Gary, Ind., Oct. 8. Homes of stee!
strikers and sympathizers m Gar. In
cluding that of Paul Glaser, chief coun
sel of the union In the Indiana city,
and socialist headquarters there, was
raided by federal authorities, who
seized masses of "red" literature and
hundreds of firearms. The raids were
carried out by federal operatives
backed by regular army troops. Glaser
and other socialist leaders were to
have been questioned later In the day
by Col. W. G. Mapes, in command of
the regulars at Gary since Gen. Leon
ard Wood's departure for Chicngo.
Much bolshevik literature and a num
ber of firearms were found in Glaser's
home, according to the military au
thorities. An automobile load of ?'ed
literature and a red flag were seized
at Socialist headquarters. The home
of Demitru Economof, a striker, yield

1,400 regular troops rule Gary to

are on the way to the . steel
city from Omaha. Four thousand are
within call if, needed. Martini law
went into effect at 9 :30 this morning.

Indiana militia has been mobilized.
Governor Goodrich issued the procla
mation establishing full military rule
at 7:45. The jurisdiction of the mili
tary authorities extends over nil ter
ritory within five miles of two
cities. -
1 Demonstration by Strikers.
United States troops were called to
Gary following demonstrations by strik
ers, which the local authorities were
unable to suppress. A huge parade of
workers was held during the afternoon
oh open defiance of Mayor Hodges'
orders. Several hundred workers In
soldiers' uniforms headed the parade
and tnunted the militia who were
pushed about the street. The police
far from trying to break up the pa
rade, cleared traffic so that it might
have the right of way.
General Wood acted instantly on the
request for aid thnt cam om Gov
ernor Goodrkh. A provisional regi
ment had been mobilized at Fort Sheri
dan since the strike began. It was
ordered to move at once, and in 15
minutes from the time orders were re
ceived the entire regiment was aboard
motortrucks with rifles, machine guns,
automatic rifles, trench mortars and
three one pounders, mounted on
trncUs. The little force rolled through
Chicago at dusk, down Lake Shore
drive and Michigan avenue ana
reached Gary shortly after 9 o'clock.
Tho roerulars were Immediately put
on patrol duty. Their bronzed faces,
steel helmets, service stripes ana gen
erally . businesslike attitude, brought
Immediate ' respect from strikers.
There was one small attempt at a
parade. The . mere suggestion ' by a
policemnn that federal troops were In
town and had forbidden such demon
strations was enough to break it up.
Enforce "No Arms" Rule. ,
The soldiers began enforcing that
portion of the proclamation forbidding
citizens to carry concealed weapons.
More thnn a dozen arrests are said to
have been made before seven o'clock.
Several of those arrested were strik
ers who had taken shotguns and were
going out In the dunes to hunt small
game, ' Several were reienseu uuer
being disarmed and proving to the
authorities that their intentions were
peaceable. -. '
Upon the arrival of the federal sol
diers and the proclamation by Gen
eral Wood of military control the state
militiamen were ordered to Indiana
Harbor and East Chicago. . :
.The force under General Wood Is
regarded as sufficient to enforce his
directions that nP"WI(: meetings or
assemblages be h"eld and forbidding
parades and demonstrations against
the authorities. .
Picketing by strikers at the various
plants will not be stopped, Capt.
