his assertions that the first move
toward peace must come from the
railroads or the iabor board.
Except for the disorders at Clin

was confined to clashes between
strike sympathizers and workmen
due to the efforts of the strike sym
pathisers to persuade the employts
still at work to quit.
Missouri, Kansas, Kentucky and
California were among states that
had either assembled troops or were
prepared to do so in case disorders

BOY IS KILLED BY GUAUI)
Two Men Also Wounded in Out
break at Clinton, 111,
CLINTON. III., July 8. (By the
Associated Press.) First trouble in
the railroad shopmen's strike oc
curred here today when a guard em
ployed by the Illinois Central rail
road shot and killed James Fitz
gerald, a 12-year-old boy, wounded
his father, James Fitzgerald Sr., a
striker, by shooting him through the
leg, and wounded a passerby, Elmer
Hanklnson. The latter was shot
through both legs.
It is said the trouble started when
the guard told a number of strike
sympathizers to keep off the right
of way, declaring he would "shoot
the first man who stepped over the
deadline." Fitzgerald, it is claimed,
stepped over, whipped out a pistol
and invited the guard to "begin
The boy died shortly after being
wounded. He was shot through the
right lung. The father and Hankin
son were taken to tha hospital here
Early tonight about 600 strikers
and strike sympathizers were col
lected near the Illinois Central
shops and trouble was expected.
This afternoon they stormed down
town stores in attempts to purchase
firearms. Policemen and deputy
sheriffs were inside the stores aU
tempting to keep the men out but
their efforts were practically futile.
Sheriff Persons sent a telegram to
Lieutenant-Governor Sterling at
Hockford, III., asking for troops.
All men working at the Clinton
shops had deserted their jobB and
the guards stationed at the shops
Anxiety was expressed by many
residents who feared a further out
break before the arrival of the
troops. Feeling was still at fever
pitch and it would not take much,
residents said, to start another out
break. The Clinton shops of the Illinois
Central employed about BOO men be
fore the strike and 4O0 of these
walked out July 1. No strike break
ers were imported by the roads, it
was said, and outside of the hun
dred men or so who remained at
work only a few "drifters" came in
to augment their forces. Between
70 and 75 guards were stationed
about the shops.

SHOP STRIKE CONTINUES
ULTIMATUMS TO WORKMEN
Shops Running, but Largely With
Men Engaged by Companies
Ultimatums to striking shopmen
issued by the various railroad com
panies, it is said, have not had the
expected effect. The strike con
tinues, the majority of the men are
out, and, while' the shops-are run
ning, the men employed, by a big
majority, are those ho have been
hired through advertisements. The
Union Pacific three days ago issued
notice that its men must return to
work by 3 o'clock yesterday after
noon or lose all seniority rights
with the company. A small per
centage of old employes returned
tn their tasks.
The shop forces of the Southern
Pacific, Union Pacific and Spokane,
Portland & Seattle railway were in
creased yesterday to some extent.
The superintendent of the Albina
shops of the O.-W. -R. N. Co. re
ported that from 30 to 40 rrien were
being put to work in the shops dally
and that ;within a short time the
forces, . though composed of non
union men, would be back to a nor
mal basis. The Southern Pacific
continued to .hire men, as did the
Spokane, Portland & Seattle.
The union leaders contend that
they are causing the railroads much
worry and that trains are being Re
layed on all lines. This has been
branded as "propaganda" by rail
road officials. v
Pickets are stationed at all shops
and they are going about their tasks
peacefully and not attempting to
cause trouble. The unions have cau
tioned the men to refrain from
starting trouble with the men re
cently hired or with those who con
tinued at their jobs in the shops.
Three Kail Guards Quit.
LA GRANDE, Or.. July 8. (Spe
cial.) Only three of the 75 guards
at the O. W. R. & N. shops here quit
as a result of the order yesterday
prohibiting them from carrying
weapons. A "no help wanted" sign
has also been hung out at the rail
road special agent's office, al
though earlier in the week it
was announced that 150 guards
were wanted. The strikers re
ported two men returning .. to
work today and one additional man
quitting. Figures on the number of
men at work in the shops were not
announced by railroad officials. W.
Bollins, superintendent, stated that
announcements of the strikers were
