SONORA SEETHING .
WITH REVOLUTION
DOUGLAS, Ariz., March 4. According to advices received from Colonia More
los, tiat place or somewhere ia the vicinity is scheduled to be the first
battleground between the Maderistas, bow said to nasafeer 700, under Mateo
Ortiz, and former rebels under Rojas, said to be under way from Chihuahua to
aid the Haerta forces.
The Ortiz force is being strengthened daily by the arrival of large nHmber of
recruits, both from this side of the line and from Bavispe river towns.
MANY ARMED FORCES.
The town of Opata, of 2500 people, sent an armed force of 300, and they are
said to have brought 25,000 rounds of "30-30" ammunition with them.
Cumpas and Mocteznma are organizing forces to support the nacionalista
cause. Prefect 0. Bracamonte, of Moctezuma, is said to have written his resigna
tion, to become effective as soon as his force is equipped and ready for the field.
Nacozari is a hotbed of the contending elements. The Pilares, the mining
section, and Campa are in the hands of the Maderistae. A federal garrison is
holding Nacozari.
ARE SAVING AGUA PRIETA.
Agua Prieta will not be attacked for some time, according to the local junta.
The rebels will wait until sufficient force is collected to take "the town and capture
the Nacozari road at the same time. Agua Prieta suffered farther depletion yes
terday when 20 Mayo indians sent oat to the southwest on scout duty, over
powered their captain, stripped him of his coat and other insignia of rank and
spared his life only on condition that he notify Gen. Ojeda that they had gone to
join the nacionaKstas. The rest of the indians in garrison are quite restive. They
refuse to answer bugle calls or engage in garrison duties. Yesterday they secured
green hat bands, the nacionalista colors, and are boldly wearing them.
ACTIVE RECRUITING.
Active recruiting continues this side of the hue. The junta claims that no less
than 100 crossed Sunday. Ranchers on the border say 30. crossed. The Maderistas
are doing al in their power to discredit Dr. Saenz, of El Paso, who claims to be a
peace delegate of de la Fuente. Saenz returned from Tucson -yesterday, claimine
to have won over both ex-governor Maytorena and ex-secretary Padilla of Sonora
to the Huerta regime. When questioned on thi line local Madensta leaders l

PASCUAL OROZCO de pas. ,
This tall warrior of the north. I
. . . I
who has been the dominant figure
during the three years of -the revolu- I
tion in the republic has assumed a new
role, that of .peacemaker for his people.
There art. no strings attached to
Oroxco's pOtio proposal?, as he told
them to me Sbnday afternoon at the
abandoned ranch houne in CarrixaL
Unlike the sullen Salazar, who is ready
for peace "if, etc.," Orozeo says he is
ready -to quit the field, return to his
mines in western Chihuahua and cast
his sword Into a miner's pick. There
are no conditions attached to his state
ment that he wishes peace. Neither
are there any evasions of the point
blank questions as to terms, as shown
by Salazar at Guadalupe. Peace is what
the people pf Mexico wish and the wish
of bis people is his guiding light,
Orosco said. There is no reason to
doubt the sincerity of the big man of
the mountains. Neither is there proof
that he Is not a patriot, who has been
fighting for his people. Personally, he
says he wishes nothing, which is the
acid test of patriotism, whether Mexican
or American.
Orozeo in Deserted Village.
In the "sala" of the most pretentious
of the abandoned ranch houses in Carri
zal, the deserted village of the Chihua
hua plains, Orozco's staff members were
squatting about a big dish of frljole
beans and tortillas ui-m -n-. arrived
Sunday afternoon. One was Col. Augus
tin Estrada, the commander of the
Juarez garrison at the time of the- mu
tiny; another was CoL Luis Bstrada,
dressed in slate colored fatigue uniform
of the federal army and wearing a six
shooter; a third was a pale lad who
wore spats and specs and who read The
Herald to the group in perfect Spanish.
There was nothing military In the ap
pearance of any of the men, unless it
was. Louie Estrada's uniform ana
wicked looking pistol. But even that
was neutralized by a big sombrero and
a standard gage smile. Augustin Bs
trada needed a shave about two weeks'
worth; CoL Dominguez wore a pair of
leather puttees with buttoned shoes, and
the learned lad had a haircut coming.
We had arrived from El Paso on the
down train for Chihuahua in company
with CoL Pedro Lloya, who had been
with Orozeo after Ojinaga and who was
one of his most trusted aides We had
driven three leagues which means nine
long, American miles behind Jacon and
his broncs, from Villa Ahumada station
to Carrizal. for a talk and a few photo
graphs of Orozeo. Col. Lloya arranged
for the interview with Orozeo. who
was resting in his quarters after the
long ride from Coyame in the pack
saddle, which had been improvised from
cowhides slung between two patient
horses. After a cup of concentrated lye
called coffee, and after refusing a dish
of frijoles because we had had a big
lunch en route.we sat in the cool of

of Uncle Sam's warriors, atid a belted

was given him in Juarez, the sword
was only for display, and th'er is about

Orosco as there is in a well bred army
