Tuesday's Brush on Line
Results in Death of Two
TJ. S. GETS REPORT
FROM COL. GUILFOYLE
OUGLAS, ARIZ., March 5. Two
Mexican soldiers were killed in
yesterday's brush on the border
here with troops of the Ninth United
States cavalry, it was learned today
at Agua Prieta. The Mexicans declare
that the machine guns of the American
soldiers caused the deaths.
This makes a total of six federal
soldiers trilled since Sunday, when the
first fight occurred. None of the negro
troopers, have been even wounded. Xo
repetition has occurred since early
yesterday, but the situation is tense.
The entire Ninth Cavalry, including
the machine gun platoon, remains on
the border today, drawn in a skirmish
line for a distance of 20 miles. The
Mexican troops have not been sighted
near the border.
Commander Stood Pat.
Each insisting that the other's
command began the skirmish Sunday
which was repeated yesterday, be
tween Mexican federal troops from the
Agua Prieta garrison and soldiers of
the Ninth cavalry. Col. . Guilfoyl and
Gen. Ojeda stood pat.
The American army officer de
clares' that his men wWl "shoot to
kill" if the border patrol is interfered
-with. The Mexican general asserts
that his men did not begin the firing
and that if proved he would execute
anyone guilty of beginning the trou
ble. There has been no further firing on
the border near here since yesterday
morning. The Ninth cavalry . patrol
has been increased to full force, in
eluding the machine guns, stretching
from Douglas to Forrest station.
There is much excitement here. The
city authorities consider establishing
a special guard. There is an unusual
number of Mexicans in the American
town and much excitement among
them. The rebel messenger arrested
here Saturday by United States troops
was released yesterday. Messages he
carried have been sent to "Washington.

the United States, and the shooting by

Washington. D. C, March S. Mexican
troops were responsible for the latest
border fight near Douglas. Ariz., -with
troops of the Ninth cavalry, by firing
the first shot, according to a report
today from Brig. Gen. Bliss, at Fort

Indications today are that the present
legislature will adjourn" on" March 14
without enacting a law fixing the'sala
ries of county officials. Whether the
governor, under those circumstances,
would call a special session, is a matter
he will not discuss at this time. The
county salary bill was vetoed by the
governor a week ago. The house Re

and are reported-to have abandoned all
ideas of a compromise measure. They
were unable to pass the existing meas
ure over the veto. A motion by George

the existing bill, was defeated and the
house then recessed until this afternoon

meet until 2:S0 this afternoon, and is

Much of the time of the house was
taken up by the readinng of the tele

charged, had been sent by a membe'r of
the house to himself. The telegram,
the correspondence and a reply by Maj.
W. H. H. Llewellyn, who was accused
of writing the telegram to himself and
Lsigning the names of several of his
constituents, were all read.
The major's statement was as follows-:
"The mountain has labored and
