H. Y. Tarwater, Publisher. CHEYENNE WELLS - COLORADO U. S. BATTLESHIP GOES TO MEXICO APPEAL OF ENGLAND SENDS AD. MIRAL TO SCENE OF THE REBEL VICTORY. WILL PROTECT ALIENS EAST COAST OIL PORT IS CAP TURED; AMERICANS FLEE TO VERA CRUZ. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Mexico City, July 22. —Tuxpan, a maritime town 145 miles northwest of Vera Cruz, has been captured by reb els under Jose Vaga after a hard fight. In answer to an appeal from the British consular representative, the United States battleship Louisi ana, with Rear Admiral Frank F. Fletcher aboard, sailed from Vera Cruz for Tuxpan under full steam. Tuxpan is situated on a river, five miles from the Gulf of Mexico. It is an oil center, and many Americans and English reside there. If it should become necessary to give armed pro tection Admiral Fletcher would have to land a force, as the Louisiana can not proceed beyond the gulf or mouth of the river. American families are seeking ref uge in Vera Cruz, fearing that anti- America,n riots are sure to follow the demonstrations in honor of the new Japanese minister. Mexican Affairs Alarm Washington. Washington.—Reports of conditions surrounding the Huerta government in Mexico have put administration of ficials in an attitude of keenest ap prehension toward the situation there. Advices which officials believe to be perfectly trustworthy indicate the strife between the Huerta regime and the revolutionary elements is nearing a point where some definite conclusion is to be reached. Information of this situation when permitted to become known was coup pled with the authoritative statement that the United States was making no additional naval or military prepara tions. Reports of an impending col lapse of the Huerta regime are being talked over freely In official circles. Meanwhile President Wilson is anx iously awaiting the coming of Ambas sador Henry Lane Wilson, who is hur rying north from Mexico City to make a first-hand report of conditions. His reports will be compared with those President Wilson has received from other sources. Refusal of foreign consular repre sentatives to hold a parley with Gen eral Urbana, the Mexican revolution ary leader, before his attack on Du rango, is given as the reason for the outrages against residents, irrespec tive of nationality, following the re cent rebel occupancy of the city, ac cording to State Dejartment advices. Money was demanded from the banks and from wealthy citizens. Prices now are very high and United States Consul Hamm fears that there maybe a famine. Transportation facilities in Mexico are in a state of demoraliza tion. More than two hundred bridges have been destroyed between Monte rey and Torreon. The State Depart ment reports that all communication with interior Mexico is cut off. Pleasing, but Embarrassing. Tokio. —Mexico’s demonstrations of friendship are pleasing but embar rassing Japan. It is feared here that they might be misunderstood in the United States and affect the friendly relations with that country. CLOUDBURST IN WYOMING.
