Bunkhcnil of Aliibauiti, who intrixluouil
a resolution in coiinross containing
charges ngaiiiHt Judge McCormick, is in
receipt of letters from Texas containing
further charges against this ollicial.
The latest charge'against him is that
he appointed Eugene Marshall, United
States district attorney f tho master in
chancery of the Missouri, Kansas and
Texas railway, and that young McCor
mick, Judge McCorinick's son, at once
became the attorney before the master
in chancery. Further than this tho
charge is that at the present term of
Judge McCoiiuick'tj court the court
fees allowed tho" muster in chancery is
something over $9000.
Congressman Bankhead said that ho
would present any further charge, ns
hereinbeforo set out to the judiciary
committee, and that he had already filed
with it tho letters he had received in re
gard to it. He further wiid that he in
tended to follow the matter up to the
end, and that he intended to file charges
in the department of justice against Mr.
The fight against tho confirmation of
Judge McCormick brought from hiin
and his friends explanations and denials
of tho charges against him,' which are on
file with the judiciary committee- of the
senate. These defenses will be asked
for by the house judiciary committee.
In the opinion of tlne who are light-ir-g
Judge McCormick, this last charge
against him is very welcome; they say it
gives them a good chance to prevent con
firmation. Some of tho letters received
declaro that if the indorsement which
Judge McCormick got from the
lawyers of Dallas was through the anx
ioty of the lawyers to get rid of him and
ask the committee to examine thote who

of state received the following telegram
from Mexico in regard to the condition
of affairs in that country: "The minister
of foreign affairs of Mexico makes the
following statement: According to iid
vices by this (the Mexican) government
the bands of Catirino Garza, organized
solely in tho state of Texas, have been
completely dispersed, thanks to tho effi
cient puisuit of the same recently set on
foot in said state by tho United States
forces. The Mexican railroad system,
including lines crossing the northern
frontier, have enjoyed complete secu
rity, although upon two distinct occa'
eions the bands referred to crossed over
to the Mexican bide. On tho first occa-
uion they remained two days in constant
movement and on the second occasion
only a few hours, due tho pursuit kept

cautionary measures were then insti
tuted to prevent a fresh incursion into
Mexico, which resulted in strengthening
tho sense of absolute safety and im
munity from harm always enjoyed by
Mexican railroads. Such security con
