soldiers stationed at Mud Hpring, un
der command of Lieut. Wheedor, ar
rived in this city to-day. Frnm him
was le'arned thei surrender of Geron
imo to Lieut. Maus. The fiu'ts leading
to the surrender are reported to be as
follows: Yesterday afternoon, about
ten miles south of San Bernardino,
the Apache camp was attacked by
Mexican forces and a hot skirmish en
sued. During the skirmish two Apa
ches were killed and the forces of
tieronimo completely routed. Geron
imo nnd band tied in tho direction of
Lieut Mann's camp" for safety, aud
surrendered unconditionally. The
Mexican troops followed them across
tho line into Matin's camp and de
manded their prisoner, claiming that
the fight occurred on Mexican soil and
that the victory was theirs. Mans re
fused to give the prisoners up, which
greatly incensed the Mexicans, who
threatened to tike the prisoinirs by
force. Oen. Crook is hourly cxrocteil
in camp, but at lat accounts had
fnikil to arrive. Two dispatches from
Mans have been received at Mud
Springs, appealing for troops and assistance-

of the .H Using Manager HU
Unpaid Debts.
The Dime Mufeuin was open yes
terday under the management of Mr.
Wallace, tne Man fish, who rotated
as roaster o: ceremonies. It appears
that yesterday morning the piform-
era secured a lease of the bunding for
a week, and eelemd Wallace as their
representative to ran the show and
enable them to get ont of town.r.ith
out walking. An Appeal reporter
dropped in riming tbe evening and in
terviewed Manager Wallace, who
stated that tbe show was to be run on
the co-operative dan that is, that
the performers will pay tbe
rent, lights, eta, and divide the
nrrifitt. He taid the freaks were
left '-dead broke," and that this ,was
tbeir only chance to get outof town. Of
course the creditors will get i otbing, at
everything in the building belonging t
Crosby would not bring $100 at a pub
lic sale, and the Dime Mueum will
prol aliy die a ntt'iial dea h by tbe
end of the week. In the meantime,
however, the freaks will make the
beet of tbe situation, and do what
they can to make the museum attrac
tive during their management.
It has been f und to be impossible
to get anything like a full tndicsu
rate list of the creditors. Daan &
Carroll are probably the heaviest in
dividual loaers, being ont about $100,
the balance due lor ntting op the
building. The daily tapers also loBt
sums ranging from $10 to $100. Mrs,
liice and S. Vendig, owners of the
building, come in for a neat
sum. The performers lost their
week's salaries, at did all the
employes of tbe houae. In addition
to these there are numerous smaller
bills outstanding, tbo wbol indebted-
net s probably aggregating $21X 0, to off
f ot which there are less than $100 ae
ste. It will be seen fioui the above
that, while the failure was not a heavy
one financially, it was complete and
wou'd have done credit to aJcrs-y
bank cashier.
Nothing is known of ihe where
abouts of the only Crosby, but site
his departure a so )1 many facts have
come tut abou'. Lit brief hut brilliant
engagement In the Blull City net
hitherto known. It is now said that
the cauBe of his sudden fi ght was fear
that he would be arrested lor skipping
out and having a party of freaks
known as the "seven long-haired sis
ters," cf which he wat mnnngsr, with
out account;ng for some $000 or $700.
Another rumor is that thore were a
couple of women mixed up in the af
fair, and that they made it so
warm for Crosby that he could cot
ttind the pressure, and left to avoid
causing serious trouble. At any rate,
Crosby has shook the dust of Mem
phis from his feet, aad will doubtless
be found next eeaton at bis old busi
ness as "blower" in fr nt of a side
show, with a bundle of tickets in one
hand and a ping bat in the other,while
he "scoops the gays" lor the greatest
show on earth tbe Mammoth Dime

Saturday and Sunday. Papers were
read on various t pics of tbe work,
and the same discussed on all prac
tical points appertaining to the best
methods to be used in benefit
ing yoang men, through means
of the associations. Encou-ag-Inn
repoiti were made from
different places and a deep interest
awakened in association work, viry
much enlightening the people of
Dyersburg. The meetings were all
well attended, the pastors of the dif
ferent churches uniting in tbe work,
and the reliirlous interest being so
great at the close of the session Bun-
day night, it was decided to carry on
revival meetings during this week.
The following were delrgite f'om

returned yesterday and gave a
glowing account of the hospl

by telegraph between this convent;on
and the Eastern District Convention,
