Of a New Sort Is Labor
By VICTOR A. OLANDER
Secretary-Treasurer, Illinois State
Federation of Labor
The injunction, as ordinarily issued
against working people during strikes
and lockouts is, in effect, a new sort
of lynch law which ignores the con
stitution and is without sanction of
either statute or common law.
It is a significant fact that the in
junction as issued in labor disputes
is always directed against the work
ing people on strike and never against
the employer. That indicates quite

Intended to Supplant Labor
Board is Victim of False
Washington. The Howell-Barkley
bill has been the subject of more mis
information and more deliberate mis
representation than any bill which has
been before congress in a generation
declared Congressman Barkley, in an
pouncing that the friends of the bill
find it impossible to secure favorable
consideration at this session.
Railroad employes support this
pleasure. It is intended to supplant
the railroad labor board. The prin
ciple of the bill will again be urged
in the next congress, Mr. Barkley
"Those who have opposed it," he
continued, "have systematically mis
represented it, either through ignor
ance or design, by claiming that it left
the public entirely out of considera
tion in the formation of the boards
to decide on questions of wages
when, as a matter of fact, the only
board created by the bill to deal with
wages in any respect is made up
wholly from the public, and all men
who have any interest on either side
are thereby disqualified from member
Every effort to secure a conference
with railroad managers on this bill
has failed, said Congressman Barkley
"In all fairness, I wish, to say that
some of the railroad presidents were
anxious to co-operate, and did their
best to make these conferences possi
ble and of such an extent as to repre
sent the railroad executives gener
ally. But a majority of their col
leagues rejected the idek.
"I indulge the hope that at the
next session of congress we may sue
ceed in passing a law that will cure
the manifest and glaring inequalities
contained in the present law and
which will recognize and protect the
legitimate interests of .the roads, the
men and the public."

Chiropractic Health Service
QUESTION—"If I decide to take Chiropractic Adjustments from
you, c'an I take them when convenient to me? Would like to have
from two to four a week for liver trouble."
ANSWER—When you come to our office with your troubles, you
expect SERVICE. We make a certain charge for Adjustments and
give you certain instructions as to the use of the service you have pur
chased. Our instructions require you to 'take Adjustments REGU
LARLY, at stated intervals, as your case demands. Daily Adjustments
are necessary in most cases, at least until improvement is noted.
If you disregard this advice, you will not get desired results. If you
purchase merchandise and 'throw away your purchase, that is poor
business. When you purchase a Health Service, and then disregard
the advice that is a part of that service, you have thrown away
half of your chance to get well. This is not only poor business but
it is our business to see that you do not do it. A Spinal Analysis
is necessary before we can give you definite instructions, but— .,
