ing to the Scotsman, Frank J. Gould,

Headed by the crack Twenty-third
Infantry band, the military division of
the parade was one of its most effect

appeared for the first time this year
in the blue and white of their winter
uniforms and the color effect was

Dryer & Co.. by which 500 men are to
return to work for each firm. No
mention of wages is made in the
agreement which provides 48 hours'
work each week for cutters and 54 for
miscellaneous employes. The agree

use the union label and is held by the
strikers to be a victory.
The right to have a monster parade
through the business district was re
fused the strikers when a committee
sought that privilege from the chief cf
police. The chief refused to permit
the parade on the ground that it might
lead to riots.
