nice young girls you would-not 66
We stayed and watched for scabs
and saw one coming quite a distance
up the road, with his lunch inside his
coat. We ran to catchhira, but the
scab-ladies hollered and he ran off.
We went up the street to wait lor
him, but the auto followed us. We
took a lunch and threw it in the faces
of the two scabs, John Spreitzer and
Joseph Geshell. We jumped at them
and fought with them. One of them
said: "God damn you, I'll smash
your head in." One ran away and
the other went in the auto.
I caught the latter by the coat and
pulled so hard that I am sure I tored
it. Then they pulled one of the ladies
in the automobile and I pulled her
out. Then we went back of the au
tomobile and I lifted her up to pull
the shah's hnir hut the antn "went nff.
'" Three other ladies who had gone
to another corner to watch the scabs
were met by some deputies and they
took two or them to jail, but the
o'ther ran away and came to tell us
what had happened. We went and
asked a soldier, who was watching
about them and he said he would see.
He went in and sent another soldier
out who pulled his bayonet, put it in
front of him and came toward me,
touched me with it and thinking he
cut my coat, I looked, but seeing' he
had not I said: "Oh, it is not sharp."
.. We then went away and up the
street where we met two of the fat
test soldiers I ever saw and asked
them about the two ladies and told
them that if they did not get the
ladies out they could put us in too.
One said he had nothing to do with
it, and the other said he would see
Then they asked us why we were
Jfighting with the law. We told them
we were not fighting with the law,
but for our bread. He said something
about the governor and I told him
that if the governor was a Socialist
we would not have to fight this long.
We told them" that 'the working
men keep the capitalists up and if the
working men were not here they
would not be walkingaround. We
told them to look and see if the
miners were as fat as they were.
They did not like this, and said: "Do
you think you will win this fight?
We are not up here for you but to gt
put the strikers back to work." I $
said: "Do you think two or three
dozen scabs will break this strike, I
will be on the street till they win."
The officer said they would stay all
winter. We told them to stay more
if they wished, we would keep on. -
