Fl Paso, Jt.ne 29 F.I Correo, the conservative daily Mexican newspaper of Chihuahua, in its issue yesterday morning, which arried here last night, has a story that an army of a strength variously estimated at from Unto to 7ooo men is marching on Tor reon, one of the richest cities in the state of Coahuila. The story, after reviewing the at tack on Viesca tells of reported at tempts to rob the pay tram of the Mexican Central railroad, and says that the country around Torreon. which is so closely settled that there are stations about every four kilo meters, is swarming with armed men, who appear at the railroad stations with guns and cartridge belts. "These same reports," says F.I Cor reo, "say that three bridges on the railroad between Parass and Torreon have been burned, probably with the object of impeding the passage of troops into Torreon. The incendiaries also probably selected Torreon for invasion because they considered it a rich city to loot. Among the re ports that we have heard is one w hich says that about 40(10 armed men, near ly all of whom are inhabitants of ranches, are said to have passed Homos, in the state of Coahuila. on the Coahuila & Pacific railroad, about 6.1 kilometers from Torreon. "Whether the movement is directed against the government of Coahuila or against the federal government, no one is able to say. It is generally supposed the movement is not against the state, but against the federal gov ernment. One version says the revo lution is wholly against the state of Coahuila, that the governor is not ac ceptable to the people of that state, r.nd that he was forced upon them by the president of the republic. 'It is also said that a tram of in fantry has been sent to Torreon from Monterey and a small detachment of cavalry. Torreon, the town named by r.l Correo as the oliject ot attack, is one of the richest towns in the state of Coahuila. There are six banks the Banco Minero de Chuihuahiia, mean ing a branch there; a branch of Banco Nacomal de Mexico; the Banco tie Coahuila; the Banco de N'ueva I. eon, and the Banco de Durango. The Banco I.aguna, recently organized has a capitalisation of $1 500,000 There are about 25.000 inhabitants. DEATH IN TORNADO. Minnesota Twister Kills Seven and Does Immense Damage.

Su prise Government Forces, Raid Ammunition Wagons and Capture Horses Intercepted While Mak: inj Escape and a Desperate and blood Fight Follows. San Antonio, Tex, June 27. Las Vacos. Mexico, directly across the Rio Grande from Del Rio. Tex., yes terday afternoon witnessed its sec ond battle of the day in what may be the opening of a general uprising agnint the administration of Presi dent Diaz. All wires on the Mexican side leading across the river have been cut. At 5:;to yesterday morning a band of 150 revolutionists sJilently stole upon the camp of the Mexican cav alry at Las Vacos and captured all of the horses, as well as making a raid upon the ammunition wagons. They were discovered just as they wete about to leave, and a pitched battle took place. Firing continued until 10:30 A. M. More than aooo ts were tired, and several men were killed. One wounded man made his way across the river to Del Rio, but he tefused to say whether he wai with the government force or the revolutionists. Yesterday afternoon the firing upon the government troops had been re newed, and the sounds of shooting were plainly heard in Del Rio. Where the revolutionists were gath ered is not known, but that the attack upon Las vacos was to follow imme diately upon that made upon Viesca, a town 111 the interior, there is little doubt. Viesca was attacked and captured by the revolutionists last Thursday afternoon, when several were killed and wounded. Del Rio, Tex., wired last night that revolutionists and Mexican regular soldiers came together across the river from that point yesterday; that several on both sides have been killed and two Mexican officers seri ously wounded.
