of the clash in the formative days

pulses VERA CRUZ, May 27. Gen. Diaz
himself took command of tho feder
al soldiers who ropulsed a large forco
of rebels while tho former president
of Mexico was on his way from Mex
ico City to Vera Cruz. The latest
estimates place the number of rebel
dead at 20. Tbo number of wounded
is unknown.
The attack on the train on which
Max was traveling anu the escorting
trains occurred at Tcpeyahualeo.
With Diaz at tbo tlmo was Senora
Diaz, Col. Porfirlb Diaz, his son, and
family. The trains proceeding slowly
with a pilot engine In the lead. Tho
military train was ahead, then the
president's special. All trains were
wrecked and a repair of the trains
was necessary.
Use Rapid Fire Guns.
Tho rebels came Into tho open ns
tbo trains approached Tcpeyahualeo.
They numbered 500 and began a fierce i
attack. The federals, once detrained,
used their rapid fire guns. Diaz or
dcred his special car to proceed near,

ed with a plslol in his hand and ran
forward to aid its defenders.
Tho federals' quick action with the
rapid fire's took tho rebels by sur
prise and they were soon In full re

high speed.
No Demonstrations.
Tho arrival here of Diaz was re
eelved in silence. ;NeltCier cheers
nor hisses greeted tho man who held
power In Mexico for so many years.
Diaz was met by J. B. Body, to whose
home he hastened.

steamer YpiraEga, which sails
for Spain on May 31, by way of Hav

appears to bo greatly Improved.
Diplomats estimate that the war
cost will not be less than $20,000,000
gold, that perhaps one-tenth of tills
was due to damages sustained by
foreigners. Half of this amount, it
is said on high authority, is loss suf
fered by Americans.
Chinese Claims Big.
In their legations, foreigners have
already begun arranging their claims,
although a greater part 'still remains
filed. Tho claims of China -will be
remarkable for the number of individ
uals demanding Indemnity. Almost
all of these come from Sonora and
Coagufla, where Chinese were victims
of mobs.
Retorts from Torreon received by
the Chinese legation say the number
of dead In the massacre of May IS
was 238. Most of the victims were
coiuararJvely poor. Those surviv
ing found difficulty in supplying thera
Belvec with food. The Chinese reform
association of the capital toiay open
ea subscription lists ror funds for the
aid of their countrymen. The claims
of Japan are based on the death of
seven Japanese in Torreon.
