Cleveland, July 6. The strike at

has reaobed a point where the authori
ties, as well as tbe strikers, are in no
mood for trifling. When the non
union men left the works at 6 o'clock
this afternoon, there was rioting.
Two hundred and fifty polioe emerged
from tbe gates guarding COO workmen.
An immense orowd bad gathered a

soon overtaking the marohing column,
hooting and yelling. A huge moving
van was in the rear tilled with strikers,
and with it a small wagon, laden with
empty beer bottles. The polioe sus
pected that the bottles were intended
as missies, and oompelled the driver of
the wagon to tarn baok.
At Wilson and Euclid avenues, a
railroad train blocked the way, and
an euort was made to arive tne van
of the strikers through the guard of
police. The officers dragged tbe
driver, Fred W. Hearn, a moving oon
traotor, to the ground, and also the
man on tbe seat beside him, W. J.
O'Neill, a paving oon traotor. These
men resisted, and the polioe used their
clubs on them with such effect that
their heads were soon swollen masses
of outs. One man's ankle was brokon.
The strikers in the van jumped out,
and tbe police charged the orowd.
Frank Coopenhecker, a machinist re
turning from work, and not a striker,
I was caught in the crowd and severely
j olubbed on the head. Hoarn was ar-
i rested and looked up. The strikers
! were dispersed by the onslaught of the
! police, and the nonunion men were
j sent home.
I Meanwhile, a tragedy had taken
iplaoe at tbe Brown works. Albert
Saunders, a young student at the case

miiiiiiiii in Miimitrii running, nuuan latum
working for tbe Brown oompany dur
l ing vacation for tbe practical knowl
i edge it would give him. He did not
leave with tbe nonunion men, under
I polioe guard, bnt mounted his bicycle
j aud sought to reach home alone. As
j he turned up Hamilton street, a knot
: of strikers saw him and shouted to him
j to stop. He did not obey, and they
; began to throw Btones and bricks at
him. A brick struck bim on the head,
and knooked him off his wheel, and
he olaiins that after he was down, tbey
continued to stone him. Rising to his
knees, he drew bis revolver ana fired.
Tbe ball missed his assailants, sped
across a vaoant lot and buried itself in
the breast of William Rettger, one of
tne BCriker8 who was.walking through
an alley with several companions.
Rettger was sent to the hospital, where
he died in a few minutes. He was a
single man. 25 years old, boarding on
Hoadley street, and waa a brother of
Pitcher Rettger, of the Milwaukee
buseball olub.
Patrolman Gibbous heard the shot
fired, and, rushing up, seized young
Saunders, and hurried him into the
office of the Bishop-Babcock Company.
In a wonderfully short space of time, a
furious mob packed the streets as far
as the eye could reach aud surged
against the front of the office demand
ing that Saunders be given up to it.
Some one brought a rope, and tbe cry
to lynoh him was raised.
A few began to pry at the windows
Two patrol wagon loads of police ar
rived and a guurd was posted in front
of the building. Long before this,
Mayor McKissen, Police Director Ab
bott, Lintenaut-Colouel Whitney, of
the Fifth regiment, and others were
gathered for consultation in this city.
Word of the oritical condition of
affairs was telephoned from the Bishop
Babcock office, and request made for
the militia. The mayor respoudod by
nets. Several men and boys were
; wounded slightly by the soldiers.
The guards formed in front of the
offlce, and just then company F was
seen alighting from street cars a block
away. Amid the frenzy of excitement
on the part of the dense crowd, a pa
trol wagon was backed to tbe door of
the office, and Saunders was jerked
into it and made to lie on the bottom.
The guards formed around it, with bay
onets at "charge," and forced their
way down Hamilton street, part of the
