EL PASO. Tox., Nov. lB.-Cludad
Juarez, the most Important northern port
of entry In Mexico, was captured by con
stltutionallBta under Generals Pancho
Villa and Maclovlo Ilerrera early this
mornlnic with small loss on either side.
The occupation of Juarez by rebels began
at 2:S0 o'clock, after tho men under
Villa and ilerrera had reached tho town
In trains thought to be carrying federal
soldiers to the garrison. The rebels de
trained, undiscovered, placed their artil
lery and had everything In readiness to
battle before the word was given to flro
on the federal garrison. At the first vol
ley the astounded government troops were
nucembled and returned the fire, engag
ing In a battle which lasted two hours.
Bullots foil thick in Kl Paso and all
the residents here were awakened by the
sound of heavy artillery firing. Amer
icans were kept from the danger zone
y the detachment 6f the United States
Fifteenth cavalry on patrol duty here
unded Major Mltchlc.
The formal surrender of the city to the
constitutionalists was at S o'clock, when
the federal commander threw himself and
his soldiers upon the mercy of the vic
torious rebels. Immediately bands began
playing on tho streets and the town rang
with "Vivas" for the conquerors.
Surprise Is Complete.
It was by one of the cleverest strategies
In the history of Mexico that Juarez was
taken. General Villa, with General Iler
rera; wcro at Chihuahua City, Thursday,
reported to be attacking that town. Fed
eral troops were rushed to the reinforce
maX of the. Chihuahua, garrison, but
vijl never Mallr PUbe4 his attack there..
By prearrangemtnt, trains were, made
ready to, convey his amy Into Juarez
last ..night,, while a federal officer la
northern. Mexico . leileTed him td be ex
erting every energy to take the town of
'Uo&Tlng a email force of men tiiere, he
took more 'than 800 of hi troops on bdard
trains which reached Juarez at tho
time a federal troops train was expected.
Not once was he challenged by federals,
who little dreamed that rebels were
within a hundred miles or more.
Under cover of darkness the rebels sur
rounded the town on all sides savo the
river frpntf that next to the American
border and a concerted attack was made
with the artillery dolr.g much of the
work. The federals were so completely
demoralised by the suddenness and un
expectedness of tho attack that tbey of
fered no serious resistance.
Colonel Cauo, spokesman for the rebels,
told the Associated Press this morning
that he bad no Idea of. the number killed
or wounded on cither sides, and this could
be detennlned only after daylight. He
said he did not believe the loss was heavy
on either Bides. It was reported, through
unverified, that General Francisco Castro,
commanding the federal garrison, l)ad
One American Killed.
One American was killed during the
fighting in Juarez, according to reports
lecelv'ed here at S o'clock. Charles
Sergorson, an automobile man of Kl
Paso, was killed In his oar.
Fighting was resumed at 7 o'clock near
tho Juarez race track and for half an
hour fleeing federals engaged constitu
tionalists who were pursuing them.
Early today General Francisco Castro,
commander of tho federal garrison at
Juarez, was missing. Despite the earlier
report that he had been shot, he was not
found among the dead or wounded and
rebels expressed the belief that he had
escaped -from the city.
Major Cervero Maresa, commanding the
constitutionalist detachment guarding the
international bridge, placed the total num
ber killed In Juarez at twenty-ono, seven
teen federals and four constitutionalists.
Three thousand constitutionalist troops
participated In the capture. A troop train
was made ready early today to be sent
to Sauz to bring in the S.00O or more con
stitutionalists who stopped there.
TWO OTIIKfl CITIES ATTACKED

maintain unaltered his dignified attltudo
Tills statement made at the national
palace today appears to cast extreme
doubt on an renewal of the negotiations
between Mexico and the Unltod States,
according to the view taken by well In
formed persons here. They declare that
it tends to substantiate the belief that
no hope is left of an amicable adjust

American embassy up to 10 o'clock this
morning that Genoral Huerta had mani
fested any desire to accede to tho Amer

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15,-The statement
from Provisional President Huerta that
he Joined General Carranza in repudiating
mediation in any form by the United
States was read to Secietary Bryan, but
he made no comment. .White house offi
cials likewise were informed, but were
The position that has hitherto been
taken taken on the repudiation by Car
ranza Is that this government neither of
fered nor Intended to offer mediation.
The Washington administration has main
tained merely that it cannot recognlzo
legal or have any International relations
with the government at Mexico City and
has repeatedly pointed out as the solo
pre-requlsltc to American recognition the
elimination of Huerta. Carranza has
merely been asked for insurances that If
the embargo on arms were lifted lie
would give protection to foreigners and
X'resanre from firent Ilrltnln.
The fact that Sir Lionel Carden.
Ish minister to Mexico, Is communicating
to Huerta Intimations of a strong char-
acter that he must eliminate himself In
accordance with the American contention
Is said to bo the development on which
the situation has turned within the last
two days. Refusal to resign or prevent
the new congress from complicating tho
situation by giving oil concessions this;
government would consider Illegal might
mean that the American government
would go forward in its policy of morally
supporting the constitutionalists.
The capture of Juarez by constitution
alists, an Important port through which
munitions of war might be passed for a
vigorous campaign on Chihuahua -and the
large cities to the south, Is expected to
have considerable effect In Mexico City.
The capture of Juarez by Madero In his
rebellion against Porforlo Diaz was the
turning point whicli brought the Diaz re
