A FATAL KNCOUNTKll. FAYF.TTF. CITY, Pa,, May 24,—A battle occurred at daybreak between Washington Run deputies and about l.SOU strikers. Eight strikers wero killed and sixteen wounded. The strikers have made two ineffectual attempts this week to bring out the men working 1 , but were not successful. Arrangements were made Wednesday whereby the strikers from tlu> fourth pool would meet the Vough men and attack Washington Run in a body. Seven hundred men left here at 11 o'clock Wednesday uiffht and were joined by other squads from nearby points. The Vough men were principally Hungarians and Slavs, and numbered about 1,000 men. DvputloH Hreln tho nattlo, The strikers, headed by the Smithton brass band, inarched along the public road from the works. The deputies, who hud been reinforced during the niR-ht, were fortified behind two box curs. As soon ns the men turned into the road fronting- tho works, u deputy stepped forward and shot a man who had stumbled and fallen into n ditch, killing 1 him instantly. This was tho signal for a general fusillade from the deputies. Three times they fired into the air and then discharged their Winchesters into the body of strikers who had not left the public road. Three fell dead and two wounded. Tho strikers fired but a few shots and then broke and ran for a wheat field above the works. The deputies continued firing as long- as the fleeing strikers were in range, John Troy, fatally injured, was taken in charge by Sheriff Wilhelm, who headed the deputies. The men killed were all foreigners, principally Huns. Fired Without Provocation. An eye-witness to the battle said the men reached there at 4 o'clock a. m. Additional deputies were summoned from Dawson and Vanderbilt. Tho informant states that Deputy JjOwrey shot a man through the arm, then when he fell placed his Winchester at the man's temple and killed him. The men made no disturbance of any kind and tho deputies flred on them without provocation, as soon us they lined up along'the roadside. There were eighty deputies and all continued to shoot as long as the men kept in ran^e. This informant saw four dead in the road and three in tho wheat field. Loadorn Kof unc to Talk. The labor leaders are paralyzed at the turn affairs have taken. They refuse to talk about it. It.is thought no more attempts will be made to bring out those workmen unless a small army is raised. The miners are at work as usual, and the works continue running. Deputies-are patroling the place, and no one is allowed in the vicinity of the works. It is reported that the sheriff will at once make wholesale arrests of the loaders of tho men for inciting them to riot and unlawful assemblage. All the Dead Were Striker*. Among the wounded are three deputies, while the killed were all strikers. When the workmen came to the strikers in the public roads they were asked to go home. The workmen were about to comply with the command when the deputies rushed into the midst of the men, got possession of the workmen, and marched them to tha pit. In this part of the performance a deputy sheriff fired a shot which opened the battle. There was volley after volley flred by each side at close range. The strikers stood their ground while their comrades were falling one by one, but their ammunition giving out and it requiring too much time to load the shotguns and rifles they wero forced to give up the fight and flee to escape the rain of bullets from the fifty Winchesters. It is said the strikers were advancing on the line of deputies when the latter fired the first shot. Many strikers were arrested by deputies. They bad guns in their possession and were equipped with ammunition. They are held prisoners and will be brought to the jail here. The arrests occasioned no trouble, the strikers giving up willingly.

In this city which has been working" •"*» several days with about thirty men, was visited at 1:80 o'clock a. in* bj a delegation ot strikers from Duquoin and St. Johns mines. The miners attacked and badly damaged the works. Tho shaft was filled with loose material, such as trucks, ears and tools.

Sheriff Helm telegraphed Gov, Alt- sking for troops to assist deputy sheriffs in resisting the strikerj reply was received from Oov.,. in which tho latter refused to' order out the state troops, but agreed to furnish arms and ammunition to the sheriff. The governor claimed ho was not satisfied that Sheriff Holm had exhausted his moans to overcome tho mob, and advised that more deputies be sworn in. The striking miners left here on foot at 10 o'clock this forenoon for Odin. They said they would close the mines there, and would use force if necessary. Sheriff Helm and posse followed a few minutes later on a special train and will endeavor to prevent destruction of the Odin mines. A large number of the Duquoin men are negroes.

They wero met at the railway depot by Sheriff Helm and his deputies with a number of the local militia. The sheriff appealed to the strikers to disperse peaceably and return to Duquoin. They refused and insisted ou marching to the mines and driving out the men at work there. The sheriff ordered his deputies to charge on the mob. With fixed bayonets the deputies advanced on the strikers, who fled in every direction. A few minutes later they congregated in the western part of the village and prepared to give battle to the deputies. Some desultory firing 1 was heard in that vicinity, but it was caused by the deputy sheriffs firing into the air with a view of intimidating the strikers. The sheriff has succeeded in capturing several of the ring-leaders of the strikers, but others wore selected to take their place and the discipline is maintained. Thounumln of Men Aro Oat.
