Washington, D. C? Sopt. 7.?When
Attorney-General Dauglierty appears
in person or by proxy boforo the Federal
District Court in Chictigo Monday
to ask that tho injunction issued
against striking railroad shopmen bo
mado perinanont he probably will sug
gest to tho court a modification oi
some of its most sweeping provisions.
Tho changes under discussion in a
measurable degreo will bo a concos:sion
to criticisms which have been
hurled at tho temporary order of tlit,
court from many quartors. They wih
meet, it is understood, tho suggestions
of Administration Senators who hnvo
felt that tho Government wont too
far though thoy are in-sympathy with!
and ready to support the courso tnk-1
CU y
Mr. Daugherty said today that hoj
was planning to go to Chicago to pro
sont again tlio Government's argu-j
ment. It is not certain, however, that
he will go. In any event tho Govern j
niont will olTor a mass of ovidenco ro
garding acts of vlolenco against the
railroads and will aak tho taking o? J
testimony from uuion heads rogard- j
, ing them.
No ofllctal statement has been mode
with rogard to modifications of the
temporary restraining order. In fact,
the only oflleial statements from both
the White House and tho Department'
- of Justice, made soon after the tcmf>
orary order was issued, were to the
effect that the injunction proceeding.*
would bo pressed to tho utmost and
the Government, might go further if
it was necessary.
Conditions in tho strike have clmng
ed materially since that time, however.
Attorney-General Daughori.* :
' said that conditions with regard to
violations had been greatly improved.
The Improvement has been so marke t
that the Department of Justice is lay
ing oft' United States marshals appoint
ed to protect railroad property and
railroad workers.
The injunction was drawn to provent
violence and destruction and was
aimed against an yeouspiracy or concerted
eft'ort in muking or inducing
trouble. It was oillclally stated today
that tho proceedng was never intond ed
to provent labor unions or stnk-1
era from engaging Jn any lawful funcj
tlon or pursuit,. ?ud It was c/Tloa}
that meetings ol' strikers have not;
boon interfered wl'th by Government j
law officers, though J,li many quartorn J
it was contruod that thoy ini?lit do J
.so under tho orders iBBUed.
At the invitation of Mr. Daugherty}
Senator Borah (Idaho) visited his
ofllco today and had a lengthy intOi-|
view with him rolatiivo to tho injunc,
tion proceedings.
Aftor the Interview Mr. Borah said J
. he did not- wiBh to indlcnto the posl?
tion on tho subject assumed by tho |
" Attorney-Goneral. "In my opi.ni(in it j
is not improper for mo to say whatj
he told niet" added Sonator Borah.
Then h'e gave his part of the mtev
view with tho Attorney-General,
which ho said was in substanco:
"I told him tlfat in my opinion
there are provisions In tho Injunction
/I ?9 *1?/V n/Mi..* * r\

grant; that they aro lu violation of
, the Constitution and, being there, did
not help his case. .
"On the other hand tho faet of tneii t
being tiioro will delay the adjustment
of the real controversy involved. i
"I called his attention to tho clause
tioing up the fundb df the shopmen,
tho right of discussion, interviews,
and ncwspnper publications that wore
especially offensive and objectionable.
Mr. Borah refused to say whether
tho Attorney-General concurred in
any or all of his opinions on the ques
tion of the injunction.
Howover, tho view prevails at thu
Capitol that tl*e injunction will Iwl
modified oblong tho Hues suggested by
Senator Borah and that the initiative
' will be taken by the Government, it
is expected that tho Attorney-General'
win hsk mo court 10 momiy 1110 order j
which, with the modifications, it is bo,
lieved, will ho made permanent:. j
Senator Horali sent an answer to
the mossago from John .T. Dowd, chair !
man of tho Central strike committedj
of New York city, which asked tho
Senator to move for tho impeachment
of the Attorney-General. The reply Ulows:
"Will reply fully to your telegram
after hearing next. week. In tho mean ,
time may 1 say that I am thoroughly .
in sympathy with any plan to pr->j
servo unhampered tho guarantees
found in our constitution? After an 1
wo find tho old constitution a fino
charter in time of trouble, do we not I
Lot us stand tip for it regardless <>l
who would undertake to disregard it (
or violate it. Will communicate with
you fully after the hearing."
One of the biggest labor unions to
day resorted to the injunction process
which labor for years has so bitterly
criticized. Seeking to fight injunction !
with injunction, the International !
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers fil ?
ed suit in tho District of Columbia Su
promo Court asking an injunction
against (ho United States Marshal and
the United States District Attorney
in tho District of Columbia to prevent
thenrn from enforcing tlio Chicago injunction
obtained by Attorney-Goner
al Daugberty. The union would enjoin
service of suhpoanas upon (be officers
of (bo electrical workers and
any intorferenoo with union meetings
eti' activitive?.
The suit, was filed by James P.
Noonan and Charles P. Ford, president,
and secretary; respectively of the
union. They served notice that they
will ask Justice Bailey on Saturdav
to is?ue a temporary injunction. !
It was alleged by the plaintiffs that
the injunction issued by Judge Wilkt-ison
has no oxtra-terrltorial effect,
and that the court had no authority
in law or equity to issue the restrain
ing order. No attempt was made to
summon the defendants in accordance.
with the provision of the Sherman
re* before the injunction was granted
they allego.
Tho electrical organization got forth
that It will ask Justice Dailey to enjoin
Fedora I officials from hindering
tho electrical workers in any of the
lawful acts necessary In tho conduct
of their organization and of tho
strlko. ,
Tho petition usserted that tbe pu*
poses of tho association and of its
morubors in tho strLko aro not in restraint
of trade or commerco, but for
tho carrying out of tho lawful objects
of tho association. >ADMIT
No attempt is mado by tho brother
hood to disgulso tho fact that dail.?
meetings of the electrical workers are
for tho purpose of aiding mom bet.
who aro on striko.
General donial was set up that tho
electrical members, through thoir
meeting or ot'ljorwise committed
any unlawful'acts Incident to the
railroad strike.

Wjlliam H. Johnston, president ot
tho International Association ot Machinists
and named as a defendant in
tho Chicago Injunction, denied that
he Is dodging process sorvers, and
said he would welcomo a vlolt iron,
one of them.
Referring to Mr. Johnston's stntement
tho Attornoy-Gonoral said ho did
not desire to get Into a personal controversy

Augusta, 'Mo., Sopt. 11.?According
to early returns United Statos Senator
Frederick Halo of Portland, Republican,
is reelected and Governor
Porcivul P. Buxtor, also of Portland
Republican, is elected Governor by a
majority estiinated at about 25,00l>.

Norway in tho Second, Mayor Leon O.

In 1918, the last "off year," the Republicans

For Governor the same precincts

Thoso returns indicate the election
of Baxter by approximately about 25,
000 plurality. It was the expectation
of the Republican managers that th*>
plurality this year would be much re
duccd from the abnormal majority giv
on President Harding because of local
political conditions.
It was expected that (he total vote
would reach 200,000 or nearly tlu
number voted two years ago in a prra
idcntjal year as the day was clear gen
orally tli rough out the State. ,
Ae a rule the vote is not as large in
an "off year" ns in a Presidential
year, but thousands of women regis-1
