March 12, 1887 Saturday  Gone to Work The vagrants gathered in by the night watchman at 1:00 am Tuesday morning, together with the three who escaped them but were captured later, were brought before recorder Meads Tuesday for trial. When asked why there was any reason why sentence should not be passed upon them, the seven, through their spokesman, stated that they had come up from Menominee to obtain work on the Sault branch of the DSS and A but did not go down to Sault Junction because of the strike. When they heard Monday afternoon that the strike was over they went to G.W. Rule's house to see if he could get work for them on the line, but did not find him at home. They had no money so they were forced to pass the night as best they could. As they pleaded a desire to work the recorder called in Mr. Rule, and finding from him that the men had called at the house when he was not at home, on his assurance that he could get them work at the Junction if they wanted it, recorder Mead let them off and Mr. Rule sent them down the line on the noon train rejoicing.
