NEW YORK, APRIL 2. – The Post’s Cohoes special says the striking spinners are still obdurate : 2,000 booms are in operation. The second instalment of French–Canadians arrived last night. The Harmony mills deny being instrumental in this degradation . Open violence against the new comers is only supressed by fears of strong justice. Preparations for a gathering of strikers and mill operatives in general on Simon's Island, to-morrow afternoon, are on an extensive scale.
