Early this morning they went to the home
of J D Bruce and tried to induce him to
take them to some friends they claimed to
have near the Burlington Missouri rail
way As they could not tell their friends
names Mr Bruce became suspicious of
them and concluded thoy were the train
robbers He agreed so make the trip for
them but told them to stay at his house
until he went to a neighbors to borrow a
spring wagon This the men agreed t do
and Mr Bruce instead of going for a i
wagon went to S G Barnes a neighbor
a sent him into Wood Lake for assist
ance C A Johnson William Day L
Meyers and another man armed themselves
and proceeded to capture the fugitives
which was done very easily us the men
were neatly trapped and made but little re
sistance The outlaws are brothers their
names are J A and Velmoro Herron and
they live near Battle Creek Neb where
they claim t have friends who will help
them out of their scrape

The Rocky Mountain News Sold
DENVER Colo July 31 Special tele
gram to THE HERALP For some days
rumors have been current that the Rocky
Mountain Actos has been sold and that the i
new management would run it in the inter
est of that faction of tho Republican party
in Colorado at present represented in the
United States Senate Senator Teller has
denied that he has any interest In tho tran
saction but it i understood his friends
have chipped into the pooL The only
names mentioned in connection with the
purchase are thoso of Henry Wolcott his
brothor the Senator and exPostmaster
General Clarkson These it is understood
furnished the bulk of the funds while the
others are in for lesser amounts The price
named is 100000 which is thought to be a
mask t cover the real sum as an option
was secured on the not
paper long ago by
1 another party at a quarter million which
they declined after an examination made of
the assets I is said that Griffith mana

been waging a relentless war upon them
for many months past but with what suc

the capital and telegraph service secured
and other arrangements perfected to launch
another afternoon paper within the next

THE RACES YESTERDAY
Lady Almont Silas jr Elder Lucas and
Smoky Jim the Winners
Race No 1 at the Driving park yesterday
was the match between McGinty
pacer
and Lady jUmout trotter for 3 purse of
100 The lady downed McGinty I one
two three order always letting the
letting gray
pilot tho way the first half Tho three
wooden men in the judges stand woke up
to announce the result of the decisive heat
of the race in 2JO but said not a word
about the others The monied men of the
sporting fraternity were cautious well
they might be and Davis tho Chinese
impersonator did more scolding than pool
selling Tho young cyclone and dust
storm struck thetrack during the progress
thecrack
of this race
THE SECOND RACE
No 2 like the first was a match race
for an oven hundred between Mormon Boy
trotter and Silas jr side wheeler The
boy did the wiggler up handily Time 243
In tho second heat the tables were turned
and Silas got there first but only by a
neck Thornberg pulled his arms sore try
ing to hold the pacer bi ck and succeeded m
keeping him on even terms to near the
finish but the junior animal had evidently
ovidenty
not been educated up to ways that aro
dark and tricks that are vain and despite
fthe efforts of his driver the horse took the
I
r >
t
bit in his teeth and pulled tho chuckling
crt in ahead in 24G The fraud was too
apparent and yet the succeeding heat was
a repetition of it without a word of cen
sure from that trio of wiseacres Thornberg
resorted to every trick in i trade to make
his horse trail and when he found the race
could not be thrown any other way ho
actually fouled tho other horse on the home
stretch but the sleepy judges did not see
i and Silas took theheat in 245 regard
less of the thcle bookmakers gave
him
himTho
Tho Mormon then came forth and trotted
a heat out in 238 and Thornberg did not
have to work so hard to keep Silas in tho
rear but the way ho hugged the extremo
outside on all tho turns made it look like he I
was still afraid of getting there oven at
that clip
Silas is ahead in the fiftl heat after try S I
ing to go over time fence to the stables and
taking still another rest up against the out
side rail on the backstretch but the know
ing ones across the way decided dead
heat and there must be still another
warming up in the racthft farce before the
few dollars that havo been entrusted tb the
loader mercies of the poolbox can be paid
outTom
Tom McCoy is up behind the Boy for the
final struggle but as it has been apparent
from the start so it i apparent still that
on their merits Silas lest win Well he
did handily in 239 aid the pool support
ers were righteously mad
THE THIRD RACE
Knee No 3 was a straight pace 575 a cor
ner betweon Elder Lucas Lydia Allen
Busby and Tanglefoot Allen was the only
actual competitortae Elder had and she
failed to make it interesting him nf The
beautiful black came home under a strong
pull in 237
The Elder won second and third heats in I
245 and 238 almost < Without sweating a
hair Tanglefoot was not in the race from
thehfirri n n i n tr
THE RUNNING RACE
Smoky Jim and BillyAV wereup for the
quarter and repeat run Jim smoked
Billys jacket to the tune of 26 andS sec
onds in first and thirdhoats The little bay
got the middle heat but that threeply ag
gregation of colossal wisdom at the other
end of the wire decided IlnO goand again

CITY OF MEXICO July 31 Geronimo
Pau confidential agent oi the Ezeta gov

of between Salvador
peace and Guatemala
said the army of Salvador is in a most
excellent position to demand an honorable
peace Our countrhas not been the ag
gressor he said Guatemala has en
deavored to dictate to us who shall be our
president she has been too meddlesome
and has received a practical object lesson
that will make her more cautious in future
how she interferes in our internal affairs
The offices of the United States and
Mexico in bringing about peace between
Salvador and Guatemala will be appre
ciated Our country docs not want war
but we walt an honorable peace that will
guarantee that there shall be no inter
meddling in our internal political affairs
fioin outside Central Americanrepublics
Guatemalan minister was seen in the
afternoon He says he will have no news
uiltil a decisive battle ha oeen fought be
tween his country and Salvddor but he
cannot snggest when this culminating
event will take place
In the last six battles in Guatemala be
tween the army of the republic and that of
Salvador the latter are reported as having
obtained the most complete and decisive
victories over their enemies The battles
were fought near and in Jutiapa twenty
four miles from Atescatempa the main
thoroughfare to the city of Guatemala
where Barilas had mobilized a strong army
to intercept the triumphal Salvadpriau
force Considering that all the prominent
eminences and they are many were forti
fied between Atescatempa and Jutiapa and
that the Salvadorians were fighting against
great numerical ds their victories are
the more remarkable
The Guatemalan army owing to its re
peated defeats poor discipline and because
the reinforcements had been overmarched
was no match for the well disciplined
troops of Salvador and was forced to yield
fortification after fortification to the en
emy It is impossible to get the exact
number of troops engaged in battlejat pres
ent owing to the fact that both armies have
been reintorced but the number will not
fall much short of thirtyfive thousand of
which some twenty thousand were Guate
malans I is stated that the report of a
revolution in the departments of eastern
Guatemala comprising Jutiapa Chiqui

FOR LABORING MEN
owderlys Address to Them on
the Force Bill
USE IN THE PRICE OF SILVER
low It Affects the Jewelry Trade Silverware
Has Advanced 15 per Centum
The Cause
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
PITTSBCRG July 31General Master
Workman Powderly has addressed a letter
to the Knights of Labor in which ho ar
raigns tho federal election or force bill in
the most vigorous manner saying therein
more intimidation in four lines of that law
than in all the southern outrages that havo
occurred since the war He says Shorn
of the verbiage the bill is intended to per
petuate the existence of the party in
power and besides intended to encourage
fraud Section 9 is in direct violation of
tile contract by which the several states
arc bound to tho Uwited States and is a
most unwarrantable interferenco in the
legislation of the sisterhood of states It
is claimed this law will enable tho colored
citizens to vote free from intimidation and
influence That may be true outside of
polling places but it simply transfers tho
intimidation ana influence to the inside of
the polling booth Why not act the part of
men and say that colored men are not fit to
have a vote for that is what they mean
If there is a body of men in this land who
do not know enough to defend their ballots
with their lives at the polls then that body
of men are not the kind to be privileged to >
vote for those who make laws for others
The Democratic party does its best to
intimidate the colored citizens of the south
and they give as a reason that if they did
not do so they would bo subject to negro
rule down there or as they put it ignor
ant rule The workmen of the north have
never imposed ignorant rule where they
elected their own representatives
The letter goes on to say Our laws
should not bo framed in such a way as tov
recognize ignorance or illiteracy for
to recognize illiteracy is to perpetuate it
Every law should aim at the abolition of
illiteracy and instead of making laws to
guard uneducated men at the polls wo
should make laws to guard the republic
against illiteracy by obliging all voters to
know bow to read and write before rot
log Powderly calls on the knights to voice
their sentiment and suggests thai the
name of every Congressman who voted for
the bill be published to the world and citi
zens who are opposed to such highhanded
methods should scratch them on the next
election day
The Rise In the Price of Sliver
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
CHICAGO July 31The Daily News this
morning Thursday prints the following
This is not a particularly brisk or lively sea
san for the lewelry trade butneverthe
esi the jewelers and silversmiths oC
Chicago have made at least 10000 within
he last ten days They would have made i
his much if there had not been a sale
made in that time It has been done in a
legitimate manner and their united thanks
are due the Congress which enacted the
new silver bill Congress says that on
August 13 the government shall begin to
buy 4500000 ounces of silver per month for °
which certificates shall be issued in return
and the bullion kept in storage This
government demand represents an
amount of bullion which will drain all
available resources England wants silver
just now to send to India in payment for
wheat and cotton and makes an earlier de
mand than usual because of the action of
the government on this side The two
contending forces are fighting for silver
and as a natural consequence silver is ad
vancing in price Already the price of
bullion has advanced 15 per cfcnt and ia
now worth nearly ono dollar and fifteen
cents an ounce The price of all manu
factured silverware has advanced in pro
portion and hence it happens that the
wholesale and retail dealers in Chicago
have been marking up goods and saying
nothing to the public about it They have
not called in the reporters to notify them
that silverware is becoming as valuable as
gold but have maintained a discreet and
united silence
When a News reporter made the rounds
of the wholesale and retail houses yester
day he found a general disposition on the
part of the dealers to be reticent in dis
cussing the matter although all were ready
to admit that silver had advanced in value
13 per cent Edward Foreman superin
tendent at Spauldings was not one of the
close mouthed ones Silver has gone away
up said he and it means money in our
pockets for wo have a large stock ot manu
factured ware on our hands Wo received
notice one week ago last Monday from the
manufacturers that prices had advanced 15
per cent owing to the rise in bullion occa
sioned by the adoption of the silver bill Of
course our prices went up in consequence A
fiveounce watch case is worth about sevety
live cents more than it was before All ware
made of sterling silver and what we call
nlatware has advanced about 15 per cent
in pries Hollow ware has not advanced so
much because its principal cost Is in the
work done on it rather than the material it
self 1 do not understand why any of the
silversmiths should hasitate to give tee s
facts in the case Our stock has increased
in value from 5 to 8 per cent within u week
and I am glad of it Silver will got higher
before it drops again and the bullion will
reach 1 IS probably although I do not
anticipate any higher figure than that The
price is already higher than it has been for
six years
