The 53 other cases of "unlawful as
sembly" will be stricken off Judge
Graham's court calendar in a day or
two. There are 661 cases of "dis
orderly conduct" expected to go the
same way in December.
The Day Book reporter got this off
his chest when the farce was over:
Let's have a song of the ivory dome
And the head where there's nobody
home.
Make us-a. line on the high-up cop,
The bone-headed guy who sits on
top,
Who orders this and who orders that
From the empty flat right under his
hat
Give us a song of the ivory dame
And the head where there's nobodj
home.
A SUGGESTION
A fight good job for crazy folks,
With belfries full of bats,
Would be designing opera cloaks
And women's winter hats.

MAYOR REFUSES TO LEND A
HAND IN STRIKE TROUBLE
Mayor Thompson today absolutely
refused to lend a helping hand in the
striking garment workers' situation.
He said nix on taking part in any
sort of arbitration proceedings.
His stand was put very plainly to
a committee headed by Jane Addams
and composed of Rev. John Timothy
Stone, Rev. Myron Adams, Former
Judge E. O. Brown and Miss Grace
Abbott of the Immigrants' Protec
tive league.
"Let the strikers go home and stay
a week and behave themselves," the
mayor told the committee as soon as
the interview opened. "Then I will
sit in and hear the differences."
"But in the meantime they will
lose the strike," replied Jane Ad
dams. "I'll have nothing to do with this
affair until the strikers go home and
behave themselves," -repeated the
mayor.
A committee representing the
United Garment Workers' union had
Seen invited in by the mayor so, as
he explained it, he "could get both
sides of the story." Wm. 0. Thomp
son, former attorney for the indus
trial relations commission, looked
the United Garment Workers' com
mittee over and said: "They are here
merely to cloud the issue." Later
Thompson said, "And they have suc
ceeded in doing so."
The session was confined to argu
ment over the differences of the two
unions, the United Garment Work
ers and the Amalgamated Clothing
Workers, as much as possible, by
Geo. Slater, business agent of the
former body.
All sorts of appeals were made to
the mayor by Miss Addams and Miss
Abbott The former pointed out the
hardships that were being heaped on
the girl strikers. The latter said that
17 per cent of the girl workers were
being paid less than $4 per week, and
50 per cent less than $5 per week.
"These girls jare, near the bone
