The black ejo givui tariff reform in the ilefoat of Mills will ba resented by Texas, tlio bannor tariff roform Btato. That's why U. Q. Mills will bo clcoted United States sonator. Battlo ships aro hurried out of the jards now without tho armor boing tested. This is dono on a pretext that a war with Chile is threatened It is safe to say tho test will nover bo madn. Tho Globo-Domocrat says: "The Dcmoorats would liko to nominate oqo of their governors for president or vioo presidont, but not ono of them couldbe rxpected to carry hi3 own state, and bo they aro ruled out.' There's where you're off. lion James Stephen Hogg could carry his own state. Somo of tho nowspapor reporters at Washington having filled their papers for weoks with wails about tho Mills faction are now filling their papors with explanations of how that faction haB disappeared. Of oourso thero never has been suoh a faction in con gress. The next fight will be in tho Democratic national convention and it wont bo the Mills faction or any other faction. It will be betweon tho pconlo and the spoilsmen. A reporter of tho Dallas News in terviewed Harry Tracy and reported him as saying, among other things, "That alliance mon will try to got tho Domocratio party to adopt their do mands, and in the event that party refuses to do so, tho' allianco men will go on as in tho days of yore, voting tho Domocratio tioket." Mr. Tracy denies saying anything of the kind. If Mr. Traoy will always stay that oloae to the truth, ho mxy prevail. A very good way to judge a states man and a patriot is by the enemies he has mado. lion. II. Q. Mills, in his fight for tho speekership, had eve ry job representative in Washington and out of it against him. Thero was the World's Fair crowd, tho servico pension crowd, the District of Colum bia orowd, in faot, every crowd that expected to work tLo present! of tho pooplo's money, were against Mills. Added to these, were tho place huntors, tho professional epoilsmon who see nothing to admire in a man that fights tho battles of tho people. Tho politicians slow Mills. Tho contest in Ohio for tho senator ship is heating up. The fight between Shcnnan and Foraker has dcvelcpod into a fight betweon tho Harrison and Blaine elements, it being considered a test of tho rolativo popularity of tho president and his secretary of state as candidates for tho Republican nomi nation for president. Tho organiza tion of the legislature showed first blood for Sherman, as a Sherman man was elected spoakor of tho houso. Hut the Blainoitcs demand the election of Foraker and a desperate conlliot is in progress. Governor MoKinley is a Sherman man and is soundly abused for using his influoucc in favor ot tho great Gold Bug. It is probable that tho Ohio senatorial contest will en gendor enough bitterness among the Republicans to give the Dotnoorat a fighting chauco to carry that stato thiR year. ,3&v ROUNDING THEM UP. The Mexican Revolutionists Are Reported AS SURROUNDED IN A OHAPARRAL In the Kxtrrmr N'urtliwontcrn Corner ol Znpntn County liy UnlU-il State Troop nnd lltiincfirN nml It Is IinpoiNltile for Them to Kncnpe. Lahedo, Tox., Jnn. 5 Saturday night a courier arrived in Laredo, bringing with him a lotter to J. J. Ilttynes from his brother, who is slierilT of Zapata county nnd with Captain Hardio's troop of cavalry in tho lower country. The following is an extract from tho letter, which was dated December 111: "1 havo just arrived in this place. Wo have had two fights with Garza himself nnd men. Wo found them in this (Za pata COUlltv. with ill milt. IfiO nr 200 mmi Got to hirt rnmn nfrnr fiiniilmnt If inta in a very thick brush, so thick that the runners cowu not go tnrougn. JUaitiu ianoArce, Jack Thatcher, Van Riper, Brooks' rangers and myself were in the lead. Wo were commanded to halt by Garza nnd his men, who were out of sight. Wo let them havo a couple of volleys from our puns, which put them to flight. It was dark by this time, and we had to camp in Garza's camp. At daylight we took his trail and at sun down yesterday wo overtook him ugain in tho Randado p;isture, gave them an other shot or two, and they okiptictl. Wo have several prisoners nnd ono wounded man who belonged to Garza. Our horses are played out. Captain Hardio is a daisy and lias good men. We could have captured Garza if it had not been dark. Ullrtoilbri'ii nviilmirn (if ffiiryiiVi presence in person was found in the de serted camp." Tho two troops of United States cav alry who arrived in Laredo Saturday night from San Antonio will leave La redo today to reinforco tlioso already in the field in the lower country. A call was mado on Colonel Morris at Fort Mcintosh, and from him the main point in the above letter was confirmed. Tho Randado ranch is one of the strong holds of Garza and his men, and has doubtless been raided oro this. It is thought that tho authorities probably made some arresta here. The troops who leave hero this morn ing have received tho services of an ex perienced guide and scout named Trini dad Foyle, who knows all tho country from hero to Brownsville. A call was mado on Consul Diaz, who had received a telegram this morning from Monterey stating that news had been received there from the Mexican consul at Rio Grando City to tho efTect that the United States troops had had another brush with Garza's men at Cue vitas, in Starr county, about twenty miles from Randado, in which tho troops captured Pablo Munoz, one of Garza's leaders, who is given the title of colonel among them. They also captured eight horses, some carbines, ammunition and valuable papers which will still further aid the authorities in ferreting out tho facts which have been puzzling them so long as to who is backing Garza finan cially. The telegram stated that Garza's men mado a stand, but fled after tho first volley from the United States troops. It is likely that tho troops were thoso under Captain Hardio, Captain Brooks' Toxas rangers and Sheriff Haynus and his posse. Tho number of the revolutionists could not bo learned, as they fled and scattered in tho brush nnd disappeared. It is thought by Consul Diaz, from tho fact that papors nnd dispatches wero cap tured, that Garza in person was with tho men. A conductor who camo in over tho Mexican National Sunday morning noti fied tho Mexican authorities that he passed a body of armed men early Sun day morning, about forty miles from Neuvo Laredo. He could not tell whether they wero government troops or revolu tionists. Their number could not be dis cerned in tho darkness. Revolutionist Siirroiinileil, Laredo, Tex, Jan. 5. It is stated hero that tho Mexican revolutionists are surrounded in a ehapparral in the ex treme northwestern comer of Zapata county by United States troops and rangers aud it is almost imjiossiblo for them to escape either to the northward or in tho direction of Mexico. I'ntal Wreck. Ai.nuQUERQOE, N. M., Jan. 5. A freight train was wrecked on tho Atlan tic and Pacific road at Querrino canyon, seven miles west of hero. A defectivo twitch nt that place throw five cars and tho engine from tho track and they rolled down an embankment into tha Rio Purcio river. Engineer Nit-Inns was instantly killed and Silda Georgo and Bralfcman Robort Hinman were fatally injured. School .SiipKi'liiteiiilent Held Tor roi-fjerv. WKATiium-oiti), Tox., Jan. 5. County Superintendent of Education J. W. Brannon was arrested on tho charge of forgery. Tho forgery consists in signing tho name of County Treasurer B. C. Tarlrington to a check for $.100, which was cashed. Tho community is mysti fied and his friends believe thero is somo mistako. ARKANSAS OUTLAWS. A IIhikI of Them Siiek Dlnntmil .Snreral or Tliein Cuptitrril. Pi.ve Bli'ff, Ark., Jan. C Dinwood, n small railroad station twelve miles from here, has been terrorized tho pjist two weeks by a band of negroes. Under tho leadership of Milton Purycar, a whito man, they havo been bunting houses and committing other lawless and desperate deeds. Tho town was again thrown into great excitement Sat urday night, when thoy assembled in town and burned a largo ginhouse of Dr. J. E. Bryan and leveled the railroad do pot to tho ground with fire. Tho object in burning tho depot was that its location did not suit tho outlaws. A few weoks since thirty bales of cotton mysteriously disappeared from tho ware house in Dinwood. Theso negroes were seen to havo largo rolls of inouoy. Be- toro the ginhouse and depot wero bunted thero was a general firing of weapons nnd windows and doors wero riddled, the object being to keep peoplo in their houses. A number of horses nnd cattle were killed. Hon. King Whito, mayor of Pino Bluff, organized a posse nnd started for tho scene of mob violence Sunday after noon and succeeded in capturing "Pury ear, the leader, and six negroes. Thoy, together with ono J. O'Connor, who was drunk nnd is supposed to know some thing of the whereabouts of tho remain ing outlaws, wero lodged in jail hero Sunday night. Another posse has left here in pursuit of the ring leaders, num bering some eighty, who havo not yet been captured. Dr. Graves' iloiiliij. Denver, Jan. 5. Dr. Graves Monday denied absolutely that ho had confessed sending the poison to Mrs. Baniaby or made any damaging ndmission implica ting himself or Colonel Ballou, tho Providence lawyer. The fact remains, however, Colonel Ballon has fled; no ono knows whither, though his friends assert that he has gono to Providence, where his presenco is urgently needed in a business way. Doputy Sheriff Wilson still maintains that Graves confessed, but Doputy Means refuses to talk about what Gravp is reported to have said. The grand jury is said to be investigating this tiew rum of affairs. When the grand jury adjourned nt a lato hour this evening it was learned that nothing had been dono by them in regard to indicting Ballou. Graves caused a surprise Monday when he said Ballou camo to him Saturday night last and told him ho was going to leave town because he was afraid of being arrested if he stayed in Denver longer. When the doctor gave this infonnation ho sud denly became reticent and nothing further could be learned from him. ltuviijiei, r I,n Grippe. Chicago, Jan. 5. The grip is causing a number of deaths in Illinois. A special from Virginia, 111., says that Mrs. Henry Quigg, aged 02, had died of the diseaso nnd that her husband and 1nnWir,.r - sick with tho samo diseaso nnd not ox- pected to live. A Bloomington specinl says that fullv ono-thinl nf ti,n nu,'a police force is unfit for duty on account ui iiif maiauy, and mat there are many fatilities. especially ninnnn- tlm nmui t Vandalia, according to a special dispatch tho futility list is growing overy day. Various other cities report largo numbers of cases having resulted fatally. Will Agree to fusion. St. Paul, Jnn. fi. It is nunored hero among tho Allianco delegates, who are gathering for their annual meeting, that Ignatius Donnelly, president of tho Alli ance, has been converted within tho past few days to tho fusion idea and that ac tion will bo taken at the meeting looking to union with tho Democrats on all of fices from presidential electors to mem bers of tho legislature. It is stated that tho Alliance will ask for four of tho nine electors, three of tho seven congressmen, tho governor nnd attorney-general. Members of tho Democratic stato com initteo said that thoy were willing to concedo this much, nnd would also fuse on members of the legislature through out tho stato, giving tho Allianco tho privilege of nomination in country dis tricts, the Democrats to take all city dis tricts. llrltUli-Amitricim Trout Conipnny.
