denominations offered two plans to
the company and the strikers
Tho first plan calls for a board of

Philadelphia Feb 21 Mounted
and amply equipped for any kind or
s rlce the four companies of the
Pennsylvania state police numbering
200 men arrived here today to assist
the local authorities in maintaining
order during the street car strike
The troopers are all veterans of tho
regular army who have been on riot
duty In all parts of the state Them
presence is expected to have a salu
tary effect upon the lawless clement
that has been wrecking street cars
Arriving at the railroad yards In
the northern section of the city each
company detrained its horses while a
curious crowd looked on Then the
command to mount was given and
they clattered along the streets to tho
Second regiment armory at Broad and

riding distance of the Kensington Mill
district which Is giving the police
most concern Local mounted police I

troopers will not carry their carbines
The first attempt to operate cars at
