stopped to ask the reason why. Each

Tour carloads of provisions intended
for the federal soldiers south of

out on Tuesday morning's train -were
burned in the fire which also de
stroyed other railway equipment. Lo
v ation of the origin of the blaze, and
a ieport of the Mexican secret ser
vice tends to the belief that the fire
was incendiary. It is believed that
Salazar and Rojas, the two rebel lead
ers who control the railway at various
points between Juarez and Chihuahua,
are determined to keep traffic closed
until Gen. Pascual Orozco with the
nain group of rebels has arrived in
his old stamping ground from Coa

make a Latin holiday, were set out
on a siding telow the Mexican Cen

iHuniinatiot. for the surrounding hills
and the tree grown acequia, and a
splendid setting for the gathering of
civilian and martial folk who aur
ounded the martyred box cars on
tbico sides and an end. To add to the
occasion, the El Paso fire chief in an
te nobile and a white cap and a fire
.r-on with six red hatted fire fight
ers on the hurricane deck, scooted over
the river and made an official inspec
tion of the fire.
A detachment of the 15th battalion
was shufflpl down from the garrison
and stationed in an irregular hollow
square around the burning cars. Gen.
Aubert occupied the center of the
square and mounted gendarmes gallop
ed around the ragged edge, 'as if there
was anything that really could be done
except to watch the cars burn to the
running gears. The soldiers did not
trouble tr.emselves even so much as
to watch the fire, preferring the cin
der covered ground as a spot to gaze
on in their sullenness. The gen
!rr:nes did not take the loss of the
box cars so seriously, and they gal
loped around the fire with enough

Juarez some small bridges have been
burned between Summit and Coyote,
two stations immediately south of
San Pedro on the Juarez division of
the road. The two bridges destroyed
on the Chihuahua division are located
between Las Vegas and Rineon. Their
reconstruction will require much time
and expert engineering. In view of
the latest destruction of the road
after the first week, of reconstruction,
railway officials have abandoned any
attempt to continue the work. All
that the federal government has done
is to give a troop guard to the work
train operating below Juarez. No pa
trol of the road has been undertaken.
A train left Juarez Tuesday morn

in the fire during the night were

DOWN THE YAQUIS
Douglas, Ariz., Nov. 5. Since the
quieting of the revolutionary situation
in Sonora, the federal troops have had
more opportunity to devote their time
and attention to the band of 200 Yaqui
Indians which "went upon the warpath
while the rebel trouble was at its
height. So successful have been their
efforts that, according to news reach
ing here, the greater portion of the In
dians have either been forced to re
turn to their reservation In the Yaqui
River valley and resume. their life of
farmers, or have been killed. The fed
erals have split into numerous small
bands which are thoroughly scouring
the mountains for the renegade reds.
The return of the Chinese to Sonora
has started Recently the tide was
flowing toward the United States, many
celestials being sent out in bond to
Pacific coast ports. The first consid
ers! bunch to go into Sonora for six
months or more, left Naco in charge
of Southern Pacific guard Cooke, after
having traversed California and Ari
zona under bond.

BY UNITED STATES SOLDIERS
United States soldiers are guarding
the smelter cars both day and night.
A soldier rides each car out from the
viaduct to the end of the line, rides
back on it and makes the next car out.
This is done for the purpose of pre
venting ammunition smuggling and in
cidentally affords protection for the
cars. Prior to the placing of these
guards on the cars, Mexicans in the
smelter settlement took the trolleys off
and on two occasions stoned the cars.
There has been no such occurrence
since the guards were placed on duty.

has been a Godsend to so many of the
