Following the reported clash at Mag
dalena today between a Villa detach
ment sent from Naco by General Hill
and the Maytorena-Carranza advance
guard, both sides openly prepared for
attacks on Agua Prieta and Naco.
Several bodies of Maytorena's troops
were reported late today to have ad

a part of his forces, announced that he
would leave for Naco tomorrow to re

Carranza officials There announced that
Hill had completed three series Of
barbed wire entanglements about Naco
which are charged with 3400-volt cur
rent from the Naco power plant The
ground before the town also has been
mined, they said.
At Agua Prieta, the Carranza garri

CARRANZA CLAIMS 20 STATES
Villa, However, Dominates Solid
i Block In Northwest.
EL PASO, Tex., Nov. 5. Carranza of
ficials claim 20 states out of the 31
states and territories in Mexico in the
present conflict with the Villa factions
which today resulted In actual conflict
below Aguas Callentes. The result of
the battle was not learned, but it Is
4cnown strong forces have met almost
at the city where a week ago an at
tempt was made peacefully to' adjust
the factional disagreement.
The states dominated by Villa form a
solid block in the Northwest, thus giv
ing the northern chieftain a more ad
vantageous position, especially in view
of the border territory he controls and
the ease with which war munitions can
be shipped from the United States. The
only exception to this Is the State of
Morelos, controlled largely by Zapata,
whom the Villa faction claims, but
whose troops the Carranza element as
serts are controlled by neither side.
Rafael Muzqulz, the Carranza Consul
General to the United States, received
today an explanation of the "first
chief's" action rejecting the nomina
tion by the Aguas Callentes conference"
of Eulallo Gutierrez to serve as a Pro
