There are conflicting stories of the

a remark of Colonel Tambourel, of
Juarez, taunting the insurrectos, was
the real cause. Madero regrets the
occurence. The fight lasted until
darkness, and was a thrilling spec

rectos were led by W. II. McKensic,
a Canadian, flying a pink shirt. At
the first fire of the rebels two fed
erals toppled over. The federals fled
to the trenches but soon abandoned
these, the insurrectos, however, not
advancing then continued firing from
the shrubbery. At five o'clock this
evening the federals brought a can
non into play. The rebels hugged the
river bank and the shells flew far
over and fell in the "Peace grove"
where the commission met. The reb
els, under the protection of the river
bank, forced the federals back, the
latter being fearful to fire lest the
bullets might go to the American
side. The rebels then crept to the
Santa Fe bridge, forcing the federals
back into the city and seized the
custom-house. The rebels then en
tered the town itself and ' for four
hours there was continuous firing on
the streets, which here looked like
a real battle. Insurrecto reinforce
ments reached the Santa Fe bridge
and after a short parley did not
fire. However they soon withdrew,
abandoning the rebels in the city.

Many Americans were among the

Serious Situation at Jerome Discussed
At Mass Meeting and Steps Taken
To End Boilermakers' Strike
(Special to the Journal-Miner.)
JEROME, Ariz., May 8. Following
the receipt yesterday afternoon by
Assistant General Manager Will L.
Clark of the United Verde Copper
Company of orders from General
Manager Charles Clark and Former
Senator Clark of Montana to close
down the entire smelting plant at
Jerome at once in the ovent that
boilermakcrs could not be secured to
take the places of the men who quit
work a week ago, the largest mass
meeting in the history of the town
was held tonight at which the serious
situation was discussed and a com
mittee appointed to try to adjust the
differences between the company and
the boilermakcrs. The meeting was
attended by nine hundred men, in
cluding oil the merchants and many
of the leauii;? employes of the com
pany employed at day work, every
one of whom were anxious for the
prompt settlement of the trouble.
Frank E. Smith, postmaster, pre
sided and Will L. Clark in a short
address stated the position of the
company and the harm that would
ensue in the event that an amicable
adjustment of the differences be
tween the employes and the manage
ment was not reached at once. Ho
stated that under the present condi
tions it was impossible for the com
pany to secure enough boilermakers
and that some of the mechanics who
had quit work had spread the news
San Francisco." The names of the
others killed were not learned. There
is occasional firing in Juarez to
night, though Xavarro is in complete
command of the situation.
In the main insurrecto camp today
confusion reigned. Orders were given
for a general attack but later coun
termanded. It was urged by some
of the chiefs that progress would be
made with a small detachment which
the main force should reinforce and
easily take Juarez. Madero waiver
ed on the notion and finally 'held to
his promise to not attack the city.
Those bearing flags of truce suffered.
One insurrecto with a flag of truce
is said to have been shot from his
horse. This was not confirmed to
night at 9.13 o'clock. An automobile
with a flag of truce left Madero's
camp for Juarez tonight. It is said
General Xavarro was willing all day
to grant an armistice, but that the
insurrectos ignored all efforts in that
Federals Use Machine Gun.
Five Americans came to the middle
of the bridge and asked permission
to bring the rebels who were wounded
across. The request was refused.
John F. Jones, of Chicago was caught
in Juarez sightseeing and allowed to
cross to the American side. Other
rebels also crossed and all said forty
federal dead were found in one aban
doned trench. They declared the reb
els can casilv take the town if sup
ported by reinforcements. F. Cassidy,
member of the American legion of
the insurrecto armv. said that seventy
rebels with a white flag were met
on Comercio, street by a band of
federals. The latter fired a machine
gun and the destruction was terrific!

also stated at the meeting that the
boilermakers had represented that
their action was backed by the na
tional boilermakcrs' organisation and
that no union man couM be found
to take their places. This tew was
not shared by other mechanics em
ployed at the works who denie! that
the local trouble was either author
ized or -had the support of the na
tional organization. One of the strik

represented their side of the case
with the result that Mayor David
Connor, A. A. MacPhersnn, Tim Shea,
G. W. Hull and John W. Harrington
were appointed as a committee to
