Itut President Shouts and (ieneral

many days Mr. lledley, who broke the
subway and elevated strike In 1904 In
two days, has been going about with a
twinkle In his eye und working like a

tieard of the strike vote taken at the
Lyceum. "Hut our men will continue

' Tile decision to strike was greeted
with wild yellw. The strikers held an
.executive session and nt 10:55 P. M.
""they started from the hall with whoops
and yells. In front of the nan was
gathered n platoon of police reserves,
but the Htrlkers swept ast them nnd
began to jell to the motornien on the
Klghty-slxth stieet crosstown lines that
u strike had been ordered.
The mob of 2,000 surrounded a car
and quickly persuaded the conductor
nnd motormnn to quit work as soon as
they could take the car to the barn.
While squads of scouts started to vari
ous parts, of the city to spread the word,
the mob hurried to Lexington avenue,
whero standing on the tracks they com
pelled the motonncii to stop their cars.
They tied up the trallio there, getting
promises from the men to quit.
'They moved next to Madison avenue,
where they Flopped more cars and got
the motormen who were northbound to
agree to put their cars In at the nearest
barn. Some of the carmen on duty re
ceived the announcement of the strike
with. cheers. Others were dumfnunded

All day long both sides had been pre

Hallways Company, headed by William
Uoherty, had submitted their demands
to Mr. lledley demanding recognition of
the union, higher wages, better working
conditions and an nnswer by II o'clock

The committee, headed by William

report of the answer to the demands

.lames P. Holland, president of the
New York State Federation of Labor,

stieet railway men act as one man In
general strike they can win out them
selves In one or two weeks
That there are many carmen on the
New York Rallwuys Company lines who
do not wish to go on strike and who are
thoroughly satisfied with the treatment
which Frank lledlej', general manager
of the company, has given them was
shown yesterday by the visit of a dele
gation of conductors aim motormen to
the ottlces of President Theodore P.
Shonts and Mr. lledley.
About 125 conductors and motormen.
wearing their uniforms, got away from
their posts of dutj' about noon and swept
down to the oftlccs of the New York
Rat, nays Company on the twelfth floor
of lii. Hioadwaj.
"Well, hoys," asked Mr. Shonts.
"what can I do for you? You know that
we always have been readj' litre to meet
you men on a common footing and give
you a square deal."
"Red" Livingston stepped forward,
sputtered and twirled his but.
Livingston finally got his wind. He
first produced paper which had been
signed by conductors and employees
pledging their loyalty to the com
panj'. These papers showed that on
the division on which the men worked
the committee of workmen had made In
quiries of 2,568 men out of a total of
more than 3,100. Of the total questioned,
the papers showed, 2,423 had signed
pledges of loyalty. Only 116 men had
refused to sign the pledge.
Police Protection Asked.
"On bOhalf of these 2,423 men," said
Livingston, "I wish to ussure you both.
President Shonts and Ueneral Manager
lledley, of our loyalty and to nek you In
the event of a srike to give us adequate
police protection.
"We want to assure you that we have,
given no outsider authority to present de

tween the employees of this company and'

"We ftls-j desire that Fresldent Shonts
select a committee to go to the Mayor'
ofllce and secure from him the .promise
that the oj-al men In the employ of the
company shall receive all the protection
that Is iiecesaarj'."
"Iloys, I'm Proud ot You.'
President, Shnnt showed that ho felt
keenly the expression of loyaltj- on the
part of the men. "Iloys, I am proud of
you," he tvtUt. "This Is a marvellous
demonstration of loyaltj-, one that I
never shall forget. In view of what Is
happening I appreciate the renl courage
that It hus required on your part to come
down here and speak to me In this man
ner. "In handling the transportation prob
lem In this city we have asked J'ou to
stand by us and help us, and now that we
are assured that you will help us a man
would have to ha without a heart If he
failed to appreciate or whs not affected
by this demonstration of affection, sym
puthy and loyalty to the management of
a railroad company upon whoso shoul
der rests great rcsponslbllltj',"
One ot tho men asked Mr, Shonts If
an arrangement could not be made by
which the company would have a com
mittee that would meet a committee of
tho carmen from time to time to adjust
any grievances thut the men might have.
President Shonts replied that he was
working on such a plan with Mr. Hedley
and that tho plan would bo submitted to
the men within a short time,
"Ited" Livingston then said he wished
to tell tho Mayor how his delegation and
tho other employees felt and that they
wanted to ak tho Mayor for protection
In tha event of a strike. President
Shonts nt once called up Mayor Mltchel
and asked for an appointment on tho
part of the employees! with the Mayor.
Mr, Mltchel set l o'clock and stralghtwuy
the men hurried to the City llnll.
Men Fear Attacks on Cars.
Livingston then related to the Mayor
some of the things ho had told Mr.
Shouts, Then he said : "We know, .Mr.
Mayor, that If there is a strike there's
going to be trouDlo for us. I know very
well that there's a bottle up town with
my mimo marked on It und tluit 1 nm

"All we want," ho continued, "l to
help the public nnd to be assured of
protection. We don't believe in vlolenco
or crime, or you would not seo these
bands on the sleeves of the men here
Mayor Mltchel was Impressed by the
Hieocli of the men. He explained tho de
mands that hud been presented to him
by the union men on lio previous flay.
He admitted 1m could nut undei stunil
how so inaiij' of the men should pli-:!o

gerald had told hi in nn the previous day
was truo about more than half of the
company's eniploj'ees having been en

"The entire available forces of the
clty will give protection to th men oper
ating the street cars and their passen
gers," reassured the Mayor. "Kvery
forco within the mower of tho city offi
cials: will be exerted. The city govern
ment will discharge Its obligations to the
people. You may rest assured of that."
Tho delegation of carmen thanked the
Mayor and left City Hall.
Mayor .Mltchel received a letter from
President Khonts In the course of the
day chaiglng that Tom Mooncy, who was
Indicted In Han Francisco for the mur
der of cignt persons who were killed by a
bomb during the recent preparedness pa
rade, was an accredited agent of Presi
dent Mahon of the Amalgamated Asso
ciation of Street Railway Kmployees.
President Shonts Inclosed u telegram
from District Attorney Chniles M. Flck-
ert of Han Francisco. Part of that tele
gram read: '
"I have documentary evidence show
ing that Tom Mooncy, Indicted here for
the murder of eight persons killed by
tho explosion of a bomb during the re
cent preparedness parade, Is an accred
ited agent of W. D. Mnhon, president or
the Amalgamated Association of Street
Hallway Employee), and was In constant
correspondence with him In reference to
Han Francisco conditions.
"I have evidence that Mooney djna
mlted an electric tower of the power
line supplying the street car system of
San Francisco with current for the pur
pose of crippling the system prior to the
strike, nnd that soon after the strike
failed In San Francisco the bomb tin ow
ing occurred. Mooncy's expense account
was sent to Mnhon."
President Mahon nenled he had ever
employed Moonej or had any connection
with him.
Ho said he neer heard of Mooney
until last November. When attending
the convention of the American Federa
tion of Uibor In San Francisco Mooney
called on him, he said, and requested
permission to organize the employees of
the one non-union trolley company of
San Francisco. Mahon snjs he icplled
that the matter was one for the general
executive board of his organization to
consider. He offered, be said, to sub
mit Mooney's application to the general
executive board.
A week or so later Moonej 's applica
tion, Mahon says, reached him through
the malls. Mahon says he consulted
with the members of the board and It
was decided nothing could lw done
Moonej- was so notified. Nothing more
was heard of him until May or June,
'Mahon says, when letters arrived from
Moonej and certain members of the
organization urging Mooney's appoint
ment as an organizer to work In San
After an Investigation It was de
cided to employ him, and $200 was sent
to him for expenses. Some time later a
telegram was received from the Central
Iahor Council of San Fr;(nclseo saying
that n street car strike was In prospect
and desiring to know whether the na
tional organization would pledge $40,000
toward winning It. Answer was made
that If certain conditions were fulfilled
$60,000 would be sent, and there, ac
cording to Mahon, the matter rests.
Mahon denied that his organization
eier hired Mooney to ciTmlt any act
of violence, und promised It would never
do so.
Hrnnt Car "ertlre Improves.
The service on the Cnlon Hallway
system In The Hronx was better yester
dny thun on the previous day, the rail
way operating five more cars than It
dlil last TRursdaj-. The company sent
out on the road 110 out of a total of
252 cars. In Manhattan, however, the
Third Avenue Hallway operation was
poorer than on the previous daj Only
fifty-nine cars out of a total of 505
were In operation. Only a few cars were
on the Grand street and the 129th street
crosstown lines. There were a few on
the Forty-eecond street crosstown, but
none on the Hroadway line. Cars were
running on Third avenue.
There were fewer police on patrol In
The Hronx and for that reason the cars
were slower In getting Into operation.
The Manhattun police had trouble with
a gang of strike st Wooster and

Merchants Association Arts.
The executive committee of the Mer

day directed that a letter be sent to
the Public Service Commission, Major
Mitcnei, tne vnrlous railway companies
now threatened with strikes and also the
nignnlzers of the strikers, calling to
their attention tfce Importance of settling
the present dlfflcultj-.
"It Is clear," says the letter, "Hint the
party whose rights would be affected by
such a strike Is the general public.
The cessation of transportation In the
city of New York would paralyzo tho
commerce and Industry of the com
munity, destroy tho opportunity for In
dividual citizens to maintain the neccs-saij-

would directly affect every man, woman

President Prepares fur Mediation
In Threatened MtrlUe,
Wasiiinoton, Aug, 4. To forearm
himself with all the Information (hat
may bo obtained In case opportunity
arises for Intervention In thu threatened
railroad strike, President Wilson to-day
held an extended conference with Will
lam L. Chamheis, commissioner nf the
Hoard of Mediation a.,u v onclllatloii.
It was Intimated In nlllrlul quarter,
however, that Iho President does not
couti mplato action of any kind before
tho announcement of the vote of the rail
load employees on Tuesdaj', and possibly
not until a deadlock Is leached between
the contending parties. From the Wash
Ington point of view the time Is not pro
pitious for bringing outside Influences to
bear althtr upon the railroad managers
or the heads ot th brotherhoods, and It
Is probable the existing machinery for
mediation will be tried out before any
other method of settlement Is suggested.
The Senate Commltteo on Interstate
Commerce to-day tabled the resolution
offered by Senator NewlandM to direct
the Interstate Commerce Commission to
make an Investigation of wages und
hours of service of cuch class of railroad
The committee had before It n tetter
from the brotherhoods as follows :
"The railway manngerH und the repr
sentatlvea of the railroad organizations
will confer In New York early In August,
und we bcllevo the Committee on Inter
state Commerce should remain neutral,
at least until Jointly called upon by the
national conference committee of rail
way managers nnd the icpreientatlves of
the railroad brotherhoods, and we re
spectfully suggest this course of action."
Federal olliclals appeared to-day to
take rather an optimistic view of the
strike situation, obviously believing that
mediation would bo successful or thu'
some way would be found to bring about
nn adjustment without resorting to a

original proposal which the United Htntes

.Stripped of Its diplomatic verbiage th
Carranza note is regarded here as reas
serting his demand that the withdrawal

any Intlmat'on of the course this Oov
eminent will pursue. It Is believed this
Government will yield to Curranzu'H de

that tho first meeting of the commission
