EL PASO, Tex.. Nov. 18.-What has
been the fate of Joseph H. Francis,
former alderman of Chicago and one
time president of the Automobile club of
that city, was a question that author

supposed to have rome to Juarez from
Terrazas on the troop train that carried
Villa's troops to attack that city early

Chicago last night has caused General
Villa to Institute a search, which he
declared would extend to opening the
gravesof dead foreigners today.
