Preparations were taken to repel an attack on El Paso in the event war is declared between Mexico and the United States A Carranxa move to cut off the retreat of part of the American ex peditionary forces was reported. Unconfirmed rumors were current that Carranza had sent a rae*seng**r to Washington notifying President Wilson a state or war would be de clared to exist he*ween the two countries unless the United States troops were ordered withdrawn from Mexico within a week Every available motor truck Is in service along the mile Atneri can line south of Columbus, N.

Amer lean arrivals from Mexico stated famine had spread throughout the country and oeclared that the de , facto government has not sufficient food supplies to maintain its army . over SO days. Gen Pershing's men are en trenched at strategic points. No frontal attack by Carranza's armies was anticipated, but it was feared American patrols might clash with disorderly. uncontrolled de facto troops A comparatively few El Paso hus bands and fathers planned to send their women and children to north ern cltiea. Information received that 10.000 Mexican troops were hidden In hills wltbir. 20 miles of Juarex and It* 4.000 garrison led to fears that El Paso may be attacked. *T am prepared for any emer gency." said Gen. George Bell, com manding the 5.000 troops at Fort Bliss "In case of an attack on El Paso our military will be ready to meet tbe Invading forces and will give a good account of Itself.” Battery A. of the New Mexico state militia, and a battalion of the Twentieth United States infantry arrived in El Paso last night to re inforce the troops stationed at Fort BUm. Local authorities received infor mation that cavalry had left Villa Abumada for El Valle, which i* be tween the American bases at Co lonta Dublan and Namiquipa. Gen. Pershing was reported to have only about s third of bis forces below Colonla Dublan and the Carranxa move was interpreted to be in prep aration to cut off their retreat.

Tex., June 19 —A disposition to criticise General Parker, commanding at Brownsville, for withdrawing the American col umn sent Into Mexico near there Saturday morning, was checked to day by General Fun a ton.

The withdrawal of the expedition, comprising several hundred men, took place yesterday. Armed men. described by Parker as “bandits.” fired on the retreating column. A minor rear guard action resulted. In which one Mexican was killed and two wounded. No American was hit Major Anderson, commanding the expedition, was ordered hark to the American side after Parker Rad ex changed notes with General Ricault, Matamoras commandant, through Mexican consul Garza. Rlrault in formed Parker that unless the ex pedition. which he referred to as an "Invading force," was withdrawn It would be attacked Parker re plied that the belligerent attitude of the Mexican commander was the best guarantee of continuation of the expedition's presence In Mexico, The Night Clerk — beg pardon, hut pet animals are not allowed in this hotel The leading lady's Husband— Sail right.
