TIE-UP Mil FOLLOW CUT
Anwostia Drivers Will Not Stand
BAILWAY UNION WITH THEM
President Grlawold's Strange Actions
Have Aroused Them to the Belief
That Something Is About to Happen.
Itoud Said to Be In No Condition to
Stund a Strike.
There are breakers ahead for the Auacoa
tla and Potomac River Company should it
attempt to carry into execution Its present
plan of making a cut In tbe wages or Its em
ployes. It is officially understood that the
company will make the cut, and in the event
ot this the Railway Protective Union will
probably order a tie up of the line.
The question of policy will be carefully
considered at a meeting of the union to be
held at Bunch's Hall tonight. Although the
cut has not been made, and a plan of action
has not been determined on by the union,
yet from con venations which The Times
had this morning with several of thcofflcers
and a number of tbe other members of tho
organization It is believed to be a certainty
that tho attempted aggressions ot the Ana
cost la Company will be resisted by all the
force and means at tbe disposal of the union.
Some of the railway men with whom The
Times talked said that the road Is belieed
to be so Involved that a slight adverse
pressure would force it to tho wallatid com
pel the appointment of a receiver. The
main line of the road. The Times was told,
pays well enough, but It i paying interest
on indebtedness incurred tn building double
tracking along Mstreet, south fromEleventh
street southeast to 8eeMh street south
west; from Eleventh street southeast to
Congressional Cemetery, and along Se-cond
street south from II to Canal street.
OARRYINO DEAD LINES.
These are dead branches and are said to
eat up the profits or the central line from
Anacostla to the city.
The. union does not believe that the em
ployes should be made to suffer because of
Communication between Anacostla and
Washington must be bad. and if tbe Ana
:ostia & Potomac Railway is not callable
of rendering it and paying its employes
enough wages ,to enable them to live, then
sucli a lino should cease to exist.
There are about forty empunes of the
company nod all bold membership in the
union. Their wages now are $1.50 per
day of tweUe hours, and should a cut be
ordered the only plan of action open to tbe
nnlon is (o oppose it. Last July the men
went out and,tbe union oiieratcd busses be
tween the village and itsparentcity. There
was nothing in the charter of the railroad
requiring it to, run cars, and the president
of the comp;iny(not only Etored the cars
in the rhed, but made preparations to send
the horses into the country and let the road
go to the bow-wows until such time as it
was his pleasure to resume.
The cltlzena ot.the Milage wpre as a unit
on the fide ot tlie employes and the road
was bitterly denounced at public meetings
and on street corners.
LETTER OF CITIZENS.
Then a letter signed by 100 or the citi
zens was sent tq President Grliwold, urg
ing that the locked-out men be re-em
ploed at the advance demanded by them,
and concluding thus:
"If later a reatonable trial to a period
not later than October 1, it f hall appear to
George F. Pylcs'and Julius W.Tolson. that
our Judgmeiit'is'lrtcorrect, we agree to give
the management '.our Learty co-operation,
moral and financial support. In any scale
or wages or policy of management adopted."
The president acceded to this, not oer
ctiecrruily.. About two months ago he Issued a cir
cular letter to tbe men asking them various
questions, or which the following arc sam
ples: "If you were managing a rood would you
employ a large number of men at low pay,
nralr number or men atrair pay, or a small
number or men at big pay-"
"Would you, if a reduction of force were
necessary, retain the men who had served
you with the greatest fidelity;"
A long list of these questions were asked
and the men were directed to write their
answers and file them at the office ot the
company before a given dnte. This cir
cular was a mystery and has continued
such. None of the men understood what it
meant or what object the president had in
Issuing it, only they surmised that It fore
shadowed either a reduction of force or a
reduction of pay. None of them answered
tbe circular. Yesterday President Gris
wold issued tbe following letter to those
persons who had signed the proposal which
closed tbe July strike:
MR. GRISWOLD'S POSITION.
My Dear Sir: During tbe July tie-up ot
theAnacostla line, the writer had the honor
to receive from 100 citizens or our town a
letter, stating their Mews as to the result
of deterring to tbe wishes of our employes as
to the scale of wages, and requesting that it
betried toa period not lnterthan October 1.
In every particular, and not violate legal
requirements, tlie company has lived np to
j-our request. Tbe result lias not been what
we all boned for and believed would be, and
it will be necessary in the near future to
adopt some changes in the management.
Willi" the writer does not at this writing
recall all the names of the 100. he believes
ecry citizen ot Anacostla at heart wishes
the success of its car line. Upon It In a
measure depends the desirability ot eery
home and mucn or the rutur prosperity of
ojr village. The better our facllitlc-s for
reaching the city, the more worth our
houses, and the more easy to get the money
to pay for them.
Ue also need facilities to reach the Gov
ernment Departments, etc It may not
have occurred to all that to pay .in extra
fare would amount to a tax of about
$.14,000 a year on our real estate-: to a
reduction of abont $2 per month on the
rent or each house. If only one member of
the family rode per day. No one is more
desirous than tbe company itself to do nil
it can for Anacostla seir Interest calls
In the near future the owners or the
road expect to adopt a system of rapid
transit. In tbe meantime It will do its
best to deserve your support, trusting
you will give it, so that there ma be no
back-set, bu( Anacostla be ready upon the
return or prosperous times to take the
place that belongs to her the most pros-

Lively Tilt Between Bench and Bar
Enlivened tbe PoUce Court Boa.
Lawyer Moss, of Anacostla fame, got
blmselt Into trouble again this morning
In Judge Kimball's court, and was fined
$10 by his honor for -contempt.
The colored police court lawyer had al
ready been called down by his honor for

Sir. Moss, however, bad simply been try
ing to make a statement of bis defense,
and when the prosecuting attorney ob
jected to his preliminary remarks, tha
Judge told him to cease.
What foundation there was tor this ob
jection could not be exactly made out. but
Moss let up and went nn'wllh the cross
examination. He wasconxklerahly wrought
up, however, and when ills honor tUied
his clients $B apiece for disorder be Jumped
np and said:
"Your honor, I wish to state boldly,
courageously and defiantly that there has
been no legal evidence produced here to

against cither of these dereudants."
"Mr. Moss, I have disposed of this case,
take your seat," said tbe court.
"I'll take my feat, sir, w ben I get ready,"
said tbe Irate lawyer.
Six. Richardson, the prosecuting attor
ney, then Junif ed up and called his honor's
attention to counters language in defying
tbe court and his contempt in disobeying
tbe court, and Judge Kimball said:
"I have had all this kind or. talk I in
tend to stand in this court, you are fined
$10 for your language."
"Then I'll go in the dock, your honor,"
said Moss, and he picked up his bat and
started for the gate.
