A WHITE ELEPHANT?
Washington, D. C, Sept. 10. General
Drum, acting secretary of war, has given
instructions that Gcronimo, Natchez and
other hostiles who surrendered with them
be stopped at San Autonia, and kept in
prison there till a determination te reached
as to what course of proceedings will be
undertaken against them. It officially
known that the surrender was not ' made
without conditions, but what the, condi
tions were is beyond agreement. They
should not be surrendered for trial in Ari
zona. It is not yet reported that it wa3 in
compliance with the condition that
General Miles started with the
hostiles for Florida. Determination of
course prccacdure will probably be made by
the president, but not till the terms of sur
render and all the attendant circumstances
shall be officially known. With present
knowledge it seems probable that the of
fenders can neither be tried by court mar
tial nor by the civil authorities, but may
be tried as the Modocs were, by military
commission. This is a tribunal for which
there are many well recognized precedents
in our own history, though it is one which
has as yet no recognition in statutory law.
The atrocities of these prisoners, terrible
as they were, are not thought
to be such as would bring them within the
jurisdiction of a court martial, which is very
limited, nor would civil courts in the ab
sense of witnesses meet the requirements of
the case, although their guilt is notorious.
Under the circumstances a military com
mission which seems to be intermediate
between a court marshal and a tribunal of
judge lynch, and which is recognized by
publicists as a necessity under certain cir
cumstances is, perhaps, the only conri, by
which justice could be meted out to those
murderers, and composed of military ofli-
cers its proceedings would be similar in
character to those of a court martial. Lit
tle doubt is entertained, by those -who
I: now the character of the Apaches, that
there will be found among them a number
who will readily betray Gcromino and
other leaders to save there own necks.
THE rOPULAK DESIVND.
The Army and Navy Resistor to-morrow
will say: If public opinion and that of the
army has any weight in deciding the fate
of Geronimo and Jus murderous band, they
will be tried by a military commission,
speedily convicted and executed without
undue delay. There is a precedent for
such treatment of them, if one is needed,
in the case of the trial by military commis
sion of the Sioux after the Minnesota mas
sacre in 18G2. Five hundred of the pris
oners were then put on trial, 300 of whom
were found guilty of murder and thirty
eight were hanged. Every one of
the band was a prisoner of war
at the time of his escape from
the San Carlos reservation. They had
been placed there by General Crbok and
were given the liberty of the reservation on
condition of not leaving it. They broke
this promise and used their privileges to es
cape in order again to take the war path.
They are paroled prisoners, taken red
handed in the act of war and should suffer
the punishment adjudged by the law of
war to such acts of treachery."

confers upon Mexican cou'rts jurisdiction

insLt upon the renunciation by Mexico of

CniCAGO, Sept. 10. The western rail
way general managers, after a three days
sesoion, succeeded to-day in reaching a
basis of compromise and reorganizing the
western association. The two prominent
obstacles have leen the refusal of the Chi
cago and Northwestern to pool its
range cattle business originating in western
Nebraska and Wyoming, and the demand
of the Missouri Pacific that by reason of its
Lincoln, Neb., extension it should be
awarded a share of the through businesss.
The first was settled by virtually conceding
to the Northwestern its point. This was
done by removing the eastern boundary
line of the range cattle pool as it formerly
existed, running north and south through
Valentine, Brady Island and Indianoia
Neb., to Laramie City ami Douglass. Tin"
gives the Northw estern controfof all the
cattle shipped on its lino west
of Norfolk to Fort Fttterman.
from which it will exact load
rates and not report the business to any
pool. As both the Union Pacific and Burl
ington are building into that territory, it
will not enjoy the monopoly longer than
the present season,
f he other bone of contention was amica
bly divided bv irivinj: the Missouri Pacific
4 per cent iu the pool on the through busi
ness, and awarding the Omaha 2 per cent.
The Kansas City, St. Joe & Council Bluffs
is awarded G per cent of the gros earnings
in the Council Uluus local pool, otherwise
the percentages remain unchanged. A
committee ot one lrora each road was an-
pointed to perfect the miner details of the
pool, to report to the general meeting at
11 a. m. tomorrow, to which time adjourn
ment was taken, The pool which will en
dure five years will go into effect Septem
ler 15th, w ith J. N." Faithorn as commis
sioner. This completes one cf the most
imiMJrtant and far reaching railroad combi
nations ever made in the west.
The Fleecy Staple.
New Orleans, Sept. 10. The National
Cotton exchange report made up b)- C. P.
Parker, secretary, for the month of August
I based on full returns fnin all parts of il
f cotton belt, savs: In contradistinction 1
last year, cotton this seaion had not ncarly
so good a start, and low! averages prevailed
during the early months: Except wesi of
Mississippi and iu Tennessee, but in the
Atlantic states and n carry all the territory
cast of Mississippi ihcrc'has been an im
provement during the whole of August,
and the lruiting season has shown" an
advance instead of reprogression.
Within this area, however, the crop ij gen
erally late and therefore more exposed to
any future unfavorable influence. On the j
other hand m the former high rated states
of Texas and Arkansas and portions of
Louisiana, the plant has suffered from lack
of sufficent moisture, hill and prairie lands
being of course the most seriously affected
and shedding has been general taking all
together, however, the loss on one side has
been more than counter balanced by the
gain on the other and the general condition
of the crops is improved.
The Georgia Method.
Wat-Ckoss, Ga., Sept. 10. Near
Crown's turpentine still, in this county,
Wednesday afternoon, three negroes seized
Miss Williams, a pretty 13-year-old girl
daughter of a prosperous planter, as she
was passing along the road, -bent on as
saulting her. Miss Williams screamed and
resisted so valiantly that two assailants fled.
The third, however", was more desperate
and threw her to the ground. At th s
point her cries attracttd the attention of Mr.
Warrsn and at his approach the remaining
negro fled. Mr. Warren pursued, and af
ter a chase of a mile and a half through
a swamp, overtook and overpowered him
after a desperate hand-to-hand struggle.
Having been led back to the scene of the
crime and identified, the negro was hunsr
to a convenient tree and left swinging until
this morning. Two more necks will be
stretched if his companions are caught.
