A Train Load of Italians Arrive and"

They Arc From Pocahontas, Bound to
New York. Fare Paid as Far as
Norfolk. This City the Dump
ing Ground for the Coal
It would appear that Norfolk is be?
coming thedumpiug ground for all tho
destitute laborers from l'ocahoutas,
Sunday last.sixteen men arrived here
and were taken to the police station
whore they were reported as vagrants.
These men hud been curried from
1'hihulolpliia to thu Flut Top Coal
Fields without knowing a strike was
on aud tlecliuiug to work under the
ciroumstanbee thoy were returned to
Rust night, at 10:10 o'olook, a train
arrived hero from 1'ocahontas with
more dostituto laborers and iu a very
short while Capt. Outbrell had tl tho
police Btutiou 120 Italians. 'Iber:- men
wero also from Pueolioutaa. The;- vre
met at the Norfolk und Western sta?
tion by a sipiad ol police and r.iaroued
Thoy woro well clad and I ap
ooarauco was nut bad, but uer all ot
them wore without money. A vfity in?
telligent young, who wus tho boss of a
gang of lifty men, said they wero sent
from New York; that they know noth?
ing of a strike and that they expected
to work oa a railroad at Sl.'J? per day,
When they reached Poeahontas thoy
found soldiers and very little work and
uot tho pay expected.
The men woro not coal miners and
could not make a living at the wages
paid aud work olfcrod. lie said that
Hckoti wero furnished his men, as they
thought, to New York. Nearly all of
them are absolutely unable to speak
1'iiiglish and when the train reached
this city tlicy were put off.
The policu are making tho men, who
appear to be an orderly sot. as com
iortuhlo as possible, but how long l'<2(>
ignorant men will be orderly wheu
they geit hungry is a question of im?
portance to i he city antborities. What
will bo dnno with them will be deter?
mined to morrow.
