A pear tree Is In bloom on n lawn in
Ilackcnsack, K. J.
Lawrence, Mass,, Sept. 30. Organized
labor history opened a new chapter here
lo-day when for the llrst time In this
:ountry a "demonstration" strike against
thu Imprisonment of" labor leaders took
place. After hand-to-hand clashes be
tween rioters and police, from the opening
of tho textile mill gates In tho morning
until nightfall, the demonstration" was
declared oft by tho Industrial Workers of
'.ho "World.
Tho strike was called for 24 hours, be
tlnnlng this morning, In protest against
the Imprisonment of Joseph J. Ettor, Ar
Uiro Glovnnnlttl and Joseph Caruso,
whoso trial in connection with tho death
f Anna Loplzzo opened In Salem to-day.
Seven thousand of tho 25,000 operatives In
the cotton nnd woolen mills hero obeyed
Iho call, forcing out C.000 others cither
through Intimidation or lack oi work be
:auso of closing down of departments.
Then at a mass meeting late this aftor
noon the workers were told to go back
to work to-morrow morning, ready to
come out ngaln at the call of tho Indus
trial Workers If tho lenders are not satis
fied with the progrcs-s of the trial at
Salem.
The worst of the rioting occurred at
tho opening of the mill gates this aft
ornoon. Pickets armed with revolvers
knives, sledge hammers, Iron nous ana
other weapons, attempted to stop op
eratives from going Into the mills.
When the pollco tried to maintain or
der, the pickets struggled with thorn
desperately. Swinging their clubs with
effect, the blue coats drove back tho
rioters. A score of arrests were made,
many of the prisoners having cracked
heads, while there were numbers of
others who escaped through the
jrowds to their homes with bleeding
'loads and bruised faces.
VTTACK "WOMEN AND CHILDREN.
Men, women and children, on their
way to work, were held up and as
faulted by strikers or sympathizers.
But one hospital case was reported,
that of an operative who was thrown
headlong from a street car and knock
ed unconscious. Ho was later discharg
ed. No policeman was wounded and
no shots were fired.
The decision of the Industrial Workers'
leaders to call oil the strike was made
public at a mass meeting attended by
5,000 persons In a vacant lot this after
noon. Miss Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, ono
of tho organizers, told tho gathering that
the strike was ended and that all should
return to work to-morrow. There was no
dissent. Miss Flynn told them that they
were to hold themselves in readiness for
another call to bo sent out by the Indus
trial Workers of the World. "If Ettor,
Glovannlttl and Caruso are not given
Justice," said Miss Flynn, "you must
demonstrate your solidarity again."
No vote was taken at tho meeting on
the matter of formally ending the strike.
Archie Adamson, who presided, said aft
erward that the usual vote was dispensed
with because It was feared some of tho
"hotter heads" among tho strikers might
insist upon remaining out and thus create
disturbance. It was announced at head
quarters that a vote will be taken to
morrow among the textile unions of Lo
woll on the matter of striking In the big
cotton mills there, and that similar ac
tion will be taken at other Now England
mill centers during the present week
The Industrial Workers are sending out
circulars throughout the country. It was
loarned, asking individual mill opera'
tlves whether they are ready to go out on
a general strike as a protest against the
trial of Ettor and Qlovannltti, "If It is
not conducted properly."
RIOTING ALL MORNING.
The day's rioting which continued at
intervals all morning after tho first vlo
lence at the opening of the mills and
broke out again at tho noon hour, flashed
out once moro at closing time to-night. At
the corner of Essex and Union streets a
crowd of Italian operatives and sympa'
thizers who were on strike met some PO'
llsh workmen coming from one of the
mills. The two parties at once came to
blows but a squad of pollco leaped into
the midst of the tumult with drawn clubs
and after a few moments of hard fighting
illsnersed the crowd.
Tho riots were handled by 200 city and
State pollco. Automobiles at tho central
.tntinn house took flying squadrons of
officers wherever sorious trouble was re
tiorted.
Women and children were sufferers in
tho evening riot aB they had been dur
Ing the morning. Several were knocked
down and apoarontly trampled upon
hut none appeared to be seriously hurt.
Dinner palls were snatched from tho
hands of operatives returning from work
and hurled back into the faces of tho
owners. Tho State pollco usslsted the city
aatrolmen In quelling thla disturbance,
there being about 60 officers altogether
'n tho snuad. While tho. Lawrence men
used their clubs, tho State officers drew
their revolvers when the crowd becamo
moro menacing, and at the point of the
levelled weapons tho mob was driven
In sullen retreat for several blocks be
fore It finally dispersed.
One of the addresses In Italian aroused
the crowd at the afternoon mass meet
Ing. "If Ettor, Glovannlttl and Caruso
jre found guilty," the speaker said, "or
cither of them Is found guilty, tho In
dustrlal Workers of the World will
march to Salem, storm the Jail and res
sue the prisoners. If possible."
Early New Englanders brought the
wage problem with them from England.
They studied It with much keenness. They
brought out somo unusual vlows of It.
They enacted somo curious laws to reg
ulate It. They required a great deal of
labor In tho colonics. There was an Im
mense amount of work to be done. The
companies that established tho settle
ments recognized the need of slflllcd men.
They made up their expeditions, not of
soldiers and adventurers, but of profes
sional men, skilled mechanics, laborers
and farmers. John Kndlcott, leader of
tho company which settled Salem, was a
skillful man of business. Ho was to ro-
eclvo tfOO a year salary from tho com
pany as governor of the settlement. He
was tho highest salarica man in the ex
pedition. Kndlcott brought with him 100 men,
many of them skilled workcrs.Ono of
them, Syrach Miller, was a cooper and
cleaver. lie was to receive $228 for his
tlrst year's service and $250 for his sec
ond. He was to provide an assistant and
pay him from his own wages. James
Edmonds, a sailor, flshorman and cooper,
was to receive $30 from his flrst year's
service and $75 for his Focond and $100
for his third. Samuel Sharp, who had
charge of the guns and ammunition, was
to receive $50 a year for his services
ncv. I'Tnncis mgginson, who came
over In 1629. a year after Kndlcott, was
to receive $150 a year, and also free pas
sago for himself and his family, his
house room, a parcel of land, two cows
and other perquisites. Furthermore, In
tho event of his death, tho company
was to take care of his family.

year ho was to receive $75, and for tho

The general court of Massachusetts
Ray Colony early undertook to regulate
wages by law. In 1630 It voted:
"It is ordered that no master car
penter, mason, Joiner or bricklayer
shall take over IB pence a day for their
ork, If they have meat and drink, and
the second sort not to have above 12
pence a day, under pain of 10 shillings
fine to both giver and receiver."
By "the second sort," the court meant
unskilled laborers. This early labor lnw
as an attempt to establish a maxi
mum wage. It was tho opposite of the
present-day attempt to establish a min
imum wage. Its purpose was to prevent
workmen charging too much for their
services. Tho Colonial magistrates con
sidered the rights and privileges of em
ployers superior to those of employes.
Six months after this original maximum
age law was enacted, an amendment
as adopted, exempting employers from
fines If they paid more than the legal
amount of wages. Hut workmen were
still llablo to a fine for receiving more
than the amount of wages fixed by law,
and a number of them were actually
fined. After a few years, the law was
entirely revoked. Men were lined In Ply
mouth as late as 1639 for accepting larger
wages than the law permitted.
In 1640 the General Court authorized
some towns to establish rates of wages
for workmen wlth'n their townships. U
also authorized constables to discrimi
nate between skilled and unskilled work
ers, and to fix their wages accordingly,
Tho Puritans frowned upon loafers and
idlers, and the General Court authorized
constables to punish them. Tho court
Iso authorized the towns to appoint
three good men to arbitrate disputes over
wages which might arise between employ
er and employe.
The labor situation In Colonial times
as made confusing by the employment
of bondmen and slaves. Many of the
bondmen and bondwomen came from
England under contract to serve their
masters for a period of four years, upon
consideration of payment of their pas
sage over. Philip English, a wealthy
Salem merchant, made a huslness of
bringing over bondmen and bondwomen.
Ho had 45 of them In his charge nt one
time. He could not employ them all, so
he let the service of some of them to
other merchants.
The Puritan magistrates considered it
both Just and thrifty that criminals
should be sold Into bondage. Hence
number of violators of tho Colonial laws
had to pay thoir penalty In work. The
Puritan magistrates also approved of the
practice of whipping servants and slaves
The enslaving of the Indians and the
Importing of negroes from the West In
dies began In early Colonial days. Rev
Hugh Peters wrote to Governor Winthrop
In 1637, asking for a "dividend" in some
Pcquot Indian enptlvcs. He expressed
preference for "A young woman, or a boy
and a girl." He also spoke of "some
boys from Bermuda." In 1639 a number
of Pequot Indians were exchanged for
negroes from the West Indies. This
was one of the llrst slavery transactions
in which New Englanders had a part
Tho writers of Colonial times, as well as
ministers and magistrates, thought slav
ery Just and profitable.
The General Court of the Massachusett
Bay Colony undertook to regulate Slav
ory, as It undertook to regulate wages
church going, styles in apparel and other
things. In 1619 It voted:
'There shall never bo any bond slavery
vllllanagn of captivity among us unless
U be lawful captives taken In Just wars
and such strangers us willingly sell
themselves or are sold to us. This ex
empts from servitude nono who shall b
Judged thereto by authority,
There were too many loop-holes In thl
early nntl-slavery law to make It effee
tlve. The number of slaves In Massa
chusetts stoadlly Increased until shortly
before 1750 there were about 6,000 slaves
here in the State. As late as 1742 the fol
lowing advertisement appeared In tho
Boston News Letter:
A negro woman to bo sold by the
printer of this paper, the very best negro
In town; who has had the smallpox and
measles; Is as healthy as a horse,
brisk as a bird, and will work like
beaver."
Wages of women were very low
Colonial times. They ranged from
to $25 a year and board. Most women
workers In Colonial times were employed
as servants In homes. A typical woman
worker of Colonial times wai Elizabeth

Mr. Fllnn appeared not only to tell
his contributions, but to nnswer tho
charges Senator Penrose had mado last
August, that Mr. Fllnn offered $1,000,000
to him and Israel W. Durham In 1901
for tho Pennsylvania senatorial ap
pointment to succeed M. S. Quay; and
that In the snino fight Mr. Fllnn ex
ch.tncrd telegrams with John D. Arch
bold of tho Standard Oil company ask
ing his support.
The Pittsburg man declared that If Sen
ator Penrose) mado tho llrst statement
"ho lied." As to the other, ho produced
J. G. Splaln of Pittsburg, who testified
that he "thought" ho had signed Mr.
Fllnn's name to tho telegram to Mr.
Archbold, Juno 7, 1!I; and that he, and
not Mr. Fllnn had handled the telegrams
with Mr. Archbold and had attempted to
secure the Standard Oil Influence In Mr.
Fllnn's support.
Prodded by Senator Tomorene of Ohio,
who demanded a specified answer, Mr.
Fllnn admitted having written an agree
mcnt In January, ISM, In which Senator
Quay, J. O. Brown and Mr. Fllnn pro
posed to divide up the federal and local
patronage of Pennsylvania. He declared
lit! had "gold bricked" Senator Quay;
that ho never had signed or intended to
sign the agreement and that he had writ
ten It only to allay Senator Quay's oppo
sition to tho republican candldato for
mayor of Pittsburg.
The Investigation brought out the fact
that Mr. Fllnn has this year contributed
$III,."AS.29 to the Roosevelt, tho republican
and tho progressive campaign In Pennsyl
vania. Mr. Hooker, who preceded him on
the witness stand, produced records to
show that the Roosevelt national com
mittee hnd spent $1I1.C",7.I4 In the entire
national primary campaign preceding tho
Chicago convention, over $32,000 of this
sum went to Massachusetts fur the bit
ter primary fight there.
Mr. Hooker also produced the record?
of the Now York primary campaign,
where the Roosevelt forces spent $52,C0'j.;j.
The records showed that Geo. W. Perklni
had given $15.0x to the New York and
$22.."W to the national campaign; Frank
A. Munsey $15,C'j0 to the New York and
$10,100 to the national campaign; and D.
R. Hann a $2."i,000 to the national cam
paign. Mr. Fllnn apportioned but $9D,SS4.1S

statement ho gave the committee of
I the- sums ho has e ntrlbuted th's ,vcar.

VERMONT NOTES.
According to n canvass by the Roston
Globe, It looks now ns If Wilson would
carry Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut,
possibly Massachusetts and Vermont,
New York, New jersey, .iiaryinnu, vest
Virginia, Wisconsin, Ohio, Missouri and
Kentucky, His chances seem good In
Iowa, Indiana and California, against
Roosevelt. The latter Is strong In Kan
sas, Michigan, Minnesota, Idaho, Mon
tana, Oregon and Washington. Delnwnre,
Now Hampshire and Illinois seem very
doubtful. Taft may carry Pennsylvania,

SO LIKE LINCOUS".
(From the Albany Journal. Rap.)
Theodore Roosevelt hns resumed his
'mo an' Lincoln" pose.
He told a crowd In Nebraska that "tho
only wny In which republicans can show
themselves true to Abraham Lincoln is
to support the Progressive (Democratic
Aid) party."
Immediately thereafter he repeated his
extremely dignified and refined assertion
of n fow days ago, that "Mr. Taft Is a
dead cock In the pit."
How ho reminds us ot Lincoln, becauso
he Is so different!
Lincoln said: "With malice townrd
none, with charity for nil." That was the
cardinal rule of his life.
And then, tho Democratic Aid candi
date paid: "Wo progressives Intend to
seo that In our party every promlso mado
by a public man Is kept."
If he had a conscience, there might
have come to his mind's eye, ns ho spoke,
a vision of himself on the night of elec
tion In the year 1901, writing this promlso
to tho people of the United States;
"Tho wise custom which limits a presi
dent to two terms regards tho substance
and not the form, nnd In no circum
stances will I be a candldato or accept
another nomination."

WHEN ROOSEVELT STUCK.
An old Harvard Instructor was recently
telling some people of tho time when
Theodora Roosevelt was a student In his
class. Ono dny young Roosevelt was re
hearsing a poem to bo recited for public
declamation. Ho got as fur as a line
which read: "When Greece, her knees In
Hiippllnnco bent," when ho stuck and
couldn't get any further. Again he re
peated: "When Greece, her ltneos," and still ho
stuck. Once more ho repented tho four
words, when finally the Instructor said:
"Roosevelt, suppose you grease her
Uncos again, nnd then, perhnps, she'll go,"
