QAI.VESTON, Tex., April 24. Some
what of a sensational elopement took
place lu this city to-day. Benjamin
Barnes, a prosperous bricklayer re
siding In the East End, has a buxom
daughter with whom Henry Opper-
maun, a young man, became deeply
enamored. The young lady evidently
reciprocated, but her parents sternly
opposed the alliance. It is the old
story. To-day the young couple out
witted the old folks, hastily proceed
ed 10 the county clerk's office, at once
procured a license, departed Imme
diately thereafter to Inquire for James
J. Bpann's office and were at onoe
spliced. From thenee they weutto
the depot to take, an outward train,
when the lrrate father accompanied
my an officer arrested the happy bride
groom on a warrant onarging mm
with perjury. He was taken to the
police station where a bond offGOO
was required for his appearance to
answer the charge orgoto.Jall. In
the meantime the weeping bride ,was
taken to tue home of her Indignant
parents, where she is kept under close
surveillance. -Oppermann after some
difficulty secured an acceptable bonds
man and Is at liberty. The bride's
father hearing of r the movements of
the young couple Instantly swore out
a warrant against his objeetlonal son-in-law,
ohargtng ulra with falsely
swearing his daughter was of legal
age, when he knew to the contrary.
Oppermann will have a preliminary
hearing to-morrow, and the outcome
will be watched with Interest.

II. McDaniel was toJiave been exam
ined at Warren to day, as suspicions
pointed to his having murdered his
wifo, who he says committed suicide
last Thursday, but a special to-night
says McDaniel waived an examination
and Was committed to jail to await the
action of the grand jury. He says his
wife, a beautiful joung woman, blew
her own brains out. He had been
jealous of her for some time and ac
cused her of inconstancy, and that
bitter feeling existing between the two
was well known. The day Mrs. Mc
Daniel was killed they had a quarrel
and his wife started to go to her
father's. Her husband persuaded her
to return to her home, when he again
uttered the bitter accusations. As he
states, driven to frenzy by his harsh
and cruel language, the poor girl seized
a loaded pistol from the shelf and
Minted at her unfeeling husband, as
about to avenge herself on him,
then turned the muzzle to her own
head, pulled the trigger, and she fell
to the floor a corpe. This is thsjtory
as related by the nusband.

zens oa the plea that he was is distaess
and wanted to get to his home in Ar
kansas. Te others he represented him
self as Ben Sanger, ef the firm ef

San Antonio, April 26. General
Manager B. F. Yoakum, of the Ban
Antoale and Aransas Pass rail road,
loan Interview to-day, said that they
were poshing the extension of that
road to north Texas from Waco with
all possible haste. The continual
rainy weather of the spring session
has considerably delayed construct
ion, but now as the ground is beoom
dry again, grading and- track laying
will begin with renewed energy,
From West Point the road will run
north and Intersect the Houston and
Texas Central at Glddlngs; thence on
it orossee the International and
Great Northern at Rockdale, and taps
the Gulf, Colorado and Banta Fe at
Cameron. From the latter point the
road will go ou to Fort Worth, via
Waoo, or may snoot direct to Paris,
via Marlin' to farm a connection with
the Frisco at Paris. From the tenor
of Mr. Yoakum's remarks it is to be
Judged that the road, In all probab
lllty, will not go to Waco at all.
