Late Tuesday night Hob Limerick and
James Harris Htole quietly to the place und
were just making off with the stuff when
the watchmen caught Limerick , but Harris
escaped and was not arrested until nearly G
o'clock yesterday morning. The charge
against them Is burglary , and the author
ities have but little doubt that they will
make things exceedingly Interesting for
them. Doth men wore taken to the clt >
jail to await a trial , which will bo given
them this afternoon by Justice rield Lim

charge , but succeeded In getting a\vay from
Constable Jackson. In order to make sure

Jackson slipped a pair of handcuffs on the
wrists of the two men when ho took them
from the justlco shop to thu Jail , fastening
them together. When ho was about to
leave them at the Jail he wanted to take tlic
handcuffs off , but suddenly discovered that
he had lost the key and all search for It was
futile. The men ate supper as Siamese
twins and seemed likely to pass the night In
the same condition.

been victorious with their warfare with the
Mexican soldiers. Once ngaln the wily In-

A day or two ngo n statement was pub
lished tlmt two companies of Mexican
troops stationed at Knaada had been or
dered to Quaymas , Sanorn , on the Quit of
California for Immediate duty. At the
time It was thought to be an ordinary and
unimportant transfer of soldiers , but the
report which now comes Indirectly from the
Mcxlc.m ufllcera at Unsada gl\cs that move
ment a most sensational aspect. Ex-Qov-
ernor Luis 13 Torres , who Is now general
of tlie northern and western departments
of Mexico , It says , has been making nnotliei
campaign against the Yarjuls In South
Sonata and northern Clnaloa. Ho had an
army of o\cr COO men and the plan was to
dispose of the Yutjul question at once and
I'resldent Diaz selected General Torres
foi this work because of his experience and
supposed . ability to accomplish the desired
purpose. Hut , like the other commanders
who have tried It , according to the report ,
Torres met the Ynquls and was defeated
The report sajs a iorce composed of soldiers
taken from different regiments , accompanied
by a party of national mllltl.i In command
of a lieutenant colonel
, lately arrived from
Mexico , where they had been in pursuit
of the laqiils in the Sierra do Dacatete
On the afternoon of the llfth day of the
march the ti.ill led the pursuers Into a
long 1 < , deep , nanow defile In the Sierra do
Hacatele. The walla of the canon were
almost precipitous , riblng to a height In
some places o\cr 2,000 feet and cov'cred
The command was halted and
skirmishers ! pushed forward to uncover any
possible ambush. The skirmish line climbed

of officers to be heard , but finally the colonel
founded n wounded bugler with vet llfo
enough to sound a call.
In a few moments , although still In range
of those deadly rocks and rifles , those of the
wounded able to move with assistance were
started back down the canon , while those
who were able to offer resistance fired volley
after volley at random Into the bushes on the
cliffs and had the satisfaction of
half-naked Ynqul leap convulsively from his
hiding place and come whirling down through
1,000 feet of space.
As rapidly as possible the survivors of
this awful onslaught fought their way back
to open ground , where their foe had not
dared to follow , and after a brief rest
dragged thembelves back along the route
over which they had marched so cheerfully
the day before.
The number of killed cannot be accurately
stated , but out of the column of 500 men It
is said at least 200 are cither killed or
wounded. An additional force of 200 militia
has been organized at Hermoslllo and the

believed. At any rate , all the Mexican
troops of Lower California and Clnaloa are

ganized against the Yaquls , but whether
General Torres Is to lead It or not remains
to be seen.
It Is said that Don Jarob Corda , a young
doctor , after the encounter In the canon , loft
a place called La Mesa with a small escort
to attend the wounded , and on passing a
place called Arenas fell Into an ambush

two days was disposed uf yesterday
by an amicable settlement b.tween
the attorneys , the defendants con
senting to an Injunction as prayed
for by the plaintiff and agreeing to
pay $210 9i as damages resulting from the
tie-up of the cars last Friday afternoon , the
plaintiff agreeing on the other hand to Kit-
Is fy the judgment In fa\or of Matthew W.
Clalr , iccently alllrmcd by the supreme
The arguments In the case were continued
during an evening session of the court Tues
day night , and the heat that had manifested
Itself all through the trial was even more ap
parent than ever. U was the Intention at
the hour of adjournment to renew the ar
guments yesterday , but at the opening
hour of court the attorneys were In consulta
tion and by 10 o'clock the form of the de
cree had been agreed upon.
When It was submitted to Judge Am

he would have gone n step farther He 'aid
tl at an attempt to have a judgment set
aside after It had been alllrmed by the su
preme court , on the ground of peijurcd evi
dence , could not be upheld unless the judg
ment was entirely based on such perjured
testimony There was other testimony In
this case than that which was alleged to
have- been pnrjurcd , and the judgment could
not hutc been annulled So far as the levy
was concerned , the sheriff had gone farthei

to It all the streets of the city free of chaige
The public had rights In the mutter , and
the decree would be signed granting the In
junction as prayed for by the plaintiff , re
straining the defendants from proceeding
further with their levy , as It was Illegal and
the cars of the company were not subject
to such seizure. It was further decreed
that the defendants were liable for the dam
ages resulting from the btoppage , and execu
tion was Issued against them In the sum of
Mr. Howe , counsel for the company , en
tered after the matter had been settled , and
wanted to know what he was going to do
