' San Diego, May 19. The Mexican
government will attempt to extradite
General Pryce, the rebel leader of Tla
Juana fame, who was arrested last
night on American soli by American
troops, on a charge of filibustering in
violation ot - tne international boun
dary laws, according to the prediction
of the American consul' today. Pryce
was arrested on telegraphic orders
from Minister DeL&Barra and Mexi
can sympathizers will attempt , to se
cure a return on a habeas corpus. He
is confined at Fort Rosecranz.
John Kenneth .Turner, the author,
and Attorney E. E. Kirk, representing
the anti-Interference league, went to
the foftvto Interview Bryce today.
They are heading a movement for his
. Pryce's L)fe In Danger.
Pryce, when seen ; today "by Kirk.
Bald he would be willing to file charg
es "of false arrest against General
Bliss, commanding the United States
troops. He asserted Bliss hadn't any
right, to hold him, and ihat lie ld not
know on what charge he was arrest
ed. He said he would be back to TiaJ
'Juana inside of 24 hours. Friends of

trump up charges -to hold him until

less he Is given a finger In the peace
pie about to be cut by opposing fac
tions. Figuere says nothing but the
resignation of President Diaz and Ma
dero's ascension to the presidency

will satisfy him. Figuere's men are
Intensely loyal and could, if they wish
ed, make a stubborn fight.
