Two Hundred in Mob That Assaults

Chicago, Jan. 24. Two tailor shops
were partly wrecked, more than a hun-!
dred nonunion tailors driven into the
street, and 6ix arrests were made in a
riot incident to the garment workers'
strike here today. Many tailors were
bleeding from cuts and scratches be
fore the disturbance was quelled.
The trouble started when about two
hundred strikers and their sympathiz
ers appeared at the shop of William
Tuitts. Fifty nonunion tailors of both
sexes were at work at the machines.
The strikers drove them into the
street, wrecked the machines and mu
tilated the garments upon which they
had been at work. As the terror
stricken workers rushed Into the

A patrol call brought a detail of po

the rioters in front of the shop of Mrs.
M. Baumgarten. Forty-five employes
of the latter had been driven into the
street and roughly handled. Bluecoats
charged the crowd with drawn clubs.
Policeman Solberg was bested by the
strikers, who beat him to the ground,
but after 15 strenuous minutes the
crowd dispersed, leaving six alleged
ringleaders in the hands of officers.
