Did he not rldo through the streets and make speeches to the masses? "The attacks on the CluJudclii were of i farcical nature. Huerta spread the report that heavy artillery could not be n-ed against the CiinUi'lela, but Col. .aarette. his chief of artillery, said emphatically that If Huerta had let him alone he could have taken the ciud.nlela In two hours.
