Eight troop trains, which left Jiminez late yesterday under cover of the heaviest fighting of the revolt, were stalled while soldier* attempted to repair the bridge. Between the trains and the temporary safety of Chihuahua City there were seven otner burned bridges, and It was believed the rebel retreat, at least so far as the rail lines were concerned, had been halted. Resort to highways would permit comparatively easy pursuit by federal troops under General Almazan. This officer, whose two day attack on Jiminez culminated late yesterday in almost complete rebel withdrawal from the little town and the most decisive victory of the revolt, reformed his troops hoping to follow and ‘‘exterminate” the rebel army, which has been led personally by the movement’s commander-ln-chlef, General Jose Gonsalo Escobar. It was believed a small rebel rear guard left at Jiminez had abandoned the town dur ing the night also, permitting its complete occupation by federals At Chapultepec Castle, residence of President Porte* GU. it was announced; “The Woody battle which] has been foi *hi during two days at< Jiminez has resulted in the most brl I- Aged Woman, Out Walking, Meets Death Mrs. Catherine Scil aum Falls Under Wheel* of Auto Was 86 Years Old Funeral Services Will Be Held from Bunker ‘Hill Davis Runs Third — Contest Between Two Leaders Was Close — Wilson Strongest n?

The secretary read his views from a prepared statement.

William Wilson had no statement to make regarding reports he would ask a recount, because of the closeness of the vote. The showing he made he thought was “mighty nice.” “I was glad to find there are enough good people in Alton to almost defeat two fellows. I had two men to beat.
