AWARD AGAINST HATTERS
$240,000 VERDICT IN NOTED BOY
Jury Gives Manufacturer $80,000,
Which Is Trebled by Provision in
the Sherman Anti-Trust Law.
Hartford, Conn. A verdict for
$so,ouo and costs was awarded for
the plaliitifTs, 1). K. Lot-we &. Co., of
Danl.iiry, against inembera of the
United Hatters' I'nion of North Amer
ica In the United Statea district court
linder the Sheridan anti-trust law,
this award will be trebled, making
the total amount $210,000.
It took the Jury four hours to reach
the decision, most of the time being
spent in examining the expense ac
count of the plaintiffs. The verdict is
for the full amount sought.
This already famous case has been
before the court for nine years, dur
ing: which time It has gone to the
United States court of appeals twice
and once to tbe United States su
preme court. In the first jury trial,
three years ago, the award for the
plaintiff was $::2.000.
Steps were begun by the defense to
appeal the case again.
Stilt was first brought In 1902
against 240 mmbers of the United
Hatters of North Americu, residing
in this state, and was based on the
allegation that a conspiracy existed
to injure the business of the plaintiff,
a soft hat manufacturer, because he
declined to unionize his factory.
In both trials evidence was present
ed aiming to show that certain labor
unions had instituted a . boycott
against the plaintiff" s business.
