Douglas, Aris. - Whether Gen. Francisco Villa Intends to press home his attack on Agua Prieta or. pass up the border town and play or big ger game, the western coast cities of Guaymas sand Maatli, whlh would give him ports for securing much needed supplies, is a problem that is puzzling both the American army ot lcers here and the Carransa forces in Agti Priets. The Villa army began to move from Agua Prieta toward Naco and that town reported 500 Villa troops a& ready had reached there. Approxi mately 4,000 others were reported by train passengers as having been seen along the road leadihg toward Naco. It is known, too, that Villa agents have been endeavoring to purchase much needed supplies of flour and corn, and preparations have been made at Naco to take care of those wounded in the fight around Agua Prieta. On the other hand, Gea. Calles' scouts report that the main body of Villa's army, re-enforced during the day by an unknown number of men from the east, is still within a few miles of Agua Prleta. Villa has sue ceeded in getting near to water sup ply at Calladones and Anavacachi pass and limited food supplies also have reached him. Every preparation was made in Agra Prieta for another attack. Gen. Ruston. commanding American .forces. also made preparations by posting troops at vantage points in Douglas and moving them away from lmme diate contact with the border. Strict orders have been issued to keep residents of Douglas far away from the tnternational line. This was merely a precautionary measure. The general opinion among American army omcers is that Villa has fooled the Carransa forces; that he merely nibbled at Agu Prileta, and finding it much tougher than he ex pected, will now ignore it, with its much coveted supplies of provisions and ammunltion, and after his army is thoroughly rested and provisioned witt strike down through Hermoslilo and Magdalena to the west coast for a campaign of much greater Import ance. A briet interview between Gem. Funst3n and GeL Villa took place over the barbed wire fence marking the int:rnational line, a short distance from Agua Prieta. At that time Gen. Villa assured Gean. uston that he wished to avoid bringing American troops into the conflict What eise was said is not known. Gea. Pun ston will not talk. Norwegian Ship Is Sunk.

CANNOT SUBMIT TO CUR TAILMENT OF ITS NEU TRAL RIGHTS. NOTE CONTAINS 15.000 WORDS Alleged Violations of American Rights Presented to Great Britain-Eng land Held U. S. to Account When Latter Was Fighting. Washington.- The 'nited States, in its latest note to ;reat Britain, made piublic here. c(vtrint exhaus tively British interference with Amer ican trade since the beginning of the European war. declares that the so called hblockade instituted by the al lies against enemy countries on March 11 is "ineffective,. illegal and indefen sible." Notice is served that the government "cannot submit to the curtailment of its neutral rights," and it cannot "with complacence suffer further subordination of Its rights and interests." Ambassador Page, to whom the note was sent by special messenger for de livery to the London foreign ofce, was instructed by Secretary Lansing "to impress most earnestly" upon the British government that the United States "must insist that the relations between it and his majesty's govern ment be governed not by a policy of expediency, but by those established rules of international conduct to which Great Britain in the past has held the United States to account when the latter nation was a belliger ent engaged in a struggle for nation al existence." Declaring the United States "un hesitatingly assumes" the task of championing the integrity of neutral rights, the note proclaims that the American government will devote, its energies to the task, euercslg'- al. ways an impartial attitude.
