LOS ARCOS, Sonora, Mexico, June 24.— Investigation by Americans Into the murder of three American mining men, whose bodies were found in a water hole near this place, shows that the crime was one of the most diabol ical in the history of this section, where crimes of violence are frequent. Robbery was the motive, and there is evidence of the organization of a gang of Mexican bandits whose purpose is to kill American mining men for the double purpose of plundering their out fits and to prevent their securing valu able mines. As to this alleged conspir acy little can be said at present, for the American party, assisted by represent atives of the Government, is conducting an investigation, which is in secret. Four men are under arrest charged with the murders, and it is known they were near the scene of the murders re cently. One of the victims had been shot in the back, , evidently while fish-' ing. The face of another man was beat en and mashed to a pulp by rocks. Fin ger marks in his throat showed that he had been choked. The third man's hands had been tied and he had been gagged. His head was torn by a glanc ing bullet wound, but he had evidently been killed by a knife thrust Just above his heart. They had probably been tor tured... the assassins hoping to learn something of the money ; the party might have had. The first of the three men found .had evidently fought for his life, as pieces of his torn shirt were lying on the bank. Esecial Dispatch to Tbe Call. Scruggs is i>Dout 35 years of ajje.

Reports state that these dissatisfied Indians have pur chased Winchesters, also heavy sup plies of ammunition. Large numbers of the band have held a meeting In the hills and have threatened to kill the members of the Dawes Commission if any attempt is made to force them to take arbitrary allotments. Three years ago Chito Hargo and his band started an uprising in the Creek Nation, which caused no end of trouble to the Government. These Indians have been considered peaceable except when they are stirred up by the lead ers upon some question which they think involves their survival. Then they go on the warpath and indulge in rapid murder and destruction, as in the old days of frontier settlement. Be cause of this they have been carefully watched. Special IMf^atch to The Call.

June 23.— The Morning Leader's Paris correspondent says that the mystery concerning Kent J. Loomls, brother of the assistant Secre tary of State, has been cleared up. "Mr. Loomis," the dispatch says, "appeared in Paris to-day (Friday) and left this evening on his way to North east Africa, accompanied by Mr. Col lins, the son of a v well-known American journalist." AH the morning newspapers, with tha exception of the Morning Leader, treat the disappearance of Kent J. Loomls as a serious affair. None of the special dispatches from Paris confirm the dis patch sent by the Morning Leader cor respondent, saying that Loomls waa seen in Paris yesterday and left last night on his way to Abyssinia. So far as London is concerned the disappear ance of Loomis continues to be shoud ed In the deepest mystery. The Lon don manager of the North German Lloyd line is quoted as saying that the matter has become a serious one, as every effort to find Loomis has failed. Loomls was proceeding to Abyssinia to deliver to Emperor Menelik the re cently * signed cdmmerclal- treaty be tween the United States and Abyssinia.* It has now been arranged with Wil liam H. Ellis, who accompanied Loomls from New York, to proceed to Abyssinia with the treaty, which was in the baggage of Loomls and was brought here from Cherbourg. Ellis left Paris for Marseilles to-day, where he will take the steamer Oxus to-morrow for Jibutll, whence he will proceed inland to the capital of Abys sinia. He will be gone about four months. Ellis positively declines to state whether he had the commercial treaty between the United States and Abys sinia, but It has been learned from a reliable source that the treaty la in his possession. Special Dispatch to The Call. SAN RAFAEL, June 24.— Patrick Ma guire, an inmate of the public alms house in Marin County, learned yes terday that he is a rich man. By the regular legal course his claim to an in terest in a $100,000 estate was estab lished. The friends of theold man were overjoyed at the good news, and they hastened to his humble cot in the In firmary. But there was no smile on Ma. guire's face. "Let me stay here," he replied. "1 long ago knew that some day a part of my sister's wealth would be mine, but I did not ask for it. She did not know I was in this place, and I kept her ig norant of my whereabouts. My days are numbered and I do not need the money. I want to stay here, which is home to me. To go elsewhere would be to enter an uneasy life." - And so Patrick Maguire refuses to desert the life of an Indigent to go even to a hospital, where he would receive every attention that money can supply. A little more than a year ago Mrs. Hugh McDermott.of San Mateo died, leaving a large estate. She left no will, and- there apparently being no direct heirs, relatives have since been contest ing.over a division of the realty. V Maguire knew that by merely estab lishing 'his identity he would be en titled to , a major portion of the estate, but he* kept his secret until recently, when t . he. explained all to the Rev. Father Byrnes. The priest wrote to the executors explaining the circumstances. The rest was a matter of detail. Ma guire will receive his part of the estate. Perhaps he may never enjoy the bene fits of his fortune, for he is now almost 70 years* ~old and paralysis holds him prostrate. Maguire is a pioneer of the State. He came to Marin County forty-two years ago and accumulated a fortune, but it dwindled away by reverses, and for more than a year he has been a pauper. - - TBS THEATSSS. Alcazar- — "Lover** Laae."
