Cleveland, jury Z4. A Euclid ave
nue car loaaea with passengers was
wrecked by an explosion of nitro
glycerine or gun cotton shortly "before
11 o'clock last night. The names of
the injured are: Mrs. E. C. Martin
compound fracture of the skull, right
arm broken and internal injuries
which may prove fatal; E. C. Martin,
right arm badly cut and bruised about
legs and body; Mrs. Catharine Harris,
suffering from nervous prostration;
F. A. Smith, injured about legs and
body; Albert E. Fassett, legs injured;
Dora Schessler, bruised about the
body. Mrs. Martin will probably die,
The police are now out searching for
the buggy in which the dynamiter is
supposed to have ridden, and all sta-
tions have been notified to be on the
lookout for it.
Only cine to the Miscreant.
The police were quickly summoned
to the scene of the explosion, and a
force of men was detailed to investi
gate, with a view to running down the
person who placed the explosive on the
track. A boy living near the corner
saw the mysterious man in the buggy.
He said he noticed tbe buggy drive
up there and stop and saw the man
get out. He fumbled about the rails
for a minute or two and then jumped
Into the buggy and drove away at a
gallop. The explosion tore out the
front end of the car, smashed all the
windows and destroyed the brake.
After considerable difficulty the car
was stopped and a call for ambulances
was sent out. The force of the ex
plosion was so great that it shook all
tbe houses in the neighborhood and
was heard for a distance of two or
three miles. .
Effect of the Explosion on the Car.
Within a few minutes after the ex
plosion a crowd of a thousand people
assembled, and the injured were cared
for until the ambulances arrived. Pas
sengers who were on the car say the
explosion seemed to lift the whole
front end of the car. and it ripped up
the floor for more than half the dis
tance from tbe r.-est end The c was i
In fact a complete wreck. There
seems to be no doubt now that Mayor
Farley will call out the three or four
available military companies in this
city in addition to those already under
arms. Tbe call will include the battery
of artillery, and the governor may be
requested to send other troops to tbe
Continuous Rioting for Honrs.
In the vicinityof the Holmdenavenue
barns last night there was continuous
rioting for three or four hours. Every
car that passed was attacked with
stones, and several pistol shots were
fired at them. There was a lively
fusillade at one time, the non-union
crews returning the fire. The only
person hurt was a woman who was
shot in the finger as she stood in her
doorway. The police made twenty-five
arrests in that neighborhood. Rioting
continued all along H road way last
night, and it took three squads of po
lice as many hours to escort three cars
a distance of four miles to the barns
Fifteen or twenty of the rioters were
taken Into custody.

Scattering Mobs and Riots.
Cleveland, July 24. Rioting con
tinued throughout Saturday night, and
was renewed yesterday, and there were
several serious outbreaks of violence.
but no clashes between the mobs and
tbe troops. Cars were started running
as usual yesterday morning on all but
- one or two lines. Tbe mobs were astir
early. Soon after 10 o'clock a thousand
cr more persons gathered on Burton
street, on the south side, and pro
ceeded to obstruct the track. When a
car came along with two policemen on
board it was attacked with a shower
of stones. In spite of tbe policemen
the non-union motorman and conduc

the officers, both of whom were struck
repeatedly with stones, and but for the
intervention of a priest of the Roman
Catholic church near at hand the of
ficers might have been lynched.
There was a serious disturbance on
the Broadway line at the corner of
Petrie street, where a mob of 3.000 as
sembled in tbe forenoon and obstruct
ed the track. Finally a car came along
from the Wilson avenue barns having
on board Sergeant Burrows and a pri

The officer ordered the mob to disperse

with fixed bayonets, faced the mob and
attempted to clear the way. There was
a sharp fight for a few minutes, dur
ing which a perfect shower of stones
fell about the detective and tbe sol
diers, smashing the car windows.
In the afternoon a mob of 1.000 con
ceived tbe idea of blocking the track
on Orange street by placing a big
boulder in the middle of the street and
building a fire around it. The plan
worked successfully and cars were de
layed for nearly an hour. As a result
of the shooting of the driver (who was
abo'it to throw at the conductor) of
a grocery wagon in South Brooklyn
Saturday afternoon by a non-union
conductor, the mayor of that village
is&iied an order to tbe marshal to ar
rest all non-union conductors who car
ried concealed weapons. Every car
was stopped and each conductor found
with a revolver was arrested. All were
subsequently bailed out by the com
pany. A small riot was started at tbe
corner of I'earl street and Franklin
avenue when a young woman struck a
roan who asked her to board a non
union car. A crowd of union sympa
thizers stoned the cars.
The company has refused to arbi
trate for the reason that "the men who
went out on Monday last are not in
the employ of the company."
Tbe prpss committee of the strikers
has issued an appeal to the public
which, among other things, contains
the following: "We believe that force
ran be applied in many instances, and
that it is absolutely essential in the
present case. Government protects
life and property, but does not regard
labor in any light whatever. When
great aggregations of capital defy law

minishing the demand-for labor, they
must be met by an element strong

PARSONS GOES INTO POLITICS.
New Vork Labor Leader Starts a New Par
ty Scheme In Motion.
New York, July 24. The trolley car
strike, both in Manhattan and Brook
lyn, seems to be practically at an end.
General Master Workman Parsons say3
it is not, and yesterday at a meeting of
the Central Federated Union he
launched a scheme for a new labor
political party and at the same time
urged upon the delegates of the vari
ous trades unions in New York the
expediency of contributing to a fund
to aid the strikers, and the delegates
promised their financial support. This
is probably what causes General Mas
ter Workman Parsons and District
Master Workman Pines to promise
important developments in the strike
situation this week.
The project of the organization of a
new labor party was enthusiastically
indorsed by the delegates at the Cen
tral Federated meeting, a number of
speeches being made in its advocacy. A
convention was formally called for Aug.
7, the place of meeting to be announced
later. Every union and reform body
In the city of New York will be asked
to send delegates, and an organization
will be effected. At the meeting Sam

Federated union, presided. Master
Workman John M. Parsons and Dis

among the speakers. Parsons said the
time for action had arrived and that
the unions of this city must either
show their power as American people
or go down to destruction. It was de
cided also to institute a boycott against

One of the delegates denounced the
board of aldermen, saying: "They had
$150,000 to give to entertain Admiral
Dewey, but not a penny for the poor

Strikers Sentenced for Contempt.
Fort Smith. Ark.. July 24. In the
contempt cases which have been on
trial before the federal court for the
past two weeks Judge Rogers Satur
day passed sentence on striking miners
for violating the injunction of .the
court restraining the strikers from in-
ffci.c.'iirs wuu lua operation of the
coal mines and from Intimidating men
at work in the mines. Eight men were
given terms ranging from six to ten
months. In the opinion of the court
the claim that injunction proceedings
are new in such cases is as stupid as
it is false.

ALGER'S FRIENDS ARK INDIGNANT.
Detroit, Regardless of Parly, Will Do the
Detroit, July 24. Regardless of poll
tics or creed the representative citi
zens of Detroit gathered in Mayor May-
bury's office during . the noon hour
Saturday and expressed their indigna
tion at the manner in which General
Alger had been "forced out of the sec
retaryship of war." "We people in De
troit," said Don M. Dickinson, speak
lng of General Alger, "know that we
honor him. We honor him because of
his great ability, because of his tender
heart and because of his well known
practical charity. We are proud of his
administration of the war department
and we are proud still of the dignity
with which he has given up his office.
"It is fitting that we gather here to
day without respect to party And with
out a sense of divisional faction in the
parties to manifest our disapproval of
the injustice that has been done our
fellow townsman and in cordially
greeting General Alger in his home
coming. I wish' also to pav my respect
to that gentle and graceful woman who
has stood beside him and of whom we
are all proud."
Governor Pingree was the next
speaker. He said that his feelings
were such that he was afraid to give
expression to his deepest sentiment at
this time and this occasion. He de
clared that he was not afraid of any
newspaper or any person. "Neither am
afraid, continued the governor,
that I'll be read out of my party.
Michigan has been Insulted. Of course
you all know where I stand. But I
have no apologies to male for the at
titude taken toward General Alger and
J. L. Hudson said: "If we bad taken
a vote among bis fellow citizens as to
who was the most generous and the
most charitable of them all the honor
would surely have been accorded to
General Alger. As soon as I heard of
his resignation I said at once that he
should be given such a rousing wel
come home that we of bis own city
might show to the world how we honor
him and how we feel about the perse
cution he has suffered."
Representative H. M. -Cheever then
summed np Secretary Alger's part in
the management of the war as a great
achievement and referred to the scapegoat-view
of the situation. "But this
Is not the occasion," be concluded,
"upon which- to discuss the deep dam

other speakers were James E. Scripps,
