By i:cbinlve Wire from Tin- AAsoelated 1'iewi.
Albany, May 14, When darkness fell
this evening, several thousand weary
street car strikers and sympathizers
went to their houses, but they were re
placed by as many more, who took up
tlie vigil to prevent the United Trac
tion men from running their electrlo
ears with non-union men. The dark
ness brought some confidence . that
there would be no attempt before
morning to move ears, for two attempts
made In broad daylight had brought
bloodshed and riot on such a scale that
tlie local police, aided by scores or dep
uties and Plnkerton men, had been un
able to quell tho disturbance.
One man lies In a hospital seriously
wounded, one of the two ears Ibe com
pany attempted to run is In the gutter
near tho car house, wrecked, and tho
trolley wires are cut in several places,
practically crippling the road. Inside
tin; car house, afraid oven to look out
of the grated windows, are about seventy-five
non-union men, whom tlie
company expects to use in running tho
cars. 15a rly this morning- there were
about liiO of them, but by nightfall
sixty-five had deserted and joined the
ranks of the strikers.
The- men claim that they were
brought here under a misapprehension
and that they supposed they were go
ing to Philadelphia.
This afternoon tlie police practically
admitted that they wore powerless to
take care of the large crowds on the
streets, if cars were run, and General
Manager McNamara immediately called
upon General Oliver, In command of
the Third btlgade, Tor protection. . Hii
said: "Wo intend lo run out cars if It
takes Ihe entire National Guard of
New York slate to protect us."
General Oliver Issued an order as
sembling at their armory tonight the
Tenth battalion of Albany, comprising
four companies of the National Guard
of Infantry, and the Third Signal corps
mounted. General Oliver said that lie
would warn the remainder of the Third
brigade to be in readiness for a call.
