hours, during which he made fruit

vino's protecting works by assault.
El Paso, Tex, Nov. 23. General
Trevino repulsed a fourth mass at
tack by Villa forces late today, the
-bandits being driven from their tem
porary entrenched positions with
heavy losses, it was announced in
Juarez tonight. The de facto troops
are now pursuing the bandits toward
the south, the same report from Chir
huahua City states.
Juarez, Mexico, Nov. 23. Three
times today Francisco Villa attacked
the first line trenches which defend
. Chihuahua City, and three times he
was repulsed, leaving his dead and
wounded on the plains outside of the
city to the south, according to mili
tary dispatches received by General
Francisco Gonzales at military head
quarters here from the besieged city.
. At 11 o'clock a. m. today (moun
tain time) the high-crowned hats of
the bandits were seen to the south,
along the Mexican Central main line,
'according to these messages. The bat
, tie was opened a few minutes later
with a salvo from cannon on Santa
Rosa hill, the key to the state cap
ital. The .first and second line
trenches, protected by barbed wire
entanglements, took up the fighting
and by noon a general engagement
was in progress along the entire
southern railroad, which continued to
early afternoon. ' .
Cannon Roar Deafening.
At that time the booming of the
large caliber guns on Santa Rosa and
other artillery stationed at intervals
along the first line trenches was so
. deafening that.it.was ajmpsj tapo.ssi
ble to hear the click of the telegraph
instruments, the military operator in
' Chihuahua City told the operator in
- Juarez. '
At 3 o!clock the battle was still
raging, the apparent advantage being
with the government forces. Villa is
reported by General Gonzales to have
at least 3,500 men,, practically all of
whom are armed and mounted. He
is also believed to have machine guns,
but no heavy artillery. For this reason
the twenty or more heavy field guns
of General Trevino's command were
able to rake the advancing lines of
Villa bandits, the messages from the
state capital stated. The field was
covered with dead and dying men, one
message stated. . -
A sortie by Carranza cavalry, sup
ported by artillery, resulted in the
capture of many Villa prisoners, who
were without ammunition and had
gone since morning without food or
water, another message declared.
Carranza officers here arc optimistic
reeardine the outcome of the battle
at Chihuahua City. The only cause of
worry to them is the fact that Gen
eral Trevino's ammunition supply for
small arms and machine guns is lim
ited and it is feared the attack will be
prolonged by Villa in an effort to
exhaust this ammunition supply.
However, the supply of artillery
shells is ample, it is said, to keep the
bandits away from the city.
. It was hoped by the Mexican mili
tary that General Francisco, Murguia
and his division from Torreon would
reach Chihuahua City soon, but late
today a message was received in
Juarez saying General Murguia had

HIGH STANDARD OF HONOR
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Now. 23. (Special.) Al
though not a recipient in an official
way of the results of the democratic
land slide, Governor Morehead feels
that the country really has cause for
thanksgiving for a few things, one of
them being that "the horn of plenty
is pouring its riches at our feet."
Following is the proclamation as
it relates to Thanksgiving day:
To the people of the state of Ne
braska, greeting: It is my pleasure as
governor of the state, to again call
attention to the near approach of that
season so dear to very American citi
zen, in the festivities of which there
is no semblance of sectionalism, but
in which all join in one accord to give
thanks for the gifts which God in his
providence hath bestowed.
"The year draws to a close with
the horn of plenty pouring its riches
at our feet. We can be thankful for a
great past, a happy present and a
splendid outlook to the future. Ne
DEMAND OF ENTENTE
Cabinet Declines to Turn Over
Guns and Ammunition Asked
by Admiral DuFouf net.
WOULD BE UNNEUTRAL ACT
London, Nov. 23. The Greek gov
ernment has refused to comply with
the demand of the entente allies for
the surrender of part of its supplies
of arms and ammunition, Reuter's
Athens correspondent cables.
The dispatch follows:
"The Greek government has re
fused the demands of Vice Admiral
DuFournOt that Greece surrender
eighteen field batteries, sixteen bat
teries of mountain artillery with 1,000
shells for each, 40,000 Mannlichers
with 220 cartridges each, fourteen
machine guns with ammunition and
fifty motor vans.
"Referring to Admiral DuFour
net's contention that the cession of
war material to the Bulgarians and
Germans had disturbed the equili
brium, the government replies that,

into the- details of that, operation, it
must point out that the cabinet then

The reply concludes that the sur
render of war material for financial
compensation or otherwise would
constitute a flagrant violation of neu
trality and moreover that public
opinion, would not admit of the forces
of Greece being so neutralized as to
be unable to defend its vital interests
if esc were endangered."

Paris, Nov. 23. In the amphi
theater of the Sorbonne today was
held the first of a series of meetings
which will carry throughout this
country to civilians and to the sol
diers at the front the story of what
America has done for France during
the war. The meeting was held by
official approval under the auspices
of the association known as "The
Effort of France and Its Allies." Alex

war, delivered the principal address.
M. I Millerand spoke with great

RECORD COST -TOO LARGE
Washington, Nov. 23. The physi
cal valuation of the New Orleans,
Texas & Mexico railway, announced
today by the Interstate Commerce
commission, places the cost of. repro

capitalized at $40,938,031.
The report shows the original cost
ot the line equipped was Sli,ly4,ZJI
The record cost of road equipment
was found unduly large.
"The issue of $28,000,000 tonds,"
the report says, is really a portion
of an authorized issue oi $50,000,000,
and, although the issue is really a
part ot the capitalization of the New

afternoon in defense of himself in
the suit in which Senator F. F. Jones
of Villisca is suing him for $60,000
tor attempting to implicate Jones in
the Villisca murder of 1912.
Wilkerson testified that he was a
Burns detective and that he was as
signed in April, 1914, to investigate
the Villisca murder. Asked if he had
ever known Senator Jones, W. B.
McCaull, William Mansfield or Harry
Whipple betore that time, he said that
he had not, and that he held no malice
against any living soul.
When asked about the conversa
tion between himself and W. L, La
marr of Chariton, lie said that La-
marr told him that he, Lamarr, had
been employed by Attorney General
George Cosson to investigate the
Villisca murder, but that he had (lis
covered no evidence connecting Jones
with the murder. Lamarr was .for
merly employed by Jones.
Wilkerson told also of a conversa
tion between himself and "Hank"
Morton, city marshal of Villisca, in
which Horton said that on the morn
ing after the murder Jones followed
him upstairs into the city hall and
said, "Hank, I hear the Joe Moore
family has been murdered. They
ought to get Van Gilder, (for he had
trouble with Joe Moore."'
Sheriff O. E. Jackson of Red Oak
also was on the stand during the af
ternoon and exhibited the blood
stained ax which he said he found
in the Moore home the next morn
ing after the murder. .

This was decided in resolutions
adopted by the association before ad

phraseology used by Secretary Short
hill in his recommendations through
his annual report, the resolution on
this subject said, "It is unfair for
the federal government to single out
grain and '.grain productus upon
which to levy an embargo. If it is
just to stop the adanve in price of
these products, it is just to legislate

same products, yet there is no record
anywhere of any measure having been
introduced in any legislative body
seeking to raise the price of products
when they were selling too low."

The association also reaffirmed its
opposition to any increase in freight
rates in Nebraska until a physical

The association, through its reso

and state organizations of farmers to

it is the largest in the state.

sel in conference over the Adamson
law cases today agreed to the request
that the Santa Fe case scheduled to
come up in the United States district
court in Kansas City, Kan., be post

thoritatively, was as' to whether the

supreme court yesterday, could be
made to cover the problems of all
railroads, or whether one- or two ad
ditional test cases should be brought.
Attorneys for leading railroads who
are here to witness the proceedings
pointed out informally that the opera
tion of the law varied in its effect on
different railroad systems according
to extent and local conditions and
said that close study would be re
quired to determine whether one
case would develop the points affect
ing all railroads.
A difference id the case heard yes

Washington, Nov. 23. Railroad
lawyers and Attorney General Greg

in an attempt to agree on one suit in

believed, from the anxiety of the rail

many cases pending in federal courts

by all roads. "
Kailroad lawyers thought the Atchi
