ORGANIZED LABOR ON TRIAL
Another, ami perhaps n greater men-
I aeo to the liberty of speech and of the
pro- has arisen, 'this is the decision
cil Justice Wright against the American
Federation of Labor, and tho sentencing
[of ii- officers, Qompers, Mitchell, ami
Morrison to jail for disobedience of the
court's oiiler in I he boycott of ihe Duck
Stove and (tango company.
The American federation of Labor Is
Ihe chief association of organised labor
in ihi- country. It has been of In
'stimnhlc value in improving the con
lit ion of the workingman both within
iml without labor-unions. As the strike
has nlwavs proved an expensive and
wasteful process ami one to be resorted
■ii only in emergencies, the boycott has
proved a most efficient weapon in en
forcing labor's demands, and organised
labor has always exercised its prerog
itive of saying as publicly as it though!
necessary thai ii does not patronize
those whose acts have been hostile to
It' .I'lisilee Wright's decision is sus
tained by Ihe higher courl it will mean
tlmt tho w'orkingirMHi of this country
have no right through their organisation
o retaliate when thej have been at

in abrogation of the right of freedom
of speech and of the press, if Justice
Wright's opinion Is fonnil to be jnsti
fled by the law, it is high time thai
»ueh itll absurd autocratic, nnd un-Amer
