Gun battle on Kearny St. in 1901 -- what day? : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I've read that there was a daylight gun battle on Kearny Street between "special police" (hired goons) and strikers during the City Front Federation strike of July 30 to October 2, 1901.

Does anyone know the date and time of day of this incident?

I can only tell you in general what I know and that is that that gun battle occured sometime at the end of September in 1901
