Very serious depredations have been committed south of the line. In Sonora many per sons have been killed and many driven out of the country. Both Mexican and United States troops have been actively pursuing the hostiles. As fast as possible the troops are being placed where they will be likely to intercept them should t] . ;iius on tlicil . n ne? an( l WC re not only in terfer j nR w itli the running of the trains, they attempt to move north. The bal ance will keep as close to Geronimo's camp as possible, wherever they may go. The difficulty with the Nava joes lias, I think, been satisfactorily settled and troops placed in the threatened district. The Mexicans are reported well disposed and all at work. .Strike on the Utah & Northern. The trouble which lias been brewing among the Utah & Northern brakemen since about the first of March culminated Wednesday night in a general strike along the road. At Eagle Rock, Idaho, the chief railroad town between Ogden and Butte, a meeting of brakemen was held, at which it appears to have been deier mined to inaugurate a strike. When the north-bound passenger traiu reached there at 10 o'clock the engine was uncoupled aud the engineer was given an explanation of the situation and.told to run his train into the round house, which lie did. The brakemen refused to take their places ou tiie train, and the attempt to run it was for the time abandoned. Later the brake men agreed not to interfere with the run ning of the mail and express cars, and they were sent forward, but the passen gers remained at Eagle Rock. All freight traffic was in a few hours suspended all over the road. The passenger train be tween Garrison and Butte was run Thurs day with Conductor West forming the en tire crew outside the locomotive. Ore and fuel trains between Anaconda and Butte are laid up and a general suspension of traffic is the result. In attempt was made to run the ore train from the Anaconda mine but the coupling pins had been drawn and concealed, and as a consequence work in the mine was suspended. To add to the trouble hoodlums had ditched a lumber train at the depot, completely blocking the track. The grievances of which the brakemen complain and the reasons given for the strike are as follows: On the first of last March a general order was issued to pay conductors, brakemen and baggage men by the run instead of by the month. A certain number of miles was to constitute a day's work and the run on active duty must be made to entitle them to the pay. A run on a dead caboose, one not attached to its regular train, was not counted. This order created the greatest dissatisfaction among the employes, especially the brake men. Their runs were slow, and often they were sent over a division on a dead caboose, consuming their time without pay. Committees were appointed to wait upon the officials of the road, but got no redress of their grievances, being put off without satisfaction. This is understood to be the primary cause of the strike, though the disposition may have been stimulated by the numerous other strikes all over the country. Governor Hauser was telegraphed to by the managers of the road to the effect that the brakemen had taken possession of but withholding the mails as well. They asked if they could expect protection from the territory. The governor replied that the laws of the territory are ample to protect property and would be enforced. As a result of the strike the great Ana conda smelter shut down Thursday even ing, and will probably remain closed for thirty days, throwing from 500 to 600 men out of work at that place, in addition to about 200 employed in the mine at Butte. Defrauding a Widow. Andrew Stevenson, a former clerk of the probate court of Lewis and Clarke county, and who was censured by the grand jury of last year for gross irregular ities, was arrested iu Helena on Monday on a warrant charging him with appropri ating to bis own use $1,300 paid into that court in March last, to liquidate a judg ment against the estate of of J. Y. Stew art, deceased. The complainant, Cathe rine Stewart, has a fine rancli in that county, and the $1,300 represented the last claim against it, a part of which she was compelled to borrow. The prisoner, who is the son of a Kentucky ex-governor, is described as a big, beefy fellow, with unmitigated gall, and is said to have thrashed a Helena coirespondent of the Pioneer Pres3 several months since for reporting his crooked transactions. He was arraigned before Judge Armitage on Tuesday where, after the examination of several witnesses, the counsel for the de fense stated that further examination would be waived, and the prisoner was held in the sum of $2,000 bail to await the action of the grand jury. Elkhorn Mining District. T. J. Nicholson, one of the leading spirits of Elhorn, tarried a few moments at the Sentinel office Thursday morning en route to Helena. lie is enthusiastic over the prospects of Elkhorn, and thinks that this summer will develop wonders for that camp. He says the Jim Keene looks better every day, and that a day or two ago a marvelous strike was made, the ore of which runs $300 in silver, with a profitable show ing of gold. The two prospects adjoin ing are in good shape and coming to the front. The Elhorn camp is a fixture, and bids fair to rival Butte.—Jefferson Sentinel.
