Naco, Ariz., Official Sug
gests Way to End Firing
Into United States.
Naco Ariz., Dec. 5. Coroner E. A.
Folsom, in a telegram to governor G.
W P'Hunt, Friday, suggested a moans
nf ending tne wuui i......B
soldiers and civilians on American soil
bv buUeS land shells fired by the hos
tile forces at Naco. Sonora. He would
, .. v,a fire.
In his message, coroner Folsom said: .
"There is a rernedy for this state of i
affairs which can be administered
".i .1 without Invasion of for- '
eien territory. It is no more an act of
wf? to fire into Mexico tha for
Mexicans to fire into the United States.
Our guns have the longer range and
by returning this fire, we could force
the immediate withdrawal of the of
fenders." ... '
Won't Hold Inijnests.
The coroner's telegram was inspired
by the killing of one and the wounding
of two more persons on American soil
Friday. He appealed to the .governor
for action, and refused to hold inquests
over the bodies of those killed, because
of the danger to the coroner's jurymen.
Hunt HcneiTfi Appeal.
Governor Hunt replied he had made
another appeal to the state department
for the protection of noncombatants in
Arizona from Mexican fire.
The toll of three from the Mexican
fire Friday included Antonio Brace
.monte. a Mexican teamster who was
shot through the heart and killed Tvhlle
he was at work in front of the United
States postoffice here, and private John
Miller of the 10th U. & cavalry, who
was shot in the breast while near the
border patrol camp.
47 Have Been Shot.
This makes a total of 47 persons hit
by the Mexican fire during the siege of
Naco, Sonora, begun two months ago
by governor Maytorena with his Villa
troops. The besieged, the Carranza
forces or Gen. Hill, have suffered less
in casualties since Nov. 18 than have
the noncombatants in Naco, Ariz.
Coroner Folsom's message to the
governor reviews the previous appeals
made by Naco citizens. Some time
ago committee asked the gover
nor for permission to protect the
border with a band of 500 cowboys re
placing the federal troops on the bor
der patrol. This permission was re
fused and governor Hunt took the mat
ter up with secretary Bryan and the
Fhe Shot! President Pleased.
In commenting upon the -result of
this appeal, the message says:
"There has been absolutely no Im
provement In the situation. In fact
American prestige has sunk to such
a degree that a United States customs
house has become a favorite target for
the cannon of the attacking forces. One
day when five persons were shot in
Naco the newspapers here printed the
statement that president Wilson was
much pleased with conditions in Mexi
co." Eighteen Injured Are American.
Of the 47 persons hit by the Mexican
fire, IS were Americans and 29 Mexi
cans. Fourteen were American soldiers.
Five of the 47 are dead, one is blind
and two are in a dangerous condition.
Two days ago Col. C. A. P. Hatfield,
commanding the border patrol, sent a
warning to Maytorena that the firing
