PittsbuiHh, Pa., August 22. The
miners employed in O-us Westmoreland
and Pennsylvania companies' mine at
Irwin station, Westmoreland county,
quit work yesterday afternoon and re
solved that they would not resume until
their demands for an advance wns coin-
led with. These mines give employ
mentto about 1,000 men. Last night a
force of from 300 to 400 miners organized
and marched to Spring Hill, a point
where engines on the Pennsylvania road
are coaled, and Induced the miners at tluit
place to quit work. , All the mines at the
Irwin district are now closed. Th
miners demand three cents per busliel of
seventy-el k pounds, their pay every two

Ccmiieband, Md., August 22. To
day the miners at Ocean mines consoli
dation company demanded the dischnge
of an objectionable person. The de
mand was refused and the men struck.
The company ordered the tools to be
taken out and closed the mines.
To-day drivers, who are mostly boys,
demanded of the Maryland coal com
pany an increase of wages from 1.75 to
?2, and gave the superintendent time to
hear from New York. The drivers say
If the demand Is not granted they will

Boranton, Pa., August 23. The
Delaware and Lackawanna railroad

Two Men Killed.
About half-past eight o'clock yester
day morning Henry Stout, the crossing
watchman for the Philadelphia and
Beading Railroad at Wallace street, no
ticed a man standing on the track ap
parently intoxicated. A Germantown
and Norristown passenger train was
backing out of the depot at the time and
the stranger did not see It, his back be
ing to the cars. Stout shouted and mo
tioned for him to get out of the way, but
the man paid no heed. Then a scene
occurred that horrified the spectators.
Stout sprang to the man's assistance, in
his bravery giving no heed to his own
danger, seized him and attempted to
drag him from the track, but the stran
ger grappled with him, and being the
larger and stronger of the two, held him
and both fell to the ground as the cars
reached them. There was a sickening
sound of crushing bones and the mutila
ted bodies were seen covered with blood.
The flagman had both legs cut off, and
the stranger, who It was afterward ascer
tained Is It. Link, of No. 0 Hunter St.,
had one arm severed from his body and
his right leg crushed almost its entire
length; his head was also badly injured.
They were picked up, placed In a wagon
and taken to the Pennsylvania Hospital.
They were so frightfully injured they
could not speak. They received every
attention, but Stout, the courageous flag
man, died at twenty-five minutes past
ten o'clock, and at eleven o'clock Link
expired. Stout, who was only twenty
seven years old, lived at 1830 Manor
street, and has been in the employ of
the railroad company for some time. He
was considered a very reliable and wor
thy man, and the manner of his death
shows his courage. Link'B name was
ascertained from a pawn ticket on his
person. He Is 48 years old. Phil. Korth
On Sunday evening the 19th inBt , Bill
Scroggs, a worthless fellow living near
Oak Hills, Kas., shot and instantly
killed Mr. J. Olyphant, an old and
prominent citizen. Three years ago
Scroggs eloped with and married a
daughter of Olyphant, and subsequently
abused her. She left him, returning to
her father's house, where she has since
lived. Sunday evening Scroggs asked
to see his wife, but was refused, when
he drew a pistol and shot Olyphant. The
assailant started to Oak Hills, but was
overtaken by a party of four men who
attempted to arrest him. Ho fired on
the party, a ball striking John Grogg,
killing him instantly. The murderer
then went to the residence of a justice
of the peace and surrendered himself.
The next day a mob of men went to
Waddell's where Scroggs was confined,
took him out among the hills and
An Awkward Position.
The wife of a ealoonlst on Glrard ave
nue, in the vicinity of the College, on
Sunday evening, tried to convert a flour
barrel into a seat. It however gave way
beneath her avoirdupois and she was
precipitated into the barrel, leaving her
head and heels alone exposed to view.
Her awkward position and cries for as
sistance attracted a sympathizing crowd.
It was with considerable difficulty that
she was rescued from her unpleasant
position. PhiVa. Korth American.
