of a prospective settlement of the wage
question at Columbus, the aspect of the
miners' strike and its attendant difficul
ties along the line of the Cleveland. Lor
raine and Wheeling, particularly in this
county, grows steadily worse, and what
was three days ago a local outbreak at
the southern terminus has now spread
over 200 miles, every foot of which 6eems
to be threatened by the all pervading
spirit of lawlessness. Monday afternoon
Sheriff Doll sent a long dispatch to Gov
ernor McKinley, asking for troops at
once to assist in maintaining order. At
Midvale the strikers stopped a coal train
and deliberately burned the bridge ahead
of it. It will be impossible to replace
this bridge inside of three or four days,

tion of the line will be abandoned.

region that men cannot be hired to risk
their lives as track walkers, and the road
is practically unguarded. Governor
McKinley has notified Sheriff Doll that
his request for the transfer of militia to
the storm center of the county will be
granted, and that a sufficient force will
be ordered to this city at once. In spite
of all the danger and the difficulties en
countered, three trains were sent to
