the inca mt. The strip n.cn were ready
for them, and when they had passed t he
tre-pass line they were lire ' upon, ami a

As a result of the battle the men in the
Strip pit were routed by the strikers and
were forced to flee for their lives, pursued
by th- howlina mob. which would have
lynched them had they been caupht.
There is an enclosure around the pit
which was broken into by the strikers.

The excitement was intense after the
shnotiiiK and it was feared that matters
would become worse, hut a prominent
Striker, ieorue U. Fulton, made the crowd
a speech in which lie advised them to keep
cool and counseled peace. It is rumored
that a quantity of firearms has leeii re
ceived here. The excitement is still at fe

a further demonstration will lie made.
A teletrnim was received at the miners'
headquarters at Pittsburi? stating that
Assistant Attorney General Clark will ar
rive in I'ittsbtirg to afford the mine. sail
the lei?nl protection to which they may be
eutitled. The miners at that vicinity are
in a state of intense excitement over the
wounding of four of their number at this
place. Many express the opinion that this
is but a starter, and will ie.sult in more
bloodshed. That they are more wrought
tip now than at any tim.- during the strike
is certain, and there is no telling hut the
end will be.

"Age of Association" Limitation Left
for the Future to Determine General
Kule Laid Down.
St. Pai l, July 21. The fight which has
been going on for a year past between lum
bermen and the Northwestern Lumber
men's association has ended in a complete
victory for the latte.. The decision in cf
fec gives the association power to raise or
lower pric s at will, and to crush individ
ual competition. A year ago the liolm
Manufacturing company, of St. Paul, got
tired cf what it termed the '' xactions" of
the association, and began selling lumber
as it pleased. Secretary Hollis, of the asso
ciation, notified the members, according to
the by-laws, that the Bohn company had
violated the rules by selling directly to
contractors and consumers in towns whe e
members of the association were doing
business, and had afterwards failed to pay
over to 'he association 10 per cent, of these
sales as required by the rules.
Lays Down a General Itnle.
In the district court Judge Cornish de
cided in favor of the Bohn company. The
supreme court has reversed that decision,
holding that any man unless uncle.- con
tract obligation, or unless his employment
charges him with some public duty, has a
right to refuse to work for or deal with
any man or class of men he sees fit, and
this right which one man may exercise
singlv any number of men may exercise
jointly. The sending out of the notices re
ferred to by Mollis is held not actionable
and as affording nn ground for an injunc
tion. An "Arc of Associations."
In his opinion Judge Mitchell reviews
the history of the case and then says that
it presents one phase of a subject which is
likely to be one of the most important
and 1 difficult which will confront the
courts during tli next quarter of a cent
ury. "This Is the age of associations nnd
labor unions," continues the court. "Con
fined to their proper limits they are not
only lawful but laudable; carried lioyond
these limits they are liable to become
dangerous agencies for wrong and op
pression. A Toii(;h ilollem to Solve.
"Beyond what limits these combinations
cannot go without interfering with the
iegal rights of others is the problem which
the courts will doubtless be frequently
called to pass upon. But whatever doubts
or difficulties may arise in other cases
presenting other phases of the general
subject involved here, it seems to us that
there can be none on the facts of the pres
The rrinclpl of the Decision.
"There was nj element of fraud, coercion
or intimidation either toward plaintiff or
members of he asocit ion. It was entire
ly opt iotia! with the plaintiff whether it
would pav or not. If it valued the trade
of the members of t!ie as-ociation higher
than that of the non-dealers Ht the same
points it would probably conclude to pay;
otherwise not. It cannot be claimed t iat
the act of making this demand was action
able, much less that it constituted a
ground for an injunction.
"Hence this matter may be laid cntirvly
tit of view. Nor was there any coercion
brought to bear on the memliers of the
association. It was a matter of their own
free choice whether they preferred to'dcal
with plaintiff . or remain in the associa
tion." KANSAS SILVER MEN MEET.
