CHOKED TO DEATH. Four Anarchists G rioted for Rioting at Xerex, Spain. Mcdrid, Feb. 10.—Four leaders of the anarchists who made the recent attack upon the town of Xeres were garroted today. The platform on which the men were executed was surrounded by de tachments of infantry and cavalry, and the route from the jail to the platform was lined with soldiers with loaded rifles. The executions were public, and the plaza and the streets leading to it were packed with a dense masa of people. . The naraoi of the four men executed were Buaigni, Zarzetella, La Mala and Lebrijano. When the prisoners mounted the acaffold they were accompanied by four executionera and by prieats and monka. Zarzetella was very much excited, and his demeanor Bhowed that he waa terribly frightened but the other three culprits were calm Bnd reaigned. The condemned men were led to chairs, in which the execu tioners securely bouud them. Metal collars were then placed about their necka. Then each executioner took hia position at the back of the posts and graaped the powerful leverß operating the garrote. At a given aignal each executioner gave a sharp turn to the lever, and each of the condemned men died instantly. After the executions, though the spec tator, many of whom were friends of the men executed, were bitter in their denunciation of the authorities, there was no sign of any disturbance, and everything in the town waa tranquil. One of the executed anarchists left Madrid, in which he said the anarchist preaa takes advantage of the ipnorance of the working classes, to inculcate theories againat juatice and reason. He desired hia comradea to know that the anarchist journala had been deceiving them, and waa convinced that many of thoae preaching doctrines to them are perfectly indifferent as to their fate. He advised hia comrades to repudiate their teachers and be honest workers, with faith in God and religion. A collision occurred today between anarchists and police in Barcelona. A number of revolver shota were ex changed. London Cablings.

AN INDIAN SCARE. Navajo* Frighten Rancher* and Cowboy* In New Mexico. Denver, Feb. 10.— A dispatch re ceived this afternoon from New Mexico stating that the Navajo Indians had gone on the war path, and that a battle was in progress near Albuquerque, created great excitement. Later ad vices show that tbe first reports were exaggerated. A dispatch from Coolidge, N. M., tonight, says the trouble is be tween Navajoß and cattle men, and was caused by renegade Indians killing cat tle. Chief Mariano was requested about ten days ago to remove these Indians. This was granted, but Tuesday three Indians were found coming down the trail toward Chavaez, and the cowboys ordered them back. They started back, and on the bluffs built signal fires. Soon forty renegade Indians came to their assistance, in de fiance of the cowboys' warning not to trespass. There were no cowboys at Chavaez at the time, but the Indians claimed that their deserted camp had been burned by cowboys and they were going to get even. The Indians threatened to burn the San Antonio ranch, occupied by a cat tleman named Coddington, and they left Chavaez, going in that direction. Harry Cody, his mother and two men were at the ranch. They were greatly terrified when the Indiana rode up and began yelling and shooting indiscrimin ately. No one was hurt, and the Indi ans, apparently satisfied with having scared the people, rode away. Harry Cody at once mounted a pony and rode sixteen miles to Coolidge for assistance. Fifteen armed cowboys immediately left for the ranch,which is sixteen miles distant, arriving at 9 p. in., but all was qniet. The cowboys remained at the ranch until noon today, but could dis cover no Indians. Lieutenant Wallace of the Second cavalry and twenty men from) Fort Wingate, with pack mules, passed Coolidge this evening, on their way to San Antonio ranch, with orders to remain there several days and be ready to quell any hostilities oh the part of the Indians. This evening every thing is quiet at and in the vicinity of Chavaez. Alhuquerque, N. M., Feb. 10.—A courier from White Oaks, N. M., says tbe Mescallero Indians, on the reserva tion near there, obtained a quantity of whiskey and indulged injit. Then they got to fighting among themselves. Re volvers and knives were brought into action, and the result was the killing of four bucks and one squaw. Two Indi ans, the only participants in the fight who were not killed, were placed in the guard house. A MIGHTY COMBINATION. Coal Producing and Carrying: Interest! Pool for Profit. Philadelphia, Feb. 10. —It is an nounced today that the arrangements which for some time had been in pro gress, designed to place the coal produc ing and carrying interests on a more stable foundation, have been completed. The primary object was to secure a more economical management in the coal trade, by avoiding expensive agencies, etc. The plan formed by President McLeod embraces the most extensive financial enterprise yet undertaken in this country. Briefly outlined it means that the Reading road has acquired practical control of the Lehigh Valley railway, the Central railway of New Jersey and other lines, and in addition to the Reading Terminal, now constructing in Philadelphia, will have the magnificent terminals of the Lehigh Valley and fersey Central in New York harbor. Through the Lehigh Valley's new western extension there will be provided a direct route to the lakes at Buffalo, with a spacious terminal there. In the earaying on of the coal trade the saving in commissions, agency expenses, etc., is expected to reach eeveral million dollars anuuilly. When it is further known that the control of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western has paseed into hands friendly to the Read ing, the investing public will recognize that the new arrangements will tend to secure harmony in the coal trade and save unnecessary expenses. The Lehigh Valley also is paying the Erie $1,250,000 annually for vrackage, which amount will now be a net gain to the Lehigh Valley. In addition to thiß, a vast amount of traffic will be thrown to it. This coup of President McLeod is con sidered one of the greatest in the history of railroad financiering, and makes the Reading as strong a corporation as there is in the world. The plan iB approved by Messrs. Drexel, Welsh and others. SINGING A DOLEFUL TUNE. A Score of Wealthy Jewelers Swindled Out of a Large Sum. Nbw York, Feb. 10. —A score of jewelers who have stores in Maiden lane are singing a tune which is not at all to their liking. The first line tells part of their story, and is: "We have been swindled out of $50,000 worth of loose diamonds and from $30,000 to $100,000 worth of miscellaneous jewelry." A more indignant lot of merchants would be hard to find. Substantially it is the old story of a firm building up a fair credit, buying stock heavily on time and then suspending by the mysterious disappearance of the assets and books. This is what the suspended firm of D. Gunndling & Coak, jewelry, 45 Maiden lane, are accused of doing. Late yes terday afternoon David Gunndling, the senior member of the firm, waß arrested and lodged in Ludlow-street jail, where he remains in default of $10,000 bail. Partners Disagree. Nbw York, Feb. 10. —Application was made today to the supreme court for the dissolution of the firm of Farmer, Little &Co., type founders, New York and Chicago, and the appointment of a re ceiver.

Farmer, against the other two partners, Andrew Little and John Bentley, be cause the last two partners wanted to join the type foundery trust against the wishes of the Messrs. Farmer. The firm is declared perfectly eolvent, with a surplus of Beveral hundred thousand dollars and owe very little. The busi ness has been established thiity-two years.

San Francisco, Feb. 10. — Marion Hedapeth, who ia wanted in St. Louis for connection with the Glendale, Mo., train robbery, was arrested at the point of a pistol at the postoffice here today by Captain Lees and a detail of detectives. Hedspeth waa taken to Lees' office, where two revolvers, a roll of green backa aggregating $800, $200 in gold, and a number of diamond rings and other jewelry were found on him. Hedapeth took his arrest good naturedly and said he was willing to return to St. Louis without requisition papers. The detectives had information that Hedapeth waa in town, and suspecting that he was in communication with friends in the east, determined to lay in wait for him at the postoffice and sur prise him when he called for his mail. The watch was kept up for weeks, but it was not until today that he put in an appearance, when he walked down Washington street and turned into the postoffice. Detective Byram waa stand ing on Washington street, and followed him in. He did nothing till Hedspeth had mounted the stairs and was about to cross the threshold leading to the hall upon which the delivery windows face. In a recess near the place Detect ives Lees and Silvey and Policemen Campbell and Cody were stationed. At a signal from Lees, Byram grasped Hedspeth from behind and pinned his arms to his sides. The other officers then presented their pistols and pointed them at Hedspeth, Captain Lees re marking: "Take your hands out of your pockets or I'll kill you." Hedapeth obeyed reluctatly, and was hurried into a room in the postoffice, whence he was taken to police head quarters. Hedapeth waa consigned to a cell in the new prison and a special watch was set on him. "I gave the police a hot chose," be said, "and to tell the truth, I did not expect to be taken in." "Where were you when your wife was arrested?" was asked. "I was at 772 Tenth street, Oakland, at the time. She is innocent of any crime and should not have been arrested, and I have no doubt she will go free in a short time." "Were you in concealment most of the time." "No; on the other hand, I have at tended the theaters and gone around to public places, and have made no special endeavor to avoid arrest." "I regard Hedspetb as one of tbe most dangerous criminals in the United States." said Captain Leea, "and I feel thankful that he was taken without a fight. His wife and Sly warned us to be careful, or he would kill gome one. When Byram clutched him he had a pistol in each hand in hia overcoat pocket. Since he has been in California Hedapeth baa committed a number of Crimea, and he is suspected of having broken open a number of safes in Oak land." St. Louis, Feb. 10.—-Chief of Police Harrigan has received a dispatch from San Francisco, notifying him that Ma rion Hedspeth, the Glendale, Mo., ex press robber, was arrested, and will be sent to St. Louis at once.

The prisoner grew very sullen under questioning, and finally said that if he had to go to jail he would take an official or two from Redwood City along with him. "It has been asserted that some of the officers at Redwood gave the Canadian money to make him quit. Is that true?" "I don't say who gave him money," answered Soto, "but he was paid and I should think that ought to have been enough. I don't see what they want to prosecute me for now." The Prohibition Ordinance.
