The Situation at Cripple Creek.
SCOTTDALE, P., May 31.
LABOR leaders are very indignant
over the proclamation issued by
Governor Pattison yesterday.
They believe it the duty of Gov
ernor Pattison to issue another pro
clamation directing it exclusively
to the coke oporators and compel
them to dlspouse with the deputies'
services nt once. Public opinian is
greatly favoring the unemployed
throughout the region, and it iB assert
ed that the op, raters aro devising all
nunner of means to provoke riots in
the hopes of having the National
Guard sent here to assist them.
A car load of Austrians, numbering
forty-two, and hailing from the east,
were received at the Moyer plant of
the V. J. Rainey company this morn -inc
at 11 o'clock. They were met at
Greensburg by Superintendent Johns
and several deputies, who piloted
them to their destination with safety.
COAL OPERATORS DISAGREE.
BPBIHOFIBLD, HI., May 31. The con
ference of the coal operators of Illinois
this morning to arrange prices and
come to an ngreement whereby tho
competition of the northern and south
ern und central Illinois fields could bs
adjusted to the end of settling the
great coal strike, came to naught.
There were thirteen mining companies
repr. seated by about fifty delegates.
The mines repre.,unted control an an
nuil output of 4,521.000 tons.
The conference was composed en
tirely of northern operators, with a
few from the central portion, the
op'-rators of southern Illinois and the
groat Consolidated Coal company re
fusing to eutur. After two hours of
finite argument among thotnielves,
the pirntore adjourned nini die.
Pittsburo. Pn., May 31. The H. C.
Friok Coke company sent a carload of
forty-seven Austrians and Negroes to
the Standard works at 1 o'clock this
afternoon. The men wore secured in
the Mansfield region and say they were
promised wages of $1 50 per day as
long us they would contiuue at work.
TRAINS DISCONTINUED.
Springfield, 111 , May 31 Owing
to the scarcity of coal the Illinois Cen
tral will tomorrow discontinue two
passenger trains on tho Springfield and
Gilmun division and every freight
train except one
The Wabash shops, employing nearly
1,000 men, close tomorrow and every
freight train not absolntely necessary
will be abandoued. Within one week,
It is thought, every industry in Spring
fi 'Id will be at a standstill for lack of

Pana, 111., May 31. Four hundred
local miners marched to the Penwell
mines this morning and tried to drive
out the men at work. The deputy
sheriff finally succeeded in driving
away the strikers. Several of the dep
nties and strikers were severely
handled. The strikers threaten to at
tuck the mine undercover of darkness,
and serious trouble is feared, The
mine will bo strongly guarded.
Danville, III., May 31 The strik
ing miners in the Danville field are on
the verge of starvation. The patients
at tho St. Elizabeth hospital are sofi'dr
inK because there is no coal und tho
Striken have refused to allow any fuel

the institution.
SITUATION AT CRIPPLE CREEK
Cripple Crekk. Col., May 31. All is
qniet on the hill, the governor being
detained Dy a wasnout, wnioh ne
cessitated a postponement of ths pro
posi d meeting to effect a compromise.
The miners may eventually be driven
from their position, but any attempt
to remove them by force will result in
loss of life. The picket lines nro so
trong now that no man cau enter the
camp or leave it without an order
from the commander.
A regular conrt martial has been es
tablished and n session is held nightly
The strictest military duty is now en
forced and pickets change on the hour
bs regularly us soldiers in the regular
iirmy when on duty, The minors on
Bull bill received a large quantity of
provisions and ammunition at their
headquarters last night and are rein
forcing their position at every point
They hove received number of shells
for tbtir 25 pound fiold piece which is
so located that they are better prepared
to shell the enemy than the deputies
are to storm tne tort on Hull hill.
They now have nearly one hundred
head of hones and their soouts are
muring the country in all directions
getting information of the actions of
the deputies and arranging for sun
plies. They have a secret system of se
curing information nnd they know of
everything that goes on in the heart of
' the deputies camp. Three of the stages
on the Cripple Creek and Ctnon City
mail line to Lawrence have been stop-
pea ny nrmea men. ine drivers were
compelled to stop nntil all the passen
gers had boen searched and relieved of
nil crenrms.
Two six horse stuges arrived from
JJ'iUand both laden with grain. No
1 .Monger has come on the stage for
pjm time, but the outgoing convoy
n.ioiare londed with frightened neo
t e who aro fl -elng from the threatened
d.a,-r. The strikers are now making
pruoveri or men whom tney consider
d.Uv'irous to their safety and some peo
j i are extravagant enough to say that
flfty persons aro tnui item in custody.
The latest capture is that of Jako
Greonwall. of It qua Gulnh.
Uniontown, Pa., May 81 Five car
loads, of negroos, about 250 in all, were

town and O iver woiks. Several oC
the old miner returned to work at
Kyle today. A raid on Kyle, Oliver
and other plants ntar Dunbar h is boen
planned for tomorrow providing the
weather does not interfere. The pro
clamation of Governor Pattison cuts no
figure whatever, so far ns deterring the
nieu from marching and threatening
violence.
Mount Pleasant. Pa.. May 31. To
day 200 men were at work at Standard,
about 180 of whom were uegroes,

COXEY HAS HAD ENOUGH.
The General Will Quit Commonweal-
in,' If He is Let Out

Washington, May 31. Inquiry at

a movement.
Ho is represented as being quite will
ing to quit if he ean only get his lib-
rtv betore the expiration or his twonty
days' sentence, which has still nine
days to run. This is indicated by his
transferring his command to "Gen
eral" Frye and sending ell his bst
horses home to Massilon. The Galvin
contingent added to tho Cjx.it brigade
is proving a far more tnrbnlont crowd
of aggressive tramps and beggars,
IMs understood that on eomnlaint of
citizens tho sheriff of the Marylaud
county whore all tho Comyites are now
