tboujrh Into a wilt beast's cajre, aod
hooted, bowled and threatened bodilj
violence. The local police wer on
hand, but could do nothing.
A Journal reporter reached the ela
tion while the trouble wan at iu height
He tu mistaken for a member of the
order that the crowd w objurgating,
lie was hustled, lnsulte 1, struck at and
hi life generally made unpleasant for
him until he had to seek shelter inside
the station.
Here he found a few earnest looking
men, many of them elderly, quietly
sitting about, silently awaiting the
special train and paying no attention
to the insults and outrages. Small boys
dahed through the rooms, while their
larger and older brother stayed outside.
Several times the reporter went out
side and saw no change in the sent!
ment except that the crowd was grow-
lng impatient at tbe wait and was
stamping and singing in an endeavor
to keep warm.
After several false alarms, the train
bearing the visiting A. P. As. pulled
in, and was greeted with hisses and
fairly desperate howls.
Back from the train came a thunder
ing chorus of cheers and the crowd
stared affrighted. The latest reports
received from Boston were that only
250 men were coming, and here were
eight closely packed cars!
A band went to the front, and colors
followed. Then red fire was lighted,
and the procession moved with the
wierd, warm light of the burning
chemicals, casting a blood hue over all
Long and continued had been the
jeering and insulting the remarks. But
as the torches blazed up and the crowd
saw the long line and realized that
there were 1,200 enthusiastic men
there, silence became noticeable and
the mob fell into step alongside the
column of fours, while the band played
stirring marches, and Mr. Dunbar, red
fire in hand, led the way.
Up Lowell street to the Common,
where the soldiers' monument loomed
up through the darkness, the proces
sion took its tortuous way. Everywhere
people had come together to see it, but
it was received in silence. No lights
flashed from the windows, and on the
outside all was stony and silent and dis
approving. But within that column what a cot
trast! Every man from outside the
town was hale and strong. Each was
gayly decorated. All were enthus
With the power of a 'battering ram
they charged onward and up to the
Town Hall. Here the mob had col
lected and tried to force and entrance
into the hall, but was once more over
awed and swept back, while the column
went on and on until the platform, floor
and gallary were packed, the aisles
could hold no more, and still the A. P.
A. men pressed forward.
So an overflow meeting was held in
the Grand Army Hall, and this was
But a hundred or so o( the rabble and
a few score reputable citizens of Con
cord were permitted to enter the upper
hail, and then the meeting began.
It was a wild scene at first, and again
and again the hot-heads among the A.
P. A. forces started to clear the hall.
But Mr. Dunbar would not permit this.
He exercised a remarkable control of
the great crowd, and with the aid of
the law-abiding members prevented
trouble, though at times this was hard.
But after the meeting came the chief
time of trouble. The column re-formed,
with the Concord lodge leading, and
then the band, followed by the colors,
two stands of colors, like the badges
being simply "Old Glory."
Further down the line came a trans
parency marked on one side "The A.
P. A. Has Come to Stay," and on the
other "No Rome Rule In America."
This was regarded with hatred by
the crowd.
Stones begin to fly at it, as well as
toward the rear guard of the proces
sion. Stones flew thick and fast.
Men reeled and staggered and then
marched falntingly on. Several times
the rear guard formed and faced the
mob, which at once fell back and waited
vntil the retreat began once more.
As the transparency went across the
Common, two or three of the mob made
a rush and seized it, bearing it away in
triumph, amid the exultant jeers of the
But short-lived was that triumph.
As the great waves gather around and
then pile forward with relentless force
as the whirlpool gathers, so came the
men of the A. P. A. Deep and alarm
ing was their rallying cry. Once more
it was only the power of their leaders
that saved trouble, for the mob who
had stolen the transparency were al
lowed to escape, while it was borne
proudly back and joyously swung aloft.
The Lowell road is dark, lined with
hedges and swamp willows between it
and the low river land that stretches
away on either hand. A few weak
lamps vainly try to illuminate its long
and broad expanse.
Behind the hedges and willows lurked
the main body of t!vc mob, while a de
tachment dashed on ahead and threw
obstructions in the way of the advanc
ing column.
From behind the hedges and willows
came a volley of stones and bricks. Men
foil and lay like log, to be picked up
and dragged on by their friends. Two
drums were smashed as though they
were made of the frailest china, instead
of tough hide and springing wood. Tbe
storm continued.
The: men drew their revolvers and
began firing into the air.
This amused the crowd, as had the
blazing of whole bunches of fire-crackers
In the midst of the march, set off
by the youthful members of the mob.
But there were earnest, warm-blooded
men In the hundreds that were march
ing, and they liked not the insults of
the stones and the injuries received
therefrom. They blazed heavenward
with their revolvers, and their looks
were dark and their eyes burned.
It was noticeable that the pistol shots
sounded in the unmistakable way that
comes from rammed-ln ball on copper
bound powder.
There came alongside a particularly
dark place, from which the head of the
line received many well-aimed stones.
Suddenly several of them drew their
revolvers and rushed through the dark
to the side of the road, and fired point
blank Into the gloomy meadows.
It was a dramatic, but a terrible
A Journal reporter saw the sudden
charge from a vertical to a horizontal
line of fire, and hurried forward in time
to see three men blazing away Into
utter darkness that surrounded them.
One man in the column was a short
blonde, with a big mustache. He wore
the A. P. A. eadge. The reporter
hurried across to him, and placed a
band upon his shpulder.
The A. P. A. man spun around,
glowering, while placing his revolver
in his hip pocket.
"Was it loaded with ball cartridge?"
asked the reporter.
"Who are you?" demanded the man,
adding, "I don't want to know you. '
"I am a Journal reporter," exclaimed
the newspaper man, and he repeated
his question.
"Yes, there were bullets there, and
there are more of them," said the man
venemously, "and I can show you If
you like," menacingly putting back his
hand and beginning to draw out his
revolver. But his companions pre
vented this and swept him away, out of
The drum-major, reeling from a fear
ful head blow, started forward onco
more, and the shooter came Into view,
only for a moment, but long enough to
tell the reporter, sulkily, that he had
been struck on the leg so hard that he
had felt impelled to draw and shoot.
When the procession reached the
station and broke up, the members
rallied along the platforms and faced
the mob, which dared not resort to
violence, until just before the train was
going, when several men were struck
by stones and one laid senseless on the
The A. P. A. men charged and the
mob fell back and fled. Taunts were
hurled at the A. P. A. frim a safe dis
tance, and vain attempts were made to
entice individuals into the power uf the
Finally the train was loaded and the
mob came closer to the cars. As the
train moved out and slowly gathered
headway, in every car shades were
pulled down and Bhutters arranged
This soon proved a wise precaution, as
stones struck the sides of the cars. One
of the rear cars was 6truck by a perfect
volley, and several windows were
smashed in by the flying missiles, the
broken glass injuring the travelers.
One stone penetrated through a shutter.
Wild was the excitement on the re
turn journey and vehement the talk.
It was generally stated that if the Con
cord lodge be furthered troubled, the
A. P. A. will turn out in greater force
and with guns.
When the Union station was reached
the first ludicrous scene of the evening
occured. Grown men good naturedly
struggled with one another for the pos
session of pieces of the broken drums
and car panes, as relics of the second
"Concord fight."
Early in the evening it was very plain
to see that some unusual excitement
was abroad. The stores were all closed
but the streets were lined with men.
The cause of the excitement was the
announcement that a newly formed
council of the A. P. A. was to hold a
public meeting in the Town Hall. A
special train was to arrive at 8 o'clock
on the Boston and Maine Railroad from
Boston and stations east of Arlington.
About 7:45 members of the local coun
cil began to arrive at the station and
were jeered and hooted by a crowd of
several hundred.
The council draws its members from
the neighboring towns as well as the
center. The mob were loud in their
threats of violence to the members,
who kept inside the station.
On the arrival of the special with
eight cars and about 1,200 men, the
crowd subsided Into hisses and groans.
The march to tho hall was quiet until
the arrival at the hall, when several
attempts were made by the mob to
strike at the members, some of which
were successful.
The gallery was literally packed with
the town element, who took up their
hisses and calls of "put him out." "A.
P. A.," and "we have no use for you."!
Tbrve of the A. P. As. forced their
way into this crowd to cheer their
friend, but were Immediately ur-
rounded and shut up. But for the In
terrentlon of the police more serious
consequences would have followed.
Several times they had to be warned
from the platform.
One A. P. A. man standing at the
entrance, and hearing some oao saying
"A. P. A.," said, "Why don't you say
it as an American citizen should?"
The fellow turned on him, and said,
"You're no American citizen." The
lie was given and returned. The A
P. A. man drew his revolver, saying,
"I come prepared for such men as you."
He was hustled Into the crowd by his
friends before an officer could arrest
him. Many attempts were made to
hustle the men away from the crowd,
but were all stopped before any dis
tance was attained.
At the close of the meeting the whole
mob rushed for the door and grabbed
stones, bricks and everything in the
mlssle line, and waited for the councils
to come out. The transparency read
ing, "The A. P. A. Has Come to Stay"
and "No Rome Rule for America" was
hardly lighted before a perfect shower
of stones rained on it. When the line
was formed and had hardly marched a
rod, three or four of the mob mado a
rush for the transparency, captured it
and ran for the court house yard. With
almost one accord the whole body of A
P. A. literally swept after them and
recaptured the transparency.
But for the leaders more serious in
jury than sore heads would have re
sulted. Tho 6ldes of the Lowell road,
down which the march was taken, are
lined with low willows, behind which
the mob was hidden and threw their
The A. P. A. men, angered by seeing
their friends hurt, drew revolvers, and
shots were fired. One of the drums of
the band was totally demolished by
stones, and the bass drum had to be
protected by men marching on each
side of it.
Just before reaching the track the
line had to be baited. The mob had
gathered all the old sleepers, sticks of
timber, brush, etc., that they could
find, and piled it across the road. The
advance guard took hold of theobstruo
tlon with a will, and although the
stones were flying thick and fast, soon
cleared it away, uuring ine halt a
part of the mob attacked the rearguard,
and a warm time was witnessed there
At the station the mob was at its
worst. Thinking this to be their last
chance, they assaulted anyone they
could lay hands on. One of the visitors
while talking with one of his friends
was struck on the temple with a large
stone and knocked to the ground. His
friends made a rush for the assailant,
but lost him in the crowd. The mob
divided into groups all along the plat
form, and blows were exchanged right
and left.
One of the A. P. As. drew a revolver
and fired three shots into the bushes
from which tbe stones were coming.
The police were unable to do anything
with the crowd, and they had every
thing their own way. The fifteen min
utes taken in loading up the train was
the liveliest this old town has seen for
a great many years.
At the Bret movement of the train
the rain of bi icks and stones was re
newed with redoubled force.
Although the blinds were all down
tho stones went crashing through the
windows, splintering blinds and injur
ing a number of the passengers. Bricks
four Inches square were found in the
cars, and many were cut by the broken
glass. The mob stool back from the
light of the car windows so that they
could not be distinguished.
The whole movement was a surprise
to all the towns-people. Not until after
noon was it known that the meeting
was to be public, and it was never
dreamed that so large a delegation from
Boston would come. The mob was
composed of the younger, hot-headed
portion of the town, although the gen
eral sentiment of the town is tet against
the order.
The Concord council is young, having
held only three meetings. After each
one this same element has congregated
about the door, taking the names and
hooting the members.
The members say the object of the
meeting was to enlighten the town peo
ple in regard to the workings of the
order and the end for which they are
The business men of the town look
upon it as an exhibition of the strength
of the order, and are very much set
against the idea, as well as the result
of the experiment.
A number of the mob were heard to
say that if they (the A. P. A.) ever
came again they would be prepared for
them, and would know how to use them
in a rougher style.
E. H. Dunbar, supreme surgeant-at
arms of the A. P. A., and its most active
organizer, led the hosts that swept
from Boston across Middlesex coiftity to
Concord, on the line taken by the Brit
ish 119 years before, but by different
methods of conveyance and with differ
ent motives. He is a dark man, with a
strong, live facv-, keen eyes and the
manner of a leader, which last he un
questionably was, for fairly marvelous
was the manner in which he handled
and controlled tho men. 1
Jut-t after he arrived, Mr. Dunbar
was Interviewed by a Journal reporter.
The A. P. A. leader said that he and
his friends came to show the Concord
lHple what the A. P. A. really was.
and to give encouragement to their
Concord brothers. He said that the
meeting was entirely eitolaneous and
that the turnout surprised him. lie
then thought that the meeting would
greatly boom the order.
When the rioting was over and tin;
A. P. A. forces were homeward bound,
a Jimrml man approached Mr. Dunbar
and asked what tbe latter thought of
the stormy scenes of the evening.
"It will give us hundred of new
members It Is bound to strengthen
us. Did you notice that they were the
aggressors? We merely camo out, as
we had a right to do. Did you ever
hear of an Irish Roman Catholic pro
cession being stoned? The blood of the
martyrs is the seed of the church,' the
old saving runs, and I think that you
will find that this attack upon us will
be tho best thing that could have hap
pened fir the spreading of American
Just before 8 o'clock, nearly an hour
before the train bearing the A. P. As.
arrived, a Journal reporter went to the
house of James B. Wood, of the Con
cord board of selectmen, and asked what
precautionary measures had been taken
to keep the p?ace, as all sorts of wild
rumors were flying about.
Mr. Wood was at first somewhat Im
patient in manner, which he later ex
plained by saying that he was fueling
really sick.
He said: "We have put on four spec
ials. If these people will come out and
peaceably go to the hall and hold their
meeting quiet'y, there will bo no
trouble. But if they come out with
bands and hurrahing, and parade
around, there is liable to bo trouble,
and they will be themselves to blame
for it."
La'er Mr, Wood said that ho thought
there would bo no trouble, as he did
not think that tho A. P. A. was coming
as expected.
He said that on Sunday one of the
members applied to him for protection
and that he consulted with tho ofllcors,
and that very afternoon Mr. Craig, the
head cot stable and night watch, had
come to him asking for more assistance,
which had been granted him.
According to the Boston Journal's
story, when the plans for the meeting
were first laid, it was thought that
only a few Boston men would come out,
but late In the afternoon it was learned
that no less than 250 would be in at
tendance, and the large town hall was
engaged and hastily decorafed with
flags and bunting. When the train
load pulled in, the members of the
order In Concord were greatly sur
prised. Every available space in the
entire hall was taken up, even to the
aisles and galleries.
Mr. E. H. Dunbar, the supreme 6er-
geant-at-arms of the A. P. A. was
called to preside, and made a stirring
speech, and was frequently encored by
his audience, and hissed by the hood
lums from the gallery. Some one
yelled "put them out," when the A. P.
As. and their friends arose in mass,
and had it not been for the influence of
Mr. Dunbar the gallery would have no
doubt been cleared. He said, "Let
them stay in, they have much to learn,"
and to the hlssers he remarked, "That
Is not gentlemanly; that Is not Ameri
His speech was followed by one from
Oscar Emerson, president of one of the
Boston councils, and Mr. James Stark,
from Dorchester, and others.
There was also plenty of music, which
added to the enthusiasm of the meeting.
Here are facts which the Boston Cit
izen has gleaned, but which the dailies
have not yet discovered and the towns
people are not aware of.
The leader of the mob was one Dennis
Gleason, a laborer, about 30 years of
age. He was called by the other rioters
"the captain,' (of the mob). He is em
ployed in Murray's grocery store.
The fellow who had the Harvard "H"
on his shirt was John Connors, the son
of a stone mason named Michael Con
nors. John graduated from the high
school last spring, entered Harvard
this fall, but left suddenly for some un
explained reason. He is said to be
quarrelsome, and is designated as a
"tough." He is about 22 years old.
Another of the rioters was John Wal

Railroad. Be Is a son of Michael Wal
