Telegraph Operators at Madera and Cusihuriachie
News that Notorious Outlaw's Life of Murder
and Rapine is Ended
(My Associnlotl Press.)
EL PASO, April 16. Mexican Commander Garcia
announced today that messages have been received from
military headquarters at Juarez from telegraph opera
tors at Madera and Cusihuriachie, stating that the body
of Francisco Villa was being brought into Cusihuriachie
and that it will later be taken to Chihuahua City.
' Garcia said he had wired military commander at
Madera for confirmation. Neither telegraph operators
stated in messages where body of Villa was found.
Garcia announced he had received a message from San
Antonio that a special train, was being made upw at that
point to take the body of Villa to Chihuahua City. Garcia
says the body is being brought to San Antonio by Carlos
Carranza, nephew of General Carranza.
EL PASO, Tex., April 16. Francisco VilJa is dead and his body, disintered some days
after his burial, is in possession of the Carranza troops, according to a series of telegraphic
messages received in Juarez today by the Mexican officials.
For more than a week reports that Villa had died from wounds have been current both
here and in Juarez. Today's "accounts were;the most circumstantial and apparently reliable
yet received. They were accepted with reserve by American officials including General Bell,
but the Mexican officials expressed confidence in their reliability. ' The messages, in the order
in which they were received, were as follows:
"The dispatcher of the Mexican Northwestern railroad at Juarez reported to General
Gabriel Gavira, Carranza commander at Juarez, that he had heard a conversation over the
telegraph wires to the effect that Villa's body was in the hands of he Carranza troops.
"General Gavira notified Consul Andres Garcia here, who rushed messages to the tele
graph operators at Madera and Cusihuiriachic asking for confirmation.
"The Madera and Cusihuiriachic operators answered confirming the report and stating
that the body was being taken to Chihuahua City.

The question is this:
