Tom imniMF, Arm., Oct. 22. Ihe deprela
tionscd thesaveges in tnis territory and New,
Mexico have nlarmed the whole country as it
never was alarmed before. The Indians are
In small parties, and they move with such
celerity that it has been found almost impos
sible to detect or capture them. They are
everywhere, and lile In exposed seltlements is
one unending round of alarms.
Geronlmo's recent exploit at Fort Apache
Is ou every tongue. A few weeks ago he
was known to be In the Sierra Madre moun
tains in old Mexico, but he left his fastness
and tnovid down into the valley. The troops
and settlers who are picketed all along the
border made riaily for him, but they saw
nothing of him. He-moved by night, and
long before the pickets were aware ot it he
was across the border, making straight for
Fort Apache It is now believed lint he (ent
a sp) ahead di'guised as a Mexican peon, and
that when this runner found the coast dear
he signalled to his friends to follow. The
Indians bate a very ingenious code of signals,
and it would not be difficult lor them to ad
vance In a hostile country by their use. Once
across the line Geronuno made for the Mogul
Ion mountains, and alter billing there until
he had sent his spy into Fort Apache l.e
made his descent.
When the bojllles left the fort for the war
path in the spring, they took very few women
with them, Gerouinio hnn'elt leaving both of
his wives behind Having made Lis escape to
Old Mexico, and wishing to remain there
htrealter, he Uid his plans to secure his
women. IU aching llm Mogollons in the
manner described, he sent a spy to the Ion,
ho notified Ins wives ,tbat at a certaiu hour
their chief would be .tbare to reecue them,
and that they must Unready. Geronimo
waited iu his mountain retisxtysjnltl the night
was lavorable, and then moved "slyly toward
the reservation, lie had to pass the ollicers'
quarters on his waj to the place where It was
"greed that the women (hould be wailing,
but he stole by unobserved, and finding his
wives, made off with them to the mountains.
The next day 't wns dKovered at the fort
that two siuaws had left during the night,
and that Apad.cs bad been near the fort, but
not until a week had elapsed was it knonn
that ihe women were Gerunimo'i wives, and
that that doughty brave himself had been
within the enclosure.
Alter gaining pofsesnion of the women
Geronimo moved slowly toward the south,
and, preceded in Ibis case as U fore by a trust
ed sp, he ran the pickets on the border ami
renclu-d Ins Mexican eyrie In satity. His
achievement is regarded as one ol the "mart

discharged their places were oilered to white
men ut the same wages, but, no, they
would uot take their places unless wages
weie raised Irom fl 25 to il SO per day.
This the employers could not pay, and the
mills had to shut down.
