Followed thu hoBtllea to Ohlracahua.
The country id of Indescribable rough-

footing stepping from the trail , fell
down the precipices and were killed.
The stronghold of the Ohlraoahaas la
in the very heart of the Slorre Madres.
The position its finely water
ed , a dense growth of timber
and plenty of grasp. They had been
citnpod for miles near the head of the
JBavIspo , occupying prominent elevated
peaks ,
for miles , rendering surprise almost
impossible , and making retreat aoourc
through adjacent canons. Captain
Crawford , with the Indian scouts ,
early on the morning of May 15th ,
surprised the village of Chata , the
chief who led the recent raid intc
Arizona and New Mexico. The fight
I lasted all day. The village was wiped
, out. The damage done cinnot bo es
timated. A number of dead bodies
were found , but the Indescribable
roughness ot the country prevented n
count being made. The cntlro camp ,
with stock aud everything else belong
ing to It , woo captured It waa learned
from the prisoners Uken that the Ghlra-
Cahuas were unanimous for peace and
had already sent two ine < uengora tc

could gather nil the bands together ,
when they would ro back to tha reser

ray operations wore limited to the
tlmo of the fight. I told the Ohlc-
acahuus to gather up their women and
children without delay. They an
swered they could not get them tc
respond to signals , the fugitives fear
ing they might bo eot by our Apache
scouts to entrap thorn. They told us
v they had a white boy nho was in the
village jumped by our scout * . He
had ran off with the cqnawa who on-
caped , aud who had not yet beet :
heard from. They assured me everj
ono of the band should como in if ]
would remain a abort tlmo. The torim
of the treaty embargoed mo greatly ,
and being in that rough region with
there being between three aud four
hundred Chlracahuas to feed , I wai
compelled to return with the Chirac
ahtua. Wo found six Mexican cap

in by Chlracahaua early in May. Thoj

was held hero to-day for the purpose
of considering the question of a gen

The matter was discussed nt length ,

ncquioaconco was doomed necessary
were not represented In the mooting ,
no definite action toward the forma
tion cf npool was taken.
A resolution waa passed , however ,
setting forth thu desirability of pool
ing the gross money earntnge
arising from all bneinctia received
from or given to lines went of Chica
go , or which crosses au Imaginary
line drawn through those two
points and originating at or destined
onboard points. A committee was

WASIIIHGTON , Juno 12. Judge
SVyllo began hla charge to the ntur
route jury this afternoon nftcr thankIng -
Ing the jurymen for their patient
attention during the treary months cf
the trial , and reminding them that
they had nothing to do with public
demand , iiowewaperartloleo , or appeals
to sympathy , but innot decide the case
upon the ovidoccj. Ho at onoo com
menced to atato the legal points In
Jadgo Wyllo then turned to the
printed prayers nnd commented upon
these not already dltpoted of In hia
preceding remarks. Touching the
amount of credence to bo given Her-
dell's testimony , Judge Wyllo said it
was not to be dhcrodltod because it
was that of an accomplice , If It was
corroborated by other witnesses and
sustained by material theory and as
pect of the case. In considering the
testimony given by the defendants ,
the jury must make allowance for
the temptation to which they wore
exposed. He conld not grant the
government's prayer that the jury be
directed to regard ns circum
stances tending to provo guilt ,
the refusal ot the defence to produce
books aud other written evidence upon
notlco. That was not law. It did
not allow an unfavorable inference to
bo drawn from auch refusal , but it al
lowed the prosecution to glvo second'
ary evidence , and it wna good for all
U conld fairly prove , nnd it conld not
afterwards bo impeached or contra
dicted , The court thought the jury
oould find any other of the defendant !
guilty of conspiracy with Rerdell. OJ
the failure to call Boaler and William-
sou the court aftid the jury was at llb <
erty to draw nn Inference ) , If they be
lieved that those witnesses could have
given important nvldrncc. This dla-
posed of the prayers for the prosecu
tion. Judge VYylio then proceeded te
answer such prayero of the defense a :
wcro designated by that aide. The
jury was Instructed It was their dntj
to find there was no conspiracy If th (
facto proven could bo accounted foi
by any rer.aoaublo hypothenU o
Innocence baaed np < ? n evidence
A large number cf prayers attacking
the indictment , npon the ground tha
it had been drafted under impropei
statute , and in some places orronooni
discretions given were , refused. Th <
ninety-ninth prayer , admitting tin
right of the jury to disregard the en
tire testimony of a witness wh <
knowingly aweara falsely on a mate
rial point , was allowed. The nine
teenth prayer , clothing the defendant
with the presumption of Innocenci
until proved guilty beyond a reasona
ble doubt , was alao allowed. Man ]
of the remaining prayers for the do
fenoe wcro refused , und the remnlndci
withdrawn. A number of exoeptioni
to the charge were noted b ;
counsel for defense. At Bllse
suggestion the jury were instructed
structod they might find conspiracy
between Peck and ono of the defend
antr. The foreman aoked that thi
jury bo furnished with a copy of thi
charge , but Jndgo Wyllo amlllugli
said that it was "all in the air. " Hi
had no record of It. If the jurj
were nt n loaa In regard to any point
of law , the court , upon their appllca
tlon , would relieve them. Bailiff
were then sworn to take charge of thi
jary. A copy of the Instrument wai
tjiven the jury and they retired. Thi
court then * ook a recess until 1 (
o'clock to morrow morning , will
