f Sn Antonio, Tex., ' June 23. i
? Whether the little force of the Tenth
' i United Sute cavalry under Captain
; Charlea T. Boyd fought it way out
t: iuccessfully through the ring of Mex
ican troops which had almost sur-
rounded it at Carriial Still was un
.' known, at General Funston's head
s' quarters today. No niws from Gen-
eral Pershing has been received since
. last night's report based on the sto-
ries of stragglers irom Carriral.
fc Fear that the casualties suffered by
i Captain Boyd's command had been
'very heavy was expressed by army
' officers here. It was pointed out that
' if twelve men had been killed, as re
ported through Mexican sources, it
would mean that thirty-five to forty
'had been wounded, according to the
These, with the number reported
Jfrom Chihuahua to have been cap
; hired, would actount for practically
; one troop, or 50 per cent of the com
mand. Indeed, from the reports
I available so far, it is by no means cer
tain that Captain Boydi command
i was not practically wiped out, '

' v According to the story told Gen-1

attack was entirely unprovoked and
was made after the Mexican forces
had partly surrounded the Americans
under cover of a parely between Gen
ral Gomel and Captain Boyd. It was
not until after the Mexicans had
- opened fire with a machine gun that
'Captain Boyd dismounted his com-
mand and returned the fire. '
' Aooarentlv. the men who made
' their way back to General Pershing's
i headquarters did not encounter the
two squadrons of the Eleventh cav

inforce the two trooos of the Tenth
and no report from this source had

Mexican Commander " Says They
Have Caused All the Trouble
Between Two Countries. '
BODY OF GOMEZ AT CBTEUAETJA
Chihuahua Citv. Mex.. June 23.
Criticism of American military men,
who he said have caused all the
trouble between Mexico and the
United States, was made by General
Jacinto Trevino, military commander
of the northeast, in an interview with
the Associated Press today.
General Trevino said that uenerai
Husrh Scott was evidently wrong
when he told the Mexican conferees
at the meeting in El Paso that the
American military men least 01 an
factors in the United States wished
to fieht against Mexico.
..-f. T" . .... ..
' lhe American military nas ais-
obeyed the orders ot its own cniets,
has never resoected the feelings or
the property of Mexican citizens and
haa' eontemotuouslv ignored the dis
positions of the Mexican govern
ment." declared the general. '
"I do not want war," added General
Trevino, "and I am doing my utmost
to control the situation, but if war is
forced on the Mexican nation by the
Americans, I am both ready and will
ing to do my duty, like every other
faithful son, to uphold the honor and
dignity ot my country.
Bodv of Gomes Arrives.
Officers arriving here today with
the body of General Felix Gomez,
who was killed in tha Carrizal en-
f;agement, said that the, American
eaders evidently had instructed their
men to concentrate their fire on the
general who, on account of his great
bulk, was an eaav target. Thev said
General Gomez was the first Mexican
to fall, with three bullets in his chest
From Colonel Zuazua at Namiquipa
comes the report that the Namiquipa
base has practically been1 abandoned
and that the Americans have given
the ranchers more than 200 rifles that
were taken from the Villistas.
General Trevino is still treating
with Contreras, Hernandez and other
Villa leaders to come in and help
excel the invaders.
All towns in Northern Mexico have
asked for arms, offering to equip
from 509 to 2,000 in each town to
help the government.
