SPOKANE, Nov. 6. A hunger
strike, similar to that resorted to by
the suffragettes of England, began
with the two hundred lnductrlal
Workers in jail this morning. They
were convicted of dicorderly conduct
for street speaking, and given bread
and water twice daily because they
refused to work. This is the first
hunger strike ever made in the Unit
ed States, and tho strikers declare
they will 'not eat until given sub
stantial food. It 1b thought that the
authorities may try,a stomach pump
if found necessary.
Louis Scamenel weakened in his
resolution of abstinence, and volun
teered to work for food, whereupon
he was kicked about his cell by his
companions and denounced as a shirk
vand traitor.
Habeas corpus proceedings are to
be started in the remainder of the
cases, according to Viccnt St. John,
Chicago, counsel of the Workers.
Three damage stilts have already
been started by them against the
city. ,
There were fewer arrests made
this morning, but the police are
showing uo signs of relenting.
