Police Reserves Called to Protect
Men — Attempt Made to Blotc
Up Machine in Street.
The strike of the chauffeurs of the New York
■ Taxicab Company assumed serious proportions
| last night, when the strikers and their sym
: pathizera stoned cabs, assaulted strike breakers
j and in one case set tire to a cab. which was
j nearly destroyed before the arrival of the fire
apparatus. The police reserves of the West 47th
street station had their hands full » v»>nt!ng
trouble all along: "Automobile Row," and a num-
I ber of men were arrested during the night for
'■■ their part in the outbreak.
For several hours yesterday the service of
\ the company was stopped, but later a number
i of cabs were sent out under new men. This
I seemed to anger the strikers, and their scon
j tent broke out with violence in th«» evening.
| Early in the afternoon a man was hit with a
j brick at sSth street and Fifth avenue, and from
| that time on until early this morning there was
| more or less disorder. When the first reserves
■ appeared on the scene they were greeted with
I hoots and catcalls, but the strikers wisely re
frained from throwing any bricks at them.
Strikers were lined up along Broadway be
■ ■ • een 47th and ."Oth streets shortly aftor dark.
: and taxicabs were made- the object of ing
bricks and other missiles as they passed them.
Charles Schirmer, of No. 302 West 129 th
, street, who. until the strike was railed yester
' day. had been employed in the Taxicab Com
: pany's garage, at 62d street and Broadway, was
j sent out with a car last night to drive a fare.
| to th«» New York Theatre, between 43d ;md 44th
j streets, In Broadway. He pas» the line of
i striken just below 50th street, and was almost
I through a jjantlet of flying bricks when he was
. bowled over by a brick on the left sid«3 of the
; head.
: He was carried unconscious to a drug store
: near by and resuscitated. A mob formed around
] the drug store, and there were many cries of
'. "Scab." The police went to the protection of
I the injured man. and he was fpiritel away
1 through the crowd.
Patrolman Kutka, of the traffic squad, -who
j says he saw two men running shortly after
j - hirmer was struck, srave chase, and arrested
i them on charges of assault. They said they
I were Edward Hines, of No. 42 West OSth street,
! and Bernard J. Keeler, of No. 1412 Madison avc
' nue.
The taxicab Schirmer was driving was taken
j to the station house and left in front of the
j building. Some one slipped up and extracted
j the cork from th*> gasolene tank. The fluid
• leaked into the gutter and was soon flowing-
I along the edge of the curb. Some on^ threw a
i match into if. and a second later there: was a.
1 flame extending along: the gutter for half a
| block. This flame reached the standir.gr auto
mobile and it was ignited. An alarm was.
turned in and the tire warn extinguished, after
a damage of about 57.1 had been done.
Many taxicab windows were broken by flying
! bricks as they passed along the gantlet of
j strikers, and several more chauffeur:-, it Is
reported, were injured.
One of the drivers was arrested by Bicycle
Patrolman Murray at 47th street and Fifth
! avenue, charged with running his cab at the
S rate of twenty miles an hour, and was taken
jto the East f>lst street station. Hardly had
j he reached there and given the name of Charles
i Blass berry, of No. l'<» 4 West 88th street, when
; two other automobiles arrived aid the lieu
! tenant in charge allowed the occupant to see
j the prisoner. When Blassterry said he had
i nothing to give as security one of the men
! pulled out his gold watch, handed it to : lass
■ berry, who in turn handed It to the lieutenant,
i It was accepted.
The strike, coming a_°i i" did before the taxi
i cab officials were wholly prepared caught them
i unawares, and they had much trouble getting
i out their cars. The strikers belong to Chauf
! feurs Protective X,"nion No 267, which is or-
I ganized as ■ local of the United Teamsters of
i America, and are supported In this strikt by the
I horse cab drivers, who are organized a* Local
i 70S of the rjnited Teamsters of America. Ac
\ cording to the committee sent to state its
■ grievances to Henry 5. Allen, president of the
j company, it was stubbed. Mr. Alien la In
| dignant at the strikers and says that their de
j mands are foolish and that he has all the men
| he needs.

Le Mans. Oct. Wilbur Wright, who holds
the world's record for an aeroplane flight, estab
lished another world's record this afternoon for
time and distance with passenger. With a
French journalist by his side he remained in the
air for 35 minutes and 37 seconds, circling the
Held twenty-four times and covering a distance
officially estimated at fifty-eight kilometres, or
about thirty-six miles. His best previous flight
with passenger was, ll minutes .'{."> 2-'< seconds.
By his feat to-day Mr. Wright partly fulfill
the conditions of a contract signed by him and
Lazare Welller. who represents a syndicate,
whereby Mr. Wright will receive $100,000 and
the syndicate will take in return the patent
rights of the Wright machine for France and
the colonies, with the privilege of manufacturing
aeroplanes on this model.
The sun as setting when Wright and his
passenger started, and the flight was completed
in the moonlight. When they alighted the
French journalist in his enthusiasm threw his
arms around Wright's neck, and the great crowd
Of spectators were hardly less demonstrative in
their manifestations of delight.
Mr. Wright earlier in the day made naif a
dozen shorter flights, carrying an American
journalist on one trip. Hot] of the newspaper
men aft^r the flight t^aid that the dominant sen
sation was one of security and stability. The
Frenchman said that the launching of the ma
chine produced a sink i sensation, but once in
the air it was like riding in a fast automobile,
only the course seemed smoother and the motion
more delightful, It was not unlike the floating:
sensation experienced in a loon, the easy, cer
tain movement, especially at the turns, indi
cating that the air as a medium of travel had
been mastered.
Tn his flights to-day Mr. Wright used a new
propel!':-, with slightly broadar hlad^s «»t at a
greater angle than that previously '; j "i. Th j
result was a marked increa-'-e in speed.
Among the spectators were M. Weiiler, Frank

is one flight above the state committee. After
he had gone Mr. Mack saJd with some feeling
that Mr. Belmont had called to pay his re
spects and had not paid anything else.
