estates in Chlhau-hua, it was an
nounced at the office of Federal
Judge Fernando Gomezales Medina
in Janrez today. The general and ihis
attorneys entered suit in federal
court in Ja-urez to thwart the at
tempt of the government to parcel
out his vast estate in Chihauhua. The
papers specify the Babicora estate

other holdings of the general, total
ling about six million acres.
The court issued a temporary re
straining order under which the gov
ernment will not be allowed to pro
ceed with the division of the estate.
It was explained that Judge Me
dina was moved by the showing that
former President Porfirio Diaz
awarded Generall Tarrazas his lands
in return for patriotic services for
assisting in the movement to expel
the French under Maxmilian and in
fighting Apaches. The matter will
