Rebels, Penned Like Rats in Cage, in Southern Chihuahua, Are Almost Annihilated by Cross Fire of Government Cavalry, Infantry, Artillery and Air Bombers. MEXICO CITY, April 4. (A.P.) The month-old Mexican rebellion emerged today from a four-day encounter in southern Chihuahua a tottering shadow of the movement which on March 3 threatened the existing Mexican gov ernment. - - Penned like rats in a cage by the fire of coordinating units of federal cavalry, in fantry, artillery and air serv ice, the army of the north yesterday at La Reforma, Chihuahua, was almost annihilated in what was described in government dispatches as a "horrible slaught er. Hundreds were believed killed. WAR OF "EXTERMINATION." Believing his work on the north well done. General Plutarco Elias Calles, federal commander-in-chief, announced diversion of 6,000 of his troops to the states of Guanajuato and Jalisco, to wage a similar war of "extermination" against the so-called religious Insurgents of those states. "Those rebel Infantry who were not killed are our prisoners," General Juan Andreu Almazan, federal field commander, wired President Emilio Portes Gil, "but the veritable butchery among them waa stupendous." GREATEST REVOLT BATTLE General Calles wired the president that the encounter at I-a Reforma was "the greatest battle in. Mexico's revolutionary history. It was definitely decisive; in it the rebels paid dearly for this Infamous revolution." After the rebels retreated from Jimenez, which they held under fire for two days, General Alma-zan's forces entered the town Tuesday night and were allowed to sleep. Detachments of federal cavalry were sent northward at some distance from and paralelling the railroad on each side. PREVENT REBELS' ESCAPE Seven burned bridges between Jimenez and Banta Rosalia prevented the rebels escaping by train. , While the rebels were trying to repair bridges the federal cavalry closed tt followed by Infantry and artillery. Federal airplanes dropped bombs on the rebel trains. The rebels abandoned their trains, but flight was Impossible. Machine gun and rifle fire mowed them down while shrannel levelled whole squads. Some surrenders were accepted. At Chapultepec Castle It was said five hundred of the enemy were wounded and the number killed was much greater." A Chapultepec announcement said that he rebel leaders escaped. This was taken to mean General Jose Gonzalo Escobar. Marrcello Caraveo, Francisco Urbalejo and others. In Mexico City It was believed the action at I Reforma would have the effect of ending the campaign In Chihuahua.

(I.N.S.) Eugene Boyd Fairchild, dry informer, whose admittedly false affidavit- describing the purchase of liquor from Mrs. Lillian DeKing led to her death in a dry raid on her home, was back in Aurora today where he faces arrest on a perjury charge. Fairchild, who "disappeared" shortly before the perjury warrant was issued on his own admissions during the inquest at Geneva, was found in Springfield, III., after officials of Kane county had been unable to locate him. The dry sleuth returned voluntarily to Kane county, stating he had not; "run away," and that he was anxious to tell his side of the story. Fairchild bitterly denounced State's Attorney George Carbary of Kane county and his chief prohibition investigator, Walter Millar, He declared Millar gave him $15 and told him to "get out of town and stay out for a while." ADMITS GIVING MONEY. Millar today admitted he gave Fairchild the money, but denied that he told him to leave town. He said Fairchild said he was "broke" but did not say what he wanted the money for. T am not fleeing justice," Fair-child told the reporter who located him. "I left Geneva hours before that warrant' charging me with neriurv was Issued. I came to Springfield to see my lawyer. "I'm not trying to hide. T'm sick and tired of being pushed around by Carbary and Millar. They've been making me the goat and I'm just beginning to wake UP. "I'm through Keeping under cover. FALSE STATEMENT, At Tuesday's inquest at Geneva Fairchild admitted before the coroner's jury that his sworn statement that he had purchased Jlrjuor from Mrs. DeKing was false. He was subsequently charged with perjury. Attorneys for the DeKing family stated that they considered Fair-child to be even more responsible, morally, for the death of Mrs. f n i v.

PUTMANVILLE, Ind., April 4. (I.N.S.) Seven pounds lighter but claiming to have had "the time of his life," Dr. E. S. Shumaker, militant superintendent of the Indiana Anti-Saloon league, was released from the Indiana state farm at 9:05 a. m. today after completing his 60-day term for contempt of the Indiana supreme court. Good behavior reduced his imprisonment to f3 days. "ENJOYS EVERY MINUTE" "I enjoyed every minute of it," Dr. Shumaker told newspapermen as he emerged from the "fish" room where the state farm .inmates are both dressed in and dressed out. "My color is better than it has been for years. I got rid of a lot of surplus fat at the churn in the state farm dairy department." The noted dry leader's clothes distinctly showed his shrinkage from 170 to 163 pounds, for they were very apparently to large for him. Twenty automobile loads of relatives, friends, welcoming delegations, newspapermen and photographers were lined up at the gates of the state farm awaiting the appearance of Dr. Shumaker. The prison authorities permitted only one automobile to enter the grounds. . This car contained Mrs. Shumaker, Albert Morrison, son-in-law of Dr. Shumaker, P. L Morrison, father of Albert. EMBRACES HIS WIFE Dr. Shumaker embraced and kissed his wife. "Hello dear, how are you mamma?" he greeted her. There were tears of joy in her eyes. Photographers surrounded the happy -couple and asked the -dry chief to pose on the steps of the prison headquarters building. Mrs. Shumaker wanted to edge out of the picture but , Dr. Shumaker pulled her back.

INDIANAPOLIS, April 4. (A.I) With John J. Brown, new director of the state highway department, receiving bids for maintenance work of the department, and John D. Williams, ousted director, at the office of his attorney, the controversy over the office centered today about custody of the highway de-r partment funds. Early in the day Albert J. Wedeking, chairman of the commission which yesterday discharged Williams, received word from the Bankers Trust company, which has custody of the state highway department revolving fund, that until the dispute is settled, the fund would be regarded as "in controversy." Officials of the Institution, after a conference with Wedeking, refused to make a further statement. NO INTEREST IN DISPUTE. Their stand, however, was interpreted to mean that checks drawn by Brown as director would not be honored until the controversy with Williams is settled. It was understood that the bank was protecting itself In the matter and had no interest ln the dispute. At the attorney general's office, plans were being made to submit a formal demand on the bank for custody of the fund. Such a demand wojild bear the signatures of the four members of the commission, it was asserted. WILLIAMS' DESK LOCKED.
