THE WASHINGTON TIMES! MONDAY: MARCH 13,1 1016.
was a spontaneous act. They believe it to have been the
result of a carefully organized plan of guerrilla wartfare.
VILLA REGARDED AS HERO.
They have reason to believe that 90 per cent of the
Carranza forces in northern Mexico, far from deploring
the raid of Villa into American territory, regard him as a
hero. The opinion is expressed by seasoned American of
ficers who have served on the border and know the "greas
er," that whatever may be the factional hatreds among the
Mexicans the supreme feeling among all is an intense
hatred of the "gringo."
American border towns are known to be full of Mexi
can spies.' The army has reason to believe that every move
made by Funston will probably be known to Villa as soon
as it is k'nown in Washington. Half the Carranza gacri
son at Juarez was serving six mdnths ago under the banner
of Villa. '
From an authoritative source it was learned this ,
morning that the general staff had planned as the initial
expedition after Villa a force of 8,000 men. The intention
of Funston is not to niove the main body of these until he
has other regiments on the border ready to take their places.
There is confidence that this expedition will be only
the starter. Within a week it is expected that the Presi
dent will have to get additional forces, and that the militia
will have to be called out.
For this eventuality the War Department is waiting
with interest. Officers there expect the scenes preceding
trie Spanish-American war to be re-enacted, when less than
33 per cent of the National Guard responded to the call.
They believe that it will give the United States another
striking lesson .of tfie weakness of the militia scheme the
scheme uppermost in Hay army preparedness bill now be

Fire Damages presidio,
Inquiry Will Be Made
MONTEREY, Cal., March 13.
The headquarters building at
the United States Presidio
here was badly damaged by
fire today. ItriRortant'army
records were destroyed, to-
gcthcr with the telephone
and telegraph exchanges.
While defective wiring was re
ported to have been the
cause of the fire, officials arc
investigating the possibility
that it was connected with.
the Mexican crisis. ,
spread from the beginning that the up
hot of the whole business would be a.
general turning of Mexican element!
against Americans and then interven
tion. Hhould the expedition be allowed to
proceed unmolcMed by the Carranxa'
force nnd no serious hitch' develop,
President Wilson will not carry the
matter to Congress. Out otherwise he
will do so. If a situation arises which
seems to demand Intervention, and the
President should say so to Congress,
there In no reason to doubt he would be
backed without reference to party lines.
Senator Sherman of Illinois, In a state
ment. said thnt If Carranza refused to
join In the hunt for Villa the United
States should Intervene In Mexico, and
that there was more reason to intervene
In Mexico .than there was In Cuba.

FOR ORDERS TO GO
Foreign governments aro watching
with keen Interest the developments at
the border.' In German circles the situ

come diversion from the acute relations
existing between the United States and
Germany on the submarine controversy.
Sir Cecil Bprlng-Itlce, the rBltlsh Am
bassador, called at the State Depart
ment today to be advised as to the plans
'of the Unite 1 States.
The President conferred at 11:30
o'clock with Attorney General Gregory,
who iavors the establishment by under
standing w'th Carrw of n utral
sone wherom tho forces of both gov
ernments can operate against Villa.
Senators Stane and Saulsbury, of the
Foreign Relations Committee, also call
ed on thi President. The engagement
had been made previously for the Pur
pose of providing a place In the con
sular service for a friend of Senator
Saulsbury, but while at the White
House the Senators discussed with the
President the possibility of Senate
action to ratify any agreement with
Carranza. Tho Administration regards
such ratification as unnecessary.
Whllo declining to tell what the ad
ministration's policy would be. Senator
iftonc, after a conference with the Presi
dent, said that reciprocal border-crossing
agreements, such as Carranza has
nsked, have been -ma do by tho Presi
dent without a treaty.
This program. It it can be carried., out,
would obviate the necessary of a two

In thn Senate to contlrm a treaty. With

Troops' From Washington to
iT.became known today that the, Uni
ted States placed an airtight embargo
on munitions shipments to Mexico. Even
mining explosives are 'barred. Armed
Individuals are not allowed to cross at
any point. At Agua Prleta a million
rounds of cartridges, ordered by Car
ranza, were held up. Carranza may pro
test against rencwnl of tho embargo
with hla "friendly" government.
Whether General Funuton's operations
' would be held up until an agreement Is
reached with Carranza was a point upon
which officials refused Information to
day. It was reiterated that Funston
has orders to start whenever he Is
ready, and that he Is to bo given a free
rein without hindrance from Washing
ton. Delay In starting the expedition will
not operate to make Villa's capture
more difficult, according to army offi
cers. The campaign plans contemplate
a complete clean-up of Vllllsta banditry,
not mero dispersal of Villa's outlaws
into small bands.
Additional fenrs were expressed to
day for the 600 Mormohs reported ma
rooned at Casns Grandcs. Although
guarded by a Carranza garrison, their
escape to tho north has been Bhut off by
Villa's cutting tho railroad.
Exodus of Americans from Mexico
was reportod from all sections. Mining
camps and ranches nre being abandoned
in the flight. The American colony at
Mexico City Was also reported most ap
prehensive. Few American consuls re
main In northern Mexico, and theso
have been given authority to leave.
General Funston has advised the war
Department that thn principal cause of
his delay Is to complcto commissary ar
rangements. The desert country facing
the Americans makes It Imposslblo for
them to live on the country. EI Paso,
with supplies secured there and from
San Antonio, will be the principal sup
Transportation difficulties are also
hampering Funston's mobilization.
Great distances to bo traveled and few
trains, with commands scattered all
along the border, Is making concentra

Funston has Indicated that the expedi

tions, but not necessarily simultane

of the three additional regiments or

Not only does the mnnlfesto Issued

The Carranzlsta even expressed the
belief that the flrst American blood
spilled might not be by Vllllstas, but
by Carranzlsta soldiers opposing inva
sion as tho Initial expedition sweeps in
to Juarez to take over the Mexican rail
ways. He feared that If this hannened the
"friendly Invanlon" would cease to be a
fact and with a rebellion on their hands
the" Americans would bo compelled to
conquer most of Mexico, Instead of
merely taking Villa "dead or alive.'1
No co-opcratton was displayed today
by the de facto Mexican forcca-across
the border. However, tho American
army offlclals feel a strong contempt for
the military acuities or the carranzisias.
If co-operation Is arranged, and the
Mexicans do not rise against the Amer
ican soldiers, the biggest man-hunt In
history will open with the movemont
across the border. Redoubling their ef
forts to capture Villa themselves, and
thus render the American Invasion un
necessary, the do facto government Is
reported to have 2,600 men closing on
Corrnlltos. Two thousand more Just ar
rived at Juarez will be sent to Pnlomas.
Twelve thousand American troops aro
mobilizing on the border to enter the
This makes a total of 16,500 trained
soldiers after one man. While Villa has
a force variously estimated at from wu
to 4,000, ho alone Is believed to be the
object of thn American expedition, nnd
with Villa killed or captured, their work
will be considered practically accom
plished. Tho American mobilization Is going on
behind an official censorship today.
Soldiers are ignorant of their destina
tion. Crews of troop trains are working
under orders to "keep going until told
to etop by the commanding officers."
While the main body of United States
troops may avoid Mexican cities to pre
vent troublo with non-combatants, a
part of the Initial expedition waa ex
