PITCHED BATTLE BETWEEN
STRIKE BREAKERS AND MOB.
SCORE OF PERSONS WOUNDED
Eight Men Receive Bullet Wounds,
Some of Which Will Prove Fatal.
Police Arrest Guards and Disperse
Crowds on the Streets.
San Francisco, May 8. Tho strike
of the 1,700 union motormun and con
ductors of the United Railroads de-
doped Into u riot In which moro than
a ucnro of persons were severely hurt,
homo woie fatally wounded and others
hurt to a leaser extent.
The company mado its first attempt
to resume tho operation of Its system
by sending out seven passenger cars
manned by forty strike breakers wear
ing the uniform of car Inspectors and
each carrying a revolver strapped
around his waist outside of his coat.
The start was made from tho com
pany's harr.s at Turk and Fillnioro
streets, where a crowd of from 3,000
to 5,000 men and boys had gathereo.
Thlrty-flvo policemen, under the
command of Captain Mooney, weic on
patrol guard. The appearance of Clio
cars In Fillmoro street, from which
they were switched Into Turk street,
was the signal for an Immediate out
burst of Jeers and howls. Before tho
cars had gone one block they were
made the targets of stones and bricks.
In a few moments every pane of glass
had been smashed and several of tho
armed operatives had heen struck,
cut nnd bruised. At Turk and Buch
anan streets an especially fierce at
tack was mado on tho fqremodt car.
A guard on the rear platform an
swered tho Hying stones with a pis
tol shot. The bullet struck one of the
union sympathizers in the arm.
This transformed the crowd Into a
wild mob, and thenceforward for
twelve blocks there was fierce fight
ing. The strikers and their friends,
aided by hundreds of youthful hood
lums, kepi up a running shower of
missiles. Tho' guards on board the
cars responded with fusillade after
fusillade of pistol shots.
lCight men received bullet wounds,
some of which will prove fatal.
Among thase thus injured aro a detec
tive sergeant and a patrolman.
Strike Breakers Arrested.
Finally a ckizen or more of tho
guards were arrested by reserves from
the Central police station and a
union crowd boardod tho rearmost car
and started It hack to the barns. Ar
riving there the strikers charge that
revolver tiro was opened on them from
the barns. In this encounter several
moro men were 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 stampede
that followed here, scores of women
nnd children on the outskirts of the
mob in Fillmore street were hurled to
the pavement and trampled upon.
The appearance of relief squads to
reinforce Police Captain Mooney's
men resulted In the partial dispersing
of the crowds.
Following is a list of the Injured at
Central Emergency hospital: Thomas
White, lacerated scalp; James Walsh,
shot In head, will die; Police Officer
Harry Saner, shot through shoulder;
F. Joy, laceration of cheek; J, Kron

for shooting strikers and their sym
pathizers, Chief of Police DInnn said:
'T shall arm the police with rifles.

Thirteen strike breakers were ar
