A PLOT DISCOVERED IN MEX-
WIDESPREAD SCHEME TO DE-
POSE THE PRESIDENT AND

OTHER LEADERS OP
TBE TUXTEPEO PAR-
St. Louis, Aug. 15—A
special telegram from the
City of Mexico to the Globe-
Democrat says a conspiracy
against the government, dis-
covered there, embraces a plot,
to depose President Gonzalez
and put in his place Jose Ma-
ria Iglesias, and also to as-
sassinate General Diaz and all
the leaders of what is known
the Tuxtepec party. The plot
is said to be widespread in the
States ot Vera Cruz, Pueblo,
Mor< los and Queretaro, and
that there is great public anx-
A number of arrests were
made in the City of Mexico
during the week, embracing'
several prominent persons,
among them Francisco Mejia,
ex-minister of finance: Record-
er Romierez, ex Judge of the
Federal District; Gregorio
Perez, Señor ,Tardón a prom
inent lawyer; General Felicia-
no Chavarra, Colonel Jose
Maria Rodiieguez de Vegan,
Agustín Mendoza, Ambrocio
Domingued, Ramon Juarez,
Miguel Salcedo, and Vidal
Corral; also the wife of Jordon.
The latter had a small print-
ing office in which a large
number of posters were found
ready for circulation inciting
the people to revolt against
present government in favor
No further explanation is
given, but other arrests, it is
expected, will be litado and
active measures will be takeu
to defeat the plot.

The government detectives
are said to have obtained a list
of the conspirators in Jordon's
possession. General Allatorne
has not been arrested. The
plan of the conspiracy is to re-
construct the government, as
in 1876, under President
Lerdo. It is thought the con-
spiracy was betrayed by a
compositor in Jardon's office,
who has been arrested and,
with his wife, kept in close
A well authenticated squir
rel story comes from Fishkill,
Dutchess county, N. Y. Wil-
liam H. Callaghan aud family
live in (hat village, and for
years one of the pets of the
household has been a red
squirrel. Three weeks ago
the cage door was left open
and the squirrel escaped out
of doors. It was chased by
the boys and Mr. Callaghan,
and it was last seen jumping
from tree to tree. Its where-
a bouts was lost sight of .in the
darkness, and the Cállaghaiis
made up their minds that
their pet was lost to them.
The squirrel, however, sur-
prised the family by running
into the breakfast-room one
morning this w^ek, and,
jumping np on the table,
greed! v began to drink milk
out of a cup. It appeared to
be nearly starved to death. It
was emaciated to a degree,
aud its coat of hair had been
torn out in spots by the roots,
evidently the result of a fight
with some animal in the
woods, on or near tha Fishkill
mountain. Now, when the
outside door of the Callaghan
house is left open, the squirrel
looks out, but refuses to cross
St. Louis, Aug. 16—A.
special from the City of Mex-
ico says: Forty persons'bavo
been arrested in connection
with the conspiracy. General
Peza, chief of the artillery
department, and General
Eohegary, have been impris-
oned. Eehegary commanded
the garrison : t Vera Cruz, un-
der the Diaz administration,
five years ago. Peza and Eehe-
gary were great friends, and
are thought to have had no
connection with the conspiracy.
The whereabouts of Gene
ral Chavarrias is not known.
He has been removed from
the barracks. His son is out
looking for him. All of the
prisoners have been turned
over to Juan Perez de Leon,
first Judge of this district.
The authorities deny that any
prisoners were sent to Vera
Cruz or Y ucatan.
The conspiracy is reported
to have been to imprison or
shoot Diaz and Gongalez, on-
