Bloody Work of Hostile Apaches Across the Border. Los VEGAS, N. M., August Meagre news reached this city at a very late hour last night that the Apaches have swooped down oh a small Mexican village, eighteen miles from Bion Purco, a point on the At- lantic Pacific railroad, and mur- ..dered twenty-seven out of twenty- nine inhabitants. The two Mexicans who made good their escape were nearly exhausted when they reached the railroad, and had their horses shot from under them before getting out of reach of the Indians. From the scanty news obtainable on account of a break in telegraphic communicatio.i, it ap- pears that Apaches completely surrounded the village, thus making escape for the doomed inhabitants impossible. The track of the Indians through the wilderness is continually marked with murder and bloodshed, and the justly .indignant citizens, of this section of the country demand that the government put a large force of troops in the field immediately and wipe entirely out of existence the red devils who are committing such terri- ble slaughter and atrocities among the whites and Mexicans. SANTA FE, August Charles S. Gough came to'this town yesterday afternoon with a report that he was attacked by seven Apache Indians, sixteen miles.from here on the road to Wallace, and that he killed one imd wounded three others, escaping un- hurt but with his hat full of holes; The sheriff and a posse of men have gone out to the scene of the fight. i 1.11 Pasting Counterfeit Money.

Lawson was one of the most prominent colored men in the state, a member of the colored Masons, Odd Fellows and Knights Templar. He had been janitor at the court room for five years.

WASHINGTON, August p. m dangerous symptoms of this afternoon have subsided. The presi dent is sleeping. The pulse is much less frequent and all: indications are better.. I have just left the white house and this is reliable. W. W. DUDLEY. WASHINGTON, August 15. The midday bulletin was not issued unti 1 o'clock. Pulse then, 118; tempera- ture, 99; respiration, 19. Tne bulletin says: "Since, the .last bulletin the president has not vomited again, anc he is now able to retain nourishmen in the stomach. At the morning dressing there was a free discharge o: pus, and the wound is in good condi- tion." Tne president's temperature has fal- len since morning and the midday bulletin appears alarming. The sur- geons say it is not .so; they attribute the higher pulse to exhaustion caused by vomiting and look upon the reduc- tion in temperature as favorable. There is great uneasiness..outside of the white phouse, and the surgeons don't say evident" they do not feel as confident as formerly, but they feel more hopeful now than last night or'this morning: Morphine was again, administered to the presi- dent last night before he could sleep, and while he had not recovered from ;he last operation as the surgeons hoped, they .still insist that he will rally; and believe'he will Executive Mansion, p. The president's condition remains tbout the same as when reported at p'.m., excepting.perhaps, a slight rise in temperature by the usual after- noon fever. The febrile rise, how- ever, is said to be no greater than heretofore. The patient has been nauseated once since the last bulletin fas- sent. The surgeons refer to the ast'official bulletin as about eover- ng the case up to this hour with the exception of the return of the nausea ibove mentioned, and show no dispo- sition to talk further on the subject. The "evening bulletin is anxiously waited for by the public. At the ex- ecutive mansion there is a perceptible eeling of anxiety about the patient, >ut no actual alarm exists, but, on he contrary, the present unfavorable ymptoms are considered but tem- iorary, and it is thought they will soon pass away. Executive mansion, p. rritability of the president's stomach eturned during the evening and he has vomited three times since one >'clock. Although the afternoon rise >f temperature is less than it has been or several.days, the pulse and respir- ation are more frequent, so that his ondition on the whole is less satis- aetory. His pulse is now 130, tem- perature 99.6, respiration 22. Drs. Bliss, Barnes, Woodward, Rey- jurn and Agnew still keep close. to he president, and avoid giving any >pinions outside, but there is no'con- ealing the fact that the president is .ecidedly worse, and that he is in much danger. The general feeling "iere is one of great despondency. !rowds are pressing to the white icuse for the latest news, and the octois connected with the case have >ut little hope. Dr. Garnett and emi- lent surgeons fear the worst result. lopes ar- still felt that the president may get better to-night. Executive Mansion, p. it this hour ttie information obtained rom the attending surgeons is to the fleet that while indications are that be president's wound is doing very well, and is apparently not the cause f present trouble. ,The fact can- .ot be concealed that the patient is xtremely weak, and that his disabili- y is such aa to causi anxiety. It has een determined not to disturb his tomach by permitting him to eat for le present and nourishment is being administered by means of injection The surgeons explain the difficult! by the assertion that the president1; stomach has failed so respom as it should. Hence the determina tion to inject nourishment. There i a decided feeling of anxiety among the members of the cabinet and at tending surgeons, and at this writing the situation is at least grave. Noth ing has been heard from the sick room during the lost hour, and the cahjne officers are now in waiting to hear th latest news. Attorney-General MacVeagh said in response to a question, "We havi heard nothing since the bulletin was issued. Of course we are very anxious. We expect to hear some thing very sooni'? The following cablegram was sen at this evening: Lowell, atlnlster London: The president's condition is less sat- factory. Irritability of the stomach re turned. He vomited three times since one o'clock. Temperature 99.6 (less than for several pulse res- piration 22. [Signed] HITT, Acting Secretary. The following was sent a few min- utes pasts o'clock: R. B. Hayes, Fremont, Ohio. Have reached another very serious point in the case. The condition ai this hour (8 p. m.) are of a character that causes great anxiety. We hope for better things in the morning. [gigued] H. C. COKBIN. 9 p. president experienced no trouble from nausea since 5 p. m. A hypodermic injection of morphia was administered a short time ago and at this hour he is sleeping. p. gentleman who jusl came from the private part of the mansion says Mrs. Garfleld informed him that the president was still sleeping quietly. p. Secretary- Brown, who just came from the sur- geon's room, says the president is still sleeping. He ajso said the sleep was natural and that no morphia, had been administered to-day. The state- ment heretofore made to that effect is erroneous. The patient's, pulse has decreased ten beats, being at present about 120. No further trouble from nausea has been experienced. The surgeons estimate his temperature at this hour to be about nominal. In- dications are that the pulse is still subsiding. There has been the greatest excite- ment here to-day about the president since the day he was shot. Business was almost entirely suspended and people were running everywhere hunting for the latest news. The white was rilled up and throngs pressed about the gates. The excite- ment was started with the forenoon bulletin, which was considered unfa- vorable. The midday .'bulletin, in- stead of reassuring the people, in- creased the uneasiness, and the night bulletin made matters still worse. Everybody wanted to find out what the surgeons thought of the ease and what hopes they had, but this was rather difficult, as the sur- geons kept themselves out of sight. This added to ;he alarm and at. night the whole population was on the streets, going :o their homes and the white house. The surgeons remained close by the president, and the offices at the white louse were thronged; but little could se learned that could be called defi- nite. Those who had access to the xooms hear the president and to the loctors would' say. but little. Col. Corbin said that the situation was sritical. Attorney General Mac- Veagh told Senator Pugh, of Alabama, to-night-that it was useless to disguise .he fact that the ease was as grave as could' be. Ex-sheriff Doggett, of Brooklyn, who has access to the personal attendants of he president, said it was as bad as >ad could be. All this seemed to in- crease the feeling of alarm, but gave no satisfaction as to the state of the case. It was plain all day that the surgeons were alarmed. There was no "concealing that fact. Various were afloat, and could be icard at every turn. To-night about 9 o'clock a Western Associated press agent got to see Dr. Jliss. He said he was in a hurry to ;et back to the president, but would :ake time to say that this was a most critical turn of the president's mal- ady. He said it was a complication hat was not looked for last night. He said: "The president's stomach went back on him, and entirely re- used to perform any of its functions. The surgeons atjence became alarmed, as they saw it was a critical .change. ?he wound was doing all right. There was no trouble from that as yet. It s discharging freely all the pus that s secreted. The whole trouble is with he stomach. The president has been a sufferer with dyspepsia for several years. All know that, and therefore ve handled the stomach gently. We administered just such ourishment as could best be assimilated. At first, you re- member, we gave liquid nourishment and followed it with solids as the iresident grew better. His stomach forked well enough up to last night, when it gave way suddenly. This auses the president trouble. His tcmach will not retain anything, lot even a spoonful of water. He has thrown- UD every thing iven him to-day. The president now must have nourishment. For a ime after he was shot it was not so ssential. He had fat enough then to ustain him. Now that he is ex- lansted and must be kept up with louriahment the waste goes 011 all tie time. The question now is "can keep up the "Can you do it, asked the eporter. We can for a while. There is no oubt of that, but whether we can ourish and sustain the president by enema" until his stomach recuper- tes if> the all important question. Doctor, do you consider the opeless? case not by any means. The presi dent.has a chance to get a ver; fair chance. His stomach may gaii strength soon and then there woulc be no trouble. Doctor, asked the reporter, does a patient sometimes grow so weak thai the fever exhausts itself? Not until dissolution sets in and that is .not the case with the presi- dent, and if the stomach resumes its functions he will mend right along There is no other trouble. At 10 o'clock there was an enorm- ous crowd at the white house, and the grounds were crowded. Everybody was seeking news, but the surgeons were still inaccessible. An Associated Press agent sent note to Dr. Bliss, asking if there was any news since the interview with him. He wrote the following note in reply: "The president is sleeping without anodyne. Pulse less by ten beats since the .evening bulletins. Tempera- ture not above 99.6; respiration 20. Altogether he was in a more promis- ing condition than at 6 :30. Has not vomited since [Signed] D. W. The president was given early in the evening a wineglass full of hot water. This sqpmed io relieve his stomach at once, and it was followed soon by three teaspoonfuls of milk which his stomach retained. After taking it he went to sleep and was sleeping when Dr. Bliss' note was written. He slept until when he waked up and was sponged off and went to sleep again. This greatly en- couraged Dr. Bliss, although it proba- bly indicated a relief of the stomach that might prove of incalculable ben- efit. The white house was closed at midnight, and though the doctors re- mained near the president they felt much more hopeful. Vice President Arthur and Secretary Blaine were advised by telegraph to-night of president's serious condition. At midnight everything looked more hopeful, though still serious. There is a hope and belief that the president may be better to-uiorrow -morning. Executive Mansion, p. m. Although there has been a feeling of anxiety at the executive' mansion to- day, no alarm was felt regarding the president's condition until late this evening. The fact that none of the surgeons have entered the business apartments of the mansion luring the day occasioned unfavora- ble suspicion, vrtiich the evening bul- letins proved was warranted. Since the bulletin was issued there b.as been constant arrivals of anxious inquiries' at the white house. The room of Private Secretary Brown has been crowded all evening. Among those first to arrive were Post- naster General James arid Attorney- General MaeVeagh. Shortly came Assistant Secretary of State Hitt, Secretary Windom, and Secretaries Sorkwood and Hunt, Second Assist- ant Postmaster General Elmer, First Comptroller Lawrence, General Frac- as A. Walker, Associate Justice Parian, General Sherman, General 3rum and many more of prominence. BAD BOYS, A St. lonis Variety Theator Quarrel Leads to the Harder of One of its Patrons. ST. Louis, August Patrick 3arly, William. Zacharitz, Oscar iacharitz, brothers, and William iacharitz, their cousin, and Louis Vtueller, boys ranging from seventeen o twenty-two years of age, were ar- rested between 3 and 4 o'clock this morning, for the murder of William Louderman, last Tuesday night. 'atrick Early is said to have fired the atal shot. The arrest was brought about through information furnished ;o the police by one of the local re- >orters of the Eepublican, who has >een quietly working up the ease for everal days, and "that paper had an account of the circumstances and de- velopment which culminated in the arjest. Patrick he is some- imes called, has confessed that he lid the shooting. He and the other ioys say the circumstances which ead to it are briefly these: That hey were at the Canterbury theater .aring Wednesday night; that Lou- .erman was at the wine room treating some girls engaged on the place that hey guyed him, and he called them ats and tramps.and applied other hard words to them, making them angry. When Louderman left the Caunter- >ury, young Early, the two Zacha- itz boys and Mueller followed him and when at the corner of Chestnut and Sixth streets they asked him, what he meant by calling them hard lames at the theater. Louderman, hey say, replied very roughly, and immediately pulled a policeman's ally out of his pocket and struck >ne of the Zacharitz boys on the lead, knocking him down, he hen struck Early a glancing low on the head, and while ttempting to strike him a second ime, Early drew a pistol and fired. Phis coincides pretty nearly with ome of the testimony given at the oroner's inquest about Louderman triking one party on the corner, and ears out most of the evidence given y Wolf, who was held as au aeces- ory. It appears that a local repojter f the Westliehe Post .was the first erson to get a clue to the affair, which he did through his landlady, whose young sou was a chance wit- ness of the shooting, and knew all or most of the boys engaged in it. This reporter then consulted a reporter on the Republican, and the two worked the case up udtil 2 o'clock this morn- ing, when they laid their information and facts before Acting Chief of Police Huebles, and in two hours all the boys were found, arrested and locked Another Redaction.

The Steamer Corwin's Among the Artie Regions-Dis- covery of the or Two Lost Whaling Vessels. SAN FBANCISCO, August Alaska commercial company's steam- a- i.f.J er St. Paul arrived this morning, bringing the following intelligence: Capt. Hooper, of the revenue cutter Corwin, received intelligence of the discovery of wrecked whalers by Indians May 20th and at once sent out a sledge party under Lieutenant Hearing to investigate. It landed on tfaleiehmin island June 2nd and made its way over the ice westward ;o the mouth of Wauweekenn river, about one hundred miles from Cape Serdge, where it fell in with a party of natives_, in whose possession were :ound articles taken from the wreck. Dorwin's party also saw and talked with natives who had boarded the wreck and exhibited three piles of articles which they said they had taken from her. They consisted ariifoipally of carpenters' tools. The following articles were recovered and have been brought to 3an Francisco to be forwarded to the United States treasury department. One whaling iron, marked "B. jossibly the Initials of the owners of ;he five dots, supposed' x> mean boat five; one pair of silver- bowed spectacles and ease; one pair of marine glasses, and one knife, narked V. on the -handle. The na- iives said the wrecked vessel carried a pair of reindeer horns on the end of icrjibboom. The Vigilant is known to have carried such an ornament, and is said to be the only one in the whaling fleet having such, which eads to the coucluson that the wreck s that vessel. Her cabin was full of water, masts gone, and four dead >odies found in her, one of them in a berth, th e others on the floor. The natives said the dead men looked as f theynad been dead many moons'; hat the skin of their faces was with- ered and drawn tight. From this de- cription it was surmised thafjthe ves- el was wrecked as far back as the winter of '79 or '80, the first winter nt. The wreck consequently drifted mt to sea and was lost sight of. The ledge party being unable to go farth- er westward on account of the melt- ngof the snow, proceeded to Cape 3erdge and were picked up by .the Corwin, June 29th. They traveled all 130 or 140 miles. The cutter had her rudder carried iway by ice on June 1st; but repaired t in St. Lawrence bay with materials obtained from the wreck of an whisky smuggler ashore there. Later she made a sound landing on this sland, and sent parties ashore to visit ;he scene of the destructive famine of 1878-79 in an Indian village. Few changes were discovered. The dead jodies were still lying about in num- icrs. The surviving natives appeared be in no want. They were abund- antly supplied with arms and amuni- lon, and also with goods plundered fom the wrecked schooner Latillo. ?he last intelligence of the cutter's movements is up to Julv 9, when she ailed from JSTorton Sound to Gaulpo slebay; thence she was to proceed northwards to Kaalzebe Sound and Point Barrow, to look after revenue natters; then westward to Wrangle sland, before the ice closed, to search or the Jeanette. The mildness of the irevious winter, and lightness of the ce encountered by the Corwin, gave" Oapt. Harper strong hopes of being We to reach and explore that land. VTialers who were interviewed con- idered the prospect favorable. Fears are entertained that' some whaler has been lost, as early in July arge quantities of whale oil was re- >orted seen by native and other hunt- is on the sea about Senoor island. Four casks of whale oil drifted ashore: bout the same time. These signs ive rise to the apprehension that ome returning whaler was wrecked n a fog on outlying, reefs or rocks bout that island. The fact that aekages of oil were found unbroken s thought to indicate that possibly ne entire side of the unfortunate ves- el was broken in, letting her cargo ut. No further details of the sup- osed wreck had reached Aunalaska p to August 4, when the St. Paul eft the Seal islands. The sealing sea- on closed successfully July 30. On 'Change at Chicago.

Vroidst all the excitement there were o failures so far as known to-night, ut the calling of margins strained a ew loans, and a great advance or reak would undoubtedly shake out a ew of the weaker dealers.
