PROTECT EXPRESS -WAGONS
There were only a few scattering
attempts made by the strikebound
express companies to carry on busi
ness this morning. The wagons that
did leave the barns were accompa

strikebreaking guards hired through

$80 a month for 12 hours' work a"
day. They want a 10-hour day. The
helpers oh the wagons get $6 a week
for a 12-hour day. I have not talked
to any of the officials except C. E.
