Hersfunt Scott find Hqund of Hanger drill Thrill Their Lender nr. rngnlrrd lit Fonce Cutters News reached San Antonio to-day from reliable sources Iliat about noon on Saturday a ntunlier of men came dropping Into Wael.lcr Inbunrliesof tlx In to, all of whom vfte armed with Winchesters. This continued until late In the evening, when theie were no less than loo mtn-in the town, all armed. It It supposed they came In ila a view to intimi date the i. (liceri of Gunnies county, and threats wctc made againat them. Mcnacis were alto made against Mr. II. L. Miller and Uncle John Wilton, one of the levllng stockmen of the country Far some time the men seemed to have, evertbing thcr own way, but it so happened that Ser geant Sett, of the rangers, with a squad of five men was in tie city; these he joined ti the men Mr. John Wtliuo had le t on his ranch to protect it. and ordered the newly er- ed incoinrrt to lay down their arms In the name of the li v. Vi ominojs silence took place and no one could tell whether the thunder cloud was going to hunt or the clouds pass away and the sun shine forth as usasl. At length, Iter some talk, the men Uid down their arms and withdrew lo n dt.tancc. Sergeant Scett at once had the tides all placed In a wagon and put a guird over ihcui. Thus, by a little ess'and good geueialshlp, all bloodshed was avoided I be saloons In lown were Inen ordered to close, and peace and quiet were maintained until the men began to leave fur their homes. Sergeant Scitt gave each man his rifle back before leaving Tor home. Some of the patties stated they only wanted to take precaution and guard themselves, as their fences had been cut, but the leaders were recognized as lerdicg fence cutters and their names are known. 'LEO ASTRAY.' MIsaHoae l:ytlnge Itat Kvenlun; A IVIn- ter' Tnle" To-Nlgtit. "Led Astray," In which nobody waa par- tlcuiaily led astray, was on the boarda laat evening at Turner hall. There was much talk and dialogue of precipices, temptations, 'leave me, for nature is weak," etc., but just who was led astray, not one of the audience to this moment can determine. The title of the play Is a misnomer and a misleader, and this is the most that can be said about it. If it had been .headed with the sensational and alliterative "Templed but Tough," the audience would have been better prepared lor the denouement. Of course Miss Rose Eylirge was the all observed of the actors. She is pretty, and womanly In her beauty, graceful and handsomely apparelled, tnl the play gave hir few chances to exhibit her splendid qualities and aspirations as a tragedienne. It in fact made her too domestic. She was obliged too fumble with embroidery, criti cise an oil painting and lose a step daughter, very lovable too, while her heart was racked with the pangs ol neglected love and soul de vouring jealousy. Rose Kyltnge is a cost summatc'artislc; tragic in her emotions and passionate In her love, and "Led Astray" does not afford her the opportunity to exhibit herself at her best or la the natural best of her vocation. This play is entirely too do mestic, too tame for an exhibit of that genius, which tliis country admits she possesses in an unusual degree ol perfection. We are not by any means complaining of her acting, but of the hail taste of a play like 'Led Aslray," which so cabins, cribs and confines a lady of her aspiring nature as to make her appear in the role rather of a timid soubrettc than that of a first-class trage dienne. As Armande Chardoce, she melted with her pathos,' where the play afforded her an opportunity, bringing many to the melting mood, yet her best wine was reserved for the last of the feast, seeing that the reconcilia tion scene, justbcfore the two Italians on the drop curtain fell to the floor with a calm behind them, ws the piece de resistance of the whole evening. Mr. Cyril Scarle, as.her husband Rudolph, was indeed a leading char acter. Ilia enunciation is perfect and his mastery of emotion la the duel scene was most pathetic. Matilda was personated by Miss Georgia Koowllon, in which she showed how the gid diest of young flit Is can sometimes make the best of selections In securing husbands. To-night "A Winter's Tale" will be pre sented, and as Ilermione, Miss Eytinge will have "broad acres and free" to exhibit her powers to their fullest beat. She Is worthy, her suppoit is worthy, and her theme Is de serving of an overflowing house. AN AROUSED TUBURB. A Uleotlus of the Cltlieiis of Son Juan rrotesllnc Aenluat the Defiling; of the Ulver. The people of San Juan held a mass-meet-log on Saturday afternoon, and entered a strong protest against the emptying of the city's sewers at the San Antonio river. About thirty of the prominent citizens of the local ity were In attendance. Captain KJ. ltraden was chosen Chairman.and Major A. Y. Wal ton, Secrctaiy. Fergus O'C. Robinson made the opening talk in which he claimed that the emptying of jthe city's oiTal Into the liver would render the river impute and germinate disease, particularly typhoid fever. It could not be any longer used by man or beast. The milk of the dairy cow drinking from Its filth would circulate and distribute fevers, lie opposed the movement warmly, as did also Captain Pnw and Major Walton In short, crisp speeches. Resolutions in ac cordance with these sentiments wire unani mously passed. One of them proposed as a last resort to invoke the aid ol the law against the propoied infringement. After appointing a committee of five to confer with the City Council and Issue an address to the citizens of Pan Anlonlo, the meeting adjourned till the lint Saturday after the election on the bonds for sewage. THE COURSE OF LOVE. Mr. r, flrlce, of tlio Mail Antonio l!,res, Is Married to Mian llonaal. Early this morning about 6 o'clock Mr. Kiank Grlce, managing editor of the San An tonio Espress, was united in bonds of holy matrimony to Miss llonssl, at the reiidenceof Mrs. Moore, corner of Avenue I) and Hous ton street. Dean Richardson, in full robes, performed the ceremony, during which Madame Ilallinl played the beautiful air, "Take this Ring," by Kellinl. After the mar liage was over the same lady played Mendels sohn's "Wedding Match." Among those present were Major and Mrs. Wilson and the two Miss Wilsons, Captain and Mrs. Miller, Mr. and Mrs. Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Ilosack, Mr. and Mrs. Groshen, Mrs. Norton and Mr. Mitchell, most of whom accompanied the bride and bridegroom to the Sunset depot, whither they started for New Orleans. That happiness and rrospcritybe attendant spirits on their journey through life Is the hearty ith of the San Antonio Liatir. TOTALLY DESTROYED. Sparka I'rom Sir. Kerber's 1'lpe Hut Fire to mid Dettroy III Stable end II r Over and ever again have loss ef life and destruction of property been caused by the dropping of a few spatka from a pipe or a lighted match on some combustible, yet will no one learn by experience. Yesterday Henry Kerber, Ilvisg in the Fourth ward, sauntered into his stable, where a great amount of hay was stored, with a lighted pipe In his mouth. In bending over to take some hay out, some sparks fell from his pipe and, lighting on the hay, immediately set the whole place on fire. Mr. Kerber too late saw the madness of carelessly smoking in such a place and attempted to put the fire out. la this, however, he signally failed, and in spite of the kind assistance rendered to him by his neighbors, the fife was not overcome until the stables were burnt to the ground and nearly all the hay destroyed. Even after the stables were ruined It was only by the united efforts of all present that the flames were prevented from spreading to the residence close by. A SUICIDE (laae Iuto the Hereafter l'reniaturely-. Tke Jury' Verdict. Justice Adam was telegraphed for on Satur day night to come up to Davenport station, on the International road, and hold an inquest. It looked at first mysterious, since the name ol the deceased was not given in the telegram nor any of the circumstances connected with the " stiff." Fred Bader, the Constable, tel egraphed and received la reply the sole infer nation that there was a man dead in that locality with a hole in his brain. Justice Adam started for the scene of the tragedy. Arriving there It was discovered that the name of the deceased was George Reiniger. a farmer of that vicinity, who leaves behind him, in th wake of his suicide, a wife and seven children. all boys. The inquest was held at the house of Mr. William Davenport at the Selma settle ment, on the Clbolo. After an examination of a few witnesses the verdict was rendered that George Reiniger came to his death by his own hands, inflicted by a pistol ball. PROBAJTECOURT.

A positive system, whether tree trade or not is neiier man an un certainty fer the business interests of the country. IN AN article regarding the business depres sion throughout Ihe United Slates, the Belton Journal says: "In this crisis, If crisis it Is, Texas seems to be favorably sttusted, and fence cutting of ceurse excepted, it offers fav orable inducements alike to the laboring man and the capitalist.

There is the Slate capltol aad the asylum at Terrell, In course of erec tion, to say nothing of additions, etc, to other public buildings. In addition to this aboat $1,500,000 of the school fund has been loaned to the counties, and they are using It to erect public buildings. Then each couaty has a school fund of its own which has been loaned out within the past six months. Perhaps not less than $500,000 has been thus distributed amongst the people. It wilt thus be seen that in addition to all of our receipts from our exports, about $2,000,000 of what has here tofore been idle money has been put into cir culation in Texas. Nor Is this all.
