LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEERS OF SONORA RAILWAY ON STRIKE THIS WEEK Demanding Release of One of Their Number Incarcerated on Account of Unavoidable Accident. Beginning Wednesday evening the trains of the Sonora railway ceased running on account of the incarceration of one of their num ber at liermosillo, for having run over a man Saturday evening near La Union, the junction of the Her-m"-i!lo branch with the main line alout two miles from the capital city. Coming from Guaymas Saturday veiling, on the regular passenger train due at Nogales Sunday morn ing, Engineer Jesse Kit was so unfortunate as to strike a deaf man who was walking on the track in the dark. As soon as the loco motive headlight showed t he man on the truck Engineer Kits sound ed all the signals, and immedia tely made every effort to stop, seeing1 that the man paid no at tention to signals. Returning to Guaymas Sunday night and reaching there Monday morning Mr. Uitz was instructed by the authorities to return to liermosillo for examination, which he dil the same evening. Tues day a demand was made, it is re ported, that he give bail in the uin of $5,000, for his release until .final report and adjudication of the case. It is reported that the company declined to furnish the bail, alleging that the demand is illegal, and in violation of recent regulation from the Department of Communication and Public Works, at the City of Mexico. Another report is that the authorities re fused to accept, bail, which the company tendered. At this time neither report is verified. Upon this refusal Mr. Uitz was placed in jail to await the slow process of in vestigation, which has at times re quired several weeks. It is further reported that im mediately upon learning of the in carceration of their fellow employe the locomotive engineers of the road notified the company that un less Uitz were released forthwith they would not turn a wheel. At any rate, Wednesday evening wheels ceased turning. When the train that left Guaymas Wednes nesday afternoon reached liermosi llo it remained there, the engineer refusing to pull out unless Uitz were released; and when the train that left Nogales at eleven o'clock the jsame evening, reached the Sonora capital, the engineer pulling it likewise refused to proceed; both trains remaining at that station. It is reported also that freight trains have stopped running also, all engineers refusing to take their locomotives out from division ter minals. No train left Nogales on the regular passenger schedule Thursday evening, and it is report d that the situation was the same jit Guaymas. The engineer at Xogales refused to go out, for the j-ame reason advanced by all others; and at Guavmas there was i no one to bring out a train, as the! entire train crew whose turn it was! to come north were sidetracked atj liermosillo, awaiting the result of j the negotiations that were in hand. for release of the incarcerated en gineer. At this writing, Friday noon, there is no change in the situation. The train due to leave Thursday evening stands on the siding on the Sonora side of the line, with! the Pullman which should lie at tached standing just at the line on the Arizona side, where the switch engine left it Thun-day evening,) the engineers in the vard refusing! to cross over for any purpose what ever, until the situation is cleared by release of Engineer Uitz. . The car is filled with passengers going into Sonora, who are doing all they can to make the most of their forced detention. P. S. As these forms were going! to press information was received that Uitz has been released on bonds, and the first train is about to pull out from Nogales, Sonora. Bazaar.

Sunday afternoon St. Andrews church was crowded to the very en trance, and large numbers who could not gain access stood in si lent reverence outside, wfth the friends of thedeseased Town At torney, Edward W. Amsden, gathered to pay the last sad tri bute of respect, before the transmis sion of his remains to his former home in Ormond, Florida, for burial there. The hearse bearing the remains was escorted from the residence of Doctor Doherty to the entrance of the church by the Nogales Concert Band, of which deceased was the organizer and an ever active mem ber. As the coffin was carried into the church followed by the mourn ing relatives, the sorrowful cortege was met at the entrance by the rector. Reverend Franklin Davis, who, reading the opening sen tences of solemn and impressive service for the dead, preceded it down the aisle to the chancel, where the collin was rested, and banked with flowers; and the beautiful and consoling service was concluded, the rector being assisted by a full choir, under the capable direction of the Choirmaster, Mr. M.

Stock Market. Kansas City, November 23, 1900 The cattle supply this week has been moderate, held down some what by the storm first of the week, and the market has been stronger each day, a general advance of 5 to 15 cents being recorded. Med ium grass cows are an exception, buyers claiming they are going back, since the frost, and this kind are 10 lower today than Monday. Generally speaking the cow market has . been highest of the year this week. Total supply this week 57,000 head, including" 7000 calves, a decrease of 7000 had from the total last week. Demitnd for stockers and feeders is larger than the supply, and as offerings of this class are less each week, it is predicted that they will make further advances. Fed steers are selling advantagiously, prices on them around 1.00 per cwt higher than at this time a year ago, and this premium likely to be main tained. Cattle receipts for Nov ember show a shortage from last November. The large crop of corn in the West is keeping many thousands of cattle off the market till they are fattened, which will result in a more even distribution of the receipts throughout the year, and a more regular and sat isfactory market. Sheep and lambs generally lack quality, as the range offerings run largely to medium grades of both killing and stock stuff, and no prime fed stuff has yet been re ceived. The market is 10 to 20 cents higher than a week ago. Colorado range lambs sell at 10.25 to $7.00, fed native and western lambs to 10.7-5 to $7.25, fed year lings $5.75 to $0.25, wethers $5.25 to $5.05, ewes $4.75 $5.25. The season for feeding stock is about over and market on same is slug gish, lambs selling at $5.50 to $0. 00, breeding ewes $4.25 to $5.00, feeding sheep $3.50 to $4.25. A better class of stuff is looked for from now on, and a stronger mar ket. J. A. Rickakt, L. S. Correspondent. Strange Fatality Among Calves. Prescott Courier: According to statement of T. B. Carter, the Walnut Grove stockman, a mister ions disease is causing the death of a large number of the spring calves, the nature of which the cattle men have been unable to de termine, in spite of diligent inves tigation. "Over a dozen calves have died in my neighborhood during the last ten days," Mr. Carter said, "and so far no one has been able to account for the disease. . The calves die suddenly, and it appears that none but fat ones become vic tims of the mysterious sickness. While riding among a bunch of cattle, a few days, I noticed a fat calf feeding from its mother, only to return about thirty minutes later to find it lying dead at the cow's feet. All of the stock men are investigating the sudden death of some of their best stock, and while several theories have been advanced, I am satisfied that the real cause of the trouble has not yet been discovered. It is feared that in addition-to those already discovered dead, a number are dead on the ranges. Some think that larkspur is the cause, while others attribute the fatal malady to some other sources." Tucson Citizen: N. W. Bernard made a big shipment of cattle to day. There vverelGOO steers in the bunch and the shipment was one of the largest made here for some time. The cattle are all "feeders" and will be shipped to central Cal ifornia. Mr. C. W. Bankerd of Duquesne was a Visitor at Nogales Saturday of last week.
