Indians refuse to accept the decree of the
military ..governor of Sonora, Mexico,
which, declares their lands confiscated by
the state and open to settlement. These
lands are extremely valuable for agricul
tural purposes and comprise a large tract
lying along the Taqul River, in the sub
tropical region. They have been held and
occupied by the Yaquis for centuries, even
prior to -the Spanish conquest, and the
unremitting hostility of the Indians to the
Government has been due to the fear that
their lands v were about to be taken from
The Government hopes that by depriv
ing them of the lands they will be forced
to vacate the country, and the trouble
some tribe be thereby broken up and scat
tered. The Indians are stttj up In arms
and will not respect the Government de
cree. Although they have suffered heavy
losses in battle during the past few years
they ( still have a well-equipped army of
not less than 1000 braves. This army is
divided into many small detachments,
that harass the Government troops when
ever they are found and devastate the
outlying districts, killing, burning and
pillaging. ¦ ' ¦ ~

Atherly says that he i could not recog

he believes they were , union men who
took this method of running him from the
camp because he had but recently refused
to Join the union. He has no enemies that
he knows of except those made through
this refusal. He had been employed at
the mine for a short time only, having
previously had charge of the city electric

up over the affair, as it is the second re

The summons not being an unusual one,
he arose hastily, and soon after he left

him to step off ten paces.' He did so, and
then broke into a run, whereupon several
shots were fired at hlm.^One of them

Czar is attached, to her still, but his
chagrin at his recent disappointment is
unconcealed and his anxiety to have an

ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 21.— The Czar
ina's position is .growing extremely pre
carious at court, for although divorce is
forbidden by the orthodox Greek church
there is a strong feeling, shared by peas
ants and aristocrats alike, that some
means should be found by the holy synod
to set her aside for a wife who is likely
to bear the Czar an heir to the throne.
Pobiedonostzeff, procurator of the holy
synod, who through the agency of his
popes has already undermined the Czar
ina's position with the masses because he
believes her adoption of the orthodox
faith insincere, is suspected of fomenting
this agitation for a divorce.

complaint General Salazar replied that he

It seems these orders were misinter
preted In Colon, where Commander Mc-
Lean saw an obstacle .placed on the rail
road track last Thursday. Two soldiers
who stopped a train at Monkey Hill, just
f outside of Colon, acted without superior
orders, and are reported to have been se
verely punished for so Joing by General
Feran. It was after this occurrence that
Commander McLean declared the traffic
over the isthmus to have been interrupt
ed, and decided to place American guards
on the trains.
On Friday, the 19th, Commander Mc-
Lean sent communications to the Colom
bian Government and to the insurgent
general, Herrera, in which he said:
"No armed men except naval forces of
the United States will be allowed on or to
use the railroad line.
This declaration that the railroad could
rot be used for transportation of armed
Government troops has created resent
ment in conservative circles, where it is
considered as an attack upon Colombia's
sovereign rights on the isthmus. General
Salazar declines to express any opinion on
the subject
General Quintero, General Salazar's
most able lieutenant, has been stationed
in Colon. He seems to have established
very cordial relations with Commander
McLean, who Invited him to luncheon on

It is reported that General Salazar, in
a communication addressed yesterday to
the acting American Consul here, insisted
that Commander McLean should guaran
tee to him the rights of the Colombian
Government to transport troops and mu
nitions of war by rail across the isthmus.
General €alazar has received no answer
to this communication.
Bef ugees From the Isthmus Say Situ-
etion Is Critical.
KINGSTON, Jamaica, Sept 2L— The
British steamer La Plata arrived here to
day frcm Colon, bringing a large number
of refugees from the isthmus. It is re
ported that owing to the fear of rebel at
tacks a great many people are leaving
Colon and Panama. The Colombian Gov
ernment is still sending reinforcements to
the isthmus and the Plata carried 1000
Government troops from Savanilla to Co
lon. The- Colombian revolutionists are
eaid to be massing in the neighborhood of
the railroad of the isthmus. Tlie refu
gees declare the situation at, Panama and
Colon to be extremely critical.
The officers of the Plata say they were
informed while at Colon that several Lib
eral sympathizers had been imprisoned at
Panama because they violated the order
recently issued by the Government and
appeared on the streets of that city.
Business at Colon is entirely suspended.
The plan of the revolutionists would
seem to be to attack the Government
forces without interfering with railroad
traffic over the isthmus.

SARATOGA, N. Y., Sept. 2L- Not in
many years has there been, two nights
before the assembling of a New York
State Republican convention, such placid
ity as exists to-night. Undoubtedly this
is because by far the majority of the se
lections for the State ticket have been
practically agreed upon. Governor Odell
will be renominated. The contest for
Lieutenant Governor ended .to-night,
when it was announced that the delega
tions from New York, Weatchester and
Erie .counties had decided to go into the
convention pledged for George R. Shel
There is little or no. platform talk to
night. The planks on trusts, the tariff
and canals are the only ones that cause
any discussion, the tax question having
been generally outlined in the speeches
of Governor Odell. There has not yet
been anything definitely decided on the
trust plank, except that, while condemn
ing certain combinations of capital, there
will be no appeal to Congress for drastic
legislation. This statement is on the au
thority of Platt, who added that the draft
of the plank was not complete.
On the tariff question the indications
are that a definite stand will be taken
against revision, on the ground that the
benefit to be gained will be small as com
pared with the injury that will be done
to American industries and workingmen
by an opening of the question of revision.
Nearly all the party leaders are here.
A great deal' of the detail of the conven
tion has been arranged. Lemuel E.
Quigg, who is to be temporary chairman,
will not be here before to-morrow morn
ing, and Edward Lauterbach, who is said
to be framing the platform, is not yet

N. N. Stranahan, Collector of the Port
of New York, said to-night: "The plank
in- the platform indorsing : President
Roosevelt's administration • and his candi
dacy to succeed himself will be as strong
as any close adherent of the President
can wish for." •
Governor Odell sent word here to-night
that he positively would not come to Sa
ratoga during the convention. It had
been planned that he should come on
Wednesday, the last day of the conven
tion, so that he might be the personal re
cipient of the nomination. He says posi
tively to-night that he believes it would
be undignified for the Governor of New
York to. attend the convention for any
purpose. ." • .' ¦¦ : . . -¦";
