These by crowds whose acts the leaders disclaimed

  • "Here," said the foreman, motioning him, when he came in.  "You
    take this car out in a few minutes."

    Hurstwood climbed up on the platform in the gloomy barn and
    waited for a signal.  He was nervous, and yet the thing was a
    relief.  Anything was better than the barn.

    On this the fourth day of the strike, the situation had taken a
    turn for the worse.  The strikers, following the counsel of their
    leaders and the newspapers replica oakley sunglasses, had struggled peaceably enough.
    There had been no great violence done.  Cars had been stopped, it
    is true, and the men argued with.  Some crews had been won over
    and led away, some windows broken, some jeering and yelling done;
    but in no more than five or six instances had men been seriously
    injured.  These by crowds whose acts the leaders disclaimed.

    Idleness, however, and the sight of the company, backed by the
    police, triumphing, angered the men.  They saw that each day more
    cars were going on cheap oakleys, each day more declarations were being made by
    the company officials that the effective opposition of the
    strikers was broken.  This put desperate thoughts in the minds of
    the men.  Peaceful methods meant, they saw, that the companies
    would soon run all their cars and those who had complained would
    be forgotten.  There was nothing so helpful to the companies as
    peaceful methods.
    All at once they blazed forth fake oakley sunglasses, and for a week there was storm and
    stress.  Cars were assailed, men attacked, policemen struggled
    with, tracks torn up, and shots fired, until at last street
    fights and mob movements became frequent, and the city was
    invested with militia.

    Hurstwood knew nothing of the change of temper.

    "Run your car out fake oakleys," called the foreman, waving a vigorous hand at
    him.  A green conductor jumped up behind and rang the bell twice
    as a signal to start.  Hurstwood turned the lever and ran the car
    out through the door into the street in front of the barn.  Here
    two brawny policemen got up beside him on the platform--one on
    either hand.
