The dramatic end of the strike which is well on its third week, came today. Loyal Veterans Denounce Strikers. WINEPEG.—(By the Associated Press.)—Over 4000 veterans of the Great War, including scores of officers and hundreds of union men, after standing V at "attention" in the auditorium this afternoon singing "God Save the King," pledged themselves and their resources to maintain law and order in Win nepeg, and to stamp out bolshevism and anarchy from the forces of Winnepeg labor. Resolutions were passed demanding that the authorities immediately arrest and punish all persons responsible for the strike situation in Win nepeg and who have attempted to overthrow the constitutional government and the deportation of "all undesirable aliens" was also urged. Strike Leaders Begging For Protection. Rumors are current here today that the strike committee was consider ing the advisability of calling off the sympathetic strike, in view of the action by the war veterans. Mayor Gray was informed that several thousand soldiers intended to march to the trades and labor council and force an entrance, if necessary and demand that all aliens be ousted from Winnepeg unions. Labor leaders who have publicly and agressively attempted to combat every federal, provincial and municipal attempt to restore tranquility in Winnepeg were begging protection, it was learned at the city hall. The city today took over the distribution of milk and was arranging to provide bread distribution if necessary. Paris Strike Situation Better, PARIS.—(By the Associated Press.)—In competent circles here optimism prevailed this morning regarding the strike here. Hopes are expressed that .trouble between the unions and employes will soon be settled. I. W. W. Found Not Guilty.

Boston and Portland firms were well represented and bidding was very keen. The bulk of the wool sold was purchased by Ross Howard for the Columbia Basin Wool Warehouse of Portland, Ore., he having shipped three cars yester day from Lewiston and Pomeroy. Owing to the mild winter, the wool was of excellent quality, the shrink age being unusually light and most of the wools containing a large amount of staple length, enabling the buyers to pay top prices. The prices paid ropred from 35 to 46 cents, with a limVÆ'd number of fancy clips bring ing as high as 46 1-4 cents. Growers had anticipated receiving as low as 25 to 35 cents so are highly pleased with quotations prevailing the last last few days. Miss Letitia Frizell, buyer for Ross Howard, enjoys the distinction of be ing the first lady wool buyer to buy in the Lewiston country. Miss Frizell returned a few days ago from a trip through the upper Salmon river and central Idaho section, having pur chased several thousand fleeces of wool. I is estimated that the Salmon river country will produce about 260,000 fleeces of wool, the larger per cent of which will be shipped through the Lewiston gateway by boat to Portland, which gives advantageous freight rates to Portland, the wool market of the west.—Lewiston Trib une.
