H.uesca, Spain, Dec. 14.—The
Spanish Government moved swiftly
Sunday to squelch the spirit of re-
volt which flared at Jaca Friday*
Two of the leaders were executed,
after a brief court-martial here, and,
in the meantime Republican and Ex-
tremist leaders over the country
When the rebellion was broken up
Saturday by loyal troops in a sharp
battle near' Ayerbe, two of the men!
captured were Galan and Hernandez,
viewed as the outstanding instiga-
tors of the movement which followed
upon a summer of disorder
Sunday they looked into the rifles
of a firing squad and died bravely.
Closely guarded, the two men
were taken in military trucks from
the courthouse, where they were
tried, to an army warehouse on the
outskirts of the city.
They refused bandages for their
eyes and with firm bearing walked
to the wall before which in a few
seconds they would lie crumbled.
Galan smoked a cigarette calmly
and, made a plea for his comrade,
saying he himself was guilty and de-
served his fate, but Hernandez was
innocent. His plea was rejected and.
the two firing squads of nine men
each loaded their rifles.
Galan’s last act wag to hand his
purse, containing 500 pesetas, to the
officer commanding- the firing
“Give that to the poor,” he said
just before the rifles cracked.
While a number of other rebels
have been tried here and are under
sentence of death, the local opinion
is they may be permitted to live,
since the Government already has
shown a firm hand and because of
numerous petitions may wish to show
In the meantime, it was learned a
third leader, Diaz, died Saturday
night at Jaca when loyal troops en-
tered the town after crushing the
revolutionary army outside.
Diaz, a prominent business man
and avowed Republican, became may-
or of the town when the revolt open-
ed and established headquarters in
the city hall. On the mast overhead
he ran up a flag not seen publicly
in Spain since the short-lived Repub-
lic of sixty years ago—the “Republi-
can Flag,” which bears a bar of pur-
ple in addition to the yellow and red
of the Spanish colors.
Just how Diaz was shot was not
determined definitely, but it was cer-
tain he was not tried by a court-mar-
tial. There was some resistance when
the Government’s troops entered the
town and it was held possible that he
was killed in the ensuing fighting.
At Madrid, meanwhile, strong for-
ces of police and civil guards were
put on the streets as a precaution-
ary measure against any outbreak
which might follow the revolt and
Many arrests were made of sus-
pected persons, while the authorities
acted similarly in Seville, Valencia
Precautions also were taken
against plans for a widespread gen-
eral strike Monday. It was under-
stood that labor leaders in Madrid,
Santander and Bilboa were to meet
Monday to determine whether work-
ers should walk out in protest against
the execution of rebel chieftains.
The little mountain town of Jaca,
where the movement began, was qui-
et Sunday, and the Government for-
ces were in full control. Detachments
of loyal soldiery continued to search
for rebels who escaped after the
conflict, believing that most of them
were attempting to cross the French
Following upon the executions Hu-
esca was placed completely under
military rule and it was announced
that communications with the out-
side world would be severed for the
night after 8 o’clock.
Shops and cafes were closed and
the inhabitants were ordered to re-
main indoors during the night.
Some of the wounded rebels,
brought to hospitals- here after the
