Admonished Against Use
of 'Cutting, Slashing
Bj the Associated Press.
LONDON, Ky., June 21.—Govern
ment and defense counsel in the Har
lan anti-union conspiracy trial were
admonished by Federal Judge H.
Church Ford against further “cutting,
slashing remarks” as the defense called
up its second witness today.
The court—while the Jury was ex
cluded—overruled a defense motion for
a mistrial on the basis of a remark by
Assistant Attorney General Brien Mc
Mahon, but rebuked lawyers for both
sides and warned:
"If there are any further such in
dulgences, appropriate punishment
will be imposed.”
Mr. McMahon admitted saying while
clashing with a defense attorney dur
ing examination last week of a Gov
ernment witness who said efforts had
been made to obtain from him a per
jured affidavit, "your trouble is that
you tried something and got caught
with it.”
He said he did not mean to impugn
any defense lawyer, but used the word
“you” In a general sense. Forney
Johnston and Charles I. Dawson of
defense counsel and Judge Ford said
they did not hear the remark.
The only witness used yesterday was
W. Arthur Ellison of Knoxville, Tenn.,
a defendant personally, president of
the defendant Mahan-Ellison Coal
Corp.. and former president and a
present member of the Executive
Board of the Harlan County Coal
Operators’ Association.
Ellison denied the operators banded
together to fight unionism, and said
the association made “every effort”
last year to agree with the United
Mine Workers on a contract for the
Harlan coal field.
He said all negotiations broke down
when the operators Insisted "that we
be given a contract as good as those
given operators in other fields.”
Dubious of Spending.
Britain’s greatest economists con
cluded several years ago that Amer
ica’s remedy of spending as a spur in
depression was useless unless the
right atmosphere of confidence
reigned among its business people.
