ALL CAR LINES STOPPED.
Representatives of the St. Louis
Union Men Who Attended the
Employes' Picnic Partici
pate in the Affray.
Officer Lou Edwards of the East St. Louis
rolice force was compelled by the threats
of violence to release a joung man he ar
rested at Wolf's Park yesterday afternoon.
It was during the picnic of the East St.
Louis street car strikers, and for a time it
looked as if it would go hard with the po
liceman. At another place It required the
services of four policemen to make nn ar
rest. There wero other exciting incidents
and It was finally deemed necessary to take
off tho street cars during the evening.
Officer Edwards Is noted for his coolness.
Had It not have been for the fact that ho
kept his presence of mind it Is thought
there would have been a serious riot.
Shortly after tho parading strikers from
St. Louis gathered at the park a young
man. supposed to be from St. Louis and
wearing a placard, "Union or Nothing;
Liberty or Death," created a disturbance
and annoyed the employes of the East St.
Louis street car line. Officer Edwards's at
tention was called to tho boy and he
warned him to desist. The young man
laughed and dared the officer to come near
er. Officer Edwards told tho boy that fie
was under arrest. The boy cried for help
and bn'ore the policeman could get him
Into the street, the two were surrounded
by more than a hundred men. The men
pressed closely on the officer and threat
ened loler.ce If ho insisted on arresting tho
boy. There was no assistance near, and
seeing himself alone In tho big crowd, tho
policeman thought discretion the better
part of valor and, after warning tho lad,
Officer Edwards reported the facts to his
superior, and Chief Hauss said that the
officer did right under tho circumstances.
Ho said that he understood that tho lad
could only have been arrested by fqree of
arms, and that the policeman would not
have had much show In the crowd. There
was no further trouble, however, there.
At Ohio and Colllnsvllle avenues, a crowd
of men gathered In the afternoon and
called "scab" at each passing street car
crew. One of the men In the crowd, who
was particularly noisy, was J. W. Dunlap
of St. Louis. Officer Reedy, with the as
sistance of Officers'Fancher, Mansfield and
Slcgel, arrested him. The crowd gathered
around the policemen and prisoner, but
when tho officers raised their clubs over
their shoulders and threatened worse than
a clubbing to any who should dare to stand
In tho way, a clear field was given them
and they walked oft with their prisoner to
the police station. They were followed nt
a respectful distance by a large crowd, who
j elled "scab" at the officers.
Lato In the afternoon a commltteo from
the St. Louis union street car men called
at police headquarters, apologized '? the
action of their member, and Chief Hauss
released him on condition that ha cross tho
Several of the St. Louis men boarded an
East St. Louis Street car as It was passing
Woirs Park and dragged John Regan, the
conductor, from tho car. The motorman
stopped the car and Regan landed a few
heavy swings on his nearest opponents, and
freeing himself. Jumped on the car again.
There was no other attempt at violence,
but at 5 p. m. Superintendent Mike Har
rold ordered all of the cars Into the sheds.
There were no cars In operation In the
evening on any of the divisions.

The train stopped at Forsythe Junction
for several minutes, waiting for a west

saw the car coming several hundred yards
away, and armed themselves with rocks
and bombarded it as It drew nearer.
Motorman Bagby Increased the speed, not
even stopping at the switch at Forsythe
Junction. None of the passengers were al

this time the train had passed.
This was the second experience that Clay

to-night expressed hlmelf as being en

of the shootings to-day. he said:
"I feel more encouraged now than ever
that tho Sheriff's force Is ablo to cope with

Men Blockading Cars at Twentieth
A rather original method of embarrassing
the operation of the street cars was at
tempted at Twentieth and Palm streets
yesterday. It worked for a time, but final
ly the principals and several of their sym
pathizers and their coadjutors were landed
In the Fifth District Station.

Fifteenth street, all teamsters, had two
loads of coal to deliver at a saloon at the
corner of TwenUeth and Palm. They so
arranged their wagons that they complete
ly barred the car tracks. The wagons
were protected in this position by a crowd
of strike sympathizers, and a dozen or
more cars assembled. A squad of deputies
and also Officers Birmingham, Nelson,
Meany and Troehy went, to the sceno.
The officers arrested the teamsters, but
while doing so three of the crowd were
also arrested one for attempting to prevent
the arrest of the teamsters, one for dis
turbance of the peace, and one for refus
ing to vacate. These latter three are Louis

to calls. All through the North End there
wcro hostile demonstrations toward the
car lines running, but the most serious
trouble occurred at Broadway and North
Market, Twentieth and Palm, and along
The crowds, however, were cautious, and
usually dispersed on sight of the deputies.
Their attempts to stop tho cars were main
ly the placing of obstructions on the track,
though at some places they stoned the cars
and their guards. At Twentieth and Falra
streets six men were arrested for obstruct
ing tracks and carrying concealed weapons.
Some bystanders Interfered In these arrests
and for a time serious trouble threatened,
but. through the combined action of the
police and deputies of Company I, this was
averted. An assault on a woman was per

boarding, and the only way to see Into the
yard Is through two knot holes In this gate.
When the deputies came opposite this gate
they were positive It was the place Into
which the men had plunged.
Deputy Robert E. Marsh stepped to tho
gate and knocked upon It with tbe butt
of his gun. Then, the deputies say, the
barrel of a revolver was shoved through
one of the knotholes, and that voice ex
claimed, "Get "out of hero."

IIott tbe Riot Waa Started.
Yesterday afternoon the street car strik
ers of East St. Louis held a picnic at
vnir Grove. In the outskirts of that city.
The picnic was for the benefit of the East
About 600 union men from St. Louis went
over to take part la the demonstration.
Tho men marched over In a body about 2
o'clock In the afternoon, headed by a drum
corps, and returned In the same manner at
fi o'clock, when the riot occurred.
While the strikers were marching east on
Washington avenue, en route to East St.
Louis, they were met at Twelfth and
Washington avenue by Chief Campbell.
They were advised by the Chief to dis
perse, as such a demonstration was likely
to produce trouble. The meu paid no at
tention to tho warning and marched on to
the Eads Bridge.
The strikers returned to St. Louis at
nvim-k. Ther marched directly west on
the north side of Washington avenue.
There was somo jeering as they passed the
barracks, but no attention was paid to It.
Just about this time car No. M of the
Delmar avenue line paused the barracks
going west. The vanguard of the strikers'
parade was overtaken at Sixth and Wash
ington avenue. Some one shouted scab.
then a brick was hurled at the car.
In an Instant fifteen or twenty men
rushed to the car and attempted to board
It, shouting. "Let's take a ride, boys'.'
Deputy William P. Kennett was doing
guard duty at Sixth and Washington ave
nue. He shouted to the men to halt. No
attention was paid to the command.
Other deputies saw the demonstration and
rushed to the scene. Colonel Cavondcr,
Doctor F. B. Woodruff, surgeon of the
posse; Hugh K. Hartung. Captain Charles
Nagel and Judge John H. Overall, who were
In the barracks, rushed to the sceno of the
trouble. About this time a bomb exploded
under the car, and the strikers rushed for
ward, and tried to pull Motorman K. llolden
and Conductor C. E. Murray off the plat
forms. Deputies Open Fire.
At thlr moment a shot was tired. Immedi
ately aftei ward the deputies began shooting
at the crowd. Their fire was desultory, and
not In volley. First one striker dropped,
then another, and finally two more feu. One
of tbe last to fall was Rlne. He got up
and walked back to Broadway, where he
crept Into tbe doorway of the Grand-Leader.
After the fire by the deputies began and
the rattle of the buckshot was heard the
crowd who surrounded the car ran, some
going north and some south on Sixth
street and others west on Washington.
Meantime a riot call was turned in end
police mounted and on foot and a num
ber of detectives were dispatched to the
scene. The car proceeded west, under the
convoy of a score of mounted officers.
Colonel Cavender at once ordered an extra
guard thrown around the barracks and pos
semen patrolled Sixth, Fifth and St. Charles
streets and Washington avenue, prohibit
ing any person or vehicle from passing.
In the barracks great excitement pre
vailed. Men talked excitedly of the encoun
ter and rushed hither and thither to learn
if any of their fellow, had been wounded.
Colonel Cavender said: "The strikers,
when they came back from East St. Louis,
were very demonstrative as they passed the
barracks and attacked a car at Sixth street,
trying to drag off the crew. I ordered the
men out at once and when the deputies ar
rived on the scene one of the strikers fired
directly at my men. Before that bricks
had been thrown at the car.
"Firing began at once In a desultory way
and four men were seen to falL The crowd

rectly at me. I leveled my gun on tbe man.

and fired. Several other reports of guns
rang out at the same tune, and two men

be enacted on the streets of St. Louis. How
could those men have been so foolish?"
W. P. Kennett. Cbas. Nagel, Judge Ches
ter II. Krumm. John T. Lee and John H.
Overall all said that the riot was precip
itated by the firing of a shot, the throwing
of bricks by the strikers, and the attempt
on their part to drag the crew from the car.
As soon as the tiring ceased and the
crowd began to disperse, the deputies made
several arrests of those who were nearest
the cars. Twenty or more men wero taken
In custody and brought to the barracks,
where they were searched. Revolvers,
brass knuckles, wire clippers and knives
were found upon the men. All were sent
to the Central District Police Station, where
they were held.

"We had been at a picnic at Wolf Grove.
In East St. Louis. We marched over with
Mr. Mahon and myself In a buggy at the
head of the parade. In which there were 809
men. When we returned Mahon and I drove
over the bridge before the procession, so as
to be able to pay the toll for tbe men. We
were some distance In advance, and Mahon,
took bis buggy to the Btable. leaving me at
the toll-keeper's office. Mahon was far
away when the shooting occurred.
"I paid the men's toll and I know posi
tively that there were 800 men and more la
the procession. In advance there wero
two drum co.-js that bad volunteered for
the occasion, and there was a standard
bearer. Each of the four divisions had a
captain, but I cannot recall what division
led. I saw as I looked toward the bar
racks that the deputies. In anticipation of
any disorder, had formed a guard in a
complete circle, from Fourth to Sixth
streets. I was walking awiy from tho
street, and tho men wero marching along
CoatlaBc on Pace Two,
Who was shot in the head by possemen
at Sixth and Washington avenue.
