Federals So Strong There Now That
Rebels Have no Hope.
El Paso , Tex. , April 5. Charles
Richards and Jesvell Williams , the one
a machinist In Madero , Mexico , shops ,
and the other just completing one

been ordered to proceed to Chlhuahur

is- lory , they have no chance against th

or force within the city. It is not ui
id likely , however , unless the preser
negotiations are speedily developed in
to a truce , that Madero or HOIUO other
rebel chieftain svill endeavor to In
tercept Egula Lls on the march.
NVItli regard to the official announce
ment to this move. It Is considered
by these familiar svlth Mexican strat
