That the words of the commanding
officer have had at loast a tomporary
effect was shown this morning whon
troops escorted sovtfral hundred non

lested In any way. Two companies
went out at daybreak with their guns
loadod and their best marksmen on
their flank When the soldiers pass-
ed the crowds of strikers on tho
street they deliberately tuined tholr
backs to them Howover tho.ro waB
no hooting or Jeering.
Supplementing his order of last

Major Gearhtvrt In command hero to
arrest all women and girls who Insult
tho troops In any way. Tho oplnon
seems to prevail among offlcors and
