Laredo, Tex., Ang. 11.—The rumor that the Garza revolutionists were con centrating in this section originated in the rendezous of the forty-first Vaqneros at La Gata in Encraal county, where Catarhurearza organized liis band of revolutionists in December, 1891. The stock hunters were sent out by large stockraisers in Webb and Encinal comi ties to gather up scattered stock, which has been made practicable by heavy rains which have fallen throughout this section. This information i3 reliable, and any reports or rumors about the gathering of Garza revolutionists on this part of the Rio Grande frontier is with out foundation. J A Noted Murder Case Witness. Montevista, Col., Aug. 11.—P. J. Sheridan, a farmer, living thirty miles north of town, while driving through his gate with a hay-rack, was crushed between the post and hay-rack. Several ribs were broken, and it is thought he cannot live.

He has been offered large sums of money to go to England and testify as to what he knew of the celebrated murder, but he has steadfastly refused. Memphis, Aug. 11.—The indignation against Governor Buchanan for com muting King’s sentence found vent in hanging and burning his effigy at the corner of Main and Madison streets. The crowd was composed, hot of toughs and street arabs, but of well clad, unus ually orderly and respectable young men. When the figure burned in two and the lower half fell to the ground, the crowd vented its wrath by kicking the burning embers about the streets. The governor was cursed and abused with every contemptuous epithet imag inable. The publication of the gover- nor’sreasons has only added to the gen eral indignation. That he should review the case and pass judgmeut oh the jury's trip to Arkansas and pronounce that the judge had eried in refusing a change of venue after the supreme court and the federal court, had passed'on.these very matters, is characterized as the grossest presump- ■ tion and impudence. ."Would Have I/rnclied Kins’. There is little doubt now but that King would have been lynched had he not been so hastily smuggled out of town, and the mo3t conservative citizens were heard regretting that so laudable a purpose had been frustrated. Men who are opposed to lynching be fore a trial, openly say that when a gov ernor, against public morals, sets aside the verdicts of the courts, that justice can only be obtained by uibbvlaW, and that it would be a fitting rebuke to the governor for his action. Loyal as this people has been to Gro ver Cleveland, he is criticised very se verely for the letter he wrote Mrs. White, the niece of Colonel King, and which was laid before the governor; and Senator Harris has very few.friends left on account of the active part lie lias taken in the matter. Nothing in many years has so stirred up public indignation at the escape of King from the gallows. The public is as a tiger I On Gladstone** Policy, a» Indicated in Recent Speeches—-The Queen's Call.

Fort Worth, Aug. 11.—The Daily Gazette has been forced to suspend pub lication for two or three days.

The printers demanded a full weekly payment, and The Gazette refused to accede, saying It was impos sible. The typos walked out to a man. The office ordered the doors locked and wired to Kansas City for a force of non- uion men. The Kolb Men Found Officer* Tamper- iiiS witli the ISallot lioxes. St. Louis, Ang. 11.—A Birmingham, Ala., dispatch says: Rockford, the county seat of Coosa county, is in a panic. 'The conntv went for Kolb on election, and the Kolb men assert that they caught Jones, probate judge and sheriff, tampering with the boxe3 after they had been returned to the court house, by which their majority was reduced. Wednesday one hundred armed Kolb men marched into town and declared their intention of killing the probate judge, sheriff and circuit clerk, who constituted a returning board, and declared vengeance on all Jones men. The sheriff summoned a posse and a riot was prevented. The mob declared their purpose of returning Monday next pre pared. to execute their wjll. long count on the support of either of the Irish parties. While he ignored Redmond’s question, it is doubtful whether the assurances given to Mc Carthy will be satisfying to the National ists either in Ireland or America. ? The Chronicle says: "We doubt whether tiie oration deliv ered by Gladstone will berauked among his’ finest efforts. It is only when he stands at bay that lii3 oratorical genius soars to its highest flights. Yet it was a masterpiece of adroit allusiveness. Everybody knew that while he dealt laboriously with the speech-- of Goschen and McCarthy, it was only Redmond’s demands that troubled him, and he solved the problem with consummate skill and dexterity. Nobody, can say that he ignored Redmond, yet nobody can say that he even once recognized his existence.” > The-Chronicle contends that the most important passage in the speech was the promise to proceed with the -Newcastle program, even if the house of lords re jected the home .rule bill. "Nothing else.” The Chronicle says" "is wanted to whip up English opinion in favor o( home rule hut the obstinate refusal of Murdered Attempt.* Revenge.- Man Exciting Scene in an Arizona Mir Court Room. the peers to deal with the matter in a prudent spirit.’" ‘ To Head Uie New Government. London. Aug. 11 — Mr. Gladstone has received a communication from Sir Henry Ponsonby, private secretary to the queen, announcing that arrange ments were beiug made for a reception Friday at Osborne -house. the queen’s residence ou the Isle of Wight. The object of the queen in summoning Mr. Gladstone is to entrust him with the formation of a new government. Lord Salisbury is expected at Osborne boast to tender the resignation ‘of the present government upon the adoption by the. bouse of commons of a "no-confidence” amendment to the address in replV tc the queen’s speech. GOVERNOR TILLMAN’S STRENGTH. is He Will Press She.ppard Close Even Hfs St^oasliold. Charleston, Ang. 11.—There is very little doubt now that the reform wing of the Charleston Democracy will be al most solid for Governor Tillman and re form. The announcement of Chairman T. D. Jervey, of the reform committee, of his adhesion to the Tillman cause is followed by the announcement of Wil son G. Harvey, Jr., the secretary of the same committee, that all the reform candidates for the legislature were Till man men, and the further statement of M.'F. Kennedy, a prominent reformer, that all the reform clubs’ were Tillman clubs, that Tillman meant reform if it meant anything, and that there should be no compromise with the ring. The club meeting at which these speeches were made, elected two delegates to the state convention, one a Tillmanite arid the other a Sheppardite. A great many people who labored under the impres sion that state, politics would not enter into the Democratic fight in Charleston are awakening to the fact that this whs a mistake. It begins to look now a3 if Governor Tillman will give Sheppard a close race even in Charleston, the bead center of ring rule. * diaries Against an Official.
