This issue coincided with a supposed improvement in the government’s fortunes in the area around Tantoyuca. It had been overrun by rebels but Coronel Emilio Querol y Gómez had arrived as Jefe de las Armas, all the businessmen and hacendados had offered him them their moral and financial support in pacifying the Huasteca and this was expected in short orderEl Independiente, 2 April 1914.
