TO LEAVE PROBE INTO KILLING
' " WE'NTpN Tp U. S. "
London, Feb. 21. The British gov
ernment, for the present at least, will
leave investigation-of the execution
of William S. Benton, a British owner
in Mexico, wholly in the hands of the
United States, requesting this gov
ernment to thbroughly investigate
The execution, of Benton is ad
mitted by Villa, who authorized U. S.
Consul T. D. Edwards, at Juarez, to
notify the widow of the mine owner.
Villa's defense, if the U. S. or Eng
land demands an explanation, will
probably be that Benton was shot
because he entered Villa s office and
threatened him with a revolver, when
he came to protest to the rebel chief
tain against the destruction of his
property by the constitutionalists'.
The mine owner was last seen alive
in Juarez on Tuesday morning. He
was headed for Villa's headquarters,
where he said he meant to tell the
rebel leader what he thought of him
for allowing the rebels to damage his
ranch, "Los Remedios," in Chihua
hua, The execution of Benton is believ
ed to have occurred Tuesday night at
Juarez, after a military court trial, of
which Frederico Gonzales Garza was
the presiding officer. The formal
charge was that Benton was impli
cated in a plot to take Villa's life.
