I PLAN TO CUT OFF
Maderistas .Would Blow Up
Bridges Near Tampico
San Luis Potosi, Mex., March 28. A
Maderista plan to tie up the National
Railways of Mexico by cutting off the
supply of fuel oil has been discovered
here. Several arrests haVe been made.
The plan contemplated the blowing
up of bridges on themountain division
between this city and Tampico, and
on the Tampico-Monterey line. Fuel
oil is supplied the National Railways
from Ebano, the station of the Mexi
can Petroleum company, 40 kilometers
"west of Tampicb. The destruction of
the bridges as planned would stop oil
shipments and force a general suspen
sion of traffic.
The government merger system is
using from 6000 to 8000 barrels of fuel
oil daily. It has only a limited num
ber of coal burners, and it would re
quire some time to convert oil burning
locomotives into coal burners. It la
beliteved the plan also contemplated
cutting off coal suplies from the Coa
huila fields. v.
Guards have been placed at the prin
cipal bridges on the- San Luis Potosi
