Gen. Aubert Sends Reinforc ements to Casas Grandes to
Aid Gen. Rabago Mormon Colonists Returning
Here Report Fighting in Casas Grandes Satur
day Night and on Sunday They Fear the
Confiscation of Their Homes There.
Rebels Sunday took Ascension, a town
in the Mormon colony district, south
west of Juarez, according to advices re
ceived in Juarez last night. Rebels also
threaten to attack Casas Grandes, the
principal town on the Mexico North
"Western railway in the same district.
Two troop trains were rushed from
Juarez by Gen. Tnicy Aubert Sunday to
reenforce the federals at Casas Grandes
under Gen. Antonio Rabago.
There are many Americans in the en
tire district, both Mormon settlers and
Americans employed in the railway,
mills and mines. No particulars of the
fichtintr at Ascension, which is off the
railway line, have been received here.
"While the two troop trains bearing
200 infantry were en route to Casas
Grandes, Gen. Aubert received a mes
sage from Gen. Rabago, saying that no
reinforcements were needed. However,
the troop trains were not brought back
to Juarez, but arrived early today at
Casas Grandes. It, is believed that Ra-
bairo resented any assistance from Au
bert. who had received other appeals
for aid from Casas Grandes.
This makes the Casas Grandes garri
son number about 600 men. Rebel
agents claim, that 500 and 600 rebels
are in the entire district, and it Is con
sidered doubtful if an attack will be
attempted, as there is also artillery de
fending the town.
Salazar Back at Work. .
Gen. Inez Salazar is in command of
rebel forces operating in the Casas
Grandes district He was in Los An
geles. But failing to be arrested in
the United States as have most -of the
Sonora rebel leaders, he left Los An
gles. At a point on the Arizona border
he reentered Mexico. Today he Is re
organizing the rebels about Casas
Grandes, who recently moved into Chi
huahua from Sonora
This is the effect of information
given out today by rebel agents in El
Paso. Letters from Salazar are shown
to prove the case. It Is said that the
rebel general, admitting the failure of
the Sonora campaign, has again joined
forces with Gen. Pascual Orozco, Jr., in
regard to full cooperation. Salazar. it
,s said, has denounced the Vasquez Go
mez party, which it Is asserted became
i onnected with the Magonista, or so
called Socialist movement in Sonora,
and again is a full fledged Orozco rev
olutionist, following the rebel cause
which has not announced it- candidate
for president, rather fighting shy of
the "Ista" plan and announcing its wil
lingness to accept any. popular substi
tute for president Madero.
Traffic on the Mexico North-TVest-ern
railway is undisturbed further by
rebel activity, and it is believed that
Gen. Salazar -will not cut the railway

The Bentley family and tbe Romney
family came In from Colonia "Juarez
last evening. They say there was some
fighting at Casas Grandes Saturday
evening. One or two rebels were out
Sunday with their arms in slings.
"Word reached them while on the
train that soon after the train pulled
out Sunday, fighting commenced again
at Casas Grandes.
Rebels are collecting at the Tapecita
and they have sent word both to Pear
son and to Casas Grandes that if the
federals do not surrender, they would

The colonists say it is hard to choose
between the rebels and federals. The
rebels steal and confiscate their prop
erty and claim it by right of conquest;
the federals are collecting all loose
property and selling it as unclaimed
property or in the case of cattle as
strays, notwithstanding they go to pri
vate pastures to collect the "strays."
It is feared that the real estate will be
sold' for delinquent taxes, and to make
this possible that they will keep the
taxpayers out by force of arms.
So Sparc Homes In Utah.
Mrs. Done, who has" been to Utah and
returned with the hope of Immediately

stay are placed at a great inconveni

"But we own the cattle; we have

against all law and prestige, driven us

The Mexican looked to the right and

Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico, Oct 7.
"W. C. Laughlin and J. F. Williams,
from San Xavler, are at the Alameda
hotel? Mr. Laughlin said the rebels
had not visited them since the first
raid, about a month ago, at which time
they took everything they could find
in the way of eatables. Just now they
are experiencing considerable difficulty
with the Yaqui Indians. Supplies have
been taken to the mine overland from
Tonichi, and to date the Indians have
killed two sets of men, leaving the
dead bodies beside the wagons. Both
times one or two men have escaped and
gone afoot with the news of the hold
up. At the Tapia and La Cuesta ranches,
near La Colorada, great depredations
have been committed, hundreds of sacks
of grairf being taken. The Indians take
what horses and cattle they can use
and then kill the others and leave their
bodies. They appear to be working in
small bands and going to the ranches
where some of them have previously
been employed, as they seem very fa
miliar with the location.
American consul Hostetter, at Her
mosillo, has now provided an escort
for the men taking supplies to the Las
Animas mine, and Mr. Laughlin hopes
that the party will not be molested by
the Yaquis. If the Indians would work,
they could find remunerative ernplos

That Revolution Is Political Dis
turbance. Dousrlas. Ariz.. Oct 7. It is stated
I here on good authority that the reason
the United States refuses to hold t; e
Mexican rebel leaders caught on this
side of the line, is that their prosecu
tion would n-ean the recognition of
their standin" as bandits, instead of
revolutionists. By treating them as po
litical ofefnders, the Mexican govern
ment is made directly responsible for
all damage inflicted.
The American government is said to
be taking this course preparatory ta
demanding that all foreigners be reim
bursed for losses occasioned by the rev
olution. CONSUL-FAILS WITH
EVIDENCE ON CHARGE
Another case where the Mexican gov
ernment has failed to present the
proofs of the charge filed in asking for
extradition of a person, occurred Satur
day night when Benito Sieardo was giv
en his freedom by the United States
commissioner, the Mexican consul not
presenting the proofs of the charge.
The 46 days prescribed in the treatv
to hold an extradition prisoner had ex
pired. The Mexiean government had
charged Sieardo with having robbed
homes of the Mormon colonists in Mex
ico. Felipe R. Bopez. for whom the Mex
ican consul has asked extradition on
the same charge, will be released soon.
