Weib City, Kan., July 22. The ex.
petted crisis has come in the Kansas
miners' strike. Miners who were wil
ling to work quietly and peaceably
have been attacked by the strikers and
Mood bas been shed. The feeliug
which has been growing more and
more bitter for several days culminated
today in a fierce battle at Clements'
pit, one mile south of this city. Ail
the forenoon there were mutterings of
the approaching storm and the feelini:
was universal that serious trouble was
Just before noon a band of the
strikers beaded by 100 women, which
had been marching to the various strip
pita, reached Clements' pit and a com
mittee tried to persuade the miners
working there to quit work. This the)
refused to do and when the committee
ao reported the entire body of marcher
moved an the works to force the meti
The strip were ready for them, and
when they passed the trespass line they
war fired upon and a general battle
ensued in which Winchesters, pistols
and clnbs were used. Over 100 shot
were fired, and it is nothing short of
miracle lhat nobody was killed. On?
man was injured in the forehead,
another in the leg, a boy was ahot i
the foot, and a woman got a ball
through the arm. None of the injuries
are fatal, and it is believed that none
of them are dangerous. A number ot
men on both sides were badly beaten
up with clubs and stones.
As a result of the battle the men in
the Clements' strip pit w re routed b.
the strikers and forced to flee for their
lives, pursued by the howling mob,
which would have lynched them bid
they been captured. There is an enclos
ure around the pit which was broken
Into by tiie strikers.
The owner of the atrip, Clements, his
son and a mo named Big Dick Heed
are said to be the ones who did the
shooiing and they have t 'en them,
elves up and were: run out of the
coui.ty fur safe keeping.
The excitement was intense after the
shooting and it was feared thai matters
would become worse, but a prominent
striker, George It. Fulton, made the
crowd a speech in which he advised
them to keep cool and counselled
It is rumored that a quantity of fire
arms have been received here tonight.
The exciiement is still at fevirht-at
and tliere is every probabiJty that a
farther demonstration will be made
during the night.
Baaala will Support Franca.
Paris, July 22. A statement, is pub
lished to the effect that the Bussia am
bassador to France has given assur
ance to that country that Russia will
support France onall.poims involved
In the Siamese difficulty. It is further
said the Russia fleet in Chinese waters
is under orders to proceed to the gulf
of Siam to support the French and to
protect French residents of Siam. (t
is expected to arrive tnere soon.
A dispatch from Bangkok states
that the Siamese court is greatly agi
tated. Preperaiions are apparently
under way for the departure of the
king and court from the capital. . lie
ports ot the intention of the king to
leave Baukok spread among the pop
ulace and caused much excitement.
Tbedl8patch adds it is stated that
popular agitation in favor of France
was started in the province of Battam
burg and troops were sent to put down
the sedition. -
The senate today passed unanimous
ly a resolution approving in every re
spect the attitude of the government
in the Siamese affair.
London, July 22. A special cabinet
meeting was summoned in Downiug
street. There was a full attendance.
France's demand on Siam was discuss
ed at length and eventually instructions
for the marguis of Dufferin, Britsh
ambassador to France, were formula
ted and approved.
Immediately after the meeting Earl
Bote berry, secretary of state for for
legn affairs, communicated with the
admiralty in regard to the disposition
of the fleet in Astatic waters. Lata in
the afternoon special orders went dis
patched by ths admiralty to Vice Ad
miral Fremanile, commander ln-chief
of the Chinese division. The facts,
together with the sudden cancelling of
the Marquis of Dufferin's leave of ab
sence, are regarded as hardly In ha
mony with the official predictions of a
perfectly amicable settlement with
Trance of the Siamese difficulty. Even
Knot atarmed by the course of France,
the government Is believed to realise
that the 8iamese affair is fraught with
snost serious poeibtlities, for which im

Topeka, July 27. The strike situa

ed as so serious by Coventor Lewelling
and his advisors that eleven companies

three hours' notice
The orders were telegraphed by Ad

Lieutenant Govorner, who is the major
?eneral of the Kansas militia, after
on fe rente of tluve hours wi h Govern
r Lewelling. The lieutenant gover
nor arrived from the seen of the strike
early last evening and was immediately
closeted with Governor Lewelling, to

situation as he viewed it. The govern

aver to Major General Daniels, witli
instructions to act as bis judgment
might direct. Accordingly General
Daniels issued the orders placing the
eleven companies under 'ms. By

aptains of all the companies included

Lieutenant (iovernor Daniels stated
this morning that he regarded the situ

Continuing, the report says: "At

The report discourses upon labor
troubles in general and says they are
lue to vicious legislation, inspired by
mnital and against labor, and con
jlndes as follows: But the methods by
which these wrongs must be righted,
by which labor must be restored to
its cons-utional rights and to its God

D. C. July 2a.-Con
finnation coates from New York ef
the story reported but. geueraily : dis
credited here a few days ago, that Mr.
Cleveland is dissatisfied with Secretary
Carlisle's course at the head of the
troiitftiry department, it is claimed
the president has come to rega:d (.ar
tiste as a failure in his present capacity,
and that since the former's departure
from Washington covert inquires have
been made regarding prominent New
York financiers as to their ability to
take charge of tLe office. The infor
mation comes from a New l'orker whe
is believed to be entirely trustworthy,
and is known to be m a position to
learn what is going on behind the
scenes. It is said that the first dis
agreeable thing to grate on the presi-
dentV feelings was Carlile's appoint
ment of his son, Logan, as chief clerk
of the department. The personal senti
ments of Uie president for the secretary
continue to be as cordial as ever. So
for no cloud has obscured the horizon
of their social relations. Mr. Cleveland
trying to be circumspectly consider
ate of Mr. Carlisle's feelings, and it is
predicted as a change is made in the
ollice of secretary of the treasury by
the appointment of another man, Car
lile's departure will be effected upon a
plausable excuse that will be altogeth
er gratifying to him. In this con
nection, it Is rumored that the presi
dent may appoint him to fill the va
cancy on the supreme bench occasion
ed by the death of Justice Blanch ford.

AU day there had been muttering
among the friends of the murdered
man and at an early hour tonight a small
crowd collected In the rear of the Wind
sor hotel en Market street. It grew in
numbers until there were seTeral hun
dred determined men.
la silent and military order the erowd
marched tbrough the business portion
of the city past the city jail and to the
county jail across Cherry creek. Here
a demand was made for the Italian
from Jailer Crews. He refused te give
up his prisoner when the mob which
was well provided with picks and iron
bars began an attack on the front door
of ths jail. The building Is new and
was thought strong enought to resist
any attacks which might be made upon
It. Gradually the cro'vd grew until
probably lO.OOtJ people surrounded the
jail. Sheriff Burchineil was outside in
the crowd trying to prevent violence
but no attention was paid to bis com
mands or entreaties.
Captain Crew, in charge of the jail,
instructed the guards to fire over the
head of the mob to awe it, but ao at
tention was paid to his !ire:ig. After
a few hours' digging and hammering
entrance was made to the eorridor.
Captain Crews then saw that lie bad
the alternative of shooting down a few
or surrendering the Italian and be
chose the latter. Arata was taken out
to a neighboring tree, strung op and
his body riddled with ballets.
In the melee in the jail ono membea
of the mob was shot, in the leg, but not
dangerously wounded. The vengeance
of the mob did not end with the shoot
ing. Tbe body was taken down, drag

The breast was filled with bullet holes,
and the body covered with blood and

up, the body was cut down and taken
to the police station. A crowd still
throngs tiie Btreets and the excitement
is at a high pitch.
