In New York Prac
tically Ended.
Cleveland, July 26. 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
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.

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
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.

Cninprnnilne Acrrpted
Cincinnati, July 26. The messengers'
strike is'continued, but the lawlessness
that attended t heretofore is much les
sened by more active work of the
pojrce. Several now messengers were
attacked and beaten, but the police
rendered prompt assistance and they
axe noTr escorting the' messengers so
that attack is Impossible and no crowds
are allowed to collect. The Western
Union it using telephone service to
deliver messages and that way keeps
its service from becoming clogged. The
evening newspapers reconsidered their
decision about accepting unsold papers
and offered a compromise, which was
accepted, and the papers were again
on the' streets little before noon. The
compromise consisted in consenting to
receive all unsold papers of the first
two editions, the later editions to be
bought at the newsboys' risk. No
thange was made in the price of the
papers. '

Kegulating Immigration Suggested
by Several Experts.
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
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. John
Doyle, engineer of the Garfield Grouse
mine, was carried off by 20 masked
men. The sheriff had been notified

men reached the mine they ordered ,the
blacksmiths and other employes of the
mines back. The men employed at the
Garfield Grouse' are unable td conjec
ture what was the cause df the trouble.
Doyle was released by his abductors
after they had given him a severe beat
ing. He professes not to know who
the men" were' or why they punished

St. Johns, N. R, July 26. The mall
steamer Labrador, Captain Dawson,
from the Labrador coast, has arrived
here. She reports an Immense body of
Ice along the northern part of that
