150 MEMBERS OF
I. W. W. ARRIVE IN CITY
Members of the I. W. W. to the number of 150 arrived in Salt Lake City at 1:15 o’clock this morning on a Western Pacific freight train. The men are from California and Nevada, and are a part of the general migration eastward that was the outgrowth of the Kelly’s army movement.
No trouble was experienced with the men here. They were received by a detail of special officers under Special Agent Thomas Burge of the railroad and were taken immediately to Tenth South on the right of way of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad, where they went into camp. The men had been expected for two nights past because of the telegraphic reports received here, and policemen were kept in waiting until the story that they were coming was disbelieved, and last night only the special officers were on hand.
