who went up on the last trip of the revenue

$5000 In presents, given them by the govern
ment in recognition of the shelter and food
lumlthed Ihe officers and crew ol the steamer
Kodgert, burned in 1SS1, reports the discov
ery of an Immense river, hitherto unknown.
Geographers say that the river had been
vaguely spoken of by Indians to former ex
plorers, and Stoney, belne compelled to await
me return trip 01 tne lorwin, determined to
see If there was anything In it. Accompanied
by one attendant and Interpreter, he pro
ceeded inland from Hot Basin Inlet In
southeasterly direction and struck what he
believed to be the mysterious river. He
traced it to Its mouth, a distance ol 100 miles,
where he saw such immense nieces of float nr?
timber as to satisfy him that the stream must
be of prodigious length. The Indians told
him they came down it 1500 miles to meet fur
traders, and that the river went up hicher
man mat. ine inuians stated tnat in some
places it was 20 miles wide. It is within the
arctic circle, but in August, when Stoney was
there, he found flowers and vegetables not
hitherto discovered in hich latitudes. He has
lorwaraca nis report to tne secreliry, and
hopes that he will be permitted to go back

l'lve Mexicans Arrested anda Wagon Load
of Stolen Property Itecovered.
From Information received, the city police
had reason to believe that the men who were
implicated in many of Ihe burglaries lately
committed in this city would be found at a
Mexican den across the San Pedro, and Mar
shal Shardein decided to raid it. At 10
o'clock last night the raid was effected, and
the following ate the names of those arrested
Jose Maria Hernandez, Pablo Cervantes, An
tonlo Vaiquez, Refugio Vasquez and San
tiago Vasquez. All submitted quietly except
Hernandez, who drew a knife upon officer
Martinez. That vigilant officer Immediately
drew his revolver and persuaded Hernandez
to lay down his knife. On searching the
bouse stolen properly was found valued at
several hundred dollars, and 'the goods are
now at the police headquarters waiting Iden
tification. The Mexican burglars have been
placed In jail to await their deserts.
A large quantity of the stolen property has
been claimed as part of the gooda stolen from
Stelnler's store,.on Alamo plaza, on Monday
week, but much Is missing, and It Is evident
that the plunder has been divided into shares,
The property was all buried Immediately
after the robbery, and has only just been
taken up for division. It Is thought that other
men of the same gang are still at large.

A STRANGE SUICIDE.
Mose Craigston Was Engaged to be Mar

Named Rosa Lee.
Hut Ineleu.l ot (letting; Martini He Sul-
cldee Ami Now Mrs In the
Last night a very strange rumor went around
e city and on inquiry the Lkhit representa
tive found that It was too true. The victim of
the suicidal mania was Mose Craigston, a
mulatto, aged 22 years, who woiked at the
Revolving Light saloon. Mose was
ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED
to a pretty young mulatto girt named Rosa
Lee, and they had arranged to be married to
morrow. On Monday Mose saw the girl's
parents and got their content to the wedding.
He then aiked if they could slay at the btide
elect parents' house for a few days after the
marriage, but permission was refused. He
joked and laughed with his sweetheart, but
the refusal seemed to trouble him. Last night
he called upon his mother, Mrs. Slcagall, and
they had some words, during which Mose got
very excited and said, "Mamma you'll be
sorry for this." He then left the house; sub
sequently he was seen by Officer Wilklns on
West Commerce street In distress, and then
said he would fix himself. A little while after
wards he went to the
saloon, on West Commerce street, and
seemed then to be sober and In good spirits.
He leaned over the bar, and seeing a pistol
he asked Henry Whartonby if he would trade
the pistol for the ring he then wore. Whar
tonby was willing to do so, and handed him
the pistol, at Ihe same time telling him to be
careful how he handled It, as it was loaded.
Mose remarked t "I know how to handle a
pistol," and Whartonby went on with his
work, while Mose examined the pistol. Soon
after Mose cocked the pistol and was seen by
B. Cohen to place it near his head. He then
FULLED THE TRIGGER
and fell. He never spoke after, and death
was almost Instantaneous. Justice Adam was
notified of tbe death, and, after hearing evi
dence in accordance with the facts recorded
here, the inquest jury declared that the de
ceased died by a shot from a pistol held and
fired by his own hands, with suicidal Intent,
The suicide was unexpected and can
scarcely be accounted for by any other reason
than the deceased was temporarily Insane,
Jtoliert Hulpert Is Arrested for it Thirty
Thouennd Dollar Forgery.
Messrs. Kidder, Peabody & Co., bankers
of Boston, a few days since notified their cor
respondents, Messrs. F. Groos & Co., bank
ers of this city, that on the 27th day of Sep
tember last some persons had defrauded them
of $30,000 by means of a forged check, in the
name of Dewey, and sect a description of the
individual wanted for the offense. On Mon
day Mr. Robert Hulpert called at Groos' bank
In search of M exlcan money, and as his de
scription tallied with that of the forger, the
bankers sent for Detective Hughes and he
was arrested, but when It was found who the
man was, that he had resided here for two
years, and bore a good reputation, he was re
leased. Messrs. Kidder, Peabody & Co,
were advised as to what had been dene, when
when they immediately instructed that the
man be arrested at all hazards, as he was the
forger, and offered to Indemnify tbe bank
from any damages that might be Incurred by
reason of the arrest. Mr. Hulpert was there
fore rearrested yesterday and Is now in jail,
air. Hulpert is well known In this city and at
one time In conjunction with Mr. Laux owned
the Jewel saloon. He claims that he is inno
cent and can prove that he was in the city
when the crime was committed. He there
fore petitions for a writ of habeas corpus.
The writ of habeas corpus has been Issued
and is returnable to-day, but It is doubtful
whether the case will be tried, as the Con
nolly case still blocks the way. In the mean
time bail in $10,000 Is allowed for the prii
oner. The case is very complicated. The
prosecution claim that there Is a strong case
against the accused, but the citizens declared
that Hulpert was in the city when the crlm
Is said to have been committed.
