Beooelts, Jan. 8t The executive
board of district assembly 75, K. of P.,
waited on President Norton with an offer
to arbitrate Norton rc-fusfd point blank.
The executive committee thereupon issued
the following manifesto "To Whom It
May Concern:" "Our representatives,
mm-eablo to instructions, called upon Ben
jamin Norton. Esq.. president of the At
lantic Avenue Hallway cmnpany.and pre
sented or offered to accept Mr. William J
Richardson, a director in the Atlantic Rail
way company, and secretary -treasurer of
the American and New York State Street
Railway union, of twenty-seven years
experience in railroad affairs, as a per
son to whom we would unconditionally
submit our grievances for adjustment, in
accordance with the announced resolu
tion, but Mr. Norton declined to treat
with our representatives in any way."
Confldeaca of the PabUe Increasing.
There is a greater public confidence in
the maintenance of public order now than
t any time since the strike commenced.
The city is about free from the qague ter
rorism which kept the public mind at a
high tension and served to increase the
danger of serious collisions and outbreaks.
The mere rowdyism which is looking for
troublo and wants to destroy property
property from wantonness has been pret
ty well suppressed.
Companies Coaadeat of Winning.
The refusal of President Norton to ar
bitrate indicates that the companies feel
no nliatcnient of confidence that they
will win the fight. The success which
the Atlantic Avenue company has met
with In its efforts to operate its lines un
doubtedly had its influence upon Presi
dent Norton in this matter. When it was
found that the linemen were at work as
usual repairing the damage done during
tli.i night Master Workman Connelly de

Later in the day. after the opisndo at

Men Locked la a 1111 Apply to a So
preme Coart Jolj(e.
During a charge of the troops yesterday
strikers were driven into Odd Fellows'
hall and locked in. When the charge was
over the men demanded to be released,
bnt the doors of the building were kept
locked and the men kept In confinement
for several hours. A writ of habeas cor
pus was Immediately applied for and
made returnable at 3 p. m. Before the
time arrived when General McLeer was to
make an answer in the supreme court be

and the writ was rendered Inoperative by
When the case was called at 4 o'clock
a statement was read on behalf of General
Mcfueer In which a denial was made of
the allegation that he had locked up the
W men or had ordered that they be locked
up; further it was said upon learning of
the imprisonment of the men be had or
dered their immediate release, which or

the men had thereupon departed to their

day so badly that his life is in danger. As
a company of tho Twenty-third regiment
was escorting a Hicks street car Thomas
Kearney is said to have thrown a number
of bricks at it from a roof. Some of the
soldiers were hit by the missiles and one
of their number took deliberate aim and
shot Kearney in the side. Kearney was
at work on the roof at the time and was
attracted to the edge by the excitement of
the crowd below in consequence of the
passage of the first car through Hicks
street. Kearney denies throwing any
thing. There were a larger number of alleged
rioters arrested than probably on any pre
vious day of the strike, and the soldiers
were becoming more vigorous in the use of
their arms, the result being quite a list of
people who have been clubbed with mus
kets and bayonetted for refusing to "mora
on" when ordered. There were also m

Fifty-nine cars in all were run out of the
East New York depot, thirty on the Ful

as the cars began to come in they were
held in the depot for the night. Quiet
ness prevailed at Kidgewood at 7 p. m.

THE CENTER OF DISTURBANCE.
Strikers Bonsed by u Attempt to Operate
Another Line of Cars,
From early morning until past noon
there was more excitement in the locality
of Third avenue and the railroad depot
than there has been since the strike com
menced. No attempt had been made until
yesterday morning to ran cars over tho
line, and the announcement that the road
was to be operated aroused the strikers
and their friends from the state of quics
cnuc in which they hud been. A iiulsx-y
street car reached the depot at 11 a. in.
tilled with fifty non-union men. who were
at once lodged in the deiot. Every corner
on tho cast side of the avenue wo
li.rvr.5M by the strikers and their sym
pathizers, while iu front of the stables
were drawn KM men of tho Twenty-third
regiment under Captain Thorno.
1 he strikers contented themselves with
hooting and jeering the militia, but com
mitted no act which warranted their dis
persion. Some hours previous to the run
ning of tho first car the repair wagon of
tho Brooklyn Heights company went
down Third avenue to clear the track b
tween Fifty-first and Fifty-second streets.
The bl jek between these two streets was
filled with bricks stones, lumber and
trunks of trees which had been cut in the
vicinity, so as to rendor tho running of
cars an impossibility. The repair wa?on
was manned by twelve men and escorted
by troop A.
hen they reached tho PerHiod club
the strikers' heudquartcrs at Fifty-fifth
street -o me 3 men who had assembled
there jeered and denounced the escort and
hurled several vol leys of stones nt the men
who were removing the obstacles. Lieu
tenant Badglcy, who was in charge of tho
troop, called on them to disperse. The
strikers replied by another avalanche of
stones. Lieutenant Ba?ley then ordered
his men to charge and strike the rioters
with the flat of their sabres. On this be
ing done the strikers ran away.
Aluut 7 o clock last evening men of
the rkjventy-lirst regiment had a breeze
with a mob of 15U men who bad smashed
the windows of cars of the Ralph Avenue
line at Ji.il ph avenue ami tMimpter street.
Colonel Green, of the Seventy-first, hear
ing the rumpus, telephoned to Captain
Keck, who was stationed near the dis
turbance, and tho kilter vtiLa twenty
men hurried to the spat and jablx-d and
butted the crowd away, so that the cars
resumed their way, accompanied by tho
troops. On tho return trip a crowd was
at the place of tho previous trouble but
another detachment cleared the way.
