this money came from has also been
guessed with a fair degree of accuracy,
although in the absence of specific
proof, the names of contributing firms
and individuals cannot be mentioned.
Through the medium of forced loans,
confiscation, excessive war taxes and
concessions, lzrge sums of money for
the support of the revolution In the

by Villa and his agents, but the money
represented by this source of supply
accounts for a very small part of the

Nothing short of a congressional ln

the Pearson Interest, not only along
the lines of their railroads, but also
at Madera and Pearson, where the

officials and "ConstitutlonaHjsts" are
very cordial is Indicated by the fact
that the private car of the corporation,
which fs only used by rule by the high

rebel leaders at all times. In several
