Men, women' and children, relatives of the imprisoned men, crowded inside the vrlres which had been placed about the enclosure to prevent their entrance, and many moans pierced the r -rut air as the women realized that husbands, brothers or sweethearts were lost. The Southwestern Railroad company placed six bunk cars on a sidetrack near the dump- for the accommodation of those who had lost their homes by the explosion. Thirty-two houses were rendered uninhabitate, the windows being broken and the roofs caved in. The company lineman who last week arrived in Guzman, 7o miles be low Juarez, after temporarily repairing the wires all the way from Pearson, the most southern terminus of traffic on the northern division, reported that he had only seen a few small bands of In surrectionists, and that all was quiet at Pearson.

At that time, only about 50 insurrectos had been seen, and the largest band was that of 23 men who stole the engine and burned the bridges about Guzman. Insursrent Force Grows. But now It appears certain that the insurrectos operating below Juarez have increased materially in numbers or audacity. To attack Casas Grandes with any opposition will require more than a few men. Alsomore men have actually been seen along the road. The band at San Pedro which turned back Walter Charnley and his work train, coming from Pearson to repair the bridges burned below Guzman, numbered between 20 and 30 men. The agent at Sabinal reports that he saw between 80 and 90 mounted men ride south Tuesday night. So it is estimated that the Insurrectionary forces on the Mexico Korth "Western's local division, which a week ago appeared to number no more than 50 men, now must ex ceed 200 men. l Saw a Few Rebels. Superintendent Rutledge, who ar rived in a section of his work train at 5:30 Wednesday afternoon, talked with no insurrectionists, but received communications from them, and saw a few small and scattered bands respect fully following his movements from the foothills. He heard from the agent at San Pedro that the work train com- Iner from the south had been turned back at that point, and returned with out any argument. Charnley was told to "go back and stay back,' and also informed that the operations of the northern work train were known but that superintendent Rutledge would t not be hindered as long as he hauled J no soldiers. The San Pedro agent also sent word to Mr. Rutledge on behalf of the insurrectionists, warning him I not to repair the wires. Telegraph Operator Leads Band. The railway superintendent also re ceived a formal voucher that all dam- . age done to the road would, be "made good" by the revolutionary party. Mr. Rutledge says it was signed by P. G.

"When the train returned to Juarez for supplies, work was nearly completed in rebuilding a bridge 145 feet long, 118 milometers below Juarez. One more small bridge remains before Guzman is reached, and the superin tendent expects to arrive there Thurs day night.

The Candelaria and Xieon mining properties, where many Americans are employed, are located on two sidings which run west of the main line. Both camps are about 30 miles north of Casas Grandes, and not considered in any danger. AGAIN NOEMAL AT LOCAL POSTOFFICE AUCTION SALE Closes Saturday Twenty-five Extra Clerks Let Out and Eegular .
