We refuse to accept arch a babyish rea son aa they have given. We are trill ing to go back to work If the rut ia absolutely nceeseary and la made to fall on all alike. The labor to this city cannot afford to work for th'' wages that are paid in aome of the country mills. Mr. Smiih. our super intendent, aaya we will be out cne year and that there wfll be ereat Buf fering among ns. There may be suf fering among ua, aa there la now. for that matter, but If we submit to what they wish us to -»ork for we wlli Buf fer almost es much as we would were we at work. I have been making SO cents a day ard they cut me to 70 cents. My boy was cut from $1.25 oar day t p 85 cents—4o cent* oil the day. Can you expect us ta submit to such wholesale slaughter as this? Think cf it! A cut of 40 cents on the day. it is an outrage.” Mr. Ed Fleming says his wa-i’n have been cut as much as 65 cents on the day. and that there are many more who have been cut as much or more. Another operative in the crowd tyith whom the reporter talked said his wa ges had been cut twenty-five cents a day—f om one dollar to seventy-five cents. And *o on and so on All the mil! operatives seem to have the same feeling on the subject, and what Mr. Fleming says will cover about all that was told) The Herald representa tive.

Demonstration Against Mr. Smith. Reporter# are aased to make a state ment of the diunccititrlitlon against Mr. Joel Smith. It occurred early In il*e day. There were a large numbe - of peaple gathered at the King mill. fTliey were being addressed by a speaknr who was trying to convince them of the necessity of peaceful procecdura. The speaker, however, unconsciously enough, began to utter truths that went straight home. The crowd became more aogry than ever. It was then that the demonstration against Mr. Smith was made. It seems that a number of operatives do not Ilk’ Mr, Smith. They maintain that he is not considerate to them and has been ug ly In his talk to them. Some of them started toward him with the avowed Intention of offering him bodily harm. Mr. E. It. Cranflll, one of the most intelligent of the leaders among tb" mill men, who is conservative and careful, was told of the demonstration. He hurried to the plfco, but found that other conservative men had influenced the angry ooeratlves not to go further toward Mr. Smith. Mr. Cranflll made the effort then to guide the men aealrst giving away to angry passions. Earnestly wnd persistently he argued among them and induced them to move away and go to their homes. Mr. Crnn- j fill performed an Important duty at n critical I would be unjust to ssy that the operatives contemplated j or eoatsmpiais doing wrong, but pen- . pit’s passions oitsu • arise to th# un- j estStrsllAU* point wul Mr. CranSil's | iaflustwa brought to been .at n tints wlksn airs operatives were thor- .
