Federals Suffer Heavy Loss
When Flanked by
Orozco's Command.
Led by three dead bcb men "offi
cially" reported by the Mexican gov
ernment as killed at Ojinaga Mexican
rebels slaughtered ever 109 federals
near Escaion en "Wednesday, accord
ing to Mexico City dispatches. Jose
Orozco, Lais Terrasas and Francisco
del Toro were officially reported dead
by the Mexican offielals after the bat
tle of OJinaga. Their Identification
had been, made completer the federal
reports said, and -even the location of
their -wounds' -were given. However, It
is again "officially admitted" that
these same dead men led the command
that sloaghtered the federals near Ks
calon on Wednesday." The Mexico City
dispatch telling of the slaHghter, says:
Mexico City, Mci., Oct. 11. In a
battle near Escaion, in -which govera-uf-nt
troops, commanded by Maj. Jose
lello, we.se defeated, the federals lost
100 killed, while all officers, with the
t-xception of one. including Maj. Tello,
were captured by the rebels, who were
commanded by Jose Orosco. cousin of
Uen Pascual Oroseo. Feliz Terrasas,
heche Campos. Luis Fernandez and
I'rancisco del Toro.
Maj. Tello had been ordered to drive
thp rebels froir the Derrame ranch,
where they had been holding coun

JSan Aguistln ranch nearby.
The rebels fought from the ranch
buildings, but as the- federals did not
advance, the pretended to retreat.
Then the federals followed and were
subject d to a heavy fire and were
forced to withdraw, but carried with
them a few prisoners.
Federal Flanked, by Rebels.

Felix Terrazas commanded the reb- .
c If but was reinforced by Cheche Cam
vos. Luis Fernandez and Francisco del
Toro, According to a fugitive the
federals were flanked by the rebels
and nviny of them killed. Maj. Tello
and all but one other officer were cap
tured. The federal dead are estimated at
100 and censored accounts of the en
gagement which reached the capital
sav the rebels' lose was greater.
Predicament is Critical.
Gen. Huerta. who nearly a month
ago was granted leave of absence to
have his eyes treated, has reached the
capital, bringing approximately 1W
men who wer engaged in the northern
tampaign. The rapid shifting of the
government forces throughout the
greater part of the republic, coupled
with an taceasinKaagfeor of new
points from Which. unWUrfNnices are Re

the popular belief that the adminis

In general the country's troubles can
tie classified under three heads a
more or less organised movement in
the north, including the states of So
nora. Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo
Leon and Durango. Gen. Aguilar's re
bellion in Vera Cruz and Puebla, and
a warfare not unlike anarchy in the
Michoacan and Zacatecas, with prowl- j
states of Mexico. Morelos. Guerrero,
iik bands in other states.
Rebel Activity Increases.
The operations of the rebels along
he line of the North Western railroad
in southern. Ghihuahua along the line
of the Central the very territory from
which Orozco's army was driven by
Gen. Hucrta give evidence of the
government's inabiMty to maintain
peace. Gen. Blancuet, after the de
feat of 300 of Caraveo's men Satur
day, announced the departure of the
d.spersed rebels from Chihuahua, but
it since has been reported that bands
are operating in that state and that
there is a notable increase in activi
tv in "Nuevo Leon, adjoining.
The first messages from the north
since October 4 were received from
Jimenez. They told of a general con
centration movement of the insurgents
near Escaion Later came the news
of the engagement
Agallar Evades Federals.
Tn the state of Vera Cru Aguilar
h-s succeeded in evading a serious
ncounter with the federals. A con
siderable force of federals has been
oncentrated on the Mexican railway,
while most of Agullar's army is some
distance to the south. The region
jriving the administration the most
rause for -worry is that overrun by
liands who, for want of a better name,
,nre still styled Zapatistas, though it

entage ever receive orders from the
notorious rebel of Morelos.
The government makes no secret
rf the fact that it would be glad to
arrange peace with Zapata, and it is
asserted that negotiations to that end
p.re under way.
Guerillas Harras Mexico.
The state of Mexico, which prac
tically surrounds the federal district,
is almost covered -with Guerillas, ban
dits and some more completely organ
ized bands of rebels -who raid, sack and
burn in one region today and another
tomorrow. They keep the government
forces hurrying from point to point.

Express Messenger Wounds
One Bandit During Hold
up Near Mena, Ark.
Fort Smith, Ark., Oct. 11. Four ban
dits bungled the holdup of a north
bound Kansas City Southern train be
tween Hatfield and Mena, Ark., early
today. One was "wounded and captured
and the other outlaws escaped, after a
battle with express messenger Merrill
Burgett of Kansas City. Mo., irf which
Burgett exhausted his ammunition and
"was badly beaten.
Burgett shot the robber, who was
discovered an honr later after his com
panions had deserted him. The robber
was conveyed to Mena. Fifty or more
in an armed posse pursued the bandits.
Burgett is in a hospital at Mena.
"Uses Gun as a Clnb.
The train, which is known as No 2,
left Hatfield at 2 oclock. While Bur
gett was working in the car he saw the
bandits clamboring to the side door.
They smashed the glass with their re
volver butts. Burgett sprang to his
most valuable packages and hid them,
despite the hail of bullets which the
bandits poured into the ear.
The packages hidden, Burgett turned
his attention to the invaders. As Bur
gett fired at them, the tobbers reached
through the smashed window and loos
ened the catch which held the door
from the inside. They sprang into the
car, firing on Burgett as they advanced.
The messenger leaped behind baggage
and met the robbers' fire, shot for shot.
'The train had attained & speed ot
about 39 miles an hour and apparently
none of the train or locomotive crew
knew that a holdup was being at
tempted. A last shot fired .by Burgett
before the robbers gained the inside of
the car, wounded one of them.
The fight continued hot, until Bur
getfs cartridges were gone. The rob
bers closed in and overpowered him,
although he gave battle to three, wield
ing the butt of his short shotgun ef
fectively. The bandits .clubbed the
messenger repeatedly, asking: "Where3
that package of money?"
Bleeding, Burgett crouched in a cor
ner of the car -while the robbers brutal
ly beat and kicked him, but did not re
veal the hiding place.
The bandits searched the car care
fully, found nothing, and then applied
the airbrakes.
MeHseager Faints.
By this time the train conductor had
began an Investigation. As the conauc-
jtor came forward with, bfav lantenr. the
robbers fled.
In answer to the conductor's repeal
ed knocking on the gor of the ex
press car Burgett rtrugBied" to his feet,
unlocked the door, then fainted. He
was revived long enough to give a brief
sketch of the attempted holdup and the
train was rushed into Mena. .
A posse was organized to pursue the

Missouri river, which, he says, was
arranged for by W. Bert Brown, of
Kansas City, and James B. McNamara.
"Do you see McGraw in the court

A deficit of approximately ?443fl is
shawn by the audit of the books of
the district clerk's office, according to
J. N. Phillips, who assisted M, M.
Riggs, who has been employed for
some time in making an audit ot those
books. The audit, it was stated, went
f back 14 years, to 1S98, the year tnat
I Ike Alderete. the present district
! clerk, went into that office. The
shortage in this instance, it was stal
ed, was represented by ?12 as jury
fees, and approximately $130 sten
ographer's fees.
Alderete stated Friday morning that
the auditors had gone back to the
time when Escajeda was in office, and
that a part of the audit included fig
ures on his books. He said that in
checking over the auditor's report he
would be able to show where there
were mistakes. "I am holding over
$3000 in trust for the county, which I
will turn oTer to those entitled to it at
the proper time," Alderete stated.
County treasurer J. D. Ponder said
that the district clerk had no right to
hold any money in trust which be-
should be made it was said this might
be done tar showing where the remit
tances had been made, or else in in
stances where the courts had. ordered
the fees remitted. Alderete is being

It was stated that the county com

Chauffeur Tells Court He
Cannot Identify Slayer of
New York, N. Y., Oct 1L Thomas
Ryan, a chauffeur and eye witness of
the murder of Herman Rosenthal, the
gambler, was the first witness called
today In the trial of police lieutenant
Becker. His appearance was a surprise
to the defence, for his name had not
previously figured in the case.
The four gunmen were brought into
court and Ryan was asked to pick out
the man who fired the shot that killed
"Whom did you refer to, of these
four men," asked assistant district at
torney Moss. Ryan appeared fright
ened. "I didn't refer to anybody," he de
clared, shifting his eyes quickly over
the four men.
"Didn't you tell the assistant dis
trict attorney in the prison yesterday
that you were afraid to put -your hand
on- him?" pursued "Mr. Moss.
"I was afraid to, because I might put
my -hand on the wront, man," answered
Ryan In a weak voice.
"Can, you swear," interrupted justice
Goff, "ihat any one of these four men
fired the shot? Look at the prisoners."
Ryan gave a fleeting look at the
four. Every one of the gunmen was
eyeing him.
"I cannot" he replied in a trembling
voice. Ryan was then allowed to go.
He was followed on the stand by
Giovanni Stanich, an eye witness, who
saw three men with revolvers, but was
not sure whether more than one fired
at Rosenthal. Again the four men
were brought into court
Stanich left the witness stand and.
with' hesitation, picked out "Whitey"
Lewis as one of the three. He was un
able .to identify the others.
Jacob and Morris Lnban, the mys- I
terious" witnesses found by district at
torney Whitman in jail at Newark, and
Mrs. -Lillian Rosenthal, widow- ef the J
murdered gambler, were other wit-
waiting to be called.

The governor recovered his voice suf
ficiently to make an extended speech
at a big theater. At the theater the
cheering developed into a prolonged
demonstration and the governor tried
to quiet the crowd to begin his speech.
A noisy element in the gallery con
tinued to shout
"Put them out. put them out," pro
tested voices in the balconies.
"No. don't put anybody out" said the
governor quickly and the crowd gradu
ally quieted itself.
Once during the governor's speech a
oice in the gallery called "hurrah for
Teddy." Just as the speaker began to
take up the planks in the Progressive
"Just wait a minute." said the gov
ernor, "and see if you'll feel the same
after I've explained."
The governor then lauded that part
of the Progressive platform that ad

forms, but declared that the failure of
the same platform to condemn monopo

favor of tariff reform made it neces

A NUMBER of subscribers hjAe asked The Herald to take a Straw Ballot

races, and ages. Its circulation list is representative of the beet citizenship of the
southwest, in three states and among all parties. Taken as they come, the Straw
Ballots ought to show to a degree the drift of sentiment. Generally speaking, the
various parties are probably represented on The Herald's subscription list in
about the same proportion as they actually are in the region of circulation.
A Straw Ballot taken at the El Paso 'smelter Wednesday resulted in $3 votes
for Roosevelt. 3 for Taft. 24 for Wilson, 2 for Debs, and 1 for the Prohibition
If readers of The Herald will take .the trouble to clip the attached coupon and
return it to The Herald, the votes will be tabulated and the result ought to make
interesting reading. Voters will please check the name of candidate favored, and
sign the coupon, giving also the city of residence. The coupon will appear three
successive days, and voters will kindly refrain from voting more than once.
