IIATK WAH SETTLED.
Milwaukee, May 11. The recent rate
war on lumber and freiglit to Missouri
river points lias been brought to a close.
An agreement existed between all the
lines reaching the Missouri river that
the rate shomd bo fifteen cents per hun
dred on carload lots, on which basis
Iowa would be twelve cents. Under a
misapprehension the Chicago & North
western cut the rate from Clinton to
Council Bluffs, taking lumber at eight
cents, doiu thi3 from the supposition
that the Milwaukee & St. Paul had prev
iously cut the rate to nine cents. This
coming toother Chicago lines, Commis
sioner Medfrey ordered a reduc tion in
the regular rates from Chicago to river
points from fifteen to eleven cents. Pro
tests from the Iowa trunk lines associa
tion reculted in an agreement to-day.
Kansas lines have not yet restored rates,
but will probably, on Monday.

court to day, returned five indictments
against Paul Strawback, charging
frauds in his accounts as deputy mar
shal. Strawback wras appointed United
States marshal for the southern and
middle districts of Alabama about tlie
time cou-iress adjourned. Brewster
Cameron, chief of the special agents,
has been here about a -wttk mvesti
iratiu'f the accounts of Osborne, a
former United Stales marshal. Straw-
back was deputy under Osborne for a
uumbcr of vear.-. and it is alleged his
irregularities are three years old, and
ae lor services iu arresting parties, etc
The indictments cause great excitement
h' re, as Strawback was regarded as a
leadiug man in his party. He demands
an immediate trial, and claims that he
has a good defense, and the whole mat
ter is a plot among rival faction of his
party to ruin him and drive him fiom
THliIU HIDING PLACE DISCOVERED.
Sax Francisco. May 11. A Chroni
cle Ilermosileo, Mexico, special saya
Col. Torres returned last night from
the Sierra Madres. He haa been pur
suing the Apaches for twentj days on
a trail wi.ioU led to the Montezuma
district, iu northeastern Sonora. At
Guazonar he was joined by Col. Gar
cia, and there made a forced march of
five days and nights for the hills in
the Sierra Madres. Scouts spied the
Indians moving off. Twenty-five scouts
have found a large body of Indians
in a stronghold heretofore unknown to
the oldest scout. The Indians have
the appearance of having been settled
three or four years. They had a quan
tity of stolen stock, and a number of
old huts. The scouts weie attacked
and driven back to the main body of
the troops. The mountain being in
accessible for cavalry, the troops dis
mounted and made a march of twelve
miles, and found the Indians strongly
intrenched in the crest of a large spur
of the high mountains. The troops,
300 strong, madean attack. They had
to climb the mountain on their hands
and knees, The Indians failing to do
harm by filing, rolled boulders down
the mountain side without effect. The
chief, supposed, to be Juh had stationed
himself on a high point of the moon
tain to command tlie Indians. His
voice could be heard distinctly for
mile.. It took two hours for the
troops to gain the crest of the moun
tain. When they reached it two were
shot dead. The fight on the summit
lasted two hours. Swinging around to
the left of the Indians, they made an
attack with bayonets, and forced them
from their position. The Indiana fled,
leaving eleven dead bucks on the field.
Fivo soldiers were killed and eight
seriously wounded. The Indiaimwere
driven for miles. Their trail showed
much blood. A great many are sup
posed to have been wounded. Torres
says it was the most savugn fight ever
made with the Apaches. They were
armed with repeating rifles. The
Apaches retreated to northeastern Chi
huahua. Col. Tories thinks thero is
no doubt that the much was the long
unknown stronghold of the Apaches.
It is ISO miks east of Sonora, and
about the same distance from the
Aiizona border. He says that the
trails of all the small bauds depredat
ing in Sonora and Arizona leads to
this place. The troops returned to
G nay mas.
