The coal miners' strike iiK Ten
nessee is Htill on. All sorfk of
rumors are prevalent as to t',e
number of miners who are ready"4u
attack. Some estimate the number
of rioters as running tip into the
thousands, and the general opinion
is thai the woods are full of them.
There are fully 20,0tK) reHolttte men,
inured to hardship and fatigue,
many of them veterans of the late
war, and uhoiild they break out in
to open rebellion and defy the
troops sent to quell the disturb
ances it will prove u very difficult
body of men to handle, familiar as
they are with all the mountain re
-treats, passe and by-paths. Con
servative people think they will
hesitate to oppose the troops, their
main object seeming to be to create
a public sentiment which will de
stroy any favor which exists toward
the convict lease system. The
sherilf, who is in sympathy with
the strikers, will not under any cir
cumstances enforce the law, ami
openly states that he will serve no
warrants on the miners.

Asiii.ANl, Neb., Aug. 1. The
country north of here is consider
ably excited over a shooting affair
which occurred some five miles
north of here. Henry Heed, a
farmer, with a young man by the
name of Hall, attended the Grand
Army of the Republic reunion at
Greenwood last week. A day or
two later Hall told Mrs. Heed that
her husband had been to Green
wood flirting with some girls.
Mrs. Heed told her hasband, who
swore that he would shoot Hall.
Yesterday as Heed was passing his
house Hall shot three times at him,
none taking effect. Hall came to

al Coal Creek:
In a decisive battle yesterday the
miner who held Coal Creek were
d .eaied and have surrendered un
conditionally. The brunt of the
lighting fell on the citizens who
responded to the call of the herilf
and accompanied as a posse the
state troops under General Carnes
as faras Olfutts. That station was
reached the evening before and
there the posse left the cars, intend
ing to march on and attack the
miners on the flank, while General
Carnes pushed on with the train
and engaged the rebels from the
After leaving the train the posse
marched rapidly across the country
and hill to the top of Walden's
ridge. On this mountain they were
within three-fourths of a mile of
Camp Anderson. They reached
this point on the mountain about
10 p. in. Here they halted and lay
on their nrms. Many of them had
had nothing to eat since breakfast
Thursday and there was not a drop
of water to be had, but with true
courage they waited to go to Fort
Anderson. About 3 o'clock in the
morning a terrible rain storm came
up tyViich continued until noon.
When this rain began to fall the
men were somewhat refreshed
They had no blankets nor the least
shelter and they were largely men
of means and unused to hard labor.
Just at the break of day the offi
cers called their force into line.
The militiamen under the com
mand of Colonel Woolford took the
lead and the squad of business
men of Knoxville formed the rear
and in the pouring rain tliry
started to Camp Anderson by n cir-
cutious route of two miles. This
was done to avoid a large body of
miners who occupied the little nar
row pass between them and the
camp, and the force had marched,
but a little way when they were
halted by a disturbance in the rear.
Through the fog and rain they saw
from twenty-five to seventy-five
miners. These fellows dodged tie-
hind trees and rocks and opened
