Early lu u,e clay It became known to the
employes that President Urlsivold had put
new drivers on the cars and sent them out
on tne run. n iook liut a snort whde

.H2 'cIock a number of them gathered

came up from Anacostia tiiey sioppcsi the
li(ires and threw the car across the track.
This was only the first step, for as soon
as the other cars arrived at that point thev
'.H. tura lvt're "vnilleil. In less than huir
an hour niter tnaurtit. car wus inrowiioir, 'ill
the cars on tho road lay acrosi the track
within a very short distance of each other.
All this time It e crowd was Increasing
and cery one appeared to lie in swupatnr
ivith the ox-employes, for Just as soon as
one of them put their hands on a car to
derail it. tne bystanders would rush up.
lake hold and off the car would go In a
twinkling amid loud cnecrs. Tne cheering,
however, was eoon slopped by the police
officers tvlio l.atl l,oeii telephoned ror by
Mr. Grlswold. The excitement by this
time was Intense, tlie new drivers stood
on their cars uumhrouniicd. not knowlnir
what to do or what would be done next.
About this .time Supt. N ewton ap
peared on the scene. He immediately had
the horses mancii on tne two turn rarlhrat
east and ordered them luck to the siflbles.
They started off on a run, but not before

gait, but they had no terrors ror tlie
crowd, ror when tl e cars arrived at tlie
corner of Eighth und O streets they were
ucaiii taken tn charge by the vx-.-iiiplovea
unit thrown across Jiie track.
If possible, the excitement was now
evcil mule lutein, t.iall ai tne time or Ihe
riret outbreak on Missouri nvenue. All
along the .road during the run from Third
street northwest lo Eighth street southeast
the crowds uloitr the ktreeta shouted
'scab, scab: throw that scab driver off
tliat car." It was not. however, until cor
No. -5 arrived with a colored drl"er in
front that the crowd gave expression to
its peut-an feelimj. Nothing -was. of course,
said tt the colored drttcr. but the crowd's
criticism of the management ot the rodd
for bringing about such a state of affairs
was anything but pleasant fur the otliciais
to hear.
From this point the cars were sent on
again with two police officers on each to
keep tlie people from crowding ou. Some
how or other tills plan was not a success.
I for by the time the cars arrived at the cor
I ner or ;s aiiu L.tAtuui streets luey were

behind after ull the other curs were sent

Shortly after the first ear was sent to

that they intend to give the union men

tney think they are right and are only
claiming their rights.
Early In the evening Messrs. J. E. Tralnor
anil L. Lusby, representing the Railway
Assembly, called on Mr- Grlswold. at hi
residence In Anacostia. Mr. Grlswold is
reported as having been studlou.Iy iiollte
to tlie callers, but would uot, under any
consideratlou, enter into a discussion ot
tlie trouble between himself nnd members
of the assembly.
He did not Invite the callers Inside the

the gentlemen had matches with which to

would find good.
In speaking of the lock-out, a prominent
member ot the Rnilway Assemble said
last evening, that the men are determined
not to submit, and the assembly will back
them In their fight to the end. There Is
no doubt, he said, but they have the sym
