YIOLENCpIN STREET CAR STRIKE At Philadelphia-Four To Six Thousand Men Out Philadelphia, Feb. spite of yesterday's severe rioting the Phila- delphia Rapid Transit Company start- ed their early morning schedule to- day without apparent interruption by the strikers or their sympathizers. The first cars left the barns in dif- ferent sections of thc city at 5 a.m., twelve hours after the service had been discontinued. Refreshed by their rest the mo tor men and conductors who had slept in barns on cots pro- vided by the company, manned the cars protected by a policeman on both! front and rear platforms. The strike! leaders wearied by yesterday's stren- uous work, rested until late this morning and no further statements were given out at union headquarters Beyond the statement -that "All lines are in operation with the full quota of-cars" the officials of the Rapidly Transit Co. also declined to comment' on the situation.

The first intimation of trouble was the pointing of two revolvers in the faces of Quinney and Bairflj accom- panied with demand, "Hold up your hands." Quinney could not'at i first think the demand was made in j earnest, and replied to'it by "Oh, go on, we are in a hurry to catch the train." But his doubts as to the earnestness 01 the command were dispelled by a smart thwack ac- ross the cheek with the barrel of the obnoxious revolver.

In a moment- ous speech from the throne bis ma- jesty outlined the plan ot the minis- terial campaign against the House of Lords as follows: Recent experiences have disclosed serious difficulties due to recurring rences of strong opinion between the two branches of the legislature. Proposals will be, laid before you with. all convenient speed, to define the re- lations between the House of Com- mons over finance, and its predomin- ance in legislation. These measures In the opinion of my advisers should provide that this house should be so constituted and empowered as to ex- ercise impartially In regard to pro- posed legislation the functions of in- itiation, the revision and subject, to proper safeguards of delay."
