expectation all was quiet on WoMorn iiv
line tills moiuliig in the vicinity ol' tho
West Division enr barns, and but for the
presence of a few policemen no one would
suspect that tlio street was yesterday tlio
scene or riot and amtult. At early dawn
the striking conductor!! nnd drivers and
outsldo synipalhlers began to congregate)
on llio street in anticipation or uu aitbntpl
to start out some cars by the company.
The company kept their cars in tlio b.irns,
however, nnd made 110 sign.
Mr. King, division superintendent, ad
mitted that he hud been instructed by tho
company to mnke no attempt In starL tho

new conductors and drivers ulleied to
have been Idled yestoulny were In tlio
barns, nnd the crowd stopped nil slningeivt
who were going toward tlieiu to make In
quliics as to their business. An obnoxious
ear-slnrter ttndeitook to get to the bam.
but was slopped at Park avonito by a half
dozen men and given n severe he.itiug.
Tho policemen in the neighborhood
calmly watched tho chastisement of tho
men, and mndeuoattempttostop the row.
Tlio strikers, encouraged by their suo
cess yestciday, and Hie apparent weaken
ing of tlie company to-day, are said to
have made an additional dom.uid on the
olllclals as the pilee of peace. They ask
that not only sliull the ill teen discharged
men bo taken back, but tliut several ob
noxious car stailcrs and other barn em
ployes be discharged. An olllcial or the
company stated this morning Hint lie did
not look Cor any further trouble, and
thought a settlement ol'some kind would
be arrived at to-day.
Later Noon. A rumor is now current
that in spite of their declarations to tho
contiary, Hie company will attempt to
slait cars to day. If they do so theie will
undoubtedly bo a repetition of ye-tenlay's
