flow ing once more ia Harlan county This time it is not an ambushed flghc between the na tive factions that has made the mane of Harlan synonymous witk outlawry but a pitched battle between armed and drilled soldiers on the one side and a band of des perate men under tho leadership of Wilg Howard on whose head a price is sat ou the other The mrws reached hero only yes terday morning but tho fiiht occurred be fore daylight Wednesday morning Har Inn Court Houso from which point the news comes is nearly fitty miles away from here and the means ot commuuicatioa are nothing more than a semiweekly mail or a chanca visit of one of tha residents of that place The details of the fight are not known therefore the only news reaching here be ing that tlio troops were fired upon from a baru and six men wounded that tho militia theu surrounded the bjru and flroJ volley after volley into it and are now holding their ground ani awaiting reinforcements Locality anil Cnuse of tile Fight The place where the battle occurred is Bind Mountain ridge which is just east of Harlot Court House Tiie region has been in a state of terror months on account of tho HowardTurner feud and troops were asked for to protect tbi session of ccurt There were rumors of an attack on fhu troops last week by the partisans of Will Jennings on trial for murder but on Saturday Jennings wasi acquitted audit was believed danger from that source was over The troop i sent there to arrest a number of members of the Ianless gang which Has terrorized the county for sucb r long time and who wero said to be defying arrest by the civil oflicials The HowardTurner Feud The HowardTurner tcud ivhicli has madi tho name of Harlan a synonym for blood shod dates back to February 1SS2 when Bob Turner aged IS years ivas shot t death by Wilkerson Howard an uuclo o AVils Howard Sinco the killing of younj Turner tho vendetta has grown until almos every family iu the county is arrayed on ou side or tha other In fact it is stated tha no man ij allowed to ttike up residence i Harlan without first declaring hi and showing that be can handle a Winchester Those familiar with affairs say that not less than fifty people have been killed as a result of the feud many of them bains assassina tions from mountain fastnesses tho body rolling into a gulch to form food for the buzzard The Story of fi Turner George Turner whoi5Q three sous have fallen by bullets from ambuslied men with Winchesters some time ago wrote agrnphlc account oC the feud He stated that after his son Bob was killed Wilkerson Howard came to town and surrendered Tho trial was a farce and Wilkerson Howard was al lowed to go free Will Turner after How ards acquittal went to bis house while in and attempted to shoot him Next day the Howards assembled their clans fif teen or twenty men in jll and a con stable attempted to arrest young Turner Ho escaped and left tho state In July 18b5 he returned and the next day he was shot by some one ambushed behind a court house window No ono was arrested Killed Willie Wmliing His Face In July 18SO Alexander Bailey was shot to death while washiing nis face in George Turners yard and Tlils Howard was seeij making his wny across the road immediately after with a Winchester over his shoulder Aies Baileys murder occurred on Sunday Two days later Wils Howard and Will Jen nings went to tho house Judge James H Middleton and shot John Bailey a brother of Alexander Howard and Jennings fled but Judge Middloton raised a posse and pur sued them Howard and Jennings theu went to Missouri where they remained un til April 18S9 when they came into Harlan Conrt House Why No Howard Has Been Killed George Turner concluded his narrative as follows No Howard has ever been killed Why Does any ono say the Turners are cowards No No Turner has ever been confronted by his enemy in fair fight None of them who have died have seen their enemys face As tho father of niy three murdered boys I feel more comfort in con templating them in their bloody but honor able graves than had they lived through the instrumentality of ambushing and as sassinating their fallowmen No Turner died with a charge or indictment against him and no widows or orphans woes are charged to their account Their only of fensa consists in a love of honor that their adversaries could not appreciate and brav ery their foes were afraid to face The Kcnewal of Hostilities After Wils Howards return in April a year ago there was a renewal of hostilities Two or three men were assassinated from ambush and a general feeling of tsrror pre vailed Finally when Judge Lewis was about to bold a term of court in September be called en the governor for troops and a company of the state guard was sent up to protect the court All was quiet until after the soldiers left when at the head of a band of forty men outlaws like himself Wils Howard rode into town took possession and did as he pleased But one man was killed and this was John Cawood a relative of j Judge Lewis and a sympathizer with tha Turners The Judge Heads an Asaiult This last killing was the straw that broke the camels back Judge Lewis at the bead of a posse of fifty men all armed with Win chesters started out to exterminate Howard and his band They made an assault on tha Howard forces who were in camp at E M Howards house one mile from the town The engagement was short sharp and ter rific and not one of the attacking parry was hurt but one of Howards side Millard Dean was instantly killed and sue others were wounded some of them fatally Some davs after this tha two bands came together ona mountain side and Howard having the best position routed the LewisTurner faction killing Frank Cawooi and another man THE STRIKERS AT CHICAGO Mectimg of Workmen and Netr Ahead April
