Pajub, June 25. A warrant has been
Issued for the arrest of the Marquis de

Thursday, which resulted In CapU
Mayer's death. The Marquis says that
the conditions of the dncl were such
that no fatal result was te liave been'
It was agreed that the duel should be
fought with swords. The duelists were
net te ceme te the closest quarters, and
were te cease when one of the combat
ants received a wound that would place
him in a position inferior te his adver
sary. When all the preliminaries had been
arranged and the duelists had taken
their positions the usual signal was
given. The marquis made a direct
thrust with his weapon, which was par
ried by Capt Mayer.
The marquis again made a rapid
lunge, his rapier passed through Capt.
Mayer's guard and pierced his body be
llow the armpit The marquis, seeing
what had occurred, immediately disen
gaged his weapon and leaped back en
hls'ewn ground. Capt Mayer dropped
his sword, exclaiming:
"lam badly hit," and fell te the
ground. The' marquis then advanced
and asked permission te shake hands,
and Capt Mayer assented.
The surgeons who were present at
ence attended te the wounded man,
arid as seen as he was made comfort
able he wns taken te the hospital,
where he died. Capt Mayer had care
fully concealed from his relatives all
knowledge that he was te tight a duel.
The marquis said' Friday that the ac
tion of the magistrates in ordering his
arrest would net "prevent the prosecu
tion of the work we have undertaken,"
adding, "personal questions, are noth
ing; principles are all in nil. We are
but at the beginning of a civil war."

DuHANGO, Mex., June 25. The recent
reports from the City of Mexico stating
that the drought in the northern part
of the republic had been broken byj
bountiful rains is incorrect se far as
the state of Duragne and Coahulla are
concerned. With the exception of ene
light shower about two months
age there has been absolutely no
rain here for the past four and
a half years. The farmers have;
given up all hopes of raising a
crop this season, and thousands of acres
of rich land, upon which splendid crops
of corn and cotton were formerly raised,
are new barren of all vegetation, and
the whole state ofODurange and Coa
hulla, with the exception of two or
three small eases, are a veritable desert
The general government has begun te
realize the extreme gravity of the situ
ation, nnd has removed all dutiesen corn.
and beans, enabling the Reor classes
who have any money te purchase feed
supplies at comparatively low prices.
There are several thousand destitute,
farmers and laborers throughout this
state, however, who are net within the
reach of this proffered aid, and their
suffering is intense. Even the hardy
maguey plant which usually thrives in
time of drought is beginning te feel
the effect of the intense summer heat
and lack of moisture, and is being liter
ally burned up. In the remote districts
the people have for the past year lived
en the juice of this plant, it being
a cool an 1 strengthening drink. There
arc 2,000 men and several hun
dred teams employed in the construc
tion of the Mexican International read te
this city from Torrcen. Following the
construction eamps are no less than
5,000 half-starved Mexicans who make
pitiful and constant appeals te the la
borers for something te eat Every
night the horses and mules of the camp
are cerralcd, and when the animals are
taken out in the morning their places
are immediately filled by a hungry,
wild and fighting horde of half-clad
men, women and children, who grovel
in the fresh manure and greedily
eat tluj grains of corn they find in the
filthy offal. Whenever ene of the ani
mals dies or is accidentally killed, as is
often tlie case, they fall upon the body
like vultures and cat the meat raw.
These pictures of suffering are net over
drawn, but en the contrary, there are
daily sights tee distressing te be pub
lished. In the city of Lerdo, which was
a few years age the great industrial and
manufacturing center of the state
of Coahulla, being located in the
midst of what was once the most
productive cotton raising country
in the world, there is untold suffering
among the people. Tlie city govern
ment has taken the matter in hand, and
large funds have been subscribed by
the wealthiest citizens, which is te be
expended in the establishing of free
lunch rooms for the peer. There has been
about bOO.000 bushels of corn shipped
te Torreon nnd this city by the state
governments from the United States
during the past six months. This
corn is sold at cost price te
the needy, and has lessened the
suffering te n great extent It is esti
mated that 1,000,000 mere bushels will
be required te keep the people until
next season, provided a crop is then se
cured. The governor of Toluce has
contracted for the Importation of 100,
000 bushels of corn from the United
States te relieve the suffering oc
casioned by the corn failure in that
section and the consequent increase in
price. Cases of death from sfirvatien
were reported here Friday.

Nashvii.lk, Tenn., June 25. Mrs
Bate, the wife of a respectable young
farmer-living near Shelbyville, in Bed

dered Friday, and there is no elew te
the perpetrator of the horrible double
crime. The woman was seen last alive
by her husband when he went Inte
the field, at an early hour Fri
day morning. At about neon he quit
work and went te the house for
dinner. Ills two young children were
playing in theyard, but Mrs. Bate was
missing. The children said she was in
the garden, nnd Bate went te see what
delayed her. She was net in sight,
but en the ground there were many
footprints and evidences of u struggle,
while pieces of his wife's dress were
scattered around. New thoroughly
alarmed, Mr. Bate quietly followed a
track through the weeds te his clever
patch, and there found the mangled
cerpse of his wife. She had been dead
some time. The corpse was almost
nude. Her face was mutilated beyond
recognition and her skull was crushed
ie by a broken fence-rail, which lay
ni-ar. She had been outraged nnd the
brute had then murdered her. There
is great excitement in and around
Shelbyville, and there is no doubt as te
the fate of the tlend if he is discovered.
