In the wounded list there were sixteen in the Herrin Hospital three reported in the Carbondale Hospital and a number of others striking miners believed to be lying in their Homes. There was Little question that the exact number of dead never will be known. Dozen dead in Pond a dozen or so were believed to be at the Bottom of a Pond. No one seemed inclined to drag the Pond. No searching parties have been organized to seek bodies in the Woods. All reports whether from miners or from strike Breakers or mine operators agree that the killings really were a massacre that the victims wore shot Down in cold blood after they had put up the Flag and surrendered themselves and their arms to the attacking forces.

He died where he was said to have made this statement. The mine Safe was dotted and one Man with some $1,599 in Bills stood with a Semi Circle of men around him and dealt out the Bills like cards a Cordin to wounded men who wore there. The correspondent saw men wounded almost to death kicked around in the scorching Sun in Dusty roads to saw men chased through Fields like rabbits by shouting persons who opened fire once catching him acc Dently Between two fires. Plea bring Only jibes surrounded by armed men he saw a knife plunged into the Throat of a wounded Man who in his dying breath gasped a plea a in the name of j my Mother in the name of your Mother in the name of our god. Give to water a Only to receive laughter and jibes such As Quot where you re going you wont see water a As a reply. Mothers carried babies into Tho morgues and up to piles of bodies in the roads with such remarks As Quot take a look at what your papa did he watched a Man walk to the bedside of a dying Man and curse him and jeer at him As he breathed his last. Through it All although the fight area was traversed a dozen times there was not a word heard of sympathy for a victim. The sentiment seemed to be that strike Breakers deserved Slaughter and that these had received it. Few of the dead could be positively identified. Most of the had been rifled of All effects. After lying piled in the morgues yesterday hey were embalmed last night. Scores watched processes All through the night making unprintable remarks about the bodies. Official statements scarce official statements were scarce. Every one talked of the fight and Many frely related their own experiences yet nope even knew of .

Between the Road and the Woods a the right Side there was a barbed wire Fence most of the prisoners probably thinking vaguely that it would be something to have the Fence. They had difficulty with their suit Case there were shouts of a drop your suitcases. You won t need them a which appealed to the humor of the jeering mob. A Hor Down like Rabbit most of the prisoners dropped their suitcases and scrambled through and scurried into the Woods. The shooting was underway and the killing was on throughout the Woods. Men were running and dodging and the crowds were shooting at them. When one fell. The crowd closed in and for a a Volley into the prostrate form the throats of two were Cut.
