the part of several cities which were
disappointed to overturn the commit

a change In the reserve cities named.
Probably no act of the administra

tests regardless of party lines. As a
result thera is strong likelihood ti nt
bills will be introduced In one or both
houses of congress to amend th cur

a large nut.iber on the western lines.
The financial saving on the eastern
lines, it 's estimated, will be close
to $2,000,000 a year should the curtail

western lines it is roughly calculated
that the economies will effect a saving
not greatly dissimilar.

Rebel Cavalry Harass Velasco's
Shattered Army
Fleeing Federals Drop' Arms and Bag
gage In Their Haste to Get Away.
Torreon Battle Bloodiest of Revolt
Rebel cavlry under the commands
of Generals Hernandez and Ortega are
pressing the remnants of General
Velasco's fleeing federals, who left
Pancho Villa in undisputed possessiou
of Torreon, Mex.
The rear guard of the routed army
was overtaken at San Pedro de Los
Coionis, says a dispatch to Supreme
Chief Carranza from General Villa. In
the fight 100 federals were killed and
163 were made prisoners, reads tho
The telegram adds that the men and
officers of the fleeing federals are dis
carding tlitir arms and baggage in
their flight, which has now become a
rout. The rebel cavalry is presslns
them closely in an efTort to either kill
or capture all of them, especially Gen
eral Velasco.
Another message from Villa an
nounces the capture of four cannon,
1,000 shells and an immense amount
of rifle and small arms ammunition
In Torreon.
Villa is rapidly restoring order In
the city and will have business re
sumed in a few days. One of tho
first things he did was to order the
destruction of all liquor in the place.
Stores were broken open, looted and
many of them burned. Foreigners
have suffered the most from losses
to the stock of goods as most of the
mcrchandisii.g in Torreon was carried
on by Ge-nans, Italians, Spaniards,
French and some few Americans.
Many of the larger stores, according
to press dispatches, were used as for
tifications. All accounts agree that tho fighting
was the most terrific that lias ever
taken place In the history of a Mex
ican revolution. Fortified as they were
Inside the city, the federals were able
to make the rebels pay dearly for
every position they took. And when
the federals were driven from one
building often they retreated but half
a block and again made a stand In an
other building equally as easily forti
fied. Thus the rebels forced the .federals
hack inch by Inch toward the moun
tains in the west. These mountains
were heavily fortified by the federals
and it was in these trenches that thn
force of Velasco made Its last stand.
After two days of fighting from' the
hills, most f his army sheltered In
Canyon Gunrachi, a basin between
two hills, Velasco was able to with-,
draw unseen by the rebel army and
get well upon his way before the
rebels were aware of the evacuation.
Velasco took with Mm as .many as
possible of the volunteers in his com
mand, leaving the regulars In tho
trenches to keep up the fire against
the enemy and cover his evacuation.
The rebels had threatened to exe
cute all volunteers, and they have al
ways carried out the threat where
such men were made prisoners, whlh.i
the regular army men generally havi
their lives spared if they embrace tho
cause of the rebels.'
Orozco, the former rebel leader
against Mudcro, is a particular object
of hatred on the part of the rebels,
hut he was not captured. He was
south of Torreon and, while reported
as marching to the relief of the be
leaguered garrison, did not reach It In
time to join in any of the fighting. .
It Is consl ;ered that Villa has prob
ably been rcry fair In reporting his
own loss, as F00 dead and 1.600 wound
ed. It Is bJle.ved that the federals'
dad will n' exceed the list of rebel
dead and that .the federal list of
wounded is not as hrge as that of
the rebels because the rebels had to
do more fighting In the open than the

Vote iii House 248 to 162, a
Majority ol C6
Administration Majority Was Larger
Than Bill's Supporters Had Hoped
For After Opposition of Clark.
The Sims bill to repeal the tolls ex
emption clause of the Panama canal
act was passed by the house by a
vole of 24S to 162, a majority of 86.
The result was more than the ad
ministration leaders had hoped for,
for the most optimistic had not esti
mated that the bill would get more
than fifty votes majority. The vote
was taken amid intense excitement.
The vot was especially surprising
utter Speaker Clark, in a ringing
speech, hud denounced the Sims bill
as a practical abandonment of tho
iM on roe doctrine and had cried at one
point iu his address:
"I would rather see the Panama
canal walled up than to give the Brit
ish people any control of it. It's ours
forever, for better or for worse."
Mr. Clark did not attack in the
slightest degree the president, as had
been predl'ted, but confined himself
to a criticism of the Mr. Wilson's free
tolls policy.
Any poll made of the senate at this
time would not be reliable. A change
of four or tfve votes would swing the
result and it Is admitted even by the
friends of the administration that
more than that number of senators
are within the doubtful zone.
One thing is certain the question
will not be brought to a vote In the
senate as early as ie president and
his friends expected. Some of the
older legislators say that at least a
month will be consumed in debate.
Congressmen Attack the Treasury.
When the watch dogs of the treas
ury in the house determined to sare
Vncle Sam nearly $100,000 a year by
knocking out the so-calted "mileage
grab" they were unprepared for the
defeat that awaited them.
The house membership not only re
fused to vcte against the "mileage
grab," but it determined to add to Its
"perquisites" and that's what It did.
The proposition that members should
be reimbursed for their actual travel
outlay instead of being paid twenty
cents a mile as at present was defeat
ed, 83 to 46.
Then I ho house proceeded to the
consideration of an amendment in
creasing the salaries of members' sec
retaries from $1,500 to $1,800 a year.
With a whoop it carried, 115 to 65.
House Passes Pensions Bill.
Pensions for widows and minor chil
dren of the officers and men who
served in the Spanish-American war,
the Philippine Insurrection and the
Boxer uprising In China would be

The bill would grant $12 monthly to
the widow of an honorably discharged
soldier or sailor and $2 monthly for
each child under sixteen years of age,
provided that the widow shall have
married the soldier prior to the pas
sage or the hill. The pensions are to
be limited, however, to widows with
out means of support other than their
daily labor and nn actual net income
not exceeding $2f.O n year.
Eastern Part of Country in Particular
Is Hit.
Dun's Review 'of Trade says this
week: .
"Current movement or merchandise
continues somewhat below normal,
particularly In the east; in the west
and smith there Is more activity and
business sentiment Is quite confident
because of the generally promising outlook. At a number of
the luterloi centers bunk clearings
exceed those of the two years im
mediately preceding, and at Chicago
clearings for March are the lowest
ever reported for a single month.
"Mercantile collections are some,
what backward, which Is not
at this season, and In spite of the at
tractive rates for money borrowing Is
light and offerings of commercial
paper continue unrestricted. Re
trenchment still characterizes iron
and steel trade."
