American Federation of Labor waa re
turned by the Jury In the famous hat
ters' boycott case hers late yesterduy.
Immediately after tho verdict vas
read. Federal Judge Jamos L. Martin,
in compliance with the anti-conspiracy
clause- of the Bherman anti-trust law.
trebled the amount of award to 1240,000,
which, with costs, makes the Urgent
amount ever granted by a Jury In this
State. Judge Martin also gave tho at
torneys for the defense until January
S. U1S, In which to file their appeal to
the united States Supremo Court.
The aftrd granted was the full sum

considerable surprise was manifested

particularly successful on the Paclllc

the Loewe Company by threats of be

President Samuel Qompers, of the
Federation of Labor, was reported

engagements and could not be reach

of $10,000 and damages for D, R.
Loewe & Co, of Danbury, against
members of the United Hatters
Union of North America.
Secretary Frank Morrison, of the

Place Raided at Once.
"When I went to the place In Forty-
fifth street, Rosonthal told me he
thought Becker must be crazy to ask
that money from a place that had Just
opened up. Shortly afterward Becker
told me that complaints were pouring
in on Police Commissioner Waldo that
Rosenthal's place was being run wide
open. He told roe that he would have
to do something and directed me to
tell Rosenthal that he would have to
stand tor a raid.
"I stalled him off on the raid, telling
him that It would hurt business. But
one day when I met Becker In the
Union Square Hotel, he told me that
he had made up his mind that he would
raid theiplace. I begged and pleaded
with him to abandon ithe Idea. I
Eolnted out all the danger, especially as
e told me that he was going to Just
raid the place without trying to get
tne evidence tne regular way.
"He told me that he had to make the
raid to keep his standing. Then I told
him that I did not Intend to be In the
place when the raid came.
"Becker did raid the place, and ar
rested Mrs. Rosenthal's nephew, who
waa visiting her, as well as one of
the men In the place. I was standing
across the street when the raid was
made. The next morning Rosenthal
mot Becker In court.
"'That was a tough deal you gave
me last night,' was his greeting to
"I Just had to do It, Becker told
him, 'as my Job was hanging on It
But I will make It all right when the
case goes down' town, and I will sco
that everybody la turned out.'
"Then Becker, because of the loss
that Rosenthal was put to as the re
sult of the raid, ordered his lawyer
to cancel the mortgage, and thought
that this ended the matter. But they
put a policeman on duty In Rosen
thal's house, and he waa kept there
despite Rosenthal's protests.
"Rosenthal and Becker held several
meetings, but they could not fix the
matter up, and the policeman stayed
In the house. Rosenthal was unable to
do business, and he was 'arrowing des
perate. He finally threatened Becker
with the district attorney. He told him
he would tell all he knew. I went to
Becker, and told him that we would
be In bad If Rosenthal squealed, but
he told me to keen qulst. that he bad
every angle covered." '
