Th War department waa thrown Into
a state of excitement here today by tele
graphic reports of the arrival of a largs
band of Insurgents in the vicinity of
Juares. U opposite V. raso, and of
serious fighting in the outskirts of the
town. These reports, it was explained at
the department, 'came from army

There ts general belief: here that to
Mexican will respect a neutral son and
will not lnts even a temporary Invasion
of American troops.
. Senator Stone of Missouri Introduced a
resolution todsy directing ths foreign
Istlons committee to make an Inquiry Into
the conditions on the Mexican border and

Mexican Consul E. C. Llorente. In Ei
Pso, says Pancho Villa and to) ' loyal
