Great GLOBE Offer on the Sixth Page. VOL. XV. A BLOODY MASSACRE. frue Story of the Alleged Mexican Revolution. IVOMEN AND CHILDREN KILLED In Cold Blood by Brutal Gov- eminent Soldiers. YOUNG GIRLS WERE ASSAULTED And Every Indignity Heaped on the Defenseless. ALL ON ACCOUNT OF RELIGION. Chicago, Dec. 27.— Juan S. Hart, of El Paso, Tex., editor of the El Paso Times, which has been proscribed b%* the Mexican authorities because of news regarding the Chihuahua revolution which had appeared in its colums, is in Chicago, and in au interview with an Associated Press reporter today gave the causes of and the developments thus far of the revolution now in progress in Chihuahua. "The number of revolutionists," said Mr. Hart, "is smail. there not having been over 130 in the field at any time. but they have fought fiercely, and gov ernment troops have so far suffered to the number of 600 soldiers and thirty oflicers. while ninety of the revolution ists and ninety-four of their women and children have so far met death at the hands of the soldiers. The general im pression that the revolution is a contin uation of the border trouble along the Rio Grande, which was led by Garza, is incorrect. The beginning of the pres ent outbreak took place about two years ago in the central parr, of the state. At the little village of Tomochio, in the fall of 1891; the villagers, who were ail Catholics, DESIRED TO CELEBKATE a certain saint's day by carrying the image of their saint from their church to the mountains near by, whe» a day 01 religious festivity was to be spent. They knew that such an act was a vio lation of the laws of Mexico, and that by paying a fine permits for such cele bratiou could be secured. '1 hey went to the town authorities.called the presi dent, who refused the permit. A meet ing of the villagers was held. The president was informed that the cele bration would be held despite his re fusal, and the festivities took place. The resident became alarmed aud no tified the conductor of the monthly bullion train, theu en route from the mining camps, that the men of Tomo chio had revolted and were likely to rob the train. Officials of the city of Guer rero, with an escort of soldiery, imme diately set out for Tomochio. The vil lagers heard of the approach of the gov ernment forces, aud the men left for the mountains, leaving the women and children at home. The latter barred the doors of their houses, but the sol diers fired through the walls, killing two small children and an old mau. And the judge of letters, who was with the party, was charged with outraging A maiden. "After a few* days in the village, the forces returned to G uerrero, and the Tomocuios came back from the mount ains. They buried their dead with oaths of vengeance, and thus began the revolution. What money they had was invested in Winchesters and ammuni tion, and for months they awaited re venge. President Diaz, after a time, declared them rebels, and sent troops on an errand of extermination. At the first encounter there were but thirty eight Tomochioans in the field, and the federal troops numbered over a hun dred. In the encounter which followed, twenty-tour soldiers and four officers were killed, while the villagers escaped without a wound. "Then on Sept 2 of last year Gen. Eangel, s-itli GOO soldiers, appeared be fore the little village. In the engage ment. 100 men and 9 officers fell in the federal ranks, and but one Tomochioan was wounded. Hostilities ceased for a time, but in November of that year Gen. Hernandez, who is still fighting with the remnants of Tomochians. aided by Gen. Corres and his Pima Indians of Sonora. the former commanding over a thousand men and two Gatling guns, succeeded in an engagement of TEN days AM) nights in nearly exterminating the revolution ists. The latter had reinforced them selves to the number of 103, and but 12 or 14 escaped on the eighth night of the fight. The others were killed, but not until they had almost annihilated one regiment of the Mexican mfautry and strewn the bodies of the soldiers so thickly on the ground that no effort was made to bury them. On the tenth day the victorious soldiers entered the vii- Itge and commanded the women and children, who had locked themselves in a church, to surrender. Upon their re fusal, the walls were tumbled in upon their heads, and ninety-four defenseless villagers died in the ruins. It was a massacre in every sense— bloody, brutal and unpardonable. '•News cf the various engagements has been suppressed by the Mexican government, and stories cf the battles emphatically denied. The suppression of news has. I think, been aided by offi cials of railroads in that vicinity, who feared that travel would be lessened by Btories of the war. There is no reason why this should be the case, however, as the scene of the revolution is remote from all railroad lines. The revolution is now practically wiped out. and It is probable that little more will be heard of it. The men are undoubtedly re ligious fanatic;, or they would not have attempted war under such uneven con ditions, but they have fought bravely and well, with the fierceness of despair, and have caused Mexico no little con cern, despite the numerous and sweep ing denials of that government" Fed Two Thousand. Denver, Dec. 27.— Parson Usell to eay gave a holiday dinner to the poor children of the city at his Blake street tabernacle.. 7 He served 100 turkeys, 1.000 rabbits and several hundred chick ens. Nearly 2,000 children enjoyed the least. Many of ,'ae leading citizens i actedl as ushers, carvers and waiters. The First Regiment band furnished the music, and the dinner was a big suc cess. INSULTED THE LADIES. Editor Stead Uses Hard Language to the Ladies' , Club. Chicago. Dec. 27. — Editor W. T. Stead created a sensation at the joint women's clubs of the city at recital hall this afternoon. The meeting was called by the Chicago Woman's club to confer upon plans to add the suffering poor women aud children of the city. Dr. Sarah Dackett Stevenson presided, and the hall was rilled with representatives of all the leading women's clubs in the city. Mr. Stead, who had been invited to address the meeting, said he chiefly wel comed the opportunity because sitting side by side with those active workers before him were some of the most dis reputable people in Chicago. Nothing was more obnoxious to any one who paid any attention to the teaching of the gospel than the fact that the conven tional judgment about reputable and disreputable was quite foreign to the : Christian ideal. Who were the most disreputable women in Chicago? They were those who had been dowered by society and Providence with all the gifts and all the opportunities, and who lived entirely self-indulgent. These women who had great opportuni ties, only to neglect them, were more disreputable in the eves of God and man than the most abandoned woman of the streets. Mr. Stead's actual language was something stronger than that quoted above. After Mr. Stead's j speech he retired from the meeting, and the women went into executive session iv a discussion of his remarks, exclud ing the press representatives. Many of j the ladies present were exceedingly wrathful over tne editor's remarks, and the meeting after Mr. Stead withdrew was very stormy. Nothing was done, however, and no resolution concerning Mr. Stead's remarks was adopted. After the meeting many of the women de clared that under no circumstances would they again attend a meeting at Which the Englishman was present. MADE A SENSATION. Defendant in a Trial Calls a Wit ness Down. Jackson*. Term., Dec. 27.— 1n the Howard trial today F. M. Runnel's, of the Memphis Avalanche, testi fied he was on the reportorial staff of the Appeal-Avalanche: said he never met the defendant before he came in the editorial rooms of the Appeal-Ava lanche. Witness said he was intro duced to Dr. Howard with the instruc tions to interview him: said Howard told him he knew William Lord Moore well; said they lived in the same neigh borhood in London, and were mutual friends, and had often played checkers together. At this stage of the evidence delendant called witness a liar. "Stop," said Judge Hammond, rap ping with his gavel. '-That, sir, is a contempt of court and, punishable uy. imprisonment, and I would order you to jail at once If it did not stop this trial." Howard arose and said there was a time wheu human nature could stand no more. This created a profound sen sation. Witness was then told to pro ceed. Said defendant gave a descrip tion of William Lord Moore entirely different from what defendant's wit nesses gave of William Lord Moore. The government closed their rebuttal testimony this afternoon, and the argu ment will co.um.-uce in the morning. FIGHT FOil A FORTUNE. Mast Heirs Claim a Portion ofthe City of Baltimore. Kittaning, Pa., Dec. since the publication of the account of the fortune in Baltimore real estate that is claimed by the Mast heirs it lias been learned that they derive their title, not from Stephen Mast, as stated, but from John Reese. This will probably explain why President W. H. Isaac, of the Maryland Title Insurance and Trust company, was unable to find any trace of the 2SO-acre tract on the rec ords In the Baltimore courts, as a dispatch from that city states. Reese was the owner of the tract and died without issue. The ninety-nine year leases made by him are now ex piring, aud ejectment suits will test the titles. At Reese's death the title to the land was inherited by his sister. She was the grandmother of Dr. Slaugen haupt, of East Brady, Pa., and it is through her that he aud others in this part of the state are endeavoring to establish a right to the property, which is now valued at §100,000,000. Hon. George A. Jenks is attorney ior the claimants. Still Maintains His Innocence. B akdstown. Ky., Dec. 27. — Phil Evans, the condemned rapist, who is to hang on Jan. 5, still maintains his inno cence.

Jailer Roby watches his prisoner closely.aud escape is impossible. Will Probably Go Free. Denver, Dec. James P. Hadley, ex-city treasurer, recently Drought back from California to answer to charges of forgery, will probably go free. All the forgery charges were nolle-prosequied at the last term of court, and the charge of embezzlement dismissed. The only charge remaining is misdemeanor, and that will probably be dropped.

Chicago, Dec. 27.— A special meeting of the Associated Press was-Tield in this city today, at which the proposal to in crease the capital stock from $30,000 to 5100,000 was formally approved.

Dec. 27.— Amer ican schooner Grace Andrews, com manded by Capt. Andrews, lias arrived here from Brazil. Capt. Andrews tells the following story: **" %•=»?? "i arrived at Rio de Janeiro April 12 last," said the captain, "from America, and in June left for Angra dcs Reis. On Sept. 5 1 went to Rio to attend to some of the ship's business. I arrived there in the evening and started to the home of L. S. An drews, my brother, who is in business there. I was halted by Peixoto's soldiers and held captive that night, but managed early next morning to get a hotel. Two days later 1 started back for San Goncolo. where my. vessel was. and on reaching there i was informed by my consignee that owing to the revolution we would be held back from loading our cargo, and it would be necessary for me to return to Rio and cancel the charter. 1 started back for Rio in my ship's small boat. 1 took with me an interpreter, a Portu guese saiioi. and two colored sea men. When we were within hail ing distance of a small boat, the name of which I cannot remember, 1 saw hundreds of soldiers running toward the beach, ail centering at the point we had to pass. 1 hoisted the American flag, but they shouted in Spanish what my interpreter said was. '•It you don't stop we will shoot you." The soldiers thought we were trying to get away, so they fired several shots at us. 1 then hauled the boat around and drove her upon the beach among them, and they sprang into the water after us and placed us under arrest. They hauled down the American flag and placed us in a prison for several hours. 1 was then at Rio de Jaueiro, while my men were held at Santa Cruz. After reaching there I was ? taken before the chief of police, who committed me to prison without any food, I protested against the treatment and begged for some thing to eat. and finally I was sent out in charge of a de tective to procure something. When 1 got the detective clear of the prison 1 forced him to permit me to see the American consul. We reached Mr. Towne's office, and when i explained to him. the unjust manner in which 1 and my men had been treated, he accompanied me back to the chief official's office and after some ar gument i was released, i made a long report to the consul about the treatment of us, and the pulling down of our flag, but he paid no attention to it. ' "He is no American." continued the skipper. "Several American vessels have been pierced by stray shots from Mello's forces, which are growing in strength rapidly." Capt. Andrews says he was surprised at the accounts of the revolution, as they appeared in the American papers, and claims the actual facts are sup pressed by the Brazilian officials.

A. The organization here has a membership estimated at 108. The first move of the society which came to the notice of the public -was a. demand on the sheriff to discharge his deputies, who were Catholics. The sheriff refused to comply with the re quest, and the matter for a time was the topic of conversation. A few days ago the Herald published an extract from a state exchange,- showing the A.' P. A. up in an unfavorable light, and the following day H. J. Miller, ; the editor, received au anonymous letter, warning him that "unless he and his foreman, C. J.

JAcKsoxviLLE,Fla.,Dec. Charles Mitchell, boxing champion of England, arrived in this city this, morning at 11 o'clock by the Florida & Peninsular train from the East An hour before the train arrived there were probably 1.000 people at the depot. The crowd increased until when Mitchell's train arrived it was simply enormous. Wheu M'tchell alighted a shout of welcome we it up. and the English champion had t j fight his way through a boisterous, j >stling mass of curiosity-loving human ity to a carriage. When the carriage was driven to the Everett hotel. Upon M . ibell'a arrival at the hotel, the cr vii had massed around the entrance uutil passage through the door was al most impossible. Several big police men finally cleared a passage and man aged to get Mitchell to his room. Here he was seen by a reporter for the South ern Associated Press, who asked Mitch ell if he hadj noticed a recent publica tion crediting William A. Brady with still believing that he (.Mitchell) would yet fail to appear. "Yes." said Mitchell, "I have seen them: but they do not worry me. Ev erybody who knows Mr. Brady knows that be is a little man, and liable to say anything. I will give him credit for one thing, however, and that is being snrewd enough to become the manager of a fighter like Corbett. There is some thing belter in that than pasting bills in a window in advance of a show. As far as Corbett goes he is a clever fighter, but considering that he has a man like Brady, that lets him out." "Have you any fears," asked the re porter, "that this man John Norris. of Springfield, 0.. who sa\s he will be here to prosecute you on a claim for •5200 for detective services in Mississippi, will show un?" "Not the slightest." answered Mitch ell. "That fellow is .absolutely no good. He knows full well that i never hired him, and owe him nothing. Why, 1 never saw him until after the Sullivan- Kiirain fight, and, as he is a cripple. 1 would have hardly been likely to hire him to protect me. The -truth of the matter is that he first tried it for black mail, and finding that would not work, now keeps it up for newspaper no- ; toriety."' "What is your weight?" "On last "Monday ■ 1 weighed 183 pounds. 1 have very little flesh to get off, having been training pretty hard." "What do you think of Corbett's dis belief of your sincerity regarding the match'?" "That is a piece of Brady's tain:. Cor bett knows that I make all of my matches myself, and handle my own business affairs,' and that i am the one who has insisted on the matter. As far as chasing the dollar goes, Corbett has the tirst one he ever made, and he will have it when he dies'" Mitchell is looking in the very pink of condition, his skin being clear, his eye bright, and every movement suggestive of muscular power. In the party are Mitchell, Jack Fogarty, his sparring parti Harry Darrfn, his running mate; his cook aud her husband. The English champion expresses himself pleased with his brief experience of Florida's winter climate. Brady, who manages Corbett, is talking too much in the opinion of the Duval Athletic club. The members are mad about it, for they say what he has said prejudices the governor against them and against the contest. Brady has been interviewed today, and especially on his recent trip to New York. To tlio interviewers he has said that the con test was sure to come off; in fact, that he has received private advices to that effect. Anybody can see that if what Brady says is so. Florida has authorities unworthy of the office they hold. The mere statement is a reflection upon the governor. In fact, it indicates that he is not genuine in his avowed opposition to the contest, and the same may be said of all other authorities who have anything to d_o with its pre vention. That is the "reason the Duval club is mad, and the reason why they say that Brady has* been talking too much. In an interview on the subject this morning J. E. T. Bowden, the man ager of the club, said: "Yes. i see that William A. Brady, Corbett's manager, is credited with the statement that he has received private dispatches from Florida to the effect that the fight would not be interfered with. Such expressions on his part, in my mind, tend to prejudice those in au thority against the contest. 1 have al ready stated time and again that the governor would do all in his power to stop the contest as long as he is con vinced that there is any law to stop contests of this kind: but, as 1 have said before, the courts will' determine the matter." "When?" "This week," replied Bowden. "I will also add that Mr. Brady's atti tude in talking so much tends to make me a little suspicious as to his . good Intentions. He has not received one word from this office or any one con nected with the Duval Athletic club who is familiar with the ins and outs of the office on the line of his expression." Bat Masterson. the Denver sporting man, is in the city, a guest at the Ever ett Mr. Masterson is known the length and breadth of this country. He is a great admirer of the English champion, and. if all one hears is true, he is going to put some Colorado silver ou his favor ite. He has a great record as a grave yard tiller in Colorado, and those who attended the Sullivan-Kilrain fight at Richburg. Miss., will recall how he pre vented a gang of toughs from running things their own way? Mitchell gave an exhibition tonight to an immense audience at the opera house. At the conclusion of the English man's bout with Fogarty there were loud calls for a speech, and Mitchell stepped to the footlights and said: "Ladies and Gentlemen: I thank you for the more thau kind reception ex tended to me. You ail see that i have turned up on time, and. nothing outside preventing, I shall meet James J. Cor bett in the ring on the "appointed date. "Although I may fail to surprise you to jnight, I hope to do so on that occasion."

The Northern Pacific conference com mittee met to consult together at Labor hall at 3:25 yesterday, and continued in session until ip. in. Nothing new was learned at the company's offices, and General Manager Kendrick, wheu seen yesterday afternoon, had received no notice from the conference committee as to whether the men would accept the company's ultimatum or not. Mr. Johnston, of the committee, who is spokesman for the men, was seen at the Windsor last night. He said: "The only thing done by the confer ence committee was to instruct a sub committee to call on Receiver Oakes this afternoon. We wanted to get an expression from Mr. Oakes on the order from the court, and the annulling of schedules, as to whether General Man ager Kendrick had auy authority to act as^he did, and also whether he voiced the sentiments of the receivers. Mr. Oakes was not found. The subcommit tee wiil wait on him tomorrow morning and theu report to the committee of the whole. The men have not given up the fight by any means, and they feel rather sore that they were uot notified that the courts had ordered the schedules put into effect. The men feel that their grievances are now a matter between the receivers and the court to settle. When we came here it was to fight this matter out to the end. 7.77 .

If they do strike, he says, there will be no trouble in filling their places. Scores of applications for positions have been received from railway men all over the country. Railway men are beginning to gather at Paui now.- hoping that a strike will cause vacancies on the road which they can fill. Mr. Payne declined to express any opinion on the conten tion of the men that it was with bad grace that the receivers ordered the cut after applying for a yearly salary of $15,000 apiece. CATCH LINES Suggested by Competitors for the Prize.

He announces in another circular the result of his efforts. He received 1.876 suggestions from the various agents of the system. He says: "Up to date no one "catch line' sub mitted seems to fill the bill to my com plete satisfaction, but a number of ideas have been received which are worthy of praise and some recognition.

MOVE TO GET HOSKINS OUT. FRIENDS OF THE EDITOR BELIEVE, HIM TO BE SANE. ST. PAUL LAWYER SECURED Frank Hoskins, Proprietor of tho Hennin<; Alliance Advocate, Committed to the Insane Asy lum on a Queer Report of Two Examining Physicians — Movg to Habeas Corpus Him. Friends of Frank Hoskins, who was recently committed to the insane asylum at Fergus Falls, have retained Attorney Henry Johns, of this city, and applica tion will be made at an early date for a writ of habeas corpus for the purpose of securing Hoskins' release from the asy lum. The attorney and the friends of Hoskins claim that he is far from in sane, aud intend to have the matter fully investigated before the courts. Hoskins, who is the proprietor and publisher of the Alliance Advocate, a paper published at Helming, Otter Tail county, was brought before Judge Bur bank, of the probate court of Otter Tail county, at Fergus Falls, on information filed by R. H. Marden, on Dec. 14. The hearing was set for Dec. IS, and A. B. Cole aud George C. Buchanan, two phy sicians, were appointed by the judge to examine Hoskins as provided by law. A certified copy of their report to the probate judge made on Dec. 21 was pre sented to the attorney retained in tho case yesterday, and the leading ques* tions and answers on which the physi cians recommended the commitment of Hoskins as an insane person are given below: ■ ■..,■■. Q. When were the first symptoms of this attack manifested, and iv what way? A. Violence and unreasonable actions in court. Q. Does the disease appear to be in* creasing, decreasing or statiouarv? A. Yes. Q. On what subject or in what way is derangement now manifested? Slate fully. A. Delusions as to being persecuted by moneyed corporations and the author ities. Q. Has the patient shown any dis position to injure others? A. At one time, in ordering a person to not enter his office, he picked up a heavy cane. Q. What is supposed to be the cause the disease? A. Overwork, over-excitement, and mind continually running in one groove. Q. Facts learned on personal ex amination (mention every appearance or condition of the patient bearing on the question of the existing Insanity). A. Elevation of temperature, trem bling of tongue, tremor of hands, con traction of eyebrows, incoherent talk, using long, disconnected ideas, illogical, strained and unreasonable ideas. As a result of the examination we find that Hoskins is insane and a proper person for care and treatment in a hospital for the insane. Q. The patient said (here state what the patient said to either or both ex aminers). A. That the banks for their own per sonal gain coerced Court Commissioner Marden and Assistant County Attorney* Corlies in making an unjust and un necessary charge of insanity against •"film? That he filed a complaint and still believes that R. H. Marden is insane. That outsiders induced the jailer to coufiue him (Hoskins) in a cell (which was disproved). That he wanted to compel the court commissioner to com mit him to jail. He allowed a partial examination of himself and without cause refused, with some show of auger, to answer questions or allow further examination. Q. The patient did (here state what the patient did in the presence of either or both of the examiners), and the patient's appearance and manner was? A. That of one laboring under sup pressed excitement. Q. Other facts indicating insanity, including these communicated to us by others, as follows: A. Falsely and without cause ac cuses Assistant County Attorney Corlies with trying to influence the judge of pro bate to appoint an enemy of his on the commission to examine him as. regards to his insanity. On the recommendation of the exam iners that his disease was of such a nature that he should be placed in an insane asylum. Judge Burbauk made out the warrant of commitment to tha asylum at Fergus Falls on Dec. 22. Attorney Johns said last evening that he had not determined as vet when or or before what court he would make the application for a writ of habeas corpus in the case, but the application could be mane before any judge of the district court.
