It required the mandate of a Federal court to bring* the mine
striker*' officials fo their senses. -The injunction ought not to have
been necessary. The President's statement should have been the
law of the land for the miners Mr. Lewis and his fellow offices
have done the working men of the coal fields a great service by
showing respect for the law. We believe that practically all of the
miners are law abiding, and wish to act in all matters within the law.
It would have been serious, indeed, if Mr. Lewis and the other
officials had elected to go to jail, instead of calling"off the strike.
The spectacle would have been bad. It would not have made martyrs
of them for the reason that the American people, first of all respect
The hrmncas 01 the Department of Justice in dealing with the
strike situation, re-establishes confidence in the government. At
torney General Palmer laid out a plain program It meant establish
ment of public order
The speed with which the machinery for arbitration is being 'put
in running order by the Secretary of Labor guarantees a "jTroper
tribunal for the settlement of the differences between the miners and
the; operators. If eifher side refuses to accept the good offices of the
administration, in settling all questions pertaining to wages and
hours, and working conditions, the one that refuses will have neither
the sympathy nor respect of the people.
Organized labor lost nothing by the withdrawal of the strike
order. In fact, it gained. American labor, as a whole, has shkwn
respect for the courts, and the action by the miners' leaders only re
affirms the attitude of labor in the past. ?
Radical leadership received a death blow. Henceforth, the chiefs
of labor unions must keep within -th> bounds of law and reason. The
power of the government, through the Federal courts, has been
clearlv proved. There should have been no occasion for the issuance
of the injunction. If Mr. Lewis and his associates had shown the
same calm reasoning before November 1, that they have shown in
the past twenty-four hours, they would have been spared th? humilia
tion that now faces them from their men and the people.
Justice and right will prevail.
The suggestion that the Senate go into secret session is good. It
would cut speeches to a minimum, give Senators an opportunity to

Howdy, Mr. Prince!
America is big enough to properly welcome prince or peasant.
Some persons are trying to make capital out of the attentions we

Once a king, he really will exercise less power than one of our State

Lady Aslor Hits Sawdust Trail
When Her Anger Is
Plymouth. England. Nov. 11.?
The declaration of Mr. Gay, labor
candidate, that tt\e Lady Astor's
campaign was a "iftere circus pro
cession" and that Mr. Foot, liberal
candidate, was the only candidate
be recognised as an honorable op
ponent. ha3 raised Lady Nancy's
American fighting spirit. While
her opponents were^ lapsing into |
personal attack Lady Astor was not
idle. Her meeting last night ended
?n great <yithusia.sm with Lady As
tor displaying platform Drowess
worthy of Billy Sunday.
The viscountess started her
speech standing behind a table,
which she pounded vigorously to
emphasize her remarks.
Soon she climbed to a chair that
her words might reach the fringes
of the audience. Later she climbed
to tha table and. with characteris
tic arm jabs, denounced her oppon
ents wbom she declared seemed to
stop at nothing In their desire to
accomplish her defeat.
She characterized some of their
statements as "most annoying."
Increasing opposition today Indi
cated the viscountess' election Is
by no means assured. A section of
the conservatives have announced
their opposition to a woman M. P.
and it Is believed many ??r these
will abstain from voting.
