August 1, 1899: “Newsboys Plan Another Meeting”

Newsboys Plan Another Meeting

There was little external evidence yesterday of a continuance of the newsboys’ strike, although the officers of the new union which was formed on Sunday evening maintain that the strike is still on and that the two evening papers will not be sold until generally the terms demanded are granted. Notwithstanding these assertions the papers were to be bhad all over the city yesterday and little boys and big boys alike sold them without molestation. An attempt will be made to get Cooper Union for a meeting of newsboys and newsdealers to be held on Wednesday evening.
