good people of our Newberry city
had arranged and carried out for the
pleasure of the public at large. He
staved in the citv until about eleven

dinner and spend a few hours with
his daughter. When he arrived he
told her that he had a pain in his

rest. His daughter gave him an aspirin
tablet and in a short while he
told her he was feeling better. She
prepared dinner and at one o'clock
they ate. He ate a hearty dinner and
told his daughter how he enjoyed
her good dinner. He again lay down

was not long before his daughter
heard him breathe in a strangling
way and she and her husband hurried
to the bed. raised him up, and in a
few minutes he died in their arms.

BOY KILLED AT CLINTON, ILL.,
Father of Slain Lad Suffers Wounds
in Bo.'th Legs?Troop* Called
Clinton, 111., July 8.?First trouble
in the railroad shopmen's strike occurred
here today when a guard, employed
by the Illinois Central railroad,
shot and killed James Fitzgerald,
12, wounded his father, a
striker, by shooting him through the
leg and wounded a passerby, rne
latter was shot through 'both legs.
It is said the trouble started when
the guard told a number of strike
sympathizers to keep off the right of
way, declaring he would "shoot the
first man who stepped over the dead
line." Fitzgerald, it is claimed, stepped
over, whipped out a pistol and
invited the guard to "begin shooting."
Early tonight about 600 strikers
and "sympathizers were collected near
the shops. Sheriff J. W. Persons sent
the telegram to Lieutenant Governor
Sterling at Rockford, which resulted
in troops being ordered here.
The railroad guard who fired the
shots was arrested by Sheriff Persons,
who drove him out of the county.
All men walking out of the Clinton
shops have deserted their joibs and.
the guards stationed at the shops
The Clinton shops employed about
500 men before the strike and 400 of
tho:e walked out July 1. No strike
breakers were imported by the roads,
it is said, and outside of those who
remained at work only a few came
in to augment their forces. Between
70 and 75 guards were stationed
aliout the shops.
Stories of how the trouble started
vary. The strikers claimed the ?
guards started it, and the guards
claim the strikers v/ere the first to
After the shooting, strikers and
sympathizers started for the city for
guns. Word preceded them and by
the time they reached the business
section two of the t.iree hardware
stores in town had succeeded in hiding
their stock, and inside the third
w^re police and deputy sheriffs. Their
attempts to keep the men out were
futile and the men, it is said, took
every gun and cartridge in the store
and started for the railroad yards.
Postmaster Cline arrived just as
the men were leaving, talked with
them and asked them to stop and
think before they committed murder
or -shed unnecessary blood. The men
listened and returned arm-3 and am
munition they had taken.
The strikers returned to the railroad
yards but later came to town
and gathered in groups about the
street corners waiting the arrival of
