HILLMAN .DISCUSSES POLICE
METHODS FROM" ALL-IN BED
Sidney Hillman's reserve fund of
vitality came to an end last night
Today, from a sick bed in the Hotel
La Salle, he is directing the strike.
Since the struggle" began he has
made an average of six speeches a
day and has never slept more than
six hours a night.
Last night he was near collapse,
His aids hurried him to the hotel and
put him to bed. This morning, after
a 12-hour nap, he said to reporters:
"I feel fine. You'll see me back on
the firing line this afternoon. Let me
know if anything else happens."
In a statement issued last night
Second Deputy Superintendent of
Police Schuettler blames the strik
ers for all the trouble. He tells them
to "obey the law and stop putting
strong arm men on the job."
The chief has no evidence that the
strikers have sluggers. If so he would
have produced it before the council
committee which found the methods
employed by the police in handling
the strike as "unnecessarily brutal."
"This is practically proof that
Schuettler's methods in handling a
strike are wrong," Hillman said. "He
believes in sluggers on the employ
er's side, but not on the union side.
He goes so far as to accuse us of
employing them. Twenty of our peo
ple were arrested for peaceful picket
