IXDIAN APOLIS, March 1. The street car
troul.Ie was solved last night in a rather
summary manner taken out of the hands
of the company entirely and put into the
hands of a receiver who, of course, will
give the meu whatever they demand, as he
said he would have the cars running in
half an hour this morning. Judge bus
kirk, police judfje, put a quietus on the
company yesterday morning and practic
ally made it impossible for Frenzel to con
tinue the fiht hy continuing the cases of
rioters brought before him and deciding
that there should be no police protection
for the cars until all efforts at compromise
had been exhausted. This, it was stated,
was done nt the instance of Mayor Sulli
ran. A Committee to See Frenzel.
Judge Huskirk called for the president
01 me nromcrnooct and told him that if he
would send a committee to the nresidenr.

effort to compromise had been evlinusted
The judge claimed that he was doing this
upon his own responsibility, but the re
port was that Mayor Sullivan had ad-
vvised it. It seems that the effort to se
cure special tioiicemen wna a f.;!,

the few that did appear were mobbed

Hud insolence every moment. The lirst
act of violence occurred earlv in tlie moru
i:ig when Special O'licer Alexander Hums
met a party of sinkers near the Union
station. The crowd at once surrounded
him with angry demons; rations ami one
of the strikers attempted to tear n.f his
badge. The mob surrounded him and
held him like a vise and demanded that he
give up his badge.
"Gentlemen," said Burns, "I am an offi
cer and wearing this badge as such. I de
mand that you let me alone. 71
The Mob Wanted Ittood.
Scores of persons cried out: 'Kill him!"
"Hang him to an electric pole!" The crowd
by this time had reached Illinois stre?t,
near Jackson place. There Chief Splan,
of the detective force, met the mob ami
made his way to the bead of it after a hard
struggle. His annearnnce nut lmve siru.!

brother were allowed to n.i tlmm.rh an,i

Superintendent Colbert to permit him to
resign. And this was the wav it was in
many other cases, until Judce Buskirk so
summarily put the company hors du combat.
Which will be coming in a very short time,
and we must unload our present stock in

25 to 50 per cent on every purchase, loss

caiieu a meeting of the brotherhood. As
if acting in concert, the police superin
tendent dismissed all the extra men and
ordered them to report in the morning for
duty. Mayor Sullivan and President
JiawKins, of the board of public safety,
disclaimed any knowledge of, or participa
tion in, the Buskirk plan of settling the
strike, and were surprised when they
heard that he had asked the brotherhood
to seek a conference with Frenzel. Haw
kins was even more surprised when he
learned that the new police force had
been 9enfto"Their homes by the superin
tendent tinder orders from the judge.

Judge Taylor went to work on the case,
and concluded to appoint the receive?. At
midnight he appointed V. T. Stee'e witn

Frenzel Somewhat Astounded.
The allegation on the pnmn'.aini nn
which Judve Taylor chieflv oaued hu
right of interference is the charge that
"John P. Frenezel was not appointed as
president to conduct the- street car sys
tem of this city, but to secure a corrup
tion fund of 150.000 to secure an extension
of charter." Frenzel hnd no intim.tn

letter expressing a willingness to concede

and Frenzel promised to give them an

Instead of quelling the riotous spirit
which the strikers and their friends have
manifested in numerous acts of violence
for a week past, the preparations made by
the city authorities to protect the street
car company perceptibly intensified the.
feeling, and it needed only an attempt to
owu-i, me cars yesterday to insure a repeti
tion of the scenes which d ism-need t)i. a;i.

TROUBLE FOR THE WHISKY TRUST.
Warrants for the Arrest of the Officers
for Violating the I.nw.
Chicago, March 1. Uncle Sam's officials
re after the officers of the whisky trust.
The federal grand jury at lioston has found
indictments against them for violating the
Bherman anti-trust law, and yesterday
marshals were scouring thiscnV for the
the men wanted, who are Joseph B. Green
hut, of Peoria, president; Herbert I. Ter
rell, of New York, vice president and direc
tor: William X. Hobart, of Cincinnati,
treasurer and director; Warren H. Corn
ing, of Cleveland, O., director; Julius K.
French, of Cleveland, O., director: Iwis
II. Greene, of Cincinnati, director,; Nelson
Morris, of Chicago, director; George J.
Gibson, of Chicago, ex-secretary and direc
tor; Peter J. Hennessey, of 1 'hi-.r, ..,..-..-
tary and director.
Several Arrests Made.
Greenhut and Gibson were arrested at
Peoria and gave bond. Hennessey was ar
rest ed here and also gave bail. Morris is in
California, and will probably go to Bos
ton when he comes east and give bond. The
reason for the arrests at this time is said
to be that marly-all those wanted had pro
posed to go abroad for the summer. The
men indicted who have said anything take
the matter coolly, and say they will lose
no sleep and not worry.
