FIiHlTNEWMINERS POLICE QUICK TO RESPOND TO DISTURBANCE RAVE £LOSE TIME COLORED MINERS. Colored Strikebreakers Returning From Work Are Greeted by Jeers-Chase One Who Runs-Jailed for Safety Sensational Climax to Week of Fren zied Excitement. Fernie, B. C.-Three colored miners in jail for their protection, one running for his life, several shots fired by one of the colored men and the roughest evening yet experienced during the week of excitement are incidents of Saturday afternoon, after the arrival of the mine train from Coal Creek with the 400 colored miners aboard. As the negroes alighted from the train the large crowd of miners assembled to meet them began to boot and jeer, fol lowing them as they were taken away by the city police. One of the negroes was "treed" in his room at a hotel. It is said he flour ished a revolver and said that if any of his pursuers entered the room he would not be. hanged for only one death. He afterward promised from his window that he would not go back to work. The black man afterward concluded that discretion was the best under the circumstances and, leaving an extra pair of pants with the police, he headed for the outside, and after run ning after him a short distance the police gave up the chase. While keeping away from the angry mob another of the frightened negroes was heading for the north end of town. He suddenly turned and fired in the direction of his pursuers and came nearer shooting his protectors, the police, than lie did his enemies. Chief Bowen and an assistant were directly behind the man and both jumped aside to get out of the range and the mob ran by them. Before they could reach the negro he was sprawl ing on the ground, his pistol gone and he was receiving showers of blows. The police succeeded in rescuing the man, telling the mob leaders that if they would desist from throwing stones he would arrest the negro and lodge him in jail. To this the men assented and three of the negroes are now in the city jail, while the other one is seeking his own safety in his own way. Nine or 10 provincial policemen have arrived in town from points as far distant as Phoenix and Greenwood and Chief of Police Colin Campbell from Victoria. Another flurry of excitement was created about 9 o'clock by a hurry call to the police stating that a dead man had been found near MeDougal's mill north of town. The two chiefs, Minty and Bowen, made a rapid drive, believ ing the fleeing negro dead. Investiga tions showed the body to be that of a lumberjack, killed by a passing train.
