The strike on the Gould system re
suated 0iturday last In a bloody battle
between the strikers and the civil
mthorities at Forth Worth, Tex., in
which several persons on both sides
were killed and others wounded. A
freight train left the depot at Fort
Worth under the protection of the
Sheriff and a posse. When it got to

stopped as was customary. After the
train had stopped it was noticed that
evmrai men were congregated on the
''t1ck in front of the train. The corn.
mander of the posse advanced to-ward
the men and asked them why they
impeded the progress of the traino to
which they replied that they were not
armed and had no intention of lnt'r
fering with the road. As the officers
were returning to the train they
noticed several men sitting on the grass
near the track. The posse advanced
and when it had reached a aitch atong.
side the track commanded "hands up"
'which command was obeyed but in a
way not calculated on as when their
hands went up it was discovered that
they held Winchester rifles which
poured forth a deadly fire and which
wav returned by the posse with fatal
eibet. At Palestine, Texas the strikers
were palid ofl, but did not signify their
intention of returning to work.
