The situation became so alarming Fri

Delta in a special train. lie arrived at
home Friday night and organized a po-se
ot twenty two men and started for this
city, arriving here at 12 o'clock midnight.
It was the intention to pull quietly into
town and get the men into the coal mine
before the strikers were aware of their
presence. The strikers were all on the
street in a body, and saw the train com
ing in. When the coaches stopped near
the coal chute the strikers, 2iH) string,
made a rush as the posse alighted to gain
the mine ahead of the officers. Then the
strikers began firing upon them at a dis

CAPTURED BY THE KNIGHTS,
A Meeting Cal Vd to Iienounre Grand
Rochester. X. Y.. .Dee. H The men
who left the K. of I during the clothing
workers' strike some time ago called a
meetiDg for last night to deiiouuci state
ments made at the Indiau tpolis meeting
of the Alliance supreme council to the
effect that employers here were payimj
starvation waes. The hall was packed,
but a large majority of those present were
Knights of Labor who kept the meeti ng
in disorder nntil the committee on resolu
tions had been appointed by the men at.
work. When the committee went out to
consider their resolutions the knights
captured the meeting
To Sets of Resolves.
They immediately adopted resolutions
declaring that the employers had reduced
their workmen to a condition akin to
slavery, and indorsing all that Wright
had said at Indianapolis. While this was
going on the other men had sent to police
headquarters for protection and a posse
of police was seut to the hall. The "regu
lar" chairman then tried to proceed but
was greeted with hisses until one of the
leaders of the knights requested that
quiet be kept. The resolu'.ious of the
callers of the meeting were then adopted
to the effect that Wright h id told a tissue
of falsehoods and denouncing the Kniuhts
of Labor. The meeting then aujjarned.

FoLCiiKEErsiE, X. Y., D.'c. 14. Judjrj
Barnard Saturday, in special term,
quashed the writs of mandamus granted
by him on Wednesday, on the application
of Frank llasbrouck and Edward B. Os
borne, Democratic candidates for county
treasurer and senator from tne Fifteenth
district. He held that there was no evi
dence that the so-called "quad marked"
ballots cast in Ked Hook were marked for
identification, and that the- board of
county canvassers had no right to canvass
or count them for any candidate except
the Republican candidates for whom they
were in fact cast. Judge Barnard directed
that the certificate of canvass as to the
senator be given to Mr. Deane. As Mr.
Deane is dead this decision necessitates
another election for senator in the Fif
teenth district, comprising Dutchess, Col
umbia, aud Futnam counties.
