IS SEIZED AT BRIDGE
Las Varas Sonora Mexico July 25. (By way of Douglas Ariz. by Courier
July 30.) Suffering hardships akin to those of Napoleon and his soldiers in cross-
ing the Alps the Mexican federal column of Gen. Sanjines has crossed the Sierra
Madres the Mexican Alps and is now within 50 miles of Casas Grandes the rebel
capital of Sonora. The column left Agua Prieta Sonora and traveled Southeast.
It is now at Las Varag on the eastern slope of the continental divide. Gen.
Blanco with 500 federals is at Ojitos 20 miles away on the ranch owned byj
admiral Lord Charles Beresford of England.
Only a small detachment of federals was left behind Gen. Sanjines at Colonia
Oaxaca with packtrains. All the federals that could be mustered in northern
Sonora. are now here ready to march to Qjitos for mobilization and then trt
advance to Casas Grandes the rebel capitaL The expected reinforcements from!
southern Sonora for the Sanjines command did not materialize. The advance of
the rebel column of Gen. Antonio Rojas into southern Sonora through Dolores
made it necessary to retain these troops in the south. For several days a com-
mand of 300 rebels has kept in touch with the federals of Gen. Sanjines's column
apparently feeling out his strength. Some of the federal officers believe the rebels are
too strong for the federals and that it was a mistake of the war department to
send the column into Chihuahua without reinforcements.
The trip over the mountains was accompanied by many severe hardships.
The two cannon had to be taken apart and dragged by mules and at times soldiers
had to lift the eannon over rocks in the trail progressing but a few feet at a time.
Gen. Sanjines will not remain here any longer than necessary to rest his men.
He will move forward for Ojitos or Casas Grandes at once.
(The rebels several hundred strong with cannon and ranid fire puns left Casas
Grandes Saturday for Ojitos having heard that Gen. Blanco was there. It seems
probable that a battle may have been fought as the rebels had but 50 miles to
traverse to reach the point at which the federals were to rendezvous. Editor).

Felix R Gutierrez the rebel provis-
ional governor of the state of Chi-
huahua Is missing and It Is thought
he Is In El Paso although rebels say
that he Is 111 In Juarez. His baggage
was seized by customs officers at the
Santa Fe bridge Tuesday morning as
it was being imported to the United
States by a Mexican giving his name
as Martinez. On Investigation by the
custom officers it was found that
the luggage which consisted of hand
baggage belonged without doubt to
Felix R. Gutierrez the provisional
governor of Chihuahua as clothing In
It showed It was his and there were
many important documents In the bag-
gage belonging to him. The baggage
Is still being held by the United
States customs department.
Say Governor la 111.
For several days Gutierrez has been
absent .from his office In Juarez and
the announcement was made that he I
was 111. Instead It Is believed that he
has left the rebels entirely and is pos-
siDiy in mi faso at tue present time.
When the rebels first moved their
capital from Chihuahua to Juarez
several weeks ago a brother of the
provisional governor who lives In
Mexico City visited Juarez and tried
in every way It is said to induce his
brother to leave the rebel cause and
retire from politics. He did not suc-
ceed at the time In accomplishing this
and returned to Mexico City. Now
however since Gutierrez has been
missing. It is believed the brother's
visit has borne fruit The brother of
the governor Is said to be a Maderlsta
Sccretnry of State Mlnslns.
Jose Maria Ponce de Leon the pro-
visional secretary of state has also
been an absentee from the offices of
the department In the Juarez customs
house and he too Is believed to he
among the missing rebel officials.
Nearly all of the rebel state legis-
lative members remain In Juarez.

who asserts that his name is on the

come to earth for the purpose of saving
the republic of Mexico and annexing
it to the United States. So he wrote
chief of police I. N. Davis in a letter
delivered to the chief Monday.
His letter follows: "Please tell those
men who are fighting the Mexican gov-
ernment to hoist the Stars and Stripes;
that I am the man that comes to the
earth to save my fellow man from the
devil's grasping hand and to annex

"I believe that the cause of the Mex-

His appeals choked with many sobs.
Enrique Bowman sr.. a prominent busi-
ness man and Mormon church dignitary
qt the colonies Juarez and Dublan told
his story the story of the suffering
Americans in Mexico before a gather-
ing of EI Paso business men and city
officials In the chamber of commerce
Monday afternoon. The meeting was
called to see what could be done to
assist In the care of the hundreds of
Mormon women and children refugees
who are In El Paso. A committee of El
Pasoans was chosen by alderman Wal-
ter S. Clayton who presided orer the
meeting to assist Mr. Bowman In every
"We do not ask charity" said Bow-
man. "We are only en year hospitality.
We have been notified by the church
officials at Salt Lake City to draw on
them for any needed funds. We have
left everything we have behind and be-
ing an agricultural people come with
little money. But we slsk no charity. We
only thank you for your offers of as-
sistance. "We have suffered Inconveniences
and Indignities and loss through the
Madero revolution. Our cattle were
killed and we bad no claim against
the government for the loss. But the
condition has not become intolerable
until now." Here the speaker's voice
broke and the big bearded man wept
unabashed as he tried to tell of the
wrongs his people had suffered and
Why resistance had not been offered.
He told of the coming of Salaaar of
how the rebel soldiers ride on the side-
walks of the -Mormon settlements "and
we take the streets." "If it had not
been for the women and children we
could have killed many of them. But
we held ourselves and waited. They
are insulting and offensive in their
conduct and I myself have endured
"Up to Saturday morning all sorts
of guarantees had been given us. Then
all were removed. Mr. Romney an eo-
ciesiasucai leaaer ana myseit were
called to see Gen. Salazar. He told us
all guarantees would be removed; that
we must give up our arms. We offered
all sorts of inducements property and
everything to only let us keep our
aims to protect ourselves against ma-
rauders. He refused. He always re-
ferred to Taft never the united States
and was very bitter. He said he In
tended to force intervention.
"Mr. Romney made a strong talk but
it was no use. We were allowed to go
with an armed guard of about 30
mounted men following us. What
could we do? Our people were in the
fields scattered here and there. Some-
thing had to be done at once. All we
could collect was a group of some 15
to 20 of U3 and we decided to give .up
the arms rather than endanger the
lives of our women and children. We
could have fought but ." and again
the voice broke and the tears came as
the thought of what the exodus means
to his people came over him with hew
In speaking of the Interview with
Salazar Mr. Bowman said that the rebel
leader declared that It was Orozco s
stand that the United States govern-
ment had hurt the rebel cause more
than the Madero government "They
have prevented us trom securing am-
munition across the border while al-
lowing the Maderistas to recruit men
lu their "cuartels' In El Paso and
Douglas." Bowman quoted Salazar as
saying. "And they search our women
on the international border. The
Americans call us bandits and we llvj

SENT TO ARIZONA
Mormons in Gila and Salt
River Valleys to
Care For Many.
Mormon refugees are to be sent to the
Gila and Salt River valleys of Arizona
where they will be cared for by the
Mormons living in these valleys until
the Mexican trouble Is over. A. W.
Ivins apostle of the Mormon church
who Is In El PasO says that he Is now
in communication with the railroads In
order to get a low rate for the colon-
ists who will be sent to Arizona. He
says that the Arizona Mormons have
agreed to take 690 or more of the Mex-
ican colonists providing they can be
sent to them at their homes In the two
valleys. The railroads have asked their
general officers for advice and for a
icduced rate for the refugees.
A committee of Mormon officials and
the committee appointed by the cham-
ber of commerce have been at work
getting vacant houses where the refu-
gees can be housed until they can be
sent to friends in other places or can
return to Mexico. There were more
than 9M men women and children who
slept To the stockade dn Magoffin ave-
nuft Monday night Mr. Ivins says. The
occupants at the delayed train were
taken to the temporary camp and pro-
vided for Monday night Another train
is expected tonight and these will also
be taken there until they can be better
"We greatly appreciate all that has
been done for our people." Mr. Ivins
said Tuesday. "We have not asked for
assistance and we will take means of
letting the people who have assisted us.
Including the chamber of commerce
know how much what they have done is
appreciated by our people. Should con-
gress see fit to assist us. this will be
accepted in the same spirit for many
of our people are without means. They
all have homes land and crops in Mex-
ico but have been unafcle to realize
anything on these and I have found It
necessary to supply them with funds i
from my private resources. j
. "I have heard nothing definite from
the colonies today. The men who came j
out on the train last night said that the i
rebels had gone through the stores and i

Douglas Ariz. July 38. Douglas is
stirred with indignation by the offer
of senor Antonio Lozano Mexican
consul at Laredo and special com-

Lozano has advised the relatives of
those killed and all injured in the bat-
tle of Agua Prieta to call at the of-
fices of Rienardson and Doan and re-
ceive $1060 for deaths and $300 for in-
juries. Lozano in a& interview in ex-
tenuation of the cheapness of his esti-
mate of the worth of life said the
United States set the example paying
claims for the death of Mexican citi-
zens but unable to state the incident
