Instead of compelling the Hermans

which has beon made. With the
heavy casualties caused by the bom

prisoners and a great quantity of war

Bodies of Nine Americans Slain at

They Are Given Military Escort
Adair's Remains Among Them.
Kli PASO, Texas, July 0. Tho
bailies of Captain Cunrlos T. Hovd,
Lieutenant Henry Adair and. seven
troopers of tho Tenth cavalry, killed
at Carrizal, were brought to Kl Paso
today at S:80 a. in. Only the bodies
of the two officers nnd Private Do
wltt Hucker have boon identified.
Klght of the Americans worn ex
humed from n single grave, the un
dertakers who brought back the
bodies said.
The dead had been gathered from
the field of battle and east Into a
ditch. This was then filled up. Cap
tain lloyd, hletitonaut Adair and six
troopers, stripped of their uniforms,
wore mixed ludlscrlmlnatoly In tho
The body of the ninth trooper was
located two miles distant from the
othors. He had boon wounded nud
apparently had dragged himself away
to din in the gravelly waste beyond
the town.

Scones In sharp contrast to thono
of n week ago when the Carrizal
prisoners were brought from Chihua
hua City and turned over to Ceneral
(loorge Hell, Jr., marked tho return
of the Amorlcaii dead. In Jtiaros
the event was scarcoly noticed, while
In Kl I'aso only u few hundred per
sons, quiet and siibduod, replaced the
oheorlug throng that greeted tho 23
troopers of the Tenth.
(Senernl Hell had not oxpocted tho
bodies to be delivered so early In
tho morning, and the Klghth ouvalry,
which had been detailed from Kort
Illlss to act ns an oscort, was not on
hand. An Impromptu guard was
formed, however, from the soldiers
of the Seventh Infantry encamped
near the bridge. Part of these march
ed beside the car while the remain
der stood at attention aa It rolled
off the bridge upon American soil.
Met by Cimilry
Word was Immediately sent to
Fort Illlss and the ICIghth cavalry
was started cityward.
Indifference In Juarex to tho ovnnt
was explainable In the fact that tho
special train bearing the bodies did
not arrive there from Villa Ahumada
until late In the night. Ileforo the
town was woll awako an engine de
tached the car containing the dead
and pushed It to the center of the
International bridge. The Amorlcan
authorities then hitched on an on
glno and completed the transit to tho
Kl Paso side.
Kxamlnation of the bodies showed
tht Captain lloyd was shot through
tho right eye and that Lieutenant
Adalr"s death resulted from a wound
In the breast.
Although the undertaking force
that made the Carrlsal trip was
shown erery courtesy by the Mexl
oun officials, they said the populace
In the vicinity or Villa Ahumada
showed considerable enmity. They
were not hindered In their work,
however, they said.
