1 GUARDS ROB STRIKERS OF GUNS
Bayonne, N. J., July 24. The situ
ation in the Standard Oil strike here
was tense to the point of breaking to
day. Sheriff Eugene P. Kinkead,
wearied by a hard night's work, ad
mitted it was much like a powder
barrel with a sputtering fuse.
The strikers were aroused almost
to the breaking point by the raid on
their arsenal early today, in which
the sheriff's men captured over fifty
new Springfield rifles and a quantity
of ammunition. They bitterly pro
tested that the guards were allowed
to keep their rifles and do sniping.
Added to the seriousness of the
outlook was the food situation. Most
of the strikers earned from 98 cents
to $2.25 a day for 14 hours' work be
fore they went out They have no
surplus to fall back on.' The shop
keepers have been protesting that
they must have money for -supplies.
Many women pencil their brows to
