rangers to the scene of the trouble, and
will use every effort to arrest the inur

Dr. I'lutario Ornelas, the Mexican con
sul here, received a nuinlier of imHirtaut
communications from tlie Mexican author
ities yesterday morning. Tlie first one was
from General Iirenxo Garza, who is tlie
fomninnder of all the Mexican troops in
the tield in northern Mexico, with head
quarters at Mier, Mex..a small town aUait
Hixty miles from tlie ISio Grande border, in
tlie state of Tamaulipas.
Texan Sheltering the Itumllts.
The dispatch reads ns follows: "I am
positively informed that Santos Salinis, re

cio (ioti.ales, living at Aqua Negra el Ar

Garza and other revolutionists. I send
this communication to you in order that,
if you deem it convenient, you may bring
this information to the knowledge of the
proper authorit ies."
Meeting of Revolutionists.
The second telegram was received an
hour later, and was also from General
Garcia. It reads as follows: "I am informed
that there is a meeting of revolutionists at
Jjikores, near the ranch of Filie Gutier
rez, six miles north of K0111.1. Tex., and
'another meeting opposite the ranch of
Neuemicio Perez, on the Kio Grand e river.
At these meetings there are present Kustos
Gio liamon. (ienTal Francisco Keuavidi-s,
and Juan Manuel Falcon. I am also in
formed that Ygnacio Jinmirez is endeavor
ing to enlist revolutionists at his ranch. I
communicate t hese facts to you iu order
that if you deem it proper you may tiring
it to the knowledge of the United Stute
Was this that Long Hang Fight?
Governor Keyes last evening telegraphed
to Dr. Ornelas here as follows: '! am in
formed that on tlie night of Dec. St there
von Wiine kind of festivities at Vgua.
Texas, and that many people in a state of
drunkenness went to the bank of the Kio
Grande and insulted the Mexican troops
guarding the Mexican (side of the river.
One of those drunken people shouted
across the river praising the Mexi can
trrop" and the balance killed him instant
ly, I don't know whether this man was
Mexican or American."

A telegram wax also received from Louis
Ceron, captain of Mexican cavalry, in
command at Xeuva Iaredo, Mex., stat
ing that the revolutionists are ordered to
meet at Casa Blanca, Tex., in order to 1
tutisted. All of these telegrams were at
nee submitted to General Stanley, who
The I'hargtt Made by the Mexican oiimi!
Mexican Consul I.ameda, at I -a redo, says
tlie report that General liuiz Sandoval is
ready to join Gen. Gat za is false, lie also
makes the assertion that he is rather in
ilitu d to think that Garza's forces are, nnd
havt lieeii, intended more to light the gov
ernment of the United Stales thau that of
Mexico, and jioints to the fact that the
revolutionary recruits have lieen among
cit ii'tis of t his country, Garza himself Is
ing one of them, in spite of his Spanish
name, anil those of most of his followers,

Garza, he claims, organizes Ids forces on
Anuiicai. territory, living on it and tak
ing I'orcibij .-.orses, cattle and forage from
Amirican ranches; ubiaius ammunition
and everything eNc from this countiy. ami
final y lights American troops, killing
and -voutidiiig several of them. The con
sul f irther states that Gar.a does not in
tend to invade Mexico, and only cross-s
the l:io Grande when hard pressed, as w.
the -ase after the light with Captain

seems to indicate that the reports of ad

are not altog' thcr wimiis. These newly ar
