Washington. April 17.—Contlrma-
i tion is lacking at the state department
! of the victory claimed by Carranza j
, officials here and in Vera t'ruz to
have been won by General Obregon
1 over General Villa's forces near l'e-
laya. The Carranza claims were oftt-
] dally reported from Vera Cruz, but i
advices irom \aricus points in central .
Mexico indiiat^ that lighting is ^till |
going on. No report was received
irom Villa headquarters, where lien- j
•ral Villa is in personal command of
his troops. Of the fighting, reports
indicate the severest engagement was |
at Salamanca, near lrapuato.
j The Villa agency has issued a state
ment reaffirming the charge that 200 |
I men and eighteen women employed i
on railway repair work had been exe-
cuted by the Carranza forces after
the recent battle at Hulsachita. This
charge has been denied by the Car I
ranza leader, Gen. Herrera. The Villa I
i agency statement is based upon new
| reports from the Villa consul at La-
I redo, Tex.
The statement also denied that the
Villa forces were defeated recently |
I near Sanchez, fifteen miles from |
1 Nuevo L#aredo, saying the lighting was
between two factions of the Carran 1
i /.a troops whose leaders, Generals i
Herrera and Garza, disagreed as to |
, where the Villa fore e advancing on |
j Nuevo Laredo should be met.
| Protests against the continued pres- i
ence in the United States of General
Huerta. former provisional president |
) of .Mexico, have been received at the
White House, in large numbers with I
I in the last few days. Most of them
j came from Mexican residents in this
1 country. Some asked that (leneral
I Huerta be deported, others that he be
| arrested and still others that he he
tried for various alleged crimes.
I The protests were sent to either the
; state or labor departments us their
nature indicated, without comment or
j instructions from President ilson.
Ceiaya Laid Low.
El 1'aso, Tex., April 16.—Ceiaya,
Mexico, is a wrecked city. Its
I churches and larger buildings are in
| ruins. Shells have been bursting ill
j the town for the last forty-eight hours.
\ Gen. Francisco Villa has apparently
j cut off all possibility tor retreat by
the besieged forces. The Villista
I forces completely surround the town.
1 Street fighting has been going on at
j times throughout the day.
The Carranzista forces, composed
mostly of Yaqui Indians, are believed
j to !>e in larwe numbers, but repeated
ciiarges by the Villistas routed the In-
dians from the intrenchments and
drove them to the outer circle of
adobe houses, from which they are i
| lighting at this time. In several local- |
ities the infantry rushed in and occu-
pied the houses: street lighting fol-
lowing in each instance. Villa's sixty
cannon have been busy shelling the
isolated places of shelter.
It is believed the loss of life in the |
city is high. There is no way of esti-
mating the number of dead among the
Villistas. All day wounded have been
j I brought back to the hospital trains.
At the Hacienda Crespo two trains of
i wounded were taken to Salamanca.

In one charge General Villa's horse
was wounded, but did not fall. His es-
cort put to rout a Yaqui regiment
known as "The Messengers of Death,"
and captured two black banner*, each
bearing the sole symbol of a skull and
crossbones in silver.
Vera Cruz, April 1G.—"Five thou-
sand of the enemy dead were counted
during the movement northward from
Ceiaya. Six thousand prisoners and
forty field pieces were captured."
This is General Obregon's summary
of the fighting about Ceiaya, where he
is reported to be.
Villa is Winning.
Washington, April 13. — General
Villa appears to have gained the upper
hand in the battle with the forces of
General Obregon near Ceiaya and vi-
cinity, according to consular advices
to the state department from San I.uis
Hotosi. From other points as well it
was reported that in the struggle in
which officials estimate 45,000 men are
engaged, the fruits of victory are with
the army of General Villa.
General Obregon is declared to have
been surrounded and His retreat cut
off from all directions. As the firing
line is extensive detailed advices have
I not reached here from General Villa's
headquarters and the final outcome of
the fighting is still doubtful.
