FEDERAL PRISONERS ENLIST WITH REBELS* AGUA PROA 15 EVACUATED BY MEXICO TROOPS Diaz Force Hastens West to Naco to Entrain for Hermosillo Jnsurrcctos Gathering at the Sonora Capital for Next Big Battle ,an escort of cavalry. Her face was beaming with • joy,. her black dress covered with dust, and she spurred her horse to the scene of her husband's , triumph. The shouting increased as the two embraced and entered the municipal building, now the Madcro headquarters. Orders were being issued there by General Fascual Orozco all afternoon to his men to guard stores and houses to .prevent looting. General Orosco himself shot at two of his own men, whom he caught trying to make away with some booty. , The town that the federals thought impregnable to attack felt after a com paratively easy effort. The house to houpe advance of the insurrectos, the samp deadly fire which had driven the federals from their trenches and outposts early Monday, when the skirmishing began, gave them an en trance to the town hardly molested by the artillery of the federals. ' REBELS USB BOMBS At the end of yesterday's fighting the rPbefs had extensive control of the town. During the night they discov ered the federal strongholds, and, by the use of dynamite bombs and shells. a raging conflagration and fierce. mus- 1 ketry, fought their way to the famous old Spanish church of the town, a brown colored building whose high brick fence formed a barricade for the federals. The Insurrectos took the church at midnight. The federals retreated fur ther Into the city to the roof of the municipal building, the edges of which were piled high with sandbags for a barricade. ' After the attack was renewed early ♦■"day and the rebel« had brought ttiMr machine guns within deadly range, the federals retired to the bar racks and insurrectos by the hundreds occupied the houses within 100 yards on every side. Their fire was rapidly demolishing the building. There was no other alternative for General Xa varro but to yield. WHITE FI.M.

He first attempted to send a messenger to Senor Obregon, one of the go be tweens in the recent peace effort to bring about peace negotiations to ar range for a cessation of hostilities or a sort of armistice, but the rebels would accept nothing except Immediate sur render. • ;■«.!."> The gray haired general stood in the doorway of the barracks and re ceived Colonel Garibaldi. Raoul Ma dero, a brother of the rebel leader, dashed forward with his gun pointed st Navarro ready to shoot if Garibaldi were liit. Federals and insurrectos alike, liowevr, withheld their fire while the surrender was being ar ranged. The fighting soon ceased and atten tion was immediately directed to the dead and wounded. The federals in their humiliation tore off their visera 'caps and uniforms and walked de jectedly in their underclothing down the street under guard of the insur rectos to the corral. They numbered about 500. Tonight it was reported that 150 of them had taken the oath of allegiance to General Madero and would join his forces. CHinCH BELLS RING Church bells were rung, residents of the town appeared in the streets with •ighs of relief and the insurrectos be gan a continuous uproar of shouts. The insurrectos began to collect thou sands of rounds of ammunition from the federal barracks and they easily have made the most valuable capture of the revolution. They now have two mortars, three machine guns and two field pieces. Their ammunition belts, somewhat depleted during the attack, are filled again. The town of Juarez has been mauled beyond recognition by bullets and shells. Several houses have been i burned to the ground. Numerous adobe Uwellingj< are roofless.

Mew, May 10.—Safely quartered in the municipal building, in more commodious quarters than his adobe hut of the last three weeks, Francisco I. Madero tonight dctate dthe following statement: "The taking of Juarez is of a very great military and political importance to the revolutionists .and it assures us of a complete triumph in a very short time. The forces which defended the town fought valiantly. They owe their defeat to the fact that our forces were inspired in this fight by the spirit to win political liberty, while the federals Avcrc only held in their ranks by the yoke of discipline. "The majority arc in the army against their will. For this reason. 1 wish to announce to a!l soldiers that I will set them free as soon as I can find a way to insure some means of support for those who do not wish to incorporate themselves in my frees. "At present I can not set them free, as they have no means of subsistence, which would be dangerous. As far as I can now observe, the majority of the prisoners will swell my forces. Some o fthe officers, 1 am sure, will enter my army, and thise who wish to remain true to the government of Porfirio Diaz will be exchanged for prisoners of war or political prisoner.

They were allowed to do «o, however. only after the rebel chiefs had placed a guard at all stores or houses whoso entrances were exposed, as well as around the outskirts of the town. Telephone wires were soon repaired and shattered telegraph poles re placed. The Insurrectos now are try ing to make their new capital a habit able place. Happiest :imong those vho were about the streets were the prisoners. liberated from th<» jail during the, day. Many of them claim to have been in nocent of any wrongdoing. .Tames Monaghan. who lives in Philadelphia, who went sisr'it seeing in Juarez on Sunday, says he was arrested as a spy and since then has been in prison, he ing forced very frequently, however, during the fighting to carry water across the street t« the federal soldiers who fought from the tops of the jail. MADERO COM.RATIXATES >lEV General Mad°ro walked about in the streets, congratulating his men. Their horses had not yet been brought from the old camp late today. He wore a felt hat with the. insurreeto colors wrapped around it. Much more ammunition than they ever dreamed to be in Juarez, tonight is in the hands of the revolutionist. 1!. The sympathy of the people in <'hih\ia hua is with the rebels and if they march southward toward Mexico City, it Is most certain they will recruit thousands of men. The probable, course of action of the insurrectos now will be to determine whether the government is ready to make definite peace concessions. Ne gotiations for peace probably will be resumed in a day or two, but the rebel demands probably will be much stronger than before. All the erst while peace commissioners and rebel political chiefs were in Juarez tonight conferring with Madero. Jl ARE3S WAim FOOD r>r. Vasrpjez Gomez. confidential agent of the Mexican revolutionists in the United States, tonight telegraphed his assistant in Washington, Senor .lose Vasooneelos, to make representations j to the war department Immediately for the removal of restrictions hitherto placed by the United States troops on the passage of food and supplies to Juarez. Gomez says the customs officials will not hinder food from going across, but the United States troops are holding everything up. As to what the signifi cance of the war department's action might he as far as recognizing the rebels as in possession of Juarez, Gomez said he was not concerned. He said that they would insist, however, that the United States troops permit food to reach the hungry city. A GUA PRIETA IN ■i^HANDSOF REBELS Federals Evacuate Town Before Arrival of Insurrectos DOUGLAS, Ariz., May 10.—Ttebel commanders in the Sonora campaign took charge of Aqua Prieta tonight, and set up a temporary state govern ment in the Mexican frontier port, which was abandoned by its federal garrison early today. This govern ment will be perfected tomorrow. Genera] Jose Perfecto LomeJln. com mander of th« rebel forces in Sonora. sent temporary officers into Aqua Pri eta. Police were posted to patrol the street, and before morning Anaclete Glron and 700 in«urrecto» are expected to arrive to regarrison the town. Giron was on his way to attempt the recapture of Aqua Prieta when couriers reached him today, informing him that It had been evacuated by the federals. His force is now only a few miles to the southeast. The rebels will name officers for the town tomorrow, including postmaster, custom house collectors, Jefe and guards. Since there are no federal soldiers in all the country from Douglas south, officials will be named for Fronteras, Nacozarl. Tigre, Cos, Cumpas. Sahuaripa and towns along the Taqui river. WILL LET PEOPLE RETURN "We will let the people come back Into the town*." said one of the rebel leaders tonight, "and Invite them to i take part in the election of their offi cial*, thus putting into practice the principle for which we entered into i this rebellion." Aqua Prieta is strewn with wreck -1 age. and fires were burning in several places tonight. The insurrectos are al ready engaged in repairing the trenches destroyed by the federals, and hope to make the town Impregnable. Mines planted by the government soldiers are being carefully dug up, the dynamite being stored for future use.* The town will be the seat of the provisional gov ernment in Sonora, and the campaign against the Diaz troops will be directed from this point. In addition to the force of Giron. another rebel command will arrive . from the south In the morning. It is said that Colonel Juan Medina, I who was In command during the bat , tie of April 17 and surrendered to ' American troops early the next morn ing, will be named jefe in command of the town's "defenders." Medina was released recently by the Americans. i The federal force which evacuated THE SAX FRAXriSCO (ALL, THURSDAY, MAY 11, 1911. Aqua Prieta early today arrived Bafely at Kaco tonight and will proceed to Koprales. This indicates that in . the hurry to get reinforcements to Her moslllo. Cananea is to be abandoned to Its fate. From Xogales the federal army -svill attempt to reach Hermosillo by special train. This makes it vir tually certain that Juan Cabral, Juan Antonio Garcia and Frank L.angston. who, w(lli their l.fiOO men. made no attempt today to head off the retreat ing federals, will attack Cananea. Thp federal force moved out of the town at an early hour, traveling In the direction of Hermosillo. All federal: offices In the port have j been closed and abandoned, the post office, stamp agency and custom hou*e being vacated. As the orders for the evacuation were duplicated to Naco, many American mining camps •will have 1 to close down through the suspen i sion of customs service. BATTLE IS IMMINENT Between Aqua Prieta and Hermosillo a large rebel force is concentrated and H is unlikely that Colonel Reynaldo Diaz and Major Luis Medina Barren and their forces will be able to reach j the capital without a battle. Hermo sillo is now surrounded by a, large; band of rebels, including 800 Yaqui In dians armed with Mauser rifles. The Aqua Prieta garrison worked until a lat« hour last night construct ing new intrenchments. Toward dawn the soldiers began to undo this work, filling up not only the new trenches but the old ones left by the insur rectos. The adobe breastworks were leveled to the ground and the, block house, south of the bullring was bat tered into kindling. Trenching tools were piled in heaps and burned, and., leaving not a man behind, the garri son began the evacuation at dawn. The federal army of 600 under Colonel Diaz passed through Pananea pass, weat of Aqua Prieta. without being at tacked by the rebels. A correspondent followed Diaz'forces in an automobile to the pass. » ANAXEV REPORTED QUIET Cananea la reported over a private telephone line to he still quiet, which indicates that the combined rebel forces have not appeared In the Fonora river valley, but are waiting in the foothills to attack the federal army marching west. Americans who reached here from southern Sonora today reported rebel bands concentrating for a campaign against Hermosillo, the capital of that state. Arrivals from Poza, a station on the Southern Pacific railroad, said that a stream of insurrectos had been ing through the rich mining district east of there in the last few days, all en route to the capital. Several of these rebel bands did not hesitate to confiscate all the provisions at the camps of American mining com panies, takinfe also the stocks of powder and dynamite from the powder houses These explosives, they said, would be used in the manufacture of bombs to be employed in the attack on. Hermo slllo. An automobile recently put into serv ice between Poza and the mining camps in that district was wrecked by rebels, who also took the horses of the Ameri cans who reached here today. The refugees had to walk to the railroad. According to the reports brought by these Americans, Sonora is in a stats of turmoil from Hermosillo east to Nacozari and south to the Yaqui river UEDERALS SEEK A TIJUANA AGAIN Rebel Scouts Wounded and Tell Pryce of Approach TIJUANA. I,ower California. May 10. Two men, rebel scouts, have arrived in Tijuana wounded. They reported at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon and said they had been shot In a brush with federal scouts out near Tijuana hot springs, about four miles southeast of Tijuana- General Pryce immediately ordered every visitor out of Tijuana and de tailed a party of men to escort them to the line, half a mile away. The men were also ordered into the defenses and the wait for the report of the scouts was begun. Men have ceased moving about the streets and the town ia silent, a. sharp watch being- kept on the roads to the south and southwest The number of the Mexican federals if there are' any within striking dis tance, is not known. Members of the Red Cross stayed in the town until Pryce advised them to return to Ameri can soil until the danger was over. DEAD TAKEN' TO SAX DIEGO Undertakers from San Diego, Cal., this afternoon removed 10 bodies to the California city for burial. Merchants reopened their stores early upon the promise of General Pryce, leader of the rebel forces, that they would be pro tected. Tourists visited In constantly increasing numbers until ordered out and carried away everything that looked like a souvenir that the rebels would permit them to take. Law and order from the rebel point of view has been re-established and General Pfryee availed himself of the opportunity to talk over a telephone to friends in San Diego. He says that his losses are seven killed and 1" wounded, with the possibility that one I or two of the wounded may die. A strict guard is being maintained I FRANCESCO I. MADESQ JR. I ♦ -————— — ;. ■ ..-»■ night and day. for disquieting- rumors reached the rebels of an advance from Mexican by Colonel Mayot and his 100 Mexican troops, of an advance, from Ensenada of about ISO soldiers and volunteers and of a landing by the men of the Mexican gunboat Guerrero at Point of Rocks, due west from Tijuana on the coast LEADER DKMES LOOTING At noon today General Pryce sai>l there was no truth in the report that a force of ]ftO federals was encamped at Oupee's ranch, 25 miles southeast of Tijuana. He denied that men Of hifl band stood at the, doors of business houses In Tijuana and charged tourists and sightseers $1 each for admission with permission to carry away as many goods as they saw fit. He declared his men had not looted the stores and that he would not permit them to do so. Residents of Tijuana Bay otherwise. They say that Senor Savin, owner of the biggest store In Tijuana, protested without avail to General Pryce. The date of the movement against Ensenada is not known. General Pryce saJd this morning that Knsenada was the next objective point of his fore* and added that, he could not for obvious reasons say when his force would leave Tijuana to march to Kn senada. He said, however, that a heavy guard would be left at Tijuana when the. march was begun and that the town would be held at all costs. It is evident that General Pryce Is anxious to learn whether Colonel | and his force have left the Colorado river with the intention of attacking Tijuana or getting between Ensenada and Tijuana. Colonel Mayot's force is one that greatly outnumbers the rebels, and from the cautious inquiries made by rebels, of visitors today and the. eagerr^es» u with which they scanned newspapers it was plain that the move ments of ColonjH Mayot and his force are of great interest. pAPITAL IS NEXT OBJECTIVE POINT Speculation in "Washington As to Effect of Juarez Fall WASHINGTON, May 10.— News of the fall of Juarez came to official Washing ton from various sources—from the secret service agents of the department of Justice, who have been watching the border; from the collector of customs In El Paso, and from the signal service men of the army. The news of Madero's victory will sprpad rapidly throughout Mexico and without doubt recruits will swarm into his camp. Logically, with heavy rein forcements, his next move wl\l be a march on the capital Itself, incidentally stopping to besiege and capture the cities in his path. There will be one formidable obstacle to such a campaign, the difficulty of arming and supplying with ammunition i Madero's augmented forces. He can j scarcely obtain these supplies from Texas, for the American administration holds to Its decision that arms ca-n not ho permitted to go to the rebels across the line before recognition of the bel ligerency of the insurrectos. QUESTION OF RECOGNITION The question of recognition of his belligerency assumes the first degree of importance to Madero and without doubt, through Senor Vasconcellos, the acting head of the Junta here, an effort may be expected to secure it from the state department. Indications are that such a request wiH not be granted, for the present at least. There is this objection: By that act the Diaz government would be relieved of all pecuniary responsibility for dam age Inflicted upon Americans by rebels. Another consideration is that it would oblige the government to treat the Dlas government precisely as it does the rebels in the matter of deny ing them the right to import arms and munitions of war and would subject American goods entering Mexico to seizure as contraband. MUST RECOGNIZE CONTROL. To what extent Madero has benefited by the capture of Juarez in changing his status in the eye of international law, the officials here are not disposed to say. But, offhand, it is said the United States will be obliged to recog nize his do facto control of Juarez, an international port of entry. In the end he will be able to receive merchandise through his custom house and collect tariff taxes. It is true that when Aqua Prieta was in possession of the rebels the United State* custom house in Douglas was closed by the collector, preventing the exchange of goods. It is admitted that had the rebel oc cupation continued a few days longer that action of the collector, which was not directed from Washington, would have been disavowed and trade rela tions between the two towns would have been re-established.

Stahl. legislative agent of the farmers' na tional congress, announced today that the alliance, which has member* in nearly all the important farming states, would oppose reciprocity with Canada. "Before taking a stand on.the Cana dian reciprocity agreement." Stall 1 said, "the farmers' national congress has taken time to investigate all the in dustrial and economic conditions. "There can be no doubt that the Canadian trade agreement would in jure millions, of our farmers. The prices of grains and farm "a^Jmals are much less than a year ago. This re duction means, not that the profits of the farmers have been reduced by so much, but that nearly all have been wiped out. "The price of hogs on-the Illinois or lowa farm in the last 30 days has been only 60 per cent of the price in the same period of 1910. but the prices of meats to the city consumer are nearly as high as then. The farmer is not the one to strike at because of high prices of foodstuffs to city ■ con sumers, i "The proposed agreement with Can ada Is unfair and Inequitable. i "It will hurt our farmers seriously. And what injures the farmers will lead to injury others." The farmers' national congress is composed of about 6,000 delegates, ap pointed by the state governors on the recommendation of agricultural organ izations of the various states.

A conscientious, hard working: and successful clergyman writes: "I am glad to bear testimony to the pleasure and increased measure of efficiency and health that have come to me from adopting Grape-Nuts food as one of my articles of diet. "For several years I was much dis tressed during the early part of each day by indigestion. My breakfast seemed to turn sour and failed to di gest. After dinner the headache and other symptoms following the break fast would wear away, only to return, however, next morning. ■Having heard of Grape-Nuts food, I finally concluded to give it a trial. I made my breakfast of Grape-Nuts with cream, toast and Postum. The result was surprising in improved health and total absence of the distress that had for so long a time followed the morning meal. "My digestion became once more sat isfactory, the headaches ceased and the old feeling of energy returned. Since that time I have always had Grape- Nuts food on my breakfast table.

Worocn find frequent washing of the head hardens the scalp and makes the hair brittle, straggly and thin. "Dry shampooing exercises the scalp and invigorates the hair follicles and when this condition exists the right amount of oil is fed the delicate tissues and hair roots and the hair takes on new life. "The best dry shampoo powder is made by mixing 4 ounces of orris root with 4 ounces of therox.
