LOYAL WAR VETERANS END
WINNEPEG'S GREAT STRIKE
The great strike at Winnepeg, Manitoba, which threatened to overthrow
authorized government in portions of Canada and turn the dominion over to
holsnivists, is expected to come to a sudden stop as the result of determined
action, by loyal veterans of the great world war, who took a stand today for
the government, pledged themselves to maintain law and order and demanded
the deportation of all undesirable aliens. 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
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.
SEATTLE.—(By the Associated Press.)—James Bruce, alleged member
of the Industrial Workers of the World, was found by a jury here today, not
guilty of criminal anarchy. The charge placed against Bruce is a result
of his activity during the general strike here.
ROSS HOWARD, OF MOSCOW, A
HEAVIER BUYER OF WOOL
AT LEWISTON, LATELY
The past few days were perhaps the
most active in wool dealing in local
fields in many years. 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
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
