As it has been officially reported to these headquarters by commanders of posts, and also through civil authorities, that armed bodies of men and organizations of a character disloyal to our Government are formed and being formed in various parts of this district, and loyal soldiers being ruthlessly shot down and murdered in the public streets of La Paz by a member of one of these bands without cause or provocation other than loyalty, the colonel commanding being satisfied of the facts, it is ordered that all military commanders of posts in this district use their utmost and speedy exertions to find out and break up these traitorous bands and organizations. All Union citizens are requested to give such information and aid to the commanding officer of the nearest military post where such bands and organizations are known, and act in co-operation with the military authorities bringing the traitors to speedy justice.
