YAQUIS SUCCUMBING MANV CASUALTIES POLITICAL RALLY
TO CIVILIZED LIFE: !N MEXICAN STRIKE ENDS IN TRAGEDY
BANDIT TRIBES BEING GRAD-
UALLY SUBDUED, ADVICES TO
MEXICAN CONSUL SAY.
HEAVY FIGHTING AT ORIZABA RE-
PORTED IN DISPATCH TO
Gradually the Yaqul Indians in the State
of Sonora, Mexico, are losing their hunt
ins grounds and other holdings and it is
only a matter of short time before they
will have to submit to the rule of civili-
zation, just as the Indians of the United
States lost their ail and became peaceful,
law a hiding citizens. Mexican Consul
Uonzalo de la Muta has recently received
information from correspondents in Sonora
telling of the gradual work of civilization
that is going on.
Many members of the tribe have already
seen the errors of'their ways and have
joined the (federal forcea when they de-
sire to light. This desire has become loss
pressing each year, until now some of the
most prosperous and most influential cltl
•/.ens of the states are former members of
ihe wild tribes that horrified all Northern
Mexico, Some have taken up farms and
become self sustaining; others have gone
into the mines or to follow other pursuits
that would permit their becoming Inde-
pendent and supporters of law and order
Of the vast numbers reported to be raid-
ing the villages and causing go much
depredation iu Sonora during the past few
weeks, nothing can be learned that veri-
fies the strength of the bandits or "bron-
chos," as they are termed. There is known
to exist a number of small bands in the
Hacatatee Mountains, their strength total-
ing not more than 800 or IM)0, including the
women and children.
The homes of these raiders nre In wild,
out of the way places, where they have tho
natural protection of the mountains, and
are able to protect themselves against
troopB. Their camps are always protected
by lookouts who nre noted as sharpshoot-
ers, and every trail leading to their strong-
holds are set with snares and traps. By
spending the greater part of their time
in the mountains they have been able to
escape complete destruction.
Only by occasional raids, such as those
of the past few weeks, are they able to
sustain themselves. Some, it is true, are
farmers and raise small crops In the moun-
tains, but the amount is not enough to
provide for the whole tribe, nor is there
raised enough bv members of one small
baud to supply their needs. Cattle raising
was once attempted by them, but it is
presumed their greed for fresh meat over-
came their desire to become cattle raisers.
A plan was adoptd by one of the former
governors of the state to capture the wo
men and children of the bands rather than
attempt to wipe the people out entirely.
In llermosillo, the state capital, a school
was erected to care for the wild and illit-
erate Yaqul children, as well as children
of Mexican parentage, who are iu need of
OBRECON FOLLOWERS KILL GIRL
AS THEY MARCH IN THE
CITY OF MEXICO.
Heavy fighting in which many striking
cotton mill workers at Orizaba, Vera Cruz,
Mexico, have been killed and wounded, is |
reported here today in dlspatchea received
from Mexico City by "El Imparcial," a
San Antonio newspaper. Federal troops
have machine guns planted iu church
steeples and on top of cotton factories, but
the situation is still very serious, accord-
ing to the dispatch.
Approximately -'0.000 mill workers are
out on strike, asking for more pay ami
shorter hours. The workmen nre syndi
calizatcd," or unionised, and have asked
aid from the American Federation of
Labor iu carrying on the strike.
Orizaba, which is between Mexico City
and Vera Cruz, is one of the most im-
portant cotton industrial centers in the
republic. The leading mills affected by
the strike Include Kio Blanco, Sau Lo-
renzo, Mlraflores and others.

Private Physician Leave* for llerlln Ac-
count Mmgrr Salary Paid by William,
Ry Associated Press.
AMKRONOKN. Holland, Oct. 20 (De-
layed).—The suite of the former German
Lmperor at Amerongen has been reduced
by five persons as a result of the de-
parture for Berlin of his private physician,
Dr. Foerstner, and family.
It Is the gossip of the village that Dr.
Foerstner found it impossible to support
his familv on the meagre salary in (»er
man marks paid by the former Emperor,
ami that he has returned to general prac-
tice In Berlin. •
A military surgeon, Dr. Jenner, has ar-
rived from Berlin to serve temporarily at
compulsory education. When a capture
of women and children Is made, the women
are Cured for by the state, while the chil-
dren are put in school and taught the rudi-
ments of the domestic arts and agricul-
tural or mechanical pursuits.
This plan Is still in force and the present
governor. Adolfo de la Huerta, is making
special efforts to take all of the women
and children of tin village* by surprise
while the Federal troops are pursuing the
men who have been wreaking mo much
havoc. Reports of successes by the Fed-
eral troops have reached the border, and
it is believed by Mr. de la Mata that with-
in a very short time Governor de la Huerta
will have accomplished his undertaking,

a gentle tear or two.
Harry Adler and Rose Dunbar In their
travesty on hypnotics entitled "A Trav-
