A fiory Threat.
I'JTTsUt -Kfi. Kan., Aug. 21. Matters in
the mining d.strict have suddenly as
sumed a serious phase again. Thir'y of
I'ittsburg's best citizens have been sworn
in as deputies and gone to Frontenac to
protect the men who signed the agreement
w ith the Santa Fe company and want to
go to work. About 400 strikers assem
bled with the intention of preventing any
work, but were cowed by the deputies. So
great was the alarm created, however.that
175 or CuO members who had announced
themselves as ready for mining would not
enter the shafts.
The objecting miners were mostly from
other camps and were led by Walters.
News of the affair reached Topeka aud
Manager Devlin secured a special train
and reached here in the afternoon accom
panied by a few miners and a large num
ber of armed deputies. During the trouble
the wives of the opposing factions engaged
in a general strife. The situation is re
garded as very threatening. The men who
have signeil the agreement are greeted
with opprobrious epithets whenever they
appear. Continued demonstrations are
certain and a leverage is brought to bear
on the dissatisfied ones to induce them to
direuard their f'i.sngreements.
At. Weir City a n;gro who emerged from
one of the Central company's stockades on
an errand we.s set upon by strikers on his
return. He fired at tln-ni and then took to
his heels, followed by a fusillade, but es
caped. A company of armed French min
ers were drilled in a vacant lot th-'re and
afterward addressed by Thomas Horsley
inmost anarchistic vein. He advised ev
ery one to arm himself to the teeth, ihe
excited men formally resolved to visit the
Kansas and Texas company's shaft No. 'Si.
If they do bloodshed will follow.
At leaven worth Superintendent Carr,
of the North Ieavenworth mines, is nnx
ious to compromise with the men, but it is
not known what he will do with the ne
groes brought from the south. A strikers'
committee waited upon him Monday, aud
he made them nn offer of SO cents per ton,
which was rejected. He made a better
proposition next morning, which the min
ers considered in secret meeting, but de
cided to reject. They have evidently de
termined on no compromise. Carr has
made public the following letter received
by him, dated Leavenworth, Aug. 23:
"I take this opportunity to inform you
of how tilings are standing et present.
Curr, if you are not careful, by Monday
you won't have even a home left for we
ure growing tired of this thing. You have
. gone far enough with your niggers, as we
are going to let you know. Y'ou are very
hard ou the miners, but you will be sorry
for this work, and the day is not far oft.
Y'ou and your uigger are lucky if you are
not blown up before long. You have lost
many nights' sleep, and well you might
for things are looking very bad for you at
present. This is all I have to say." The
letter was signed "A Friend."

Dks Moines, la., Aug. 23. It is geuerally
believed that Governor Boies will be re
nominated at the Democratic state con
vention today. The party managers and
the rank and file of the delegates already
assembled could see no other.way out of
the chaos existing before this agreement
was reached. The nomination of Governor
Boies under the circumstances which sur
round it will be an event of an unusual
nature in politics. He has twice held the
o.Tice of governor and has written a letter
declaring himself conscientiously opposed
to third terns and decling to be a candi
date, wishing to retire to private 1: Y. The
party looks to him as its leader and has
been unable to agree upon any other man.
Bestow Willing to Bun Second.
Lieutenant Governor Bestow, the only
avowed candidate for governor, has agreed
to the nomination of Boies coupled with
his own rem '.initiation for lieutenant gov
ernor. 'I had ra her," he said, "have the
second place on a ticket headed by Boies
than first place without Boies."
A com.uittee was appointed to interview
the governor and urge him to accept. It
is stated that the governor listened
patiently to what the committee had to
say, and in his reply said sulstautially, so
it is claimed, that if the convention de
cided as one man. that he should be the
standard bearer he would respect their
Will Be Nominated "Willy Nilly."
"Whether he has consented or not it is
believed that he will be nominated, and
that he will not refuse to make the race.
The programme as now arranged is about
like this: The names of half a dozen "fa
vorite sons" will be presented, and a couple
of ballots will be taken. Then a motion
will be made that Boies be nominated by
acclamation, and it is expected to go
through with a whoop. Of course, the
plau may miscarry, but the above is the
intention ef the Boies men, and the Boies
men are the ones with the most influence.
The Silver Plank In the Platform.
The silver question remains to be settled.
While the party managers favor an en
dorsement of the national financial plank
of last year the free silver men refuse to be
satisfied with the arrangement and claim
to be strong enough to control the conven
tion. They had a secret meeting to agree
upon the method of conducting a fight in
Ex-Congressman 'Walter H. Butler, him
self a free -silver advocate, addressed the
meeting urging harmony and compromise.
A silver fight in the convention similar to
the controversy over prohibition in the
Republican convention a week ajo is
greatly feared by the Democratic leaders.
NEGRO SHOOTS A WHITE WOMAN.
A Iiouble Tragedy on the Open Street at
PlTTsiirRO, Aug. 23. A fashionably
dressed white woman and a colored man
met and engaged in brief conversation in
front of.the power house of the Central
Traction company on Wylie aveaue. The
woman quietly started on her w ay. The
man stood irresolute for moment, then
walked rapidly up behind ois companion,
pulled a revolver from his pocket and
fired two bullets Into her head. She fell
unconscious on the street. The man then
turned the pictol to his own head and
fired, the bullet passing entirely through,
tearing away a large piece of his skull.
He fell dead in his tracks. An excited
crowd collected. Friends of both appeared
and identified the woman as Ella Lawton,
of No. 8 Tennehill street and the man as
Edward Freeman, an employe of the
Black Diamond Steel works. The body
of the latter was removed to the morgue.
The woman was taken to tne Homeopathic
hospital. The surgeons say she cannot
possibly recover. One bullet entered at
