LABOR MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
LABOR MEETINGS. One Union Declines to Boycott Meat Peddlers. The efforts of the Butchers' Union to have all the labor organizations of the city boycott meat peddlers have not been successful in every case. The matter was brought before the meeting of the Harnessmakers' last ' night, and after a long discussion they decided to have nothing to do with the boycott -- They give as their grounds for refusing to boycott the peddlers that the organization requesting them to take such action is not a bona-fide labor union, and that it is an association formed for the' purpose of crushing men of small capital. The Boycott Committee reported that during the week it has induced nine country and eleven city firms to withdraw their patronage from W. Davis &amp; Son, the firm which, it is alleged, is abusing the apprentice system. Among the local firms reported as having withdrawn their custom from the boycotted manufacturers are W. Cosbie and Herman Gray. "Colonel" Willey's Latest. "Colo...

AFTER THE HONEYMOON, [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
AFTER THE HONEYMOON, A Marriage in Baste With a Swlfl-Fol- lowing Repentance. . On the 10th of last March, says the Oakland Daily Evening Tribune, the papers recorded a romantic marriage— Cora, aged 17 years, the daughter of Mrs. Bell of 2206% Fillmore street, San Francisco, being united in matrimony on the tug-bot-fSktna, beyond the heads, Thomas Smith, a real estate dealer of 1028 Market street. The reason for this unusual mode of procedure was because Cora was under the legal age and a license could not, therefore, be obtained without the consent of her parents, and as she was very much enamored of Smith she consented when he proposed the scheme of being married on the high seas. On their return to land they went to San Jose, and It would be expected that, considering the circumstances, the union would be an exceptionally happy one, at least during the honeymoon. - But such was not the case, according to the young bride's story, for her husband, she charges, illtreated and half-s...
