it looked as thouph hundreds were ca-tlienr-d
and that he thought that 1 had

atcly left and went to the scene. T had
a talk with Depot master Fowler and
asked for Instructions and what we were
expected to do He informed me that
there was i.otlunc to do except to see
that no violence was committer! He also
Mated that the strikebreakers would
not be permitted to board the Southern
Pacific train: as the road would n H

were the strikebreakers nnd who wir
not. for they were scattered from one end
of the depot grounds to the other.
Many Had Lanterns.
To give an idea of the number of peo
ple present on the occasion. I will ask
you to recall Ihc occasions when our boy.T
went to the various training camps dur
ing the war. The crowd wis made up
of laboring men. the theater part. I
would cay. had left their various places
of work, some from the shops, etc Hun
dreds of the men were there, dres-sed in
their oerallr. covered with frrease and
their faces and bared arms gao Indica
tion that their work was nearby Dor.
eni of railroad lanterns were visible,
which indicated to me that the men
thawere perbaps switchmen or brakemei
The men had the look of determination
on their faces, and wh&t was said and
i done enve evidence of this fart. There
was no violence shown anyone, at nnv
j time. Occasionally a person would be
led off to one side as a strikebreaker, hut.
as I have already Mated, no one was
hurt, no b'ood was shed, nor was any
pre . rt dest ro ed.
Police Stopped Crowd.
"Winn the strain had deported and
thi 'row bad pretty well left th rail
way vards. the officers also loft and
came out to Wall avenue and Twenty

I I noticed a large crowd marching up
Twenty-fifth street toward Lincoln av

the; reached Lincoln avenue and Twen-

I to the center of the crowd, I noticed thivr
two or three of the men. who. It was
I claimed, were strikebreakers, had their
chocs off and were walking tn Shell stork-In-,-

shoes being off. or whether they toon
them fin themselves preparatory to mm;
( iriK : run. or whether some of the crowd
had commanded them to take them off.
al nn rate there were no officers pres
ent when the incident happened. I rem
onstrated with the crowd and warned
them that any further interference would
mean Immediate arrest and that 1
wanter the strikebreaker turned over to
me. and that I would see that they would
be taken care of. It took a few min

crowd to plve up peaeeabb In handllriT

forc going on with my report that I be

The Effects of Opiates.
HAT INFANTS are peculiarly susceptible to opium and its various
1 preparations, all of which axe narcotic, is well known. Even m the
M smallest doaee, if continued, these opiatee cause changes in the func
tions and growth of the cells which are likely to become permanent, causing
imbecility, mental perversion, & craving for alcohol or narcotics in later life.
Nervous diseases, such as intractablo nervous dyspepsia and lack of staying
powers are a result of dosing with opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet
in their infancy. Tho rulo among physicians is that children should never
receive opiates in the smallest doses for more than a day at a time, and
only then if unavoidable.
I Tho administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Soothing Syrups and
other narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot be too strongly
decried, and the druggist should not be a party to it. Children who are ill
I need the attention of a physician, aud it i3 nothing less than a crime to
dose them willfully with narcotics.

The men stopped and put "ii their sho

"At this time there were nine men
who bad been singled out as strike
breakers and who were taken from
