Pollock says he was sitting with six other !
passengers in the smoking car when two
of the passengers arose and approached
him, one pulling on a mask of long black

"While his companion watched the pas

refused to give it up. The robber then
shot him twice, one ball entering the right

the head with a revolver until he was in- J

at NiRht Merchants Banded Together
to Resist the Strikers;
New. Orleans, Nov. 5. The general
strike of labor m this city was ordered by
the amalgamated council of the Federation
of Labor at midnight last night for noon
today, and the entire city was tied up after
13 o'clock. The recommendation: for the
action was signed by forty-six unions.
There arc fears that violence will result. One
of the most important- features of yester
day's proceedings was the action taken by
Typographical union No. 17. Under the
agreement of Thursday night the presi
dents of the respective labor unions
were instructed to meet at noon yesterday
to take action.
Typos Indorse the Strike.
All the unions, stive the typographical,
indorse i the action of the Amalgamated
council in ordering the strike. These to
the iHiniUr of fifty odd, quit work to
day at noon, and unless the business com
munity agrees to employ none but union
men they will reiimin, out. The Typograph
ical union deei hil by a vote of !4 to 54 not
to strike, but resolutions expressing their
sympathy wire ndopted. Tonight the city
of New lii-lt'n'is will K- in total darkness.
The O.hcr SiUe Determined.
Among the union which will strike are
the tftisworkers' and the, Klectric Light
Trimmers, both strong organiz-it ions. Hi d
it is iit!ii nlt io see how the gt.s and ele.-iric
light companies will, lie able to fill their
places. The merchant s took no move at all
yesterday, and are determined to stand by
their decision not to be dictated to by tin
ionsns to whom they shall employ. It was
reported last night that Mayor Fitzpatrick
is out of the city to evadd responsibility in
the premises. The merchants have applied
to the inuiiii ipal authorities askiiigt.ii.it
comiiiiMons tie given to a number oi citi
zens who will, act as a special police force
during the. strike. ,
Stood OflT by a Kevolver.
Yesterday afternoon a driver of afloat
for a commission bouse was stopped by a
crowd of white and colored strikers who
threatened to pull him off t hi' vehicle if he
did not leave. He drew a revolver arid de
tied them and ikept them at bay until the
arrival of the policy, when four arre.-Ls
were made. Should the lali-or council de
cide to call out the car drivers the people
will walk today.
Capital Aaiimt Labor.
The situation is that the merchants and
other employers are inn struggle against
the demands of lalior.which are "No non-union
men. All the labor unions are alliitil in
the fight Federation. Knights of Latior,
and similar organizations and all theiien
who employ are allied on the other side.
Attempts at arbitration have failed, and
now it looks like a fight to tbe finish and

THE PROPOSED RAILWAY UNION.
What M. W. Hailrett. of Chicago, Knows
About the Matter.
ST. Lou, Nov. 5. M. W. 'Barrett, of
Chicago, secoud vice grand, master of the
Switchmen's Mutual Aid association, (ar
rived iu St, Ixaiis yesterday from St. Joseph
to settle a tiumler of grievances that have,
existed in tbe various lodgt. of the S. M.
A. A. in this city and Fast St. Louis. Mr.
Barrett said, iu regard to the reported fed
eration of railway organizations: "It is
stated. I see, that W. S. Messimer, of St.
Joseph, grand chief of the Brotherhood of
Railway Carmen, is in Chicago for the pur
pose of meeting other grand chiefs to once
more perfect an organization. 1 want it
distinctly understood that the object of
Mr. Messimer s visit to Chicago is far from
attempting to reorganize the old organiza
tion, as none of the grand chief are t here
so far as I know. I know Grand Chief
John E. Wilson is not there, and I have
not been notified of such a step."
Homesiend Men Weakening.
Homestead, Nov. 5. The muttering of
a break in the ranks of the strikers is be
coming more ominous and there is a strong
prospect of a stampede occurring among
the locked out men of the mechanical de
partment befere long. Every effort is be
ing exerted to keep the ranks unbroken.
These workmen are not members of the
Amalgamated association, but as is well
known, came out in sympathy. It was
learned yesterday that three of the most
responsible employes of this department
had applied for their old positions and
would return to work by Monday. A good
deal of the dissatisfaction seems to rest
in the fact that the large fund promised
from Chicago failed to materialize.
