Railroads to Mak Great Effort to
Catch Up With Traffic.
Chicago, May 10. American rail
ways will spend during the present year
nearly $1,000,000,000 inan extraordi
nary effort to eecure sufficient equip
ment in which tc tiansport the tralfic
of the country, sutlicient power to keep
that equipment moving, and sufficient
rails for both the equipment .and the
power to run on.
It is estimated that, if, the manufac
turers are equal to the test, between
340,000 and 350,000 freight cars will
be added to the tctal equipment of the
railways of the United States, fully
5,000 passenger coaches will be built
and over 6,000 locomotives will be
added to the steam power which is now
available to the railroads. These fig
ures mean that every shop and every
plant where these utensils of commerce
are manufactured must run day and
night in the United States, in Canada
and in Mexico, and that some of the
steel mills in other lands will get a
substantial reflex of this prosperity.

repented fusillades of bullets from
strikebreakers yesterday marked the
first attempt to run cars on the 1'iiitod
KalliondH since the strike lgan. The

Having thus made a test, tho com
mny at 2:30 p. m. sent a string of
seven passenger cars out of the Fink
sod Fillmore street barns, manned by
armed strike breakers. Their appear
ancn was the signal for renewed rioting.
Brickbats, paving stones and all man
ner of missies were burled lit tho cars
by a pursuing niob of several thousand.
One of tho guards on the cars retaliated
with a shot, which hit its mark. The
assault on the cars Uviime mom furious
and tho guard retaliated with several
fiiMllades, which caused the dentil of
one man, wounded one fatally and 12
less seriously. After running a few
blm ks the cars were returned to the
Imru and the attempt to cratu the
line was abandoned for the day.
I'nion picktta went among the niob,
Imploring them not to throw stones.
Ihcy were jeered by union men and
sympathizers. Tho police with one
exceplicn did not even draw their cluls.
The jxilice did ' little to check the
lawlessness. They attempted to dis
suade the mob from violence, but only
two of them used force and they did It
so effivtively that they cleared tho way
for the cars for the time U ing. The
police ariested 13 of the strikebnakers
for shooting, but mode no arrests
among the mob.
That the many bloody events of yes-terd.-t-
