Gov. Blease Makes Characteristic Com.
ment on Situation in Orangeburg.
Glad That Recall Has Been Invok.
Columbia, Dec. 17.-Govqrnor Blease
this morning flayed the Cannission
form of government and said that the
hoped the recall should be Invoked
in every city in the State before
Christmas where that provision is in
force, He said that lie was glad that
the recall had been invoked In Orange
burg, that while he didn't care who was
mayor of that town, still he wanted
the people to see just what their re
presentatives had put on them. "There
is no democracy In the commission
form: it's a farce." declared the Gov
When the commission form was
passtd it was vetoed by Governor
Blease but was passed over his veto.
The Governor this morning denounced
the recall wherein twenty per cent of
the voters could recall any oflicial.
"Why they could have an election ev
ery thirty days," he declared pointing
out what in his opinion is one of the
greatest weaknes'ses in the Coininis
"I hope they will all have the re
call," said the Governor, "to show to
the people what a nuisance the legis
lature put on them. And I hope they
will keel) on recalling them," said the
Governor pointing out the fact that it
was possible to recall the officials ev
ery month. It would be an endless
system calculated to wear out any of
ficials even though they were re
elected every time, as was pointed out
by the Governor this. mornihg.
It is thought in Columbia that an
amendment raising the requirement of
the percentage of voters to sign a re
call petition before it is effective will
be offered in the coming session of the
Thitedi a "Blense Minn."
Governor lilease expressed grati
flcation at the election of M. C. liar
relson, of Mullins, to the general as
sembly from Maarion county. Ms.
Hlarrelson, according to the governor,
is rated a "lilease man'" while his
opponent was placed in the opposite
column. Mlarion county, however, is
not a Blease county a majority in that
section being opposed to the present
ad1ministration. 'T'here remains now
only one more legislative election,
that in Richland county, where a suc
cessor to the late George It. iembert
is to be elected at a general election
to be held soon There are several
announced candidates for the position.
Thus far there has been no vacancy in
the State senate to fill, for the session
of the legislaturt which begins Tues
day, .tan. 13.

Important Decision of Federal Courts
as Affecting Labor Unions and Boy.
New York, Dec. 18.-The United
States court of appeals today decided
the famous Danbury hatters' case in
favor of D. E. Loewe & Co., the plain
tiff, and against the United Hatters of
North America. The court affirmed a
judgment in favor of Mr. Loewe and
against the hatters' organization for
With interest a'nd costs the judg
ment now amounts to $272,000. At
the first trial, held in 1909, the plain
tiffs obtained a judgment for $232,
Sustaining the second judgment,
Judge Cox declared that it was no
longer debatable "that the anti-trust
act. is applicable to such combinations
as are alleged in the complaint," and
that the act made no distinctions he
tween classes of coml,!nations or in
The court held that it clearly had
been established the;t the plaintiffs
were engaged in an interstate busi
ness, and that the defendants are
members of a trades union and aflil
iated with the American Federation
of Labor, "one of the objects of the
latter organization being to assist its
members 'in any justifiable boycott
and with financial help in the event
of a strike or lockout.'"
Judge Cox said in conclusion of his
"No one disputes the proposition
that labor unions are lawful. All
must admit that they are not only
lawful butt highly beneficial when
legally and fairly conducted, but like
all other combinations irrespective of
their objects and purposes, they must
obey the law."
Long in the Courts.
Danbury, Conn., I)ec. IS.---The so
called ,Danbury hatters' case has been
bofore the courts for more than ten
years. Once it was before the United
States supreme court. Of the 210
original defendants, more than 30
xince have died and two have gone
insane. The American Federation of
Labor supported the hatters and
prominent labor ofilcials. including
Samuel Gompers and John Mitchell,
gave testimony at sonne of the trials.
A walkout of union hatters employ
ed by D. 1E. Loewe & Co., in 1902 was
the beginning of the case. The fac
tory up to that time and since has
been conducted on a non-union basis.
In 1903, I). E. Loewe & Co. brought
suit against Martin Lawler and 239
other members of the ia tters' union
alleging a boycott that was in vio
hation of the Sherman anti-trust laws,
in that interstate comm ee 'was re
The company alleged that its blusi
nless had been seriously injured by
the boycott and claimed $250,000
Soon after the suit was brought the
American Fedleration of Labior de
cidied to stand behxind the defendants
and~ to reimburse thiem against any
loss. Tihe Anti-boycott Society of
Anmerica helped tihe plaintiit, so the
litigation dlevelopled into a legal bat
tie between the two organizations.
After mnay delaxys the case wvas a's
signed for trial ix the Ulnited States
district court, but was not then tried,
becing takeix to tihe suxpreme court for
interpretation. In February, 1908, thxe
supreme couirt hlandedl down a de
cision, in effect, that the allegations
constitutedl a violation of the Shier
manx law. lIx Octobem', 1909, its trial
was begun before thxe tUnited States
dlistrict court axt Hlartfordt. After a
trial of 74 weeks the jury returlnedl a
verd(ict for the plaintiffs of $74.000.
JIudge Plat t, now deeaxsed, awnarded
triple dlamages, in accordance with
the She'rmnan law, so that with costs,
the total amoxunt was $232,34.i
The verdict was set aside by the
couirt of appeals andl a new trial or
dleredl. Feder'al .Judge Martin of Ver
mont heardl the second tr'ial at Hart
ford and onx October 11, 1912, the jxur'y
rendered a verdict for the plaintiff of
$80,000 andl costs, tile amouint being
tr'ebled, according to law. Tlhe case
again was ap~pealedl andl the arguments
were heard in New York last month.
