FRIDAY, MARCH 5. 1886. STRIKING CAR DRIVERS. The Attempt to Run a Car Over the Cross-Town Line. Nkw York, March 4.—The “Cross- Town” line wade another attempt this afternoon to resume operations. At 1:30 p. ni. the police reserves were called to the eastern terminus of the Grand street line. Superintendent Murray and In spector Steers were present and made preparations for the battle. At noon over GOO policemen were on the scene, and when the reserves arrived fully 1200 were in line. They kept the street clear, but on the north aide the strikers were collected, and with thousands of the lowest classes of men from the crowded tenements of the narrow streets east of the Bowery formed a threatening body capable of auy form of outrage and riot. The police patrolled the streets from Bowery to East'Kiver. and kept the men in motion, but such a great mass of people could not be controlled altogeth er. They surged along with seemingly irresistible force. It was a scene of de struction and a task of forcing a passage seemed herculean. Standing in front of the Grand street ferry house, as far as the eye could see, were overturned horse cars, carts, trucks and wagons of all kinds. At 2:50 a car started from the stables and proceeded under an escort of 50 po licemen. The line of march was formed, headed by Superintendent Murray and Inspector Steers. First came six pla toons of police. Then followed a car enclosed in a hollow square of police numbering 100. The rear was closed by six more platoons of police. The forces started amid hooting, yelling and shouts of derision from the mob. No obstacle was met with until the car reached Cannon street. There was a horse car lying on its side. It was lifted from the track by the policemen who formed the advance guard of the column. There after progress was slow. At Madison street, the first stone was thrown and struck the side of the car in which were some minor officials ef the company and a Sergeant of Police. All the way to the Bowery the track was obstructed with wrecks of street oars and trucks, but the advance guard cleared them away. At Bowery another stone crashed through the car window. At East Broadway a large stone was placed beside the track unnoticed and the car thrown off. This mischief was greeted with a tempest of yells from the thousands lining the streets. Oatbs and hisses, calls, screams and wild cheer ing made the street a perfect pande monium. The car was lifted on the track and proceeded. At Lu: low street another window was smashed and rot ten eggs were thrown. At Allan street a blockade was met. Cars of the Secend Avenue and other lines were placed in all positions across tbe track. Stones again flew and another car window was broken. The obstructions were removed and the car proceeded slowly on. At Eldridge street more blackudes were found. The crowd attacked the police and a general tight took place in which clubs were used and cars were driven into tbe street. Grand street mer chants closed their doors and put on their iron abutters. At Grand street sta tion of the Third Avenue elevated road was an immense batricade of cars, wagons and trucks. For blocks in every direction <-ouid be seen long lines of cars and trucks in inextricable confusion. All travel was suspended. It was 2:45 p. m. before tbe track was cleared of tbe many cars which bad been placed on crossways of the street. From Mulbury street to Centre the riot began again. A stone thrown against the car struck Sergeant McKver. The police lost all patience and charged the mob furiously. They clubbed right and left, and suc ceeded in driving the rioters down the side street. From there to Broadway tbe battle waged with undiminished fury. Many were clubbed and a num ber of police struck with stones. Broad way was reached, after a hard struggle, at 3:05 p. m. Here fully 50,000 people were gathered. Tbe spectators' hissing and hooting and yelling were con tinuous, and atones continued to drop against the escort. At Wooster street a pile of brick fell as tbe car was passing and stopped it. This removed, another barricade was met and removed amid the hoots of the workmen. As the car went towards North river, the factories on either side poured out their thousands of employes, who met the pollea with execrations and reproaches. West street was a vast barricade of coal wagons, beer wagons and logs. At Dexter street a load was dumped on the truck. When tbe end ofthe route was reached, the men were allowed to reat 10 minutes after their terrible march. They then returned over tbe same route to the stables. Very few obstacles were offered to their progress. During tbe trip both ways the car was allowed frequently to oha'nge from one track to tbe other. The strikers yelled and booted, but did not obstruct the way to any extent until Bowery was reached. There was an other barricade, but it was soon removed and then the way was clear to the sta biea which were reached at 4:30 p. m. The strikers and police left before 5 o'clock. Tbe police flouriabed clubs, gave com mands and spit threats alternately, but Ie vain ; there was no hope, and tbe po lice were powerless to act. While the police were standing looking at tbe acene, gangs of men rushed along ad ding additional obstructions on the track. At Gannon street a wagon was turned upsido dew* on the rails. At Loerlck street a car of the Forty-second street line was toppled over on the track. Six cars in all were turned across the track, and the side streets were blocked with wagons waiting their turn. Two beer trucks had tbe wheels broken off and fell across tbe tracks, at a point on East Broadway a load of coal was dumped on tbe track. At an other point the switch plates were taken away. Further on a pile of bricks and building poles lay on tbe track. The contest was practically overat this point and orders were issued to start back to the stable. Tbe strikers good naturedly chaffed tbe policemen, but went about work in a way that showed organization. At Mangin street the strikers tore up several curbstones ana placed them on tbe track. Another attempt will be made to start a car later this afternoon. The Board of Police to-day received a letter from tbe Railway Company asking for police protection for their employe* and property. Theatrical Item. "Are you an actor?” said one ofthe “profess” to a stranger yesterday. "No, sir.” “That’s strange. Your face looks very familiar to me.” “No doubt ef it. I'm a pawnbroker." —Goodall’s Chicago Sun. The Pacific Statement. New York, March 4.—The Southern Pacific Company did not begin opera tions until March 1, 1885. Its fiscal year ended December 31,1885. and the follow ing is the company's statement for 10 months; Gross earnings. $2T.'.1'73.*75; operating expenses, $12,669,646; net earnings. $13,304,229. Adding rental for leased lines, $359,370, makes a total of $13,720,160. Deducting from this amount interest on bonded debt sinking fund taxes and *ll other expenses and charges $11,407,400. and construction of improve ment* $523,280, leaves a net profit of $1,894,066. The Pacific system of tbe company contributed to the gross earn ings above mentioned $17,122,617; to tbe operating expenses $7,293,557, and to tbe net earnings $9,829,060. Intense Excitement. SrRtXGFiKLD, Ohio, March 4.—Excite ment in the labor situation is still in tense. The proprietors of the East Street Reaper Works claim that only 388 men are out, but the men themselves clai ii that that 800 are out. There is no violence. If no settlement can be reached,.). B. Powderly, Master Work man of the Knights of Labor, will be ap pointed to act a* arbitrator- The dis charged men have received many offer* of he I[> from business men and others. The men call on all workmen to stay away from Springfield until the difficul ty I* settled. The men are already talk ing of boycotting and are in a great state of excitement. Most of tbe men discharged will be destitute in a short time. The proprietors of the other fac tories refase to discharge the Knights of Labor men in their employ. Indications ef Trouble. Galveston, March4.—These are many strong Indications to-night that the la bor troubles on the Texas Pacific and other lines in North Texas will be ex tended to this end and other South Texas points within tbe next 48 hours. D. H. Black, a member of District Execu tive Committee 78, Knights of Labor, ar rived in the city this evening from Fort Worth. He has been in secret confer ence with tbe local assembly until mid night. Other members of tbe District Executive Committee will arrive to morrow. It is thought that the local Knights will seize tbeopportunity while Texas railroads are paralyzed, to enforce tbe Mallory boycott against tbe Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe road and Missou ri Pacilio, both of which lines paid no at tention to tbe order boycotting Mallory freight. As the Santa Fe road handles the bulk of tbe Mallory freight, it is thought the first aggressive move will be against that line. Local Knights have made known no other grievance. I’heir intentions are carefully concealed. There is a general fear of impending trouble. Strikers Discouraged. A Fort Worth special to tbe Express, last night, says: The time given to the strikers on the Texas and Pacific to re turn to work or suffer discharge, ex pired at 10o’clock this morning. None of the men went back. New forces are being organized in every department, ana the places of nearly all tbe strikers have been supplied. The officials had numerous applications for work which were rejected. Tbe freight office opened to-day, and is receiving all shipments, except live stock. Tbe strikers are dis couraged, and think the movement has been badly handled. The state executive board of Knights of Labor is here and will bold a meeting to-nigbt to discuss means of assisting tbe strikers. Indications are now that an effort will me made to inaugurate a general strike on the Gould lines, which Is regarded as the only chance of suc cess. A committee of Knight* has furnished the Daily Gazette with a statement of the grievances for publication. It gives as causes of the strike: Repeated violation of the contract be tween the Gould system and Knights of Labor, made at St. Louis, March 5, 1885. Discharge of Employe Hall at Mar shall, alleging that tbe cause was preju dice against tbe order. ' Employment of coolie and convict labor by tbe Texas and Pacific, and lastly, demanding an increase in wage* in trackmen from $1.15 to sl.soper day. The State Treasury, Etc. Editor San Antonio Light Big Foot Postofkick, Frio County, Texas, February 27,1886.—Permit a citi zen to communicate his views through your paper on a subject which ought to interest many. It does not take the wis dom of a Solomon nor tbe eloquence of Ciesar to notice and give utterance to facta as they are and on affairs that are drifting from bad to worse. It will take honest and bold men, true to their dear bought liberty, to themselves and to their fellow-men and to the rising gen eration. to put down the brake and check the down grade (descend) and re turn to former condition of this com monwealth and improve tbe financial condition of the Texas State Treaury. Why shall ws need so much more more in proportion to our now assessed value of property and increase of population to run ;our State Governments. Is there ■o way to diminish the expenses of criminal proceedings in felony cases? Is the grand jury system an expense that could not be dispensed with or modified. Should not terms In tbe peni tentiary be extended and a reform school established for young criminals and va grants to learn trades a* well as needful education, self-sustaining by proper management? Virtues needs training: It is not the work of one day nor the capacity of one Individual to accomplish such a reform. There were heroes in every age and patriots in every generation who brought changes at any cost. In this generation a Republican form of Gov ernment Reform Is all that is needed. Tbe muses, the tax-papers, have to urge Reform. The people’s money ought to be economically used, and they must delegate honest, true and Intelligent men to bring about Reform, through proper Legislation, and amending the constitution. Admit illiterate to public schools regardless of age. Reform. Benefit Hop, Friday night, March sth, at Arbelter Verein Hall, by the pupils of Sime. Don aldson’s dancing class.

From tbe Clarksville Standard Philadklitiia, Feb. 20, 1886. Dear Standard—l find in your Table column the following note and comment. Tbe Light, of Sun Antonio. Is a hand some sheet, and very truthfully says in answer to the Waco Examlaer's claim of priority for a city: "San Antonio was the principal city of the Southwest, and was known tbe wide world over before tbe site of Houston had other inhabit ants than the alligators and snakes of buffalo bayou.” To this you reply thus: “This is certainly true to our knowl edge. San Antonio was the only city of Texas in 1836, neither Houston nor Gal veston had any existence except waste land. Houston had not even a name.” Your statement to my knowledge is correct. In 1836 Houston bad no ex istence except waste land. After tbe battle of San Jacinto had been fought and won, and the fame of General Houston, the Texan commander, was spreading abroad; with the adroitness peculiar io Northern men, a New Y'orker purchased a league of land on which be founded the city of Houston. Tbe exact sum be paid for the land, at this late day 1 fail to remember, but I am confident it did not exceed $5OO. In these days thia may be considered a very small amount of money for four square miles of land, but at that day it was considered a fair price. He founded tbe city of Houston on a magni ficent scale. I'be seat of government was temporarily located here, and in tbe spaco of two or three years tbe solitary grove skirting -Buffalo Bayou and the wild grandeur of tbe prairie had given place to a town, with several hundred inhabitants. 1 was In Houston when it* inhabitants were living and doing business in tents, and shanties. With a man from tbe shingle making region of the State of New York, 1 went into tbe business of manufacturing clap boards on White Oak bayou. With an old yawl we trans ported our merchandise to Houston, which was then in great demand and brought a high price, there being no other roofing or weather-boarding ma terial. At that time all the buildings in Houston were constructed by setting poles in tbe ground and siding them up and roofing with clap-boards. The pros perous business of manufacturing clap boards however was of short continu ance, as vessels from New Orleans com menced arriving with cargoes of lumber of all kinds and all manner of building material, and soon "Othello's occupa tion was gone.” The San Antonio Light can justly claim its city’s priority. Before the city of Houston was thought of. San Antonio was a city with a population of about 7000 or 8000. It Is truly the ancient town of Texas. Spanish settlements were made here as early as 1692. In 1838 I bad tbe pleasure of visiting those ven erable piles, the Spasisb missions, where nearly 200 years before the standard of the crags was first planted in Texas. There on the San Antonio River settle ments were first made. The missions, to my gaze, in 1838, presented a solemn and gloomy grandeur. Tbe venerable piles were monuments which told of by-gone days. The entrance to the buildings was through a magnificent arched gate way which led into a spacious court, and thence into a large arcbed-roofed apart ment sufficiently commodious to accom modate several hundred persons. Among the most important of those venerable monuments of past ages, the Missions of Conception. San Jose, San Juan and Elspado, were the most im portant. None of them, however, were at the time of my visit, occupied for tbe purpose designed bv their pious foun ders. My first visit to these first settle ments of Texas excited emotions within me which cannot now be described. Everything that met the eye. spoke of a by-gone race. A melancholy change had taken place. Tbe plaintive notes of Christian devotion which were once chanted in them were heard no more, silent all, tbe Christian instructor and tbe savage warrior were sleeping tbe sleep of death, to awake no more until the nations of tbe earth are summoned to their final accounts. There had tbe pious Fathers of the Catholic church gathered in the savage red men of the forests and prairie* and taught them the more acceptable way of worshiping the Great Spirit. San Antonio at that day presented in its bouses a system of defence. The houses generally built of stone and gen erally but one story high, with flat roofs and a parapet or strong wall above the roof which was pierced for fire arms, as well as the walls below. In the town stood ihe celebrated fortress, tbe Alamo, one of tbe Spanish Missions ; a building which everything connected with was interesting —a building which every true-hearted American who gazes upon it. will drop a tear to the memory of tho 180 who were slain within its wails. The Light is correct in claiming priority for San Antonio. It has an an cient and heroic fame as compared with all other towns in Texas. The heroes of tbe Alamo are distinguished above all others of modern times. The Alamo distinguishes San Antonio above all otoer towns for tbe acts of which it was the theatre. G. Nelson Smith.
