Three Kentucky Miners Given Life Sentences.

Richmond, Ky., July 18-- The jury in the trial of Berry Simpson, Elisha Slavin and George Stanley, on trial for the murder of a deputy United States marshal at Stearns, Ky., returned a veredict of guilty at midnight. The three were given life sentences. Simpson and his son, Jesse, along with Elisha and Oliver Slavin, were also found guilty of disobeying the temporary injunction order that had been issued against the union miners employed at a mine where a strike was in progress and which culminated in the killing of the deputy marshal.
