Great consternation has been caused by
an order issued which caused 14,000 ma

aa the membership of these professions
in this country Is comprised of the most
Illiterate and dangerous class of people
who would not hesitate to commit crime
in order to accomplish their purpose.
Another alarming phase of the situa
tion is the fact that the Anarchists, who
are strong In numbers here, have aroused
the strikers to frenzy ana are doing all
in their power to create a riot which, if
aiartedV would cause a tremendous loqp
of life and great destruction to property.
The government considers the condition
a foreboding of serious trouble and In or
der to protect -life and public property,
has begun forwarding troops to the
scene of the threatened conflict. It the
troops arrive In time a terrible revolt
may possibly be averted.
