BRIDGES BEHIND VILLA OUT
Rains Interfere With Plans for
Supplies During Siege.
EL PASO, Tex., June 23. General
Villa has not burned his bridges behind
him in the Zacatecas campaign, but the
rains have washed them away. It was
announced by railroad officials today
that it would take a fortnight to re
pair the damage done between Chihua
hua City and Torreon. In the meantime
Villa's forces were reported preparing
to attack at once the central Mexican
city. This also may interfere with
Villa's plans for securing supplies for
his army during the siege.
Local Villa agents today said they
even did not know Villa's whereabouts,
but supposed that he already had
reached Fresnillo, 35 miles north of
Zacatecas, where General Natera had
maintained headquarters during his
unsuccessful investment of the city.
From the federal side came a report
of constitutionalist reverses above
Zacatecas. Arturo Eliafl, the Huerta
Consul here, gave out a telegram dated
at Zacatecas June 22 from General
Barron, the garrison commander, which
said: "News published by the press in
regard to the defeat of our forces 1b
unfounded. On the contrary, we have
dealt the bandits a heavy blow. On
this date they retreated north with
great losses of men and munitions."
William A. Staats. of New York, an
arms-purchaeing agent for Carranza,
arrived here today to secure the release
of two aeroplane propellers which have
been prevented from crossing the
border by the United States Army of
ficials at Fort Bliss. He will reship
them to Tampico by way of Galveston,
having received assurances, he said,
that this method of entering munition!
into constitutionalist territory would
not be prevented by American authori

Nearly, if not quite, 60 per cent of

filing the claims of their clients. Their
contracts called for a large percentage
of the collected claims, and in some
instances they received also liberal
allowances for expenses. In those

of reparation at 65 per cent of the

Pleas of Guilty Forced Through
Fear, Says ReportChampion De

WASHINGTON, June 33. That Judge
Emory Speer, of the Southern District
of Georgia, was tyrannical in the con
duct of his court, but that evidence
sufficient to support a conviction on im
peachment could not be obtained, was
the finding today of a House sub-committee.
The question will go now to
the full judiciary committee, to which
the Houbo has referred the question
of impeaching Judge Speer.
Representative Volstead, of Minne
sota. Republican, submitted a minority
report defending -Judge Speer and ar
raigning his colleagues for criticising
a judge whom they were virtually find
ing not guilty.
The majority of the sub-committee
"The record shows Instances where
the judge slttlng.in the trial of crim
inal cased apparently forced pleas of
guilty from defendants or convictions,
and thero is strong evidence that in
one case, at least, he forced innocent
parties to enter such pleas through a
fear of the consequence in the event
of an unfavorable verdict by a Jury.
Warning GIvea mm te Future.
"If Judge Speer's Judicial acts in the
future are marked by the rigorous and
Inflexible harshness shown by this
record, these charges hang as a por
tentous cloud oVer his court, impairing
his usefulness, impeding the admin
istration of justice and endangering
the integrity of American institutions."
Complete exoneration of Judge Speer
was recommended by Mr. Volstead, who

of the majority.
