Tlie Railway Magnates Win.
New Yoek, Jan. 23. The great
Brooklyn car strike is virturally
over, but the disorderly clement i
not subdued. Many mohpmen.
and conductors who left wotk two
weeks ago were seeking to regain
their positions today. There was
a serious conflict between the
strikers and police. The police
used revolvers for the first time as
if they meant business. One of
the disoiderly men- was shot and
wounded so seriously that his
death is expected. There ( was a
considerable amount of car.stoning
and window breaking and a few
'wires' cut. The police made a
number of arrests. There is some
probability the difficulty will be
settled on the old terms, viz; two
dollars per day for motormcn and
and conductors having full day
cars, and not less, than $1.50 for
those running trippers. , "; "
