Wilson Regrets He Could Not
Separate Labor Unions from
Sundry Civil Bill.
ARE FUNDS TO PROSECUTE
Assures Country Suits Against Vio
lators of Anti-Trust Act Will
Washington, June 24. President
Wilson yesterday signed the sundry
civil appropriation bill which Presi
dent Taft vetoed In the last hours of
his term because of the provision ex
empting labor union and farmers or
ganizations from prosecution under a
$00,000 fund to press suits for viola
tions cf the Sherman anti-trust act.
President Taft held this was class
legislation of the most vicious char-
acter. The sundry bill carries the ap-'
proprlation for the operation of Rock
President Wilson said he would
have vetoed the labor and farmers'
provision as "u a justifiable" were it
no, for the various departments' ur
gent need of funds appropriated under
the bill. Ho pointed out that the
other funds are available for prosecu
tions under the anti-trust law. It had
been understood for some time that
he would sign the bill, the present
censress having passed the measure
word for word as it was passed by the
COILDXT SIJPAHATE PROVISION.
The President s feeling la the mat
ter, however, s shown In the following
statement which he issued:
"1 have signed this bill because 1
can do so without in fact limiting the
opportunity - or the power of the de
partment of juetice to proBecute vio
lations of the Itw by whomsoever
"If I could have separated from the
rest of the bill the item which author
ized the expenditure by the depart
ment of justice tt a special sum of
$300,000 for the prosecution of vio
lations of the anti-trust law I would
have vetoed that item, because it
places upon the expenditure a limita
tion which is, in my opinion, unjust!
iiable in character and principle. But
I could not separate it.
PROErtTIONS XOT AFFECTED.
"I do not understand that-tho limita
tion was intended as either an amend
ment or an interpretation of the anti
trust law, but merely as an expression
of the opinion of the congress a very
emphatic opinion backed by an over
whelming majority of the house of
lepresentatives and a large majority
of the senate, but not intended to
touch anything but the expenditure of
a single small additional fund.
"I can assure the country that 'his
item will neither limit nor in any way
embarrass tho "actions of the depart
ment of justice. Other appropriations
supply the department with abundant
funds to enforce the law The law
will be interpreted in the determina
tion of what the department should do
by independent and, I hope, impartial
judgments as to the true and just
meaning of substantive statutes of
the United States."
WAXT t.MOSS EXEMPT.
Whatever anybody eald about the
"latent of censress," it is the belief
of many that the lawmakers did have
In mind the general policy of exclud
ing labor unions so far as the opera
tion cf the anti-trust law is concerned.
Class legislation or what not, there
is a strong sentiment ia congress in
favor of exempting labor unions from
ell prosecution under the Sherman
law. The i6sue may be made stronger
in connection with general legislation
at the next regular sesEion.
President Wilson's embarrassment,
in the matter has been well under
stood. Chairman Fitzgerald of the
house appropriation committee was
against the exemption provision, but
he frankly told the president at the
beginning of the extra sscslca that
the sundry civil bill could not be passed
without it. It thereupon was under
stood that the president would sign,
the bill under protest in order to pro
vide the money necessary to meet ex
penses during the coming fiscal year.

F. BURNS HELD TO
DRAW BY COM
'Jersey Skeeter" Surprises the
Champion With Showing in
CHICAGO BOY TIRES QUICK
Logan Square Lad Inclined to Hold
on, While Frankie Is Willing
Kenosha, Wis., June 24. Frankie
Burns of Jersey City fought Johnny j
Coulon of Chicago to, a standstill here !
last night. If a hair-lined decision j
had been given Burns would have been
entitled to the honor. It was a battle
of bantams, with Coulon the better
trained, but Burns the more eager
and for the greater part of the bout
The tenth-round finish with the hon
ors all his brought Burns points up to
better than even. In that final session
he stepped around Johnny and fought
with his right hand with an indom
itable determination to put the cham
pion away. Coulon tried to fight back,
but his speed was not up to that of the
boy from Jersey.
Coulon was condemned continually
by the crowd for holding. From the
first round to the last Johnny kept
his arm over Burns' glove and held so
perceptibly that even those on the out
skirts of the crowd were inclined to
hiss him. Coulon kept Burns away
from him most of the time by this
holding and there seems little doubt
if the champion had fought an open
battle euch as was put up by Burns,
the eastern lad would have won by a
CHAMP LACKS JUDGMENT.
The pride of Logan Square did not
show the championship form that
should be expected. His foatwork was
just as stylish as ever before, and
he had Burn3 puzzled several times,
but his Inability to follow up this ad
vantage proved a surprise. Not more
than four or five times did Johnny
show the upper hand. He seemed to
lack distance and judgment, although
it was Burns' aggressiveness and de
termination to make a good showing
that kept Coulon in the background
most of the time.
Not until the second round did
either boxer 6how enough to warrant
the mill being called a fight for the
title. It was near the middle of the
round, and after the boys both fought
a careful first round that Coulon slip
ped a vicious left to the jaw. This
forced Burns to cover and Johnny let
loose with rights and lefts, but the
easterner was well able to take care
of himself while on 'the defensive
The third round brought out some
clever milling, with Burns working a

Both boys were even to the entire
