It is report ed here that a party of Mescalero Apache Indians killed two herders and one miner about twenty miles from this place to-day. Thirty-eight citizens have started out after the bodies of the mur dered men. MitrtfcrouM niPNcitleroa. Santa Fe, N. M., August 4. The New Mexican has information partly from the military headquarters and partly private that the raiding Mescalero Apaches have succeeded in crossing the Rio Grande, and are now in the San Ma teo Mountains. They have been close ly pursued by Lieutenant Guilfoyle, but have managed to commit several more murders. In their manner of carrying out their fiendish plans they show'that the mantle of Victorio has fallen on no unworthy shoulders. On August 1st a number ot them Icit their main camp in the San Mateo range on amurdcring and robbing expedition. . They first sighted a miner alone at his work, and murdered him before he was aware of their presence. Their object being, no doubt, to secure his grub stake. Two herders soon shareuthis unfortunate man's fate, and their bod ies were robbed and left unburied on the plains. As soon as this news reached San Marcial, which is only about thirty live miles distant from the scene of the killing a large party consisting of twenty-six Americans and ten Mexicans started in pursuit. The Indians got wind of their approach, and knowing that tliey would iiave to pass through Red Canyon, waited in that desolate spot for their appearance. The citizens stopped in the canyon for a lunch and while, eating were set upon by the hostiles, and being taken by surprise, they lied. The Indians killed one of the party and seven horses, then descended from the side of the canyon and captured all their remain ing horses and were oft' before the party could recover and make head against them. This fight occurred on the sec ond inst. and since then nothing has been heard of the Indians. Lieutenant (iuilfoyle arrived at Fort Craig on the 1st after pursuing the reds for fifteen days. lie came in to outfit again and by this time is no doubt again in the field. Kicking: About Hail ling. Toronto, Canada, Aug., 4. The gov ernment papers say regarding the story that Canada was using U. S. mail bags that is equally true that the United States are using Canadian pouches, though the balance of trade is probably against the United States the matter is somewhat trivial for international ex citement, and will speedily be adjusted. The papers intimate that the United States postal authorities are venal in the matter. Washington, Aug., 4. Col. Thomp son, Superintendent of the Railway Mail Service says positively that the Postmaster at Montreal, made mistakes in saying that the United States use Ca nadian mail bags. Col. Thompson says the Government does not use any Canadian mail bags in transporting domestic mails. He has telegraphed to the Postmasters at Detroit and New York asking them if they ever use Ca nadian mail bags in sending U S. mails, and is confident they will reply they do not. Thompson says Canada uses our man bags but we uo not use theirs. Marvin Meannetts. New York, Aug., 4. Tribune, Lake Wood, N. Y., special: Thomas Mar vin who married and deserted a young lady oi Kicumond, Virginia, last month is identified as Albert L. Marvin who on July lflth married a young widow of Lakcwood and shortly after abandoned her. On Tuesday a telegram was re ceived from Richmond to the chief-of-police accurately describing the Lake wood man, and saying that if he ap peared, his arrest was desired. The telegram removes all doubts as to the identity of Thomas Marvin and Albert L. Marvin, consequently he is now wanted at Richmond for forgery and in New Jersey for bigamy. Female Striker. New Brunswick, N. J., Aug. 4. One hundred and fifty female operatives in the Novelty Rubber Company struck to-day for ten per cent, increase of 'salary. lie Continues to Improve.

The 12:30 examination has just been made with a result of pulse 90, temper ature and respiration normal. The pa tient continues taking increased' quan tities of nourishment and is daily gain ing in strength.

Consider him out of danger. In response to interrogatories relative to moving the patient from the Execu tive Mansion the Doctor says: Nothing couio. be determined on as rue t resi dent was in no condition to move. He thought, however, that when the prop er time came a trip down the Potomac would be beneticial and hasten his re covery. From AcroK the Water. BRADLAltíH NOTES. London, Aug. 4.

London, August 4. In the House of Commons Gladstone gave confirmation of the news of the signing of the Trans vaal convention. Replying to a ques tion by Cowan, Radical, as to whether the Irish subjects would be released or granted trial, Gladstone said the Gov ernment was bound from time to time to consider the circumstances on which they had obtained exceptional power, but his answer, he said, must not be considei'ed as foreshadowing any decis ion. Trevelain, Secretary of the Admiralty gave confirmation of the report that two torpedo boats had been built in the United States for the British Govern ment. The Under Foreign Secretary, re specting the opium trade with Japan and other matters affecting foreign res idents said the Government had agreed to negotiate relative to a revision with Japan, and was now in communication witn other treaty powers on the subject.

The sentence was postponed, . The Mint Mix. San Francisco, August 4. At the mint investigation to-day James W. Crawford, Superintendent of the Car son mint testi lied that he had received Northern Belle bullion and with one exception all deposits were below 900 fine. That tho company was notified that if the bullion was not up to stand ard, refining charges would be impos ed after a certain time, when they ceas ed sending their bullion to the Carson mint. The prosecution introduced a num ber of letters from F. Lowe, manager of the Anglo-Californian Bank, which institution controlled the Northern Belle mine, to Mr. Crawford regarding the action of Crawford in imposing re fining charges. This was done with a view of showing that the bank must have had some advantage in sending the bullion to the San Francisco mint, one hundred and fifty miles further from the mine than the Carson mint. The letters were principally to the question put by Lowe whether parting and refining charges would be imposed on Northern Belle bullion, having cop per bse and requesting the Superin tendent of the Carson mint to give that bullion as fair a trial as it had received at the San Francisco mint and that if he did it would be more advantageous to have the bullion go to Carson than come to San Francisco, but that if charges were imposed and they had to pay expressage on the silver dollars the instructions from the clerks of the Sub-Treasury in San Francisco was not to permit the payment of silver dollars at the Sub-Treasury as it would be cheaper to bring the bullion for melt ing and refining to San Francisco. Counsel for prosecution stated he would show that the Anglo-Californian bank had for the last three and a half years been purchasing Northern Bell bullion at a large discount on the un derstanding that the bullion was sub jected to parting and refining charges, when in reality no such charges were being imposed by Superintendent Dodge. One of the commission said, while he admitted such fact being es tablished it would show sharp practice on the part of the bank, and it would not reflect upon Dodge or the manage ment of the mint, whereupon counsel said he would show that Dodge was a party to the arrangement, but he failed to do this, and after efforts to bring in the testimony the commissioner de clared irrelevant, he announced the bul lion part of the investigation was through with. The political phase of the inquiry was then taken up, but no testimony was introduced, and the com mission adjourned till Monday night. Denioerntic 'oiiBren.ioiial Conven tion In Maine. Lewiston, Maine, Aug. 4. At the Second Congressional Democratic Con vention after temporary organization, Gov.

There seems to be some body to the report, circulated freely during the last few days, that a combination has been formed which will give the Union Pacific, the Texas Pacific and Atlantic & Pacific a joint line to San I rancisco. It seems that the Texas Pacific will be extended from El Paso northwest through Silver City and Prescott to a connection with the Atlantic & Pacific. The Atlantic & Pacific is controlled by the Nickerson interest in the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe road. From the junction of the Texas Pacific and At lantic & Pacific a joint road will be built northwest to the r aranahajjat valley, where a junction will be made with the Utah Southern, a branch of the Union Pacific. From this point a joint road will be built to San Francisco. The route will begin simultaneously, build ing from San Francisco east, from the end of the Utah Southern west, and from the Texas Pacific, Atlantic & Pa cific northwest. It is proposed to tun nel the Sierra Nevadas and drain the pick of the mining regions. Subscrip tions have been secured for $25,000,000 of bonds for the line, and the route is being surveyed. This is a stupendous prospectus. Whether it is only intend ed for Wall street or not, remains to be developed . Chicago Tima. ""There's a feller up here who gives a ticket for twenty-one meals for three dollars," remarked a disciple of the art preservative of arts last week.

He has now control of some thirty-one mining properties, several of which are yield ing very rich ores. Conquest of Mexico. A gentleman who passed through the city yesterday, and who is just up from El Paso, having traveled across Texas on a business trip, states that there is an organization in that State that in tends to send out a filibustering expedi tion into Mexico. He was very positive in his assertion, but the truth of the re port was lardly credited, till the re ceipt of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat of Tuesday, that contained the follow ing special despatch from San Antonio, Texas: "A quiet rumor reached here to-day that the Grand Army of Occupation that is to capture Mexico is still living and systematically organized, but we are unable to trace it to a reliable source. If the army is organizing the movement is kept very close, but as there are any number of military men in this section of the Slate more than willing to make a move to conquer Mexico, there may be some foundation for the reports." Dr. C. C. Gordon arrived in this city yesterday to make his home with us in the future. He enjoys an excellent rep utation throughout Southern Colorado and leaves behind him a host of friends. In noticing his intended departure thv Trinidad News of yesterday morning said: "Dr. Gordon, having determined to give Las Vegas a trial, his friends got together yesterday afternoon and in a few minutes arranged for the purchase of-n elegant gold watch and chain to be presented the doctor as a token of esteem. Frank Myers managed the details, and so well that the doctor was completely taken by surprise. Frank told him tli at a man was at the drug store who desired to consult him pro fessionally, and taking him in there he found a room full of friends, headed by J. P. Flynn, who, in a neat speech made the presentation. The doctor ex pressed his appreciation of the present in a few words, and it is safe to say he will live a long time before he will for get the real friends he has made in this city." dipt.
