District Attorney Earlmrt yesU-nlay after
noon fili-'l suit in t!;e United SStates circuit
court for an injunction ordering the strik
ing miioiis back to work. The petition
charges the unions with olistructinf; com
Sieroe and blockadin the business of the
eity. The charges are brought against the
committee of five of the Amalgamated
coujicil and the different president of the
striking anions. The mrt ordered the
offenders to appear in coVrt tomorrow.
Striker Yielding-to Pressure.
Owing to this action and also to other
natters referred to in the following the
strike is expected to be declared off today.
The arms of the rolunteer militia, which is
to augment the regular state troops, ar
rived yesterday and the troops are in read
iness for action, but the yas and electric
lights were started without any but police
protection and the call for troops was ex
pected to hinge upon the running of the
street cars. The president of the street
ear companies could not arrange to start
before today and the attempt was poi
poned until 10 o'clock this morning. The
first cars will be run on St. Charles avenue,
which is wide enough to permit the move
nient of troops.
Coventor and Labor Leaders.
The governor hiid the arbitration com
mittee of the strikers before him last even
ing, and tkl them what he intended doing
today. Ho said they were responsible for
the crisis, and the responsibility for any
bloodshed would be upon their heads. The
committee promised to convene the A reml
gamated council last night and decide the
question of calling the strike off. The de
liberation was going on last night, and the
Strike of three weeks' duration is likely to
end at any moment.
LATER There are conferences going on
between the merchants, the strikers, ui.d
Governor Foster and his advisers. The
strikers have made a proposilion to return
to work almost unconditionally. The mer
chants are considering the proposition, and
it is thought that they will accept it. The
strikers appear to be very restless and tired
of the tight, and are more than anxious to
STREET CAR MEN GIVE TROUBLE.
Columbus, O., Citizens Have to Walk In
Coi.t MHUf, O., Nov. 11. The street cur
men in this city are on a strike and thecity
is in a turmoil. The company is trying to
run its cars and the entire police force was
called on duty yesterday morning. The
police were mussed at the barns, and as it is
the headquarters of the strikers they were
there in force, too, at 8 o'clock. Special po
licemen had been stationed at the street
crossings all along the line to prevent an
ticipated blockading of the streets by strik
ers and sympathizers. The police were or
dered to disperse the strikers and this they
did without resistance. Twenty policemen
then boarded two motors that were ready to
leave. The two motors continued to make
occasional trips from Winner avenue to
the court bouse and return, loaded with
police until noon, when two more were
One Cbm of Interference.
Twice the motors were burned out while
going along High street by careless band
ling by the new motormen and great
crowds of sympathizers gathered around
to hoot at and laugh at the nonunion men.
The presence of the policemen, however,
prevented any interference except in one
case. Charles Rouse, an ex-motorman, at
tempted to dump a load of coal on the
track in front of a motor near the court
bouse, but was prevented and arrested.
Several unions which held meetings
Wednesday indorsed the strikeland word
was received from the Panhandle and sev
eral other shops that they would be on
band at the proper time.

Mayor Korb has been indufatigable in

A conductor refused to accept a mutilated
dime in payment of fare. A dispute fol
lowed, in which the conductor is Baid to

ported and discharged. The union de
manded his reinstatement. On that issue
the strike rests. The company agreed last
aight to reinstate the discharged man, but
Insisted on having it distinctly understood
that it does not recognize the union. The
strikers have not yet accepted the offer.

The Voters at a Precinct in South Car
olina. Columbia, S. C, Nov. 11. Details of tie
election at Holland Store precinct, Ander

killed and several wounded, all whites. It
appears that R. G. Carter, the Republican
supervisor, and J. W. Earle, a De.mocnt
became involved in a political quarrel jnst
outside of the house in which the votitig
was going on. Carter pulled his pistol and
fired at Kiirle, but missed him and hit Col
ambus Green, the Democratic mauagi r,
who came to the door to see what tlie
trouble was. Green was killed instantly,
the ball passing through his heart.
Got a Shot Gan Into Action.
Earle then began firing, and both mn
emptied their weapons, after which th y
went behind the store, to relrtad. Eiirle th
ran througa the house and picked up a
shot gun and poured the contents into Car
ter. During the fusillade three bystanders
were wounded, but not seriously. Carter
was terribly wounded, and died a few hours
afterward. Carter came to Andemm
county from Georgia several years ago. He
was a desperate character, and bad killed a
man once before. A dispatch just recciv d

HUB LATJUCH A PEEFEOT SUCCESS.
Miss Mosby, Daughter of Cincinnati's
Mayor, Acta as Godmother A Pouring
Raiu Helps Welcome the Gallant Ship
to the Bosom of Old Neptune The Cab
inet Represented at the Event De
scription of the Vessel and Her Arma
ment. Bkookltn, Nov. 11. At 2:17 p. in. yester
day, in a steady downpour of rain, the Cin
cinnati was launched at the Brooklyn navy
yard. Three thousand people stood under
umbrellas and awnings for two hours wait
ing for Uncle Sam's new cruiser to slide off
the ways. Secretary Tracy and Assistant
Secretary Soley, of the navy, were preseent,
Miss Stella Mosby, danghter of the mayor
of Cincinnati, broke a bottle of Ohio wine
over the bows, and christened the new
vessel the Cincinnati. Mayor Mosby and a
delegation from the chamber of commerce
of Cincinnati were present. The Philadel
phia, Miantotionmli, Atlanta and Dolphin
welcomed their new consort with a salute
as she gracefully took the water. The
launching was a success.
Hesitated to Take the rinnge
It was 2 o'clock when the props and
blocks had been knocked out from under
the hull and the cruiser rested in its cradle,
which was held on the ways by the sole
pieces. Then the saws cut through the
sole pieces and the vessel was clear. But
it did not move. At a word from Naval
Constructor Fernald the hydraulic rams
were manned. Suddenly the great steel
hull be(.-:in to move. Miss Stella Mosby,
daughter of the mayor Cincinnati, raised a
ribbon -covered bottle in her hand and shat
tered it on the bow of the vessel. She said:
1 christen thee Cincinnati."
Into the Water She Goes.
The great ship, with Ohio wine dripping
from its prow, moved from the spot where
she had been built and with a gradually
increasing pace took the water with a
graceful dip and rode majestically out
toward midstream. The vessel kept an
even keel, and its graceful lines and trim
shape drew favorable comments from the
experts who were present and cheers from
the crowd. Half a dozen tugs surrounded
it and towed it to the navy yard dock,
where tiie work will be completed.
