April 30, 1887                             Saturday  Discontented Dagos 120 Italians at the F. G. O'Reilly and Co.'s camps near Nestoria on the Summitt divison [* division] of the DSS and A struck Wednesday night and requested tne contractors to h and  over the earth with a blue ribbon tied around it.  The contractors weren't in that business, however, and promptly summoned the sheriff of the county, detemined to get rid of the strikers at once and thus avoid any serious trouble.  The  sons of sunny Italy were hustled out of the camps by the sheriff's forces and escorted to the railway for shipment out of the country.  When they got to the train and realized that they were about to make the acquaintance of a cold and unfeeling world, with no other boodle to aid them than a pair of overalls with a number and tag attached, they weakened and begged to be allowed to return to camps and go to work again.  After some parleying this was granted and the dusky crowd returned to a man, picked up their tools and resumed the work of paving the way for the iron horse through the wilds of Baraga and Ontonagon counties.
