BROWNSVILLE, Tex.. Sept. 13.
One United States trooper was kiUed
and two others wounded, one proba
bly fatally, when a gang of Mexican
bandits early today attacked the
American patrol of seven men at an
Irrigation pumping plant several
miles up the river from this point.
The soldier killed was Private Kraft,
who received a wound through the head.
Private Forney was shot through the
back and la expected to die. Private
Walsh also was wounded, but hla con
dition is not considered serious.
The firing was heard by nearby de
tachments, who located It at the pumping
plant on the Los Indlos project, but as
sistance, which was rushed to the be
leaguered men, came too late to prevent
the casualties. The squad of troopers
was fired upon from the darkness by a
gang estimated at forty. It Is thought
that the bandlta have crossed Into Mexico.
