TO BOTTLED ONLY BY Excelsior Springs Bottling Co EXCELSIOR SPRINGS MO Sold by JAMES J KNAPP and C B HENDERSON CO WATERLOO Jan Apple ton has ordered his men that when they are assaulted henceforth they shall re spond point blank with lead Captured Two About 2 oclock a mob at Fulton street and Buffalo avenue made an attack on a Fulton street car An effort was made to force the conductor and motorman from the car Captain Dwyer mth a platoon of police attempted to disperse the mob which resisted and threw stones and other missiles at the officers Fifteen men from troop A under com mand of Lieutenant Badgley came to the assistance of the police and the strikers were dispersed Two prisoners were captured and taken on a trolley car to the Twelfth precinct station Clubbed a Few A squad of policemen and some dis were in conflict during the morning When the men were ordered to clear away from the corner of Hamil ton avenue and Court street they re fused to do so One of the men hurled an egg at a blue coats thereupon charged the mob and clubbed everyone in sight Twenty of the crowd left the neighborhood with badly bruised heads An attempt was made to shoot Private Louis P Duff of Com pany I Fourteenth regiment who was on picket duty at the comer of the Flat bush avenue car stables A pistol ball passed within a few feet of his head The guard was turned out but could find noone who might have fired the shot AN UNUSUAL CALM It Follows Turbulent Events of tlie was ati unusual cahn about Brooklyn after the excitement of the night The points Where the military guards were stationed were devoid of crowds and save for a few petty assaults the early morning was without incident It is said that during the day delegates from New York city Newark and Jersey City will conie to Brooklyn to confer with the strike leaders to consider the advisability of ordering a strike among the motormen and conductors of the trolley lines in those cities The execu tive committee will advise the delegates not to do so unless they have ent grievances as they fear that a sym pathetic strike will deprive them of pub lic confidence which they now claim to have The executive committee also deprecates any attempt of other workers to strike out of sympathy Another Conference Another conference between Brigadier General McLeer Mayor Schieren the executive committee of strikers and the presidents of the railroad companies will be held during the day in order that an other effort may be made to settle the dispute without further trouble The strikers seem to have the best of the situation despite the strong military and police guards The companies are still further ham by the refusal of their linemen to repair cut wires This it practically a strike of the linemen It Is a Bad Blow The superintendent of the Gates av enue line said that the refusal of the linemen to work will preclude all possi of the company running cars for the day The fixing of electric wires is a business which requires much care and an expert knowledge This strike is the greatest blow the companies have yet received as in case of wires being cut car traffic will come to a complete standstill Linemen cannot be secured as easily as and conductors Cars are running on the Fulton street Fifth avenue Bergen street Simmer avenue Putnam avenue and Flatbush lines None of them have been mo lested Two companies of militia have been sent from the depot of the Atlantic avenue line at Fifth avenue and street to the depot at Ninth avenue and Twentieth street where it was proposed to start the Fif street line HE HATES A COWARD General Robert Avery Tells What He His Administration NEW YORK Jan Mayor Scheirens callers was General Robert Avery who lost a leg at Lookout Moun tain The general with suppressed in said he desired to ask the mayor whether the people were to go armed or whether they were to have protection It was certain that they had not had yet He deplored a situation which held the rights of 400000 people of Brooklyn who were accustomed to ride on the cars of this city daily as nothing against the do mands of 4000 or 5000 strikers He ba that if such a man as dent Byrnes ot New X had been given full charge of the police here the trouble would have been ended before now Incompetent ox Cowardly The police of said he are either incompetent to handle this situation or they are cowardly or are in sympathy with the strikers The po Ice of New York may be thieves and but are not cowards As for myself I prefer thieves and blackmailers to cowards There is no protection whatever afforded by the po The other day a car contain ing 15 policemen was attacked by a mob who dragged the motormanto the street and brutally beat him Behind the car was a police patrol wagon with 12 men Yet with the 27 officers present not one arrest was made The police neither club the strikers nor arrest them They have not arrested a striker yet Now this is a pretty state of affairs I say that an administration which cannot meet a situation like this is not a competent administration The men have the right to strike but they have no right to interfere with others who do want to work Was a Poor Excuse Alderman Clark happened to be present said that the railroad corpora tions were violating the law Why are they permitted to do so queried the general business is it to compel them to observe the law Isnt it the business of the administra tion to do so I do not defend the rail road companies but I claim they should be protected against riotous strikers and I claim that something should be done at once to accommodate the traveling public of Brooklyn BLACKS WILL EMIGRATE WHOLE STO 1288 A Hundred Thousand Negroes From Southern States Will Move to Mexico SAN ANTONIO Tex Jan 23
