A Station Agent Responsible for a Fatal
Railway Disaster.
Denver, Col., Dec. 31.—A disastrous
wreck occurred on the joint track of the
Denver, Texas and Fort Worth and the
Union Pacific railways a few miles north
of Graneros, a small station midway be
tween Pueblo and Trinidad, 200 miles
Bouth of Denver. The road had been
blocked by snow two days, and when
the blockade was raised today, two dou
ble-header trains were started, one from
the north and the other from the sooth.
The station agent failed to deliver the
dispatcher's orders to the northbound
train, and the two trains came together
from opposite directions with a terrible
crash. Fueman H. Grubb of
Denver was instantly killed.
Mail Clerks Wolcott, Erbeit and
Evans were badly injured. The trains
were heavily laden with passengers, but
so far as learned they escaped seri
ous injuries. Four engines were badly
wrecked. Four mail cars are a total
loss, and a baggage car is nearly demol
ished. The station agent disappeared
.after the wreck, and has not yet been

Governor Reyes has been in constant
telegraphic communication with Presi
dent Diaz all day, but the nature of the
dispatches is not known. Reyes is gov
ernor of the state of Nueva Leon. The
military authorities here are much dis
turbed over the situation on the frontier.
The movement of troops through here
from the lower part of the republic dur
ing the past five days has been very
great, and the transportation facilities
of the Mexican National railroad have
not been sufficient to accommodate the
heavy demand made upon it by the
government. The garrison here rushed
all its available troops to Nuevo Laredo
from which place they were distributed
along the right bank of the Rio
Washington, Dac. 31. —The officials
at the war department are watching the
situation on the Rio Grande with deep
concern, but, without news from General
Stanley this morning, they are appre
hensive that Captain Bourke's force
may be very much outnumbered by the
revolutionists, but they feel confident
that the officer will conduct himself
with all the necessary prudence, and
that he will soon be reinforced.
Minister Romero said this morning he
had heard nothing except from the
newspapers about the assassination of
General Garcia and the desertion of his
troops to the revolutionists. He did
not credit the story, but army officers
familiar with the character of Mexican
soldiers on the frontier, are inclined to
accept it as probable.
City of Mexico, Dec. 31. —At the war
department today it was ascertained
that the Mexican government was mov
ing troops from interior garrisons to
strengthen the army operating against
Garza. It is estimated that there are
fully 3000 soldiers guarding the frontier
from Laredo to Ma'amorm.

San Diego.
Associated Prow DlsnatohHS.
Washington, Dec. 31. —Sefior Montt,
the Chilean minister, had another inter
view with Secretary Blame today. The
minister laid before the secretary the
following translation of a telegram from
Matta,Chilean ministerof foreign affairs,
bearing on the inquiry into the trouble
in Valparaiso between Chileans and
sailors from the United States sfeamer
Santiago, Decpmber 31.
To the Minister of Chile, Washington:
From a summary of the proceedings it
appears that the struggle commenced
between two sailors in a tavern at the
ward Arrayan ; that it was continued in
the street with the accession of a num
ber of the inhabitants and transient par
ties, from the streets called Del Olave,
San Francisco and \lamos,aiid extended
to the streets Del Arsenal and San
Martin, where the police force
succeeded in restoring order.
All the North Americans, ex
cept two, state that the police did
their duty, and from the voluminous
proceedings it appears that the court
has done its duty. Whenever the pros
ecuting attorney renders an opinion,
and the time for producing evidence'
shall have expired, sentence will be
given ; and after the establishing of who
and how many are the guilty parties
(which may only be presumed at pres
ent), whoever they may be, they will
he punished. Legal proceedings are
being actively carried torward to their
proper termination.
[Signed] Matta.
When asked by an Associated Press
reporter for an opinion, Montt called
special attention to the statement that
all the North Americans, excepting two,
had said the police did their duty. He
regards this as favorable to the Chilean
side ot the controversy. It. 's noted th«
the Chilean minister • ' foreign ud
promises that when due process of law,
according to Chilean jurisprudence,
shall be observed, those found guilty
will be punished, and says these judicial
proceedings are being carried torward
actively. This in connection with the
statement that the p il ice did their duty,
is significant, as showing the Chilean
governmentdoes not wish that the action
of individuals belonging in i bile snail
be confounded with those connected v ith
the government and having official eta
tion. These lawless acts; on the part ot
individuals, as the dispatch says, are
being inquired into und r the u-*ml ju
dicial proceedings of Chile, which are
conducted secretly, and it. is said with
cumbersomenesH attaching to nearly all
the law courts deriving their authority
and precedents from Spain.
This government has never asserted
fie right to interfere with the otdinaty
judicial methods of other nal ions. It is,
however, watchful to ccc that the cus
tomary judicial methods are followed,
regarding of course, the extraordinary
character of the offense, and meantime
m iking provision for the always possi
ble occurrence of so je Untoward event,
such as undue delay or tinal response
not consistent with the dignity of the
United States.

affirmed, on what he claimed the high

humiliated in helping to the utmost of
her power to terminate peacefully and
in a manner honorable to botli herself
and the United States the conflict
which, but for the lengthy and secret
form of criminal procedure followed in
Chile-which allowed constanx false re
ports hostile to a god understanding to
be propagated abroad —could n.-ver have
attained such exaggerated proportions.
But, says the correspondent, it is evi

anxious for the inauguration ot war,
which would he disastrous to the best
interests of both countries concerned.

An Agreement Signed With Chief Ramsey
That Puts an End to the Southern
Paoifio Operators' Srike—A Signa
Victory for Organized Labor.
San Francisco, Dec. 31. — General
Manager Towne has issued an order to
all division superintendents of the Pa
cific system' of the Southern Pacific,
stating that an amicable adjustment of
the railway telegraph operators'strike
has been reached, and that the com
pany will no longer object to
its operators becoming members
of the order, if they so elect.
The affidavit in relation to the order
having been withdrawn, he requests
that the division superintendents advise
■\"' ,1 o:r operators forthwith of this ad
jttatiuent. The agreed list of strik
ers contains the names of eighty men,
and of these only about a dozen
are objectionable to the company or
brolhei hood. Ihe others will return to
work inside of twenty days. Several of
them resumed their old places today.
Cniel Ramsay will endeavor to have the
list of objectionable operators reduced
before returning east.
The agreenn-nt was signed by Acting
Grand Chief Ramsey, of the Order of
Railway Telegraphers, and A. N. I'owne,
second vice president and general man
ager of the Southern Pacific, this morn
ing, and this ends the sttike.
The student regulations in the ritual
of the order have been considerably
modified. When the railway officials
place students in offices where
members of the order are employed,
the latter may give notice
and information thereof to the officials
of the order. According to the agree
ment Ramsey will use his brst effoits to
keep in this district the officials of said
order who tnav not be obnoxious to the
railway officials, and who will use their
best efforts to work in harmony with
the railway officials.
The railroad company agrees to re
employ the striking telegraphers as
nearly as possible at their former posi
tions, some to resume work at once and
the others to resume within the next
fifteen or twenty days, except at points
where the telegraph offices may not be
In addition to recalling the ob
jectionable affidavit, the company agrees
that no objection will be raised to its
present operators becomiug members of
the order, nor will it discriminate
against any seeking employment who
may be members of the order.

Judge Shaw Sustains the Company's
Demurrer—The Main Points of His
The controversy between the city
council and the Citizens' Water com
pany, which has been going on for
months past, was practically settled
yesterday by an opinion handed down
by Judge Lucien Shaw in department
five of the superior court.
Ou the request of the council, City
Attorney McFarland brought sait to
annul the company's franchise on the
ground that illegal rates had been
charged consumers. The war which
was waged against the company by the
council and also by the residents of the
hill section of the city, was fully writ
ten up at the time.
From the opinion of the court, the
complaint appears to have been very
weak, and a demurrer by the defendant
was sustained.
The main points' of the opinion are
as follows:
The complaint does not allege that
the excessive rates were charged will
fully nor with a knowledge that they
were excessive. In that particular it
fails to state a cause of action and for
that reason the demurrer must be sus
lam of the opinion, also, that so far
as the constitution declares a forfeiture
of the waterworks of the defendant it is
inoperative and void. The condition an
nexed to the grant by implication of law
is that the franchise thereby granted
shall be forfeited, not that any other
property thereafter acquired by the
grantee or his assignees should be for
feited. (State Bank v. State, 1 Blackf,
The constitution having been adopted
after the grant cannot have the effect of
annexing an additional forfeiture or con
dition to it. It follows that in so far as
the complaint seeks a torfeiture of any
thing except the franchise granted to
Beaudry, and now held by the defend
ant, it fails to state a cause of action.
But the most serious objection to the
complaint, and one which I think is
fatal to the action, is that to
state a cause of action in favor of the
city council. I know of no law which
gives the council of the city, as such,
any right to maintain an action of any
sort. But even if there were such a
law, I think the sole right to maintain
this action is in the city. The constitu
tion declares that the franchise shall be
forfeited to the city. The complaint
shows that no cause of action exists in
favor of the city council, and for that
reason, also, the demurrer must be sus
tained. Lucien Shaw, Judge.

He Denies Ever Having Embraced
Mrs. Bedan.
Albert Turney, the defendant in the
sensational damage suit brought by
Martin Bedan, to recover $20,000 for the
alienation of his wife's affections, was
on the witness stand yesterday, and told
Judge McKinley and the jury his side of
the case.
He emphatically denied ever having
intercourse with Mrs. Bedan, as is al
leged in the complaint made by her
husband, and of course denies her
statements as to acknowledging the
parentage of her child. Turney was the
only witness for the defense, and when
his story was concluded court adjourned
to Saturday, when the case will be ar
gued and submitted to the jury.
Mrs. Bedan, who is a German woman
about 39 years of age, stated in her ex
amination that she was working at a
house on Grand avenue which is owned
by the defendant, and late in the after
noon of the 16th of December, 1890, he
seized her and outraged her person. A
child was born on September 14th of
this year, and two weeks after its birth
her husband left her and will not live
with her.
The husband alleges that he is
damaged to the tune of $20,000 by the
seduction of his wife and the alienation
of her affection.
