LONDON. Eny,., Aug. 19. Bloodshed today marked, the, progress of the
great railway and industrial strike that Is crippling lltiMt' transportation oft'
Great Britain and has already, it is estimated, drawn 220,000 persons from
their work. .
The scene of the bloodshed was at Llannelly, Wales, where a great crowd
of strikers surrounded a train and attacked it In an endeavor to take the
train crew off and prevent the movement of traffic. The mob was charged
by troops, but the soldiers tried in vain to disperse the rioters and finally,
under orders, fired Into the mass of people, killing two and fatally wounding
Reports here are that there is little rioting, except In the suburban towns.
Howover, the mobs are venting their fury by tearing up railway tracks and
stoning the trains. Only a partial service Is maintained on the lines affected
by the strike. il MiU'if JJI
