Yet with a knowledge of these facts before him, Judge Blair issued an injunction, restraining the union molders, among other things, from: "Interfering with or attempting to interfere with the plaintiff's employes for the purpose of inducing them to join a labor union without the con sent of the plaintiff from persuading, urging, or encouraging the plaintiff's employes to join a labor union, and thereby violate their contract of em ployment with petitioner from en deavoring by threats, menaces, vio lence, intimidation, representation, or promises of better pay, shorter hours, or better conditions, to induce plain tiff's employes to leave the services of plaintiff." After reading the text of this in junction, it is not hard to understand why workers, both white and colored, are leaving the state of Georgia by the tens of thousands. Courts Haven't Last Word This point is touched upon by John P. Prey, editor of the International Molders Journal, who comments upon Judge Blair's injunction as follows: "It has been amply demonstrated by the country's industrial history that injunctions can not make men work, and it is also being demonstrat ed that injunctions do make men think, and that thinking makes men act collectively to protect their rights. A judge sitting upon the bench, by a stroke of a pen, may enjoin men from endeavoring to organize their fellow men, when these happen to be trade unionists but this stroke of the pen in this land of free men is not the last word, and cannot be made so. "A molder's right to organize and solicit membership is in every way equivalent to the right of a Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis or a Rotary Club, or any vther WATCH FOR THI3 label JOHNSTON jain^ decision which held that peaceful per suasion, promises of better pay, shorter hours, or better conditions, were unlawful methods. "Judge Blair's injunction may be considered of temporary advantage to the foundrymen who discharged their molders because they had become members of our organization, but the decision is an injury to the state of Georgia, and an irreparable injury if the position taken by Judge Blair is to be followed by other courts, because, among other thingfi, it will serve to drive competent mechanics out of the state more effectively than the advantage taken of negroes has already served to drive many thou sands of them into other portions of the country. The court as a lawfully created judicial institution, is entitled to respect a decision of the court which gives to employers rights and privileges which are denied to wage earners is not entitled to respect, because it definitely sets aside well established, definitely understood con stitutional rights." But it remained for a California judge to issue the prize injunction, which abolished tvial by jury in cer tain cases and left Daugherty's best effort far in the rear of the injunc tion race. It was a temporary de cree, but its loving frienjls hope to see it join the ranks of the "We're here to stay" injunctions. Court Sole Judge of Guilt The California decree was the work of Superior Judge Charles O. Busick, of Sacramento county, who issued a state-wide injunction under which membership in the I. W. W., or affil iated bodies, will be construed as con tempt of court punishable by six months imprisonment without a jury trial. The injunction was made valid in every county in the state and any superior court was given jurisdiction. Observe the beauty of this injunc tion. If you are brought before a court on the charge of being a mem ber of the I. W. W. the judge will be sole master of your fate. You may never have heard of the I. W. W., let alone being a member of the organi zation, but if the judge doesn't like your face, he can send you to jail for six months. Neat, eh? As the New York World says: "California has a criminal syndical ism law passed chiefly against the In dustrial Workers of the World, but much difficulty has been found in the enforcement of the statute because of the old-fashioned assumption that the prosecution must prove its case in court. A judge has been in duced to issue an injunction under which mere membership in the I. W. W. can be interpreted as contempt of court and punished by six months' imprisonment. There will be no ne cessity then of a jury trial. No ne cessity of proving anything, in fact, because the matter of membership will rest on the discretion of the judge who does the punishing. "If the injunction is made per manent it will be valid in every county and any superior court will have jur isdiction. Mr. Daugherty himself has never evolved a more simple solution of economic problems than that. If there is discontented radical labor in California, send it to jail for contempt of court. Then it will come out of jail satisfied and happy and duly im pressed with the state's sense of in herent justice—perhaps. "New York long ago recovered from its attack of Luskism, but Cali fornia is still delirious, and is raving." California, however, does not boast the only court which is aiming blows at the right to trail by jury. Simul taneously with Judge Wilkerson's de cision making permanent the Daugh t. J.

What Befell an Editor As varoius parts of the country come to the front with injunctions against workmen, New Mexico dis tinguishes herself by permitting a judge to send an editor to jail for attacking a political ring in San Mig uel county. The editor is Carl C. Magee, of the New Mexico Tribune of Alberquerque, who has been fighting the political ring for two years. He made mild criticism of a ji#lge in Santa Fe county, and for this was indicted and convicted for libel in San Miguel before a jury not one of whom could read English. Sentenced to from one year to eighteen months in the penitentiary, Magee protested in his paper against the methods of the court and was re peatedly cited for contempt, the last time being sentenced to 360 days. Fortunately New Mexico has a gov ernor who recognized that Magee was a victim of judicial usurpation and he pardoned the editor of both the libel and contempt charges, declaring that in his opinion Magee had been persecuted, not prosecuted and that the convictions had been a disgrace to the state. New Mexico's sister state of Ari zona enjoys the benefits of another kind of injunction, just issued by Fed eral Judge Erskine in California, re straining the Arizona minimum wage commission from enforcing the Ari zona minimum wage law. The United States supreme court decision de claring unconstitutional the District of Columbia minimum wage law was cited by the judge to sustain his in junction. The legal reasoning may be all right, but advocates of the minimum wage law point out it does n't help the women workers of Ari zona. Kentucky in Limelight, Too Kentucky falls into line with a de cree, which though merely comic, shows the growing tendency to turn to a jud^e to remedy all ills by in junction. John Alton, 65, was the victim, being enjoined from marrying, visiting or even talking to a foun tain woman whom he had come all the way from Minnesota to see. The excuse for the injunction was that the woman had a little money and Alton was suspected of being more interested in the money than in the lady herself. This outline of recent injunction cases has not mentioned other as saults by the courts on organized la bor, such as the recent decision of the Washington state supreme court that unions are liable for damages suffered during strikes, a decision which is being vigorously fought by the Washington State Federation of Labor. Anti-labor court decisions have recently also been given in Wis consin and other states. And so it goes. As the workmen and farmers of Minnesota, watched with approval by the rest of the na tion, demonstrate their desire for progress in government and industry by electing Magnus Johnson to the United States senate, the courts strike blows at liberty and freedom all over the nation. The tide of judi cial tyranny and usurpation is ris ing. Where will it end? Subscribe for The Press.
