Sw York, March 18. A special
f om Vancouver, B. C, says:
Carl Slommerfelt. a German, who
was a passenger on board tbe steam
er Lees, which ha arrived here from
th Lynn canal, brought tbe news that
a bntle bad been fought between
American and Canadian miners a 'ew
miles off tbe Dilton trail; four men
are reported to have been killed oot
right and a number of othe-s are said
to have been seriously wounded.
When the lien min ng law of Brit'sh
Columbia was enforced a few months
ago the American miners leit Atl n, tne
new Canadian gold dia'rict, and struck
north. They found a short distance
ff the Dal i on trail, on the Porcupine
iver, a district rich in placer gold. It
waa generally conceded that the new
lacer were In American territory er.d
be miners vowed that no Canadian
hou'd a'ake a claim. Some Canadian
mounted policemen, however, did stake
ciaims In the American territory and
ustifled tbe;r act by moving tbe Can
adian fl ig from Mount Pleasant, on the
trail, ao an to make the line take in a
rich part of the dia'rict.
They were fol owed by at lest fotty
Caoad an miners, who all located good
claims. A fortnight ago about 100
American min r held a meeting and
deci led to Send notices to all Canadians
toleavrtthe country within five day.
Tbe notices were sent out, but no heed
as paid to them. Blummerfelt, who

weeks ago, cays:
.'Early on the morning of the sixth
day the American miners met and pro
ceeded to the Canadian camp. 1 don t
believe they intended bloodahed, al
though they were fully armed. Before
they could even state tne ooject oi
their visit some one, I don't know
from which party, fired a shot, and
then everyone seemed to he snooting.
Several rounds were fired and four men,
1 was told, were killed outright an
American and three Cansdian.
'The battle was very brief, and re
sulted in the Canadians, about fifty in
number, flying acros the border. The
