K0xvnxi Tenn., July 20. The
crisis in the" trouble between the ousted
miners in this district and tbe convicts
who were brought here from the stats
prison at Nashville, has at last been
reached. When abont 400 armed strik
ers attacked tbe guards who had charge
of the fifty felons at Briceville, last
Wednesday night, and liberated tbeir
charges. it was confidently predicted
that this wonld be bnt the beginning of
a general movement of this kind
throughout the entire mining district
of the state. Gov. Buchanan was im
mediately notified, and responded by
ordering two companies of militia from
Chattanooga and one from Knox. vi lie to
Of the fifty convicts taken from the
guards at Briceville, two escaped and
the others were brought to this city.
When tbe militia arrived they took the
convicts back with them and warned
the mob that they would protect them
at all hazards.
Gov. Buchanan at once proceeded
to the scene of the disturbance and
la neat speech explained his position
to the rebellious miners. He told them
that It was bis sworn duty to nphold
the law, and if the convict lease sys
tem was wrong he Was not to blame,
and that the only recourse of the men
was through the legislature.
The miners answered that their fami
lies were starving and that they were
competed to drive out the convicts if it
cost the life of every man tn the valley.
They made all sorts of fun of the hand
ful of beardless youths, bnt declared
that they would not harm the "spider
legged, cirgarette-smoking dudes" as
thef characterized the militia, but that,
as soon as the militia were withdrawn
they would release every convict in the
region. Becoming impatient, however,
at delay in the recall of the troops.
they decided to-day to overcome by
force of numbers and succeeded only
At noon the miners sent a committee
to the soldiers and demanded immediate
surrender. The soldiers laid down
their arms and the miners are now in
possession of the stockade. They com
peted the convicts, forty in number,
and 100 soldiers, to get aboard the train,
which took them away from the scene
of the trouble.
-More Convicts and (laarda Captured.
Knoxville. Tenn., July 20. After
the release of the convicts at Briceville
this morning, and the troops and con
victs had been placed on the train, the
mob went to the mines of the Knox
ville Iron Co., and surrounded the
stockade and captured the 125 convicts
there with the guards. They were
shipped away to Knoxville and ar
rived here about 5:30 o'clock. All the
convicts are now here in an old build
ing under guard. A call of some labor
leaders has been issued for a labor
meeting here to-morrow night.
It is renorted here to-nurht that tho
miners at Oliver Springs nave released
the 130 convicts, but at 8 p. mi this re
port has not been verified. -

diversity of opinion is heard. Many of
the laoor men say the miners have done
right. It is reported that a special
train will arrive here at 12 o'clock to
night with the first lot of troops, and
at 1 o'clock the second train will ar
rive. Troops are undoubtedly being
The troops who arrived here hearing
the statements made that they would
not fight, but wished the miners to cap

vehemently. The Chattanooga boys

and will return in the morning with re

treated by the people of Knoxville,
who seemed to be in perfect sympathy
with tbe lawless element in Coal Creek
At 10 o clock this morning 2,000 min
ers, farmers and other natives who
have no occupation at all, took posses
sion of the hills around the Briceville
camp. Fifteen hundred of these were
armed with rifles, the rest had shot
guns and pistols. They came from all
tbe mines in a radius of fifty miles.
The organization was complete snd
their leaders placed them along the
hillsides with military precision.
At the call to arms the little garri
son turned out gallantly and prepared
for defense. It was apparent at a
glance that a fight would result in a
ssacre. A meeting of tbe officers
was called, borne oeciarea inai a
stout resistance to the first attack
wonld be sufficient and the mob would
withdraw." Others thought that it
wonld be suicidal, yet every one was
hi favor of doing his duty, notwith
standing the exposed position they
were to defend. u
The miners called a parley and were
met on neutral ground by CoL Sevier.
They stated that they had sufficient
force to overwhelm tbe soldiers, but
did not care to shed blood if the con
victs were quietly turned over to them.
This request was emphatically re
fused. Tbe miners then asked CoL
Sevier if he would remove bis troops
and take tbe convicts with him. He
asked what would be done to the min
ing company's property, which was also
under his protection. They replied tbst
it would not be injured. He also ssked
if an attack would be made on the
Knoxville Iron Co-'s stocksde, just be
low Briceville. If such wss intended,
he would fall back there and fight it
out regardless of the consequences.
The leaders replied that no attack
would be made.
The troops then marched out of
camp, carrying with tbem tne eonncis,
