Vera Cruz. An incident which came near resulting in a battle between the American forces and followers of General Huerta occurred Saturday. Five hundred Me.cans, cavalry and infantry, commanded by a lieutenant, sent a messenger to the America outposts under a flag of truce at 9 o'clock Saturday morning and demanded the surrender of Major Russell and his force of Third regiment marines. Russell's reply was: "Get out. Don't waste any ten minutes.'' Before American reinforcements arrived the Mexicans fired four shots and Russell fired a single rifle shot in The machine guns were exchange. not used. The Mexicans retreated before Russell's supports came up. The attack at the front was made while another detachment of the Mexicans started for the Tejar waterworks, which gives this city its supply. The reservoir and pumping station is situated ten miles south of this city and five miles inland. The Mexicans expected to either destroy the pipes or make the water unfit for use, as part of their plan to establish a food blockade from the interior. This was to be done in the hope of starving out the Americans. Three companies of marines under Major Butler are intrenched at the waterworks. The Mexicans probably reconsidered upon viewing the American defence and retreated. Denver. In a telegram addressed, to Martin D.
