MftOFRU Diaz Takes Oath Eighth Time As Sij!Cfti LOSS
Towns Along Line of Chi
huahua and Pacific Said to
Be in Their Hands.
It is certain' from all reports re
ceived, from reliable sources, that the
whole section povered by the Mexico
North "Western division between the
city of Chihuahua and Madera is in
the hands of insurrectionary forces.
The first train of a week from Madera
arrived in Chihuahua "Wednesday,
bringing news of the movements of the
forces. Since the battle itear Chihua
hua Sunday no move has been made by
either side, but the lull appears only to
be the wait -for federal troops. In the
meantime the insurrectos are drilling
on the table lands, and picking men to
handle the rifles in their possession.
The district in arms, but quite or
derly and well governed, lies along the
North Western from a short distance
below the city of Chihuahua, wiere the
hills begin, to Madera, the terminal of
the road. , At La Junta, where the road
makes a detour,20 soldiers are -neld
captive. The only federal troops in the
district are at Guerrero., which is sooii
to be the scene of fighting. They num
ber 63 men. "Wednesday morning a
force of nearly 200 insurrectos departed
j from Madera with intent of capturing
j Guerrero, which lies off the road many
miles from the railroad.
Soldiers Reported Lost.
Many reports have reached El Paso of
th loss of a detachment of soldiers
sent into this territory. Only rour of
the men returned to the city. They
could not tell Wnether their, fellows had
been killed, captured or deserted, it
is said. Since the battle of Sunday, the
federal troops have made no sally Into1
the territory in arms.
Perfect order is reported as existing
in the district and every indication is
that the officers in charge of. the in
surrectory forces are practical men. No
Americans have been molested. As the
result of conference with representa
tives from the unidentified commander
of the insurrectos, the Mexico North
"Western has been permitted to run lta
trains to and from Chihuahua.
Americans Hot Molested.
A. S. Howren engineer of mainte
nance of way for txje North "Western,
arrived in El Paso Thursday morning.
"While making no comment on condi-
ti0ns generally, he said:
"We ran some freight trains Tues

but no harm was done. The first pas

That the trouble in Mexico is not half

merly lived in El' Paso, but Is now
connected with the Santa Barbara Min

"Xo doubt you would like to know
something about the revolt.- It is not
half as bad as represented.
"Here everything is quiet, everybody
is working and I think everything will
be again normal in a day or two.
"The train has not been arriving
regularly on account of one of the en

main line for the moving or troops,
which, unless the matter really gets
serious, will cease.
""If things do take a turn, I will
