Columbia, Oct. 19.?The employees
of the Columbia Street Railway struck
this morning, following a meeting of
all the conductors and motormen in
the early hours, at which the propo
sition of the street railway officials
The reason given by the carmen for
going on a strike was the refusal of
the railway officials to recognize the
For several hours this morning no
cars were run out of the car barn,
where they were taken last night, hut
ahout 10 o'clock, three cars manned by
Inspectors and such men as hadn't
struck, were run out and put Into ser
vice. They were run on three lines,
but only to the city limits.
The first near-disorder occurred Just
before noon, when a striker boarded
one of the cars and gave the man in
charge, William Flitters, a good curs
ing. It is said that violence would
have been offered had not some of the
strike leaders been on hand and quick
ly dissuaded the man from any furth
er demonstration. Over 100 men gath
ered around the car at the time. This
afternoon, at the corner of Taylor and
Gregg streets, one of the cars was
rocked and the trolley rope cut. On
account of this disturbance the com
pany discontinued the running of cars
on that line.
Mayor Takes Precautions.
As a precautionary measure, Mayor
W. H. Qibhes this morning Issued a
proclamation Instructing the police to
close all clubs where liquor Is suppos
ed to he sold Illegally, to permit no
loitering and loafing on the streets and
to arrest such persons when they could
not give a good account of themselves.
The mayor ordered the police to look
out especially for the pistol "toters"
and to handle them without favor. He
said that he Intended to be fair as be
tween the company and the strikers
and would interpose only to prevent
or punish the breaking of the laws of
It was announced this afternoon, fol
lowing a conference between the rail
way olflcials and the mayor, that no
cars would he run at all to-morrow.
This was thought to be the part of
wisdom. Such cars as were run to
day were sent Into the barn early In
the evening and uo cars are being
operated tonight and none will he op
erated before Monday.
The county dispensaries were closed
about the middle of the day, by order
of Chairman Cain, of the dispensary
board, at the request of the leaders of
the strike. The delegation called on
the Governor to ask this and he, as a
matter of courtesy, referred them to
the mayor, who sent them to Chairman
Cain, and the closing of the dispen
saries followed. Whether they will
stay closed during the remainder of the
strike Is not known.
When asked about the strike, Gov
ernor Blease today issued the follow
ing statement: "1 have been requested
to close the dispensaries, and 1 have
referred the parties to the mayor of
the city and the chairman of the
county board of control, who have
power coequal with that of the Gov
ernor to act in the premises; and If
satisfactory arrangements cannot he
made with them, then I will take such
action as 1 deem Is for the best Inter
est of the people of the State.
"It Is reported that the street car
people have wired for Northern strike
breakers to come here. I hope that
this Is not true, for, In my opinion, It
would be a very unwise stop and 1
would regret it very much. We do not
need Yankees to run South Carolina's
When shown the Governor's state
ment Vice President Elliott, of the
street railway, said that they had not
sent out telegrams ordering strike
breakers and that they had hired none.
He said the men manning the cars
which were operated today are all
local men. Mr. Elliott emphatically de
nied the report that the company had
ordered strike-breakers here. Superin
tendent Wallace and Vice President
1011 lot t are handling the company's
side of the matter.
In a statement issued tonight defin
ing the Company's side of the contro
versy. It Is stated that the committee
of the employees, at a conference yes
terday afternoon, agreed to recommend
unanimously to the employees the ac
ceptance of the agreement between th ?
Company and the committee of the
carmen. The agreement, in brief,
promised recognition or the local Un
ion, senlorlt of runs, a two cent raise
In wages and other matters, but did
not mentional recognition of the Amal
gamated Association of the Street and
Hallway Employees of America, No.
500 The ofllcers say that the strike
thlB morning came as a complete sur
prise to them, for they understood
that the committee of the employees
was going to recommend to the em
ployees the agreement drawn up and
accepted by the committee of employ
ees and Vice President Elliott and
Superintendent Wallace, of the Street
Statement of Strikers.
This morning after the meeting of
carmen rejected the company's propo
sals, the following statement was Is
sued by them through A. A. Gerald,
president of the local Association of
Street Car Workers:
"We contended for recognition of
the Amalgamated Association and the
company refused It. The company of
fered to recognize the local organiza
tion of street carmen, but to accept
this without recognition of the Amal
gamated Association would have been
to forfeit our charter in the Amalgii
mated Association. Therefore, we have
struck. The strike is uow on."
The leaders of the strike are doing
all they can to keep down any tlisor- '
der or violence and lawlessness. About !
100 men went out on strike this morn
ing and their ranks Blood solid
throughout the day. The strikt i. hav<
opened headquarters over the Stanley
building. A night watch will be main
tained at the car burn as a matter ol
precaution and Mayor Gibbes has or
dered the police to be on the alert and
disband any gathering that might re
sult In disorder. The power at the
generating plant at the Columbia Ca
nal remained on during the day and
the current was available at any time

The peculiar excellence of the cof-1
fee served In New Orleans homes and
restaurants is commented upon by
every visitor to that city. The Brand
of New Orleans coffee known as
"Lu'zianne" has come to be a univer
sal favorite In South Carolina. "Over
at Chester," writes Mr. T. G. Heily,
tly? well known and genial travelling
representative of the Helly-Taylor Co.,
of New Orleans "1 was standing in the
store of Mr. Richardson. He intro
duced me to one of his customers, to
whom he referred as another "Luzli
anno crank." 1 asked this man to
tell me why he preferred Luzlanne to
all other coffees. His reply was a
splendid tribute to the goods. He stat
ed that he could Illustrate it easier
by a very recent experience. "A few
days ago when we went to make coffee
' for breakfast, found that we did not
have a bit of Luzlanne in the house.
My wife went to a neighbor's, who on

coffee. We put In the same amount as
I we had been using of Luzlanne, and
I declare to you that the hot water
was hardly colored. I had to take
three times AS MUCH, and then did
not get as good coffee as Luzlanne
makes. Now when we returned the
neighbor's coffee we sent her Luzlanne
She in turn used ns much as was cus

too strong. She came to us about
