HERRERA LOYAL TO
DE FACTO REGIME
GoTernor Enriquei Says Herrera ii

GOVERNOR'S DENIAL SPECIFIC
GAL.VE8TON. Tex., March 23
General Luis Herrer It conducting
active military operations against the
Villa forces and has not gone over
to the bandit leader, according to a
cablegram from Mexico City, received
by the Mexican consulate here today.
Tbls menage says that the Herrera
campaign against the Villa force Is
being waged In southern Chihuahua
KL, PASO, Tex., March 23. Ignaclo
Hnrlquez, civil governor of the state
of Chihuahua, sent a telegram to
Consul Garcia at EI Paso today de
claring that General Luis Herrera,
commanding the garrison at Chihua
hua City, still was loyal to the first
chief and not to credit reports of his
defection to Villa.
Consul Garcia made public mewing,
from Governor Enriquei, which read:
"Tour ttifjtf referring to the prena
.report regarding- General tula Herrera
received, t have juat eh ken handa with
Herrera and he In loyal to the legal gov
ernment of Mexico. lo not give credit
to report In tfila matter."
Reporta ef General Herrera revolt
were heard at army headquarters yester
day and from private advlcea received
here. They were credited, but an abso

Whether or not the report of Herrera's
defection waa oorroct It waa obvious that
In military circles much apprehension
waa felt over the situation at Chihuahua.
Brigadier General Bell aald ha had been
advised everything waa quiet In Juares,
and while his reports Indicated there waa
a Villa aentlment In Juares, ha regarded
the situation aa satisfactory. The gen
eral aald every precaution had been taken
to meet any possibility of an uprising In
General Belt aald that ha bad no Infor
mation regarding a vague report that
General Pershing bad taken over the
Mexican Northwestern railroad south of
Caaaa Grandee and that troops were be
ing moved aouth from that point by rail
road. The general did not know where
tho report came from. The military baae
at Columbus had not beard of the re
ported seisiire of the railroad.
General Bell added that Major General
Funaton had not advised him concerning
any change of the army base from Co
lumbus to El Paso, but that the tranafer
could be quickly effected.
Railway nadir Needed.
An early agreement with the Carrania
government for the permission to use
Mexican railway line la greatly desired
by army officer. The main base would
then be transferred from Columbua to
this city and the Mexico Northwestern
railway could be uad to ship men and
aupptlea to Cases Grandee. The railroad
could b easllyftnalntatned against Inter
ruption, while the present line south
ward out of Columbus over a desert
might be readily cut should Villa re
cruit a formidable body of men. Villa

populace In the mountain districts urg
ing, them to support him against the
Americans. The outlaw la reported ' to

ammunition, which ha haa had cached

There la no confirmation of a report
that Colonel Cano of Carransa's army
has Joined forced with Villa.
All waa quiet In Juatts early today and
street ear service, which waa suspended
last night for fear of trouble In that
Mexican city, was resumed thla morning.

All night long El Paso waited aleep

would tell that the long expected out

The situation In Juares remains mostly
a subject of conjecture with auch items

a decidedly atnlster aspect, it la known
that a bitter feud exists between the
mayor, Manuel Prleto, and tha military
commander, General Oabrlel Gavlra.
I-rleto is a staunch Carranalsta, while Ga
