ARMY TO MOVE. WASHINGTON, March 29. The entire mobile army will be moved to the Mexican border in April, according- to statements mndn by officers of the (Jeneral Staff in Washington. , So absorbed IsHhe administration in the. situation that a gigantic map of Mexico has been suspended from the wall of the cabinet room. Dlerent colored slips of paper Impaled on tacks represent the various armies and are moved about to correspond with the movement of troops. The positions of these slips of paper Indicated that a general attack on Mexico City -is-Jmminent. Sucii an attack is viewed by the administration with the greatest alarm, as it 'will be followed by the wildest anarchy throughout Mexico. The resignation of the- Governor of Pln-aloa and the prefect at Mazatlan in Mexico were reported to the State Department. The latest sdvlces, however, seem to indicate that Mazatlan has not, as earlier reported, yet fallen Into the hands of the rebels. A rebel attack Is hourly anticipated, however, and the Federals have no hope of holding the city. FEDERAL GENERALS SLAIN. MEXICO CITY, March 29. A code message received from Torreon by Deputy Malzo Parra says that General Tmey Au-bert of the Federal forces, who yesterday was cut off from assistance during a battle with the rebels, has been killed by a dynamite bomb. The message fJher says that General Pancho Villa has been captured and executed by General Orozco, the., .insurgent commander-in-chief. ' The body of General Jose Salas, ex-Minister of War, who is reported to have committed suicide after a Federal defeat at Jlminez several days ago, has been brought here on a special train, which also carried 110 wounded men, including fifteen officers. The station at the time of the arrival of the train was crowded, and the people cheered for the army, Salas and Madero. Three hundred rebels are reported to be operating twenty-five miles from the capital. The administration Insists that tfeey are Federal troops from Jimtnez. CREEL IN DENIAL. NEW YORK, March 29. A long statement from Enrique C. Creel, secretary of foreign affairs In the last Diaz, cabl Inet and former Mexican ambassador to the United States, was published here today denying a report that cither he or General Luis Terrazas are taking part In the new revolutionary movement or giving it- support In any way. LEAVE GUNS BEHIND. .TIMINF.Z, March 29. Two machine guns and one cannon, more than-200 horses and 15,000 rounds of ammunition were left behind when' the federals fled their position at Atotonilco last night. Saddles ijnd other equipment also were left In the ruins of the village, which was practically destroyed by tho shells and grenades. No accurate statement of the dead and wounded could be made, but it Is not improbable that the federal dead will total mora than a hundred. The hospital wards In Jlminez are crowded and many wounded were sent to Chihuahua. Aubert's force is now thought to comprise not more than 800 men. It Is believed It is making Its way to the south In an attempt to Join General Huerta's column. Cavalry is In pursuit, lluerta Is said to be only a short distance south of Escalon repairing the track of the Central Railroad. It ie possible the next big conflict may occur In the same district where Salaza's force was routed by General Campl's snen. General Salasa, who was In charje of the operations yesterday, has reported to General Orozco at Jlminez that the rout of Aubert's force was- complete. It Is reported, but not confirmed, that General Aubert was killed In the fighting yf'S-terday. A body thought to be his was picked up today.

Roosevelt Manager, a Poor Loser, Raises "Claim AH" Shout. ' SACRAMENTO. March 29. In a telegram dated Washington last night from Joseph M. Dixon, manager of the Theodore Roosevelt campaign, to Governor Hiram W. Johnson charges are made against the Taft administration in juggling the primary results in Indiana and New York in an endeavor to defeat Roosevelt's candjdaey. Dixon also makes a sensational charge that the press reports sent out regarding tho Indiana and New York primaries were deliberate falsehoods and that the truth concerning the result of these primaries has been maliciously suppressed by the administration press, TELEGRAM FROM DIXON. The telegram from Dixon is in full as follows: "Washington, D. C, March 28. Governor Hiram W". Johnson, Sacramento, Cal.: Press reports regarding Indiana and N-'w York are deliberate falsehoods. In Indiana we carried six congressional districts uncontested. Two were contested. The Taft people carried five districts .uncontested. We elected, a majority of 200 delegates to the State convention. Tire Taft people control the old committee, 6 to 7. Aff- to sealing on the temporary roll 165 contesting ' Taft delegates was shown on the roll call and they still lacked nine delegates of having a majority, "The Indianapolis delegation of 126 is contested by both sides. In order to obtain control of the convention tho Taft chairman made a ruling that the Taft delegation from Indianapolis should have the right to vote on their own contest. When this arbitrary and unheard of ruling was made by the chairman the Roosevelt delegates withdrew and elected their own delegates-at-large for Chicago headed by Senator Beveridge. This is the trtith. NEW YORK DELEGATION, "None of ihe New York delegation Is instructed except two. The balance of the delegation probably stands about one-third for Roosevelt anil one-third for Taft and' the remaining third for the band wagon. "The only place where we made contests In the primaries for delegates was In New York city -In seven Congressional dtsTrh4s their -complete check of registered Republican voters show more than two to one for Roosevelt; . "The Taft machine fearing to allow voters the opportunity . to register their votes in the primaries held up the official' ballot. The primaries ofned at 3 o'clock in the afternoon and closed at 9 at night. In many precincts no ballots whatever were delivered. In many other precincts tile ballots were not delivered until 8 o'clock, and it was impossibly for the voters to .cast their ballots. "No precincts had any ballots until fitter 6 o'clock. Many precincts where ballots were delivered had the names of the Roosevelt delegates omitted. All the anti-Roosevelt New York, papers or; their front pages told the story that the whole thing was a prtmlnal farce. ILLINOIS AND MARYLAND. "The Illinois .legislature will certainly pass a primary IbllL this fall. The Maryland legislature 'will also do the same. Roosevelt will get every delegate In both States. - "Roosevelt's meeting In Chicago last night (March 27) was the greatest political meeting In the history of Illinois; 25,000 people clamored for admission to the Auditorium beyond the seating capa-Ctt7 of-lhe plan. - - "We are going to nominate Roosevelt at Chicago. This is certain. "JOSEPH M. DIXON." Wedding Guests, They Beat Their Breasts ITHACA,' N.
