Three of the Former and Two of th« Latter Killed in the Engagement. General Curnes Also Reporlcil to llare Loit Four SKea in Skirmish—Miners Flually Surrender. KNOXVILLE, Aug. 20.—In a battle be tween soldiers and miners near Coal Creek ju.-t ivfter daylight three of the former aivl two of the latter were killed. A nnmlifT on both sides were also in jured. The troops engaged in the fight were i~5 volunteers from Knoxville and about l(A) oItlie -s of the S^c-ontl regi ment. The miners were anu.uc-hed in the mountains aud the military were shot down without warning. A SKIRMISH. Reported That General CtroM I.oat Four Men in a Fight Near Clinton. CLINTON, Tenn., Aug. ~0.—General Ccrnes, at the head of the Chattanooga complement, reached here at 8 o'clock p. m. He was warned that dynamite had been placed on the track and he disem barked his men, formed them into columns and starlitl on the march to Coal Creek. The night was dark and the road wonnd through heavy timber. Five miles east of Clinton the advance skirmishers of General Carnes' forces heard voices in the timber, and challeng ing, were answered with a volley which seemed to bo all around them. No one was hit and the skirmish line fell back on the main body, which was now rap idly advancing. The firing increased, but the militiamen stood their ground like veterans. In Tennessee mines the miners were in full retreat, carrying with them several wounded. Four of their dead were left in the underbrush. General Carnes' casualties amounted- to four dead and six wounded. ALMOST A DEAD MAN. A Leader of tlie Miners Saves His Neck by Turning States Evidence. COAL CREEK, Tenn., Aug. 21.—A party of citizens through strategy se cured the notorious agitator, Bud Lind say, who has been a prisoner here for the past two days, from his guards and condncted him up the valley toward JBnceviile, a few miles south of this place, for the purpose of lynching him. They were fully determined and would undoubtedly have carried out their pur pose but for the pitiable pleadings of Lindsay and his solemn promise to go with the troops and point out every man in the mountains who was implicated in the late miners' troubles. His life was spared on this condition. He was brought to Coal Creek and will be used to identify outlaws. He is a deputy United States marshal, CHARGED WITH SPYING. State Commissioner of I^bor Ford Ar rested at Knoxville. KNOXVILLE. Aug. 21.—The arrest of Commissioner of Labor Ford by Gen eral Carnes has produced a genuine sen sation. He is also inspector of mines— one of the most important offices in the state. He is a shoemaker by trade and knows positively nothing about mine engineering, and got his appointment from the governor as a recognition of organized labor. Ford came here four years ago from New York and was for two years a foreman in a Knoxville fac tory. He has a good tongue and soon became a leader among the workmen, and as an agitator was a success. The governor appointed him over the pro test of all the coal companies who were required by law to keep their mines in safe conditions under heavy penalties. When the trouble with the miners came came up last summer he took a promi nent position on the side of the dissatis fied miners. He is under arrest as a spy. On his person was found a number of telegrams and letters proving that he had played the part of a spy on the pres ent militia movement. He would under false pretense get valuable information regarding the intention of the govern or and military movements and then telegraph the miners. MANY DEAD MINERS. Fifteen Bod te "Fonnd in the Vicinity 9t Coal Creek. COAL CKKEK, Tenn.. Aug. 22.—The troops have returned from Briceville., They met with very little resistance. A negro desperado and miner sympathizer Who had sworn to kill the first soldier wham he met, offered resistance and was shot dead, a dozen or more bullets piercing him through. As the train came to a standstill there was a shot fired from the window of a store. No one was seen inside, but Colonel Seiver immediately returned the fire with his revolver, the bullet passing through a pane of the window. About 125 miners ffgre taken prisoners and brought back (0 this place, and thoy are now under a strong guard. Troops who went to Briceville were in com mand of General Carnes, instead of Sevier. A miner has just been cap tured in the vicinity wearing a lieuten ant's full uniform and sword. Where he obtained them is a mystery. A full piriform was also found jn the mimnr jajns late in the afternoon. The four dead men who fought for the state fell in two places. Walt Hall and Given were killed in the skirmish which followed the ambush on Major Carpenter's men Waterman and Smitl} fell in Fort Anderson in the first battle with the miners—the firnt by the preina fc'ire explosion of the howitzer and the second by a bullet from the miners. Fifteen dead miners have been found and there are probably more lying around in the woods. Boyd Declines LEADERS WILL MEET. Beads of the Various Railroad Or|ulUr tlom Called to Buffalo. BUFFALO, Aug. 2a.—For ten days Grand Master Sweeney, of the switch men's order, has been in this city seek ing to encourage and planning for the yrelfare of the men, about 5,000 in num ber in number, who were formerly the movers of freight traffic in the various railroad yards hereabouts. He has seen the companies secure new forces, and he has witnessed the almost entire restora tion of the conditions as they were be fore his followers quit work. He has now asked the heads of all the other la bor organizations allied with the switch men in railroad work to meet him here. Already Mr. Sargent is here and the others are expected soon. Mr. Sweeney will lay the circumstances of the recent switchmen's strike in this city before his colleagues with the purpose, it is fair to presume, of securing, if he can, the con sent to a strike of the men represented by each of the executive heads who will sit in conference with Mr. Sweeney. That the switchmen's leader would be able to influence the firemen to strike was a hope which, if entertained by Mr. Sweeney, was promptly set at rest by Mr. Sargent's statement that he would never consent to the withdrawal of his men from their occupations unless joined by the members of other railway organizations. With this position as an early precedent in the conference situa tion of the leaders it is not an unfair assumption that other executive heads will take the same position. If this i shall prove to be true, then all must go out or none will quit. RUNNING SMOOTHLY. The Grain and Flour Blockade at Buffalo Being Cleared Up. BUFFALO, Aug. 23.—Everything is running smoothly at the Central elevat ors, the only interruption being caused by the breaking of car hauling machin ery. In all 350,000 bushels have been taken out and sent on its way East dur ing the past twenty-four hours. The Lehigh Valley company have several crews at work and the tracks on the Tiff farm are being cleared up. Work in the Lehigh Valley flour houses is go ing on although there is some delay in getting empty cars. The Lake Shore looks lovely and the yards are filled with empty and loaded cars mixed pro miscuously, plainly showing the ab sence of the care takers. The Lake Shore has three engines at work and are doing considerable work, but the non union men do not seem able to handle the freight as fast as it comes in. MUST PAY TOLLS. A Retaliatory Proclamation Against Can ada Issued. WASHINGTON, Aug. 21.—The presi dent has issued a proclamation directing that from and after Sept. 1, 1892, until further notice a toll of 20 cents per ton be levied, collectt4 and paid on all freight, of whatever kind or descrip tion, passing through the St. Mary's Falls canal in transit to any port of the Dominion of Canada, whether carried in vessels of the United States or of other nations and, to that extent, sus pending from and after said date the right of free passage through St. Mary's Falls canal of any and all cargoes or portions of cargoes, to transmit to Ca nadian ports. Caused Surprise Over the Line. OTTAAVA, Aug. 21.—President Harri son's proclamation against Canada is the sole topic of conversation here. The move was entirely tmexpected and will likely necessitate the early meeting of the cabinet. Will Canada back doAvn? This is the question every one is asking at the hotels, on the street and at the clubs. Although no official opinion can be learned, owing to the absence of the various ministers from the city, there is a general impression that the Dominion government having taken a fling by de clining to abolish the rebate of canal tolls until the end of the season will not humiliate itself by a complete back down. DENOUNCE THE PRESIDENT. Canadians Bitter Against the Proclama tion of the President.". TORONTO, Aug. 25}.—The press of Canada is bitter in its denunciation of the proclamation of the president of the United States, issued late Saturday, im posing a toll on vessels passing through the Sault Ste. Marie canal.
