Juarez Receives Reinforcements of
Federal Train Derailed But Forces
Proceed and Reach City After
El Paso, Feb. 6.— A t 11:15 p. m.
the exact results of today's develop
ments in the situation about Juarez are
beclouded by numerous conflicting re
ports. From the Federal viewpoint
the situation may be summarized as
marched into Juarez at 9:25 tonight,
unmolested by the insurrectos, and
amid the joyful acclaims o f citizens
Rabago's command repulsed the at
tack of Orozuco’s force at Bauch today,
with only two dead nnd six wounded,
inflicting on the insurgents a loss of
140 killed and wounded. Insurrectos
reported badly scattered as a result of
General Navarro’s command, of a
strength unknown, reported marching
to the relief of Juarez and expected to
arrive tonight or tomorrow.
From the insurrectos’ viewpoint, the
situation stands as follows:
Rabago’s command reached Juarez
tonight, after defeat at Bauche, in
which they are reported to have lost
more than 100 men ¡and a substantial
part of their arms and equipment.
Alania’ rebel force of 600 men in a
fight with 100 Federáis 25 miles east
Alanis expected to join Orozoco some
time tonight for an assault upon Jua
rez, which is scheduled for about day
General Navarro in command o f 700
Federáis, consisting of infantry and
cavalry, left Gallego Friday fur Jua
The fatal policy of delay having en
abled reinforcements to reach Juarez,
the probabilities o f taking that city
are now considered much more remote
Other reinforcements, in the shape
of General Navarro’s column, are en-
route from Chihuahua and will reach
Juarez tonight or tomorrow, and it is
believed here that the Federáis will be
able to hold thefeity, and that know
ing this, the insurrectos wil) retire.
There is a rumor that the insurrectos
are near Juarez, but this cannot be
verified. The net result of the battle
at Bauche today between Orozoco and
Rabago was two killed and five wound
ed among the insurrectos. The Federal
loss cannot be learned, as they carried
their wounded with them.
Oregon is Sure to Gain.
Washington.— No matter what bill
may be passed by congress providing
for .congressional reapportionment,
Oregon will gain a third member of
the house and Washington will gain
two. Idaho, however, will lose out if
the caucus bill ¡is substituted for the
Crumpacker measure, for under the
caucus bill Idaho gets but onejmember,
as at present, whereas the Crumpacker
bill gave Idaho two representatives.

high water and much livestock has

their possessions. It was necessary to
