A STRONG FORCE OF MILITARY IS

Crisis of the Street-Car
Strike is Here.
CALLS FOR TROOPS
Says He Believes Imminent
Danger Now Exists.
IN VARIOUS PLACES
They Proved Conclusively to the City
Authorities Yesterday that the Po?
lice Force Is Not Numerically
Strong Enough to Cope
Both sides are standing im?
movable in their attitudes in the
street-car strike situation. No
sign of yielding is apparent.
The company has nothing to
sajr, but their old terms. The
men are reported as united
as on the first day of the strike.
The ministers of the city have
prepared a proposition looking
to deferring further striking by'
perpetuating the agreement of
last August. The company will
not accept any temporary set?
tlement; the men.will not yield
absolutely. It is more and more
evident that the struggle is one
of resources and endurance.
The ordering of sixteen com?
panies of militia under arms, will,
it is hoped, maintain order and
without bloodshed. The com?
pany hop&s, with the protection1
afforded, to be able to run its
I cars over all lines.
I There wore two outbreaks
yesterday, one at the Twenty
ninth street car sheds, the other
near Main and Tine streets.
Several of the non-union car
men were injured, none danger?
A large mass-meeting was
held in Manchester last night,
at which Messrs. Orr and
Griggs of the strikers and oth?
ers made addresses.
The crisis of the street railway strike Is
at hand. Owing to tho Inability of the
small poll? force to effectively patrol so
large an expanse of territory as that
reached by the various Unes of the Vir?
ginia Passenger and Power Company, the
officials of that company applied to the
Mayor to insure them protection of their
property and the lives of their employes.
Mayor Taylor addresses a communica?
tion to the Governor calling attention to
the "tumultuous and riotous resistance of
the law and the Imminent danger which
now exists," and asking for aid In the
restoration of poac? and good order.
The Governor promptly issued orders
through the usual channels, calling Into
service as soon as they can be mobilized
nil the twelve companies of the Seventieth
Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, the
Richmond Blues' Battalion and tl?? Rich?
mond Howitzers, The troops are placed
under the orders of the Mayor.
Orders were issued through the adju?
tant-general's office to tho live companies
of the Seventieth Regiment in this city
and to tlie companies at Lynchburg, Dan?
ville, Farrmille, Alexandria, Fredericks?
burg, Staunton and Clinrlottesville, and
to tho Richmond Blues' Battalion and
the battery of tho Richmond Howitzers,
In obedience to those orders the Lynch'
; burg, Farmville, Alexandria and Freder
icksburg companies started last night on
special trains and arrived in the city
parly this morning, being quartered at the
Marshall Street Armory nnd the other
armories of tho city. The other companies
will roach the city early this morning and
all will report to Colonel George Wayne
Anderson, commanding the regiment, who
in turn is under orders of Mayor Richard
Followed Riotous Scenes.
The ordering out of the military was
the absorbing and engrossing feature of
the strike yesterday. It followed close
upon tho riotous scenes at and In the
vicinity of the car barns at Twenty-ninth
and P. Streets early yesterday afternoon,
when two of the car men were more or
less hurt and the cars roughly used, This
was followed by a very threatening mob
demonstration at and near Main and Vine
Streets, about 5:30 P. M. when a cn? was
densalled and all behind it blocked. A
great crowd assembled there and a rescue
party of ten or twelve heavily armed
guards was hurriedly dispatched to the
scene from the resenvolr barns. A second
force of guards was held in reserve. For?
tunately the cars and the men on them
were rescued from the mob without diffi?
culty, hut only after the men manlng the
cars, or some of them, had been roughly
used by the mob.
These two demonstrations, following
those of Monday, sufficed to demonstrate
that efficient though thu police force un?
doubtedly la, It 4s not sufficient in num?
bers to guarantee the protection which
the company demanded. "When tt was
deemed useless longer to deny this fact,

for protection, the Mayor and the Gov?

completed for its reception.
Hundreds of men, who were at

children, lined the sidewalks and fll
tho streets. Obstacles of all kinds w<
placed on the tracks, missiles were

The men who were sent to the she
at Twenty-ninth and P Streets were

pearance of a man of steel and who h

With him were ten men armed wl

The crowd was In no merry mood i
the sight of the car. They moved res
lessly and a conflict might have occurn
at a moment, the result of which rolgl
have been bloodshed and death.
CAR WAS STARTED.
Ever and anon, as the car approache
the shed by easy stages through the Ion
lino of obstructions, a rock would com
through tho nlr and land with a dul
sickening thud upon tho head or som
other portion of the anatomy of the luck

tho rock-thrower would do his work fror
cover. Alleyways, windows, trees an
fences were his favorite shields. Non
of them came Into the open, feeling tha
they were breaking the law and amenabl
to Its punishment.

From the time the car with the craws
on board left the Reservoir sheds to the
end of the trip, Incidents marked the
progress of tho men. Staid old Clay Street
awoke and found Itself In the midst of
pandemonium. Great mischief was done
by, children, urged on by their mothers
and grown-up sisters. Rocks, barrels and
boxes were placed along the track, and
tho quiet and dignified thoroughfare ha^
been transformed Into a Babel of shouts,
howls, calls and unearthly noises of every
These sounds followed In the wake of
the car, arid not until the sound of the
, speeding vehicle had long died out In
the distance did anything like normal con
i dltlons prevail.
As the car neared the sheds, the size
of the crowds Increased, and the disorder
became more IntenBe. Car windows werd
broken with rocks, and the shouts from
the crowds were almost savage.
In view of the large numbar of cars
being- run. the weakness of the police
force became apparent. Thero were
scarcely enough men to man the cars,
even with one officer on each car Tlio
result was, therefore, that there were
only four men available for cervine at
the sheds, and these men, as energetic as
they wore, wore as leaves In the wind
against tho crowds.

OLD CADETS NUMEROUS
Dr. J. N. Upsher Delivers a Splendid
Address?Survivors to Be Decora?

John S. Wise Speaks.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LEXINGTON, VA.. June 23.?"New Mar?
ket!" Every yell given at the Virginia
Military Institute has ended with that
word, and every feature of the exercises
has impressed upon the beholder that this
commencement is designed to honor the
men who gave to the Institute imperish?
able glory in the charge they made on
that memorable day in '6-4.
Seventy survivors of tho historic charge
are here, and to-day they have been the
recipients of honors such as are bestowed
upon few men In tho course of their lives.
Fiom sixteen States tho old cadets have
come, and every one has been delighted to
honor the gallant hoys of '61.
Lexington is overflowing with visitors.
The two hotels are turning away intend?
ing guests. Every- bonrdlng-housa is
lillerl, and the barracks are accommodat?
ing about as many visitors as possible.
The features of tho ceremonies to-day
were the speech of Dr. J. N. Upshur, of
Richmond, a N$w Market survivor, in
Jackson Hall this morning; the unveiling
of tho New Market battle monument im?
mediately afterwards; tho great meeting
of the alumni this afternoon and their
decision to decorate with crosses of honor
tho survivors of the battle of Now Mar?
ket; the sham battle and the nlumnl ban
nuo't and the cadet hop to-night.
^ THREE THOUSAND STRONG.
Three thousand people from various sec?
tions of tho State were here to-day to
hear the addresses. A third of them were
old cadets or of the families of men who
got their training at the Institute.
It was nftor 11 o'clock whon Captnin J.
K Andorson, Jr., called to order the
nudienco which was packed Into Jackson
Hall The New Market boys, seventy In
number, occupied seats of honor in front
of tho rostrum. On their right wero seat?
ed alumni of every class save New Mar
ket* to the left wero thirty members of
Gar'land-Rodes Camp of Confederate
Veterans, Lyiiohburg, under Dr, C. B.
Fleet, all in uniforms.
When those old New Market boys came
marching into the hall, with their old
commander, General Scott Shlpp. at their
heud there was a demonstration of ap?
plause that threatened to take off the
roof. Men and women nrose to their feet,
und cheering, stamping and waving
of handkerchiefs evidenced the enthusi?
asm of tho assemblage.
GREETING TO 6HIPP.
The old boys had formed in the quad?
rangle, and It would hardly be an ex?
aggeration to say that the wild cheering
which greeted General Shlpp when he
walked through the sally-port and ad?
vanced across the green to the head of
the column was followed by half the
men In ranks rushing forward to eelr.a
the baud of their old commander, end
nearly all of them ended by throwing
their arms around him.
The shot-lorn flag which tho battalion
carried at New Market was the,decora?
tion of tho rostrum. There was a great
deal of bunting displayed over the speak?
ers' chairs, and there were greut masses
of flower? bunked on the front of tho
stage, but I had not Absolved any of
these- until my attention was called to
them, so busy was I gazing at the old

Provide for a Board of Arbi?
tration to Settle Duration
of Last August's
In the parlors o? the Y. M. C, A.'yester?
day afternoon there gathered a number of
the pastors of the city Intent upon doing
their best, howeiver, little it might be,
towafSr^openlng the way for an adjust?
ment of the present difference between
the street railway company and Its em?
ployes, and ending tho reign of terror
which has begun here.
To all appearances tho movement ..was
and is foredoomed to failure. The majority
of tho pastors were fearful that tho men
would not accept and act upon tho propo?
sition they made, but hope suddenly opens
up that such need not be the case. Tho
communication from tha conference was
laid beforo two members of the Executive
Committee of tha union last night and
received favorable comment from them.
Both pledged themselves to vote for It,
and to lend It their support.
But an obstacle presents Itself on the
other side. It Is not believed that the
company would come up to tho point of
agreeing to a proposition which, though
It would put the men hard at work again,
would open up the prospect of arbitration
two or three months hence. In view of this
fact, It is beller.ed that the movement will
fall flat. Nobody will be surprised at this?
least of all tha pastors themselves.
The meeting of the pastors was held
at 5 o'clock in the afternoon In the par?
lors of the Y. M. C. A- The session
was an adjournment from Monday, and
was heldi behind closed doors.
Tho report of a committee appointed
at the first meeting to draft a paper
embodying a proposition designed to
open a way for tho adjustment of tho
difficulties between the^ men and the
company was submitted, and was dis?
cussed nt length. Various changes were
mncio, and when tho report emerged
from tho bedato it bore somewhat of a
different aspect. Whether or not the
discussion turned upon any other points
Involved In tho controversy Is a thing
which could not bo ascertained.
One of the most Important features of
the report was eliminated, to the great
dissatisfaction of one or two of those
present. It was >at first expected that tho
proposition of 1h? pastors was to be
laid beforo tho street railway company
as well as the men. (But It was recalled
that while tho strikers had asked for
some advice, the company had not, and
hence It would not bo Just proper to ten?
der It. The decision therefore was to
the effect that the paper should be laid
beforo the men alone, and to tho men it
As finally amended and submitted^ the
paper read as follows;

The grand climax of the street rail?
way strike situation Is thought to have
beta reached hero 3'esterday afternoon,
when, at the request of Mayor Richard
M. Taylor, who was appealed to by
Major Mlles M. Martin, counsel for tha
companies. Governor Montague, through
Acting Adjutant-General Jo I^ane Stern,
ordered Colonel George Wayne Ander?
son to report to his Honor, the Mayor,
with such portions of. his regiment (the
Seventieth Virginia) as .should be found
necessary to aid the civil authorities to
prevent violations of the law. In addi?
tion to this, the Howitzers and the
Blues and one unmatched company from
Stnunton wero ordered ? out, making six?
teen companies In all, aggregating nearly
?1,000. all under the command of Colonel
Anderson. As a result, the city Is prac?
tically under military rule, and no trou?
ble seems to be anticipated.
Tho ordering out of the military to
take a hand In the affair caused no great
surprise, as most of those In close touch
with the'situation wero hourly expect?
ing that this would be the ultimate and
almost inevitable result.
Many Conferences Held.
There were conferences at both the
rit y Hall and the Governor's mansion
lato In the afternoon, and they culmi?
nated In the Governor's order through'
the acting Adjutant-General at 5:30
o'clock. It was only a little while later
that armed and uniformed men were
keeping vigil over erstwhile crowded
street corners and dispersing congrega?
tions of persons wherever found.
The call resulted from' an urgent ap?
