Villa Reports That Rebels Hold
Nothing But Barracks In
Juarez, Mexico, March 29.—
An official message from the
front tonight states that fight
ing is still going on for the pos
session of Torreon.
The telegram says the rebels
now hold all positions except the
main barracks and two smaller
barracks. In the last 24 hours
it is reported that General Villa
took Cerra de la Cruz and the
Torreon foundry. Another tele
gram admits a rebel loss in the
last six days of 900 killed and
wounded and places the Federal
loss at 2,000. As there already
are at Chihuahua 500 wounded,
the report of rebel losses is
thought to have been minimized.
Among the rebel wounded is
(fen Thomas Urbina.
It is said that private soldiers
taken prisoners are being taken
into rebel ranks, but their of
ficers are executed unless they
take the oath of iflegiance to the
Constitutional cause. All ir
regular troops in the Federal
garrison are executed on cap
There have been no newspaper
disp; ches dealing with the at
tack, md the similarity of this
situation with that a Gomez Pal

he permitted the newspaper men
to send their dispatches, but
when he was repulsed, as he was
twice, press messages suddenly
