400 PRISONERS TAKEN
Lack of Bandages, Medicine
and Proper Food Causing
Suffering at Juarez.
El Paso, Tex. Nov 20 Villa's reb
el army, reiurnlng from its victorious
battle at Mesa, began arriving In Ju
arez shortly before noon, the men In
good spirits apparently, and well sup
piled with ammunition which thev
hay captured from the federals. Fit
teen federal field pieces and fifteen
machine guns, captured by the rebels
were brought overland to Juarez and
arrived at about the same time that
the rebel army commenced coming In
A troop review, which was In thi
nature of a triumphal parade, was at
once started and was reviewed by
General Villa from an automobile.
Pour train loads of federal prison
ers captured by Villa's rebel armv
were brought to Juarez at 11 o clock
today, Francisco Pancho ilia accotn
panying them in a special car.
All Former Rebels Executed.
In all more than 400 prisoners were
on the trains, according to rebel count.
It was stated that all former rebels
who were found among the captives
were promptly executed on the fle:d
of battle.
Most of the cars used in transport
Ing the prisoners to Juarez were cap
tured from the federals, it Is claimed.
There were no volunteers or Irregu

General Inez Salazar, federal com

ed by rebels to have been shot In the

Tuesday's fighting Rebels say they
saw Salazar carried to the rear dur

El Paso. Tex.. Nov. 26 That the
rebels defendl . Juartfi consider all
danger of further attack trcm i be fed

morning by the work of digging up the
mines In the outskirts of the citj near
the Juarez Jockey club which is to

the destruction of barbed wire de

Ceneral Villa still maintained this
morning that the federals ivere In

board
No firing had been heard to the
south of Juarez this morning up to 9
o'clock. Thus, It appeared that after
thirty hours of fighting the rebel
t aptors of the town had flung back
the federal assault and would hold
the border city without dispute Villa
said he would pursue the federals al
once, but he Is known to lack ammu

without food or means of transporta
tlon, In a desert, and 200 miles from
Its base.
Estimates of the total number or
dead placed them at 300; the wound
ed ut many more than this. This
was mere guesswork, as no Americans
have yet been over the field and a
tog was hanging over everything this
morning, preventing the rebels learn
ing anything of conditions
Red Cross Falls to Respond.
The American Red Cross has failed
to respond to the appeals for aid,
made by the rebel officials yesterday ,
und an effort will be made to secure
money from some otber sources to en
able the El Paso doctors and nurses
to care for the dying. So far, only
men wounded in the head and body
have been cared for. Broken arms
and legs and flesh wounds have re
ceived utterly no attention.
The slightly wounded bandaged
their hurts as best they could on
the field with clothing, handkerchiefs
or anything that would stanch the
flow of blood In several Instances,
wounded men were seen to cut bul

blades of pocket knives that had been
dulled by usage in camp and upon the

Hospital Necessities Lacking.

Men Face Suffering Bravely
The suffering of the wounded reb

was borne usually with stoical indif

groan or a twitch of the face. With
gaping wounds In the head or chea'
or with limbs dangling from bullet
and shrapnel wounds, the wounded

were using In their work of dressing
