Some of Which Will Prove Fatal.
Police Arrest Guards and Dloperso
Crowds on the Streets.
San Francisco, May 8. Tho Btrlko
of the 1,700 union motormon and con
ductors of tho United Railroads de
veloped Into a riot In which more than
a scoro of persons were severely hurt,
some wore fatally wounded and others
hurt to a lessor extent.
The company mado Its first attempt
to rotumo the operation of Its system
by sending out seven passenger cars
manned by forty strlko breakers wear
ing the uniform of car Inspectors and
each carrying a revolver strapped
around his waist outside of his coat.
Tho start was made from tho com
pany's bams at Turk and Fillmore
streets, where a crowd of from 3,000
to 5,000 men and boys had gathered.
Thlrty-flvo policemen, under tho
command of Captain Mooney, wero on
patrol guard. The appearanco of Cho
cars In Fillninro street, from which
they wero switched Into Turk street,
was tho signal for an Immediate out
burst of jeers and howls, llefore tho
cars had gone one block they wero
made tho targets of stones and bricks.
In a few moments overy pane of glass
had been smashed and several of tho
armed operatives had been struck,
cut nnd bruised. At Turk and Buch
anan streets an especially fierce at
tack was mado on tho foremost-car.
A guai d on tho roar platform an
swered tho flying stones with a pis
tol shot. The bullet struck one of tho
union sympathizers in the arm.
This transformed the crowd Into a
wild mob, and thenceforward for
twelve blocks there was fierce fight
ing. Tho strikers and their friends,
aided by hundreds of youthful hood
lums, kept up a running shower of
missiles. Tho guards on board tho
cars responded with fusillade after
fusillade of pistol shots.
Eight men received bullet wounds,
some of which will prove fatal.
Among thaso thus Injured aro a detec
tive sergeant and a patrolman.
Strike Breakers Arrested.
Finally a dozen or more of tho
guards wero arrested by reserves from
the Central police station and a
union crowd boarded the rearmost car
and started it back to tho barns. Ar
riving there the strike: s charge that
revolver fire was opened on them from
the barns. In this encounter several
moro men wero shot. A nonunion man
threw tho switch at the corner of
Turk and Fillmore streets and the de
railed car shot Into the sidewalk,
maiming two men. In the stnmpedo
that followed hero, scores of women
and children on the outskirts of tho
mob In Fillmore street wore hurled to
ths pavement and trampled upon.
The appearance of relief squads to
relnforco Police Captain Moonoy's
men resulted in the partial dispersing
of the crowds.

THE GAELIC TONGUE.
Peculiarities of the Language of the
There are In tSnellc no neuter nouns.
They are nil cither nitiHculIno or femi
nine. Sun, moon, ntnr, tree, rock, stoue,
etc., are feminine iiouuh; sky. lrf hlrd,
fish, honse, barn, etc., aro masculine.
A hill Is masculine; a mountain, femi
nine. The ocean Is masculine; the sea
Is feminine. Strange to say, the yord
for "a female" Is a uiaucullne noun
and the word for "u manservant" a i
feminine. Hut these two curious ex
ceptions stand practically alone. I
In the construction of sentences
Gaelic Is very dlffereut from English.
I'eople who know enough about tho
language to make dangerous use of It
will toll you, for lirtance, that In
Gaelic you havo to talk backward. By
this Is meant that you do not begin by
using the samo word that you would
boglu with in English. In 'Gaelic tho
verb comes before tho noun and tho
noun before the adjective. Thus, If
you were going to say "A wise man
shuns evil companions" you would ar
range your words in this order: 'Shuns
a man wise companions evil." This
way of putting tho verb nt tho very
beginning of a sentence Is really bet
ter than having it follow the nouu.
Holng tho word of tho sentence, It
stands In its proper place. To tho
hlghlander English Is the language
that Is spoken backward.

"Oh, yes, sir," the servant said; "it's
