APPENDIX Q

CITY OF SPOKANE

C. A. Fleming, City Clerk

Spokane, Wash., December 29, 1909.

Lieut. Col. W. R. Abercrombie, Fort George Wright.

Dear Sir:

I beg to inform you that at the meeting of the City Council held December 28, 1909, the following resolution was unanimously adopted:

Whereas, The City of Spokane recently suffered the experience of a determined and premeditated assault upon her laws by the organized forces of the I. W. W., in which the said I. W. W. attempted to subvert and overthrow the laws and ordinances of the said City of Spokane, and in the suppression of which disorder and law-breaking it was necessary that great numbers of the disorderly persons be arrested and confined under sentence of court, to an extent and number that completely overtaxed the capacity of the jail and other places of detention of said City; and,

“Whereas, The authorities of the Federal Garrison, Fort George Wright adjoining this City, the 2nd and 3rd Battalions of the 25th U. S. Infantry, under command of Lieut. Col. W. R. Abercrombie of the 25th Infantry, courteously granted to the City, upon the request of Mayor Pratt to the War Department, the privilege of confining so many of such disorderly persons as might be necessary in the places of detention in said Fort George Wright, where such persons were kept under the custody and control of the Police Officers of the City of Spokane; and,

“Whereas, The Federal Troops stationed at said garrison, by their soldierly bearing and correct deportment, their sympathy and moral support in the maintenance of good order, and by their constant example of orderly, law-abiding, sober and gentlemanly conduct at all times, greatly contributed to the aid of our Police Officers in handling a most serious situation, involving in large degree the great principle of law enforcement; and,

“Whereas, We desire to express our appreciation to the officers and soldiers of the Federal Garrison, Fort George Wright; now, therefore, be it

“Resolved, That the City Council do hereby tender to the enlisted men and officers of the 25th U. S. Infantry, for their services and their support, the thanks of the City of Spokane.”

Yours truly,

C. A. Fleming,
City Clerk.

Official:

Horace F. Sykes,

1st Lieut. 25th Infantry, Adjutant.
