Day Book that Teamsters' Joint
Council No. 25 -has investigated the
charge that Mr. Sweitzer drove a
team for Farwell diiring the team
sjters' strike in 1905, and they fiiid
the charge isn't true. I have seen

for Farwell & Co. for four days dur
ing the strike, driving a double team
and cdvered wagon, and that Robt.
M. Sweitzer came to the warehouse
and relieved Hblt and drove it that
day. The other is signed and sworn
to by Chas. Wesley Webb, 3838 Hon
are st., who says he worked for the
American Express Co. in June, 1905,
and had to pick up express from Far
well & Co., and that during tjie
trouble he saw Sweitzer come in with
a wagon on several occasions.
These affidavits are available if the
officers of the teamsters' union want
to see them and care to make any
further investigation. The addresses

in this letter. I send my name and
address to The Day Book. H. B. M.
