JUDGE DAYTON DEFENDS SELF
AGAINST.FEDERAL CHARGE
Washington, Feb. 23. Federal
Judge Dayton of West Virginia took
the stand yesterday in the proceed
ings intended to show hla tempera
ment Is not judicial, and defended his
injunction in restraining the United
Mine Workers from organizing the
West Virginia miners. He said he
had no intent or wish to do labor any
injustice but considered It unlawful
for outsiders to attempt to persuade
the employes of the Hitchman Coal
o., which Tiad a contract with its
men not to join a labor union, to
break their contract.
Taking up charges that he had
been improperly influenced In favor
of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad-because
of his service as attorney for
that company, Dayton declared his
only recompense from the Baltimore
& Ohio had been an annual pass. He
said he represented the company only
in Barbour county and had never had
but two cases in court.
Walter M. Brown, attorney for the
Interstate commerce commission, re- '
viewed the course of two cases
against the Baltimore & Ohio rail
road in Judge Dayton's court. Brown
said that although attorneys for
government and railroad had agreed
to a stipulation of verdict in ten
counts against the road for failure
to report working employes longer
than 16 consecutive hours, Judge
Dayton refused to accept the sipula
tlon and enter the agreement These
cases, although before the court for
more than year, are yet undecided,
Brown said.
In another case, in which the Bal
timore & Ohio was charged with hav
ing illegally worked employes more
than 16 hours, Daytdn returned a ver
dict for the road.

Lansing, Mich. Definite action by
