San Fhancisco, Poll. 22 A man
liiiuictl Manuel Gomez unfolded a re
miukuhlu tulo to a member of the Mexi
can 1 evolutionary sympathizers, a party
which is dormant in this city. Gomez
hailed from New York, whoro it is al
leged he held conferences with a number
of Gaiza's adheients. and claimed to bo
en i onto to cany out a plot to assassi
nate Pie.sident Diaz, He is described as
a man with a peculiar expression in his
his eyes and a laij;e mouth.
Whatever may be the fact in Gomez's
fait', circunatantial evidence has proved
beyond doubt that theie is a revolu
tionary faction in this city. The le
poited depaiture of the man Gomez cre
ated excitement among the Mexican
population licit, who seem to believe
that plots innumerable are on foot to
Ret rid of Diaz. Among the well known
Mexicans now in this city is an ox-member
of the Mexican congress, Senor
Manuel Sanchez Facio. This gentleman,
it is said, exercises influence over a cer
tain faction in that country. He is pre
Mimably in exile for some political of
fense and a number of his countrymen
aver that ho is seriously opposed to tho
The most surprising piece of informa
tion, based upon good authority, is that
Garza was positively in this city about
three weeks ago, and, it is claimed, i
still in hiding in this state. The newn
has been kept remarkably quiet, and
would probably never have been made
public had not a reporter been ap
proached by a man giving his name as
Duranzo, who averred thai ho saw
Garza in a local restaurant. An inves
tigation disclosed the fact that the Mex
ican government had been apprised of
the minor and had enough faith in the
ttory to justify it in putting forward
every effort to obtain a clow as to hii
whereabouts while in California. Hoi'
believed by the Mexican government to
still bo in tho vicinity of San Francisco.
The man Duranzo said theie was only
one reason ho had to doubt bis eyes in
tho matter of seeing Garza; tho lattei
had a large scar on tho back of his head
which was not appaiout upon the sus
pect. Till! OlllllH-lll Tl-11-.t.

Crowell, manager of the big oatmeal
mill at this place, in an interviow said
there was no truth in the article in the
Chicago Tribune, which stated that tho
oatmeal trust was compelled to sell its
products for less than cost, and that it
was in danger of going to pieces. Ho
said that while competition was very
sharp and prices low, their products had
not been sold at a loss, and even though
tho trust should raise the price, it would
not come out of tho consumer, but out
of the retailer, who is making big profits
Mr. Crowell said that tho company
held its meeting in Akron, O., a few
days ago, and tho leports submitted at
that timo indicated that it was in a pros
perous condition, financially and other
wise, and that everybody seemed pleased
