Aug. 25, 1910: In vastly different ways, The Times and the Herald report the arrival of San Francisco labor leaders.

The Times said: "The worthies registered at the Hayward, and almost immediately the big boss who pulls the strings which make the deluded union puppets dance issued a call for a conference and a blanket order for beer. Last night the czar barred himself within his room and in reply to a telephoned inquiry concerning his business here, announced that he was "not talkin' to no reporters."

Coming up next month: San Francisco labor leaders file a libel suit against Times Editor and General Manager Gen. Harrison Gray Otis and Assistant General Manager Harry Chandler.
