The publisher of the strikebound Daily News accused New York's mayor and police of ignoring evidence that strikers conspired to destroy the newspaper with violence and intimidation.

The allegations by James Hoge came Thursday after a replacement driver was beaten and stabbed about 12 hours after he was summoned to testify before a grand jury investigating strike violence.The newspaper offered a $100,000 reward for information about the attack early Thursday in Irvington, N.J.
