- offioers, ia giving maoh space to the sharp
atiaoas on tne Jesuits, ana printing what
are alleged to be the secret instructions to
members of that order, charging them
with conspiring against the liberal gov
ernment everywhere. The bitter anti
clerical tone of El Combate is attracting
muoh attention, as it expresses the senti
ment of military leaders. The recent con
troversy regarding the oonduot of the
Emperor Maximillian at Queretaro has
eerved to bring the liberal and clerical
parties into a hostile attitude.
Military and politioal circles are greatly
exoited tonight over the result of
the duel which took place at
8 o'olock this morning in one of the bar
racks of this oity. The principals were

The question of General Lopez' con
duct at Queretaro and his relations to
Emporer Maximillian was the cause of the
duel. Some time ago Senor Gayon, who
was one of the officers of the Imperial
army nnder Maximillian, wrote a letter
in the newspapers denouncing Lopez as a
traitor, and asserting that Lopez1 oonduot
was well understood among officers of
General Ronhea replied in El Combate,
saying that some men were traitors to
their chief and others to their country,
but that did not prevent their taking of-
floe under the new regime.
Senor Gayon , who is personally a very
brave man, challenged General Rocha,
naming as his second,' General Pradilla, at
present governor of the palace, and Jus
tino Fernandez, the oelebrated lawyer.
General Rooha chose for his seconds,
General Naranjo (ex-secretary of war)
and Colonel Omano.
At the first shot exchanged, this morn
ing, Gayon fell back in the arms of his
second, his right breast pieroed by a
bullet, but he rallied and asked if the duel
could not go on, but the see
onus and surgeons attending re
fused permission. Late this after
noon Senor Gayon lies in a oritical con
dition . and is reported to be
dying. He is a man of 58
years of age, while General Rooha
is about 50. Gayon has a grown-up
General Rooha was a conspicuous figure
in the war against the empire, and his
-capturing of Tampioo by taotics similar to
those of General Grant at the Wilderness,
and his viotory at La Bufa, near the oity
of Zaoateoas, made him famous. He is
commonly known as ''the tiger," from his
- well known courage and his disposition to
take great risks in warfare. He is pro
prietor and editor-in-chief of El Combate,
previously mentioned as noted for its ag
gressive articles. It is generally believed
that this duel is only the begin
ning of a series of duels growing
out of the fued between the partisans of
the late empire and leading liberals.
It is rumored that President Diaz pre
vented a duel coming off between General
Rocha and General Aroe, governor of the

other important duel will be fought Wed

An Elderly Machinist Found Dead

Palestine, September 20. This morn
ing a boy, on coming op the eastern traok
of the International & Great Northern
railway, discovered on a bridge, a quarter
of a mile from the oity, the headless body
of John Trainer, formerly a maohinist in
the shops here, and latterly employed at
Dilley fc Sons' iron foundry. The head of
the man was found some distance from
the body, and the -body and legs were
jammed between the trestle.
There is a suspicion about the
manner of Trainer's death. Justice
Watts found the head bruised in such a
way that gives color to the theory of foul
play, Heightened by the fact that Train
er's pockets were turned inside out, and he
was known to have drawn f 90 yesterday.
Trainer was about 50 years old and is
said to have bad domestio trouble. It is
not known where his wife lives, but he re
ceived a letter backed in a woman's hand
two days ago, and yesterday got olearenoe
papers from the company, and announced
his intention of leaving town last night.
One theory is that he killed himself by
falling upon the track and deliberately
going to sleep on it.

Accident on a Man-of-War.
New Yobk, September 20. A Halifax
peoial says: The British war ship Belle-
ophon, carrying, the flag of Admiral
Lyon, and which was ordered to New
foundland fishing waters, has arrived
here and placed in the hospital the men
injured by the explosion of rockets while
in Quebec. The extent of this terrible
aocident was hushed up in Quebec It
happened under these oircumstanoes:
Governor General Lansdowne and suite
were at the old Frenoh capital on the even'
iug of September 10th. There was a grand
entertainment in .Lansdowne a honor on
the flag ship Bellerophon at night. The
iron clad was gorgeously illuminated with
eleotrio oil lamps and fire works and pre
sented the grandest sight ever witnessed
at hitorioal Quebec. At 9:30
as Lord Lansdowne and party were leav
ing for shore, some 600 men of the crew
were on the deck. Lhe yards were manned,
bands playing,and theri wo a grand finale
of explosions. A pile of sixty of the
most powerful rockets lay on the npper
deck. One of them, on being lighted, in
stead of going up, exploded on deok,
igniting the pile. The effect was tremen
dous. In a moment the death dealing
rookets were sweeping the deck in every
direotion, burning, lacerating and maim
ing the helpless men. Pieces were
flying up into the rigging and
yards and carrying havoo among
the poor fellows stationed there,
and the sticks were falling among the
crowds on shore, and on the French war
ships Minerva and Clarinde and other
vessels anchored in the harbor. The
Quebeo papers next day announced that
a midshipman and two men had been in
jured. The fact was that forty men had
been injured, thirteen of them, including
Midshipman Doulney, so seriously that
the Bellerophon had to leave Quebeo,
and, instead of going to Newfoundland as
ordered, she came to Halifax to place the
men in the naval hospital. They are
terribly burned and laoerated. Some have
the fleshy parts of their thighs and legs
blown off; others have the muscles of their
The Woolfolk Murder.
Atlanta, Ua , September 20. The an
nouncement was made here to-day that
the real murderer of the Woolfolk family
had been arrested. His name is Jack De

associated with others in the commission
of the murder. He had been convicted
upon the testimony of some of the Wool
folks of stealing, and was sent to the
chain gctog. It was to avenge himself for
this that he murdered the whole family.
It is probable that Tom Woolfolk, who ia
under arrest, accused of the murder, will
be released at once.

Fobt Wobth, September 20. The east
bound Texas t Paoifio was robbed to
night near Benbrook, at the . trestle over
Mar's creek, where the same train was
robbed In June. The circumstances are
very similar to those of the last robbery.
Just as the rrain pulled out from the
station two men got into the cab of the
looomotive and covered Engineer Baker
with six shooters, and he was ordered
to stop. When ordered, and when the
looomotive had crossed the trestle,
Baker stopped the train. Two
men were waiting here, and the en
gineer and fireman were 'ordered out of
the cab and marched toward the express
car, and to guard the doors of the oar
they were closed, and one of the men,
a tall, slim, sandy-haired fellow, sung
"Open np that oar!"
Express Messenger Malony paid no at
tention to the order, when, after waiting a
few seoonds, a hammer of some kind was
brought and the door was pounded un
mercifully. About the same time some
ten shots were fire into the Pacific ex
press oar, and then the pounding began
again. At last the door was opened and
one of the robbers jumped in with a drawn
pistol and demanded the money. Malony
had hidden a considerable number of the
packages, and the remainder were taken
from the safe, and ordering Malony to
keep quiet, the robbers jumped out and
the mail oar was entered, but without any
shots being fired. Male Agent Griffin
ana Assistant Btewart were com
pelled to gtve np the registered
packages, and it is said that nearly all the
registered matter was taken. There
no otlort made to rob the passengers,
many of whom were considerably fright
ened. 1 here were one or two armed men
in the coaches who proposed to defend
the passengers, should the robbers at
tempt to enter. After finishing their work
at the mail oar, the robbers escorted the
engineer and fireman back to the looomo
tive and ordered the train to be pulled
out. Lhe four men moved away some
distance, watched the train for a short
time and walked away. The train reaohed
Fort Worth at 8:30, and the officers
were at onoe notified, and two posses, one
headed by the sheriff and the other by the
oity marshal, were on the road to the
soene of the robbery. The amount stolen
is variously estimated from $1,200 to $30,.
000, but noither the mail men or the Paoi
fio express men will say anything about
the matter at all. The theory of the offl
oars is that the same men who committed
the robbery in June were engaged in that
of to-night, but this is the purest con

Fobt Wobth, September 20. Officers
on a looomotive drawing a box oar with
their horses went out to the soene of the
robbery taking Sheriff Shipp's two blood
hounds. The looomotive has returned
and the engineer reports that the dogs
took up a trail to the south and the ofBoers
are following. Farmer's near the plaoe
say that three men on horseback
were oamped near the plaoe all day,
leaving for the depot just before the
train came in. They were armed with
both Winchesters and pistols. They ate
supper with some campers only a few
hundred yards from Benbrook. The
sheriffs of oounties adjoining Tarrant
have been notified by wire, and a descrip
tion of the men, as far as possible, given
to them. It is said the express aompany
will offer a reward for the capture of the
robbers. It is now said the express lost
everything, and the run was heavy.

Bbtjeooebhoff, September 20. A fight
is reported to have taken plaoe late yes
terday evening between a posse of citi
zens nnder Deputy Sheriff Abe Anderson
and two outlaws near Leander.
as gathered from the report by your cor
respondent, are as follows: Two men
traveling north crossed the Colorado river
yesterday, about 11 o'clock a. m., at what
is known as the Anderson bend. The
crossing was effected in a boat maned by
a farmer in that locality. It was neces
sary to take one of the men over at a
time. The first one crossing had been
safely landed and the boat returning for
the other, when Mr. Ga. L-jman ap
proached. As soon as seen by
the remaining party that gentle
man hurried to hi horse, and
then turned, facing Mr. Loman, asked:
" hat do you want? Do yon want to
Mr Loman replied: "I don't know but
that I niijfht."
The nonchalant conduct of Mi. Loman
seemed to compose the man who had
shown himself suspicious of Mr. Loman'
presence. The crowing proceeded, and
when both wera landed nn a nf fha mnn
asked what the charge was. The farmer
told him one dollar. He replied "that is
too muoh." The other man said :
"John, that is reasonable. If yon won't
pay it I will."
SAW A PISTOL.
The gentleman aoting as ferryman saw
that one of the men was armed with a
pistol, and, informing Mr. Loman, that
gentleman prooeeded at onoe to notify
Deputy Abe Anderson, who, after the
elapse of some hours, succeeded in raising
a poese of citizens, and went in pursuit of
the suspects, who were heading for Le
ander. THE TBAIL
of the two men were suoh as to oonfirm
the suspicion of Mr. Loman that they
were not oorreot. Eaoh of the two riders
would travel on opposite sides of the road,
Whioh passes through a ragged, mountain
ous country, and at intervals they would
change sides, both crossing the road eaoh
time at the same place, thus endeavoring
to confuse their pursuers should there be
such endeavoring to follow them. At the
the two men stopped and obtained a
supply of bread. Here they said they
wanted to teaoh Leander and have their
horses shod. Mr. Loman, who oarried a
Winchester, and another member of the
posse who was armed with a six-shooter,
were soon fome distance in advanoe of the
others. Approaching the prairie south
west of Leander and abont two miles from
that plaoe, they observed the trail of the
two men turning off the road. It was now
sundown, and evidently the two men had
turned aside to oamp or wait for the com
ing darkness to resume their travel.
LOCATING THE GAME.
Mr. Loman and his companion, anxious
to locate their game, if possible, before
dark, did not wait for the balanoe of the
posse, but prooeeded to follow the trail
from where it turned off the road. When
some distanoe from the road they disoov
of the two men. It was notioed that one
of the men in the oamp was restless, and
moved about in a somewhat nervous man
ner. Turning into the brush, Mr. Loman
and his companion prooeeded cautiously
K) their approaoh. The man moving
about in the oamp saw them, and as soon
as he saw he was Bighted by the man, Mr
Loman rushed upon him, at the same time
oalling to him to throw up his hands.
This was responded to by a rapid suc
cession .of pistol shots, Mr. Loman and
his companion returning the fire. The
battle was brief, and the outlaws,
abandoning everything in camp.
made double-quick time to a thioket

ran round the thioket to interoept further

were getting away with their horses, re.
turned to the oamp. The outlaws thus
were enabled to make good their escape,

It sesms the rangers have bean on the

day struck a fresh trail on the Colorado
river, and followed it in a northerly di
rection through the Colorado mountains
to within a few miles of Leander, where
the outlaw band stopped to rest their
hordes in a dense thicket and were sur
prised by the rangers, with the above re
sult. It is supposed they were led by the
notorious John Barbour, and were on their
way to Florence, his former home, doubt
lesB to procure fresh horses and supplies
trom their people.
The rangers are in hot pursuit of the
robbers to-day, and will likely overhaul
them before many hours. In case they

upon them about three miles west of this
place, and, by the convincing arguments
of Winchesters and pistols, induoed them
to abandon their horses, saddles, can' eens,

owing to the brush whioh surrounded the

Russell, 363. Lovering was unanimously
deolared the nominee.
Wobcesteb, September 20. Hon. E.
Avery reported the following platform:
First The democrats of Massachusetts,
in convention assembled, congratulate
their fellow countrymen that nnder the
administration of a demooratio president,
peace, oonoord and fraternity have been
restored and prevail throughout the land;
that the rights of every oitizen nnder the
national laws are sacredly maintained
without regard to raoe, creed or oolorj
that an economical, honest and wise finan
cial polioy has advanoed the credit of the
oountry at home and abroad, and not
withstanding the accumulation in the
national treasury of a vast surplus rev
enue, has thus far warded off a financial
orisis; that millions of aorei of the
publio lands recklessly granted to cor
porate monopolies have been restored to
the people; that the constitution and the
nation have again become the pride of
every Amerioan, and recognized as the
sources of individual liberty and national
progress,- prosperity and honor; and
finally that we are blessed in having a
national president who knows no north,
no south, no east, no west, but disohargos
the duties of his exalted station in striot
conformity to the constitution and laws,
and with unswerving fidelity to his con
viction of what is right and for the beet
interests of the whole people.
Seoond Aa democrats we return our
thanks to the president for his adherence
to the promises and pledges made on his
behalf before the election, for his fidelity
to the principles enunoiated by the con
vention that plaoed him in nomination,
and for demonstrating the wisdom of
those principles when applied to the prao
tioal administration of the government.
As citizens we give him onr thanks for an
honest and economical administration,
national in spirit, strong and vigorous in
action, in fine, an administration whioh
has enhanoed the honor and dignity of the
nation, renewed our faith in the capacity
of a free people for self-government, and
added new lustre to the name of Ameri
oan citizens. As democrats and oitizens
we pledge to him and to his administra
tion our unqualified support.
Third It being an nnquestloned prin
ciple that the business of the government
should be oonduoted with the same care as
personal business matter?, therefore we
believe that no business can be suooess
fully carried on unless the is engaged in
its proseoution act in harmony. We be
lieve that no business man would employ
or retain in his employ any person who
was known to be in the interest of a rival,
who depreciated bis business oapaoity,
undermined his credit or disclosed his
secrets. We believe no administration of
the government can be successful unless
those who are entrusted with the execu
tion of its affairs are interested in its suo
oess, approve of its polioy and believe in
its principles. We believe all the impor
tant ollioes in the civil servioe should
be filled by competent persons in politioal
sympathy with the administration; that
all other offices, not representative in
oharaoter, should be filled by persons
seleoted for their fitness, oapaoity and in
tegrity; that the disposing of patronace
should neither be a tax on the time of our
publio men, nor the instrument of their
ambition. We believe that no offioer
should be retained in the publio servioe
who has shown himself an offensive par i
san, and we think a sense of propriety to
the administration, of whioh they are a
part, requires the formal officeholders
representing the administration in this
state, to discharge from the publio servioe
any of their subordinates against whom
charges of offensive partisanship can be
Fourth We believe that the power of
congress to tax the people is limited by
the constitution to the requirements of
the government; that any system of taxa
tion whioh prod noes a revenue beyond
that is unwise and dangerous. It throws
unnecessary burdens on the people and'
enhances the cost of living. It encour
ages needless and extravagant appropria
tions by congress, and by withdrawing
from general circulation money that
should be aotively employed, and embar
rasses trade and may be the cause of a
disastrous financial crisis. We do not
advocate free trade, but favor any revis
ion of the present unjust and burdensome
tariff laws. We heartily approve of the
following reoommendation of the prei
dent: The increasing and unnecessary
surplus should be released to the people
by an amendment to our revenue laws,
which shall cheapen the price of the nec
essaries of life, and give free entranoe to
such imported materials as may be man
ufactured into marketable commodities."
We believe the income derived by the
government from the internal revenue
tax should be applied to disoharge th
burdens imposed on the people by the
Fifth We cordially approve of those
acts of congress which forbid the im
portation of contract labor and require
the return of all disreputable, vicious and
criminal persons, bnt w welcom the

The Times says:
Bonds are suffering as muoh as stooks;
no bids oan be had for anything. The
banks are throwing everything but old
jilt-edge securities out of the lists of
collateral on whioh they are willing to
make loans. Merohants are suffering
quite as badly as are the people directly
engaged in Wall street trading. The
banks are unable, or unwilling as the oase
may be, to provide any suoh accommoda
tions as the needs of oommeroial trade
call for, and this ia obliging lots of mer
ohants to open their strong boxes
and go to Wall street seeking a mar
ket for dividend-paying stooks and
gilt edged bonds that have been laid aside
as sure inoome providers these many
years, but in some boxes there are other
things than the old gilt edged parchments,
and visits to Wall.atreet are quite often
to try to sell tht stock or bonds of some
oompany hardly yet pushed forward to a
safe and solid footing among Investments.
The effort astonishes them. Things for
whioh they have paid good money, and in
whose value they have an absolute confi
dence, are discussed as unmarketable jut
most any prioe. "Tight money" is the
only explanation they are accorded.
With all this light money talk, however,
there is a good deal more soare than
reality. More people are nervous than
are hurt. 1 he world is not going to end
right away. Cool headed owners of se
curities, having seen quotations drop so
far, are hardly likely to rush at a gallop
now to unload at the bottom.
A Notorious Desperado.
Fobt Smith, Beptember 20. Seeke Proo
ta, the notorious Cherokee desperado, was
brought in to-day for murder and lodged
in the United States jail. He was a ring
leader among a band of murderers living
in the Snake dletriot, and was at the head
of the Indians in the bloody battle with i
deputy marshals fifteen years ago, but I
was suoh a dangerous oharaoter that Pres
ident Grant granted bis amnesty on con
dition that he woold remain peaceable.
Proota counts his murders by the score,
and is charged with seven that he has been
indioted for. He is one of the toughest
desperadoes in the territory. His latest
killing, the one for whioh be was brought
here to-day, was that of a tenant on bis
farm, whose name is uo known.
