an arsenal equipment, but by an in

the trouble looked as if it had done
nothing more than any otiior grass

Union Men Reluctant to Strike While
Negotiations are Proceeding—Many
Outsiders will Work.
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Aug. 19—The strike de
clared by the Amalgamated Society
of railway servants and three allied
societies was attended with compara
tively light rioting today -hough the
afternoon brought reports of blood
shed at Balonly. Wales, where troops
fired upon mobs, killing two and
wounding a third person.
Shortly before this news was receiv
ed here the home office issued an
optomistic bulletin on the strike sit
uation. It read:
"Perfect tranquility and order pre
vailed throughout the London district.
Reduced but affective train service.is
operated at all stations in all parts of
London, and is working at its full ac
tivity with the exception of lighter
men who are still on a strike. No
serious rioting is reported from any
(part of the country although' there
have been disorders at various points.
The lord mayor of Liverpool reports
that he is being loyally supported by
magistrates, officials and a large num
ber of citizens. Three thousand spec
ial constables have been sworn in at
Disorders mentioned by home secre
tary Churchill were cheifly between
the strikers and police in northern
towns. It was officiall yannounced
this evening that itihe /negotiations
which are in progress at the board ot
trade had taken a more favorable turn
late in the day, though nothing defin
ite in the way of settling the strike
had yet been arranged.
LONDON, Aug. 19—The chief rail
way companies of England are living
up to their promises to maintain re
stricted train service under the pro
tection oi soldiers and police. Trains
were running this morning on all
lines although greatly reduced in num
ber. A fair percentage of men re
mained loyal while a large number
of applications were made for work
by outsiders.
Even some of the union men being
reluctant to strike while negotiations
were proceeding. Four unions adopt
ed resolutions not to strike until some
decision has been arrived at between
the government and the leaders and
railway managers.
LONDON, Aug. 19—Railway centers
were closely picketed by representa
tives of the unions but these were
prevented by the soldiers and police
from having any intercourse with the
men at work.
The railway stations presented a
rather deserted appearance during the
forenoon, most of the porters being,
out. Few persons attempted to travel
and the usual rush was confined to
those lines operating suburban serv
The great central lines which were
completely paralyzed yesterday re
sumed operation today. The mana
gers being successful in moving a
few trains in and out of London. The
Northwestern railroad, upon which a
large proportion of} &nen remained
loyal, maintained a good service and
the company in a manifesto thanking
their employees, announced that all
who refused to strike would be given
double pay during the strike period.
The Great Northern railway also
kept up a fairly good passenger serv
ice, but like other lines running north
was unable to accept goods. These
features of the strike affecting as they
do the working classes helped to make
the strike unpopular with those not
directly concerned. Workers are suf-"
fering much more than others as all
roads have been compelled to discon
tinue the usual cheap fares to work
ingmen, and the inability of the latter
to get to their work has created in
some instances a hostile feeling to
ward-the union.
The strikers are meeting with more
success outside London. The strike
is general in Dublin, where the unions
claim that SO per cent of the employes
are ou+ Express from Dublin to Cork
and Dublin to Rossclare harbor have
been discontinued and trains operated
today were in the hands of unexperi
enced men.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Aug. 19—The
annual encampment of the National
G. A. R. to be held in Rochester the
coming week will be notable for the
record-breaking number of regimen
tal and brigade reunions to^e held
in conjunction therewith. The unus
ually large number of reunions is due
chiefly to the fact that the present
year marks the fiftieth anniversary
of the beginning of the war. In addi
tion of the. G. A. R., the organizations
of national scope that will meet during
the week will include the Women's
Relief Corps, Ladies of the G. A. R.,

Auxiliary, Women's* Veteran Relief
Union, Ex-Prisoners of War, Naval
Veterans and Andersonville Survivors.
