A ISig Linn Stalk Into a Texas Frontier
Town and Gets Killed.
Kkackett, Tex., March 2. The people
of this frontiertown were st art led yesterday
morning by a lare Mexican lion entering
the business part of the place, closely pur
sued by a Mexican with nn' old army
musket. A numler of people were on the
(street and they sought refuse in buildings.
The Itrute Finally Killed.
Charles Sims was pursued into his resi
dence by the animal, who then made a
vicious attack on Roily Gentry, who
though injured matiaccd to cscaue into

Ispi.wapous. March 2. Though In
'Jiarmpolis people had all yesterday to
think about it they did not recover from
their astonishment at the remn-.-kahlo
lejial coup by which the street railroad
'tie-up" was loosened, further collisions
between the mob and police prevented,
and the company thrown into the hands of
a receiver. Probably no other man ever
acquired such intense unpopularity with
the tailoring class in so short a time as
Freiizet has. The demand for his removal
was almost universal, but the directors of
the company paid no attention to it. It
was in order to get him of the way that
United-States Commissioner in Chancery
Fishback applied for a receiver.
The Receiver Obnoxious to Frenzel.
He sued neither as stockholder norcredi
tor, but as a citizen, representing that the
company under its present management
was unable to discharge its duties to the
public, and further that a continuance of
this management with an effort to run
cars in the present state of public feeling
would lead to riot and bloodshed. On these
grounds Judne Taylor, of the supreme
court, granted the application after mid
night and appointed W. T. Steele re
ceiver. Steele was some inonl us ago dis
charged from the supeiintendency of the
road and later brought a public charge
that the directory had set aside a corrup
tion fund of ?150,00J to obtain n new fran
chise. Naturally President Frenzel was not
pleased with his appointment.
Steele Couldn't tint Possession.
Frenzel heard of the action of Judge
Taylor at 2 o'clock yesterday morning, and
at once consulted attorneys. Then he had
all the barns locked and barred, as well as
the ofliee of the company. Therefore, when
Receiver Steele appeared before daybreak
to take possession he found himself barred
out all round. liy daylight, however,
the strikers heard of the changed state of
affairs, and received the news with a
vvhoop. In force they captured the Loui
siana street barn, and got eight cars
started. They also got one started from
the Xew Jersey street barn. The first
cars on the street were given an ovation
when it was seen that the old men were
parade Ss gotten np. Over 3,000 men
iormed laid marched about the streets
with a brass band and waving flags.
Too Jubilant tn He Vigilant.
The crowd of strikers at the Louisiana
street barn, which is near the center of the
city, joined in, and here they made a mis
take. In their absence the Frenzel forces
recaptured the barn and barred the doors.
The eight cars on the street could not get
back in to change mules and soon had to
stop. The coup thus far was not a pro
nounced success. In the meantime Presi
dent Frenzel and his attorneys appeared
before Judge Taylor at 9 o'clock with a
f 100,000 bond ready and asked an appeal
from the decision appointing a receiver to
the general term of the superior court.
The effect of this action would be the tem
porary vacation of the receivership, placing
the property back in Mr. Frenzel's hands.
HEADED OFF BY FISHBACK.
Steele Cains Pnuruion ami the "Wheel
Go Wound" Again.
This was headed off, however, by Fish
back and his attorneys, who filed an accu
sation of contempt of court against Fren
rel in having Receiver Steele barred out of
the barns, and asserted that the defendant
could have no standing in court until
purged of the charge of contempt. Fren
zel wik nomilnally arrested upon this
charge and the trial of the case began in
the afternoon to a packed house. Frenzel's
defense was that no notice of the action of
the court was served upon him personally.
At 4 o'clock argument was finished and
the court promised a decision in the morn
ing. Ordered tu Turn Over the Property.
In the meantime he issued an order to
Frenzel to turn over all the property of the
company to the receiver except the office
and its contents, which are to remain
locked. Frenzel complied, and his sub
ordinates were notified by telephone to
submit to the receiver. Receiver Steele at
once went to the Louisiana street barns,
where preparations to run cars were be
gun at once. There the strike committee
of the brotherhood met him a few minutes
later and offered to return to work, leav
ing the questions in dispute to be settled
Gave Them All They Demanded.
He settled them on the spot by promis
ing to restore free riding to the men and
take back those discharged. This was at
ence communicated to the barns and the
cars began to run. Strikers who had
"grounded" the wires of the electric lines
restored the circuits, and by 8 o'clock all
lines were running as of old for the first
time in ten days. What another day may
bring forth nobody can tell, but certain it
is that the receivership will be strenuously
fought by the company and it is, of course,
only a question of time until it will regain
control of its property.

SEVEN KILLED IN A WRECK.
A Workmen's Train Collides -with an Ac
eoinmorint inn "Open Sivl tch."
Milwai kkk, March 2 Yesterday in the
Chicago, 'ilwaukee and St. Paul yards,
while the YVatertowii acrommodatiou and

side by side on parallel tracks, the accom
modation ran into au oieu switch and
Wrack the first car of the shop train,
overturning it and the two following cars,
and ditching the accommodation engine
and baggage car. The passengercars kept
the rails and their occupants only received
a severe shaking up.
Kn'ect on the Shop Train.
But on the shop train the effect was ter
rible. There were 100 workmen on board,
and of these seven were killed, one ser
iously hurt, and twelve so badly injured
that they had to be removed by ambu
lance. They will all recover, however. The
killed are: Frank Preiss, John Grund
kowski, Stanislaus Kobacinski, Paul
Wagner. Robert Weise, Joseph Dudringer,
John F. Duessing. The first four were mar
ried, the others unmarried.
The Killed Horribly Mangled.
All the killed were horribly mangled.
The accident was caused by the careless
ness of a switching crew. William liar
tels, the foreman, immediately gave him
self up to the police. lie says there is no
excuse for the accident. He simply forgot
to close the switch.

lie Declines to F.xpress Himself on that
WAsHrxiiTov, March 2. Senator Hill
was asked yesterday:
"What is to be the policy of the Demo
crats regarding a free silver bill?''
Mr. Hill smiled and replied: ''lam a
new senator and I do not know that the
Democrats have any policy about any
thing." Not Committing Himself.
"Well, governor, the burning question of
the hour is how you are going to vote on
the free silver bill."
The senator made hispuarded statement:
fcI will not cross that bridge until I come
to it." Then, as if fearing more difficult
bridges that might be. thrust before him,
he turned and walked awav.

Kerdham Knocks Out Rurke.
New Orleans, March 2. As a kind of
makeshift for Monday evening's fiasco.
Jack Burke, the light weight champion of
the southwest and Ryan's principal
trainer, was pitted last night against
Danny Xeedhani in the amphitheatre of
the Metropolitan club. The fight lasted
ten rounds, Burke being no match for
Xcedham. In the tenth round the latter
knocked him down and then hammered
him around the ring closing with a blow
under the ear which scut Burke to the
floor where he lay until time was
called. Xeedham and Ryan will probably
meet in a few weeks.

without warning, and without a word or
