When Mrs. Scanlan came down to break
fast yesterday morning, she was appar
ently In the bsst of health. After finishing
breakfast she began preparations for a trip
to Cahokla, 111., where she owned a man
sion more than 103 jears old. Her son,
Philip C. Scanlan, assisted her In getting
eTeral articles Into the carriage. At 3 15
o'clock, he stepped out of tho room and
when ho returned two minutes later, he
feend his mother Ivlnfi; across the be!
TMnWngT that she had merely falotedhe
applied stimulants and summonded medical
aid. She had died, however, almost In
stantly. Tor several weeks Mrs. Bcanlan had
been preparing to take her grandchildren
to her birthplace In CahoUIa, and It Is
thought that In so doing she overexerted
herself and thus hastened her death.

It Is commonly understood that she ac

of the property, the rccotlatlons rlng
carried on by the Mercantile Trust Com
pany and the Mississippi Valley Trust
Company for the respective railway cor
porations. Members of the 3canlan family held or
controlled a large portion of the stock,
and when the value of th shares roo
from 360 to $1,500. It Is understood that
members of the family required a ast
amount of wealth by the sale of the secur
Wes. Mrs. Bcanlan'j. lnterert In the Wiggins
Perry Company was due to the financial
ventures of her father. Samuel Cartmlll
Christy, and her uncle. Andrew Christy.
Both these men were amonc th first
stockholders of the company, and Andrew
Christy was Its first president.
Mrs. Mary F. Scanlan was born in Ca

A mob of men tn-dav attacked a Lake
Shore and Michigan Southern suburban
train which had on board. In addition to
the other passengers, a party of fifty non
union negroes, who were bound for work
at the Armour plant In the stock jards
The attack took the form of a brickbat
and stone bombardment It occurred just
as the train was pulling oer the Went-
worth avenue crossing. The assailants
were concealed behind a high board fence
One of the ambuscade party looked over
the fence and gave the word to "hre" Just
as the front end of the coach containing
the negroes came to the end of the fence.
The negroes were looking out of th
open car windows when the first tdiower
of stones struck the car near their heads
They Instantly sought shelter under the
seats, where tho other passengers hastily
threw themselves to bear them company.
Tho cars were badlv battered up before
they drew out of range. Several pas
sengers were struck with the missiles.

TO BE CONTESTED,
Strikers' Attorneys Will Give
Five Dava' Notice to Dissolve
Injunction Against Them.
LITTLE KILLING IS DONE.
Packers Say. However, That They
Are Prepared to Care for All
Cattle Received More
Attorreys T. M. Webb and V. J. flnlltvan
will this morning; give the representatives
of the packing-houses c.n the East Side
the legal five-day notice to dissolve the
Injunction oganlst thorn. Issued by Circuit
Judge R. D. "W. Holder at BellsnrlUs Sun
This was decided upon at a meeting; of
the Executive Board at the strikers yes
terday afternoon. This morning a mass
meeting of the strikers will be held in the
auditorium of the City Hall, at which the
injunction and Its powr, and the legal
steps whioh will be necessary to hae it
dls'clvod will be explained by Mr. Webb.
Much surprise was manifested yeterda
when Sheriff G. W. Thomas and Deputy
Charles Cash el appeared In the vicinity of
the stock yards and began the aervioa of
the Inyunotlon papers.
Business Agents Moron and Smith, who
are directing the East St. Louis strike,
were the first to be served. After them
came the officers of the -various, unions
represented in the Packing Trades Council
who are out on a. strike.
Both Moran and Smith eharacterired the
Injunction as wholly unwarranted and
stated that there had been no trouble of
any sort and none was anticipated from
the strikers. While It was tru, they
stated, that they had stationed pickets
about the stock yards, he said that these
men only used argument In keeping non
union men from the National Btook Tarda.
So far as Injuring the plants Is concerned,
he ssld. that the strikers probably would
fight much harder than the deputies em
ployed there to prevent any such action
They said that tho reason for this wan
evident that tho strikers expected to win
and they expected to go bade to their eld
RECETV-TO 4C0 CATTLE.
According to the National Stock Tarda
Company report yesterday. W0 cattle were
received. Both President Knox and Gen
eral Manager C. T. Jones stated that the
Stock Yards Company had been able to
ake care of the cattle that had arrived-
At tho packing-houses, where figuring la
done on the morning estimate, which was
onlv for twenty-five cattle, practically no
killing Was done. It was stated, however,
that the packers were In a position to
1:111 such cattle as would be offered. Rep
resentatives of the packers said that they
had secured a sufficient number of laborers
to do all the work necessary at the plants.
P. Moran and John Smith, the leaders of
the strike, and Jams Sheehan of the Cat
tle Butchers Union stated yesterday that
not a single member of the Cattle Butch
ers' Union had returned to work, and that
the killing that waa being done In the
packir.g-houses was done by men other
than members of the onion.
Lee T. Phllplt. a Deputy Sheriff at the
Stock Yards, yesterday morning escorted
twenty laborers to the Stock Yards from
St. Louis, where they were recruited. Phfl-
pot carried two ble revolvers, but no at
tempt was made to interfere with hlra or
William Hazleton. Otto Blum and Wil
liam Hagan of St. Louis, who were ar
rested by Deputy Sheriff Charles Cashel
Saturday evening on a charge of carrying
concealed weapons while, they were acting
as a guard for a crowd of strike break
ers, will be tried before Justice of the
Peace McKane this momnlng. State's
Attorney McMurdo will be assisted In the
prosecution by Attorneys Tom Webb and
D J. Sullivan.
The National Stock Yards and vicinity
app-ared deserted yesterday. Live-stock
dealers who have closed up their books
for the present, have gone away on a va
cation, while others who are still open for
business had nothing to do.
On "Whlskv Chute" there were hardly
a dozen men at anv time during the day.
The notice of the Injunction had preceded
Its eenlco and the officials of the union
had had time to recall the pickets which
had bem stationed around the plants.
They wore told to go to their homes. Dur
ing tho day the olflce of the union head
quarters were much sought by strikers
who askd for detailed Information on the
LITTLE CHANGE IN ST. LOUIS.
Both the striking meat cutters nnd the
officials of the St. Louis Dressed Beef and
Provision Company agree that thre has
been but little change In the strike situa
tion In St. Loum In the last twenty-four
The strike leaders claim they have the
situation well In hand. They claim that
only ten men. all foreigners, wero em
ployed by the packers yesterday, and that
most of them were compelled to quit be
fore night because of having cut their
fingers and hands severely with the tools,
with the use of which they were not fa
miliar. The packers, on the other hand, say
they employed about sixty men during; the
day and that they worked the entire day,
though no killing was done. The new
men are employed at the same prices that
were being paid the union men when the
strike began. It Is said. They sleep on
cots at tho packing-house and take their
meals thre. It Is reported that they are
not permitted to leave the plant or to
hold communication with anyone on the
outside, except by special prmIss!on.
Thomas W. Crouch, present of tho St.
Louis Dressed Beef and P-ovIiion Com
pany, left the city yesterdav for Atlanta.
He Is expected to remain three or four
days and to return to St. Lo.lis by way nt
Memphis. Whether his trip to the s-outh
at this time has anything to do with the
strike other officials of tho company say
thev do not know. It is asjsrt'd by those
