AMERICANS IN DANGER. In the Yaqui Two Tlioimuml Mil Country.

They were driven out by marauding bauds of Y aqnl Indians. Thomas Marvell, one of the members of the party, who formerly lived in Austin, stated that there are probably 3,000 American miners and prospectors scattered throng'll the Yaqui country and that their lives are in imminent danger, as the Indians are getting bolder and more desperate each day. Marvell said that the news of the ily outbroad among the Yaquis in the lower valley had not reached the upper part of the stream when lie left, and that as soon as such news is re ceived by the scattered bands of Indi ans in the placer mining region they will massacre every white man along the river. Me estimates that there are 5000 Yaqui braves and that it will take a force of fully 40,000 Mexican troops to conquer them if ttiey are enabled to reach their former strongholds in the Hauharlpa range of mountains. During the two years the Indians have been at peace they have been quietly invest ing tlicir earnings in arms aud ammu nition, and they are now better equipped than ever for a long and bloody campaign. bh A MAJOR'S TRIBUTE.
