The President Fishes-The Emperor of Morocco Mad-A Little Seal Fur, and Some Yellow Fever. these leaders are killed in the fight. "I repeat that wc have clone everything wc could do to conciliate these people. The leaders arc entirely to blame. "I know the men who constituted the imprisoned posse. They are all good and brave men and will do their duty. "A. Girandot, the Frenchman who was killed, had leased land for many years from the Maxwell company at a nominal sum, and was a quiet, hard-working man. He was lately forced into the fight by Russell and other leaders. He has a large family and was married to a Mexican wife." LAND GRANT TROUDIJCS. Special to The Denver Republican. Trinidad, Colo., Aug. 26.-The war on the Maxwell grant is over for the present, the six deputies who were imprisoned in the hotel having made their escape last night as soon as darkness set in. The officers got in about 4 o'clock completely worn out and report a most thrilling day's experience. All day along the mob kept the house surrounded, pouring volley after volley into the house, until there is hardly six inches square that is not perforated with bullet holes. The trouble started in this way: As soon as the deputies arrived at the hotel on yesterday morning they were visited by a committee of the settlers, who told them that they must s at once leave, first giving up their arms. They were told by the officers that they were not there to provoke any trouble but to keep the peace, if possible, and that they did not propose to leave or give up their arms. They were in the hotel when this answer was given, and it was followed by a volley from the crowd that had assembled. The officers returned the fire when Squire Russell fell who, by the way, is not dead, but very seriously .wounded. Then the war began and the firing was kept up at intervals during tire day. The officers tried to make terms but the mob hooted at the proposition. As soon as night set in the armed ! settlers built a large fire opposite the house, and it was while the majority 1 of them were engaged in this that the officers escaped out of the back door. The settlers kept guard all night and it was 3 o'clock this morning before^* was discovered that the men had flown. D. D. Finch and R. L. Wootton, two of our citizen, went up last night in the capacity of peacemakers, and succeeded somewhat in allaying the excitement. The'Sheriff's officers have all withdrawn from the field and there will be quiet for a time at least, although it is not thought that the trouble is over. Although the officers were in the hotel all day and volley after volley was fired at them, only one was wounded. John Moss at the first round had the thumb of his rignt hand shot away. As to the number of settlers hurt it is hard to determine. However, in addition to Mr R-ussell, several others were wounded and one Mex ican killed. The excitement throughout the city is very great, the settlers having many sympathizers, but their course in resorting to arms is con demncd by the sensible portion ol the conmunity. The armed settlers who surrounded the hotel seemed to be under the leadership of O. P. McManis, who is acknowledged as a crank, and who had for years been urging the settlers to arm and resist. If he could be subdued it is thought that the difficulties could be arranged. DISCRIMINATION. Chicago, Aug. 28.-At no time since the interstate commerce act went into effect has anything been done by the railroads which has caused so much excitement and ill feeling among Chicago merchants as the recent action of the transcontinental lines making their rates from Chicago to the Pacific coast about twice as high as arc the rates from New York. The merchants of Chicago fail to comprehend why the roads of this city should consent to become parties to an arrangement that discriminates so outrageously against Chicago's interests and is calculated to prevent the garden city from competing with the east for Pacific coast traffic. Even the trunk line managers who have all the advantage, under the new tariff have emphatically refuses to join in the new through rates on the ground that they are contrary to the inter state law, and that they could not afford to use a tariff that makes a rate from interior points in their territory to the Pacific coast much higher than rates from the seaboard points.

Congress lingers, and promises to stay until after the election. .MOROCCO. London, Aug. 2S.-A dispatch from Tangier says the emperor of Morocco is determined to wreak quick and fierce vengeance on the rebels who massacred Prince Mulry and his 200 followers recently. The troops sent against the insurgents were given free license to butcher, ravage and burn. Neither children nor'the aged were spared, women beinji outraged and enslaved. The emperor has penetrated the disaffected districts, and it is reported that he is surrounded by the besieged,insurgents. The European powers are being urged to send ships to Morocco to protect the christians and Jews in the coast towns. ' CHOLERA in MICHIGAN. Cheboygan, Mich., Aug. 28.-It is reported here that cholera is raging in Presque Isle county and that people are dying off like sheep* with no physician in the neighborhood.

Roadmaster Rose, Dennis Griffin, Pat Ready and a number of others were injured. MR. PELS ON THE TROUBLE. Miv M. P. Pels, manager of the Maxwell Land Grant Company, was seen yesterday, by a Republican reporter. "We had done everything we could," said Mr. _Pels, "to conciliate those people since the courts decided the validity of our title. All along we have paid them more than their cattle and improvements were worth, but notwithstanding this a few demagogues are able to stir up a howling mob of two or three hundred of them to take the law in their own hands. "The fault of the county in previous troubles has been that there has not been a sufficiently severe prosecution of these disturbers. And the trouble will continue, in spite of anything we can do, unless sufficient force is sent to overawe the mob and capture the ringleaders, or unless FUR SEAL INVESTIGATION. Washington, Aug. 28.-The Alaskan fur seal fisheries investigation was resumed to-day. The general thread of the testimony was in keeping with that previously given. Morgan, an employe of the Alaskan Company said he thought if the government opened up that part of the Behring Sea the jurisdiction over which was ceded to the United States by Russia as a highway to ships of the world, the result would befjdisas-trous to the seal fisheries. All the vessels entering the Behring Sea, he thought, should be required to enter at the custom house at Onalaska, there to state their purpose of entering and give bond not to violate the laws of the government in these waters.
