Tlio Dark Horjc

tions 1 Can your friends pledge you
to withdraw if you should not have a ma-
jority of the convention and 2 Can your
friends pledge you as in favor of a rail-
road commission and if so to what ex-
tent will you limit a commissions power
Mr Hoggs reply is to the effect that
ho bolieves the policy of the railroads and
speculators will bo to lock the conven-

matters until after the pressure of court
matters has been relaxed but when I
do he continues it will be In plain

your first question Can your friends
pledge you to withdraw if you should not
have a majority of the convention I
have to say that when it is ascertained
by a fair test in the convention that I
have not a majority my friends will be
authorized to withdraw my name

What Keccnt movements nf the Alllanco
and Wlioel Mean
These dispatches this morning con-
tained a brief report of the outcome of a
recent conference In Dallas between the
executive committee of the State farm-
ers Alliance and the Agricultural Wheel
the gist of which to recapitulate was
that the two bodies had agreed to con-
solidate and secure a charter under the
Farmers Alliance and Industrial Union
of America acceptance on the
part of the Alliance being sub-
ject to the action of the
county Alliances The representatives
present at this conference were for tho
Alliance Dr J D Fields president-
S O Dawes secretary and B 1
Kendrick B F Roger and J D Cun-
ningham of tho executive committee
and for tho Wheel T J Anderson
president T B Clark D C White
man W G Moore and J P Messiok of
tho executive committee Harry Tracy
national lecturer and a few others
An attache The Gazettes bureau has
been investigating these proceedings
has interviewed several gentlemen who
could throw light on tho matter and has
learned something of its inside historyas
C W Macuno now of Washington is
the leading spirit of this St Louis organ-
ization which was formed last Decem-
ber Hi strustv Alliance lieutenants m
Texas are Bon Terrell Htxny Tracy and
Evan Jones But his ideas and policy
are not supported on tho contrary tire
Rogers and Cunningham nf thn Alliance
executive committee they believ-
ing that nil his movements aud
those of bis Texas lieutenants are
in tho interest of a third party movement
in Texas as elsewhere Ban Terrell
who is now lecturing in Texas and mak-
ing abuse of tho press one of his main
texts is just from Alabama where he is
said to have mado sad havoc among
Deraocratio farmers by his peculiar do
litical commercial aud labor tenets
Messrs Rogers Armstrong etalare
not in favor of grafting the peculiar
tenets of Messrs Terrell Tracy and Ma
oune upon tha Texas Alliance but know-
ing the strength of the Macune steerers
in Texas they are moving cautiously It
was for this reason they agreed to sub-
mit the matter for consolidation upon the
basl3 of the St Louis movement to tho
county Alliances Before doing eo how-
ever thoy demanded surrender of
the whole charter signed by Evan
Jones as president of tho Farmers Alli
English among other things for the j auCe and Industrial Union which ottloo
ndoption of tho amendment and a com be probably holds aud most probably
mission dont according to Mr B F Rogers
Mr Throckmortons reply is to the ideas There is doubt of the validity of
hat surrendered charter The Wheel
1 had previously surrendered its regular
charter to the Foimers and Laborers
1 union of America and henco this last
1 surrender leaves tho Wheel hanging
j without charter on ti 0 ragged edge of
1 suspense pending the action of the
county Allance3
j This being about the shape of affairs
congenial to the tastes of Messrs Rogers
Cunninghamand the others who do not
want any third party in theirs they now
propose to inaugurate a most vigorous
campaign against Ben Terrell Harry
Tracy and other Macufio workers to
prevent tho consolidation on the St
thus not weaken its reform elements
The gentlemen named are among those
who opposed ZJacunes commercial
methods and his celebrated uinthof
Juno collection in his efforts to keep
what was known or the Alliance exchange
afloat Ben Terrell Harry Tracy Evan
Jones etc ar among tho leaders who
helped Macune in that peculiar proce-
dure Tho Demooratio elements
in the Alliance seem now to bo a
little wide awake and not disposed to al-
low a few ambitious leaders to lead the
rauk and file into anv mora absurdities
Some lively developments ore tho closing

Ftate of Affairs There
Editor Gazette
Upon returning from Aurora my attention was
directed to an article In th a Evening Mill of
Saturday and one in tha Sanday Gazstxb that
places ni8 incorrectly before the pnblic This
has grown oat of a misapprehension of tbo con-
ference with Dr Broilcs upon the part of tha
Mall and The Gazettes report purportinc to
bo predicated npon the article in tho Mail
My connection with the matter Is as follows
The medicil profession and people of Aurora
requested ma to visit their village before Thb
Gazetth or people in Fort Worth knew of any
unusual disease prevailing at that place These
requests were repeated daily until Friday last
when I received ceveral pages of telegraph mat-
ter urging me to coma to their relief Late ia
tho evening cf Friday I telephoned Aurora
when Mr Barr a druggist said to me that
the state of affairs was deplorable in the ex-
treme that he wa3 the only druggist on duty
Dr Bobo was sick Dr Burch was confined with
two sick children one of whom was likely to dio
during the night and Dr Roark was taxed
almost beyond human endurance the people
were panic stricken and leaving daily for other
Thursday Dr Broiles told mo that he had re-
ceived word that matters were very unpleasant
at Aurora and that he had been requested to
send nurses to the relief of tho people Bearing
this in mind I wrote a note to Dr Broiles ep
Itomizingthe information I had received and
stated that I was endeavoring to arrange for my
home patients in order to reach Aurora by tho
midnight freight train which I did and that
when 1 became familiar with the neeci3 of our
neighbors at the stricken point would let him
know their wants
After arriving at Aurora I did not recognize
any aid that oar people dould render so did not
communicate with Dr Broiles on the morning
of my arrival Daring the evening of Saturday
t Dr Broiles telephoned to me inquiring about
the needs of the sick I referred tho matter to
Dr Roark He asked for two nurses for tho El-
liott familywhich I am glad to say Dr Broiles
secured and two brave volunteers are now at
tho post of duty
Two night3 and days at Anrora places me in
position to speak withsome degree of knowledge
i of the state of affairs at that place I have a
d iagram showing the relative location of each
house in the place wherein the disease has mado
its appearance sinco the date that Jefferson
with the light of heaven forever darkened to him
and toes sloughing from his feet reached the
Jefferson residence to the moment that bright
Charlie the son of tho noble Dr Burch was so
suddenly torn from his once happy household
j I did not order property burned bonfires upon
the square or burning of sulphur The people
had prepared for this before my arrival I sug-
gested that as the disease was confined to threo
adjoining blocks especial attention be directed
to these blocks In the rear of the stores of the
middle block could be seen an accumulation of
chip3 and the usual debris common to the rear
of stores in couutry villages To this work tho
few well people who remained in the village
willingly turned and labored throughout the
night with commendable industry
It is interesting to note that on the 28th of
January IbiK Janes Jefferson and his mother
arrived at Aurora from the Indian Territory
and stopped at he Jeffc son residence the
formei sightless and toeless tho result of a
disase which had led his mother to go to tho
3 erritory for him The mother had been in
Aurora only a few days when she was called to
Azle on account of the sickness of another son
William Jelfarson On hsr way thither she be-
came very ill and was obliged to stop at Dr
Gordon8 near Azle where she died It is in-
teresting to note that wo en Mrs Jefferson and
her son arrived at Auror 1 the valise of the
maimed efferson by mistake was taken to the
Deerberry house and that it remained there six
days This mistake was not discovered until
Mrs Landers a guest of the Deerberry
house began preparation for departuro
to her home near Sunset Mrs Landers
arrived at Sunset nnd died two days
after leaving Aurora the first victim of the
Deerberry house Ju3t after Mr3 Landers
departed Miss P Roberts an inmate cf the
Deerberry house was taken very ill She wa3
removed to the home of her mother in the north
part of the town but proved to be tho second
victim of thn Decrberrv house The Elliott
family were at this samo house and on Feb-
ruary 8 or 10 the two sons Cam and Zeb wcro
taken sick They were removed two miles into
tho country where their mother was also
stricken shortly afterward Opposite the Deer
j berry bouse across the street lives Dr Burch
I Two of bis sons were seized within an hour
It was stated to me that after the arrival of
I Jefferson and hi3 mother the bed clothing upon
which his wife and child died in the Territory
j were hung upon a line at the corner of the resi-
dence that it was the custom of Clements and
Watkins who were seized with the disease on
the 10th or 12th of February and died at tha
southwest corner of the square within 103 feet of
each other td visit daily the stable situated in
front of the residenco forty or fifty feet west of
tho store in which Watkins was cozed lives Mrs
Covey whoso daughter is now sick and whose
mother taken subsequently to the daughter
died within twenty hours from the onset of tho
disease young Deerberry whose place of busi-
ness was near the southwest corner of the
square was an early victim perhaps the first
he slept at the Deerberry house
The physicians are uncertain about this last
case so I exclude it There i3 also an uncer-
tainly in regardto Mr Freylan who had slight
illness about the same time that Mr Deerberry
was sick He was seen at church and after-
wards seated upon soma lumber near the clothes
1 line upon which Jeffersons bedclothing was
j still floating with the breezeon the Sunday pro
j vious to the Friday on which day he was seized
Now if information which I am at present
seeking for other purposes than the secular
t press shall show that James Jefferson his wife
j and child died with the same disease which has
lately afflicted Aurora the inference will bo too
plain to admit of cavil That the disease is
1 portable that it was Introduced in Aurora by
> the valise person or clothing of tho parties
named This will be further strengthened when
positive information concerning the particulars
of the sickness and death of Mrs Jeffersonnear
Azle and Mrs Landers near Sunset is re-
What is the disease at Aurora This question
j the laity have asked to gratify cariosity or to
back crude opinion upon equally as crudo
knowledge It is a question of interest to tho
physician that he may direct a line of thought
in a correct channel that he may more intelli-
gently adapt therapeutics to pathology
1 Is it typhus fever While ono or two of the
symptoms observed are common to that disease
too many of its symptoms are absent besides
we know that true typhus is rare in this age in
both the old and new world and when intro-
duced into this country from foreign lands as
occurs now and tlren its contagious and fatal
nature is so well recognized that prophylactic

Is it cerebro spinal fever If it i3 four lim

not Thirty years observation in this latitude
and frequent and close observational the largest
medical centers has not furnished him with an
opportunity of seeing the disease he saw and
studied for two nights and days in onr neigh-
boring county In cerebo spinal fever the de-
lirium is active and the mind is pertubed In
the disease at Aurora apart from the slight de-
lirium of the incipient fever the mind is clear
and collected I saw no manifestation or cere-
bral disturbance of an organic nature The El
liotts were mentally undisturbed Miss Coveys
mind wa3 clear as a bell her intelligence and
mental calmness under the severe pain mental
and physical anguish only presented the index
of the sweet disposition which has won for her
among her friends the reputation of being one of
the loveliest of her sex littlo Mack Burch had
no delirium his mind was clear and calm same
condition existed with Miss Peach RobTt3
When sudden apncea respiratory falluroi was
pending in the case of Charlie Burch then car-
bonized blood obtunded his bright bright mind
not disease within the cerebrum membranous
or otherwise There was no rigidity of the cer-
vical muscles in other case than the one men-
tioned and that was due to the lesion of the
spinal cord or its meninges and this was the
lS3icnthat inauced the apncea which extin-
guished his life In some cases thero was a
mulberry rash size of Bpots varying from
that of a pinhead to a silver twentyfive
cent piece This erup ion is seen in
cerebro spinal fever bat often there is a vesicn
ar herpetic or erythematous eruption occurring
ater ia the disease than in the Anrora cases
tins eruption I did not see in a single instanoe
Several of the case at Aurora presented upon
the skin lanre bulls rupial filled with bloody
aerum when broken and collapsed resulted in
sunken darkbrown smooth scabs The bulks
seemed to show a predilection for the knuckles
tho joints of the toes and over the carpal and
tarsal bones This eruption Lhave never seen
nor have I ever read of such dermatoses oc-
curring In cerebrospinal fever
The most important symptoms observed in tho
disease at Auror was the arthritic Joint dis-
ease perl and intra articnlar This is
the prominent symptom l have never
seen nor have I ever read that this lesion was
ever connected with cirebro spinal fever In
the knee joints of two cases I could discover
large effusions of serum or blood and serum
In cerebro spinal fever it is not uncommon for
the eyes to be destroyed by suppurative choroid
itis In two of the Anrora cases Miss R and
one of th Elliotts blindness existed the for-
mer having lost one eye the latter both Jef-
ferson bad in addition to bilateral blindness
joint disease which resulted in a large slough
npon the dorsum of the foot aud the loss of sev-
eral toes In cerebro spinal fever as well as the
Aurora fever hyperesthesia great sensitive
ness of the skin existed I regret that the in
1 lf <
Confectioners to scour their pane
Mechanics to brighten their tools
Painters to clean off surfaces
Cooks to clean the kitchen sink
ments prevented me studying the ocular lesions
as I wished to note if any difference existed be-
tween the eye lesions of the two diseases
The fever at Aurora and cerebro spinal fever
certainly present symptoms common to each
other but there are other symptoms so entirely
different that tomy mind the fever at Aurora
is entitled to separate study Both diseases
surely belong to the acuta infectious maladies
and are to a limited degree contagions They
may prevail raiely however as a cporadic
disease but generaly as an epidemic though
usually limited as to extent of country invaded
and duration of existence in a given locality If
cerebro spinal fever is contngious as stated br
Professor J Lewis tfmith M D in his classical
article npon that subject in the recent work of
Keating and as Professor Btilli alno savs
though not strongly contagious wo must claim
a like limited contagion for a disease so nearly
allied to that disease as the oni which appar-
ently is now waning in an adjoining county
Wo may infer that tho diseaeo
in question is of iriicrobic origin While its
germ has not yet been isolated and experi
raenta ly cultivated reasoning by analogy we
may conclude that its nature is such Those
diseases wh ch science has proved to be due to
micro organisms have certain concomitants
curves crises etc thereby enabling us to sat-
isfactorily determine th tt a like nature crista
in regard to a given disease although its mate
ries morbi has not been demonstrated The
comma bacllus of cholera is now well known
the redshaped bacteria of Khlebs is recognized
whenever the etiology of typhoid fever is under
consideration and that of Friedlander in the
micrococcus of croupous pneumonia These wo
know are essential diseases belong to the
acute infectious class may become epidemic
By tho history nature and analogy mani-
fested by these diseases wa know that tha
disoase in question is of a like class and has cer-
tain attributes in common infectiousness or
contagiousness and epidemical disposition If
it is true that a micrococcus like that of pneu-
monia has been determined as belonging to cere
bro spinal fever this disease and the Aurora
fever being similar in some featuresthough
dissimilar in others we may infer an t lectivo
ness that will confer contagiousness and opide
micity upon ono as well a < upon the other
This disease whatever its undetermined true
nature may be while not so heartrending as
cerebro spinal fever because of the absence of
Berious contortion and delirium in results
perhaps should be more dreaded Six out of
twelve dead and three of tho six living wcro
better if dead What a picture
1 think the nature of the disease at Aurora is
a hemaclytic spin si fever with peri and intra
articular inflammation with effusion homor
rbage into the skin etc
I do not believe the same disease has existed
upon the American continent within seventy
five years Jackson and others between tho
years 1810 and 1815 described the disease under
the term spotted fever A number of papers
upon the disease were read and discussed re-
ferring to it as it prevailed in Massachusetts

The Phenomenal Development of tho Great
Lnmber District of Eastern Texas
Correspondence of the Gazette
Village Mills Tex Feb 25 Your
correspondent has spent a month along
the Sabine and East Texas railroad
among tho saw mills of that section from
Sabino Pass to Rockland At Sabine
Pass he found the shipments of lumber
to all points already aggregating 500 oars
a month or about forty million feet per
annum While everything wore a busy
bustling activity presaaging In the near
future the great shipping point for the
transMlssis3ippi section When we cull
to mind tho fact that only a short time
has elapsed sinoothese lands were placed
on the market at 10 cents an acre it is
difficult to realize that aloug tha line of
this railroad are not less than forty saw-
mills ranging in capacity from thirty
five thousand to ono hundred and fifty
thousand feet per day and that
not long sinco 5600 acres of
this same land brought S260000
When tho writer cams to Texas six
years ago a few hundred men were
employed where now there are thou-
sands There was scarcely a deoent vil-
lage or hamlet alone the line of the
railroad now they can be counted by
the dozen
Tho present county seat of Hardin
soarcely bad an existence and a few
scattered houses dotted tha hillsides
where now stands the town of Coles
minind with 2000 inhabitants Tbern
was ono store at Rotkland and a few
shunties now we have one of the most
active lumber towns in the state
Nacogdoches was a village and New
BirmiuKham had never been heard or
even dreamed of In a few plain words
tho development of this section la glx
1 sufficient lieht and atxenee of sreser iustru 1 short years has been phenomenal
