Loss of Life in Battle Near
Juarez, Max., Net Great
SEARCHERS FIND TWO BODIES
About 200 Rebel Wounded Have Been
Cared For in Juarez While Federal
Wounded Were Taken With Army.
The victory of General Villa, rebel
leader, over Huerta's federals who
were marching on Juarez, Mex., was
When the federals fell back Villa
was too well satisfied to follow up the
victory and be and his men returned
After a brilliant coup that enabled
him to capture Juarez and a defense
of the place that was as brilliant as
the capture he stopped lighting when
the federals retreated.
The number of dead as a result of
the federal assault upon Juarez will
never be known.
Excited people from the Held de
clared the dead would total six or
eight hundred. They reported the
wounded lying everywhere without
medical attention or assistance.
Today there are 184 wounded men
In the improvised hospitals In Juarez
under treatment. The rebels say
there are no more on the field. About
ten have died In the Juarez hospitals,
bringing the total number of men
wounded on the field to about 200. '
In the ordinary fortunes of war the
dead Bhould number about a third of
this, or not over seventy. The list of
those actually killed In battle could
not have been much above this figure
or the bodies could not have been
Newspaper men covered the battle
field from east to west and from north
to south In an auto yet failed to dis
cover more than two dead bodies, both
corpses of federals. They had their
hands tied and had been executed.
Dead horses, possibly ten or fifteen,
were discovered. Entrenchments were
Inspected, empty cartridges found,
exploded shrapnels were discovered
but nowhere were dead bodies found.
There undoubtedly were dead as a
result of the battle. These, it was
explained, were gathered up by a train
and taken to one point and burled.
Automobiles by the thousands from
El Paso visited the battlefield. Men,
women and children made up the
parties. It has been a holiday for El
Paso. Souvenirs of exploded shells
are common on the streets of El Paso.
All the visitors were surprised at the
failure to find hordes of dead.
The visitors were compelled to ac
cept the general belief that Mexicans
are bad marksmen and that the fed
erals were probably as hungry as
decimated when they quit the fight
and retreated to Chihuahua.
Open empty ammunition boxes were
scattered a''out. There was evidence
that the ennon had been hauled up
and down the various hills. Between
the two lines of the opposing forces,
a distance of six miles, the country
was seemingly undisturbed.
That there were some burials that
were not of the bodies of battle vic
tims Is admitted by the rebels. They
say they executed a number of fed
erals, but that they were promptly
buried In a ravine. The visitors did
not find this community grave.
The rebels said they had captured
500 federals, but they brought onlv
snout zoo reaeral prisoners Into
Juarez. If they captured the full num
ber claimed the rest can be accounted
for but In one way the firing squad
and the trench but the mystery of it
all is where are the graves?
ZELAYA IN TOILS
Once Dictator of Nicaragua Arrested.
Officers Find Him Asleep.
Jose Santos Zelaya, former presi

The room was dark when the agents
entered. They turned on the light
and Zelaya was disclosed peacefully
sleeping. Chief William Offley, chiet
of the eastern branch of the depart
ment of justice, recognized him and
woke him up and arrested him.
