No other steps ln the matter are likely likely to be taken Just at this time, as Information Information has been received that all of tbe parties to the latest feudal trouble who were not killed or mortally wounded wounded have , been placed under arrest by the county authorities. . .The Governor realises that all tbe troops In the service service could not prevent the Clay mountaineers mountaineers from picking one another off In the remote- remote- rations of the county, or even ln the town of Manchester, and that It Is unnecessary to Send them there except to protect the courts. The session In Ciay does not begin until some time next month, and no orders will likely be Issued to the troops before that time. The Governor expects but little from this session of court, but feels that he has done everything possible possible permitted by the present laws of the State to restore order -in -in Clay.
