AS TO IMMIGRATION.
Tho Waoo Post of this week con
tains a very effusive editorial oritioi6m
of a communication that appeared in
Tub New January lst. Tho Post is,
doubtless, awaro that tho mere pub
lioation of a communication by a
paper, (loos not onmmitt tho papor to
the inattor contained in tho communi
cation. Tho faot that The News
pubished tho artido does not show
that The News endorses anything
that is conveyed by the article. It
was written by a well-known local
humorist and published in the local
columns. The NkwS docs not objoot
to BUoh immigration as will be of ben
efit to America, but on the contrary
would oncourago it. But Tue News
is and always has been vory
dear in its position as to
unrestricted emmigration. Amorioa
does not nood and does not desiro the
pauper and criminal olasscs of Europe
as citizens. Neither should tho Post
desiro such immigration if it has tho
welfare of America at heart. But to
all thrifty, industrious and well dis
posed Germans, Swodes, Norwegians,
Danes and all othors, The News twill
extend a cheerful wolcome. Our
Gorman contemporary ratLor strotoh
ed the toxt in this oaso in order to
make a point for foreigners. If it
will examine tho filos of The News it
will find that thore is little diffcronco
of opinion on this subjoot botwoen it
and tho Post.
PclTcr has introduced a bill in the
senate to provide for tho loan of
money to the farmers of Indiana.
Are not the farmers of Indiana allow

the only state whoroin- the farmers
wero prohibited from borrowing, and
tho prohibition hero did not last longer
than a trial oaso oould be put before
tho supreme court. They must have

The counoil has again "sat" upon

As the timo for tho eleotion of
mayor of Port Worth arrives the
public is reminded of tho fact that a
gentleman named Dr. Broilos livos in

Revolutionist Garza Not Yet

San Antonio, Jan. 8. The expected
tilling of the capture of Garza did not
arrive, although anxiously expected, and
110 newH of tho wonting party sent in
pursuit of him camo to headquarters
Thursday. The fact that a failure to
capture him was not reported wan con
sidered as a favorable .sign and gave rise
to the hope that the party was on a hot
trail and did not think it best to send
back a courior until he could bring in
some definite tidings.
No doubt is expressed here that Garza
is somowhere in the neighborhood of his
father-in-law's ranch near Palito Blanco,
more tlinn seven leasruus from Rio
Grande City, and it is said that he is not '
only .suffering from his old wounds
throngh tho stomach, but that la grippe
has him in its clutches tightly and that
malady has also manifested it
self in the ranks of his followers, many
of whom are suffering from aggravated
forms of it, which their recent hard
ships incident to active service have in
tensified. The troops sent in pursuit are also suf
fering great hardships, and a consider
able immber of them linve succumbed to
lllflllenv'i nrrrrrni-nljvl In- iiriiiciii-ii l.r.4 '
the main bodies do not seem discouraged
by the attacks of their companions by
this disagreeable malady, and all efforts
aro now being directed to driving a cor
don of troops aronnd tho banditti. From
tho manner in which tho latter aro scat
tered the success of such an undertak
ing is problematical, but the military
authorities believe it jwrfectly practical.
Great discouragement is felt over the
flat refusal by the civic Federal authori
ties to givo tho military tho proper sup
port and assistance or to employ men
with the search service fund who would
point out for capturo tho followers and
supporters of Garza and the violators ot
tho neutrality laws.
A drill by the Seminole scouts and
their pack mules took place Thursday
prior to its being sent off Thursday at
8 o'clock to tho front via Laredo. The
mules aro admirably trained and Chief
Scout Bailey handles them well. Tho
infantry at the post hero aro being
drilled in the now tactics for field nnd
regular battlo movements and espe
cially to deploy forward on centre sec
tions. Tho drill Thursday attracted a
large attendance, as it is beginning to
look like the infantry may have to march
out after Garza, and it is being drilled
with that in viow.
If Garza is not corralled before the end
of this week General Stanley and part of
his staff will go iuto the field next week,
but he is expecting that tho movement
will bo suppressed before then and there
will bo no necessity for his going.
Investigating the Akunult.
Valstuo, Cal., Jan. 8, Tho investi
gation into tho assault on the Baltimore's
sailors at Valparaiso began Thursday
morning tit Mare Island in the presouct
of Judge Advocate General Remy,
United States District Attorney Gartiei
and Uuitwl States Commissioner J. S.
Hanley. Judge Reiny conducted the
John W. Tabot, an apprentice on
board the Baltimore, was tho first wit-
nebs. He was ono of tho liberty party
on sept. 1U. He stated that C. W. Ri
gen, the boatswain's mate was killed
with him during tho afternoon. About
three o'clock ho went into a saloon
called the Shakeieake. The proprietoi
ordered them out, declaring the mob dis
banded. The sailors and boldiore were
preparing for an attack on the Balti
more's men, and ho did not want anj
trouble in his place. Riggin and Tal
bot laughed at tho warning, but they
left the place and went to tho True Blue
saloon. "About 4 o'clock, while coming
out, I saw Riggiu threatened by Chilean
sailors in man-of-war uniforms. I ran
across and tried to separate them. One
of the Chileans spat in my face and 1
knocked him down. Instantly a crowd
of over 100 appeared in the street, and
we started to run and soon jumped on a
passing car. The mob followed anil
stoned tho car and we wero instantly sur
rounded by tho mob. I saw Riggin fall
and tried to reach him, but was stabbed
in tho back, nnd I turned to run. Aftei
going a few blocks I turned into a door
way and was again stabbed in tho back.
I got in nnd got into n corner and de
fended myself with a chair. Tho moll
followed, and tho Clulean sailor, man-of-
war uniform, stabbed mo again. The.
bartender finally put ino out and barri
caded tho door. The mob clamored out
side for admittance and after an hour a
policeman arrested and took me to jail.
Ho disguised mo by substituting my hat
for a sailor's cap with tho word 'Balti
more' on it so the mob would not notice
that I was an American sailor. The of
ficer turned'me over to two other police
men, who struck me soveral times, al
though I wns making no resistnnco. 1
had no arms of any kind and was xer
fectly sober. After a short titno in jail
I was sent to tho hospital with Hamil
ton, Painter and Davidson, all badlj

days and thou sent to tho ship, where )
was in tho hospital four days. Nono ex

St. PcrEKSinmo, Jan. 8. The Czai
displayed extreme anger upon learning
of the adulteration of food intended foi
tho starving peasants. It is reported
that tho principal municipal function
nries have been dismissed in consequent
of these disclosures. Three agents a)
Odessa have been arrested for having
bold adulterated grain.
KATE CLAXTON'S COOL HEAD.
Mop n I'lre Tiinle In llnrrl' Theatre at
Louisvn.i.R, Jan. 8. An ovil genius
seems to overshadow Kato Clnxton. Her
ojiening performance at Harris' theatre
was not without the attending pauiu
which follows her from city to city. It
w:ts in tho last act, just when Mis3
Claxton as Loiuse, the blind girl, was
locked in tho garret, that .somo ono in tlu?
rear of the theatre cried "Fuel " For a
moment there was an awful stillness
There wero those in the houso who had
been thinking of Miss Clnxton as a fore
runner of fire, nnd when the cry came it
seemed but a fulfilment of their expecta
tions. Tho audience arose simultaneous
ly and a stampedo for tho exit began.
Women nnd children screamed and men
tried to keep order by yelling nt tho top
of their voices, oidy to make the scene
Miss Clnxton's nerve perhaps saved the
lives of somo who might otherwise have
been crushed to death. When the panic
was nt its heiglt she rushed forward on
the stago. Her eyes for tho first time
during tho performance lost their blank
ness, and their power seemed to stop the
panic. She raised her hood and called to
the nearest to sit down. This was taken
np by others. Thot-e who were in tho
paiquet remained standing where they
were, but from the galleries and dress
circle the rush continued. It was fully
ten minutes before the players could
The panic, it is learned, wns occasioned
by some ono in tho street yelling "fight"
immediately in front of the theatre.
Some one else took this for fire and sproad
Spencer Coleman, a brother of Miss
Claxton, says that these panics which
seem to follow her nlways occur at the
same time this one occurred. When
Miss Claxton discovered the Brooklyn
theatre to be on fire sho was lying on tho
bed of straw in the last act.
PLAYING THE SUCKERS.

Memphis, Jan. 8. There is a lot of
sjwrts in this town who are hunting for
somebody to luck them around the block.
All because they picked up a wild west
erner for a sucker and he "mado mon
keys" out of them. His name is Dr.
Miller and he camo to Memphis a fow
days ago with a drove of ponies. Among
them was an ugly little beast that ox
cited the derision of all who saw him.
This morning a crowd of sporting btock
men gathered at the sale, began to guy
tho doctor about his "Tacky." "That
lony, gentlemen, can do something thnt
none of your fancy horses can do. Ho
can pull 300 pounds of sand attached to
a roiK) a mile long for a distance of ten
feet," said the doctor. "What will you
bet on it?" demanded the crowd. "Any
thing you liko," said tho doctor, calmly
pulling out a wallet full of big bills and
drafts. Tho sports called in their friends,
nnd altogether they raised ij-'i.OOO in cash.
Ono of them also put up 160 acres of land
in Iowa. Tho doctor covered nil bets.
ino mat came on in tue arternoon on a
smooth turnpike. Tho bag of sand was
weighed and tho rope was measured and
straightened. Tho doctor took his de
spised pony to tho other end and hitched
him to tho rojK), then slapped him on tho
rump nnd told him to "go." Tho little
animal moved quietly forward till tho
rojK) was taut and then gave a steady
pull. Tho bag moved twenty feet.
"It's an old trick of his, gentlemen,"
said the doctor when ho rejoined the
crowd. "Ho has done it before many a
time. It's the gentle, steady pidl that
does it. Much obliged to you all," and
ho led the pony leisurely back to the
right With aiuuiiMiiimig.
Louisville, Jan. 8. J. W. Reed, a
deputy marshal of Glasgow, Ky., who
arrived in the city, brings information
of a despernte fight between himself and
a gang of illicit distillers, who wore
making moonbhino whiskey in a secluded
portion of tho town. Mr. Eeed discovered
tho still nnd attempted to take it single
handed. The moonshiners, who num
bered half a dozen or more, mnde a des
perate fight, and tho marshal found it
necessary to use his revolvers. Chris.
Depp, one of tho illicit distillers, was
perhaps fatally wounded nnd soveral
others received injuries. George Martin
nnd sovoral othors whose names coidd
not bo learned, wero arrested and aro
now in tho Glasgow jail. Tho still, tho
tubes and a quantity of distilled spirit
were seized. United States Marshal
Burchett has been notified and his depu
ties will take charge of tho case.
