The Commissioner of Pensions has de
cided adversely upon the application for
a pension of one Dawson, ot Company I,
West Virginia Calvalry, who joined the
Confederate service while a Union prisoner.
It is alleged that the enlistment wes for the
purpose of escaping to the Federal lines at
a favorable opportunity. In his decision
the Commissioner saye: "I can not hold
otherwise than that the soldier in this case
did render voluntarily aid and comfort to
the late rebellion against the United States.
The claim wiil therefore be rejected, and in
this, and all other similar cases, Congress
alone can give relief."

THE NATIONAL WOOL GROWERS.
They Meet In National Convention at -St.
The annual convention of the National
Wool Growers' association met at 8t. Louis.
It was presided over by the president, Hon.
Columbus Delano, of Ohio. Speeches were
made by Jerome Hill, president of the Cot
ton Exchange; Geo. W. Allen, acting may
or of the city; Gen. W. T. Sherman and
President Delano. The secretary's report
was read and adopted. Officers for the en
suing year were elected by acclamation, as
follow: Columbus Delano, president; Al
bert Chapman, secretary; C. H. Bell, treas
The followicg executive committee was
also elected: 1. H. Pray, of New York; E.
Bronson, of Kansas; A. Sims, of Texas.
Colonel Coleman, commissioner of agri
culture, who was present, was called on for
a speech, andrespondeu by saying that the
department of agriculture would use every
honorable means to encourage the enter
prise of the wool growers ot the country.
An investigation had already been made
by the department on various subjects in
connection with wool growing and the re
ports should soon be published. Efforts
will also be made to eradicate the various
diseases which are so destructive to sheep
Several resolutions were offered and re
ferred to the committee on resolutions
Chapman, of Vermont, Wallace, of Mis
souri, Congressman Converse, of Ohio, and
others were in favoi of a protective tariff
for wool. Vernon, of Texas, said the Unit
ed States could grow better wool than
Northern Australia, and would soon com
pete with Southern Australia.
Resolutions were adopted demandingthe
restoration of the wool tariff of 1867. They
recite that since the alteration in the im
port during 1883, $90,000,000 has been lost
to the wool-growers of America in lower
prices alone, saying nothing of the depre
ciation in the value of flockB. These fig
ures are based on a comparison with the
prices of 1882. It is set forth that if the
tariff is not restored, the sheep husbandry
of the country must be abandoned.
A confederation among the American
producers is recommended to educate the
people to the necessity of preserving a suit
able state of legislation. The association
declares it will support such men as are in
favor of protection to the wool interests.
The executive committee has been ordered
to meet at Washington at the next session

A special dispatch from Tuscon, Arizona.
says that the Indians are scattered in small
bands in different parts of New Mexico, but
are mostly in the vicinity of the Black
Range. More than thirty citizens are re
ported killed, many being mangled beyond
recognition. The greatest excitements pre
vail fn the settlements of the Gila. No
Indians have been killed or captured since
the outbreak. Gen. Cook is on his way to
relieve Gen. Bradley of the command of
the soldiers. Miners and ranchmen are
coming in from all directions. Much dis
satisfaction is expeessed concerning the ac
tion of the troops. Reports from Lake
Valley, N. M., state that a band of about
forty indians came in sight of that settle
ment. The cit'zans armed themselves and
went out to hold them in check. The In
dians finally moved off before any action
The report has reached 8ilver City N. M.,
that a small detachment of the Tenth Cav
alry encountered Chief Geronimo and his
band of Apaches near that place. The In
dians were endeavoring to escape to Mex
ico. The hostiles were driven back with the
Iosb of four killed, and twice as many
wounded. Two soldiers were killed and
eight wounded. Owing to the small num
ber of troops, the Indians were not pur
sued. The detachment is trying to effect
a junction with two companies of the
Fourth Cavalry, when at active pursuit
will be made.
The Anaches have been joined by a num
ber of Utes and Navajoes. The band is
composed of nearly 200 warriors. The In
dians retreated towards Deamon creek,
where the women numbering nearly 100,
had preceded them.
A Bpecial to a Denver paper from Silver
City says the Apaches are making a bloody
trail through that section. It iB now
thought three or four different bands are
depredating and murdering in as many
sections of the territory. The hostiles ap
parently number about three hundred.
Four chiefs are with them; Geronimo,
Naha, Natetcha and Chihuahua. The
corp.-es of a Mexican and his wife and three
children were found five miles from there.
Another Mexican is known to have been
killed in the same vicinity, and his .com
panion badly wounded. It is reported that
numerous ranches on Bear Creek have
been sacked, horses stolen and cattle killed.
The Indians trail was followed from there
to the Pecos Atlas foot hills. The Indi
ana approached within four miles of
Fort Bayard. Three troops of cavalry
are now in pursuit. It is reported that the
Indians are doubling back on the old trail
in the direction of Bear creek. This band
numbers about eighty. Another band on
the Gila river drove off one hundred and
thirty head of horses. Two couriers are
Three additional prospectors have been
killed near the south fork of the White
Water river, and one named John Bunting
on Magallen creek. The latter made a
brave fight and killed two Indians, includ
ing a Chief. The fight was witnessed by a
hunting partner who succeeded in slaying
two Apaches, and escaping News has just
been received of additional killings in the
Black range. Famili- from the surround

City panic stricken.
A Train in Charge of a Madman Arrives In
Passenger train No. 6, on the Wabash, St.
Louis & Pacific railway, arrived at Chicago
an hour and a half late, in charge of a mad
man. Out of the twelve or fifteen mon, of
ficers and citizens, who finally secured him,
one officer is dead, shot through the body,
another probably fatally wounded, several
citizens injured, and the lunatic himself
lies in the county hospital, mortally
wounded, with three bullets in him.
Shortly before noon tc-day the station
policeman at the Wabash depot on Polk
street, received the following dispatch:
Chenoa, III., June 6.
I have an insane man on my train, who has
possession of one car. The police at Kansas City
Jacksonville and Peoria were all afraid to take
him. Please send ten or twelve policemen oat
on No. 1 to take him when we arrive in Chicago.
Thej had better come In citizens' clothes. They
will have to look sharp or tome one will get hurt.
Signed Putnam, Conductor.
No. 6, which left Kansas City last night,
was due here at 2:50 p. m. There was diffi
culty in starting out No. 1, as directed in
the dispatch, and it was decided to meet the
train at the depot. Officers Casey, Ryan,
Murphy, Rowan, Walsh, Stremming,
Dohney, Barrett and Keenan, in uniform,
and Smith, Terry, Amstein, O'Brien and
Laughlin, in citizens' clothes, under the
command of Lieutenant Lough, made up
the (quad which arrived at the depot ten
minutes before the train was due. The
train being delayed, as was subsequently
learned by ineffectual efforts to capture the
lunatic, the police were forced to wait more
than an hour. After considerable anxious
speculation as to the condition of things on
board No. 6, the oflbers were finally any
thing but reassured by a dispatch from a
suburban station, warning them that the
maniac was well armed and would resist
desperately. A little later No. 6 appeared
in sight, and the police, separating so as to
form two Fqu8ds, awaited her arrival on
either side of the track. As the train ap
proached the whistle sounded a number of
warning notes in quick succession. People
banged half way out of the car windows
and were seen to be gesticulating wildly to
the crowd. Before the train had come to a
standstill a dozen passengers jumped to the
ground and fled, looking back with blanch
Officer Barrett was the first to observe the
lunatic Barrett was standing near the
rear end of the smoking car. The madman
with leveled revolver glared at him from
the front platform of the chair car. the
length of one car distant. Barrett turned
half round and stopped instantly, but too
late. A ball from the lunatic's revolver
struck him in the side and in five minutes
he was dead.
One look at the Imnatic was enough to
satisfy one that while his ammunition
lasted he would not be taken alive. Seeing
this the officer, after removing their
wounded comrade, began afnsilade through
the windows of the smoking car, where the
madman had taken refuge. After a min
ute or two he plunged out on the platform,
fired a couple of shots into the crowd, leap
ed from the t-ain and dashed down Fourth
avenue. Officer Laughlin started in hot pursuit
and at him the lunatic fired the last shot
in his weapon, but without effect. The
maniac stopped and then awaited Laugh
lin's coming with gleaming eyes and froth
ing mouth. They clinched. The officer
tripped his prisoner and they both fell, the
maniac meanwhile beating Laughlin un
mercifully on the head with his revolver.
The officer was in citizen's clothes and was
set upon and terribly pounded by an ex
cited colored man who mistook him fox:
The rest of the squad arrived shortly:.
The maniac was secured and taken first to
a cell and then to the hospital to have his
wounds dressed. When he realized that
further resistance was useless the prisoner
grew calm, and said quite rationally that
his name. was Louis Reume, that he was 3&
years old, and was en route to his home in
Detroit from Denver.
The trainmen of No. 6 tell a thrilling:
story of the trip from Kansas City. When
the man boarded the train at that place, he
remarked that people were after him to
lynch him and that if left alone he would
molest no one. At 1 Paso, 111., he became
violent, and with revolver in hand, order
ed the trainmen to cease making some
changes in the makeup of the train.
The passengers all left the chair car,,
which the madman made his headquarters,
and were locked into the others. No one
dared approach the lunatic, and after her
had exchanged shots with the city marshal,
he ordered the train to proceed, and from;
there to Chicago his will was the only law?
Since his wounds have been dressed'
Reume has become somewhat more com
municative. He says he is a French Cana
dian by birth and a fresco painter by trade,
and has a wife and three children in De
troit. He wrote a white sombrero, and as.
he ran down Fourth avenue was thought by
tne residents to be a cowboy on a spree. As
the train on which he arrived was passing
slowly through the outskirts of the city &
man by the name of Spruck jumped aboard
the platform where the maniac stood.
Reume immediately blazed away with hia
revolver, a ball just grazing Spiuck's chirk
and takine a button from his coat. Spruck
stepped off and waited for another train.
In the fight at the depot the maniac re
loaded es fret as his weapon Wfes emptied,,
and altogether more than 159 shots were?
