"Have you accomplished as. much as you
hoped for in that time?" was asked him.
"No, I would not say that. We had
hoped for early peace, of course. But it
takes two to make a bargain. The - em
ployers will not treat with us. That set
tles it. There is no other course but to
continue the struggle and put up the best
fight possible to us."

"Water Front.
Several Small Bdots Occur on the
Very little work was done on the water
front yesterday. The day was one of rest
for every one but the pickets placed by
the unions along the wharves. They were
as vigilant as ever- and allowed no oppor
tunity to pass whereby they might bene
fit their cause. Only two non-union men
were treated at the Harbor Hospital dur
ing the entire day, and neither of them
were badly injured.
• The injured stevedores were colored men
•who have been boarding on the Ohio.
They had been ashore overnight and when
they went to the front yesterday morning
to get aboard the vessel they were stopped
by the pickets, who sought to prevent
their reaching - the floating - boarding
house. E. S. James, one of the colored
men, drew a revolver and 'fired two shots
into the crowd of pickets, and his compan
ion, whose name is Henry Boose, assault
ed the union men with his fists.
A small riot ensued, out of which the
negroes came badly bruised. None of the
union men were hurt. While the fight was
in progress the police arrived and arrest
ed the whole crowd. James was charged
with discharging a weapon inside the city
limits and the pickets and Boose were
charged with disturbing the peace.
Albert Schiaber, a 'longrshoremari, was
arrested at the corner of Davis and Jack
feon streets yesterday afternoon for dis

Indulged in a little too much water front
¦whisky during the day and thought the
only proper •way to show his sympathy
¦with the strikers was to indulge in a
mimic Fourth of July celebration,- He had
fired but one shot when the police arrest
ed him.
A number of union men made a raid on
the restaurant kept by .Frank O. Mello
at 116 Jackson street yesterday afternoon
and completely wrecked the place. Mello
lias been furnishing meals to the non
union firemen employed along the front
and incurred the enmity of the strikers by
continuing to do so after he had been
¦warned against it. The men who did the
wrecking entered the place and without
warning proceeded to Juggle with the ta
bles and tableware. They remained only
about five minutes, but in that short time
