LABOR LEADER WHO
Tells Senators Man Who
Passed Sentence on Him and
Others Should Be Unseated.
WABHprOTON, July . Impeach
ment of Justice Itanlel T. Wright of
the Supreme Court of the DlatliOt of
Columbia waa suTe-ested to-day to the
Senate "Third Decree" Investigation
ommittee ay aamual Oompara. I iei
dent of the Americati Federation of
Labor. Mr, Oompers's complaint was
against Justice Wright's course In the
Bui ks Stove and Kanre Company con
tempt prOCOOdlnga against tlte Federa
Mr. C.ompers told the committee that
he knew the Senate could not begin Im
peachment proceedings and that he did
not mean that the committee was to
take the Initiative.
"I do know that If we had the recall
In the District of Columbia." added Mr,
I'l.impers, "that Justice Wright would
have been recalled before this."
"I do not think the recall Is as gold
as impeachment generally," suggested
The impeachment suggestion came at
the close of a review of the contempt
proceedings waged In the local courts
by the Buck Company against Presi
dent t.ompers, Vice-President John
Mitchell and Se retarv Prank Morrison
of the Federation of Labor.
"The sentences Imposed by JUItlCO
Wright In that proceeding are unparal
lelled In the history of the Jur spr i
donca of this country," declare.1 Mr.
Gompers "There Is no other case on
record where there was an Imposition
of more than six months' imprisonment
upon any one found guilty of contempt
Mr. Qompan tdtd of the Institution of
new procaadlnga by Justice Wright, and
lidded that as an alternative to onswe. -Ing
the shargaa an opportunity had been
given the defendants to apologize.
"Justice Wright will he much older
before I apologize," declared Oompers.
"I am ngt conscious of having violated
any law or having harmed any man."
A protest was made ajralnst the bur
den on the FodaratiM of having to de
fend suits for alleged contempt, viola
tion of the inarm an Anti-Trust law
and other criminal charges. Mr. Oom
pers said It seemed to be part of olan
to itusIi the Federation.
He askisl the committee to have a law
passed to put a Mop to kidnapping of
laboring men and their "removal to other
States for trial.
Mr. Oompers complained against tho
manner of arrests of John J Mc

It Is T feet In diameter and has a

MADE RECORD TRIP.
The balloon Is of exactly the same

The balloon was anchored to-day by
sand bags on the northwest corner of
the new store's roof, fifteen flights up,
The process of Inflating It hag been
going on for three days. It required the
use of ten tons of Iron borlnjs end
twelve tons of FUlphurlc aid. the gas
being the result of the action of the
acid, diluted with water, on the Iron.
