MM H BMW Villa Sweeps North Mexico EL PASO, Tex., Nov. .19. The army of Gen. Fran cisco Villa continues to sweep through the state of Guan ajuato, on its way to Mexico City, almost without opposi tion. Troops are gathering in that state for the rapid dash against Mexico City. A brigade under command of Gen. Eugenio Bena vides occupied Guanajuato, capital of the state of the same name, during the night. There was no fighting, as the Carranza defenders fled. This movement gives Villa's army practically all of western Guanajuato. Provisional President Gutierrez has riachsd ., Leon from Auguas Calientes' and Villa last night went to the former city for a conference. Arrangements are being made to transfer the provisional capital from Aguas Cal ientes to the south. Gutierrez will return to the convention city to discuss the matter with the peace delegates. There is little doubt that a battle of large proportions is imminent east of Irapuato. it will come when Villa starts against Mexico City. Carranza has mobilized a formidable force between Irapuato and Queretaro to resist n this advance, but so far the outposts of the armies have not clashed.
