Don Lauro Aguirre, an old border journalist died at the age of 68. At the town of Solomonville, in southern Arizona, the journalist Lauro Aguirre and Flores Chapa established the anti-Diaz newspaper "El Independiente" and later was the founder of the first newspaper that was published in Spanish in El Paso. Other papers he published were, "El Progresista", "La Reforma Social" & "El Precursor" Don Lauro, whose primary profession was an engineer, had quarreled with General Diaz for reasons of a political nature, and had to settle in this country, taking up residence in the city of Nogales Arizona, and ultimately, El Paso.

In March 1896, he & Flores Chapa were arrested on a charge of inciting a Mexican Revolution. The charges were later dropped.
In July 1896 it was suspected he was instrumental in the Yaqui Uprising. He had ties with Teresa Urrea, a revolutionary known as La Santa de Cabora. In 1902 Aguirre wrote to President Theodore Roosevelt to request protection as a political refugee, after having heard a rumor that the Díaz government planned to kidnap him. In Nov. 1906 he was arrested for the charge of murder that was committed in Mexico at the request of Mexican Consul Mallen. These charges were later found to be false and he was released.

He is survived by his wife & son, Enrique.
