Such is the outlook as it appears to

File Brief and Will Argue
in Federal Court.
Washington, Oct. 6. Probably the
greatest labor fight w-aged in years in
the supreme court of the United States
opened today when Daniel Davenport

over the American Federation of La

Merely An Outline.
The brief was merely an outline of
the arguments to be presented orally
at that time. The brief for the federa
tion, which objected to any injunction
in the case has not been filed. The
supreme court of the District of Co
lumbia issuad a broad injunction
against the American Federation to
j prevent it from boycotting the Buck's

(charged with operating an "open
shop. The court of appeals of the
district modified the decree of the low
Formed the Ranis.
It was this modification ithat formed
the basis of the argument presented
to the court tcday. The history of the
case is summed up by the attorneys as
showing an "undisguised and unani
mous common effort to coerce the
complainant into submission to their
demands by attacking and seeking to
destroy its business and to accom
plish its financial ruin, as the penalty
of refusing to submit to their dicta
tion." Bueks Stove Company Out of It.

New York republicanism was his

Cummin Oat of Bandwagon.
The report comes from Iowa that
Senator Cummins has left the Roose
velt bandwagon because of the Taft in
dorsement. Whether this is true or
not, it is undoubtedly true that many
thousands of Roosevelt's former
friends have abandoned him.
Here is the milk in the cocoanut:
The people have been under the mis
taken impression for the last couple -of
years that Roosevelt stood for about
the same thing in politics as Senator
Robert M. LaFollette. And when
Roosevelt came out with his indorse
