W., captured in a raid near here today, were marched into the public square at Weirton, forced to kiss the American flag and were then driven out of town by pdlice and deputies. Seven others, suspected of being the leaders, after kissing the flag, were taken to the county jail at New Cumberland, where they will be held pending investigation by federal authorities. The raid was carried out, without any serious disorder. Authorities of Hancock county and Weirton had been searching for the rendezvous of the alleged I. W. W. since several days ago when there appeared on the sidewalks here written threats that “the I. W. W. will get you.” Last night the meeting place of the men wanted was located in an old barn on the Hancock county road south of here. It was surrounded by heavily armed deputies and a few entered the bam. The few men in the barn sought to escape without success.    ' A search of the place resulted in the finding of a large quantity of "red” literature—half a ton, it was said—in which the flag of anarchy was extolled and the prediction made that the extremists woul^ rule the world. ;
