A Faithful Dog Avenges the Murder of
His Master, His Wife
And Dies at Last in a Mistaken Defense
of the Only Survivor of
Laredo, Ttxas, March 25. Evidences
of oue of the most horrible and brutal
crimes, coupled with an awful fate for the
criminal, have just been discovered In a
lonely spot near this place. A party of men
stopped at a hut, which they had passed a
few days before and found occupied by
a strange squatter and his family, consist
ing of a wife and two children, and see
ing it apparently deserted broke open the
door. A sickening spectacle gre dthem.
The single room was literally flooded with
Hood. The head of the man had been
severed from his body, and, In
wanton flendishness, hud been stuck
on a sharp bedpost, while tho
body was sitting in a chair in the act of
mending a broken bridle. On the bed was
the woman with an infant on her breast,
both dead, with a long, sharp butcher
knife driven through their bodies, pinning
them together and to the mattress. The
only live objects in the room were a fero
cious bloodhound, and a boy about four
. years of age.
The dog sprang savagely at the intrud
ers and had to be shot before an entrance
could be effected. Ho had numerous
deep gashes in him and was covered with
blood, as was the child. In one corner
of the room was a skeleton stripped clean
of flesh supposed to be that of the mur
derer, whom after a desperate struggle
the dog had killed and eaten.
The murderer is believed to be from St
Louis, as in the dog's stomach, which
was cut open, were found some undigest
ed clothing and a piece of card-board
which turned out to be a ticket to.George
McMiuius' benefit at the Grand. Opera-
house March 31.

Pittsburgh, Pa., March 2G. A Port
Kichmond, Pa., special says: "The coal
troubles in the Schuylkill, Lehigh, Wy
oming and Lackawana regions are be
coming even worse than has been pre
viously reported. The continued suspen
sion of operations and the half-pay plan
that has been exacted by the dealers of
the combination is creating intense
dissatisfaction and murmuring among
ail classes of mine operators.
In ' the Schuylkill district, the
malcontent colliers have met lu secret
convention and formed a protective union
similar to the old Miners' and Laborers'
Benevolent Association, which disrupted
during tho labor troubles of 1874-5.
Emissaries have been sent to the other
great mining centers and a strong move
ment will be made to Bccure the co
operation and assistance of all work
ingmen employed In mines throughout
the Anthracite fields. The operatives

working time and wages.

As yet only two of Cairo's seven rail

Bill Scott has found it advisable to
bolster himself up, politically, with a claim
to the friendship ot John A. Logan. For a
feason that wo shall Etate, the Gazjtto has
been as silent as the tomb with regard to
Republican Presidential candidates, which
fact, taken in connection with some others
much more important, forced the conclusion
that Scott and his hangers-on wero anti
Logan, as well as anti-Thomas. Scott's
communication in tho Argus last evening,
in which he announces himself to be
Logan's friend and favorite, is virtually an
acknowledgement of his own great need of
somo strong arm to lean upon, a proof of
his own weakness with the better class of
his tiwn race who are ardent admirers of
Logan. But, what is more important by
far, it is a very thin daub intended to oblit
erate the effect of some very thoughtless
babbling of which that dude, Ilouser, has
been repeatedly guilty. Ilouser is Scott's
right-hand man. While Scott furnishes
the thoughts, Ilouser bouses them in lan
guage that never fails to bring forth a
thundering chorus of groans from all the
long list of lexicographers of all tho ages
and of every clime. Houser's pratt ing re
cently brought him face to face with a
dilemma which had more than two horns
and into which he bag also drawn Scott
who is seeking now, in vain, to extricate
himself. Besides being an unskilled jug
gler of words Ilouser is also a dude; and a
dude a real dude, you know is always
effeminate, hair-brained, egotistical and
talkative. Houser's egotism frequently "got
the bulge on" what little senso he had,
since he .has been here, and then his lose
tongue always told of whit a great politi
cal "I am" ho was; that he was the
emissary of Chailcs V. Farwell, of Chicago,
Logan's bitterest foe; how ho had been
sent here by Farwell, for the express pur
pose of antagonizing Logan among the
negroes here; how faithful he was to his
important trust and how well he was suc
ceeding in his great mission, partially
hrough the mediumship of the Gazette. In
this strain the dude has "shot off his
mouth" with a reckless disregard of time,
place, occasion and "present company," so
that tho causo and purpose of his presence
here have long since ceased to be even an
open secret. Only a short time ago he in
nocently told tho whole "secret" to a mem
ber of the Congressional Central Committee,
who is known to be more than a friend of
Logan. But that this prattler is not merely
seeking to satisfy his egotism in telling this
story is provrn by a conversation another
member of the Central Committee, also a
friend of Logan, had several days ago with
AbnerB. Taylor, FarwtU's partner in Chi
cgo,iu which the latier, thinking that his
listener was agiinst Logan, told him that
Farewell had scut Ilouser down hero for
the purpose mentioned above. Now, this
Ilouser, this self-proclaimed enemy of
Logan; the self-confessed chattel
of Logan's most dangerous poli
tical enemy, paid a stipulated
pittance, no doubt, to do Farewell's dirty
work among the negroes here, is the busi
ness associate of Bill Scott; has almost ex
clusive charge of Scott's paper and is sup
ported by Scott while engaged in the work
of secretly uudermining Logan. And yet
Scott claims to be a friend of Logan and
claims Logan's friendship in return 1
Such hvnocracv. practiced wiiu any de
gree of tact, would aiousothe contempt of
com st men; nut w nen pracuceu us ouug
lingly as Scott and his babbling dude aro
rioinir. it anneals only to ono's sense of the
extremely ridiculous and exciter pity for
the poor fools who are guuij oi it.
