Lakhdo, Tex., Jan. 1!). Tlio Garza
rovolution is believed to bo at an ond for
tho present at least. Armed men re
ported to bo moving through tho country
nro supposed to ho Garza's forces goins
hack homo. Ono Follower, who lives
here, says tho first meeting was held in
Now Orleans and Garza, Kandoval,
Coupet and a representative of a New
Orleans firm wuro present. It was agreed
that if the revolution was inaugurated
Randoval would bo mndo leader and ho
was to receivo a hundred thousand
dollars, Garza at onco took tho field,
starting with twenty men, which grow
to 400. No prominent leader on tho
other side taking hold ho was left to
skirmish on this side, and this ended his
fiasco. Ho is thought to hp m tho
vicinity of Laredo and his friends think
ho may surrender at Corpus Christi, and
fight tho American law instead ot two
diirziL'n Trot Conilnj.
Demin'Q, N. M., Jan. 1!). Alarming
tidings from the border reached hero
Saturday night. Captain James Hyland,
United States mounted inspector of cus
toms, has just arrived. Ho says tho dis
contents nro crossing tho lino in largo
numbers, and aro congregating in tho
vicinity of Carisalillo. All aro armed
and arc evidently Hocking to join Sails
and his lieutenants, who luivo taken
refuge in the mountains thereabouts.
Tho revolutionists comprise tho worst
classes, and life and property on tho lino
is regarded as in danger. Tho troops
asked for have not yet arrived. There
is but little doubt hero that a movement
is on foot against tho Mexican govern
ment. The outbreak may not como for
Borne timo, unless those captured in tho
recent revolt in Ascension aro sum
marily punished. If tho government
takes harsh measures with tho prisoners
trouble will undoubtedly bo precipitated

Ozajik, Ark., Jan. 19. For several
days past there lias been a coming and
going of men iu rough clothes and an air
of mystery. Today, howover, it was
cleared up, and by an examination of
tho records in tho circuit clerk's ofiico
hero it was discovered that six mineral
claims had boon filed by persons living
in this state and Missouri. Theso claims
all cover what is known as tho "Old
Spanish Mine," which has been lost for
more than seventy-five yoars. Ono of
tho claimants, T. J. Parkinson, says ho
has followed up tho Mexicans who havo
been working tho mine for more than
fifteen years, and lost them eleven years
ago, smco which timo ho has been hunt
ing for it on his own account, and is
perfectly satisfied that ho has hit it.
Among other ovidenccs that ho has
struck tho right pluco is a pieco of a
broken drijl whick ho found in a cavo
where tho mino was said to bo located.
Tho mino is located about twenty-eight
miles northwest of hero.

A Conndonce Game Successfully
Played on an Aged Gentleman.
A very sharp trick was practiced
upon an old gentleman, Louis Francis,
from Shaokleford county, a few days
ago by whioh he was robbed of $25,
all the money he had. Tho victim
was SO years of age aud on Ins way to
Dongola, IHidoh, his old home.
The robbery was effected by a mid
dle aged man giving his uamu as
llays, with tho help of a confederate
whoso namo was not learned.
Tho sharper made the acquaint
ancc of the old gentleman at tho Cot
ton Belt depot, aud after claiming to
ho a friend 10 a number of persons in
Illinois named by tho old man, the
conversation gradually drifted around
to tho business of each, where t) cy
wero going, etc Tho sharper said ho
was r,n his way back to bt unaries.iHo ,
from which placo ho had brought a
car load of lino cattle, and ouo of
jacks. Ho said he had sold his cat
tie, but not being able to dispone of
his jacks at satisfactory figures he had
concluded to return them to his ex
tensive stock farm in Missouri. He
finally invited Francis to go down on
the track and look at his fine stock
to whioh coDHent was given, and (hoy
started out. When they walked down
several blooks among the cam they
woro accosted by another rascal
claiming to bo tho agent of tho rail
road who informed bis pal that the
froight train was about to stait out with
his jacks but that he wan still
due a balance of $5, on them as froight
which if no: paid at once the ear con
taining his stock wonld bo left be
hind. Ho, Hays, aekod the BuppoEcd
agent to go back with him to tho
depot and ho would pay tho amount,
be having left all his money in the
grip be placed in his charge. This
tho agent refused to do, and said ho
had left tho grip containing I is gold
behind tho door iu'tho ladies sitting
room. Hays at onco beoumo vory
much excited and upbraided the agent
tor being so careless with tho grip ho
had left in his ohargo with all the
wealth ho had obtained from tho tulo
ot his carload of cattle Tho agent
refusing to return with him to tho
depot tor the money. Hays turned
to tho old gentleman and asked him
for God's eako to loan him $25, and
return to tho depot and watch his grip
till ho settled with the agent ami
came thcro hinuolf. Tho old man
handed him over tbo money and hasti
ly returned to tho dopot but foutio no
grip, neither has ho since seen any
thing of hia $25, nor tho sharpers.
Ho told his story to number of kind
hearted gentlemen at thv VYavcrly
hotel and a subscription was started
by Mr. Win. D. Sycrs, a commercial
traveller from Stoniugton, 111. Tho
sum of $28.20 was raised with wbich
a ticket was bought and the old mau
went ou hiB way n-joioiDg. Of tho
aironnt raised Mr. Byers gavo $8 CO,
and tho Cbristain ohurch, of whioh tho
victim was a member, K. Tho church
will also piy back $5, of tho amount
advanced by Mr. S3 ere. This mat
ter haB bem kept fi'om tho press till
now for tho reason thnt the officers
thought it might givo tho thieves
notice that they were on their track
and avoid arrest. They have however
nut been arrested up to tins timo and
will not likely bu.
