MOT AMONG MINERS
THREE MEN SHOT DEAD AND A
BOY FATALLY WOUNDED.
Too Much Liquor and Appearance o
Depuv Sheriff at a Mass Meeting of
Strikers Causes TroubleMob Tries
to Storm Jail.
Johnstown, Pa., April 17. Thrco
mon liavo boon shot (load, a boy fatal
ly wounded and a mining engineer,
Eugene Delaney, seriously Injured In
a riot at Wlndber among tho striking
coal miners. The placo is In a state
of terror. Sheriff Bagloy has been
summoned and an appeal has been
made to Governor Pennypacker for
troops. Several others or tho rioters
havo sustained Blight injuries. Tho
dead men and most of tho Injured are
foreigners. There is much dyna
mite stored here and it Is feared tho ,
strikers will resort to t.io explosive
The names of the dead men wero (
Peitro Martini, Paul Zills, leaders of
tho rioters; Antonio Mazuca and a
twelve-year-old boy, Charles Foster.
An eye-witness of the riot said tho
trouhlo started when Deputy Sheriff
W. H. McMullen went to tho mass
meeting held by the striking miners
in a wood at tho edge of tho town.
Many of the miners had been drinking
and the sight of the deputy made
them furious. Tho officer was quick
ly surrounded by miners, who threat
ened to kill him. McMullen, realizing
that his situation was desperate, fled
for his life, finding refuge in the house
of Councilman Charles Davis. Prac
tically every man who had gone to
tho mass meeting Joined in the chase
after tho fleeing deputy, nnd soon
after tho latter had entered the Davis
house, it was surrounded by a mob or
2,000 shouting, cursing miners, who
challenged McMullen to como out.
When McMullen failed to appear,
tho mob attacked tho houso and lit
erally wrecked It. Tho deputy sheriff
was roughly handled, but again man
aged to escape. Tho members of tho
DavlB family fled to the homes of
neighbors for shelter. Other deputies
who had been on duty guarding1, the
property of tho coal company had
been notified of tho trouble by this
time and twenty of the rioters wero
landed In tho lockup at Windbor, Tho
mob, headed by Paul Zills, then
marched to tho center of tho town
and prepnrcd to storm the Jail and
relcaso the rioters. At a signal the
mob began to close in on tho Jail,
shouting to tho deputies to throw
away their guns and glvo up the pris
oners. Tho officers first triod to keep
back tho mob with bayonets, but tho
effort was Ineffectual, and when it bc
camo certain that the little band of
deputies and firemen could not stand
before the howling, infuriated mob,
they opened Are. Those of tho for
eigners who wero closest to the jail
had already begun using knives in the
attempt to disarm tho deputies, while
others flourished revolvers. The dep
uties fired but ono volley, and the for
eigners broke and fled in wild disor
der, leaving thrco of their number
dead in front of the jail. Tho wound
ed who wero able to walk wero hur
ried to their homes, while an am
bulance took tho more seriously hurt
to tho Wlndber hospital. Charles
Foster, the boy that was wounded,
died in the hospital.
OPERATORS STAND PAT.
Anthracite Mine Owners Reject
New York, April IS. A subcommit
tee of presidents of the anthracite
coal carrying railroads and mine oper
ators held a meeting in this city nnd
drew up a letter to President John'
Mitchell or the United Mine Workers
of America, In which tho operators
again declare that there is nothing to
arbitrate except the question whether
there shall be any arbitration. This
reply Is made In response to Presi
dent Mitchell's recent amended propo
sition of arbitration. The presidents
do not, however, refuso point blank
to accept Mr. Mitchell's latest plan.
They assert that all the differences
between the miners and their employ
ers havo been decided by the strike
commission nnd that there Is no rea
bon why another attempt should be
made to arbitrate them.
"Tho fundamental principles re
garding the conduct of tills business
have all been established by tho strike
commission," tho operators declare.
"No reason Is suggested why they
should be retried. We havo no fur
ther suggestions to mane than thosu
contained In our former propositions,
and wo regret that you havo declined
both of them. Wo have nothing fur
ther to offer."
Tho operators aEsert that tho min
ers offer to waive formal recogni'lon
of the miners' union is not material
and declare that the miners' program
would Increase the cost of domestic
sizes of coal $1.20 per ton.
The situation in tho unthraclto coal
regions of Pennsylvania Is perplexing.
Whllo quiet has been universal
throughout the hard coal field, it Is
difficult to forecast what effect the
teply of tho operators to tho miners'
latest proposition will havo upon tho
latter. Tho miners almost to a man
slgnllleil their intention of standing
by President Mitchell, but at the satno
time the operators have been quietly
preparing for the operation of their
