Two Hundred of De
Facto Soldiers Are
Killed by Yaquis
Nogales, 'Ariz., July 8. From 200
to 300 Carranza soldiers and camp
followers were massacred by bron
cho Yaquis early this week in lower
Sonora, according to stories told to
day by arrivals from that part of
Mexico. Those of the de facto de
tachment not killed by -gunfire, it is
said, were burned at the stake.
While reports place the number of
dead at 300, conservative estimates
made known disposal of troops near
the scene of the massacre, put the
loss at 200. '
News of the disaster to the Car
ranza force has caused excitement
and unrest among the Yaquis. While
it is known that large numbers of
Yaquis have joined the de facto
army, there has been general disbe
lief that the entire Indian nation, in
cluding the broncho or wild Yaquis
have made peace with the Mexicans.
For that reason the reports of the
massacre generally are credited.
General Estrade has had several
thousand troops in the Yaqui valley
holding back the Yaquis' and it is
believed the opportunity for the re
ported massacre came bout when
Estrade moved his main command
north, to Hermosillo and Magdelana
