Several men made an effort to board the car, but they were kept fr.im doing so by the policemen, one of whom was sta tioned on each car step. The car ma.le rapid headway and almost before the expectant crowd realized what had hap pened it was well on its way over Quail etreet.

The crew consisted of four men. dressed In plain clothes. As tin car swung around the curve there was a rush for it, but the crowd w#s driven back. The committee from the strikers was allowed bo approach the men. "Do you want to come with us, boys? You won't regret It." BOMBAHDEO WITH BRICKS. There was no response from any of the men. The motorman with his sml'le gone waved them aside and the car was off again. AH restraint in the great crowd broke. Through the middle of the street men ran with women and children mln gfed with the officers of the law, whose clubs were swinging and arms moving In vain almost to keep fr,.m danger. B»me stopped to pk-k up stones and were push ed and overturned to be kicked and stum. bled over by others, B. fore the car started two policemen boarded it. They simply made two extra targets for the es and brick's. They had not gone fifty yards before one's helmet was crush ed and the other policeman was in dan ger of having more than his helmet dam ay,). There was a perfect funilade of slums. They came from all directions and crashed through windows, front rear and sides of the car. The men on board dodged and jumped from side to sMe to • ii and were successful with the ition of the motorman. A great Jag ged edged rock struck him full in the forehead and he dropped to the floor of the platform. It was a deep, ugly gash the rock left and blood flowed from it in a stream.

The conductors and one motorman joined the strikers and the wounded men went to the hospital. He said hl's name was Mar-] shall and he lived at Green Point, L. I. Five arrests were made and thus ended the first day's attempt to run cars. MORE RIOTING AT NIGHT. Several thousand strikers and sympa thizers chargi J at dusk a wagon load of non-union men, who had been sent out from the Quail street barns to repair the | trolley wires which had been cut during! the riots of the morning.

The wagon had no sooner stop. ! ped for the men to commence work than! a wild rush was made for them. The j police were powerless to stop the storm j of stones and bricks flowered upon the j non-union men from vacant lots, cross streets and house taps. The men lay up on their faces upon the floor of the wagon and surrounded by the mounted men who used their clubs on the more aggressive of the rioters were hurried 1 back to the barns. Two of the non union men wero injured. Several of the mob were severely clubbed. Three ar reets were made. The first step in the movement to quell disorder by military forces was taken to night when the Tenth battalion and Third signal corps of the national guard as sembkd at thelT armory.

LONDON", May 14.—According to pres ent plans, J. Pierpont Morgan will not go to America just now. The situation on the stock' exchange today waa the most remarkable known as far as Americans were concerned. There was absolutely no trading, the ar bitrage people not dealing, and Quotations were entirely nominal. The optimism with which yesterday's settlement of Northern Pacifla waft WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 15, 1901. hailed comes from the belief that It 1b only temporary. » A representative of one of the largest houses said: "Unless the Morgans and ICuhn, Loeb & Co. accept some such arbitration, noth ing can save the London market from a serious smash. The temporary arrange ment, it is believed, may overrun the next settlement, but not much longer. It is thought the arbitrators might set a fixed price. That would prevent serious failures and meet the views of Zvlr. Mur gan and Kuhn, Locb & Co." MACHINISTS' UNION TO STRIKE MAY 28 SHdPS NOT GHAXTIXG MAE-HOIR DAY WILL BE TIED 11* OX THAT DATE.

"Our past as a labor organization has been one continuous and never lagging '. effort to advance the interests, improve the conditions and elevate the standing of the railway conductors. On the whole, our efforts have been crowned ■with grand success. Wo find continually new conditions to deal with and new complications to face. We have, how ever,- accomplished a grand and a great work in securing and maintaining higher rates of pay, shorter hours for a day's work, pay for extra service, more favor able and considerate rules of employ ment, more stability and security in posi tions, and in materially assisting in se curing legislation affecting a great reduc tion in risks attendant upon the calling, and protecting the right of the employe to recover from the employer for per sonal injuries resulting from negligence of the employer, or from incompetency or carelessness of fellow employe. With the bonds of fraternity we have bound together 25,000 earnest, loyal, upright men, all working to one common good purpose. Fraternity means brotherly love. It means the essence of the golden rule. It is the hand-maiden of charity, and l/ well entitled to go hand, in, hand with the three graces, of which charity is pronounced the greatest. This frater nity leads our members to feel a deep Interest In the vif lfare of the loved ones dependent upon their; brothers, and through the insurance department of our order $4,500,000 ha« t*en paid in by our xr exnberi and disbursed to tho tamlllea OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE CITY OF ST. PAUL. of deceased members and to disabled ; members. This magnificent showing doea not exhaust the fraternal interest In each j other, for many of our local divisions maintain local sick, accident snd funeral benefit funds. PLANS FOR PRESENT. i "Of our present I will say: Cur record j in the labor world is an open book. Our I crder stands today In the foremost ranks lof effective, square-dealing, l>. slnpft.i --i like I rbi r organizations. We have 'tho I confidence of our members, the res ect of our employers and of the public, and 1 the friendship of our sister organiza > tions. Our order is in a more healthy J ; and vigorous condition than ever before I in its history. its membership was nev • cr so large or so earnest. Its Influence ! for good was never so strong." i "Much has been said from time to timo ! of the peril which threatened labor cr : ganizations and laboring people from tho 1 attitude of the federal judiciary, which : has been held to be a standing" menace. Decisions have been made by federal , judges which seem to be unfair to the mi i teresta of the workers; but as the causa j of liberty had its Koseiusko, its Wash-* | Ington and its LaFa.vette, co the ravsa i iif Justice nnd industrial freedom has its O.UlwtTi, its Hallett, its Riner. itn 1 Tar lan and its Woolson. It Id not visionary to predict that the future w(lll see 1 .b »r organizations on equal terms with incor porated capital, legal entitles in the I courts of the land | 'As the miner bores into the very I heai t of the mountain for the mineral ; wealth, ho we will bore into the future ■ for the good which we know ll< .-• hidden therein. Me will drive our drill of or ganization with the sledge of education; and as a reward for earnest, fmU.f.l la. bor, will wrest from the future the good we know it holds and which Is legitimated j ly the property of him who can work it out." ■■■_>■■■ Much more was said by the grand chief, end .when, he concluded there 'wao an j outburst of applause which left no doubt j as to the popularity of the speakf.r. MRS. MOORE SPEAKS. As seemed most fitting, the next speak er represented the Ladles' aux.liary. Mrs. J. IT. Moore, the grand president, ! Is a woman of pleasing presence, and at } the same time a forceful personality I which is brought much in evidence when ! she talks. She has a strong voice, and i knows how to handle It. In behnlt of I the auxiliary association she thanked ; the governor and the mayor' anil tlia | people of St. Paul generally for the many I courtesies that had already been cx i tended to both branches of the order. j Among other things, she said that to bo ; a true woman is to have a wealth of power, and she knew the auxiliary asso ciation was exerting a strong influence for good all over the country. She th. took pains to return a few compliments , to the governor who looked extremely happy at this particular time. FIREMEN SENT* GREETING. Frank P. Sargent, grand master Brotherhood u,t Locomotive Fir men, was the funny man of th/ even'ng. Hl* address was short, sweet and to tha point. lie first referred to a comparison made by the governor between M in - sota, Rhode Island and me other of the New England states, saying it ml.'nt be true that Minnesota was large! thin j Rhody. but the governor had fo:go t> I mention Vermont. If U.alt state wia honed out, he thought, it Woull !• b's j ger than Minnesota. Then he t<-ld c f the good time ho had been having ever »liioj the conductors had arrived. He t-ai.l "n« hfid been busy shaking hands w.th oli • friends the past two or thr*e da a anl : some of them wire frlfnds who ia tha ; hazy past had helped him al rig— from j division to- division. In speaking or !is I own order he paid Ithat he w. a "resent I In behalf of his little family of 25.0 0, ■ and that ho wanted to extend tb<- trioi- I ings and good wishes at every rr.cmts- I of his order to the conductors ::nd their ' wives and daughters. lie said th. ecu- A.
