Litti.k Hook, Ark., March 11.—A
dispatch from Enterprise, Ind. Ter.,
says that a posse iu pursuit of two
men who had stolen thirty horses in
the Choctaw nation, followed the
thieves for three days, finally sur-
roundiug them ten miles east of that
place. The thieves refused to surren-
der and kept, up firing, having dis-
mounted from their horses and
taken to the woods. The posse
pressed them closely and tne fight
was kept up for two or three
hours, both pursuers and pursued
firing ns rapidly as they could load
their revolvers. One of the posse, in
trying to head off the thieves, re-
ceived a bullet in his arm, shattering
it, and causing him to fall from his
horse. Fjnally the entire party
massed and charged the two crim-
inals, forcing thein to take refuge
just at the edge of the woods in a
cabin. Hi'ie the thieves barricaded
themselves and defiantly proclaimed
that they would not be taken alive.
After repeated efforts to induco
them to give up the house was set on
fire. Still tin; men inside refused to
come out, •although the roof was a
mass of fiaines. They still threatened
death to any of the posse who ven-
tured near. At last the frame of the
building fell in, burying the desper-
adoes in the ruins, and they were
roasted to death in the burning build-

White Oak, N. M., March 11.—At 3
o'clock yesterday morning fire broke
out in the change room at the hoist
house of the Old Abe mine and in a
few minutes the structure, a largo
and well-built one, was a mass of
flames. It was completely de-
stroyed, together with tli? wool
ami smith shops. The mill, sixty
feet away, escaped with dam-
age. The woodwork of the .shaft was
burned out and the hoisting ma-

high up into tho thousands, but the
most distressing feature is that eight
men are imprisoned in the dark
depths whose fate is unknown. Thero
is little ground for hope that they
have escaped suffocation.

steam, but never made much money
out of the invention because it was
not generally adopted until the pat-

COAL MINE ON FIRE.
Worst Conflagration fur Years In the
Pennsylvania Anthracite Kegion.
IIazi.eton, Pa., March 11.—The
worst fire for years in the anthracite
region is now raging in tho Ilazleton
slope of the Lehigh Valley coal com-
pany. When the fire broko out six
weeks ago it was at first thought to.
bo of little consequence. The slope
was close l shortly afterward. Since
then hundreds of thousands of dollars
have been spent in efforts to subdue
tho fiaines. The chances of getting
tho fire out in the next six weeks
are dubious, and the probable loss to
the company cannot be estimated.
The mine was tho deepest operated
by tho company and was one of the
most valuable, employing some 1,100
men. The destruction of this great
colliery is not alone threatened now,.
