In a bloody battle between
strike breakers and police at the
United Railroads carbarn at
Twenty-fourth and Utah streets
shortly before midnight last night,
five of the nonunion men were
shot by the police and three prob
ably fatally wounded.
According to the evidence ob
tained this morning by the police
the battle was the result of a plot
concocted in the barn by the
strike breakers yesterday and car
ried, out with probably fatal re
sults last night
By prearrangement a wrecking car
crowded with strike breakers left the
Twenty-fourth and Utah street 6 barn
shortly before midnight. The car, with
all ; ljghts out. was run to Bryant
street, where there is a switchback. At
that point there is also located a tent
occupied by the pickets of the union
' armen. The police say that the strike
breakers, just before reaching thia
tent, broke all the windows in the car,
«in<3 then, rushing the car along at
liiph speed, passed the pickets* tent
and opened fire with their revolvers on
the union men, pouring a fusillade into
••the tent, and then sped on to the
• switchback.
/The car was. then hurried back
•toward the Utah barn, into which It
•x-as run. while seven of the crowd
aboard it took up a i*tand in front of
• the* "barn.
At this juncture three policemen
came running at top speed toward the
barn, having heard the firing. Reallz*
ing that the position of seven strike
breakers outside the barn betokened
• a serious situation, the policemen halt
ed and cried out to the strike break
er guards not to shoot.
.'Don't 6hoot, boys'" shouted Patrol
m,an' TTade, "we are policemen." But
.the warning wan unheeded an<l the
strike breakers opened fire on the three
peace guardians.
*. 'Realizing their danger the policemen
• drew their revolvers and returned the
• fire.- wounding five of the guards, who'
'feH to the ground. For a time the
battle resembled civil war.
The other two guards fled to the
ban*., the doors of which were hurried
ly harrlcaded to prevent the entrance
of the police.
Rlr>t calls were then sent in to the
Mission street station and as soon as
reinforcements of police arrived at the
htm the police surrounded the.
.barn In which were nearly 100 strike
breakers. A demand was then made on
the men within to surrender.
Meanwhile th windows of a house
.near by, which is occupied by strike
breakers, were opened, and shots were
fired upon the police, who emptied
their pistols in the direction of the
house and silenced the fire. The po
licemen placed a cordon around the
house. Half an hour later the police
men \u25a0 captured one of the two men of
the barn guard who had escaped.' He
proved to be H- Green, and was ldentl
- fled as . the man •who had opened fire
' on the police.
The plot had as its object the
awakening of sympathy, for. the strike,
breakers and a- further discrediting of
[ efforts by union men -to keep violence
| out of their fight against the United
till roads.
The wounded men were hurried to
