17 Cotton Mills Bring $20,000,000
F. K. Rupprecht of  New York Acquires the Big Knight Properties in New England.
Buys as an Individual
Concern Founded Seventy Years Ago by Two Brothers in Rhode Island.
Special to the New York Times
Providence, Sept, 17. – The sale of all the B. B. & R. Knight properties to Frederick K. Rupprecht of New York was announced tonight by Webster and C. Prescott Knight, members of the firm. Rumors have been afloat for some time that the Knight properties, which include seventeen different plants in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, were to be sold, the story among the textile men being that the probable purchaser was the United Textile Company of New York. According to the statement issued by the Knights tonight, however, the United has no part in the deal. Mr. Rupprecht, who is affiliated with the Consolidated Textile Company, figures in the transaction as an individual. No statement was given as to the price paid for the properties, but well informed mill men put it at about $20,000,000. The mill properties, real estate, farm lands, buildings, houses for employees, good-will and brands and all quick assets owned by B. B. & R. Knight go with the capital stock, which was the main item of purchase. The Knights were incorporated two years ago for $12,000,000, of which $3,000,000 was preferred. Mill men say that the properties are worth much more. Mr. Rupprecht will take possession by Oct. 1. The products of the Knight organization will continue to be manufactured by the new ownership. Converse & Co. of 88 Worth Street, New York City, will act as selling agents for the products. Robert Knight, founder of the concern, was working prior to 1844 at Arnold’s Bridge as a clerk in the country store of John H. Clarke. When Clarke was elected United States Senator the cotton mill at Arnold’s Bridge was leased to Zachariah Parker and Robert Knight for $50,000 a year. In 1850 they bought the property for $40,000, and the following year Knight bought his partner out and changed the name of Arnold’s Bridge to Pontiac, the name which the village has since retained. In 1851 Benjamin B. Knight, brother of Robert, took a half interest in the Pontiac mill and bleachery. This was the beginning of the B. B. & R. Knight Company that lasted fifty years. The new firm next bought the Hebronville Mill, which now has approximately 30,000 spindles and employs 250 hands. “Fruit of the Loom” cloth is made in this mill. At Dodgeville the Knights bought the cotton mill in 1854. It now has a capacity of 30,000 spindles and 600 looms. The Hebronville and Dodgeville Mills and the two Grant Mill in this city were until the present year run under the name of the Hebron Manufacturing Company. In 1872 the Knights purchased the Manchung Mill at Sutton, Mass., with 48,000 spindles. It now has 60,000 spindles and 1300 looms and employs about 600 people. The Readville (Mass.) Mill, acquired six years later, was sold in January of this year, it is understood, to Japanese interests. The Natick (R.I.) Mill, another of the properties, is one of the largest cotton-mills in the country. It was purchased from the Sprague estate in 1882, and it operates more than 100,000 spindles and 3000 looms and employs about 1,500 people. “Fruit of the Loom” cloth is also manufactured in this mill. The other properties included in the sale are: The Riverpoint Mill, purchased in 1885; the Artic Mill, in 1887; the White Rock Mill, in Woonsocket, in 1876; the Valley Queen at Riverpoint, in 1885; the Lippitt and Jackson Mills at Riverpoint, in 1889; the Nottingham Mill, Providence, in 1899, and the Centreville Mill in 1903.

Rhode Island Mills Decide To Shut Down
Knight Company Will Close Its Plants in Natick and Pontiac.
Providence, R.I., March 11. – A new situation developed today in the Rhode Island textile strike, now at the end of its seventh week, when B. B. & R. Knight, Inc., owners of many textile plants I the State, announced their decision to close their Natick and Pontiac mills indefinitely. While official confirmation was lacking tonight it was understood that other cotton textile manufactures were planning similar action. Natick has been the storm centre of the strike in the Pawtuxet Valley. It was there and in the and in the adjoining village of Pontiac that riots broke out Feb. 20 in which mill property was damaged. Troops sent to the valley at the time are still guarding the mills. The “iron battalion” of strike sympathizers, which took an active part in strike activities in the Pawtuxet area, has its headquarters at Natick. In announcing the indefinite shut-down of the two mills, the Knight Company stated that overseers and heads had been advised to seek employment elsewhere, the company undertaking to provide for them until they should do so. Recent attempts to reopen mills closed by the strike were based, it is claimed by mill owners on the belief that a large number of workers were willing to return to work if provided full protection. Mass picketing, which has been the rule this week at plants trying to operate, has prevented the mill hands from returning, the manufacturers say. In the Pawtuxet Valley the day was uneventful. The Crompton Company’s corduroy and velvet plant kept its finishing plant open with overseers and second hands, but none of the strikers went back to work. The only disorders of the day were in the Blackstone area, where stones and mud were thrown by strike sympathizers at a truckload of workers on their way from East Providence to the Jake Dunnell plant of the United States Finishing Company in Pawtucket. Several workers were cut, but none seriously. Three strike sympathizers were arrested. In anticipation of attempts to open mills in the Blackstone Valley affected by the strike, strike leaders in Pawtucket announced that mass picketing would be carried on Monday morning at all plants where strikes are in progress. It was announced today that Mayor Gainer of Providence will extend a welcome in the name of the city to Samuel Gompers, President of the American Federation of Labor, when he appears tomorrow night to speak on the textile strike situation at a local theatre. Mr. Gompers will address a mass meeting in Pawtucket in the afternoon. It was announced today that the Rhode Island Legislature would vote next Wednesday on the bill introduced yesterday calling for a maximum of forty-eight working hours a week and nine hours a day for women and children under 16.

Early Life and Education:

Born on January 25, 1860 in Topeka, Kansas Territory, prior to its admission as a state in January 1861, Charles Curtis is notable as an Executive Branch officer born in a territory rather than a state of the Union. Curtis was nearly half American Indian in ancestry. His mother, Ellen Papin (also spelled Pappan), was one-fourth French, one-fourth Kaw, one-fourth Osage, and one-fourth Potawatomi.[dubious – discuss] His father, Orren Curtis, was an American of English, Scots and Welsh ancestry. His paternal grandparents were William Curtis and Permelia Hubbard. William's parents were Thomas Curtis and Eunice Peet from early Connecticut. On his mother's side, Curtis was a descendant of the chiefs White Plume and Pawhuska, of the Kaw and Osage, respectively.

From his mother, Curtis first learned French and Kansa. As a boy living with his mother and her family on the Kaw reservation, he started racing horses. Curtis was a highly successful jockey in prairie horse races.[3] On June 1, 1868, one hundred Cheyenne warriors invaded the Kaw Reservation. Terrified White settlers took refuge in nearby Council Grove. The Kaw men painted their faces, donned their regalia, and rode forth on horseback to meet the Cheyenne. The two Indian armies put on a military pageant featuring horsemanship, war cries, and volleys of bullets and arrows. After four hours, the Cheyenne retired with a few stolen horses and a peace offering of coffee and sugar by the Council Grove merchants. Nobody was hurt on either side. During the battle, the mixed-blood Kaw interpreter, Joe Jim, galloped 60 miles to Topeka to request assistance from the Governor. Riding along with Joe Jim was eight-year-old Curtis (also called “Indian Charley”).

Curtis' mother had died in 1863 when the boy was three. His father remarried and divorced, then married again. The elder Curtis was imprisoned because of an event during his service in the American Civil War. During this time, Charles was cared for by both sets of grandparents. His Curtis grandparents helped him gain possession of his mother's land in North Topeka, which he inherited despite his father's attempt to gain control of the land.

Curtis was strongly influenced by both sets of grandparents. After living on the reservation with his maternal grandparents, Julie Gonville and M. Papin, Curtis returned to Topeka. He lived with his Curtis grandparents while attending Topeka High School. Both his grandmothers encouraged him to get an education.

Afterward Curtis read law in an established firm and worked part-time. Curtis was admitted to the bar in 1881. He commenced practice in Topeka and served as prosecuting attorney of Shawnee County, Kansas from 1885 to 1889.

Political career:

The zest Curtis showed for horse racing (he was a jockey in his youth) was expressed in his political career. First elected as a Republican to the House of Representatives of the 53rd Congress, Curtis was re-elected for the following six terms. He made the effort to learn about his many constituents and treated them as personal friends.

While serving as a Congressman, Curtis originated and helped pass the Curtis Act of 1898, with provisions that included bringing the Five Civilized Tribes of Oklahoma under land allotment and restructuring provisions. It limited their tribal courts and government. By his own experience, Curtis believed that the Indians could benefit by getting educated, assimilating and joining the main society. The government tried to encourage Indians to accept individual citizenship and lands, and to take up European-American culture. In application of these goals, some administrators went too far in terms of threats and breaking down families. (see Indian Boarding Schools)

With his ties in Congress, Curtis was always abreast of changes in Indian law and programs. He re-enrolled with the Kaw tribe, which had been removed from Kansas to Oklahoma when he was in his teens. In 1902 the Kaw Allotment Act disbanded the Kaw nation as a legal entity. This was the tribe of Curtis and his mother. The act transferred 160 acres (0.6 km²) of former tribal land to the federal government. Other land formerly held in common was allocated to individual tribal members. Under the terms of the act, as enrolled tribal members, Curtis (and his three children) received about 1,625 acres (6.6 km²) in total of Kaw land in Oklahoma.

Curtis served in the House from March 4, 1893 until January 28, 1907, when he resigned, after being chosen by the Kansas Legislature, to fill the short unexpired term of Senator Joseph R. Burton in the United States Senate. On that same day of January 28, Curtis was also chosen by Kansas' state lawmakers for the full senatorial term commencing March 4 of that year and ending March 4, 1913. In 1912 he was unsuccessful in gaining the legislature's designation again as senator, but his absence from the Senate was brief.

After passage of the 17th Amendment, which provided for direct election of senators, in 1914 Curtis was elected by popular vote for the six-year Senate term commencing March 4, 1915. He was re-elected to the Senate in 1920 and again in 1926. Curtis served without interruption from March 4, 1915 until his resignation on March 3, 1929, after being elected as Vice-President.

During his tenure in the Senate, Curtis was President pro tempore of the Senate as well as Chairman of the Committee on Expenditures in the Department of the Interior, of the Committee on Indian Depredations, and of the Committee on Coast Defenses, as well as of the Republican Conference.

In 1923 Senator Curtis, together with fellow Kansan, Representative Daniel Read Anthony, Jr., proposed the first version of the Equal Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution to each of their Houses. The amendment did not go forward.

Curtis' leadership abilities were demonstrated by his election as United States Senate Republican Whip from 1915 to 1924 and Majority Leader from 1925 to 1929. He was effective in collaboration and moving legislation forward in the Senate. Idaho Senator William Borah acclaimed Curtis "a great reconciler, a walking political encyclopedia and one of the best political poker players in America." Time magazine reported when featuring him on the cover in December 1926 that "it is in the party caucuses, in the committee rooms, in the cloakrooms that he patches up troubles, puts through legislation" as one of the two leading senators, with Reed Smoot.
Vice President of the United States

In 1928 Curtis ran with Herbert Hoover heading the Republican ticket for president and vice-president. Following their landslide 58% to 41% victory, Curtis resigned from the Senate on March 4, 1929 to assume the office of Vice President. The pair was inaugurated, he had an Indian jazz band perform, on March 4, 1929. Soon after the Great Depression began, Curtis endorsed the five-day work week, with no reduction in wages, as a work-sharing solution to unemployment. (See John Ryan's book Questions of the Day.)

Curtis' nomination for vice president made history because he was the only native Kansan and only Indian to hold the post. As the first American of Indian ancestry to reach high office, he decorated his office with Native American artifacts and posed for pictures wearing Indian headdresses.

Curtis was remembered for not making many speeches. The same Star article also said that he had the "best card index of the state ever made." Curtis used a black book, later a card index, to write down all the people he met while he was in office or campaigning, causing him to be known for "his remarkable memory for faces and names."

"Never a pension letter, or any other letter for that matter, came in that wasn't answered promptly," the article stated. "And another name went into the all-embracing card index. The doctors were listed. The farm leaders. The school teachers. The lists were kept up to date. How such an intricate index could be kept up to date and function so smoothly was a marvel to his associates. It was one of Curtis' prides."

Curtis was celebrated as a "stand patter," the most regular of Republicans, and yet a man who could always bargain with his party's progressives and with senators from across the center aisle. Newspapers claimed that Curtis knew the Senate rules better than any other senator and declared him "the most competent man in Congress to look after the legislative program of the administration."

He was the first Vice President to take the oath of office on a Bible in the same manner as the President always had. Since Curtis employed a woman as secretary to the Vice President, instead of the customary man, he scored another minor first. Miss Lola M. Williams of Columbus, Kansas, who had been working for Curtis for some time, became one of the first females to venture out on the Senate floor, traditionally a masculine monopoly. The Topeka Drum Corps, featuring an eighty-two year-old fife player, journeyed to Washington to drum him into office; it was claimed that this had always been done for Curtis since he became county attorney in 1884. Other hokum in the tradition of American politics included the presentation of several gavels and the receipt of a comical telegram from the leader of an Indian delegation from Oklahoma, asking for horses to meet the train so the squaws and children wouldn't have to walk, a humorous way of asking that transportation from the station be provided." - Familysearch.org

OBITUARY: VICE PRESIDENCY: Death of Curtis
Monday, Feb. 17, 1936
In Washington last week, where he had been obscurely practicing law since 1933, a heart attack brought death at 76 to one of the few men who ever genuinely enjoyed being Vice President of the U. S. For 36 years his colleagues in House and Senate knew Kansas' Charles Curtis not only as a modest, hardworking, ultraconservative, non-speechmaking Republican wheelhorse, but as a friendly, back-slapping good fellow, a crack poker player and lover of horse races. The office which he won as Herbert Hoover's running-mate in 1928 overwhelmed this onetime jockey and grandson of a Kaw Indian with a vast new selfimportance. He presided over the Senate with imposing dignity, began making dull speeches on all public occasions. Punctilious in his role as the Capital's No. 1 diner-out, he allowed his exuberant half-sister and official hostess to make a finish fight of her war for social precedence with the Speaker's lady, Alice Roosevelt Longworth. "Call me Mr. Vice President," he commanded his oldtime friends. Last week plain "Charlie" Curtis still had a warm place in those friends' hearts. As for a niche in U. S. history, his best chance seemed to be by reason of the facts that he had been: 1) the first man of Indian blood to become Vice President; 2) the half-brother of Dolly Curtis Gann,

Heart Attack Proves Fatal
Washington, - Charles Curtis, form vice-president and long-time senator from Kansas, died Saturday at 76. A heart attack was the cause. Curtis was elected to the house in 1892 and served continuously until 1907. In that year he was appointed to the senate and with the exception of a period from 1912 - 1914 continued in the senate until his election as vice president in 1928. Since expiration of his term as vice-president, Curtis had practiced law in the capital. He made his home with his sister Mrs. Edward Everett Gann. He was a widower. Only recently, Mr. Curtis was planning to resume his political activities in the interest of Governor Alf M. Landon of Kansas for the Republican presidential nomination. For several days he had been suffering from a cold; but apparently was recovering and ate his breakfast as usual Saturday morning. Two daughters and one son survive, Mrs. Webster 2nd, of Providence, R.I., and Mrs. C.J. George of Fort Sam Houston, Texas, and Harry K. Curtis, of Taos, N.M.

Annie Elizabeth BAIRD-10440 was born on 24 Dec 1860 in Altoona, Blair, Pennsylvania. She died on 20 Jun 1924 in Washington, District Of Columbia. She was buried in Topeka Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas. Annie married Charles CURTIS-10439 on 27 Nov 1884.

OBITUARY: Topeka State Journal
Friday June 20, 1924
Washington DC - Mrs Anna Baird Curtis, wife of Senator Charles Curtis of Kansas, died early today at her home here. She had been ill for a number of years and had been unable to leave Washington even during the recesses of congress. Hope for her recovery had been abandoned for many months. The body will be taken to Topeka, Kansas tomorrow for burial. During her residence in Topeka, Mrs Curtis won a reputation as a prominent club worker who was always eager to do her share in civic and philanthropic work. She was member of the Topeka Woman's Club, and was regarded as one of the pillars of that organization. "There was never any time nor any kind of work, but what we could call on Mrs. Curtis and get a helpful response," said Mrs Eli G. Foster, president of the club, today when informed of Mrs Curtis' death. She also belonged to two literary clubs, the Portia club and the Argonauts of North Topeka. She has served as an officer in both. She still was a member of the Minerva club at the time of her death. As a member of the First Baptist Church, Mrs Curtis was a powerful leader in Sunday school work and other branches of church activity. While a member of the the North Topeka Baptist Church before the family moved to 1101 Topeka Boulevard, Mrs Curtis sang in the choir. She was known as a musician of ability and often appeared in public as a soloist and duets. Mrs Curtis was born near Altoona, Penn.; Dec. 24, 1860. She moved to Topeka in 1869 with her parents, Mr and Mrs John M. Baird. They resided at 921 North Kansas Avenue. Mr and Mrs Baird both are dead. She was married to Senator Charles Curtis November 27, 1884. She is survived by three children, besides her husband; a brother Essington in Arizona and a sister Nettie Hunter in California. The children are Mrs Leona Webster Knight II, Rhode Island; Mrs Permelia George, Fort Myers, Virginia; and Harry King Curtis, New York City. Funeral services will be held in Topeka at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon at the First Baptist church, burial will be in the Topeka Cemetery.

OBITUARY: American Stationer and Office Manager
Volume 90
April 15, 1922
Death of Richard D. Knight of Boston
Richard Dexter Knight, president of the Thorp & Martin Co., Inc., leading stationers of Boston, Mass., also president and treasurer of the Livermore & Knight Co., of Providence, R. I., internationally known printing house, died on Monday, April 10, at his home, 15 Benevolent street, Providence. Mr. Knight was the founder of the Livermore & Knight Co. He began his business career in 1875 as an amateur letter press printer, and from this beginning built up an organization which has become known throughout this country and abroad. On January 1, 1883, he formed a partnership with Frank D. Livermore, an expert steel-plate engraver, under the name of Livermore & Knight which was later incorporated as the Livermore & Knight Co.

OBITUARY: When just preparing to step into the rank of nonogenarians, Henry Paige received his final summons on March 6, 1918, having spent sixty of his years, eighty-nine, in the city of Providence, where he was living retired at the time of his death. He was a son of Martin Paige, of Hardwick, Mass. Henry Paige was born in Lowell, Mass., in 1829, and died in the city of Providence, R. I., March 6, 1918. After completing his school years he became clerk in a store at Baldwinsville, Mass., there remaining several years. He was next employed in a wholesale grocery in Boston until 1850, going thence to Providence, R. I., where he had two brothers, Frederick A. and George Paige, in business, they having located in the city about 1848, succeeding the old College street firm, Stimson & Hodges, groceries and provisions, the new firm trading as G. & F. A. Paige. Henry Paige secured a position with his brothers, and continued an employee until the death of George Paige, when he was admitted to a partnership, the firm reorganizing as F. A. Paige & Company. Henry Paige continued actively engaged in business until 1888, when Paige & Company sold their business to F. P. Garrettson. From that time Henry Paige was not actively engaged in business, but during the thirty years of his retirement took an active interest in all current affairs and aided by counsel and example in many movements tending to advance the common good. He was a member of the Providence Board of Trade for many years, was an ardent Republican, and attended the First Congregational Church.
