Dun's Review of Trade says this
"Expected Improvement in trade
conditions has not as yet materialized
and, while indications of progress are
manifest in certain directions, there
Is still a lack of uniformity In reports
from the loading centers. A some
what backward spring has militated
against normal distribution of season
able merchandise.
"The country's agricultural outlook
constitutes a highly Important fnctnr,
and it Is extremely gratifying thi.t
prospects for the winter wheat crop
leave little to be desired. Similarly,
cotton Is entering upon the new year
under favorable auspices, on the
whole, and prices of the great south
ern staple have latterly shown some
what less firmness. News from tin
iron and steel industry the foremost
business barometer reflects a wait
ing attitude upon the part of consum
ers and new bookings this month will
not equal those of February."

So Reports Villa, Telling News
of Torreon Victory
Juarez Reports That Three Federal
Generals Were Slain During Five
Days' Fighting General Villa a
Picturesque Leader as He Heads
Army in Onslaught Losses Report
ed Heavy at Gomez Palaclo.
Juarez, Mex., March 30. Olllclal
rebel advices from Gomez Palaclo say
that three federal generals, all of
them prominent commanders in Gen
eral Velasco's army at Torreou, have
teen killed in the fighting.
They are Generals Pena, Reyes and
Anaya. General Occasanza, another
prominent commander of the federals,
is reported to have been desperately
The dispatch conveyed the intelli
gence that the federals were making
what was regarded as a last stand.
General Herrera, with his own rebel
command and a part of General Ben
avides' force, had entered Torreon
from the east and had driven the fed
erals into the western part of the city.
Officials here declared that the fed
erals already had tried to escape from
the city, but were driven back, and
are in no condition to withstand such
an attack as that of which Villa gave
notice In his telegram.
Out of the wealth of conflicting re
ports of rebel defeats and rebel
victories from federal and rebel
sources during the week the first a-i-thentlc
news for several days ca-
when newspaper correspondents at
the front reported the complete in
vestment of Gomez Palaclo by the
rebel army and the driving of all fed
erals across the river Into Torreon.
The messages declared that Gen
eral Velasco, the federal commander,
had been maintaining general head
quarters In Gomez and had tried to
make his strongest stand there instead
of Torreon.
Villa kept his artillery plugging
away all of Thursday night at the
federals in Torreon, refusing to allow
them to get a rest. The artillery fire
continued Friday while many of
Villa's men engaged In burying the
dead and removing the wounded from
Gomez Palaclo, Lerdo and surrounding
The loss on both sides was heavy,
but the rebel advices state that the
federal loss Is the greater. They claim
that 800 federals were killed In Gomez.
The rebels admit losing 100 in the
Villa Is quoted In one message from
the front as stating that he would kill
or capture every federal In Torreon:
that he had them effectively bottled
up and they could not escape. Villa
denied that the federals had been
reinforced from Saltlllo and advised
that he had a force of men between
Torreon and Saltlllo to keep communi
cation cut.
Tt was confirmed that Villa did not
have his entire force engaged In the
fighting at Lerdo and Gomez, but Ben
avldes and several other command
ers have been hammering Torreon
from the east and northeast for the
past four days, thus keeping a large
part of the federal garrison confine'"
to Torreon proper in Its defense, whilo
Villa and other chlers were fighting
their way into Gomez Palaclo.
Garbed In a dusty torn suit, a
slouch hat and a red handkerchfe'
tied about his neck as In his bandit
days, General Villa among the ragged,
thirsty, half famished soldiers who
have fought day and night for tin
capture of Torreon, was a conspicuous
Tlie conventional notion of a com
manding general directing a campaign
through field glasses and with a map
spread before him found no Illustra
tion In Villa. Instead he climbed over
the rocky hills or crept among the
mesquite bushes to tell the men nt
what point to lire. His principal ac
tivity was that of a scout, but his pres
ence never failed to Inspire the sol
diers wherever he appeared.
General Villa, during pauses In the
firing, talked confidently of the fall
of Torreon. He did not place him
self, however, among those who be
lieve the capture of Torreon woult'
spell the collapse of the Huerta
regime, but intimated rather that he
expected Huerta to fight on until pos
sibly the rebel forces surrounded Mex
ico City.
"After Torreon," said General Villa,
"we will establish our military base
there for movements eastward and
southward. Chihuahua, with General
Carranza there, will become the provi
sional capital. It will bo the center
of our civil government. But the mili
tary government will be here and it
will be a moving government."

Takes Post of War secretary
For That Period
Another Sensation Is Added to Eng
land's Army Crisis When Premier
Announces Temporary Retirement.
London, March 31. A series of
seiiKations m the house of commons
In connection with the army crisis
reached a climax with the announce
ment by Premier Asquith that lie
would assume the portfolio of secre
tary of war vacated by Colonel Seely.
He added that, as provided by law,
he would retire from the house of
commons until his constituents in
East Fife re-elected him.
The premier's absence from parlia
ment will not bo longer than two
weeks. Ills re-election for the Scot
tish division he has represented ever
since he entered parliament is t"gard
ed certain.
The decision of the premier was un
expected. It momentarily over
shadowed the retirement!! "f ('nl-n- l
Seely, Field Marshal French and Ad
jutant General Kwart. Politicians,
however, were brought back to the
original cause of the ministerial crisis
by the admissions of Viscount Morley
in the house of lords, which confirmed
many Unionist charges, and gave f'e
Intimation that Viscount Morley him
self Intended to retire from politics.
Sir John French, chief of the Im
perial general staff of the British
army, and Sir John Ewart, adjutant
general to the forces, definitely re
signed from the service.
"Colonel Seely's resignation has
been accepted." This was the
euphemistic expression employed by
Premier Asquith in announcing to the
house of commons that his war sec
retary had paid the penalty of his
discretions In adding to a cabinet
document the two paragraphs which
have aroused such feeling as to
threaten the existence of the entire
Premier Asquith's further announce
ment that he himself would take up
the portfol'o of secretary for war
came in the nature of a surprise. He
declared he would retire from t he
house of coiu'iions, in accordance with
the law "until It pleases my constitu
ents to sanction my return."
The premier then dramatically
walked out of the chamber amid
cheers from the Liberals, the Nation
alists and the Labor members, the
whole body of whom rose to their feet
and waved handkerchiefs and papers
as he left.
Mr. Asquilh, having accepted "nn
office of profit under the crown," must
now return to his constituency nf East
File, Scotland, for re-election. On the
last occasion he received 5,149 votes
against 3,330 of his Unionist op
ponent. In a h-ief personal stntement
Colonel Seely told the house there
was no differences between himsrK
and his colleagues in the cabinet on
any point of policy or principle, l'e
said he had pressed his resignation
because there appeared, although such
was not his Intention, to have been
a bargain with the army officers re
garding the service they slioul'l
render to the crown. Neither had Sir
John French nor Sir John Ewnrt the
Intention of making such a bargain.
Andrew Ronar Law, lender of the
opposition, thought It would bo Impos
Bible to proceed with the Irish hon
rule bill in the absence of the premier.
hut Tremler Asquith remarked that
he would 'e at hand If advice was
wanted and then left the house, of
which Regl-ald McKennn, the home
secretary, assumed the leadership.

to Pass Congress
Debate of Twenty Hours Starts After
Opposition Led by Speaker Is De
featedSenate Vote Will Be Close.
The passage by the house of the
administration bill repealing the fr'e
tolls clause of the Panama canal act
Is assured.
This became evident when Champ
Clark's spectacular fight against the
cloture rule demanded by administra
tion leaders wan crushed by a vote
of 207 to 17G.
The reduced Mze in the house for
the administration indicates that the
contest on the tolls Issue in the sen
ate will be very close andthat the ad
ministration stands a chance to lose.
Administration supporters are jubil
ant over the outlook.
With the first obstacles out of the
way, the house settled down to con
sideration of the repeal bill. Demo
crats in Its favor were allotted ten
hours, Democrats against It five, Re
publicans four and Progressives one.
Representative Sims, author of the
bill, led off the debate.
Representative Sims coupled his ar
gument for the repeal with a denunci
ation of the Democrats who had
aligned themselves with the opposition
and declared that If he believed, as
It has been charged, that the presi
dent had accepted an erroneous con
struction of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, he would feel as a moral
coward If he did not immediately ask
for the chief executive's Impeach
ment by the house of representatives.
"Is It reasonable to suppose," ' fl
asked, "that the great masses of the
people are going to believe that the
president of the United States, who

of the American people whose trust

an erroneous construction of a treaty
upon the unwarranted demand of any
one or all the foreign nations of the
In the senate Senator Owen's
speech advocating the repeal precipi
tated a three-hour general discussion
In which many senators participated.
To repeated inquiries by Senators
Chamberlain and Jones Senator Owen
said the president's assurance that
other nations than Great Ilrltain were
opposed to the exemption was suf
ficient for him and ought to be suf
ficient for the senate.
Senator Owen argued that the dis
regard of the lhiltimore platform con
templated by the repeal bill was fully
Justified. Senator O'Gorman interrupt
ed to rend the list of senators who
were members of the resolutions com
mittee at Halt imorn, which favorably
reported the free tolls plank, and de
clared the plank had gone in because
he and other rommittee member'',
who knew of the statements before
the senate interocennlc canals com
mittee, knew that only the transcon
tinental railroads had opposed It.
Compromise Trading Bill Passed.
The senate passed without division
a compromise bill to regulate trading
In cotton futures. The bill would pro
hibit sending through the malls or by
telepraph Information furthering the
making or enforcement of contracts
which do not specify that delivery
Is to be made on a basic grade, with
the option of delivering other govern

which would be fixed by actual trad

as on exchanges now.
