light for Favored Roof
A hundred small encounters oc
curred intermittently in the streets or
over the possession of some favored
roof, but the roar of cannon was
almost continuous.
Both sides used armored trains.
These, with big guns mounted, would
suddenly appear around an elbow of
one of the hills, discharge a broadside
and then retire. Early in the attack
; on Gomez Palacio the trains ventured
out at the same time and a lively ex
change of shots ensued, like a naval
engagement on land.
The federals made use of huge
rockets, which were shot to a great
height, exploding In the air and letting
down a hail of buckshot.
Suffer from Heat and Thirst
On the fourth day of the fight the
intense suffering from heat and thirst
was relieved by a rain thought to have
been brought on by the heavy firing.
During the battle scouts brought
word that federal reinforcements from
Monterey were approaching on the
east. General Herrera was sent

he had sent them scurrying into the

American Ragtime Tinkles
From Piano Amid Scenes
of Rejoicing in Juarez
By Associated Press
Juarez, Mex., April 3. AVith the
taking of Torreon by the rebels last
night constitutionalists now control an
immense wedge-shaped portion of
Mexico, with the point resting on Tor
reon, SOO miles south of here, and
'he top extending along the American
border from Nogales, Ariz., to a point
.lust west of Eagle Pass, Texas. At
Piedras Negras, known also as Cludad
Porflrio Diaz, across the Rio Grande
troni Kagle Pass, there is a federal
garrison, but it does not now consti
tute a menace to the rebels.
The States now subject to the rebel
arms arc Chihuahua, Sonora (except
the port of Guaymas), most of Coa
huila, Durango and Slnaloa.
Yesterday's victory is said to make
the capture of Saltiilo and Monclovia
In Coahuila, and Monterey, the key to
the State of Nuevo Leon, assured. The
main federal force, according to
Villa's report to General Carranza, was
wiped out by death, wounds, capture
or flight at Gomez Palacio and Tor
reon. Mazatlan, the federal port in
the State of Slnaloa, by the release
of the veteran rebel army at Torreon,
| also is in a precarious state.
Assures Rel>el Control
Thus, by his successful campaign of
the last month, General Francisco
Villa has practically assured rebel
control of the vast territory of the
nortlierfl States of Mexico and gained
for himself the reputation of being the
foremost soldier of the country.
It was but a little over a year ago
that he started out from a village
near here with two companions, six
horses, seven dollars in money and a
meager supply of beans, coffee and
sugar. The horses at the time were
not paid for and Villa's first act upon
capturing this city three months ago,
was to repay the liveryman front
whom the horses were "borrowed."
Interest here to-day was divided in
[ speculation as to Villa's future move
j inents and the effect, if any, that the
| rebel triumph would have in Wash
; ington.
Men Embrace Each Other
Never in all Its dramatic history
[since the Madero revolution of 1910
! has Juarez been so nearly mad with
i enthusiasm as it was when a foot mes
senger from military headquarters
I ran through the streets shieking that
Torreon had Drunk with ela
tion, men embraced each other wher
ever they met. Bells in the 300-year
old mission of Guadalupe were set
ringing louder and faster than ever
they have rung for religious purposes.
Khaki-clad rebel soldiers woke from
their sleep In the town's military bar
racks to cheer. Then, stirred by a
common impulse, their rifles were
; turned loose into the air.
For a time, Inhabitants of El Paso
supposed Juarez was again suffering
j one of its periodical attacks,
i Finely dressed officials, high in the
i Carranza administration, threw their
arms around unwashed private sol-
Idlers in the streets and yelled their
; delight. The municipal band, hastily
\ routed from their beds, paraded
| through the streets playing the na
, tional hymn and serenaded Carranza
until the constitutionalist first chief
tired of the music. In the gambling
■ hall conducted by Villa's agents for
j the benefit of the rebel treasury all
| play ceased, while gamblers and game
keepers and spectators alike, shouted
their joy.
"Viva Villa!"
i Through it all, only one name was
! heard above all others. It was Villa
j—"viva Villa!" Common soldiers min
! gled freely with the highest officials
| of the rebel government in a cabaret
; resort and were Invited to drink to the
glory of the insurgent arms. Vir
tually the only place open in the Mex
ican border town where drinks might
be bought, the cabaret was crowded to
the doors with civil and military men
of all ranks. In all stages of dress,
for the hour was late, they crowded
In to embrace friends and toast the
conquering general. In the midst of
all the rejoicing, American ragtime
music tinkled from an antiquated
piano in the cornel', while American
women from El Paso danced the one-1
step with Mexican partners in the
middle of the big room.
Rush For Bridges
When the shooting of rifles and pis
tols in celebration began,' dozens of
federal sympathizers in El Paso awoke
and made a rush for the International
bridges, thinking that, by some un
expected stroke of fortune, federal
forces were attacking Juarez. But
they turned back crestfallen when in
formed by American soldiers on duty
at the bridges that the fall of Torreon
was the cause. Rebel, soldiers guard
ing the Mexican end of the structures

ing insults at the "Huertalstas" who
had "come to see the federals retake
By 2 o'clock in the morning the ex
citement had died away and the
streets were deserted. Plans are un
der way for a formal celebration this
afternoon, over which General Car
ranza will preside.
Samuel Belden of San Antonio, Tex.,
a friend of General Carranza, describ
ed the scene in the Carranza home
when the long awaited news of victory
was received.
"General Carranza hud been talking
with Gomez Palacio off and ou for
some time," Mr. Belden sold, "and was
chatting with members of his fum
ily. Ho seemed very cheerful and
buoyant. At 11 o'clock the telegraph
operator came Into the room with a
piece of paper In his hand.
•'•Well Muchacho. is It Torreon?'
the general smiled as one who knew
well what the answer would be.
" 'Yes my chief,' was the reply.
"Carranza kissed his wife and
daughters, then —'have the bugler

lieutenants and those who gave their

Much Interest Attached
to Return of Wilson's
Representative to U. S.
By Associated Press
Washington, D. C., April B.—An
nouncement of the prospective de
parture for the United States of John
Lind, President Wilson's personal rep
resentative in Mexico, revived interest
to-day in the future trend of the
Washington government's policy toward
the.southern republic.
For the last few weeks officials have
pointed to the battle of Torreon as
likely to furnish an index of the
future, but the result as well as its
effects on the military or diplomatic
situation as respects the strength of
the two factions is still a matter of
some uncertainty here.
While the President has said Mr.
Lind would return to Vera Cruz after
he had obtained a rest and vacation
in the United States, many observers
think he never will go back, as there
has been a disposition for many weeks
on the part of the Washington gov
ernment to refrain from diplomatic
activity while the military forces of
the Constitutionalists and federals
struggled for supremacy. The pros
pect of even more vigorous warfare
and the unwillingness of either faction
to accept any proposals for compro
mise or mediation has caused the
American government to assume an
attitude of strict neutrality. That this
position will be continued indefinitely
is probable unless injury to foreigners
or some other unlooked-for emergency
causes embarrassment.
Two Cases Forgotten
I In the attention that has been con
centrated on the battle of Torreon the
Benton and Vergara eases have been
practically lost sight of, but there is
every Indication that with the battle
over and when another readjustment
of military forces ensues further in
formation will be sought from both
the Constitutionalists and the federal
chiefs as to the course they intend to
pursue in satisfaction of injuries in
tlicted upon foreigners by their sub
In the meantime the presence near
at hand of Mr. Lind will be valuable
because of his familiarity with con
ditions and leaders in Mexico. It is
recognized that the decisive battle at
Torreon or some other strategic point
in Central Mexico may bring about a
situation in Mexico City where a per
sonal representative of the President
might be of assistance in composing
the situation.
Ilale is in Europe
Just what Mr. Lind might do while
in the United States after he has
rested is causing a good deal of specu
lation, the suggestion being advanced
in some quarters that perhaps he
might make a trip to observe con
ditions in Constitutionalist territory
where General Carranza is in control.
For some time William Bayard Hale
had advised the President to a large
extent about the Constitutionalists, but
his health failed him recently and he
went to Europe to recuperate.
! Administration officials are emphatic
I in their declaration that Mr. Lind's
movements at present mean no change
in the American policy. Charge
O'Shaughnessy will continue at Mexico
City to conduct any routine business
that may arise with the Huerta gov
ernment. In none of Mr. O'Shaugh
nessy's transactions, however, it is
pointed out here, is formal recognition
involved, the policy of the Washington
government being to deal with au
thorities in de facto control.
Reference by General Hucrta in his
message to the Mexican congress
Wednesday to the action of the United
States government in connection with
the proposed reassembling of The
Hague conference did not imply, lu
the view of officials here, any rec
ognition to the Huerta government.
Refers to Conference
General Huerta had said in his mes
sage :
"The United States has been so good
as to Invite me. through his Excel
lency President Wilson, to organize in
common accord the preparatory work
for the approaching peace conference
at The Hague."
The explanation of the statement is
found in the fact that last February,
with the purpose of removing what
appeared to be a formidable though
purely technical obstacle to the carry
ing out of the original plan for tha
reassembling of The Hague conference
this year. Secretary Bryan sent a note
to the American diplomatic officers in
every country which was a party to
the original Hague conference sug.
gesting that their governments desig
nate the administrative council of the
permanent court of arbitration at The
Hague as members of a special com
mittee to arrange the progrom for the
third conference.
This note was printed and a copy
was sent to Nelson O'Shaughnessv,
the American charge at the Mexican
capital, who in the ordinary and rou
tine way delivered it to the Mexican
foreign office.
Mexican Embassy at
Washington Is Claiming
Victory For Federals

embassy here to-day still claimed vic
tory for the federal forces at Torreon.

"An official dispatch signed by the
Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Senor
Lopez Portilloy Rojas, has just been
received at the embassy giving an ac
count of the crushing defeat of the
rebel forces under Villa at Torreon.
General Maas, who left .Saltlllo several
days ago, with large reinforcements
has arrived at Torreon. General De
Moure's column has reached San Pe
dro de Las Colonias where a decisive
defeat was administered to the rebel
forces sent out to oppose his advance.
The government has also succeeded In
raising a loan of over 50,000,000 pesos
which will materially assist it In its
tireless efforts towards pacification."

Woodfin's introducing this report of
the committee on resolutions of which
he was chairman, a storm of protest
arose. Dr. George W. Hull, of Mil
lersville, vice-president of the Inter
county and Lancaster County No-Li
cense campaigns at once arose to say
that the adoption of the resolution
would convert the situation into a
status-quo and that members would
"go back exactly as we came." The
Rev. Mr. Johnson, pastor of a Phila
delphia church, urged that a State
wide organization be formed. The
dynamic utterance of a Potter county
delegate along the same lines evoked
a storm of applause. The Potter
county delegate said he felt that the
meeting had been called to organize
one State-wide body, and that coun
ties where the organization of anti
saloon forces was considerably weaker
than in others would naturally expect
to look to a State body for advice and
The Rev. Mr. Watchhorn, another
Philadelphia pastor, advanced the ar
gument that a new organization was
unnecessary. He said that its forma
tion might breed jealousies among the
other organizations.
Warm Discussion
It was at this point that R. A.
I Hutchison, of Pittsburgh, secretary
lot' the board of home missions of the
I United Presbyterian church, intro
duced a substitute resolution endors
ing and urging co-operation with the
anti-saloon league. Again the discus
sion raged, and here one of the wom
en delegates present, Mrs. Morris T.
Wood, of Downlngtown, vice-presi
dent of the Women's Christian Tem.
perance Alliance spoke winged words;
"I am only a woman," she said, "and
I know many think that a woman's
place is not in the forefront of the
battle. But it does seem that you
men want to get together by having
each come each other's way."
Mrs. Wood urged that the conven
tion should not send tho delegates
home with the impression of having
done nothing. "Let us unite," she
urged. A Lebanon county delegate
started tho former discussion on the
six-county recognition phase of the
subject by a plea that the convention
adopt the resolution.
At this juncture Rev. Mr. Woodfin
took the bull by the horns by meet
ing certain subterranean accusations
|in the open. He said he knew It was
i whispered that the resolution aimed at
I the Anti-Saloon league, out he averred
that the slx-couniy organization had
no animosity whatever against the
Anti-saloon league; on the contrary,
they were the best of mends of that
Plea From Moore
Upon the assurance of Dr. E. J.
Moore, superintendent of the Anti-
Saloon League of Pennsylvania, that
Mr. Woodfin's statements wore Correct
and that the two organizations were
friendly to the utmost degree, and
I upon his plea that the convention do
not complicate matters by endorsing
another State organization, the agita
i tlon began to subside, and after a few
[scattered remarks, Dr. Hull withdrew
[ his substitute resolution which had
been seconded by C. F. Swift, mem
ber of the legislature from Beaver
county. Dr. Moore said the Anti-
Saloon League was already at work on
the formation of a new department
to aid no-license organizations.
Chairman Huston then put the ques
tion and a volume of ayes rolled
through the church. After the silence
that followed the calling for nays, a
deep-voiced member struck up a
hymn, "Blest Be the Tie That Binds,"
and the morning session adjourned.
The precipitation of the vital topic
before the meeting as to whether a
State-wide organization would be
formed, made necessary the postpone
ment 'of a symphonetic discussion of
the subject, "The Relation of No
license Campaign to Temperance and
Other Sympathetic Organized Forces,"
which, however, was carried out this
