San Antonio, Tex., April 17.— Lucking official advices of Francisco ViHa's death, Major Genera! Funston today wrdered General Pershing to rush a detachment into the mountains west of Parral, where Villa was reported to have taken refuge. Other forces, totalling 200 men, were hastily finishing defensive works at Santa Cm/, to meet any move on the part of the Carranzistas in Parral. Major R L. Howze reported he had definitely located Villa in the mountains, following a clash in which one American trooper named Kirby was killed and two severely wounded. Sharp Clash Met. Howze and his force were making a detour in the region of La Rorja, northwest of Parrel, when they encountered a Villista band. A sharp clash followed, he reported. The Villista casualties were not stated. Shortly afterward Howze and his detachment of the Tenth cavalry leaped into the fight at Santa Cruz., where the American forces had retreated after being trapped at Parral. and •aided- them in turning back the Mexicans. No Relax an Yet. Despite the official Mexican advices of Villas death, there was a disposition at headquarters to await [word from Washington or General i Pershing to that effect before relax- jing the pursuit. Though War Minister Obregon was reported to have received official advices that Villa had been slain, officials here did not give the report full credence and expected the chase to continue. Air of Expectancy. There was an air of expectancy about headquarters today. Over Sunday, since the first detailed report of the Parral clash came from Genera! Pershing, the tension increased perceptibly. Developments 1 of an important nature were expected in today's reports and interest centered in the region of Santa Cruz and Parral. Reports from various Texas points told of preparations by the militia to relieve the border guard in case of necessity to permit th<' sending of additional reinforce- 1 ments into Mexico.
