II AitMSBUHO, May 30.
Li celved a letter from Sheriff Wil
li helm, of Fayette county, in
Viitl which tbe sheriff details nt
length the various conflicts caused by
the striking coke workers, several of
whicli resulted in death of persons and
injury to iniinv others. He informed
the governor that tho strikers march in
luro bodies, iu some instuuee 2,000 in
number, and that owing to tbe large
numbers and tho dangerons character
of tho mob it is extromely diflicult to
secure pons'-a equal to tbe emergen
cies. He regards tiie situation as crit
ical and communicates these facts to
lbo governor that the latter may un
derstand the necessity for prompt ac
tion. The governor replied at once inform
ing the sheriff that bo has issued a pro
claniation which should be posted con
npicnonsly throughout the county. The
reclamation declares that riotous do
monstrations extat in various sections
of Fayette county whicn threaten lives
aud property and which tho civil umbo
rities are unable to suppress. Com
mands all persons engaged in such de
monstration to disperse, warning them
that persistence in violation will com
pel resort to military force to compol
obedience of the law.

to move out ten 11 it cars loaded with
coal. As tho train stopped to switch
on to tiie main track it was captured
by a gang of strikers who cut the cars
loose, piled ties between them aud
dumped tho coal on ihe tracks. The
miuors' organizatlou has declined the
invitation of the committee of business
in n to meet tonight and dlsontS the
situation. Tbe feeling is usly.

PmLLIPSBDRO, Pa.. May 30. In an
swer to an inquiry as to what his
opinion was of tbe operators' confer

White, of HontBdale, tin strike leader
In the ClCarfleld district, said: "If the
operators of the Central Pennsylvania
lields and oilier regions in this compet
ing district will unito in naming ex
actly what rate per ton they are will
ing to pay the miners they would put
nothing in tho way ton speedy settle
The governor's m-ssag to White
Inst night was Immediately wired to
President McBride. Mr. VVliito said
that there is no truth in tho report that
the wages of the miners in the Poca
hontas dLtrict are -10 per cent, lower
than wages paid in this region. Ho
said that before tbe suspension the
miners in Pocahontas received 35 cents
a net ton, that as soon as the suspen
sion was ordered the operators gave
their miners an advance of 5 cents n
ton, and taking into consideration that
the miners of that region have no dead
work to perform, he thinks they are
better paid th in tue minors in this re
gion at 35 cents net.
The report that tho sheriff of Clear
field county has istud a letter to
miners, has no further foundation
than that at tho time the minors were
making demonstrations at Woodland,
where the mines were guarded by conl
and iron police, the sheriff had pre
pared for him a carefully worded pro1 -lamntiou,
which be intended to ujs if
necessary. The necessity has not yet
Uniontown, Pa., May 3(1 No out
breaks nre reported at any point in tbe
region today. Five morn of the Stickle
Hollow strikers furnished bail this
moruing and were released. James
Lunghrey, the young man charged
with the killing of one of the Slave tit
Stickle Hollow, was brought here to
j ul this morning. He will be given a
bearing in a few days. At Kyie,
where the strikers are camping in large
force, no outbreak has occurred, al
though it is reported that tbe deputies
fired several fthots at strikers this
morning for uttempts to interfere with
the workmen. No one wns hurt.
Bei.mcfontb, Pa., May 30.-Tho conl
operators in Center county havo written
to Sheriff Condo here, in king him to be
iu readiness to respond to a call for as
sistance at any lime. It seems to be
the inteution of tho operators to start
their mines with new men at the old
scale. The sheriff was through the
snow shoe district yesterday, but found
no reason for the operators asking for
help at the present time.
Denver, OoL May 30. Gov. Waits
last night left Denver secretly
and this morning arrived at
Victor, where he is having a
conference with the miners. Tho
governor says he goes to Cripple Crek
as a Knight of Labor to tulle with his
fellow knights. No more war, there
fore, has been made to-day. The
strikers have warned the people that
they dislike to leave tbe town of
Cripple Creek. Deputy sheriffs nre
still encamped at Divide and are bsing
It is not thought that Waite's pres
ence will stay a battle, which seems
inevitable, and tbe general belief is
that trouble will occur as soon as the
governor leaven. The people oC Color
ado Springs and D.nver are highly in
censed at the governor and his parti
ality to the strikers and the prese is'
unanimous in condemnation of his
acts, fven the Populist papers pointing
out the governor's errors.
The citizsns of Colorado Springs
have been alarmed by private reports
received there that the strikers intend
to come to that plnco and capture mine
owners and hold thein as hostages.
They held a mooting this morning and
appointed a home guard of 200.
Speeches were made by prominent
cilizens, ono of whom, a banker, offer

wilh West Virginia coal yesterday and
detained it. This morning another

company appealed to Sheriff Rilov, but
owing to tho great number of slrikers,
he decided to involve military aid.

he lost no timo iu granting it.
Indianapolis, lnd., May 30. The
Evauville and Terre Haute railroad,
by its attorneys, m ide application to
the federal court here today for a rc-
Itratning order to prevent the striking
miners from interfering with its

Judge Biker, but for some reason tbe
order was refused. The attorneys then
sought Governor Matthews und held a
consultation with mm at which it is
supposed protection was demanded,
