VOL. N< >• ™- FORAKER DEFEATED. Sherman's Election to the Senate Assured. Young Republicans of Ohio Feel Very Bitter. Sores Left by the Contest That Will Be Hard to Heal. The New York Senate Organized Under the Cloture Bale -Messrs. Quay and Dudley Feel Very Glum. A«ociated Press Dispatches. Columbus, Ohio, Jan. s.—The night before the great senatorial battle finds the inevitable still staring the Foraker forces ominously in the face. To them all indications of the political situation point to defeat, but they have made a gallant battle, and the struggle estab lished beyond contradiction one signifi cant fact —that Foraker is the unshaken idol of the young Republicans of Ohio. The declaration today of Dunn and Daugherty for Sherman add two more to the senator's majority, and his friends now claim he will have 58 votes, while they give Foraker but 31, the remaining two being doubtful, Of course the Foraker people do not concede these lajms. It is generally, believed this evening that the Foraker managers are basing their hopes upon a secret ballot. They think should this ballot be secret many of those members who are confessedly for Foraker, but have gone to Sherman in obedience to the will of their consti tuents, might break away. The Sher man people are loud in their demands for an open ballot by roll call, and main tain that everything should be fair and public. It looks tonight as though the open ballot idea will prevail. The state trade and labor assembly met today and, as was anticipated, attempted to solve the senatorial ques tion. The president, in his opening ad dress, recommended the assembly not to interfere in the matter, but despite this, a resolution was this afternoon in troduced denouncing Sherman's sena torial record. It was defeated after considerable wrangling, but it is under stood the Foraker men will revive the controversy tomorrow. The bitterness of the Foraker people towards the national administration is intense, and W. S. Cappellarof Mans field, one of Foraker's leading managers today, said: "Whether Sherman be nominated or not, beyond this time he is a political blank in Ohio politics, for the reason that he will have no future upon the political carpet, state or na tional, and while the outrageous inter ference of the federal administration, so conspicuous to all, is admitted, it must be admitted that if the Harrison ad ministration hopes to succeed itself and carry Ohio it will climb a barbed-wire fence, if necessary, to be friendly with Foraker and his following in this state. The senatorial contest will leave sore places in every county, township and school district, and if McKinley, the in coming governor, can comprehend and realize the situation and be able to heal the wound, he will perform an incredi ble feat. But there are those who be lieve if Sherman is nominated for the senate it necessitates the nomination of Blame as president to swing Ohio into the Republican column." This statement of Cappellar is being received as an admission that the For aker people purpose to array themselves against President Harrison and carry the state delegation to the national con vention for Blame, or in the absence of his candidacy, for Senator Culloin of Illinois or some other declared candidate for tho presidency. For first time in the contest the Sherman people today gave names and figures. Chairman Halm of the state central committee Bays: ".Sherman will have 56 votes. Fifteen of these will be senators and 41 representatives. If a VOte were taken now, that would be my estimate of the result. However, it may be increased." Representatives Dunn and Daugherty, who were counted for Foraker, have since pronounced for Sherman, and this insures him 58 votes. Washington, Jan. s.—General Boyn ton being asked if he sent any reply to the telegram which the Columbus labor committee furnished the Asso ciated Press, said: "No such dispatch reached me yesterday from which I conclude that no reply was wanted be fore their convention to-day. As to the Chinese question, into which the com mittee is represented as inquiring, this ia true: That Senator Sherman's record from first to last on that subject, as well aa all other questions concerned with labor, ia one of wise, continuing and earnest efforts to advance every interest of the American workman. As to his attitude toward pensions which ia chal lenged by the questions asked, his posi tion, which this committee represents hostile to the soldiers, was distinctly Btated by Senator Sherman to be based upon his convictions, that proposed measures did not go far enough to do the veterans full justice." THE CLOTURE RULE. Democrats Make Good Use of a Favorite Republican Weapon. Albany, N. V,, Jan. s.—The Demo crats have nailed down the Republican side iv tbe legislature, and in doing it used the iron hammer of the closure, which was never before lifted in the senate of the atate of New York. As soon as the senators were sworn in thia morning, they got to work. Senator Edwards up to thia point was an im portant element in the situation, but the Democrats did not propoae to rely long on an Independent Republican. They had rather have one of their own. Walker was to be seated in the twenty seventh district, in which Sherwood the Republican candidate, was proved in •eligib* after getting a majority, and the seating was to be done without an opportunity on the part of Sherwood, or any Republican senator, to enter a pro test. Senator Cantor, the Democratic leader, offered a resolution declaring Charles Walker elected, and moved the previous question. Senator Erwin protested that there was no previous question in this body, and asked leave to present Sher wood's petition. After a brief but acri monious discussion, Cantor explained, after the question was put, that tbe Senate, not having yet adopted any rules of order, was under general par liamentary practice, which always pro vides for tbe previous question. After further vain protests on the part of the Republicans, Walker was voted In, 16 to 14, and immediately took the oath. The committee on privileges and elec tions will at once inquire into the con tests against four Republicans—Richard son, Derby, Donnellson and Vangorder. The Democrats must have twenty votes to insure the appropriation bills, and the probability is that all except Van gorder will have to give way to the Dem ocrats. The majority means to lose no time in reapportioning the state. Both branches of the legislature as sembled atll o'clock. The senate elected the officers chosen by the Democratic caucus. Edwards (Independent) voted with the Democrats. No efforts at ob struction were made by the Republi cans. Walker (Democrat), for the Twen ty-seventh senatorial district, was then seated as related above. The assembly was quietly organized, and the officers nominated by the Demo cratic caucus were elected. A commit tee was then appointed by both branches and notified the governor that tbe legis lature was organized. He at once Bent his message and it was read. In it he congratulates the people of the state upon the fact that for the first time in eighty years the governor was able to addreas his suggestions to a legislature in political accord with the executive. He stated that the paramount duty be fore the legislature was to provide for the enumeration of the inhabitants of the state, preparatory to the apportion ment of senate and assembly districts. He also pointed out the necessity for the immediate reapportionment of the congressional districts. The remainder of the message relates to state affairs of minor importance. The governor advises the legislature to repeal that portion of the electrical execution law which prohibits news paper publication of tbe details of the execution. He favors a liberal, but not an extravagant, appropriation for the world's fair exhibition. The governor recommends the exten sion of the system of registration of electors to all paita of the state, and says any measure properly drawn and not in conflict with the constitution, which will so bulwark the present bal lot law as to make intimidation and bribery an impossibility, will receive his hearty approval. The governor ad vises the passage of a constitutional amendment, transferring to the courts jurisdiction in all contested election cases. QGAY AND DUDLEY. Worried Because the Democrats Might Mlchig-anlze New York. Pittsburg, Jan. 5. —A local paper this afternoon prints what purports to be the inside history of a conference held Sun day between Senator Quay, W. VV. Dud ley and other leading Republicans. The paper asserts that these gentlemen have discovered that the Democrats intend to "Michiganize" the state of New York by providing that presidential electors shall be chosen by the legislature, aud not by popular vote of the people. An other* feature of the alleged scheme is, that by this plan the enormous sums of money usually spent in the state campaign for the election of elect ors by popular vote, can be reserved for distribution during the canvass in other doubtful states. The paper asserts that Quay and Dudley consider tho situation serious and are worried. COlLEOroli BGBltV'rt TROUBLES. Bo Minis It Impossible to Discharge the Duties of li in Office. San Francisco, Jan. 5. —The Chron icle will say tomorrow: Some facts were learned yesterday concerning the result of the investigation into the official conduct of Collector of Custons Berry of San Diego, and the system of smuggling across the southern border. It appears from a report prepared by Special Agent Evanß, that anything but harmony prevails among the leading federal officers at San Diego. The collector complains that the United States marshal's office at San Diego has assumed a hostile atti tude toward him. It is also stated that the district attorney, who recently re signed, did not push government cases, ai d the report says that federal litigation in the San Diego district is at a stand still on this account. Meanwhile the smuggling of horses over the line con tinues. It is estimated that in the past nine months 3000 horses have been smuggled nto California, and that tho government revenue has sustained a loss of $90,000. "There seems to be no way at pres ent," said Colonel Evans yeßterday, "by which this lawlessness can be stopped. The fact that the smugglers are well to do and influential people, and that lots of cases are tied up, accounts in part for this condition of things. Then again the line of demarcation is purely imaginary, and there are several in stances when customs officers have pounced down on some rancher, only to find that the horses they expected to seize are quietly grazing twenty feet off on Mexican territory. Of course the officers cannot legally cross the line to effect a capture. A Mexican herder observes the officers and quietly leads his animals away. Next night the horses are taken over the line, aud by morning the vaqueros have driven them out of the jurisdiction of the collector or else have so mixed them up with hundreds of other horses that identification is out of the ques tion." A Terrible I'luugu. Ashkvillb, N. C, Jan. s.—On the Western iNorth Carolina road, today, a freight train became uncontrollable on a heavy grade and dashed down the track at fearful speed. At Dykeridge trestle it left the rails and plunged into Scott's creek, more than 100 feet below. . En gineer S*m Francis, Fireman Sam Ar thur, Ruf us Hemphill and a colored man were killed. WEDNESDAY MORNING. JANUARY 6, 1892. BORDER SKIRMISHES. Troops Chasine; Bandits on the Rio Grande. Now and Then a Trooper or a Rebel Shot. Garza's Re volution Said to Be Backed by Mexican Clericals. Another Bloody Chapter Added to tho Criminal History of Kansas. A County-Seat War Renewed. Associated Press Dispatches. St. Louis, Jan. 6.—A special to the Republican from Rio Grande City says: Corporal Rute, Troop A, Third cavalry, was shot by a picket of his own company at Salieno, a few days ago. He waß brought to Ringgold, died yeaterday and waa buried today. Several revolutionary prisoners, guarded by a detachment of soldiers and three deputy marshals, left here for Brownsville yesterday for trial by the federal court, now in session there. A few hours after their departure a dispatch was received from Sheriff Closner, of Edinburg, to the post commander, say ing it waa reported that a band of mounted Mexicans were en route to rescue the prisoners. Troop C, Third cavalry, and Captain McNiel's company of rangers were in the saddle in a few minutes, with an understanding with Sheriff Closner that they were to attack Havana at daylight. The sheriff left Edinburg with a posse of fifteen. This morning news was received from Hav ana as follows: "A little after daybreak this morning Capt. McKay, with C troop, went in to Jay a Sasture, at the lower end. Captain [cNeil, with hie company,went through the middle. Three revolutionists were chased up by the Bangers, but escaped. I ran into a small camp and got six saddles and bridles, but the owners had just left. Captain McKay and Captain McNeil have 'already caught over seven horses, including a government horse, lost at the Retinal fight, and two saddles, Several of the revolutionists crossed the river during the night, in such haste that they lett a horse stuck in the mud and a saddle on the farther side. (Signed) Lanohorne." .1 Lieut. Thomas Garza, arrested byi Deputy Martitial Beuada before th\ Retinal fight, and who escaped during the skirmish, came in and surrendered this morning. Tbe revolutionists are badly scattered, and everything is com paratively quiet. Laredo, Tex., Jan. 5. —Startling de velopments regarding the Garza revolu tion are coming in. Papers found in the saddlebags of Pablo Munoee, one of the captured revolutionists, show that Monteß de Ooa, bishop of Monterey, is financial agent of the Clerical party in supplying Garza with funds. Ttie state in which the bishop was first located passed a law that all parties marrying must first secure license from the civil authorities. This was followed by a law prohibiting church professions, except by permission of the government. These laws were disputed oy the bishop and he was fined by General Reyes, governor of the province, who told him if the bishops did not obey the laws he would destroy the church. This created a bitter feeling, and Oca was transferred to Monterey. In February Garza published an article in which he charged that the murder of Oreneral Martinez was committed at the in stance of President Diaz, through Gen eral Reyes, who employed the aesassins. For this statement a warrant for Garza's arrest was issued, and this was the starting point of the revolution. Later disclosures show that the clerical party and the Iturbides, or the follow ers of Prince Iturbide, who is Diaz's op ponent for the presidency, are one and the same, and that Garza is supported by them. Chicago, Jan. s.—An El Paso, Texas, special dispatch reads: Just learned that the leaders in the present revolu tion on the lower frontier have been working in this neighborhood for re cruits since last June. It is also learned tbat the headquarters of the revolution ists are situated at New Orleans, but their removal to El Paso is contem plated, as this place will afford a better place of operations. The Mexican revolution is backed by a large amount, of money, aud as soou as a foothold is obtained in Mexico, the revolution will begin in earnest. The idea of those backing the movement is to cut off that portion of Mexico north of a line ex tending from Tuxpan, on tho gulf of Mexico, to Mazatlan, on the Pacific ocean, and declare a republic nnder the constitution as promulgated in 1857. COUNT If-B BAT WAR. Another Bloody Chapter In the History of Kansas. Arkalon, Kan., Jan. 6. —Another bloody chapter haa been added to the criminal history of Southwestern Kan sas. The county aeat war between Woodsdale and Hugoton haa again re sulted in bloodshed. A plot to kill Judge Botkin, theopponentof one of the murdered leaders of the feud was put into executiou today. It failed, and the bullets intended tor Judge Bot kin ended the life of a sheriff Dunn. Three weeks ago Judge Botkin received information that a mob composed of members of the Citizens' Alliance of Woodsdale and Springfield would en deavor to assassinate bim on the way to court at Springtield this morning. The information was furnished by a member of the conspiracy, who gave the names of all implicated in the plot. It also stated that the judge would be tired upon at the head of a valley near Cullert's place, one mile southeast of Springfield. Last night Judge Botkin, Sheriff Dunn and six deputy sheriffs held a meeting at the house of the judge, which is two miles south of the head of the canon. They decided to scout the country between the judge's house and the court house, and started from the house to do so. At 3:30 this morning they came upon a mob composed of about forty men with Winchester rifles, and a right ensued. It lasted until daylight. The sheriff was literally riddled with bullets. All the other officers escaped and went to Springfield, where they barricaded themselves in a private house. The mob puraued them to town. Shortly after daybreak Joe Laribee, court stenographer, was seen by mem bers of the judge's family, who all this time had been at' home, approaching the house on a horse. The mob could also be seen in the distance. Laribee flanked tbe mob and reached the house,' when be told the judge of the result of the battle and urged him to flee with his family to Arkalon. Not longafterwards Mrs. H.P.Laribee, wife of an under sheriff, also arrived at tbe house, with a similar message from Deputy Sheriff Stein. The cashier of tbe Arkalon state bank and County Attorney Branchomp secured the body of Sheriff Dunn and brought it here. It will be sent to his family. In addition to the members of the Citizen's Alliance who composed the mob were also half a dozen desperate characters from Grant county. All were under the leadership of John Stuffle, recently convicted in Judge Bot kin's court of horse-stealing. The in stigators and principal movers of the conspiracy are: Mrs. M. Wood, wife of the murdered Sam Wood; John R. Gar rison of Garden City, A. R. Kilgore, C. S. Kilgore, O. S. Aubrey of Woodsdale; B. J. Valhores, C. L. Culver and W. B. Orner of Springfield. Judge Botkin has had detectives in the camp of the Citizens' Alliance of Woodsdale and Springfield tbe past three weeks, and has in his possession conclusive evidence. Topeka, Kan., Jan. s.—This afternoon Governor Humphrey received a tele gram from Judge Botkin, dated at Arka lon, urging the governor to send the adjutant-general with troops to Arkalon on a special train as quickly as possible. Necessary orders were given at once, and Company A of the First infantry started for tbe scene. Adjutant-General Roberts left tonight, and will direct the troops in person. It is not likely that the trouble is ended. The facte in regard to the conspiracy discovered by, the judge, go to show that if tbe attack on him from ambush waa unsuccessful, the mob would go to hia house or wherever be was and murder him. It is thought an attempt of this kind will be made tonight. THE BALTIMORE. She Arrives at San Franclseo—Captain Schley's Statement. Ban Fkancisco, Jan. 5. —The United States cruiser Baltimore arrived here at 9:30 thia morning from Valparaiso, via Callao. Captain Schley was immedi ately interviewed by an Associated Press i reporter. He Htated that his report had. been forwarded to Washington, and he was not at liberty to make any state ments concerning the contents. He stated, however, that he had seen no reason to modify his former telegraphic report based on the investigation of the Valparaiso mob by the officers of the Baltimore. "My men," said he, "thirty four in number, entirely unarmed, were attacked at almost the same moment in half a dozen different parts of a dis trict of the city a mile and a half wide, by mobs varying from 300 to 2000 men. Two were killed, five were seriously stabbed and eighteen more bruised and hurt. Every one of them was stabbed from behind—not one from in front. If my sailors had been armed they could have defended themselves, for when two of them turned at bay the Chileans fled. If they had had knives I believe each one could have chased a dozen Chileans. The wounded are all well now, but I cannot permit them to be interviewed at present. The riot lasted about an hour and a half." Captain Schley's attention was called to the report of the procurator fiscal of Valparaiso, which stated that all but two of the witnesses declared that the police had done their full duty. "I do not know what my men testified," said the captain, "but I am sure it, was noth ing like that. After much trouble the Chilean authorities allowed Lieutenant Henry McCrea to be present at the ex amination of the uen, but they swore him to secrecy, and he cannot make public what was said. They also made the sailors sign two papers written in Spanish, of the contents of one of which lam ignorant. Maybe the procurator makes his statement on the strength of something contained in these. "The Baltimore left Valparaiso De cember 10th, rather suddenly. Our cruise has not been a very pleasant one. We were in Chilean waters eight months, and it was like living out at sea without a chance or invitation to go ashore. The feeling toward us in Chile is not cordial, to say tbe least. I think the statement in this morning's papers that Chile intends to offer a full apology is very doubtful." Following is the list of the men badly hurt in the riot: George Banter, J. An derson, J. Hamilton, J. W. Talbot. All these are now fully recovered, though at one time their lives were iv danger. Chas. W. Riggin was killed on shore, and William Turnbull died of his wounds shortly afterwards. The Baltimore went to Mare island tonight. The Baltimore brought up from Val paraiso Captain Dickenson of the Bhip Rappahannock, and the latter's wife and two daughters. The Rappahan nock was bound from Cardiff to San Francisco with a cargo of coal, but the cargo took fire off Juan Fernandez island, and the vessel was totally de stroyed. The captain and crew re mained on the island three weeks, and were then taking off by a passing vessel aud conveyed to Valparaiso. A Seallug- Cruise Vancouver, B. C, Jan. s.—The seal ing schooner Beatrice, 49 tons, owned in this port, sailed this afternoon on a sealing cruise. She will sail south to about San Diego, where seals appear, and work up north. She is the first of the British Columbia fleet out. Refuses to Talk. San Francisco, Jan. 5. —Florence A.

San Francisco, Jan. 5. —An enthusi astic meeting of over 3000 people waa held tonight to take action on the mat ters connected with the late grand jury. Many of the moat prominent and best known men in the city were present. Ex-Harbor Commissioner A. C. Paul- Bell called the meeting to order, and James D. Phelan waa elected chairman. Speeches were made by Rev. Horatio Stebbina, Barclay Henley, Rev. T. 0. Easton, A. C. Paulsell and George Lez ynsky. Resolutions were adopted unani mously stating that whereas, the late grand jury had shown that official ven ality of the most depraved type existed in the city and state government, that all positions from United States senator down were sold, and that legislators brazenly bartered their votes, the peo ple of the city thanked the late grand jury and Judge Wallace for their action in trying to put an end to this, and de nounced the culpable and criminal in terference of the Southern Pacific Rail road company in politics, aB the first cause of the vile corruption that exists. The chairman was authorized to ap point a committee of seven to designate thirty citizens as tbe executive commit tee of an organization of citizens who should labor to free the city and state from boodlers, and see that the work of the grand jury is not lost. Another resolution requested the superior judges to re-elect Judge Wal lace presiding judge for the ensuing term, and appointed a committee to meet to morrow and present the resolu tions to the judges. UNDKR WAt'KK. A Passenger Steamer bank In the Wil- lamette Hirer. Portland, Ore., Jan. 5. —The steamer Telephone went ashore at the mouth of the eWillamette river this morning. There were eighty-five paeaengers aboard. They were all transferred to' the steamer Undine, which passed the scene soon after the accident, and brought to thia city. From the pilot it is learned that a heavy fog was hanging over the river at the time. Jußt before the steamer struck he realized his dan gerous position and stopped the vessel, but owing to the strong current she was carried down the stream. Seeing thia he started her up the stream again, and had proceeded some distance, when the steamer ran aground on the break water, wbich owing to the high state of the river was completely submerged., The vessel aoon began to fill and her stern to slowly sink. She is now com pletely under water, with the exception of the bow, wflich ia supported and held fast by the breakwater. Had it not been for the latter fact the vessel would have sunk in seventy feet of water, and the fate of the passengers would have been extremely doubtful. The value of the freight aboard did not excee'a $500; is impossible now te estimate the amount of the damage. The steamer was valued 'at about $60,000. Negligence of the Company. Salbm, Ore., Jan. 5. —The state board of railway commissioners find that tbe accident on the Union Pacific railroad, FIVE CENTS. near La Grande, December 29th, in which three peraons were killed, waa due to the negligence of the company. The board says the atate of the engine waa not suited to the track. ROBERT AND MINNIE. The Government* Suit Against the Schooner Quietly Dismissed.
