Luis Cabrera, one of Carranza's

Carranza would yield to the wishes of

the mediators after he had consulted
with his chiefs.
Continued reports of the widening of
the breach between Villa and Carranza,
however, have served to disturb offi

Breceda Issues Statement.
Much interest waa stirred up by a
statement Saturday night by Alfredo
Breceda, private secretary to Carranza.
in which he charged that Gen. Felipe
Angeles was responsible for the break
between villa ana uarranzs.
After referring to Gen. Angeles as
a former officer In the federal army,
Breceda stated that to Angeles was at
tributed the "imprisonment and at
tempted shooting of Gen. Manuel
Chao." and Villa's refusal to send re
inforcements to Gen. Natera when the
latter was being defeated by Gen. Bar
ron at Zacatecas. He also stated that
when Villa in a fit of anger tendered
bis resignation, it was Angeles who in
fluenced many other rebel command
ers to stand by Villa as against Car
ranza. This he said, led Carranza to
dismiss Gen. Angeles from his post as
subsecretary of war, and claimed Villa
had also become acquainted with An-
geleas alleged machinations.
