ARRANGING FOR THE RECEPTION.
The Committee on President Harrison's En
tertainment Getting Down to Work.
Galveston Tex. April 7. The city coun
cil as a whole met with the committee ap
pointed by the cotton exchange and cham
ber of commerce at the cotton exchange at
7 o'clock tonight for the purpose of taking
steps to formulate arrangements for the
reception and entertainment of President
Harrison and suite in their arrival in this
city on the 18th. Acting Mayor Grittiu
presided with F. L. Dance as secretary. A
full discussion of the scope and plan of re-
ception and entertainment was bad.
A committee embracing Messrs. Julius
Runge W. F. Ladd J. Uliman W. B. Loek-
hartand N. B Cullum were appointed to
arrange a programme and extend invita-
tions. It wut lie sense of the meeting that
in the entertainment of the president's
nartv all interests should be represented.
The county judge and county commission-
ers ai d R. i. Lowe D. D. Bryan and J. W.
iiurson were add pa to the general commit-
tee and D. D. Bryan elected permanent
secretary. The meeting then ad
journed antil 7 o'clock Thursday evening.
wnen tne committee on arrangements are
expected to report a plan of reception and
entertainment commensurate with the dig-
nity of the chief magistrate of the nation.
The city feels under great obligations to
President Harison for his expression of
good will toward Galveston and his ap
profal of the bill for harbw improvements
here and will put forth every effort to make
his reception and entertainment eeliuse
any he will receive during his trip through
the South and West.
FAST TRAIN SERViCE.
New Arrangement Between Kansas City and
Points in Texan.
Kansas City April 7. The Missouri
Kansas and Texas railroad at an early date
will inaugurate a new fast train service be-
tween Chicago St. Louis and San Antonio
Houston Galveston and all principal
points in Texas. This is the first step
toward improvement of the traffic service
of the entire system preparatory to the road
being taken out of the hands of the re-
ceivers. The Chicago fast train will run by
nanniuai Missouri connecting at mat point
witn ina isurungton ana St. ijouis tram
will run by way of Sedalia and Kansas
Tdftfft train which will leave in th
evening and arrive iu the morning will
connect with the Chicago and St. Louis
fast trains at Parsons Kas. This service
will reach from the gulf to the great lakes
and will be an improvement that has long
oeea neeaea. ine time between Kansas
City and Texas points will be shortened
from six to eight hours.
THE DIRECT TAX BILL.
The Amounts Dae the States Being Paid Iu
Boston Mass. April 7. The government
is remitting the money refunded to the state
under the direct tax funding bill in old sil-
ver certificates issued under the Bland 72
cent dollar act.
The state of Maine's $350000 came here
last night and part of it was offered in
settlement of balances at the clearing house
and refused. The banks have a verbal un-
derstanding not to use silver in the settle
ment of balances but tbe act of 1882 pro-
vides that no banking association shall re-
fuse these certificates. Hence fears of
bringing bankers to the silver basis are cur-
rent. Massachusetts will receive from $700000
to $800000 as its part of the refund in a few
days and this bids fair to complicate mat-
ters unless the state treasury carries the
money. The matter has caused much dis-
cussion among the banks and the outcome
is watched with interest.
DEATH OP P. T. BARNUH.
Tbe Great Showman Passes Away at His
Hume in Connecticut.
Bridgeport Conn. April 7. Barnum
rested quietly yesterday and up to 10
o'clock last night was considered to be im-
proving. At that time he was much worse.
The doctors said he was sinking rapidly and
at once advised Mrs. Barnum to notify her
children. They were telegraphed for and
will arrive today.
At midnight there was no perceptible
change in the aged showman he is con-
scious but talk little.
Later 6:22 p. m. P. T. Burnum is dead.
Fort Worth Tex. April 7. The move-
ment of cattle is now fully on and the
railroad people are kept busy to handle
them. Saturday there was handled 211 car
loads Sunday 190 car loads Monday 210
car lords and today 210 car loads making a
total in four days of 821 car loads or
19704 head of cattle. Most of these
cattle are billed to the grazing grounds in
the Indian territory but quite a number
were fatters and go to the Chicago Kansas
City and St. Louis markets. The move-
ment of cattle out of Texas is rapidly in-
creasing and it indicates a healthy condi-
tion of the live stock industry.

THROUGHOUT THE STATE
TOBT WORTH AND DALLAS.
A Three-Cornerad "Flht In the Latter
City and a Long Count OHloers
Elect In Other Towns.
Dallas Tex. April 7. Thepolls opened
at 8 o'clock Managers appointed by Mayor
Connor candidate of the Independents
agreed to give the Democrats a judge and
clerk in most of the wards. Two or three
wards are regar'ed with suspicion.! IThe
regular Republican nominee and Inde
pendent will get a very light vote most of
the Republican vote being concentrated on
Connor to beat the noftinee of the Demo
crats. Between these two the vote is very
close the negroes nearly all voting for
Connor. The working people mechanics
and half tbe business and nearly all the
professional classes are for the Democratic
nominee. The polls are being conducted
under city regulations which provide for
only one set of officers. Hence the vote
cannot be counted until tomorrow or next
day the wards having nine and ten hun-
dred votes revuiring thirty to forty hours to
count the votes after the polls close.
There has been much complaint hereto
fore about the manner of counting this
vote in the big wards it having been whis-
pered that votes were dodoctre to suit par-
ticular candidates and held back to give
time for this.
11 :30 a. m. The election is progressing j
everything is quiet andjorderly but much
hard work is being done and excitement
prevails. Many challenges were made un-
der ihe Kimbroagh law. A number of
challenged voters were rejected because
"no well Known resident ot the ward"
would swear the party was entitled to vote.
Others challenged were accepted. In Fifth
ward there may be a contest on this point.
Smith the manager of the election was a
candidate for city judge thereby disquali
fied to hold the election so tne mayor in a
proclamation named l). uooper. uooper
is a straight Democrat.
A few days after the first publication of
the notice Mayor Connor had Smith's
name substituted for Cooper in the official
notice uimtn had wnnarawn irom the
race for city judge and is a Connor man.

Tyler Tex April 7. The 'election held
here today has been one of tbe most excit
ing tor many years. Although things passed
off quietly without any fights everything
was deeply interesting and excitement ran
high. This morning when the International
and Great Northern train pulled in and
Gov. Hogg stepped off and walked over to
the polls and voted lor tne Mayor Elect
Brown Long Jr. hats and slicks were
thrown in tbe air and things made hideous
with shouts. But the climax
was reached this evening when

banners flying voted for Long for mayor

cording to motto almost to a man. Tbe

McKee. Her brother is J. D. Waters a
In bis speech Col. Frye took occasion to
refer to Mrs Deitz In the strongest terms.
In the course of his speech he said : "I tell
you the immodest cancan dancer the ini
modest ballet girl with all her disgusting
lewdness was not as Dad as tnat woman
when she sat there with her ungloved hand
to her iftco
At another point he said : "My God I I
only hope that in this case tbe woman who
was tbe tirst to accuse or tne nrst to make
the outcry I only hope that she may not
be proven to have been the one who admin-
istered tbe poison that took from this earth
to the heavens the soul of good Mrs. Wiru-
pii." The sensation these strictures created
was great. The husband was only prevent-
ed from making a scene by the immediate
adjournment of court. Col. Frye was hnd-
dled out by the back door by his colleagues.
Deitz at once conferred with triends and
started after Frye. He was joined by Waters
and both talked very fiercely. So lar it has
ended in talk however Frye. Waters and
Deitz are armed and trouble is looked for at
