GENERAL HERRERA AND
HAVE NOT REVOLTED
Report That They Had Joined Villa Is
Denied by American Consul Letcher
Washington Officials Are Greatly
Relieved on Receiving the News
Washington, March 24.—American Consul Letcher, of
Chihuahua, reported that there is no truth in the reported
revolt by General Luis Herrera and the Carranza garrison
at Chihuahua. Letcher's dispatch reported that Herrera,
command of the defacto troops there, was " loyal to
Carranza." The report is regarded as removing one of
the most menacing features of the Mexican situation.
Although General Funston and General Bell, on the bor
der, received reports, confirming the revolt, which they
believe to be true, Letcher's dispatch is taken by officials
here as confirming the statements of Carranza officials
that no such revolt has occurred.
Major General Funston telegraphed the war depart
ment: "General Herrera, in a telegram to General Ga
vira, strongly denies all reports that he has gone over to
Villa. General Gutierrez, governor of Chihuahua, in a
letter to Gavira, also denies that Herrera has gone
to Villa."
