GUARDSMEN TO RETURN SOON Gen. Funston Selecting Units To Be Returned to Home Stations in the Near Future. Washington.—Immediate withdraw a substantial number" of na al of tional guardsmen from the border has been ordered by the war department and Gen. Funston now is selecting the units to be sent home. In announcing the order Secretary Baker said the number to be withdrawn at this time probably would be 15,000 or 20,000. The secretary refused to comment on the order to say what relation it might have to the withdrawal of Gen. Pershing's expedition from Mexico. He said that the organizations to be withdrawn would be announced as soon as Gen. Flmston reported those he had designated. This withdrawal would reduce the force of state troops on the border to between 55,000 and 60.000 men. It is the policy of the department not to permit disintegration of the ra tional guard organizations and the in tention is to hold ever man in serv ice, though not under arms, regardless of the fact that his duty on the border has ended. All applications for discharge except for cause will be refused, and resigna tions of officers will be carefully ex amined and accepted only when the department is satisfied with the rea sons given. It was pointed out that acceptance of mauy of these resigna tions already offered was more or less in the nature of a weeding out process.

After defeating Gen.

Gen. Francisco Murguia, who had entrained to come to the border, went to Palomas with 800 troops and took personal command. The presence of Villa troops west of Chihuahua City, government agents believe, is the forerunner of the third attack upon the state capital by Villa. As Villa now controls the western part of the state, the agents say they fear he may attempt to occupy the ter ritory held by American troops as soon as Gen. Pershing withdraws. t The occupation of the border port of Ojlnaga, opposite Presidio, Tex., is, expected to be the next move of the Villa forces. Rumors of disaffection in the state of Sonora have been received here and the fact that a pro-Carranza American newspaper was stopped from going into that state has strengthened the rumors that de facto troops may join Villa. at of of P.
