BLOCK VILLA'S CAPTURE
liordo.r Corre.spondent Reports That the American
Pursuers' Hands Are Tied and That the Mexi
cans Make Mockery of Our Troops.
Cltl.-fK, May J. A correNiondent of
tlm f.l eiiliitf A'ric.i who ha been at the
iron I with Gen. I'trshlng In Mexico
reached the border to-day and In nit
tinrenaorrd despatch s.nl lb" following
to his paper under an I'.l l'ao ilatc.
I'tatiolsco Villa I not found to-day,
whether he be alive or dead, because of
the xttltude of Carranza and the activity
of .irranza followers.
This Is the unanimous opinion of the
roiiiiuiiuillug otllcers of the United Mutes
.mil) now In Mexico who have bveti
dlrc.tlfiK the pursuit of the bandit. That
they are elucere and frutik In expressing
their belief Mnd that thorn la considerable
ground for It Is well known to th.e who
have been with the punltlvo expedition
throughout the campilgu.
Neither the activity of Villa nor the
valor of his otitUw followers haa pre
ente.l his capture or the. discovery of
his burlul place, according to officers of
the American army, I ibstaelca thrown lu
the way of the txpr.lltlon by the Car
ratu.i t!oertiineiit from the start and
the open hostility of Carr.inia soldlera
r sympathizers: whctieer tho trail be
eaine, warm are blamed for blocking the
pvrsult.
The United Htates ha paid for eross.
Ing the Ixjrder In lives, hardships Bnd
money. For tho army up to now It has
been un extellenl practice tnan.euvre
So far as lialng a frie hand to conduct
the search on military lines Is concerned,
the army, tuvordlng to Its officers, has
been like a man In 11 free for all fgbt
who l allowed to strike at only one of
the c'astva opponents, while all tho rest
can rain blows on him which he cannot
rnturn.
Hanita Tied. It ta t4.
The orders from Washington, say those
who received them, tend more to show
"what not to do" than to give a free
hand to proceed as the situation war
rants. Currantu has had free rein and
his followers nre aware nf this and have
had no compunction In taking a shot or
throwing a slur at tlm American forces
whenever pleasure dictated. The "what
not to do" Instructions were that ihese
shots must not be returned. Soldiers
hale not learned th scriptural admoni
tion, now a principle f American
diplomacy, ot turning th lelt chek If
slapped on the right one
The understrappers of the Carrann
forces hao quickly absorbed the spirit
ot their leaders. With the assurance
of thine of little weight, they liae been
Ueker to express It. They ure Imbued
with the belief that the I'nlted States
will submit to any Insult. Imposition or
wound without striking back and hae
Inculcated It In the Ignorant peons, the
unlettered and unwashed peasantry of
the barefoot nation.
The venerable Colonel of one of th
cavalry columns who, straining his men
and horses to the utmost, was within
two .!as of the tltelng Villa forces
when hulled by the treacherous attack
of the Carraiua forces at l'.trrul, one
day received .1 dapper oung Captain In
his camp.
The visitor, Wearing a Currants uni
form, vauntfd long and much of the
valor and strength of the Mexican army.
II.- pictured the dire consequences to the
t'nlted States If It should presume to
disagree with or right Mexico. The
Colonel with the diplomacy given by
experience attempted tn upen the cap
tain's ejes to other possibilities.
"Hut the United States is stronger. Is
so much larger and has so many more
men," said the American ortlcer.
"So has China more men, but they will
not tight, We Mexicans are valiant,
very brave, t have courage," replied

the faco of the Colonel bis opinion that
American, even thofo who wear the unl
fo' .,., are cowuiiIh and will not tight,
as the Colonel tills the Ineldent, but lie
left the Inference. Moreover, thla Is llf
opinion which not only orTlcis of th..
expedition, but civilian Americans fa
miliar with Mexican character say will"
be held by all Mexico uf the Amcrlonli
man should our troops be withdrawn In
the present circumstances. ;
Carranza, unable to govern or restore
order and safctv In Ida own rountvj, Is
dictating tn the Culled Slates.
The conditions In Chihuahua, where
our army Is operating, nr.. vastly dlffet-
ent from those other parts nf Mexico'
where the Carranza forces are stronger
and where they arc able to police the
country with reasonable elTectlven. si.
lu Justice to the Carranza Government
It might also be contended that tlie
have had a semblance of sway In C'J
northern Htalii for only a few- month.
Previously, It was the domain of Vllhi.
and thousand uf the Ignorant natives
there to-day recognize his name as the.
only symbol of military authority. !
The fact remains, however that all th.i
opposition to -iir es.iiition, 00 inoic
than one occasion costing American lives,
has er . either from Carranza soldiers
or a lawless element which the meagre
Carranza soldiery In the State so far
have been uniibl. to suppress or control
An "Inside" Mnry nf the Hald,
I out of the uticettaln y which has char
lacteriz.il the expedition with lied hands
and leet one Hotv whether all or part
truth only Washington can say looms
persl'tently from the veil of mystery.
It concerns the cause of Villa's appear
ance on the border preceding Iho Colum
bus massacre and Is told by tlmse with
the expedition as tending to show a vacil
lating policy which has prevailed In the
Mexican muddle from the first.
It It. well known that persons In the
I'nlted States Interested in exploiting
Villa as a picturesque or political char
acter knew of his expected arrival and
were lu Columbus several davs before
the raid waiting for him. The story Is
that thev were re.iHv In tv.v hi exoenses
1 . - " '
to Washington on the iirirtrietat'iuug that
I he would be, gtanted an audience there. I
I When Villa rea. lied the liordei It Is ald I
.the final word .ami thai h would not
he received. 1
This story continues that on March
the bandit chief started to lead his fob
lowers southward again The hungr)
horde mutinied and his a'ds accused
him or be'tig weak kneed He gave them
free hand and they attacge.l the town
Whether or not the prelude It correct,
It Is certain that Villa after that tuver
-topped running and has not carried out
any more threats to kilt Atr.er leans.
Whether the Carranza fotces can sup
press tl'- outlaws tu the State of Ch.
huahu.i Is a question. Whether Car
ranza can enforce discipline and stoj, the
looting of the countr.v side bv his own
officers and soldiers is the next, ques
tion. American army officers -'lve a ills

becoming from day to day more cordial.
The fot.rse Onsitlr of Petrograd In

ing! "I urn persuaded thut Germany will

which they have grown rich.
"That would evidently not be to thelt

ot the country of their origin. We have',
then, reason to believe that Germany
will yield to President Wilson's Juat
requirement. "
Iteferrlmj 10 tho spirit ot rtus-la In Its

Is quoted as SHtng:
"It would I... 11 great mistake to sup
