Persians Determined to Defend
AT WAR WITH THE THRONE
Parliament Issues Manifesto to the
World Explaining the Present Crisis
in the Affairs of the Country and
Appealing for Assistance.
Teheran, Dec. 1 .On behalf of tlu
nation the Persian parliament has is
sued a manifesto to the world explain*
ing the present constitutional crisis
and appealing for assistance. The
manifesto, which was distributed to
the foreign legations and consulates
"When the affairs of the empire
had fallen into a hopeless state the
nation saw its only salvation in con
stitutional government. The late
shah granted a constitution and the
reigning shah confirmed it, but per
sons who under the despotic regime
were accustomed to oppress the peo
ple misled our young sovereign into
the belief that the constitution was
the cause of the present troubles.
"The nation wants to do nothing
that will disturb peace, but in view of
the attack of the reactionary members
of the government it will defend the
constitution, its only hope, to the ut
"By means of this manifesto the Per
sian nation makes known to all lega
tions and foreign diplomatic represen
tatives the actual condition of affairs
and informs them that the sovereign
is violating his covenant with the peo
ple. It makes this announcement to
all the nations of the world, convinced
that they will show brotherly love to
the 10,000,000 Persians and not allow
their rights to be trampled under foot."
The negotiations between the shah
and parliament- have up to the pres
ent time been without result. The
members of the old cabinet are hold
ing a council in the palace. The post
office and all shops in Teheran are
closed and no newspapers are being
published. WORK OF UNRULY NEGROES
Three Italians Killed and Several
Wounded in Louisiana.
New Orleans, Dec. :.Dispatches
from several Northwest Louisiana
points, where three Italians have been
killed and several wounded since Sat
urday night, indicate that the trouble
has not been quite so serious as at
first reported. Instead of the fighting
occurring between white residents of
Chathamville, La., and vicinity, as for
merly reported, a late dispatch indi
cates that probably less than a dozen
unruly negroes committed nearly, if
not all the assaults. There is some
ground for suspicion, however, that
the whites, through ill feeling towards
the Italians for accepting reduced
wages, failed to exercise the restrain
ing hand which they usually keep over
the negroes in that section. A posse
from Shreveport, La., has left for the
scene of the assaults to restore order
and to arrest the negroes.

Subject of Prohibition Comes Up In

discontinue the issuance of permits to
retail liquor dealers in states, coun
ties or municipalities where local op

Senator Allison suggested that the
government merely collected a tax on
liquor and does not control its sale.
Mr. Tillman replied that the govern
ment in collecting the tax permits the
sale of the liquor and issues a permit
for that purpose. The resolution waj

SOME DEATHS MAY RESULT
Thinly Clad Women and Children
Taken From Burning Building.
Denver, Dec. 1 -.Fire in the Ta
male block endangered the lives of
fifty persons living in the upper
stories. Thirty women and children,
clad only in night robes. and hys
terical with fear, were carried from
the building by policemen and fire
men. Although no lives were lost in
the fire some fatalities may yet result
from exposure, as snow was falling
and the weather was extremely cold.

Mary Judson, a leading witness for
tie prosecution in Morrow's last trial.
The following remarkable statement
was recently made by L, T. Cooper.
It concerns the preparation which has
been so widely discussed throughout
the country during the past year, and
has sold in such enormous quantities
in leading cities:
"It is now a well-known fact that
wherever I have introduced my New
Discovery medicine, hundreds of peo
ple have brought internal parasites,
or tapeworms, to me. In many cases
these people did not know the nature
of the parasite, and were consequently
extremely nervous until I explained
the matter to them. In some cities so
many have had this experience that
the public generally became clarnied.
"I take this opportunity of explain
ing what these creatures are, and what
I have learned about them in the past.
"Tapeworms are much more com
mon than would be supposed. I ven
ture to say that ten per cent, of all
chronic .stomach trouble, or what In
known as a 'rundown' condition, is
caused by them. An Individual may
suffer for years with one of these great
parasitee and not be aware of it.
Federation of Labor's Unfair List
Declared to Be Illegal
COURT CALLS IT CONSPIRACY
Justice Gould of the District of Colum-
bia Equity Court Hands Down De-
cision in ths Case Brought by the
Buck Stove and Range Company.
Washington, Dec. "AIn the case
of the Buck Stove and Range com
pany of St. Louis against the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, involving
the right of labor to boycott business
houses which labor organizations re
garded as "unfair" to them, Justice
Gould of the District of Columbia
equity court granted a temporary in
junction asked for by President Van
Cleave of the Stove company to pro
hibit the federation from continuing
to boycott the company pending a
final settlement of the case.
A bill in equity was filed by the
company last August for a permanent
injunction restraining the federation
from boycotting the company and put
ting it on the "unfair" list in the fed
eration's official organ and later a
supplemental bill was filed charging
that notwithstanding the pending pro
ceedings the federation was still
actively engaged in pressing the boy
cott and a temporary injunction was
Judge Gould declared that it was
not surprising that there was so little
difference of opinion among the courts
upon the question involved and that
the conclusion that such combinations
as that disclosed by the affidavits filed
by the Buck Stove company in this
case were held to be unlawful was
based upon an appreciation of the
fundamental rights of free men in a
No Doubt as to the Boycott.
He said there was little room for
argument or discussion of the question
whether the plaintiff company had
shown the existence of an unlawful
combination and conspiracy to destroy
his business and that the record leaves
no doubt that the plaintiff has been
and still is the object of a boycott,
using that term "in the most obnox
ious sense, namely, an unlawful con
spiracy to destroy its business, such
a conspiracy as has received the con
demnation of evvery federal and state
court in the country before which it
has been brought for criminal action,
legal redress or equitable injunction."
The case will now proceed to a final
hearing, which is not expected before
early next spring. The court, in ren
dering its voluminous findings, ex
plained that there were several, points
which he had not taken up in the
present decision, including the ques
tion whether the boycott came within
the inhibition of the interstate com
merce law. Owing to the preliminary
nature of the proceeding there was no
notice of appeal by the council for the
Federation of Labor.
The court made numerous citations
of decisions in cases involving similar
issues, including reference to rulings
by Judge Taft, the present secretary
of war, then judge of the circuit court,
in the action of the "Toledo, Etc.,
railway vs. Penn company" and pro
ceedings brought in various states.
Declares Conspiracy Exists.
The court held that the contention
of the defense that there can not be
unlawful combination where each
member thereof might do individually
the thing contemplated without respon
sibility to the law has much of plausi
bility and "seems to evade accurate
analysis." Justice Gould cited au
thorities, however, to show that a
combination of two or more persons
with such an intent and under such
circumstances that give them when so
combined a power to do an injury they
would not possess as individuals act
ing jointly has always been recog
nized" as in itself wrongful and illegal.
As to the contention that to restrain
the publication of a name on the un
fair list would infringe the constitu
tional rights of the defendants and be
an assault upon the freedom of the
press and that plaintiff's redress, if at
all, was by action for libel and that
equity would not enjoin the publica
tion of the libel Justice Gould said:
"All this would have merit if. the
act of defendants in making such pub
lication stood alone, unconnected with
other conduct both preceding and fol
lowing it. But it is not an isolated
fact, lt_ is_an act and .a conspiracy to
