A well known American who has
just returned from the portion of the
state of Chihuahua, Mexico, from
which troubles with the insurrection
ists are reported, gives some interest
ing information concerning the pres
ent insurrection and the discontent
preceding it.
-This man, who knows the country
thoroughlyand who is looked upon as

throughout the state of Chihuahua.
San Carlos, opposite Lojlta, Brewster
county, Texas, and all of that vast ter

river pass.
One Town Held by Government.
"The town of Ojnioga, opposite
Presiaio. Tex., is not in the hands of
the insurrectionists because the po
sition has no strategic value, and it is
not an open port ofer.try. It is rather
well guarded by rurales -and mounted
customs officers. Coyame, Cuchillo

the central division
of the National
railways of Mexico.
"West of this point and covering the
northwestern part of the state the in
surrectionists are In undisputed con
trol of the towns along the line of the
Mexico North Western railway. Their
strongholds begin at the Chubiscar
dam three miles west of the city of

"The concentration of insurrection
ary troops is talcing place and they
are being drilled for prompt action, so
state the insurrectos. They also say
that the movements that took place
at Puebla, Torreon, Parral and other
points were simply to force the gov
ernment to distribute its army over a
wide area where the soldier could be
reached by their agents. As it is well j
known that the Mexican army proper
is composed partially of ticket-of-leave
men from the penitentiaries of
the country their loyalty can not be
depended upon by the government.
They have the op tion t to serve in the
army, the penitentiary or go to the
insurrectionists. Outside of that fine
body of men known as the rurales,
Mexico will have no army if the In
surrectionists ajre once allowed to gain
one important and permanent victory.
The government cannot get support
outside of the cities and this only from

wealthy land owners are people close

CORRAL A VERY
SICK OFFICIAL
Mexico City, Mex., Nov. 30. It is
persistently rumored here that Gen.
Bernardo Reyes is to be. recalled from
Europe to become vice president, and
later president of Mexico. This, it is
believed, will quiet the present trouble.
Vice president Corral is a sick man. f
It is stated that his trouble is a very
serious affection of the stomach. He
plans to go to Europe for treatment,
and will soon ask for the necessary
leave.
It is said that Jose Ives Limantour,
finance minister of Mexico, who has
been in Europe for several months,
will retire from the cabinet on his re
turn to this republic Reyes and Li
mantour are bitter enemies, and nei
ther would consent to serve with the
other in the official familjr of Mexico.
Gen. Reyes is now in Paris. He went
to Europe after the Reylsta trouble
last year, at the request of president
Diaz, and presumably on a government
commission. The Reylsta trouble re
sulted from the desire of his followers
to see him made vice president in place
of- Corral. Some political rioting was
indulged in, and at one time serious
trouble semed imminent.
If Reyes is recalled and made vice
president, he will succeed Diaz as pres
ident of Mexico. It has been the gen
eral belief that in the event of Diaz's
j death he would return to Mexico to
battle for the presidency. Reyes has a
strong following and is popular wiin
the army. As minister of war, from
j 1900-to X9jtt2,-he introduced" many army
reforms and increased the pay of offi
cers and men. While he unquestion
ably lost prestige with some of his
followers by not making a fight for
the vice presidency, it is now felt gen
erally that he acted patriotically- in
refusing to promote civil strife.
If Diaz decides to make Reyes ice
president, Corral will resign and Reyes
will be appointed to fill out the term'.
It Is believed that such a course would
end all present unrest in Mexico.
Like Diaz, Reyes has an iron hand.
He showed it in the early days of hia
-administration as governor of Nuevo
Leon. As president of Mexico, he
could be depended on to preserve or-
der.

3IEXICO IS BLAMED FOR
THE SENSATIONAL REPORTS.
Mexico City, Mex., Nov. 30. The sit
uation nas taken another turn in the
capital, so far as the attitude of the
press is concerned, and there is a
tendency to lay the blame of the re
cent sensationalism upon the govern
ment, and to make, in an indirect way,
a charge of censorship of the press
against the authorities. Unable to get
accurate news, the sensational press in
Mexico printed the wildest exaggera-

The Shadow's fcadlus.
Just how far the shadow will
eventually extend is a matter of con
jecture, but now it reaches to the alli
gator pool early In the afternoon and
the sun has not yet reached its south
ern route. Possibly bj- traversing the
realm of known and unknown equa
tions, and finding the value of N, the
exact shadow extension might be as
certained, but after that the ability as
it seems to tourists, of having a sun
that persists In rising and setting at
all points of the compass remains to
be considered.
As a result of the shadow, the win
ter quarters of the alligators are be
coming frigid and Don Crocodillo and
sister are becoming more particular
and less desirable. Accustomed to rise
late in th winter months, they will
hardly have time to take the noonday
sun bath before having to retreat. In
deference to that shaaow.
Vow, it's cold!

Madera, the Pearson lumber town in
Chihuahua was cut off a week from the
world because of the failure, of the
Chihuahua & Pacific trains to run be

and the situation wes rather des
perate. The government was afraid to
operate trains on this line because of
the presence of the Insurgents along
the line who, it was feared, might blow
up the train. It was while attempting
to dislodge the insurrectos that th
regulars were ambushed Sunday.
Telegrams were received in El Paso
