TJie Sympathetic Strike at the
Chicago Stock Yards Was
THE 700 TEAMSTERS WENT OUT.
The Waiteresses in the Packing House
Restaurant Struck, Also Stenog
raphers iu General Oilier.?.
Several Small Riots Took Place Tues-
day Which Is Believed to Be
Only a Foretaste of What
Is To Come.
Chicago, July 27. The sympathetic
strike at the stockyards was complete
Wednesday morning. The belated
sanction of the teamsters Joining their
brother -workmen in the general strike
was given Tuesday night by the pin
cers of the International Teamsters'
union, and the 700 drivers employed
In the packing industry In Chicago
quit work. Nearly 100 of these men
struck Tuesday of their own volition,
refusing to wait for an ofllcial order
notifying them that the sympathetic
strike was Indorsed. With the union
teamsters out every union organiza
tion represented In the Chicago pack
ing plants Is on strike. The teamsters
organization is considered one of the
most important organizations in the
present controversy and all along was
mainly depended on to bring success
to the strikers.
The greater portion of the fresh
meats disposed of to the local trade is
hauled in wagons to the down-town
district by these teamsters. With the
men on strike and no union men in
their places rioting is almost sure to
follow and a duplication of the riots
which took place in 1902 during the
packing house teamsters' strike are
looked for as soon as the packers at
tempt to deliver their products with
Riots by the unionists and their
friends In the stockyards district on
Tuesday night resulted in the shoot
ing, of one man and the beating of
another into Insensibility, while a
third was severely cut and bruised.
This is believed- by the police to be
but a foretaste of what Is to come,
now that the teamsters have joined
issues with the other union workmen.
A peculiar situation growing out ot
the strike of waitresses In the pack
ing house restaurants came to light
at the Swift plant, when Swift's wai
tresses struck some of the stenog
raphers In the general offices offered
to do the work and when the super
intendent tried to reinforce these by
asking others to help, 60 women sten
ographers walked out of the building
Little If any advantage was gained
by either side In the stockyards strike
Tuesday and there is no hope of any
immediate settlement of the difficulty.
Realizing that they have one of the
hardest propositions to contend with
in the history of the packing indus
try, the packers are leaving nothing
undone to gain the upper hand in the
struggle with their 30,000 union em
ployes who are on strike. All day long
workmen from outside points were
rushed to Chicago and taken to the
stockyards, under police protection, to
fill the places of the strikers. Tues
day night It was announced by tho
packers that 7,000 new men were now
Installed In the different plants at the
stockyards. With these men and with
the new arrivals that are expected
each day, the packers expect to get
their affairs In such shape that the
strikers will be compelled to seek a
truce in the hostilities and seek a
peaceable settlement at the dictation
of the employers.
It was also stated here Tuesday
Might that officers of the International
Teamsters union has Issued orders
calling out all teamsters in the em
ploy of the big packing plants at Kan
sas City, St. Louts and Boston.
The union live stock handlers de
cided late Tuesday night to return to
work at the stockyards In sufficient
numbers to handle all live stock
bought by tho independent packers.
