More Bloodshed at Our
Terrible Treatment of Non-Union Id
by the Miners.
Troops of Soldiers Arc Being Held Near
the Scene of the Trouble Until
Re-Enforcements Arrive.
Special to The Morning Call.
Waepser, Idaho, July 13.— The negro
troops Irom Fort Missoula were sidetracked
at Mullan, 18 miles from here. The track
and bridge are torn up, and nobody is left in
Mullan but women, children and one old

canyons if they do. The miners will not

Twelve Men Killed and Many Wounded
by the Desperate Miners.
Spokane, July 13— Tho blackest feature
pf this direful conflict in Idaho was the
tragedy enacted at the old mission on the
Coeur d'Alene River and in Fourth of July
Canyon. After driving many of the fugi
tive non-union men into the canyon, the
desperate and impassioned strikers followed
them up and shot them down like deer.
Among those shot down was Foreman
Monaghan of the Gem mine, who was
coming out with his family. The family
was spared, but Monaghan was run into a
bush and shot through the back. He was
picked up this morning and taken back to
the mines, where it is thought lie will die.
It is reported that 12 bodies have already
been recovered in Fourth of July Canyon.
The non-union men had been entirely dis
armed and were at tha mercy of their pur
The boat that came down the river to-day
picked up 20 more of the fugitives, who had
taken to the river and brush. They tell
tales of frightful cruelty. Some of them
were beaten with revolvers, and many were
robbed of all their valuables.
An Eye-Witness Gives Another Version
of the — "allien Slaughter.
Spokane, July 13.— E. S. Kinney, book
keeper for the Gem mine, near Wallace, ar
rived in Spokane to-day. He was present
at the O'd Mission when the mob charged
on tbe non-union refugees and saw the
whole affair from the window of his hotel.
Kinney had been ordered out of the coun
try by the strikers and was helping some
of his former employes to rench Spokane.
ln all there were 132 men from different
mines. They had been entirely disarmed
and were waiting for the boar, which was
Just at dusk last evening a squad of eight
armed men came charging down tne rail
road track yelling and firing rifles. The
refugees scattered in different directions
and ran for the river, mountains and
gulches, their pursuers following them up,
shooting and robbing them.
Most of the fugitives were driven down
the Fourth of July Canyon, but a number
made for the brush along the river bank
and swam the river. When Kinney left it
was known that two of the non-union men
had been slain. George Robinson, who had
been working in the Frisco mine, and a
Swede whose name was unknown.
The boat started down the river in the
darkness and was bailed again and again
by fuEit:vf>= who had escaped the fury of
the mob and bad concealed themselves in
the bushes.
"In all we picked up eight or ten of these
miserable wretches," said Kinney. "Some
were swimming in the water and others
had been lying in the bushes. All were
wet, cold and perishing from hunger, fright
and exposure. After swimming the river
they had waited for three hours before the
boat came along.
"It was the most pitiable sight I have ever
witnessed. Cue man was insane from
fright. When the boat would run her nose
in toward shore the victims were so eager
to get aboard that they would not wait for a
small boat, but would make off and swim to
a place of security. Some of these men are
now here and others were left in'oeir
d'Alene City. Four or five of them who
can talk English report that they were
robbed of their watches and money, in sums
ranging from SlO to £40."
F. C. Lorring, who came out on the same
boat, helped to pick up a refugee and talked
with a number of them. When Henry Mad
ton was picked up he was crazy from tear.
He reports that he was robbed of $50 and a
watch. He was in the water for three
hours. Frank Lauffer reports that he was
robbed of S2B, Hugh Cameron of 832, John
Fuller SlO and George Loman $20.
When these men were running across the
meadow they saw one of their companions,
a man named Thompson, fail as if shot, and
thai was the last they saw of him. Both
Messrs. Kinney and Lorring are of the be
lief that the mob never will stop now until
they kill every man not a member of the
union they lay eyes on. They doubt if
many of those driven into tbe wilderness
and the Fourth of July Canyon wid ever
emerge alive.
Three Trains of Troops Are Sidetracked
at Cataldo, Idaho.
Catai.tk), Idaho, July 13.— Three trains
of troops arrived here last niirht and were
sidetracked all night. Colonel Carlin was
awaiting information.
Sheriff Cunningham wired that if the
troops were broueht in before the Bunker
Hill and Sullivan scabs cot out a collision
would follow, and not a blue coat would be
left to tell the tale.
The troops camped here during the night.
Tbey comprise Companies I). F, ll and A
of the Fourth Infantry from Fort Sherman,
and Companies N of Moscow, Mof Vollmer.

D of Weiser.
The tegulars number ISO men; the militia
182 men; tins total of 332 men are awaiting
orders to take possession of the wild can

Sheriff Cunningham arrived here Sunday
nt 1 o'clock on the train carrying scabs.
To-day on entering the caboose occupied by
the commanding officer, he whs met by
Colonel Carlin and Inspector-General Curry,
and the latter read the decree of Governor
Willey, declaring Shoshone County under
martial law.
Colonel Carlin then Interrogated the
Sheriff as to the rendition of affairs.
"1 am satisfied." said the Sheriff, "that
you will meet with no resistance from the
miners since the Bunker Hill and Sullivan
scabs have left."
"I am satisfied," replied the colonel,
"that I will m«et with resistance, and 1
shall not proceed further without a larger
The result of the conference was that
Sheriff Cunningham agreed to precede the
regulars to tho scene and advise colonel
Just preceding the first train was throe
flat cars well fortified. They contain rail
road ties, built on the bulkhead, behind
which the troops can lie and tire.
Colonel Carlin appreciated the gravity of
the situation when Cunningham Informed
him that 2000 armed men were stationed
where every approach to the camp could
be guarded. The troops may move to
night, but it Is doubtful.

the command of Colonel Carlin, took the
train early this morning at Harrison, on
Lake Coaur d'Alene, and ran up to Cataldo,
within 20 miles of Wardner.
Pending the arrival of re-enforcements It
was thought best to go into caiup there for
the time being. Colonel Carliu declared
that he would not taKe that light command
into the midst of COO armed and desperate
men righting from ambush.
He boarded an engine, however, and
went in advance himself. At Wardner he
received assurances from the strikers that
they would lay down their arms and dis
band if the non-union men still in the coun
try were driven out. The colonel, alter
consulting with the sheriff, authorized that
official to declare martial law.
Meanwhile, the colored troops from Mis
soula wero coming iv from the east. .At
Mullan. 20 miles east of Wardner, they en
countered two or three wrecked bridges
that had been blown up by the strikers.
The soldiers went into camp near Mullan.
and after eating breakfast and waiting a
few ho art, the commanding officer received
orders to return to Missoula. What the
purpose of this may be no one can tell,
neither dues auy one know where the
troops now are.
Bridge* Blown Up to I'r-veiit the Arrival

Wallace, Idaho, July 13.— The night
passed without incident hero. The miners
are resting on their arms.
The colored troops arrived at Mullan at
2 o'clock this morning. They are still at
Mullan. It Is feared if they come to Wal

will be blown up. An effort is now being
made to held the troops at Mullan to avoid
a disaster.
All the mills of the mines where non
union labor had beeu employed have been
charged with magazines and a fuse attached
since yesterday. At a signal it is said all
will be blown up. This, however, is said to
be done only in the event of troops arriving
on the scene.
The bridge was blown up to-day at Mul

General Curtis. They will not move until
re-enforcements arrive.
Mr. Peybnrn gave fuller particulars of
the massacre in the Fourth ol July Canyon.
Be said that this morning 12 bodies were
picked up in the canyon. They were rid

unionists were wounded, but they were
carried away by their comrades. To-day
200 more son-union men were sent out of

members of the Miners* Union, who left the
train when it was a few miles out of town.

The Union Miners Cut the Property In

Wabdkkb, Idaho, July 13.— The strikers
have surrendered the Bunker BUI and Sul
livan mill and have stopped carrying guns
in sight.
Colonel Carlin has declared martial law
and is waiting with three tram loads of
troops at Cataldo, 12 miles west of here,
for re-enforcements. lie will be joined at
once by the forces at Fort CfIMT d'Alene,
Fort Vancouver and Fort McKeogh, Dakota.
Carlin will not enter the canyon bristling
with Winchesters without a large force. To
come with the present force would be sui
cidal. The Missoula negro troops are side
tracked at Mullen. The track is torn up
and the bridges burned.
One thousand armed miners from Mon
tana are reported coming to the aid of their
lighting brethren here.
Sheriff Cunningham is doing good service
as far as he Is able. He is greatly handi
capped by not being able to secure a posse.
Altogether the situation is very serious aud

The union men have smelled blood aud

and being bathed in blood. 'ihe train
lhat was used in the exodus of Bunker Hill
and Sullivan miners pulled out to-day at
2:30 P. m. 'i ho train consisted of 4") boxcars
and two coaches. At Cainldo, 12 miles down
the track, three trains of troops «em
met. The troops had got to Waidner in

leu boxcars were tilled with workmen a..d
tlie coaches were Used by the women and
Children ot the banished workmen. A tret
mittee of strikers, Sheriff Cunningham'
and a few deputies accompanied tin- party.
Every freiuhtcar of tbe Union Pacific was
also sent out, as such property was thought
to lie in dinger. Fully 300 men left on the.
train. A few were found who said they
were glad to escape and Would never return.
An Immense cordon of union men sur
rounded the Union Paclfio station and train.
All the guns were laid aside. Everything was
quiet and orderly. Befoie "the train

three deputies to lake cbaigo of

down past the big mill, where the? day be
fore the bank was lined with armed men

every stump, one| or two men were seen
armed. The mill had been surrendered

Wakdnek, July 13.— A visit to the mill
confirmed the fears concerning the danger
of the structure. Under the ci ushers
and jigs had been placed 50 boxes
of dynamite weighing M pounds
each, and around the dynamite were
placed 20 barrels of kerosene oil. Bad a
single istv move been made by the miners
a match would have been applied to the
mill and the concentrator would have been
in ruins.
Manager Clement has again taken charge
of the property. In an interview to-day he
said: "The threats of destruction of the
mill were held over DM and I gave in."
"When the troops move will you nut in
non-union labor again and start up?" was
"I can't say just now."
"Will the Mine-owners' Association in
view of recent trouble and exhibition 01
violence on the part of the unions give in?"
"So, sir; we shall continue to fight.

"I can't tell, but shall be surprised at
nothing." "'
miner to-night is quiet as a tomb. The
effect of martial law is not yet felt, as
Colonel Carliu and his troops have not yet
arrived hero to enforc. it. The saloons
are generally closed, by advice of Sheriff
Cunningham and President O'Brien. The
people breathe easier owing to the nearness
of Colonel Carlin and the tnMMML It may
''■! result iii carnage that will be W»rfe
in many respects than the Indian war. The
strikers k every gulch in Cceur d'Alenes
ami every rock to hide behind and take a
■hot at a foe. f-1
Camps are located on every peak sur
rounding Wardner, and thoroughly pro
visioned miners could not be dislodged lira
month by til the regulars and militia in the
Northwest If they determine to resist. They
are as thoroughly organized and disciplined
as the forces Carlin li bringing In. They
are i ugbh equipped with guns and ■'-_-
munition. The situation ts formidable.
Carlin's condition is easy to understand,
Trouble would suiely follow If tins
negro troops are brought In. These
troops from Purl Missoula are now
sidetracked at Italian. Tim miners will
draw a color line and fine bead on the Afri
can warriors, and Southern outrages will
be discounted here. There is no possible
show to repair the track torn up. If the
negroes start to march down one will drop
at every crosstie.
None of the central executive committee
of the union are to be found this afternoon?
It is said to be holding a secret conference,
C' oak-ring the matter of trooos. Sheriff
Cunningham does not believe the unions
will resist tn* troops. The union men give
evasive answers to questions on the subject.
It is thought they are not decided. A col
lision may yet be avoided.
No Official Newt of Their Movements lie
ceived by — eiierwl Ituger.
General Thomas H. Kuaer, commanding
the Division of the Pacific, when semi last
evening, said he had as yet received no
official dispatches from the Coeur d'Aleno
country. He had directed troops from the

The terrified spectators who witnessed the

The Mlllmen lleforn the Committee of
PITTBBU-W, July 13.— The investigation
into the troubles at the Carnegie works at
Homestead by tho Congressional commit
tees was continued this morning with the
further examination of Prick. He de
tailed the arrangements with the Pinker
tons to furnish guards for the Homestead
property. Ho said the arms were con
signed to tho Union Supply Company,
who delivered them to Captain Rodgers
of the IMnkeiton force. Frick was not
snre. but supposed he had something to do
witn Inrnish'ng the arms. He could not
be brought to answer more definitely. He
believed the Ftakertau advised that arms
would be needed, but arms were not stipu
lated in the employment of the guards.
Frick said tho wages paid at Homestead
were higher tnan at any other place.
Chairman Hoatner of the committee de
clared the scale of wages paid, as cxi. lamed
by Frick, wa. the highest wages he ever
heard of.
Captain Rodgers was then called, He told
of the trip to 80-MOte .'. accompanied by
a Deputy Sheriff, who went in mi < -idl
capacity. He then detailed the story of the
fight at Homestead, and said the strikers
fired first.
Sheriff McCleary testified thai the Carne
gie Company notified hun one week before
the men went out that tnere would be trou

men to Homestead and wanted them depu

thor 7. Colonel Gray to deputize the Pink

day of the trouble, because it was useless.
Deputy Sheriff Cluscy then took the stand
and told is story of bow the deputies had
b.en driven out by the strikers.
President Weihe was Ibe first witness on
the side of labor. He reviewed the sliding
scale and the failure to reach an agreement

had been prep in most departments,
and the men objected because they did not

In reply to Judge Taylor, as to
why the men thought they had a
ri.ht to take possession of * the mill,
Weihe said there may be some who think
so, but they are not so taught in the asso

ment and said that there seemed to be some
queer ideas of the rights of property among
tbe workingmen.
Wei be said they hadn't offered to arbi

He could not «ay whether or not the asso

people. The men were instructed to use

instructed to keep any one out of the
mill. Witness repeated the story of
the battle and of the efforts to prevent
firing by the crowd on the shore. His
wages were 5144 per month, working eight
hours, under the old scale. Replying to a
question as to why the laboring men hate
the Pinkertons, be said the chief objection
to them was that they feared they would
bring in non-union Men.
William Roberta, ex-vice-oreaidont of the
Amalgamated Association, said there was a
gigantic conspiracy somewhere, abetted by
legislation. His idea was that after the
company based the wages on tho price of bil

An Appropriation for the Survey of the
San Francisco Harbor.
Washington, July 13.— The sundry civil
appropriation bill as passed to-day contains
an item of $160,000 for the enforcement of
the new Chinese immigration act This is
an increase of $100,000 over tlie amount ap
propriated by the bill as passed in the House
and $110,000 over last year. The bill will
come out of the conference with not less
$120,000, so Senator Felton thinks.
The bill also provides for three surveys of
San Francisco Harbor.
There was a long debate on Walcott's
amendment to reduce from $200,000 t0 SGO.
--000, the amount appropriated by the House
for the division of special agents of the
Laud Department Last year's appropria
tion was §210,000. Felton took issue to-day
with Senators Call and Paddock, who re
ferred to extensive timber frauds in
California. Mr. Felton denied that
there were extensive limber or land
frauds in California, and was in
favor of curtailing the exnense of
keeping an army of spies on the land offices
throughout the country, white Sanders of
Montana referred to the special agents as
"Pinkertuns." Walcott's amendment was
adopted. This will necessitate a reduction
in the special land agents' force, and some
of the agents in California, Oregon, Ne
vada and Washington will b. among those
to co.
The conference on the diplomatic and con
sular appropriation bill reached an agree
ment to-day. the llouso surrendering the
only item at issue— the appropriation of
$05,000 for the expense of an inter-conti
nental railroad survey. A restrictive clause,
however, will accompany the, report which
makes it unlawful for any representative
of the United States Government to aid in
the construction of the road.
Frank G. Newlands of Nevada Is Elected

TI-Lexa, Mont., July 13.— At the second

by the election of Francis (J. Newlands of
Nevada president. On taking his so it, New

the mining States to put the interests of
silver before party interests, and formulat
ing a plan ol how party organization could
be preserved in each minim: State and the
people still be able to use their power to
advance the free coinage of silver. This
could be done by an ngreement that the
electoral Vote of the mining States should be
cast for no person as President who
would not agree to permit any sil

that all three of the national parties in the
Mining States should instruct their electors
to act independently in the electoral col

rather than In the Interest of any candi

The Way in Which Grain Gambling Can Still
Ba Carried On.
New York, July 13.— Henry Clews has
evolved the following ingenious plan for
getting around the anti-option measure:
"If the anti-option bill becomes a law, it
will prohibit option dealings in cotton
and wheat. it will not interfere, however,
on tho Cotton Exchange, with dealing in
options in the case of print cloths, the samo
as raw cotton Is now dealt in. and as each
case of print cloth will represent a bale of
cotton, the cotton can bo received on a cash
basis at the maturity of contracts in pay
ment therefor. On the Produce. Exchange
hay run he dealt in in options. Hay repre
sents one of our largest crops In this coun
try, and 10 bales of hay can represent 10
bushels of wheat in value. As the law per
mits wh at being dealt in on a cash basis
only, wheat can be received in payment to
provide for the maturity of the hay con
tract. Th s method will also be in con
formity with the spirit of reciprocity in
trade, which is now very much in favor by
our Government."

-pedal to The Morning Call.
London - , July 13.— Considerable depres
sion is caused in the Liberal camp by the
announcement this morning of the result of
yesterday's election in Midlothian, Glad
stone's constituency. It was known that
Colonel Wauchope. Gladstone's opponent,
had been working hard to reduce Gladstone's
majority, and every means were adopted by
tbo uarties to get the voters to the, polls.
Old men and invalids were taken in vehicles
to the polling-places. As the day wore on it
was seen that Gladstone was losing
ground. This led to redoubled effort.
on the part of the Liberal committee,
and resulted la a heavier vote than
ever before known in the district, and
shows a g reat change in the political senti
ment in Midlothian. Hitherto the district
has been looked upon as belonging to Glad
stone. Gladstone's actual majority this
year is 690. This is a pitiable majority
compared with the previous elections. In
1885 Gladstone received a majority of 4831.
and at the last general election In 1886 the
district was regarded as such a Lib-rat
Stronghold that the Unionists did not run a
candidate. The Conservatives and Liberal
Unionists are in high glee over the result.
They bold tho announcement to-day shows
that Gladstone has signally failed in win
ning supporters to his Lome-rule scheme.
At midnight the return?, so far as re
ceived, show that the Conservatives have
232 member-, the Liberal-Unionists 35, the
Liberals 208, the Laborites 3. Anti-Parnell
ites 42 and Parnellites 7. Tha chagrin of
the Liberals over the small majority ob
tained by Gladstone is mitigated by the un
expected series of successes they achieved In
the counties. Since the beginning of the
elections the announcement of no day's re
sult has recorded so many Liberal gains as
to-day. Gladstone is not disheartened by
ttio result of the polling in Midlothian.
Certain Liberals admit that another gen
eral election is aigh and regard it as inevit
able during 1892, while some forecast disso
lution on homo rule as likely to take place
in the spring.
