Tho account sent out by tho Guatemalan authorities was to the effect that Enquez was one of the most prominent conservative candidates foi the presidency, organized a revolt against the government, was defeated and shot as a traitor. Widely different is tho re port from the opponents of President Barillas. It is alleged by them thai Barillas bore a special grudo against Enquez and ho issued a secret order that he bo shot under tho pretext that ho was at the head of a lovolutionary faction. The two brothers of Enquez, how over, weie informed of what had beon none niiii realizing tliat there was no time to be lost, fled and joined him.
