RAYMOND, ALBERTA Raymond. Sept. X. Skouson, father of the Skouson boys at Hay- nioud, in u letter to his family here from El Paso. Texas, states that it is still unsitfe to return to Mexico as American life and property is still In imminent danger from the rebels. They made an attempt to return but they were cut off by the irisurrectos, who destroyed the bridges both ahead and behi-ad them. H was only nfter great difficulty and strategy that they were able, to rejoin the Mormon refu- in El Paso. The leaders of the church have now issued instructions to the people to refrain from cross- ing the border until a settled condi- tion is established iu the republic. .Mr. Skouson states that he left 3000 bushels of wheat, 1000 bushels of oats and about 75 terns of hay to the mercy of the rebels. Out of sixteen head of horses he was only success- ful in getting five across the inter- national boundary Hue. The others were stolen by the rebels. This gives some idea of the loss the Mormon settlers iu Mexico have sustained, but there is a little'hope held out that some portion of their be re- trieved." The' Uuitdd 'States goveni- ment has now issues an ultimatum to Mexico, and peace may expected within a few months.'. The U. S, gov- ekimeut will protect American people aud interests in that country.
