It is greatly against the wishes general Gnoth that there should be any big turnout and Effort were being made All Day yesterday to prevent this by strategy. The mine companies which have come to an agreement with their men were urged to use every Effort to resume work monday morning and it is possible that some will succeed but it is not probable though As the men in making the agreement saturday would not hear to going Hack to work until after the funeral. The Only reason that it is undesirable to have a general turn out la Thot the miners the individual companies who Are still on strike will meet and commingle with these who have reached a settlement and the consequence my he that the Good work the conferences he turd a May be All overturned. The general sentiment Here is still As Strong As Ever us Arnst the sheriff s posse.

It is a Small Little Hamlet White three or four Hundred mine workers reside and consist trolley Street about four blocks Long nne a lined with Small company houses on either Side. There Are other houses scattered around to the East and West trolley sir Elk named after the trolley Roud. Which connect the Hamlet with Thlu City hut to Alt intent and purpose trolley Street is Lett Lucr. Just Over the Hill is the mining Village Harleigh. At the Point where the Public Highway curves a Little and lose its identity in trolley Street Friday s Slaughter took Olnee. The turf tie readouts i still stained with dark Rad patches that Tell where the Send and dying Lay after the shooting was Over. Few Battle ibid have presented the scene that the half Are land about the curve in the Turnpike did after Friday afternoon s trouble. The ground was literally covered with the Deml and wounded. Yesterday the ground was littered with pieces blood snaked cloth torn from the garments the injured or Given by people the neighbourhood. Which were used in stopping the flow blood Lief re the wounds were hound up Ami the men remove to the snap Lnla. Today nearly nil these gruesome reminders the fighting have disappeared relic Hunters appropriated them. The people Waltl Mer talk nothing hut the shooting line old lady who was an Quot be witness to it the trouble said Quot i will never he the same again this shooting has and a terrible effect upon me Quot and she seemed to grow weak As memory recalled the terrible scenes to her. 8tokie8 Eye witnesses. Yesterday i heard the Story the shooting Fram nearly a Doxen Eye witnesses. Among them or. Harvey who it Tendril Many the men after the shooting the deputies stood in front his place when Mey fired. Few the witnesses agree in the matter detail is to what look place Between the strikers and the Riff Martin just before the shooting hut All agree that the killing a unwarranted. One English speaking mine worker who saw the trouble from beginning to end. Told what he observed to me. I give it because it is the most comprehensive Story the cuyp be. The other Eye witnesses 1 interviewed corroborated his version the parts the trouble they saw with the exception the manner in which the Quot sheriff was treated by the strikers. He was quite sure they took i revolver away from him. Shoved him about and finally got hint on the ground. All the other witnesses i saw aver that shr Martin a not knocked Down and some went a Ltd far is to say that he was not even struck the strikers merely taking his revolver away from him v Hen he threatened to shoot them and then shoved him about a he a Lene unread them Lor their conduct. The Eye Witny a a referred to above said Quot i was coming up the Stre-1 trolley Street i w Hen an a decile car came dashing Down the Road and Stoppel rather near that Box Cutten you see there at the cml the Road. A lot m n w Ith guns got off Anil after standing in a group for a moment or two formed a sort a rounded line from the end the Fence that last House on the right hand Side the Street to about the Center the Roud. Most the men had thur backs toward Tiu Fence and Many them stood quite close to it. To me it appeared As them were seventy or eighty the men with guns. They were two and three deep in some pm aces. About the time the line in being formed the str Keis came into View on the Turnpike about Iuo or 7t 0 Yards front where the deputies were. They were making Little noise but a tented to be in n merry Rath r than a dangerous mood. They a it some kind an old Ling that was carried in lion them and close to that and a few Yard ahead the column were two youngsters who were probably breaker boys. They nor swaggering along and evidently deriving much fun a but the whole affair Only n few l he men had Slicks in Thror its mis Natl there was not u deadly weapon visible. Sheriff stopped them. Quot As the men came Down Throat the so Tiff stopped them it that wooden Culvert at out in feet flown where the deputies went in line and it it oks to them. 1 could not hear what a said but n Good Deal feeling was la pity. De on Batih sides. The sheriff had ills revolver in his hand and raised it to fire. The Man around him grabbed his Arm. Tore the weapon from ills hand and threw it to the ground. They a lid not attempt to use it. Then there to a Sci feb and the sheriff was thrown to the ground. I Don t know that he was hit will Quot he was Down for at that moment my attention was nti rim cd by a movement among the Efi Putley. I Ine than ran out from the line and then a a he it was fired. I live Levy by the Man who w it towards the sheriff. I observed the sheriff get to his feet and in a somewhat couching Natl tue a run toward the end the Fence w Lilb marked the end Lila line deputies. I did not hear him give u command to tire but saw the guns discharged before he reached his men and saw a number the striker fall. Quot the tiring Hud ended with that Volley the loss would not Hove been to great. When the first shot rang out the strikers at Emol rooted to the a not for the instant then those who were a Lile turned and lied some la Ock along the Road others through the underbrush and Trees to the right there hut the most them crossed the troll y Road und ran up along that Hilt on the left. The a a Spulle kept shinning turning to Rover them Quot a a they Fie i. When the first Volley was fired the deputies were facing the South but a it a it a they were shooting East and West and bring in a Low n a Man Here and there. Flu n the trouble began 1 was behind the deputies but when they lie inn to turn i feared for my own safely and fled Aero the str it and look Refuge behind the Fence in front one the houses. About thl time the firing stopped end i cume out on the re a Ltd again Anil is the deputies moved Utsy i Rati Down the Roud to the Culvert Ivha ire a not i nil or men were lying nil gave what assistance i could in a Quot string for those who were alive. Many to my also give assist once in binding up the woun�1 the Quot unfortunate men. Would gladly forget. Quot tin scene along the Road and on the Hill a Cros the car track 1 will never forged. To describe it Toubl for me Lee impossible. I Hope that i will never Nee a similar one. After a Lime assistance arrived and the a Lead and wounded were taken to Hazleton on wagons and the electric no one could lie found who remembered having heard sheriff Martin give the order to fire. The deputies it los a Hargad their piece evidently Imine Dot Cly after the Man who ran toward the sheriff fired. He was Iden med As Samuel Price Hazleton. Borne the bullets belied in he Walls a school hour Quot which stands on the Hill about one Hundred Yards from trolley a met. A straight line drawn from the school building would strike trolley strict shout one Hundred Yards behind the Point w h re the. Deputies were lined up when they Facciol the oncoming striker. This prove that there was More shooting than the first Point Blank vol by. For the men must have turned it least half Way round in firing at the fleeing stalk a it is to get within Range the school House. The weapons used by the deputies were Winchester Rulle Ami riot guns. The former sent bullets through the mlle those they struck and in a Quot a Quot Lnu tunes the sume Bullet probably injured two or thru get men. The riot guns a lid even More work. A special Carl Ridge Buckshot 1 in them and they Are intended Only for use at Long Range. At it reasonable distance the result that follow the use the riot gun Are not serious for the charge Hub shot a Parati and Only a few particles Are Apt to a enter a per songs body at Short Range their work is frightful. To close were the deputies to the strikers when the first vol la y was fired that the entire charge Hult Klint entered the body the person lined at tearing great blk it Eding gaps in the flesh. The men now in Tho Hazleton Hospital who Are certain log la it it wore nearly All wounded with the riot guns. The Only weapons found on the bodies the dead and wounded were a few penknives. The two boys who walked ahead the strikers wore found Send after the firing and Censed. The y were Side by Side and evidently fell when the first Volley was tired. A night terror. After the shooting and the departure the victims Latte mar in in n fever excitement. When the trouble Curr Quot a the strikers were on their Way to the Colliery Clavon i a Rdv a at the nth end trolley Street to try and induce the men to join them. They or inn Lxix at Harwood nil Vicinity about two Miles South this City during the morning and went to one Calvin la Ardyce s collieries at West Hazleton. Where sheriff mar ten Turki a to them and urged them to disperse. There was some Little excitement there and one shot was fired by n Deputy. No one was i Jurail. However. Eyvhon the strikers left West Hazleton they to fused to heed the warnings the sheriff and cont nut cd on their Tenn a to i Utt Lucr. Hearing this. Sheriff Martin put his men on a trolley car and started for that place also reaching there some time before the men. After Nightfall the Rumor reached Tho Hamlet that a mob men had Stur Teil from Audon Pleil and Harwood and Lattymer for their destination the Objio to being to Burn the houses and or Vakar and kill the inhabitants the place out revenge for the afternoons terrible work. To authentic seemed the Rumor that the officials the Pardee collieries told the people to flee and furl she gtd wagons to transport the old and infirm to place safety. Most the for Len speaking population spent the night hiding in the mountains. While the English speaking rest hints walked to Freeland six mile away to Harleigh or Over in bulb a Valley. One House in Fri Eland sheltered nearly fifty the refugees. Borne the women were so terror stricken that they could not be induced to remain in laity no a saturday night either although they had the thirteenth regiment camped at their doors.

In wond is the inane nearly All the men who Wigt re killed und the people that plat e were frantic for revenge. Cool Heads among the leaders the strike prevented them from leaving the Vicinity their Home. At Hazleton Jum Iton the depot the Delaware 8u�iu�-Han-na and Schuylkill Railroad was broken into by biters and reduced to a wreck. It was these occurrences coupled with the wild rumours caused such urgent messages for tramps to to sent on from Hazleton Friday night.
