from Mexico City roaching here today, including some reports to the govern ment, appeared to be in sharp con flict with the summary of the- bitua tion as to tho Sonora revolutionary movement made public In Mexico City today, i Army officers who are studying (ho situation beyond the border were franlc In declaring their opinion, baaod on government advices, that the revolu i Hon was raoro srelous than the Car-1 ranza officiate were wllllnc to admit. Theso officers attached much import nnco to tho southward drive of Gen. Angel Flores' revolutionary forces! through tho state of Sinaloa, south of Sonora. They also saw no probabil ity, from their advices or unofficial reports, of an early attack Jn force by the federal forces on the revolution I ary forces in Sonora itself. It Delay Dangerous. 1 This delay, it was said, would be dangerous not only because of the size oftho force at hand, but because of the Increased activities of Villa along j the government's exposed llnea of communication. Flores, who has occupied Culiacan, is reported to be some distance south ; on his way to the state of Nayarit. i KIs movement has been facilitated by, I the use of motor trucks which he was !

(By The Associated Press). Tho developments of the last two weeks resulting from the Sonora revolutionary activities show that the central government is preparing to encircle the rebellious state with a steel ring, meanwhile cruBhiug sporadic outbreaks in other paits of the republic with a strong hand. A summary of the situation since ! the northern state broke with the Car 1 ranza administration has been issued by the war department officials. The long list of professions of adhesion to tho Carranza government from vir tually every state oxecutive and mil itary leader except those who have openly Joined the Sonora revolution ists, would seem to indicate that the republic as a whole Is solidly support ing tho present government. Aside from the Sonora state gov- havo repudlatod tho present adminis tration, these being General Enrique lEntrada, in the state of Zacatecas and I General Oritz Rubio, in the state of Michoacan. Both of these executives, however, have failed to attract any great following and are being pursued, by loyal forces. Estrada Cited For Treason. The state legislature in Zacateacs jhas repudiated the attitude of Estrada 'and cited him for treason, whllo tho Michoacan legislature has unsoated Oritz Rublo and named Primo Sen-ante Mercadm as his successor. General Ramon Iturbe, governor of Sialoa, has protested his loyt.lty and ii using what forces are available to check the Incursions of the Sonora troops into Sinaloa. Tho present whereabouts of General Alvaro Obregon, former war minister, who Is slated for the presidency of Mexico, by the Sonora rebels, and Gen. Benjamin Hill, his campaign leader, Is uncertain. Obregon and Hill in Hiding. The general belief is that both the rebel leaders who left Mexico City two weeks ago upon receipt of reliable advices that Sonora had rebelled, fled toward the Pacific coast by way of Michoacan. Apparently General Hill remained behind Obregon, because, In n skirmish betwoen rebels and a gov I eminent detachment at Contreras, a few miles southwest of Mexico City j on April 18, a letter written by him in ' viting the commander of the govern ment detachment to Join the rebels was captured after the rebels had been ' scattered. j It Is supposed that General Hill re- mained behind for the purpose of re uni .'ng if possible tho scattered bands Z-ipr.tistas In Moroloo. Nothing is ( feared from this scheme, bb the Mex ico City garrison numbers about ten thousand men, while the government officials are satisfied that the scheme could not be effective. : ' Central Government Safe. The crushing defeat inflicted April 21 by General Francisco Murguia's troops upon tho rebels' forces headed by General Arnulfo Gomez, which at tacked the Tuxpam oil center, climin ated the only danger to tho central government outside of Sonora, accord ing to the war department. Gomez, who with about seven hundred Yaqul Indians Joined forces with General Manuel Pelaez. Is said to have suffer ed about 300 casualties, failing to en ter the city and was forced to retreat to the Jungle. The arrival at Mexico City of Gen. Maycotte, expected within a few days, it is believed, will clear up the situa tion In the state of Guerrero, whero press reports declare Maycottc's for ces followed Colonel Francisco Flgu eroa, governor of that state, in rebel lion. Political Situation in Background. While the political situation has been driven entirely into the back ground by the Sonora revolt, the afc titude assumed by the presidential can didates has been tho subject of con gratulatory editorials by the papors supporting the government. Both Ygnaclo Bonillas, who is a native of Sonora, and General Pablo Gonzales have denounced Sonora's action and re iterated their loyalty to the constitut ed government. Both Bonillas and Gonzalos limited their activities to press statements until April 23 when Gonzales held a three hours' confer ence with President Carranza. Unconfirmed reports after the Gon-zales-Carranza conference wero to the effect that Gonzales was about to ac cept the portfolio of wnr minister or tako the field at the head of a otrong army. A significant feature of the published lists of loyalty professions! is tho inclusions of many generals! who formerly operated under General Gonzales in Central Mexico.

General Candido Aguilar, who has been recalled Into active service, is at Vera Cruz organizing p. strong column. Wliile tho belief Is that tho govern ment will attempt tho subjugntion of Sonora by forces advancing from Cas Grandes, Chihuahua, another army by way of Sinaloa, and by sea bv way of Guayamas, uncertainty provails re garding the possibility of an attack from the north, since the foreign of fice has issued a denial that the Mex ican government asked the permission of the United States to transport troops through American territory.

Obreaon and Hill Face Court Martial. The war department, according to tho published statement, considers Ob regon and his chief supporter, General Benjamin Hill as belonging to the mil itary forces, which brings them within tho score of a drumhead court martial on charges of rebellion and treason and makes the death sentence pos sible. The Vera Cruz legislature hus already declared all campaigning for the election of Obregon treasonable.

Mr. Lloyd Georgo, replying to ques tions, also said: "We have discouraged the use of military means to enforce the treaty when not necessary to use them.
