nr THE NE-WS COMPANY. 1. II. IIUIUTOOn, IliulnfM Mmifr, 4Wll9(JttIPTI0X FIFTY CKNTS A MONTH. Waco, Texas, - - August 3, 1888. Cases of lovers killing girls because the girls wouldn't marry them, have been of daily occurence. This morn ing's telegarms vary the thing. It was a waman killed the man this time. Further reports of the trouble on the :5an Carlos Indian reservation show that the Indians have been stealing cattle and preparing a supply of dried .rnicat preparatory it is assumed to an outbreak of hostilities. When a party went to arrest thehostilss they opened fire and killed three Indians scouts. The posse retured the fire, wounding several of the ban d which immediately left the reservation, followed afterward J)y others, all going for the mountains. Hoboker is greatly excited just now "because of a story having become current in that New York suburb that a million and a half of Spanish doub loons lie burried somewhere in one of itsstreet. A man named Charles J. Clark says that he is the son of a buccaneer and that his father when dying told him about the hidded treasure. The money the story goes, was first buried in Mexico and then taken up and se credtly carried in a vessel to Nw York and up the Hudson to the point siamed in Hoboken. James P. Engle, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Arkansas, Js x plain farmer, as his father was be fore him. At twenty-three he was a soldier in the ranks and rose to be Lieutenant Colonel. At twenty-eight die was working to reclaim his Arkan sas farm, and five years later he went to college. His political life dates from the time he had reached forty, when he was elected to the Legisla ture. William Howell, of New York who at thirty-nine has won a fortune and is one of the acknowledged powers of Wall street, is spending a week or two at vtlantic City. Mr. Howell was a poor but very ambitious boy. He entered Philips Exeter Academy some years ago. For the first month he lived on sixteen cents a day his food dicing oztmeal and corn meal, with die toughest kind of beefsteak as a rare treat once a week. The second month he succeeded in getting fairly good day board in return for the care of a horse. At the end of this month he was still better off, for he found board and lodging for doing all the .add chores around house and thus he supported himself through Exeter. At Yale he earned his way by tutoring -and writing for papers. As for his social standing says the Philadelphia Times it is only neccessary to say that he is a member of the Skull and Bones Society the right to wear the badges of which is one of the most desired honors in college. His wealth to-day is estimated at $10,000,000. Election race troubles are beginning -again in Fort Bend county, Texas. Yesterday J. C. Shambling, a prominent-white citizen, was brutally as sassinated while sitting in his own house, and the following placard was found fastened on the gate leading to ihe house : "I am just from town and full of tiell in the neck for all misleaders. Mr. .Shambling, you have been holding a (democratic meeting with the negroes isnd you have said that any negro that does not vote the democratic ticket on election day is sticking a knife in your own child's side. The republicans have declared that no democrat shall be al lowed to hold any democratic meeting in private places among the ignorant race of negroes. It is said that Grand ma Harrison's pants won't fit Ben uie, but Bennie is going to wear them before the end of time. The republi- can party is going to hold up their heads if they die hard. We will have no democrats to lead the ignorant ne gro astray. You are the man to lead them astray, and cut their throats, and suck their blood, I am ., republican ind have no use for a democrat. This is a lesson to all cut-throat democrats to hold no more democratic meetings with the ignorant negro race of peo ple." The arrest of a negro, H. Caldwell, by name, was arrested and taken to Houston, barely kept from being dealt with by an infuirated mob. Stevens County, Kansas. Kansas is a great state to publish immigration literature, glowing with praises of the wealth of her great prairies and of her moral and God fearing people, but in the next bulle tins issued to the country she will hardly whoop Stevens county up to any great extent. That county is not a pleasant place for a quiet man to take his family. The people of Stevens county are go?d neighbors and all that, but have cccentrities that would annoy a peace-loving fellow. Some times in Kentucky families and neigh bors get a little at outs and run a list of disturbing vendetta but in Stevens county, Kansas, two towns have furnished a feud which makes it red hot for the rest of the county. Two years ago Woodsdale" and Hugaton were rivals for the county seat. Huga ton got it and a feud arose increasing in intensity ever since. The Woods dalers and Hugatoners look upon each other as natural enemies. It has been the practice for two years for the Hugatoners, when they caught a Woodsdaler out alone, to mop the ground up with him, and when a Woodsdale crowd could tree aHugaton when the Hugaton got home his wife ran for the arnica bottle and some one else for the doctor. A long course of mutual crimination, recrimination and scrimmages have resulted in a more intense feeling, and now when the two factions meet the arnica bot tle is unused and the doctor gets out his forceps or something and goes to probing for Winchester pills. It is the solemn conviction of the Hugatons that a Woodsdale man was made to shoot bullets into, and a Woodsdaler thinks a Hugaton never looks as handsome as when he lies with his toes turned up among the daisies. The effect has been very marked in reducing the population of Stevens county in the past two weeks, and as both towns have just received a new supply of Winchesters and fixed am munition it is likely to be still more diminished. With the present state of feeling in Kentucky both towns would be wiped out in twenty-four hours, but there seems to be a saving clause in the character of the Woods dalers and Hugatons which saves them from complete extermination. Either is willing and anxious to kill the other, but as a condition prece dent he must get the drop on him. All the killing that has been done, so far, has been assassination. It is the apprehension of this fact that keeps the govornor from rushing toops into Stevens ounty. When people insist on getting the drop before killing the slaughter never gets general, because the other parties keep away from the drop. But all the same, Stevens county is not an attractive place for a peace-loving immigrant, and Kansas wont whoop her up much in the next immigration documents. No Eloping Dla. With Hewter. Fort Worth, Aug, 2 Jeff Smith is a colored Gentleman. Hester Smith is his wife. Last evening Jeff with a lady not his wife proceeded to the depot with the apparent intention of leaving the city with the lady in his company But Mrs. Hester broke in upon the little proceeding and nipped it in the bud in a manner extremely unpleasant to all parties concerned. She found the eloping couple about to step on the cars and proceeded to do up the fair enslaver of her husband in a man ner not according to any known rules of prize fiRhting but in such a way as to frighten away the crowd that had gathered, who gave them the whole width of the platform. The unfaith ful Jeff appeared to think the whole performance quite the proper thing, for when Officers Fulford and PemDer ton stepped in to stop the row he blusteringly remonstrated with them for their interference; and the three were marched to the cooler.
