IN THE RAILROAD WORLD.
HUNTINGTON AND PARTY
OVEB INTO MEXICO.
lbs Paris, Marshall and Sabine Pass Road
Ordered Sold—A Strike Arbitrated.
After a New Line.
E\oi,e Pass, Tcx., March 2fi.—Mr. 0. P.
Huntington and J. Stuart Maekie, president
and vice presidont of the Mexican Interna-
tional. passed through Ea^'le Pass to-day en
route fur Monterey. It is believed hern that
their visit at this time is significant and, may
result in the acquisition of the Monterey and
Gulf by the Southern Pacific system.
Com Ins: to Houston.
Houston, Tex., March 2V.—The Missouri,
Kansas and Texas special, containing a num-
ber of high officials of the road, which is at
present in Galvoston, will arrive here to-mor-
row morning and will at once proceed as far
as Sealy over the narrow gauge known as the
Texas Western. This move on the part of the
Katy officials is watched with much interest
and carries with it much significance.
It has long been known that it was the inten-
tion of the Katy people to build into Houston
and that the Texas Western is looked upon as
the natural terminus of the road at this point.
The present system of the Missouri, Kansas
and Texas extends as far as Boggy tank, only
a short distance from Sealy, anil a connection
could be easily made. The gauge could be
widened and the road repaired within a short
time. Should this be decided upon it will
greatly benefit Houston as well as the adjoin-
ing country. From parties who claim to
know the doings of the road it was learned
that it was with this idea in view that the trip
was made. Their return to Houston will be
watched with anxiety.
Plenty of Freight.
Houston, Tex., March 26.—Judging from
the amount of loaded cars in the yards of the
Houston East and West Texas it would indi-
cate that the business now being transacted
by that company was of 110 small proportions.
A News man, desiring to investigate tho cause
of this rush of business, saw one of the offi-
cials of the road to-day and had tho situation
"You see," began the official, "of lato there
has been an immense amount of lumber
shipped from oast Texas to supply the de-
mand all over the western states, and our road
being in close proximity to the lumber regions
of the state naturally gets a share of the ship-
ments. We have nothing to complain of.
Times are good and we are keeping up with
the procession in the way of hauling freights."
Hempstead Wants a New Line.
Hempstead, Tex., March27.—A preliminary
consultation was held here yesterday evening
for the purpose of making an effort to induce
the projectors of the contemplated railway
surveyed from Velaseo to Rosenberg, which

the line in thio direction. Financial encour-
agement will bo forthcoming should such be
the case. A mass meeting has been called to
take place on Tuesday evening next to take
llijy Stock Shipments.
Houston, Tex., March 20.—The shipments
of stock to Chicago and other places in the

Ou the 30th and 31st of March the Southern
oil mill company will send out two large ship-
ments to Chicago, and on the 29th the mer-
chants' and planters' oil mill of this city will
forward a large lot. Several thousand head
are being fattened here on cotton seed hulls,
and will be ready to ship withm a short time.
In the City.
Houston, Tex., March 26.—D. B. Robinson,
a prominent railroad man, was in tho city to-
day in the interest of tho reorganization com-
mittee of the San Antonio and Aransas Pass
road. Mr. Robinson is representing tho in-
terests looking to release the road from the
hands of the recoivers, and should it be done
he will occupy a high official position in the
management of the road.
Restraining a Railroad.
New York, March 26.—Justice Truax of the
supreme court on application of Banco Inter-
nacionale Hippolacario de Mexico has
granted an injunction restraining the Monte-
rey and Mexican Gulf railroad company from
collecting or receiving any debt on demands
and from paying, delivering or transferring
any money, property or assets of the com-
Winnipeg, Man., March 27.—The commit-
tee to which the differences in dispute between
the Canadian Pacific railway company and
the trainmen was referred for adjustment has
made a report. The finding of the committee,
which is a compromise, has been accepted by
both the company and the men.

returned from interviewing the railroad com-
mission on the subject of the Rio Grande and
Point Isabel railroad charges on brick for
shipment by schooner to Quintana and Ve-
Houston Headlight Flashes.

accompanied by Private Secretary Jones,

San Antonio, Tex., March 27.—C. P. Hunt-
ington, president of tho Southern Pacific, and
the party accompanying him, left this morn-
ing for the west to inspect Pecos high bridge.
Negro Section Hands.
Templb, Tex., March 26.—Tho Santa Fe
•ection shops have substituted in place of ten
or twelve white hands the same number of
of accidents from numberless other lines
which had fallen across them. To-night this
city is in darkness, owing to the electric light
current being turned off. The Western
Union company did not have a wire
working out of Omaha. All service to Omaha
was conducted by special messenger from
C ouncil Bluffs. The storm appears to have
been local, as no trouble was experienced
twenty miles away. The damage is not yot
WENT BY TRAIN LOADS.
Thousands of Excursionists Journey
Hear Sam Jones Proacli.
Hempstead, Tex., March 27.—An extra
train which started from Bryan at 7 o'clock
this morning pulled into this station with
eight coaches crowded full of people destined
for Brenham to hear Sam Jones, the evangel-
ist. Hie railroad superintendent ordered an-
other coach hitched on to accommodate the
Hempstead crowd, and pulled out with 700
passengers. Conductor Nick Darrow was
commander in chief, while tho veteran C. B.
Chase held down the throttle valve of loco-
motive No. 11.
The News correspondent followed on the
mail train one hour afterward and saw tho de-
mand for The News. The supply was soon
exhausted at Brenham. The full, able and ac-
curate report of tho sermons by the local re-
porter of The News have made Brenham and
Sam Jones famous in Texas. The general
sentiment and verdict of the public seems to
be that the printed sermons are more con-
vincing in saving sinners than the words ex-
pounded from the pulpit.
That Sam Jones has accomplished much
good among his auditors is conceded even by
those who otherwise condemn his methods.
The Santa Fo railway also started an extra
train from Temple and added about 800 more
visitors to hear tho evangelist. When they
got there the fun began. The people of
Brenham had not prepared for such a crowd:
all the grocery stores wore closed and.
the food supply thus shut off, but the enter-
prising and hospitable people of the city
remedied tho threatened famino very rapidly,
Many visitors brought lunchos in their coat
pockets and also homeopathic doses of lire
water, knowing that a supply would bo hard to
get while Brenham was in a state of siege.
The return train to Bryan passed hore at 11.10
to-night with a big crowd of excursionists
completely tired out with travel.

intermixture with white settlers would result
and the abolishment of the ration system and
the distribution of money owed by the govern-
ment where possible. The platform also de-
clares that legal marriages should be insisted
upon and the/sales of women prohibited, and
condemns the theatrical exhibition of Indians
in savage costumes.
Terrible Cruelty to Laborers.
Lyons, Ky., March 26.—George Howbray
tells a story of the terrible cruelty to laborers
of the Adiondack and St. Lawrence rail-
road. He was a white laborer and owned a
shanty, in which he and a lot of negroos and
Italians were quartered, was burned and four
negroes were burned to death. Their fare was
sour bread, molasses and salt pork. Four
white men and 100 negroos decided to escape.
The guard, who interfered, was felled to the
ground. About a dozen of the guard began
tiring. Two of the negroes were killed and
two were wounded. One thousand negroes
were brought here from Alabama a oouplo of
The Great Omaha Storm.
Omaha, Neb., March 27.—Telegraph men
were busy all night repairing the damago
clone by the severe snow storm
of yesterday. Eighty wires leading
to the Western Union telegraph office
were useless. The entire telephone system
was laid up and all other electric companies
of the city were in a similar predicament.
The lines of the motor company and electric
light companies were in running order
but tho currents were shut cit £ax tear

Sam Jones Refers to Houston's Egg En-
tertainment— N otes.
Bkenham, Tex., March 27.—Yesterday after-
noon George Van Hutton, a 17-year-old boy,
fell out of a tree, a distance of twenty-five
feet. Ho was picked up insensible and carried
home. Though badly bruised and consider-
ably scratched up, ho was not othorwiso hurt.
The city eloction which will tako place on
tho first Tuesday in April bids fair to be a
little moro interesting than was at first thought,
in that, thero will be a race for marshal. The
present incumbent, T. L. Swain, is in the
field, and in a local paper to-day is the an-
nouncement of C. C. Boyd for marshal. Boyd
is the constable of this precinct.
In the mayor's court yestorday Minnie Will-
iams, one of the denizens of the acre, was
fined $1 for being drunk and disorderly.
While Sam Jones was preaching this morn-
ing he referred to the egg incident in Houston.
A man present, who was making himself par-
ticularly disagreeable, stated in an undertone
to several sitting around him that he was one
of them who threw the eggs. A bystander re-
marked that ho didn't think it would be
healthy for him to say that when ho went home
to Houston if the good people of that place
respect Sam Jones as the Brenhamites do,
and he had better not state it too loud here,
A negro came in yesterday and stated thai a
man lay dying down the railroad track, half a
mile; that he had been lying there all day,
groaning and calling for water. Tho dying
man proved to be only a drunken section

Crowds Flocking to the New Lands to be
El Reno, Ok., March 27.—[Special.]—The
situation in El Reno is changed only by an in-
crease in the excitement, pending tho opening
of the new lands. Every manner
of man is hore, from the big
gambler from Deadwood to the big capitalist
from Now York and eastern states with his
favorite scheme to gobble tho prizes in
the opening country, and each seems to be
in constant and close communication with
somebody in Washington, who is anybody
and nobody from President Harrison down to
the errand boy in tho interior department,
and who keeps his local friends
posted as to what will surely happen,
as he learns from the inside. Tho most start-
ling scheme developed was the scheme of
some Oklahoma land lawyer, who says that
the sooner clause does not apply to lands
lying south of the South Canadian river.
Upon this statement many hundreds of
boomers pullod for the Washita valley ana
others were preparing to go when a telegram
from Hon. John. W. Noblo was received, stat-
ing that the "sooner" clause would be en-
forced. Just now the waiting crowd is unde-
The liock Island put on an extra train ser-
vice and every train rolls in crowded to the
stops. The courthouse and all public build-
ings have been thrown open and filled
with cots to accommodate the sleepy crowd.
Already every nook and corner is being filled.
Surveying parties are making up to survey
the county seat townsites and will go out in a
few days. Inspector Wcigel is hore.
William Henry Huddle.
Austin, Tex., March 27.—Seldom have a
people a harder task to perform than that laid
upon the citizens of Austin ou Thursday
afternoon, when they buriod William Henry
Huddle. No man of her population was
nearer the people of Austin tlrnn Mr. Huddle.
Bravo, courageous, simple and affectionate,
his friends—his personal friends—belonged to
all classes of socicty, to all the walksof life, for
in his conception of life ho recognized no dis-
tinctions—all wore brothers. Ho hated a lie and
worshiped the truth. Strong in his convict ions
of right and dauntless in his performance of
duty, yet ho possessed a heart full of swoet
charity, and to hide the faults he saw in others
was one of his characteristics. Np wonder
then the people loved him. A simple man of
nature was Huddle, and he lovod his mother
nature with a child's affection and gave to her
and her laws his entire devotion. Heaven
now has claimed him. Earth has lost him.
but he lives in the love and admiration of all
who knew him.
On Friday, the 18th instant, Mr. Huddle was
at work in his studio when he was stricken
down with paralysis. During Sunday and
Monday there were times when his waiting
friends found some faint hope in his symptoms,
still the dread malady kept its course and on
Wednesday afternoon at 5 o'clock Mr. Huddle
was dead. Born in Wythe county in the state
of Virginia, February 12, 1848, ho was the
youngest son of F. M. and Mrs. S. G. Huddie.
This family early in his life moved to Texas
and when the late war came on Huddle, fol-
lowing the dictates of his generous
nature, volunteered, and soon under
Forrest he became a brave aud noted
cavalryman, trusted and loved by his chief,
Ho followed ,the fortunes of the confederacy
until the drop curtain came down on the
dreadful scene at Appomattox, when he re-
turned to Texas. He made Austin his home
in 1876, and since that time devoted his entire
time to the study of art, spending many
months in New York and Germany in the pur-
suit of his studies. His portraits of the
presidents and governors of Texas hang in the
capitol now, and his "Surrender of
Santa Anna" is the chief at-
traction of the granite building. He died
with his careor as an artist but begun. He
was preparing to go to Holland with his fami-
ily,to be gono two years,when ho was to return
to America and locate in Chicago. What he
has done, however, has the stamp of genius on
it and will make him known as long as Texas
has a history.
Mr. Huddle leaves to mourn his loss a noblo
wife, nee Miss Nannie Carver, an interesting
babe, an aged father and a devoted brother,
who are joined in thoir sorrow by hundreds of
friends whose love for noble Huddle will never

Washington, March 27.—Dr. W. I. Walfrie,
examining surgeon in the pension office, died
suddenly yestorday of apoplexy. He resided
on his farm in Prince Georgo county, Mary-
land, and was accustomed to travel daily be-
tween this city and home. Shortly before
the arrival of the train at this city he went
into the closet and was found tiiere dead by a
brakeinanl Deceased was a cousin of Mrs.
Governor Sherman and Secretary Blaine, be-
ing rolated to the Gillespio family.

well known as editor of tho Kansas City
Times, died this evening.

GRAY'S WITHDRAWAL DEMANDED.
Ninety Per Cent of Indiana Democrats
Indianapolis, March 27.—The Indianapolis
Sentinel, which has heretofore supported Gov-
ernor Gray, will to-morrow morning demand
that he withdraw from tho presidential race in
favor of Cleveland. Its editorial on the sub-
ject will say:
"The Sentinel has taken special pains to as-
certain the drift of democratic opinion
throughout Indiana on the presidential ques-
tion and has discovered that it is overwhelming-
ly for Cleveland. Taking the stato through
it is a modest estimate aud says that 75 per
cent are in favor of Cleveland as against
the field, and that 90 per cent
are for him as against anybody but
ex-Governor Gray. This being the fact, ex-
Governor Gray certainly owes it to himself
and to the party which has so highly honored
him in the past, to relieve the situation of
the embarrassment which his presidential
Governor Gray?s single chance of securing
the nomination is as Cleveland's legatee.
Philanthropy for Poor Lo.
Philadelphia, Pa., March 26.—A meeting
for the discussion of the Indian question was
held here to-night on call of a number of citi-
zens interested in the work of educating that
race. The speakers of the evening were Sena-
tor R. F. Pettigrew of South Dakota, Con-
gressman Marriott F. Brosius of Pennsyl-
vania, C. F. Warner of Missouri and Bishop
Tolbert of Wyoming. The platform proposed
advocates the privileges of native born
citizens to all Indians born in the United
States; recommends the abandonment of the
reservation and tribal life, and the education
of Indian children either by persuasion or
compulsions advises the purchase of onculti-

that she has written a letter to a friend stating
that she could no longer live with
her husband on account of his
cruel treatment of her. A dispatch from Bos-

ing to say whether there had been an es-
trangement between Mr. Collier and hia wife.
Why the Church Survives.
Baltimohe, Md., March 27.—In the course
of a sermon to-day by Cardinal Gibbons, he
dwelt upon the reason given by Historian
Gibbon for tho growth and development of
Christianity. Cardinal Gibbons said in part:
"To the philosophic mind as well as to the
Christian thero romains but one adequate
cause to account for the growth and continuity
of Christianity in the face of the obstacles
which have confronted her. If tho church
h as survived it is in obedience to the decrees
of God, who has said 'that the gates of hell
shall not prevail against her.'
"Gamaliel therefore was right when he said:
'If this work (tho church of Christ) be of men
it will come to naught, but if it be of God you
can not overthrow it.' "
of the Party May Challenge a Half

attitude of dignified silence which he con-
tinues to preserve Mr. J. Coleman Dray-
ton has succeeded in withdrawing him.
self almost entirely from the imbroglio
hitherto known as the Drayton-Burrowe
affair. The fight is now confined to the Bur-
rowe camp, and if Mr. Drayton will only keep
silent awhile longer, and give his enemies
full lioense, they may exterminate each
other. Complications have arisen between
Burrowe and his seconds and the Duko de
Morny which only tho most detailed explana-
tions or the shedding of much aristo-
cratic blood can wipe out. Harry
Vane Millbank especially thirsts for
gore and he threatens to call
out both the'duke de Morny and Reporter
Fox if they do not explain their action in disa-
greeing with him about the text and publica-
tion of the Drayton-Burrowe correspondence.
Millbak declares that the letter con-
taining his statement of a hypothetical
case has been published in a garbled form
and says tho duko had no right to give that
letter out, anyhow. He has cablod to the
duke demanding an explanation, asking at the
same time for a literal copy of tho letter.
If the duke persists in saying that the hypo-
thetical case as presented in the newspapers is
correct as it was given to him, Millbank will
consider that he has been affronted
and will challenge the juror of
honor. Burrowe and Millbank in
their formal statement given to the press de-
clared positively that each of them was in ut-
ter ignorance that any publication of the cor-
respondence had taken place, aud they em-
phatically condemned the breach of
raith by whomsoever had published
tho letters. That assertion by Messrs. Bur-
rowe and Millbank is flatly contradicted iu a
statement made in London yesterday by ex-re-
porter Edward Fox, one of Burrowe's seconds,
who said that tho original statement with the
correspondence was practically edited by Bur-
rowe ana Millbank prior to their departure
from England, and nothing was made public
of which they were not fully cognizant. When
shown Fox's cabled statement Millbank de-
clared hotly: "Fox is a liar if he says I was partv
to the publication of that correspondence."
Millbank cabled Fox know if it was true
that he had given the correspondence to the
jress, and received a reply in the affirmative.
Tox said that Colonel Tom Ochiltree came to
him and told him that a New York newspaper
was hunting up the facts in the case and ho
thought it was time to give our side of the
case to the public.
Mr. Millbank has again cabled
Fox, asking if ne really
said that Burrowe and Millbank were parties
to the publication of the correspondence. It
depends on the nature of Fox's answer
whether tho lattor will be included
among the rapidly swelling list
of the possible ^ adversaries of the
sanguinary Harry Vano Millbank, If Fox
reiterates his statement, Millbank, it is de-
clared, will promptly issue a cartel.
Truck Store Law.
Springfield, 111., March 27.—[Special.!—
The anti-truck store law, enacted by the last
legislators in the interest of coal miners, will
hereafter be a dead letter. The Illinois
supreme court to-day declared it unconstitu-
tional. The court holds in substance that the
legislature has no right to pass a law that takes
away the power of oontract. It is also held
that the anti-truok law is class legislation and
is unconstitutional on that ground, if for no
other reason. Tho case passed upon by the
court was that of Frorer et al. vs. tho
People. Frorer and others, doing busi-
ness under the firm name of the
Panama coal company, were charged with vio-
lating the law by keeping a so-called "truck
store." The law makes it unlawful for any
person, company, corporation or association
engaged in any mining or manufactur-
ing business to be interested in any
way in any "truck store" or
'controlling anv store, shop or scheme for
the furnishing of supplies, tools, clothing, pro-
visions or groceries to his, its or their em-
ployes while so engagod in mining or manu-
Ohurch Circles Shocked.
New York, March 27.—[Special.]—Church
circles in Brooklyn were very much shocked
to-day when they learned that the wife of the

that she had been driven away by his cruelty.
