Washington, May 5. The situa

today from Mexico City and the
border. . The State department has

Chihuahua City. Americans in the
state capital are reported to be en
deavoring to obtain passage to El
I'aso, as they fear the garrison may
join, the, Villistas.
Torreon is said to be Villa's next
objective. Reports from the border
say the Conchos bridge at Ortiz,
south of Chihuahua City, has been
destroyed by the rebels, thus closing
the road for reinforcements moving

It is reported that Villistas cap
tured Jimenez three weeks ago and
that later the federal troops recap
tured the city. While this is doubted
it is admitted that the situation re
garding Jimenez is confused. The
capture of Parral put the Villistas
in an excellent strategical position,
as the town is on a branch line from
the main line south from El Paso
and is within striking distance of
Villa Demands Indemnity.
Villa has demanded an indenmity
of 1,000,000 pesos from the Torreon
region industries. The superintend
ent of the Santa Eulalia mines re
ported that the bandit demanded
"taxes" for protection and had an
nounced that he return in 30 days
for the money. To avoid paying the
"taxes" the superintendent closed
the mines, taking everything that
could be moved and all the men

Advices reaching Washington late
today said that a portion of the
Villa army had taken Bustillos, a
town on the Northwestern railroad,
50 miles west of Chihuahua. These
advices, it was said, would indicate
that the forces of Villa had divided,
as recent dispatches have said that
a large Villa army still was in the
vicinity of Parral. Capture of Bus
tillos is regarded as seriously men
Juarez, Mex., May 5. Rumors of
fighting between federal troops and
Villa followers at Jiminez, were in
circulation here tonight, but' were
unconfirmed, as passengers arriving
from Chihuahua City had heard
nothing of the rumored battle at the
junction point on the line to Parral.

115 miles of paving on the big roads
running up to and into Omaha.
The main artery of traffic, the north
road coming in, officially called the
Black Hills Trail, but known to every
voter in Omaha and Douglas County
as the ECrug Park Road, 52d to the
Briggs Road, is being left out with
only three-fourths of a mile of paving
out of the 1 15 miles.
You want this road paved. You need
it paved. You use it more than any
other one highway that is being con

You have the right to demand that
this road IS included, for you are the

Defeated; Crisis On
Dvina Front Passes
Archangel, May 5. (By Asso
ciated Press.) The bolshevik flo
tilla on the Dvina again attacked the
allied positions near the junction
with the Vaga on Friday, but were
driven off by the guns of the allied
land batteries which outranged the
weapons of the enemy.
After their repulse Thursday, the
bolsheviki made two futile attempts
Friday to approach the position held
by the American, British and Rus
sian troops. A report to headquar
ters here this morning said that the
situation along the Dvina was quiet.
The feeling in Archangel is that
the crisis on the Dvina river front
has passed. The bolsheviki, it is be
lieved, delayed too long in grasping
the advantage offered when the
Dvina became open for navigation.
Additional reports on Thursday's
defeat of the bolshevik attack at
Berenznik, on the Vaga sector, show
that the allied losses were four

in the affidavits," said Dr. Callfas.
"I believe the girl is telling the
truth. I am convinced of. this from
the fact that she signed the state
ments. She told me she was 1 ot a
dope fiend and did not sell the stuff.
I believe slie is telling the truth."
''Do you know she is living with a
negro man at 216 North Thirteenth
street?" Dr. Calltas was asked.
"She told she was not and I think
she told me the truth on this point,
The negro man referred to is Cur
ley Stinson, who is under federal in
dictment for selling narcotic drugs
in violation of the Harrison act. He
is known to the police as the "King
of Omaha Dope Peddlers "
Dr. , Callfas refused to allow the
reporter to come in her house and
tell her what he knew about the
case. "I am willing to ta!;e the girl's
word," she expfained.
"If you knew this" girl was living
out of wedlock with a ncgio man,
would you take any steps to termi
nate such an unlawful arrange
ment?" Dr. Callfas was askei.
"I do not believe she was living
with him. She told W she did not,"
was the reply. "We are handling
the dope situation in Omaha the
best we can. We resent 'he publi

have set out to show that the? are
"Why don't you attempt to con
firm the. girl's statements to you?"
she was asked.
"I have gone about this in my
own way and I do not care what you
have to say about it."
- Bitter Against Bee.
Dr. Callfas declared she would
not ask the police to break up the
arrangement known to exist between
the girl and negro man.
"You simply have been trying to
break up the detention home, and
for this reason I have no use for
The Bee and refuse to believe a
word I read in it."
Dr. Callfas defended the practice
of administering dope to the in
mates at the detention home, which
has been in violation of the Nebras
ka statutes. She was asked if she
endorsed this disregard ,f the laws
of the state, she repled that it was
not her business to enforce the laws.
"Let the officers of the law do that,"
she said. "It is none of our busi
ness." Asked if she knew any physicians
who were complying with the stat
ute regulating the administration ol
morphine and cocaine to addicts, she
replied that she knew of none. Dr.
Callfas admitted that it had bren her
custom to ignore the law and re
fused to state she had any intention
of obeying the statute in the future.
"Let some one else take that up,"
she said. "I am too busy."
For the violation of the stale law
regulating the prescribing, selling
and giving narcotic drugs, the of
fense is made a felony and a heavy
fine and imprisonment in the peni
