File No. 312.115C96/43

Special Agent Silliman to the Secretary of State


General Trevino informed the First Chief to-day that the Villista Generals Jose Rodriguez and Carlos Amaya were apprehended yesterday at Pearson and shot last night. A reward in gold is offered for the perpetrators of the Santa Ysabel outrage. The sternest measures will be taken against all Villistas, who are all considered bandits and outlaws.

It is again requested that the military and immigration authorities cooperate by denying refuge in the United States to these outlaws.
