Sheriff Lures Twenty-tliree Men to
Court For Arrest
Huntingdon, Oct. 31.—A clever ruse
on the part of the authorities yester
day led to the arrest of twenty-three
alien miners on a charge of inciting
to riot. The Thropp mines, at Melrose,

miners for the past several weeks, and
the other 100 Italian miners threw
down their picks and walked out.
Wednesday, as an American was go

by one of the strikers and rendered un
conscious by a blow on the head. Later
in the day the American procured a re
volver, shot his assailant in the right
leg and took refuge in the general store
Learning of the shooting, 100 angry
aliens charged the store with clubs,
rocks and other weapons. Their pur
pose was to kill the American assail
ant of their fellow-countryman, but he
Yesterday morning twenty-three of
the Italians were informed that they
were wanted in Huntingdon, the county
seat, as witnesses in the shooting case,

house here, Sheriff H. E. Wilson had
them all placed under arrest. Taken
completely by surprise, all of the twen
ty-three submitted to arrest without
violence. They were held under S3OO
bail each for appearance in court. Other
arrests will follow.
