Many Conflicts Between Strikers and Guards—Seventeen Men Reported Killed—A Leader Arrested. LAWLES9NK88 IN PBNN3VLVANIA. UNIONTOWN, Pu,., April 5. —VVednes day was ono of the inokt exciting days ever known Iu the coke reffions. The- northcrn and ceutnil portions of the region were the sceue of continuous battle from early morning. Ten thousand infuriated strikers marched from point to point in the region spreading death and destruction. Uloodier deeds were prevented by the active use of 500 rines in tho hands of determined deputies and special offi- cera At 10 o'clock a. in. the bodies of eight murdered Hungarians were found in the woods near Dawsou by some boys who were going- uuross the fields to school. The men were lying in different sections of the woods and all had bullet holes through their bodies and were more ov less beaten up. Where they came from or by whom they were killed is yet n question, and the discovery is the sensation of the day in the coke region. It is supposed these Hungarians were shot Wednesday afternoon by deputies during an attack on the Broadford works and crawled out into the woods tp die. In the conflict at these works there were volleys of shots fired and one Hungarian was killed outright during the attack. Tho bodies found have been identified as members of this mob. They are still lying in the woods and the authorities refuse to care for them. beveutevn Dead. This makes a total of seventeen dead. The fatalitiei of Wednesday reported before the eight bodi«S mentioned were found, included J. H. Paddock, chief engineer of the Frick company, and a deputy sheriff, name unknown, who were murdered by the strikers, and seven unknown strikers who wore killed by deputy sheriffs and guards. A dozen others were seriously, some probably fatally, wounded. A Mob J,OOU Stroiiff. * The climax of all the troubles of the day was reached Wednesday afternoon when 1,000 armed strikers came down upon the Davidson works of the H. C, Frick Coke company near Counells- ville. The little suttlement in the vicinity of the work*) had been previously undisturbed by the strikers and the men after finishing their day's work were resting at their homes. The workmen were not in sympathy with the strike. The horde of ignorant foreigners pounced down upon them like wild beasts. They first went to the homes of the workmen, and there burned and destroyed property of the company and drove women and children into the fields. J. li. Paddock, chief civil engineer of the Frick Coke company, had walked over from his home in Connellsville to Davidson to ijterview some of the deputy sheriffs who were protecting the coke ovens. After he had satisfied himself that every thing was working satisfactorily he strolled around behind the ovens toward the mouth of the company's mine, W. T. Kennedy, as sistant superintendent of the works, and Coll followed at some distanca They had warned him to be careful Stoned Him to Death. Just as he reached a position under the tipple facing the shaft ho saw a party of Huns in the act ol tearing away a support from tho tramway. The fearless engineer advanced quickly and ordered the men away. Some of them retreated sullenly up the bank with a scowl of anger on their faces. A black-browed striker, with heavy, stooping shoulders, stood his ground. Paddock motioned him away with impatient gesture. At that moment one of the men on the hill threw a stone, striking the engineer on the shoulder. A howl of rage went up from the Huns. They came tearing down like so many demons, with their long hair flying and their eyes on fire. Paddock was thrown violently to the ground. His hend was pounded to pieces with fragtofents of stone. After every spark of life was g-one one of the men'in an ecstasy of rage drew his revolver and ii™ (1 !l shot throu ? h tho dead man's head. The party then mode un auuck on Kennedy and Coll, but tlicv succeeded iu escaping with-only a few" bruises. The rioters luft at once lor the Bradford works ol 1 the same company, "'here the men have also refused to stride. Citizen" Cill'turn tho Murderer,. The report ol Engineer Paddock's murder spread rapidly over the region and within a half hour 100 armed citizens from Connellsville and..vicinity, under tho leadership of County Detective Frank Campbell, started in pursuit. About 8 miles down the Baltimore & Ohio tracks from Connellsville the citizens overtook fifty o< the strikers who were leaving Davidson: A battle en- S and a volley of Bhots were fired from bolt sides. After a desperate struggle the rioters were overpowered and ten ol the leaders were placed under arrest In the conflict one Hun- Parian wan shot through the head and fn«tantl* killed and two other. »«r. mortally" wounded. The ten who were overpowered were handcuffed, tied to gether with ropes and taken to the camp at Connellbvllle. They were brought here at night on a special train over the Baltimore &• Ohio road closely guarded and lodged in jail. The special train was stopped at Dawson on the way up and fifty more rioters were taken aboard. They were captured by a portion of the company of armed citizens which left Connellsville shortly after the murder while on the way to the works of the Mount Pleasant branch. In all there were sixty-four rioters arrestefl and locked up. Anotlior Killed- The larger portion of the mob which visited the Davidson works escaped and went to the JJroad Ford plants of the Frick company. Hero they attempted to renew hostilities, but ran up against forty guards, A skirmish followed during which fifty shots were exchanged, but at such a long distance that there was but one man killed. A deputy shot a Hungarian through, the neck, causing instant death. Fatally Pounded by Women. The wivus and daughters of the strikers are almost as fierce and bloodthirsty as the men. At Trotter, where a mob of 700 strikers were encamped Tuesday night, a man named Andy Milla, who was suspected of sympathizing with the operators, was assaulted by a gaujf of infuriated women and beaten into insensibility. After lying for hours on the road he was found by some friends and curried home, where hn lies dying. More Bloo'Inlied. During an assault Wednesday morning on the deputy sheriffs guarding the Mayfield works of the McClure Coke company a Hun was shot and in- Btantly killed. He was carried away by his companions, and for a time peace was restored. At Donnelly the wives of the striker* went down to the ovens and burned the coats and hats of the workmen and Carried away their tools. The men followed up the attack and there was a lively skirmish with the deputy sheriffs. One of the Huns was shot by Superintendent Felix Boyle, but it is thought that he will recover. Sheriff McCann |of Westmoreland county, was on hand and arrested thirteen of the rioters, but not until one of his deputies had been killed. r.eader Arrested for Mur.ler. USIONTOWN, Pa., April 5. — The strikers were paralyzed at 2 a. m. when Sheriff MoCann played a trump card by arresting President L. R. Davis, ot the Mineworkers' association, and lodged him in jail charged with the murder of Superintendent Joseph Paddock, of the Frick company, who was brutally killed Wednesday. Sheriff McCann and Deputy Gay arrested Davis on the street at Scottdale. The capture was made quietly within a stone's throw of the strikers' camp. Davis turned pale when the sheriff told him he was wanted for complicity in the murder of Paddock and for a few moments acted as if ho would flee to the camp of the strikers, lie was taken between the two officers, escorted to a livery stable, put in a buggy and driven to jail. Striker* Are Bewildered. The arrest of Davis has 'placed tbe strikers iu a state of bewilderment throughout the region, and the abandonment of the strike within the next twelve hours is being predicted. A mob of 1,200 rioters, out of which Davis was taken, camped Wednesday night in the woods near Scottdale and did not make a move during the night They had planned an attack on the Moyer work ol A. J. Kainey. of Van- derbiltj but the absence of a leader caused them to abandon tho idea. They will not move until a meeting of delegates from all over the region can be held They fully expected Davis to return to them and map out a plan of operation, but now a new leader must be chosen or the movement will fall flat. There is general consternation in the ranks of the strikers and many are in favor of- giving up the fig-ht. There are now ninety-five rioters in jail here and these are the leaders in the movement.

LABOR WINS. A Decision in Favor of the Men in the Union Pacific Wages Case, Judge Caldwell Renders an Opinion Which Restores the Old Sched- u | e _Synopsi» of the Decision. BSD OJ 1 A HOTKD CA8K. On AH A, Neb., April 5.--Judge Caldwell's decision in the Union Pacific wage schedule case has been rendered and is a complete victory for the employes. Judge Caldwell's decision puts the old schedule of wages in force again. The em- ployes had beon restrained from striking against a reduction made by the receivers by an injunction similar to the famous order of Judge Jenkins in the Northern Pacific case. The men ought the injunction in court and the esult was the decision. ' Tlie United States courtroom was hrong-ed with railro;id men who lis- ened intently to the reading of the ipiniou, which was very lengthy, corn- jrising- over 4,000 words.

Tried to Fore* ft Reduction. Judge. Cftldvf ell then recites how the receivers went into court last January to force a reduction on the schedule of w»ues, and states all the lejral steps taken down to and including the hearing just ended. Judge Caldwell then goes on to say that when a court of equity takes upon itself the conduct and operation of a tfreat line of railroad the men engaged in conducting the business and operating the road become tbe em- ployes of the court, and are subject to its'orders in all matters relating to the discharge of their duties and entitled to its protection, and adds: "An essential and Indispensable requisite to the sate »nd nucoessful operation of tbe road is the employment of sober, Intelligent, experienced and capable men for that purpose. When a road comes under the management of a court In which tho employes are conceded to possess ill those qualifications—and that concession is made In the fulloBt manner here-tb.o court will not, on llgfit or trivial grounds, dispense with their services or reduce . their waies.

A BUI Introduced to Build * Boulevar* Acrou tbe Continent. WASHINGTON, April 5.—Bepretenta-. tive Dunphy (N. Y.) has introduced in the house a bill providing for tbe appointment by the president of a com-. mission to examine and report upon th» feasibility and desirability of constructing a. boulevard from the Allan-, tic to tbe Pacific oceans. The commto-. sioners are to be selected from the war,. agricultural, post office and interior departments. The bill was introduced at the request, ot Dr. John T. Nagle, the chief of the bureau of vital statistics of Neir York Tlie commission, Mr. Dunphy says, is to report upon the co»t of the boulevard, the character of th», roadbed, and the several states through which it will rrun from New York to, the Pacific slope. Dr. Name's idea to 1 . to make the proposed boulevard similar, to that of the western boulevard in, New York city, with a roadway on, either side and a promenade through tha, center shaded by trees. Mr. Dunphy, roughly estimates the cost at 1100,000,-. 000. Aside from the utility of the roadway, it would afford employment for thousands of idle men, which he regards as one of tlie chief consideration* of the plan. WAR CLOUD ROLLS AWAV. Uov.
