File No. 312.115/314


My June 27, 5 p.m.2 Chihuahua Mining Company received telegram last night from Chihuahua agent:

We had to loan forcibly to the Government five thousand pesos which they will discount from taxes. We could not avoid it.

Hard to justify this as they have ample money in Juarez and plan to run train with military escort to Chihuahua to-day.
