court A copy of the 'transcript of
Staehle's testimony was given him.
Stahle was questioned concerning
an attachment of the salary of Carl
Reddington, a telegrapher, whom
Staehle said had borrowed ?$5.
"But in your affidavit of merit in
the municipal court you swore that
'Reddington owed you $97.50,, said
Landis.
- "Well, he signed notes for $50 and
there was a provision for attorney's
-fees in case of a suit,' 'replied

BIG LAWYERS SAY 8-HOUR LAW
IS CONSTITUTIONAL
In spite of the howling of the high
priced corporation lawyers that the
8-hour bill is unconstitutional, other
famous attorneys, tied up by no rail
road strings, say the bill is constitu
tional and will undoubtedly be up
held by the U.-S. supreme court.
Dean John H Wigmore of the
Northwestern law school is firm in
his belief that the law will be upheld
by the supreme court. He said: "If
it is constitutional for the interstate
commerce commission to regulate
rates on the railroads the govern
ment probably has jurisdiction over
hours of service and wages of the
employes of the railroads."
William C. Niblack, member of the
executive committee of the Ameri
can Bar ass'n, said that he believed
congress had full power to pass the
8-hour bill and wiuld undoubtedly be
upheld. Selden F. Spencer of St.
Louis expressed similar views. In the
meantime the railroads' attorneys
are burning midnight oiljplanning for
their fight in the courts.
Frederick W. Lehmann, former
U. S. solicitor general, got hearty ap
plause from corporation lawyers at
the American Bar ass'n convention
when he denounced congress for act
ing hastily on the 8-hour law..
Congressmen Britten, Wilson and
Mann, all of Chicago, voted against
the' 8-hour bill. Mann was the "heavy
man" for the railroads in attacking
the bill.
Employes emphatically denounced
atones given to the trust press that
thousands of employes would not
strike even if trouble is not settled.
They say the men are united.
Trains, both incoming and outgo
ing, crowded with tourists seeking to
get home before strike is called.
