REVOLT IN MEXICO.
Matters Are Assuming a Very
THE PRESIDENT FORCED TO ACT.
A Report That Garcia Has Been Hangeg
Arouses the Malcontents in the North
ern Part of the Country end They Are
Joining the Forces of the Revolution
IsU President Dlas Orders the Massing
of Troops to Meet the Rebels Uncle
Sam Has Something- to Say.
San Antonio, Tex., Sept. 21. The news
received here yesterday from northern
Mexico indicates that the revolution in
that country ia still in progress. The en
gagement near Mier between the invaders
and government troops was not as serious,
as reported. There was a pitched battle
and a large number of shots were ex
changed, but the number killed outright
is not thought to be large. Catriuo Gar
la's reported fate has aroused the malcon
tents in the northern part ot the republic,
and they are joining the revolutionists in
large numbers. The Mexican govern
ment is becoming uneasy at the aspect of
affairs, and there is no batter evidence of
this than the fact that President Diaz has,
through his secretary of war, ordered a
massing of troops in the northern part of
Marching- Upon Monterey.
Hundreds of thoroughly equipped sol
diers are now pouring into the states of
Kuevo Leon and Taumilipas. A large
force hss been stationed at the towns of
Carniago and Requero by the Mexican
government to protect the citizens of those
places. Tlge invaders are about fifty miles
south of Carniago. It is believed that
they are marching npon Monterey, where
the revolutionists have many sympa
thizers who will Join them when tbey
reach that section. General Stanley, com
mander ot the United States troops for
the department of Texas, stated yester
day that if the revolutionists were not
successful in Mexico, they could not again
take refuge in the United States, as Gen
eral Ruiz Sandoval and the 100 who were
the originators of the movement arranged
their plans and started on their mission
from this country.
Cannot Be-Enter the United States.
Detachments from all the posts on this
side of the Rio Graude border are patrol
lng the frontier to intercept the revolu
tionists, should they return to this sii'j.
If captured iu the United States they w'll
be tried upon the charge 01 violating tie
neutrality laws. The report reached here
late last night that the Mexican revolu
tionists bad a battle yesterday with troops
near Monterey, but no confirmation of the
rumor has yet been received. The priva.e
dispatch giving this inforinaliou states
that many men were killed aud wouuded
in the engagement.
To Reinforce Sandoval.
Little credence is placed in this, as iC is
known that the main body of the revolu
tionists was in the vicinity of Camargo
Saturday morning. The Mexican refu
gees and malcontents on 1 his side of tbe
Kio Grande are going to the assistance of
General Sandoval. An armed party of
400 of them crossed the Rio Grande into
Mexico, a short distance alwve Browns
ville, Tex., Saturday. The United States
troops patrolling attempted to intercept
the progress of the re -enforcements, but

THREE TIMES A WIFE."
Gertrude Potter Joined for the Seconal
Time to Julius Clarke Daniels.
Chicago, Sept. 21. Miss Gertrude
Whiting Potter was married Saturday
afternoon at the Virginia to Julius Clarke
Daniels. The ceremony was one of form
merely, the parties having been previously
legally united in marriage Jan. 1, 1890, in
Chicago' by the Rev. R. A. John, pastor of
St. Paul's church. Saturday's ceremony,
however, was thought best by all con
cerned as a final adjustment of the matri
monial entanglements in which the young
woman was involved. The first Daniels
Potter marriage was a secret evea more
closely guarded than the Rust-Po:er mar
riage, assumed names being given to the li
cense department and officiating minister.
Furthermore it appears that the annul
ment of the invalid Rust-Potter marrirg
and Saturday's ceremony were tbe result
ot consultation and agreement between
the Potter, Rust and Daniels families.
Daniels Still Loved Ber.
It is understood that the first hint of
the Daniels-Potter marriage reached the
ears of J. C. Hutchins, Miss Potter's
brother-in law. This was after the Rust
Potter marriage and after Miss Potter
and young Mr. Rust had sailed for
Europe. Mr. Hutchins went to New
York, obtained the young man's corrobo
ration ot the marriage, and returning to
Chicago substantiated the facts. Young
Daniels took the position that her loved
his wife and wished to claim he before
tho world. Subsequently the Rust-Potter
marriage became known through tbe
medium of the press. Though it was in
valid it was thought necessary to have it
declared null aud void by a court of
record in justice to young Mr. Rust as
well as to clear away any possible ob
stacle to a re-enact ment of the marriage
between Mr. Daniels and Miss Potter.
RUIN IN THE DAKOTAS.
Thousands of Dollars' Worth of Property
Destroyed Threslting by Moonlight.
Bismaeck, X., D., Sept. 21. Dispatches
from points in both Dakotas show no
amelioration of the situation. The heat
is intolerable everywhere, and at night
the spectacle is presented iu nearly fifty
counties of farmers threshing by the light
of the full moon, accentuated in spots by
the blaze of prairie fires. In sections where
the crops have been harvested there is a
fervent prayer for raiu, without which
there is the greatest danger of the most
disastrous series of fires ever known.
Fire in All Directions.
Tbe western counties in this state are
also suffering, and tires are reported from
Clay, Xoruian, and Traversa counties,
where fire lines are being burned in all di
rections by auxious farmers. The streets
of this city are dark as midnight with im
mense volumes of smoke in the air. Not
withstanding the warnings incessantly
uttered by those who have suffered by
this terrible scourge in the past, the ordi
nary precautions are not taken by the
farmers and ranchmen of westeru Xorth
Dakota, and the result is that many thi 1
sands of dollars' worth of property is now
in ashes, and ruin faces niauy a man.
Father and Sou Iturned to Death.
EkMARCK. S. D., Sept. Cl. Word b.is
just reached here that George W. John
son and son, living sixty miles south of
here in Emmons county, were burned to
death while fighting one of tbe worst
prairie fires ever witnessed in that coun'y.
Owing to the unusually long grass t.iis
year the fire was uncontrollable, and
swept over the country from Winches' r,
on the Missouri river, for fifty miles sout n
east, destroying a large amount of gra' 1,
hay, buildings, etc Aa estimate of tbe
damage canuot yet be made.
