There seems to be every Indication
that tho riot va3 the result of a pre-arranged
plan to Involve the would-bo

start. Among the leaders of tho trouble
was a man named McQueen and an
other named Gallcano, the former an

This morning Chairman McGrath,
who has held the strikers In leash
since he first obtained control on the
second day of the strike, was on hand
and presided. He spoke, so did Mc
Queen and Galleano, and the latter
worked his countrymen Into a frenzy.
Then McQueen leaped into control of
the meeting. He called for a -ote on
the question of calling for a general
strike of all branches of the silk trade.
All voted In favor, and a committee was
appointed to consider means for bring
ing the silk workers out. Galleano was
one of this committee: It gathered
amid a babel of tongue3 nnd a scene of
confusion. Five minutes later Galleano
emerged from the group shouting some
thing in Italian. Instantly a. mob had
formed about him. Down the street
rushed the Italians and then the other
foreigners and a moment later the mob
led by Galleano swept down Belmont
A quarter of a mile down Belmont
avenue stands the Columbia mill, a silk
ribbon factory. The doors had been
locked when the mob appeared but they
were forced open and with the crash ot
the doors came a volley of stones' which
riddled the windows In the front of the
President Grossgebauer telephoned
for the police. Stones rained into the
office and flew about his head. Twenty
young women on the first floor stood at
bay and threatened to fight and the
weavers on the second floor ran down
to their aid. William Westerfleld, the
leader of the ribbon workers' strike
eight years ago 'took command. He di
rected those In the place to leave and
denounced the anarchists.
Bresci's .Old Comrade.
AVhen the operatives were out of the
Columbia" the mob swept down Bel
mont avenue. Several members or the
group of anarchists, Bresci's old com
rades, ylth Galleano at their head,
were In 'the leud. A half mile march
brought tho mob to the Cedar Cliff mill,
where they stayed until all were out.
Just beyond the Cedar Cliff Is the
Rynewarner mill. Tho doors were
burst open there nnd the men and
girls were found ready to go out and
were waiting for orders from the New
York office. AA'hen this was seen the
rioters did nothing but wait until the
mill was closed. The next place visit
ed wns a cotton braid factory. It
seemed to make no difference to tho
mob whether It was In any way con
nected with the silk trude or not, The
women became hysterical us the howl
ing rioters climbed In windows and
burst In the doors. Mr. Rhynhardt,
the owner, ordered his employees to
quit for the day.
The mob rushed through the cot
ton works and did much damage; then
poured on down the street to Bumford
Brothers' mill In Cliff street, Here
Putrolmen Robinson, Sweetmau, Keyes
nnd Detective Magle hud taken a stand.
The four faced the mob for five min
utes, telling them that the employes
hud gone out by the rear door and tho
works were closed down.
Over the main door hung a sign
reading; "Dyers Helpers AVanted."
There was a rush and men eaped on
tho shoulders of others and tore It
down. Some one threw a brick through
11 window, and stones ruined against
the side of the mill and windows In a
perfect shower. Fiom the mill volleys
were hurled at the officers and all four
were struck several times,
A section of the mob made for the
Bam ford homo close by. The police
sought to heud them off and did so,
but a shot was fired and a bullet went
through Robinson's tight arm. It
staggered him and as he was regaining
his feet a Jugged rock hit him on the
head laying open the scalp. Supported
by his comrades Robinson was taken
to tho llamford home. The remaining
three drove back the mob from tho
house and the attuck on the mill was
renewed.. The young women In tho
mill tried to get out and wero driven
back but escnped by the rear,
' Patrol Wagons Arrive.
' Martha Ifuyser was struck by a rock
und one of her arms badly hurt. A re
porter who was In the mill was hit on
tho head with a stono and I1I1 scalp
laid open. The mob swarmed Into tho
mill nnd saw that no one remained,
but still those on the outside kept up
the bombardment. The mill would
have been wrecked Inside as well as
outside had not 11 patrol wagon loaded
with officers charged through tho mob
on Cliff street. Rocks rnlncd down on
It nnd none of the officers escaped.
Patrolman Irving Post Haw tt inttn hurl
a rock and fired, tho bullet striking the
rioter In the neck. Before tho officers
could got to tho man ho was hauled Into"
the mob nnd hurried away. With re
volvers drawn, the officers quickly de
ployed nnd the mob fell back. A block
away, Galleano again appeared nnd
led tho mob through Temple street to
Pclgram & Myers' mill, where the em
ployes were compelled to come out.
Flushed with success, the mob pushed
adross tho Main street bridge to tho
New Jersey Silk company's establish
ment, where tho employes Avcro driven
out. ' At Levy's mill, nt River and
Bridge streets, tho manager met the
mob at 'the door and assured the leaders
that the employes were preparing to
AVhen tho mill was emptied, tho
strikers moved on. They passed
through River street to the Laurel, the
Empire and the Augusta mills, Avhere
only Patrolmen Fields and Titus were
on duty and were powerless against the
mob. Tho managers of tho three mills
had determined to empty' their mills,
and two of them did so, but the Augus
ta mill was still full, although shut
down. The mob found this out, and
burst In. They found themselves face
to face Avlth the women of the mill,
led by Mrs. Parker, determined to
stand their ground. The women wero
thrust aside and driven out of the mill,
amidst the most foul abuse.
A Plucky Policeman.
Tho Hall mill, which shelters four
silk working firms, was the next point
of attack. A single policeman guarded
the main entrance. Ho was ordered to
stand aside and on refusing was at
tacked. He drew his revolver and be
gan to fire, tiora Salvlno, an Italian
24 years old, who lives and works In
Hackensack, received the first bullet,
which penetrated both lungs. Tho mob
drew back and the officer retained his
post in the doorway. Several shots
were fired at him but none took effect.
He replied, filing directly into the crowd
until his weapon was empty when live
more uniformed men and one In plain
clothes came on a run through Fulton
street. The mob kept on firing and
the officers charged, firing AVhen tho
strikers broke and ran. Spectators say
that fully one hundred shots were fired.
Salvlno was left behind and was taken
to the hospital. One hundred and fifty
hats were picked up in the street after
ward which were lost In the scramble
to get away. No doubt that several of
the rioters were hurt. It is about this
time that Mayor Hlnchcllffe called on
the firemen for aid and men were de
tailed from each company and armed
and during the afternoon rendered ef
ficient service. The shooting seemed
to scatter the rioters but it was not
long before a dense mob had formed
again, thl3 time about the Gaede mill
on north Straight street where there
was a crowd of 2,000. Halt of them
were rioters and the rest onlookers. The
mill was bombarded and before the
mob stopped there was not a whole
window in the building.
Reporter Badly Injured.
Harry Harris, a reporter on the
Morning Call was at this point. He
was armed with a revolver and had a
camera with which he attempted to
take pictures, standing on a stoop a
short distance down the street. Ills
act ot training the camera was seen
and he wns warned to desist. A
moment later a rain of stones fell
about him and he was knocked down.
As he fell men rushed on hlin and he
was kicked and beaten. He drew his
revolver and tried to use It, but It
jammed and wns kicked from his hand.
A man grabbed It and fired at Harris,
tho bullet entering his chest. He has
a slight chance of recovery. By this
time the mill was emptied of the oper
atives and this practically ended the
rioting for the day, after all of the
mills had closed down. During the day
from time to time the wounded have
been carried to the hospitals. Besides
those whose names can be given, It Is
certain that many more were hurt.
This afternoon the anarchists, who
seemed to be In command were openly
threatening that a policeman's "life
would pay for each wounded rioter.
Tho police tonight are tired, sore and
angry and they say that a resumption
of the rioting In the morning will find
them prepared to shoot to kill. The
mill owners say they will resume work
In tho morning and will hold the city
and county responsible for all result
