T., April 20.-- Regarding tha reported conflict between deputy niM nnd boomord, thirty -boomora were tnfcou i)risoaer,'98Teia beinse woundod. Ono deputy marshal was slightly hurt. For sovoral ' days uiea on horseback hnvo bdeii sooa fording tha Canadian river uorth of Purcoll into Oklnhomn. Men who came iu from limiting trips reported having seen large numbers . of boomers moving in a northeasterly direction, and a hunter who nrrtved last Eight declared that he had found a man plowing in a secluded valley twenty miles from Purcoll. Yesterday morning at sunrise thirteen prairie schooners, well manned, crossed the Snuta Fe tracks below tho. city and forded thorivur. The drivers nrged their animals with whip and clnbs, and tho train wns across and out cf eight before- many residents of Purcell were stirring. A citizen B«W them, however, and he told the others, who hnvo stated but claiais and hope to oc- o«py then* sooti after uoon Monday next. Tho story was soon known nnd before noon a meeting was held. The feolifig against the trespassers ran-higb, nnd lasido thirty minutes half a dozen men had started for them. It was finally decided that the oliief fleputy marshal be called upon to expel the raiders. In the afternoon tho chief deputy, accompanied by three iissitants, rode down to the river and took the same road. There was a fresh trail, and tho party followed this at a^llop. About fourS miles out a man noticed a thin cloud of siuoko issuing from the cofr- tonwoods to the right. A halt was called and three of the party rHConnoftereu. They discovered three wagons about 300 feet from the trail and five men seated around a fire eating their dinner. They were unceremoniously ordered to hitch up. The enterprising boomers were scared, and In less than fifteen minutes were on the back trail in chnrgo of one of tho deputies, who was ordered to escort them across the river nnd then picket the fording plsce until his coin- r»(lc» returned. The latter deployed as 8kirmishers and advanced slowly several miles. Suddenly a shot was heard 0:1 the left and a bullet clipped a leaf above the head of one of the pvty. A minute later a volley rang out in front, and « pony ridden by one of the deputies sank to the ground with a bullet in Its head. The chief of the deputies called out for Lis men to charge. Each bad unalunx his Winchester and all surged forward. They fired Into tho thicket ana shouted like mua- tndn. Thero was no response for several minutes, and the men began to think they bad dispersed their nt sallanis. They soon discovered their mistake. A man popped up nnd flred at them. This was the signal for another fusilnde amoiijt his friends. He retreated down the ravine just in time to escape the fire of tho deputies, who continued to advance and pump their repeat- . qvs. Hajf way down tho ravine the deputies Qlscpvoredtt rouyh barricade of logs and brush across the entrance, and simultaneously (I voioa exclaimed: "Now give Icto them. boy«," A sheet 6f flame poured from the barricade, and a Shower of bullets fell toward the deputies. They had been armed, however, And but one of their number baa been " hit. fcnd l«s wound was not serious. Tho chief deputy ordered n retreat, and gathered hit men about him for a council of war. It was evident that the barricade was heavily manned, lind that a direct assault would be disastrous. Therefore it was decided to attack the flanks of tho enemy. This movement broughttbodeputiosdlrect- ly above tuo barricade. At a given signal they began to snoot from tho top of the ravine right into the midst of the boomers,who were unable to defend themselves from tho attack, Ten minutes of rapid firing ensued, and then a cry for quarter wout up xrpra the barricade. ''We surrender," shouted a mau when the firing ceased. Blood pouring from a wound in his head attested that he. knew he had enough. A hasty advance to tho fort, and tho officers wore In charge of thirty prisoner*), seven of whom were seriously wounded. Two of tk;se will probably die. One of them has a bullet in his left Innx nnd the other one in his abdomen. Martin Fallou of Gainesville. Tex., received a ball in his left thigh. John T. White of Kort Worth wa» struck an t-np shoulder. Samuel Dodd of North Carolina has a deep gash In his forehead. Howard Prabochy of Texas suffered a shattered arm. Johu Youug of Louisiana was shot through the shoulder, The prisoners, all of whom had rifles, revolvers, and plenty of ammunition, were disarmed, the wounded cared for 03 well as possible, and tho march to Purcell was taken Up. The wagons and property of the boomer? were destroyed. Tho ganor were all southerners, mostly from Texas, ~aud rjre- gpnted a forlorn appearance. Their captain, Ed Mclritoah, said that ha had been concealed in the ravine for three days, and that the party was only an advauca guard pi more than 000. who, through agents sent ahead, had selected their claims and proposed to hold them with Winchesters against all comers. "We were notified of the indignation meeting in Purcell," ho said, "and hastily tlirew up the barricade. When we iirst discovered the advancing party we supposed there were only four or five, and Bred one shot as a warning. Then wo found that there wore more, and the boys fired several volleys. But tor the fact that wo were cooped up in the ravine those fellows conld not have dislodged 113. It wo hud Icuown of the movement to capture us wo ·would have boon f u l l y prepared. Tho Oklahoma league is roHponsible for our capture, but wo win get even with it yot." Mclntosh and the other prisoners were taken to the prison pcu, live miles, west of Purceli, an-. 1 , plnccd under a strong guard. Aa hut one ol the marshals wn\ woimdcil nnd bin injury istridintr, tho charge of murder can not be brought ngninst tho men.

C.WTURED BOOMERS UEIEAEED. KANSAS Cm; Mo., April 20.--A staff correspondent of tho Journal wir-ss that paper tho following from Fnrccll, I. T., to-ul«lit; Tlio apprehended trouble from tho wounding unit arrest of tho boomers has been averted by tha release of the captured men. The Texans changed the course of their march, and fearing a collision with United States troops, havu camped about five miles from tho Oklahoma- border. The two men supposed to bo mortally wounded yesterday now appear to bo in a fair way to recovery, aivj v.nlesa -through some unforeseen accident there will be no deaths resultiupc from tho battle. The Tcxnns at first sworo revenge, but* have prudently concluded to first tAko possession of their lauds, and if they secure their quarter sections they will be satisfied to let the. trouble drop. The rush from tho north Into Oklahoma still continues, aud will do so until after Thursday, whou it is supposed tho lines ofTnnrch will bo somewhat weaker. The line for Isixty miles south to Oklahoma fs practically unbroken. Like water iu u pipe, tbo wagons empty out at one end and till in at the other, always full, and so It Is from the south. All day long tho white-topped Wilsons pass through Purcell, which is only across the river from the Mecca of these pilgrims. The railroad is taxed to its utmost, nnd the Santa Fo has at last solved tho problem of running two trains north · on a single track against two riinniiiK south. With twenty or more trains A day on this now road, not a single accident has yo* occurred, the only misbap being tho breaking of the waterworks yesterday morning, which has caused a scarcity of water. Tho telegraph operators handling all these trains are constantly - at work day and night. That that work has been well done the record of no accidents will boarwitness. Tho business here js simply wonderful. THE HUMAN TI'JE STILL BOLMSO Off.
