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.
