ABSTRACT
The article recounts the day when a number of cowboys along the Canadian River called a strike asking for a 50-cents-a-day increase in wages. Before long, 325 cowboys from 7 Panhandle ranches had joined the strike. By April 3, 1883, some ranchers had raised wages to $1.68 a day. The strike eventually died, as the big ranchers knew it would.
