San Francisco, Cal., July 25. The
interest of the entire country has
been centered In the Btrlke-bi-eaking
operation in Sun Franoico. Hither
to no facts have been published as
to the methods of Patrick Calhoun
In maintaining hJs nrmy of strike
breakers. The non-union men were
housed In car-barn, watchers were
placed at the doors and every precau
tion taken to prevent newspaper
men and others from gaining admit
tance. In order to study the strikebreak
ers from the Inside, John Dalton
Landor, an English writer of some
note. Recured a job as a conductor.
He says In telling of 'his experience:
"My friends trle.l to dissuade me.
They warned me I might be killed
should I be caught spying. Hut I
resolved to take the chance. I made
up In a shabby outfit und applied for
A stern looking man was In charge
of the employment office.
"I would like a Job as a conduct
or?" I said.
"Ever had any experience?"
"All right. Come around tomor

S2.60 per lu-hour day, with board
On the following monlng I took
my first car out of the barn at Turk
and Fillmore streets. I had no more
idea, of tho work than the man In
the moon, but, as I learned after
ward, was In no worse predicament
than other conductors on their llrst
day out. I had an "experienced
conductor" to give me Instructions,
but he confessed he had been a shoe
clerk all his life.
Fortunately for me, however, my
motorman was a erackerjack a real
live, professional strikebreaker. He
had worked as a ttrik' hi -&icr In
Chicago and St. Louis. IK- was call-
...1 1 LI U Hill " If he t.i.,1 i,,,..M,..r
name no one seemed to know it.

for a job.
This is how h2
appeared in his
1 i; k-is looked dng
Nearly nil passengers were business
people ,or strangers to the city. 1
thought the day's work would be un
eventful, but Jutrt at dark, as we ran
past a practically deserted corner,
a rock the size of a man's head hit
the front platform window even with
the motorman's head.
The glass cut "Black Hill's" face
and fell in shattered atoms at his
"Hill" picked the big stone from
the platform and heaved It back Into
the street. I expected to hear the
motorman curse, but Instead he de
liberately leaned over the controller
with his bleeding face turned in the'
direction from which the rock had
"Whoop 'em up, boys." he shout
ed. "A few more of them and my
wages is up to five bucks a day."
Night in Carbarn
During my first night in the car
barn I gathered a lot of informa
tion. The first thing I noticed was
that the nven appeared to be divided
Into factions. Members of the two
factions did not mingle, but assem
bled In opposite ends of the burn
and occasionally mode sneering re
marks about the other crowd.
1 singled out "lilack Hill," my
motorman, and asked him what it
was all about.
"Those bums In the other crowd,"
said Hill, "are real, cheap, despised
'scabs.' they gei two and u half
bucks a day and ate signed up for a

with those 'cheap skates.' When it
took a little nerve to run a car they
stayed home. l;ut after our nerve

When the "professional strike
breakers" ended their entertain
ment one of the other faction ap
proached and asked for the uso yf
the boxing gloves.
"fro on," replied one of the "pro
fessionals," whose scarred face made
him look as If he had been through
a thousand hard fights, "these gloves
weren't intended for bums."
The low-waged men did not seem
to care about starting trouble with
the "professionals," and I do not
blame them, for they were as hard
faced and desperate a crowd of men
as 1 ever saw assenvb'ed. .
As a general rule, how .ver, life In
the barns Is a rather monotonous
existence, according to t'le testimony
of a couple of strikebreakers. Th
average dinner consists of boiled beef,
potatoes, bread and butter, pudding
and some kind of stewed fruit, and
there Is plenty of everything. The
beds are white cots, much the same
as those used In army barracks.
Hut the whole thing Is rough ami
ready and heart-breaking to the aver
age working man used to the sweat
"Will any of your friends Quit?'
"No," he said; "I didn't quit sore
I didn't try to hurt the company
As I say, I was well paid."
"Where will you go and what will
"I expect to land In New York
That's where I signed from. I'll rest
un a bit. and when a new strike
breaks out I'll be ready to get Into
the harness atrain.
"Well, s'long. boys." shouted Hill
as the. gatemnn let him through the
buracks inclosure Into Filmore
For a moment there was silence In
"That fellow- is one wiise bum
ejaculated one of Hill's admirers.
"And say," said another, "I guess
he isn't dirty with tVilhouns money
He certainly did get some nickels.
And with that the men turned In
to the barracks, nnd I heard , of
"lilack Hill" no more.

Is the popular cry throughout Euro

the cry of the present day is "Long
live Dr. King's New Discovery, King
of Throat and Lunar Remedies!" of
which Mrs. Julia Ttyder Paine,
Turro. Mass., says: "It never falls
to give Immediate relief and to
quickly cure a cough or cold. "Mrs.
Palne's opinion Is shared by a ma
