FEAR TROUBLE IN
Washington, D. C, Nov. 29.
Conditions in Mexico are rap
idly approaching a normal state
and the insurrectionary dis
turbances, are believed to be
confined to the state of Chi
huahua, according to a tele
gram to the state department
today from ambassador Wilson.
San Diego , Cal., Nov
conferences between Lieut, governor
Laroque, of Lower California, and se
nor Lozano, Mexican consul at Los
Angeles, have been held in San Diego
within the last day or two and this, in
connection with the circulation9 of the
Mexican revolutionary journal here
and at Tia .Tuana, and the presence of
scores of strange and apparently
wealtny Mexicans in the city is believed
to indicate trouble for the Mexican of
ficials In Lower California. The bor
der is being closely watched.
The San Diego police have rounded
up and searched more than a score of
Mexicans, alleged suspicious charac
ters, all of whom were armed.
Travelers from the west coast of
Mexico say the troops are mobilized at
Mazatlan and Guaymas, as well as Cu
Jiacan. the capital of Sinaloa, and Her
mosillo, capital of Sonora.
i.SAYS THERE'S A
REAL HOT TIME
T offov "P-i.-,--. l-.;i,l,., T
j dares That "Hell Has
I - Broken Loose'
"Hell has broken loose west of here,"
This declaration is jnade in a letter
from a prominent American in Chihua
"hua who has been in the thick of the
fight at San Andres and, tells of the
trouble near Chihuahua Sunday. Re
ferring to this last he says:
"Every man, woman and child from
Temosachic to Chihuahua is up in arms.
The peqple -in Chihuahua have no idea
how strong the insurrectionists are. It
will take 20 0C troops 60 days to clean
them out of the canyons, where they
are strongly entrenched near San An
dres. "Friday 175 soldiers w;ere sent out
there and all but four .of them were
killed when ambushed by the insurrec
tos. They were on their way to Guer
rero. "No trains have run in from Minaca
since Tuesday and none is expected for
a week. There are Americans there
but none of them "have been molested.
Last Monday I was in th train t
which was fired on near San Andres.
For five minute it rained bullets. Four
soldiers were killed and four injured.
The bullets of the insurrectos poured
into the passenger coaches, killing
three Mexican women and one child
and injuring a number of old men. On
the return trip, the train was wrecked
but the leader of the insurrectos was
very kind. He permitted us to telegraph
to Chihuahua for aid and a relief train
came out from Chihuahua in 10 hours
and took the passengers back. TVe
wanted food and the insurrectos gave
us bacon, beans and coffee without su
gar. The engineer was almost killed
when the train was wrecked but es
caped as did all the passengers. The
captain of the insurrectos expressed re
gret that the train had been wrecked
and granted permission to repaii the
tracks. His men helped us in an at
tempt to get the cars back on the track
but we could not do so. "
"Saturday night 700 infantry left Chi
huahua for the scene of the conflict,
Sunday afternoon 350 cavalrymen went
out to a point about six kilometers
west of here and about 3 oclock -fre
hearJ cannon booming and the rattle
of musketry. Five or six riderless
horses returned to Chihuahua and mes
sengers sent out from here have failed
to return A tvn irnnln!il nf rtmi c-l
diers was brought into Chihuahua Sun- I
day atternoon. I do not know how
many -were brought in but the wagon
was filled with dead men. Reinforce
ments left here Sunday morning and
more will go tomorrow.
NOT A REVOLUTION
DECLARES A PRIEST
Jesuit Father, Just Back
From Mexico. Declares
Trouble ISTot Serious.
Bisbee, Ariz., Nov. 29. Rev. father
Tgnacio, a Spanish Jesuit, who passed
through Bisbee and who has been on a
religious mission in Mexico and trav
eled through the district which was j
reported to be In the hands of the In
surrectionists, strongly denies the
news of the insurrectos progress. He
states that his work has brought him
in toucii witn piopie ol every ciass
in many parts of Mexico, Including
those cities which were believed cap
tured by the Madero partisans, and he
positively asserts that there is not such
a spirit of hostility toward the pres
ent government as to cause an appeal
to arms and a revolution in the true
sense of the word.
The Jesuit concluded by character
izing the present trouble as "a local
disturbance brought about by malcon
tents, a class of people which exist
in every nation," and by saying that
he is convinced that Mexico of v today
is far enough along in the way df civ
ilization not to permit civil Avar or give
rise to any revolution at any tim, be
fore or after the death of Diaz. :
