Milwaukee, May 4. A strike of the
00 employes of the Milwalkee Electa lo
Hallway and Light Co., was Inaugurated
last night, and as each car was run into
the barns motormon and conductor left it
not to return until tho demands of the
union for increased pay, recognition of
the employes organization, and several
minor concessions are granted. The
Electrlo Railway Co. has seen that a
strike was to occur and has been quietly
arranging to fill the strikers' places. A
number of men havo been brought here
from other cities to take tho places of tho
strikers, and are quartered In the soveral
barns. Tho strike was determined on at
midnight at a mass meeting of members
of tho union. It had been determined to
request tho officers of the eleetric road for
another conference today in hopes that an
understanding would be reached.
Railway Officials Would Not Confer.
When It was learned by the officers ol
tho union that men from other cities were
being Imported, and that tho company
was preparing to immediately fill the
places of the old employes, it was deter
mined to ask a conference last night with
the officials of the company. Tho request
was sent to Vice-President Henry C.
Payne, who replied that tho company
would receive no communication from
the men and would in no manner treat
with its employes further. When this
answer was announced at the meeting of
tho union a vote was taken on a motion
to dectoro a strlko and it was carried
unanimously. Tho directors of the road
sent their reply to tho men yesterday
morning. In which they positively refused
to grant two of tho loading requests
mose tor nigbor wagos and the scttloiccnt
of difficulties by arbitration.
Neither Party Slaking Concessions.
The officials, however, slgnlflod their
willingness to discuss the minor griev
ances wltn the mon. General Manager
Wyman sold that no discussion would
alter the determination of the directors to
concede nothing in their position relativo
to wages and arbitration, and the men
said that no agreement could bo accepted
by thorn In which present conditions In
theso respects form a part.

The strlko begun last night will tie up
tho entire electric and street railway serv-
Ico of tho city. The several lines arc
owned by tho ono company and every no-
ployo of the roal is a member of tho
union. In addition to the street railway
employes tho cloctrvo light employes are
involved and will probably strlko today.
They number UJU men and operate
the only electrlo lighting plant In the
city. Unless tho company Is prepared to
man tho power houso the oity will bo

gas. That serious trouble Is expected Is
evidenced by the activity nt police head
quarter and the sheriff's office.
Up to midnight 100 special policemen
hail been sworn In, and more will go on
duty today. Thoj sheriff will have a
large forco of special deputies on duty.
He has also taken steps to confer with The
governor on the advisability of ordering
the Fourth regiment, W. N. G. under

however, unless the local authorities find
themsulves nnable to protect the property

CiTT OT Mexico. May 4. In the case of
Chester Rowe, of Poweschick county,
Iowa, accused of embezzling prAblic
moneys. Judge Aguolar imposed a sen
tense of twelve years and two months im
prisonment in Belim prison. This case
has been a notable oae in the history of
Mexican jurisprudence, as Rowa, after
committing tho offonso, came here and
took out papers of Mexican citizenship,
hoping thus to evade punishment. Hut
under the penal code an offense committed
abroad and continued on Mexican soil is
punishable, and Howe's case will serve aa
a warning for criminals hoping to find e
safe asvlum In Mexico.
Lawyor Alfore, for plaintiff, said that
Rowo only made himself a Mexican to
evade the punishment that awaited him
in Iowa for misappropriation of (38,000.
He had deserted hU family, never having
sent his wifo but f53 from here. Rowe's
defenders claim that the client was not
wholly answerable for tho supposed crime
committed in the United States. The
case was appealed to tho supremo court,
but it Is scuerally believed among law
