Later a line of skiffs was" established between the two cltlea In cXmii'etHton with the bridge, ReceUly the Brlchje Company co;ut)lJned that thes skiffs were currying passengers from this side, and demanded that the city vrowct the company. Several arrest and confisca tion of skin's have been made by city au thorities on this side for violating the city' franchise. Last night a olty police nan opened fire on a skiff wnloh had not cleared from the Mexican side, with two passeagers on board, and forced the boat to return, Th polloeman declares he did not snpot ta kin but only to frighten the sklsT man, who was aocused of violating many times the rights of the Texas city. The matter would probably have been adjusted by the local authorities, but It la reported that the incident ha been reported to the stats department of both governments. ' DEWEY AT NAPLES.
