TheArrival of a Number of Aliened^Miners From Portland Causes^Some Little Rtpple of^Excitement.
(SpecialDispatch to th* Standai^l.
Wallaci.,May 1^. -The ball of excite^^ment was again set rolling in the C'oeur^d'Alenes this afternoon by the arrival of^nine alleged miners from Portland over^the LTmM Pacific. Immediately on the^arrival of the regular east bound train the^men stepped oil the cars and proceeded^leisurely up the track in the direction of^Gem. They were followed by a number^of union men. who endeavored to induce^them not to go to work, but all of the men^but two positively refused to have^anything to do with the miners here. One^of the men who n ln-nl to aucoinpany the^other seven men, was escorted to the^union's beadrpiarters. He was seen by the^PtATOaMi'l correspondent.ami in tho in^^terview ihat followed he said: ^My^MM* is Joseph H. Ounn. Three or^foul days ago 1 saw an advertisement^at Kincaid's employment agency on First^stret t in Portland tor Ml men to go to^Idaho. Shortl) aftcrwatd I met a man^named Hrewstet.who said that he wanted^HI miner) to work in a mine in Idaho. I^^ oinmenccd talking with bun at the St.^Charles hotel, l asked him it he had .tti)^thing totlo wiili the advertisement 1 bad^been and he told me he did not. 1 then^asked him if there was any trouble inhere^his mine was, as* I did not want to go^where th, re was any trouble. He said^MM there was no trouble Ml his mine,^and thai he did not expert there would be^any. I then told him thai 1 did not have^Ml MMM) to pay my fare, so he told me^he would bii) MSI ticket. 1 started from^Portland with eight other men. 1 did not^know there was any trouble here until I^left Spokane, when I found a dnil) |iapcr.^We stopper off at Tekoa last night w here^1 MSl met a gentleman w ho explained the^situation to me. 1 then told Urewster 1^did not wunt to work under MM circum^^stances When 1 arrived here to-duv 1^Mstl him for my trunk check which 1^gave to Mai on th^ train. He asked^Ml MM I intended to pay him what^I owed him. At hist I intended^to go up to the mine sml wot li out the^money I aw. 1 him. as I roul^! then quit^feeling that I was under obligations to^him, but I changed m^ mind and tolt' him^that be had misrepresented mutters and^that I did not intend to (to up there to^work at all. When I asked him for my^ti'unl. ( heck he said he wouli. see nie to^nigh' 1 told him that 1 did not have tho^money io |iay him, but would get it before^I left the country. Tho union men 1 met^did not make any threats.''
Mr.Hunn is an intelligent man and well^dressed. He is now at the union's head-^MmTMMsV The other men went well^drcsssetl. and from their appearance^would not M taken for miners,^although they were packing their^blaukvts up the track. Their hands mote^cloeel) r^ '-milled those of pencil sharpen^ers than horny handed sons of toil. Thcv^^^ay that they knew all about the trouble^here tor some time past, but they were^bound for the Gem mine and intended to^go to work. The miners here believe that^they are a gang of Sullivan's detectives^sent MM as citizens in disguise to act as^in mod guards over a large force of men^w ho .nt-now being gathered throughout the^eoiiiitM. Tho miners say that the\ know^an agent ot the Mine Owners' association^is luring a number of turn in Portland,^and that a train load of ^sralis^ are^expected It, leave for tho t'ocur^d'Alenes in a day or two. 'Ihe miners^MB MMM Ml the new airivals are^SutMvael MM, from the MM that ihey^should start to walk to Grm. a distance of^MM^ when a regular train would^leave for Gem and Burke over the North^^ern Pacific a few minutes af ter their am^v.iI here.

There is every' reoaon^to believe that the fight will be a long and^bitter one. It is highly improbable that a^compromise will at this late date be ef^^fected, as both sides have spent large^sums of money and gone Ma far into the^struggle to make any concessions.
