a wagon drove up in front of the
i Hamilton Rubber Company's
store. A police officer descended
from it and askedwhere the man
r who was hurt was
' During those twenty-five min-
r utes Underwood had been lying
i --the store with, a smashed skull,
t bleeding constantly from the ears,
probably dying.
The police wagons had been
gathering news boysywhich em
ployment the pphep evidently
r considered more important than
. a man's life.
It is not known whether or not
Underwood will live. The police
wagon took him to the Iroquois
'Memorial hospital. The officials
at that hosprtalTiave developed a
remarkable teticence as to the
conditions or" their patient The
police refuse to answer any ques
tions regarding' him.
The reasen why no police
wagons were -available to care for'
Underweod was because of thet
toncentratJon of the police war
on the union newsooys.
Chief McWeeny's order of Sat
urday forbidding the newsboys to
cry their wares did not have the
desired effect So today, strong
er measures, what the police call
"drastic measures were begun.
These "drastic measures,"
cleared of superfluous language,
.simply are: The taking of the

boys; the clearing of all union
ifewsboys fro mthe streets in the
loop district; and the beginning
of a police controlled distribution
ornewspapers, the distribution,
of course, being only of such
newspapers as the police approve.
This forenoon Max 'Annan-
berg, circulation'-rnanager of the
Tribune, and deputy sheriff by
grace of Zimmer, appeared at the
elevated station at Wilson and
Evanston avenues.
A union -newsboy selling Daily
Worlds was at that place. An
nanberg flashed his newly acquir
ed deputy sheriff stai and ordered,
the Daily World newsboy to leave
the place.
The Daily World newsboy re-'
fused. Atmanberg called upon
the crew he had brought with
him and threw the union news
boy's papers on the street. t-
That started a riot. The news
boy, Alexander Hickey, was ar
rested. He was arraigned in the
Sheffield Avenue Court this af
ternoon von la change of assault
He was released on $1,000 bond.
Meantime the police denied all
knowledge of Hickey where
abouts to the Daily World. While
Hickey was imprisoned at the
Town Hall Station the Daily
World was scouring the hospitals
of the town for him, and swore
out a warrant charging Annan
berg with attempted murder.
The news of Annanberg's at
tack on the Pinion newsboy
spread rapidly over the city.
