There is strong reason to fear a conflict between the strikers and the military tomorrow, and there is an Indication that from GOOG to 7000 more miners will Join the malcontents. Feeling continues nigh against Sheriff Martin and his deputies, and the Intensity of the situation is such that the sudden turn of the head or a word spoken above the ordinary tone brings a Tunning crowd. The soldiers are watchful and ready for any emergency, arid the people of the town arc In a state which may easily become a panic. An Incident rf ugly omen occurred during the funeral of three of the victims this afternoon. While services were being held inside St Joseph’s church about 2000 of the foreigners were congregated about the doors. A number of them raised their voices, and it is declared by rye witnesses that a policeman stationed near the door became unduly officious. Instantly an ominous murmuring followed, mingled with scowling looks and clenched fists. Word was Immediately carried Indoors to Rev Fr Au«t. He hurried out to the door and bundled the men who seemed most quarrelsome into the church. A few words of counsel to the others prevented further demonstration. Trouble Is In the air, and lf lf Is to come the time will be tomorrow morning. This Is clear from the words used tonight by Gen Gobln, commander of the 3d brigade. The striking miners have made elaborate preparations for a demonstration at the funeral of IO of the victims, which is fixed for 10.30 o’clock In the morning. The military authorities are determined that nothing of the kind shall be permitted, and that from this time on there shall be no marching of any character whatsoever, whether during funerals or otherwise.    ___ ! Resolution Not Known. This resolution Is not generally known, and the miners are going on with their arrangements. Gen Gobin talked over the telephone to Gov Hastings for an hour or more this afternoon. He said he had merely made a formal report to the governor of the situation. It Is apparent, however, that the commander Is not cheered by the Immediate outlook, although he says he thinks there will be no further turbulence. He would not say when the troops are likely to be withdrawn, and he has resolved to aet with the utmost vigor. Furthermore he made a revelation which put a startling aspect upon the situation. This was that the house of the engineer of No. 3 colliery had been broken into late last night by six masked men. and the engineer, who is a cripple, unmercifully beaten. There Is no clew to the identity of the assailants. The only work the man has been doing lately Is the pumping necessary to free the mine from water.

All druggists. ] moi report of tho Audenreid outrage of last Thursday night, when strikers broke into the house of Gomer Jones, superintendent of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre : coal company. Jones, whoa? unpopularity with the miners was one of the first causes of the strike, was not there, but the men liter* j ally wrecked the interior of the hone-' and then attacked a mine power house near by, and stole therefrom a quantity of dynamite. As soon us he heard of this, U n Gobin assigned a guard of the loth regiment to remain at Audsnreid. , The addition to the strikers* ranks, if made, will be the men at Coxe s mines, and should they go out the last big un-1 thraelte company In the region will be Idle. It was not known until today that tho 2000 men employed at the colliery i No. 7 held a meeting at Stockton last j night and drew up a petition to the operators demanding an increase in wages j of IO percent. This will be presented tomorrow, and I the action in the event of refusal Is ; ’‘strike." It is accepted as a fact I hat lf the men go out all the others employed by the comp.my will join them, making the total number something between 5000 and 7000 from these mines alone. The Coxe men had already been offered an increase, but rejected it on the ground that it was still lower than the scale paid by the other operators In the region. These men have been working steadily up to this t'me, and of late up to IO o’clock at night. Under Martial Law. To all Intents and purposes, Hazleton Is under martial law. Gen Gobin declared tonight that in spite of the warrants Issued, no constables nor any civie authority will be permitted to arrest deputies. He said that the sheriff is an executive officer whose duty is to preserve the peace and that he, Gobin, and the troops are really subordinate to the aherlff at this time, being engaged In helping him to perform that duty. Under these circumstances, he will not permit interference with the sheriff’s officials, so long us the militia is here. In spite of this line distinction, the commander’s decision on this point is accepted as superseding civil authorities by the military power. The events of today were the deuth of another of the wounded, Jacob Toma-shantos, the 18-year-old boy who was shot through the head, the announcement this afternoon by the hospital doctors that six more will die, several, perhaps, before morning, and the funerals of four of the victims. These were Andrew Yureck, Steve Urich, John Futa and Mike Cheslok. Ten more will be buried tomorrow, and hero the trouble Is likely to occur. It has been arranged that the IO coffins shall be carried on the shoulders of the strikers from the undertaker’s shop to the front of St Joseph’s church. In front of the church a platform will be erected, upon which it Is the purpose to place the IO coffins, so that they can be viewed by the crowd. Then addresses In Polish and English ere to be made- by priests and others, and the bodies will be carried inside and pontifical high mass will be celebrated. After the services the procession will go to the Polish cemetery, where eight of the coffins, those containing Poles, will be placed In one large grave. It is the purpose to acquire by subscription sufficient funds to erect over this a monument boating the names of the victims and a brief history of the event. Seventeen societies, all but one made up of Poles, Hungarians and others of tile Slav race, and one of Irish, are to march iii the funeral procession. If Gen Gobin executes the intention he amii-uneed tonight, this whole program will bo upset, and it is feared that the men will iese-nt any interference with. the disposition of their dead. Dr Ii. P. L-iwantloski of New York, representing the Polish societies of that city, arrived here today. He is empowered to assist tile strikers in every possible way, to help them to gain thefc-demands from the operators, and to arrange for the prosecution of the sheriff and deputies. La tar in the day he said he had received word that a check for $10u0 from the National Polish alliance, which recently met in Philadelphia, had been sent on for the aid of the miners, and that he has promises of additional large subscriptions from New York and other cities. A number of Pollen priests from New York, Buffalo and ether places are also expected to arrive tomorrow. Austrian Consul Investigating.

Carl Karlson, GG, of 32 Sawyer st, Sotflh end, was drowned off Paddocks Island, Boston harbor, late Saturday night or early yesterday morning, and the police, after inquiring into the facts, are unable to decide definitely whether It was an accident, a murder or a suicide. John E. Wicklander, GS, of 74 Chestnut av, Roxbury, is locked up at station 12, City Point, on the charge of drunkenness, and Is also under suspicion of having caused the death of Karbson. John ll. Sutherburg, 43, of 766 East 6th st, South Boston, was the third member of the yachting party, and although he saw Karlson drown, he Is uncertain whether Wicklander was responsible for his death or not. The facts, as gleaned from various sources, are that Wicklander fitted out his dory Arrow with a large supply of llquota, and on Saturday night, shortly after IO, accompanied by Karlson and Sutherburg, started from City Point on a fishing trip. They were seen to pass the life-saving station, anchored near Spectacle and Thompsons Islands, about 10.30, heading for Paddocks island. There they fished, but how long la not known. The Arrow is a small flat-bottomed dory, partly covered over and has a sail in her. Wicklander, the owner, had charge of the craft during the trip. It was off Peddoeks Island thai Karlson was lost overboard. Contradictory stories are told of the affair by Wick-lander and Sutherburg. About ll yesterday morning the two men In the Arrow sailed alongside the life-saving station, and Sutherburg shouted to Capt Clawson that he wished to go aboard and tell him a story. The captain Invited him aboard and took him into his office. •'Last. night a little party of us started from City Point on a fishing trip,” said Sutherburg,” and we lay off Peddoeks Island. We were standing off, when suddenly Carl Karlson Jumped overboard from the forward part of the boat, and soon sank. Wicklander and I had a dispute as to which should try to save him, and finally I made tho attempt in the tender. I saw Karlson struggling In the water, but I could not get to him, und he soon sunk. “We were about 300 yards from the shore at the time, and after Kurlsoa was lost we sailed inside Peddoeks and lay there for the night. This morning a lobsterman came aboard and helped us get sail up and we started for here.” Capt Clawson -thought all had not been as It should be aboard the boat, und ho took Sutherburg and Wickernian ashore and Informed the police of what had been told him. Wickerman was taken to the station and locked up ort the charge of drunkenness. Sutherburg told Capt Clawson that Karlson was drowned about 10.30 Saturday night, but the captain says the Arrow was seen to pass the station about that time. Later in the day Sutherburg told the police a somewhat different story. He said that it was late Saturday night when they lay to off Peddoeks, and that soon Wicklander and Karlson were engaged in a quarrel about money. Karlson had owed Wb klunder some money and had given him some en account. Wicklander claimed that Karlson had not given him enough, having handed him only 60 cents, whereupon Karlson gave him a quarter more, remarking that he had but a nickel left. During Vins argument Wicklander, was In the stern of the boat, and Karlson was near him, while Sutherburg was a little forward. Sutherburg Intimated that Wicklander had pushed Karlson overboard. He sail his back was turned during this heated conversation, and that when he looked around he saw Karlson fall Into the water. He said he drew up the tender and jumped in and made for the spot where last he saw Karlson. He could hear him calling for assistance, but he could not reach him before he sank. After returning to the boat Sutherburg says he tried to urge Wicklander to change the course of the boat and return and look for Karlson, but the latter with several oaths exclaimed: “To  with him; he owed n e money and he has got what he deserved.” Sutherburg said his protestations were of no avail. He then wanted Wicklander to sail home and report the matter to the police, but Wicklander would not listen to such a project. The police are of the opinion that there was so much liquor drank aboard the Arrow that not one of the trio was conscious of what was taking place. Whether Iii thl3 condition Karlson accidentally fell overboard or Wicklander shoved him from the boat the police are unable lo say, yet they look with suspicion Continued on the Seventh i'uue- Arrest of Her Son, Edward F.

Shel don, 86, arid her sister, Miss Harriet Sheldon, 82. Matilda was found in a dying condition by the person who discovered the tire. Her sister passed away after her removal to the hospital, lingering until 2 p rh. About 9.30 this morning Matilda arose to prepare breakfast. A common kerosene stove had been used by them during the hot weather Instead of the old family range. Before she filled tho stove with oil this morning she lighted the wicks, and, removing the cork, proceeded to pour in the fluid. In doing so the oil became Ignited, and as sh* sought to extinguish the blaze the entire front of her wrapper became enveloped in flames, and in another moment the flames were rating their waf Into her body. Edward F. O’Brien, 17 years of age, and Myrtle Chapman, 16 years of age, were both pupils of the Hugh O’Brien grammar school on Dudley st, until the beginning of the summer vacation. Neither of them graduated, as Edward— "Ned,” he is popularly called—should have, lf he had attended to his studies, but Ned was so deeply in love with Myrtle Chapman that study was simply out of the question for cither. Now Ned has Heil from his home at 8 Sargent st, Dorchester, and Is probably at the present time out at Kent, O, or very near there, either married to th ' little falr-halred Myrtle or working hard toward that end. Ned's mother Is hot on his trail with a warrant for his arrest, on the ground that he is under age, and cannot contract a marriage without her consent— and that consent she will not give. She fears that the boy has outwitted her, and that after he went to Kent, O, f*r which place he started last Thursday, he Induced some minister or justice of the peace to perform the ceremony. This Is pure conjecture on the mother’s part, based on the ground that the girl was willing and has been willing for a long time to become the wife of Ned whenever the latter could arrange matters. Ned O'Brien tried to do this early last summer, before the school season In Boston ended und before his young fiancee started for Ohio, which she did soon after school closed. At that time Ned was in despair. He was a very love-slek boy, nnd he thought over all sorts of schemes to get a marriage license. Finally he hit on one scheme, it la said, which Very nearly proved a success. Ned has a face which might pass for a few years more than 17, but he did not think It looked quite and until all of the passengers had departed again, and she went home, but there was no Ned and no word from him. She began to get worried, and she telegraphed to Rockland, Inquiring what was the matter. Btu* received a reply which stated that Ned had started for the west Thursday, to find employment. Saturday morning Mrs O’Brien received a letter from her son, which had been malled at Rockland, In which he stated that when she received the letter he would he hundreds of railes away. Mrs O’Brien was somewhat dazed hy the suddenness of the whole affair, but she grasped the meaning of the whole matter nnd proceeded to take steps to have her boy arrested. She found out she could have him arrested and returned as an Incorrigible boy, nnd she has a warrant out for his arrest, which la probably on Its way to Ohio at the present time. She then found that matters between her son und Myrtle chapman, who had been residing at 560 Dudley st. batt assumed very serious proportions before the school season ended. The boy spent most of his time, It appears, In the company of the girl, and told his friends that they were engaged to be married. Brothers Were Not Won Over. The girl was much smitten with the boy, also, and Ned was such a frequent visitor ut the Chapman household that he became objectionable to the brothers of the girl and to the father, but the girl's mother, it Is said, took the boy’s part. She was willing that they should keep company with each, other, and it Is understood that she was not averse to an immediate marriage. Ned O’Brien will fall heir to some property In a few years, and might not have been regarded us a very bad catch , for Myrtle. Nod, It Is said, exaggerated old enough to secure a marriage license considerably the amount of his prosat city hall without exciting Suspicion, j *£)r,„tJ,vae so, It Is saki, he bought a nice little brown mustache and glued It to his upper lip and tried to run the gantlet In that way. But the ruse did not work. Something went wrong, and Ned did not get the license. His mother never for a moment suspected that mat* um were as serious as this with the boy. She knew that he was very much smitten with Myrtle Chapman, but site did not Imagine it was so serious. She determined to send the boy to Rockland. Me, for tho summer, to some friends, where he could ride on his bicycle lo his heart’s content and fish and play baseball and enjoy himself as boys of 17 are wont to enjoy themselves, and In the meantime forget about little Myrtle Chapman. She later went to Kent, O, with her mother, as the father, W. M. Chapman, a machinist, had gone there some time before to work at Youngstown, O. Absence Made Heart Fonder. But Ned O’Brien evidently did not forget Myrtle Chapman. Distance otjly made the fetters of his young love stronger and lent enchantment to the view. Last Wednesday he left Rockland, Me,—with ROO which he borrowed from his grandfather. Hon Ellis O’Brien of Thomaston, Me, and with the proceeds of the sale of his bicycle, his mother thinks—and started on his Journey for Kent, O. It Is thought that Myrtle Chapman knew that he was coming—In fact, that they had been corresponding all summer. Last Wednesday morning Mrs O’Brien, the boy’s mother, received a letter from him, in which he asked permission to remain in Rockland another week. That same day she wired him to start for home the next morning, stating that a special delivery letter had been forwarded which he would receive in the morning before he started, which would explain. This letter told him of a Job which she had secured for him, as he did not wish to return to school, and advised him to come at. once and take the position. Thursday evening Mrs O’Brien went to the union station, expecting to meet her boy who had been at Rockland, Me, for nine weeks. Tho train came In and Mrs O'Brien waited and waited until every passenger had departed, but her Ned was not on the train. She w ent home, thinking it was rather strange and hoping that she might yet see him in tho house that evening, for she thought it possible that they might have missed seeing each other at the station. But he did not appear at the house und she received no word from him the next day. She went to the union station again in the evening and waited until the Rockland train had arrived, Nod, his mother thinks, has been taking some very romantic and unwarranted Uberties with the truth In regard to many things, much to her surprise. Ills grandfather In Thomaston, Me, Is a wealthy rn in, but aside from the prospects In this direction the care or his other Inheritances will not tax his energies very much. Ned gave Myrtle Chapman and her mother to understand that his prospects w hen he came of age were gilt edged, and this It Is thought, might have Influenced Myrtle into a hasty marriage and possibly Induced the mother to give her consent. Mrs O’Brien is very angry about the mtlre matter, and tf she has her way— lf it Is not too hue—the boy will not get married for several years. Ned told a chum of his In Rockland, X’otititiued ou Hie Fifth Bilge. Both in Flames. She shrieked In terrible agony, and her sister rushed to her aid, In trying to save her elder sister her clothing became w rapped in flames, which quickly spread over her entire boily. Shrieking and crying frantically, Matilda ran from the kitchen Into the parlor, und either overcome by smoke or by the terrible pains of her injuries, fell face downward upon the floor. where she remained until picked up by a neighbor. In a dying condition. Her sister Harriet, unconscious, and burned In a terrible manner, fell In a chair In the kitchen. Charles S. Peabody, who lives In an adjoining house, had by this time been aroused by the cries, and forcing on entrance to the house was confronted by a sickening .spectacle. In the front parlor he found the inanimate form of the elder sister, as above described, nnd In a chair In the kitchen was tho writhing form of Harriet. Aid Came Too Late. Quickly grabbing a shawl he wrapped It about the form of the latter and subdued the flames, and going to the assistance of the sister In the other room. lifted her head from tho floor, just aa she breathed her last. The fire department had responded In the meantime, and all the neighbors had arrived on the scene, hut there was little that they could do.
