BUILDING TRADES WITHDRAW
AID FROM STRIKERS
IS A SEVERE BLOW TO SHEA
By Their Refusal to Help, Teamsters
Lose One Thousand Dollars a
Week— Union Men Use Air
Guns Against Police
By Asrnclated Tread. (
CHICAGO, May 26.— Rioting broke
out afresh todny in the teamsters' strike
and although nobody was seriously
hurt, there were a number of vicious
. fights in the lumber district, during
v which the police were compelled to use
their clubs and in one instance revol
vers In order to disperse the mob.
A serious light took place at the cor
ner of Canal and Madlßon streets, ad
joining the passenger station of the
Pennsylvania railroad. The wagon of
an express company, although pro
tected by a policeman and a deputy
sheriff, was attacked by a large crowd,
despite the fact that it bore on each
side a large placard declaring that all
people had been enjoined from inter
fering with the wagon by the federal
court. The policeman displayed his re
volver, but the crowd, paying no at
tention to him, rushed at the wagon
and, seizing the wheels, attempted to
overturn it. A riot call brought from
the Desplaines street police station,
four squares distant, a large force of
oflWrs, who dispersed the crowd and
arrested about forty of the most active
in the disturbance.
The worst fight in the lumber district
occurred at Twenty-second street and
Ashland avenue, where a crowd of men
and boys had all through the morning
hurled stones and clubs at every pass
ing lumber wagon. Finally a wagon
on which Police Officer Bagenskt was
a. passenger came along, and the mob
■ greeted it with a volley of stones.
They also threatened to attack the
driver, and the situation was so serious
that the officer, drawing -his revolver,
fired six shots at the crowd, which
broke and fled In wild confusion. None
of the bullets hit anybody.
Disorder in Lumber District ,
... ,'- Thlf«. evening -genera' , rioting-* was
throughout the lumber dls
- trlct and particularly In the territory
near the Intersection of " Thirty'-nfth
street and Center nvemie. The lumber
wagons returning from making deliv
eries were ntttacked by crowds at ev
ery available opportunity. Large num
bers of men armed with clubs, slung
shots and bricks, accompanied by jeer
ing women and excited children, filled
the sidewalks along Center avenue,
Thirty-fifth street, Loomls street and
Archer. averfuo, awaiting the passage
of wagons which were believed by the
crowd to be unguarded.
At Archer avenue and Loomls street
two trucks appeared with one police
man on each. They were Immediately
bombarded with bricks and stones and
scores of air rifles were brought into
play. A bullet from one of these
weapons seriously wounded Policeman
James Fltzpatrick in the hand. The
two policemen drew tVieir revolvers and
fired over the heads of the rioters,
holding them at bay until the drivers
. managed to reach their destination at
the yards of the Rittenhouse &
Embree Lumber company.
The strike today spread in a small
degree throughout the building trades.
There were a number of instances
where woodworkers refused to receive
the material delivered by non-union
teamsters and walked out. This move
in every Instance was made by the men
as individuals only. No official action
was taken by any of the material trades
unions looking to active sympathetic
support of the , teamsters' strike.
Several of the labor leaders In
the ranks of the material trades have
declared within the last twelve hours
that there is no prospect, in their opin
ion, of any complete tie-up of the
building trades by a strike of the men.
There is no movement at present
looking toward a settlement of the
strike. Mayor Dunne today for the
first time since the commencement of
the teamsters' Btrlke declared that he
knew of no contemplated plans for
The mayor talked as though he had
abandoned hopes of a settlement. Al
derman Dever, chairman of the city
council peace committee appointed a
week ago, said tonight that he had
practically ceased work, us the com
mittee could see no avenue In the con
troversy looking toward an adjustment
of the differences between the team
sters and the employers.
At a meeting of the Associated Build
ing trades tonight, at which twenty
nine trades affiliated with the building
industries were represented, it was de
cided that no action will be taken
which will tend to drag the building
trades into the teamsters' strike.
This action on the part of the build
ing hades will go far toward restrict
ing the strike to its present limits, as
it means that ' the members of the
building trades union will work with
materials irrespective of the fact that
(hey are hauled in wagons driven by
[ non-union teamsters.

AUTO TRUCKS TO
MAY USE STREETS WITHOUT A
Large Motor Vehicles, Capable of Car.
rying Many Tons and Hauling
Several Wagon Trailers
Why prevent street cars from carry-
Ing freight and allow It to be handled
by automobile trucks?
This is the question which many are
asking. The automobile truck Is reach-
Ing alarming proportions In some cit
ies in the country and If their use is
encouraged by refusing !'•• street car
companies the right to . .' freight
the streets may be usurped »y persons
who pay no franchise for their use.
.In Los Angeles at the present time!
there are a , number of these trucks,
but only^ one of them ! is built, y^g far,
trt 'the"'proi)or<l6ns"6f a street car." A
truck capable of carrying ten to fif
teen tons of merchandise oh Its own
platform and towing a wagon trailer
with five tons more aboard is certainly
a more undesirable occupant of the
street, which it is free to navigate and
use at nil hours of the day, than a well
equipped and handsomely finished ex
press car run at night and early In the
morning; at least many citizens de
clare this to be true.
The extent to which an automobile
truck for freight carrying can be built
has not as yet been realized, but it has
been said and written In many places
that the time will come when the sub
urban car will be replaced by hand
some and speedy automobile coaches)
run on specially prepared boulevard 3.
Other freight coaches. It Is prophesied,
will carry the light freight.
It is not generally known, but an
automobile line is now being operated
between Tonopah and Goldfleld, carry
ing both passengers and freight. Thla
line has been in operation for several
months and is reported a success.
Traction engines have been used for
years to pull trains of wagons loaded
with freight. Is It not within the
realms of possibility then that Los
Angeles may see the day when the in
terurban and suburban freight will be
handled by powerful auto trucks haul-
Ing tons of merchandise, not only on
the truck itself, but in wagons hooked
up as trailers? many are asking.
Of course, these trucks do not run
at the speed of the touring car, but.
they carry tremendous loads and run
on the street instead of a track. For
this reason they will be much more
dangerous than street cars, according
to citizens who are Interested in solv
ing the problem of handling freight in
the city. They say a car moves on a
track and pedestrians can tell exactly
where It Is going, but If the streets
become crowed with trucks, some , of
which have a train of wagons attached,
the pedestrian will face a serious
problem when he attempts to cross thn
street. > .
Freight carrying by street cars Is
at the present time one of the para
mount Issues In the city nnd those de
siring to havt> the question settled
are looking Into the future in order to
prepare for exigencies that may arise.

Cleared of the charge against him
without ever having entered a court

ST. PETERSBURG, May 27.— While

destroyers In the eastern sea.is'admlt
ted as a possibility by the navalau
thorltles here, they are loath to be
lieve that any serious division of Ro
jestvensky's squadrons has taken place
as reported from Shanghai.
I .They prefer to assume that the un
specified Russian ships reported to be
outside Shanghai, like the six which
entered the port o* Woosung, are units
of the transport fleet without special
fighting value, and that perhaps they
have been sent thither to confuse the
scene for Togo.
A prominent naval strategist said to
the Associated Press: "I don't know
where Admiral Rojestvensky is at
present, but wherever he is you may be
sure that he has his entire fighting
force well bunched and Is not weaken
ing his main squadron in the face of
the enemy. While it is possible, of
course, that he may have chosen to
double sharply to the westward north
of Formosa and to seek Togo in the
eastern sea with the purpose of forc
ing him to accept battle, I am inclined
to believe that he is pursuing a course
northward outside Japan.
Merely Transport Vessels
"The ships whose arrival near Shang
hai has been reported are not even
classed as so-called converted cruisers,
but vessels which, flying the commer

purposes when passing Singapore, and

colliers, with perhaps a guard vessel
