warships of the fleet are again in the
hands of .the government. Trains from
the interior have brought back fam

The mutineers did not lack for cer

to the present government, possession
was taken of several small towns
throughout the state, and of which
they are still in possession. Coyame,
in eastern Chihuahua, and San Andres,
San Isidro, Guerrero and MInaca, west
of this city, are reported still in pos
session of the revolutionists. A troop
of 50 soldiers has been sent east to
Coyame, but no news has been received
of them. However, the malls have
been coming through from that point
regularly. One hundred and fifty sol
diers were sent west on the Mexican
North Western on the regular passer
ger train, leaving Mondas, the 21st.

The train from Madera, several hours
behind time, attempted to run through
San Andres without stopping. About
one mile beyond the station a rail had
been taken up by the revolutionists to
prevent the sending out of any more
troops, leaving 15 men and the station
agent at San Andres to warn trains
coming from the west, as they had no
desire to hurt anyone. The train ran
through without stopping and was
"wrecked, but no one hurt.
A prominent American railroad con
tractor, accompanied by the brake
man, went over to the little town of
San Andres, two and a half miles away,
to ask permission to buy food for the
people on the train and also to ask
permission to repair the telegraph line
to Chihuahua, that a train might be
asked for to take the people In. The
leader of the Insurrectos expressed
great regret at the derailment of the
train, gave them breakfast and sent
