Guanacevi. Dgo., Nov. 14. Rebels
numbering about 250 attempted to take

adjacent to the place were on the look
out and when the would-be intruders
came within firing distance they were
met by volley after volley from the
garrison and citizens who responded
to the call for aid.
The fusillade was too much for the
rebels, who scattered to the hills away
from the town.
A traveler reaching here late last
night from Tepehuanes brought a mes
sage given him on the road directed to
the town officials. The message said
that the rebels would be reinforced in
a day or so a,nd that they would attack
again if the city was not delivered to
them. In response the military offi
cials sent out a call for help and a
large body of citizens responded.
