VOL. LXXV. OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA,. WEDNESDAY EVENING. AUGUST 16,, 1911. NO. 177 MEM TO worn: t. BRITISH EMPIRE IN COILS ! OF GREAT LABOR DISPUTE Government Ready to Declare Martial Law and Dre Fear Pervades All Classes LONDON, Aug. 16. The ultimatum of the railway men's societies demanding: that their employers meet them in conference for the considera tion of grievances, will expire at 8 o'clock tomorrow morning, when the strike on all the railways In the ..United Kingdom is scheduled to be come effective. Up to tills evening the managers had. not indicated a purpose to meet the wishes of the strike lead ers. Sir James Inglis, manager of the Great Western Railway, said: "We would rather close down the whole system." Four societies Joined in the ultimatum, including the Associated So cieties of Iiocomotive Engineers . and Firemen with a membership of about 20,000. The total membership of the four societies is about 100,000 and it is supposed that 70,000 other railroad men are- unionists. The total number of men employed on the twenty-seven principal rail roads Is 460,000. A majority of the skilled laborers are union men.. In the event of a strike the leaders hope to have the support of the unions of railway clerks and. railway telegraphers. The unions have funds amount ing to $3,105,000 and claim to have made arrangements by wiiioii tney can disburse eight weeks' strike pay. LONDON. Aug. 16. The railroad men at various centers today notiried their superiors of their determination not to handle trains employed in conveying soldiers and police through-the Btrike areas. A report is current that the government may respond with a proclama tion of martial law on all railways and replacing the strikers with men from the royal engineers army service corps. ; LONDON. Aug. 16. There was lit : tie if any abatement today of the i strike fever which has spread through Great Britain. At some points, such as the London docks, conditions con- tinued to improve.. but this was offset : by outbreaks elsewhere, f With the exception of Liverpool, I where there was rioting, nearly all ; the men generally were orderly and ' beyond picketing and peaceably in- ducing themen to join the unions, did not interfere with those desiring to work. The fighting last night at Liverpool, ; which resulted in th death of - two ' Hussars who were . defending five 4 prison vans occupied by riot prisoners ; whom the strikers attempted unsuc-cessfully to release, has not tended thus far to improve the situation ex- i cept as it has helped to keep the . peaceably disposed outside the strike j area. This enabled the police more ' easily to handle those who were caus- lng trouble. This was' particularly noticeable to-I day when the streets were quiet, the i Tioters having retired for rest after the night's battle, and also probably ' to keep out of the way of the strong f forces opposed to them during day-' light. The police and soldiers, how-- ever, prepared for a renewal of hos-! tilitles when night fell. DOCKS ARE IDLE. v Teams were busy today removing goods from the railway stations to ' business houses. They were unmolested. Along the docks, however, work was at a standstill. The continued rioting at Mesey Port was not calculated to restore confidence else-; where and men "at other ports were I'Tef using to discharge steamers dill verted from Liverpool. Glasgow, for i! example, which had Just disposed of ' a street railway strike, now has a i'dock strike, the men declining to re-ij'move, a cargo of fruit from a steamer sent, from the Mersey. Another omi-, nous situation was the choice of Liv-j erpool by the leaders of the railway t workers as the city from which to direct the threatened general strike on i the railways, declared last 'night bythe ! executive of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants, the Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen' i and " the General Railway Workers' Union, to become effective within 24 IN OAKLAND. 1915 !

KLERKS CONVENTION hours unless in the interim the company expresses a willingness to negotiate for a settlement of grievances. Heretofore the railway strikes have been managed usually from London or some central point in the north. FEAR RAILWAY TIE-UP. The threat to tie up all the railway lines in the United Kingdom caused more uneasiness than all the other strike movement combined, for it was known that if the effort was successful, it would completely cut off food supplies from the greater part of the country. K TheVgevernment exerted every influence to avert- .such calamity. Sydried Brayton, president of the oard of trade conferred today with the managers" of all the railroad lines, and later met the leaders of the employes in the hope of bringing about a Joint conference. 170,000 MORE MAY STRIKE. Should the railway strike take place the managers hope to maintain a partial service on all lines and for months have been preparing for such an eventuality. They already have made up time tables for a curtailed service with the aid of non-union men who compose about three-fourths of the workers. The unions have about 170,000 members. . The residents of many of the poorer t districts already are suffering from prolonged- Idleness and in ' some sections ofLondon and the other-large cities where the husbands and wives equally contribute to the suport of their homes, both are on strike and dependent on charity for food. The trade of Manchester has been completely- dislocated by the strike in the transport service. Signal men Joined the strikers today, preventing the movement of trains. The striking freight handlers at Birmingham returned to work today. There appeared. to be no danger of a resumption of the dock strike at London. Smaller strikes in various industries throughout the country have caused, the greatest suffering, as the poorest ' class is engaged in these employments and a few days without work means they must go hungry. . SOCIALISTS ATTACK MOVEMENT. George Landsbury, the Socialist, member for Bow and Bromley division of Tower hamlet who wants to drive the government from power and impeach the ministers because they called out the troops to suppress strike rioting, created a scene in the House of -Commons thi safternoon by accusing the supporters of the policy of utilizing the troops and countenancing the "butchery of the inocents." T never saw such a bloodthirsty Gang," he shouted across the House and was proceeding to denounce Home Secretary Churchill when he - was sharply ' called to order by Speaker Lowther. j Mr. Churchill Informed the House that non-unionists were entitled, by law to work, without molestation and as far as ; it was in the power of the police they would be protected in the exercise of that right. After the railway managers held a' second conference with the board of trade pfflcial3, this statement was issued: "The government having assured the railroad companies, that they would give them ample . protection to enable them to carry on their service the . railroad - companies are prepared, even in the ' event of a general strike, to give an effective. If re-strictd service." . . - . -i ARRESTED FOR WIFE BEATING. ST. LOUIS..

MORE MEMBERS MEXICAN LINE PUT UNDER PATROL Fear of Trouble in Southern California CausesHJncIe Sam to Act. Cavalry Guard is Interpreted Favorably By Latin Officials Along Border. WASHINGTON", Aug. 16. Because of threatened trouble in Lower California, incident? to the Mexican government's effdeavors to quell disturbances there, a troop of United States cavalry will -be ordered to the frontier today to patrol the border from Yuma, Ariz., to San Diego, Cal. SAN DIBGO, Aug. . 16. That the Mexican government Is preparing to prevent trouble in Lower California from now until after the presidential elections m October and that the United States government evidently Is to do all in its power to prevent vlolatiqns of neutrality is stated by Dr. J. Diaz Prleto, Mexican consul in San Diego. Dr. Prieto was shown a dispatch from Washington regarding the sending of caalry to patrol the line from San Diego to Turaa. After reading it he made the following statement: - "It is . Just a precaution being taken by the United States to prevent conditions which existed in the late revolution," said Dr. Prieto this morning. "With the national elections less than two months off the enemies . of Mexico will probably make every effort to cause trouble. The Mexican gunboat Guerrero is now at Manzanlllo, taking on soldiers who will be brought to Ensenada and distributed throughout Lower California as fast as possible. RURALS COMING. , Within the next few days a large number of rural will arrive in San Diego from the State of Sonora, These men, skilled In 1 the work of patroling the border and trained to preserve order. will add greater strength to the soldiers now stationed on the peninsula. . So, you see, i. the Mexican government has been anticipating conditions of unrest and is prepared to maintain order. "With the coming of American soldiers and warships we need have no fear of further trouble from adventurers who would bring arms and ammunition from your country ' to carry on a . revolution in Mexican territory. Telephone messages from Campo, Ja- cumba Springs and Tecate, points on the American side of the international boundary line are to the effect that condi tions are quiet. In spite of this, however, the. refugees at all three places refuse to go . back to their ranches below the line.

MAN AND IWIFESINsCELLS: I ODD MUDDLE OVER JEWEL MR. and MRS. JOHN CROMARTY, Who Have Been Arrested on an Embezzlement Charge. Friendship of GeorgeJ Kaness for Mrs. Cromarty Leads to Charge of Embezzlement 1 Felony' embezzlement charges were this morning lodged against John II. Cromarty, -formerly of the United States revenue cutter service, and-his wife, Mrs. Charlotte Cromarty, on the complaint of George W. Kaness, master-at-arms on the United States Ship Torktown, now at Mare Island. The charge Involves a $300 diamond ring, which Kaness alleges he loaned to Mrs. Cromarty, and which Cromarty admits he sold with his wife's consent. The police have been searching for the Cromatry couple for the past three or four, weeks, and last evening Patrolman A. B. Smith located them In a Washington street hotel. They were placed in detinue, and -when Cromarty was confronted by Captain J. F. Lynch with specimens of his handwriting taken from the pawnshop, records; he confessed to having sold the ring for $90. The ring was recovered today, and Cromarty and his wife will be arraigned 'on the felony charge In the local police court tomorrow . morning, Master-at-arms Kaness having been granted an extension of turlough to appear in court. COMPLICATED AFFAIR. Behind the story of the solitaire diamond .ring Is a situation which the police have made no attempt to investigate. , Mrs. Cromarty, who was Miss Charlotte Hastings, is a pretty brunette, of thtf petite type. Apparently Kaness, who - is a - married man, knew little of Cromarty, while he. was sufficiently ' friendly, with Mrs.' Cromarty to. let her wear his $300 diamond ring, and it Is inferred from the statements made by Cromarty that he gave her other presents. Kaness, who has been with the navy for some years, visited the Cromarty apartments at 829 -Jackson street in this city on several occasions when he was ashore. The last time he visited Unruly Steward Riddles Air With Lead When Room Is Entered By Police. ' SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. IS.

OFFICERS CHARGE BULLET SHOWER the Jackson street apartments Mrs. Cromarty was not well. She .admired the large diamond ring he was wearing, and . Kaness. asked her if she would like to, wear it for a few days. When he returned a few days later the couple had decamped. Kaness immediately notified the police, and a few weeks later the ring was located by Inspectors Drew and Quigley in sL local pawnshop. , -It was not until last night, however, that the couple 'was found in a Washington street hotel and placed in the city prison. , GOT RING FROM WIFE. Kaness was brought from Mare island and confronted Cromarty with the evidence. After telling various stories, Cromarty broke down and admitted that he had received the ring from his wife, and that he had taken it the ; night he received it from her and sold iU "giving the name of "John Luther," to the proprietor of the store at which he disposed of it. Cromarty declared that he had been in the United" States revenue cutter service, and had been a railroad man. He declared that he had never been In trouble before, and Mrs. Cromarty confirmed this statement. The police believe - that this is the only offense committed by the couple. Kaness swore out . warrants' charging Cromarty and his wife jointly with felony embezzlement this morning, the warrants being Issued by Prosecuting Attorney Ezra Decoto. Inspector William Kyle has made an investigation of the case and assisted in obtaining the confession.- ' . t . Mrs. Cromarty is In a serious condition as a result of the nervous strain through which she has passed in the past few hours, and a nervous collapse Is feared. It is possible that after the arraignment tomorrow she will be released under a small bond if this can be furnished, pending the preliminary examination.
