Tho Waoo Post of this week con tains a very effusive editorial oritioi6m of a communication that appeared in Tub New January lst. Tho Post is, doubtless, awaro that tho mere pub lioation of a communication by a paper, (loos not onmmitt tho papor to the inattor contained in tho communi cation. Tho faot that The News pubished tho artido does not show that The News endorses anything that is conveyed by the article. It was written by a well-known local humorist and published in the local columns. The NkwS docs not objoot to BUoh immigration as will be of ben efit to America, but on the contrary would oncourago it. But Tue News is and always has been vory dear in its position as to unrestricted emmigration. Amorioa does not nood and does not desiro the pauper and criminal olasscs of Europe as citizens. Neither should tho Post desiro such immigration if it has tho welfare of America at heart. But to all thrifty, industrious and well dis posed Germans, Swodes, Norwegians, Danes and all othors, The News twill extend a cheerful wolcome. Our Gorman contemporary ratLor strotoh ed the toxt in this oaso in order to make a point for foreigners. If it will examine tho filos of The News it will find that thore is little diffcronco of opinion on this subjoot botwoen it and tho Post. PclTcr has introduced a bill in the senate to provide for tho loan of money to the farmers of Indiana. Are not the farmers of Indiana allow ed to borrow money in Indiana' We wero of the opinion that Texas was the only state whoroin- the farmers wero prohibited from borrowing, and tho prohibition hero did not last longer than a trial oaso oould be put before tho supreme court. They must have an alien land law in Indiana, Tbo Express says The Newb has not switohod in a week and is still for Mills. Tho switchman on Tub News went on strike some time ago and tho management has ooncludod to leave that position vacant. Has Barney moved to Fort Worth or does he send thoso editorial para graphs from Dallas to, tho Gazotte. Tho can't, shan't, won't and don't stylo of the Tammany bravo shows up in every issue. The counoil has again "sat" upon the major's bond sale. It devolves upon thoso who voted against the sale to make a better one and make it quiok. The city needs monoy. As the timo for tho eleotion of mayor of Port Worth arrives the public is reminded of tho fact that a gentleman named Dr. Broilos livos in the Panther City. The News is covering tho field now and the people appreciate that fact whioh is another way of saying tho subscribers they oomo rolling in. The city hospital is now ready for patients, It is started on a small Bcalo, but then there only a few poo pie in Waoo who need a hospital. Tho Waco Board of Trado can do wonders for the city yet if it will only get together. STILL ON THE WARPATH Revolutionist Garza Not Yet Captured, BUT HE AND HIS MEN HAVE GRIPPE lh CMlrna Mutter Im oMIkiiIIii: tho Auult on the llnltlmnre'tt Crow Snllnra on tile MhiicI -Tho Car Angry About the Ailiilteriitiou of Food for l'ein;iiit,. San Antonio, Jan. 8. The expected tilling of the capture of Garza did not arrive, although anxiously expected, and 110 newH of tho wonting party sent in pursuit of him camo to headquarters Thursday. The fact that a failure to capture him was not reported wan con sidered as a favorable .sign and gave rise to the hope that the party was on a hot trail and did not think it best to send back a courior until he could bring in some definite tidings. No doubt is expressed here that Garza is somowhere in the neighborhood of his father-in-law's ranch near Palito Blanco, more tlinn seven leasruus from Rio Grande City, and it is said that he is not ' only .suffering from his old wounds throngh tho stomach, but that la grippe has him in its clutches tightly and that malady has also manifested it self in the ranks of his followers, many of whom are suffering from aggravated forms of it, which their recent hard ships incident to active service have in tensified. The troops sent in pursuit are also suf fering great hardships, and a consider able immber of them linve succumbed to lllflllenv'i nrrrrrni-nljvl In- iiriiiciii-ii l.r.4 ' the main bodies do not seem discouraged by the attacks of their companions by this disagreeable malady, and all efforts aro now being directed to driving a cor don of troops aronnd tho banditti. From tho manner in which tho latter aro scat tered the success of such an undertak ing is problematical, but the military authorities believe it jwrfectly practical. Great discouragement is felt over the flat refusal by the civic Federal authori ties to givo tho military tho proper sup port and assistance or to employ men with the search service fund who would point out for capturo tho followers and supporters of Garza and the violators ot tho neutrality laws. A drill by the Seminole scouts and their pack mules took place Thursday prior to its being sent off Thursday at 8 o'clock to tho front via Laredo. The mules aro admirably trained and Chief Scout Bailey handles them well. Tho infantry at the post hero aro being drilled in the now tactics for field nnd regular battlo movements and espe cially to deploy forward on centre sec tions. Tho drill Thursday attracted a large attendance, as it is beginning to look like the infantry may have to march out after Garza, and it is being drilled with that in viow. If Garza is not corralled before the end of this week General Stanley and part of his staff will go iuto the field next week, but he is expecting that tho movement will bo suppressed before then and there will bo no necessity for his going. Investigating the Akunult. Valstuo, Cal., Jan. 8, Tho investi gation into tho assault on the Baltimore's sailors at Valparaiso began Thursday morning tit Mare Island in the presouct of Judge Advocate General Remy, United States District Attorney Gartiei and Uuitwl States Commissioner J. S. Hanley. Judge Reiny conducted the investigation. John W. Tabot, an apprentice on board the Baltimore, was tho first wit- nebs. He was ono of tho liberty party on sept. 1U. He stated that C. W. Ri gen, the boatswain's mate was killed with him during tho afternoon. About three o'clock ho went into a saloon called the Shakeieake. The proprietoi ordered them out, declaring the mob dis banded. The sailors and boldiore were preparing for an attack on the Balti more's men, and ho did not want anj trouble in his place. Riggin and Tal bot laughed at tho warning, but they left the place and went to tho True Blue saloon. "About 4 o'clock, while coming out, I saw Riggiu threatened by Chilean sailors in man-of-war uniforms. I ran across and tried to separate them. One of the Chileans spat in my face and 1 knocked him down. Instantly a crowd of over 100 appeared in the street, and we started to run and soon jumped on a passing car. The mob followed anil stoned tho car and we wero instantly sur rounded by tho mob. I saw Riggin fall and tried to reach him, but was stabbed in tho back, nnd I turned to run. Aftei going a few blocks I turned into a door way and was again stabbed in tho back. I got in nnd got into n corner and de fended myself with a chair. Tho moll followed, and tho Clulean sailor, man-of- war uniform, stabbed mo again. The. bartender finally put ino out and barri caded tho door. The mob clamored out side for admittance and after an hour a policeman arrested and took me to jail. Ho disguised mo by substituting my hat for a sailor's cap with tho word 'Balti more' on it so the mob would not notice that I was an American sailor. The of ficer turned'me over to two other police men, who struck me soveral times, al though I wns making no resistnnco. 1 had no arms of any kind and was xer fectly sober. After a short titno in jail I was sent to tho hospital with Hamil ton, Painter and Davidson, all badlj hurt. Wo wero kept there four or livt days and thou sent to tho ship, where ) was in tho hospital four days. Nono ex cept American sailors wero attacked bj the mob." Tho Cmr Angr.. St. PcrEKSinmo, Jan. 8. The Czai displayed extreme anger upon learning of the adulteration of food intended foi tho starving peasants. It is reported that tho principal municipal function nries have been dismissed in consequent of these disclosures. Three agents a) Odessa have been arrested for having bold adulterated grain. KATE CLAXTON'S COOL HEAD. 11 Mop n I'lre Tiinle In llnrrl' Theatre at 1otiillle. Louisvn.i.R, Jan. 8. An ovil genius seems to overshadow Kato Clnxton. Her ojiening performance at Harris' theatre was not without the attending pauiu which follows her from city to city. It w:ts in tho last act, just when Mis3 Claxton as Loiuse, the blind girl, was locked in tho garret, that .somo ono in tlu? rear of the theatre cried "Fuel " For a moment there was an awful stillness There wero those in the houso who had been thinking of Miss Clnxton as a fore runner of fire, nnd when the cry came it seemed but a fulfilment of their expecta tions. Tho audience arose simultaneous ly and a stampedo for tho exit began. Women nnd children screamed and men tried to keep order by yelling nt tho top of their voices, oidy to make the scene worso. Miss Clnxton's nerve perhaps saved the lives of somo who might otherwise have been crushed to death. When the panic was nt its heiglt she rushed forward on the stago. Her eyes for tho first time during tho performance lost their blank ness, and their power seemed to stop the panic. She raised her hood and called to the nearest to sit down. This was taken np by others. Thot-e who were in tho paiquet remained standing where they were, but from the galleries and dress circle the rush continued. It was fully ten minutes before the players could continue. The panic, it is learned, wns occasioned by some ono in tho street yelling "fight" immediately in front of the theatre. Some one else took this for fire and sproad it. Spencer Coleman, a brother of Miss Claxton, says that these panics which seem to follow her nlways occur at the same time this one occurred. When Miss Claxton discovered the Brooklyn theatre to be on fire sho was lying on tho bed of straw in the last act. PLAYING THE SUCKERS. I II mv a Itustlo nml a "Ttiuky" rifi'red 3Ieuiphls Sports. l'o ny Memphis, Jan. 8. There is a lot of sjwrts in this town who are hunting for somebody to luck them around the block. All because they picked up a wild west erner for a sucker and he "mado mon keys" out of them. His name is Dr. Miller and he camo to Memphis a fow days ago with a drove of ponies. Among them was an ugly little beast that ox cited the derision of all who saw him. This morning a crowd of sporting btock men gathered at the sale, began to guy tho doctor about his "Tacky." "That lony, gentlemen, can do something thnt none of your fancy horses can do. Ho can pull 300 pounds of sand attached to a roiK) a mile long for a distance of ten feet," said the doctor. "What will you bet on it?" demanded the crowd. "Any thing you liko," said tho doctor, calmly pulling out a wallet full of big bills and drafts. Tho sports called in their friends, nnd altogether they raised ij-'i.OOO in cash. Ono of them also put up 160 acres of land in Iowa. Tho doctor covered nil bets. ino mat came on in tue arternoon on a smooth turnpike. Tho bag of sand was weighed and tho rope was measured and straightened. Tho doctor took his de spised pony to tho other end and hitched him to tho rojK), then slapped him on tho rump nnd told him to "go." Tho little animal moved quietly forward till tho rojK) was taut and then gave a steady pull. Tho bag moved twenty feet. "It's an old trick of his, gentlemen," said the doctor when ho rejoined the crowd. "Ho has done it before many a time. It's the gentle, steady pidl that does it. Much obliged to you all," and ho led the pony leisurely back to the stable. right With aiuuiiMiiimig. Louisville, Jan. 8. J. W. Reed, a deputy marshal of Glasgow, Ky., who arrived in the city, brings information of a despernte fight between himself and a gang of illicit distillers, who wore making moonbhino whiskey in a secluded portion of tho town. Mr. Eeed discovered tho still nnd attempted to take it single handed. The moonshiners, who num bered half a dozen or more, mnde a des perate fight, and tho marshal found it necessary to use his revolvers. Chris. Depp, one of tho illicit distillers, was perhaps fatally wounded nnd soveral others received injuries. George Martin nnd sovoral othors whose names coidd not bo learned, wero arrested and aro now in tho Glasgow jail. Tho still, tho tubes and a quantity of distilled spirit were seized. United States Marshal Burchett has been notified and his depu ties will take charge of tho case. LET 'EM GO. fere's flow ft Peads Slow That We Have Taken Out Last Whack at Prices.
