Revolutionists Will Soon Have to

plenish Their Provisions and Walt
For More Ammunition Refugees
Will Be Permitted to Cross the
Border Line.
Presidio, Tex., Jan. 3. For four
days and five nights the battle of
Ojinaga has raged between Mexican
rebels and federals without definite,
result. Tho federals still hold all the
ground they had when tho rebels
made the first attack, with tho ex
ception of a few outposts. Tho fight
ing continues, between artillerymen
principally, and at a distance.
Tho general opinion is that if the
federals' ammunition holds out tho
rcbols crtn not take the town, and
that within a few hours tho rebels
will havo to fall back to Mula Pass
to replenish their provisions, get
wator and wait for more ammunition.
The resistance of the federals has
been spirited and successful to a sur
prising degree. Every time the long
lino of rebels has charged tho fed
eral stronghold they have been' com
pelled to fall back.
Tho rebels keep shelling tho town
with their cannon, but do little ap
parent damage. The rebels killed and
wounded so far will greatly exceed
the federal loss. Tho federals admit
only about half a hundred killed.
Tho order of Secretary of War Gar
rison to permit soldiers of either
army to remain on tho American sldo
of the line if they desert from the
fighting forces and surrender thoL'
arms to tho American troops has re
lieved the tensity of tho situation
considerably. Ample attention has
boon given all the wounded who havo
been able to reach this side of tho
river. Ited Cross physicians and
male nurses havo placed the wound
ed In tho littlo Catholic church at
Presidio and aro caring for them.

Gulfport, Miss., Jan. 3. President

coming ashore at Pass Christian and
making his promised "Importnnt re

rary Whlto Houso, tho president
boarded tho revenue cutter Winona
and sailed out into tho Gulf of Mox
lco, where ho boarded tho United
States scout cruiser Chester, which
had transported Mr. Llnd from Vera
Cruz Tho conference was held In
the admiral's cabin of tho Chester.
