A MOB IN MEXICO. Driven Desperate by Hunger Starving Men Attack the Troops. DEATH IN A PRAIRIE FIRE. They Succeed in Capturing a Storehouse and Help Themselves to the Grain Therein—One Man Killed. FOUGHT FOR FOOD. SAX ASTOXIO, Tex., Oct. 3.—Homer Finlay, formerly a well-known citizen of San Antonio, but who for the past six years lias been engaged in the mercantile business in the city of Morlia, Mexico, arrived here Sunday and gave a vivid account of the famine riot which occurred in that city last Sunday, and of which but very brief mention was made in the City of Mexico newspapers. He says that it was one of the most exciting and pitiable^ scenes ever witnessed in the republic, and that another serious outbreak of the same kind is threatened at any time. Thousands Starving. Morila is the capital state of -Mieh- oacan and the residence of the archbishop of the diocese. It is one of the most beautiful cities in southern Mexico, but notwithstanding- all of its attractions its several thousand poor people are on the verge of starvation, owing- to the total failure of the crops for the last four seasons and a scarcity of all food supplies. Mr. Finlay said: Speculators to Klame. "VThcn tlic famine was threatened several months ago several of the wealthy merchants of Morlia contracted for large Quantities or corn in the TJnUeii States, the total shipments amounting to 75,000 bustels, v.-hicli is enough to have supplied the suffering people. These speculators, however, put up the prices and extorted what little money the poor people had in a short time. For the pass two months the suffering among the poor has been intense and many deaths have occurred. The streets became thronged with Beggars and the hungry men, women and children aadc a heartrending appeal for help. Tlio Mob Organizes. "This was kept up until last Sunday, when the starving horde organized themselves into a mob and driven by desperation began'a concerted attack upon the food stores of the city. There were fully 8,000 people in , the mob, and the police were utterly powerless to stop its progress. One maiceria, or feet! store, was entered and but little corn was found. The frenzy of tie mob increased. The two regiments of Tcderal cavalry, and one of infantry stationed at Morlia were called out to quell the riot, but their appearance, only added to tho desperation of. the "Starving people. The commander planted the.soldiers in front at thanjoti, but they fought "their tvay through. Several persons were injured. One Man Killed. "Gen. Mercade, 'the governor of the state, by this time had made his appearance and came near falling a victim to tho vengeance of the mob, who claimed that he should have taken steps to relievo their suffertog. The; soldiers opened nre upon the people aria onq man was killed and several wounded.... Acting on command of its leader the mob started for the graHnarles of Joseph Martinez, in which 5.,000 bushels of corn were stored. They broke 1 down the doors and supplied themselves with all they could carry away. As soon as their temporary wants had boon supplied the mob quietly dispersed." Tlireo Cowboys Fatally Burned and Thousand Head of Cattle Perish. BOISE Cm-, Idaho, Oct. S.—In the great prairie fire that raged last week in the Bear River valley more than 1,010 head of fat cattle were burned to death, nine horses anc four cabins burned and three, herdsmen fatally injured. The cattle were feeding- in a small valley on Tuesday last. A strong- wind suddenly blew a sea of fire down upon them. Before the cowboys could turn the maddened animals the herd was surrounded by flames. The cattle huddled in the middle of a clearing about a mile square and despite the efforts of the cowboys they again stampeded. Many of them dashed into the flames, where thev perished in horrible agony. To save their lives the cowboys attempted to force their horses through a narrow belt of blazing timber. Before they had gone 10 feet the animals had inhaled flames and dropped to the earth, their riders being compelled to run back to their starting place. After raging furiously for nine hours the wind drove the Humes onward and friends from neighboring ranges came to the rescue of the. cowboys. Three of them are so badly burned that they will die.

UNIOXTOIYX, Pa., Oet. 3.—Frank Cooley, the leader of the famous Cooley outlaw band, was shot and killed Sunday at his father's home by a posse under Sheriff JMcCormick, of Fayette county.
