The feeling here is high and more trouble is feared. The mine guards are now swarming here, and two gatling guns have already arrived. The mine guards were moving the household effects of non-union miners when some one fired at them. The guards then fired two volleys into the strikers, killing Cisto Croci and wounding Chris Kohich, who died a short time later. Andrew Anwin, one of the wounded strikers died this morning, making three in all who are dead as a result of the battle. Golden Colorado Transcript - October 30, 1913 - Strike Battle at Walsenburg - Walsenburg, Colo. Oct. 25 - One dead, two dying and three wounded men lay on upper Seventh street here Friday afternoon after a battle between the guards and strikers that began and ended so suddenly that spectators were still scrambling to shelter as the smoke from the rifles lifted from the street. The Dead - Cisto Croci, Italian striker, shot through the head; Andrew Anwin, Fin striker, shot twice in body.
