are certain he Is the man who crossed
the foot bridge and that he met and
talked Trith the man on the white
.ben. Pascnal Orozco, on returning to
Juarez about 1 ocloclc, said to an As
sociated Presa reporter that he had not
tact Mr. Hernandez. He said he hail
only been ont riding. "I would be glad
to admit It it I had met ilr. Hernandez,''
said Orozco, "as it would be to my ad
vantage If the minister of fomento had
met me in a conference." Orozco ad
mitted that his ride had taken him to
the vicinity of "peace srove" -which
minister Hernandez said he had visited.
Minister Hernandez is on his way
to the lower Colorado river for an in
spection of the irrigation system,
which Is fed from the Colorado river.
The Mexican minister was here at the
time of the peace conference last
spring when the Maderista army was
encamped in the hills. He was acting
in an unofficial capacity for both sides
as the "go between," as he expresses it.
Being a friend of botn the Madero
leaders and the Diaz leaders, he was
hosen to bring about the preliminary
meeting of representatives of both
side in an effort to restore peace. As
the neutral one he took an important
p.rt in the preliminary negotiations
and was prominent in the affairs lead
ing up to the battle of Juarez and
the unseating of Diaz.
"I have nothing to do with the set
tlement of the Chamizal matter," min
ister Hernandez said. "That comes
under the jurisdiction of the depart
ment of foreign relations and my trip
has nothing to do with that matter."
Senor Hernandez "was oppolnted min
ister of fomento on July $ -of last year
and has been active in the promotion of
the affairs of the office anfl the de
velopment of the lands of the republic.

REBELS REPORTED TO HAVE
DRIVEN' SAXJLXES BACK
Tucson. Ariz.. Aug. 7. Orozco's rebel
forces, according to advices received
here, defeated the government soldiers
under Gens. Sanjines and Velasco at
Sahuaripa and continued their advance
as far as Dadura, Sonora. There they
opened fire on the town, which was de
fended by 25 or 30 federals.
The railroad agent, hiding under the
station, sent out the report of the at
tack, adding that he intended to stay
where he could be comfortable.
The rebels cut the telegraph wire be
tween Ladura and Mina, Sonora, to the
First, Is Cursed; Then Shot
at; Then, When He Fired,
He Is Shot and Robbed.
"Wounded and left for dead by Mex
ican r6bels, Paul Hansan, mining eri
gineer and last year superintendent of
the Santa Eduviges Mining Co., of
Sonora. Mexico, owned by Trenton, X
J., cap'.tal, has just arrived In El Paso,
alive, but badly crippled. He says:
"On June first. I was working my own
claims at San Lorenzo de Cuevas, State
of Chihuahua, in Cerro Chato, and as I
was coming into that town from my
mines at 7.30 p. m.. I met several rebels
on the trail who insulted me in every
possible waj calling me a Gringo dog
and several other opprobrious epi
thets. "I then rode on another quarter of
a mile toward town until I met an
other band of rebels, who held me up
and demanded all I had. I refused to
comply, whereupon one of them pulled
down on me with his rifle and shot
a hole through my hat. He was about
25 feet away. Then I pulled my 45
automatic Colts and fired five shots
and killed one of the Mexicans. Then
all of them, numbering 17 men, set
upon me and fired a number of shots
at me. shooting me through my left
leg and killing my horse. I fell down
and was Insensible, and I guess they
thought me dead. I woke up about
midnight and found myself about half
a mile from town. I also found they
had taken my watch, my pistol and
1600 pesos, the pay roll of the men
working for me.
"I learned that in the town several
parties who had heard of the shoot
ing offered to go out and look for me
and bring me to town, but the jefe
politico, Ysidero Quesada, told them
that Inasmuch as I was only a Gringo
dog, to let me lay out there and die
"However, the better sentiment in
town prevailed and some friends came
and brought me in. I was three week3
without a doctor and suffered terribly.
I finally was brought to Chihuahua
and was sent here by Mr. Letcher,
the American consul there, and consul
Edwards sent me to the hospital here,
and I am now getting well.
"I think it will take six months
to quiet things down there. The most
of the Mexican people are sick or
fighting and are without food.
"The country where I a.m mining
I regard as one of the richest and best
mining districts in the world. You can
not possibly walk over the mountains
for 24 hours without finding some
kind of a mineral vein. It is mostly
silver and there's lots of it."
Death visited the Mormon refugees
Tuesday night for the first time since
the exodus from Mexico. B. H.
AUred, who was living with his family
at 711 Brown street, died suddenly
Tuesday, evening of heart failure. He
was one' of the leading members of the
colonies and was 63 years old. The
funeral services were held Wednesday
afternoon at the temporary home, in
charge of C E. McClellan, councilor to
Junius Romney, stake officer of the
Mexican colonies, who was out -of town
and unable to officiate.
Nothing has yet been heard of the
Mormon men who are expected to ar
rive at the border some place west of
El Paso. They left Colonias Juarez and
Dublan Friday, all armed and mounted
and were en route to the American side,
having abandoned their ranches to the
rebels and looters. The officials of the
church express no concern for the
safety of these men as they say that
they are able to take care of themselves
and, while a brush might occur be
tween them and the rebels under Roque
Gomez or some other leader, they have
no fear for the outcome.
All Colonies Deserted.
All of the Mexican Mormon colonies
In Chihuahua are believed to have been
deserted by the men and they are ex
pected to reach El Paso some time this
week. At the time that the men left
Dublan and Juarez they sent runners
to Colonia Diaz and the mountain col
onies of Chuichupa, Garcir. and Pacheco
to warn the other men to get out.
"While the majority of the men are
expected to leave the colonies estab
lished in the mountains, the officials
say that they would not be surprised
If some established a picket line and
remained to guard their property or
went into the mountains to escape the
rebels. There are about 125 men left
in these colonies, they say. and they
are all armed and have rifles and am
munition cached in the mountains and
horses hidden in the woods, ready for
their use when they decide to leave.
No Informatlbn has been received at
the Mormon- headquarters regarding
the appropriation of $100,000 for the re
lief of the refugees from Mexico. E. E.
Bowman, one of the officials of the
church, says that should this appro
priation be available, it would be used
in caring for the refugees, both Mor
mons and their neighbors, in El Paso,
in paying the transportation of the
aged to Utah and Arizona points and In
paying for the transportation of all the
colonists when they came out of Mex
ico and for their return passage. The
government continues to issue rations
to the refugees in El Paso and there
is no expectation that this source of
food supply will bo cut off because of
lack df funds for that purpose.
Want to Go Back- "
""We will go Back to Mexico' just asr
soon as conditions will permit." Mr.
Bowman said. The Mexican igovern
ment could make it possible for us to
return soon by straightening out af
fairs in the colonies, but whether this
will be done or not. we cannot tell. Un
til such a time as conditions are suf
ficiently settled to permit us to return,
we will remain in El Paso. Only a few
of the- aged and infirm are being sent
out now and the remainder of the refu
gees will probably remain here in the
camps and Vacant houses until the re
turn is ordered."

Men in Chihuahua Occu
pied by Federals.
American railroad men In El Paso,
who were formerly employed on the
Chihuahua division of the Mexican
Central, are lamenting the loss of
their club rooms and quarters In Chi
huahua, which have been taken by the
federal troops and used for stables in
which to keep their horses. The rail
road men had equipped a library for
the use of the men while off duty in
Chihuahua. A restaurant has been in
stalled in this library and the books
destroyed or carried away. The houses
where the officials of the road lived
near the Chihuahua station have been
taken by the officers of the federal
army and the horses are pastured in
the front yards of the houses.

Mexico Treating With the
Southern Rebel Leader
Mexico City. Mex., Aug. 7. Represen-
tatives of the government will meet
Kmlliano Zapata, tne reDei leaaer, ai
El Kllguero. llorelos, tomorrow, to dis
cuss measures aiming at peace in the
southern part of the republic
Zapata has declared he would consid
er no peajie proposition unless it con
tained Madero's resignation, but the
government has proceded with plans
for the conference and the cabinet has
been instructed to obtain an armistice
if possible. Then thev will attempt to
induce Zapata to send his representa
tives before a committee of the land
owners of jrorclos and state his de
mands. "Whether the commission will con
sider the resignation of Madero Is
highly improbable, but it is felt that
once the peace conference is launched,
terms can be made that do not include
such provision -since the principal com
plaint of the Zapatistas has been that
of the ownership of the lands. It is
assumed that the government is pre
pared to meet them part way in a plan
of establishing peace.

Mrs. Inez Salazar, wife of Gen. Sala

to El Paso, accompanied by her chil

a day or two on a matter of business,
taking her oldest son with her. and
leaving the two children with neighbors.
Says His Nominaation Is
Deserved; Task on Bor
der a Delicate One.
Washington, D. C. Aug. 7. The pro
motion of CoL E. Z. Steever to be a
brigadier general, is generally ap
plauded by the eastern press. The New
York Herald says editorially.
"President Taft's nomination of CoL
Edgar Z. Steever to be a brigadier gen
eral is a deserved recommendation of
a soldier, who in his long career, has
served with distinction, and whose task
during the last two years on the turbu
lent Mexican border, has called for
qualities of judgment, tact and re
straint seldom found in combination.
Col. Steever's task of guarding United
States territory and at the same time
curbing those heads on both sides of
the line who have been seeking to pro
mote discord, has been a delicate one.
His promotion will be gratifying to all
those who have observed his level head
San Antonlans Glad.
San Antonio, Tex.. Aug. 7. A great,
big part of the army in the southwest,
and probably all over the country, for
that matter, hopes when the national
senate Is in session Thursday It will
lose no time in confirming the nomina
tion of CoL E. Z. Steever for a brigadier
It is not expected the senate will
hold up the nomination of Col. Steever,
as he is thoroughly familiar with the
border situation in Texas, and has thus
far handled a delicate matter with the
finesse of a diplomat. "When the late
Gen. J. "W. Duncan commanded the de
partment he saw fit to permit CoL Stee
ver to handle the border matters In
the western part of the state and placed
every confidence In his ability to grasp
the situation regardless of how acute
it might have become.
That the war department officials
took cognizance of CoL Steever's fine
judgment in neutrality and other mat
ters has been evidenced on several oc
casions, and especially so some weeks
ago, when his regiment, the Fourth
cavalry, changed station and the colonel
was ordered to remain at El Paso. His
coming to San Antonio as the com
manding officer of the department of
Texas will meet with wide approval in
