Buo ikltn, N. Y., Jan 29. No attempt
was made by President Plcbardson, of tbe
Atlantic avenue surface roll rood, to send out
cars yesterday. Most of tte new mon have
deserted because of tbe ti..eat of tbe old
mon, and all things considered, Mr. Rich
ardson thought it best not to attempt to run
cars. About 1,000 strikors were assembled
In tho vicinity of the offices of the company
on Atlantio and Third avenues. Tbe police
force is wholly Inadequate to protect the
property of the company.
Several mon who attempted to run the
gauntlet of ihe strikers' pickets In reaching
theofllccsof the Atlantio avenue railroad
yesterday afternoon were sot upon by tbe
strikors and, ulor a severe beutlng, driven
off. Superluioiidont Frost declared that no
concessions will bo mado tho strikers by tbe
company. The present action of the road,
be said, wus taken on orders from the di
rectors, and the board la pledged to support
the stand taken to that end. Mr. Frost says
the situation is very surious and la hourly
growing moro tbroalonln,'. He is convinced
that any attonipt to run cars would result In
blood died and murder. The police force Is
so small thut but little protection can be ex
pected from It and tlie company's cars
would ba at the mercy of the mob if any at
tonipt wore mudo to send thorn out.
At a special meeting yesterday the Com
mon Council adopted a resolution that un
less tbo Atlantic Avenue Railroad Company
runs 1U curs to-day stops will bo tuken to
forfeit the company's charter. The situ
ation is serious. The mon are determined,
though quiot, and thoy bava the sooret sym
pathy of the police and of most of theoiti
tons, owing lo tbe personal unpopularity of
Doacon Richardson and the failure of the
company to consult tbe publio Interests.
Tbo killing of stableman Adams is being

window by Graham. Stetson and Collier, the
three strikers undor arrest, and that Schoon
maker, tho watchman of the stables, was
implicated. Collier, ono of tbe suspected
men, subsequently informed tha coroner
th.it he saw Graham and Stetson carrying
Adam i toward the window. Tho prisoner
woro further remanded.
While somo new employes of tbe Atlantio
avenue road were being transferred last
eveuing under strong police escort from tbe
office to the stables, a mob of soveral thou
sand mon blocked tho way at Twenty-third

OIL IN CONNECTICUT.
Great fcxcltemant Over the Discovery of
OH M -ar touthhnry.
WATEitnusr, Conn., Jun. 29. There Is
groat excitement In this town over the dia
eovory of oil in the weil which was started
in Soutlibury )at summer. : It is located
about ten mllos from hereon the Now Eng
land road, and is near the site of a coal shart
sunk fifty years ago In tbe from yard of
Freeman B. Wheelor, at that time a wealthy
capitalist with plantations In tha South.
Oue night tho shart took fire from a miner'
pipe and burned furiously after all apparent
fuel wus exhausted, and continued to burn
until tha bole was filled up with dirt
Nothing more was thought of the matter
until ex-Senator II. A. Matthews, who owns
a furm near by, began to r.'tioct on tho gas
and oil discovered In tbo West Prospectors
were called and thoy tmid the soil gave un
mlatukable ovldonces of subterranean mys
teries worth investigating. Mr. Mutthows,
E. A. Plerpontand V. R. Baldwin bandodto
gothor and bired an apparatus from Penn
sylvania, and drilling was begun. At a
depth of ona thousand feel there was a scum
uu the surfuca of thu water and then came
tho poohliar sand ' which is always found
with oil or gas deposits, but which may still
exist without either. A little deopor down
traces of gold oro weredi covered.
None of the projectors, however, wero
particularly sanguine, and all took In good
pun tbe jibes that were loadod upon them.
Bui now there baa been brought up from
tbe well sand, and a liquid which, the ex
perts say, sliow that oil has been reached
ut last The leugth'of tbe rope in use would
net allow the drillers to ascertain in what
quantities the oil exl.ts, but a new rope baa
been ordered, and in a few days tho matter
will ba settled. The depth now Is 1,000 feet,
and It Is not usual to find oil even in tho
regu.ar Holds short of 2 000 feet
