Rail Injunction Plea

' ?ill open the defense.
' The government rested on the
itrength of some 600 affidavits charg?
ea? violence, intimidation and destruc?
tion of property during the strike. No

? tend that the existence of such wide

?nd their officials are responsible for it.
Donald R. Riehberg and Frank Mul

Scott, the only two of the 240 union
leaders and 400.G00 strikers affected

in court, are preparing, they say, to
offer evidence in support of the union's
charge o? a counter conspiracy against
them. The union leaders charge that
the railroad executives entered into a
conspiracy, first to force a strike and
then to destroy the union. Certain
leaders of the executives, they contend,
held out agiiinst any peace settlement

against the union.

Board in Pact
(Continued from nata on?)
New York Central would probably be
I modified within a few days. !
It was learned that the Fruit and
| Produce Trade Association, represent?
ing receivers and shippers of Califor?
nia fruit who had been hit hardest by
the shut-down on western freight, had
appealed on Wednesday to the Inter?
state Commerce Commission. A tele
! gram to the association from its Wash
j ington correspondent yesterday stated
| that the commission had made it plain
! the railroads vere not authorized to
issue general embargoes, cited its serv?
ice Order 23, and took the position that
the embargoes were a violation of its
provisions.
At the offices of the railroads it was
learned that the embargo question had
been considered by representatives of
the Erie, Lehigh Valley, Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western, New York Cen?
tral and Central Railroad of New Jer?
sey at a conference yesterday when the
stand of the Interstate Commerce Com?
mission was discussed. The presence
of the Central of New Jersey was ex?
plained by the statement that it was
preparing to see what portion of the
Erie's business on which it was forced
to lift the embargo restrictions, it can
! handle.
This sudden turn of affairs in the
embargo situation resulted in no action
being taken at the meeting of officials
of the Pennsylvania and representa?
tives of the fruit dealers at which
plans for transferring the fruit hauling
business to that road temporarily were
to have been discussed.

Curbing Courts
Announces National Cam?
paign for Law Forbidding
High Tribunal to Nullify
Act Repassed by Congress
Bench Called Usurper
A. F. of L* Also to Press for
Passage and Ratification
of New Child Labor Bill
/Special Dispatch to The Tribune
ATLANTIC CITY, Sept. 15. - - The
Amer cm Federation of Labor will
sponsor a constitutional amendment
returning full law-making powers to
Congress and providing against review
by the Supreme Court after a piece of
legislation, once reversed by the court,
again is passed by the national law?
makers. This decision was reached
to-day by the executive council of
the American Federation of Labor, in
session at the Ambassador Hotel.
The council plans early introduction
of the amendment and calls for a great
national campaign for its adoption and
ratification. The council's statement
indicates the amendment decision is
the result of the resentment aroused
by the action of Attorney General
Daugherty in obtaining the Federal in?
junction against the striking railroad
workers.
Coupled with its campaign for a new
law curbing'the powers of the courts,
the A. F. of L., it was asserted to?
night, also would press for adoption
and ratification of the McCormick child
labor law bill.
Formal Statement Issued
After a lengthy executive session
during which- the amendment plan was
discussed in detail the views of the
council were made known in an offi?
cial communication, which follows in
part:
"The American Federation of Labor,
in an effort to restore the full powers
of government to the people and to
curb the courts in their exercise* of
power in violation of the constitution
of our republic, will stand sponsor for
a constitutional amendment to return
to the Congress the full law-making
powers with which it was endowed by
the framers of the constitution.
"This amendment will deprive the
courts of their usurped power to de?
clare unconstitutional laws enacted by
Congress. Such an amendment will
be introduced in Congress at the earli?
est possible moment."
"Under the terms of the amendment,
as now contemplated, the United States
Supreme Court will have the power to
review an act of Congress and to de?
clare such an act unconstitutional, but
in the event that Congress for a sec?
ond time enacts the legislation in ques?
tion it wiil be beyond the power of the
court and will stand as the final and
unassailable law of the land." ?
Expect Popular Approval
"It is the view of the executive coun?
cil that such an amendment will meet
with the overwhelming approval of the
American people. The power now ex?
ercised by the courts, in this and other
respects, is a purely usurped power.
"All state federations of labor and
all local unions and city central bodies
will be asked to join in a. great national
campaign for adoption and ratification
of the proposed amendment. At the
same time and by the same methods the
campaign will be waged for adoption
and ratification of the child labor
amendment already introduced in the
Senate by Senator McCormick, of Il?
linois."
The statement concludes with a brief
resume of its discussion of the question
of affiliation with the International
Federation of Trade Unions. The coun?
cil concluded no new step3 toward affili?
ation would be taken pending evidence
of a disposition "to meet American
contentions."

Ford Shut-Down Begins
TWight in All Plants
100,000 Men Wffl Be Made
Idle to Balk Alleged Profi?
teers in Coal and Steel
Rpeniat Dispatch to The Tribuna
DETROIT, Sept. 16?Henry Ford
completed arrangements to-day for the
indefinite shut-down of his automobile
plants, thereby throwing 100,000 men
in the Dotroit district out of work.
This acti in, as he announced two weeks
ago, was on account of alleged profi?
teering in coal and steel.
Although the suspension ? of activity
was not to be complete until to-mor?
row night, curtailment of operations
was arranged to begin to-night. Tools
and machinery have been greased in
several departments to prevent rust.
The Municipal Street Railway Com?
mission was notified late this after?
noon, after a conference of Mr. Ford
and his executives, thatj the street cars
employed to bring the 11 o'clock shift
to work to-night, should remain to
take the men away. These men were
to be the first actually laid off. No?
tices were posted throughout the plants
to-day instructing the men on the day
shift to turn in their tools to-morrow.
Foremen also were instructed to notify
the men under them to cut down their
expenditures, indicating that the sus?
pension will continue for some time.
Writ Halts Nearly
All Municipal Bus
Lines in Queens
Justice Callaghan Grants
Restraining Order When
Road Complains of Loss;
Patrons to Enter Protest
Supreme Court Justice Callaghan, in
Brooklyn, granted an injunction yes?
terday afternoon halting the operation
of virtually every municipal bus line
in Queens. The only important line
not involved was the one between Bay
side and Flushing. The order was
granted on application of Arthur C
Peacock, counsel for the New York &
Queens County Railway, and argumenl
for a permanent injunction will be
heard before Supreme Court Justice
Lewis next Tuesday.
The larger lines affected were those
operating between Flushing and Col?
lege Point, Flushing and Whitestonc
and Flushing and Jamaica. They have
been in operation for several month?
and carry hundreds of passengers each
way daily.
The injunction became effective im
mediately and the busses stopped run
ning last night. Home-going crowd!
were discommoded and the bus station:
were jammed. When the patrons o:
the lines learned of the injunction thej
protested vigorously, and many of then
notified city officials of their intentioi
to aid in the forthcoming fight agalns
making the order permanent.
The New YotMc & Queens County Rail
way obtained the temporary writ oi
the grounds that the busses were no
a public necessity, as the company wa
oporating trolley lines between thes
points, and also because the compan:
was being deprived of revenue due it
Mr. Peacock, in his petition, charge
that the busses were operating withou
a franchise.
Copies of Justice Callaghan's orde
were served last night on Mayor Hj
Ian, Commissioner Whalen of the D?
partment of Plant and Structures an
vpon members of the Board of Est
mate.
The College Point and Whiteston
busses carried passengers to the A
burtic Avenue terminal of the Coron
elevated line, and were the most lit
erally patronized. The Jamaica lin
ran from Flushing Bridge to the Lon
Island Railroad station in Jamaica.

Veteran Tells
Of Detention
In Insane Ward
Oscar Roma Testifies in
Hospital Inquiry; Says
He Was Unfairly Perse
cuted by Attendants
A Paranoiac, Says Doctor
Physician Admits Youth Was
Herded With Defectives
as Disciplinary Measure
For the first time since the begin?
ning of the investigation into condi?
tions in Veterans* Hospital No. 81, the
Bronx, the special committee, which
will resume its hearings on Monday
morning at 10 o'clock, called an inmate
of the institution before it yesterday
as a witness. This was Oscar Rona, an
ex-service man and one of the patients
who, according to the charges brought
against the hospital by Representative
Albert B. Rossdale, was confined in
Ward G with violently insane men as
a punishment, although sane himself.
Rona on the witness stand corrobo?
rated this charge and described h?3
experiences.
"I know I am not perfect," said Rona,
| "but I don't think ? should be in the
ward with the insane."
Telling the circumstances surround?
ing his commitment to Ward G, Rona
asserted that he had incurred the dis?
pleasure- of the hospital authorities by
organizing a theater party for his fel?
low inmates^although this was done with
the approval of the ward doctor. A few
days later, he said, his check from the
government did not arrive and, as he
was without funds, he frequently called
at the mail window to ask for the de?
layed letter. It was because of this
he declared, that a complaint was*
lodged against him with Dr. Chron
quest, superintendent of the hospital
and he was taken before the discipli?
nary board.
Kept in Violent Ward
He testified that as a result he was
sentenced to be confined in Ward G-20,
which was for the violently insane,'
but that after a few days he was trans?
ferred to G-10, which is used as a
minor observation ward in the same
building, because his place was needed
for a man who had become violent.
Rona is still held in the latter place
and was brought from there to testify
by an attendant.
Rona also declared that at one time,
while he was telephoning to a friend,
using the public pay station in the re?
ception room, he was interrupted by a
hospital official who was listening and
warned to be careful of the statement?
he made.
Dr. George T. Brewster, executive
officer of the institution, was asked by
the committee if such a thing were
possible. He replied that, as far as
he knew, there was no connection be?
tween the phone in question and the
hospital switchboard. However, he was
instructed by the committee to investi?
gate the matter and report on it.
Dr. Chronquc8t was again called and
verified a record of Rona's case taken
from the files of the Veterans' Bureau.
According to the doctors, Rona is s
paranoiac, with a depressive tendency,
and was placed in the observation ward
of G Building after he had shown
?motional excitment and had constant?
ly urged physicians to release him.
Physician Denies Charge
Dr, H. A. Bunker, in charge of Ward
G, said that when Rona was first trans?
ferred to that building he was placed
on the second floor, where the mildest
cases are confined, but-where, he ad?
mitted, there was one violent patient.
He could not remember why Rona had
been placed on the second floor in?
stead of the first, where he now is,
and denied that he had told Rona that
he was placed there as a disciplinary
measure, as charged by Mr. Rossdale.
Dr. George R. Gates, one of the phy?
sicians at the hospital, and Dr. Edward
G. Zabriskie, a psychiatrist and speci?
alist, in nervous and mental diseases,
both surprised Martin W. Littleton,
who represents the public on the inves?
tigating committee, by^saylng that they
thought it perfectly p'roper to confine
a "border-line" case with the actively
insane. Mr. Littleton declared that it
was a little difficult for the lay mind
to grasp that.
Dr. Zabriskie, in his testimony, gave
the hospital a clean bill of health. He
said that he had made several Inspec?
tions, and that, in his opinion, there
was nothing to be improved in the
manner in which the institution was
conducted.
increase in Grain
Ship Rate Reported
Advance of 50 Per Cent for
October and November to
European Ports
Reports were current in marine
circles yesterday that steamship lines
in the Continental and United King?
dom conferences had made substantial
advances in grain rates for October
and November. It was said that the
Continental rates were 8 cents for 100
ounds in September, 9 cents in Octo
er and 12 in November. The United
Kingdom rates were reported at Is 6d
a quarter for October and la 9d for
November. Recent rates to Continental
ports have been 8 cents on the average,
with some business as low as 7 cents.
Despite the definite nature of the
reports, several officials of steamship
lines denied that there had been any
meetings of the conferences and
pointed out that the grain rates had
been open for months.

notion
A conservative New York daily observes that if the Daugherty injunction against
strike propaganda were literally enforced, every striker would be "doomed to a life of
silent meditation and nrayer." Since the popular reaction to the injunction obtained
against striking railway men is likely to determine whether future officials will have
recourse to it, it is of immense importance to show just where the press stand on it.
The leading article in THE LITERARY DIGEST this week (September 16) pre?
sents all shades of public opinion. Labor leaders feel that the injunction "denies them
free speech and peaceful assembly," and puts the Government in the role of a strike?
breaker, while the railway executives feel that the government has "gummed the works" just as
they had the strike beaten. I
The St. Louis Star and the Scranton Times agree that this injunction is a strike?
breaking weapon, pure and simple, and the Indianapolis Union calls it "a highly danger?
ous precedent" which "can but in the end lead to deep resentment in the hearts of
millions and to eventual Bolshevism, that is, hatred for the class favoring the injunction."
While many editors decry the injunction there are .scores of others who feel that Attorney
General Daugherty was compelled to take just the action he did take.
The places of striking shopmen can be filled, but, we read in the Chicago Daily
News, "burned bridges, wrecked trains, locomotives subjected^ to sabotage, peaceful work?
ers beaten or killed?these prove the existence of active and widespread criminality." This
leading feature-article in the "Digest" is illustrated by appropriate pictures.
