LAmm2TFXJS0L0O BANKER AND BROKER. 308 AUSTIN AVENUE, While tlio l'oor Minimis of Uncle Sum Continue to Oct Lost, mill Are Home lck Tho Situation or the Strlko Very Gloomy. San Antonio, Jim. 11. Tho two prin cipal topics on hand hero still continuo to bo tho Garza revolution and tho striko of tho Sap and Western Union employes. Garza still continues to bo as hard to catch as ever, although tho military predicting every day that tho next day is to witness his capture and tho utter routing of his already scattered forces. Tho main trouble seems to bo that Mr. Garza and hia satellites are perfectly at home in tho brush, while tho poor min ions of Uncle Sam" are continuously get ting lost, as well as homesick. Tho lat ter find it much harder chasing the Gnr zaites tlian they did tho Modoc Indians in tho lava beds, and would like to meet their foes somewhere outside of tho dense cliapparel that environs tho latter. Tho banditti do not seem in tho least daunted by tho skirmishes they have gone through. Tho principal and most disagreeable experience that has tended to daunt them has been tho same ono that has camped on the trail of tho United States soldier as well, and that is la grippe. Tho scarc ity of water has also tended to create intense suffering on both sides, but it is felt more by tho government soldiery than by tho Garzaites, who have tho ad vantage of knowing where what littlo water there is in that neck of the woods is located. All sorts of reports concerning Garza and his band are constantly being re ceived and the correspondents of tho southern and eastern dailies aro affluent in their surmises as to tho best and most efficacious manner of throwing salt on the tails of tho revolutionists, so to speak, and to compass their capture, and if the military had taken their gratuitous advice, tho chances are that Garza would not only have been stronger than ho is, but to-day might bo warming tho chair of state of Mexico that ho seeks so ar dently. Garza seems to receive more monoy constantly from powerful and wealthy supporters in tho Mexican territories, or from some other places. All his men are bound to him by the images printed on tho Mexican coins that they receive as stipends, and which Garza seems to bo bestowing on them lavishly, Tho so- vority with which tho Mexican govern ment has dealt with those supposed to sympathizo with him has strengthened instead of weakened his cause, esjiecially as many of tho suspects were entirely innocent nnd had many friends to sur vive them. The manner in which our tioops who have been trying to co-operato with tho Mexicans in tho capture of Garza have been treated by them has excited indig nation among tho Americans, and this has tended to strain tho relations be tween tho two republics. During tho Indian campaign when Lieutenant Bullis and his scouts used to cross into Mexico, and when Captain Lawton nnd his forces captured old Geronimo, Natchez and their bands in Mexico, tho troops of both countries used to act in concert, and tho Mexicans got very indignant at our government for making good Indians out of old Ger onimo and his Apaches as soon as thoy wero captured, and it is tho custom among tho Aztecs. They cannot under stand or apprcciato tho humano treat ment by this government of prisoners of war, and still clmg to tho custom in voguo nmong them when they captured the Alamo, and this very custom seems to bo ono of the principal reasons why Mr. Catarino Garza objects to tho Diaz government. Garza is convinced that should ho fall into tho hands of tho Mex ican authorities that a very brief spaco of time would elapso beforo subsequent proceeding would interest him no more, and that the funeral would bo conducted on tho most primitivo and economical plan. Uo therefore prefers to run moro risk of capture ou this side of tho Rio Grando and to give the othor sido a wide berth, except when ho thinks ho can mako a raid and return in safety. All of his followers aro imbued with similar convictions, and sinco this government dealt so lightly with Sandoval and his confrerees who aro now enjoying liberty and tho salubrity of tho American cli mate, thoy aro encouraged to mako this tnde of tho Rio Grande tho base of their operations. value that money can buy Best line of men and boys over coats in Waco.

Tho failure of tho conference between tho management of tho Aransas Pass railroad and tho representatives of tho strikers to accomplish nny satisfactory result has tended to widen tho breach and tho belief is general hero that if in forty-eight hours somo agreement is not reached that tho employes of tho other ronds centering hero who have pledged tho strikers their support will tie up those roads rather than to handle coal and freight of tho Aransas Pass. Fear ing a coal famine tho electric light com pany jmivimMHi iuiiij-jivo vuriuuiia ui i coal. It was intimated that this' purchase was miido for supply for tho Aransas Pass railway, whoso supply is getting short, but it is claimed that tho ! purchase was exclusively for tho electric light company and to prevent tho city being enveloped in total darkness in tho event of a general tio-up, Tho situation is gradually tending to- waru unit point wneuier eitner war or Ieaco must prevail. Tho railway com panies lmvo notified their employes that under the law thu railway companies are compelled to handle each other's busi ness, and tho employes have notilied tho companies that thoy will not bundle tho San Antonio and Aransas Pass supplies or freight.

The third rabbit hunt of tho fanners of this county took place Wednesday, nnd at tho closo of tho day tho twenty-six men who formed tho opposite sides succeeded in killing 878 rabbits. This is a total of 2,1112 killed in threo hunts. For the past three years many orchards have been almost totally destroyed by tho rabbits eating tho roots of tho trees, and to pre vent this tho fanners aro thinning them out as fast as possible.

Tho visitor was about 5 feet 8 or 10 inches high, dark complexion, dark brown hair neatly cut, dark mustacha and a beard of sovornl days' growth, black eyes, 25 years old, and clothing much tho worse for wear. Ho wanted to talk to tho chief "and was very roluc tant to talk to newspaper men, but con stant questioning drew forth his story. JJo wanted lxilico protection, which was assuid htm by tho Superintend out. , "I am tho identical Charloy Ross, stolen from Philadelphia so many years ago. Tho first thing I remember was when I was about ! years of age, and 1 was then standing at tho comer of South Union and Stdvens Btreets, Nashville, I nv..,. -...... A P Wnltinli. nml wifn whom I was over taught to believo wore my father and mother. They livo at 84 Stevens street,. Between that timo and when I was about 10 I gravitated be tween Walpolu and Mrs. Faloy, who was Biiid to bo my aunt. I worked at Hough ton's harness store, but, not liking it, learned tho tinner's trade. I first learned I was Charley 'Ross when about 12 years old. A song had been written on tho abduction, and ono evening a number wero singing it, when ono of tho men turned to mo and said: '1 don't suppose yon know that you are Charley Ross, do youV 'It made no impression upon me at tha timo and I drifted away from Nash Wile, going to Chicago, Kansas City and othor places, finally bringing up at Duquesne, 111. Tho iMioplo thero thought I was u railroad detectivp. This happened also" at Cairo and Paducnh. ' "Between MoKinzio and Naslivillo (1 was going back"), two men wero on tho train, when ono of them looked at me and said to tho oilier: 'Ho is a bravo man, and if lio over roaches his father thero is a great future beforo him.' 1 began then to think and am now satisfied that I am Charloy Ross, and when I get to Philadelphia 1 can prove it in two hours. Thero aro men in this city who can identify mo, but I cannot give their names; but sotno uro detectives." Ho goes nndor tho name of Walpolo.
