NO IMPROVEMENT Trade Affairs Fail to Show Anything, Says Report. Dun's Review of Trade says this week:- "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."

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 wounded. 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 localities. 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 fighting. 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 figure. 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."

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.

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."

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.

ADMINISTRATION MEN MAJORITY Wilson's Tolls Repeal Expected to Pass Congress TWO TEST VOTES IN HOUSE 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 has direct charge of the enforcement of all our treaties with foreign coun tries Is going to surrender the rights of the American people whose trust ed representative ho Is, by accepting an erroneous construction of a treaty upon the unwarranted demand of any one or all the foreign nations of the world?" 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.
