" \YASHiNoro.v , October 3. In the
matter of the star route coses Distric
Attorney Corkhill" appeared before
Judge Cox this moni'ng and asked i
it was not necessary for. those agains
whom the information has been filec
to answer to the court before i motion
could bo made to sot it aside. The
court replied in the aflirmntivo. Col
Corkhill then asked that" no motioi
may bo entertained on the part o
the defendants' counsel until the government
ornmont bo given two days' notice
Judge Cox agreed to this and duo notice
tico will bo given through Special Attorney
tornoy William 0. Cook.
Notwithstanding Judge C x's de
cision not to listen to any motion for
quashing the information against the
star-routers until the government has
had two days' notice , the defendants
have not given notice , though a mo
tion to quash is already prepared am
is in the hands of General Totter. I
will bo submitted to the court on
Wednesday or Thursday , if an oppor
tunity is otl'ercd. It will bo based 01
the ground that the recent tiling o
the information before presented to
the grand jury was unusual and tha
the facts alleged and set forth are in
sufficient to maintain the decision.

WASHINGTON , October 3. At 11 a
m. the grand jury began to hear wit
nesses in the Guiteau case. The firs
called was Surgeon-General Barnes
and a half dozen others were disposct
of by noon , as follows : Dr. Lamb , Gee
Adams , Mrs. White , Officer Kearney
Detective McElfcst and MrJ Bailie

Guitcau's statement. It is expectet
that a bill may bo returned some tinf
It now appears that the witnesse
heard by the grand jury in the casoo
Guiteau to-day wore not fully exam
inod. Surgeon General Barnes am
Dr. Lamb were requested to icturi
to-morrow , to which time the gram
jury adjourned. It is possible that a
presentment will bo made to-morrow
and perhaps an indictment will also bo
returned , as by to-morrow evening
Scoville , the counsel and brothor-in
law of Guitcau , will have arrived

received from Smith Jones , Nolson-

Within the past few days there have
been reports in circulation that parties
contemplate an attack upon the jail ,
and it was said that Now Yorkers ,
Jersoymen , Philadelphians and Balti-
morians were to make the attack. No
such attack was mado. Tlio probabil
ity is that the report had its ori in in
the fact that a few days ago a deter
mined looking man asked for admit
tance to the jail and was refused.
It was noticed that he was heavily
armed. When ho loft ho suddenly re
marked : "You may feed the wretch ,
but wo will got him on Sunday night. "

The news from Peru ia ominous
The provisions which the governmon
anO. Chilli are trying to arrange ar
prevented by the turbulence of the
Peruvian outlaws. The Picrola gov
eminent and the Muntonroso are in
sympathy and Chilli dare not oyac
uato. Caldoron has asked Chilli to
withdraw her troops , hoping his gov
eminent would bo uphold but the bos
informed Jpooplo besought delay ii
evacuation , fearing the assassination
of Caldoron and cabinet , and a roigi
of murder in the event of the with
drawal of foreign protection. I'ho
terms of peace between the provin
cial government and Chilli have boon
nil arranged , Caldoron acting on ono
side and Senor Gody on the other.
The Piorola faction have doomed it
[ > rudont to conceal the terms for the
present , although Gody has gone
back to Santiago. Commandcr-in-Chiof
General Lynch , of the Chillioii force ,
remains with alargoarmy in Pom , as
irotector and is in constant commun-
cation by cable with the homo gov
ernment. Matters nro much compli
cated by a strong feeling of the ma-
oiity party in Chili to have peace do-
: larcd with one or the other factions ,
mvo the troops biought homo and
lave Peru left to take care of herself
, ho best way she can. The president
jf Chili , however , and Commander
jynch and their adviseis know too
veil that if Peru is evacuated no terms
of peace would bo observed , and
lonco armed protection continues ,
L'ho Peruvians still hope that the
United States will assure her protect-
irate , gather up the revenues , pledge
heir payment to creditors and some-
low attend to their affairs and got
hem out of their difficulties. They
lover dream that they will have to

.urud them and returned them to the
ovcrnmont. Also the war material
liey had tinned over to Piorola.
Jenor GiilneC.ilderon , ininihtor of
oioign affairs , disliking this Chilian-
ciforonco OB likely to provoke the
upposition among tlio Peruvian that
lei o really hai been no terms of
caco made , asked an oxphmtion.

imdo a secret compact with Colono ]

fused from Chili , by acting in concert ;
that in addition to the arms which
Chili had furnished Mngdalotm for its
protection , Piorolas sympnthuors wore
furnishing moro , both combined to be
mod to intimidate Chili , and that the
desertion was a part of the treacher
ous program. This discovery has incensed -

The shipments are heavy , including
all tlio commodities of commerce , with
the exception of oats , potatoes and
vegetables generally. The rich agri
cultural lands with which the hills are
invested have this and last year moro
than supplied the demand. In addition
to the annual heavy shipment of ma
chinery , there is this year that of rail
road iron for the Homostako company.
Thu great demand for lumber and
wood by this company has made the
facilities of a railroad necessary in
supplying the demands of their great
mills. At present they have eight
miles graded , on four miles of which
the iron and tics are already laid. The
object of this road is to supply the
company with fuel.
The mineral and agricultural wool th '
of the lllack Hills never stood out
moro protuberating than they do to
day. It has a combination of all the
elements of wealth , singularly blended
within a radius less than a hun
dred miles. There is , in the first
place , an abundance of- timber
for all the local wants of the
country , Ihulding most of the finest ' - >
varieties. Limestone and , gyp umv.
enough to supply the world. Gold
bearing rock is nc t found much in
loads or crevcesoi but in solid moun
tains , sufficiently rich to pay for mill
ing and mining. ROCK has , been
found in the Hozpl. Tigen and other
mines that will yield from $50OdO to
$80,000 to the ton. On the oilier
hand , much of the rock milled by the
Homestnko will not , or docs not , yield

tempting to idle capital 'in the east.
But as a general thing the mineral
body of the country is not sensational
iu its developments , Capital is moro
easily captivated by ( a thrco-inch
crevice of § 20,000 rock than by a
mountain of < [ iuirt/ yielding only 85

prove much the richer investment.
Then wo have silver mines in vari
ous parts of the Hills in which metal

all the varied salts with which it is
known to form a base , such as chlor
ides , carbonates and sulpherets. Some
of them , just partially developed , are
enough to bear shipment to the
smelting works at your city ami
give largo profits in return to the ship
per and owner.
The silver in tor tints of the country
are moro neglected than the gold ,
while the machinery employed in
smelting and lixivatmg is moro costly
aud complicated than used in the
production of gold bullion.
There are many millions of dollars
ia the placers that will within the
next Ion years bo added to the gold
productions of the United States.
Much of this will bo obtained by
hydr.iulicing ai soon as the small ,
wandering streams can bo "rounded

miners. Tlio introduction of artesian
