OtharTerritorial Governor*.^C-ICAOo, March 2ft.^A Washington^special says: The charges filed against^(^ov. Wolfley, of Arizona, In the senate are^threefold. The three charges embodied^are an follows: Kxtorting money on Infor^matlon gained in confidential relations;^fraudulent surveys, and a technical charge^relating to materials used by Woltley In^surveys in the territory. The first charge,^made at the instigation of Colin ^ Brew^^ster, ef Cameron, Ariz , who own large^tracts of land in the territory, is considered^the most serious. They employed Wolf-^ley for six weeks In surveying and clear^^ing up titles. He charged them $1,600, of^which $600 was for expenses. The matter^was compromised for $100, after Wolfley^had offered to submit the matter to arbitra^^tion. The general impression Is his nomi^^nation will be confirmed at an early date,^as the territorial committee does not seem^to consider a case being made out agaiuttt^him.
A1. Morrison, formerly of Chicago, li^said to be a candidate for governor of New^Mexico, lie Is the man who, at a meeting^of Irishmen in New York, started a move^^ment during the last campaign for the^adoption of the American flag as the^republican emblem as an offset to the^democratic bandrnna. Morrison's frlenda^say he has lived long enouiih In the^territory to make him a native, there^^fore he Is within the home-rule^requirements which the president Is fol^^lowing in territorial appointments. Uen.^Harrison Is Inclined to do something In^recognition of Morrison's servlos In the^campaign. There Is, however, opposition^in New Mexico. The moderator of the^general assembly cane all tbe way to^Washington to protest against Morrison's^appointment. He Intended to see Gen.^Harrison, but after talking with Secretary^Halford went away satisfied. He presented^protests from various religious bodies In^the territory.

Umiontown,Pa, March 2o\^Robbing^appeara to becoming epidemic In Fayette^county. Lewis Hunter was In I'niontown^Saturday and late at night started for his^home at White Rock, when three men^sprang out of the bushes, grasped his^horse and demanded his monev^ Hunter^dug his kueea into his horse and the spirit^^ed animal sprang off. The highwayman^shot after him but did no harm, owing to^the darkness. It Is evident others are^profiting by the terror inspired by the Mc-^Clellandtown band and under cover ot^their fame are operating, hoping the blame^may attach to other outlaws.
LastSunday Allen and Alouzo Sister^and George and Fioaa Deitrlch, all nearing^manhood, attended the Baptlat Sunday^school at Stewartslown. Soon bad blood^showed Itself and the congregation were^astonished to see the youths of each family^brandishing revolvers at each other and^starting in to fight A scene of wild con^^fusion rose, women and children scresmed^and tbe few men present could not quell^the disturbance. They soon had thechurch^to themselves and lu the desperate fight^that ensued the Deitrlch family were badly^used up. George Sister was beaten on the^head with a revolver and his brother being^severely hurt. Assistance arrilvng tne^gang was put to Might, the Sister boys fiee^Fng to I'niontown, ana are now thought to^be secreted at one of the numerous cake^works In that region. Blood bespattered^the walls of the church, showing the des^perate nature of the contest, (treat excite^^ment prevails in the neighborhood over the^outbreak and the end of the trouble has not^been aeen.
A1m .in two years ago a feud arose between^Dolph Sister and John Deitrlch, a well-to-^do farmer living near Stewartstown, in^West Virginia, over the trespasses of 81s^ter's hogs. Fire was added to the feud not^long ago by Sister's preferring a charge of^Illegal liquor selling against Deitrlch, who^owns a distillery, but which failed to be^established, and Deitrlch was acquitted.
I-o i i - \ 11. i, k , March 26.^A special from^Plneville, Ky., to the Courier-Journal says:^Hostilities have ceased, at leaat for the^time being, between the warring Turner^and Souder factions In the Yellow Creek^neighborhood, and at present there are no^indication* of Its renewal. No one has^been killed for at leaat thlrtv-alx hours,^and the Interest In the feud Is nagging. At^present (ran. Souder Is in jail at Swineford,^under indictment for the assaslnstion of^Jack Turner two years ago, and even^should he be released there are other^charges which will doubtless^be strong enough to hold^him: In tact, several murders In which he^has been implicated one way or another^have still to be rained into court. The^killing of James Burch, another leader of^the Souder crowd, has distinguished them,^and so far as that faction is concerned the^war la at an end, unless the Turners start^it up again. Alvln Turner's death at tbe^hands of Burch depr'ved the followers of^that young Hotspur of the chief source of^revenue, and the people of Bill county^seem at present to think that as soon as the^supply of ammunition In the bauds of the^Turners has been burned, the end will^have been reached. Jeff King, who alone^survived the last affray, has been a fugi^^tive from his former friends and^foea alike, evidence having been^produced tu the effect that he robbed the^dead body of his fallen leader as well as^that of Burch. He was captured this after^^noon on the northern slope of Pine moun^^tain, seven miles southeast of Plnevllle, by^Deputy Sheriff Moss and Marshal Thomp^son, of Plnevllle, assisted by John and^Mark Turner, sons of lien Turner. Th^^^brought bun to Plnevllle and lodged hliu^in Jail. Harvey Turner Is still in Jail at^Ts/ well. and as far as the leaders are con^^cerned the Turners seem to be as badly off^as the Souders.
Burch'sbody was removed to Yellow^creek to day for burial, but young Turner^Is still at the house of his hum', Mrs. Cath^^erine Parker, whoae first husband, Mr.^King, and her son, Will King, were killed^by Jack Turner, the father of Alvln, fif^^teen years ago. The remainder of the^Turners have temporarily subsided, but it^is reported a number of them still in the^neighborhood are bearing arms and are^ready to resist any attempt that may be^made to arrest them.

The^case consumed nearly all of two days and^the verdict was a surprise to many people,^especially to the accused and his friends.^The defense was on the ground of accident^and a hard fight was made by Messrs.^Stephens, Blckford and Higglns for their^client. The case will probably be appeal^^ed.
