CUSTOM HOUSE IS
PUT INTO SHAPE
Juarez is an active city aside from
the festivities. Thursday found a
sudden resumptioof business. Shops
long closed were opened, and federal
and civic offices were suddenly oc
cupied with" former office holders.
Most important from a commercial
point of view Is the opening for traf
fic of the Mexico North Western rail
way, the road which runs over a cir
cuitous route from Juarez to Chihua
hua city through the rich iarmlng'and
mining districts and the lumbering
sections around Pearson and Madera.
Both passenger and freight traffic on
the Pearson road reopened Thursday.
Trains In Daylight
Temporarily the daylight schedule
adopted during the revolutionary times
will be in vogue. Passenger trains
will leave the union station in El
Paso at 7:05 a. m., stopping over tho
night at Madera, and arriving in
Chihuahua, at 3 p. m. of the next day.
Returning, the trains will leave Chihua
hua at'l:30 p. m. and arrive In El Paso
at 7:50 p. m., making the stopover at
Madera. The first train departed from
El Paso Thursday morning.

On Thursday morning's train the
coaches were packed to their fullest
capacity -with Americans wno have
been refugees In El Paso since the
rebel troubles took place in the vicin
ity which the North Western traverses.
They were' mostly employes of the
Pearson company's plants and business
men. There will be many hundreds
of pe&ple returning to the Galeana
district during the next few days
over this road.

plenty of fuel, as It has been obtain
ing all fuel by way of Torreon and
likewise has been shipping bullion and
ore by that route.
Repairing Telegraph Line.
Repairs will be under way soon on
the lines of the federal telegraph,
which run over the entire district
south of Juarez. The wires are cut
in many places, but there is a line as
far as Villa Ahumada on the Mexican
Central railway. The Juarez office of
the government owned telegraph will
be opened at once In the customs
house' building. The old force will
be in charge.
Customs llouxe a "Sight."
The customs house is a "sight" On
their hasty exit the rebels emptied
desks strewing Innumerable letters
and records over the floors of the spa
cious building. A force of clerks Is
engaged in sorting these records.
Most of the customs records were de
stroyed by the rebels, but duplicates are
in the hands of the Mexican consul at
El Paso. Pero Malse, the former
deputy collector of customs, will be

After Fighting His
General Tellez Is Uiven Koses
Federal Command oi
ARCHING federals rilled the
streets of Juarez Wednesday
afternoon for the review of
the troops under command of Gen.
Joaquin Tellez. The crowds of Juarez
citizens, enlarged by a crowd from El
Paso, lined the principal streets and
watched the passing show without a
sign of enthusiasm or a cheer for the
men who have been fighting their way
from tbe south toward the border. This
lack of enthusiasm was noticeable
every place the federals appeared.
The interest taken in their maneu
vers and movements was that of idle
curiosity and the spectacle of march
ing troops failed to arouse the people
to any concerted show of patriotism.
Wreath of Roin For Tcllex.
The review was preceded by a dem
onstration. In honor of the troops, at
the Benito Juarez monument, where
speeches were made welcoming the
federals to the border town, and where
little girls. In white dresses and car
rying tricolored flags, sang patriotic
songs. But it was the military that
was the big attraction. When a body
of troops marched within a Mock of
the monument the crowd would rush
toward them, neglecting the speakers,
who were addressing the crowds from
the monument steps. Sounds of trum
pet calls could be heard from the bar
racks and from the rear of the custom
house where the artillery Is quartered.
The parade to the monument started
at four oclock and was headed by Gen.
Tellez and his brigade band. Gen. Tel
lez is a man past middle 'age, grizzled
by the campaigns in the south and of
the true Mexican fighting type. He

Washington, D. C, Aug. 22. Two
Americans are reported to have been
deliberately murdered in the massacre
of NIcaraguan loyal troops by the rebels
at Leon on August 19. One was said
to be Harvey Dodd ,of Kosciusko, Miss.;
the other a man named Phillips. The
two men had been wounded and were
seeking refuge in a hospital, accord

Dodd and Phillips were saiq to have

The killing of Dodd and Phillips,

Rebels Are Taking Towns.
A. delayed dispatch from Corlnto to

between Leon and Chlnandaga. They
are reported to have confiscated a large
plantation and a distillery containing
5,000,000 worth of alcohol.
With the arrival of additional United

The massacre of .the loyal NIcara

The rebels refused quarter and anni

except three or four.
Today's early advices to the state
department are that the situation is
critical. Though the American "ma
