ports. From the Federal vicw|>oinl
the situation may bo summarized ss
Colonel Rsbago,
with 300 men
marched into Juarez at 9:25 tonight,
unmolested by the insurrectoa, and
amid tlie Joyful acclaims of citizens
and soldiers.
Rabago's command repulsed the at­
tack of Oroaoco's force at Bauch today,
with only two dead and six wounded,
inflicting on the insurgent» a loss of
140 killed and wounded. Insurrectoa
reported badly scattered as a result of
the clash.
General Navarro's command, of a
strength unknown, re|>orted marching
to the relief of Juarvz and expected to
arrive tonight or tomorrow.
From the insurrectoa' viewpoint, the
situation stands as follows:
Rabago's command reached Juarvz
tonight, after defeat nt Bauche, in
which they arc reported to have lost
more than 100 men ¡and a »ubstantial
part of their arms and equipment.

Alanis expected to join Ornzoco some
time tonight for an assault u|a>n Jua­

light tomorrow.

The fatal policy of delay having en­

the probabilities of taking that city
are now considered much more remote
than before.
Other reinforcements, in the sha|»e
of General Navarro's column* are en­
route from ('hihuahua and will reach
Juarez tonight or tomorrow, and it is
believer! here that the Federal» will be
able to hold the city, and that know­
ing this, the Insurrectoa will retire.
There is a rumor that the insurrectoa
are near Juarez, but this cannot be

Thia powder, he said, was part of a

maintained, before the dynamite was

The« tempera­

below 45 degrees.
Hudson Maxim, the Inventor, an
authority on explosives, is inclined to
the same belief. Hu agreed that the
after effects of the explosion suggested
gunfmwder rather than dynamite.
"The eight arrests are only a la-gin­

have one of the most attractive and
tameflcial exhibits at the Panama-
Pacific ex|>oeition at San Franciaco.
Plana are now under way, according
to C. H. Willard, one of the directors
of the organization, to this end. Mr.
Willard said:
"Louisiana cannot afford not to have
an exhibit at San Francisco. We have
been put to the test, and we must do
our l>cst in order that thia state have
an adequate representation of its pro­
ducts and resources.
We want to
make the Louisiana exhibit the moat
attractive in the big show. .
“It will be a center of observation
on account of the magnificent efforts
made by our |>«>ple to win the prize.
We have come out of the contest with
honor and with clean hands. We have
won the respect and admiration of the
world for pluck and energy, and every­
one who attenda will want to see what
Louisiana has done.

tiona and the p«>ple generally will
