Today's Winnipeg Citizen headline: Strike Unjustified; Citizens Must Stand firm

The Citizen is paraphrasing Arthur Meighan, Manitoba M.P. and federal Minister of the Interior, who is in Winnipeg. The citizen quotes him as saying "It is up to the citizens of Winnipeg to stand firm and resist efforts made here to overturn proper authority"

The Western Labor News of May 24, 1919 tells strikers "Don't worry and don't work."
