They Went Hunting in the Boeque on the American Side of

Which Mexico Claims Jurisdiction or Whether the Mex-

Marcus N. Geddes and Edward J. McCutcheon were cap-
tured Monday afternoon and are in the juzgado in Juarez.
Each is charged with the offense of armed intervention.
Monday Afternoon they went down in the bosque on the
American side of the river hunting.
At I o'clock Mr. Geddes phoned Mrs. Geddes that they
were leaving for the hunting grounds.
About 6 o'clock County Tax Collector Will I. Watson
brother-in-law of Mr. Geddes was notified by some one over
the telephone that Geddes and McCutcheon had been arrest-
ed by the Mexican rurales on the other side of the river below
No information has come to either Msr. Geddes or her
brother Mr. Watson from either of the two men arrested as
the latter are held incomunicado. Mrs. Geddes was unable to
to Mr. Watson Geddes and McCutcheon having had time
merely to phone her to get into communication with their
families as they were being taken to Juarez.
It is not known whether Geddes and McCutcheon cross-
ed the river a short distance below Washington Park by acci-
dent or whether the Mexicans crossed to the American side
to capture them.
Are Railway Engineers.
Both Mr. Geddes and Mr. McCutcheon are railway en-
gineers. They are in service with the Galveston Harrisburg
& San Antonio Railway company.
Mr. Geddes resides at 3323 Hueco street and Mr. Mc-
Cutcheon at 1 107 East Missouri street.
During the morning Mr. Watson and others have been
seeking information about the captured Americans. Consul
Edwards has been appealed to.
Famines Are Worried.
In the meantime the families of Geddes and McCutcheon
are worried no word having been received from either since
they departed for the hunt Monday afternoon except the
telephone call from the party who passed them as they were
being taken towards Juarez by the rurales late in the after-
noon. The offense charged against them is presumably that of
armed invasion as they carried shot guns.
Consul Edwards Notified.
plish nothing in the way of freeing the prisoners being ad-
vised that the guns in their possession when captured were
Winchester rifles and it would be necessary for them to ex-
plain why such guns were brought across the river.
Friends Moat Gat Busy.
Consul Edwards suggested that it would be well for the
friends of the two Americans who are familiar with the rea-
sons for their crossing the border with such guns should ap-
pear in Juarez to make satisfactory explanations.
Under the circumstances Geddes and McCutcheon if
they had Winchester rifles when arrested instead of shot
guns such as are ordinarily used when hunting Consul Ed-
wards admitted his inability to secure their release-pending
