they quit, leaving Ihe hotel helploss for

decided to strike last night. They were threatened witli
violence if they did not do so, and were afraid. Such
action is unjust to the public and to all employers and em
Full protection will be accorded them if they return,
and the management will re-employ them all if they make
applications as individuals to the Head Waiter within
24 hours. We shall not employ strife breakers.
The McAlpin waiters were satisfied. They made
absolutely no requests or demands of their employers
in any manner: nor have the professional agitators. The
strike was called without warning.
We apologize to the public for the inconvenience
to which they may have been subjected, and trust to
speedily re-establish normal conditions.
