San Antonio, Tev., June 13.—One of
the three Mexican bandies killed Mon-
day in the chase of outlaws who raid-
ed the T. A. Coleman ranch north-
west of Laredo, Sunday morning,
wore a Carranza uniform bearing the
Insignia of a Carranza lieutenant col-
onel, according to a message received
here Monday night. One of the ban-
dies taken prisoner identified the body
at Webb, Texas, Monday afternoon, as
Lieutenant Colonel Villareal of the
Cenobio Mendez, a Mexican cow-
boy, who was captured by the bandits
in the raid on the Celeman ranch,
and escaped when the Mexicans were
surprised attempting to burn the
bridge on the International & Great-
Northern railroad near Webb, said
Monday night the bandits talked free-
ly of their purpose to burn the bridge
and wreck a train, after which they
intended killing and robbing the pas-
sengers. At Encinal. Just east of
Laredo, the bandits, according to
Mendez, permitted him to write a
farewell letter to his wife, the ban-
dits having previously stated their in-
tention of killing him. The letter was
given to Villareal, who promised to
deliver it to Mendez's wife. This let-
ter was found on the bandit's body
identified as that of Villareal.
Deputy Sheriff Dolores of Laredo
headed the posse which intercepted
the bandies at the bridge and it was
one of the deputy's shots which kill-
ed Villareal, according to reports
here. Villareal and his band fought
desperately, and only tried to escape
when their leader had been killed.
Two other Mexicans were killed be-
fore the bandits retreated.
