LOS ARCOS, Sonora, Mexico, June
24.— Investigation by Americans Into
the murder of three American mining
men, whose bodies were found in a
water hole near this place, shows that
the crime was one of the most diabol
ical in the history of this section,
where crimes of violence are frequent.
Robbery was the motive, and there is
evidence of the organization of a gang
of Mexican bandits whose purpose is
to kill American mining men for the
double purpose of plundering their out
fits and to prevent their securing valu
able mines. As to this alleged conspir
acy little can be said at present, for the
American party, assisted by represent
atives of the Government, is conducting
an investigation, which is in secret.
Four men are under arrest charged
with the murders, and it is known they
were near the scene of the murders re
cently. One of the victims had been
shot in the back, , evidently while fish-'
ing. The face of another man was beat
en and mashed to a pulp by rocks. Fin
ger marks in his throat showed that he
had been choked. The third man's
hands had been tied and he had been
gagged. His head was torn by a glanc
ing bullet wound, but he had evidently
been killed by a knife thrust Just above
his heart. They had probably been tor
tured... the assassins hoping to learn
something of the money ; the party
might have had. The first of the three
men found .had evidently fought for his
life, as pieces of his torn shirt were
lying on the bank.

GALVESTON. Tex., June 24.—Tele

from Indian Territory are to the ef
fect that the followers of Chito Hargo,
better known as the "Snake" band of
Indians, have organized near Conway
to res.lst the allotment "'of land "iri"lfief

these dissatisfied Indians have pur
chased Winchesters, also heavy sup

of the band have held a meeting In the
hills and have threatened to kill the
members of the Dawes Commission if
any attempt is made to force them to
take arbitrary allotments.
Three years ago Chito Hargo and his
band started an uprising in the Creek
Nation, which caused no end of trouble
to the Government. These Indians
have been considered peaceable except
when they are stirred up by the lead
ers upon some question which they
think involves their survival. Then
they go on the warpath and indulge
in rapid murder and destruction, as in

LONDON. June 23.— The Morning

that the mystery concerning Kent J.

"Mr. Loomis," the dispatch says,

AH the morning newspapers, with tha
exception of the Morning Leader, treat
the disappearance of Kent J. Loomls
as a serious affair. None of the special
dispatches from Paris confirm the dis
patch sent by the Morning Leader cor
respondent, saying that Loomls waa
seen in Paris yesterday and left last
night on his way to Abyssinia. So far
as London is concerned the disappear
ance of Loomis continues to be shoud
ed In the deepest mystery. The Lon
don manager of the North German
Lloyd line is quoted as saying that the
matter has become a serious one, as
every effort to find Loomis has failed.
Loomls was proceeding to Abyssinia
to deliver to Emperor Menelik the re
cently * signed cdmmerclal- treaty be
tween the United States and Abyssinia.*
It has now been arranged with Wil

Loomls from New York, to proceed to

SAN RAFAEL, June 24.— Patrick Ma
guire, an inmate of the public alms
house in Marin County, learned yes
terday that he is a rich man. By the
regular legal course his claim to an in
terest in a $100,000 estate was estab
lished. The friends of theold man were
overjoyed at the good news, and they
hastened to his humble cot in the In
firmary. But there was no smile on Ma.
"Let me stay here," he replied. "1
long ago knew that some day a part of
my sister's wealth would be mine, but
I did not ask for it. She did not know
I was in this place, and I kept her ig
norant of my whereabouts. My days
are numbered and I do not need the
money. I want to stay here, which is
home to me. To go elsewhere would be
to enter an uneasy life."
- And so Patrick Maguire refuses to
desert the life of an Indigent to go even
to a hospital, where he would receive
every attention that money can supply.
A little more than a year ago Mrs.
Hugh McDermott.of San Mateo died,
leaving a large estate. She left no will,
and- there apparently being no direct
heirs, relatives have since been contest
ing.over a division of the realty.
V Maguire knew that by merely estab
lishing 'his identity he would be en
titled to , a major portion of the estate,
but he* kept his secret until recently,
when t . he. explained all to the Rev.
Father Byrnes. The priest wrote to the
executors explaining the circumstances.
The rest was a matter of detail. Ma
guire will receive his part of the estate.
Perhaps he may never enjoy the bene
fits of his fortune, for he is now almost
70 years* ~old and paralysis holds him
Maguire is a pioneer of the State. He
came to Marin County forty-two years
ago and accumulated a fortune, but it
dwindled away by reverses, and for
more than a year he has been a pauper.
