a bunch of sluggers to drive you out."
Healy made-no reply.
He also was in Ignorance of the
-fact called to his attention by Mary
MacDowell that 60 per cent of the
strikers are women and police are
making no exception in their cases.
Union officials are-also indignant
at the attitude of the trust press in
handling the strike.
"All we asked was an even break,"
Frank Rosenblum told a Day Book
reporter, "but the misrepresentations
in the trust press are becoming so
brazen that even the pessimistic of
our strikers know that the papers lie.
"Here is a list printed in the Trib
une this morning. It gives the Royal
Tailors 2,500 employes with only 500
on strike. They do not employ more
than 1,000 and there are 900 out.
Progress Tailoring is given 630 with
30 out. They have about 150 alto
gether and they are all out. Alfred
Decker & Cohn are given as having
1,200 with 200 out They have 1,000
with 900 out Lamm is given 2,000
with400 out They have 1,000 and
990 out Hirsh-Wickwire are given
as 1,000 with 200 out. They have
about 800 downtown, who are all out,
and there are about 100 still working
on the Southwest Side. Meyer they
give 200 with 40 out They have 200

and are all out B. Kuppenheimer r
they give wltn z.ouu ana none out.
They have 2,200 and there are about
300 who have not yet come out, but
will come today.
"In the matter of police brutality
it is the same. They try to make the
public believe this strike is marked
with rioting, but they say nothing
about police tactics. Men are not
permitted to walk on Market st. off
Van Buren. Sluggers are stationed
every few feet outside of some plants.
There are sluggers almost every ten
feet outside of the Royal Tailors.
"Thfiv also eive the usual boss done
about the workers going back. That
isn't true in a single instance. Our j
people are not considering this a hol
iday. It's fight to the finish. We
have 90 per cent of the workers out
now and they are coming out con
stantly." A group of strikers, singing and
cheering, walked past the tailoring
shop of John Sokolowsky at 1634 W.
North av. last night Sokolosky kept
looking anxiously at his group of em
ployes who have not yet walked out
When some of them became restless
he asked the police to get rid of the
strikers. The police detailed at his
shops went out on the sidewalks and
used their clubs to scatter the crowd, v
Several mounted men rode out of a
side street and up on the sidewalk.
The crowd laughed as it ran. So
kolowsky became mad. He took his
gun and went out 6n the street and
fired into the crowd.
Befoi the police could take the
gun away from him he had shot Sam
Lerner, a striking presser of Kup
penheimer's vest shop, in the right
leg. Lerner was taken to the hos
pital and Sokolowsky was arrested.
