arm and two on her shoulders. She would
scratch them until they would bleed. Some
times In combing her hair It would come out.

EL TASO. Tex., Nov. i7.-On hundred
and eighty-four wounded men are In the
Juaret hospitals tonight as a result of
the unsuccessful federal attack Upon
General Villa Is also back In Juarez.
Six thousand rebel troops are back In
Juarec. South of Juarcx for eighteen or
twenty miles, there are no rebel soldiers.
General Villa says ho has soma further
resources and that the city is well
guarded against a reappearance of the
ehemy. But General Villa has made no
effort to pursue the enemy.
General Villa captured a number of
federal field pieces and a number of
cars. This la apparent to anyone who
saw his army go out the other day
and then come back today. Horses
dragged fifteen field pieces, five were, on
the train that brought the rebel leader
himself and fjve more were brought In
tonight on the train that General Villa
eft on the field today in charge of the
burial squad. General Villa only had
nine guns when he went out.
The rebel chief said yesterday that
lie captured 500 federals. Today he
brought less than 200 to Juarez. He
admits executing some of them. Ap
parently the greatest number of dead
as a result of the fighting are those
who faced the firing squad and paid the
penalty of supporting the Huerta cause
rather than that of Villa, Madero or
Carranza, A trip over the battlefled
today failed to reveal but a Very few
dead bodies or newly made graves.
Bodies ot Kxecated.
Plenty of empty cartridge shells and
exploded shrapnels were found Upon the
field. Two newly made graves were seen
near Mesa, where General Villa mode
his headquarters, and two dead bodies
were loaded on a train at Mesa late
thla afternoon by the rebel soldiers while
a correspondent of the Associated Press
was present Both these bodies had their
hands tied and each had evidently died
at the hands of .executioners. These were
tho only dead or evidences of dtd seen
upon the field The correspondent entered
the field at Bauche, where the rebels had
the artillery: where they turned back tho
federal effort Monday to flank them on
the loft; traversed tho distance of the
rebel line to Mesa., zigzagging over the
field, then went straight south to tho
federal trenches, several miles from

result of the battle, other than execu

tance across the country to bury tnem.
The Associated I'ress corresponaent
climbed hills where fejleral cannon had
been planted, found dead horses occa
sionally, found many tracKa where men,
horses and cannon had busn wheeled
about, aw piles of discharged rifle shells
by tho thousands In the trench! and
walked great distances la the rear to
each side and to the front of the trenctus,
yet failed to find any fleshly turned
earth that would Indicate graves.
The same proceeding ws followed In
hn territory where the rebel lines and
fortifications lald. The two newly made
graves near Mesa and the two dead
bodies were all that rewarded the search.
There were other dead, for rebeU with,
spades were seen coming In from remote
sections of the field, but the death list Is
not heavy. The general belief Is that
most of the men who tilled the graves.
however, were men who were shot after
One of the points In favor of such a
conclusion Is the almoit undUturbed
character of the ground bwiwoin the two
battle lines. Tho distance Is six miles
and the fighting appears to have been
from one line to the othtir, with very
little activity between the two. The
ground Is scarcely dlnturbeJ on any of
the Intervening territory.
The rebels admit executing certain of
their prisoners and explain that only
such men as had volunteered for service
with the federals were thus disposed of.
The rebel army, riding into Juarez to
day from its victory south of the city,
exhibited many souvenirs ot the con
quest. Borne of the rebel soldiers wore
the blue uniforms ot the late federals;
divested of their brass buttons and army
Insignia. Many of the rebel officers wore'
capes and coats of federal officers and
one of the rebel captains wore a new
cap ot a federal officer. On tho whole,
however, the rebels had not decked
themselves wth many of the spoils of
war. They admitted removing tho uni
forms ot the men they executed before
shooting them, carefully explaining that
the clothing was thus not soiled by the
bullets of the rifles or the blood of tho
victim, and that It was necessary to
conserve all wearing apparel.
Practically all of the Villa fighting
army Is quartered in the city of Juarez
tonight. Nobody remains on the late
battlefield. It Is deserted and quiet. Only
an occasional lame horse, released by the
tebels because ot his further uselessness,
nibbles at the scant vegetation; this la
the only sign of life at the point where
10,000 men, at least, battUd yesterday
Threaten to Fire on Oil Tanks.
MBXICO CITY, Nov. 27. "Remove the
gunboat Bravo or we shall fire on the
oil tanks In the city of Tamplco and
atong the banks of the river above."
This threat, according to private infor
mation, received here today, was sent to
the commander of the federals at Tam
So long as the garrison at Tamplco Is
aided by the guns of the Bravo, -which
Is anchored In tho river just off Fiscal
pier, there appears to be little chance
for the rebels to rapture and hold the
city. But they might easily devastate
the entire region hy earning out this
threat to shoot at the tanks and fire
the oil, estimated at 100,000 barrels.
Should the oil In the tanks u Driver be
fired, the floating flame would be car
ried into the heart of the city, most ef-
b the gunboat, destroy all shipping and
probably a fair part of the town.
That the rebels will carry out their
threat Is regarded by' some ot the of
ficials here as by no means Improbable.

tion In bankruptcy was tiled this after
noon In the federal court for O. D. Wood
ward arid the Woodward & Burgess
Amusement company. Woodward's lia
bilities are stated as between (30,000 and
HO.O00 and those of the amusement com
pany are the same amount. In the peti
tion Woodward's assets ure named as
nothing and those of the amusement
company as 11,000, providing certain
theatrical property can be sold.
DENVER, Colo., Nov. 26.-0.' D. Wood
ward, manager of a local theater, tonight
explained that the bankruptcy proceedings
sought by the Woodward-Burgess Amuse
ment company waa simply a method of
clearing the obligations of tho company
which has not been In active business
for a year, since it gave up the Willis i
Wood theater in Kansas City.
Mr. Woodward stated that many dam
age suits had been filed against the
company and that since it had no assets,
bankruptcy was the best way to bring
them to a conclusion. Tho defunct com
pany operated In Kansas City, where It
leased two houses for many years and
In Omaha. ,
The company In which Mr. Woodward
Is connected here has nothing In common
with the Woodward-Burgess Amusement
Advent tn Omnhn.
O. D. Woodward's first appearance In
Omaha In the show business was about
fifteen years ago when he came here
from Sao City, la. Prior to that time
and for several years he had been run
ning road shows, playing one-night en
gagements. He came hero with the Idea
ot putting on a 10-cent show. None of
the theatrical managers would listen to
him, but finally during the summer sea
son, when the house would have been
closed, he secured Uie Orpheuni, which
Waa then known as the Crelghton.
The success ot the -venture was ap

son was half over he had no difficulty

showman and he went Into tho stock
business, organizing, companies and put
ting tlirm onto a circuit that he owned
and controlled. He built or' leased "houses
in Kansas City, fit. Joseph, Omcha, Sioux
City, Mankato and Bt Paul. This was
a winner and promised to make Wood
ward a rich man.
Enters Kansas City,
Woodward went to Kansas Qtty, where
he undertook to control the theatrical
business of that tpwn. He not only
leased one, but three theaters, playing
the attractions that he had built up,
"Finally the business became top heavy
and commenced to tumble and Wood
ward had to let go ot most of the prop
erty which he had accumulated. Litiga
tion followed and things went from bai
to worse. He lost tho leases on all of
the theaters and Is now In Di-nvcr play
