The men at woik there were called out and the strikers niov ed on to the establishment of Jumcs Simpson & Co. The firm fearing trouble dismissed tlui men and closed its doors.

The - officers swung their clubs nnd bent their way out of tho crowd A striker enguRod Mr. fleering but was beaten off. One of the patrolmen finally se cured it rifle nnd when he came out and faced tho crowd with It there was a great scattering. From Geering's, tho strikers hurried away toward tho property of Knlp t'cher and Mans, but that raid was checked by a squad of police. The latter formed across tho street, and, marching forward with night sticks drawn, forced the crowd back. Gerald Mlstell, a young striker, hurled a rock ut tho police and was placed under arrest. Tho crowd tried to rescue him und to the number of several hundred followed tho at resting ofllcers to the prison, hooting at them as they trailed along. An attempt was made to or ganic?, n second movement against Mr. Oeoring's works, but only n. few volun teers were found who were willing to tuko part in It. At noon, the men nt work for (jeering went out, and the place was closed up. At some of tho places raided, some of the strikers familiar with tho ma chinery turned the steam on at full force, and It was an effective weapon in driving the workmen out. The strikers met at Riverside again at 4 o'clock in the afternoon to receive reports of the several shop committees. Nearly every one of the latter reported thai their particular shop would agree lo the wage concessions demanded if all the other shops would. The conser vative leaders strongly advised tho strikers lo 'avoid violence and dis avowed the attacks made on the mill during th' morning. If the dyers strike Is prolonged, other branches of tho great silk industries which center in and around Patcrson will be affected.
