The murder of young Lynch by Patrick Slavin, at the West Elizabeth coal mines, several months ago, is probably remembered by all our readers. Slavin fled and has since escaped arrest, although a reward of $500 was offered for his apprehension. Now the story comes that Slavin has reappeared in West Elizabeth, and is again at work in the coal pits. He declares that he will be taken alive.
