Out of the wide line, running
almost ns nearly abreast as a mili

The funeral of Andreas Ilodguez, the
striking fireman who was shot to death
In a waterfront strike riot Monday
night, became a weird spectacle this
afternoon when the great throng of
strikers that followed tho cortege from
strike headquarters, No. West street,
Insisted on taking the casket out of the
hearse and having It borne aloft on the
shoulders of relays of men In an ef
fort to Incite longshoremen to strike.
There wero several thousand men and
women In the funeral parade after It
had left the strike headquarters amid
scenes of riot and extraordinary con
fusion. The strike loaders had planned to
make the most of Kodguez's funeral as
a demonstration to eullst sympathy,
and the line of march took In tho entire
length of West street, Whitehall and
South streets, thence to Itoosevelt
street, to Cherry street, to the Bowery,
to Williamsburg Bridge.
TAKE BODY FROM HEAR8E.
Funeral services wero held In the
strike headquarters and the casket was
carried out to the hoarso and placed
Ins-ldc. As soon as tho streets could be
cleared of the Jam of shouting and ges
ticulating men and women and the
tangle of trucks, the hearse started off
at the head of eighty carriages. It had
covered less than a block when the
driver was orderd to stop and th casket
was taken from tho hearse.
At the came time men and women
plied out of the eighty carriages and
went along on afoot carrying the
floral offerings and waving strings of
Proceeding In this fashion some one
In tho great throng started a funeral
chant In Spanish, which Is the lan
guage of the majority of tho strikers.
This chant wan taken up all along tho
line of the procession end was con
tlued throughout the murch to the
cemerery. Tho eighty empty carriages
followed the pall bearers who curiled
the casket. Tho empty hearse was
driven at the head of the cortage.

by this renmrkublu procession the pave
