that conscription at least Is postponed.

by Premier Aaqulth. before any calls are
made for married men who volunteered
under the Derby plan.

NO MERCY FROM CARRANZA
EL PASO, Tex., Dec. 18. General
Francisco Villa has withdrawn from
the Mexican revolution, according to
authentlo advices today from Chi
huahua City, where a council ot war

want to sacrifice you. I will go to the
border, cross to the United Btates if

Chihuahua appears In telegrams from

from Villa a promise to retire and ask
ing a conference with Obregon upon the

of the Villa government at Juares, were
brought across the border here today.
The officers' quarters In Juares were re
ported dismantled and troop trains were
said to be proceeding to Chihuahua City.
Report Not Confirmed.
The State department tonight had re
ceived from Its agents in Mexico no con
firmation of the report that General V illa
had decided to abandon his campaign
