FATAli MINING TltOLHl.E Clash Between Opportune Forces Kiuli In Bl.xMUhed Madfsonville. Ky Nov. 18. Mining troubles in this district brought more bloodshed Sunday morning. James H. Smith, a negro striker, is dead; Geo. Crouch, another etriker, is fatally wounded, while John West, Hut Daw son and Nathan Bush, all guards, are wounded, none of them dangerously. The trouble occurred at the mines of the Providence Coal company. 17 miles from here, where an atlack be gan at about 4 : 30 o'clock. The attack ing party, some 75 or 8; strong, first fired on the engine house and then ia a few minutes the company's stables were surrounded. A horse and a mule were killed and several other animals disabled. By this time the guards were becoming active and the attack ers formed in a semi-circle over the brow of the MIL From there they poured a well-directed fire upon the houses occupied by the non-union em ployes and their families. Men arous ed by the crash of bullets, rushed to small timber piles, arranged for use in such an emergency, and from be hind these returned the fire. The at tacking party, while sending volley after volley into this quarter, kept up a steady fire on the tipple, engine room, stable and other buildings of the company, while the guards for their part were doing effective work. The battle raged for almost an hour and a half, when the assailants withdrew, leaving Smith dead and Crouch shot through and through on the field. How many wounded they took with them is not known, but the leader was seen to fall, and it is believed some of the party who went to his rescue were hit. County Judge Ball at Providence 8tp-ted an investigation. An inquest was held, the coroner's jury verdic being that the negro came to his death at the hands of the guards while de fending life and property, and they were therefore justifiable. The news of the shooting spread like wildfire. It was not long before ilie news reach ed Adjutant General Murray, who at once commenced an investigation, opening up communication with the governor. Following the battle at the Provi dence mine there were riots at other Kentucky mines. An attack was made on the nine guards at the Monarch mines, three miles from Earlington. last night, but it was repulsed. Two employes of the St. Bernard coal com pany at Morton's Gap were fired upon by a man who sprang from behind a tree. There was much trouble at other places, but neither injury nor loss of life followod. Owing to the day's riots and tne serious situation in the mining field of Webster and Hopkins counties, the governor has ordered out the militia. The troops left for the scene of trouble this morn ing. A letructlve t.nle. Halifax, N. S., Not. 18.
