LABOR OFFICIALS ESCAPE JAIL.
Contempt Sentence Set Aside by U. S.
Supreme Court-Highest Tribunal
Washington. May 15.-Samuel Gom
rners, John Mitchell and Frank Morri
son, president, rice president and sec
~rary of the American Federation of
Labor. stepped from without the shad
ow of the jail today, when the supreme
court of the United States set aside
their sentence of imprisonment for
cotmpt,n grwing- out of the litigation
bei ween the Buck's StoVe and Range
company and the Federation. The
highest tribunal in the land has left
the lower court the right to reopen
the contempt proceedings. This grant
of power probably will not be accept
ed and the case practically is ended
with today's decision.
The basis of the court's decision
was that the proceedings brought
against the men were for civil con
tempt, which could be punished only
by the imposing of a fine. The sen
tence of the lower court to imprison
ment was the penalty for criminal
contlempt and in the premises it was,
therefore, not a legal punishment.

Mrs. Jones' Relatives and Fought
Petition for Pardon.
Spartanburg Journal, 17th.
Relatives of Mrs. Marion Jones, in
flighting the petition for a pardon for
W. T. Jones, employed as counsel Ce
cil C. Wyche, a well known and prom
inent attorney of this city. Mr.
Wyche called upon the governor and
presented reasons why the pardon
should not be granted. Friends of Mr.
Wyche will be interested to know of
his connection with this csse and. his
success in the outcome. Mr. Wyche is
from Newberry, but has been practic
ing law in this city for several years,
and is a successful lawyer.
Governor Blease has perhaps re
ceived more congratulations and has
had more pleasant things said about
him in Spartalnburg over his action in
refusing to -grant executive clemency
in this case than for any other ao
that he has done since moving into the
governor's mansion. The story, as
printed in the Journal yesterday af
ternoon, caused many comments, as
there was a great deal of interest in
