nearly 2.000 people around the stables. Car No. 239,
driven by E. A. Han-cy, a new drivor, was the flrst to
toare tte stables, at 10 a. m., and the track was
guarded on olther sldo by pelicemon, who stood at dls?

Four more cars were run out aud made trlps to the

were made. The flrst real bloodshed took place about
8 p. m. A party of strlkers overtorned a tmek be

Offlcer Patrick Lynch Immedlately chased the men
down Foity-nluth-st. to Elghth-ave., where he caught
and held Jamos Xesdale, a drlver on the Broadway
Rallroad, who said that his addre* was No. 235 West

offlcer on the head, but he luehlly deew It back and lt
fseaped tbe mau'a fooT. Lynch then drew his pktol

Tho crowd tueu made another attempt to rescue

The noise of the firlng brought a squad of pollcrm-n

NO CABS RUN ON THE BKLT LINE-TBOUBLE
FEARED IN TENTH-<AVE.
No attempt was made to run a car ou the JJelt Llue

ttstn could not spaio pollcemen enuugh to ftMi a

want to banalo the Belt Llne until they can put not

ft*peelally In ttrn aftenioon. the vlclnlty of the stables
wa*. thronged with crowds.
Thore were numero'is sharp eolllRions between tho
p->lke and tbe mob. All durlng the day and nlght tho
Ktrlkers and their friends have been plling up ob
srractlwns on trarks of the H<-lt Llne, until now It |
will requlre flfty men a whole day to clear the path
for a car. All down the avenue tliere have been
dumped loads of aand, aabee, maoure. bricks, etc.
and whatever Ihe strlhers could lay their hands on.
The most formidable obstructlons are on Uie hlll
between thn Ptables and Flfty-nlnth-st. Here tlie
sfrlkers have ptled on tJie ti-ack many tons of, dehrls.
and also about flfteen tons of blg stones.
A ntmor spreart Miroogh the pelghboihood at 2:30

two cabb rtrr through.
From the goNsip among the striking employea
of the Atlantic Avcnue Railroad Company, ap
prehensioas are felt that the Knights of Lnbor
mav order a strike on all the other Brooklyn
roads withln n day or two. While nothing deilntte
could be learncd on the maticr last night, it was
understood that the various local a*scmblics
would be cillpd uoon to vote on the1 subject at
their meetinga that evening or to-niglit. It was
not thought likely that tbis extremc mensurc
would be adopted within less than forty-eight
hours. but it would not be a surpriso to some
people if no cars were run in Brooklyn aftcr
4 o'clock tc-dav. Thc reason for desiring to tie
ttn all the Brooklyn ronds ls that the Knighta
flrmlr believc that all the companlrs Lwvc com
bined for mutual orotection, with a vicw to
deMrovinz their labor organizations. Efforts are
being made to bring the charge home to the eom?
paniea but even if it ls not absolutcly proven
to be the fact. the mcn may feel so morally oertain
that they have not made a mistako that every
railroad roau will be ordered out
A CONTERENCE AT LAST.
A committee of the employes of the Atlantic
Avetnif Company cnllcd on 1'rcaidcnt Ricunrdson
at his house, and had a conterencc for an hour.
Wallace Seaman, a conductor, aaid that as Mr.
Richardson had aaid he would only receive a
commltue ef his own employes, they had called
to- find out if he would treat with suoh a com?
mittee in the presence of the Exeoutive Board.
or would refcr thc mattcr to arbitration. Mr.
rdson in hit rcply taid:
Now I am wllling on avery polnt that will not tn

imottnt and klnd of aerrtea wo havs xec&lved m tha pa?t

NOT AT AEL A CnEERFUL OUTLOOK.
Although tho Atlantio Avenu* Railroad Com
pany yesterday ran two cars over Ita Fifth ave.
line, it was not bebeved tliat the backbone of the
strike has been broken or tfcatt thc Snuth Ilrooklyn
puhlic ean oxpect a general resumption of trafllc
for aome time. Both Mdes remain flrm. The pre
vailing opinion nmons thc atrikors is that. taM
company has gained nothing, and thnt tlie police
have simply demonstrated that if an extromely
large force of bluecoats is in rcadine&s to protect a
ear there neod b? no fear of vioknee, but thnt
the great number of officer* who escortod tha cars
yesterday cannot be had at all times, and that*
thereforo, it wouM be follr for more than one or
two cars to b* on the roiid at once.
It waa pointed out that the fact thnt almost no
violence was indulged ln by thc strlkers ?<*t#rday
amounts to really nothing; for the strlkers and
their fxienda wwre only amused at what was to
them bot a faroa If tbe polico and the oompany
eaa stand it, they ean, they aoy. and will iaake no
effort to prevent one or two enra bcinj; rui. But
when any attempt is made to operate tlie eara on
aehedule time, or anything approaehlng lt, then,
aay the men, trouble will begin. It would be
aeeeaaary to divide up aJtf luailiibleapo^ce foroe so
that the diatuxbett would hav? no great force to
contend with. On the othf r hsnd, it is claimed
that there woukl bc little (lifliculty in peobecting
ten cars and tlist if that much was accomplislo-d
the company would in a few daya be able to hire
aa many men us they reo.uiro to opmito their wlmle
syatem of elght linea. If tbe stntemente made by
some of the company's employea are true, Ita
preaent force of " scabs" ia not aufticient to man
ten eara At the Atlantle-ave. stablea there are
Mtid to be only four men avallable for duty as
