Pounded the Boy Who Wouldn’t Strike
Middletown, Conn., May 11.–Eighteen boy quillers in Starr Mills of the Russell Manufacturing Company struck today for a raise in wages from $3 to $3.50 per week and went out. The one boy who would not go was pounded until he did. The weavers were forced to pay off, as no quills were ready. It is thought that all will be at work Monday, as the strike is not upheld by the boys’ parents.
