Spkiso Vallet, TBmJ May 21. The
pectacle of strikers refusing to permit
men to put out a Hre raging in the
works were many are to make a living,
knowing that such action means the
dest ruction of their only means of support
in this vicinity, has been the sensation
here for twety-four hours. And that, too,
in spite of the appeals of tbe
mine owners and the leader of
the strikers himself. They have
relented for a time; but no oue
knows for how long. The fire is raging
in mine No. 1 of the Spring Vulley com
pany, and as soon as the fact was known
the company asked the miners to allow
men to go to work extinguishing the
flames. A meeting was called and by a
close vote it was voted to not allow a man
down the shaft. The meeting wns about
to adjourn when Vice ' President James
VT. Murray, or the state Miners' organi
zation, arrived from the Cleveland con
Murray's Appeal Wns or Xo Avail.
Murray's home is in this city and his
nfluence with the men is great. As soou
as be learned of the situation and bow the
men voted he addressed them and advised
reconsideraton of the "vote. He snid
that by taking such action it was putting
club in the operator' hands by which
their cause would be defeated. He said
the miners should go to work and put out
the lire, nud that if they allowed the
flames to get much headway It would be a
yeifV liefore they could be worked, with a
pcssibility of utter destruction. When
Murtnv finished tbe miners adjourned
without reconsidering the vote, and the
French anarchists net tup a shout of '"let
lam burn," "Tear them down," etc., and
eft tiie uiee:ing iu a rush.
Mulcoiitcnts Have a Hat! Hrrord.
The miners are largely foreigners nnd
this element would listen to no reason,
though the P.ugliHU speaking workmen
were in favor of putting out the fire. They
were in the minority, however, and could
do nothing. They kept up their appeals
with creditable M-rsisteiice nnd at last the
foreigners gave in to a limittd extent, but
not until Superintendent Stone repeatedly
npjaied to tht-m. The probability that
the company would demand protection of
the state for men who would liuht the fire
also had 'omethiug to do with the chanite
of front. The "unreawiiiabl -s" are ail an-
arcl'ists ut.d several l.utnlretl of them
gathered on tbe hillside looking down
upon the doomed miafr for the purpose oi
not allowing a nrtu to go dowu to extin

KEKA. C.U., May '.I. The cloud which

Twenty-seven years ago Dicker's wife nnd

Decker could not prove that they were
