all is that which holds that the miners
have no right fo belong to their union.
This judge has held that the United
Mine Workers' organization is a con
spiracy and that it isjiot necessary
to show any act or violation of law
upon the part of any striking, miner,
because his membership in the union
is a conspiracy in itself !
An illustration of the high-handed
methods of the judge is given in the
case of a merchant named Schwartz,
who leased a strip of land to a strik
ing miner before injunction had been
issued by the judge. The miner put
up some tents on the property to
house some of the strikers.
Judge Dayton haled Schwartz into
court, after the issuance of the pre
liminary injunction, charging him
with a violation of its terms in leas
ing this land to the miner and in per
mitting tents to be erected on it.
He instructed Schwartz to dispos
sess the -miners. Schwartz notified
the miners that the judge '.demanded
that the tents be removed. They re
fused. Judge Dayton cited Schwartz
to appear again and jailed him for
sixty days for contempt of court for
failing to evict the miners;
In another case he sent to jail for
60 sixty days a striking mirier named
Paul Scori, because, while going to
the postoffice, this man stopped for a
few minutes at one of the tents.
He has cited about 25 persons to
appear in court on March 17 for vio
lation of the injunction, and! has es
pecially commanded the organizers
of the U. M. W. to appear. These men
have no idea what the Charges are
against .them. " -1
No accusation was made; the
judge's action was taken on a simple
affidavit made by Mine Supi. Robin
son and Mine Foreman Virgin, which
did not set but in any particular in
what way it has been violated. The
judge holds that it is not necessary
to file specific charges.
