A Dime for Czolgosz

     The 1,600 employes [sic] of the Westinghouse airbrake works, Wilmerding, made up a purse yesterday by putting in 10 cents each and $15 from the office clerks and ordered a handsome floral piece which was sent to Canton last night. When a Pole in the foundry name Miley Postos was asked for a dime he said he would rather give a dime to assist Czolosz. He was immediately hustled out of the shop and the foreman notified that if he returned all the men would leave.
