San Francisco, Cal., Sopt. 17. A story comos from good authority at Los Angeles of tho burning of a young squaw by Mnjavo Indians becauso shu was accused of practicing wltohoraft, Tho scene of tho torture was near the Colorado ri'or In the eastern end of San Bomardino county. For tho pust two months a strango diseaso has attacked members of tho tribo. Its sproad at last becamo so alarming that members of tho tribe becamo panlc-striokon and slaughter ed their dogs and burros as sacriilce to appoaso tho anger of tho Great Fa ther. This provingof no avail a coun cil was held. Every buck in tho tribe was present. Tho modiciue men sat around a huge pot whloh was filled with herbs. Whllo tho bucks wore squatting in semi-cirole sotno distance away tho modlcino mou watched tho steaming horbs until the mean hud boon boiled down to a tencupful of liquid. Thon a malo pigeon and his mato j were taken from a basket and hold by a moaicino man wnuo liquid iroin tho horbs woro was poured down tholr throats.

Tho squaws were driven in singlo fllo, with tho medicine men watching with norvous oxcitomont tho faco of each as sho passed tho bird. Finally a young squaw, tho daugh ter of Cresco, a sub-chief, stepped out of tho ranks and was about to plok up the bird whon tho modlcino men, with loud yolls, seized tho girl and pinioned her arms. Tho unfortunate squaw pleaded pitoously for her lifo, which she seemed to foresee was in peril, but her cries were of no avail, her own relatives assisting in dragg ing her to the council placo. The (loath of tho fenialo pigeon was con clusive evidouco that a squaw was tho witch. Tho first squaw to touch tho bird was tho fatal test of guilt. The poor girl who was but 18 years old, was stripped of her clothes, tied to tho statto and a slow 11 ro built under hor. For two hours she iln gored In awful agony, and whllo hor death screams filled the air the bravs dunced about tho firo and med icine nion muttorod incantations.

The arrival in St. Louis of the first through Chicago, Burlington and Quincy trains over, the Wabash tracks was signaled by the refusal of brotherhood engineers, employed as hostlers, to house the Burlington engines and of local Wa bash wipers to clean the enginers, which are standing on side tracks coveted with mud and grease. The boycott did no end here, for when non-brotherhood engineers sought board and lodging they were refused on the ground that the brotherhood men would not eat or sleep in the same house with them, and the men were compelled to come down town for accommodations. The most seri ous aspect of the trouble lies in the fact that the Burlington has a contract with the Wabash which covers the housing of its engines, and it is feared if the Wabash orders its employes to fulfill the contract a strike will iol low.
