The guards nt shaft No. 47 had u pltcUvd battle with a inch of strikers at ID-.IiO o'clock tonight. The mob approached the mine quietly und llred Into the shaft. Deputy Sheriff nrant , who was on patrol guard , re turned the llro and calling Iho other guards defended the mine against the mob. Over u hundred shots were llrcd , but none of the deputies Injured. When Iho mob saw that the guards were standing iholr ground they lied. It is not known how many , If any , of the mob were shot. Shaft No.17 of the Kansas ft Texas j company started up under armed guards with a full force of men. A large crowd of Ridkers and women ( 'uUicrod In the vicinity of the shaft anil were planning to make a raid upon the shaft when Sheriff Arnold ap peared upon the scene. Ho addressed the crowd , tolling them that although his sym pathies were with them ho was bound to do Ills duty. Ho had placed armed guards at the mines anil had ordered them to protect the properties and Iho men ut work upon them. If ho found thut his deputies were powerless lo guard Iho properly in Iho county und the lives of Its citizens ho would so inform the governor und the executive could put W)0 ) militia upon the ground In. three hours. It was useless to altack the men al work , ho said , nnd ho ordered Iho mob lo disperse. The mob obeyed Iho order and there was no disturbance. The Strip pit men were nil ut work today nnd , so far as heard from , were not molested by the strikers. Now thut the sheriff has shown lhat ho can and will guard the work ing miners other minus will start up. Shaft No. IS of the Kansas & Texas company and two of the Kellh & Perry shafts will be Blurted in Ihe morning.

There Is no longer doubt that the Central Coal und C'gko com pany and Ihe Kansas & Texas Coal com pany Intend to bring an end lo Iho slriko in their mines In southeastern Kansas in the next few days. The Central Cole and Coke company has nearly finished the building of stockades around its mines at Weir City and Scaminon , nnd has built bouses for the workmen within the walls , and Ibis morning President U. II. Kellh told u reporter that the mines at both places would bo opcraled before the end of Iho week. "What day will you begin work ? " ho asked. ' ' "I don't know.

"Some of our old men will bo given n chance to go lo work again if they feel so disposed. The -others , tbo men who have given us most of the trouble , we don't want nnd we won't have. Then there are some men coming from Colorado nnd some men coming from the south. It is easy enough to got the men. " "Are the men who como -from the south negroes ? " "I guess they arc. Negroes make good miners and what wo want Is men who will dig thu coal. " "Will they be furnished with the arms thut are stacked nl Springfield and else where ? " "Wo are not going to pub men into our mines co bo shot down like catlle. There is no use trying to disguise the facts. Wo have no reason lo believe thut they will be pro tected by the slate. Our experience with the stale nnd county ofllcers has been such that wo can expect lllllo from Ihoni. Wo must do something. It would bu folly and "it would bo cruelty on our part lo put work- ingmcn in those mines without protection. When Iho miners go Inside of Iho slockades Ihey will bo prepared lo defend themselves ncalnst attack. " The Kansas it Texas company is preparing for worlc. too , but neither company-will teli when work will begin.

[ Special Tele gram to Tin : BUB. ] A llro * broico out Friday about two miles from hero , on the Buffalo side of the old T. W. ranch in the red hills , where J. G. Oliver it Co's. sheep camp is lo cated. The news was brought in by some wool freighters from the cam ] ) , in the aftnr- noon , and Just about sundown the flames were plainly visible on the divide. As tlio darkness increased , the burning prairie pre sented a beautiful , but terrible appearance. A glowing ridge of lire extended for about ten or twelve miles from south to north , and was seen to bo advancing with great rapid ity , while every moment great tongues of Ilamo leaped up as tlio lire caught the long grass around some rocky eminence. It seemed as if the llro would make its way down to the meadows and hayliclds of Cle'ar creek , and Messrs. Conrad and Hlne dispatched a force of IIU.MI to their ranch to aid In lighting the llro if necessary. U. J. Daley and Danny Mitchell hitched up a light rig , and taking a largo tub of water nnd about a halo of old gunny sucks , started 1 for the scene of operations. From their account one of the most fertile sources of danger lies in the buifnlo chips that are scattered around In such profusion. These retain the lire for a long time , and their smouldering ashes are liable to bo taken by any high wind to start the llro In a new place. Another dllliculty is the sago brush , wiilch cannot bo beaten out us easily as the grass , and thu glowing stump * of which con tinue to throw oil' sparks long after thu llro has passed. Any shift in the wind is thus apt to carry thorn onto new ground. M. T. Hodman and his whole crew were out to defend their pastures , and doubtless every ono on the crcelc was on the alert. When the party from Buffalo returned the llro had died or burnt out along the wcstnnd I north sides of the divide , but was steadily advancing to the east and northeast , 'lUiis morning it Is still seen to bo burning , though : at u greater distance. The red hills , the scene of the conflagration.is onoof the favor ite winter ranges lor the cattle of this vicin ity , and the loss of the grass this year , when almost all the range feed Is short and scarce , will cause considerable trouble.

' The Union Pacific company hns not ap plied , for tiny restraining order on the Stale Board of Transportation , nor am 1 aware that it will do so. "At the mecllngof the railway prcsldcnls In Chicago on July 11) ) It was agreed that all the Nobrrska railways would adopt a schedule of rales In conformity with Iho new law , which will be Hi-force on and after August 1.

These tickets are pur porlcd lo bo round-trip World's fair tickets. They arc , as a matter of fact , one-way tick ets from Cleveland to St. Louis , via Chicago and Indianapolis.
