Special to The Morning Calu
Wallace, Idaho, July 14.— The troops
reached Wallace to-day at noon. Their ad
vance was hastened by a telegram sent to
Colonel Carlin that their protection would
be welcome. Since yesterday, after the
funeral of tlie dead strikers, the citizens of
this place have been dreadfully uneasy.
No one felt safe from violence and few citi
zens slept last night.
Th. terrible news from Old Mission
showed to what lengths the strikers would
go, and human life was not considered safe.
Every one in any way identified with the
non-union men was subject to insults. The
worst element of the town was in hearty
sympathy with the union, and disreputable
characters mainly composed the mob that
was ready for any outrage.
The Carter House, which was patronized
by the non-union men, has not only been
boycotted by the miners, but the entire
working force of the hotel has been forced
to leave town.
This morning about 20 employes of the
Granite mine were in town, and were
pounced upon by the mob.
"Leave town at once, partner," was the
salutation which greeted every Granite man.
All obeyed, of course, aud the 20 Granite
men were not seen ln the camp during the
rest of the day.
It was immediately after this that Colonel
Carlin rushed in two trains carrying five
companies of troops. At once on the arrival
of the train the troops patrolled the camp.
and quiet settled down like night. All the
union men and union sympathizers In sight
showed tbe most abject submission. There
were not many strikers in sight, however,
as all had withdrawn to their camp on the
hills. Even President O'Brien was not to
be found, and neither was G. M. Dallas,
representing the Montana union-, who has
been stationed here during tlio strike, and
who is said to have been in the party that
shot down the men in Fourth of July Can-
The situation here yesterday and to-day
before the troops arrived was one of almost
terror. The citizens realized hat they no
longer lived as free Americans, but were in
a small corner shut iv by high mountains
that inclosed like a battle the region peo
pled by a community of fiends who would
hesitate at nothing, and needing only the
slightest encouragement to precipitate car
Said one citizen to-night: "I was insulted
by the thugs who have been received with
open arms by the Miners' Union. The men
on tbe streets, a? sympathizers with these
men, took advantage of the occasion to get
even on ail old grudges. Any man they dis
liked they assaulted ana drove from the
town." The lowest thug in the camp, while
under the protection of the union, was
bigger than the Mayor of the town, and was
four times as big as tie wealthiest mine
owner. The Miners' Union men were the
autocrats of Wallace for the time being.
Worse than that, they were the despots.
To-day they are In hiding, like coyotes.
The arrival of the troops changed all this.
There was something awe-inspiring In the
sight of a line of regulars handling the r
weapons that was not lost on the strikers. "
Tlio funerals of the men killed at (Jen
look place yesterday. Two Catholic priests
and ODe Episcopal minister officiated. Four
hundred and fifty miners followed their
thrf-e dead comrades to the grave.
The undertaker and the two drivers were
the only living beings who dated attend the
A tragic feature of the affair was the fact
that John Steinlic. one of the non-union
dead men, was a Knight of Pythias, and yet
his brethren herein Wallace dared not ap
proach lis bier. The Miners' Union was
stronger than the Knights of Pythias. The
miners went to the funeral carrying their
guns strapped around them. Knights of
Pythias would have gone with dowers in
their bands. It would have been an unequal
battle. StHnlic was a member in g od
standing of Ivanboe Lodge No. sof San
Inspector-General Curtis is here, but
Colonel Carlin remains at Wardner.
The mine-owners to-day moved about the
Streets fr'.ely, and stand in bands in the
streets where their buildings are without
fear of an explosion. These buildings were
doomed had not the troops arrived.
All day long the strikers left here have
had interesting reading posted up on the
telegraph pole 3 and trees in the town.
Shortly after the arrival of the troops a
dappT young bespectacled lieutenant and a
Squad of regulars went around town and
nailed up notices containing the proclama
tion of martial law. One soldier guards
each notice. The strikers who can read tell
their fellows what the notice is and all move
sulkily away muttering curses, lt is learned

Another Review special says that Wallace
was in control of an armed and rabid mob
all last night. The victory of the union
men at Wardner yesterday inflated the
strikers with unusual excitement.
Upon the arrival of the union men from
Wardner yesterday many proceeded to get
drunk, and during the night the strikers
held high carnival and ran things about as
they pleased. This morning a number of
scabs came down from the Granite mine to
be paid off and leave the country. They
went into the Wallace Bank to get their
checks cashed, but a number of the strikers
marched boldly into the bank, bustled them
out and ordered them to leave town. They
hurried to the depot and cot into
the train. The strikers then marched
back to the bank and told the
officials there that if all tlio scabs were not
delivered up In an hour the bank would be
blown up with dynamite. The excitement
became intense and the miners grew moie
arrogant. Committees also waited upon
several people and told them to leave town.
Among those called upon were the clerk of
the Pacific 11-jt-l and the manager of tlol
ley, Mason, Marks & Co. Then Mayor
Dunn hurried a message to Colonel Carlin
and the troops were sent into the town.
The message was no sooner wired than one
of the strikers came into the telegraph oflice
and. drawing a rltle on the operator, ordered
him to send no more messages to Wardner.
The troops now have undisputed posses
sion, and the people are very thankful.
" SHELL-GAME WALLACE."
He Was the Worst Man in All That
Catai.do, Idaho, July 14.— At 12 o'clock
last uij-ht a report -.-.as sent out that 13 un
armed "scab-" leaving the country on the
Northern Pacific Narrow-gauge Had been
killed at Old Mission on the Cceur d'Alene
River, 12 miles from Wardner. The story
was that 100 scabs were there waiting for
the steamer wheu 25 armed striken dime
ud. The scabs declared that they would
return to the mines and go to work
when the troops cot into the mine-*. This
maddened the strikers, who drove the scabs
up Fourth of July Canyon and shot them
down. Mauy jumped into the Lieur

been drowned. One scab, William Abbott.
was shot through the lungs and was sent to
the Wallace Hospital, where he will die.
lie told the story of the killing. The Coro
ner immediately left on a special train with
two i takers.
"Shell Game Wallace," a gambler and a
notorious tough of Cosur d'Alene, was ac
cused of leading tho shooting party. Wal
lace denies it, however, and claims to be
able to p ove an alibi. He is still at lance
at Cataldo, the lion of the hour, but his men
are hiding in the brush.
The (hi Mission is a beautiful place,
there being a stretch of land for hundreds
of acre.". It has been a Catholic mission
since 1835b and is the toughest bole iii the
Cceur d'Alene country. There are two sa
loons there, a store, hotel and the Catholic
mission, but few dwellings. Jack Wimply
keeps the hotel and a saloon, where "Shell
Game Wallace" and bis following of cap
pers entertain tenderfeet and drunken
The Spokesman correspondent went to
the mission last night at midnight in a
special train. The town was quiet and no
one would ilk snout the affair. The men
were skulking in the brush and behind
stumps, and a, cordon of armed .strikers sur
rounded the camp. All strangers held up
are requested to give au accouut of them
All tho miners denied the story of the
wholesale killing; although they admitted
that there had been much fighting up the
canyon. They claimed that the strikers
fired in tha air to frighten the scab.-, who
were all unarmed.
Coroner Sims of Wallace met Colonel
Carlin at Cataldo. and told him that the
town of Wallace was in the bauds of the
mob and that human life was In danger.
He urge, the troop? to advance, but the
colouel ordered the Coroner not to go to
the mission, but to return to Wallace.
Coroner Sims accuses Sheriff Cunning
ham of the greatest villainy, charging
him with being In league with the sinkers
and an accomplice in all their work. Sims
says Cunningham Is the greatest villain in
ths Coeur d'Alene. Cunningham claims
innocence and says he has bepu powerless
all through the strike. Ho could not secure
a posse and bad to be circuinsjeci to save
his ow„ scalp.
However that may be. Cunningham now
is powerless. Martial law in- been pro
claimed and Colonel Carlin rules the Sho
shone country, Troops are now on the
way from Vancouver and other points. It
will take 2000 men to impress the strikers,
so thoroughly do they realize their own
strength, and tbe troops will have to remain
in the Cceur d'Alenes for the next six
months. There is but one telegraph wire to
the outside world, no Dress reports can
be sent out except at regular message rates.

Apart from the news of the terrible light
ing and loss of Ufa at the mines in the
Cieur d'Alene district, great interest is
beiug manifested in this city as to the prob
able issue of the affair from the fact that
many of the non-union miners have been
recently shipped from San Francisco.
Nearly 200 men have been sent to the mines
from California, chiefly through tho agency
of A. 15. .Jackson, the local employment
agent of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan Min
ing and Concentrating Company. Jackson
is a very experienced mining man, and be
was overwhelmed with applications for
The local unions brought considerable
pre. sure to bear on Jackson to try and pre
vent his shipping any mere men, but lie en
gaged all the .killed miners he could find.
-Many of the men sent up are married and
havo families, who are very anxious as to
their safety. Very few if any of the union
men now on strike belong to this city or
State— of them are residents of the
Georgo K. Smith, one of the union
strikers, and a member of the executive
committee of the Miners' Union, has come
down (ere for the purpose of seeing John
Hays Hammond, president of the Bunker
Hill and Sullivan Company, to see if some
reasonable settlement cannot be come to of
the difficulties. He has also come to try
and prevent the shipping of non-union men
to the mines. He due-, not think he will
have any trouble with the latter part of bis
contract, in fact he thinks in the face, of the
determined stand taken by the miners that
it would be difficult to get any more men to
go up there.
He made tho following statement to a
Cai.i. reporter yesterday: . "I have worked
in the now destroyed Frisco mine fur up
ward of two years past. 1 am delegated
with full power to act for the Miners' Union.
The wages are fair up at Coenr d'Alene,
S3 50 a day for skilled men and S3 for
shovelers and car-pushers. About a year
ago the union demanded that these latter
hlso be paid S3 50 and this was granted.
since then until tlie trouble began the un
derground men got S3 50 a day. Then the
owners reduced the shovelers and car
pushers down to _ i and added an extra
hour on the working day for all the men.
"This action the owners allege was taken
on account of the low price of sliver, but
this Is absurd, as the Cceur d'Alene is really
a lead district. The mines tne lead and sil
ver, sod working la tbese is injurious to
health; many of the men get 'leads as
we call it, from lime to time and suffer
severely from the poisoning.
"With regard to the violation of law, we
conteud that the Mine-owners' Association
was the first to break it. By the State law
of Idaho it is an offense to bring armed men
into tie Mate. Yet when the owners
shipted non-union men from Michigan, ou
April 15, they brought them in locked cars
under mi armed guard of 54 men. To my
mind this action was purposely taken to get
our men to riot aud break the law, so that
the owners could call on the regular troops
to aid them in working the mines with scab
labor. We have been. made desperate and
i reed Into what we are doing by the own
ers. Why, when the Governor issued his
manifesto not a blow had been struck.
"The account of the doings back there as
published in The Call, I think are the
most correct. 1 do not believe that tba
twelve scab men have been killed. They
might, perhaps, have killed Ifonaban, who
was the foreman of tho Frisco mine, for the
union men were very bitter against bim.
The BO cents reduction cuts no figure in tie
cau«e of the lockout, but the re.i. reason is
the determination of the mine-owners to
crush tho life out of organized labor. Why
the miners signed and circulated a petition
all through the Northwest country asking
that the duty betaken off silver-lead ores.
I have not been able to fee Mr. Hammond
yet. but In. I.i to do so later on. I fear we
will have trouble when the troops arrive at
the mines, ns our men are desperate, well
drilled and very determined. 1 do not say
they will attack the soldiers, but they will
resent any attack mm;.! upon tbem and
their rig '-, for sure."
.1. 11. Hammond was seen yesterday by a
Call reiorter, and gave big views on tho
situation as folio "Bo lar as our com
pauy Is concerned all our men were satisfied
until the union sod i rs band of agt. tors
stirred up mischief. We are rather favora
bly disposed toward unionism than other
wise; many of our best men were uniou men,
and I think they have been sadly misguided.
To show how fair we have been, before I
left Idaho wo placarded the walls with no
tices that we would take Hiiy miner back
union or non-union. At the samo time we
would not discharge any man who was
useful to as simply because he was sow
union. For instance, our foreman, Frank
Jenkins, is a non-union man, and he is very
popular with everybody.
"The men were Tree men in every sense
nf tbe word. They had steady work and
good wages, were not compelled to board at
any house, or to purchase any goods from
any i articular store. We countenanced
and recognized the union in every reasonable
way, but when it started in to dictate to OS
as to what men wo should employ or dis
cbarge, what kind of labor we were to en
gag. — in fact, to run our business as they
wished, why, we wouldn't stand it.
"1 am loth to believe that the news of the
last reported killing is true. I sincerely
trust It is not. It is too dreadful to think of
when a few short weeks ago the men were
so contented. That is, the men in our mine.
They are not tbe ones to blame for the
trouble, but the men who recently came in
from liv ttc and other districts. Our men
liave been coerced into this thing. I hope
the men will be brought tn gee the folly of
their conduct without further bloodshed or
trouble. 1 shall leave for the mines In a

any resort to violence would practically be
treason, and the pickets were advised to
ask the incomers if they were taking the;
places of straight workmen because they
needed lod for themselves and fami
lies. If an affirmative reply was re
turned tiie committee was authorized
to promise to help them until they could se
