25,00-0 TO ATTACK ZACATECAS

Scene and Villa Will Follow.
TORREON, Coahuila. Juno 19 (over
military wires to El Paso June 20.)
The last of the organizations of the
division of the north to bo employed
In the attack on Zacatecas left here
early today. General Villa and his staff
will follow closely.
'In tho attack on Zacatecas will be
"employed about 25,000 men." said Gen
eral Villa today. "Of " this number
about 20.000 belong to tho division of
the north. We will be supported by
61 pieces of field artillery and 73 ma
chine guns. There is enough ammuni
tion for both, as well as for tho men.
"I would prefer that those Mexican
patriots who engage in politics take a
rifle and help nght General Huerta,"
said Villa with a broad smile. "For
myself I wish to say that I am out of
politics and that bringing this cam
paign to a successful conclusion is the
only object I pursue:"
A train with 66 severely wounded
soldiers arrived here last night from
the Zacatecas scene of operations. They
were transferred to the military hospi
tal. Heavy rains have put the rail
road traffic in a precarious condition.

Zacatecas Forces Pursuing N'atera
: Overwhelmed by Villa's Men.
TORREON, Coahuila, Mexico., June 20.
According to official advices received
today at headquarters of the division
of tho north, tho federals yesterday
sustained a crushing defeat near Calera,
a few miles north of Zacatecas. Five
thousand federals, pursuing the re
treating forces of General Natera, con
stitutionalist commander of the Zacate
cas attack, met the vanguard of General
Villa's troops, which aro advancing to
renew the attack on the state capital.
Tho ensuing engagement resulted in
a complete rout of the federals, who
were obliged to abandon all of their
equipment and provisions. The federals
were reported to have lost heavily.
It was learned from the many pris
oners taken that the federals did not
know of the presence of the Villa
troops and that it had been the plan
of General Medina Barron, command
ing tho federals at Zacatecas, to iso
late tho forces of General Natera com
pletely, and, if possible, to annihilate
tho entire command.

WalLa Borne, Aged 84.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Juno 20.
(Special.) Mrs. -Eliza Harris, aged 84,
died at tho Stubblefield Home today of
apoplexy. She was the second woman
received at the home. Born of a
wealthy Southern family, she married
a Northerner, Albert Harris, who, at
the beginning of the Civil War, moved
West rather than take sides against
his wife's family. He took up land in
San Francisco, now valuable, but
which he lost in mining deals, dying
penniless In Spokane 24 years ago. His
wife, though she had rich influential
friends, refused aid and when she be
came too old to work came to Walla
Walla in 1905.
Her friends, the Finches, Campbells
and others of prominence, always
called on her when they came to Walla
Walla. During her earlier married life
Mrs. Harris made seven tours of Eu
rope. Despite her reverses, her friends
state, she was invariably cheerful and
grateful for her home here. The funeral
will be Monday.

"I killed him so he would not marry
another woman," she told the police,

Mrs. Folsom at first pleaded guilty,
saying she had no cause and that if
her reasons for the shooting were given
they would not be understood. Later
when counsel had been appointed for
her by the court the plea was changed
to not guilty.
The Folsom home is in Somerville,
Mass. Mrs. Folsom is a graduate of
