CARRANZA FORCES KILL BANDITS IN TORREON ZONE Monterev, Hex , March -9 Carranm. forces under command of Kens Klizon do, Ignacio Ramos and Matias Itamos are in pursuit of Villlsta. bandits in the Laguna district and large numbers of them are being captured and shot. Gen Jacinto Trevino, who will have charge of operations in the Laguna. district and supervise the entire cam paign against Villa and his outlaws, has arrived here on his way to Torreon where be will establish permanent headquarters. Gen Trevino sayB the whole of his territory from Tampico north Is now absolutely peaceful. Large Laguna interests are delight ed with the coming of Gen. Trevino and believe his presence will result in a coordination of his subordinates and a quick cleaning up of the bandit forces. JUAREZ BARRACKS GIVEN INSPECTION BY GAVIRA Gen Gavira, commanding the Juarez garrison, was not at his headquarters Wednesday morning, but spent the day instead in an inspection of the barracks under his command. Ills aides stated that no news had come up from the headquartera of Gen Luiz Gutierrez, and that they were in the dark as to the whereabouts of Villa. The general feeling among the of ficers stationed in Juarez is that the crux of the border situation has been reached and passed and that the Wilson administration will have no cause to complain of the lack of cooperation on the part of the Constitutionalists. INFANTRY IS Big Regiment of Negroes and Part of Fifth Cav alry Enter Mexico. Arrivals from Columbus report Hiat all but two companies of the 24th in fantry (negro) entered 'Mexico Tues day morning. The long column also included the larger part of the Fifth cavalrs', save several troops that are being retained at Columbus for border patroL T train of auto trucks loaded with supplies accompanied the new column. Great quantities of supplies are be m grecclved in El Pabo bi the quarter master's department and onlv the most urgent consignments are going on to Columbus. This fact is taken to mean that the matter of shipment over the Mexico North Western is ncaring set tlement. Mnlex Supplant Trucks. Already the mue has supplanted the costlv motor truck, after the Casas Grandes countrj has been negotiated. A shipment of 179 of these animals was received Tuesday from St. Louis and 800 more are due at the base within the next several davs. Tha mules, according to reports brought to Kl Paso, are given a two weeks' rest after they make the trip from the countrv "down there" and full peace rations That the animals are standing up well under the tax upon their energy and strength is shown by the fact that one of one batch of 108 which did strenuous work, only seven died. Hookies llroken In. In addition to Columbus being a ren dezvous for mules that are being bro ken in, there are also a colony of raw rookies that are learning the ropes. Kightv -seven of these chaps arrived at the base a week ago and In another week will be in readiness to be sent to the front to fill the gaps and vacancies caused by sickness and misfortune among tbe Infantry ranks Uncle Sam Seizes Relics Oi Villas Columbus Raid Doming. N M.. March 59 Uncle Sam stepped in and spoiiea a line ais play of souvenirs from the Columbus raid which Morris Nordhaus was tak ing east in a packing case He had gathered a number of saddles, blankets, pistols and otlfer relics of the raid and planned to show them in Kansas City, Chicago and other eastern cities. When he reached Kansas City government agents met him at the train and informed him that the gov ernment considered his souvenirs as the property of the United States. The goods were seized after Nord haun offered to give bond for the safe return of the articles he was taking east for his display $8,611,502 AVAILABLE FOR ARMY IN VILLA CAMPAIGN Washington. D C, March 39 The sum of $8,611,502 will be immediately at the disposition of the war depart ment for the pursuit of Villa, congress having rushed through an emergency appropriation to that effect The money will be available for the purchase of aeroplanes motor trucks and all needed supplies, as well as for the equipment of the additional troops which the army is allowed to recruit Explains Why Coffee Hurts Many Dr. W. A. Evans, prominent Chicago physician, who edits the "'TJow To Keep Well" columns of the Chicago Tribune, said in that publication, under date of March 7, 1915: "Coffee is a drug. Those who are addicted to its use are drug addicts." "From the standpoint of public hygiene the coffee question is worth while. It is the most widespread form of drug addiction." Some coffee drinkers go on for years without seeming harm, but with others the telltale effects of the drug, caffeine, in coffee, show in various ills and discomforts, such as headache, biliousness, indigestion, nervousness, sleep lessness and heart disturbance.

High power radio stations may be built along the bqrder to provide for continuous communication, night and day. The army now has a 250 kilowatt station at San Antonio, and the construction of two more, one at HI Paso, and one at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., has been recom mended. It is possible that some army plant elsewhere in the United States ma be moved to the border for this purpose 1 Ith the high power stations it w ould be possible, signal officers say. to reach the field troops far south in Meilco at any time The low power field equip ment would not be able, however, to reach the border stations except under favorable conditions. The San Antonio plant is now able to talk with Omaha, direct. N Excitement in Mexico. Official reports from consults in Mex ico again today dwelt on tho lack of popular excitement there over the en try of American troops. Consul Letch er at Chihuahua city, s6nt the follow ing "Gov. Enrlquez published yes'erdav (March 26) an address to Chihuahua citizens recounting circumstances of the Columbus incident and the Ameri can expedition consequent thereupon and calling upon their patriotism to remain calm and give the Mexican gov ernment the fullest support in the pres ent crisis. This address. In my opinion, will have a favorable effect locally, in v lew of frequent publication at the bor der of alarming reports regarding con ditions here. 'Under these circumstances. It ap pears most regrettable that border news agencies should continue to Impute to authorities and people here, actions eontrarj to the foregoing facts." Vb llnnslnc of Mexican Troops. The following paraphrase of n offi cial telegram from Douglas also was made public: ' I have Investigated statements tele graphed from here to the effect that there has been concentration of Mexi can troops at Agua Prieta. opposite Douglas "I saw Gen. Calles. in command of the forces of the do facto government, who gave me permission to Investigate personally. I found 400 men at Agua Prieta, but saw no artillery.

Three months ago an officer of the signal corps was here and made an inspection of conditions at the fort and in Kl Paso with a view to establishing a powerful wireless sta tion at the fort. It is understood that this recommendation favored the erec tion of such a plant In Kl PaBO. The present radio plants In use for communicating between the border and the front in Mexico are said to be too small to carry the valume of business made necessary by the operations in Mexico. The original plan of using the old federal wireless station near Washing ton park has been abandoned. The equipment is not of the same design as that now in use by the army field wire less and the only things that could be used about the old plant would be the high towers These, however, are not suitably loiated for the use of the army and it Is doubtful if anj part of the plant will be used by the army AIRPLANE MAKERS WANT .

C, March 29 Air plane manufacturers have evinced a desire to cooperate with the govern ment in developing satisfactory war planes, secretary of war Baker said to day.

Pershing would be supplied as Boon as possible, the secretary said The Aero club of America has offered the war department two of the latest type of airplanes at Jl each. The nomi nal figure was placed on tbe machines because an outright gift would be illegal. OPHELIA Ci HWKWfaOw II ,,,l,.fc I at Elyria Memorial hospital.
