In Columbus, N. M., When1
Jump to Ground and Run
for a Restaurant.
COLUMBUS, X. M., March 18.?
(Passed by censor)?Sixty factory
mechanics, who arrived today from
Racine, Wis., to propare the motor
trucks Tor Held use, caused excitement
when after being aboard the
train Bereral hours without rood, they
iiimnpri tn thn ernnnd And with a
shout started for the leading restaurant.
Columbus forthwith became so
excited that the military patrol was
hurried to the spot.
Additional evidence of the tightening
of the censorship was contained
in the failure of the local weekly paper
to print anything today, Its regular
press day. except special notices.
There was nothing else which the
proprietor considered he had a right
to print.
The local telephone company also
Mas warned that only officers or men
of the army whose names were included
in a list provided should be
permitted to use the long distance
lines. The only civilians permitted
to use the toll lines are residents of
Colutnbus or persons well known to
the telephone operators, newspaper
correspondents being barred.
The arrival of the trainload of motor
truckB made it certain that the
American forces In the field will be
amply supplied wherever they may
go. It became known today that the
American expeditionary force is taking
every precaution against, disease
which has followed four years of
civil warfare in northern Mexico. All
along the border, also, medical officers
of the United States immigra
lion service are taking increased care
to prevent the introduction into the
United States ot smallpox, which Is
rampant in Mexico, particularly in the
western part of Sonora. All correspondents
were obliged todny to register
and present credentials at military
headquarters. Major Sample, the
censor, frankly informed them that
their services would be of little value
hero and intimated that the censorship
may be extended to other border
towns. The ruins of tho Commercial
hotel have been searched for souvenirs.
Several sabres, presumably
dropped by Villa officers, have been
picked up.
Train after train of food, forage,
clothing and other impediment of
war, havo been unloaded here. Occasionally
a creaking wagon train
made its dusty way out of tho camp
southward, but its destination was
not announced.
