August 2, 1899: “Three Newsboys Arrested for Assault”

Three Newsboys Arrested for Assault.

About a hundred newsboys assembled last night at Fourteenth street and Sixth avenue and hooted at the wagon men who tried to sell Worlds and Journals. Perry Walton and Edward Openshaw, who were with the wagons, were attacked by the boys and roughly handled. Three policemen arrested three of the boys, Orlando Baldechar, Sebastian De Leo and Tony Lessaro.
