GIRL LEADS STRIKERS IN
FIGHT AGAINST BIG TRUST
LOUreVtLLB, Ky.. April 21.—
One girl, and not a very big girl at
that, accomplished what Wall
street, the legislature and govern
ment investigators failed to do,
when she forced the American To
bacco Co. to shut two immense
stemmeries and practically close a
plug tobacco factory.
£his girl Is Lulu Spaulding, "the
gWI in blue," who led the striking
stommers of Louisville. She beat [
the trust to a standstill and landed
a blow at the financial center of
the big concern.
June 15 a law Imposing a tax,
of 2 cents per pound on the manu
facture of plug tobacco becomes
effective. The trust bent every ef
fort to manufacture as many plugs
as possible before June 15, but the
1 strike has blasted this hope. Not
nNyiy plugs are being made.
LuW Spauldlng lives with her
mother and sister In-law, In a
West Louisville alley home. The
women have worked for years In I
the stemmery. Miss Spauldlng, a j
frail, delicate girl of 21, plain and
unassuming, has a chin that de
notes firmness and determination.
Miss Spaulding sees victory for
the cause she has championed. She
Is the leader of 2500 striking men,
women and children, arrayed
against the might of a great trust
with millions behind It.
Like a Joan d'Arc she has led
her army, appointing lieutenants,
perfecting her organization and
carrying on her work uncounseled.
For I_> years she worked in the
stemmery, being forced to leave
school to help support the family
When she went to the plant
Lulu Spalding was n red-cheeked,
healthy child. Today her face
shows the mark of the dust-filled
rooms and her frame la no longer
robust. The tobacco trust has
taken Its toll.
She says the strikers will win
because they represent right. "All

beings," she declared vehemently.

We couldn't pay rent add scarcely
had enough to eat,
"As I sat in that dust filled room
; the afternoon of the strike and
thought of tho warm, foul-smelling
water the dirty Wash tank, and the
six glrli who had fainted because
lof the hot room —remembering that
in one day last summer 75 women
fainted at work and were carried
Entrance 709 Riverside Avenue
from the stemmery room on
stretchers —I couldn't stand it any
longer. 1 jumped to my feet, cry
ing, 'Strike for your rights, girls.
"In a moment they were on their
feet and followed me out of the
room. We called out the boys and
m»n, and then, at the head of 500,
1 went to the colored stemmery.
"There I lumped upon a keg and
called to the workers to follow me.
'We'll follow the girl In blue,' they
said. That's where I got the name."

SANHPOINT, Idaho, April 22.—
Miss Nellie Pedwell and George M.
i Winne, a civil engineer, were ma
rooned all Sunday night long on
i Lake Pend dOreille because of
the breaking of the gas engine on
i Winne's launch. Winne tried to
paddle ashore, but the paddle
broke when they were still a con
siderable distance from land, and
they were again carried out into
the lake by the chilly night wind.
Charles E. Schaefer rescued them,
, finding Winne nearly frozen. The
' girl was in quite comfortable con
! dltion, as her companion had coy

MACLYN ARBUCKLE IN
A production which, for various
reasons, ought to make a special
appeal to Spokane audiences, will
be seen at the Auditorium com
mencing Sunday night, when "The
Roundup" will be presented for the
first time in this city. "The
"Roundup" has been one of the
genuine successes of the past sea
son in New York, and the charac
ter of the commendations given it
have been impressive. The play
has been called a melodrama, but
it Is said that the authors have
shown that big, thrMling melodrama
need not be marred by pseudo
heroics and patent sentiment. Thus,
there are indications that the play
as a play will merit the patronage
of local theatergoers. There are
other reasons why the engage
ment should be out of ths ordi
nary. Heading the big company
which has been appearing in "The
Roundup" since the original New
York production was made, is Mac
lyn Arbuckle, a player who has
won a most generous measure of
