We have been waiting anxiously to bear of some boycotter who wants the saloons and bars boycotted for kepioR open more than eight hours. Jeff Davis was carried through the South on a railroad car displaying the motto. "Our President." How d.x Mr. Cleveland and his irinds like that? There is a loud cry for the amend ment of our emigration laws. This country must no longer be the damping ground for the Anarchistic enawn of Europe. If the people select incompetpnt men for office they must expect to pay fir their folly some way. They that sow to the wiiid will assuredly reap the whirlwind. Col. Quay is quoted, in a Phila delphia interview as having said "the recent orations of Jeff Davis in the Suuth hive renominated and elected L'aine and Locan in lSSS.r "As the old cock crow, the youu one learns " is a homely ad a:e that the Southern people who are applauding the senile utterances of Jeff I).ivL, mis:ht well lay to heart.

Dm ti)H workingmeii who are de maadii:!' tm Initt pay for eight hour work, ever tot to think how they would feel if their grocer should weish out to them twelve ounces of sugar and coffee and call it a pound ? Indications are cropping out of an endeavor to revive the Independ ent party. Our Democratic friends, who were its bf-neficiaries in 1SS2, are at the bottom of the movemenL That dunghill cock won't fight twice. The army of strikers has fairly wrecked the prospects of a good year's business. If when the next winter comes the inquiry should be, not how many hours shall we work ? but where shall we get work ? whose fault will it be? The farmer who limits his work- J itig hours to eight, wtll knows that' he i preparing for empty graueries, poor etix:k and a mortgaged farm. Can the workingman reduce his Lours of labor from ten to eight with ! any belter prospects ? It is announced that the prohibi tion leaders won't support General Deaver. Hon. Charles Wolfe has al so announced that he has joined the Prohibition party. Put these two things together, and you probably have effect and cause. SrrrosE the wives and daughters should strike for eight hours and the wages usually paid to hired girls, where would the heads of families be, who are whooping it up " for right hours work and ten hours pay? Iet us leason together, brethren ! General Master Powderly is vigor ously denouncing the. murders com mitted by the Anarchists in Chicago and Milwaukee. And yet, he en couraged the strikes and the turbu lence, and consequent violations of law, that gave the assassins their opportunity. TiiE Democratic New York M'orhl, ?pc of the late glorification of Jiff Davis, says: " Wc are along way from 1S01." But, says the In V Ocean, 'Jeff and the rebel veil d"ii't seem to have got across a U-u-uore field from the treason, the death f r.d the ruin of 1SG1.'' Ji'iXiE Bakr has resolved to grant licenses only on condition that all Minds, screens, drc, be removed from bar doors and windows. This is a long step towards reforming the common vice of lying. A ft-llow can't go home then and fool Lis wife with a lie as to where he spent his evenings. While the workingmen all over the country are on a strike Ijr high er wages, the Democratic majority iu Congress are scheming to reduce wages, by lowering the duties on the products of foreign labor. And yet workingmen are taking their employers, instead oi their repre sentatives, by the throat. Isn't there a mistake somewhere? Is view of the fact that the late riot and murders id Chicago and Milwaukee were due eolely to the foreign element, a movement is talk ed of in favor of placing greater res trictions upon immigration to this country. Now, let some flannel mouthed fellow hosri Knownothing ism ! and we will baye the propo s ed attempt to check the further im migration of foreign cut throats, thrust into the political arena.

The proper place for rebels to tbe law is on the gallows or the uenitentiaries, and we trust in to yet see them all take their proper places. Hardina and Smith, the convicted associates of Doctor Buttermore in the scheme to defraud the State ! out of $12,500 for a hospital atCocnells ville, were sentenced by the court at Harrifburz to Dav a fine ot 8200 each, the cosU of the prosecutio n and to undergo an imprisonment of one hour in the county iail.

Is their search after the Anarch ists whe incited and led tbe mobs in Chicago and Milwaukee, the po lice have unearthed stores of arms, bombs, and dynamite which these murderous deyils had prepared for use in tbe event that they could bring about a general riot It is said also, that evidence has been se cured sufficient t3 convict several of the arrested leaders, and it is hoped that ere long they will be dangling at the end of a rope. So, the runaway Democratic mem bers of the Ohio Senate bit off more then they could chew. They de prived the Senate of a quorum, and left a sentinel on guard, who follow ing their tactics, also deserted his post. The Republicans seized the opportunity, adopted the report of the committee which declared that the Democratic claimants of Hamil ton County were not elected, swore in the duly elected members and thus secured the majority they are entitled to. The runaways can now come back and submit to the inevit able, or set up a rump Senats of their own and attempt a revolution. Col. MoCluue is much given to political prophecy, although he is not aa eminent success in that line. In the Timet of Saturday last he says : "It may ! re;?:irJYJ a rciuimiilily well set tled that t'hnrlra M. Wolfe, the ln-lfprorlr-nt Icglslntor ami baler of t'nlim, will bp the lru lilhlllon candidate for ti jvernor, unit hi cfln-di'liK-y will greatly un'ttle the polities f the Stale." The political prohibilioists ars as erratic as Mr. Wolfe has proven him self to be, and are therefore capable of the folly of aatigonizing General Deaver, a lift-long ami consistent temperance man, with Wolfe, who to feed ft a political grudge will embark in any movement that will avenge him of the Republican party. By adopting this " apustle of hate " as iheir leader, the Prohibitiouists will only further emphasize the folly of dragging that issue into the politi cal arena. The Democratic Senators of Ohio have iled fro 11 Columbus and taken refuge in adjoining States, where th-y are free from arrest. Their ob ject w?s to leave the Senate without a quorum, so that the four Senators from Hamilton county, who were fraudulently returned as elected.can not be turned out, and the legally elected Republican members be giv en their seat.s. This action is sim ply revolutionary, and shows to what extent Ohio Democrats will go to maintain a fraud that has bees clearly established. No stronger proof could have been siven by these absconding Democrats, that they have no faith in tbe justice of their cause. Having resorted to intimi dation and chicanery to prevent any decision losing made, as a last resort they ran away and thus blocked the wheels of legislation. As the receiv er of stolen goods, knowing them to be stolen, is as gtil'.y as the thief, so are these Senators as guilty of fraud us the scoundrels who forged and ahued the election returns. Of ciurse, the friends of Major Montooth, of Pittsburg, who is a candidate for Lieu ten an I tlovernor. do not want the old tic-feet re-nomi- nr.ted. but they are making a great mi.-t.tke in our opinion, by circnlat ing through this county marked copies of tht Chronirlc Tclrgrajih containing an "interview" ot Thom as M. Marshal, E-q.. in which that robust old kicker threatens the Re publican Stat Convention in ad vance, with a reorganizttion of the Independents, acoi'ilion with the Democrats, and sundry other dire consequences if Beaver and Divies are nominated. A reference to the returns of the election in 1832 will show that the Republicans f this county "doa't scare worth a cent," j and they only smile sardonically at the rant of the venerable Thomas. ! But if M ijor Montooth will take counsel of his bet'r ju lemint he will conclude, we think, tint his fool friends are not strengthening his chances by blowing into a blaze the slumbering embers of the unfor tunate revolt of 1SS2. We publish in another column of this paper " A Card n signed by a j cumber of the gentlemen who pro jpose being candidates at the coming j primary election, setting forth that, at their solicitation, Capt. W. II. i Sanner has consented to temporarily take charge of the funds, and super vise the printing and distribution of the necessary blanks and tickets to insure a free and fair primary elec tion. This is a movement in the interest of harmony, and we doubt not that all other candidates will co opt rate in it. Capt. Sanner is thor oughly well known throughout the county, and bis selection for this duty will inspire confidence, and give assurance that it will ba well and honestly discharged. All that the mass of the voters care for, we assume, is that there shall be a full, i fair and free election, held in accord-1 ance with the rules of the party, and j that an oppor tunity be given each voter to cast his ballot for tbe can' didates of his choice. This they will feel ia assured by the selection of Mr. Sanner. We look therefore, for a happy ending ef all the anticipat ed troubles ielative to the June pri maries. " All's well that ends well." Ohio Dcad-Iaock Broke. CoLUMncs, May 9. A settlement of the Senatorial troubles, it is le lieved, has at length been reached. The absence of the Democratic mem bers contributed to a result which it was their puriiose to avoid.

The journal for each day aiDce Tucs Hiv wis read and annroved. no ob jections being offered, and then a motion was adopted to uae irom the table the report of the Republi can members of the Senatorial Com mittoe which made the innuirv into the October election frauds at Cincinnati. Tbe resolution accom panying the report, recommending that the Renublican claimants be seated and take the oath of office, was then adopted Dy a unanimous vica voce vote. The four Republi cans thereupon came forward, took the oath of office, were assigned to seats, and entered upon their duties as Senators. None of the Democratic members were present. Senator Van Cleaf, who had remained to look after their interests, was out of town, and there was nothing to interfere with the Republicans carrying out their Hflrl lit heen nresent to a. U a -- ( demand a call of the Senate and es tablish the fact that there was not a quorum present the Republicans would have been unable to accom plish anything. There is nothing on the journal to show that less than a nnorum was nresent. and it is claimed with confidence that the record will bear out the Republicans in their course. Jeff lias not Itepcnted.

I have nothing to a-ik from them, not even a pardon, for he who seeks a pardon must profess repentauce. I have not re pented. The only thing 1 am sorry for is that we did not succeed. If a Yankee coxes South and behaves himself we are glad to have him." Ohio legislators in iiitling. Chattanooga, May S. Fourteen of the twenty Democratic members of the Ohio State Senate arrived in this city to-day in a special car and are occupying the car, which now stands in the Cincinnati Southern Railway yard. They left Columbus secretly Tuesday night, met at Cov ington, Kentucky, where they took the car for Chattanoogi in order to get beyond the jurisdiction of a pro cess that might be issued to the Ser-geant-at-arms of the Senate. They state that they are merely standing by their constitutional rights and have no intention or disposition to obstruct legislation ; that the appro priation bill has been passed and all important measures disposed of.and they now leave the Senate to pre serve the Constitution of their State and defeat the plans of scheming politicians. They are firm in their determination not to yield an inch and will remain until a compromise is effected. Gen. Arthnra' Condition. New Yokk, May 9.

May 9, The new iron bridge built at Lyonsdale, Lew is county, gave way yesterday, pre cipitating seven workmen and a wreck of twisted iron into Moose river, twenty feet below. Two men escaped by jumping on a pier. One workman, W. A. Wilcox, in leaping to an abutment lost his foothold and was fatally injured. The others swam ashore, although some of them Lad sustained severe injuries. Tbe accident was caused by tbe giving way of a temporary trestle. Beaten by the Striking Miners, Cumberland, Md May "5. A number of miners in the Elk Garden region attempted to go to work this morning at tbe old bgure, but were : attacked near the mines by a large body of strikers and ten of them were badly beaten. They would have been killed bad they not prom- j uea not to enter the mines. 1 be operators will appeal to the West Virginia authorities and another ef fort to start work will shortly be made. AFTER THE BATTLE. Clearing the. Ground ol tbe Hying and Woanned Many r tbe Biotera Fatally Injnred. Chicago, May 5. After the Anarehists had been dis persed the police set to work to look after their wounded and dying com panions. Two;ofthem were found where the bomb exploded, both so desperately wounded as to be past hope of recovery. About JO otners were found lyiiis on the pavement in the vicinity and suffering from pistol-shot wounds in their limbs or bodies and- unable to move hand or fooL The strikers or members of the mob, too, lay wounded and dy ing, but the officers paid no atten tion to them at first, only thinking of their fallen comrades. They pick ed them up and bore those who could not walk or move to the sta tion house and assisted all with but slight wound to walk to their homes. The drug stores and saloons about the scene of the battle were soon filled with wounded men, but it was impossible to get any idea of the number. The fugitives from the scene of the riot poured into Madison street in an irresistable stream. The open stores, which here offered the first shelter, were beseiged and instantly occupied bp a breathless and terror stricken crowd. In the rear of this throne came the wounded at the best speed their injuries would per mit. Men ran at a staggering pace, with the blood trickling through their clothing ; othere rushed fran tically through the streets, shrieking with pain ; couples and small groups came dragging a wounded friend, whom they had the courage to res cue ; several lell fainting in the street and were picked up by sympathetic members of the crowd. FILLING THE DRCa STOKKS. The drug stores in th neighbor hood were invaded iu a few minutes by throngs of groaning, shrieking, cursing men. Two men ran into Bauer's drug store, at ISO Madison street, supporting between them a man who was shot through the neck. They laid their burden on the floor, and thundered out to the frightened clerk : " Medicine ! a doctor ! quick. Get us help or we'll cut your heart out." Just then Dr. Mihte arrived and cared for the wounded man. At long intervals after the riot and late into the night wounded men appear ed at the drug stores or were found roaming the streets, craved with friglitand pain. In every case where the wounded sought relief at drug stores they refused to give their names, end the list of wounded will consequently be never fully known. A boy who failed to find a physi cian etood iu the glare of the electric light at the corner of Madison and liahted streets and with his jack knife cut a bullet from his elbow. The crowd helped to bandage his wound with shreds of his shirt. He refused to give his name and walked off' alone. The squad room of the Desplaines street station half a:i hour after the shooting resemb't'd a charnel house. vVounded and dying poiicemen were lying everywhere. Fifteen wounded offiuers sat in chairs around the room, heroically struggling with fearful pains which racked their bodies, waiting for the arrival ef sur geons. Such a seen is rarely ever seen except on a battle-field. Po licemen who escaped without injury were acting as nurses, assisting the few surgeons who reached the sta tion when the men were brought in. Chief Ebersold and Captains Bon field and Ward were on hand also, and by their command a lare num ber of patrol wagons were called to convey the men to hospitals. the dyi.no officers. Among the first to arrive at the station were five Catholic priests, who immediately busied themselves with the wounded. Their presence and kindly ministrations seemed to cheer up the men, especially those whose injuries were so desperate that there was no hope for their re covery. Officer Timothy Flavin lay on a table in the center of the room, unconscious. Above his heart was a great blotch of red. which told the story of his f.ite. His life was fast ebbing away and the or.ly thing that could be done for him was to minis ter to bis spiritual welfare. Officers George Miller and Thomas Reddin, both fearfully wounded, lay on eith er side of Flavin, one on the iioor and the other on chairs. Miller is fearfully cut and bruised, his limbs were paralyzed by numerous wounds and his body was pierced by six bullets. He smiled cheerfully though, when his foilow-olQcsis ap proached the side of his improvised cot. Reddin, though desperately wounded as Miller, tvas more fully alive to his conditon. Outtdde officers stojl gu.ird around the wagons, eilenily await ing orders from tlit ir superiors. The Bilence wus indicative of ;i great deal, as was shown when the order to fall in was again sent along the line. When the order to march to No. 54 Lake street was passed every man drew bis revolver, examined its workings and in his face assumed a look that boded no good to the hair brained Anarchists of the Spies Parson order. The marcii to the hall was accomplished in quick time, but upon arrival there it was found to be deserted. The ubjuct of the march was to apprehend Spies and Parsons. Considering the tem per of the police the notorious An archists would have fared badly had they fallen into their bands. MANY OF THE RIOTEKS WOUNDED. Along Despl tines Ptreet were cor dons of police, wLo stood L'U ird over the wounded forms of the fallen Anarchists. It w.ts impossible to get any estimate of the number of the latter whe were killed or wound ed, but from the number of forms which lay on the ground the esti mate can be placdd at a high figure, and they were being crammed into tbe Desplaiues street station house as fast as the officers could handle them, and those whose wounds were more serious were taken to the hos pital. Nearly every saloon on Madison street, within two or three blocks of Desplaines street, had two or three rioters tn Mrp fnr V.ro fur rf Ilia ! fellows would give their names. Onei man had Tour bullet holes in him j in the back, face, thigh and foot j and, wito the blood streaming from him, he was a horrible sight Drug stores along Madison street were be set with men seeking medical treat ment, but, owing to the general ter ror, most of the etores refused to receive them. A sad incident of the hospital scene was witnessed when the wives and sisters of the officers, many of i them startled out of tbe beds by the portentous boom of the death-dealing shell, came to claim their dead and wounded. They were not al lowed in the room where the men lay an' their cries of anguish filled J the' station. j SCENES OK ANGUISH. Eariv this morning the scene in; .v "J, .1 : me ceti room, ueto ioo ucuu uu , wounded Socialists were strewn about on the bare floor, was a study j for an artist, la a shadowy corner behind the stairway lay tL'o only corpse in the motley group, its pal lid mid glazed eyes turned toward the ceiling. The man was picked up deid und nothing on his person was found by which he could be identified. His garments were soil ed and ragged and his features be spoke bim a Bohemian or Scandi navian. Ju.t h. the foot of the stairway, where those who descended were compelled to step over his out stretched legs, lay another man, ap parently with only a spark ot life left in him. lie moved occasionally and groaned, and when an officer bent over to ask him where he was hurt, he only shivered and mutter ed: " I'm freezing to death." The physicians and their assist ants were busy with the other vic tims, 6ome of wham were but slight ly wounded, while others had ugly looking bullet holes in various parts of their anatomy. A old mau, with a long gray beard uud a wound in his bead, while it was being dressed sat stolidly on a bench and rtfused to talk to any one. One of the youngest of the group hid a bad bullet wound in bis arm, near the shoulder. He sat in a chair, strip ped to the waist, while the surgeon wns at work ou bim, his thin lip compressed and his eyes gleaming like those of a wild beast, as they wandered from one to another of the laces of police officers and visi tors who were looking ou. Four More Deaths. Chicago, May 9. Officer Timothy Flavin died at the county hospital last night and Officer Michael Shee han died at his home this afternoon.

It is statad that the striker on the Illi nois Central, Michigan Central and Baltimore v Ohio road have an nounced their intention to return to work to morrow. An Old Farmer's Fate. Pix.- i.No, Pa., May 6. Forest fir-s have been raging in this part ot the Pocono Mountains for soma days, doing much damage. The flames threatened the buildings on the Jos eph Brown larm in Barrett town ship. Three of Farmer Brown's sons went out to fight the fire, and their father, one ot the oldest and best known farmers in the township. started to go too, but the sons pre vailed upon him to remain at home. The voung men succeeded, after an hour's hard work in turning the fire away from their premises. When thev returned home thev were surprised to learn that their father had started for the woods af ter thev had left him. They be came al trmed at his absence, and went in search of him. After n long search thev found him :vmu in a field, his clothing entirely burned from his body, which was literally roasted. It is supposed that he bad become surrounded by fire before he knew it, and had dashed through one tide of the fiery circle as the on ly hope of e-scapir.2. As the spot where he was found is over hun dred yards from the nearest burning woods, he inu.-t have run all that distance enveloped in flames. Murder and Abdnction. Wheeling, May 9. A special from Milton states that a cowardly attempt whs made to ussasinate Albion Gates by some unknown man. H was awakoned by a large rock being hurled through the win dow of the room he was sleeping in. Going to the door he was caught by two men who endeavored to mike way with him. A blow aimed at him with a knife fortunately mised, and was deeply imbeded in the door. Gatts sotting his revolver out drove the rutliitns off. They are supposed to be friends of LeU'iier, the man who assaulted the ll-yer old daughter of Gates a short time since. She will be wan ted in a few days to !e;tify before the court, and i i addition to killing her father th scheme doublles was to kidnap her. In case she should disappear 't is certain that Judge Lynch would make Bhort work of Lt liner, who is in jail. A Family Killed by a Train. Ft. Wayne, Ind.. May 9.

I A PollBn j0b That Rendezvoused Near Their Cbnrcb and Marched to tbe Mills Cammiiili to Halt Given la Vain by the Militia Cemmander. Milwaukee, May G. Early this morning a great number of Polos who had participated in yesterday's riot at Bay View were seen, singly and in pair, making their way to ward the large Polish church in the southern part of this city. By 6 o'clock four hundred men were assembled, each with a huge club, crowbar or gome other implement of warfare. The men were formed into line at the order of "Forward march !" proceeded in the direction of Bay View, raising the cry as they went, "Kill the militia and burn the mills I" Major Traemer ordersd the four companies under his comaaand from inside tbe rolling mills enclosure, where they had been in camp dur ing the night, md stationed them in the best position to check tbe mob. As the latttr approached they were ordered to step. No heed was given to the command. a volley of bullets. Major Traemer repeated the ordir and gave fair warning that to ad vance meant certain death. Again the crowd, which was now about l.oOO, ignored the caution and push ed toward the bridge. When he gave the order to fire tbe four companies emptied their guns with a hteady aim. The mob seeing several of their number fall wound ed and tlead, threw themselves flat on the ground and sought the shel ter of ti'o nil mud embankment. The level tf South Bay street and Lin coln avenue beiug higher than the marsh, was also sought by the fran tic men, who tumbled headlong into the water. The firot volley having such a salutary ellect, the miliua again. stacked arms and portions of the routed men returned to the scene of the tragedy. A squad of police also put in an appearuauce and began to assist the wounded. Several of tbe latter were taken to neighboring saloons, dosed with whisky and con veyed to their homes.

The rioters in greater part retreat ed to the section of the city wherein they reiside, iu the Fourteenta ward, and although numerous threats were made to orgmiizeand renew tire at tack on the militia they were not curried out. The excitement through out the Fourteenth ward reached a high pitch ui.d threats of vengeance were heinl on every corner.

South, because of certain utterances of his regard ing Jeflerson Davis. Gov. Foraker has had no idea of attending the Conference, though elected a dele gate. ''So far. he says, '-as what I said about Jell Davis is concerned. I have no apologies to make. Much of the fdin? that seems to have been aroused is due no doubt, to the fact that only a misleading extract of my remark i sennas tj have been published in the Eastern and South ern papers. I should not h-iv- said a word about Jeff Davis, in the sense of speaking about bim a very unimportant man. I referred .o him only in his relation to the people of the South who were honoring him. I respect the soldiers of the South for'tlieir heroism and bra 'ery, but I despise such a man as Davis, who brought so much misery to bis coun try, ami shall i.ever hesitate to say so But here is wh it I said on the subject: 4"l never yet have seen the tim since the war or before the war clos ed when outside of the hostile lines I could not clasp thehauds and have respect for the brave man who could take his, life in his hand and battle for his conviction, though tliey were ever so wrong; therefore it is that I can understand why the people of the South can honor these men who led into that contest, but I cannot understand why they should ever honor men such as Jefferson Davis, who, knowing better, misled them to their ruin in the attempt to destroy the best Government that the ood Lord ever permitted the people to have. Whatever others may represent, this man Jeff Davis, who talks about liberty, represents finly human slavory, the degrada tion of labor, the treason of seces sion and rebellion, the horrors and infamies of Libby and Anderson ville ail, in short, that, is most malicious, and damnable in Amer ican history. To talk of him as an illustrious statesmen, who is to be honored with Washington in his tory, is to insult every sentiment of loyalty and decency in this great C0Untr-T ne wickedly did so much lo e"ov. Higbee Filea a New Boad. II a rms bcrg, Mav 8. Superinten dent Higbee h,i filed a new bond at the State D.-uartnient. his old bond had but two sureties whercn Blood Shed in Iowa. Des. Moines, May S. The first; blood-shed over the attempted en forcement of the new prohibitory law occurred here yesterday. A con stable named Pierce repaired to South Des Moines with a warrant to search the premises of Nym Wyatt, who runs a billiard hall. His efforts were rewarded by the discovery of a small keg bf a beer in the cellar, which he seized and carried to the floor above. Here Mrs Wyatt took hold of the kei arid attempted to recover possession of it, wben Pierce i drew a revolver on her. Harry Lloyd, employed upon the premises, struck down bis arm. The two men thereupon became engaged iu a struggle, which did not end untii tbey had tumbled out of doors and rolled down an embankment, the officer alight'ng uppermost.when he put his pistol against Lloyd's body and fired, following this with a ter rific blow on the head with the re volver. The ball struck a rib and glanced, following it around nearly to the spine,whereit lodged and was extracted. The wound is probably fatal. After the shooting Pierce hastily retreated, but was arrested and plac ed in jail. Great excitemen followed and a large crowd surrounded the court house and freely talked of lynching. Forty armed men guard ed the jail all night and the militia were kept underarms. It is thought that Pierce is slightly demented. He has made many enemies by his methods of searcliiji private houses and other places for liquor. lOOO Miners on a Strike. Pittsburgh, May 6. A thousand miners inaugurated a strike in the Mansfield Vailev to-day and this afternoon held a big open-air mass meeting near Mansfield to make pre parations for waging a determined warfare for what they claim to be right as to rates for mining. There are several questions under discus sinn this time, differing in nature at the various mines. The strikers propose to unite and stand out until everything is conceded. At the Leetsdale, Glenn and Bower Hiil Mines on the Chartiers branch, the men struck because they ware asked to load cars for the Western district. In addition, they want a check weighman and pay every two weeks. The Sumner Hill mines, near Mans field, are shut down to-day because they suspect that the coal which they were loading was being shipped to the E tatern market and, as a con srquence, would operate against the interest of the 2,000 men on a strike in the third district. Sanford it Co., on Tom Run, refused to pay the seventy-one cent scale. Tar Indian Troubles. Gitaymas, Mexico, May 9. A courier from General A. Martinez reports the capture bv Mexican troops of Anil, the central defense of the Yagui Indians. In the fight one Mexican otlicer and eight privates were killed. Chief Cejeme and tiie greater part of his army had left be fore the battle. It is not known how many of the Yaguis were kiiled, but it is believed the war is ended. Captain Lawton. of Troop B, Fourth Cavalry, who is in command of the combined forces in the field, has al ready gone south on the trail of the hostile Indians, who, it is reported, are making for the mountains. H. H. Studt reports Chief Magnus kill ed and claims to have his sca'p. General Miles declares that a vigor ous campaign will be carried on until every hostile is either killed or captured.
