a rumpus that promises to assume con
siderable proportions.
This morning rr. H. B. Cummins, the

to If. Carr' In which he dpmanded that

Dr. Cummins proposes to follow up his
dsmand by giving a thorough ventilation
of the whole affair, Including all of the
facta connected with the Investigation, and

Fix or eight Lincoln men responded to an
anonymous Invjtattpn to ba present at a
meeting-to lx held' at the Young Men's
Christian association this noon to discuss
ihe propriety of tha appointment of James
lelehanty as warden of the penitentiary.
No other action was taken by those present
than to tqrm an organization to Investigate
the charges against tha newly appointed
warden, to ask men who have first knowl
edge of his fitness or unfitness for the
plaoa to . testify before tha organization,
that It might b able to lay Its findings
befora the ovrnor, thereby either proving
tha rumors on' Mr. Delehanty or exoner

to aea If first hand, testimony could be se
cured, which committee will call a second

Mr. Hyde, Frank A. Harrison, and for a
few moments. Rev. A. L. Weatherly.
Mr. Cordner announced that he had sent
out the Invitations, but since he found that
thoae to whom the requests for attendance
were sent were not Ukely to appear unless
the circular bore a signature, he whined
that he had signed his name, that he had
nothing to conceal. He stated that he had

CHIHUAHUA, Mexico, Dee. 19 (Via El
Paso, Tex., Dec. 20.) It was learned today
that General Navarro failed to capture
Malpaso, despite previous reports from
Mexico City to that effect. Losses on both
sides during the two days' fighting are
reported to have been heavy.
The troop train which left here Saturday
night with soldiers Is said to have failed
to form the proposed Juncture with Na
varro. The train is said to have been
fired upon and many government troops
killed and wounded. It was reported to
night that sixty wounded would be brought
to this city. The train was fired on near
San Andres and returned to Bustlllos,
where the engine is reported to have run
out of water, with none near to replenish
the supply. The troop train which was to
have been taken out of here today by Ad
jutant Smith, an American, did not start.
The passenger train which was held up
near La Junta last Thursday has not been
heard from. Generol Navarro encountered
the Insurrectos at Pedernales and Mal
paso !ast Thursday, and by ntfchlfH'l
seemed to have the fight won. He has
since reported that the Insurgents brought
In reinforcements In swarms and estimated
them o number as high as I.0"0 on Friday.
The next day Navarro seems to have
been uraVle to hold bis advantage of the

that he baa not claimed a victory since

the body of Gabriel Peyton, an aged farmer
living several miles north of Callaway,
was partially devoured by hogs during the

to the hog yard and was there overcome
by heart failure or something of a like
nature. When discovered by his son, Pey
ton's body was almost a skeleton, hogs
having eaten all the flesh from the knees
up. It is hardly probable Peyton was at
