WASHINGTON , D. C. , Jan. 29. Tao demo
crats of the house of representatives have
found it necessary to nppanl to n caucus de
cree in order to nocurc unity ot notion in the
adoption of rules for the government ot the
proceedings ot the houso. It is n matter of
r omo significance that the subject ot dissen
sion in the democratic ranks is thnt clause of
the proposed cede which enables the commit
tee on rules nt nny titno to call up for con-
Mdcrntlon a report of that committee , and
preventing dilatory motions bolng made
pending such consideration. To give the
speaker power to recognize nnd to prevent
dilatory motions at such particular time ,
and not clotbo him with like power
nt nil other times acorns to many
democratic members n great discrimination
in favor of the committee ot which thu
iponker Is ox-ofilclo chairman nnd whoso de
liberations ho naturally directs , nnd th < > pro
posed rule was roost bitterly attacked by
various members of the dominant party. So
* llttlo , however , was attention * paid to
I. * party lines during the debate that ouo of the
" strongest supporters of the rule was Hon.
James Buchanan , tbo well known republican
representative from Now Jersey.
Connlderntlon of the Itiilcn ,
The house this morning proceeded to the
further consideration of the report of iho
committee on rules pending an amendment
withdrawing from the jurisdiction of the ap
propriations committee appropriations for
the support of the District of Columbia.
After considerable debate the amendment
was rejected nnd nn amendment was also re
jected to take from the committee on rivers
nnd harbors jurisdiction over tbo appropria
tions for iho improvement ot tbo Mississippi
river.
In speaking to an informal amendment Mr.
Morse of Massachusetts turned his attention
to Massachusetts politics. That state was
represented In the house today by five re
publicans and seven democrats. The demo
cratic members were ail gentlemen of high
character nnd ability. Massachusetts sent
no other mon hero. [ Laughter.J Ho had
not a word to nay against uny of tboso gen
tleman , but truth compelled him to say that
Massachusetts was at present ralsrnpro-
sentod on this floor. Governor Russell bad
f \f \ bo6n" rVeloctod for three reasons first , his
[ , ij personal popularity ; second , the prohibition
Lr5-voto ; third , because ho denied on the stump
every democratic doctrine.
Mr. liutlor of lonn ( Jets I'uimy.
Mr. Butler ot Iowa said that them was a
circus In town. The grand royal combina
tion , the great and only monopolistic aggre
gation , the allied union of protective oper
allves baa sounded its fish horn , declaring
its grand opening with moro Pharisees to the
dorpn thun over sent forth their praises in
the streets of tbo old Jerusalem [ laughter ]
und such mon to speak about the duties of
true statesmanship I The republicans claim
tbat they nlono were patriots , when tholr
every act of legislation relative to foreign
countries bad been on insult to the American
Hag. They had compared our country with
tthcr nations , nnd , for shame , had declared
our inability to compete with them in ordi
nary affairs of life.
Mr. Do Forest of Connecticut inveighed
ncaftist the rules of the last congress nnd the
decisions made under them and approved
the proposed codo. Branching off to a short
discussion of the sliver question bo declared
that if a fruo coinage bill was passed by this
congress it would not go out with the stamp
of endorsement of the democratic party
upon it.
Seemed to lie n MlmimlcrHtnmllng.
Mr. Dlngloy of Maine said that the gentle
man from Illinois , Mr. Springer , In a speech
delivered In New York had declared that
this bouso would not pass a free silver bill.
He also understood that the gentleman from
I'cxas. Mr. Lanham , had withdrawn his
amendment giving the committee on coinage ,
weights and measures leave to report at any
time , on the assurance of the gentleman of
Missouri , Bland , that it was unnecessary.
There seamed to bo some misunderstanding
somewhere and bo wished to call the atten
tion of the gentleman from Illinois to tbo
matter.
Mr. Springer 1 did not make the state
ment thnt this house would not pass a free
coin ago bill.
Mr. Dlngloy I understood tbo gentleman
to bo so reported. Will the gentleman please
state what ho did sayl
Mr. Springer I said that a free coinage
bill would not become a law because your
president would vote It.
Hooker of Mississippi moved to strike from
tbo rules the provision making It always in
order to call up for consideration a report
from the committee on rules and prevent
dilatory motions being made pending such
consideration. ,
Springer of Illinois earnestly opposed the
motion and gave bis hearty approval to the
i > ulo reported by the committee on rulos.
Ills Maiden Talk.
FV Mr. Bailey of Texas , the youngest member
' f iho house and who oamo to Washington
i 'with < quilo n reputation for oratory , then
took the floor and ho fully justified that
reputation , His remarks were directed to
nn advocacy of Mr. Hooker's motion. Ho
opposed the rule as reported , because it wns
nn essential departure from the ttadltlons Of
the domocratlo party n departure which ho
was unwilling to sco bocouio n law of tbo
house except over his respectful protest.
Chlpman of Michigan opposed the rule ,
which ho contended was following a bad
precedent.
Ealoo of Tennessee preferred the business
of the house should bo resulatod by a com
mittee on order of business , but if that could
not bo done ho was in favor of tbo proposed
rulo.
rulo.Buchanan
Buchanan of Now Jersey advocated the
rule as an enlargement of tbo liberty of rep
resentatives and not a contraction thereof.
thu rillliiutrr ,
Brocklnridpe of Kentucky thought that all
talk about the filibuster amounted to nothing
but a scarecrow. As a rule , the filibuster
was a first rate follow. Fifteen yoara ago he
bad prevented tbo force bill from being put
upon the south , ( This allusion to Mr. Randall -
dall was rfreoted with applause. ! The fill-
buitor bad defeated the education bill , It
wns uot true that the filibuster was entirely
to bo cut. It was well sometimes to bo on
good terms with him.
Mr , Oatos offered an amendment providing
for the appointment of a committee on order
of business to consist of flftoon members
( ton democrats nnd five opposition ) which
guould bavo leave to report at any tl mo , and
of which the speaker should boox-ofllcio
chairman.
After further debate , but without action ,
tbo bouse adjourned until tomorrow.
During tbo debate on the contested rule
several of the democratic leaders had held an
Informal conference aud discussed the wis
dom of calling a party caucus to secure unity
of action among the democratlo mombors. It
was finally decided that such a course was
imperative , and Immediately after adjourn *
mout tbo caucus was announced for tomor
row evening at 7:30. :

An American Womnn TclN of Her Thrilling
Kxpcrlrncm In Snnttitgo.
Souni BBND , Ind. , Jau. 29. Mrs. Edwin
Dodd of this city bos just returned from San
tiago , Uhlll , where she has been the last
year , during which time she mot with some
thrilling experiences. She was there during
the Balmnccda troubles and bus much to say
in roforcnco to them. Sbo wns in Santiago
teaching in a loading college at the time of
the disturbances and sav many dangerous
nnd peculiar situations.
"The attitude of the country toward the
United States is ono of extreme hatred , "
said sho. "Tro people are far behind the
times. I found Santiago society in an ox-
tremol.v demoralised state , Tbo city con
tnlns about 200,000 Inhabitants and is ono of
the wickedest places on the globe. Statis
tics show It has moro gambling dons than
nny city la the world. BalmaceJa was a
man of progressive ideas and instituted
many reforms , which caused the opposition
to inaugurate the rebellion which resulted in
his overthrow. After the trouble no one
wns allowed on tbe streets after dark with
out n pass. The bells were ordered silent in
case of lire , as their ringing might excite Iho
people , consequently there wore many de
vastating conflagrations. No ono was allowed
to wear anything of a rod color , as that was
tbo color ot the rebels.
"Ono evening wo were walking on the
streets , when suddenly around the corner
appeared a troop of soldlors , followed by n
mob of greasy , dirty natives , looking moro
llko savages than civilized beings. In a
moment's time , it seems , the streets were
filled with people and the air rang with
shouts of 'Vive 1'opposition. ' Guns were
fired and rod bunting appeared everywhere.
Women rushed to the stores nnd bought
everything In the dry goods line that Dad red
In it. They distributed it among the mob.
The women all through the trouble were
nearly all on the sldo of the opposition and
worked many secret schemes to aid tbo
cause , oven to concealing small printing
presses In their homes , upon which were
printed llttlo incendiary speeches , copies of
which the woman carried about and dis
tnbutod from house to bouse under their
cloaks. In many cases families were divided ,
the greater majority of the moro Intelligent
being for Balmadooo. .
"After the Itnta affair the Chilians be
came greatly incensed at our country and
tholr hatred has been growing moro and
moro bitter all the timo. These who kept
United States goods were compelled to
secrete them or sell them as being imported
from other countries. The warlike feeling
throughout all Chill is strong and tbe rank
and file believe they can easily whip the
United States. Martinez , the member of the
Chamber of Deputies who voted ngatnst
apologizing to the United States , is a fire
eater of the worst description.
Fcnra Another Outrage.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , Jan. 29. Lieutenant
McCrenono of the officers of the cruiser Bal
timore who acted as interpreter at the secret
examination ot the Baltimore's sailors by tbo
Valparaiso criminal court , said today tbat
the passions of the Chilian populace could
not bo curbed nud that they were certain to
break out before long in some uow Indignity
ncnmst American sailors or Americnn'intor-
osts. Ho said tbat tbo present oxcitomoni
among the young hot-heads at Santiago and
'
Valparaiso'ls only part of n general senti
ment omong all the people , and.ihnt , in his
judgment , there would occur within thu next
year an outrage fully as grave as the assault
upon the sailors of the Baltimore.

SCIINKIDUlt AND HIS HOIUIID WIFE.
Scntonco of Dcnth 1'uonecl Upim Two Cold-
Vloodud Murderers.
VIENNA J n. 29. The sensational Schnei
der murder trial ended today. The jury
found Schneider and his wife guilty and
both prisoners were sentenced _ to death.
For cold blooded cruelty this case stands
almost without a parallel In the annals of
crime in this city. The evidence against the
accused was overwhelming , but Frau
Schneider until yesterday * stoutly main
tained tbnt her husband was alone responsi
ble for the death of the girls. Schneider
described in detail bis method of doing
away with the girls. Ho would ao to
the room occupied by tbe girl last employed
by bla wife , and despite bor pravors and eu-
treatlos would criminally assault her. It
was thought by tba police that ho first
chloroformed bis victims , but In bis confes
sion Schneider said they were always con
scious when ho attacked them.
Horrible as It may appear , his wife ac
companied him and aided him In tbo ac
complishment of this fiendish crime , and
afterwards she would grasp the hands of tbo
victim while Schneider clutched tbo poor
girl by the throat und choked her to death ,
Tbo same course was pursued In the case
of all the eight victims. After the girls were
dead Schneider and bis wlfo would convoy
the bodies to a wood clobO to their homo ,
whore they would strip their victims of their
clothing which , together with tbo contents
of tbo girls' luggage , they would afterwards
sell ,
The Schneider trial , however , has been
marked by the presence of a very large num
ber ot stylishly dressed Indies , who leveled
tholr lorgnettes and closely scanned the
features of tbo prisoners , Some oftho ; ovl-
donco was of a nature to bring a blush to
most any cheek , but those ladles , though
some of thorn did blush at certain parts of
tbo testimony , were so eager to hear every
word of the outrages , murders and robberies
that they conquered their natural Inclination
to leave tbo court room , and galnintr courage
from tbo many women present they remained
and had tboir curiosity gratified.
The public prosecutor in his speech against
the prisoners gave a most , vivid description
of the fiendish character of the crimes and
bo dwelt at length upon the cruelty , heart-
lessuess and lack ot all womanly fooling
manifested bv Frau Schneider in enticing
tbo girls to her home , wbero sbo know death
would bo tholr fate. He dwelt , too. upon the
perverted nature of the woman which had
led bor to become an accomplice of her hus
band In the gratification of Ills animal pas
sions nnd induce her to take advantage of
her sex to procure victlus for bis lust.
There wns a great sensation in iho court
room when at tbo conclusion of his speech
the publlo prosecutor straightened himself ,
and pointing with outstretched arm at
Schneider , exclaimed ( n a loud tone , "Ho is
a doomed man.1' ' Throughout tbo teniblo
nrrilgumeut of tbo prisoners by tbo publlo
prosecutor Schnoldor sat with bis bead
clasped in bis hands and .showed no emotion
whatever. His wife , though she lUJonod
closely to the scathing words applied to her ,
remained perfectly cool and unmoved.
When the death soutenco was passed upon
them they showed no fear , but lUtonod to
the fatufu ) words with uu air amounting
almost to IndltToronco ,

B18 FOUIITP.ENTH STUBBT , f
WsiiiNOTON , D. ( X. Jan. 29. J
The disputed boundary casa between Iowa
nnd Nebraska came up in the supreme court
this afternoon. Nebraska was represented
by J. M. Woolworth nnd O. J. Groon. and
lown by Hon. Smith MoPhorsonof Rod Oak.
The Issue Involved Is the land lying between
the channel ot the river ns it was In 1810 nnd
the present channel , Including Saratoga aud
Busha's bond. Slnco 1S40 the river channel
bos changed n score of times. In 1851 , when
it wns first surveyed and meandered , the
Iowa sboro passed through government lot
1. in section 20 , on the northwest , nnd then
swept to a point far east of the eastern
termini of both bridges now standing. In
1850 it had oaten northward from the Nebraska -
braska sldo nnd southward on the Iowa side.
The survey ot 1877 showed the Iowa bank
line crossing the southeast X of soctlon 31 ,
and sweeping northward in a horseshoe
curve around and through soctlon 2.
Nebraska claims the line of 1877 , which
sun Insists was duo to gradual accretions
to the shore lino. Iowa claims the old ilnoof
1S40 , far to the oast. Neither sldo holds
claim to the present channel. The Nebraska
claim , if allowed , will give about half of
East Omaha to Nebraska. The Iowa claim ,
if admitted , will put practically the whole of
that suburb la Iowa.
Mr. Green made an able argument on the
theory that the Btato was entitled to tha
slow acccrotlons to Its batiks. Mr. Woolworth -
worth lollowoa with nu explanation of the
perplexing maps which accompanied the
briefs and which were gridlronod with Hues
showing the changes In the rlvor.
There are few precedents bonrintr on tbo
case and tha decision will bo largely based
on conflicting testimony submitted with the
briefs.
Handled Without Glovci.
Secretary Rusk has addressed a long letter
to Senator Paddook reviewing the contro
versy with Dr. Billings of the Nebraska
oxperlmont station in regard to the cultiva
tion of swino. Secretary Rusk handles Dr.
Billings in this matter with ungloved hands ,
and says that his actions have been a dis
grace to the state ; that the attacks of Dr.
Billings bavo been so frequent , so virulent
and so ungentlotnanly in tbolr language
that it is considered a dlseraco , not only1 to
Nebraska , but to the experiment stations as
a wholo. The secretary regards the contro
versy ns "n gross impropriety , since Dr. Bll-
Imgs bos abused the secretary of agriculture
and the chief of the ouroau of animal In
dustry. "
Ho states that be Is not making investi
gations of experiment stations , as their work
is essentially distinct from the scientific
work of tbo Agricultural department , nnd
that , it would bo an improorloty to Day'tno
expenses of an investigation out of an ap
propriation made by congress for tbo ad
vancement of agricultural science. - '
Thinks Ho Was Kipose'il. '
The secretary declares that Dr. Billings ,
having been exposed and driven to the wuU ,
"finds it convenient to pass us a lone-suffer
ing individual who has boon quietly laboring
in the cause of science. " and that "in' this
way and by reason of tno theory that Ne
braska's interests have been neglected , .bo
hopes to receive sympathy and support , " and
after clamoring so long for an opourtunity to
domonutrato the success of his Inoculation as
a preventive to hog cholera , It was cer
tainly ridiculous to find him evading the op
portunity which Dr. Salmon gave him to
make a test at Ottawa , III. ; that Dr. Billings
wanted nu Investigation , but'not by sci
entists ; that , instead of accepting that op
portunity , ho did all bo could to delay tbo
tests which were finally made , and It proves
beyond a Question of doubt that Dr. Salmon
was right in stating that inoculation was
dangerous and may spread tbo disease. In
this case fiO per cent of the hogs inoculated
bv tbo Billings method have dlod from tbo
effects and tbo disease has since spread to
the hogs inoculated and also to those not in
oculated. >
"In the faoo of the fact of his unfailing
recommendation of this method , " says bee-
rotary Rusk , "and his statement ' that any
farmer could safely use It , what 'more can bo
said to show that ho cannot bo relied upon
and that bis teachings are deceptive and
dangerous ! The investigations having
turned out as disastrously as his pretensions
by the investigations of scientists made some
years ago , bo now turns to the people of Ne
braska and frankly calls upon them to stir
themselves up and llttlo they know that they
nro Nebraska's enemy and not the subjects
of Jerry Rusk or bis department. If tbo
state of NebrasKa chooses to keep such a
man ot this kind In such a conspicuous
position , paying him $ ) , GOO a year and allow
film to expend the station's fund , 1 suppose
she has tbo power to do so , out bor people
cannot fall to sco that this Is a discredit and
disgrace which ho brings upon bor fair
uume. "

WASHINGTON , D. O. , ( Jnn ) 20. Tbo decree
of King Caucus is to bo invoked to settle the
silver question In the democratic party. This
was decided upon today. The opponents of
free coinage bavo taken' the initiative m de
manding a party caucus. Representative
Hnrtcr of Ohio has circulated n petition
among the democratic members of the house
for n caucus to bo hold Frjday. Hartor had
no difficulty m getting many more than the
requisite number of signatures to the call ,
and on the presentation ol the paper Mr.
Holman stated that ho wov d at ouco issue
tbo call.
The democratic caucus is on legislative
matters have never been regarded as abso
lutely binding on members /of the house aud
a talk with a number of-democrats made it
ovidout that the caucus' determination on
the silver question would have loss of a bind-
ng force than n caucus on alma at any other
question. Tno call was circulated by nntl-
silver mon. It Is a restricted , and not n
binding caucus call , A number of free coin
age democrats who were soon said they did
not bollovo the antts would abide by a de
cision tnvorablo to free silver. A great mnny
mon both for and agalns silver would refuse
to go into a CAUCUS unless assured that it
would not be regarded- binding. Air.
Bacon of Now York and others refused to
sign the call.
Mr. Bland when told that d'caucus call was
in circulation and asked U ho would go into
it and abide by its decision said ! "I don't
want to be Interviewed on tbat now , 1 want
to wait and see what is aono. "
Mr. Williams of Massachusettsnu nntl-
frco colnaeo democrat on the committee ,
admitted that ho know'of tne call , but ho
bad not signed it. Ho could not bo Induced
to make answer as to whether or not ho
would go Into such a caucus.
Will Vote for Tree Silver.
Mr. Robertson , the Loulsnn * member ot
the coinaeo committee , said : "I am going
to vet for a free coinage bill in committee
nnd In the houso. I have no objection to its
discussion 111 caucus ; but on the silver ques
tion I propose to vote according to the
wisbos of my constituents whd elected mo
on a frco silver plank. I boltev&tbls caucus ,
If any is held , will emanate t from the anti-
silver men , and that if a .majority ot the
caucus should bo for froosilver ! ? they would
not bo bound by it , and on thatt-quostlon wo
have an example in casQ of Williams and
Hoar of Massachusetts , who Would not oven
nbido by the caucus decision oii'tho speaker-
ship because of the silver , question. And , "
added Mr. Robertson , "t wont-voto for any

Air. Tathnm of Texas , an icarnest free sil
ver man , said : "Boforo I nAs ver the ques

the coinage mooting , said : "I expectrto- *
tbero if u caucus is Ttreld'dnd sea what'is

pond'upon the democrats who go into it. I
came hero instructed for' roe sllve , and if a

ple , as is certain issues , U iut Ilka a party
platform. Whatever ray/pixrty says "In its
party platform I shall standby. The eastern
democrats would not agree to bo bound by
caucus action on the silver question , as was
evidenced by tbe action's of Messrs. Hoar
and Williams of Massachusetts , who refused
to vote for Speaker Crisp , a free coinage
man. because he would no ; pledge himself in
writing to throttle silver legislation on this
iloor. Then how can they expect free silver

ago Representative Watioi ) , farmers alliance
member from Georgia , prasoritod a resolution
instructing the committee op judiciary to in
vestigate quickly and as Julfy as ponlblo tbe
Plnkerton agonoy nod report to the house its
methods.
"It Is oar intention. " said Mr. Watson to
an Associated Press reporter today , "to push
'
this thing to the blttor e..d < This resolution
is a party measure with tbo farmers alliance
representatives. Wo think1 that for corpora
tions to arm and equip a standing army
to settle their difficulty with their
laborers by war Is reducing tbo government
to anarchy , The laborers have no right to
maintain a stunning army tp light the cor
porations and the corporations have no right
to maintain a standing army to fight tbo
laborers. If the government is not strong
enough to deal with these people nnd settle
tholr disputes from a government stand
point , then there is an end of tha rule of law
and the beginning of rule of that party
which can equip the heaviest Datalljons.
The Plnkorton. detective agencies , viewed in
the light of their actual prAcUces are but a
standing militia , subject to tbo heck and call
of th6 capitalists. They carry out the orders
of the capitalists , no matter to what
bloodshed those orderfTra" f lead , and they
do it totally irrespective of Ithefrights of the
other party. If nrmod intervention is to
come ai all , it should como front tbo army of
an Impartial magistrate , tat or federal ,
which recognizes that t her * wM two sides to
all labor questions and that5- the rights of
both are to oo considered , AVeVant to serve
notice to tbo bouso and Ihic'ommlttoo today
tbat wo expect action upoft'thls matter and
will protest against unr6d ! &nablo delay ,
either in committee or in ttfe > houso. "
Representative Simpson of Kansas , for tbo
farmers alliance of tUe wiSst'expressed the
same sentiments as Roprdipntativo Watson
of Georgia. / >
"Tho resolution will bo reputed unfavora
bly , " suld Mr. Oatoa tonlghi'for tbo reason
that congress Has no pofy rte take away
from the states tbo rogulatWu ° f this matter.
As tbo chairman of thostjbcjamtnlUo to which
this was referred , I callod'upoa Mr , Watson
to furnish us with tbo charter of tbo Pinkerton -
ton agency , so that wo might see whether its
regulation was something within the grant
of power to oongrcs * . and whether wo bad
the right to legislate upon it. If wo huvo no

ion , wo have no right to'ihqulro into it. "

On these statements , those known as the

by Mr. Paul to his own credit.
Contrary to expectations , the defense did
not Introduce Fist as a witness on his own
behalf , but rested after Receiver Lymor of
the City National bank had given some un
important testimony. The promised sensa

mittee of the bouso this morning unani
mously adopted the Springer policy and
decided to attack tbo McKlnley tariff by
various separata bills.
Nothing was said about which particular
feature of the present law should bo first at
tacked and this will "bo left to future deter
mination.
Mr. McMillin declined to atato what ho or
any other gentleman had said in committee ,
but did not hesitate to give it as his judgment
that a general bill was preferable to individ
ual or separate bills. Ho believed tbat the
demooratio position on the tariff was now
stronger than ovor. Ho did not think a loss
vigorous policy should bo adopted ngnlnst
the present McIClnloy law than was adopted
against the former tariff law , whoso average
rain of duty was 45 per cent. If that rate re
quired a general revision , as. was claimed by
all democrats , tbo requirements of good leg
islation were not loss against the present
law , which imposed an average duty of 00
per cent and , in addition , surrendered the
right of imposing taxation to the president.

KANSAS CITY , Mo. , Jan. 30. A prlvixto letter -
tor from n well Informed gentleman In the
City of Mexico contnlns the following :
"Tho ofllclnl nnd subsidized newspapers
hero nt the capital Insist thnt perfect oonco
reigns on the frontier nnd thnt the country
was never more quiet. It looks ns though
every possible effort wns bolng made to pro-
vonttlio news of the Garza movement from
being made public. The newspaper press la
so silent on the subject thnt It seems to bo
afrnld to publish news from the frontier.
Whenever the opposition papers venture to
malto mention of Garza aim his operations ,
the subsidized papers immediately begin to
threaten the opposition editors with arrest or
Imprisonment.
"Private ndvlcos which roach bora from
the northern frontier would 3 com to liullcato
that theoondltion nf affairs there merits moro
attention than the authorities are willing to
aamlt. Mexican revolutions in times past
have had oven smaller boglnnlngs."fcTbo ar
gument that thh country hus made so grout
progress in the lost decade that revolutions
nro muoh more dllllcult than formerly has
much fnrco. There Is force also in the fact
that the military mon are not only dluldont ,
bilt at the snmo time the element of discon
tent Is unimportant and thooaso of communi
cation makes It possible for the opponents of
the government In the various states to act In
haraiony much more readily than In former
times.
"All the Information that reaches hero In
dicates that the people of the northern fron
tier are not hostile to President Diaz , but to
the oRlcials whom bo has njipolntod. It Is al
leged that these ofllcials do not keep the cen
tral government correctly Informed of the
true stuto of affairs in the north. At the
snmo time there Is little If any doubt that the
men associated with Garza are entitled to
scant respect. They are characterized ns a
'bad crowd. ' No ono expects them to tri
umph , but it Is feared that they may cause
much trouble and that their example may
stimulate similar elements in other parts of
the country to nrmod disorder. If this
should provo to bo the case , the progress ot

bride , to return with him. Emma secured a
situation on a farm about two miles from
where her lever was employed. This was
about a your before the murdor. Andrew be
came dissipated nnd Emma Insisted tbnt
their engagement should bo broken. At this
Andrew became furious nnd swore ven
geance. From time to time ho visited Emma
and persisted in his suit , till at last at the
request of the girl , Emma's employer
paid him10 which bo had expended
in bringing Emma from Sweden and ro-
guostcd him to keep oft the promises.
On the night before the murder Andrew
wont to the villuco of Now Mllford and drank
hoavilv , starting for homo lute in the
evening. Ho did not enter his cm-
plovoq'H house , but sat under a shod toying
with his freshly sharpened Itnlfo until 2 a.
m. , when the desire for revenge got the bet
tor of bis love and ho started for the farm of
Emma's employer , Homer Buckingham ,
walking through a terrible storm which
raged ail night. Arriving at the house ho
placed a plank acainst the roof of the shod In
the roar , and taking off bis shoes , clambered
up the plank and into the window of Emma's
room , which , on accpuntof the heat , had been
loft open for the first time sinca Andrew's
threats. Ho attacked the sleeping girl and
slashed her with bis knife until the victim's
head was nearly severed from the body.
The nolso aroused the pcoplo and tno mnr-
Uoror was discovered by Mr. Buckingham us
ho was leaving the shed. Ho wns captuiod

frenzied use of the knife on bis victim ,
His trial was begun nt Litchtlold December

him guilty and hn was sentenced on January
8 , 1891 , to hang. A request for a now trial
was denied and an appeal for cljincnoy afow
weeks ago before tbo Stnto Board of Pardons
resulted In noninterference.
The banging took place in a new building
erected for the purpose. The gallows used
was ono upon which many murderers Imvo
paid the penalty in Now Hnvon nnd Bridge
