Probable That The State Mi
litia Will Be Called
Out.
Indianapolis, 'Ind., Nov. 6.
An effort to resume street car
traffic which has- been tied up
since Friday night by a strike,
resulted today in the serious
injury of seven strikebreakers
and two policemen and the des
truction of a car. A crowd of
several thousand persons, many
of them armed with bricks, sur
rounded the car and prevented
progress while a downpour of
missiles from the roofs and win
dows of buildings along the route
threatened the lives of the strike
breakers and police. ,
Indications tonight were that
the militia would be called out
tomorrow. A, committee of the
civic and commercial organiza
tions presented a request to Gov
ernor Ralston asking for troops
and stating the organizations
would share the responsibility
for the action.
While Governor Ralston would
not state what action he would
take, he intimated that his reason
for not calling the troops at once
was that they could not be mobil
ized before tomorrow morning and
that he feared the announcement
that the militia had been called
out for tomorrow would result
in a night of lawlessness.
The strike breakers injured in
today's rioting who are able to
gravel returned 'to Chicago to
night, i
A number of strike sympathiz
ers went back to the wrecked car
later in the day to rejnove it
from the tracks and to block
further traffic on the line. They
were dispersed when a riot call
brought fifty policemen to the
scene. Another death due to .the
strike resulted when Thomas Carl
ton, who was shot at the Louisi
anna street barn riot, died to
day.

New Haven, Nov. 8. Overcome by
the thought that she must now live
within sight of he yard where she

sie Wakefield was today taken in a
state of collapse from the county jail
to the death cell in the State prison
at Wethersfield.
She became hysterical this morning
when told that she was to be moved.
"I am so frightened!" she sobbed.
"Thye are kind to me here. I am

Miss Emily Picrson, State organizer

said:
There is no plank in our platform

Can Will be Operated After Twenty
four Hour All Old Employes
Return To Work.
Indianapolis Ind. Nov. 8. The
strike of the employes of the Indian
apolis Traction A Terminal Company
was settled late today through the ef
forts of Governor Samuel M. Ralston.
The employes won their demand for
arbitration but nothing is said about
recognition of the Union or terms of
settlement.
Street car service is to be resumed
within 24 hours, according to the
terms of the settlement which also
provides against any further interfer
ence with the operation of the cars.
All the men who were in the employ
of the company Friday night, Oc
tober 31st, when the strike was -called,
and all employes who had been
discharged on account of joining the
union are to be reinstated by the
company with full seniority rights
and without prejudice. The company,
however, is not compelled to reinstate
men who engaged in violence during
the strike. ,
Disputes and grievances as to wag
es, hours and conditions of service
will be referred to the utilities com
mission for arbitration if the company
and employes fail to reach an
agreement within ten days. The com
pany must take up these grievances
with its empolyes within five days af
ter the resumption of service. The.
utilities commission by the terms of
settlement, . must' render a decision
which shall be binding on all parties
interested for three years and shall
relate back to the resumption of work
within 30 days from the date of the
first hearing.
In addition to union and traction
company officers, the agreement was
igncd by Ethelbert Stewart, repre
senting the Federal government, and
overnor Ralston of the State.
The settlement of the strike means
at the 2,000 members of the Indi-
na National Guard called to India
polis yesterday by the Governor, for
trike duty, will be dispatched to the
ome stations as soon as possible.
The strike began a week ago to-
ight and has resulted in four deaths
and injuries to a hundred or more
persons, including several police offi
cers. Until yesterday, wnen tne city
quieted down, the downtown streets
have been the scenes of almost con
tinuous rioting and much damage has
been done to street railway property.
Union officials declare that, while
disappointed in not obtaining, recog
nition of the union, they obtained
their main contentoin, arbitration of
all disputes. The railroad company
asserts it won in its fight not to rec
ognize the union.
Credit for settlement of the strike
is given to Governor Ralston, who has
been untiring in his efforts to bring
the company and its eljiployes togcth

De-
(Special to the Journal.)
Charlotte, Nov. 9. There will be
held at Charlotte, North Carolina,
November 18th and 19th the Annual
Convention of the North Carolina
Drainage Association. Since the or
ganization of this association in .''1909
and the passage of the General Drain
age Act of the State, about 70 drain
age districts have been- startedi'ft.'dsy
these 41 have been completed, reps
resenting an area of 417, 900 acres of
swamp land. About 60,000 acres are now
being drained and 91,000 acres petition
ed for, covering 23 counties of the
Costal Plain region. Drainage Dis
tricts have been organized in Piedmont
and Western North Carolina in 16
counties representing a total area of
52,471 acres of overflowed land. From
data which has been collected it ap
pears that the drainage of these lands
has enormously increased their agri
cultural value, and the money value
of these lands has increased from
$10 to 1150 per acre, with an estimated
average value of $65,00. This will
give an aggregate increase off land
values for these acres, many of which
before draining yielded no returns
whatever, of $40,000,000; and increases
the general healthfulness of these
sections from 75 per cent, to 100 per
cent.
At this Convention there will be
addresses from prominent speakers
and engineers will be present, who will
be in a position to -give information
of practical value to those who are
interested in the formation of drainage
districts. Everyone in this form
of conservation not only from the stand
point of increased land values but in
the conservation of public health,
is most cordially invited to attend the
sessions of the Convention, and will
be considered as delegates.
There wilt be a discussion of the
North Carolina Drainage law, and
recommendations made as to any chan
ges in it, which will help to promote
the drainage work of the State.
WOODROW PLACE WILL BE BE
NEFITTED. The $15,000.00 recentlifcsiiiopnated
by Congress to rebuild nd improve
National avenue should make it one
of the very best boulevards in the State
snd one which the citizens of New
Bern would delight in driving over
and showing to their friends from a
distance. It goes without saying that
property along National, avenue and in
close proximity to it, will feel the effect
of this improvement i4 sufcstiantial
increase in value, in fan, it is already
advancing in price in anticipation
of the improvements soon to be made.
It is a safe guess that Woodrow Place,
New Bern's new residential suburb,
which is located near the end of Nation
al Avenue, will also share in the general
increase in values. Adv.
