ff attempts" are being made to run with strikebreakers in both places.
In Duluth strikebreakers, striking- workmen and others, have
been shot at, beaten up, arrested and abused.,
In Superior there hasn't been a person injured.
- In Dulut'hjihe city and county authorities listened to the pleas
of the traction company and not only put regular deputy sheriffs
and policemen on the cars, but let the company hire a bunch of Chi-'
cago "detectives" to help guard the cars.
. As in every other strike, it was these "detectives," who really
are nothing but anti-labor thugs and bullies imported to break the
stcike, that started the bloodshed and less serious trouble. '
In Superior Mavor "Silver Toe" Konkel went about it different.
e gave the company police protection, but he refusedr to let the
Chicago "detectives'" ride on Superior cars, and he refused to let the
company's strikebreaking conductors and motormen carry guns. "

BREAKING IT GENTLY
Two very great friends a
Scotchman and an Englishman
met in the smoking 'room of a
hotel, and the Englishman at
onee proceeded to monopolize the
conversation, as he usually did. -The
Scotchman bore it "for a
lonsf time, then he broke in
'11 say, old chap, I'll back you
and me to tell more and bigger
lies in half an hoUr thah-any other
six men I know." -
He paused, and then went on
"And I wouldn't speak a single
word the whole time."
To protect their feet, geese
reared at BulphamEssex, when
driven to the various markets,
are made to walk through sand
and tar, thus forming "shoes."
