at Juares by Oeneral Gavira from
Small hope Is felt that Oeneral
Bortanl will be able to bring help to
the Mormons as the cavalry force of
500' he commands Is stationed at

broken, roadless country. ' Ten
trains, containing 2,000 men, left

Rlshop Get Meseaae.
It was to rescue thee people that' the
Mormon colony of El Paso dispatched a
meesenger Immediately on news of the
Columbus massacre, and special trnlns
were expected to start Immediately with
the refugees. Bishop Hurst, head of the
local church, received urgent messages
today from the Salt Leke City headquar
ters of tbe Mormon sett asking that he
take all possible precautions against hl
ro-rcllglnnlsts being caught In a trap In
Cases Grandes. The bishop conferred
with the Mexican railway officials over
train arrangements and with General
Gavira regarding military protection. '
Since troops had alresdy started from
Chihuahua City It was decided that they
would be first on hand and the protection
of the refugees was entrusted to their
care. The question now Is whether the
refugees ton be gathered In In time.
. Dash Through Hills.
From the reports received from General
Bertanl,. Villa and his men early in the
day were dashing through the mountains,
into which they had been chased by the
American cavalry following the Coturnbus
raid. Scouts reported that Villa was evi
dently relying on- relays of horses, of
which he is said to have great numbers,
In order to bead off the Mormons. He
was reported swinging Westward In the
direction of the Casas Grandes river.
Upon receiving newe-of Villa's apparent
drive against the Morn.on farmers, Oen
eral Gavira called., in. all outlying, bodies
of troops that had been engaged In hunt
ing tba VllllHta bandits in the Galeana
and S-m Ruenventura section In order to
mass a force for use at whatever point
an emergency may arise.
Villa is believed here to have left the
Mormons unmolested on his., northwurd
expedition in order . to allay, suspicions
as -to his plan., Following the decision
of tle Pajj-Amcrlcan conferees to recog
nise Carransa, Villa', was said.' to have
told a delegation .of Mormons who had
saked ' for the return . of their, stolen
horses that they . would probably ; not
need the horses for future work;as they
might not harvest another crop.',' ' '
WOMEN MUST NOT DRESS
EXTRAVAGANTLY IN BRITAIN
LONDON,' March ;11. The 'atlon : says
ganixing committee for War sav.ngs. has
issued an appeal against "extravagance
In women's dress." which says that while
many, women have recognised that elab
oration and variety In dress Is bad form,
in the present crisis', there still, are a
large number, both among the rich and
those not so well to do, to whom the
war appears to have made little differ
ence with respect to their apparel. .
"New clothes," the appeal concludes,
"should be bought only when absolutely
necessary. These' should be durable and
desirable on all occasions. Luxurious
forms of hats, boots, shoes, stockings,
gloves and veils should be avoided." '
