VOL. 37.—N0. 74- THE GARZA UPRISING Alarm on the Border Becom ing Intense. Numerous Startling Rumors in Circulation. Troops in the Field Greatly Ont- numbered by the Rebels. .Fears Felt for United State* Soldier*. Another Engagement Between Captain Hurdle's Foiee and the Bandit*. Associated Press Dispatches. San Antonio, Tex., Jan. 1. —Alarm on the border over the Garza uprising is becoming intense. There are many startling rumors in circulation concern ing the fate of the United Stateß troops concentrated in Starr and Duval coun ties. Garza is known to have a force ot 600 desperate men, and if the 1000 Mexi can troops who are reported to have murdered and deserted Gen. Lo renzo Garcia, commander at Mier, Mexico, have made their way to Garza's stronghold on the Texas side, their united forces would give Cap tain Bourke and his 150. United States troops a bard fight. General Stanley and other military authorities are very uneasy over not receiving any informa tion from the seat of war during the past forty-eight hours. It would not be impossible for Garza with a a force of 1200 men to capture Fort Ringgold and the whole force Of United States troops in that section of the frontier. He has threatened on several occasions to take Fort Ringgold, if it becomes necessary for him to secure food and military supplies. If the op portunity has occurred, it is not im probable he has executed his threat. General Stanley will send two more troops of cavalry to the scene of disturb ance tomorrow. GARZA KEEPS WELL POSTED. New Orleans, Jan. 1. —The Picayune's San Antonio special says: The total number of United States troops in the turbulent territory looking after Garza will be about 1000 when those to go out tomorrow reach tbe scene. Garza has spies in this city who keep him fully posted on every ma neuvre, and if the rumored revolt of the soldiers at Mier proves correct, it is believed the population of Northern Mexico will flock to his standard rapidly. The recent persecutions of Catholic clergymen has heightened the dissatis faction toward the Diaz government, and all the people are waiting to join any revolutionary movement that has pros pects of success. Farther news is awaited with much anxiety. ANOTHER ENGAGEMENT. Late this afternoon news was received of another engagement between Garza'e men and the United States troops and rangers, who have been in pursuit for several days. A telegram, which was from Captain Bourke to General Stan ley, was sent from some station on the Texas and Mexican railway, in Starr or Duval county. It was so bulled in transmission that nothing could be learned from it, except that an engage ment had occurred, and the troops were in a perilous position. A full account is expected tomorrow. HARDIE REPORTS A BATTLE. St. Lours, January I.—The Republic received the followins special from Kio Grande City: Captain flardie reports by courier: "I struck a camp of about 200 of Gar za's men ou the 20th, at sundown, in dense chapparal, near (iarcia's ranch, with no casualties on our side. Captain Brooks' company ol rangers, and troop A, third cavalry, Lieutenants Beach and Short are with me. Captains Burke and McKay are also here as vol unteers." THE BANDITS SCATTERED. Captains Bourke and McKay returned to this place last night, aud the follow ing report is made to department head quarters : "Hardie has a company of Texas rangers and a force of deputy marshals under Deputy Van Riper; a posse under Sheriff Haines, of Carrisso, and some Mexican trailers, sent by Gen eral Garcia of the Mexican army. Two companies under Beach and Short are just down from San Antonio. The ban dits scattered in the chapparal, and I don't think they will fight much unless caught in the toils. McKay and I left this morning after the fight and came across to Pinemo, twenty miles. TRAVELERS IN D.iNGER. "The great danger is that these ban dits will break into small squads and plunder travelers. They have a perfect organization, a good system of sign alb, know the country and, being without uniform, can turn themselves into inno cent ranchers in five minutes. There is a great need of wagons and trailers who know the country and people. In the opinion of the officers there should be a general round-up of the ranchers from Polis to Blanco. captain hardies march. "Hardie marched his command from 3 a. m. until sundown on the 29th, over fifty miles, but it was impossible to bring the outlaws to bay in the dark ness. Captain INeil's company of rangers arrived last nice from Alice. "Caaptain Brito of the Rangers tele graphs from Edinburg, fifty miles south : An armed party is at Argurellas, twenty miles below here. Sheriff Clousner and myself, in com bination with Colonel Mareno's cavalry, will raid them tomorrow night. Can you or a deputy United States mar shal with United States troops meet us tomorrow at Edinburg? The Blanco is very large, and a large number are needed to guard the river front." It seems that Garza is making no at tempt to cross into Mexico, but is col lecting all bis forces on this side to defy tbe Uuited States troops. Several oat laws who crossed the river and one -of Captain Drito's prisoners that escaped and swam the river, were captured by Mexican soldiers yesterday and are now in jail. A RKBEL CAPTIVB. A detachment of troops arrived this morning with Sexto Longoria, a pris oner, severely wounded in the leg, which will necessitate amputation. He was shot in the recent fight between the United States troops and bandits, and is one of the men who invaded Mexico with Garza in his first raid. Longoria lives at the Lagruella ranch. He was formerly a United States deputy marshal, and is now reported to be prominent among the insurgents. Cap tain Bourke and escort left with the prisoner this afternoon for Brownville. An attempt will be made by the United States troops, rangers and Mexicans to night to capture the Blanco, on which there is congregated quite a party of revolutionists and outlaws. A ROUSING FIGHT. Later—A squad of McNeil's rangers had a rousing fight with a small party about ten miles from here this after noon. He succeeded in capturing one of their horses. About three hundred shots were fired. No rangers were in jured. The loss on the other side is not reported. Football Postponed. San Francisco, Jan. 1. —The last ball match between the San Francisco and Loa Angeles teams which was to have occurred today, was postponed on ac count of wet grounds. The game will be played tomorrow if the weather is fav orable. CHILE IS CONCILIATORY. THE NEW ADMINISTRATION ADOPTS A PEACE POLICY. Any Settlement With the United Statos Will Be Welcome That Is Not Abso- lurely Humiliating—Matta's Insulting Note to Be Withdrawn. New York, Jan. 1. —The Herald's Santiago correspondent says: The new cabinet is generally approved by the press and the people of the country. Some reluctance was felt by some of the members of the cabinet to taking office because the exact situation of affairs between the United States and Chile was not known. There seems to be a disposition to come to terms with the United States, provided an amicable ar rangement can be made which will not humiliate Chile. I am informed there is a likelihood that the note of the late minister of, foreign affairs, Sefior Matta, which caused such an of fense to the government at Washington, may be withdrawn. It is stated that President Montt has been advised to withdraw the Matta note, and a -mem ber of the new cabinet said the cabinet would take up tbe question as soon as the report of the court on the Baltimore affair was made. No apprehension of a rupture is felt, he said, despite the state of public feeling on the subject. Acting presumably under instructions from his government, Kennedy, British minister, has been advising President Montt's government to make reasonable terms with the United States. Gutschmidt, German minister, has offered the services of his government as arbitrator between the two countries, but in view of the continued insults to our nation, both covert and openly dis played, it ia hardly thought possible that the proposition to submit the trou bles to arbitration will be entertained. Minister Egau today received a polite note from the new minißter of foreign affaire, Perior, informing him of the desire of tiie new government to main tain friendly relations with him, both personally and officially, and also to preserve and maintain the friendship existing between the two countries. A maii orderly of the United States cruiser came ashore December 29th to pay for a cablegram, and has not been heard from since. The police are search ing for him. A ROUGH KKCKI'TION. A Party of "Scab" Railroad Employees Mobbed at Little Rock. Little Rock, Ark., Jan. 1. —There was great excitement in railroad cir cles here today over the ejection of a carload of "scab" railroad employees, en route from Indianapolis and Louis ville to relieve the strike on the San An tonio and Aransas Pass road. The rail road men had learned of their coming and when the train arrived, a large crowd was. congregated at the depot. One man shouted to "cut the hose and drop the car out," and the air brake hose was severed in an instant. When tbe train started up, tbe mob having failed to disconnect the engineer's sig nal cord, the bell in tbe cab rang and the train stopped again. By this time all the engine whistles in the yard be gan to blow, and it seemed as though Bedlam had broken loose. A hundred men rushed into the sleeper, driving the occupants, some forty telegraph operators, machinists and train hands from the car and into the swamps near by. Most of th« m were driven into a pond, through whicn they floundered, followed by the in furiated men. The sleeper was re coupled to the train and it crossed the river into Little Rock, where another crowd of men boarded it, and with knives cut to shreds all the baggage of the unfortunate men. J. H. Littlefield, who was in charge of the party of new men, with several of hie companions, escaped and took a train for Texas, while the ot hers of the party are still in hiding in the swamps awaiting nn opportunity to escape. The railroad authorities are enraged at the action of their employees. The various railroad labor unions are in strong sym pathy with their striking brethren in Texas, and it is a wonder the new men escaped severe personal injuries. A Southern Cyclone. Texarkana, Ark., Jan. I.—A cyclone three miles wide, three miles west of here, at 2a. m , wrecked many farm buildings and did much other damage. The houses of 0. J. Wells and John Morris were destroyed, eight persons being buried in tbe ruins, but none were seriously hurt. Reports of pprions damage from more distant points are apprehended.' SATURDAY MORNING. JANUARY 2, 1892- GREEK MEETS GREEK. A Mighty Tug of War at Columbus, Ohio. Sherman and Foraker Are the Anchor Men. Both Pulling Like Samsons for the Senatorship. A Long and Exciting- Struggle, With Honor* About Even — Grand father* Hat and Baby McKee In the Fight. Associated Press Dispatches. Columbus, 0., Jan. 1. —Upon the wavering uncertainty of leaa than a dozen men depends the solution of the Ohio senatorial contest. The battle which began immediately after the No vember election, has been unremitting ly waged ever since by the followers of Senator Sherman and ex-Governor For aker, until the opening of the new year finds the lines so sharply drawn that nine-tenths of the Republican legislators have been compelled »openly tq de clare their preferences. There will be ninety-three Republicans in tho senatorial caucus, and Sherman and Foraker each have forty-two or forty three votes definitely pledged. Of the eight or non-committal, each side makes positive claims of the secret pledges of fully two-thirda of them, but the gentlemen themselves refuse to talk. The candidates each seem equally con fident this evening, but neither will sub mit to an interview. The Farmers' Alliance has not proven a very potent political faction in Ohio, but strenuous attempts are being ex erted to secure the influence of the or ganization against the re-election of Sherman. J. P. Mitchell, chairman of the legislative committee of the Frank lin county Alliance, stated this evening that he is here to oppose Senator Sher man. "I expect the state committee of the Alliance to be on hand on Monday to exert their influence in - tbe same di rection," said he. Senator Sherman's friends assert that the Farmers' Alliance, as an organiza tion, is taking no formal action in the contest. Representative Welsh of Knox county maintains his peculiar position in the contest, aud is hilariously endeavoring to create a McKinley boom, greatly to. the embarrassment of the governor elect. He has announced positively that he will nfver support Sherman and asserts that tbe proper solution of thequestion is the election of McKinley. The Foraker people expect to receive his support on the second ballot, should the contest be prolonged to a second ballot. The senatorial caucus will be held on Wednesday next, but there is no doubt that the contest will he practically set tled long before that, and the caucus will be but a mere formality. It is generally conceded that Hon. James F. Neal of Butler county, chair man of the state committee, will receive the Democratic caucus nomination for senator. The contest took a sensational turn laat night, when ex-Governor Foraker made a speech criticising the interfer ence of the national administration and declaring for James (j. Blame for the presidency. A delegation of several hundred admirers called upon him ask ing for a Bpeech. Foiaker gracefully responded to the invitation. After a few laughing remarks upon general topics, Foraker said: "Somebody said about three months ago that he would not scramble for re-election. It is my impression that he has changed hia mind, and at least that ia indicated by the presence in Columbus tonight, not only of all the repreeentativea by appointment, that hold office within the borders of our state, but all who enn be commanded from all the con fines of the United States. We have in in this fight to contend, upon our aide, against everything from grandfather's hat to Baby McKee. [Cheers and laughter.] But we shall win the fight." After repeated statements that he would win, Foraker spoke of Sherman, paying him many compliments, saying he had made a good senator, and add ing: "I have no ill will toward any Repub lican because he favors Sherman instead of myself. I have been favoring Sher man for the last thirty yeais. Twice with words of earnest commendation I have nominated him for the presidency. I never uttered one word I did not be lieve, and not one word would I retract now. He has been, and ie now, a great man. His record is illustrious. He is all that is implied by the word 'grand ;' but if the Republicans of Ohio should happen to think that he has been there long enough. I am not going to stand *n their way of doing so. Nor do I think the result will be accepted more graciously by any one than Senator Sherman himself. But should they decide ts send him back, I shall accommodate myself to the situation. No man ia a better Repub lican than myself, and in the next bat tle you will find me as heretofore, shoulder to shoulder with you for the standard-bearer, who ever he may be, helping all I can in the representation of our principles and doing al! in my power to win success for our great party and for the good and glory of the United States." [Tremendous ap plause.] Continuing, Foraker said: "I do not know who the next standard-bearer may be. Our preset!} president ha 9 given us a good administration, but if the people of Ohio should take a notion that James G. Blame should be nominee [great and prolonged applause] we will try and ac cept that too. If he should he named we will triumphantly elect him [applause;] and when he shall have been elected we shall have in tbe White House tbe greatest of all living Americans." [Tre mendous cheering.] There was great excitement tonight when Representative Dix of Cincinnati (Hamilton cooaty) personally called at Sherman's headquarters and pledged his support to Senatoi Sherman. Mr. Dixs action is regarded as significant, as the Hamilton county delegation has been heretofore claimed as solid for Foraker. There was great excitement in the Foraker camp at 1 o'clock this (Satur day) morning, when extended inter views were given pledging Representa tives Reeves of Ashtabula and Williams of Noble county to the support of For aker. Foraker's managers claim this insures his nomination. MYSTERY CLEARED UP. A Missing; Princeton Man Turn* Up at Hl* Home. New Yokk, Jan. I.—The mystery sur rounding the whereabouts of Ralph H. Warren, a Princeton college man, has been cleared up. The young mail walked into his parents' residence this evening. His uncle, Frederick Croßby, refused to allow reporters to see him. He said he told a somewhat incoherent story about hie doings. When he left Frazer's house he walked further than he intended, and the next thing he re membered was his intention of starting for Harper's Ferry; then he found him self in Baltimore, where he stayed to days and came home. The relatives, acting on the advice of the family phy sician, did not urge him to give any fur ther particulars until rested and recu perated. Boi«s Hag the Grip. Dcs Moines, la., Jan. I.—Governor Boies is confined to his rooms with grip. His illness is not thought to be serious. LONDON CABLE LETTER. GREAT EXCITEMENT IN THE ROS ENDALE BYE-ELECTION. The Contest for the Beat Vacated by Lord Hartington Regarded as a Test Case—The Dublin Castle Explosion and Other Matters of Publio Interest. London, Jan. I.—[Copyrighted by tbe New York Associated Press.]—No bye election during tbe existence of the present government has approached in interest and vital importance the com ing contest for the Roseendale seat, va cated by Lord Hartington. Both par ties, fully alive to the fact that the loss of this seat will be regarded throughout the country as a test of the fate of the ministry in the coming election, will strain their resources in money and local influence, and be alert in the use of every known electioneering art in order to compaes a triumph. Lord Hartington held the seat partly in fam ily interest, partly on account of per sonal popularity and partly as a Union ist. Tfce vote will decide whether the electorate, which is fairly representative of the whole of Lan cashire, is on purely political grounds, GladstOnian or Dissident.. Sir Thomas Brooke the Dissident candi date, is Lord Hartington's own choice. The Gladstonian candidate is Mr. Maden, a young and fluent speaker. In reality the Unionists dread the ißSue, a rapid canvaeß of the district already made, having disclosed a surprising Gladstonian bias. Victor Cavendish, who will succeed to the dukedom in Devonshire if Lord Hartington does not marry, and who was recently elected without opposition to the West Derby seat, vacated by the death of his father. Lord Edward Cavendish, was the first nominee for the Rosendale seat, but his youth and the danger of risking his present seat, led to the withdrawal of hia name. The report that the new duke will now marry the dowager duch ess of Manchester, ia discredited in his own circle. THE DUBLIN CASTLE EXPLOSION. The explosion at Dublin castle yester day led to a revival of the reports that Fenianiam is again in active force. An' American emissary iB said to be reorgan izing country circles and centers. The McCarthyites have attributed the re growth of secret societies to the prompt ing of the Parnellites, but no prominent Parnellite is known to be associated in the movement. Regarding the cause of the explosion, th re ia no of ficial decision. The workmen who were repairing the rooms are suspected, be cause they were refused a holiday yes terday. The balance of official opinion remains entirely against the theory of a serious plot. A COMMONER IN TROUBLE. Mr. Hastings, M. P., was again brought before the court in, Bow street today on a charge of fraud. Damaging evidence from his own diary was pro duced to contradict his defense that he never intended to evade justice. Mr. Hastings, who in appearance has aged ten years since his arrest, was remanded without bail. A COURT CIRCLE QUESTION. The death of Prince Victor of Hohen- lohe-Langenburg leaves a vacancy in the governorship of Windsor castle, which position ia deßtined for another greedy German princeling. The court circlo is interested in the position of the chil dren of the deceased. When he married Miss Seymour, the queen refused to recognize his wife as a princess, but the two were admitted to court as the Count and Countesß Gleichen. Similarly when the duke of Richmond's sister married the prince of Saxe-Weimar, they were only recognized as Count and Countess Dernburg. The marriage of Princes Be atrice to Prince Heury of Battenburg obliged the queen to concede to the wives of Prince Victor of Hohenlohe- Langenburg and Prince Edward of Saxe- Weimer, the rank of princess, with the piivilege of standing in line behind roy alties at receptions. The question now arises as to what position the children will take. The children of Prince Henry of Battenburg take his own rank, and it is contended that the children of Prince Victor succeed to the privileges of their father. THE QUEEN'S NEW YEAR GIFTS. The queen's New Year gifts to the needy tenants of Windsor castle, Os borne house and other royal domains, consisted of beef, clothing and coal. THE HAWAIIAN PRINCESS.

His Holiness Praying for Peace and Good Will Among Men. Rome, Jan. 1. —Some surprise has been occasioned here by the receipt of cable dispatchea from Montreal and other places in Canada and the United Stateß, anxiously inquiring aB to the truth of the rumor that the pope was assassinated. It is unknown here how the rumor originated, for it certainly had no basis in truth. The pope is en joying hiß usual health, and no attempt whatever has been made to assasainate him or inflict any injury upon him. The pope today took a long walk in the Vatican gardens. London, Jan. 1. —The Rome corres pondent of the Daily Telegraph says he visited the Vatican last night to obtain an interview with the pope, but was not accorded that privilege. The pope, however, sent him a message, saying he bestowed his blessing upon all mankind, and that he would pray for continued peace and good will among men. MONGOLIAN OUTLAWS. Lawless Bauds Again marauding In London, Jan. 1. —A dispatch from Shanghai received today states that not withstanding the punishment inflicted by the imperial troops upon the Mon golian outlaws, who committed so many depredations in Manchurin, lawless bands are again marauding in the northest part of China. It iB reported that these bands destroyed a number of temples in that section of China, but no religious or political importance at taches to the uprising. It ia believed it ia not a preconcerted rising against the Chinese authorities. The dispatch says the matter is partly due to agrarian troubles, the Mongols being land owners, and that the marauders include a large number of Shan Tung farmers. II i njs Humbert'! Hopes. Rome, Jan. 1. —King Humbert today gave an audieuge to Sig. Farine, presi dent of the semi c, and Sig. Bianicbero, president of the chamber of deputies, and replying to New Year's addresses, expressed confidence that parliament would pass the commercial treaties re cently negotiated. These treaties, the king declared, will prove beneficial to the country, and parliament should therefore display no hesitancy in adopt ing them. Referring to the political outlook, King Humbert said the situa tion in Europe justified the belief that Italy would accomplish the pacific la bors in which she was at present en gaged. The Messenger, a political newspaper, says Sig. Ferraris, minister of - justice, has resigned. Idle Miners in Wales. London, Jan I.—Some time ago the mine-owners in South Wales an nounced to the men that they had de cided to do away with the scale system, and after January Ist hire men individ ually. The men understood this to mean that there wonld be a material re duction of wages, and much dissatisfac tion ensued. Today 86,000 miners in South Wales are idle. After a lengthy conference, however, the matter was settled satisfactorily, and work will be resumed aoen. King- Aeurge KeooTered. Athens, Jan.

London, Jan. I.—Lord Salisbury re ceived today a special cable dispatch from her majesty's consul at Santos, confirming the recent alarming reports in regard to the te. rible state of affairs there growing out of the ravages of yel low fever and smallpox. Eighteen cap tains of merchant vessels have died either from black vomit or smallpox within two months. On some vessels the entire chip's company, officers and crew perished. It is estimated that at least two-thirds of the persons attacked died. A great majority of the victims are emigrants and sailors. The consul says much greater mortality than now exists is looked for during the hot mouths, January aud Februitrv. CHINA WAKING UP. She Propone* tr, Have a World's Fair Kxhibit After All.
