Strike Sympathizers Make Raid on Non-Union Establishment.

New York, May 15.–Max Alheim, a baker of East New York, who did not close his bakery when the bakers recently went out on strike, was dragged from his bed by strike sympathizers and thrown into a vat of dough in the basement of his establishment.

He was so badly beaten that his removal to a hospital was necessary. The women raiders meanwhile attacked Mrs. Alheim and threw pailfuls of dough upon her. The police dispersed the raiders and arrested two of them.
