I S UNION BADGE.
I Right to. Wear It -JJpheld by Aus-
I tralian iudgo.
IAN EMBLEM OF FIDELITY.
. Action of Employers In Forbidding tho
Button, Was Merely a Part of the
.Policy of tho Bosses to 8uppress
Unionism, Says the Jurist.
A victory for unlouiam all over the
world was gained when Judge Illg
N gius of tho Australian high court and
prcslciont of the coniinonwcalth court
. of conciliation and nrhltratlon decid
ed that workers had a right to wear
tho union button. Writing from Mel
bourne to the Chicago Tribune, George
A. Doraey saya:
The Brisbane strike hinged about the
right of atroet car employees to wear
a union badge. The strlko was a blun
der, because the badge question was
already up before the federal arbitra
tion court and would havo been set
tled within a few days by Industrial
.Judge Ulgglns' decision In the case
of tho Australian tramway employees
"versus tho tramway trust Is the latest
and perhaps the most important con
tribution to tho, complex subject of In
dustrial legislation. Judge Ulgglns
"The employees are proud of the
badge as an emblem of fidelity to their
comrades and their common interest.
and when they chat upon any oppor
tunity they like to know whether they
may talk freely on matters relating to
their union to or In tho presence of
particular men. The badge is, in fact,
a danger signal where both men are
not wearing it, and a 'line clear' when
both or either wears it. It is a ticket
of admission to meetings and serves to
introduce members on a visit from an-
i other state.
The objection to wearing tho badge
is put best and most strongly in Mr.
Goodman's statement. So says, 'The
evidence shows clearly that tho wear
ing of tho badgo subjects persons who
do not wear it to insults and opprobri
um from unionists nnd from members
of tho public who sympathize with the
unionists,' I say without hesitation
that the evidonce points to tho oppo
"I And that the forbidding of the
X, badge is, in the case of Melbourne and
' i ofJBrtsbaue, merely part of the policy
v T ornhe companiea to suppress union
ism. It Is the old device first keep
' away unionism as long as you can
and then, when it must come, create
a dependent union and attract the men
to it by favors.
"This creating and fostering of a
' rival union, this encouragement of Its
y- members nnd discouragement of the
! members of the other union, is tho, root
of such bitterness as there Is, and the
companies could easily get rid of tho
bitterness by ceasing to bestow excep
tional favors on the company's union.
vl "My award is, therefore, distinctly
I against tho nttempts to forbid the un-
I ion badge.
"There Is a dispute between tram-
I way employees nnd their employers
I in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The dispute has reached an acute stage
in Brlsbnno and may become acute at
any moment iu Melbourne and Ade
' laldc. By a resolution of the federal
council on Feb. 11 the executive of
the Australian Tramway Employees'
association waB empowered to take
, steps to secure a union badge of mem
bership. The badges were made and
distributed, but in the meantime in
Brisbane and Melbourne certain step's
were tnken by the employers against
tho wearing of them.
"In Brisbane on Jan. 18 the men be
gan io wear them. The manager, Mr.
Badger, ghvo the men distinctly to un
derstand that they were to chooso be
tween their billets and their badges.
It Is idle to affect that this was not a
dismissal for wearing the badge. The
men were willing to go on working
, I i and were deprived of their work and
j pay. What more Is necessary to con
stitute a dismissal? It Is absurd to
call such a dismissal a 'strike,' what
ever name may be given to the con
N duct of other unions.
"It is unfortunately incident to our
V constitution that lu place of giving all
i the energy I have to a consideration
of what Is right and expedient to be
dono in an industrial struggles I have
I , in every case to puzzle out us best 1
I ' can what is constitutional. In this
j , case I overrule all the technical ob-
4 ' jections and Unci the facts, so far aa
j they affect the objections. In favor of
' "la It reasonable that the employer
yi , should order his qmployeo not to wear'
tho badge? Mr. Badger has a quulut
' theory that he has a common law right
to tell his employees what they should
1 wear. I know of no such common law
right. A servant has to otey lawful
commands, not nil commands, lie docs
not commit a breach of duty in attend-
Y lng a: particular church or in wearing
' a certain maker's garment'). The com-
l ', man law right Vf'un employee id to

.chooses, in matters not affecting his
work. Ho may wear what ho likes ho'
long as he docs not offend against tkt
"Of course the employer may, by due
notice, get rid of an employee who docs
not dress to hlj liking, but an employee
is not guilty of any breach of duty In
refusing. There may bo a contract for
obedience as to livery or uniform, but
this court has power to interfere in
contracts nnd to say what contracts
mdy or may not bo made or enforced
David Bulloch returned from
Pioche recently where he had
been (in the interest of his sheep
and other business. He reports
having experienced considerable
difficulty and hardships in locat
ing his sheep, 'but that on the
whole his trip was a pleasant
one. He found his sheep in a
thriving condition. One of the
pleasant features of his trip was
the meeting with a number of
old acquaintances whom he had
not seen for more than twenty

A great many Cedar City citi
zens went to Ogden the first of
last week to be in attendance at
the trial in the district court of
Weber county of an action in
volving the sale of a stallion
said to be valued at $2,500. Be
auso of the large number of
witnesses and the distance nec
essary to be traveled, the cost,
including attorney's fees, will
amount to almost as much as the
amount involved in the action,
making it an expensive action
for the losing party.

your candidate needs.
