iThe proprietors can't sleep of
nights for worrying over what's
going to happen to that floor.
They'd just as lief liave a drove
of horses on it as a political meet
ing. Found one hall, though, that
didn't have a sensitive floor.
However, there were other con
siderations. The man in charge
of it grew very grave. "What
kind of a show is this?" he asked.
"There are some kinds of show
we donfwant."
I told him it wasn't a barn
storming troupe, but a rally in the
interest ofs Mockhiser for Con
gress, to be addressed by the
Hon. Mockhiser himself,.
"In that case," said the village
auditorium magnate in a hard
voice, "the price will be $8."
.Which is what I had to pay. I
rather suspect that the Blimley
crowd would have got it for $6.75.
I wonder how Mockhiser is
getting along; He was due at
jWoodlouse, Thrips. and Razor

Little Falls, N. Y., Oct 30.
Scenes such as Lawrence knew
last winter occurred in the mill
strike here today.
Last night the mill owners
asked the police to break up the
strikers' picket lines.
This morning Chief of Police
Long, at the head of a score of
special police, all with drawn
clubs, charged into the pickets.
Scores of strikers, both men
and women, were brutally beaten
up. John Kenney, a special po
liceman ,was stabbed in the neck
and buttock. Michael Haley, an
other special, was shot in the left
Kenney says he was stabbed by
a woman. The shot that dropped
Haley came from the butskirts of
the crowd. It is not known
whether a special or a striker '
fired it.
After the police had beaten up -the
"pickets they raided the strike '
headquarters and another fight T
occurred there.
One striker whom Chief Long s
struck over the head with his club
is now in the hospital, suffering!
from concussion of the brain. He
probably will die. I
Before the trouble at strike
headquarters was over Sheriff,
Moon at the head of twenty depu,- t
ties arrived to help out the police.
About twenty of the strike
leaders were arrested. They
have been charged with inciting
a riot, t
Of 'course, Chief Long and
Sheriff Moon place all the blame -
for the riot on the strikers. I
Mayor Lunn's trial, which was .
to have come up today, was post-s
poned because of the rioting.
