Chicago, Nov. 13.-Worse rioting to
day than before was tho expectation
with which both sides in the big street

The lines of union piekots wore thrown
out at various points, especially in

Strong Police Guard.
Several hundred police and a dozen
patrol wagons wore massed at the
southern torminus of the cable line
at Seventy-ninth street and Cottage
Grove avenue, early in the morning,
and at 8 o'clock the wagons started
toward the busine.s distriet, leaving
squads of police at intervals along the
line, where throuble was anticipated.
Pickets posted by the strikers were
also on hand in numbers at the va
rious barns and sullenly %atohed the
preparations being made to guard the
cars. Patrol wagons filled with po
lice made ready to proceed besides the

While crowds were on tiptoe of ex

Two cars oil Wentworth avenue left

Precautionary measures by the po0

plote'than during the teamsters' strike
some months age, whlen the city's traf

No stones were thrown, but there
were jeers and eat calls for the po

cries of "Carter Harrison will never

The presence of police on the car.?
evidently with the approval of Mayor
Harrison, app~earedi greatly to excite
the anger- of the crowds.
Ton cars in all start(d on the trip
toward tihe center of the city within
a half hour, all on the Wentworth av

manned the cars, and each car after
the first was in charge of a lieuten
