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 factor, 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 tlu 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."

A : :i ''.. - EDERALS ARE TRAPPED IN CITY So Reports Villa, Telling News of Torreon Victory REBELS WIN GREAT BATTLE 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 Palacio. Juarez, Mex., March 30. Official rebel advices from Gomez Palacio say that three federal generals, all of them prominent commanders in Gen eral Velasco's army at Torreon, have been killed in the fighting. They are Generals Pena, Reyes and Anaya. General Occasauza, 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 rebl 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 au thentic news for several days ca' i when newspaper correspondents at the front reported the complete in vestment of Gomez Palacio 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 Palacio, 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 bottli'il up and they could not escape. Villa denied that the federals had been reinforced from Saltillo and advised that he had a force of men between Torreon and Saltillo to keep communi cation cut. R was confirmed that Villa did not have his entire force engaged In the fighting at Lerdo and Gomez, but Ben avides 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 chiefs were fighting their way Into Gomez Palacio. Garbed In a dusty torn suit, a slouch hat and a red handkerchle' tied about his neck as in his bandit days, General Villa among the ragged, thirsty, half famished soldiers wh.i have fought day and night for tin capture of Torreon, was a conspicuous figure. The 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 at what point to (ire. Ills 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 woulf1 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 be the center of our civil government. But the mili tary government will be here and it will be a moving government."
