Deputy Sheriff's Fire Into the Ranks of the Rioters—Eleven of Them Killed and Many Wounded. TWO PITCHED BATTLES. GKEEXSBURG, Pa., April 2.—The coke strike at Morewood has culminated in two bloody riots, in which eleven of the rioters were killed and fifty or more wounded. The strikers to the number of 300 gathered about midnight and after spending 1 some time in inflammatory talk started for the company's stables at Morewood, reaching 1 there about 3 o'clock a. m. None of the rioters would heed the deputies' entreaties and at once made a rush for them. In self- defense tha deputies opened fire and killed eight and wounded twenty-one of the Hungarian strikers. At 9 o'clock another riot was precipitated, in which three more Huns were killed and about twenty-five wounded, some of whom will, it is thought, die. The sheriff and two deputies arrived horns on the 9 o'clock train, having- two of the rioters in custody, one of whom was wounded in the leg. Both were lodged in jaiL All of the killed were Poles or Slavs except Binero, who was an Italian. None of them were naturalized. The names of the wounded are not obtained. All are foreigners. PITTSBURGH, Pa., April 2.—The deputies who took part in the riot at Morewood were all full grown, experienced men, and they were aimed to the teeth. A more deliberate arrangement for contemplated trouble was never made. Wednesday night Superintendent Pickard summoned his deputies and told them that a raid was contemplated on the works. He formed them into a line and examined the firearms of each one. He then presented each man with a Winchester rifle, drilled th em in the use of the weapon and ordered th em on duty. T\'hen they were retiring Superintendent Pickard said: 'Twill be in command. I have received positive information that our works are to to raided. I have promised protection to our^ien and I must give it to them. When the raiders come, obey me. Fire the first shot into the air. If the raiders do not retreat, fire tho second shot and keep on firing while you have ammunition. Protect the company's property, protect the men at work and protect your own lives. Tho man in my employ who runs I will shoot dead on the spot. Any man who is not willing to accept my terms will please drop into the rear and I wjjl send him home under guard." No one dropped back. All the deputies looked grim and serious and awaited further orders. "Is everybody satisfied'?" asked the superintendent. "Yes, yes," rang out all along the line. Each man was supplied with twenty-six cartridges, and under the command of the superintendent were marched to a convenient point. All night long the strikers were preparing for. the raid. Delegations headed by drum corps marched to and fro to places of rendezvous. An occasional pistol shot in the distance was accepted as a mysterious signal. Now and then a rocket flashed into the air and from an adjoining hilltop a swinging light could -be seen. The guards did not know what these signals meant. They were accepted as evidences of danger, however, and the people at and about the various works did not retire during the night. It is said that the miners were prepared to blow up the mine at Morewood. Such is the latest development of the affair. There were three parties of the strikers. One came from Stoncrville. A railway watchman then saw a large crowd of the strikers, 'pass. They were very noisy and were cheering and shouting as they came along. They had drums and were constantly beating them. Another party left Morewood early~ in the night and marched to this place. Here they were met .by the party. from the mines around here. A meeting was held, and it agreed to .take some plan of action. It was after this meeting that the march was made on the works. Some of the strikers say that they had no intention of doing ' any damage. They simply marched to the works to intimidate those who were at work. Before the officers fired on the mob a considerable amount of the company's property had been destroyed. An attempt was also made to cut the telegraph and telephone wires so that the governor could not be notified of the anarchistic work contemplated. Sheriff Glawson at once telegraphed Gov.'Pattison for the militia! as he feared the Huns and other rioters, who number thousands, would arm themselves, overpower the deputies and kill them all before they could realize the situation. Gov. Pattison acted with 'gratifying promptitude. He has ordered out two regiments—the Tenth of Washington, and the. Eighteenth, of Pittsburgh—to assemble immediately and to proceed at once to the scene of the murderous riots in the coke regions. If the belligerent Huns show a disposition to resist lawful authority they will be shot down like dogs. . . The cause of the uprising: among the strikers was the activity ;displayed at the Morewood works Wednesday. The miners were at work dWyyancf five cars of'"coke were ped during the day. This made the kers desperate, and an attack was determined on. The rioters evidently expected to surprise the deputies who were defending the works. It is openly declared by the strikers that they will have revenge for their companions. They have for the time being transferred their attention from the plants to the deputies, whom they vowthey will kill. They say at the same time that the* works will surely be razed. Word has been passed to the strikers all over the region that the shooting was without pr6vocation; that no violence had been offered, and their anathemas on hearing these reports are deep and strong.

ISDIAXAPOI.IS, Ind., April 8. — The aid state board of agriculture, through Sylvester Johnson, its treasurer, has made a formal demand for the .$100,000 appropriated to it a couple of years ago.

The secretary and auditor of state have been trying to make up the new board. When the two officers got together to appoint a board it was found that there were four districts without applicants. The men who were willing to serve in' three of these districts were found in a few days, but a search for a man in the one vacant district so far has been in vain.
