NEWS iEXT TO GOV. SAYRES.

telegram from the commanding officer
of the Fnited States troops at San
Antonio conveying the Information
that there hail In-en a race riot at Kio
Grande City Monday night between
the federal negro troops stationed
there and the citizens of that town.
About the same time this telegram was
received another came from the county
judge at that place and they are some
w hat confusing.
The military commander at San An
tonio, General McKibbeu. telegraphs
that the report he received from the
commander at Fort Itiuggold near Kio
Graude City state that all the troops
were in the garrison Monday night at
7 o'clock when the citizens of that
town advanced on the fort and tired
upon the guard. The guard returned
the tire and the entire garrison was at
once called to arms. The citizens con
tinued their tiring upon the fort aud
the soldiers returned the fire aud final
ly had to bring their gattling guns into
play to disperse the attacks. The com
mander states that he fears further
trouble and asks for more troops.
The telegram from the county judge
states that the negro soldiers in the
fort there deployed in a ravine ou the
edge of the town and fired into and
over the town for something like an
hour and a half, shooting into a num
ber of houses, wounding one man. and
frightening the women and children so
badly that a number of them fled to
the surrounding ranches for safety,
that the attack was entirely unprovok
ed, and that the community was high
ly incensed and further trouble was
looked for at once.
I'l'Kin receipt of these telegrams Gov
ernor Sayers ordered Adjutant General
Scurry to the scene of action, and he
left last night for his destination. The
governor also wired to Washington to
have a full investigation of the matter
and to remove the negro troops at
once, the commander at San Antonio
sent a special detail of officers to the
scene nt once to investigate.

THAT HOUSE TRANSACTION.
Conditions of the Third Deed
Washington. Not. 2?. The deed
conveying the home presented by the
people to Dewey from Mrs. Mildred
McLean Dewey to George Goodwin
Dewey, the admiral's only son, was
placed on record today. A life inter
est in the property i reserved by the
admiral and his wife. The instru
ment bear9 date of Nqv. 14, the same
date borne by the deoils from the ad
miral to Lieut. Crawford and from
Crawford to Mrs. Dewfey.
In explanation of tiie transaction
practically completed j-s tenia. t a rela
tive of the Dewey fnpiily made this
statement to the Associated Press:
"Admiral aud Mrs. Dewey have trans
ferred to the former's son George
Goodwin Dewey the title to the home
presented to the admiral by the people
of this cci-.ntry. It will continue to be
the home of the admiral and Mrs.
Dewey so long as he may live.
"It may be desirable now to say
that it was the wish of both the ad
miral and Mrs. Dewey to provide for a
proper succession to the property. The
transfer of today completes the trans
action begun yesterday, and is the car
rying out only of the original intention
of both the admiral and Mrs. Dewey.
By all those interested in the matter
the method of transfer adopted was
considered the best and safest that
could have leen adopted. It was Mrs.
Dewey's desire that she should release
any claim she might have to the prop
erty through her marriage to the ad
miral, and to do this the transfer was
made through her to the admiral's son
as soon as was practicable. Through
the method adopted no dispute ever
can arise over the disposition of the

may have to call out the troops to piell
riots during his term of office. Governor
John It. Tanner wired him from ihe
Great Northern hotel yesterday mom
i:ig to proceed to Springfield and nt
once take up the duties of the chief
executive. In the memory of politicians
this will be the first time in the history
of the state that the speaker of the
house 1ms become acting governor.
Provisions of Law In the Case.
The law provides that in the absence
of the governor the lieutenant gover
nor shall In? acting governor. If both
sire away the iower falls to the presi
dent of the senate. If all three are
away the speaker of the house is de
clared to be the chief executive officer.
No provision is made as to who shall
be chief executive if the speaker of the
house is outside the state limits, too,
it being deemed improbable that all
four would ever be away at the same
Kest of the Government Going Eolith.
. Sherman will become the acting gov
ernor, as Governor Tanner. Lieutenant
Governor Northcott aud Senator Wal
ter Warder, president of the senate,
all left last evening for Chickamauua,
where the monument, which will mark
the position of the Illinois troops at
ihe memorable battle, will be dedi
cated. The party will not return until
Saturday evening. Governor Tanner
had not thought of the unusual condi
tion of tffairs until he arrived at the
Great Northern and received a tele
gram from Belleville, Ills., where there
is labor trouble. Then Governor Tan
i'er commenced to figure who would
take charge of the situation in his ab
sence, and to his surprise he found that
Sherman would be the next in rank
in the state.
