that a crowd of guards und strlke-brouk
ers had created considerable disorder in
the vicinity of Seventh and Perry Streets,
between tho hours of 1 and :t o'clock
yesterday morning. It was said that resi?
dents of that locality were terrorized
by the shouts and tho firing of pistols.
The report spread so rapidly and thor?
oughly over tlio city that, finally, tho
Mayor set .about Investigating It. He
waited upon Captain George Sklpwith,
who had charge of the post at Seventh
end Perry Streets, and told him of tho
rumor. Then the matter was sifted to
t.iio bottom, and it was learned that the
firing was dono by some one In tho
Southern yard?. Just off Perry Street,
Watchman Harris, who was on duty
all night nt the oflice of the Passenger
and Power Company nt that corner, said
he heard the firing, and presumed It
was done by watchmen In the Southern
yards. Ho said ho often heard such
firing, and it did not startle him. Ho
also said thnt tliorc were no guards or
Htrlkn-brcakors at tlio office all night,
after Ilio laut cars left for Richmond.
A detail of four men was left ns guards
at tho oflice, and It was certain that these
men did no shooting.
The Mayor was satisfied with the result
of hit- Investigation, and oxpresod re?
gret that such a groundless rumor had
gotten in circulation.
The Petersburg cars ran until ? o'clock?
without accident or Incident. Ono of tho
old men. Conductor Cheiilham, went out
on one of tho cars, and It. was reported

arise after thai. time.

This is pay-day at. many of tlio big shops

Attempt to Wreck a Car Last Night.
W?rs Across the Track.
AVhlte thero woro no mishaps of a seri?
ous sort, several narrow escapea mado
ilio, trips of the cars on tho Seven Pines
line yesterday flavor more or loss of ex?
citement to ilio little bunch of passen?
gers gathered op. each. When night, bo?
gan to shield tho fields nnd bushes along
the way in darkness, tho care wero
stopped for tho day, nnd well no, for it
is obviously not yot sui'o to run them
after this time.
Tho most serious happening of tlio day
was a palpable attempi to wreck tho fast
flying car which was pulling in from
Seven Pinci abpttt dusk. At Fair Aaks,
a railway switch fills across tho car
track, and on this switch was a flat car
used by tho railway. It was nearly 8
o'clock when Ilio Seven Pines car, malt
lug tor Richmond on Urn lust trip, went
lying in the direction of ji'air Oaks, and
it was at that, ttino Just possible to soo
clearly up the track. It was well that
this was so, as tho sequel showed.
Fifty yards from Fair Oaks, the motor
nntii begun to twirl his breaks In ? floreo
fashion, as a result of which vigorous
operation tho car caino to a standstill.
Not many feel away, standing half way
across the track, with its sharp end point?
ing at the middle of tho cur, was tho
ponderous fini enr. to which reference
luis been made. Had it been a llttlo
darker, it would not have been seen in
time and tho result would have boen
disastrous. As it whs, tlie soldiers Jump
oil off, and with Ilio assistance, of tlio
car. pushed tho obstruction, nut of tlio
'Mien the car went on and reached niell?
inomi in safety. Thorn wore eovernl ne?
groes aboard who had been to Seven
l'Ines for "I'cckernilon." Two or throe
torpedoes went off under the car when

it ivas dyiiamlto and were preparing to
make a trip through tho air.
Wire Stretched Across.
Throughout the morning mid early nf
ternoon several little incidents occurred
to give the soldiers work and worry. The
?first car out ran sp?he into a heavy wire,
stretched aerosa Ilio track from pole to
poi??. Fortunately ,ni' Motorman Matt?
iiox, who was in charge, II was a vestii

At different puintH ?long the truck

Koldleri pulled B0|J1Q of them out; at other
placet ilio car run, unharmed, over them.
An old stove was alno found In tlio mid?

Lawlessness Condemned,
Editor of Tlio Tlinoli.pispatch!
.Sir. I In common wllli all law-abiding
and sclt-respet ting people of Kkhuioiul and

prised at tlio spirit of lawlessness th.it
li.is prevailed, in this vicinity in tlio past
tow days. 1 never thought it wind?! ever
be so that life und properly would be
endangered a? ii has been or that our of*
licere both city and oxnmty (especially (ho
county) could have been bo blind and ln
dUpoBod la see thing? an they uro. i'
ii.'llevo II largely owing to the fact that tho
lawless element kuuwlnu as they did that
they wero practlcallv exempt from ar?

successful in creating tho disorder that
has existed In tho past few flays.
When tho Mayor of the city gives *i

credited to him nnd our olllrcis openly
bnnst that It will be a cold day In Jim"
