ATTACKING MINEKS' COUNSEL.
Trinidad, Colo. Judge Wiley of
Alamosa has dismissed the charges of
perjury against II. N. Hawkins and F.
W. Clarke, counsel for the United Mine
Workers' union, growing out of an affi
davit of Grovcr Hall, a juror in the trial
of John R. Lawson. In his affidavit
Hall declared that lie stood for the ac
quittal of Lawson until coercive meas
ures were taken by the court bailiff, who
told him his (Hall's) wife was sick.
The juror swore that he was not per
mitted to visit his home, and that he,
together with the other jurors, were not
given food during one entire day. Un
der these circumstances, Hall swore his
mental condition was such that he voted
for conviction that he might see his
wife. Hall also declared the bailiff told
the jurors Judge Hillyer gave orders
that they could not cat until they had
reached a decision.
This affidavit was used by counsel for
the mine workers in their fight to secure
the .supreme court order prohibiting
Judge Hillyer from presiding in future
cases growing out of the coal miners'
State Attorney General Farrar, who is
conducting the light against the mine
workers, realises the harmful effect the
Hall affidavit has had on his case, and
in his attempt to discredit it, filed
charges against the workers' attorneys.
When Judge Wiley dismissed these
attorneys from the charge of improper
conduct, Farrar filed a similar complaint
along different lines.
SAFETY OF SHIPS EXPAXDS.
Sail l'"rancisco. Editor Scharrenburg
of the Coast Seamen's Journal has this
to say of the safety first rules on ves
sels, now enforced by the Canadian gov
"While the 'American' dollar patriots
have t oared and howled about the un
reasonable safety requirements of the
new .seamen's law, the government of
the Dominion of Canada has quietly
but effectively established some 'safety
first' rules for Canadian vessels. At
any rate, Canadian newspapers are te
ferring to the new regulations as 'the
death blow for the steamer excursion
business,' and this ought to be quite suf
ficient to indicate that the new Canadian
requirements' must he absolutely O. K.
Hilfl is evidently a bad year for that
peculiar tvpe of shipping men who
claim to be unable to 'make it pay' un
less they are permitted to do as they
please. Here's congratulations to the
Canadian government. 'Safety before
dividends, at sea as well as ashore,'
is a splendid slogan for all America."
C. & O. ItAISES AVAGES.
Pittsburgh, Pa. A. F. of L. Organ
izer Flynn has notified Secretary Frank
Morrison that conferences with the mo
tive power department of the Chesa
peake & Ohio railroad has resulted in
securing wage increases of 1 cent an
hour for all shop laborers on that sys
tem. STIUKEHS ItEJECT OFFER.
Nashua, NT. II. Striking textile work
ers have rejected the offer of mill own
ers, which provided that the strike be
declared off and a conference fix wages
at the level paid elsewhere for the same
grade of work "if the Nashua rate was
found to be lower." The strikers have
notified their employers that arbitration
is the only proposition that will be con
sidered. The strike involves about 11,300 work
ers who were unorganized when they
struck, October 5, for a 15 per cent
wage increase. Representatives of the
United Textile Workers' union are in
the city assisting the strikers.
MIXING COMPANY MUST PAY.
Baltimore. The State industrial acci
dent commission has ruled that the
piainc Alining company, which carries
its own insurance, is guilty of negli
gence, and must compensate Kimmcl
lioulpart, a miner, for injuries received
because he carried large quantities of
powder into the mine. It was shown
that the company was aware of this
practice, but the management offered in
defense that a notice had been posted.
The fact that the notice was written in
English and' could not be read by only
50 per cent of the men, led the com
mission to rule against the company.
WHAT CAN A FAMILY LIVE ON?
Washington. "The cost of living for
the foreign-born family is less than
that of Americans, because their stand
ardsarc lower," writes Frederic J. Has
kin in The Evening Star, while discuss
ing the question, "What Can a Family
"The fact that out of an income of
$700 or $800 the foreigner is able to
make a small saving docs not affect the
real inadequacy of his wages. The sav
ing is made by the sacrifice of decent
living conditions for his family."
ItEST LAAV DEFINED.
Albany, N. Y. The State industrial
commission has ruled that it will not
consider applications for exemption un
der the "one day of rest in seven" law
where it is possible to comply with the
law by the employment of additional
workers. The only emergencies that
will be considered are fire, ilood or oth
er conditions "which could not be an
ticipated in the statute itself."
