Troops Coming to Juarez. If Ik considered nrabable that, fol lowing further immediate search for inis oanan force, im cry uwi will be ordered to Juarez, where they will be divided into troops for border natrnl wort. The presence of CoL Valle. chief oi stair to ijen. dianuei jl isicgrucz in Juarez, is taken by many to indi cate the speedy arrival of the cav alrv in Juarez, the belief being that he "has been sent to superintend the placing of the border guard. Army officers in Juarez recently expressea the belief that the rapid decline of bandit power is the result of b strenuous campaign inaugurated by Gen. DIeguez. Although it has not been officially announced it ts generally known that the federal troops have been ordered to show the bandits no mercy but to use every means to exterminate them. Gen. megurs anpporxea. "Gen. Dieeruez has the hearty co operation of every officer and man in his district," said one officer in Juarez. "The recent mutiny at Chi huahua was the outbreak of a rem nant of disloyal officers who have been dissatisfied for some time with the general tightening up of army discipline In Mexico. They were hoDelesslv in the minority, however. and the outbreak was not nearly so serious as was at first reported. There was not a time when the fed erals were not in complete control of the situation. It ts close coopera tion and the general business like nature of the camDaiirn that has re sulted in breaking bandit power. We have nothing of a serious nature to fear from the bandits nereaner. Enifano Holguin. a bandit leader who for some time has been oper ating independent of Villa in south ern Chihuahua, has thus far not re plied to the federal offer of amnesty. Following his formal request tor a pardon to the authorities in Juarez, a rider was dispatched with word that he would be granted a full par don o- ncondition that he come to Juarez and cease his operations in the field. The rider returned without an answer to the message but ' it was expected that In a short time Hol guin would arrive in Juarez in per son. With three weeks passed, how ever the authorities are inclined to believe that Holguin has decided to remain in the mountains, although it is known that he is not at present taking part in any bandit activities.
