MOB STONES I.W.W. SPEAKERSNew York, June 22.—A mob of over 500 stoned a delegation of I.W.W. men and women tonight when they attempted to speak from the parapet of the aqueduct in Tarrytown. A mounted detachment of fifteen police were rushed to the scene by Supt. Palmer at the demand of Chief of Police William J. Howles, of Tarrytown. His patrolmen found the crowd unmanageable.
The mounted men arrived too late to save the speakers. In the party were Leonard Abbott, Alexander Berkmann, Arthur Caron, Becky Edelson, Mary Yuster, Helen Goldblatt, and George Plunkett, the Cornell graduate.
