Information has just been received that the strikers have been holding a secret meeting this morning ;it which an attack on the military camp was planned. The presence of tho armed force has inflamed the strikers to a de groo of heat that cannot be checked and it is the general opinion that a conflict between the miners and the sol diers will surely occur. Many of the soldiers will not hesitate to begin hostilities if opportunity offers, for the humiliation of tho last twenty-four hours has been too much to bear. The miners have repeatedly threatened them, and such a feeling of enmity between the two sides has arisen that a clash seems inevitable. Three Thousand Desperate Striken. Officers and men now number 800, but there are 8,000 desperate strikers here and more are likely to come from Spring Valley and towns west.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind., May SO.—The miners who boarded a Big Four train ut Grant and came to this city Friday evening are still on top of the box cars where they were sidetracked by the iompany. They insist that they will ,vait until the company takes them to Pivna, where they were called to join Illinois strikers in an attempt to persuade the men at work there to join the strike. Superintendent Neel, of the Big Four, says that he will not start the train west unless the Terre Haute authorities remove the men from the cars. Mayor Ross has telegraphed him thatas the company brought the men here it ught to take them away, and he ad- mos that tho train be moved to. avoid further trouble.

Among other things he says "In Rflvcrnl places mine properly has b destroyed, nil'.romls Interfered with mill life jeopardized and lost.

CKIITI.K CUKBK, Col., May 20.— > 7 ews has just reached here that about midnight the strikers seized an engine and ears at Victor and proceeded to Wilbour, 10 miles down the Florence & Cripple Creek railroad, where the Denver deputies were encamped.

Members of the miners' union positively deny that any men were killed by the blowing- up of the shaft-house at the Strong mine Friday. They say they took precautions to see that all the miners came out before applying the torch to the fuse, and account for the missing men by saying they left camp in the night. UlHnriiieil by Women, The strikers, 'who are ready to do bnttle with the armed deputies if any attempt is made to reopen the mjnes with nonunion men, gave the credit of disarming eleven miners and seven deputies, which was accomplished Friday, to two women, and the latter are receiving all the honor duo to heroism. The bunk at the Independence mine had been' occupied by nonunion miners for over a week. The sheriff has sent guards to protect them and there they remained in the very heart of the strike district. All efforts to force an evacuation had been ineffectual. According to the story told by the strikers, the women . sought admission to tlte building and were allowed to enter. Then they flourished a revolver each and commanded the men to throw up their hands. The men acceded, and the striking miners, who were near at hand, appeared. The eighteen men were disarmed and their arms forfeited. They were marched by the strikers toward Cripple Creek and ordered not to appear in camp again. Gov. Walte with the Striker*. DENVEK, May SO.—Gov. Waite does not hesitate to decjjire that his sympathies are with the striking miners at Cripple Creek. He asked Attorney General Englely for an opinion as to the right of a sheriff to obtain an armed force from another county than that in which he is an officer. The attorney general has returned a written opinion *x> the effect that "the organization of an armed force of men in Arapahoe county to march to or enter Kl Paso county, for the purpose alleged, is conspiracy to do or aid in an unlawful act, and all persons members of sucli armed force or cooperating to organize, or to send or transport the same into one county from another, are guilty of a conspiracy to do an unlawful act, and the deputizing of such men to act as deputy sheriffs by the sheriff of El Paso coun ;y is a violation of law." The attorney general adds that "the chief executive of the state should preserve the peace of the commonwealth, even if it should be- :ome necessary to call out th« entire military force of the state. If the peace cannot be preserved otherwise, martial law should be declared in the particular district, and all violators of public order, including the said armed force, should be sum- narily dealt with, that the dignity ol ihe state may be maintained invioV ate." Will Stop tho Bow. Gov. Waite said: "It la my duty to itop this row.
