and Two Chiefs.

upon the court's authority ana dlsnlty,
of which it had found them guilty.
"As to the first suggestion, it Is
enough to say that while It is trus
that the litigation, in tho course of
which the respondents har committed
their contempts, was at an end, and
the private right sought to be pro
tected by Jie injunction, was no longer
pressing upon the, com t bejow for its
nid, yet in- the truest sense the high
est Interest of eve.ry litigant was in
volved and the private rights of every
citizen were to be subserved by the
-action of the court- below.
"As to the other 'suggestion that the
various incendiary statements of the
respondents'which the' record contains
rere' not attended bv public disorder,
it may be said that this was perhaps
due to the fact that the Federal courts
still possess adequate power to protect
themselves from insult and oppression
by those who would override them, ot-
wjiicn power the record 'thows lhtt
the resondents avowedly seek to" de
prive Jhem by their antl-injuncticn
and contempt measures..
"If the punishments Imposed in the
present case had been? unprecedented,
-they -would not have been onr that ac
count cruel or unusual, because our legal
annals contain no such precedent of will
ful and defiant disobedience and con
tempt of the court's authority as existed
in this case. The defendants the rec
ord shows, before the injunction was
granted, declared openly and defiantly
that they would not obey It If granted,
and, after the granting of the injunc
tion, they declared in print, in public
speech, and in every other conceivable
" way. that the injunction made no dif
ference, that they would no obey it.
that they would rather go to
Jail than obey It, that they
appealed, to their confederates and
heir friends to disobey it and to
deprive it of all practical effcet. and ad
vised them that all who lived territori
ally outside of the jurisdiction of the
Supreme Court of the District of Col
umbia could disobey it with impunity,
if they thereafter kept without the Dis
trict." In regard to the inherent power of the
Equity Court to punish for contempt,
the prosecutors argue:
"The learned counsel for the respon
dents have not been able to cite any
authority for the proposition that courts
of equity have not the same Inherent
power which, under all the authorities,
belongs to all courts to punish disobe
dience and insult to its dignity and
authority. On the contrary, in every
Instance In which a punitive sentence
has been imposed for contempt of the
equity courts, the proceeding has been
instituted, and prosecuted to the end,
in tbosj courts. The origin and the uni
versality of this Inherent -power, in all
courts, and the necessity for it, is rec-"
ttgrifaeCt in all the authorities upon the
subject, manv of -RhIchwIH be cited In
other conpectlons In this brief."
The pro'secutors take-up the claim of
the respondents that there was no in
tentions, of the labor leaders to con
tinue the boycott after the court's in
junction had been Issued. It was' con
tended by .Mr. Goaifters "that he simply
rxcrcpa nis rcnt 01 - iree FDeecn ana
the liberty of the press." To this the
prosecutors reply: 3 '
1 . Refute Argument - "
'3 either the specifications of error
northe brief of ihe respondents contain
an intimation' that theinjunctlons In
this ,case Infringed the respondents'
constituilpnal rights of association, -of;
Tree press or tof free speach. Those
contentions, once so prominent In this
litigation, and particularly In the litera
ture of the respondents in evidence in
this case, have at last been abandoned."
Pointing out wherein the labor lead
ers are alleged to have violated the
Injunction, the prosecutors quote these
extracts from a speech by President
"The court will soon gi-e a decision
on, the legal !tsue which has been
. raised. , We shall continue to maintain
that we iave the right to publish the
name of the Bucks' Stove and Range
Company 'upon the we don't patronize

court from doing so. the merits of the
case will not be altered, nor can any
court decision take from any man the
risht to bestow his patronago where
he pleases t

to d-clde how our money shall be ex
pended. You may or may not buy the

Sucks stove or range."
Points to Privileges.
"You cannot be prohibited from In
forming your friends and sympathizers

form business men .handling the Bucks

ployes and ask them to give their sym
pathy and aid in influencing the Bucks
fc'tove and Range Company to deal fair
Ij with its employes and come to an
honorable agreement with the union
primarily at interest."
Summing up the alleged Instances of
violation of the court's decree, the
"The foregoing facts taken irom the
record, supplemented as thev aie by
taich other testimony, establish the'
fact that the boycott which both the
.cpreme Court of the District of Co
lumbia and this court sought to stay
by Injunction, continued with unabated

vhatcver for the assertion in the re

their other remarkable assertion that
there Is no evidence In the bill of ex
ceptions tending to prove such continu
ance of the boycott
"Not only was there evidence tending
to show the continuance of the boycott

of Messrs. Gompers and Mitchell, edi

resolutions adopted by organized labor,
and other alleged utterances to further

prosecutors. The committee then con
cludes this phase of the case by urging:
"From ,the foregoing quotations from
the record in this case, it is'Impossible
for any reasonable man to doubt that
the respondents were engaged In a con
certed effort to keep up the boycott of
the Bucks Stove and Ran?,e Company

them to do to, and that their conduct

LABOR UNI R
The committee of prosecutors takes
President Gompers to task for alleged
"Inconsistency" ln his statements .about
the meaning ot a "boycott" and the
good faith of the federation officials In
frjlng to obey the court's Injunction.
On this point the brief says:
Has Own Idea.
"A means of enabling himself to testlfy
to these otherwise hopelessly inconsis
tent statements appears to have been
found by the respondent by cstbllshlng
ln his own mind a conception of a boy
cott which would enable him. ln Tils
own consciousness, to differentiate be
tween maintaining a publicity with re
spect to the controvcrsw and the in
junctions which would destroy the
business of the Bucks Stove and Range
Company, and aiding r abetting the
"At page 335 of the record he asserts
that the constitution of the American
Federation of Labor does not provide
for the prosecution of boycotts; at page
4o5 he testifies that he 'obeyed the In
junction in every particular, in so far
as it was for the purpose of carrying
on a boycott or aiding or abetting it;'
at page 462 he testifies that 'the boy
cott ended, so far as the A. F. f I
or Its officers arc concerned, on De
cember 23, 1907,' and. at page 457, that
tne A. F. of L. maintained boycotts in
earlier years, but not In 1907.' At page
ioo, however, he defines' a boycott as
"an agreement of two or more persons
to refrain from bestowing their patron
age upon .any Individual' it may well
be there were no agreements, in some
senses of that word, formally entered
into while the injunctions were In force,
and that the various acts of the re
spondent Gompers- were not Intended
by him to aid or abet any formal agree
ments' to that efTect
"The metaphysical and " fallacious
character of this distinction is finally
admitted by him at pages 467-46S of the
record, where, after claiming that pub
lishing the names of firms or manu
facturers In the 'We don't patronize;
list is different from a boycott he
flnallv admits that 'there may be very
little difference between this and a boy
cott in witness' construction of this
term substantially the same thing in
Limitation Not Issue.
Referring to the contention of the
labor counsel that the statute of limita
tion should hold ln the proceedings, the
"The next objection, attempted to be
presented by the sixth, seventh, and
fourteenth assignments of error, is, the
alleged refusal of the court below to
find the charges barred by the statute
of limitations. No basis for any one of
these assignments, however, 6 to be
found In the record:.
"The defense of limitations Is, of
course, exclusively statutory and.
wherever interposed, presents simply
the question whether tne. proceeding Is
one covered by the terms bf the statute.
From its Inception, for example, it hag
been held not to apply to anv proceed
ing ln equity, because the prohibition
is aganlst the brlngrng of "actions'
within the period specified, and suits in
equity do not fall within the legal no
menclature, 'actions.' Independently of
any. or of all, the considerations pre
sented in this brief upon this subject
It would seem to be an exceedingly
forced construction to contend that a
court of equity, proceeding within Its
own jurisdiction ana according to Its
own methods of procedure to vindicate
its authority, is Ipso facto converted'
into a court of law, and its proceedings
into an 'action,' or into a prosecution
within the meaning of a statute which
is plainly directed to prosecutions for
offenses, ln the criminal courts."
Answering the claim of the contem
ners that contempt of court is a crim
inal offense, he committee says:
"Contempt -of court is not a criminal
offense, in any general sense of the
term, unless it can be claimed to have
been so created by a Federal statute.
Such a claim, recognized as essential
to their contention, was made by re
spondents' counsel in the court below,
declaring it to have been made criminal
by Section 725 of the Revised Statutes
which Indicates that courts of the United
States shall, among others, have the
power to punish by fine or imprisonment
contempts of their authority, not to ex
tend to any, cases except misbehavior In
their presvmce or so near thereto as to
obstruct the administration of. Justice,
the misbehavior of their officers, and
the disobedience or resistance 'by any
party, etc., to-any lawful writ process,
order, rule, decree or command of such
"The omission to renew that claim.

The original contempt of court pro
ceedings were begun In 190S and the
three labor leaders were adjudged guil
ty of contempt of court and sentenced
to jail. The Judgment of the District
Supreme Court was uphelc1 by the Court
of appeals, but was reversed by the

committee of prosecutors. The commit

DEBT FOR DISTRICT
Johnson's Point of Order Sus

After taking Its first step toward
Its repudiation of tile half-and-half
principle existing between the Fed
eral and District governments, the
House rested today ln its maltreat
ment of the District of Columbia ap
The bill, in a badly emasculated
.shape, will be (Considered again to

House decided last night tbafthe

Johnson Wins HisfPoint
Mr. Johnson's point oik order against
this appropriation, payable heretofore
half and half out of the revenues of the
Federal and District Governments, was
sustained by Congressman Roddenbery,
acting as chairman of the Committee
"of the "Whole during the debate on the
bill. Congressman Burleson, ln charge
of the District measure, appealed from'
the decision of the Chair. The House
voted to sustain the Chair's ruling.
Thus the attitude of the House toward
the District and Its relations to the
Federal Government is revealed in such
manner as to alarm the citizens of
Washington. Congressman Johnson for
several years has been assailing the
half-and-half principle of the organic
act He now has an opening wedge to
pry apart the District and the Federal
- 130,000,000 Back Debt
The clause in the District bill af
fected concerns less than a million dol
lars, but If Mr. Johnson's contention is
correct these is a moral obligation that
the District shall become responsible
for the entire amount paid on this fund
for the past thirty years, roughly esti
mated by Mr. Burleson to be 130,000,000.
The point of order against the sink
ing fund appropriation has several
times been made In the' House, but the
chair has heretofore overruled it Mr.
Roddenbery, In ruling against the
precedents, invited the House to vote on
an appeal. The House, by a vote of 97
to 3i sustained the chair and deter
mined to saddle the funded debt obliga
tion solely upon the shoulders of the
Acrimonious debate. preceded the rul
ing. Tho funded debt controversy fol
lowed the attempt of Mr. Johnson to
caddie npon the District under a rider
to an appropriation bill of ISTS. the total

ruled Mr. Johnson on this, holding that
Congress had always maintained the

appropriation for the funded debt
Mr. Johnson said the act of June 28,

ryr Chair Upholds Johnson.
After reviewing the conflicting argu
ments and the rulings of the chair when
the question was presented previously.
Chairman Rodenbery upheld the John
son point of order, by saying:
"The chair Is of the opinion that the
act of June 11, IS78, and June 30, 18T9,
authorize the United States to advance-
sufficient sums to pay the interest and
sinking fund In the District of Colum
bia, but the entire amount is chargeable
tn the District of Columbia. In the
opinion of the chair nil sums appropriat
ed by tne present dui are uisoursea m
accordance with the provisions ot the
bill and not In accordance with some
other statute law. The only bearing
other acts can have on,the question un
der consideration Is whether or not
there is law authorizing an appropria
tion to be made in this bill.
"Construing the half and half pro
vision as it appears on the first page
nnd In the first section of this bill In
connection with the item to which tho
point of order Is made, the chair ia
forced to- the legal conclusion that one
half of the amount would be charged
to the United States and one-half to
the District of Columbia.
"That is. that under this act if It Is
Sassed. one-half Is chargeable to the
Istrlct funds and one-half to the Fed
eral Treasury, and that neither the Sec
retary of the Treasury nor any other;
administrative nor disbursing officer
could apply it In any other way.
"The chair Is of the opinion that un
der the acts of 1S7S and 1879. the entire
