The cause of the abandonment is not certain unless the federal government in-
tends to leave 'the country to the insurrectos and take its troops south to" protect
towns it considers of more importance than the border ports. The abandonment
may be a parjb of the federal government's program to comply with its agreement
with the United' States not to "permit .any more fighting on the border. By leaving
the towns to the insurrectos. it assures compliance with the agreement. v r 5i-f
Douglas Ariz. May 10. The federal garrison at Agua Prieta 750 strong un-

The present garrison at Agua Prieta consists of Ifc.G-atliff A m eiicaiivcuri6
dealer two chinamen and a large-number of empty houses. ;
The town is said to be h eavily mined by the federal government.
.JLnsurrecto leaders at the local junta declare that the rebels will not take Agua
Prieta now although several thousands are in the hills near town. . .
The leaders predict that the departed federals will be-engaged en routes
After the federals got but of Agua Prieta they became engaged in action with
thefebels nine miles west of Agua Prieta in a narrow pass . i : j ''.

One American took 110 pounds from one place and one mine 50 if eet; long was-
unearthed. It contained mu eh dynamite with fuse "and 'caps attached" . . "

Pederals who left filled the trenches and piled- up their shovels picks and all
tools and burjned them. They broke the stocks and otherwise mutilated all the guns
they could not carry. The Americans are collecting these .for souyenirs-but the cus-
toms officers of the United States are seizing them as they cross the line. . .
All federal offices have been closed and abandoned' As orders If or theevacua-
'tion were duplicated to IsTaco many American mining camps will have to close down .
through the suspension of ihe customs service. ' ' -x
Petween Agua Prieta jmd Hermosillo a large' rebel force is concentrated and it
is unlikely that GoL Eeynaldo Diaz and Maj. Lxds Medina Barron -and their forces '
will be able to reach the capital without a big battle. HermosUlo is now surrounded
by a large band of rebels iu eluding 800 Yaqui indians armed with Mauser rifles:
- '" Orders of Withdrawal Sudden. .""'-
The Agua Prieta garrison worked until a late hour last night constructing new
entrenchments. . Toward dawn the. soldiers began .to undothis work filling -up -not
only the new trenches but the old ones left by the insurrectos. The adobe breast-
works .were leveled to the ground and the block-house south of the bull ring was
battered into kindling. The trenching tools were then piled in heaps andburned
and leaving not a man behind the5 garrison began the evacuation at dawn. : ;

7 ' An automobile decorated in. theMeidcan colors has been sent to Madero's camp; to take him triumphantly
It is declared by many witnesses that about 9:30 this morning Gen. Navarro followed by about 75 officers
and men made a .hurried exit down the National Eailway tracks. This indicated to many of the soldiers on
duty that the day had been lost and may have accounted for the retreat which followed shortly after-
Gen. 'Navarro later returned after encountering a large band of insurrectos south of Juarex establishing his
forces at the garrison. f '

the commandant's room at the cuartel. - ' . ' . " " ' " "' ' '' " -1 ' $ ' -- ''
He said he did not know how many were wounded.
The strain of three days' battle has told on the veteran Navarro who lost the battle of Juarea nd is now a
prisoner. He looks tired and much older as if the strain had added years to his already ripe age.1 The old gen-
eral was half reclining and half sitting on pile of bedding in the commander's office in the barracks when a
