CITY OP MEXICO. June 27,-Wlld stories
concerning a formidable and serious revo
lutionary outbreak in the northern part
of Mexico were wholly discredited today
by telegraphic reports received from Gov
ernor Cardenas, of the state of Coahulla.
According to these telegraphic advices
which were received by Vice President Cor
ral today, one of the boldest bandit raids
ever attempted In the history of Mexico
was successfully carried out when the town
Vilsca was assaulted and looted yesterday.
The bandits, numbering fifty, all well
armed and mounted, swooped down upon
the town without warning. A feeble resist
ance was made by the police of the plasa.
but after three of them were killed and
three more wounded, the marauders prac
tically had things their own way. They
first proceeded to the jail, releasing all the
Inmates, some Joining the robbers. Th
bandits next headed for the bunk of Nueva
Leon, a branch of the main Institution of
that name, which Is located In Monterey.
They soon overpowered the employes there
and robbed the bank of all the money they
could get. The sum Is not ststed In the
From there the robbers with a whoop
went to the government stamp office, loot
ing it and doing great damage to the post
office. They then turned their attention
to the express office, robbing It. By this
time the whole of the town's population
was terrified. The bandits cut the tele
graph wirea and tore up some railroad
trick. However, before communication wus
Interrupted, word was sent to the statu
capital of the assault.
Governor Miguel Cardenas immediately
reported the raid to the secretary of the
Interior here and dispatched local troops
to the scene. After Imprisoning the murji
clpal officers and further terrifying the in
habitants of the town the bandits got word
that troops were on the way to the scene.
They then prepared to flee. In the morn
ing they left, proceeding via Hacienda
Hornee and the town of Matamoros de la

detachment of troops sent to capture them.
A lively fight ensued. In which one trooper
was killed and several were wounded. One
bandit was captured, but the remainder
escaped and are now in the wilds of the
state of Durango, having crossed the border
betweem Coahulla and that state shortly
after the battle. The captured bandit Is
now In prison In the city of Torreon.
In giving access to the correspondence
containing the above facts to the Associated
Press and In commenting upon the happen
ings. Vice President Corral today aaid:
"For over a score of years the republic
of Mexico has been absolutely free from
bandit raids or uprisings similar to the
disgraceful affair which occurred at Vilsca
yesterday. For that reason we will mete
out strong punishment to these criminals,
In order that the world at large may know
that the days of the bandit in this country
"From private Information which I have
received today I am satisfied that most
of the men concerned in the raid have

who had been Imprisoned, and for that
reason they first attacked the JalL "
