: Washington, June 24. Stripped of
its, $I'l0D0,00trrelie'f provision for fami
lie.of militiamen, the senate military
committee ordered favorably reported
the Hay resolution adopted by the
house yesterday to authorize drafting
the National Guard into the service
of the 'United' States.. A substitute for
the relief ' provision directs that
guardsmen having dependent families
should be discharged at once.
. The senate committee also elimi
nated the provision that the' militia
men ti be drafted into the regular
service should serve "not exceeding
three years," thus providing that they
shall remain in service "for the period
of the emergency." As passed the
measure' stands virtually as it first
was introduced in the house.
Senator Chamberlain, chairman of
the committee, announced he 'would
report the amended resolution later
today and would ask unanimous con
sent for its immediate consideration
and adoption.
The committee was practically
unanimous in voting to eliminate thr
$1,000,000 relief section.
"It ia unnecessary for the govern
ment to assume a burden of this kind
at the outset of such a campaign,"
said Senator Weeks. "If there are
men in the militia now who have fam
ilies dependent' upon them they
should be discharged. They should
remain at home and care . for their
families. There, are plenty, of able
young men." "

Chihuahua, Mex.,' June 24. Ameri
can columns have been seen advanc
ing from- the American field base in
the direction of Salt Antonio and Ojo
Caliente, and General Jacinto Trevlno
has issued orders to attack them if
they do pot immediately retreat.
General Trevino said the Americans
would get the same treatment that
they received at Carrizal, as he is de
termined to carry out his orders to
the letter. , -
In this, he said, he had all his sub
ordinates with mm, and- thev will
stick with him in case of a rupture.
The Mexican .commander said to-'
day that it seemed probable, inas
much as General Pershing seemed ig
norant of the fate of the Boyd col
umn, that- outside of five -additional
prisoners now being brought here the
Americans were annihilated, although
it -was possible more had escaped.
General Pershing has wired here for
the names of the -dead and the pris

at Chihuahua; had passed on "their

that an answer would cortie. in three

The statement recounts i suppbserf
opinion by Spillsbury that ' Captain
Boyd was imbued witli the idea that
ah action; would bring him quick
promotion and also that the Mexicans
would back down on a show of force.
It credits the scout 'with having
argued with Lieutenant Adair on the
evening before against moving into

The prisoners were assaulted by Mex

and Hove and Alexander of Troop C.
According to a statement said to
have been signed by Spillsbury, which
was made public today by General
Trevino, neither he nor the negroes
knew which side began the firing.
Spillsbury's statement says that
Troop C was first to advance against
the Mexicans. It adds that practically
all the Americans who lost their lives
were killed when they advanced to f.
deep ditch in which Mexicans were
stationed, and when other Mexicans,
getting around to a deep ditch in their
rear, attacked them from the flank.
Only Forty-Three Missing.
Columbus, N. M., June 24. All of
the American force which engaged
the Mexicans at Carrizal have re
turned to the field base, excepting
Captains Boyd and Morey, Lieutenant
Adair and forty troopers, according
to a report brought here today by ar
rivals from the interior.
The three officers are believed dead.
According to this report the total
of American dead in the battle prob
ably was twenty-six-, unless some of
the troops still are wandering in
search of the expeditionary force.,
Seventeen prisoners have, been' taken'
to Chihuahua City. '
Mexican reports that twelve
American dead were found on the
scene of the engagement, would in
dicate, if the latest details are cor
rect, that fourteen troopers, either
are dead from their Wounds, Or were
killed in later fighting or have not
succeeded in reaching their base.
It is said that the survivprs of the
expedition to Carrizal reached the
American camp late yesterday. The
men were found in scattered bunches
by a relief party.
Not one of the men could give the
slightest intimation as to the where
abouts of Captain Boyd and Captain
Morey ana Lieutenant Adair.
Other relief parries are searchirlg

Paris. June 24. The battle of Ver
dun1 continued last night with the ut
most violence on both sides of the
Meuse. The war office announced to
day that the French have regained
large part of the. ground lost north
east of Verdun near Hills No. 320
and 321. '
Undertaking a vigorous offensive,
the French drove back the Germans
over the ground which they won yes
terday." The battle was particularly ,
violent in the vicinity of Fleury. The
French did not succeed in regaining
possession the Thiaumont works;.; :
More than .six German- divisions,
participated m the offensive actions '
east of the Meuse yesterday. . -
Late- details show that yesterday's
fighting near Verdun equaled in fury
anything yet experienced. It was only
by the last overwhelming rush when,
the defenders were worn out , and
thinned by many hours ot bombard-.
ment that the enemy succeeded in:.
rushing the Thiaumont works and; .,
the adjacent advanced trenches."
The Thiaumont, fortification cov
ered the approaches to Fleury and
the enemy hoped to continue the
charge and sweep away the defenders
of the latter place, but the -French .
counter-attacked with such vigor that '
it was, able only to cling , to the po- ..4
sitions first gained, which it . was -busily
engaged in strengthening all
night in preparation for fresh at- .
tempts to push its advantage:
The enemy's' losses are placed af
