I need not go any further than the words of Lord Alverstone in Imposing sentence upon me.

"There are among the convicted people," be routined, "a number who I know are good bom-st men, who would he Incapable nf the crime at tributed to them. "Popular datum- rim aecuiiipllsli a good deal, as has been proved In this rase, and it has iiinvicted Innocent men. Any one logically consiilcrlng the situation will realize that such u plot as is chin ged would be Impossible to a union of wnrkingiiK'ii? Where would the funds come from'.' Detective Hums may be cleverly boosted up this case, but when It comes up again on appeal the popular clamor will havu subsided and the men will get a fair trial." Timothy Heuley, president of the In ternational Urotlierhood of Stationary nremen. who was In this city yestu day, said: "The trial of the men appeared to be fair and whether they are all guilty or not, the crimes of Individuals will not harm organized labor as a liody. It is a good thing, nt any rate, that the trial Is over nnd that Detective Burns failed In bis efforta to cast sus picion on men 'higher up."

While tho Judge's charge may not have been Intentionally unfair, bo said, he considered the charge as show ing a decided bias agulnst the pris oners. "There Is no doubt In my mind," he continued, "that tne verdict will be reversed on appeal. There Is something queer about the entire trial In view of the methods ustd by representatives of some of the employers, and evidence of a flimsy kind was made to carry weight which would have had no weight if any but members of this union bad been on trial. Organized labor has nothing to fear from such a ca.se, as It Is known to be against all violence " M. J, NeyUiud, business agent of Dis trict 15 of New Y'ork and vicinity of the International Association of Ma chinists, said thut the charge of tho Judge In the case of the convicted dynamiters appeared to be fair.

Waller Drew, commissioner of the National Krecters Association, said; "I think the conviction of thirty eight men In the Indianapolis dyna mite conspiracy cases Is n tremendously good thing for organized labor, i'p. scrupulous men with criminal records have been exploiting tlio labor unions lo their own advantage long enough Such men as worn to-day convicted lu Indiana can be found In other labor organizations KERN APPEALS TO LABOR.
