That the pres ence of the strong force of militia now doing service In this city has already had a most t salutary effect upon the lawless element was evidenced by the fact that the obstruction placed upon the tracks of the Big Consolidated street car lines durlngthe night were found to be fewer than at any time since the present strike was inaugu rated. Cars on four of the most important lines of the Big Consolidated system were operated throughout the night. In the morning practically the full quota of cars were running on all lines, except the Abbey, the Union and Clark avenue. It was, however", a notable fact that most of the dars were either empty or carried onjy a' very few pas sengers, even during the early hours of the day, when trafilc is Usually the heaviest Either through violence or out of sympathy for the strikers, a Very large proportion of the people declined, un der present conditions, to ride on the Big Consolidated lines and in most cases walked many blocks in order to reach the cars of the Little Consolidat ed company, which is not involved in the strike. About 1,300 troops are now acting in co-operation with the regular police force of the city, under the direction of the commander and under the head of the military power of the state. This force Tvill probably be augment ed Thursday by the arrival of several additional companies of soldiers from outside points. A riot which was not reported dt first occurred at Collinwood, a sub urban town, during the night at the crossing of the Big Consolidated and Shore electric lines. A spike placed between the ends of the two rails caus ed a car to Jump the track and block both lines. A mob of 400 persons quickly gathered and pelted the non union crew with all sorts of missiles. A second car came up and the non union men on it received similar treat ment. Eventually the crews of both cars were chase'd away, A call for assistance was responded to by Captain Itadder, of the naval re serves, with 15 men. Captain Radder' addressed the crowd and said 'he would order a charge unless Jt immediately dispersed. The rrfob answered with a ehower of stones and bricks.' A num ber 6f p6rs6ns, Including several mem bers of the Reserves, were struck and slightly Jnjured. With Fixed llayonets. A charg4' with 'fixed baydnets was then ordered and the mob quickly scat tered n all directions, ""ftjfs staled that a meeting of the mo tormen and conductors epiJoyied by the" 'tittle Consolidated lines of' which company Senator M.

' ' I Drnatr?ant T7!varnft nf ttio Titer Pinonl. idated announces that he wil) take bacfc 150 of the old men, provided they will apply Individually. He adds that possibly this number may be increased as vacancies occur as a result of the "weeding out" process to take place among the new men employed since the strike began. The strike leaders still insist that every man must be taken back and above all that the union must be rec ognized by the company. They claim that th'eir ranks remain practically ud broken and that they are In a position to hol'd out indefinitely; that the BJ'g Consolidated is losing money to the ex tent of many thousands of dollars per ATTACHED BRIDGE b day and sooner or later will concede to the demands of the strikers. At noon a Brooklyn trolley car was stopped on the Brooklyn-Brighton bridge b'y strikers who boarded the car, t dragging the jfconductor and motorman from their posts. The two men -were beaten and roughly handled, but not seriously Injured. The soldiers acting as special police and on duty at the barns came on the run, but the mob had by that time taken refuge in a fac tory at the bridge. The building was surrounded, but no arrests were made, the factory hands aiding the malcon tents to escape. i ' Cninprnnilne Acrrpted Cincinnati, July 26.

The Western Union it using telephone service to deliver messages and that way keeps its service from becoming clogged.

WEDDINGS AT THE LANDING Chief Inspector Dobbler Say Experience Teache That the S.cnnd Cabin 1 'tfftttenctr Are Fir it to Ue 'come Public Charge. New York, July 26. At the session of the sub-committee of the United States industrial commission,' Roman Dobbler, ehief of the board of Inspec tors of immigration testified that his experience was that clerks coming to the United States in the second cabin with $40 or $50 weie the first to be come public charges. Mr. Dobbler said many persons came in the second cabin to avoid the rigid scrutiny at the barge office. He believed many of the new arrivals had been coached as to their answers to ques tions put to them here. Dr. Lorenzo Ullo, legal adviser of the Immigration bureau, said there was a great difficulty in enforcing the laws owing to the many contradic tions. A case in point was the law re garding criminals coming to this coun try, whom the law requires shall be returned to the nation to which they belong and the port from which they came. Sometimes the criminal was an Oriental and came from Bremen. He thought the law should say that such persons should simply not be per mitted to land and the steamship com panies left to do with them as they believed best. Mrs. Virginia Stuckler, the chief ma tron at the Barge office, testified re garding the treatment of enciente wo men arriving here. Of 1,441 women arriving during this month In that con dition 52 were married at the barge of fice, 28 were admitted on appeal and the others were found to be married Women. Mrs. Stuckler said that there was an average of one marriage a day at the landing bureau. Thirty women arriv ed who had been unfaithful to their husbands, but, except in three cases, they were permitted to land. Mrs. Stuckler thought the laws should include an act prohibiting the landing of girls brought here for im moral purposes. There was no such prohibition in the present laws. Good Thine For America. - New York, July 26. Edwin Bru waert, French consul at New York, says of the new reciprocity treaty be .twen France and the United States: "I regard it as an excellent thing for the United States. America was the only country which did not have the benefit of our minimum tariff. As the manufacturers abroad are satisfied with a profit of five per cent., the difference between the maximum and minimum rates was sufficient to keep the United States out of the French market. France's annual Importation or manu factured articles is about $280,000,000 and the United States will get a good share of this. America undersells En gland In cotton goods in China and there Is no reason why it cannot do the same in France."' Mine Engineer Kidnapped. Cripple Creek, Col.,' July 26.
