COMITAN State of Chlapas , Feb. -This
border town Is full of Guatemalan refugees
who are arriving from the south daily by 1
secret routes to avoid being pressel Into the
war service. They report great alarm prevalent -
lent among the aoNa l of the republic of
'Guatemala , especially among the frontiersmen - I
men , over the threatened war with Mexico ,
and say that , the greater part of the army
of 12,000 men now along the border have been I
forced Into service by the Guatemalans. Most
of the refugee arriving at Comlan have
come long distances on foot through a wild
country and are In a very destitute condition .
The problem of taking care of them Js assurn-
big , serious proportions , and , work being
scarce , It Is not known whence can come
the means for their continued support. Many
of them arc willing to enlist In the Mexican
army and fight against their own country If
thereby they can contribute to the overthrow
of the rule of President Darrlos.
Among the refugees just arrived Is a Mox-
icon family namel Valdez , which has been
living for some Imo In Guntemala. The
family consisted of the parents , two sons and
two daughters. In ranking their escape from
the country they were overtaken and the
father and twO sons killed. After being maltreated -
treated the mother and two daughters succeeded -
ceeded In reaching this place nearly dead
with hunger and hnrdshlp. The matter will
be called to the attention of time Mexican government -
ernment , with I request that I demand be
made upon Guatemala for Irdemnly and pun.
Ishment of the offenders , whO , It Is claimed ,
were Guatemalan soldiers. A number of
strategic movements , which have been made
by the Mexican troops within the last few
days have given rico to a rumor that an ad-
vance upon Guatemalan sol has been or-
derod . This Is denied by General Lorenzo
Garcia , who Is In charge of the Tenosqul

German anarchist , Mueller . and thirteen others -
ers , which has been In progress here since

tude fpr life. Drolsch and Bach were sen-
tenced to ten years' Imprisonment ; Vossent

The anarchists were charged with blowing
up the house of the burgomaster of , Liege
on April 22 last , and with attempting to : I
blow up the church of St. Jacques , In this
city. The leader of the gang Jagotskasky ,
alas Darn Steinberg , disappeared after the
burgomaster's house was blown up and was
subsequently arrested by the Russian police.
I Is believed by the anarchists that the
" . " I
baron was an "agent provocte. '
The greatest excitement followed the announcement -
nouncement of the sentences. Bach Indulged
In a furious outburst of rage and launched
a torrent of abuse against the ben b , calling
" " "You
the judges "scum viains" and saying :
have committed judicial murder ; there Is
no justice. " Bach then vaulted over the
dock bar to the court and truck right and
lef After a severe struggle , during which
the spectators were almost panic stricken ,
the anarchist was overpowered and removed
from the courtroom as _ he continued scream-
lug out Insults at the judges. The rest of
the prisoners calmly watched the scene. On
February 6 , during the progress of the trial

by declaring that his companions were not
concerned In any of the explosions with
which his evidence had previously connected

BERLIN , 'Feb. D-Throughout Germany
during the past week the cold has been In-
tense and In several places the thermometers
have registered 20 degrees below . zero , Fahren.
helt. The Rhine , Nccltr and the Main are
frozen over for 10Jg distances and the south
ern part of the CaUegat Is also frozen.
Heavy snow drifts have completely stopped
lrafc about the Eiffel mountains and the
fll'ineland , where the snow Is six feet deep.
Great misery has been caused In many parts
of Germany and numbers of people have been
frozen In the country districts and eve
near Berlin . Railroad trafc Is especially
disorganized. There have been several cases
In which the tires of wheels have broMn on
cold and have thus
account : of the extreme (
caused the derailment of trains.
From AHklrch , Alsace , It Is reported that
wolves , In some cases driven by the extreme
cold , have come to the villages In order to
seek food , and In other provinces the same
occurrence Is recorded.
Steamers lave experenced the greatest
dlfcuHy In forcing their way through tile
blocks of lco along the coast and the mails
rom Klel to Koseer , Iceland , were suspended
toda1. ,
For some tm past the distinct feeling of ,
animosity towar Great Britain has been
evidenced by a large seton of the German
press , and the Elbe disaster las been the
occasion for quite a display of anglophobla.
The Kreuz Zelung led the onslaught with n
highly prejudiced article , In which Il was
claimed that the catastrophe has again
shown that the English have a brutal disregard -
gard for other people's rights , the blame of
the collision , entirely falling . according to
the Kreuz , Zeittg . on the English steamer
Crathle. Other newspapers followed with
severe denunciations of the Crathlc , embellished - :
bclshed with I shower of abuse against
England , and the statement appeared In
some of the newspapers , and remains un-
contradicted , that the emperor , upon receiving -
ceiving full particulars of the collision , char-
actorlzed the conduct of the Orathle"hs ruf-
nanly and Inhuman. .
In the Reichstag this afternoon Baron von
Slumm Halberg Introduced the subject of
the loss of the Elbe by asking the govern-
mont what steps would be taken to prevent
loss of mo and shipwrecks. In so doing , he
expressed. the opinion that the conduct of
thc captain and the crew of the Elbe were ,
Irreproachable. He added that the construc-
ton of ships ought to be supervised by the
state and that the rul of thQ road on the
that . . - . . . , - .
hIgh seas S0UIQ De QennlelY regul eu.
The chancellor , Prince Hohenlohe In replying -
plying , said that the federal governments
were directing attention to the subject of
Insuring the seaworthiness , of ships by state
control , and he hope that all the mercan-
tile nations before next winter would give
effect to the decision arrived a by the international -
ternntonal conference at Washington In 188D
In regard to rules of the road at sea. The
chailcellor also said that the federal governments -
ments shared In the grief of the nation at
the horrible accident which had befallen the
Elbe , adding that the reproaches heaped upon
her ofcers by the foreign press were quite
unfounded. ,
Herr JEb3en national liberal , who Is a
ship owner , objected tD state conlrol' the
construcUon of ships , and proceeded to se-
verely denounce the conduct or. Captain Gor
don , master of the British shIp Crathle.
Herr Singer , socialist , said that the Insur-
ance and technical maritime associations ,
could not aeq\ately Ipervle buld ng ships ,
and , In his opinion , state control of that
work was needed. ' He added that the Imperial -
penal government must also see to the mater
of life-saving appliances and pay no attention
to capitalists , contractors and ship owners.
Dr von DoeUcher , Imperial secretary of
state for tile interior , In reply , said that a
knowledge of the regulations for the pre
venUon of accldent at sea was Incumbent
upon every seanian. In hIs opinIon tie gov-
ernment's proposed supervision ! of ship construction -
slrucUon was the only practical 'ystem.
However , If thIs system was shown to be
faulty , state control would be Introduced { , but
In the meantmo the present couroe should
have a fair tr ! CI.
Lieber that the
Herr expressed the view
male thing waR to secure international regu-
latone for navigation , as selworthlness , ho
added , would not avail a ship when a
British vessel 1 dashed savagely Into her and
ran her down.
To this Dr. von Doelcher added that the
international regulations would come Into
force tn : the autumn. The Crathlc. ho
added , ought to have given war , and In
Germany her master would have been dc-
prlved oC his cntificate.
Baron von Manteufel , conservative , coii-
demne the attitude of GreaL Britain In the ,
matter of the rule of the road , and advocated -
cted state control of ship building and I
reduction ot the rate of speed. '
Baron von Stuinm-Halberg during the
early part oC the week Paid a visit to rrlcco
smarck at Fniednichsruh In order to seek
the veteran stalennan's advice a to the
belt method of pushing the ant.revoluton
bill. But he received cold comfort , for
lrlnce Usmarek declared that the meaure
was a stillborn child , which , while Intended
to rctraln one dangerous element of the ' ,
population , threatened the liberties of all ,
and iieiicevas acceptable to none.

JACKSONVILLE , Fin , Feb. -The full
extent of damage done by the cold wave
throughout F orlda will be hard to estimate
for some days , because reports will be slow
In coming from nil points , besides much will
depend on time weather that follows , during
the next week. After the freeze of Decm ,
ber the weather moderated gradually and I
was fully ten days before the normal teimm-
praturo was restored. This fact probably
saved a large amount ef damage to thc
oranges which would have been IIno by n
sudden warming of the air and exposure to
the hot sun. Advices Cram different sections
of the state in regard to the effect of this
freeze state that the damage Is equal to . I
mt greater than that of the December freeze. I
The area of low temperature has extended as
far south I before and vegetation was not
In as strong I condition to withstand the
: cold as beore.
: To recoup the losses of the orange crop
' many orange growers 'plan led vegetables.
, They had : started vigorous s growth and were
, developing at the pint where thcy could be
[ : most damaged by severe cold. Then came
the second freeze. I appears now that the
vegetable crop of Florida Is an entire loss
Older orange trees throughout the state had
already shown signs of recovery by putting
out a new growth and along the Halifax and
Indian rivers and In the southern portIon oC
the , orange belt hal cone to bloom. As far as
can bo learned this bloom and \ growth
has beln destroyed. I Is usually consIdered
that a budded orange tree will b Injured by
a temperature of 22 degrees continued 'for

NEW YORK , Feb. 9.-hope that thc White

ot la Gascogne were dashed ! to the earth
when the officers of the Teutonic reported
they neither \ saw nor heard of the missing
ship. L Gascogne left Havro on Saturday ,
January 26. With an ordinary speed pasag
she should have ted up at pIer No. 42 , North
river , last Sunday morning. She Is several
days overdue , and thesB last several days on
the Atlantic have been marked by the most
violent storms , gales and hurricanes , by
snow and hal , low temperature and winds
that shIfted' their direction frequently , but
seldom lessened their speed. More than this ,
la Gascogna , from all reports that other vessels -
sels have brought In , and from the data of
the weather bureau , , va ! buffeted by cyclone

100 mIles an hour , almost from her frt day

out.Not one of the ebips which have , put Into
prt here or that have touched at , any"fordign
port . has seen la Gascogne. , From Bermuda ,
and the Azores , from Queenstown and from
Havre the story Is the same. At Ort the
theory entertained by the agents was that
the Gascogne had been temporarily , dIsabled
through I break In the machinery and was
making for the Azores or perhaps sOle of
her own ports under greatly reduced speed.
Yesterday a brand new element was , introduced .
duced Into the mass of conjecture and specu-
laton concerning the movements of her fate
La Gascogne Is out of coaL The suggestion I
that perhaps all this time la , Gascogne had
been fighting a hard fight In the ecth of tie

, choosing a path twenty or thIrty miles south ,

E. G. Dunn , signal officer , said he was of
the opinion that she had drawn so deeply on
her coal supply that when she finally gave
up the contest with the blizzards and had
headed for the Azores , lien speed had to be
kept down to perhaps hal a dozen knots In
hour. Mr. Forget was inclined to Insist that
the ship had coal enough for any emergency ,
but he was greatly interested In the story of
the storm\ TonIght several rumors were
afloat to the effect that la Gascogno had been
sighted ( . but Investigation has In eacb case ,
proven such storIes without f undaton ,
At 11:50 p. m. a steamship was sighed

LINCOLN , Feb. 9.-Special.-It ( ) Is Rtated
today that suit will bo commenced next
Monday by Attorney General Churchill on
the bonds oC ex-Oi Inspector Hilton. There
was conCerence held this arernoon between -
tweet Governor Holcomb , State Auditor
Moore and the attorney general , In which the
case of Hilton was freely cnimvasscd TheY
arrived at the decision that In the abscnc& '
of any IJrlma' fade evidence oC Intent lo do-
fraud the state Hion coulll only be pro- '
cceded against In a cl\1 suit on his , bond.
The absurd claln.set Ul1 by I10n that gaso- '
hue Is not nn iuminatng oil Is laughel' ' at
connected with sfnlo
by every oiflclal the
e\ery ofcial
house. The fact Is pointed out that a : : um-
ben of towns In the state use gasoline for
Illuminating purposes In tim shape or street
laml's. Another Point scored against the
ex-oi Inspector Is his rlglll adherence , to
"preccdent" In collecting the fees for In-
specton of gasoline , ali his utter neglect
of "precedent" In turing these fees over
to the state treasurer. I Is hlntCI that
hilton has so disposed of his funds that h '
is now execution proof , and tilere is considerable -
siderablo speculation as to what has become . ' '
of time money. Ono rumor has it that lie
lost considerable money belongluig to thft
fund in social speculation to a prominent
politician 9t the state , but. according to another -
other rumor some of it tins been put to a
more laudable purpose. The gist of time
latter rumor is to the effect that when
Goverimor Crounse appoInted Hilton oil lnspoc-
tor time goverimor ileld a judgment against
his appointee for the stun of $2,680 , with.
cost of suit and Interest at 10 per cent for
a. term of over four years. In several papers
in the state , reports were about a year ago
printed tii..t 'Hilton was short. in his tic-
counts. Ross Hammond wrote the stnt6
auditor in regard to tue matter. Governor '
Cropimse , it. is said , suggested that he wouhi
notify Hilton to , come to Lincoln pcl settl
up. This was when tue lettet r" 11am-
moild was shown 'tc him by tiio'audltor. Xe
consequce of' this , a few nays. later , en
February 15 , Hilton came to tile state houa'
anti paid $2,000 , mentioned in ills , report' ,
keepizig about $1,100 , with the approval 0 !
the governor , to cover possibie deficiencies
during the remainder of hii term. The
rumor runs , also , to the effect that this
judgment has been discharged , together with
almost five years' interest. ,
