IS LABOR PROIKCTED?
Labor Enquirer, Chicago.
When considering the tariff question .
let the workingman remember that he
is a consumer as well as a producer;
and that he is compelled, under the
competitive wage system, to sell his
labor in a free market, in competition
with every other laborer, while he must
buy his own products in a market where
prices are enhanced, to the benefit of
the capitalist, by an average tax of 47
per cent. Keep these truths always in
mind, and you will be enabled to arrive
at a correct answer to the query: Does
protection benefit or damage the Amer
ican laborer?

REMOVING SHERIDAN.
The fact that Gen. Sheridan has got
the better of the attack which so nearly
ended his life, and yet has not seemed to
have grown in strength in a way to
warrant hope for his immediate, recov
ery, has naturally excited the liveliest
apprehension in the minds of his
friends. 77.7

where he may ' have the benefit of the

THE MINNESOTA FEELING.
A Chicago contemporary calls attention
to the fact that, though in Minnesota
there exists a well-defined hostility to
the continuance" of a high tariff, the
opinions of this state, with the other so
called "granger" states, were entirely
ignored in the convention which adopted
the high-tariff-heavy-tax platform.
For the information of our contem
porary we may say that Minnesota has
taken note of that fact. She has made
her demand,, based upon the broad
ground of common justice,, and she has
met with a flat refusal. She is not
likely to forget that fact soon. Minne
sotians, without distinction of party, are
terribly in earnest in their demand for
a reduction of tariff taxation.
• For a long time they suffered and en
dured in silence, thinking there was a
necessity for such endurance, but they
have been enlightened and aroused at
last. They know they ask only what
in common fairness should be granted
them, and they are not going to submit
tamely to continued arrogant refusal
from the money kings and monopolists
who control the Republican party and
have the power of dictation.
The feeling is growing every day, and
when the ballots are counted next
November our contemporary will have
a practical and satisfactory demonstra
tion of its intensity.

AFTER-CONVENTION TALK.
It is fortunate for Indianapolis that
the Republican convention was not held
there. The crowd would have been un
manageable. Chicago is the best hotel
town in the world; and yet, with all its
hotel accommodations, the city was
taxed beyond its capacity. Nobody
knows what business so many people
had there, but they were there, and had
to be taken care of.
* *
*
To a stranger visiting the convention
hall, it would have been difficult to tell -
whether the delegates or the people in
the galleries were running the conven
tion. The galleries voted on every propo
sition on which a viva voce vote was
taken, and they were never backward in
making suggestions to the chair respec
ting parliamentary decisions.
* *
*■
Chairman Estee was not a big
enough man to hold the convention
down. He is a plain, methodical man,
whoVished to conduct the business of
the convention on business principles.
That doesn't suit a political gathering
where the . whoop-up-Eliza-Jane-style
of proceedings is popular. Of the
various vice presidents who at. different
times attempted to relieve Estee of his
laborious duties, Warxer Miller was
the only one who possessed the force
and dignity to keep the mob in subjec
tion.
* *
McKixlet, of Ohio, and Wise, of
Virginia, made the best impression on
the convention of any two men in it.
McKinley's Daniel Webster face
was a great help to him, while Wise's
courteous deportment and gentlemanly
bearing were so much in contrast with
Mahone's bushwhacking methods that
he became quite a favorite. Mahone
has a sheep-killing look on his face, and
is a poor talker at best. Wise has a
full round face, an open countenance
and a glib tongue.
* *
*
The two men who lost caste most
rapidly were Fouaker and Ingehsoll.
At the opening of the convention For
akeu was the popular favorite. His
entrance into the hall was always the
occasion of an outburst of applause, and
his name was on everybody's tongue.
But after he stood on the platform and
openly attempted to betray John SHER
man by posing himself as a presidential
candidate, the audience looked upon
him with disgust. He couldn't have
got a nomination for dog-pelter after
that.
* *
The mistakes of Moses were, nothing
in comparison with the mistake Bob
Ingersoll made when he attempted to
forestall the other candidates by spring
ing Gresham at an inopportune hour.
Any ten-year-old boy would have had
more discretion than Ingersoll dis
played on this occasion. How the
bald and big-headed old pagan
must have felt humiliated when he
was forced to shut off his oratorical
gas and retire from the platform amid
the jeers and hisses of the hooting
thousands! It was the first time Bob
ever got it in the neck, but he got it
hard enough this time to last him the
balance of his life. Patsy Cardiff is
the only person who can sympathize
with him properly.
* *
Tlie only time that the galleries were
silent was when Harrison was nomi
nated. If an iceberg from Alaska had
been dropped in on the convention it
would not have had a more chilling
effect than the announcement of Hakiu
bon's nomination did. The silence and
sullenness of the great audience dis
couraged the bosses. It was the final
evidence of the great mistake they had
made in forcing the nomination of a
corporation candidate on the party, but
it was evidence enough to convince
them of the magnitude of the mistake.
These are times when artificial enthusi
asm does not count. It must spring
from the heart to be ot avail.
. » *
The Minnesota delegation didn't cut
much of a figure at Chicago. They were
a clever set of fellows who can make a
good showing at a ward primary, but
when it came to measuring up with the
big guns from other states the boys
themselves were conscious of their own
insignificance, and consequently kept in
the background. They knew they
suffered in' comparison with other state
delegations, and it is to their credit that
they didn't attempt to push themselves
forward. An eminent New York politi
cian walked into the Minnesota head
quarters one day and took a quiet sur
vey of the delegation. When ne came
out he was asked his opinion of the
Minnesotians. There. are more good
clothes with less in them in there than
any place I have struck in Chicago,"
was the reply. The boys were well
dressed. 7.'.

The bloody shirt racketfailed to touch
a responsive chord in the popular heart.
When Foraker was making his presi
dential pose his friends brought in an
immense lloral . arch with Foraker's
celebrated dispatch to Cleveland in
scribed on it: "No rebel flags surren
dered while lam governor." Immedi
ately there came from the gallery cries
of "Rats,". "Chestnuts, "Give us some
. thing new." After that the speakers
■ wore exceedingly cautious about un

Forakeh, he never bobbed up again. v

Jay Gould was not in the convention,
but his hired men were there in
such numbers as to make his r presence
unnecessary. Estee, the chairman, was
defeated as a candidate for governor of
California on the ground that he was
Huntington's railroad attorney. El
kins, the general manager of the con
vention, is Gould's right bower; while
Depew, who led over the New York del
egation to Harrison, is the head of the
Vanderbilt system. The railroad cor
porations, the iron masters and the coal
barons pooled issues and swept the
deck. The convention was theirs, the
ticket is theirs, and the platform is
theirs.

George B. Edgerton, of Kasson,
and William J. Freaney, of St. Paul,
were the two most popular members of
the Minnesota delegation. - They looked
after the visiting Minnesotians, and en
deavored to make things comfortable
for the visitors. ■ * . "

Poor Gresham, the only candidate
who represented the interests of the
farmers and the working, classes, was
ruthlessly crushed beneath the iron heel
of monopoly. He had no more show
for a nomination in that convention
than Bob Ingersoll has for heaven.
HOPE FOR BETTER THINGS.
Railway Managers Expect a Revision
of lowa's Freight Tariff.
AN OLD FIGHT SETTLED
The Northern Pacific Will Close the
Tear With a Handsome
Profit.
Chicago, June 27.— The general man
agers of the Western arid Northwestern
lines met in Chairman Faithorn's office
to-day and discussed the rate situation.
In regard to the lowa tariff to be put
into force July 5, it was deemed advisa
ble to defer action until the result of
the conference now in progress between
the presidents of the roads and the lowa
commissioners is known. It was agreed
also that nothing could be done in the
matter of establishing permanent rates
between Chicago and St. Paul until it is
finally settled what rates are to become
effective in lowa. From this it will be
seen that the managers have not entirely
given up hope of obtaining further con
cessions from the commissioners. An
other meeting will be held Saturday.
WILL. FIGHT NO LONGER.
Colorado Business, a Bone of
Contention, Now Governed by
Fixed Kates.
New York, June 27.— For a long
time Colorado freight business has been
a bone of contention among the all rail
lines and lines via steamer to New Or
leans, anil thence by rail. The old rate
was on a basis of first-class freights,
$3.47 per 100 pounds, but very great in
roads were made .on this tariff in the
efforts of the various lines to procure
the bulk ot the trade until $2.20 was
reached, and it, is believed even this
was considerably beaten. The old rate
was considered too high at the. best, and
this was a sufficient reason for cutting
it. The matter was brought to a termi
nation on Monday, however, as all the
lines have settled upon a fixed rate of
¥2.24, and signed an agreement to that
effect, which will in future necessarily
govern all agents in their efforts to pro
cure Colorado business.
The Northern Pacific.
It is given out indirectly that the
Northern Pacific company will close its
fiscal year with a surplus of $500,000 . in
excess of fixed charges and all other
expenses. The year will, it is said, be
the banner one in its history. In addi
tion to the fifty locomotives that have
been ordered the directors contemplate
another thousand freight cars besides
those now under contract for building.

Officials of the Pennsylvania Sys
tem Have Their Duties En
larged.
Philadelphia, June 27. — Frank
Thompson was to-day elected first vice
president of the Pennsylvania Railroad
company at a meeting of the the board
of directors. His duties will be consid
erably enlarged, and he will at the same
time continue at the head of the trans
portation department and the passenger
and freight departments, which have
been under his charge since 1882, when
he succeeded A. J. Cassatt. Joseph N.
Dv Bary was elected second vice presi
dent and John P. Green that third vice
president. These gentlemen, beside
continuing in their present lines of duty,
will have supervision,, he former over
the treasury department and the latter
over the accounting department.
Railroad Extension.
The Northern Pacific has just given
notice that the Missoula & Bitter Root
Valley road has been extended to
Grantsdale, 15 miles south of Victor,'
the present terminus. The extension
will, until further notice, be operated
by the construction department. The
following are the stations and distance
from Victor: McMillan's Spur 7.9
miles. Grantsdale 15.0 miles. No agent
has been appointed at McMillan's Spur
and freight must be prepaid. Until
further notice, shipments to and from
points between Victor, and Grantsdale
will take local rates between Victor and
point of shipment or destination.
Linmbermen Will Protest.
Special to the Globe.
-Eau Claire, Wis., Jnne 27.— At a
meeting of lumbermen this evening it
was resolved to make a strong protest
in writing at Chicago, on the 30th inst.,
before Chairman Midgley against the
proposed restoration of the obnoxious
differential rate on lumber from Chip
pewa valley points to the southwest, re
duced several months ago by the Chi
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway
which maintains that it is justified in
the reduction by water competition via
Chippewa river. The Northwestern
line demands the restoration of the old
differential.
More White Bear Trains.
Commencing next Sunday the St.
Paul & Duluth will put ou an addition
al train from White Bear to St. Paul,
leaving the lake daily, except Satur
days, at 10:45 p. m. On Saturdays the
train will leave the lake for St. Paul at

Paul to the lake will also be put on,
leaving St. Paul at 11:40 p. m. daily, ex
cept Saturdays. On Saturday nights
the train will be held until la.m.

Washington, June 27.— United
States steamer Swatara arrived the
Washington navy yard at noon to-day"
from Norfolk, for the purpose ot taking
Gen. Sheridan to. Nonquitt, Mass.
Gen. Sheridan will be accompanied by
Mrs. Sheridan, Col. Sheridan. Drs.
O'Reilly and Yarrow, and a trained
nurse. Every arrangement has been
made for the care and comfort of the
distinguished patient, and it is expected
that he will derive great benefit from
the trip. One of the general's friends,
in speaking of the proposed trip, this
morning, said: The general is a good
sailor and was never sea-sick in his life.
He has taken several trips in the United
States steamer Galena, and has become
quite attached to that vessel and its
officers. He wanted to have her
for this trip, but she was out at
sea and could not be secured in time.
The Swatara is a vessel of the same
type and class and as she has just been
fitted out for a cruise, is in excelleut
condition. Her captain, Commander
McGowan is an accomplished officer
and is a personal friend of the general's.
The trip -to Nonquitt will probably be
made in three days and with few, if any
stops, after leaving the navy yard. It
may be necessary to stop at Fortress
Monroe for milk, but I doubt it. 1 pre
dict that the general will pick up rapidly
from the time he begins to sniff the in
vigorating sea air at the mouth of the
river. The naval people have every
convenience for transporting invalids,
and will adopt the same measures with
Gen. Sheridan that they would employ
in the case of an officer with a broken
leg. Col. Kellogg, of Gen. Sheridan's
staff, will meet the party on their arrival
at Nonquitt. He will take the Boston
train for that place to-morrow and com
plete the arrangements for the general's
reception. Col. Kellogg will take the
general's four children with him and
also Mrs. Kellogg and his own family.
At 9 o'clock p. m. the following bulle
tin was issued: "Gen. Sheridan has re
mained in about the same state for the
last twenty-four hours. Nothing thus
far has occurred to cause any change in
the plan already adopted for his re
moval to Nonquitt. If everything is
favorable he will take advantage of the
courtesy of the honorable secretary of
the navy to sail from Washington on the
U. S. S. Swatara about noon to-mor
row." ______

John Y. Hooper, of Belle Plaine.
Judge MacDonaid expressed himself
as greatly gratified with the public lands
bill, the passage of which to-day is the
finale of a season of seven months' hard
work in committee. Every paragraph
of the bill which affects the people of
the Northwest bears an impress of the
tireless vigilance of MacDonaid. He, as
a member of the committee, was largely
instrumental in the formation of . the
bill, and Chairman Holman to-day said:
"I sought the advice of the Minnesota
member and deferred in a great meas
ure to his judgment. Whenever 1
differed with him the judge hammered
at me with a regiment drawn from his
actual experience, and usually whipped
me over to his way of thinking. He has
been one of our steadiest and best
workers."

No Cause for Apprehension.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 27.— Judge Wil
son says: "As soon as I heard that the
senate committee had made an adverse
report on the bill for a bridge at Waba- ■
sha 1 saw Senator Vest, who said that
certain clauses were objectionable to
him and he reported adversely in order
to get the bill off his hands in the rush
of business. He is willing to amend the
bill, and, in connection with senator
Davis, I believe that the matter will be
attended to at an early date, so you may
send word to the Globe that there is
no present cause for apprehension in
the matter."

THE "OLD^ FIRST."
Minnesota's First Regiment
of Volunteers in Its An
nual Reunion.
A Guest of George A. Brackett
at Orono Point, at Min
netonka.
Talks and Reminiscences— At
the Banquet— CroffutV
Heard From.
Testimonial to Brackett—This
Year's Officers Those
Who Attended.
The twenty-first annual reunion of
the old First regiment of Minnesota
volunteers, which was celebrated at
Lake Minnetonka by the veterans and
their friends, as the guests of George. A.
Brackett, yesterday, was a most pleas
ant affair and was attended by some 400
people. The special train which carried
the party to the lake was made up of
seven coaches, and left the union depot
at 9:25 with every coach full. Arriving
at Wayzata the party boarded the
steamer City of St. Louis, furnished by
Gen. W. D. Washburn, and were taken
to Mr. Brackett's place at Orono Point.
The trip on the boat was a very pleas
ant one, despite the chilly weather.
The Plummer post drum corps fur
nished music and there was some good
singing. Mrs. Charles Ames, (nee
Jessiejßryant), "the daughter of the regi
ment," was present with her charming
little baby and her husband, and re
ceived a good deal of attention from
the old veterans. Gus. Plumnier and
Ed A. Stevens officiated as the badge
committee and supplied every one on
the boat with handsome silk badges.
Each of the veterans wore a small silver
clover leaf, the Second corps badge,
suitably inscribed, on his breast.
THE BUSINESS MEETING.
. Reaching Orono Point, the residence
of George A. Brackett, the party left
the boat, and the veterans went at once
to a large tent which had been erected
a short distance from the house, where
the business session was held. Just be
fore the meeting was called to order a
photographer took a picture of the as
sembly. President Judge Lochren
called the meeting to order at noon with
a few chosen words.in which he thanked
Mr. Brackett, on behalf of the associa
tion.* The report of the treasurer of the
organization showed that there was now
cash on hand amounting to 52GG.47. The
secretary read letters from various per
sons who had been invited to attend the
meeting, but who had found it impos
sible to be present. . The following self
explanatory letter was read from
Charles Carlton Coffin, the well-known
writer, who is now engaged in a his
tory of the war, in which the position of
the First regiment of Bull Run will be
defined: "I regret that I cannot be
present, as it would be especially en
joyable because it was my privilege to
make the acquaintance of the officers of
your regiment early in the war. and be
cause of the part it performed on the
field of Gettysburg. Possibly there
are other regiments just as brave,
but a Providence which orders
human affairs so brought about
events that on the evening of the 2d of
July, ISG3, you were able to render im
mortal service to your country. His
torians have generally regarded the re
pulse of Pickett as the turning point—
the high water mark of the Rebellion;
but a careful study of the battle, espe
cially of the Confederate side, has
brought me to a different conclusion;
that the decisive moment was when the
First' Minnesota went down the slope of
the ridge, and, by a terrible sacrifice of
life— standing there like a wall of ada
mant—rolled back Longstreet's troops
on their last assault, holding the ground
till the troops of the Sixth and Twelfth
corps arrived. In a volume entitled
Marching to Victory, soon to be pub
lished. I have endeavored to set forth
the service rendered by the First Min
nesota, and have regarded the repulse
of Pickett as the beginning of the ebb
tide of the Rebellion. The charge of
Pickett could have but one ending. It
was a foregone conclusion that it would
result in disaster to him. Not so the
attack of Longstreet the second day.
He hurled his brigades forward with
the utmost impetuosity, intending to
sweep all before him. He threw in every
regiment of his command, and had no
troops in reserve. He wielded his heav
iest blow at sundown the evening of the
second day. His last aggressive stroke
fell on the First Minnesota, and when
his line came to a standstill under your
bullets, to my mind it was the high tide
of the Rebellion— great turning point
,in human affairs.
A letter was read from W. A. Crof
fnt. the well-known newspaper man,
and was received with applause.
FIGHTING OT/n BATTLES.
Ex-Gov. Ramsey, in proposing that a
vote of thanks be tendered W. A. Crof
fut. for his highly interesting letter, was
treated with three rousing cheers and
and then called on for a speech. He
made a very humorous address, in
which he paid a high compliment to the
bravery of the old First regiment. He
referred in a jocular way to the red
shirts which the men wore when they
started out. During the governor's ad
dress he was frequently interrupted by
applause, which stopped the speaker, for
the time, being. Gov. Ramsey gave a
detailed history of the regiment and
cracked many a joke at the expense of
the members.
A HANDSOME TESTIMONIAL.
George A Brackett was here called in
and presented with a set of resolutions.
These resolutions of thanks are printed
upon white satin and handsomely
mounted with a plush mat of Nile
green, and a bronze frame. The reso
lutions read that thanks are returned,
not only because of the present snlendid
entertainment, but because of his close
relations to the organization in the dark
est days of its history and the continued
love and friendship he has extended to
each and all of us since the. war."
Signed: R. A. Plummer, Ed A. Stev
ens. F. J. Meade. Appreciated the
compliment. He thanked the "boys"
most heartily, and in closing said he
was always glad to be of service to the
organization as a body or the individual
member.- „7 7 "77

TOOTING ONE'S OWN HORN
President Cleveland Says He Does Not
Enjoy That Sort of Business.
HIS TALK TO VIRGINIANS.
Commencement Exercises of the Uni
versity of Virginia at Which the
President Confers the Degrees.
Charlottesville, Va., June 27.—
This was the final day of the commence
ment exercises of the University of Vir
ginia. Diplomas were delivered, de
grees conferred and the usual exercises
of closing day gone through with. At
11:20 o'clock a special train arrived with
President Cleveland, Secretaries Bayard
and Vilas, Senator-elect Barbour and
Congressman O'Ferrall. They were
escorted to the public hall through the
crowds that lined the streets. President
Cleveland conferred the degree of
master of arts andjdoctor of phil
ology and science upon the graduates.
At the conclusion of the ceremonies he
held an informal reception and shook
hands with 2,000 or 3,000 people. Later
in the day the president and party were
the guests of the alumni at a luncheon
held in the library and at which 200
people sat down. The president re
sponded to the toast: "The President of
the United States." He said: "I first
have to thank you for electing me a
member of your society. I hope your
calling for me so soon after I have be
come one of you is not intended as a
foretaste of what you intend to do with
me. Your orator said to-day that a

; - NOT THAT SORT OP A MAN.
A noted Virginian, not Thomas Jeffer
son, said to me yesterday, that the best
thing to do in a predicament, such as I
find myself in to-day, was to excuse
yourself and sit down. The latter part
of the advice is easy to take, but the
first is not. The first part is something
like playing the fiddle; it looks easy but
it is not. I have no excuse and cannot
plead ill-health nor a previous engage
ment. Still, I am ashamed that I have
nothing to say. 1 bethought myself that
your institution is the work of a man
who in his young da*, s established a
government which he afterwards man
aged, and in the maturity of his powers
laid the foundation of this great seat of
learning. It was his purpose at the be
ginning to place
POLITICS AMONG THE STUDIES .
which he thought should be pursued
here. I suppose the politics that he
referred to were very different from the
politics to which we are accustomed to
day. 1 wonder how much attention is
paid to politics here by the students and
alumni. We hear a great deal about the
student in politics. As to whether it is
a good or a bad thing depends much on
the student. 1 should say that if he
were a student of politics it would be a
very good thing. Every small boy in
the country expects to be president. An
experience of a little more than three
years does not make me feel very
kindly towards ofliceseekers. Still
the ambition is a laudable one.
I should hope that every student
would want to be president, and desir
ing to encourage the aspiration 1 ought
not to say much on the subject. . I don't
want to dampen their ardor by telling
too much about it. While the perplex
ities of the office are great, they are the
perplexities of the highest place in the
United States, and in its occupant is re
posed the confidence of the greatest
people on earth."
Secretary Bayard responded to the
toast, "The Jurisdiction of the United
States," Secretary Vilas to "The Cab
inet," Gov. Lee to "The Governor of
Virginia, and Senator Voorhees to "The
Congress of the United States." After
luncheon the presidential party visited
Monticello and the grave of Jefferson,
and at 8 o'clock left on a special train
for Washington, reaching the capital at
ij-idnight. ; : 7

story of his crime with the utmost sang
froid and as if it was an every-day oc

streets knots of men were gathered,
with him as the theme of conversation.
It was easy to see that a storm was
brewing and that

was to be yisited on the man. After
dark matters came more to, a focus,
and about midnight a body of men num
bering a hundred or more gathered
around the water tank, and under the
lead of a captain proceeded to the vicin
ity of the jail and demanded admittance
of the sheriff. This he refused, and de
clared his intention to protect his
prisoner at .all hazards. The citi
zens seemed loth - to make
any assault on the sheriff, but were
none the less determined to have their
man. Two men were again sent to de
mand the keys.but the sheriff was gone.
A number of the assailants started in
hot pursuit while others went for rail
road iron to batter in the doors. The
sheriff, however, was soon overhauled,
but another delay occurred. He had
thrown the keys away. After a short
delay they were founds, the doors un
locked and the culprit brought out. He
was taken directly to the place where
the murder was committed and given
all the time he desired for
PRAYER AND CONFESSION.
ne entirely exonerated Oscar John
son from complicity in the murder and
said the sheriff of Las Animas county,
Colorado, helped him to make up the
story. He then made his last prayer,
and at about the hour he killed the boy
—1:30 a. m. — hung a lifeless corpse from
the cross piece of a telegraph pole.
Mitchell's crime was the murder of a
little boy twelve years old and the at
tempted murder of his father for money
and the endeavor to implicate another
man in the hideous crime. The verdict
of the people sustains the lynching.
THE COUNTRY IS COLD,
But the Blood of Alaskan Indians
is Hut Enough to Engender a
Fight.
Seattle, W. T., June 27.— steam
schooner Leo arrived yesterday from
Alaska. Among her passengers were
twenty-two miners and prospectors who
report a fatal conflict between two
tribes of Alaska .Indians, the Chilcats
and Sitkas. The former hold a
monopoly for freighting for miners
from the coast to the mines and refuse
to allow the other Indians to engage in
business, and sometimes interfere with
white men who attempt to carry their
own baggage. They charge exorbitant
prices and make over $7 a day;
Two weeks ago a large party of pros
pec tors started up the Yukon with a
tribe of Sitka Indians under Chief
George as freighters. A conflict re
sulted, in which the chief of the Chil
cats was killed. The Indians demaded
life for life and chased the Sitkas into
Haines, a white settlement. Tho
whites protected the life of Chief
George during the day, but at night ho
, was murdered by the stealthy Chilcats.
Fearing a massacre, the whites sent to
the coast for help, which arrived just in
time in the shape of a man-of-war. The
prospectors say the Chilcats are very
insolent, and are being urged to more
violence by the widow of the murdered
chief. They also say that a white man
has slim protection from the avaricious
and murderous redskins.
THE SHADOW OP DEATH. -
Pally 1,500 Persons Perished in
the Mexican Flood.
El Paso, Tex., June 27.— general
passenger agent of the Mexican Central
railroad received a telegram here yes
terday from the Mexican Central agent
at Silao, saying that in two days the
track would be so that passengers could
be taken through the flooded area with
one transfer. Steps are being taken for
the relief of the sufferers by the terrible
overflows along the line of the Mexican
Central. It seems that at least 1,500
people were drowned in Leon alone.
Over 1,000 bodies have already been re
covered. In some districts the drifting
water is full of dead bodies, floating as
thick as drift wood, and the stench per
vading the country is frightful. Meas
ures are being taKen all over Mexico to
raise funds for the sufferers.
MURDEROUS APACHES.
They Are Making Life Miserable
for Mexican Herders.
Nogales, Ariz., June 27.— Much ex
citement has been created by two out
rages recently committed by a small
band of Apache Indians in the Ariope
district, Sonora, Mexico. A band at
tacked two herders, shot one and strung
the other up to a tree, leaving him to
die. He was afterwards cut down by
friends, and his life saved. Two days
later the Indians came upon two Mex
icans in a wagon. One was shot, but
the other escaped. The marauders
then left for the hills, leaving one of
their number drunk and asleep in the
brush. A party of Mexican custom oft
ficers found the sleeping Indian latei
and cut his throat. 7v "7.
