THE MEXICAN SITUATION
Saltillo, Mex., June 22. Personally
heading army of 25,000 men, Gen.
Francisco Villa led general assault on
Zacatecas today, inaugurating a bat
tle which is expected to prove the
crucial one of the campaign to cap- f
ture Mexico City and dethrone Hu-i
erta.
Dispatches state that Villa came to
the rescue of Gen. Natera, whose
forces had been driven back by the
federals under Gen. Barron. The
city is defended by Barron with not
less than, 15,000 men entrenched in
abandoned mine workings on the
slopes of LaBufa. If Villa succeeds
in capturing La Bula his only obsta
cle in the march to Mexico City will
be San Luis Potosi and its fortifica
tions are weak compared to those at
Zacatecas. .
El Paso, Tex. That Gen. Carran
za's forma Ireply to the invitation of
the A. B. C. mediators to participate
in the mediation at Niagara Palls will
hasten the termination of mediation
belief generally expressed here. Car
ranza refused to participate under
agreement that will" bind him to dis
cuss the appointment of a provisional
president or yield to anyone else con
trol of the constitutionalist military
movements and would not permit the
mediators to deal with the internal af
fairs of Mexico. He also refused to
agree to an armistice.
Washington. Fernando Calderon,
most influential of the "lesser chief
tains" in constitutional circles, will
reach here late tomorrow when the
rebels will have an official on the
ground authorized to speak for the
lighting forces represented by Villa
and the local government of Car
ranza ' .
