PARIS, BOURBON COUNTY, KENTUCKY, FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1922
APPELLATE COUET SITSTAINS
JARIS WATEE COMPANY
The temporary injunction issued
against the Paris Water Company at
the Instance of Sheriff M. Peale Col
lier, in the Bourbon Circuit Court,
June 28, last, restraining the com
pany from shutting off the water of
those citizens who declined to pay
an advance of approximately 33 1-3
per cent, was dissolved Tuesday in
a memorandum opinion of Judge
Augustus Thomas, of the Court of
Appeals. Judge Thomas sustained
the water company's motion to dis
solve the injunction and the case
will be heard later on its merits.
"It is neither alleged nor shown
that the water company is insol
vent," says the opinion, adding
that, "the presumption is that it is
solvent. If so, the short time con
sumed in having the question deter
mined on a final submission will dis
commode the citizens but little, and
the accumulated excess of the rates
demanded over and above the con
tract rates will be small and the
Telatives rights of the parties can
easily be taken care of in a final
"Temporary injunctions should
not be issued unless great and irre
parable injury will result, and if it
be true that the company has the
right to charge the increased rate, if
furthermore has the right to shut off
the water from the premises of any
one who refuses to pay them."
Judge William Rogers Clay, the
only other member of the court
there, concurred in the opinion,

LOCAL MAN TREAStJRER OF SEED
At the recent meeting of the Blue
grass Seed Growers' Association, held
in Lexington, John W. Jones, of
Bourbon county, was elected to the
position of treasurer. Other officers
elected were: T. W. Brock, of Clark
county, president; Robert Beatty, of
Fayette county, vice-president; Clark
Patterson, of Mt. Sterling, secretary.
The executive committee of the
Association met at Winchester, with
the Paris and Winchester cleaners,
and entered into an agreement for
the prompt handling and marketing
of the association seed, by the clean
ers on a reasonable basis. The per
fecting of this agreement has called
for a number of meetings which
have resulted in making a contract
agreeable to all.
This will make an efficient and
most business like arrangement for
marketing the association's seed, as
these cleaners are prepared and and
equipped to handle and clean the
seed and prepare it for the markef,
and their services in selling it will
be most valuable to the association,
considering their knowledge and
rapid strides in arranging its busi
ness and gives promise of large re
sults for the Blue Grass seed busi
ness in Central Kentucky. This
means much for the prosperity of
this section of the State, and stands
second only to the tobacco organiza
tion in importance.

THE STEIKE SITUATION
An appeal was issued from Wash
ington by the executive council of
the American Federation of Labor
to "all workers everywhere to sup
port the railroad workers in their
efforts to secure a just settlement of
the railroad shops trades dispute."
The appeal which was issued by
unanimous vote of the executive
council and over the signatures of
all members of the council, includ
ing Samue Gompers, federation
president, has been forwarded to
every labor organization in the
United States, to every labor publi
cation and to all organizers of the
federation,, it was announced at fed
eration headquarters. Organized
labor is asked specifically in the ap
peal to refrain from doing any
work formerly done by men now on
strike, while the strikers are urged
to conduct themselves in a lawabid
. Chairman Ben W. Hooper, of the
labor board, announced peace nego
tiations to end the shopmen's strike
were halted by refusal of the rail
roads to return seniority rights to
strikers, although agreement was
reached on the four other points at
Railroad executives in a state
ment defended their stand in pro
tecting the seniority of employes
who have remained at work during
the strike and those who have taken
the places of strikers.
E. F. Garble, head of the main
tenance of way union, made public
a letter from President B. M. Jew
ell, of the shopmen, upholding the
maintenance of way men in their de
cision not to strike.
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, call
ed on all workers everywhere to as
sist the shopmen in their strike.
Over 7,000 clerks on the Chicago
and Northwestern road await result
of conference with rail officials be
fore walking out.
The failure of all efforts' to bring
about the settlement of the country
wide strike of the railway shopmen
was announced in a statement issu
ed by Ben W. Hooper, chairman of
the United States Railroad Labor
"As there does not seem to be any
probability of reconciling the anti
podal views of the carriers and the
men on the question at issue, neither
the labor board nor any of its mem
bers are now engaged in any fur
ther efforts along that line," the
At the same time, the statement
pointed out that a virtual agree
ment had been reached between the
rail heads and the strike leaders on
all the points in dispute except that
of the return to the strikers of
their seniority rights, an incidental
question which was not originally in
dispute between the roads and their
Railroad executives, through the
western presidents' committee on
public relations of the Association
of Railway Executives, issued a
statement corroborating Chairman
Hopper's statement that no further
peace conferences were being held
and that the seniority issue was the
principal stumbling block.
