Periodico Revolutionario - Early June 1910

Massive numbers of troops were deployed throughout Central and Northern Mexico in early June, with a number of territories changing hands. El Periodico Revolutionario has summarized the attacks and territory changes in the past two weeks:

* General Madero attacked General Gutierrez in the territory of Guanajuato. The battle was bloody for both sides, with Madero ultimately retreating.

* General Pancho Villa attacked General Gutierrez in Tamaulipas. Villa’s forces were able to do significant damage to Gutierrez, but were unable to take the territory.

* General Gutierrez has taken the territory of Coahuila from General Pancho Villa.

Militiamen loyal to President Diaz have taken the territory of Michoacan from General Madero. A small scouting party entered Michoacan, finding the territory vacant while Madero’s army was fighting elsewhere.

Military analysts at universities across Mexico are projecting military action for the forseeable future. “It is clear that Mexico has slipped back into Civil War,” said Professor Alejandro Eiranova, of Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. “While many did not project the re-election of President Diaz to trigger war, it clearly has had that affect,” said the professor. Other academics were more optimistic in their outcome. The political science department at the University of Chiapas recently released a book of several essays, headlined by the paper “Fast War: Why the North Cannot Sustain its Barbaric Aggression.”

* Elections were held in Hungary, granting the ruling parties a larger majority in Parliament.

* Ecuador and Peru withdrew their troops from the border between the two nations as the first step in the mediationm of their dispute.

* William Sidney Porter, who, under the pen name O. Henry, one of the most popular story writers in America, has died in New York City at the age of 47. O. Henry, who suffered from cirrhosis of the liver and diabetes, published more than 250 stories in his lifetime. Despite a large income from his writing, he was broke.

* American President Taft met with the presidents of the Western railroads, and then the next day with the Presidents of the Pennsylvania Railroad, New York Central and Southern Railway. All the companies agreed to suspend proposed rate increases.

* The Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, and uncle of King George V of the United Kingdom, has been announced as the successor to Earl Grey as Governor-General of Canada.

Re: Periodico Revolutionario - Early June 1910

Forces loyal to General Gutierrez have taken control of Nuevo León. The territory had previously belonged to General Pancho Villa, and was taken without a fight.
