Pittsburg, Aug. 15. A leaden sky and
fitful showers contributed to the feeling
of depression which existed at the min
ers' camps at Turtle and Plum Creeks
today. The men huddled together for
shelter under the commissary tents nnd
having nothing else to do put the time
In smoking and discussing the strike In
oil Its phases. The spirit of aggressive,
ness. however, has largely died out.
The same grim determination to stick
it out until starvation brings defeat,
or their efforts victory, is apparent, but
there are no propositions to attain their
end by force, or to go contrary to the
The men nil realize that opposing the
law as represented by tho sheriff and
his deputies they would have about the
same success, as in butting their heads
against a stone wall. They have no
particular love for tho deputies, al
though there Is an absence of that
caustic repartee between the factions
that has characterized former strikes.
There were no marches this morning.
This has been the usual Sunday custom
at all the camps, but even If It had been
otherwise, the strict orders of all strike
leaders to watt quietly until after Mon
day, would have prevented them. Sun
day has usually been u2d by the men
to do missionary work among the work
ing miners. None of them attempted to
see any workmen, however, and kept
severely away from the company
houses. The march Into "Westmoreland
county will begin as soon as the Injunc
tion Is settled in court. Much anxiety
Is expressed as. to the outcome. The
men stake evsrythlng on their ability
to show the rlsht to assemble and
march on the public road.
AN ORDERLY MEETING.
This afternoon there was a large
mass meeting at Plum Creek. About
1,000 strikers and 200 miners from the
Plum Creek mine were present. Speech
es were made by President Ratchford,
Samuel Gompers, James R. Sovereign
and the local leaders. The meeting was
orderly and there was no interference
from tho denudes.
There is a possibllityof thecustomary
march taking place In the early morn
ing In spite of the strict orders Issued
by President Dolan against such a
course. Some of the men are fretting
under the restraint and Captain Bell
Ingham, who Is in charge of the camp,
said tonight, that he had not decided
whether to allow the march or not.
The deputies aro on the alert and say
they will arrest any who make tho at
tempt. Evictions from the company houses
has begun. One family has already
been evicted and their household goods
are on the roadside near Center. It Is
probable other evictions will take place

gardlng the double murder one week ago

Friday and Friday night the closest
watch was kept. At 9 o'clock the dyna
mite arrived and by eleven the explosive
was placed. Tho fuse was laid, the match
was applied and the attacking forco began
to fall back.
Until now the besieged men did not sus
pect what was telng dono, but with tho
flashing of the train which led to the
dynamite, realization of thslr peril came.
Men Jumped from cover and rushed
hither and thltler In full view. Hatfield
was seen to start for the path heedless
of a shower of bullets. A rush was mado
down tho sldo of the mountain.
Threo men dropped wounded. It was
useless to try to 'escape by the well
known path and tho desperadoes re
turned to tho top of their rocky fort, Hat
field directing them. Great boulders were
hurled over the rocks In hopes of break
ing tho fuse. Then camn tho explosion.
Pieces of rock and trees flew In every di
rection. When tho smoke cleared away
Hatfield's men seemed unharmed. Dan
Lewis, Steve Stanley and Jake Monroe,
who presumed In tho excited, leavo shel
ter, were si ot and are not expected to re
cover. Another chargo of dynamite was train,
but under cover of tho explosion Hat
field and tho rest of his men escaped.
Tho chase wns renewed, and hampered as
he Is by his wounds, Hatfield's capture
within twenty-four hours must follow.

be answered until August 11, the day
of the arrival of Prlnoe Henri in France.

and fourth assaults ended In long en
gagements within guard. The Temps

alarming. Had the Count of Turin's

This city wns, yesterday afternoon,
the center of one of the Ilvllest storms
that has visited this region In somo
time. It was of brief duration hut
while It lasted It made Its presence
severely felt. Lightning struck In sev
eral places, shocking threo persons arid
killing a mule. Houses In various parts
of the city were damaged by the wind,
trees wero blown down -or stripped ot
their branches In almost every- block,
many awnings, wlndows,'show-cases
and signs throughout the business dis
tricts were demolished, cellars wero
flooded, street car tracks blockaded,
wires blown down and tangled and peo
ple In general thoroughly terrorized.
At about 2 o'clock the Btorm com
meneed to gather towards tho south.
Half an hour later rain commenced to
fall In big drops. The lightning and
thunder, which were rather mild at
first, grew gradually in) Intensity and
with' It the rain increased In volume.
Twenty minutes after the storm had
set In a heavy wind blow up arid thus
like the rain and thunder and lightning
also Increased In force. About 3 o'clock
there was five minutes of stprm that
would lead one to believe all these ele
ments had agreed to do at once, then
and there, all the storming -scheduled
for the next year or two.
It was a cyclnne.cloudburst nnd fierce
thunder and lightning storm all rolled
Into one. The storm seemed to spend
its force In this supreme effort, for It
subsided quite porceptably thereafter,
as it satisfied perfectly with the. swath
It had cut during Its-. Short career.
No one dared venture out during this
fiercest period of the storm as the air
wns fairly filled with flying debris and
it Is doubtful also If one could manago
to keep afoot In an exposed place. The
downpour of rain was accompanied by
hall for a few minutes.
Lightning struck the house of
Thomas Phillips, wheelwright, 1514
Price street, tearing a hole in the roof,
ripping off tho siding and then enter
ing the parlor, where It knocked down,
the plastering, tumbled the pictures
from the walls, ripped up the carpet In
one end of the room, separated the
paper, from the wall In tho other, broke
a lamp chimney nnd took to theground
through the cellar wall, tearing out
several large stones In Its passage. Mr.
Phillips, who wns sitting In the parlor
and his son, William, who was In an
adjoining room wero both stunned but
In Dunmore the home of Lewis Saw
yer, on Rlggs street, was visited by a
bolt which entered through a rear gablo
window, and after leaving broken plas
ter and the streaked floors to mark Its
passage through the house, found an
exit by way of the front door. Mrs;
Sawyer and her Infant child, which she
held In her arms, while sitting on the
front porch, wero severely shocked. A1
neighbor, who saw the accident, rush
ed ovsr and picking the woman and
child up from where they had fallen
carried them Into the house and sent
for a doctor. Before the physician's ar
rival they had recovered. Neither was
hurt much, but Mrs. Sawyer suffered
for some time from the after effects ot
Another bolt in Dunmore struck a
haystack at No. 1 breaker and glanclne
o'f killed a mule, which was seeking
shelter behind the stack. Albert Smith',
the barn-boss, nnd his young son, Stan
ley, who were In the barn at the time,
were made to feel the close proximity
of the trUky fluid.
In the central city, whero awnings,
swinging signs, advertising banners
nnd show cases made easy prey for
the wind, the fury of the storm was
The double awning In front of
Gould's carriage woiks, on Linden
street, which had been left down over
Sunday, was torn from Its supports
and one of the supports blown through
a large French plato gloss window,
valued at $175.
Another largo plate glass window In
the Atlantic and Pacific Tea company's
store, In the Burgess block, on Lack
awanna avenue, was demolished by the
wind. It was the window to the left of
tho entrnnce, and in tho most protect
ed position of any of the windows,
which make up tho entire front and
side, yet it was the only one damaged.
From tho fact that nono of the frag
ments fell Insldo the store and that
tho exposed windows escaped, It would
appear that an eddy of tho current,
which swept up Lackawanna avenue,
must have whirled Into tho doorway
and by its suction pulled tho window
right out of Its frame.
The Atlantic Pants company's show
case, v.'hlch stood In front of their
shop, In the Paull building, Lacka
wanna avenue, was overturned and
tossed along the sidewalk for several
yards, Its contents consisting of sult-
