Austin, Jan. 21. Adjutant General
Mabry has just returned from the Rio
Grande In answer to tho inquiry how
ho hud gotten buck without encounter
ing Garza, ho replied there was very
littlo danger of that. "I believe," ho
added, "that Garza is in trouble on ac
count of demoralization and dissatisfac
tion and even desertions of some of his
men. I believe, too, .that ho will either
surrender or be captured within the
nest ten days by tho rangers. I visited
Garza's father-m-law and Mrs. Garza
and tried to assure them that it was best
for Garza to surrender. Tho old man.
however, did not believe Garza would
surrender and Mrs. Garza, who is quite
pretty and apparently rather patrician
in appearance, seemed to be very proud
of her husband, whoovidently impressed
her with the idea that be will eventually
bo the ruler of Mexico. Her father bad
no question as to Garza's determination
to light and tho young wife did not
doubt his success."
General Mabry says that Garza was
undoubtedly traced. to Corpus Christi
last week, and it is barely possiblo that
he may have been, in San Antonio,
though ho doubts it. The great majority
of tho peoplo near the Bio Grande seem
so much in sympathy with him that it
will be very Jiaru to eaten him. but he
believes that tho Texas rangers will
eventually come up with him if he stays
on Texas soil. Ho speaks very highly of
Captain Brooks of tho rangers, Sheriff
Sheely and Captain Chase and Lieuten
ant Hardio of tho Federal troops, who,
ho says, are most active and capable otli
cors. Thero is some surprise among the
older Mexicans on this side of tho Itio
Grande at thoT action of tho United
States as being, they claim, contrary to
tho precedent of this government as to
previous revolutions in Mexico. Tho
rangers, ns well as tho Federal forces,
are generally placed to good advantage,
as far as Garza's movements can bo an
ticipated, and it is believed he cannot
long keep up his present hiding out tac
tics successfully, and that his attempted
revolution will bo a farce. General
Mabry states ho will return to tlis Rio
Grando immediately. Ho evidently aims
to bo on hand if a real fracas should
huppen of any serious import with tho
border bandit or revolutionary chief, as
tho result may prove him to bo. Ho
doubts that Garza has such material
financial backing as has been reported.

St. Louis. Jan. 31. John Williams
alias "Texas Jack," now lies in a dying
condition at St. Joseph's hospital, at
Alton. If he dies William O'Neil will
havo to stand trial for murder. On Sun
day O'Neil and a man narued Willis
Davis quarreled at Job's ranch relative
to some work about tho place. O'Neil
would havo used a knife had not Davis
threatened to uso a brick. Hero tho
quarrel ended. O'Neil then started to
Alton Junction in company with John
Williams. On tho way ho informed Wil
liams that ho intended to kill Patrick
O'Brien, a workman on tho ranch. Wil
liams later told O'Brien what O'Neil
had said, and a man named Gardner se
created the revolver O'Noil had loaded
for O'Brien.
At the jnntion O'Neil drank freely.
He stayed there all afternoon. Those of
tho men who had accompanied him re
turned early, as thoy wore tired out
from a dance of tho night before; and
they went to bed about 5 o'clock. Wil
liams laid down on a bench to wait for
O'Neil and prevent troublo between him
and O'Brien. But ho fell asleep and
when O'Neil camo in he saw him. Ho
was angry because Williams told
O'Brien, and grabbing a moat-ax, struck
him in the face, indicting a fearful gash
in tho cheek and breaking tho cheek
bono. Then ho pounded and luvcked
Williams in a most unhninan way. no
attempted to cut off Williams' legs, but
did not succeed.
O'Brien was awakened by tho din and
camo down stairs. O'Neil turned on him
and would havo cut him had not Wil
liams groaned. Hearing this, O'Neil
shouted: "Ain't you dead yet?" and
pounced on him again. Ho struck to
split his head, but his aim was poor and
ho broke several ribs instead. O'Brien
then rushed at him and gave him ashovo
which sent him sprawling on tho lloor.

Thoy then tied O'Neil's bands and feet
and sent to Alton for an officer. Deputy

Galveston, Jan. 31. Ex-President
Cloveland is now at tho residence of
Joseph Jeft'erson near Now Iberia, La.
Mr. L. Kaufman of this city was on tho
Biimo train with Mr. Cloveland and rode
with him from New Orleans to Now
Dr. Dyer of Galveston was also on tho
train and being acquainted with tho ex
president, the Galvestonians chatted
with him considerably during tho jour
ney. Mr. Kaufman says Mr. Cleveland
seemed to bo reticent and hail but littlo
to say, despite tho fact that ho was cor
dial and friendly in his manner. "Major
MeGinloy of Houston was also in tho
luirty," said Mr. Kaufman, "and ho in
sisted that Mr. Cloveland should visit'
Texas on his return to Now York. Mr.'
Cloveland, however, merely laughed and
did not say whether ho would do so or
not. I aliottid not be surprised to see
him in Galveston on bis way homo."

LiAMAit, Mo., Jan. 21. Yesterday af
ternoon a telegram camo from Kenoma,
a station seven miles east, on tho Kansas
City and Memphis railroad, announcing
that a woman had been killed thero and
requesting tho presence of an ollicer, but
giving no details of tho crime. City
Marshal Month and Constable Wilson
started through tho snow storm for
Kenoma. Arriving thero shortly after
7, thoy found it meat of tho name of
Robert Hepler under Wrest and strongly
guarded for tho committing of one of
tho most atrocious crimes known in
Hepler had been drinking during tho
day and about 4 o'clock went to tho
house of Mrs Goodly, murdered that.
lady and her youngest child, a boy about
G years old, and left for dead her daugh
ter, aged 9 years. Mrs. Goodly's head
w-as crushed with a heavy bottomed
chair, ono ami and her jaw being broken.
He assaulted the girl with a heavy iron
poker, striking her. as bo supposed, fata'
blows and left her lying across her
mother's prostrated form. Tho littlo boy
camo next and bis head was crushed to
a jelly.
Two of Mrs. Goodly's children wero
absent from homo at the time, and, re
turning shortly aftor, found the bodies
as above described, and, hearing some
ono in tho second story of tho house,
hastened to Kenoma, half a mile distant,
mid gavo tho alarm. Citizens wero soon
upon tho scene, but tho murderer hnd
tied, after rilling drawers and boxes up
stairs, going directly to his own home, a
short distanco from thoro. Tho littlo
girl showed signs of life and tho boy was
still breathing when help arrived. Tho
girl, upon recovering consciousness,
stated that Hepler had committed tho
deed, and an examination showed his
tracks Jeading jrom tho Goodly residence
to that of his own.
Hepler was captured aftor a desperate
stugglo and was brought to Lamar and
lodged in jail. Tho only motives known
for tho commission of the crime aro
those of robbery and rovengo, as Hepler
has mado threats ngamst the Goodly
family. Hepler is about !)4 years of ago
and has a wife and fivo children in des
titute circumstances. He denies his
guilt, and when accused of it used tho
most violent and profane language. Joo
Goodly, the husband and father, was
reached by a telegram at Choycuno
while on his way west with a car-load
of horses.
A telegram from Kenoma this
morning gives tho pleasing intelligence
that the littlo girl is improving rapidly
and has given an intelligent account of
the horrible a Hair, clearly fastening tho
crime upon Hepler.
This evening Hepler attempted suicido
in tho jail by banging himself with a
ropo made out of a blanket. He was
discovered by prisoners in tin adjoining
cell who gavo tho alarm, and he was cut
down, but not until he had grown black
in fthe face. Sheriff Garrett, fearing
that summary vengeanco would bo
visited upon Hepler took him to Nevada,

St. Louis, Jan. 21. A man named
Skinner, who resides at 221 South Leif
ingwell avenue, informed Captain Joyco
of tho Third district, that the head and
anus of a man wore visible, imbedded in
the ice of tho river, alwut 150 feet from
tho elevator at the foot of Biddlo street.
Tho man was found frozen solid in tho
ice. His head and arms wero held im
movable by largo cakes of ice and his
face and tho top of his head alone wero
visible looking directly to tho western
bank. Tho current had ovidently car
ried tho man's limbs from under him
when he broko through the ico, and in his
struggles ho had reached a reclining po
sition on tho left side. After a great deal
of labor, attended with no little danger,

ble to oxtricato himself. Tho ice at this
point is always treacherous, owing io
