A CRITICAL STAGE
COAL MINERS* STRIKE RESULTS
A Clash Hot wren Courts—State aud Fed-
a*»l -Authorities Issue Counter Instruc-
tions—-Operators (let Out Injunctions—
The Importation of Negroes Forbidden.
Little Rock, Ark., April 25.—The sit-
uation iu the coal mining strike in the
western part of the ‘state, which has
been on for the past three weeks, is
becoming strained to the breaking
point, aud serious trouble is feared. At
a few points riots of an unimportant
but ominous nature have occurred.
There are still about 0000 miners out
In Arkansas and the Indian Territory,
and the mines are practically at a
Now gomes the information that the
field is to be flooded with negro miners
and That the .mines may be permitted
to resume work. On Saturday even-
ing Judge Jofin H. Rogers of the Unit-
ed States court at Fort Smith issued
an injunction restraining miners aud
others from interfering with any one
Vho may desire to work in the mines.
On the other hand, Governor Jones
lias issued an order declaring that the
peace of the state demands the exclu-
sion of negro miners aud authorizing
the sheriff of Sebastian county to pre-
vent the landing of any such persons
by the railroads.
Governor Jones yesterday received
Information from Greenwood that mine
owners were shipping a lot of negroes
from North Carolina and other states
to the coal fields and that should this
be done it would result in riots and
much bloodshed. The governor said:
*T have taken the only step, the ex-
clusion of negroes, in my power to ac
complish the end of averting trouble.
fL'lid peace of the state shall be pre-
served, and I shall employ every pow-
er 1 possess to that end.”
Little Rock, Ark., April 25.—A spe-
einl to the Gazette from Fort SiniriiT
Ark., says: The coal miners’ strike
has reached a critical stage at the Hun
tiugton mines of the Kansas and Tex-
as Coal company and an interesting
conflict of state and federal authori-
ty exists. Judge Rogers of the fed-
eral court in tills city last Saturday
issued an injunction restraining the
striking miners and all others from in-
terfering in any manner with the
operation of the Kansas and Texas
mines at Huntington.
Deputy Marshals Lunsford and Che-
ney worilv proceeded to Huntington
and served the papers on all the min-
ors they could find, finishing the work
yesterday morhing. This action came
as a great surprise to the miners, who
claim that no overt act-of any charac-
ter has been committed by them.
The report published here that the
miners had held up a train supposed
to be carrying non-union miners to
Huntington to take the place of the
strikers they-declare to he without
tjie slightest foundation in fact.
The clashvyn authority came yester-
sircd out an injunction before Circuit
Judge Rowe restraining any railroad
from hauling any force of men to
Huntington to take the place of the
•striking miners, alleging such men to
bo an armed and lawless set whose
appearance at the mines would en-
danger the pence of the state. The re-
straining order was granted and
placed in the hands of the sheriff, who
proceeded to serve it on all the rail-
Washington, April 25. — President
Iglcsias of Costa Rica, accompanied
by Minister Cairo of that country, had
a conference yesterday with Secretary
Hay concerning Nicaragua canal af-
fairs and also paid calls of respect on
ihe president and vice president. It
amis stated that the calls developed
in, important, changes in the canal sit-
uation. Minister Correa of Nicaragua
■called at the White Ilouse yesterday,
prior to his departure for Nicaragua,
where ho. too, will interest himself
in the1 canal project.

-Albany, X. Y., April 25.—The assem-
bly last night passed a senate anti-
trust Dill by a vote of 105 to 2. The
purpose of the bill Is to prevent mo-
nopolies in articles of commodities of
common use and to prohibit restrain of
trade and commerce, providing penal-
ties for the violations of the provis-
ions of the act and directing procedure
to enable the attorney general to se-
cure testimony in relatioh to such vio-
Cliarirk to Dallas (Iriind Jury.
Dallas, Texas, April 25.—Judge Chas.
F. Clint of the criminal district court
of Dallas yesterday delivered a special
charge to the grand Jury of unusual
force aud emphasis. The charge, a
quite lengthy aud exhaustive one, haa
set the town to talking.
Linder the subject of carrying death
ly weapons, aud In the light of recent
tragedies and court trials, he said:
“Don’t stop at Indicting a few small
devils who carry pistols; one indict-
ment usually breaks tliuin up in busi-
ness, but there are wealthy men, pro-
minent men, who make a practice of
carrying pistols and of openly boasting
of ‘Old Betsie’s sure aim’—get these
men, teach them to understand they
are no better than others aud make all
respect the Iuav. Men who deliberate-
ly violate the law and boast of It as
some men do iu this regard are no bet-
ter than outlaws.”
Recent “leaks” of grand jury pro-
ceedings were touched upon as fol-
lows: “It has been notoriously of pub-
lic comment that grand jury proceed-
ings have heretofore ‘leaked out.’ I
want you to emphasize the oath of se-
crecy to every Avitness and to make
efforts to apprehend every man who
violates that oath. When you find
one who is guilty of divulging any-
thing, that came to his knowledge
AAliile before the grand jury, let me
know it and we’ll see if he can’t be
made to respect the next grand Jurj
he goes before.”
The part of Judge Clint’s charge
which created the most acute sensa-
tion AA’as the following: “It becomes
my duty, gentlemen, to direct your
special attention to the current reports
of malfeasance in office by officials of
the city of Dallas. I want you to
summon before you the mayor, city au-
ditor, city secretary, chief of police,
his captain, each alderman and such
other persons as may be necessary for
you to examine in arriving at the truth
or falsity of these current reports.
“Public servants frequently have
enemies who try to drag them doAvn
and besmirch tlielr reputations. Re-
niemher. also, that they have friends
who try to hide the truth. For this
reason an affair of this kind must he
investiated with caution.. The city
council passed a resolution demanding
an investigation of the current charges
of malfeasance against its members.
Have all the officers I have mentioned
before you. It Ls not the duty of a
special committee, as provided in the
council resolution, to investigate
charges of malfeasance, but It is par-
ticularly the duty of the grand jury.
Make these charges against city offi-
cials a special matter. I direct your
consideration to them, because the law
makes it my duty to do so.”
After hearing the court’s charge the
grand jurors proceeded to their room
and went to work. Judge J. C. Rob-
erts; assistant county attorney, is Avitli
them and a full fo^ce of bailiffs has
been placed at tlielr disposal.
