Llbrrated by RevolutlonUtm?Yaqiii Iiirflan* Aidlng Rebels. Kl Paso, Tex., Nov. __.?Real revo? lution is now in progress iu the Btate of Cbihauhau. Bloody lightingbetween loyal troops aud insurgeuts ia reported from many places' there. A pitched battle is be? lieved to be impending at Parral, where a band of revolutionist.*. seized a dyna mito boat, took al! ?f the explosives and made for the hills. A traiuload of infantry reaclied tho scene early today and at laat accounts was about to at? tack the iuinera, who are said to be en trenched. A party of tbe revolutionists attacked tlie prison at Acambaro, Guanjato, and liberated tbe prisoners. They then looted the shops and secured arins and aramunition. The party then marche.l to the municipal palace, and after driv ing out the ofticials blew open the safes ?nd carried away all of the funds. While they wero leaving the palace a detaebment of infantry arrived, and fighting began wbich soon became fa?t and furiotia, Finally tho unorganized mob flcd iu every direction leaving many dead and wounded behind.

Mexico City, Nov. 22.?The result of the lighting during tho night at Durango, a city of 30,000, north of tbe state of Tepic, in Central Mexico. is withheld today by military otfkials who eontrol the last remaining telegraph wire to the capital. Clashes between government troops and agitators commenesd before G p. m.,after which telegraph wires were cut. It is feared tliat with the approach of darkoaas tho ritoaiioo grew in iotao sity and rioting doubtless oootioued through tho night. Authorities here believc the isolalion of Durango, so far 88outside 00mmtini eatioti ia concerued, is chargeablo to revolutionaries. Kl Paso, Tex., Nov.

The infantry tbat was aeottoattack tho revolutionists and ininers there reaebed tho town duriog Ibe nifbl and a renning light began which lasted until today. Tho revolutionists finally retired, leaving behind a dozen killed and a number wounded. The casual ties of the government troops were re? ported to be slight. Secret advices from tho interior, reaching here early today, declared that the revolutionists near Oanaoea have ei.listed the aid of Yaipii Indians, win. have been at wtr with the govern? ment for years and that betwe.-n 1,000 and 2,000 Indians arillaoOO take tbe field under revolutionary leadirs A renowal of tightinsr at Puebla and several other points is reported today. The rebels aro said to have CUl lh? wires above Monterey, making it iin possible to get any definite advic.s from that section.

Klated by tales of revolutionary BOC cesscs throughout all the northem states of Mexico, Banor I~ura Aguirr... a promineut anti-Diaz Mexican, whom the Diaz goverument has several tiiin-s Bttemptod to arrest within the past two years, made this prediction today. He aaid that from private information, tbe revolution whi.h today has all the north of Mexico aflame, was so well organized and armed that the dowi\fall of Diaz is a certainty. Monctova, Mex., No?. 22.- (via Eaglo Pass)?Startling reports of tba extent of the revolutionary upris* ing were received bere today from railroad men who arrived from the south and from t rivate telegrama over the government wires. The revolu? tionists had captured the three chief towoa in the rich Nazas river valley. They are Torreon, Uomez Palacio and I.erdo, with populations of 75,000.

Witb the arrival here today of President Taft, it becamo known that the cruiser Tenneasee, hearing President Taft home from Panama barely SSCaped colliston Friday night at sea some 160 miles south of Cuba. The Tennessee was ateaming at the ratc of 10 knots au hour followed, about 1,000 yards bebind by her sister ship and convoy, tbe Montana. About 11:80 a tn.pical dulugo <?f raiu brougbt black darkne*s. As the rain was clear ing away an officer aboard the Tennes see made out tho lights of a big vessel 500 yards away and directly across tbe bow of the cruiser. Her Captain apparently *aw the danger ju-t in tia e and swung away, disappearing in tbfl ntist before hc could be apoken. It was bdieved that tbe vessel was the German trainingsbip, Freya. She did not res pond to wireless calls. That the escape was a narrow one is admitted. At tbe rate of speed the Tenuessee was travel ing or would have been ditlieult to have avotdfld a collision and with the Montana coming ahead 1,0<)0 yards bebind, a collisiou would inevitably have caused an iiupact of ibrsfl vessels.

Both Crippen and the girl were in tears most of th. time. Crippen appeared the braver of tho two and did most of the talking.
