Ignoring a United Slates Court
Indianapolis. Oct. 21. Edward I
Bessette, the Chicago typographical
trnio:i man who took so active a part
in keeping up the strike at Hammond
Ind.. against tbeCcnkey plant, was ad
judged guilty by Judge Baker Satur
day and fined $2."( for violating an
injunction. The court declined to ac
cept any bond pcndii-g appeal, and al
lWr-fTrb1cs" m. which to prepare
;-n appeal. Bessette then was taken to
jail. He decided cot to stay lu jail for
the purpose of ilppealiug. and his
friend are raising a fund to pay th.
fine. In giving his. ruling Judge Bak
cr spoke for an hour. He sld Bes
sette was tried on the theory that h
was a co-conpirator with the strikers
who violated the injunction.
Not a Question of Organization
"llns court ! not concerned with
the organization of labor unburn In this
ase," Judge Baker said. "It is not A
matter of moment if the Chicago Typo
graphical I nlon started a controversy
with the Con key company al ong time
ago. The court docs not care if Con
key has been niggardly in dealing with
bis employes. The si l ike started, and
the meu had a right to quit work. The
court has nothing to do with that."
The court reviewed the restraining or
der and its purposes, and s-.ld it wa
not necessary to serve" Bessette with
notice of the injunction. The court
claimed jurisdiction, although Bessette
a as not a party to the original bill.
Declare the O Re use 1're inert dated.
Judge Baker said it was clear that
Bessette had knowledge of the .Injunc
tion", and that not until after the tn
ji.nction had been Issued did the Chi
cago union think it necessary to send
missionaries to Hammond to aid the
strikers. T he union had no interest In
the strikers, as some of them had been
expelled from the union, be said, and
added that "Bessette, without any rea
son or excuse, and with his eyes wide
open, conspired with the strikers to
defeat the purMise of the court's re
straining order." As to the question
of cBssctte having knowledge thnt an
injunction had liecn Issued the court
reviewed the fact that TKJO copies of
the injunction were posted about Ham
mond and that there was a conference
about it by the Chicago Typographical
T'nlon. the result being the sending or
Bts.sette nnd others to Hammond.

that these thugs, these bullies, came
down from Chicago simply from mo

one that was Interested in defeating
and thwarting the order of the court?

Manila. Oct. 21. Owing to the vlgil
r.nce of Lieutenant Thomas M. Baines,

slaughter of United States troops by
insurgents has been averted. It eems
that lieutenant Baines discovered a
prisoner re-entering a cell at Carbiga,

confined, through a hole that had been
cut in the wall. An Investigation
showed a plan to till the jail with bolo
tuen and to call the guard which
would be necessary to get the door
open and then to attack the garrison.
It also developed that the instigators
were a priest and the president, both
of whom have been arrested, together
with 'several other prominent persons.
