NO 301 AM UBEICA TOM JOHNSON'S SYSTEM DERANGED The Street Car Service of Cleveland is Seriously Both Sides Are 'Willing' "Wants the Other to J? reposition. Cleveland, May lfi. In the midst of a liay of incipient rioting, some blood shed, general disorder, inconvenience in carrying the public and the partial stopping of the street railway service incident to the strike of the conduc tors and motorinen of the Municipal Traction company, came a proposition tonight to stop further violence and submit the whole mutter to arbitra tion. This was the situation late to night created by Joseph Bishop, a member of the state board of arbitra tion. President Dupont of the Municipal Traction company, said the company was w illing to arbitrate, but the prop osition should come from the union. With the union unwilling to take thj' initiative in the matter of a peace ful settlement the Immediate termina tion of the disturbance is still an open lii. sti' n. All night long Bishop labored with the leaders of the union in an effort of arbitration. In the meantime the incipient trouble continued. Late today the company decided to maintain its service tonight, in spite of advice to the contrary by Bishop to the officials of the company. All day there has been more or less riot ing. At first the men who remained at work were appealed to fcy the strik ers to leave the cars. When they re fused, efforts were made by the union men and tieir sympathizers to force them to leave the cars. This resulted in the motorinen ami conductors being forcibly taken from the cars. The cars were stopped by placing obstruc tions upon the tracks. Trolley wires Were cut, the tracks ripped out and the switch points broken. One of the earliest disturbances oc curred at the Lakeview car barns when one car attempted to leave. A mb fcurrounded the-car, and the po lice attempted to rescue the men. Stones and clubs were hurled and the officers used their clubs'. Chief of Po lice Kohler was struck by a "Stone, but not seriously injured. At noon Mayor Johnson issued the following proclamation: "Violence re sulting in the destruction of "property and injury to persons, having already occurred on the streets, consequent upon the street railway strike, I have instructed the chief of police to pre serve order and protect property with "COSART" ON A TANK IS A GUARANTEE "We are always busy because we do It right.

Motorman John Dubler was beaten into unconsciousness late tonight and ! left dying on the street. He is I thought to have been fatally injured. I Many others were roughly handled, but their wounds are not considered serious. Mayor Johnson, who is also treasurer of the traction company, said the strike was all foolishness and a great waste, and he hoped to bring it to a close speedily. While the general car service was seriously crippled during the early hours jif the strike, the company made rapid headway in restoring the sched ules. Tonight fully twenty-five per cent. a normal service is maintained. Late today the company posted the following notice on the cars. "Notice to public: these cars belong to you. You should protect them." To give the men who worked, all possible protection, heavy wire screens were placed in front of the' cars to shi.id the motormen from stones and clubs. A policeman rode each car. No call has been made for outside assist ance. The police claim to be able to handle the situation. There has been no talk of military protection. Funeral and mail cars were not in terfered with. Suburban cars were al lowed to run in the city, except In casts where the trolley wire had been cut to obstruct the city cars, which necessarily interfered with the big suburban cars.

Shepherd, a prosperous poultry fancier, and former Rough Rider, was found murdered at his farm near here this morning after a mysterious warn ing that his houshold svould meet with a violent death within two weeks. His wife and Jennie Bendy, servant, suf fered the same fate, but Shepherd's seven months' old baby was found sleping in its cradle unharmed. The entire house had been ransacked and everything of value taken. The police have made one arrest in connection with the case, and another man Is un der surveillance. However no direct charges have been preferred. A posse with blocxlhounds Is searching the country for theassasslns. A repeating shot gun was apparently the instru ment of murder. Frank Zastera, a farm hand who had been employed only two days at the place, discovered the bodies shortly after the shooting and gave the alarm. Zastera is said to claim occult powers and according to statements of the victims 'friends, predicted in Shep hed's presence that in two weeks time two men would come to the farm and kill everyone on it. Frank Crooks was captured this aft ernoon near Freehold, and is in Jail at that place. Blood stains were found on his clothing but Crooks, who is also a farm hand, says these came from killing chickehs. The stained garments will be sent to a chemist for examination and the prisoner will be kept in custody pending a result of the examination and the Inquest which will be held next Saturday after noon. The police are looking for a farm hand who was employed on the Shepherd farm until recently. He is said t have quarreled with Shepherd. A man said to resemble Mm was seen about the farm early today. . Is Your Grain Insured? Now is the time to insure your grain in the field...

Washington, May 16. A lively tilt betwee'n Speaker Cannon and several members of the house occureJ today during the consideration of the bill to compensate government employes for injuries received hi tue govern ment service. Mr. Alexander, of New York, offered a bill on the floor and his colleague, Mr. Cockran, asked for order. The speaker declared that the house was in perfect order. At that, Mr. Cockran who was in his place on the democrat ic side, strode across the chamber re marking while he did so: "I must go over to that side in a most disorderly way in order to hear the proceedings." Mr. Gaines, of Tennessee repeated the suggestion that the house was in disorder, whereupon the speaker reit erated the order was excellent. "Let everybody sit down" shouted Mr. Gaines. By that time the speaker was thor oughly provoked. The gentleman from Tennessee and perhaps other members in their anxiety for order have possib ly made disorder," he said. "And the chair adds to it by a lot of unnecessary levity," remarked ' Mr. Gaines. "The gentleman will be seated until he is recognized," commanded the speaker. Mr. Gaines insisted that he had made the point in all sincerity, but the speakers only reply was to In struct the stenographer not to take down Mr. Gaine's remarks. "Ha will not take them from the speaker either," hotly retorted Mr. Gaines. The speaker brought his gav el down and suggested that the mem bers might elevate their voices "or perhaps" he said, "a megaphone might be profitably employed." He insisted that the house was exceptional order for fifteen minutes. The process of cleaning up prepara tory to adjournment was continued in the house today. The sundry civil ap propriation bill was sent to the con ference and the conference report on the military academy bill was agreed to; the general deficiency bill reported, and the following bills were passed, granting compensation to government employes for injuries in the service, and the authorization of a continuence of the inland waterways commission. With a view of paving the way for a revision of the tariff, a resolution was piussed jiermitting the committee on ways and means to sit during the coming recess to conduct the hearings. Mr. Williams, the minority leader, and several of his colleague, characterized the resolution as a mere subterfuge for political ends. Recycles H. S. Griswold & Co.
