clash in the SchlDerplatz between'
French troops and the population, re
sulting in the killing of six Germans
andthe wounding of some two score
others, was followed by a strong dis- (
play of French military force, which'
brought the restoration of order by
the time darkness had sot in.
It was a rumor that the French had ,

The firing attracted a great crowd'

The French began to bring up rein
forcements, four tanks between solid
columns of soldiers rolling In ready,
Tho German police aided in the ac
tion taken to restore order, quickly '
stationing groups at strategic polnt3
to control the crowds.
A French staff officer doplored the
happening in conversation with the'

' ' French Regret.
' "The French authorities extremely
: regret this occurrence," he said.
The earlier part of -the day was
! passed by the French in completing '
I their occupancy of Frankfort. It Is
understood that an entire division is
employed in Frankfort and its vicinity,
: but plans w.ere to reduce this force
I later to tho size of a regiment.

that the newspaper would not b3 pub

J "Tho invaders were white yester

French troops was conservative, how
ever, and no criticisms were heard.
In mid-afternoon .' some of tne
French detachments marched out to
vake up positions in the suburbs, and
the report immediately gained clreu-

Excited pedestrians ran to the street

ROBBERS FLEE AS
BIG GONGS RING
LOS ANGELES, April 8.
Four men attempted early to
day to rob the First National
bank of Hynes, about twenty
miles from Los Angeles, but
were frightened away when, in
cutting into the vaults, they set
off a burglar'alarm which rang
not only in the bank, but in
nearby homes of attaches of the
institution. As they fled in an
automobile the awakened at
taches fired revolvers and shot
gams at them. The robbers did
not return the fire.
The robbers "jimmied" the
bank's front door and apparent
ly went directly to the vaults.
Their flight was so hasty that
they left behind their tools, in
cluding an acetylene tank, a
blow torch, drills, hack saws,
sledge hammers and a pair of
rubber gloves. -
This was ths second recent at
tempt to rob the Hynes insti
tution. The first failed when a
young man tried a daylight
holdup. Tiie president of the
bank, angered at the brisk de
mands of the robber "knocked
him out" with his fists and he

Outlaw Group Forms I
Branches In Several I
Big Terminal Cities I
CHICAGO, April 8. Today will decide whether the railroad brotherhoods
can control their men or whether the unauthorized and "illegal" strikes l
sweeping railroad yards from Buffalo, N. Y., to Los Angeles, Cal., have so dis-
Irupted the established unions that the leaders have lost all control. '
Railroad officials and union leaders here alike agreed that today would
I bring the real test of strength .between the strongly entrenched group of ''H
j brotherhoods and the "outlaw" unions which have sprung up under leaders
who voice their dissatisfaction at what they declare is the failure of the '
brotherhood officials to get more money for their men. !
J A review of the situation shows: I
I Chicago, eight to ten thousand railroad men out; freight service reduced j
to about 30 to 50 per cent of normal; 35,000 packing house employes forced
out of work by the shutdown. j
Kansas City, 2500 men. on strike; nine of the thirteen roads entering the I
( city affected. :
Buffalo, 2700 men idle, seven railroad yards tied up; an embargo in ef- f
feet against all freight. $
Los Angeles, 500 to 1000 men on strike; three transcontinental lines af
fected. Toledo, Ov 600 switchmen, all traffic expected to-be at a standstill with- 'JH
in 24 hours. ,
Gary, 300 men out. Strike. spreading.
St. Louis, East St. Louis and Milwaukee, men are holding meetings to

LOS ANGELES, Cal., Apri) S The railroad strike has spread to Los ' ;
Angeles where, early today, the Yardmen's association said between 500 : H
and 1000 men on the Southern Pacific, Santa Fe and Salt Lake' lines had H
walked out in sympathy with the strikers on eastern roads. ( H
The strikers said their action here was the result of being underpaid and H
predicted the entire Pacific coast, it not the whole nation, would be affected ; H
soon. ; H
The walkout here, which is in sympathy with the unauthorized strike , ' H
in the Chicago switching district, came with practically no warning. Men H
on the Southern Pacific took action first, claiming more than seven hundred H
walked out of the yards, and declaring the movement had extended to all H
Southern Pacific lines from San Francisco along the coast, to El Paso, Texas. H
SALT LAKE YARDS HIT.
One hundred men of the Salt Lake yard forces were the next reported H
out, followed, it was said by approximately 100 of the Santa Fe yardmen. H
The walkout includes firemen, engineers, switchmen, oilers and othe- H
railroad yard workers. They said the strike was called by an independent H
organization as a protest against the conduct of the railroad brotherhoods in ' fl
Chicago and as the beginning of a nation-wide move to demand "an ade- 1 H
quale increase" in wages. ' ' I
MORE WAGES WANTED. 5
The men said a "considerable increase" in wages would be demanded of ;
the railroads. They did not discuss this in definite terms, but it was under- 1 i H
stood the demand would have a 33 per cent basis. This, it was said, meant .
yardmen would ask 95 cents an hour and foremen $1-00, with time and a ''I
half for overtime and Sundays and double time for a second eight-hour shift. t I
j They asserted they had assurance all railroad union men would back the - '
; movement "to the limit." . I
"We are underpaid," the men said. "We have had nothing hut promises B: I
of more pay for the last two years. The cost of living is so high 'we must P, I
have more pay. When we could not get it any .other way,- .we walked ouL" g j!
The strikers were scheduled to hold a meeting today. I I
CHICAGO. April S. Tho "insurgent" railroad strike, which began a W -,
week ago in Chicago had spread to other parts of the United States today. B '
East and west freight movement across the continent, already restricted H $
by the Chicago strike, was hampered further by switchmen striking at such jj ' !
strategic gateways as Buffalo and Kansas City, and at such centers as Joliet I j
and Decatur, 111., and Gary, Ind. 1
Strikes were threatened today at Milwaukee, SL Louis and East St. , J
Louis, openings to the northwest and the southwest. Strikers predicted also, M
that 25,000 men in northern New York would join them, cutting off freight 1 fi
traffic from Buffalo to New York and Boston. '
The Yardmen's association, insurgent organization which called the ;
strikes, was forming branches in numerous terminal centers, reports indi- j j
j Railroad brotherhood officers who came to Chicago to assist railroad - fl
managers in an endeavor to break the strike, declared that reports for today fl
I would reveal traffic in Chicago yards to be at least 60 per cent normal.
The strikers, however, claimed that by tonight no switch engines would ,8,
I be operating in the Chicago district. Officers of the Yardmen's association i 1
j held to their estimate of 16.500 switchmen out in the Chicago district in ad- I ! .
idition to engineers, firemen and engine hostlers. , ' ,':
1 The insurgent enginemen's association hnd enrolled 10,000 engineers, ( it
I firemen and hostlers at Chicago, according to its officers.
I H. E. Reading, organizer of the United Enginemen's association, denied, i i
i however, 'that enginemen were on strike. "They are not working bcause with ,
the switchmen idle there is no work for enginemen," Reading said. "Wc
sjmply joined this organization because wc were tired of the old one domi- -M
nated by Its officers." i
The striking switchmen claimed that engineers and firemen had aban -, t
doned engines on tho Chicago, Burlington &. Quincy; -Chicago, Milwaukee &. 'J ljj
SL Paul; the Chicago & Northwestern, and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa ; jj:
Fe railroads at Chicago. : I &
Arrangements were made for a conference today at Cleveland of the J ,vj
chiefs of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, Locomotive Engineers and ' k
Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen. 1 i At
W. G. Lee, president of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, declares a
that reports of more than 5,000 switchmen out in the Chicago district were Hv
incorrect. He said the district membership did not exceed 5000. Railroad . , :
managers repeated that they estimated the strikers did not number more -i ( y
than 2700 in the Chlcngo district, exclusive of engineers and firemen. ' u
Officers of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen continued with their r' J S
plan of bringing loyal members to Chicago to take the places of strikers. A I .1
dispatch from Sheridan, Wyo., said that several members had started from 4 ; K
there to join thOBO from points nearer Chicago. .1 "!
Industries throughout the Chicago district had begun to feel the effects ; f I
of tho strike seriously today.
