Tha New York. New Haven and
- JHartford Railroad company has ac
quired a unique reputation for handl
ing large crowds within a short spate
o? .time. Last fall, on the day of the
j. 'Sale-Harvard football game,, the road
-performed the prodigious feat of
transporting 33.378 persons to New
, s 5 Haven vwithin a period of four hours.
Within a period -of three hours, on
November 20th, the New Haven ter
minal was called upon, to handle and
' put away , a. passenger train very
three minutes and nine seconds.
. While the X ale-Harvard boat races
do not present such tremendous trans
portation problems as the football
games do, .yet a large extra traffic on
r: such occasions requires careful prep
arations and peculiar traffic arrange
ments in order to 'prbvide proper and
satisfactory facilities for the thou
sands of witnesses to , this annual
event - x
. . The general auditor of the New Ha
Ten railroad has Issued a special re
, f- jport on the extra traffic incident to
the last Yale-Harvard- boat race, held
on June: 25th, at New London. This
report shows that the two New Haven
specials, the New York special, the
, Boston Special and the two Harvard
lub specials carried 1.444 full' fare
passengers to the boat races and ret'
turned with 1,419 full fare passengers.

GIRL STRIKERS HUSTLE MEN
FROM HALL WHEN THEY HEAR
. CHARGE OF DOUBLE GROSSING
More Than Three Thousand Are Enrolled in Union Or
ganized to Support Agreement Made With D. H.
Warner Mrs.' Scully, Organizer, Counsels Girls To
Guard Rights Carefully And to Live Up Strictly To
. . ". Their Agreement Girls
; General Good Feeling Prevails.
Accused of misstEvtmg the terms of
the agreement - which the strikers'
committee and Mrs. Mary Scully ob
tained from the Warner Bros. Co.,
several men : who had been acting as
interpreters at the meeting to ratify
the agreement at . Eagles' hall late
yesterday afternoon were all but mob
bed by the Indignant women. 4ne
Of them dropped the paper he had
been reading and sneaked from the
stage into the crowd in the wings. An
other was summarily hustled on? the
stage and made his escape down a
back stair case bift not until some of
the girls had scratched his face and
pulled his hair. , N
; The strikers were assembled in the
hall, many being obliged to stand and
about 2:80 Mrs.- Scully arrived with
the agreement which DeVer H.VWar
ner had signed on behalf of his com
pany. - She wanted the strikers to
ratify the agreement but the Hunga
rian women refused, crying continual
ly in Hungarian, "no!"
Emil Steiner who has ' addressed
several meetings of the strikers talked
first to the Hungarian women. Then
Elmer Rosenberg, an officer of the
joint board of the Cloak Makers Un
in of New York city tried to talk
but the women wouldn't listen to him.
Mm Scully was mystified. "There; s
a -colored gentleman in the woodpile
somewhere," she said.
A few minutes afterward it all came
out. : Andrew Mikewicz, a local Po
lish agitator, was speaking to the Po
lish women when a young girl stood
up in the gallery and called out, "Mrs.
."All right my dear, keep still a
moment until this gentleman finishes,"
replied Mrs. Scully. ; '
"No, (Mrs. Scully, he is telling these
girls wrong. -He is not telling them
the agreement the way you told it in
English," shouted back the girl. '
"I understand Hungarian", shouted
another girl "that' Steiner didn't tell
the agreement ' right either. He ad
vised the girls not to sgo back and so
-did that . Pole. I know both lan
guages." Pandemonium then broke loose in
the hall, all the women talking and
chattering at once, in a half dozen
different languages. , Mrs. Scully
nearly wora out her arm rapping for.
order with the piece .of . a , chair she
had been using (for a gavel. When
quiet was ' restored .: again ' she burst
out: '-"' s , . . , .-' ., ;
"I am only a woman but if anyone
tries 4o put anything over on me I'll
lick the man who does it. Every
man interpreter I have had here has
tried to double cross me. Now I'll
run this meeting myself. I want one
of you girls who can speak the lan
guage to help me.".
Mikewicz laid down his paper and
beat a hasty retreat from the stage.
Steiner was met a few minutes later
by officials of the local ' Central La
bor body who had been summoned by
Mrs. Scully and he Was. ordered to
leave the-hall". ' Mrs. Scully said:
"I want one of you girls . who un
derstands Hungarian and can explain
this agreement to the Hungarian wo
rkmen to come on the stage and do so."
A rather pretty and stylishly dressed
young girl came forward and took the
paper and under Mrs.' Scully's direc
tion repeated the terms of the agree
ment. When she had finished they
readily 'ratified it. .They had .been
told by the male speakers, the girls
said; that the highest wages they could
receive . under ' the agreement was
$5.50 per weekj "When it was ex
plained "that this wai the lowest ige
that woufd be received and pjjece
workers would be paid , as much as
they made there was general applause
and the Hungarian women- readily
agreed. ." . - '"' $
This same procedure " was carried
out with other nationalities. Bright
and pretty girls were called from the
assemblage to explain the terms of the
strike in Italian, Lithuanian, and Po
lish. - ,. . '
When , the unanimous vote was ta
ken 'ratifying the agreement there
was cheering loud and strong enough
to raise the room. Mrs. Scully ad
dressing the girls regarding the agree
ment that had been secured with the
Warner Bros. Co., said in part: -
"Now girls, don't forget your un
ion. It is backed by the American
Federation of Labor. I want every
girl to join. You have something no
union in this city-has ever had, a grie
vance committee to , which you can
take your troubles if anything is
wrong, and have them remedied. -"
"In this agreement with your un
ion you have a wonderful instrument
to play on, but play classic music,
don't play ragtime. Stick to your or
ganization and be fair with yourselves
and with the boss and you will find it
all clear sailing. t Your only hope in
keeping up your agreement and in
living up to it is in your union.
"I am a worker myself and I know
how hard it is. I was left a widow
without money and with five children
to raise and I - know what it is to be
without money to pay the rent and
to have to dodge the landlord. That's
why I'm in the labor movement be
cause it is the only way we women
can get anything. If we don't stand
up for our rights the men won't stand
up for us. Women .organizers have
entered the labor movement and left
it again because they cannot stand the
insults and abuse from men who ought
to know better. They cannot stand
to be hustled by the police and to be
called 'grafters' by others if they1 lose
or settle a strike. Why I have serv
ed nine months in jail for activity in
trying to organize women workersnike
yourselves. This life is not an easy
one but I am in it toStay. I am go-
ing to stay right here in Bridgeport
and organize the other women, work
ers and I am going to stay here and
help you keep your union going if it
takes six months."
There was much cheering for Mrs.
Scully -when she had finished.
- At & meeting held in Eagles hall
last night 3,200 girls paid their ini

a squad of volunteer workers who
took the applications and moQey last
During the taking and signing of the
membership applications a number of
girls procured tin horns and soon a
din was being raised that could be
heard for blocks away. After the
meeting the girls organized them
selves into an " impromptu parade.
They raised improvised banners on
sticks with such expressions as "Hur
rah for D. H.. Warner," "Hurrah for
the 8 hour day." The parade, cheer
ing and tooting horns passed down
Main street and then broke into two
divisions one going to the South End
the other to the West End.
All returned to work to-day. ---There
was much cheering as the girls entered

Strike Not In Line
With I. A. M. Policy
Washington, Aug. 19- When the ex
ecutive board of the. International
Board of Machinists meet in continua
tion of its session here today, J. J.
Keppler, vice president dl the organ
ization, was on hand ready to urge his
proposal for a national strike in muni
tion plants of the country to enforce
the eight hour day, despite the board's
action yesterday in repudiating the
proposal. The board, however, decided
to conduct a greneral campaign for a
shorter work day in all shops.
W. II. Johnson, international presi
dent, who was authorized to disavow
the strike project, said that an inter
view attributed to Keppler declaring
that he would urge a strike was un
authorized by the association and was
at variance with its policy.
"We 'have not declared for a general
strike, Mr. Jonhhston added. "In
fact, we will use evSry means to pre
vent such a devolopment."
Practically all the employes of the
Potter & ' Jonhson Machine Co. plant
at Pawtucket, R. I., went on strike for
shorter hours and more pay.
