The disagreement between the minera and mine owners of the Coeur d'Alene, over the adjustment of wages, culmi nated Monday in an attack upon the non-union workmen in which several were killed on both sides and consider able property destroyed. A dispatch from Wallace gives the following details of the encounter. The Gem and Frisco, non-union mines, were guarded by men behind barricades armed with Winches ters. Monday morning a miner from Gem started for Burke, and when oppo site the 1* rtsco mine he was tired upon, Soon the miners in the town gathered with arms and marched in a body to ward the Frisco mills. When scarcely within ritle range a volley from the mine greeted them. They scattered and a regular battle ensued. One miner and one non-union man were killed, and per haps six wounded during the engage ment. The miners in the meantime loaded a Union Pacitic car with 250 pounds of giant powder and sent it down the track toward the Frisco mine. This uttempt to destroy the mine failed and the min ers got upon the Hume and shut off the water and sent powder in packages down the water pipe into the mill. A fuse was put in the last package and sent down. In an instant a terrible ex plosion occnrred which shook the can yon for miles. The non-union men then surrendered, anti were marched to Min j ers' Union hall and guarded. No indig ! nities were offered after the surrender, ( and while the Hght was going on at the j Frisco the Gem guards suddenly began ! Gring volley after volley into the town of Gem, riddling the buildings with bul-1 ! lets. John Ward was wounded in the i arm and Gus Carlson, a union man, was killed. Attempts to recover Carlson's 1 body were met with a volley, and when ! the body was recovered, an hour nfter I wards, he was dead. At 8 j At 8 o'clock a truce occurred and the J I sheriff, district attorney and United i States marshals appearing on the scene ' peace negotiations were immediately set on foot and a truce declared and at 12 o'clock the mine force surrendered to the union men. ( In the afternoon about 300 miners ' from Gem, fifty of whom were armed j with rifles, marched down to Wallace, j They took with them their prisoners consisting of about 110 non-union men and five dead bodies, another man, James Hennessy, lately of Butte, Montana, being in a house at Gem shot through the breast, Upon arrival at Wallace the "scabs" were turned loose and the union men began to search for A. M. Esler, manager of the Frisco mine, against whom the union men have a special grudge. The terms on which the Gem miners and guards surrendered were that the twenty-seven Winchesters and a number of revolvers and 20,000 rounds of the ammunition should be placed in the hands of disinterested parties—two citizens and two conservative union men —and that the "scabs" should be shipped out of the country. The complete list of the dead and wounded, the result of the conflict at Gem, is : Dead—James Hennessy, Gus Carlson, John Starlich, Harry Cum mings, Ivery Bean. Wounded —F. C. Wilcox, L. L. Abbott, Samuel Carver, R. K. Adams, Charles Smith, N. T. Hal cron, Samuel Corkupp, Hugh Campbell, E. W. Putnam. John Vhiitney, Charles Peterson, S. C. Collins, Jno. Gaukepager, Geo. Pettibone. The loss by the explo sion in the Frisco mill wiil be 8125,000. The governor of Idaho decided to call on the president for assistance and sent a dispatch to that effect. He started the militia from Boise on a special train, but as the companies are very small it is not expected they will prove effective in preventing further trouble. In response to the governor's request the president ordered federal troops to be sent to the scene of the miners trouble in Idaho, In $ GO 00 it and General Schofield has ordered Gen-l erals Ruger and Merritt to send troops I there. Later dispatches state that Tuesday night passed without incident, the min ers resting upon their arms. The col ored troops ordered from Missoula, three companies of colored infantry, were in tercepted at Mullen be the blowing up of a railroad bridge at that place. The announcement was made that the Bun ker Hill and Sullivan mines were to sur render to the strikers at 3 o'clock Wed nesday afternoon and that if they did not surrender at that time a battle would begin. If these mines surrender the troops will be permitted to take posses sion of the Ooeur d'Alene country with out resistance from strikers. Five companies of the Fourteenth in fantry left Vancouver Wednesday morn ing by special train for the scene of the trouble. Two additional companies left Fort Sherman, making in all 700 United States troops due to arrive in the Coeur d'Alene country Wednesday evening All the Coeur d'Alene mines are re ported to be tilled with dynamite ready to create general destruction at a mo ment's notice. Wednesday's record from the Coeur d'Alene district is even more horrible than the preceding day and will mark the conduct of the strikers as brutal in the extreme. The report, which seems to be corroborated, is to the effect that upon the surrender of non-union miners they were escorted out of the country, and that when they reached Mission, in Fourth of July gulch, they were tired upon by the strikers, twelve or fifteen of their number killed, and many of them robbed of money and valuables. Among the number was Monohun. superintend ent of the Gem mine, whose body was terribly mangled. At Wnrdnernll news- j paper men are virtually prisoners and! are unable to semi dispatches. Report - ers at different points in the region con-j trolled by the strikers are intimidated to that extent that tlie highhanded and murderous occurrences there cannot be ! half told if told at all. Numbers of the i business men of Warilner suspected of i anti-union sentiments have been driven * out of town by the strikers anti are now in the hills where scores of non-union men are in hiding. Mine owners ami their representatives are in constant danger of their lives at Wallace and elsewhere. Shoshone county is now under mar tial law, troops are being massed at Wardner. and it is hoped they will he enabled to restore further hostilities. 1 KATA I. EX Tlir«« Minor * nt St. L.nui Srtf«ty Fbwi peace and prevent in ii |> Willi Srtf«ty Fbwi Independent : Miners and prospectors H* living in the Indian Creek district, four miles above St. Louis, were awakened late Sunday night by a terrific explosion. On investigating as to the cause the cab in occupied by three prospectors on the right hand fork of Indian creek, was found to have been blown to atoms. The men who had it were David Bar nett( Peter McI)onald and Daniel Wal ]ace Enough of them was found t< es tablish their identity and to show con clusively that all three had been killed. The men owned a prospect near their eabin, which was of the usual style occu occupied by McDonald. Burnett and Wallace used the other bunk. Between j pied by miners working their claims. It was built of heavy logs against the hill, j In it was two bunks. One of these was i j the heads of the two bunks was a space where the men kept their powder, and some distance up the wall was a shelf on which it was customary to place the light. It is not known whether the men used a coal oil lamp or a candle. If a lamp, the supposition is that it either exploded or was overturned. If a candle, it is thought it burned down und the hot tallow dripped over on the powder. In this space between the bunks and under the shelf for the light was a box of safety natural powder, twenty-five pounds. The force of the explosion was terrific. The roof of the cabin was lifted off and thrown forty feet. With it went the body of Wallace, who was found in the wreckage of the roof. The bodies of the two men were found in the derbis of the cabin, and so badly mutilated that it was difficult to believe the two masses of flesh had ever been humun beings. The sides of the house were knocked out and even the logs at the back ad joining the hillside were broken and splintered. It is believed the box of powder was unopened at the time of the explosion, as the men had just bought it. Some of the neighbors were inclined to think that lightning struck the cabin and ig nited the powder, though the men near est the scene say they do not remember of there having been any storm at the time of the explosion. McDonald had been prospecting in I Montana for eight years and was very | .well known. Little is known of the ther men All, so far as can be learned, I wpre unmarried . They had been occu pying the cabin since last fall. The Mineral Land Kill. A Washington special to the Miner gives an interview with Congressman Dixon in which he says : "There would have been no opposition at all to our mineral bill if we could have brought it up yesterday. I had obtained a promise from Mr. Sweet that he would make no | effort to press his minority report. Ev-j erytliing was favorable to the passage of ; our measure, but instead of considering ( this bill, which would have taken about i ten minutes to read and pass, other bills which provoked much discussion and contest were taken up and considered till the time was lost, which would have been better employed in passing bills to which there was but little opposition. It is rather annoying that we could not get consideration at this time, when the house is disposed to look with favor up on our measure, but we have not given j ! i i * up the fight yet. We have another sus pension day two weeks from next Mon day, and we will not relax our efforts in behalf of this important piece of legisla tion.'' Hold Hun»« Tlit«v«*. A Red Lodge dispatch of the 7th says: News reached here this afternoon that •P head of horses, belonging to the New ton Brothers and John Smith, stock men on the Crow reserve, 35 miles north, were driven off yesterday afternoon hy men. The loss was discovered in the evening, when Mr. Newton rode out to drive the animals into the corrul. The trail was easily followed. It led across Rock creek and headed towards the Heart mountains in Wyoming. The pur suers got within sight of the thieves yesterday evening, hut not within gun shot. Today 10 Crow Indians, under command of John Smith, took the trail and are in hot pursuit. Mr. Newton is guarding the ferry over Clark's Fork, to intercept the party if they attempt to cross at that point. Smith and his party are well mounted and armed, and if the thieves are overtaken their bodies will probably be left on the trail. Further j developments are awaited with intense I interest. It is thought the chances are ! good for recovering the stock, as there j j j ! are a number of mares in the lot with cults, which will prevent rapid traveling. KKI) LODGE NEWS.

The finding of big boulders of high grade carbonate ore in the water ditch which is being dug across the Jumbo property led to across cut being made along the line of the contact, and it has discovered a fine body of rich gray carbonate ore nine feet long and three feet wide which appears to be in place and solid. A shaft has been sunk to a depth of twelve feet and every indication goes to show that it is an ore shoot from the bowels of Mother Earth. Mr. Stewart, the foreman, and one of the best miners in the camp, is sure that it is permanent and that it goes down deep. In another place on the same contact, 250 feet away, they are running a tun nel and have found the same ore there indicating that the ore is an immense body. Work is being pushed with en ergy and it will not be long until they know pretty well what they have. The Cumberland Development company have an option on a controlling interest in this property which expires on Novem ber 1. and it looks now as though by that time they would prove it one of the big mines of Castle.

Adjti<l|f««l lii*rtii« Dinah Hunter, a colored woman who was formerly a resident of Livingston but who for the past ttve years has been residing at Great Falls and Helena, ar rived from the latter place Saturday evening and went to the home of Gus Lucas. She soon exhibited symptoms of insanity, laboring under the halluci nation that she was pursued by two men and a woman named Eva Clark, whom she insisted were attempting to kill her. She claimed that she left Helena with the intention of going to Townsend and taking the stage to White Sulphur Springs, but that upon arriving at Town send she discovered the parties who had designs upon her life riding on the top of the coaches, and overheard them say that when she stopped at that place they would beat ner to death.

Suit was begun in the district court Monday by Savage & Day, ns attorneys for John Brown and John H. Elder, ■ against the Vinnedge Mining compuny, j a corporation organized under the laws | of this state and owner of mining prop erty at Cooke. The complaint sets forth that plaintiffs are owners of the Chip munk quartz lotie mining.claim, located in the New World mining district in July, 1882, by Thomas M. Ackles, Henry VV. Snibley, John Walch. John C. Mc Carthy and John C. Rogers, title to which has since that date been regularly transferred to plaintiffs ; that in April, 1892, defendants made application in the land office at Bozeman for mineral pat ent of the Silver King quartz lode claim, which conflicted with a portion of the Chipmunk lode ; that on the 6th day of June, 1892, plaintiffs filed an adverse claim in the land office at Bozeman to protect their title to the ground claimed aa the Chipmunk lode. The action is now brought in the district court to ob tain a decree that defendants have no estate, interest or lawful claim to any of the ground claimed as the Chipmunk lode, and owned by suid plaintiffs. rimr||«<l With Forgery. Jacob Fleshman, 17 years of age, is confined in the county jail to await ac tion of the district court upon a charge of forgery. Judging from the record of the pust two weeks Young Fleshman had entered upon a career of eripie that would have marked him as a shrewd and bold crook had it not been nipped by his arrest last week. Fleshman had been residing with .losiah Gosnell, a ranchman of the upper Yellowstone. His first offense dates from July 2, when ( nagerie. Having been a spectator of the gorgeous street parade and becoming possessed of a desire to view the interior j of the large tent with its two-ring circus performance, but not ixissessing the money to purchase the necessary ticket 1 of admission he resorted to his first for gery to make a raise. Knowing that Mr. ! Gosnell was a regular customer of Mayne ! & Burdick he drew an order «or 83, to with other youths of that locality he , came to Livingston to witness the spec tacular exhibition of King Solomon's' _ , , . , * , , i Temple and Robinsons matchless me which he attached the name of Mr. Gos nell and secured the coveted funds. His success in this first step in crime led to a bolder attempt. Learning that George lowing ,,av u charge of forgery was pre ferml against him, preliminary exami Husted of this city was owing Mr. Gos nell about 850 lie came to Livingston on Friday of lust week and presented an order for the money. He was informed by Mr. Husted that the money would he left at the store of Mayne & Burdick, where Mr. Gosnell could call und get it. Mr. Husted later left the money as prom ised, but said nothing about Young Flesbman having called upon him for the money. During the afternoon Flesbman uppeured at the store of Mayne & Burdick with an order for 830, purporting to come from Mr. Husted,and instructing them to hold out the 83 pre viously paid Fleshman. The order was. simply signed George H„ but the firm having no suspicion of Young Fleshman disregarded this irregularity, and the 827 was paid upon the order. The money was afterward spent by Flesbman in purchasing clothing and a watch, after which he went to the home of Mr. Gos n el), cached the clothing and retired for j the night. Mr. Husted learning of the f or ged order, informed Messrs. Mayne & Burdick, and they at once dispatched a [ messenger to the Gosnell ranch. Flesh man was awakened and confronted by th e messenger when he made a full con f e8 sion of the whole matter. The loi nation was held before Magistrate Lep ley and Flesbman was held in the sum of 81000 to the district court. County Attorney Joy has filed an information in the district court charging the crime of forgery. W'. H. Poormnn has been ap pointed to defend, and Fleshman will today t*nter his plea.
