TROUBLE AT CAMP
Fatal Gun buel Between the
Laborers and Overseers s
OCCURS AT A RAILROAD CAMP
Squad of Laborers on S. & W. Fire
Into Superintendent's Camp-One o
of the Agitators Killed and Several 1
Others Laid up For Repairs. f
Marion, N. C.. Special.-As a r.- t
suilt of a difficulty between laborers,
oflieers and workmen of eamp No. 6 t
of the South and Western Railway e
Company, one workman 3s dead and r
three others are seriously injured. One a
of the workmen, who attempted to as
sist the camp officials, sustained a se- v
vere flesh wound from a pistol, but it P
is thought not to be serious.
The trouble came about in this S
manner: One day last week several
men, representing a squad. came to (
Mr. J. M. Cross, superintendent of j
camp No. 6, and demanded full pay to o
date for all their squad on the divis
ion. Mr. Cross explained to them ,
that the checks came on the 20th of a
each month, and that he had no a
money with which to pay them, but r
would pay all at the earliest possible (
moment. This did not satisfy the men, -
and they sent to Spruce Pine and se
cured several pistols, guns and other
weapons. together with a supply of y
ammunition. Monday night aboutP
6:30 o'clock, two of the agitators b
came to Mr. Cross' house at the camp,
called him out and demanded their
pay for all. While Mr. Cross attempt (
ed to explain that this was impossible ,
the spokesman seems to have given j
the signal. and his followers turned a

vo chief reasons for taking this

3. "Send them away." The disciples
tlled Christ's attention to the fact
iat this was a desert place, and as
ie multiude had been there since

rci'ide for all their necessities. "Sit
own." They sat in ogderly ranks for
le convenient distribution of the food
nd so they could be easily numbered.

ig to Matthew Jesus said, "Bring
uem hither unto Me." All must centre
Him. We may have but little, but if
