CASAS GRANDES. Mex., July 5.
Rebels under General Salaxar, command
ing the vanguard of the insurrecto army,
have begun to terrorize this region. Ten
sion among the Americans and foreigners
was increased today with the imprison
ment of C.E. Hollingsworth, manager of
the general store of Kettlesen & Degetau
here, when he refused to give the rebels
supplies. They looted the store.
EL PASO, Mex., July l.-Organlzed
revolution In Mexico, in so far as It simu
lated a military campaign ot concen
trated forces, was by today's movement
of the rebel army showed to have ended
and in its place was substituted a guerr
illa warfare, threatening widespread de
vastation in northwestern Mexico.
Five troops trains bore the retreating
Insurrectos from the vicinity of Chihua
hua City to Juarez, opposite here, and
before the day was over It was expected
most of the rebels would be sent south
west from Juarez, a distance of seventy-
five miles, to Caaas Orandes, from which
point It was intended to effect an en
trance to the rich mining state ot Bonora.
Having abandoned Chihuahua to the
federals, the rebels destroyed all
bridges between Bachimba, where the
last battle occurred, and Saues, thirty
miles north of Chihuahua, the small sta
tion at which the rebel outposts are now
gathered. The evacuation ot Chihuahua
means that the zone of rebel control will
be greatly diminished, Juarez being the
only important point that remains.
General Orozco, the rebel cnlef, spent
the night at Saues, but was expected in
Juares today to direct the movements
of the various bands Into .which the
rebel army Is now disintegrating. Juares
at present is the rebel capital, train
loads of archives having been sent there
within the last three days.
Federals Move Army Into gonora.
Though the Invasion of sonora means
a rambling campaign in the' mountains,
the rebels, most of them mountaineers,
believe themselves equal to It The revo
lution In that form, they say, will prove
more vexatious t the government than
an ordinary campaign. To check the rebel
Invasion of Sonora the Mexican govern
ment is moving forces from Agua Prleta
and Western Sonora. Fully 4,000 men are
believed to be under way to Intercept
General Sanjines left Agua Prleta to
day for Frontera, Sonora, to take com
mand of the main column, and while the
forces of General Sanjiee are engaging
the rebels on the state line between Son
ora and Chihuahua, the array ot Gen
eral Huerta la to move up from the city
of Chihuahua along the Mexican North
western railroad toward Cases Grandee
and attack the rebels from the rear.
The next battle, if any occurs, should
be at Cases Grandese. At Juares thore Is
little llkHhood ot a fight as the rebels
plan to withdraw roost of their forces
toward Sonora. -
Reports early were to the effect that
no federals had as yet entered the city
Of Chihuahua, though a detachment of
cavalry under General Rabago was said
to be searing the town.

struck up a national air and as the train
stopped the appearance of Mr. Bryan as
be stepped from the rear pullman waa the
signal for a mighty storm ot cheering.
He was met at the steps of the Pullman
by Governor Aldrich, Fred Shepard and
other members of the committee, and
between the two mentioned was escorted
to an automobile near the station where
the Immense crowd which could' not get
through : the gates again welcomed him
with cheers and shouts. Headed by the
band the procession marched to the Lin
dell hotel where the crowd which had
gathered gave him an ovation second
only to the one received on his first home
When he arose from his automobile to
address the crowd, wbloh must have
numbered not less than 5.000, three cbeera
were given for Mr. Bryan, three for Mrs.
Bryan, who was with him; three for
Wilson and three more tor Wilson and
After beginning his, address, which
luted something over an hour, ,Mr.
Bryan paid a tribute to Mrs. Bryan by
saying that she had stood faithful with
him through sixteen . years of political
fighting and has been bis faithful lieu
tenant in this, his most Important battle
and greatest victory. ,
Mr. Bryan gave a short review of the
Baltimore convention and the Important
part which he took In Its deliberations.
He said that he regretted very much
that . circumstances became such that
he had to go back on Instructions ot his
home people In the support ot a candidate
for the presidency, but that no great
general ever livid, but that at some time
In bis career he found It the only thing
to do to win the battle was to disobey
orders because the fight developed Into a
conditions whereby waa necessary In
order to win the battle.
Many of his references to the fight In
the convention were in a humorous strain
and In consequence his hearers were kept
in good humor in the hour they spent
under the hot rays ot the sun pouring on
the pavement la front of the Llndell.
One reference he made to the Chicago
convention was met with shouts ot laugh'
ter. He said that by some reason as a
newspaper correspondent he was placed
at the end of the reporters' table, where
the delegates In entering the convention
hall had to pass by him, and In every
Instance the Roosevelt men would stop
and tell him that they hoped he would
be nominated at Baltimore, for they
wanted to vote tor him, '"and do you
know," said Mr. Bryan with a smile, (the
Tatt delegates all told me the same
thing), so I knew thst It I was nominated
I waa sure to be elected.
"In all my political fights." said Mr,
Bryan, "this waa the greatest of them
all and' I feet like It was the greatest
victory -of my Ute. I had attended the
Chicago convention and I felt sure that
tt the democratic party would meet the
emergency which existed, and name a
progressive for the nomination for the
presidency that we could count on re
publican votes to help us win the tight,
I was for any progressive as against any
reactionary. While , wa lost the first
skirmish of the fight, that defeat was a
victory for the progressive forces, -for
before the vote had been announced five
minutes hundreds of delegates saw their
Mr. Bryan spoke of the several little
fights which had been caused in the con
vention on account of himself and told
one Incident of where the Missouri banner
had been placed in front of his seat. He
said that be tried to find the chairman of
the Missouri delegation In order to find
out what they meant by it, but he was
conspicuous by his absence.
One interesting Incident which he re
lated was that as he was about to read a
resolution, which, : among other things,
condemned Mr. Taft, "he waa Invited to
another part of the stage to be Introduced
to Mrs. Taft, who was present. He said
that he talked to her a tew moments and
after that had not the heart to read the
resolution, and therefore It was cut out.
He said that while Mr. Marshall, the
vice presidential nominee, had, been a
Parker man, still be was a fine gentle
man and would make a strong addition
to the ticket, as he was a good speaker
and stood , well with the people of his
Jit. Bryan does not seem to feel very
kindly toward tha men of the New York
delegation and In one of bis references
to them said: "Klght after the vote all
the crooks in the convention made their
way to the New York delegation, and
there were several crooks in the conven
tion who were not on the New York delegation.'"":
In closing Mr. Bryan aaldi "One of the
greatest things which I have had to con
tend with In all my political fights is
that people have contended that X was
In politics tor the office. I have now
proven to them that such a statement is
false. I have been fighting tor a princi
ple only, and now that I have won I
feel that I have achieved the greatest
victory ot my whole political Ute. Still,
I am not responsible wholly for this vic
tory at Baltimore. The progressive water
waa there and all that was necessary
was to turn on the water. I happened to
know where the faucet was and I turned
It on." "
Mr. Bryan left Immediately after his
speech for the Commoner office and from
there took the afternoon train for Kan
sas City, where he is billed , for an ad
dress. .... x ' ' . ,
