(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.) o o WAITRESSES ON STAN D MINISTERS INDORSE STRIKE Waitresses who have suffered abuses at the hands of the police offi cers in front of Henrici's restaurant testified today in the injunction pro ceedings before Judges McGoorty, Windes and Baldwinfi sitting en banc. Carrie Alexander, president of the Waitresses' Union, testified to condi tions as she saw them on Randolph street. She was arrested twice at the start of the strike by Officer Mark Sullivan. Mabel Wambaugh, whose arm was so badly wrenched by Jerry Laughlin that it was necessary for her to go to the hospital, told the story of the brutal treatment. Her story proved effective. Jane Whitaker, of The Day Book staff, was on the stand and testified to the occurrences on which her stor ies of the strike were founded". Marie Ulrich also told of the atti tude of the police. 1 The church has come to the rescue of labor in the latter's fight for a liv ing wage and better working condi tions. The Baptist Ministers' Conference yesterday passed resolutions indors ing the waitresses in their fight against Henrici's. They also con demned police tactics and urged an investigation of restaurant kitchens. The resolution in part: "Be believe that all common inter ests of mankind have the right to or ganize for the protection and promo tion of the common good. "It is the law of God and the high est good of maq to observe one day's rest in seven and demand that one day's rest admits of no debate. "Wages must increasingly repre sent the real value of labor. A wage of $8 per week for a six-day week of ten hours per day is not unreason able compensation for waitresses. "There is no excuse for brutality on the part of our policemen. The policeman guilty of brutality in mak ing an arrest and offending in speech or manner the person arrested should be dismissed in disgrace from the force. We demand that the com plaint of rough handling by. the po lice made by one of the waitresses be investigated and, if proved, that the offending person or persons be dis charged. "Working conditions in restaurants and kitchens should be thoroughly investigated by the city health de partment and we request that this be done.". The resolutions were introduced by Rev. Melville P. Boynton. Hearings of 121 cases against wait resses were continued until March 26 by Judge Turnbaugh. o o DYNAMITERS MAY GET DELAY The United States Circuit Court of Appeals here may not issue a man date, recommitting dynamiters whose conviction was affirmed by the Su preme Court, to Ft Leavenworth for several weeks, court officials say. The government's petition for a re hearing on the appeals of three of the convicted men who were granted new trials by the circuit court several weeks ago, is still pending. It is not believed that the committment order will be entered until this petition is disposed of. o o - RICH MAN KILLED BY TRAIN Walter S.
