Kilflea Dog Soap does the job!
June 5, 1910: The battle lines are becoming increasingly firm in the metalworkers’ strike and the attempt to unionize Los Angeles’ foundries, rolling mills and machine shops.
The Times says: "There is no secret about the laborite plan. [San Francisco union official Andy J.] Gallagher and other trouble-making bosses of the metal trades announced the programme. For fear that some of the local agitators might prove too soft-hearted, the work of unionizing the foundries and machine shops has been intrusted to the San Franciscans.
“These fellows boast that there will be a concerted move tomorrow. They say peaceful measures are useless; that Los Angeles must taste of bloodshed and riot before she yields to the labor-union anarchists.”
