The miners' strike at Rich Hill has been declared off and most of the men have gone back to work: This is good news to every one. Gover nor Dockery made a special trip to Rich Hill last of the week to bring about this result, and he- is no doubt highly gratified at its termina tion. Sheriff Smith stayed on the ground constantly, and to his excel- ent judgment and dignified, conser vative course is due largely the absense of destructive rioting which so often happens on occasions of this kind. Whllelie enforced every pro cess of law that was placed in his hands, he treated all parties consid erately and held the situation fimlyTjn in band. The final results were reached through the state arbitra tion board which met there n Mon day. ' . Mrs. Showalter. wife of Ivi Sho walter, departed this life Monday morning. Hhe had been a great suf ferer for several months with some thing liks cuncer of the fare. The funeral took place at the family resi dence at 10 o'clock Tuesday morn ing conducted by Rev. MeGee, pastor of the ('. P. church. The deceas.il was a most estimable lady, a true christian, a devoted wife and mot her and leaves a large circle of friends who deeply regret her demise and ex teud sincerest sympathy to the be reaved family. Wm. Rogers and R. C. Hatcher, coal miners or Rich Hill, were locked jnjail .Monday morning. The for mer is charged with assaulting Pete Harney, a deputy sheriff, nnd the latter with assaulting Sheriff Smith, during the riot at Rich Hill Wednes day evening of last week. Sheriff Smith was struck on the head with a sling shot or rock and painfully in jured while assisting to liberate one of his deputies whom a crowd of tners had down and were beatimr in a shameful manner. Sheriff Smith was unarmed at the time and with the odds against him had but a poor show in defending himself.
