San Francisco, June following dispatch from General Crook was read at the military headquarter this afternoon: "SILVER CREEK, Aru., twelve miles nortli of the boundary, via Tombstone, .June left here May 1, with one hundred and ninety-three Apache scouts niidcr Crawford, Chaffee's company of forty-two men and the Sixth cavalry, carrying rations for two months on mules, I followed the hostile Chericahuas. Tbe roughness of the country is indescribable. A number of mules lost their footing. slipping from the trail and fell down precipices and were killed. Tue strong- hold of the Chiricahuas was in the very heart of the Sierra Madres. The position is finely watered and covered with a dense growth of timber and plenty of grass. Thev had been camped near the head of the 'Barispe river, occupying prominent elevated peaks, affording a fine lookout for miles, rendering surprise al- most impossible, and making retreats se- cure through the rough, adjacent canons. Captain Crawford, with the Indian scouts, early on the morning of May 15, SURPRISED THE VILLAGE: of Chala, the chief who led the recent raid into Arizona and Kew Mexico. The lasted all day and the village was out. The damage done cannot be estimated. A number of dead bodies were found, but the indescribable rough- ness of the country prevented a count from being made. The entire camp, with its stock and everything belonging to it, captured. I learned from the prison- ers taken that the Chirieahuas were UXANIMOUS FOR 1'KACE, and had already had two messengers try to reach San Carlos. On the 17th they began to surrender. They said their peo- ple were much frightened by our sudden appearance in their fastnesses and had scattered like quail. They asked me to reratrlu until they could gather all their bands together, when they would go back to the reservation. By the terms of the treaty, ray operations ware limited to the time of the light, and told the Chirlcahuas to gather up their women and children without delay. They answered that they could not get them to respond to their sig- nal-, the fugitives fearing that the signals might be made by our Apache scouts to entrap them. They told us they had a white boy who was in the village surprised by the scouts. He had run off with the squaws who escaped, and who had not yet been heard from. They assured me that every one of the band should come in if I would remain a short time. The terms of the treaty embarrassed me greatly, and being in that rough re- gion with my rations rapidly disappear "being between three ana four hundred to was eoiujielleci to ivH-irn with the Oriiracahuas. WL- found MX MEMCiX CAI'TIVES. liTf v.-oir.er. find one child, taken by the Chiivcaliua- early in May. They are nov with thfc command. These women aa; cajittued near the Mexican Cen- tral at a place called Carmen. They, further state that when the CUiraca- hiias discovered that the Apache scouts were in the country they became greatly alarmed and abandoned the 300 head of cattle they were driving away from points in western Chihuahua. The cattle were afterwards picked up and driven off by a body of Mexicans. Til8 -MARCH HOMEWARD. We marched back rapidly as the con- dilion.of the ?tock and the of the women and children would permit. We fount! the country depopulated for a dis- tance of ten miles from the Apache strong- hold. The insist that they have always.lived in SierraMadres: then even when the main body went on the reservation some remained behind in the mountains. There are quite a number of captives who state that they have never been on a reservation, I have strong hopes of being-able to clean the momtnins of the last of them. Of these with us are Loco and Mana, often reported killed, and the families of other prominent chiefs. We saw no Mexican troops, and after leaving northeast Sonora did not sec a Mexican, other than the captives rescued. I have rfuch assurances from the Indians that the white boy will be brought back alive, I am looking for him evcrv mo- ment and will inform you by courier." WASItlXGTOX SEWS.

Washington, June in his address in the star route case has outlined the requesis the prosecution will make in Us orayers for instructions to the jury.and. if they are approved by the court, it is likely that the final chargp will be strongly against the defendants. Undoubtedly the prayers in behalf of the defense will strike at the vitality fhe indictmeut. Not much hope is entertained on that side of a favorable reception of their prayers, many of which were formulated for the purpose of securing exceptions for use'in case of an appeal should the court reject them. The defense will probably maintain that the statute of limitations has run "against this case, but already Judge Wylie has practic- ally decided that point so far as his courtis concerned. Judge Wylie seems dis-! posed to use all his power to secure a Terdict of some other words, to prevent a disagreement. A curious fea- ture or the case is the position occupied b> Kerdell. He has confessed himself ciiiltv, and yet should the jury acquit the other defendants, itwould have the effect of set- tmg aside this plea of guilty of conspiracy and thus in a negative way declare him nnoceut of the charge of which he admit- ,ed himself to be guilty. To-day's session in the star route trial was devoted to hearing arguments based upon the prayers for instructions to the ury. The prayers number twenty for the Drosecution and an even hundred for the defense. The pra3rers for the defense were sub- mitted without argument. A large num- ber of them are attacks upon the insuffi- ciency of the indictment. Ar.otber rjoint made is that all or none of the defendants can be convicted. The court adjourned until to-morrow, when the .charge to the ury will probably be delivered. Although the ster route trial is not yet ended, the record up to this point is the argest ever made in a criminal trial in ,his country. Printed in small type and octavo size, it comprises over six thousand iages, or about four millions two hundred md fifty thousand words. The record in ;ho Guiteau trial comprised, two thou- sand seven hundred pages and was re- garded as of extraordinary length. SUIT AGAINST STAR ROUTERS. In June, 1882, an agreement was made Between George Bliss, assistant United States attorney, and Robert G-. Jfngersoll, attorney for Salisbury, Parker, and others interested with these combinations of star route contractors, to refer the claims of the government for alleged overpayment on various routes to Richard A. Elmer, second assistant postmaster general, for arbitration. Elmer has been examining the payments on routes belonging to th'ese contractors ever since, and having con- cluded his labors, Eimer recently directed the attention of the postmaster general to the matter, citing the Revised Statutes, which say that if any sums are wrongfully paid by reason of false statements in the mail ser- vice, the postmaster general must sue lor tbe recovery thereof. The matter being referred to the attorney general, heitecides the arbitration was not binding, anil suit was therefore instituted against the above parties on the 8th inst. The amount sued for is nearly Elmer's investiga- tion developed large overpayments, par- ticularly on the route running from Wil- low Ranch, Calafornia, to Reno, Nevada. Other suits against the same parties are to follow, and also against other contractors. Washington, June Van Wyck has written another letter to the postmaster general concerning the Nebraska mail route recently let to Miner. He says "a vision or messenger must have appeared to Miner in tbe prisoner's dock advising him to present himself at the postoffice department at a certain hour to be conveniently in a room adjoining the chief bureau, but not engaged so noitily in business or abstracted in thought of the prison gloom into which the bureau was aiding to plunge him as to prevent his overhearing the conyersation of the chief and a portion of the Nebraska and that then, forgetting his prosecution and forgiving his tormentors, he should at once relieve the perplexed bureau by send- ing a clerk to convey the joyful tidings that he would cheerfully accept the proffered route. Strange that this innocent circumstance should wear the semblance of conspiracy. In this case Mener was doubtless the most innocent and a portion of the Nebraska delegates the most guilty, as will api" ar hereafter, and the central bureau the willing, however, to be deceived. The excuse for this illegal letting was thai since congress adjourned, strong oet'tions bearing the endorsements of the beau men in Nebraska and Dakota. were urging it. The records of your de- Kartment show that three petitions, one :om Neligh, over one hundred and fifty miles east ot FortNiahrara, on the line of the Sioux City and Pacific railway, con- taining one hundred and forty names. The second carefully omits to give any locality, but from its text it evidently conies from the Black Hills country, with one hundred and twenty names. The third and last is represented to be by citizens of northwestern Nebraska, which includes a large territory and sparse population, signed by eighty-nine persons, bearing the car- marks of professional skill. Star routes always operate successfully in the region of forts and camps. Here appeared an army of sutlers and sub-con tractors, under Miner, and as Port Niabrara is a.quiet retreat for soldiers they hailed the excite- ment of signing a petition, and they weie accordingly utilized and nearly seven hun- dred soldiers and army teamsters were transferred from the muster roll to this petition presenting the sufferings of the citizens of i-Tthwestern Nebraska, leaving about probably genuine citizens to plead for this sen-ice.1' IfAVAL VESSELS FOR SALE. Upon his return to Washington, Secre- tary Chandler will ad-'irtize for sealed pro- posals for the purchase of two iron-chids. two iron and twenty-six wooden scrips, which have been condemned by boards of inspection as unfit for further naval ser- vice. The following vessels now at Mare Island are included in the list: Benicia. Narragansett, Kyack. Saco, Tuscarara and Alaska. The remaining vessels are at tastern and southern yards. Proposals for their purchase will be received until about September lo. THE STAR ROUTE TItTAI. Iii the star route trial Judge Wylie con- cluded his charge at and the jury retired. THE JAPANESE INDEMNITY FUND. The department of state has been ap- prised by Bingham, United States minister at Tokia, of the delivery to tlie govern- ment of Japan of the treasury draft for the amount of the indemnity fund returned to that government by tbe United States. REDUCING RKYEXUfi DISTRICTS. The president to-day had a long confer- ence with Secretary Folger in regard to the question of reorganizing and consolidating internal revenue districts, so as to meet the requirements of the law. It is pro- posed to settle the question as soon as possible. TIItDEST 18 TOVGJOt. Samuel TlMen In a Remarkable State of Preservation. New York, June following will explain itself: "Ihave been spending a few days at Greystone with Governor Tiiden, and not i merely because his old friends in tbe west j and south have an ever-present personal j interest in him, but because his name is at: this moment upon the lips of politicians of every class all over the country, I propose to give the readers of the Conner-Journal some particular account of him. When I parted from him a year ago I did never expect to see him again. Indeed, I was so skeptical of the stories concerning his restoration to health as to feel a deli- cacy about intruding on his privacy, but he was good enough to send for me and I went over to Gramercy park in a some- what sorrowful, sympathetic state of mind. My surprise almost exceeded my gratification. The old house is undergoing reconstruction and enlarge- ment on a magnificent scale, but the old library is still the same, being held from the hand of dispoiling splendor for the last. I take it as a tribute of an affection- ate remembrance of old times, old friends and old books. There I found the gover- nor, and if an apparition had stood be- fore me I could not have been more astonished. The days of 1S75-6-7 seemed to have come back. His low voice was found again, his eyes were bright and his cheeks rosy: his intellect as sinewy and clear and his wit as incisive as they were when he made nothing of riding 'Black- stone' to Harlem and back or driving the 'Kentukcy Boys' from Grammercy park to Greystone. He took me all over the new house, pointing out various changes, ex- plaining his general design, and discuss- ing architecture and architects with char- acteristic intelligence. He quite tired me favorite and malevolent way he bus of punishing his long stairs, meandering through labyrinths of decorative art and threading tapestried andYrescoed mazes of corridors and cham- bers. On current affairs he talked with his usual pungency and candor. "When endurance had ceased to be a irtue, I said; 'Governor, don't you think we have had enough of this t' "He smiled, and in his dry, half pitying, half sarcastic way, replied; 'If you are tired, we will go down stairs.' "At Greystone his life is of the simplest and busiest. He has a farm hard by, and no end ot pet poultry and blooded stock. Of course, I had to be dragged over this farm, and the devices which the old mau put slyly forth to trap me into some unguarded treason to the butter and eggs of my blue grass country were many and ingenious. I stood my ground like a hero; but it must be owned that the governor's farming is like every- thing be well done. While I was at Greystone not so much as the shadow or ghost of a politi- cian crossed the threshold or appeared upon the grounds. Surrounded by his nieces and his books, the old statesman and philosopher was as unreserved in his conversation as lie was and always is, simple and cordial in hid hospitality. "One of the young ladies told me that the little household find got through over two hundred voi times last winter. The governor is a voracious and versatile reader, no less than an attentive and -wise observer of affairs, and we talked of every- thing from Thomas A. Kempis to Thomas A. Hendricks. He playfully observed that the chief objection he had heard to the election of Mr. Carlisle to the speakcrship was that in some recent volumes published by one Mr. Proude there was a suspicion that he had mistreated his wife. "Here I must stop. I know that the Siblic is most curious to learn what are r. Tilden's views of political affairs, current and prospective. I have little doubt" that if I had the right to speak T could by faithfully report- ing him make myself interesting and in- structing. -But the opinions of every man are his own and his hotibe is sacred. I never knew a man more entirely frank in his intercourse with hi? friends than this sage of Greyston; but I am nnt his mouth- piece, and it is not for roe to come all the way from Kentucky to New York to do that, which he is so much better able to do for himself. Nothing passed to lead me to modify the opinion I have so often ex- no power on earth could in- duce him to accept the presidency. [Signed} "HESKY WATTERSOX.'' THE TRIAL. OF THE DYNAMITE CONSPIRATORS. London, Jane trial of the men concerned in the dynamite conspiracy was resumed this morning. The steward of the steamship Parthia, on which Dr. Gal- lagher, iJernard Gallagher arid Ansbaugh sailed from New York in March last, was cross-examined by Ausbaugh, who elicited that no more connection apparently ex- isted between him (A-Ubbaugh) and either of the' Gallaghers than between him and other passengers. Precautionary measures on an elaborate scale are being taken to prevent the rescue of the prisoners while being conveyed to and from the court. Mounted policemen, with drawn swords, surrounded the van containing the prison- ers, and policemen with revolvers ride in- side the wagon. The streets were also cleared to allow the rapid passage of ve- hicle-. A boy employed in Whitehead's shop at Birmingham refused to swear that Wilson was one of the men who visited his em- ployer. Some servants in thevhotel at Bir- mingham, and other witnesses from there, however, swear that they saw Wilson leav- ing the town with a trunk noticeably heavy. After the policemen concerned in the ar- rest of the prisoners had given formal evi- dence, the court adjourned. Au Effort to Form a Passenger Pool. Chicago, June to a call of the vice-chairman of the joint executive committee of the trunk lines, a meeting of passenger agents of the roads in the.terri- tory nortli of the Ohio river and east of the Mississippi was held he're to-day for the purpose of considerieg the question of a general passenger pool throughout that territory. About twenty roads were rep- resented, including the trunk lines. The matter was discussed at length and favora- bly, but as some lines whose acquiesence is deemed necessary were "nob represented in the meeting, definite action toward the formation of a pool were taken. Tin: H-ISCO.YSIX cnsTiiAL. Milwaukee, June annual meet- ing of the Wisconsin Central resulted in the re-election of G. L. Colby as president and treasurer, and E. P. Abbott as vice- president and secretary. TlfSS CROPS. TUclr General Condition iu the North- west.
