Sept. 12.�?so far there has been no further trouble of any kind and scarcely an incident that could he magnified to proportions deserving to be termed exciting. Neither the City nor any of the suburbs Are under marshal Law is some my suppose. The measure in which general Goblin is exercising authority is Best defined by two of his acts today one the disarming of the italian and polish societies that participated in the funerals the other a declaration to the effect that no arrests of the sheriff or deputies would be permitted until after the inquest. The feeling Between the Soldier and the residents rather tends to a Friendly nature. While opinion is divided As to the Wisdom of calling out the troops the people Here realize that the guards Man arc present to guard All alike and even those who protested against them coming do not Manifest the least degree of animosity town Ila the Soldier boys. That the Soldier boys have no fear of molestation from the strikers was strikingly evidenced by a picture presented by two of them whom your correspondent saw tills afternoon coming by the Roadside three Miles from the Elty and right in the midst of a strikers Community with no arms about them save those of two fair polish Maidens who not unlike their american Sisters Are Faszl Nutch by a uniform. The soldiers suy there cannot he any further uprisings the strikers say they Don t and never did intend violence the re Refl and his posse Ore Hora de combat and the people of the town not directly interested Are not even disquieted wherefore All in All the question of further trouble it is Safe to assume is now no longer to receive consideration. The governor s troop is stationed about town at night As patrolmen to prevent possible Drunken brawls. As yet they has e not had to make an arrest As the soldiers Are keeping orderly and the town people desert the streets before Midnight which Means that there is no evident Tough element about. There War a conflict today but it was Between the military and civil authorities. Warrants for the arrest of the sheriff and deputies were sworn out in Luray by to friends of the striker and placed in the hands of holier p. Hulcy superintendent of the Anthracite detective Bureau a. Hess was first in command und i sheriff Martin and who la the Moat detested of All i he posse fearing violence at the bands of the strike sympathizers sought Refuge within the ranks of the ninth regiment it Haz c Park.

As in the ease of sheriff Martin they wire Donl d the prisoner und refused admittance within the lines. Colon Quot a Dougherty giving the order. Constables Learned that Hess was to he escorted to his Home under military guard and Dot a mined to get him. At 2 o clock this morning Cupl Aln Myers in charge of a squad of ten men started w 1th Hess for his Homo. Some distance from the Park they wore met by two Deputy constables who Hud been summon d in the interim. The constables attempted to arrest Hess und when the soldiers pushed them away they threatened to arrest them too. Constable Ducor told the soldiers that hey were no longer in Camp and had no authority outside of it and he proposed to have the holy of the Man whom the com Mon each had directed him to arrest. When he followed up this argument with a show of Foro Captain Myers ordered his men to surround the constr Irtys. This they did and Ducer Tho Leader Nus sent to the Rump und r arrest. The other constables chose n part the to a night in the guard tent and Hess Wax then taken Home without further trouble. Dueer s release was ordered by general Goblin this afternoon on petition of attorney p. Of Loughran counsel for the strikers. At the attorneys advise the warrants have been re exiled from the hands of the constables and no arrests will be it tempted until later possibly after the inquest it being deemed Wiser and mor prudent to do this both to it it prevent a clash of authority und to give time for getting the evidence in better shape.
