CHICAGO, Nov. The long ox
pcctcd struggle l»',lv.« cn tin* union cm
ployees of the Chicago City railway
and the company was started yester
day, and ail attempts to run cars with
nonunion men resulted in violence on
the part of the strikers.
After the strike was declared tin*
trainmen gradually took their cars to
the barns of the company scattered
throughout the system and left them
there. In the shops, Imrns and power
houses the union men laid down their
tools and quit, de-•hiring that they will
remain idle until the company consents
to arbitrate the isuio that brought on
the controversy.
All along the lines wherever cars
wore started strike svi,\nntlii'zr.r* ,>,.i..
desperate onslaughts on the crews and
continuing as long as cars remained ou
the tracks. The tlenp is complete.
A number of cars were wrecked, and
that no person was killed is no fault of
the rioters. One man had bis back bro
ken, and the first shot of the strike
was fired at Wentworth avenue and
West Sixty-ninth street, where a mob
of several hundred persons tried to hold
up a train.
Following the trip of the mall car
efforts were made to move passenger
cars with nonunion crews. Four
trains were started on the Cottage
Grove avenue cable line, bound toward
the business district. At Fortieth
street an obstruction upon the rails
blocked the trains. A crowd of strikers
had assembled and shouts and jeers
greeted the train crews. A shower of
stones followed, and car windows were
demolished.
One man, a nonunion conductor, is
said to have been injured in the first
clash.
A mail car following the first passen
ger train was also derailed near the
scene of the blockade. Besides the
police detailed for service at the several
barns, as many more were quickly
made available to respond to emergency
calls.
Another cable train was derailed at
Forty-seventh street on the Cottage
Grove avenue line by a crowd of strike
sympathizers. A horseshoe was wedg
ed in the cable slot and brought the
train to a standstill. The gripman was
injured by the shock and was removed
to a drug store.
The strike is to enforce a demand for
a wage increase of 25 per cent and rec
ognition of the union. About 3.000
employees are involved and 220 miles
of surface truckage, part cable and part
electric.
Before nightfall President P. G. Ham
ilton and General Counsel BINs of the
railway company, after endeavoring to
operate ears in defiance of the strike of
its trainmen, announced after a confer
ence with Mayor Harrison that the at
tempt had been abandoned.
