"Acpordlng to the report, thcro was
great: feeling against Cunningham and
tho men decided not to allow him to ar
rost them, and ho was driven away. Mr

the men to submit quietly, but that the
coal companies, who own all of tho tele
graph and telephono lines connecting
with the town, refused to deliver it and
beforo he could get any message to the
men Cunningham and his doputivs,
who, he said, woro tho worst chrracters
he-'Could collect, went to tho town a
eocoud time and killed tho miners in
tho bight time in their beds.
Mr. Evans says that ho went to the
scene of tbo trouble the next morning
after 43, mon had been arrtstcd for con
spiracy to kill Cunningham, and found
there in a houeo occupied by a colored
man tho dead bodies of William Dod
son, William Clark and Richard Clay

"On inquiry wo found that the wife
