'Labor needs to win this strike," said
Mr. Street today, "and I bellovo It will
win. i havo never seen men more de
termined than tho strikers. Their faml
lis are being well cared for by their
unions and they don't appear to have the
slightest thought of giving In." I
Mr. Street declared that It was appar
ent that tho tlUzons wero not in sym
pathy with tho strlko because most of
them wero in a measure dependent on

Nebraska Senator Called to White

Ilenl Import.
From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON," D. C, Jan. 2t-(Spe-
clal Telegram.) Senator Hitchcock upon
Invitation of President WllBon paid a
visit to the White Houso today, tho first
In many tnoons. It was tho real news
of tho day and tho correspondents saw
visions of a truco being declared betw
Hitchcock and Bryan overfyhe question
of Nebraska patronage though tho per
sonal influence of tho president nnd a
general getting together of tho two "old
cronies" of former days, for tho greater
.glory of tho party and tho return of
Hitchcock to, tho senate.
Tho senior senator from Nebraska
would not talk of his visit to the presi
dent. Ho refused to give even the sllgh-
cst suggestion of Its Import except to say
that tho visit was at tho president's In
An Viewed In Cnnltnl.
The Evening Star has this, to say of
the Hltchlck visit:
, -'Scnatet' HUehcook of- Nebraska made
IiIh first call oii 'l'resldenr Wilson today.
Tho visit was upon the invitation of tho
president, who probably wished the Ne
braska senator to feel that tho latch
string of tho White Hougo was out to
him the same as to any other democrat
Tho conference was a pleasant one, ap
parently. Secretary Bryan's entrance Into
the cabinet and tho turning over of Ne
braska patronago to him by tho adminis
tration brought a reluctance on tho part
of Senator Hitchcock to bother the Wliito
House, and ho lias never shown any ac
tivity In that section of the district. Ills
attitude on trust legislation, would It was
supposed, still further alienate him from
tho White Houbc, but tho presldelnt has
taken care that tills should not be bo.

CHIHUAHUA, Mex., Jnn. 2l.-Ordcrs

today for a concentration of rebel forces

rebels scattered In the stato of Durango
and Coahuila and the garrison In Juarcr.
wero ordered to Join thoso at Chihuahua,
with a vlow of preparing a formtdablo
front in tho projected rebel advanco
Evidences have multiplied that the fed-
orals at Torreon aro determined If possi
ble to check the rebellion at that point.
Torreon Is now tho northernmost federal
stronghold, In the heart of tho republic.
Tho federals hold that if tho revolutionary
movement from the north Is to bo halted
at all It must bo halted there, and that
tho loss of Torreon to the rebels would
leave the way open for Villa's advanco
to Saltlllo, Monterey, and cities near
Mexico City. Consequently, according to
reports received hero, tho federals aro
drawing all their available, soldiers to
ward Torreon in the hope of dealing a
decisive blow to the rebels.
General Villa said ho was not Inclined
to believe tho federals would evacuate
Torren. Ho therefore ordered to con
centrate all rebels who might be spared
from tho surrounding .country. Within
ten days ho said, his avallablo army for
tho campaign would number 15,000 well
equipped soldiers. General Villa him
self expects to lead the campaign, but
not until he first has visited Juarez, for
which place ho planned to leavo today.
The rebels ares already within striking
distance of Torreon. They occupy
Laredo and Gomez Palaclo, Important
Tho overthrow of Torreon by tho rebels
would leavo two routes open to Mexico
City. One would be directly southward
through Zacatccas and Aguas Callentc.
Tho other would be eastward through
Bnltlllo and Monterey and then South
ward throughivn,r.uta..PotosJ.,.
As an indication of lila . Intention to
head his troops and also ns an Instance
of the summary manner In wjilch he
appoints important officials, General
Villa while preparing to take tho train
for Juarez, turned to General Manuel
Chao in tho state palace today and said:
"General Chao, you are now governor
of the stato of Chihuahua, and I leave
everything in your hands while I go it
the head of my troops to dcthrono the
usurper of our liberties."
