boon commlttad l by tho strikers or tholr
friends Tho switchmen employed by tho
it Erie road at tho Ohio street freight depot Imvo
I been compelled to quit work because of stone
throwing nnd threats One engine bearing n I
party of soldlors his been thrown off tho track
f and there has been an attempt to wreck a I

reason why It was not safo for the troops to bo
I withdrawn today Ono man who participated

probably die Threa ot his companions aro

The calling off ot tho strlko by Mr Sweeney
V I was not popular among the striking switch
men An intensely biter feeling f against the
r Grand Mauler has developed among tho late
strikers who consider that they Imvo boen
t duped and betrayed by him Ono of thor
vald tliat Hwoonoy had given no chance to tho
r men to got their places back again I bo had
t Intimated yesterday Hint ho intended to de
f j clare tho strlko off or held It until
1 today the mon say thoy would have
t had a chanco to soo tholr former
I employers and make terms with them
Sweeney had better got out of town nnd get
f out quick was tho remark of f ono of tho
I bitterly disappointed mon Hut It Is I the cal
ing the trlko off and not the calling It off at
k midnight that is the grievance Tho lost of
tem knew that tho railroad companies had
f ucceedcd in filling the places they throw up
t when they went on strike and they Knew that
f they could not go back to work so they wero
t anxious to retain at least a pretence of nn 03
ouss for violence The declaring off of tho
strike loaves them with nothing at all
to do but to bohavo themselves and to goto
work at whatever they can flndtodo While
1 they wero on a strike tho grocers nnd tho
butchers wero liberal to them and would give
them credit Now they will shut down on
them unless thoy hUllo around and find
omethlng to do In short order This condi
tion of affairs makes them angry I is be
lieved however that this angfy feeling will
rapidly wear away The very necessity of the
actuation will drive It away quickly To
days violence It is thought may wind
up the trouble and unless somo ex
traordinary things occur tonight It is I
thought almost certain that all of
the troops except the two HufTtlo regiments
will be on their way homo by totnoriovv night
The liuffalo regiments will probably be on
duty for twoor three days yet Late this after
noon the Mayor and the Sheriff joined a re
quest that the troops should be recalled just
a they originally joined In tho request that
toy should bo called out
Mr Sweeney himself today got a taste ot
the medicine some of his mOl halo been ad
ministering to tho nonunion switchmen who
came t liuffalo to take their places The dose
was of the nature thnt most labor leader cal
moral suasion though no club was used in
tills case For this reason Mr Sweeney
Is only temporarily bunged up and is
not permanently injured Tho striker
would have given Mr Florence Dono
van of tho State Hoard of Mediation and
Arbitration a dose of the same medicine had
he had a chance It all happened this way
Mr Sweeney had just finished giving his tes
timony before the Board He was leaving the
hall when ho was approached by Striker
Quinn Mr Quinn weighs 1 pounds and
Mr Sweeney about Ifil pounds Mr Quinn la
the Secretary of the lodgo of switchmen which
takes in the men emplovod by tho Meke Plato
road Ho was ono of tho < non who was not
consulted by tho Grand Master Switchman
before the strike was declared off Mr
Sweeney was on tho stops of the New Era Hal
when Quinn approached
Good morning Sweeney he said In the
most disrespectful manner possible
Good morning Quinn replied Mr Swee
ney cheerily
Yes good mornlncr Sweeney repeated
Qulnn Why in hell did you say this light
was over
The delegates of the various lodges of
witchmen decided that it was no uso to keep
up the fight longer replied Mr Sweeney se
Oh they did did they Well damn you
that Isnt a good enough reason What in hell
do you think wo struck for any way you
whltollverod monkey to got licked 1 Now
you look at hero if you dont call u meeting ot
the switchmens unions nnd have this light
declared on ngaln your name will be mud not
Sweeney you hoar mo talking
You nro gottlns excited nro you not
asked Mr Sweeney still retaining control of
Ills temper Tho strlko Is declared off
legally declared off and I havo no power to
declare It on again I do not think It bust to
declare I on ngnfu cither
Oh you dont dont you Well I dl
see Biff bang I bang Qulnns flutu shot out
Thoy landed Mr Sweenoyfl eves Thoy hit
Ills nose Thoy banged his mouth They
broke his teeth Iliff bang t bans Thoy shot
out again Thny broko tho skin wherever thoy
landed JHff baud bane Again thoy shot
out and Mr Swconey was lying In the gut
ter Ills oyns hud already begun t i > well
You sold us out to tho railroad companies 1
shouted Quinn Biff I Youre D traitor
Bang I Youre no earthly use Bang
Youre a whltollvorod monkey nnd Ill
punch lovcn different kinds of daylight
through you I
Qulnn was down on him by this time and he
teemed to bo carrying out his threat In a
moment ho got tired of punching and he
Jumpod up and began to kick the Grand Mas
tar He kicked him and ho kicked him and
then he fell on him again and punched and
mauled him This was all In broad daylight
and on a street In the busiest part of Buffalo
Nobody Interfered Thoro wero women in tho
crowd that looked on Ihey said
Poor lao poor man 1 What did he do to
be treat oil so shimofully
When Quinn hat finished which was not
until some ono had said that thu police wero I
coming ho got up brushed tho mud from his
clothing and darted to walk away I was
then that some of tho men In the crowd
thought It would be a good thing to detain
him until It was ascertained vihuthor tho in
juries he had Inflicted on tho person of tho
Grand Master wero fatl They btnrted alter
hlD He saw them coming and started on a
run down Man street Thn pursuers wore
training on him and ho turned und squaring
off he shook nil flats at thor and shouted
1 Keep back hero t I I any ores follow mo
Il kill ye I nnd thon he flatted off again
and tho pursuers turned around and went
back to vvlifio 1 Sweeney lay groaning on the
> The Urand Matter Switchman was just pick
inc himself up when they got hack He was
being a lstcdby several member of tho
wltcntnen M order who were in the hall when
the aaatalt took place and cimo out to sou
what some ot the dull thuds that sounded every
olthedul tha Inry
time that Qulnn landed on tho Ornnd Master
meant The pavement her he lintl been
lying was covered with blood blood streamed
down tho hits ot his face and his clothing
was stained Ilo looked as though ho had
hivl an encounter with a ryclonr He walled
slowly ntid painfully up the street Thu crowd
followed at a funeral distance Tho Irand
Maxtor was dazed He acted Just ns n prlru
llghterncts after he tins been knocked out
His movements were nil mechanical The first
al frlt
drug stole that was encountered was < Ly
manF Ilo was stiorod In thoro and his head
was put under a coldwater faucet and the
Water was turned on while one man held I
bottle of ammonia to his nose Ho recovered
In a few minutes Then his wounds WAO
washed and dressed lie didnt look so bad
alter It was all over ns might have been ex
pected though It It hadnt been tor tho appli
cation leeches to his eyes ho might not have
been recognlred by casual acquaintances Af f
let IIP haahean patched up Mr Sweeney was
Interviewed He said
It was ono ot the most cowardly assaults I
ever hoard of I was standing talking to
threo or four Dvvitchmcn when Qulnn ap
proached mo from behind nnd dealt mo a tor
ilble blow on the head I turned around com
pletely dumfoundud to soo who hud hit me
and to protect nivsolf when ho rmashed me
attain This blow waa right on tho nose and
1 dont know whether my nose Is broken or
not I WAS knocked down by the blow and he
kicked mo belo ho ran away
Whatcauso could behave had to hit you
nsked tho leportcr
Qulnn Is I Nickel I riatosnllchman and has
bon thrown out ol a job by the strike I sup
pose ho blames me for tho loss of his position
and hal taken this wav to got even J was
tho only course ho thought be had 1 suppose
I Is the Hist tlmo In the history lt tho order
that an oltlcer hOI been defaulted Mr Swee
ney continued I wan never lilt by a striker
Will you have him arrested f
No I will not
Mr Sweeney added that ho would start for
Toronto as loonns he was In condition
Commissioner Kloreneo Donovan said In tho
afternoon In speaking of the nssaull ltwa
frightful It was shameful The dignity of
onicewns tho only thing that kept mo from
jumping In and whipping the man Quinn
Tho story of thn shooting of a man by the
soldiers of the Twentysecond lleglment us
told follows by the olllcors of tho regiment is as
At about 10 oclock word was sent from the
outpost ot that part of the regiment which Is
under tho command of Major llartlett that the
strikers wero throning stones at tho Brio
switchmen In thn yards near tho freight depot
IEht lot
nt Ohio and Qanson street Lieut Cassldy
and a detail of twentyfour men wero sent to
the scene on tho double aulek They fount
thnttho strikers were keeping up a regular fusl l
lade at tho nn at work In tho yard The Lieu
tenant brought his detail to within speaking
dlstunr oUho mono and thon called to them to
disperse They did not dolt Ho called again
anu told thor tlmt unless they dispersed
peacefully ho would chnrcn on them with llxed
bayonets Tho reply this time was n > olley of
stones Several of the soldiers were al hit The
Lieutenant ordered his men to charge They
started forward They wero mot by volley
after MilUy of stones nnd hits of Iron Ihen
one of the soldiers tired nshot and one of the
strikers fell Ihe others ran off as fast ax
their legs could carry thor The entire detail
ehaded them Thomas Carr of Company
1 nnd Corporal Moeks of Company 1
wero sprvor than tho others anil
they I overtook nnd captured three of
mo pnnr 1110 men men went oaiK 10 sew
hUll badly the man who bad been shot was
wouvled They found that he
thlt IVA uncon
scious Tlie big bullet had entered Ills groin
just above tho hip An ambulance was sent
for and he was taken to the hospital Thn
doctors there bald it was very doubtful If ha
eotild live He has since died Ills name is
Michael llrodorlck It N I said that ho was om
plored on the Lehlgh Valley roaM before thn
strike The three men ciiptureil by the cor
poral and tho private were John Kelly of
ItKi TennnsHce street who was employed on
the Lohlgh Valley ronil bnfore tho strike
Michael Clifford of 130 Klk street employed In
tho Erin grain elevators but not n striker and
John Murphy o hunduslvy Htreel who before
road the strike ws emplojed on tho Lohlgh Valley
roadh local papers show tho same disposition
to jump of this case of nhootine as they havn
on R bout erythlll thnt is dono by the soldiers
In the Interest ot law nnd order
Sinco tho troops hlt been here Sheriff
Beck lias received n great many communica
tionI recanting their stay and the advisability
of their being sent homo but none of thor his
been quite so serious ns tho following which
ho received this morning The skull and cross
bones heads the pngu
Tit Aiitr i t fri fnriftr th HVirUwcntnn
Withdraw tlie troops or you rarrsb This means
Ilelb Amen
Beneath this is arudcfydrawncoflflnwiththo
inscription AI1H I wasnt long utter
thn receipt of this document that the Sheriff
cnlled on tho Mayor nnd conferred with him
They were together for somA time and when
the conference was over it was announced
that they had united in writing I letter to Uon
Porter asking for tho withdrawal of the
troops Of course tho threat in the communi
cation had no Influence one way or the other
in Inducing thn Sheriff to act
Ono of the amusing features of the story to
day Is the act of the Lackawanna and Nickel
Ilate men They went back to work this after
noon in response to the Invitation of tho com
panies As soon as they were back tho super
intendents of tho roadb shipped the nonunion
men they had employed away When the
former strikers were very sure that the non
union men had gone they talked Itoveramong
themselves and tonight they struck again
They had meetings tonight chose Mike Bar
rett of Chicago ns their loader and decided to
stav out till Sheolfrozn over Amusing as this
is tlmreis I reason for it After the confer
ence yesterday afternoon when Mr Sweeney
called In the representatives of the switch
mens local unions to consult 190 tho advisa
bility of ordering the strike off he Ignored the
lodges of which the men who struck trom
svmpithy wero members und only call
ed tho men of tho Irle Central West
Shore Lohigh and Buffalo Creek roads
which were tho original strikers The
roads whose men were ignored were the Lack
roars the Lake Shore the Western New
York and Pennsylvania the Nickel Plate and
the Buffalo Itochestor nnd Pittsburgh None
of the men on thoflve roads last named had I
been out nearly as long as the original strikers i
and they were not as thoroughly whipped
Like good prize lighters those fellows an > pigs 1
for punishment and thovwaiU more 1 hoy
will probably not be satisfied until they IIUVH
boon out at least as long as thn originators ot
tlio strlko were out But aside from their
desire to show their gamcncss they think
It a shame that they halnl lameness adred themselves
to thn ranks of the strikers from sympathy
only should be entirely ignored when it came
to the little matter of calling enough They
think that Mr hweoney und his original fol
lower are to say thilimstungrateful Qulnn
tlm man who punched Sweeney was oneof tho
kleknrs Homo of tho others say tonight that I
thn irand Master Switchman wont get out of

Chief Morgonstern of tho Buffalo police to
night appointed two of tho detectives of the
forco to accompany Sweeney about as long ns
hn should stay In the cltv hweoney said he
did not want them and would not accept their
services He Is out tonight lie pays it took
sovoti stitches to close up ono ot tho wounds
In his fuco Hn thinks that Bnrrott wore a
heavy ring nnd it was with that lie was struck

BUJTAIO AUI2Xol tlmt the strike is I
dellnltoly ended the subject of vital Im
portance In the minds of thu switchmen is I
how they aro going to cot hark Into tho places
which they gavnup and they aro doing somo
Imnl thinking on thU point Thoso of them
who Imvo boon particularly active In advocat
ing 1 policy ot interference with tho lallrond
property and general lawlessness are trying
by nil moan in their power to keop their fellow 1
workmen from applying for their old places
Tho croat majority of tho men however will
undoubtedly make an attempt to got back but
probably their efforts will meet with null
success on moit of tho roads This will bo
particularly true of tho switchman of tho
Central as the officials of that road declare
that not one of the strikers will bo takon back
Our policy now will bo the samo as In tho
strikes of 1800 snit General Superintendent
Yoorhaes today We discharged all tha
men then and we shall dlsclmigo them nil
now Not D slnglo mal will ibo takon back
When the men come around to apply for their
old places I they do come thoy will bo paid
what Is I owing to them If anj thing nnd not
fied tlmt tho road has no further need of tholr
sen Ices
The ofllelals of tho West Shore hero say that
noneot their men will bo taken back Tholr
places are tilled and they will be discharged
The policy of the Lake Shore wlU bo practically
that of tho Central
Non of the Den will be taken back at pres
ent said Assistant Superintendent Blodgott
in answer to tho reporters question for the
reason that all tho places are filled and we
have no ua4 for more men
Tho chances aro tilt few of tho Lehlgh
switchmen will get back as the company will

A committed of three of the Lehlgh ex

thn Kastern division said In regard to the
taking back of the men
Wo hay no room for them We have al
ready lefttsod to let the men who went back
on us return to work Several applications

This Is no surprise as tho relations bMween
the Lnckawntinn and Its employees have been
less strained than In the caso of the other
roads und whoti the switchmen llnally went
out It was with reluctance I
Tho Buffalo trek road will take bnck as
many of Its men ns have not been loaders In

property or lawlessness of tho past twelve
Ilas4 Such of tho men us aro efficient work
men nnd those who have been forced out by
the preisure brought to bear on them can get
their old positions back provided they aro not
known to havo had any part in tho destruction
of propel ty or Interference with nonunion
Tho Buffalo Rochester and Pittsburgh road
will probably take back a few men Wn can
not say yet what wo will do said nn official
I may be that none of the better men who
wero forced out against their wishes will bo

BUTTAIO Aug 25 The news that the strike
had been declared off reached tho camps
among the railroad tracks almost as soon ns
It was known at headquarters and was re
ceived with joy for to the cost ot keeping the
men bore which will have to be paid by the
county und State there Is to bo added a great
deal more than that In the losses which are
dally growing greater to members of tho a
tonal Guard Added to this was tho
uncertainty which was dally becoming
n greater source of uneasiness about
tha men getting back tho places that
they left to answer the States call
Already there are repotts that more than a
hundred men Imvo cither been discharged or
hit their places tilled because of this Gen
Porter and Gen Doyle heard thA news nt
about midnight Mr H Walter Webb of the

AIJIAXT Aug 25 Gov Dower ai soon ash
was officially Informed that the Buffalo strike
had been ordered off directed Oen Torter to
use his own judgment a to what and how
many troops should bo withdrawn as well as
when they should bo ordered home The Gov
ernor said
I nm pleased that the trouble has ended
without more casualties and If my action in
ordering the troops to Buffalo has saved a
single Ufa tho result has been worth all the
cost either to tho State or Krle county The
promptness with which the National Guards
men obeyed tho call to arms and the celerity
with which thoy were massed at Buffalo will I
think convince the people that It has not been
a waste of money and caro to establish and
maintain the mllltla In Its present excellent
condition I suppose somo of the troops wilt
be ordered home today but Imvc loft all that
to Gen Porter 1 shall leave for Watertown
tvnight will pmbahly have my car attached
to the train leaving here at 2 A M so that I
Bhall got home In the morning
The Governor said he wouldat once resume
Ms Inspection of the Adirondack forests nnd
bis visits to various asylums and State insti
tutions which had been Interruptnd by the
strike He expect to go to Malone this
week thonce to Paul Smiths and the Saranau
Lake region Thus far ho has declined nil in
vitations to speak at county fairs and says h
will make only one address tills all and that
on Sept 10 at tho State fair at byrucuse
Before leaving tonight tho Governor said
thnt Oen Porter would remain in Buffalo to
superintend thn withdrawal of troop and
that the Tenth Battalion of Albany ami Troop
A had been already ordered home and would
arrive some time tonight
