BAND ITS TRAIL
(Continued from Page One)
orders -not to permit any military rep-
resentative of our government to ac-
company his troops in the search for
the lost aviators.
"I agreed with the consul that this
would be wise that our troops had
taken up the trail of the bandits as
son as it was light enough to see the
trail and were then in pursuit; that
it was impossible to get Mexican offi-
cers to accompany our troops and as-
sured him that efforts would be made
by airplane to keep liaison between
our troops and the Mexican troops, to
which the consul agreed.
"The aviators have made two liai-
son flights, keeping in contact with
and observing our troops. Shall keep
you informed."
Raker Refuses to Withdraw
Secretary Baker, when this dispatch
was made public, had heard nothing
from the Mexican ambassador on the
subject, but said that there was no
present intention of withdrawing the.
American expedition.,
How far Colonel Langhorne's troops
would be permitted to penetrate into
Mexico, the secretary would not say.
"Has any limit been fixed as to how
far they shall go?" he was asked.
"I have nothing to say about that,"
Mr. Baker replied.
A message also was received by the
war department confirming press dis-
patches regarding the firing by Mex-
icans on an American airplane west of
Candelaria and return of the fire by
American aviators who believed they
killed one bandit.
Marfa, Texas, Aug. 20.-Somewhere
in Mexico, opposite Candelaria, Tex.,
American soldiers early today were
preparing to continue the pursuit
begun yesterday of bandits who kid-
napped and held for ransom Lieuten-
ants Peterson and Davis, American
aviators, rescued yesterday after pay-
ment of ransom to the bandit leader.
Military headquarters here was
without late information from the
punitive expedition except for an air-
plane arriving at 1:15 o'clock this aft-
ernoon, which brought this message:'
"Still following trail."
Heavy storms in the mountains of
Chihuahua are interrupting-communi-
cation via the field telephones of the1
army.
Four airplanes which arrived last
night from Fort Bliss, near El Paso,
to augment the air protection of the
eighth cavalry in Mexico today, set
up a liaison with the troopers and
aided in scouring the hills, arroyos,
and canyons.]
Rain to Make New Trails

have wiped out the trails of the ban-
dits, but it was not without its advan-
tages, however, for the softened con-
ditions of the north would make fresh
trails, more easily discernible than the
trails previous to the rains.
Early reports from the field in Mex-
ico today told how the Americans
spent the -night in the mountains.
The troopers slept under a starless
sky, in canyons, on trails, wherever
they happened to be when it grew
too dark to continue their pursuit.
Sentries were stationed at entranc-
es to canyons, and at high points on
trails to prevent an ambush or sur-
prise attacks if the bandits reassem-
bled in force during the nght.
No fires' were permitted. Horses-
were picketed in hollow squares and
the men, rolled in blankets, slept be-
side their mounts with rifles and pis-
tols at their sides. Pickets patrolled
the temporary camps.
Pack mules were unburdened for
the night and the field wireless set
was rigged for making reports to
headquarters. Before dark airplanes
swooped low over the camps, dropping
orders.
The troopers, tired out from their
long, hard ride, slept as soon as they
finished a cold supper of field rations.
Hipolito Villa, brother of Francisco
Villa, is believed to be hiding in the
mountains near where the American
columns are working. Hipolito is said
to have a small bodyguard and to be
seriously ill.
Reports from Presidio, delayed be-
cause of storms, told of a meeting in
the field yesterday between General
Pruneda, his officers, and American
commanders of the punitive expedi-
tion. Following the conference Amer-
ican trops continued in pursuit of the
bandits. A meeting is scheduled again
for today.
