Such was the answer given in Munlc
" lpal Court yesterday, when A. H. Price,
.an L W. "W., charged with vagrancy,
made his own plea. Price was arrested
several days ago at the Northwest Steel
Company's plant by Sergeant Ben
"Wade, where,. It was said, he attempt
ed to Incite the strikers to violence.
This was denied by Price at yester
day's hearing. He said, that he had
more than $20, that he worked all last
Summer and Fall, and that he was still
for sale as a laborer.
"Tea, but you have no regular ocu
pation or trade?" persisted Deputy City
"I used to have."
What was it?"
"I was a skilled glassblowe'r."
"Why not work at It?" '
TVelL I had to quit. A fellow made
an improvement on a machine, and it
took all my skill away from me.
Judge Langguth upbraided Price for
manifesting an Interest in the steel
strike, when the strikers themselves
had asked that the X. W. W. be kept
away, lest the radlcallsts and direct
actlonlsts create trouble by sugges
tion. "You have no business now,
seemingly, save that of making trou
ble," declared the court.
"Trouble is the mainspring of prog

"It Is not," decreed the court, "and,

FOOD TRUST CHARGE
Dan Kellatfer Wants Grocers'
MISCONDUCT IS ALLEGED
the knowledge and consent of the offi
cers of, the association.
Combine Is Alleged.
Mr. Kellaher declares that the plain
tiffs are entitled to an Inspection and
examination of all the books and rec
ords of the corporation.
The allegation la further made that
number of the officers and others
have formed what Is known as a
United Grocers' Buying Combine" to
bull the food market. As a result of
the manipulation of this buying com
bine it is declared that advertising in
the magazine published by the Grocers
Association has been dropping off so
that it is no longer a paying concern.
The action will come up for hearing
before Circuit Judge Davis Saturday

to Bull Markets Financial
Management Is Criticised.
"Apparent irregularities" In the con
duct of the affairs of the Grocers' and
Merchants' Association, and the forma'
tion on the part of officers and certain
others of an organization for the pur
pose of "bulling" the market on food,
are some of tne allegations mado by
Dan Kellaher In an amended petition
filed yesterday in connection with the
action to have the association dissolved
and a receiver appointed to handle the
assets and liabilities.
Mr. Kellaher, who represents himself
to be a stockholder in the Grocers' and
Merchants' Association, says he Is
bringing the action on behalf of him
self and others similarly situated. The
officers of the association, consisting
of Adam Emlg, president; Carl Wal-
strom, secretary; D. J. Van Scyoc. treas
urer, and Robert G. Duncan, assistant
secretary, are made party to tha suit.
Insolvency Declared Near.
The representation is made in th
amended petition that the association
lost In 1915 about $1041.39, and In 191
$1673.24, together with other losses and
expenditures, and that practically noth
ing now remains to pay claims of credi
"Said losses are increasing rapidly
and the corporation Is almost Insolvent,
or In imminent danger of becoming so,"
Mr. Kellaher declares.
The amended complaint expresses the
belief that there is an overissue of
stock in that the concern is only en
titled to issue 200 shares, and that 406
were outstanding on February 4, 1916.
The allegation is also made that the
stock book and all transfers of stock
have not been properly kept, and that
such Irregularities were carried on with
day, when merchants founrj that their
concessions to the Parent-Teacher cir
cles In the way of ppclal prices at
