OzAnrc, Ma, Jan. 21. News from tho
tho Arkansas border, has reached here from
Galena. Aftor the bloody combat in Btono
county, about six weeks ago, between tho
Torrys and thoir Missouri enemies, th. for
mer retreated to Arkansas, and thore rein
forced by their clannish nlHo3, stubbornly
defied tho authorities, preventing any arrests
being made. A vigilance committee had
boon organ ized in Stono county to rid tho
county of the Terrys and their outlaw ad
herents. Tho committee has boon strength-
, oned by a similar, organization in Arkansas,
organized in the vicinity of tho Terrys' new
Some time ago this interstate vigilance
committee ordered tho Torrys and their
friends to leave tho county in so many days,
specified in tho warning. But instead of
leaving tho Terrys procured twenty-five new
Winchester rifles and fortified themselves at
Boone, near the Arkansas line, south of
Stono county. Tho Torry faction is said to
number thirty-flvo fighting men, all well
arrnod with Winchester rifles and revolvers,
while the vigilantes have a war footing
of 105, likowiso well equipped for bloody
Tho news from Galena indicates that a
bloody battle is imminent, as the vigilance
organization was preparing to attack tho
Terry party in thoir fortification, and
wearing ruthless vongeanoe against the
whole clan. Should the state authorities
not lnterfero and arrest these warlike move
ments on the Arkansas border, the late series
of homicides in Stone county may soon

THE SENATE COMMITTEE LISTEN TO
Dr. Norrln Orcen, Prosident of tho West
ern Union, Speaks in Opposition to tho
Proposed Hill and Is Replied to by Mr.
Gardlnor G. Hubbard Washington News.
Washinoton, Jan. 21. The sonnto com
mittee on poKtoflleos and post roads met this
morning and listened to Dr. Norvin Green,
presidont of the Western Union Telegraph
company, in opposition to the bills for tho
establishment of a postal telegraph system
by the government The doctor began by
questioning the constitutionality of tho pro
posed bills. No country, he said, was so
favored in its telegraph system as this. It
was assorted that tho Western Union was a
monopoly. It had no exclusive franchises;
tho field was open to everybody; it was no
more of a monopoly than any great com
He showed how the success of tho Western
Union had permitted it to reduce tho cost of
messages to the public from an averago rate
of 51.05 in 1807 to thirty and a half contain
1887. He said that tho rates would bo fur
ther reduced tho present year. Touching tho
question f war of 'rates, ho said that the
Baltimore fc Ohio bogan it. That company,
he assorted, hod boon built to bo sold to tho
Western Union; this was expected to bo ao
eomplishod on tho basis of tho damage it
Dr. Greon said that tho history of govern
ment tologrnph service showed tardy service,
bad delivery, and "bulled'1 messages. Would
the government bo responsible for orrors
and delays? he askod; no government system
ever was. The Western Union had to pay
from $100,000 to $200,000 a year for its mis
takes. He believed that tho deficit of a eov-
crnment system, as suggested in tho Cullom
bill, would be from $5,000,000 to $10,000,000
a year. If the governmont did run a tele
graph system It must toko oxisting linw. No
private enterprise could run against the Na
tional treasury, setting out to do business
He wished to say concerning the Western
Union that its value as stated by the press
would not buy the wire at the factory, and
the company's other equipment amounted to
three or four times the value of the wire.
The property of the Weatenr Union could
not possibly be duplicated to-day for ite
capitalization. There was . popular belief
that tho company was owned by ono man.
Tho company's directorate of thirty men
representing the millionaires of tho country,
held lens than three-eighths of tho stock.
Ite stock was held by 3,000 pooplo through
out the country. Over twtuty thousand
people in all were Interested in this property.
I am told, thu doctor continued, that a pe
tition bearing 500,000 signatures, Is to be sent
to this committee in favor of tho government
lystem. They will come by a command
originating from spite against one nun with
whom Mr. Powderly had a quarrel on an
other subject, and not ono out of ono hundred
of the men who will sign have over &ont a
telegraph metwuge. Dr. Green said ho had
prepared a petition wfich he hoped a mem
ber of the committee would lay before tho
eonnte, and asked to havo it printed.
Dr. Green was followed by Gardiner G.
Hubbard, who spoke over an hour in favor
of the establishment of a governmont system
of telegraph. The committeo adjourned in

"Those Fidelity cortifloatos of deposit sonfj

to bo entered to Irwin, Green & Company,

against this credit wero ordored to bo ontered
on June 10 from Juno 3, when in fact no
money had boon put in or drawn out. Ths
credits of tho Fidelity wero involvod to tha
extent of $2,012,025 whon tho bank closed.

Columdus, O., Jan. 21. Senator Stuovo,
of Hamilton county, is the first statesman in
Ohio who has had tho norvo to take the An

duced a bill which, aimed directly at armed
bands of Anarchists and Socialists, makes it

special to tho Herald says: Tho cable dis

son entrusted with the duty of oonvoying
President Clovoland's jubileo present to tho

vellum copy of tho constitution would nover
reach tho popo, is obviously a falsohood.
Tho persons referred to as being tho
boarer of tho present is John P. Morris, a
bright and highly respected membor of tho
reportorial staff of tho Baltimore Sun. It
was on account of these qualities that he was
Boloctod by Cardinal Gibbon for this duty.
Tho president's present, it seems, was deliv

from Baltimore last night were to tho effect
that Mr. Morris was already en route on his
