We hope our successors may, at the end of their term of service in the public interest, realize the same sensations of pleasure we now eng joy in flie bearty good wishes for those we have tried to enry Reed. immmBs issue the St. Johns Herald will be published under the auspices of the Apache County Publishing Company. Pat rons and subscribers to the paper are hereby notified that subscrip tions for the ensuing year and ac counts maturing hereafter, are due and payable to the present manage ment at the office of the Herald. The Senate Committee on Pub lic Lands reported a bill on the 8th instant, allowing parties at the Hot Springs to release their prem ises, the new lease to run unti m 'ThT'Governm .TYininfnin n frff hnth hrmso It. is ht.iflrhr.lhA hilTVill nn.ss with vnrv ifaj nv modification. Advices 'from the Sac and Fox agency received on the 8th instant .state that tho cattlemen are getting .ready for their round-up, and laugh when told that the Commissioner of Indian Affairs and agent will ..remove them. There are 5,000 or 6,000 head on the Pottawatomie Reserve, and the drovers say Com- ' missioner Atkins dare not and the agent will not remove them. A cold rain is now visiting the Terri- tor t -A- Washington dispatch of the f 8th instant sac's Representative Halsell, of Kentucky, Chairman of rHhe Committee on Private Land Claims, gives an interesting account of the work before rfis committee. Early in the session it reported bills confirming titles to several large grants in New Mexico and Arizona. These bills were favora bly reported mainly on the recom mendation of surveyors and other officials in the Territories. Subse quently the committee heard what caused them to believe that there had been man'- irregularities in lo cating, surveying and obtaining patents to many of the grants in these territories. They, therefore, decided to let all the bills they had reported rest on the calendar with out calling them up for action. As a next step the committee has pre pared a bill which provides for a Government Commission to judic ially investigate all the disputed land claims in Arizona, New Mex ico and Colorado. The committee will attempt to call up and pass this bill to-morrow. It provides for a commission three members, one of them skilled inSpahish and English, to be appoiuted lay the President and confirmed by the Senate, and an attorney appointed and confirmed in the same way, toy represent the United States in all matters before the commission. The commission is to sit at such .time and :il such places as the Pres- toufcfuture b ident shall direct, and all persons interested in Mexican or Spanish land claims or titles which are in dispute can bring them before the commission for judicial ascertain ment and decision. The bill is one of numerous provisions which cov er every contest which can arise under the class of grants mentioned. In the suit of Lynch Brothers against Grayson & Co., for damages from the loss of cattle from Texas fever imparted br herds Gra3rson & Co. were driving through the terri tory, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the Lynch Brothers for $5,200. This case has attracted much attention among cattlemen? as it is the first in the territory where damages have been sued for from parties driving diseased cat tle over ranges and causing loss among native stock. The case was ably conducted on both sides, the best legal talent in New Mexico having been engaged, and some imported, and that the result was in favor of Lynch Brothers, is a source of great satisfaction to all stock raisers in the territory, being in the nature of a guarantee that the laws are so framed that an equitable settlement can be secured from those who cause the loss of cattle by recklessly driving over our ranges cattle from infected dis tricts. We commend this judgment especially to such of our Texas friends as contemplate an invasion of the territor' this year with fev ered yearlings, and can assure them that in every case where loss is sus tained by the passage of their herds over the ranges the whole power of the courts will be invoked to obtain redress for all losses thej' may cause.

A dispatch from St. Louis of the 9th instant says the deputy guards stationed at the Louisville & Nash ville yards, near Broadway, fired into a crowd of 300 strikers about 2 :50 o'clock this afternoon. Five men and one woman were shot. ThreoLjiien were killed and the womarEjs supposed to be mortally woundea. The killed are Patrick Bristol, employee of the water works, and not a striker; Major Ryehman, shot ' in the head and shoulder, and will probably die; Mrs. John Pfeiffer, shot in the back and probably mortally wounded. An unknown man -was shot at the bridge approach. The crowd made no attack on the yards, as at first reported, but were standing on Ca hokia bridge, near the Louisville & Nashville yards, jeering at the guards, when, without apparent iprovocation, the deputies leveled thelrrme5jand fired two volleys. The crowd immediately separated, running in all directions, and the uTH""f" " " C - I tQward the Missouri river bridge, still holding their rifles and firing to cover their retreat. When it was known b the strikers that the guards had fled the former returned to recover their dead. They found Pat Bristol and Oscar Wortliington lying on the Cahokia bridge, and both were dead when picked, up John Bohman was also found tying on the bridge, but showed signs of life. He was taken to the switch house, but died in a few minutes. Mrs. Pfeiffer was found lying on the railroad about one yard from the Cahokia bridge, and was car ried by her husband to a drug store on Broadway near the cross ing, where she is now in a critical condition. Major Ryehman was taken to a hotel near by, where physicians are now attending him. The crowd, after the firing began, ran up Broadway shouting, 'To arms !" "To arms !" "We will get guns and return that fire." Women and children ran out of houses and met in the street, weeping and wringing their hands. The crowd returned to the scene when the ex citement had abated. Several lead ing strikers drew their revolvers, and swore that they would drive all the deputies out of the city, even at the cost of their own lives. It is ascertained that another man, named T. E. Plompton is among the killed. Great excitement now prevails in East St. Louis, and the strikers are fast arming themselves, and are de termined to avenge to the death those of their number so wantonly slain, as the' say. The local exec utive committee of the Knights of Labor are on the scene attempting to restrain the men and trying to persuade them to meet in Flani gan's hall, where they desire to ad vise against all further violence. The men refuse, however, to meet them, claiming they will be sur rounded' byideputies and fired c strained ay ineir leaders irom ad vancing in a body upon the differ ent railroad yards and' attacking) the deputies on guard. The deputies who did the shoot ing, eight in number, went to the Third district police station and surrendered themselves. They say the crowd began firing on them first, and they simply returned fire. After the first firing was over a number of strikers provided them selves with revolvers and advanced upon the Missouri Pacific railroad yards, where they surprised the de puties on guard and fired on them, kitting one.
