FOUR ALLEN OUTLAWS
AGAIN OUTWIT POSSE
Detectives Lured to Drcakfast
Rendezvous to Learn They
FUGITIVES MILES AWAY
Throne Gather nt Itonnokc Jail an
SJdna Edwards Is Locked Up
Mount Aiiit, Jf. C, March 24. -That the
Aliens ran at least outwit the Baldwin
Deteotlve Agency was demonstrated
to-day when that organization had visions
of the capture of the four outlaws.
Information came to them that the
fugitives would take breakfast, with a
friend at a specified hour. The detectives
planned to walk In and capture them
However, tho outlaws changed their
plana and ate breakfast several miles
from where thoy were expected to be.
Consequently thedetectlves ore shivering
in the rain in the mountains to-night
and awaiting another clue.
After spending the night two miles
south of the mountains the detectives
started out at 4 o'clock this morning and
were careful to remain at the foot of the
hills where the Aliens are hiding. The
forces both from Hillsvlllo and here
engaged in the raid and felt there was
nothing to do but walk in upon and
quietly take their prisoners.
Of course there was no capture, and
there probably will not be until the au
thorities of Virginia decide that they are
dealing with desperate men of keen in
telligence, quick to shoot, wlio fully realize
what capture means.
It Is believed the detective. were minted
In the breakfast for the purpou of
giving the fugitives an opportunity to
move to some other locality.
The work accomplished coiiHiated of
searching every house at the foot of the
mountains from the Fancy Gap to the
Ward Gap roads and swinging in a olrclo
around the section where tho outlawj
are known to be hiding.
One of the features of the hunt was that
Jack Allen, brother of Kloyd and Hldna
Allen and father of Friel, wus seen riding
through the section where tho outlaws are
hiding. The explanation of his conduct
was that he was searching for his son
with a view to have him surrender to the
authorities. Be evidently doos not know
tlie-son's whereabouts, but is ready to
do anything to save him from the elect rio
It looks now as though the plan of
driving tha -aliens out of the mountain
nil 1st bn resorted to. Could the piirsueru
cut off their food supply, they might bo
uhle to force them out and catch them in
the cities, where they are likely to find
Preston Dinttins, wlio was charged with
Sidna Allen with counterfeiting and served
a term in the Federal prison at Atlanta,
returned to this city to-night and talked
of the Allen affnir. He said .Sidna Allen
threatened his life and forced him to mako
the mould for counterfeiting and that the
Aliens had planned to shoot up the GreeiiH
boro Federal court in the event that
Sidna was sent to jail.
Koanokk, Va., March 24. Siduu Ed
wards, nephew or Floyd Allen, took his
first automobile ride on hi arrival here
late this afternoon, when he was driven
from a suburban railroad crossing to
the city jail, where he occupies a cell on
the same floor with the other three pris
oners. When .Sidna jumped into I lie six pas
senger car he smiled with delight. He
was asked if he had ever been in a machine
before and replied in the negative. He
wus questioned concerning hi case and
the whereabouts of tho other members
of the Allen clan, but said the statement
given out while in the Hilliville jsil was
all hu had to say
The prisoner, wlio has been reported
to lie in a weakened condition, sen mud to
1ms hearty and said hu Ml tine.
Edwards, who was uken from the
Hlllsville jail yesterday afternoon, spent
last night in the home of Detective
Thomas Felts at Blair. He was brought
here by Detectives Tom and Iea Kelts
and fiergt. Whitn of a local military com
pany. Although the time of the arrival
of the prisoner was not generally known,
several thousand persons gathered at
the city ju.ll an hour before the train ar
rived and when the prisoner was drivon
up to the building gazed eagerly to catch
u glimpse of tho young man.
Heveral bundled persons who had
gatheied at the ruilroud station to meet
the train bearing the prisoner were (lis
appohitud, since ho was taken off at a
point in tho suburbs,
Detective Kelts arrived to-night and
told of a confession made by Sidna
Edwards whllo he was on his way to
iioauoke, Mr. Felts said Edwards ad
mitted he was standing in tho doorway
of the court house at the time of the shoot
ing anil that, when Kloyd Allen passed
through the door making a retreat, he
asked Hidna for his pistol.
Edwards said ho gave htm the revolver
and that later he found Kloyd Allen in
front of the jail, shot. Kidna then got
his pistol back from Alton. The prisoner
denies having tired once during thn shoot
ing in the court house.

London, March 21. Premier Asqulth's
determination to end tho great coal strike
by drastic military measures if necessary
whatever tho owners and miners agree
upon to-morrow, In addition to the fact
that many families actually are facing
death by starvation, is having a quieting
A determined effort will be made to
morrow to open several collieries In
north Wales, where the strikers are said
to be discontented at their leaders' failure
to gain n substantial victory.
In case the striking coal miners refuse
to accept the mimlmum wage bill at to
morrow's conference between them and
the oiierators, thn Ninety-third High
landers have been ordered to hold them
selves In roudiness at Glasgow to go
anywhere nt a moment's notice. .Similar
orders, it is believed, have been given to
other regiments stationed at different
points throughout the kingdom.

at meetings in many different places to

complete divergence of opinion among
them ns to the prospect of a settlement
of the strike, .lames itnnisey MucDon

Unit notwithstanding a few minor brenkn

solid than ever hi demanding the mini

that tho Miners Federation could not

On tho other bund, Albert Stanley,
M. P secretary of tho Midland Miners
Federation, said he bnlioved and hoped
that a settlement of the strike was near.
He felt sure that some understanding
existed which warranted the Government
in suspending the progress of tho bill on
Friday and calling for tho conference of
mine owners and miners to-morrow.
-James Hanfcsm; M. P., agent for the
Derbyshire Miners Association, was an
other optimistic leader. Ho said he ex
pected ii settlement of tho strike to-morrow,
possibly by agreement and without
the aid of any bill.

GOV. WEST TO RIDE 500 MILES.
Wants to Attend Meeting, but Lacks
Salbm, Ore., March 24. Gov. West
will rldo on horseback from Sulcm to

miles through tho mountains, to at
tend a meeting of tho Western Govern

man of small menus nnd says he wishes
to attend the meeting, but does not feel
he can nfford to go on thn train, nor Is

lature to refund it. His suitcase will
be two saddle bags.
