KxoxviU.K, Tenn., Dec. 2. There is re
newed truuble among the miners at Oli
ve i Springs, It began Friday last, when
the free miners went on a spree, and they
have been terrorizing the region ever
since. On Friday tbey attacked tbe negro
miners, firing hundreds of shots. They
notified the terror-stricken blacks to leave
the district or be killed. Many of the ne
groes fled, but others called on the presi
dent of the mining company for protec
tion. Soon Found New Grievance.
The president secured the names ot ten
of the leaders and got out warrants for
their arrest. The accused men escaped to
the mountains, where two have since
been captured. The trials were set for
Saturday, but postponed. The miners
demanded the dismissal of the warrants,
and on this being refused they all struck,
and no work was done yesterday. It is
probable that the convict miners- will be
takeu back, and tbe leaders in the attack
on the negroes will be prosecuted.. Many
of the negroes had narrow escapes from

Nasfivillk, Tenn., Dec. 2. A meeting
was held yesterday at the governor's
office. All the state officials attended and
also the prison wardens. The meeting
was in relation - to the convicts. After
some discussion of allairs the superin
tendent of prisons was authorized to hire
l'JO men for Briceville and 100 for Coal
Creek for guard duty. It is believed that
the governor is determined to establish a
militia guard of seventy-five at each
stockade. The captured convicts have al
ready cost the state $S,C1I9, and as soon as
the stockades are completed tbey will be
inarched iuto them in spite of any oppo
