The first column on the front page has; "More Of The Lawrence Massacre" "Further Particulars as to the Pemberton Mills" "Graphic Descriptions of the Other Mills--Condition of the Operatives--Their Pay--Influx of Foreign Operatives, etc." with the coverage taking over half of the front page. This was concerning the collapse of the Pemberton Mills factory, considered one of the worse industrial calamities in American history in which 145 workers were killed.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
