Judge Mason's Decision May Have
a Big Effect.
HE SAYS THERE MUST BE NO IN?
TERFERENCE WITH THE OPERA?
TIONS OW THE COAL MINES?HE
HOLDS THAT HIa RULING DOES
NOT HINDER FREE SPEECH
WHERE DEVOTED TO LEGITI?
Wheeling, W. Vnv; July 81.?The most
important event in the ^miners' strike in
West Virginia to day was the handing
down of an opinion of Kpecial Circuit
Judge John Mason, of the Marion county
court, on the application of the Monon
gali and Watsou Coal^Compnnies for an
injunction prohibiting the agitators and
organizers of the^ Mine-W'orkers' Union
and others from "conducting a conspir?
acy" to indiK-e the miners of the compa?
nies to strike and cause^a disccntiuuauco
of work in the mines.
The motion for the injunction was
argued and Judge Mnson gave .as his
opinion that the injunction should stand
and that it was good ".in law. He hold
that it was drawn" in'form similar to
numerous notable cases and that it did
not hinder free speech where devoted to
legitimate purposes, and hindered .no
man from attending to his ^ordinary bus?
iness nnd occupation so long as his efforts
were not directed to the hindrance of the
coal companies from conducting their
business iu the ordinary and legitimate
Ho also held "that the highways shall
not bo used for assemblages which tend
to obstruct the coal companies .in the
conduct of their business, and that
speech shall not be devoted to !the propo?
sition of a conspiracy to prevent, the
companies from continuing their mines
in operation. As .authorities he cites a
number of cases.
This decision makes the injunction per?
manent nud renders liable to Its provi
I slons ail'who may .make further attempts
to create a strike in Marlon county. The
strikors have decided to go on with the
work at Fairmount in spite of It. As
fast as the men are arrested uuder the in?
junction they will be gotten out on bail
snd put iu other fields, new .'ones tuking
their places at Fairmount. The miners
say the Mason injunction will bo over?
ruled by the higher couits.
, J. W. Rea, of the Painters' and Deco?
rators' National Union, has been ap?
pointed lieutenant to w. D. Mnhon, .who
has been put in general control of the
strike in West Virginia. Mr. Rea is
quartered at the Arlington Hotel, in Pal?
atine, uear Fairmount, where he is plan?
ning a campaign" which he hopes will
bring out the Marion county miners.
Ho has had numerous conferences with
local labor leaders and is taking a secret
census of the miners in the Fairmount
district who are favorable to the strike.
Mr. Rea believes that they are largely in
the majority and his secret census is
making a better showing than he ex?
pected. He "takes'daily reports to
Columbus and Charleston, and the work
in the State is being systematized.
Mr. Rea spoke at Clarksburg to-night
to a big crowd, mostly miners from the
Pinnickinick mines. The meeting 'was
enthusiastic, and the 'miners, who have
been organized to the r.umber cf 500, are
ready to striKo as soon as [it 'is apparent
that the Fairmount district can be closed.
It Is recognized generally that the step
page of agitation in the Fairmount dis?
trict when the labor conference was held
in Wheeling recently was i mistake and
that the organizers would have been do?
ing better woi'K there than in Wheeling.
The men were then enthusiastic and had
a high opinion of their importance in the
national movement, but they have cooled
down, and it will take great efforts, no
matter how many organizers are brought
iu.to get the old feeling aroused.
The Monongah mines put in forty new
men to day, some of them members of
the union which wns'formed there last
week. In the Norfolk and Western region
and in the Kannwha Valley there is lit?
tle change in the situation, the organ!/,
crs having as yet gotteu their new move?
ment under but slow headway. They are
mapping out the campaign, and little
will be done this week except to prepare
for next week's work. The organizers
promised by the Wheeling conferences
are arriving on the ground and are being
assigned to their work. Most of them
will work iu the Kanawha, Norfolk and
Western an'1 Fairmount regions.
Iu the Wheeling district this morning
the Hoggs Run men "vent back to work
in accordance with last^night's decision,
but came out again after an hour's work.
The Moundsville and Glendalo miners
also came out again when tbey'learned
I that the Boggs Run men had reconsider?
ed theiriaction. This leaves the Panhan?
dle district completely tied up.
Reports that the Wheeling nnd Lake
Erie railroad had discovered spikes driven
in on switches at; Dil Ion vale, Ohio, are
denied by the railroad authorities.
