"We heard of a fight at Madera as i bad a one as they had at Gomez. They I said Madera had been taken. They ' sent 25 rurales, poor fellows. "We heard that 300 troops sent down to Parral had been killed as fast as they got off the train. Instead of stopping cut of town and marching up, they ran. right into the city and were killed like a lot of sheep. Everybody seem ed to think that Chihuahua would be stormed next, and it looked thit way all right. "We heard lhat they had shot the chief of police at-Parral, shot him all full of holes. Everybody Armed at Jimenez. "At Jimenez they had bought up all the guns, and were distributing them. Even the porters in the hotels were given arms. They said, 'here is a gun, now fight for your home. I could have got one if I had wanted it. They would take your name and deliver the rifle. They seemed to think that the people would fight against the revolu tionists, but it didn't look that way any place else, did it Promising Soldiers Promotions. "Talk about the spirit of the thing: It was general; everybody was either excited or frightened. The govern ment officials were promising advance ment If they fought well. But the revo lutionists had got in -first. Somebody had played traitor, it semed. I saw a translation of a circular which had been distributed among the troops. It was signed by Francisco I. Madero, i and said that the soldiers were noth ing but slaves, and asked them to turn before it was too late. On the bottom of the paper was a coupon. If that j coupon was torn off and returned It i signified that the men would fight against the government. The circular cited the revolt in Porfugal and Tur key, and warned the revolutionists not to harm Americans. "They are our friends it said, 'although they have received the best from the govern ment. Every circular was numbered." Mr. Sprenger was in Mexico City at the time of the anti-American dem onstration. He said he was spat upon, and a .student and an agitator killed.

LEAVE BUSINESS TO GET OUT OP MEXICO .Chihuahua Merchants Eeach El Paso and Confirm Reports of Trouble. That the trouble in Mexico is seri ous, is believed by Primitivo Enrlques and Louis Estrada, two Chihuahua merchants, who arrived in El, Paso Tuesday morning with their families?, over the National railways. Both are endeavoring to secure houses in El Paso and have announced their inten tion .of remaining In the United States until the trouble is over. The hasty exit from Mexico was due, Mr. Estrada said, to the effort of army officials to enlist himself and partner. Upon their refusal, a com pany of rurales was sent, but the Chi huahua merchants left the city before their arrival. Estrada states that he and his partner are members of a Ri fle club in Chihuahua and that an effort is being made to force all the members of the club into the regular army. Estrada confirms the report that a tralnload of soldiers left Chihuahua Monday afternoon for Parral, as a re sult of the serious trouble there. Estrada also states that a telegraph operator at Chihuahua told him that a report had gone over the wires that Ro dolfo Valles, the mayor of Parral, had been seriously wounded and was ex pected to die.
