UNION & RECORDER.
OUR AUGUSTA LETTER.
Augusta, Ga., June 19th, 1886.
Augusta lias had a genuine strike
tAlast. The weavers in the Algernon
.JEill addressed a petition to Superin
tendent W. J. Woodward, requesting
riie removal of tlieir overseer, a Mr.
.ItfcGaw, on the grounds that he was
iicyust and tyranical. This occurred
-kaaflt Friday morning. Mr. Woodward
' >rrmediately referred the petition to
President I’hinizy, who gave it his
/ireful consideration. When the
«-i.ock struck one—-at the very time the
X’ resident was preparing lii* answer
u. vi ting his euqfioyees to confer wit 1
j. m—the hands left the Mill and de-
*-dlared themselves on a strike. That
iijfternoon the Presidents of all the
'•Jills held a meeting and issued a C’r-
vr. liar to their respective employees,
notifying them that if the Alger- o i
Mill weavers did not return to work
L>y 12 a. m. on Monday, every mill in
- iie city would shut down that same
«Lay. The weavers were determined,
'/.'hey said they would never return as
long as McGaw remained in the mill
ms overseer. But what a terrible al-
native was presented to them:
vt&ey must either return, or be tl e
paeans of throwing 4,000 employees
;tof work, upon whom were depend-
< it at least G,000 souls, making fully
ft 1900 people suffer for the actions of
-1*5 or 40. Things looked gloomy. The
I rospect of nearly one third of a city’s
,j.>3pulation suffering for the necess -
tiles of life is enough to arouse the
s ympathy of any one. So, prominent
citizens soon interested themselves in
t?; is matter, and tried to reconcile the
* differences between the President •
•r.Jid the hands. But all in vain. At
i .bis juncture of affairs Mr. McGaw
*vj,me to the relief of both parties by
**sodering his resignation to Saqf.
Woodward, which, owing to the pecu
liar circumstances, was reluctantly
«ccepted. The hands were notified of
fact, and returned to work at 12
''dock on Monday, the Presidents re-
- eluded their orders to shut do vn. and
harmony once more prevailed be-
J w>-en labor and capital.
Mr. McGaw's course is highly spo-
L ii> of by tlie community. Rather
rJ sail have 10.000 people thrown upon
riie caUl charities of the world, he
nt illingly placed himself upon the al-
y.x.r of sacrifice. The complaint of the
employees against this gentleman
as vuite a surprise to him, as no lon-
_r i* than last Christmas they presen>
.him with a diamond pin as a token
off their esteem. The imn.ession pre
vails that it was a movement on the
pitc-fc of the Knights of Labor for rec-
M>;‘t>titiori. The people at largo also
condemn the hasty action of the Mill
.' residents in deciding to shut down
51 the Mills because a few weavers in
»?ae small Factory were oil a strike,

• - t certain information w'hich justified
