The federal forces were reinforced last
night by the arrival of detachments of a!l
arms of the services. Many of the rebeU
had fortified themselves In the district,

their hands lately.
The rebels, howevor, had not lncreasd
in number and the size df the army under
th command of Diaz is believed to be
only a little over 2,t00.
Most of the federals who arrived In tho
night were those commanded by Gcniral
Angeles, which he had called from
Cuernavaca. The total of these Is said
to be I.S00, and they brought with then
two pieces of heavy artllcry wlth much
ammunition and stores.
Lieutenant Colonel Daron, who has con
ducted dashing campaigns during ' the
revolution In Mlchoacan and Guanajuato,
arrived with a small force, while Colonel

reputation for brilliant work, came In r.t

American embassy at noon declared that
a detachment of government troops -was
shot to pieces on the western edge of tho
city early today. This Indicates that
Diaz has a mobile force outside his lines

continued to throw shells toward tho

in action at the Oolonla station, on thn

lp to noon, when tho shells of the
contending forces had torn their way
through tho heart of the city for four
hours, nothing like a decisive result had
been achieved, either by the federals or
the rebels. It had been practically i an
artillery duel, although occasionally
small arm fire played a vicious part In
The swift and crushing action promised
by the government was not eullzed. On
the contrary tbo fighting was of a
monotonous regularity, tho federal troops
slowly pounding tho rebel position and
endeavoring to silence Diaz's guns In
order that the final charge might be
made with lesa sacrifice of life. To this
the rebels replied with' a steady fire, but
they were more chary. In throwing away
their ammunition and appeared to take
better aim than ever.
