Before Mine Battle Trial is
Resumed
WILLIAMSON. W. Va, Jan. m
Federal soldiers nnd a heavy force of
deputy sheriffs were hurried into the
mountains, surrounding Williamson,
early today at the sound of rifle fir
ing. Careful seanh failed to reveal
the presence of the riflemen. There
' were no casualties, but there were
widely circulated rumors that bullet-;
1 had fallen In one section of the cit
Intense excitement provalled for u
time, hut the presence of Colonel Her
man Hall and a company of the 19th
United States Infantl served to calm
the fear of those who professed to
j believe that an attempt would bo
made to rescue the 21 men on trial
here arrested tor the Sdatewan shoot-
lng.
The excitement had died down and
! the details of soldiers mud-besput-tcred
and weary, had returned to their
quarters here when Judge R, D Itul
ley opened the fourth day of the trial.
In the courthouse were 200 addi
tional veniremen ready for e.xomlna
tlon Eighteen tentative jurymen who
had spent yesterday In tho court house
In chargv of a deputy sheriff without
permission to eco relatives or friends,
were in the Jury box. Two of them.
H. K. Cantrel!, a school tea her of

hc was related to on of the defend
ants, and Barley J Davis, a William
son merchant, because of his kinship
with a former defendant, against
whom the Indictment is not to be
pressed.
The 21 men, wlio are facmu prose

in the Btatewan fight were brighter
and more cheerful than at any time

over 1000 for a slne ywr, were
brought to the attention of the Save

"Eife was taken." the reports say,
"for the most trivial reason In a large
number of eases-
"A man distressed because his new
clothes were unsn tlsfactory.
A woman peeved because her hus

she refused to vote the Democratic

suicides among women may be due
to the fact that so many have recent

Unhappy marriage relations and pres
ent living conditions also contribute
largely to the situation.
The youngest suicide was 5 vpars
old and the oldest 103.
"Divorce figured prominently In
self-destruction last year, more than
100 persons kllllnu: themselves for this
reason. The great number of farm
ers who hae given way to despair
has been noticeable and also farmers
wives Possibly the many splendid boys
lost in tho war may have been the
cause

than the -100 soldiers who have de

from the war. Many also have been

MANY NOTABLE VICTIMS.
"Conditions brought about by the
enactment of the eighteenth amend

few suicides. Also the drug addict has
supplied a considerable number.
'This fearful and reckless destruc
tion of human life Is confined to no
particular class or locality. La9t year
in ihe I'nlted Slates there were seventy-five
presidents and managers of
large concerns, thirty-six men in ihe
millionaire class and twenty-three wo
men who became weary of life and fl
nally terminated their mortal exist

seemed to be Immune, but this past
year a dozen or more writers. Includ

make up the hst. The lawyers num- 1
