No Hope of Arbitration.
Chicago, Nov. I7.-A11 hope of arbi
tration for the Chicago City railway
strike was abandoned when General
McCulloch taid: "Nobody connected,
with this company is thinking about
arbitration." Business Agent M. II.
Collius, of Electrical Workers' union
No. I), informed Manager McCulloch
that he had been instructed, to call a
strike of all members of that union in
the employ of the City railway and
that he had ordered a strike. All the
union members quit work as soon as
the announcement of the business
agent was made to them.
Team.sters Help the Strikers.
It became evident at neon that the
sympathetic attitude of the teamsters
toward the strikers was more promi
nent than at any other time since the
strike began, and numbers of the driv
ers of trucks, express wagons ami rigs
had planned to make as many block
ades as possible in the downtown dis
trict. Sergeant Ryan, of the Central
detail, sought to solve. one phase of
the difficulty by ordering that no team
sters be iierniitted to turn into Clark
street. "Teamsters have gone blocks
out of their way," aid Sergeant Ryan,
so as to blockade cars here."
Confidence in the Karly Hours.
Relying upon the abundant police
protection assured him. aud feeling con
fident that the murmuring teamster
sympathizers would, not dare to carry
into execution their, alleged plans of
bloc-kading. General Manager McCul
loch. of the City railway, decideel to
mark the lifth day of the strike with
a plan for running Wentworth avenue
trolley tars on a regular schedule.
Twenty-five cars left the barns, and
after maintaining a high rate of speed
to Thirty-ninth street, worked their
way through the ja)ns that occurred
at various downtowh points and car
ried more passengers than at any time
since the strike was jirecipitated.
Tracks Are Again Blocked.
But by the noon hour the police had
been compelled to arrest many team
sters who had formed temporary block
ades by taking their heavily laden
wagons upon the car tracks. Incipient
riots marked the progress of some of
the trolley cars in j Clark street be
tween the Twelfth rffreet viaduct and
Van Buren street nfud two attempts

Had to Use Their Clubs- .
The plan for a regular schedule for
the big trolley coaches disappeared.
Once the bluecoats had to club back
the throngs of strike sympathizers dur
ing the skirmish at Polk and Clark
streets. At Thirty-ninth street and at
other points along the line of street
car operation many citizens verbally
denounced the police and a growing
bitterness between the citizens and the
bluecoats was remarketl. So the right
was waged all day, and the cars were
kept running, but passengers had a
very strenuous time. At night the cars
were again taken off.
