Boston and Maine railroads have

Only Minor Disorders
Chicago, July 7.—(By the Associ
ated Pdess) —With B. M. Jewell, head
of the striking railway shop crafts,
still maintaining the conciliatory at
titude he assumed after the strike
was under way, but declining to make
e first move toward negotiations
for peace, a considerable number of
outbreaks and disorders marked the
closing hours of the first week since
shopmen throughout the country
walked off their jobs last Saturday.
Federal injunctions restaining strik
ers from interfering with railway
operations, molesting workers and un
lawfully picketting shops, were issued
at East St. Louis, 111., and Shreveport,
La. i
Mobilization of state troops was
ordered by Adjutan General Black of
Illinois, following disurbauces in the
Wabash yards in Decatur.
The governor of Alabama, Kansas,
Missouri and Kentucky were asked
to send troops to scenes of disorders
and where peace was threatened in
their states.
Chicago, in the past 24 hours, ex
perienced its first outbreaks of vio
lence in connection with the strike.
A mob of strikers and sympathizers
which included many women, at
tacked and attempted to burn the
es of* two Illinois Central em
ployes at Burnsides who refused to
join the walkout.
The police dispersed the mob after
Mrs. Julia Gable, 59, the wife of one
of the Illinois Central men, held the
attackers at bay with a revolver when
they attempted to storm her hone*
Pitcketting of railway shops con
tinued in many parts of the country
ami ulsurders were reported in sev
eral places.
Despite these outbreaks there was
a general impression in railway cir
cles that the trend of the strike was
toward peace and hope was expressed
that Mr. Jewell would be brought
together with the railroad labor
board's two representatives in con
ference—Chairman Ben W. Hooper
and J. Wf McMenfftieh; two of the
three la,bor members.
' railroads, meanwhile, con- i
tiljPrt to employ men to take the |
places of strikers and the ultimatum
to return to work before next week I
or forfeit all seniority and other |
rights had been posted on numerous
railroads. Several short trains had
been annulled on the Chicago and i
Northwest and the Utah Short Line,
officials said. Railroads generally re
ported a slight interruption of traffic
as a result of the shopman's strike.
Strikers were reported at various
points to be straggling back to the
old jobs in uncertain numbers, but
theSe reports reflected no weakness
in statements from union headquar
ters where Mr. Jewell reiterated his
announcement that the strike was
virtually 100 per cent effective.
Mr. Jewell exhibited telegrams
from women’s auxiliaries of shoperaft
unions expressing support of the
strike. He announced also that first
sympathetic walkout by exhibiting
messages informing him that 2,500
moulders working for railroads had
joined the strike of shopmen.
A temporary injunction order is
sued by Judge English at East St.
Louis was directed toward strikers on
the ihinois Central at Mounds, Cen
tralia!iuttoou, East St. Louis and
other points in the Southern Illinois
district.

the New Orleans, Texas and Mexico
railway.

night by Vice President Calvin Cool
idge, members of the Kenmore Asso
ciation, lnc„ today opened their cam
paign to obtain a fund of $30,000 with
which to purchase and preserve the

of patriotic America.”
He added:
“A people who worship at the
shrine of true greatness will them
selves be truly great—no people can
look forward who do not look back
wards. The strongest guarantee of
the future is in the past. Unless that
which has been built shall stand with
an assured security, the motive for
further building is destroyed and all
our structures will go down in ruins.
“It is only when men begin to wor
ship that they begin to grow. A
wholesome regard for the memory of
the great men of long ago is the best
assurance to a people of a continua
tion of great men to come, who shall
still be able to instruct, to lead, to in
spire,"
In addition to Vice President Cool
idge, wl>o made the initial speech.

BRAZILIAN REVOLT WAS

rison of the Copacabana fortress,
which was finally put down by the

PEACE MAY BE
SLOW COMING TO
TROUBLED IRISH
Free State Troops Seem
j To Be Gaining Control
of the Situation But
Fighting Continues In
Some Sections
London, July 7. (By the Associat
ed Press.) —The provisional Irish Free
State government, by its victory over
the insurgent Republican forces in
j Dublin, is believed to have taken a
| long step toward establishing itself
firmly and bringing peace in Ireland.
Already the call to arms is regarded
as encouraging and furl her proof that
most Irishmen are hack of the new ;
government and opposed to the Irish t
I extremists.
Indications are not lacking, how |
ever, that Michael Collins and his |
colleagues will need all the support j
they can get to put down the remain- i
ing resistance, which, according to re
ports from some correspondents in J
Dublin, is of an important character. |
Those writers say the strength of j
the dissentients in the south and west ]
is greater than had been supposed !
and declared the downing of this op
position is likely to lie slow and costly
in Cork county where insurgent Re- j
publicans are reported to have hail J
the Held to themselves and have on- ‘
gaged in elaborate preparations to op-]
pose any movement against them by !
the Free State forces.
It is said the Free State forces will j
need to enroll soldiers to the full
strengtli provided under the Anglo-
Irish treaty and then have none too
many for the job of rounding up the
guerrilla bands acting under orders
of the Republican heailqquarters.
The arrival in Cork harbor last
night of a small squadron of British
warships lends additional color to
these reports, as it is believed the ves
sels were sent in anticipation of seri
ous trouble in that district and pos
sible attacks on the British naval sta
tion there.
Republican headquarters at Mallow
is issuing daily bulletins declaring the
regulars are holding large areas and
making rapid progress in several di-
