Anderson, an attorney, filed a surt in equity in court late today, against the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway em ployes, in which the union is asked to pay damages of $2,035,000.78, which sum it is claimed was lost by the people as a result of the recent street car strike. The suit raises the question of the right of persons engaged in public service to strike to enforce demands for better pay and improved work ing conditions. Receivers of the Pittsburg Railway company are named as party defendants. The actions of the strikers were and are unlawful, it is alleged, and infringed and invaded the rights of trade, business and travel, which was in violation of the constitution of the United States and the state of Pennsylvania and a conspiracy and a combination in restrainst of trade. Mr. Anderson places the loss he suffered as a result of the strike at 78 cents, computing the amount as the difference between the railroad train fare he paid and what it would have cost him to ride on street cars.

Conditions along the Mexican border are not alarming, and his refusal to permit Mexican troops to be transported through Texas, and his suggestion to the war department that Texas cav alry be mobilized should not be taken as an indication that imminent danger exists, according to Gov. W. P. Hobby, in a statement here today. The situation on the lower border is peaceful, the governor said, but conditions in the Kl Paso district are different, reports confirming that headway is being gained by Francisco Villa and General Filipe Angeles. In the event of Angeles and Villa capturing any important points in Chihuahua, Governor Hobby said it was likely outbreaks will occur at several points." The statement con tinues: "I am firmly convincd that preventing the passage of the troops through Texas and mobilizing the Texas cavalry under the direction of the secretary of war would have great force and effect to the end of protecting American citizens and the American border at the incipiency or a move ment which foreshadows trouble." at once. "I cabled President Wilson," said Mr. Dyer, "that we had given consid eration in the judiciary committee to some bills for repeal of war time pro hibition, to the extent of permitting the sale of beer and light wines. We have gone far enough, I told him, in con sideration of these matters, for me to know there was no chance of the com mittee recommending any bill of that kind. I told the president I felt the only hope was that he should tneke action under the authority Ifelt he had, and that he would do 'so at once to releive the situation." Mr. Dyer and other members of the judiciary eommtitee who have felt that a repeal measure would not be reported out. .have contended that the president would have full power, aftei July 1, lo declare by proclamation that demobilization was complete, which automatically would permit saloons closing on that date, to resume operations- o KUN TO VISIT PARIS More lockouts by the Western Union Telegraph company had taken place today, bringing the total for the last three days to 2.915 union workers, he said. He said that as a result of the strike and lockouts in the southeastern quarter of the country, the Western Union has resorted .to the "suitcase" route for delivery of messages, sub ject to indefinite delay, according to his reports from Washington. Action by the senate or the lower house would have no effect on strike, he said, referring to passage oi the Kellogg wire bill in the senate to day.

In comment on the treaty text, put into the record after a long fight yes terday by Senator Borah, republican of Idaho, there were three topics about which interest centered. They were the provisions affecting Shantung and the Saar valley, and the section providing for an international labor control. Sev eral senators opposing the treaty said the text revealed that the right of self determination in Shantung and the Saar had been more closely curtailed than had bean apparent heretofore, and that the international labor section went much further than they had ex pected. . tho ' inic. the svmDathetic strike move ment Mav la, are woirius,. mercial and brokers telegraphers were back at their keys this afternoon.
