Bad Clash Is Feared - Mine Owners Want Militia

The Minneapolis Journal - 9 April 1895
For the Miners Intend to Prevent 
Outside Workmen from Going In
  Albia, Iowa, April 9 -- A clash between mine operators and striking miners at the Cincinnati mines, in the southern part of Appanoose county, seems inevitable unless the militia is ordered out to quell the strikers.  It is reported here that another delegation, 100 strong, is on the way from Mendota, Mo., just over the state line, to join forces with the strikers from Cincinnait, Rathbun, Mystic, Jerome and Seymour, to prevent the men whom the operators have imported from entering the mines.
  Notice has been served on the leaders of the strikers that if they do not permit the operators to open their mines an appeal would be made to Gov. Jackson to order out the militia.
