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

"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."

An attempt by the "Western Union
Telegraph company to secure the use
of a wire over the federal telegraph
lines from Mexico City to El Paso to
connect -with the Denver office of the
Asociated Press has been unavailing.
Officials of the federal lines in Mex

more than enough business to keep
their only line from Mexico City to
Chihuahua fully occupied.
For the first time in 15 years of
operations, the leased wire of the As

.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
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
