Chihuahua, Jan. 22. Orders were is sued by Francisco Villa yesterday for a concentration of rebel forces along the railroad north of Torrcon. The rebels scattered in the states of Durango and Coahulla, and the garrison in Juraes were ordered to join those at Chihuahua Jiminez, and Santa Rosallia with a view of preparing a formidable front in the projected rebel advance southward. Evi dences have multiplied that the Federals at Torreon are determined if possible to check the rebellion at that point. Tor reon is now the northernmost federal stronghold in the heart of the republic. The federals hold that if the revolution ary movement from the north is to be stopped at all it must be halted there and that the loss of Torreon to the rebels would leave the way open for Villa's advance to Saltoillo Monterey, San Luis rbtosi, and cities near Mexico City. Consequently, according to reports received here, the federals are drawing ail their available soldiers toward lor reon in the hope of dealing a decisive blow to the rebels. General Villa said be was not inclined to believe the federals would evacuate Torreon. He, therefore, ordered to lie concentrated all rebels who might be spared from the surrounding country. ithin ten days he said his available army for the campaign would number lo.UUU well equipped soldiers. General Villa himself expects to ' I the cam paign, but not until he has iirst visited Juarez, for which pluee he planned to leave yesterday. The rebels are already within striking distance of Torreon. They occupy Lerdo and Comex Pahicio, important suburbs. The overthrow of Torreon by the rebels would leave two routes open to Mexico City. One will bo directly southward through Zecatecas and Agua Calientes. The other would be eastward through Saltillo and Mon terey and then southward through San Luhv Potosi. As an indication of his intention to Lead his troops and also as an instance of the summary manner in which he appoints important oftieials, General Villa, while preparing to take the train for Juarez, turned to General Manuel Chao in the state palace and said: "General Chao, you are now gov ernor of the state of Chihuahua, and I leave everything in your hands while I go at the head of my troops to dethrone the usurper of our liberties. Federals Leave Nuervo Laredo. One thousand Mexican federals left Nuevo Laredo yesterday under command of General Arturo Alvarez, ostensibly to attack a band of rebels camped several miles down the Bio Grande.
