DISSENTING OPINION IS WRITTEN BY THE CHIEF JUSTICE HOLDS THAT INJUNCTION AGAINST PTTBLJCATION OF "WE DOKT PATRONIZE?' LIST IN FUDE RATIQNISTS rs -VTOLATION OF CONSTITUTION AND ' ABRIDGES FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. Washington, March 12. The Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia handed down an opinion yesterday sus taining the decree of Justice Goulxi of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia granting the injunction prayed for "by the Buck's Stove and flange Company of St, Louis restraining- Samuel Gompera, John Mitchell, JfranJc Morrison and other officers of the American Federation of Labor from prosecuting a toyctt against the stove company and from publishing it In the Federatlonist, the official organ of the Federation, under the caption "We Don't Patronize." Gompers, Mitchell, Morrison and other officers the Federation are still restramea enjoined from conspiring or cora- duct of the complainant or from aid ing or abetting In any boycott or in directly threatening, coercing or In timidating any person from buying, selling or otherwise dealing with the stove company. The jail sentences imposed by Justice "Wright on Gom pars. Mitchell and Morrison for dis obeying the Injunction are sustained. Chief Justice Shephard wrote a dis senting opinion. Ami one other things the Chief Justice safa: "Assuming that the publication of the Bucks Stoves and Range Company in the 'We don't patronize' column of the American Federation! st was a step in the formation of a conspiracy to coerce independent dealers into refus ing to have further business relations with that company, I cannot agree that the publication toe restrained lor that reason. Regardless of its character or purpose the publication is protected from restraint in my opinion by the First Amendment to the Constitution which forbids any law abridging the freedom of the press. "The liberty of the press 'became an established principle of the British Con stitution after a long and arduous struggle, ,and consists in complete free dom from any kind of restraint. The framers of our State and Federal con stitutions were compelled to choose be tween the danger to free institutions that would! result from any abridgment of the freedom of the press and the evils that attend the abuse of that freedom through the frequent publi cation of matter calculated to wound feelings, injure character and rights of property andi provoke the disturbance of the peace. They preferred to risk the latter evil." In conclusion the Chief Justice said that the only remedy which the stove company had in the premises wee by civil action for damages and criminal prosecution, adding: "I cannot agree with the terms of the decree as modified. In my opinion it should be modified so as to restrain the acts only 'by which other persons have been or may toe coerced into ceas ing from business relations with the Bucks' Stove and Range Company, but so as not to restrain the publication of the name of that company In the 'we don't patronise' column of the Ameri can Federationist, no matter what the abject of such publication may toe sus pected or believed! to be." o Ssantst Sigiifttsx st PROPOSED NEW CITY ORDINANCES Assistant to Building; Inspector Uusidcred Other Hatters. At the meeting of the Ordinance committee last night there was a hear ing upon the resolution of Alderman John H. McMurray relative to the making of an ordinance which would provide an assistant building inspector, who would be a competent mason. Nicholas F. Byrne of the local ma son's union appeared and spoke at considerable length upon the matter, naming several jobs where he believ ed better work would have been done and better conditions exist to-day if the city had a mason inspector. J. H. Dougherty another prominent member of the building craft gave a rehearsal of the things he noticed in the building line which escaped the at tention of the present building Inspec tor who was obliged to do the work of three men, looking after the plumbing work, the carpenter work and the ma son work on all buildings in the city. They stated there was a great deal of mason work which should be inspect ed while the work wa in progress be cause it was soon covered from view by the other work which followed. Robert E. Hurley, master mason and member in the Interstate Association told the aldermen that the office of mason inspector would be an unneces sary one. He favored the appoint ment of an assistant inspector who should be a plumber as he believed a plumbing inspector would be more ben eficial to the health of the city. He was of the opinion that the matter of supervision of building was one that was in the hands of the Building com mission and the board of aldermen should not interfere unless the request for the Inspectorship first came from the commission. The committee did not take any ac tion on the matter but decided to con tinue it for investigation. It was voted to plan an ordinance whereby the clerk of the Fire Com mission will pay off the members of the department with cash as is done in the police department. At present the clerk makes up the payrolls, the city clerk draws the checks which require the signature of an alderman and the auditor. The firemen apply to the of fice of the auditor for their pay and sign the payroll there. Chairman R. M. Gould was author ized to draft an ordinance separating the office of hydrant inspector from that of captaincy and providing that the position can be held by a hose man in the department. The position is held at present by Oapt. Daniel Johnson of No. 1 engine company who also holds the title of assistant chief in the department. An additional $100 is paid per year for the inspec tion of hydrants. The work for several years back has been performed by Hoseman Frank Noonan and he will probably be ap pointed to the new place when it is created. The matter of increasing the number of patrolmen in the police department toy five will be taken up at the meeting i to be held next Monday night in ad- Council. Health Officer McLellan appeared be fore the committee with the draft of an ordinance which the Board of Health desired acted upon relative to the sale, storage, handling and trans portation of milk. It was laid over for discussion in the future.

Thomas, Van Huesen and Carl Web ster, while Messrs Lathrop, Radel and Edgar "Webster argued for the nega tive. The contest was close and spir ited) and after much deliberation the Judges, Messrs. Billings, Stapleton and lioewith. gave their decision in favor of the negative. , Joseph Spittler read a very pleasing selection and Clarence Blakeman made a ifSne extemporaneous speech on his experience as traveling salesman. The meeting was followed toy an open debate which was very lively, many taking part. His Victim Returns to Her Home ia Brooklyn Today. (Special from United Press) New "Fork, March 12. Catherine Loersch, the 11 year old sirl whose ab duction and mistreatment by Joseph M. Janer, a wealthy real estate man of Brooklyn, resulted in Janer's sen tence to twenty-one years imprison ment in the Maryland penitentiary, re joined her family In Brooklyn to-day. The paralytic father and sick mother were almost overcome when the pale and trembling slip of a girl, clearly showing evidences of her terrible ex perience, stole timidly. Into the home, after an absence of five weeks. Mrs. Janer, wife of the convicted man, also returned to Brooklyn to day apparently satisfied with the pun ishment inflicted upon her husband. It is reported that she affected a set tlement with Janer before he was led to prison by which she and her chil dren will have the full enjoyment of his big estate.

It is not that its membership is chosen with caution, though such ex clusiveness undoubtedly makes it more eagerly sought. It is not that it gives direct benefits or that it offers protec tion to the family when the bread earner has departed. Not these things alone make the lodge popular. Greater than these is the desire for social com panionship, the love of fellowship, the power of community of interest. Not a substitute for club or church, yet fill ing a place In men's lives that neither occupies, the lodge has developed the old time guild idea and fitted It to mod ern conditions and Is an institution that exerts a tremendous power In business, In politics and in society. So rapidly does it increase In popularity that it shows little Indication of ever wielding less power over men's desti nies than it does today. C. M. Harger In Atlantic. Laat of the Aristocrats. "The old French aristocracy dies with me," cried the Princess de Valmont on her deathbed. She was a bitter old soul, who, born of a long line of un contaminated ancestors and married to a noble of equally superfine strain, had, through her husband's death in financial difficulties, to marry her five children to "abominable persons" of high character, but with the blight of trade or industry In their blood. Her last years were made mournful to her by this pitiful descent, and just before her grandiose last utterance, looking with a bitter smile at her children and grandchildren in tears round her death bed, she broke silence in the following terrible reflection: "We have here," counting on her fingers, "representa tives of carriage making, wholesale grocery, confectionery, coal mining and the stock exchanges, and all grafted on the old tree of the De Valmonts." New York Herald. Bow WnU Yon Like Tilts Butter? The Moor prepares butter in an original way and gets a different taste from the usual one. Fresh butter ("sl bida," as he calls it), as known by us. he despises and uses only for cooking It must be old if it is to be Liked. Af tei it has lain in a hole In the ground for some years and has got a certain ap pearance it becomes a delicacy. To make butter a goatskin is turnetl in side out. It is filled with milk, bound tight and tied to a tree. There it is beaten backward and forward till the butter is made. That is why you can not get butter in Morocco without hairs all through It. The butter is then laid on pieces of wood and the maker goes to sell It. Possible buyers lift the dirty cover, put In their fingers and take out a taste and If the goods do not please close it down again and the salesman pursues his way. Iarnmlx Toe Nails. It has been found by some that the copious application of dried powdered alum Is sufficient to cure most cases of Ingrowing toe nails. The applications are not painful, and the inflamed tis sue is dried up, and a hard, resistant, nonsensitive bed is formed for the nail. The toe is wrapped In a cloth soaked in soap and water for twenty-four hours beforehand, and then the pow dered alum is poured into the space between the nail and Its bed, using cotton to keep the alum in place and repeating the application daily. The suppuration, if any exists, rapidly dries up, pain and discomfort are al most immediately relieved, and, the application being repeated for about five days, a cure usually results. Crasbflna Bore An Englishman, complimenting Amer icans on their skill at postprandial or atory, went on to discuss the possibili ty of boring an audience. He said the severest reproof for a bore which he recollected was that administered by the great Talleyrand while driving with a friend who kept telling him stories. As they passed through the streets of a continental town, which In those days were policed by many sentries, they observed one sentry yawn at his post, and Talleyrand said to his friend: "Hush! We are overheard." Point of Resemblance. Stella Does her auto match her gown? Bella Yes, they are neither of them paid for. New. York Sun, ... . , The D. M Read Co. Established i8$y.
