strike sympathizers are under arrest
to-night for battering in tho windows
of street cars and beating the crews.
Notwithstanding the presence of
IS companies of the Florida National
fluard the situation to-night is more
serious than it has been at any Hmo
since the strike began, more than a
week ago. Citizens are arming them
selves In preparation for further
trouble. The scenes of disorder to
day were In tho down-town as well as
tho outlying districts of tho city.
Officials of the Jacksonville Trac
tion Company, owners of the local
railway system, said to-night that the
company would go into tho United
States District Court hero to-morrow
and ask for an injunction against the
strikers to prevent further violence.
Humors aro afloai in labor circles
that a general sympathetic strike of
all union workmen hore will be call
ed lo aid lh<' strikers.
Through the efforts of a committee
of ibo board of trade the company
late to-day agreed to all the demands
of the strikers except recognition of
the employees' anion. The strikers
refused to agree lo any sell lenient
that did not include recognition of
the union which was the central
cause of t ho st rike.
