and Is Pleased With
Strike Story.
[Special to The Times-Dispatch, |
Albany. N. Y.. January 4.?Thla ra an
echo of the textile strike at Little
Falls, and George R. Lann, Socialist
Mayor of .Srheaectady. toW the story
to-niguit. as he left the big- executive
chamber, where he had called on Gov?
ernor .Sulzer:
"I Just came down to congratulate
the Governor on his stand for free
speech," said Mayor L?ne, "'and he
told'me the best thing about the Little
Kails strike I have heard yet. I only
wish I had known it earlier.
"Do you know that Governor Sulzer
came near be?jig arrested Just as 1
was? He was on his campaign trip
through the State, and had read of
my arrest for trying; to speak to the
\ people. So when he got to Little
i Falls he had his tratti stopped and
went over to the little park in front
of tiie mills. ife asked somebody ?
[ where I stood when I was arrested for
speaking to the people, and he hail ;*
bendi pulled up to the very spot anil
made an address.
"The people gathered oulckly. So
did the police. Then the factory win?
dows opened and some one yelled, 'Why
don't > ou arrest him as you did Mayor
Lunn? He's speak'ing. too.'"
"But Mr. Sulzer finished the speech,
and he told the people nobody had any
right to stop him or any one else.
" 'Dusty' Ieong. the Chief of Police,
was right there, and heard it, and it
was too much for him."
"Better call the Governor as a wit?
ness when your trials come off." sug?
gested a listener.
'?He'd come If I did," replied Mayor
Lunn. "but just now I'm more con?
cerned about the poor people under
arrest up there than I am for myself.
I don't want to see them railroaded,
for they did nothing to warrant their
arrest."
