A War on Between the Knights of lJ»bor and the American federation—Several IIlRh-Toned HarrlagOH in New York To- Day— Meeting of the National Silver Committee In St. l.oulg—Celebrating the Centennial of the Marseillaise. SAN ANTONIO , Tex., April 20. —For three years tlio counties of .Starr, Hidalgo, 'Porticas, Seapnta, Mexico and Duval have been subjected to a drouth of such severity as to render the. production of the necessaries of life impossible. The season for planting has passed, and • the early crops having been Willed by frost, there is no hope for relief unless the summer rains should secure a light full crop. * The loss of stock, the depreciation in value of all kinds of property, the inability of the ranchmen 'to procure money for the payment of taxes, the prevalence of smallpox throughout the section extending through San Ignacoio in Seapata county to Rio Grande City in Starr county and the baleful effects of the Garcia revolution combined, have produced a destination hitherto unknown. Some of the people are using the fresh meat of cattle that have died from disease or starvation and others are drying the flesh for future use. The losses of cattle, the principal industry of this section, are estimated at 80 per cent., and in Nueces county alone 00,000 head have died. The famine districts contains a population estimated at 15,000 to 20,000 people, and probably one- fourth, of this number require assistance, while the resources of the balance of • the population arc only adequate to maintain themselves and fauv illcs. The people have appealed to the I state in vain, and another appeal is published signed by the leading citizens and addressed to the public asking for contributions of corn and other supplies to be addressed to the central committee, Starr county, care of I!. E. Munroe, county judge. "Survival of the Fittest." PtTTHirrito, Pa,, April 20. —A morning paper is authority for the statement that within a very short period there will be inaugurated a fight which means the "survival of the fittest" in so far as the American Federation of Labor and the Knights of Labor are concerned. The paper says: These two powerful bodies of organized labor will enter into a combat which will be a lengthy one and quite spirited. It will determine which organization is entitled to supremacy nd from now on thousands of workmen will watch with interest the progress of the contest. Such is the meaning to be conveyed from an interview- had with Henry White, general auditor of the United CI arment Workers of America, which is affiliated with the American Federation of Labor. Mr. White arrived in Pittsburg Sunday, from Rochester, New York where he was working in the interest of the body he represents. Montaua Stock Growers.

MARRIED OVER. of llarrlos will Wife ofltoda. lleeome the NKW YOKK , April 20. — Beneath a magnificent canopy constructed jointly f white cloth, gold, and fragrant flowers, and which has been erected at the north end of the spacious salon in her Fifth avenue mansion, Mtue de Harrios, widow of the late president and dictator of Ouatamala, will tonight become a wife for the second time, taking for her partner in life Senor Martinez Roda, a gallant Spaniard of noble lineage, a statesman and scholar, and at the present time a, member of the Spa nish cortes from the district of Granada. As a matter of fact there will be two services, for as soon as Mayor Grant has performed the civil ceremony the couple will stop out from beneath the canopy and place themselves before a brilliantly lighted altar erected on the other side of the room, and here, according to the rites of the Culhollc church, they will be pronounced man and wife by his grace Archbishop Corrigan. It will be a private wedding, only relatives and a very small number of the bride's intimate friends having been nvlted. There will be no reception. The bride will wear a magnificent gown of pale green and silver, one of the most superb of Worth's creations of recent- years. Her head-dress will be a tiara of diamonds. The aggregate value of the precious stones which will sparkle from her costume will be something in the neighborhood of half million dollars. No wedding of recent years has mused more gossip or talk in upper circles in this city. Phis is due to the romatic career of the distinguished bride. Mmede Harrios was the daughter of Francisco Aparicia, a wealthy coffee planter of Qnezaltenango, tho second city in importance in the Republic of Guatemala. When she was 11 years old General du Barrois espied her one day anil fell violently in love with the beautiful young girl. The common story is that the girl rebelled. And then, too, her purents objected to the match. She was whisked off to a mountain convent by the general. The next move that tho dictator made was to clap the father in jail. The prisoner was informed that he could remain there until his pretty daughter became Mmede Barrios. However that may be, she certainly did become the dictator's wife at a tender age, and some of her friends say that the story of abduction and marriage by force was all romance. At ahy rate, she was devoted to tho generalMind ever since his death has been devoted to ..his numerous children, only iwur-Of whom are hur own. When the trouble arosii in Guatemala Mine de Harrios escaped to San Francisco. The general fell in battle. His widow eventually settled in New- York, where she bought the house 855 Fifth avenue. During her residence there she devoted herself to society, to music and the education of her seven children. Her father and mother, and her two younger married sisters also live in New York, the father now being a member of the banking firm of J. P. Aparlcio & Co. of this city. Men and women alike regard Mtno. de Iliiri 'ioM as being one of the most beautiful women the metropolis has ever seen. She»hus a very wUle circle of acquaintances, and during the past winter she has entertained on an extensive scale. She is charming in manner, with a loveable disposition of the genuine South American type. Not only is sho beautiful, but she is very rich, her bank account being said to average in the neighborhood of nine million dollars. To wealth and beauty she adds the additional charm of youth, for she has scarcely turned her thirtieth year. Oallafrher Ucaten.
