REVOLVERS AND KNIVES ;
USED IN CALUMET RIOT
Calumet, Mich., Oct 21 A riot oo
curred in the Red Jacket copper district
today as a result of an attempt by mine
guards to break up a procession of
strikers and strike sympathisers.
'The guards were better armed than
th paraders. but the latter had them
heavily outnumbered. Revolvers were
drawn and several shots fired. Knives
were used freely. A . number of the
guards were knocked down . with the
heavy staffs of the flags carried in the
procession. Ten persons were seriously
and many , more slightly wounded. In
the crowd were many women, some of
whom suffered severe bruises.
The militia finally dispersed the
crowd and made 14 arrests.
