tain Howard the American who was In
charge or the Uatlln guns during the
hair-breed rebellion In the Northwest
with having scalped the dead after the
fight at Fish Creek which took place
at the latter end or May last. Thejlon-
treal Gazette this morning denies the
charges and reminds the l'ost that Cap-
tain ltowaru was not at Fish Creek and
that he did not arrive there until sev-
eral days after the fight.. Caplaln How-
ard was on board theTlteamer North-
cole which was struck In Saskatche-
wan 160 miles south or Fish Creek at
the time the skirmish ocourred and If
he had scalped the dead at Fish Creek-
he must have dug them out or their
graves. The l'ost this evening returns
to the charge and says It was a mistake

ard In tbelr presence scalped one dead
man after the light at llatoche. and
when he was here recently he made no
secret about It. The scalping theyssy
took place the day after the tight when

TEXAS. MONDAY JANUARY 4. 1886.
A "PRETTY" OASE.
Three Eipert Cracksmsn Arrested by
Captain Tom Hughes.
During the months ot November and
December numerous burglaries took
place In the city and Ihe police were
completely ballltd as to who the perpe-
trators were. Ilurglarlesat Mrs. Tobln
Mrs. Cole. Mrs. Favllle Mr. Clark. Mr. 1
Prescott. Colonel llelknap and Claude
Duval's houses were committed In rapid
succession. A short time ago a letter
round lis way Into the hands or the Clly
Marshal which disclosed a scheme to
rub Messrs. I.npowskl'a store at Uonra-
le. The letter was written by a young
man In their employ and Ihe person to
whom It was addressed was aiked lo
come to Uonzalea In company wllh n
third party. City Marshal Shsrileln
turned the allalr over to Cantulu 'IVm
Hughes who wrote a letter to Sherlir
..ones ni uouzaies lo watch I.npowskl'a
store and the letter which had been
opened by a wrong party was re-
placed In Iho postolUce. The letter was
delivered and Its Instructions heeded.
Shortly after the two parlies ment'oncd
In Ihe letter came to (Jonrales and at-
tempted to put their scheme ot robbery
into ptiH llce lull railed and the three
oriheiii were arrested by Sheriff Jones.
Captain Hughes went lo Uonznlesanil
returned on Friday with his prisoners.
Their names are Oeorge S. Williams
alias George W. Snblnes and (leorgo W.
Sanders A. II. Hud a las A. C. Tyner
and A. II. Tyner. Dick Feltenstahl the
third was the clerk In the storo at Uun-
zalcs and the one who wrote the letter
A great deal ot the stolen prop-
erty rrom San Antonio was found
In their possession and at Houston one
valUc being found at Galveston. On
Saturday a Jew named Sellg Deutsc'i-
msnn was n!o arrested lor complicity
and receiving stolen gunds.
From statements made by the prison-
ers. It appears that .the three of them
have been executing a series or robber-
ies rrom Kansas City to this place
where by the shrewdness or Captain
Tom Hughes their laid nnd Ingenious
schemes were discovered These men
are all or them expert cracksmen and
their arrests are Important ones. Cap-
tain Hughes deserves credit ror working
up what in detective parlance would be
called a "pretty" case. Sheriff .lones.or
Gonzales was also an admirable assist-
ant to Captain Hughes.

past 22 years ltev. W II. II. Snyder has
been pastor of the Salem Iterormed
Church which numbers In Its congrega-
tion some of the mot prominent men In
the oltv. Previous to his summer vaca-
tion Mr. Snyder preached a sermon
which was so much grander than prev-
ious efforts that the congregation re-
marked about It. A young attorney
whoJieard the sermon took notes and
subsequently he was reading a volume
of ltev. T. Dewltt Talmage and noticed
he similarity. Upon Investigation the
discovery was made that the semion
preached by Hev. Mr. Snyder as original
was the work of Mr. Talmage. Some
prominent church members I old Mr.
Snyder that he had better resign as his
further connection wilh the church
would decrease the congregation. Mr.
Snyder It Is thought will comply with
the request as soon as a position can be
Another Siren In the Hocks.
On Saturday morning a verdant Indi-
vidual bearing the cognomen of John
McOee made an nilidavlt before Justice
Crawrord against one llattle llaxter a
very very soiled damsel with whom It
seems MrUee had previously been ou
lover's terms. He said llattle had ap-
propriated six or his i'AI gold pieces
without his consent and having been
told she had done It llattle returned
three of them saying It was nil she had.
Ills conlldeuce in her was shaken how-
ever and he enlisted the blind dodders
to assist him In accounting tor the dis-
crepancy. Tliovvarrant;ror her arrest
was executed by Deputy Constable
Krempkau and llattle was brought Into
court where she waived an examina-
tion and was placed under a $500 bond
to await action or the grand Jury. Hat-
llc railed to give the bond however nnd
now languishes In the dungeon or the
wicked and rrlendless.
Getting In the Wrong House.
Alberto Hatnos a rather good-looking
Mexican was before the Itecorder this
morning charged with disturbing the
peace of Mr. Herman Ilrcndel and fam-
ily last night. Mr. llrendel testified that
he was awakened by a man trying to
get In at Ihe w Indow. As the fellow
raited Ihe window Mr. II. dealt him a
blow which knocked him back and then
he went away ltaruos said he was
drunk and mistook the house for one
where disreputable women lived. This
was his excuse. He was Informed that
getting In at Ihe window was not even
countenanced at these houses and a
one oi i was accortungiy imposed
A Red-Headed Coy
Peter lluckley a llery-halred blue-
eyed boy with n neck as whlto as a
woman's was arrested for being a va-
grant. He was found asleep In a hay
loft. He said he came hero with Iho
Diamond King and bad been at the
camp on Nacogdoches street helping
with the cooking until a few days ago
when the Doctor and he parted com-
pany He said he could again get work
with the Doctor It allowed to go and
the court generously dismissed him.
A Scathing Criticism of the Board o
Ilitltiir Pan Antonio Mailt.
At the point where the Illnz-Kngul
mann road turns out or the lane about
one-hair mile rroiu the SaUdo In
a southwesterly course towards the
Government hill I was struck by some
essential alterations In Colonel llrack-
enrldge's late fencing which caused
Ihe following reflections; Why (I lit
Colonel Ilrackenrldge more the on
rence already built by whluli the nboto
mentioned lane between Mr. Klvenhauer
and Mr. Ackermann was prolonged lo
the terminus of Iho iccalleil lilt 7.-
Kngelmann roadwhich was ror It be-
1 ngs 1 think already lo the lliinvt a
passed-at the city limits and left a
passage between his land and Mr. Ack-
ermann'a pasture? Has the Colonel
changed his plan or operation that Is
to run said lane on to the next estab-
lished road Inside tho city limits as It
had been proposed by our honorable
olty fathers and Intends to run It now
through snld passage.lhough not cleared
rrom brush nnd other natural obstruc-
tions or Impediments? One would be
Inclined lo make this conclusion If he
had left the passage wide enough Tor a
second class road. Notwithstanding
this fact however we are JustllUd in
suspecting something wrong as one
member ot the County Commissioners'
Court maintains and certainly that
member Is not the most unimportant
that the road along Mr. Aikcr-
mann'a pasture Is by fur Hie best
and the nearest. However Inconceiv-
able like the holy trinity tills assertion
Is as they will have lo run It back for
some distance to make It Intersect the
city line at some remoter point It may
be clear and Intelligible to high people
but certainly not to people who only
converse with the plebaus. Why do
our County Commissioners not use Ihelr
authority? Why do I hey permit Colonel
Ilrackenrldge lo close up an Important
legally established road before Us ler-
mtnns? Is It because our City Fathers
would perhaps not have forced Col. 11.
to give the rfght-or-way Inside the City
limits? This Is no excuse; they could
have walled for that ract. Another reu-
son for Ihe complaisance or the Com-
missioners towards Col. 11. (hough men-
Honed the last It may not be most lm-
probnble Is the following: At or about
whero Ihe Seguln road Intersects the olty
limits a hot light Is fought between the
Honorable County Commissioners' Court
and Mr. John Jnmes or Ibis city. That
gentleman did not reverently lake oil
his hat nnd bow to the worst and most
unjuslllled change or n road or all Ihe
bad ones that have been made by this
honorable body; he had Ihe courage lo
put his rence In the middle or the road
so changed and this tact may account
for the above mentioned complaisance or
the County Commissioners' Court this
body not wishing to light at two differ-
ent points at the same time; (It win not
be denied that It would have taken some
trouble to Induco our Honorable City
Fathers to actually make a dash at the
much reared Colonel.) They don't sing
either: "Mourlr pour la pnrtrle o'est le
sort le plus beau." etc.
Another nuestlon arises- Is this .
Justilled change or the Seguln road
norm iigiiuug jorr as mere any kind
or right or Justice In the action there
being no cause for a change nud to put
the road on another man's land without
his permission without paying him
dnmages? And what kind ot a rosd!
Good gracious! One breaks a wheel
another one the axle a third one throws
his freight Into Mr. Ackerman'a rence
etc. Considering that to all this comes
tho probability that the change Is per-
hapa the cause or the surrender or the
good Important Illnz-Kngelmann road
(Ihe change or the latter may be consid-
ered as equivalent to a surrender or dis-
continuance). Verily! I am entitled to
exolaim: Stop your blessed actions or
wo will perlsn at the hands or your
Those citizens that demolish Mr. J.
James rence Indirectly; participate) In
the bad action or our honorable County
Commissioners' Court. 1 maintain that
road Is not worth to demolish a rent e
for It. they ought to petition for the old
Seguln road where It Justly and right
eously belongs. Our great and Illustri-
ous German writer Fr. Schiller says:
"It Is the curse of tho bad deed that It Is
bound to continuously produce bad.!"
Our honorable County Commissioners'
may study this and Improve by It.
Very respectfully. Jul. I.ikck.
