Daily Mirror No.4 NEWS BULLETIN Price - One Penny Saturday May 8th. 1926 OUR LEADING ARTICLE UNDISMAYED. The order of the day is still the simple and historic injunction to "Carry On". Great Britain has overthrown all the tyrannies, which have declared themselves in varying forms in its crowded island story. It will not falter now. It believes the hearts of trade union workers to be sound. It sees into what grievous errors they have been led. And in pursuing all lawful means to preserve its existence, it looks with some compassion on those of its organised workers, whose misfortune it is to be the victims of a dictatorship so subtly erected in their ranks. DISORDERLY SCENES. Disturbances occurred in the East End of Glasgow on Thursday. At an early hour in the morning five hundred miners marched from the neighbourirg districts of Newton and Cambuslang to the tramway depot in Ruby Street to prevent student volunteers who were sleeping in the depot from coming out with the Corporation cars. On arrival at the depot the miners, assisted by some of the tramway pickets attempted to storm the premises. A large body of police was rushed to the scene and charged the crowd with drawn batons. The miners, who were armed with stones and other missiles, were dispersed. A number of arrests were made. Many looters were taken into custody. The windows of many premises, especially public houses and boot-shops, were smashed and large quantity of liquor, footwear and other goods was stolen. Arrests numbered sixty-six. Police-sergeant McLintock was struck by a heavy stone during the course of the disturbance and was taken to the Royal Infirmary with severe injuries. MOSCOW'S EMISSARY FOR LONDON. The Socialist and Workers' Central Committee at Warsaw have resolved to support the English miners and to prevent the export of coal to England. The Socialist Deputy Sinczyk is leaving for London, savs a Central News message. 1000 'BUSMEN READY. One thousand trained men were available at the L.G.O.C. Chiswick depot yesterday and circular route bus services were established as follows: Aldwych - Ealing - Hammersmith - Chiswick and Victoria - Charing Cross - Piccadilly - Oxford Circus - Edgware-road - Cricklewood - Golders-Green. NEWSPAPER WORKERS RETURN Ninety per cent of Newspaper workers have resumed duty in Plymouth. GENERAL SITUATION. The fourth day of the General Strike found the Nation as a whole firm in its resolution not to be intimidated. Reports from all over the country show that essential transpost services have been improved. Although there has been rioting in parts of London and in the industrial centres there is now no doubt that the result of the general strike will be the triumph of constitutionalism. Volunteer workers in thousands are offering their services and every day the number of trains, trams and buses is increasing. The general public who are bearing the many present inconveniences with fortitude, refuse to listen to rumours which are being deliberately spread by extremists. This campaign is now being countered by the forty newspapers now published, thus showing that the attempt to destroy the freedom of the press has failed. The Daily Mirror appeared with pictures yesterday. ENGINEERS OUT: FACTORIES WORKING. Numbers of engineers came out yesterday, but the movement is apparently not unanimous and practically all factories are working. LABOUR AND BUCKROSE. The result of the Buckrose election is held among Ministerialists as an indication of confidence in the Government. Major Braithwaite, the new Conservative M.P. for Buckrose, was expected to win, and Sir. H. Verney,the Liberal, it was thought, would poll very well -- as, in fact, he did -- but nobody expected that Mr. Laycock, the Labour candidate, would do so badly. He secured only 2191 votes. In 1913, on a much smaller poll, Labour had 3178 votes. STRIKE BREVITIES. Concerning rumours that there has been shooting in various parts of the country the Exchange Telegraph Company is able to state officially that not a single shot has been fired since the strike started. A privately owned bus plying between Liverpool Street and Victoria was protected with wire and boarding, the dnver being encased in wire netting of fine mesh. The Polar airship Norge, says Reuter, passed over Bear Island midway between the Norwegian coast and Spitzbergen at 10.30 p.m. on Thursday. All news messages are from Reuters and other agencies.
