July 1. An Indirect result of the massacre of Chinesee at Toreon in the revolution may mean the exclusion from. Mexico of Celes tials. Hecause of a scarcity of labor for the mine and haciendas Mexico has encouraged the Importation of Chinese but exactly those arguments economic and racial which led to tin lr exclusion by the l'liited States are now being freely discussed here.

Six men working In another head ing of the mine at the time of the uo cident knew nothing of the explosion until the compressed air stopped their drills and one man was knocked from his rock drill.
