FAIL TO STOP CHILDREN
FROM GOING TO N. Y.
Lawrence; Mass., Feb. 22.
The first attempt of the city au
thorities, who are hand in glove
with the' mill owners, to stop the
sending qf children -from the
homes of strikers to other cities,
Strike leaders took ten chil
dren to the station to place them
on a train en route to Bridgeport,
Conn., where homes and good
food were waiting them.
They were met by policemen,
acting under orders of Mayor
Scanlon, who refused to permit
them on the. train.
The excuse of the policemen
was that the children were be
ing kidnaped, that they were be
ing sent away withoujthe con
sent of their parents.
The children were taken to po
lice headquarters, and their par

the mayor lhat the children were
sent away with their full consent.
"They're going where good
food is waiting for them. They'll

The excuse of the police and
the mayor being taken from them
the children were given permis

that time the train, had left, but

Strike Leaders Ettor and Giov

niti's connection with the killing
had been produced ,and that, in
deed, evidence that the woman
was killed by a policeman had
been produced in court.

"Why? he thought, "I pay,
them fair wages. They must
have some savings. I'll just gath
er them in."
Then he called in all the. ser
vants, and explained to them that
nowadays men and women get on
in the world only by their thrift.
He added that the other name of
"thrift" was "investment," and
offered to "invest" their savings
The servants, of course, were
tickled to death to do this. They;
had to be tickled to death. Other
wise they might 'lose their jobs.
So they gave all their savings to
Hawley, and continued to do so
