Fakes His Own Death
Ochoa, who is now the president of the International Airship Company, of Paterson, N. J. , was believed to have died in an asylum in Newark, in 1895, following his release from King’s county prison, in Brooklyn, in which he had spent a two and half year sentence for having violated the United States neutrality laws in attempting to smuggle arms across the Rio Grande to his army, then operating in Chihuahua.

He says he gave out the news himself that he had died because the Mexican government had a standing offer of fifty thousand dollars for him as long as Porfirio Diaz was in the presidential chair.
