meeting of dsp03it0rs.
Soring the past month a few depositors
In the Savings bank have been agitating the
subject of having a meeting of depositors.
Through this agitation a number of deposi-
tors, representing various sums, held a
meeting and decided to make a formal call
for a general gathering of depositors. The
Just what is to be the line of action
of those who meet is not stated in the call.
It is reported that Receiver Dr. Stuart, a
gentleman of high character and probity,
as now on hand over $30,000, which will be
distributed among the depositors during
the coming term of the District Court. Be-
sides holding this money he has posted for
sale all the property of the bank. It will be
knocked down under hammer in a few days,
providing the bidding will justify the sales.
If sold, the proceeds will be added
to the money already on hand and dis-
tributed fairly to all depositors. If the de-
positors desire to assist the receiver, they
«an do so bv resolving to encourage capital-
ists to bid liberally on the line property
that will be sold at auotion. One thing is
certain—the law will have to take its oourse.

The Ladies Aid Society of the McKee
Street church will hold a meeting to-mor-
row (Friday) night at the residence of Mrs.
r. B. George, in the Fifth ward.

Last night, at 8.30 o'clock, the Rev. L. C.
Kellie united in marriage D. A. Middleton
and Miss Dora Owen. The ceremony took
place in the parsonage of the Fifth Ward
Baptist church. Only a few friends of the
parties were witnesses of the affair.

The total amount of mall matter delivered
and collected in the city, for the month of
August, is as follows:
Delivered—Registered letters, mall let-
ters, mail postal cards, local letters,
local postal cards, and newspapers 124,702

why he was tied.
Since Jeff Salter, colored, was knocked
down and tied with a rope a few persons
iiave criticised this action on the part of
the officers. It was just as neoessary to tie
Jeff as it was to knock him down. Whea
Jeff is sober he is a very quiet and peace-
able man. When Jeff is drunk he is not
only powerful, but he is dangerous. He
took possession of a street car and fright-
ened women and children. They jumped
out of the car, and the driver was
forced from his stand. Officers
•were called for. Those who
responded to the call were forced back bv
Jeff, who flourished a brick. Deputy Sheriff
Gaston Ashe arrived upon the scene. He
was asked to assist in the capture of Jeff.
As he advanced upon the negro he was
struck at, and suddenly struck back with
the butt end of a riding whip, partially
stunning Jeff. For the safety of the officers
and also to keep the negro from fighting
and being beaten he was tied and taken to
jail. If Jeff had not been considered a
peaceable colored man when sober the offi-
cers would have used him in a still rougher
manner. His friends should be satisfied
that he got off so lightly.
much ado about nothing.
Considerable excitement was caused
about 9 o'clock by the arrest of Captain
Hike Hennessey. Policeman Credo stepped
up to Hennessey while he was standing; in
front of Usener's and said that he nad
"heard that Hennessey was armed with a
pistol. Hennessey declined to be interfered
■with unless a warrant was produced. As
le said this he stepped inside of Usener's.
Credo was reinforced and followed him in-
side. Hennessey was overpowered and
taken to the station-house, where his pistol
Was locked in the safe. He was released
on a promise to appear before Mayor
Smith at 9 o'clock to-morrow morning.
Hennessey says the arrest was made
through political malice. The police claim
that they are doing their duty. The trouble
grew out of the recent action of the board
of aldermen in taking away from Hennes-
sey's men their police powers.
the waterworks question.
. The city council met in special session
to-night on a call from Mayor Smith, for
the purpose of considering the resolution
passed by the late citizens meeting in the
investigation of the cause of the insuffi-
cient supply of water during the late fire at
the Howard Oil mills.
On motion, the contract of the water-
works with the city was read by City Clerk
The council adjourned and held a joint
conference with the citizens committee,
composed of H. 8. Fox, D. P. Shepherd, Dr.
L. A. Bryan and J. M. Cotton. Mayor
Smith was elected chairman of the com-
Considerable disctission took place, in
which Dr. Brvan, Alderman Underwood, J.
M. Cotton, Alderman Bering, D. P. Shep-
herd, Alderman Flynn, H. S. Fox and Al-
derman Cronin participated.
Dr. Bryan moved that the city council
meet and appoint a committee to confer
■with the citizens commute, and investigate
the waterworks matter.
Mayor Smith suggested that to investi-
gate lully, and learn whether or not the
-waterworks had furnished an adequate sup-
ply of water, that the committee be com-
posed of two from the citizens committee
and two aldermen. The mayor's sugges-
tions prevailed. Adjourned.

Not long ago a man named Pate, of Wil-
low creek, arrived in the city with a'team
and wagon, and a load of cotton. He
brought with him his wife and child. After
selling.the cotton he left the team, wagon,
and wire and child at Macatees, and came
across the bavou accompanied by another
individual. Pate had in his possession
about $100. Since the departure of Pate
and the other party neither has been seen
in the city. The owner of the team and
wagon came to Houston, claimed
lis property, and drove back

neighbors that he had been

A gentleman who knows Pate, and who
read in The News of his supposed fate,
wrote to a friend in the city that he saw
Pate at Ayres, a station on the International
and Great Northern railway, on the first
day of August. He also stated that Pate
was a Kentuckianjand not a Tennesseean,

Central Texas Presbytery—An Estimable Lady's
Coleman, September 2.—The Central
Texas Presbytery of the Bouthern Presby-
terian church, met here this morning and
was opened by Rev. L. Tennev, the retiring
moderator, in an able sermon, after which
the presbytery elected Dr. R. L. Dabney, of
the State university, as moderator. The
attendance is small, but from the reports of
the different churches it appears they are
in a good spiritual condition. Dr. R. K.
Smoot, of Austin, is here in attendance at
the presbytery. Dr. King, of Waco, is ex-
pected to-night. Our people are expecting
an intellectual treat from the preaching, as

El Partido Liberal published the sentence
in full of the deserters of the San Lucas
hospital. One of them, Private Augustin
Flores, was condemned to death, and Pri-
vates Catarlno Nunez and Pedro de Jesus
are to suffer ten years imprisonment.
A band of highwaymen, under the com-
mand of Mauricio Cruz, was defeated on
the 8th instant at San Antonio Mojines,
Nuevo Leon, by the federal troops. The
bandits had eleven killed, while the govern-
ment troops suffered a loss of five men,
among them Lieutenant Alberto Morales.
Four of the fleeing bandits were oaptured,
and were to be tried and shot on the spot.
Some explorers are said to have discover-
ed about sixty miles from Magdalena, So-
nera, a virgin forest wherein tney found a
pyramid having a base of 4350 square feet
and a heighth of 750 feet, which makes it
double of the celebrated Cheops pyramid.
The top may be reached In a carriage,
along a spiral-shaped road. The exterior
shaped walls are said to be made of granite,
perfectly put together. Not far from that
monument is a small mound, the Interior
whereof contains hundreds of rooms from
ten to fifteen feet long by five to ten wide.
These rooms have no windows or doors, but
entrance therein is effected through the top.
Their walls are covered over with paintings
and hieroglyphics. Some stone utensils
have been found within these rooms.
The Two Republics says: There will no
doubt be very many people who consider
the liberation of Cutting by the Supreme
Court at Chihuahua as a backdown, but,
strange as it may seem to hot-headed ob-
servers, the decision of the Chihuahua Su-
preme Court is in strict conformity with
the law ruling in Chihuahua, and another
proof of the care with which the Mexican
authorities observe their own laws.
The Spanish minister to Mexico has been
instructed by his government to closely
watch the progress of the Cutting case on
account of the question of extra territorial
The Brownsville (Tex.) Cosmopolitan
says: " It seems to us somewhat remark-
able that the Mexican government does not
fend a sufficient force at once to this fron-
tier to stamp out the few revolutionists,
and bandits masquerading under the guise
of revolutionists, who are molesting the
northern part of Tamaulipas and Nuevo
Leon. There are not over 300 or 400 men in
arms against the government all to-
gether, and a little active work would
soon restore peace. These disorders on
the frontier States do much to weaken the
prestige of the government at home and
boldly say that the government can not
and give an idea that it lacks stabi-
lity. Prominent revolutionary agitators
stand, and that by February Diaz will be
driven out of the capital, and that the troops
can not cope with the revolution, which is
constantly on the Increase. The move,
though not of much moment, greatly In-
jures our business and should be stamped
out at once."

Tie American minister publishes in the
Two Republics a notice to Americans that
foreigners who have acquired real estate,
or have had children born to them within
the republic, will be considered by the Mex-
ican government as Mexioan citizens, un-
less they officially declare their intention
to retain their own nationality, and to that
effect obtain from the department of for-
eign affairs a certificate of nationality on or
before December 4,1886.
The Two Republics says: It is very unfor-
tunate that most Americans who get them-
selves into trouble with the Mexican
authorities and become the object of inter-
national issues are no credit to American
citizenship, and owe their misfortunes to a
total disregard of the laws and customs of
Mexico. The Americans residing in the
City of Mexico are as patriotio as any
Americans to be found north of tne Rio
Grande, but at the same time their resi-
dence among Mexicans has taught them to
respect the laws and customs of Mexico and
to get rid of the ridiculous idea rampant
among a cer.'.t'n class of northern editors
that Mexico is in a state of anarchy and
