We:r Citv, Kan., July 20. The negro
miners from Alabama have arrived. A
detachment of cowboy guards from sbaf s
Nos. 6 and S, of the Central Coal and Coke

was so early that none of the strikers was
on hand to spread the news. Later in the
day a committee was appointed to visit
the stockade and commune with the col

them under the belief that the company

entrance to the stockade, but were imme
diately ordered out by Manager Perry. A
meeting of the strikers was called in the

own presence. There were 1.2.4 people
racked sa the theatre when Secretary
Close was introduced. He advised them
to meet the operators ha'.f way and
counselled moderation. Chairman UDon
nell followed with a similarly pacific
speech, and a motion was carried to send
to the newspapers a statement that the
negroes were detained against their will
and that they had been brought hereunder
Fight If the Negro- Go to Work.
This statement is based on the fact that
two negroes have left the stockade and
joined the strikers. They addressed the
meeting and said they had been brought
to W eir City under a misapprehension
and that nearly all the other negroes
would quit as soon as they learned the
true state of affairs. A battle is inevi
table today if the nc-groes are put to work.
No troops have yet arrived.
