lck Tho Situation or the Strlko Very
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
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
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
value that money can buy

situation hero looks gloomier than ever.
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

tho minds of physicians in this city. Tho

Superintendent of Police Murphy's office.
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

"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,

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
'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,

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."
