Trouble outside the plant of the
Remington Arms & Ammunition Co.,
as the day gangs were going to work,
was averted through, the 'prompt ac
tion of Charles Sehl, International Or
ganizer of the I. A. M. - ,- ,
Sehl - arrived ; on the scene when
policemen weie drawing - night sticks
and pickets were raising their, voices
in claiming ' the- right to accost' and
argue with men entering, tjie plant for
work. : , '."::..:. ' ' '' ; c-'-'.i " ''
. There was a throng about the gates
this morning? at an -early- Jiour, 'long
before the; -workmen began to arrive.
A squad, of policemen were on the
job, tinder Sergeant James J. O'Neill.
But more effective than t'fei police, in
keeping the crowd moving were the
processions of double teams I passing
almost '. continuously . through, tne
crowds. . ' , :
The pickets were very active. Prac
tif ally-'Wy-'memberf-of Utae machin
ists craft had a ;few words with the
pickets as he approached the gates. -
Most of the . ; conversations were
tiuiet. Several of them however, be
came heated, and loud voices and ar
guments in various quarters brought
crowds in , a few moments. j :
There 'was a threatening moment
when O'Neill descended upon a picket
who was . expostulating loudly , with a
machinisrt,. whotnsisted on f entering
the "plant." "O'Xoirt at once" reprimand
ed "the picket wh5,et6rted that he
knew his rights and he didn't pro
pose to allow any ," policemen to de
prive him of the privileges he ; enjoy
ed under the' law of the state ;
" A crisis was imminent when Charles
Sehl made his way quickly, through
the "crowd, and counselling the . pic
ket, to more moderate -methods, and
advising them; to be' guided by the ad
vice . of the police, adverted the. storm.
The strike leaders remained about
the plant -until about 9 -o' clock ... when
thpy retired for conference im today'
work, and. to -prepare for their descent
upon other factories and to. make final
plana for their concerted efforts at the
Remington-XT. M. C. factories in Bar
nuiB'' avenue. . . .,
They arranged to catch the nonday
crowds at the Remington -IT. M. C. Co.,
an-d they were to have gatherings of
employes of many crafts either .on the
street or In nearby hall a .
GO Oil STRIKE FOR
Twenty-five Llore Leave at
4 a. m. and Join 11 Who .
Twenty-five guards of the Reming
ton Arms plants went m strike at 4
o'clock this morning and joined the 11
who struck lastxnight. '
The men demand $18 a week. They
receive $14.10 now. " '"'',' v
: According to statements made by
the gisaiTds, they are .receiving labor
ers' wages when, they are performing
an important duty by guarding plants
worth millions of dollars. They also
object to one of their officers, because
he is a militiaman with no army
training. - All the guards are former
army men, who have had ; to show
honorable discharges from the I?. S.
trmy before -they received jobs.
Incidentally, the barracks that were
being built for the guards, on the
southeastern end ' of the big new
plant may not be completed until the
strike trouble is settled. The brick
work had been nearly completed but
much, more work remains to be done.

Strikers at the plant of the Coul

and Middle streets,- surrounded the
building this, morning and' hooted
"scab!" for many minutes at the per
sons who didn't obey the strike or
der and rsmained at work. :
Many men who were timid about
quitting at first began to leave the
plant at this, according to i officials of
the plant, . The noise became so se
rious however, that a police detail
was sent to- the plant -and the strikers
were dispersed, ...
TO DOUBLE FORCE
OF GUARDS AROUND
Police Commissioners Ex
pected to Arrange For In
. ' Forces of watchmen at the Rem
ington plants will be doubled within a
few days., Tnis was evident , this
morning when applications poured in
to the police department, from -the of
ficers of, the, guards at the , ammuni
tions plants. v ,' i
Up to noon, seven applications had
been received : from manufacturing
concerns other than the Remington;
To provide for, the - contingencies
that may . arise ;a special .1 metting of
the' board of ' police '-commissioners
wjll be held either this evening or to
morrow evening. Arrangements " will
then be made .for increasing the po
lice protection . about the affected
shops and the ones likely to be af
fected. .- .
Prosecuting Attorney A. ; L. De
Laney gave an opinion today concern
ing the right, of a picket to hold up a
striker1, sustaining the. pickets. .
, -Policemen stationed at headquarters
and third precinct have - been tem
porarily transferred 'to - the second
precinct station under ; Captain RedT
gate, and "will "double up" with the
policemen on the beats in the vicyiity
of the Arms and Cartridge-shops, y
' Two regiilar-policemen were detail
ed, this morning ito the plant of the
Couler & , MeKenzi'e Machine Co. on
Middle street and they will be under
the supervision of Sergeant - John!
O'Connell. ' Its is believed that this de-
tail will be' augmented.; - ' , -. .
A serious question arose regarding
the authority of pickets to hold up
workingmen -while on- their way to
their place of employment. Com
plaint has been received at police
headquarters that pickets are stopping
them, and , agitating them to strike.
Prosecuting Attorney DeLaney decid
ed that pickets have a right, under the
statutes of Connecticut, to , stop a
worker and show cause why he
should go out but he emphasized the
fact that they have no right to stop
or hold a man against bis own wishes
and that if the latter procedure was
put into vogue he would issue war
rants for arrests. ." . ' "
; The opinion of - police , officials is
that before the week ends a special
meeting of the police board will . be
called at which the special police
force of the city will be augmented
by about 20 or 30 men. Although the
situation so far has been almost serene
it is feared by those in authority that
trouble is brewing' and precautionary
measures -will be adopted. The local
police force appear to be- severely
handicapped and it is almost a cer
tainty that the appointments will be
made. y .. '"-i
Motorcycle policemen from the
various precincts report at head
quarters about every two hours and
if the situation becomes more serious
they will be rushed to the Arms plant
fully prepared to offset the expected
trouble. 'j ' - ,
-Orders have, been issued to the
guards, who are regularly appointed
special policemen by the officials of
the plants affected by the strike, that
in case of an emergency, to call upon
any citizen at hand to aid them and
if the request is refused to place them
under arrest. That is legal, according
to the statutes.

. The first real picketing' scene was
enacted at' the Remington Arms &
Ammunition plant last night when
union members . of.; the machinists
gathered !to greet the union and non
union . machinists 1 who had not come
out , of tho factory at aioonime.
There were many , interesting debates
-between -the .two factions which 1 were
stopped -by . the police when 'the; 'feel
ing became .in-tenso. At one time so
closely and thickly were -the , factions
and spectators packed on the cement
bridge on Boston avenue that it
looked as 'if. the police would- take
action. A new method was intro
duced, whether by chance rather
than design is not 'known, but It had
immediate effect. This moth oil was
to pass heavy teams backwards and
forwards four deep on - the avenue,
two abreast eastward and two abreast
westward. - (The police had no more

they, had' miaiiaged to puU out about
150; of the da.y force and , 70 night
workers who had come, - to work but
were; induced by pickets to return
home. ' '- ,; ' . ' -. ' .... '. , -i "
It was later announced 'by the
leaders that about 50 machinists and
tool and die sinkers' had walked out
at' the Gaynor Manufacturing Co.; 20
from the , Bridgeport- Engineering
Oo.'S shops and 25 from the Middle
street branch of the Arms Co.
At the Columbia Nutft Bolt fac
tory (the leaders bad met with- the
announcement that rather than have
their men. on strike the company had
cancelled its contracts with the Arms
company 'and while f -the men were
fifst notified - to go out - it was later
agreed by the leaders that these men
should be permitted to work out the
day subject to last night's decision of
the-Machinists' unipn as to what f ur
ther action-should be taken.
Explanation was offered by Leader
Savage "as Ho the fiasco responsible for
the noontime failure at the Arms
plant. " " This ' was to the effect that
owing to expected arbitration from
an' unknown . New York eource, vt.he
leaders had thought best not 'to' give
the ; final strike order to the men
inside the r pliant until they came out
at the lunch hour. : Major Penfield's
flank movement of -keeping all the
men insiOe the guarded enclosure
Wad frustrated heir efforts to trans
mit the . orders -and it was not: until
night tiiat they could be given. . .
- J. J1. i Keppler, International -. vice
pnesident of the I. i-A. of M., went to
New York yesterday to confer in mat
ters relating to' the international paper'-workers'
strike. He was also ex
pected, to meat another pirominent
New Yorker.wllo had signified a will
ingness to, use his Influence to avert
the pending struggles here.
It was announced that International
Vice President Frank Jennings and
Dan Conlan were scouring the coun
try today in an effort to get a com
plete list of factories doing U. M. C.
work in event of necessity these fac
tories might be added to the list in
New England where union labor may
be Galled Out -. if the Remington, com
panies do not reach an understanding
here. ' - -' . . :
Announcement was made that Presi
dents Joseph E. McClorry of the In
ternational Association of Structural
Bridge and, Iron Workers, President
Kirby of the Carpenters' and Joiners'
union. President Johnson of the in
ternational i Association of v Machinists
and Frank Morrison, secretary of the
American Federation of Labor, ,had
been called to Washington to confer
on this strike situation with President
Samuel Gompers. That the national
head of the Federation would be
questioned as to has recent quoted ut
some of the profits. . - r.
The meeting was merely a preliminary-,
to the 'big meeting ton'ight in the
larger Rakoczy hall, when nearly 1,
000 are expected, to be present. Then
it is' expected the most active work
of enrolling men ixito the union, will
begin and several hundred are expect
ed to join.
The audience last 'night approved
the majority of the sentiments ex
pressed, . but a warm period came
when s. dissenter in. the middle of the
hall accused the editor. f , the Elore
of having ealld the Bridgeport Hun
garians) "peasants," - in his paper.
This the edtic-r, deified nd he assert
ed there was a misunderstartling Mr.
Sieiner,.;who is- his Bridgeport repre
sentative defended him also.
It was asserted at the meeting that
the organization of the Hungarians,
is the first step toward organizing all
the metal workers In. the city. It
was reiterated, that a' general .demand
for an eight hour day will be made.
It was at. the close of the meeting
thait the , plan to ' organize . the women
was announced. . ' The services ; of
several New 'York women was offered
and arrangements will be made for
printing literature for dissemination
among the women. ' ' ' ' ,
.( "We did -it in NeW York, and we
can do'it. here," -asserted one of the
women organizers. "She declared
that the shirtwaist makers in New
York worked from, dawn until dark;
until they ,.; formed an . organization;
when conditions -were changed. '
terances which -are' sajd to,, have
thrown a serious clpudover the strike
pall here, was 'intimated. ' ' 1
Vice President J.'A. Johnson of the
Iron Workers in this city last night
said: . .. - .... ;.
"Gompers --will have to beck up his
statements." - ' - .- '
The method by which Major Pen
field held the-men awa from the call
to go on 6trike was described in this
manner iby- one of the machinists in
side - - -
"We Jwere preparing -to go to' diri-
ner when the tuard &nf duty at all
the doors -in the structure on which
we were working . told -us that wo
sb.ould remain inside for a few- minutes-as
the major wanted to see us.
The foremen- of itshe room -were then
told by Major Penfield to tell us that
we : were - to -be given the eight hours
a . day and extra pay - for our ' work,
and that we -should remember that
witb all - the millions . coming to
Bridgeport 'it would be '-better for us
to stay at . work here and get . our
share than to have the' work done in
other cities and lose the golden show
er. ; "t, ' Some -: machinist then climbed
on a box andaddressed us. When
he asked for any dissatisfied auditor
to put, vp itheir hands it was not like
ly that any Would with all the guards
surroundi-rigi us. " Then, it was pro
posed that' a vote of thanks be sent
to the major, which, under the su
Ipervision of .the guards, was carried
into effect." ' , ' '
'It. was- pointed out by the Farmer's
informant that the reported dolrar-a
day increase to which the Remington
officials (referred in their appeal to
the machinists, waa. in effect the re
duction in working hours promised
for August 1. -
It was announced by the company
that "until further notice" the - men
would receive an eight-hour-day, with
no reduction in piay.
i "It means, that we will get 5 for
eight hours'" .work instead of ten
hours', work," said, one of the skilled
workers. , - .. . ., ....

THE HOWL AND DRY GOODS CC
HOW E. J. HILL
(Continued from Page 1.)
There was a call for campaign, funds.
an,, ardent document; a two-voiced ap-.
peai, one to patriotism aim lub uuici
for cash; for cash-for Hill. . ' v- i : "
. Mr. Cummings, ' searching ' for . the
author of the appeal, finally obtained
the admission , that Mr.' .HUl was ths
author.. He showed it to Judge Perry,
but nobody seemed to know why.
Five hundred copies of the. call for
money were circulated, some in Con
necticut,: and' some in Xew ; York, Where
there seemed to be, in minor Wall
street circles, a lively interest in Mr.
Hill's cam Dai en.
Mr. Hill was even more particular
about the large eight-sheet posters,
exhibiting him , in his . capacity of
statesman, than he had been to show
his ability as a seeker-of campaign
funds, j- He took from Milton Fessen
deli, chairman of his committee, the
task of selecting billboards. The loca
tions 'were :duly catalogued, and
marked as an exhibit. '
- Mr. Cummings vainly sought a copy
of the poster, It had looked down
from more than a hundred bill boards
in ,' Bridgeport, Danbury, Stamford,
Norwalk, Shelton, Newtown and, Da-rien,-.
bringing to thousands of people
the blessing of Mr. Hill's saintliest
smile. But of this noble and expensive-
'portrait there is now not a single
example left, for the instruction of
, It was different with the campaign
buttons, i the ordering, of which had
apparently, been left- to subordinates.
There were plenty of them. There
had been thousands originally, and
there are some left -to exhibit the
House-Committee on contested seats,
when 'the next congress meets. , But
the Hill portrait on the button, is
deemed ' less satisfactory, than the
Hill portrait on the poster", having
been, perhaps selected with less care.
There was a pamphlet : circulated
by the thousands.': It is a dainty lit--tle
booklet; printed after the highest
state of the art.. But it is of dimin
ished art value, because it is encum
bered by. the portrait of Senator
Frank . B. Brandegee, the only fly in
the oitment that is to say, the only
other Republican candidate who man
aged to get -the -attention of Fourth
District voters through the agency of
Mr. Hill's campaign fund. . These
pamphlets appear to have cost $570
or thereabouts. . -
But they were not the only pam
phlets. Mr. Cummings :re&d a let
ter, written on paper of the House of
Salts, and signed "House of Salts."
The "House of Salts" sent ' 10,000
pamphlets from their printers. The
'Charles Francis Press." They of
fered to . send the envelopes, also.
What these pamphlets were, and how
the "House of Salts" came to fur
nish them," for the present, is undis
But Fred E. Kip of the "House of
Salts," took a strong interest in the
Hill , fund. In one letter he tells
of raising $2,800, and he certainly was
some money getter. The "House of
Salts" makes textiles, has a factory
in Bridgeport, and was recently in
volved in an undervaluation affair

than the regular price. It is

With tlfe government, which cost it a
very pretty penny, it is said.r
One James A. Farrell received soma
of the Hill written appeals for-money
for Hill. (He didn't give-, but his broth
er gave. . Mr. Cummings made a search
for the identity of Mr. Farrell, who, it
appeared, is the same Mr. Farrell who
is president 6f the Steel Trust.
IV is.not , upon steel that Mr. Hill
principally relied for -t financial aid.
The hatters, metaphorically speaking,
were "bled until they looked like - bob
veal hanging ' on a ' hook behind a
butcher's counter. -' -
J. J., Asch and Charles A. Mallory,
the : one' a - former hat ( manufacturer
more recently, known for his connec
tion with the Triangle Shirt Factory,
in which ' many shirt , waist workers
were burned to, death,-and the otiler a
hat manufacture in Danbury, were
the men who "saw" the hatters. .They
received their commission to take vol
untary contributions from the Dan
bury hatters, at a little meeting, in a
Danbury club. Mr. Hill was present. -
Mr. , Asch. and 5ir. Msfllory were Jiist
told to goout and get the money. They
were not the agents of te,-political com
mittee, they-were" not political agents
of a candidate, they had no, authority
under the statute 'to collect money, but
they reaped a harvest just the same.
Their -activities are expected f.o bring'
them and some of the gentlemen who
gave the money into a very, unpleasant
situation, when . their collections -are
compared with - the r provisions of' the
corrupt practice acts. ',' , .--,; .v'--,"
' In fact it is said here that the 'drag
net will go out for other gentlemen
who collected funds, apparently with
out complying with the usual formal
ities. ; Among the number to be
called is F. J. ' Kingsbury, - of the
Bridgeport Brass company, who ap
peared in the correspondence -as hav
ing been present when funds were so
licited, upon ; an occasion. - .
,Mr. George A. Dominlck, of,, 4 9
Wall street, a banker, was a frequent
contributor to' the literature of Mr.
Hill's fund. : He had a heart. V At
least in. collecting money for the Hill
fund, he took no contributions from
those who ihad given to the Republi
can cause -in Greenwich.. Mr. Dom
inlck has a residence in Greenwich.
They all; pleaded poor in Greenwich.
And there came a time when Mr.
Dominlck "was obliged to announce
that no more funds could be expected
from this neighborhood.
