Washington, Jan. I.— Altoughh the
custom has fallen into disuse elsewhere,
here in Washington the social and offi

maintained with pertinacity. The
weather was favorable, the air being
crisp with the breath of winter and the
sun beaming kindly through the rifts in
the clouds. The feature of the forenoon
was the breakfast to the diplomatic
corps by Secretary Blame. The interior
of the White house had been elaborately
decorated for the occasion, and the
darkened rooms shone with the glare of
numerous electric lights. Palms, flow

the east room and the broad corridors
leading from it.

Danger of Being- Anni
Scene of the Battle Out of
Reach of Immediate
Garza's Gang Far Outnum
bered the Little Band of
Sax Antoxio, Tex., Jan. I.— A bat
tle has been fought between Capt.
Bourke's men and Garza's forces and the
United States troops are undoubtedly in
a very critical position at present. The
fears of Gen. Stanley for the safety of
Capt. Bourke and his men were greatly
augmented today by the receipt of a
dispatch from Capt. Francis T. llardie
of the Third cavalry.
The dispatch came from a small sta
tion on the Mexican Central railroad,
where it had been sent by courier. It
was so badly garbled in transmission
tliat the exact meaning of the dispatch
could not be made out, but enough
could be gleaned from it to learn that
an engazement had taken place be
tween Caot. Burkes men and the revo
lutionists, and that the former are in a
critical position. Gen. Stanley at once
ordered the dispatch repeated, but no
reply has yet been received.
The fight occuried in either Starr or
Duval county, and it is known that
Garza's men largely outnumber the
troops. The point is so difficult of ac
cess, owing to the dense chapporal, that
it is feared that no relief can reach
Capt. Bourke in time to save his com
mand from annihilation.
Sax Antoxio, Tex., Jan. I.— The
alarm on the border over the Garza
revolutionary uprising is becoming in
tense. There are many starling rumors
in circuiation concerning the fate of the
United States troops that are concen
trated in Starr and Duval counties, in
which section Garza has established his
piincipal recruiting stations. He is
known to have a force of 500 desperate
men and if the I.OCU Mexican troops who
are reported to have murdered and de
serted Geii. Lorenzo Garcia commander
at Mier, Mex., have made their way to
Garza's stronghold on the Texas side,
their united forces would give Capt.
John G. Bourke and his 150 United
States troops a hard light.
Gen. Stanley and the oilier military
authorities are very uneasy over not re
ceiving any information from the seat
of war during the past torty-eight hours.
The locality where the iield operations
are supposed to be carried on is fully 120
miles from a telegraph station. It

Men to Take Strikers' Places
Little Rock. Ark., Jan. I.— There is
great excitement in railroad circles here
today over the ejection of a carload of
"scab" railway employes at Argenta,
who were en route from Indianapolis
and Louisville to Arkansas Pass rail
way. A telesrram had been received
here ordering breakfast for the party,
and in this way the information was
received by the railway employes at
Argenta andJLittle Rock.
At 10:30 this morning a crowd of sev
eral hundred men, chiefly railroad em
ployes, were at the Fort Smith <fc Iron
Mountain crossing when the "Cannon
Ball" from St. Louis steamed in. No
sooner had the train arrived when a
burly man with a black slouch hat cried
out to tne crowd; "Cut the hose and
we'll drop the car out." A hundred
men rushed to do his bidding, the hose
was cut and the car, with another sleep
er in the rear, was cut out. When the
train started for Little Rock, the mob
having neglected to cut the bell cord, the
engineer's bell rang and he stopped the
By this time all the engine whistles
in the yard began to blow and it seemed
that bedlam had broken loose. A hun
dred men rushed into the fated sleeper,
driving the occupants, some forty tele
graph operators, machinists and brake
men, thoroughly alarmed, from the
car and into the swamps a hundred
feet beyond. Most of them were driven
into a pond through which they flound
ered, followed by their infuriated pur
suers. The sleepers were recoupled to
the train and it crossed the river into
Little Rock, where another crowd of
men boarded the car and with knives
cut to pieces all the baggage of the un
fortunate scabs, tossing it through the
car windows into the yards.
J. 11. Littlefield, who was in charge
of the party of scabs, and several of his
companions who escaped the mob, hav
ing taken refuge in the rear sleeper,
took a train for Texas while the other
members of the party are hidden in the
swamps awaiting an opportunity toes
cape. The railroad authorities are en
raged at this action of their employes.
ftarza Has Spies.
Garza has spies ii this city who keep
him fully posted of every maneuver of
the troops, and if the rumored revolt of
the Mexican soldiers at Mier to join his
standard proves correct, it, is believed
that the population of Northern Mexico
will flock to his standard rapidly. The
recent persecution of the Catholic
clergymen has heightened the disaffec
tion toward the Diaz government, and
all that the people are waiting for to
join any revolutionary movement is the
prospects of its success. Further news
is awaited here with much anxiety.
Last advices were rom Capt. Wheeler,
commanding at Fort Klugeold, who was
on the eve of joining the company, of
Cnpt. Hardie, First lieutenant Beach
and Second Lieutenant Langhorne, to
gether with Brooks' Texas rangers," for
an attack upon Garza with 250 ir.eirin;
Starr county. The region is sparsely
populated, and telegraph offices :. are
scarce. The scene of the expected con -■
fiict is fifty miles from any telegraph
station. In addition, it is believed the
poor telegraph service on the border lias
been paralyzed by the wires being cut.
It is not known, from this fact, whether
an engagement has occurred or '. not.
The total number of United States
troops in tho turbulent territory, with
additions sent today, will be about

with no casualties on our side.

Captains Bourke and. McKay returned
to this place last night, and the follow
ing report was made to the department

Hardie has with him Capt. Bourke's
company of Texas rangers: and a force
of deputy marshals under Deputy Mar
shal Van Riper, a posse under Sheriff
BLames, of Carrieso, and some Mexican .
trailers sent him by Gen. . Loreazo
Garcia, of the Mexican army.
There are two companies . under
Beach and Short just down. from San
Antonio. The bandits scattered in the
chaseparal at sundown, and Ido not
think they will fight much unless they
get caught in the toils. . McKay and I
left Hardie this morning after a fight
and came across country to Pinemo,
twenty miles, and back of some of the
ranches. ' v
The great danger is that those bandits
will break into small squads and plun
der travelers. They have; a perfect or
ganization, a good system ' of signals,
know the country thoroughly and being
without uniform can turn themselves
into innocent ranchmen .. and gd
to herders in five minutes. There
is great . need of pack trains
and a liberal allowance of guides and
trailers who know the conn try and.peol
pie. I give it as the opinion of Hardie,
McKay, Brooks, Van Kiperi, Hainesand
myself, that there should be a general
round-up of ranches from Polist to

FORAKER GUTS LOOSE.
He Says He Is Opposed by the
Whole Harrison Admin
From the Man in Grandfath
er's Hat to Baby
The Senatorial Contest Be
comes Tinged With Hot
Foraker's Friends Kicking: on
Columbus, 0., Jan. I.— Upon the
wavering uncertainty of less than a
dozen men depends the solution of the
Ohio senatorial contest. The battle for
senatorial honors which began imme
diately after the November election has
been unremittingly waged ever since
by the followers of Senator Sherman
and ex-Gov. Foraker, until the opening
of the new year finds the lines so sharp
ly drawn that nine-tenths of the Repub
lican legislators have been compelled to
openly declare their preferences.
This leaves but a little squad of
waverers, and so intense is the public
anxiety that they must soon yield to the
general clamor, and by their open
declarations furnish the solution to the
contest. There will be ninety-three Re
publicans in the senatorial caucus, and
of this number it is conceeded by the
opposite side that Sherman and For
aker each have about forty-two or forty
three votes definitely pledged. ' Of the
eight or nine non-committal each side
makes positive claims of having
Secret Pledges ■
from fully two-thirds of the doubtful,
but as these gentlemen themselves re
fuse to give any public declaration of
their intentions, and state they are
awaiting to hear fully from their con
stituents, no one can positively predict
how they will ultimately vote. This is
the situation concisely expressed, and
no cool-headed politician tonight as
sumes to predict the result until these
doubtful gentlemen have made an open
The opening of the day witnessed
only increased activity in the headquar
ters of the rival candidates. Senator
Sherman arose early and had several
conferences with his lieutenants before
he descended to an 8 o'clock breakfast,
and ex-Gov. Foraker was equally-dili
gent in consulting and counciliug his
followers to activity in the approaching
crisis. The two rivals have their head
quarters on the parlor floor of the same
hotel, and as there is but a few steps
distance between them, each camp has
excellent facilities for watching the
movements of the other and checkmat
ing the political surprises which quickly
succeed each other.
Kick On Officeholders.
The one important event of the
day was the general protest of Mr.
Foraker against the interference of
officeholders of the national administra
tion in the interest of Senator Sherman.
Congressman Enochs, of the Twelfth
district, and William Binkley, of Syd
ney, have both taken occasion to criti
cise and influence. Mr. Binkley, who is
one of Mr. Foraker's leading backers s
particularly severe. "It is simply cut
rageous,'' said he today, "that this
army of foderal officeholders should
invade Columbus and attempt to dic
tate the senatorship. It is a shame
npou our citizenship that the national
administration should lend its influ
ence to a state affair of this kind and
permit the appointees to come here
under pay and take a hand in the mat
ter. These men are reinforced by a
multitude of officeholders from Wash
ington until there are three or tour fed-'
eral olliceholders on the ground to every
member of the general assembly. I say
now, President Harrison cannot cany
the state of Ohio If he is renominateri
Among the offiaeholders from Wash
ington are: Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral Whitfield. sub-treasurer Bailey,
Sixth Auditor T. B. Coulter and Maj.
E. Rathbone. Besides these there are
a great many federal officers from dif
ferent parts of the state, all of
are here in the Interest of Senator
Sherman. The contest has taken
the appearance ol an adminis
tration and not a senatorial contest.
A visit to Senator Sherman's head
quarters found his followers confident
of success. In regard to Foraker's pro
test, Senator Sherman expressed him-
self thus: "I
can only say
that all the
are for him
him seems to
be laboring in
his behalf. 1
do not see that
there is any
Th c people
administration that people outside the
state are personally for me, should be an
incident rather in my favor than against
me. That people outside of Ohio and
throuehout the nation are for me is not
a subject for reproach for which any
apologies are necessary. It shows
simply that outside the state of Ohio
there is practically no difference of
opinion: that is all."
So many pieces of evidence are
coming to light indicating that Gov.-
Elect McKinley is taking a hand in the
senatorial contest in Senator Sherman's
interest, that the matter is hardly to be
doubted now. It is altogether probable
that Mr. McKinley is using his appoint
ing power in securing a vote here and
there for Senator Sherman.
The headquarters of both candidates
are crowded with people, but the Fora
ker headquarters shows more enthusi
asm. Eveiybody that calls at the gov
ernor's room has a chance to speak with
him and shake hands. At the Sherman
headquarters it is different. Senator
Sherman is in a closed room and only
those with whom he has business or
wishes to see are admitted.
The feeling today seems to be, except
auioug those who are identiiied with
the Foraker m JVc'ineir. that the Sher
man strength is developing, and that
the contest, will
result in his elee.

votes, seven more than necessary to

fifty-three on the first ballot.
The question of when the caucus

Foraker men are anxious for an early
caucus, and it was rumored last night
that an effort would ba made to have
the caucus meet tomorrow but that will
hardly be done, although all of the
members will be here then beyond a

FUNNY FOR FOKAKER.
He Thinks Least Said Will Be
Columbus, Jan. I.— "The press must
excuse me from any thins in the way of
an interview," said ex-Gov. Foraker
pleasantly, "as I have preferred all
along to say as little as possible for pub
lication. There is nothing iv the situa
tion today to alter my hopefulness as
to the outcome. My friends here can
probably give you more details as to
men and figures than I can."
The friends of the ex-governor ex
pressed the greatest confidence in his
ultimate success, and insisted that they
had assurances of support from more
than half the members elect. "We do
not give names," said George Cox, of
Cincinnati, Foraker's Hamilton county
manaser, "because it would be unjust
to gentlemen who have interests in the
coming house and senaie caucuses of
tomorrow afternoon, and whose per
sonal interests or candidates for house
offices might suffer opposition should
they now declare themselves."
The house caucus to nominate a
speaker an.l minor officers and the sen
ate to nominate a president proten.l and
subordinate officers will both be held
tomorrow afternoon and evening. After
they are over the doubtful members
will all promptly declare themselves on
the senatorial question, and the Amer
ican public will know by tomorrow
night who is to succeed John Sherman.
SOLID FOR SHERMAN.
Gov. McKinley's Influence Said
to Be at Work.
Columbus, Jan. I.— The doubt sur
rounding the position of Mr. Thomas,
of Stark county, whose nomination is
said to have been due to the Foraker
influence, leads many persons to be
lieve that the gentleman's actions are
due to the influence of Maj. McKinley,
and that the governor-elect is taking a
hand in a quiet way against Gov. For
aker. Mr. Thomas is prominent in
labor circles and it is claimed that he
owes his soat to the personal efforts of
John P. Jones, president of the state
organization of United Mine Workers, a
man whose preference for Foraker is
equally well known.
However this may be, Mr. Thomas
has just declared himself unequivocally
for Sherman, and many of the Foraker
papers of the state and not a few of the
ex-governor's supporters here declare
that Major Mchinley has influenced the
course of the representative of his
county. This growing storm was
promptly checked tonight by Mr. Cox,
Foraker's Cincinnati manager.
"The report does great injustice to
Gov. McKinley," said he, "and 1 want
to say now that Mr. Foraker and his
friends do not hold McKinley responsi
ble for Thomas' actions. We believe
the governor has maintained throughout
a position of strict neutrality, and he
should Dot be hastily accused of inter
ference. He has been fair and frank,
and has taken no part." Representa
tive Axline, of Perry, who has been
classed in the doubtful list, with a prob
able leaning toward Foraker, has
declared for Sherman. Representative
Allen, of Greene, reached the city and
confirms the report that he w : .ll vote for
Gov. Foraker. Thus the day's declara
tions show ihe relative change in the
situation, the eight or nine doubtful
men si ill holding the key.
Great excitement was created last
night by the announcement that Repre
sentative William 11. Dicks, of Ciucin
nati, Hamilton county, had openly de
clared for Sherman. " Mr. Dicks' action
was regarded as most significant from
the fact that it meant a break in the
Hamilton County delegation, which has
beretofre been claimed as solid for For
aker. To definitely settle the question of
his allegiance Mr. Dick himself called at
the Sherman headqvarters and person
ally pledged his support to the senator,
"I have decided to support you, sen
ator," said he, ' % and it is time every
body should know where 1 stand."
Several prominent citizens of Cleve
land arid Cuyahogn county, headed by
Hon. Mark ilainui. called upon Senator
Sherman this evening and assured him
that he would receive the substantial
support of the Cuyahoga county delega
tion, despite the reports to the contrary.
OPPOSED TO SHERMAN.
Farmers' Alliance Men Do Not
Want "Honest John."
Columbus, 0., Jan. I.— The Farmers'
Alliance has not proven itself a very
potent political factor in Ohio, but
various attempts are being made to se
cure the influence of the organization
against the re-election of Senator Sher
man. J. I. Mitchell, chairman of the
legislative committee of the Franklin
Alliance, states this evening that he is
here to oppose Senator Sherman.
"From this time on until the fight is
over," said he, "I shall give my atten
tion to the members whom we know
should vote against Sherman, and they
will be held to iheir pledges. The other
two members of the committee will be
here tomorrow to aid me in the work.
I expect the state committee of the Al
liance to be on hand next Monday to
exert their influence in the sanu direc
Senator Sherman's friends treat Mr.
Mitchell's statements with unfeigned
levity and insist that he represents uo
bedy but himself in his declarations
and that the Farmers' Alliance, as an
organization, is taking no formal action
in the contest.
Representative Welsh, of Knox coun
ty, still maintains his peculiar position
iv the contest, and is hilariously en
deavoring to create a McKinley boom,
greatly to the embarrassment of the
governor-elect. He has announced pos
itively that he will never support Sher
man, and asserts that the proper solu
tion of the question is the election of
Maj. McKinley, who, he says, is a na
tional character, is clean, honest and
able, and has not had any part in the
animosities of the present campaign.
He will unquestionably vote for McKin
ley, but the friends of Mr. Foraker
claim they will receive his support on
the second ballot, should the contest be
prolonged to a second ballot. They

CoLtTMBUS,O.,Jan. I.— The Cuyahoga,

man will unquestionably get a majority
of the eleven votes. His friends have
been claiming all of them, but this
claim is an exaggerated one, Gov. For

will get as many as four votes from the
Cuyahoga delegation. However this
may be, no effort is being lost to win
some of the Cleveland votes for the ex
A second delegation of Cleveland citi

attached the signatures of 1,000 repre

who make a very strong appeal to the
i Cuyahoga delegation to support For-
I aker. This afternoon the delegation of

Gov. Foraker responded in a brief
speech, during which he said: "I am
simple-minded enough to believe that

There is much consolation in this fact.

courtesy." "We are not giving figures
or names," says Chairman llahh. of the
state central committee, who is Senator
Sherman's chief lieutenant, "but we
claim the nomination ot John Sherman.
We already have pledges enough to

ing doubtful members."
The Speakership Looked Upon as
a Deciding Point.
Columbus, Jan. I.— The legislative
caucus for the nomination of officers of
the house wili be held at 2 o'clock to
morrow afternoon. The fight on the
speakership is very close, the candi
dates being Lewis C. Laylin, ot Huron,
and John A. McGrew, of Clark county.
The probabilities are in favor of Mr.
Laylin, but this, it is now conceded,
will not be a sure index on the sena

but there is no doubt tnat the contest

It is generally conceded that Hon.
James E. Neal, of Butler county, chair
man of the Democratic state executive
committee, will receive the Democratic
caucus nomination for the United States
senate. The honor is merely a compli
mentary form, of course, ana is a rec
ognition of the gentleman's services to
the party in the last campaign.
The latest developments indicate that
there will be a contest for the speaker
ship nomination. Representative Price,
of Hocking county, has heretofore been
regarded as the only aspirant for the
empty honor, but it seems that Repre
sentative Reiter, of Montgomery, is
also a candidate.
Senators Nicolls, of Belmont; Lamp
son, of Ashtabula, and Carpenter, of
Fayette, are the Republican candidates
for president pro tempove of the senate.
The caucus nomination is. of course,
equivalent to an election, and each can
didate appears to have equal chances.

Ohio's Hoot Owl Jumping on
Columbus, 0., Jan. I.— The contest
unexpectedly took a sensational turn
late tonight when ex-Gox. Foraker
made a speech criticising the interfer

declaring for James G. Blame for the
presidency. A delegation of several
hundred admirers of the ex-governor
marched lo the Neil house and after
cheering their candidate vociferously,
proceeded in a body through the cor
ridors and up the stairs to the Foraker
headquarters. There were loud cries of
"speech, speech," and the governor
gracefully responded to the invitation.
"My fellow Republicans," said he,
"somebody said about three months
ago that he would not 'scramble' for a
re-election. [Laughter]. It is my im

Executive of the Empire
Topeka, Kan., Jan. I.— The new year
was ushered in most auspiciously for
Ex-Congressman Perkins, He has been
appointed to the senatorial chair made
vacant by the death of Senator Plumb.
Ail day long the governor discussed the
senatorial situation with himself. Early
this morning his private secretary an
nounced that Gov. Humphrey would
receive no callers, whether on a private,
public or political errand.
At 10 o'clock the governor entered
the executive office, where the lieuten
ants of the various candidates were on
hand. They were informed the gov
ernor would not receive them. His
wishes served to count for little. The
numerous callers proceeded to camp in
the executive reception room, declaring
they would wait for a favorable oppor
tunity, and it took considerable argu
ment on the part of the private secre
tary to dislodge them from their vant
ITlusins All Alone.
This, however, was evidently accom
plished and the governor, for the first
time in a week, was left to consider the
situation alone. The lieutenants mi
grated to headquarters. All day long
• the feeling was strong that ex-Congress
man Perkins would receive the appoint
ment, and when it became known that
the governor had signed his commission
as senator from the state of Kansas, no
one, either a citizeu or politician,
evinced any considerable surprise. -
The appointment gives general satis
faction, and will, it is thought, have the
effect of solidifying the opposing fac
tions in the Republican party in a pha
lanx that will present a solid front to
the enemy at the next election. The ,
contest for the appointment was an
unique one even in Kansas politics. The
death of Senator Plumb had scarcely
been announced before the various as
pirants began laying wires for the suc
cession to. his seat. Before his body
reached Kansas the contest had fairly
commenced, and during the . funeral
journey from Kansas City to the grave
