A few minutes before midnight Fri

and instantly killed by J. K. Streeter, i
a shoemaker. There were no wit
nesses to the tragedy, and it is difficult ’
to learn the cause of the deed.
Streeter claims that the marshal
came into his shop a few minutes be
fore the shooting and demanded that
he throw up his hands. Believing
that he was about to be robbed, Street
er claims, he grabbed a revolver which
lay at bis side, and fired. This story
is not given much credence by those
who were acquainted with Cook.
Marshal Cook was formerly a fore
man in the South Dark shops at Como.
Two years ago he was elected to the
office of eitv marshal, and on Tuesday
last he was re-elected. He was a man
nbout 45 years old and was a quiet and
well-liked official. Streeter has also
lived in Como for a number of years

The train load of 1,000 men des

on the Bth. Governor West had taken
steps to prevent their crossing the line
into the territory. He even secured
an injunction from .lodge Kiner

it was not served on the officers until
the train arrived in Ogden. A force
of police and militia kept the men in
the railroad yards. The Union Pacific
people refused to take the army east

It was not known Sunday night what
would be done with the army.
The industrial army still remained
in Ogden on Tuesday night. The
courts aud Governor West had ordered
the Southern Pacific to take them

unless paid for it. The 1,200 men
declare that they will walk east if nec

property. The assays from the ore
taken out, which is brittle and ruby
silver, give a value of 20,000 ounces to
the ton. The location of Kennedy's
mine was never recorded. Mr. Liven
good has named the property the Gold
en Needle. He will proceed to add
further developments and make some
shipments at an early date.
March showed an increased output
of stamp mill ore in Gilpiu county.
Every available cauip in Black Hawk
was employed. A home pool has se
cured a lease for a period of eighteen
months on what is known as the Dal
las company's mill, situate in the up
per portion of the Quartz Mill City,
which has a capacity of thirty-nine
stamps. These have been overhauled,
and yesterday twenty-nine stamps
wero started up on custom ore from
various mines. The mill has been
supplied with Gilpin county ore con
centrators. The remaining ten stamps
of the mill will he runniug this week.
The Empire Mill Company is putting
in a new eighty horse power boiler
and will add 25 more stamps to its
present capacity, which will give them
fifty stamps. The new Gilpin mill is
running and twenty-five stamps are
being added. At present writing
there are over live hundred stamps
running in the county, and by the
middle of May fully six hundred and
twenty-five stamps will be running.
It is understood that the Ibex Min
ing company of Leadville, which num
bers among its properties the famous
Little Johnnie, has in contemplation
an exhibition that will most effectually
discourage all the skepticism in re
gard to the possibilities of the Lead
ville region as a gold producer. The
exhibition is to be in the shape of u
solid pile of bricks whose aggregate
value will be in the neighborhood of
SIOO,OOO. The present daily output
of the belt is placed ut 500 ounces in
gold, the daily tonnage exceeding 250
tons. The Little Ella mine is cited us
an instance of the opportunities in
gold development which were over
looked previous to the recent revival
in gold mining in this community.
Before the present management ob
tained control the mine was operated
by a lot of local capitalists, who sank
$100,oH) in the vain endeavor to take
out lead and silver enough to make the
venture a profitable one, and failing in
this practically abandoned the mine.
The present management repros
pected the property and obtained
evidences that it is rich in two and
three ounce gold.
The officers of the Kico Aspen Min
ing Uompany, operating in the famous
Kico district, have announced the reg
ular dividend for March. The amount
is $25,000 at the rate of 2J cents per
share of the capital stock, or 30 |>er
cent, per annum on the par value of
the company's paper. Tho report
from the manager of the mines sub
mitted to the directors, states that
ore bodies now in sight will warrant
dividends for a year at the March
rate without further development.
The second class ore has so risen in
value that the entire output of the
mines is now ranked as first-class ma
terial. The output, about fifty cars
per month, is treated at the Omaha-
Grant smelter. The average value is
S6O dollars in gold and 250 ounces oi
silver to the ton. the gold increasing
ns depth is gained in tho workings.
Tho Star vein is now a producer. First
of next month the company will com
mence sinking for the second contact,
which, according to expert reports,
should be reached at from 100 to 200
feet below the present workings. The
second contact runs throng): an area of
700 acres. With an increase in gold
as compared with the upper contact
this vast body of ore when blocked for
shipment, gives a bint of the probable
wealth of the Rico-Aspen group.
The Hillsborough, New Mexico,
Aihocnte says: “The big strike on the
Richmond &00 foot level is breaking
all previous records in that remarkable
mine. Twelve ounce gold ore in car
loU is something worth talking about.
There are mighty few camps on this
continent that show anything better.”

Aa the result of the striking of many
thouaand coke workers there is a
reign of terror in the Connelsville dis
trict in Pennsylvania. The strike
took effect on the second and rioting
commenced almost immediately. Most
of the strikers are foreigners of the
more ignorant class who have no re
gard whatever for law or the rights of
Dispatches from Uniontown on the
It would take columns to tell in de
tail the exciting events of to-day in
the Connelsville region. At least
nine lives have been sacrificed during
the past twelve hours. Unless the
strong arm of the military interferes
the dead will be counted by scores by
The rioting began early this morn
ing, but the climax was not reached
until 3 o’clock this afternoon when n
body of strikers numbering several
hundred marched on the Davidson
works of the 11. C. Frick Coke Com
pany at Connelsville, Fayette county,
where men were working. When the
strikers approached they were ordered
to stop. They came on and tried to
get at the men at the ovens. The
deputies fired; the strikers returned
the fire and charged, driving tbe depu
ties and men from the plant.
J. H. Davidson, the ehief engineer
was struck on the head by a stone and
then beaten to death. Hiß body was
thrown into an oven and an attempt
made to burn it. Before this was ac
complished the deputies returned with
reinforcements and drove the men
away. They overtook the strikers
half a mile from Davidson and opened
fire on them. The strikers fired in re
turn, but ran on. Four strikers fell,
two being killed and two others fatally
All of the efforts of the deputies
and more level headed citixens were
required to prevent the lynching of
eleven strikers who were taken to Con
nelsville. The law-abiding element
had their way and at 8 o’clock a special
train arrived with sixty-four of the
mob who killed Paddock.
At Alverton the coke drawers at the
Denny coke plant were attacked by a
riotous mob of sixty Hungarian wo
men, armed with revolvers, clubs and
pokers. The men hastily retreated
but were followed by the triumphant
mob. Men were knocked down and
dinner buckets and coke forks were
thrown into the ovens.
A similar Beene was enaoted at the
Mayfield and Donnelly plants on the
Mount Pleasant branch. Here one
Hungarian was killed.
Strikers Quieting Down.
A later dispatch from Uniontown
Yesterday's tragic events in the coal
regions appear to have had a sobering
effect on the strikers, and it is hardly
probable that there will be a repetition
of such bloody work. With the dis
covery of tbe bodies of eight Hungar
ian strikers in the woods near Dawson
the deaths are increased to ten, with
many more wounded. The eight dead
strikers found were undoubtedly
killed bylthe pursuing party after tho
Paddock murderers, and at least 11 in
all have or will pay the highest pen
alty for the brutal crime without trial
by jury. No definite information as
to the cause of tbe death of the eight
men has been obtained up to this
The general feeling among the more
intelligent strikers is that they cannot
win against such sentiment stirred up
against them by yesterday’s trouble,
together with the unpropitious time
for a strike. The foreign element,
however, are nothing daunted and fur
ther bloodshed will be caused by
them. As a consequenoe of the gen
eral feeling of discouragement the big
raid planned for to-day will not occur.
Warrants are out for all the officers
of the strikers’ organixation, but only
Davis and Secretary Darby have been
arrested- Since the killing of Pad
dock company officials are keeping
very close and never venture out un
less strongly guarded. They fear an
attempt on their lives by the Hun
Fire in the Horn Silver Mine.
A special from ’Frisco, Utah, on
the sth, says: The new concentrating
plant and hoisting works on the Horn
Silver mine have been totally de
stroyed by fire. The mill made its
first run April 1, but was not in opera
tion when the fire broke out. The fire
is supposed to be of incendiary origin.
The timbering of the shaft is on fire
and the ground is supposed to be caved
in for a distance of 200 feet. Men have
been sent through the air shaft but are
unable to get near the main shaft on
account of the smoke. All miners
were hoisted safely exeepting six, who
were compelled to climb the ladders
through the air shaft from the 700 foot
level. The loss is estimated at SIOO,-
[K)O. Nothing is known as to the
amount of insuranee carried.
The Troops Recalled.
Darlington and Florenoe are no
longer in insurrection and on the 6th
the state troops evacuated those local
ities. The governor issued a procla
mation declaring that in the counties
of Darlington and Florenoe there is no
longer any insurrection, and the civil
itAtua is hereby restored. Governor
Tillman is already beginning to re-or
