Chicago, Sept. 4. A special from Columbus says: A row of mammoth proportions was developed in the Democratic Stale Committee which bids fair to change the entire plan of conducting tho campaign. It has beii the custom to hold meetings every Thursday, but the onlv mem ber who reported at the last meeting was Mr. Hill of Lima. Tho original plan of campaign in the organization of the committee was divided in the State for work, aud to allow each member control of the funds to con duct his section of tho Scute. Last week the committee got possession of the sum of $20,000, and the chair man thereupon appropriated the same for general purposes and the use of the committee at headquarters. The other members becamo dissatisfied, and refused to have anything further to do with tho campaign. The liquor men are active in this division, and aro endeavoring to foim a faction that will favor their interest, and no expense will be spared by them to gain this mid.

Northern Honora in n State or Terror Murder, Rapine and Itobbcrj More than Thirty Killed vtlthiu T o eckH Ubiquitous Ited Devils Liable to be nu. here. Reports fiom ttic northern fionticr of our sister commonwealth are of the most harrowing and alainiiug character. The entire population is demoralized, many of the braTcst and best have been killed, fields laid waste and homes desolated. Theie is hardly a doubt but that tho savages hive a skirmish line thrown out from San Carlos to the borders ot New Mexico, and well into the State of Clnliualiui, and along the frontier, west to the Santa Cruz river. San Carlos of course is Hie nureary fiuui which the army U icinfoictd, and the de pot from which amunition and arms is procured. Although the hostilcs arc most ly operating on the soil of Sonora, the dis- cardud cartridge shells can be found in abundance in their trail, andarc distinctly marked (J. S. This it suggestive, aud ful ly proves that the arsenals of the United States are furnishing the material with which tko byes of civilized people are taken. The death of Tom Johnson is still in the minds of our rcadets, aud only two dajs ago we ehionicled the brutal killing of four Americans nrai Cananea. Since then the ted fiends have kept up their lick aud scucely a day passes, that victims of their untamed hate arc not made to bite the dust. Informaliou received in this city Monday i3 of a more sanguine character than any for tome time. We are in possession of the facts of a slaughter, about thirty.five miles south of Calabasas, on Thursday last, when an entire family of three generations, consisting ot nine mem bers in all, were ushered to the presence of their creator in a tew minutes. The name of the family was Castillo, and comprised the old grandfather and grandmother, nearly eighty years old, their son and his wife and five chlldreu, of all sizes. The fiends surrounded the house while they were at dinner, stole noiselessly to tho doors and ruthlessly slaughtered them all whilo tuey weie yet sitting around the table partaking of their frugal meal. None were spared, old and joung alike met the same fate. A cousiu of the family, who had always lived with them, ivas tem porarily absent is the fields, and nasie turning to dinner when he beheld the Apache holiday. Being unarmed and powerless, he secieted himself and beheld the sickeuing sight. Uur informant, It. C. Winters, who reached the city jestcrdaj from Santa Cruz, a village in Sonora, about sixteen mile;, fiom the line, states that he heard the survivor lecito the bar rowing tale. Tho red fiends were armed with repeating rifles, and four of then did the execution, not ceasing in their bloody work while a spark ol life remained in any of their victims. When the hellish deed was performed, the fiends raised a shout and cheered themselves. The bodies were pulled out, scalped and mangled, with many symptoms ot glee and lejoicing. The house v. as. then ransacked and every portable article confiscated. The corral was then visited, and two horses and a yearling calf captmed. The latter was killed and a part oi its llcsli packed on horseback. Then another yell was in dulged in, the house and corral fired, and the fiends departed. They numbeicd six teen, and continued their way southwaid, in tho direction of the Magdalcna river As soon as they were well out of sight, the terrified kinsman crept from his place ot concealment, and went to the desolate home. The house being of ndobes, vv ith a mud roof, he found no difficulty in ex tinguishing the flames, bat the corral and sheds were burned to the ground. lie immediately took his de parture on foot to the nearest settlement Santa Cruz, some miles ditlant. Here, when he recited hisdiretul story the great est excitement pic vailed. Neatly all the cilizena of the adjoining settlements had collected, and all the arms that could be procuied were immediately put into the hands of volunteers who suited southward to warn the settlers. They had left the town nearly half a day before Mr. Winters started for this place. '1 lie greatest anxie ty prevailed as there are (.overal isolated ranches south ol the scene cf their former slaughter. There is not ahorse tunning in tne Santa Cruz valley, as the Apaches had carefully run nil nil th it could be seen. Fiom all accounts the hostilcs aic di vided into bands numbering from five to twenty, and are exhibiting; moie audacity than formerly. They openly make their raids in the day time, and apparently never rest as they pursue their vvirrft of blood both day and night. Further, authentic information ic ccived Monday, states that six Mexicans were killed on Saturday, between the Cana nea and Iluachuca mountain, 'there weieeightot themiiding over the praine looking foi some stock, a hen the Apaches who were ambushed, opened file on them. Six were almost instantly killed, and the two others narrowly escaped with their lives, one of them bringing along a bullet in his arm. It behooves people who in tend going below to act with caution Tliera is hurdly a doubt but that the whole northern part of Sonora is oveiruu Willi hostilcs, and that thcii number is daily augmented with Su Carlos renc gides. About midnight on Satuiday last a baud of the blood thirsty devils attack ed the Janiverlcht rancb, neir the head watcis of the Sonoia river. Theie were in the house at the time A. F. Woodward, J. K. Foley, Bill Murray, A. O. Curry, Bob Bush and the two Hohsladt hos. They were all in bed asleep wIicb tne ciasii of bullets came against the doer and w indow s. They rushed to their arms without delay and the night being might moonlight the crouching savages could be seen sur. rounding the house about fitly yards distant. The fire was immediately re- tuined nnd a lively fuslladc kept up un til di light, when the savages sneaked off. So far as could be asccrUi.ed no casualties took place, though the adobe walls of the house arc pretty well marked with bullets, and the surrounding trees ditto. Tho city was thio-n into a fever of excitement Monday morning n consequence of a report that several men were killed between here and Bisbcc, anionic others Ben Wil liams, the well known and popular super intendent of the Copper Queen. It was slid that the report arrived via Charleston, aud that u courier brought the news from the scene of the outrage to that point. As may be expected undersuch circumstances, It caused intense excitement, especially as it was known that Mr. Williams left this place for his home on Sunday evening. Later in the day, however, Col. Moore, II. B. Maxson, Tom Daniels and Arthur Laing arrived, and reported seeing Mr. Williams in Bisbee before they took their departure; alio that there were no Indian visible between here and the capper camp, ill. Maxson went astray when going over to Bisbee, and had to make a night of it on the foot hills. He says he saw a num ber of fires toward the south end of the Mule Mountains, and came to the conclu sion the) were made by some or the depre ciating fiends, as they were makiig their way to Sonoia. . . Openlns of the I'ubllc Schools. The long vacation is ovor, and teachers and children again assemble daily in the adobe buildings on the lower end of Fourth street. Promptly at school hour Monday morning, more than two hundred children directed their steps to tho school house. They seemed refreshed by their long rest, and were healthy and ruddy in appear ance, tastefully and neatly dressed, and scrupulously clean. The children of our public schools arc undoubtedly attrac tive in appearance, and betray a look of general intelligence that cannot be excelled in any like institution on the coast. As is generally known, there are four school rooms, one of which is presided over by Prof. Sherman, the principal. This room is devoted to those most advanced in study, numbering thiitj -two when the EriTArn man dropped in Mcnday. The depart ment next in grade is presided over by Mrs. Stanton, and contained fifty.two pu pils at the opening. The next two rooms are some a hat separated from the others, being in a separate building about twenty five yards distant. These two latter rooms are presided over lespectively by Mrs. Gaston and Miss Santee, the former having fifty-seven children under her charge, and the latter sixty. Thus it will be seen that at the opening there were 201 in attend ance, which is a very flattering gathering. Among these arc several new pupils who had not attended at the former session, Others sent word that ttcy would com. mence in a few days. Piof Scrman in the higher, department w ill continue the Latin and Algehra classes started at the former term a4 in addition w ill commence a class on book keeping and phjsiology. He encourages the children by gentle means, latherthsn coercion and has such things as the young hearts would naturally be attracted to. For instance, the children file iu and out ot the school at the tap of a drum, and the older bovs have orgaaied a band which they will bo permitted to practice cveiy Friday. The trustees visited the school Monday and e.prcssed themselves as much pleased with the attendance and morale of tho children. Prizes were also offered for good conduct and assiduous study. We understand that gratuitious instruction in vocal music, will also be given the children twice a week. The rooms are well ventilated and always kept scrupu lously neat and clean. The rules of order are perfect, and in general, the schools are a credit to the city. A SiisseHllon to the City Council. The hoinble state of our streets is ap p ircnl to eveiy person, aud that an effort should be made by the City Council to have theui properly sprinkled ie also a naked fact. Under the present sj stein the dust is never properly alltyed and it be hooves the gentlemen who composs the Council to make an effort is that direc tion. Wo understand that the Iluachuca Water Company are willing to sprinklcthe streets at a moderate rale, and do it thoroughly. If our understanding is cor rect, the city agreed with the compay, that the laltei should furnish wilcr for all pub lie pui posts upon tho pavment of a stipu lated sum, to be decided by an arbitrator If the two contracting parties could not come to terms. We understand the com pany are willing to water every public thoroughfare in the city thoroughly with hose, or water cart where the hose cannot reach, as the Iluachuca Company furn ish the city w ith water for fire purposes, without cost, it Is nothing more than a square deal to say the least, to give the company the benefit ot whatever patronage the city has to bestow. The city has the benefit of the finest water works in the United States, and if it had to pay $ 10,000 aycar for their use H would be nothing more than a very mederate sum. The city of Council Bluffs pajs a wrier company $23,000 pei year for the use of water for firo purposes, and the svstcmof water works is very much ia feiior to ours. It would be vastly more pleasing to a large majority of the people of this city if the Council would pay a handsome sum for haying the streets suiinkled thoroughly than to give a small sum and not have it done at all, as now. Knliroad nt CalabasaH Special to the EpiT-ru. Contlntiox, Sept. 5 The laying of track on the N. N. and A. A. It. was com. pletcd to Calabasas at noon to-day. The Calabasans are very jubilant and are cele brating the advent ot this additional impe tus to civilization. Regular trains will be J running to Calabasas in a few days. THE SOXOItA KEVOLUITOX. An Outbreak Expected Daily Iany l'oople Fleeing From tho Male. When the news of impending civil dis order was first received from Sonora, many people pooh poohed it, but later develop ments confirm the fact that astrugglc is on the tapis. An intelligent and observing Gentlemen, whose name, for jarious rea sons, we are requested not to use, arrived in this city Tuesday and beiBg taken In hand by an EriTArn man, spoke freely on the impendiog crisis. Our informant it not a man that could be easily led away by mere cnthusicsm or insidious agitation, and he is firmly of the belief that Sonora is on the eve of the most vicious civil strife ever w itnessed in that comiaonw ealth. The feelings engendered are almost cer tain to end in bloodshed, and more than probable in the fall of Carlos Ortiz. The dispute between Torres and Ortez is of recent origin, and may be attributed to the lattcr's animosity to the investment f American capital. This last assertion may be somewhat qualified, as every induce ment is offered for the investment ot for eign capital, though studied persecutions are oi daily occurrence to prevent the en joyment of the usufruct. Under the aus pices of Torres, American capital, in asy considerable quantity, first began to seek Sonora. He promised complete and ade quate protection tooyroad builders, mlno workers, stock raisem, agriculturists, and, in fact, to any species of industry that may come forward with an offer to develop the aurmani resources oi his State, ill was true to his word. During his administration Sonora progressed more rapidly than she ever before dreamed of, and under the fostering care of the Chief Magistrate the railroad was started from Uuaymas and crept along steadily until it has now nearly reached the American frontier. When Ortiz entered tho execu tive office he made specious promises that he would continue the work carved out by his predecessor. Yet, ere his scat was warm, he commenced a series of petty per. secutions that became almost impossible for Americans to submit to. The Gover nor took it into his head to issue passes on the railroad, and scarcely a train passed between Hermosillo and Guaymas tor six months that a dozen or more deadheads were not borne along oa ao executive per mit. Nor wa this the worst. Thepassen gers riding on the Governor's passes took it on themselves to so stop the trains when ever they felt disposed to talk to their friends on the road. This thing became a nuisance. The Dons would invariably sit by the window, and if perchance they shonid see an acquaintance ahead on the roadside the conductor would be immedi ately signalled to stop the train. The Don would then gracefully and without undig nified hasto alight and exchange greetings with his friend, discuss politics and the state of the country for some time, mutu ally admire the railroad, and then, with. many a bow and adios, the traveler weuld rgain enter the coach and inform the con ductor that he could proceed. This thing was almost of daily occurrence, and be came such an enormous nuisance that the management gave orders to the con ductors not to stop between sta tions. A few days after, a mem ber of the city government of Hermosi.lo had occasion to go to Guaymas; and as was customary, rode on the Governor's permit. About thirty miles from Her mosillo he gave orJers to tho conductor to stop the train, in order that he may visit Ihc house of a friend within a hundred yards of the track. The conductor refused and the official became almost wild with rage, and threatened all sorts of things, among others that he would lodge the train man in jail when they reached Guavmas. True to his word, the unfortunate conduc tor was arrested and fiued fifty dollars at Guayma. Then began the general kick. Tho railroad appealed to the General Government and demanded protection. Ortiz kept ou persecuting the company, and insisted on his right to issue passes. Torres then took a hand and denounced the Governor in unmeasured terms. About this lime General Carbo, then commandinc the troops at Hermosillo, got into a scrape and Ortiz st irted to prosecute him. This led to a union between Carbo and Toi res, lliat, as subsequent events proved, was used effectually to crush the Governor. The ex-Governor and the General started for the seat of the Federal Government, where both had much influence, and suc ceeded In persuading the administration that the retirement of Ortiz was necessary to maintain peace iu the State. Under such a state of affairs, the Government promised to aid the revolutionists and there is not a doubt remaining but that Torres and Carbo will be at the head of a revolutionary army in Sonora ere many days. The struggle will be no pic nic either, as Ortez had been advised of the intention of the federal government, and has been making active preparations for a fight-for some time back. He issued a proclamation about two weeks ago, call ing upon all the able-bodied men in the State to enroll themselves in the national guard and resist the aggressions of the re volutionists. Since then he has threatened to levy a foiciblo draft to recruit the militia force, unless the able-bodied citi zens come forward voluntary and join the ranks. Under this threat nearly all the young men ia the northern part of the btatc arc flooding into Arizona. Not loss than a hundred Mexicans have arrived at Bisbee from the Sonora valley towns wiih in two wteks, all intent" on evadinjfthe draft, though from the preparations being made, it is evident that they won't be idle while the contest is going on. A great number have come to this city, provided themselves with arms and ammunition and returned quietly to their homes. In conversation, some of them expressed the intention of cair, ing on a guerilla waif-re on their own hook when the trouble ex plodes, and it is more than probable, that the people in- the northern portion of the State will keep neutral and prey on both. There has been more arms sold in this city dunng the past few days, than at any period in the history of the camp. P. W. Smith & Co.'s stoie was almost completely cleaned out of guns last Monday, and the othei shops are also doing a thriving busi. ncs. Our informant is of opinion that the railroad is backing Torres and Carbo and that the influence of that corporation had much to do with determining the Fed. eral Government to take a hand. The ar rival of Torres is daily expected, and it is known that he has an escort of 000 Federal soldiers. General Uc.es is cimpcd with his entire command about 100 miles cast of Hermosillo, aud, notwithstanding the Apache atrocities on the frontier, he has not moved to punish them. This is signi ficant, when it is remembered that he took his command oil the trail, and marched within easy di.tancc of Hermoello after having a consultation with as aid de-camp fresh lioin General Uaibo. Ortiz is certain that he can maintain his position by force of arms until the expiration of his term, while the Fedcialtioops and revolutionists assert that they can drive him out of the State in less than a month. In any event, a sanguinary time may be expected that bodea no good to the foreign capital in vested in tho State. A nice body of ore was aiscovercd al most on tho surface of the ground en the Grand Central a few days ago by some men who were excavating for a water pipe.
