The
only message received regarding the
fighting told that which already had
been learned, that the reports of dis
order in Zacatecas were absolutely
false. It was a message from Manual

From a thoroughly reliable -source
it is learned that everything is quiet

the state of Coahuila, and Nuevo La

ways of Mexico and the territory be
tween Victoria on the Tampico 'hna
and west to Torreon.
One effect of the rumors of overt
acts by the revolutionists at points
throughout the republic is to prevent
persons going to Mexico. Laredo ho
tels and boarding houses are filled
with persons who had started to Mex
ico from the United States, but who
on hearing the alarming reports in
circulation, considered it desirable to
await more settled conditions.
MADERO CUTS A FEDERAL
WIRE AND IS LOCATED
San Antonio, Tex., Nov. 23. Fran
cisco I. Madero has reached a point
between Monterey and Torreon at the
head of a considerable force.
Telegraphers with him cut in on the
Mexican International wires and asked
about the movement of Mexican fed
eral troops. Thus his whereabouts
verp learned, according to reports.
Albino Flores, who guided Madero
across the border, is being detained
by Robert W. Dowe, United States
collector of customs at Eagle Pass.
It can be said on what is considered
good authority, that the Mexican gov
ernment has a cordon of troops ex
tending from a point below Laredo to
Colombia, 260 miles upon the Rio
Grande on the Mexican side. The
troops have been instructed to keep
a close watch for Madero, who is be

Col. Kosterlitsky with the main

dangerous point because of the chain
of mountains which crosses the bor
der there, giving smugglers an op
portunity' to evade detection.
The Mexican authorities have enlist
ed American riders with horses to
serve as line guards in the border pa
trol. They will be paid $20, Mexican,
per day, and the high pay is tempting
more Americans to offer their services.
