Mrs. Edwards to go to Fairfax.

the family say that Edwards was de

defended the town, were both killed and
the Indians captured the place. Of the
fight at Tocolete and Los Paredones
ranch little is known, except that the
Indians were victorious and took pos
session of both places. From Toco
lete they poceeded to Rayon, an im
portant mining camp, which had been
warned of their coming and prepared
to meet them, but with little avail, as
the 300 Yaquis overcame the hurriedly
organized- company sent out against
them, and some of the Indians who suc

torch to the Killen Hotel, which with
several other buildings was burned.

the fight, while a party of five Indians
