Washington, D. C? Sopt. 7.?When
Attorney-General Dauglierty appears
in person or by proxy before tlie Federal
District Court in Chicago Monday
to ask that the injunction issued
against striking railroad shopmen bo
nuulo norinunem ho nrobablv will suir
gest to the court a modification o?
somo of its most sweeping provisions.
The changes under discussion in a
measurable degree will be a concession
to criticisms which have been
hurled at the temporary order of th?>
court from many quarters. They will
meet, it is understood, the suggestions
of Administration Senators who have
folt that tho Government went too
far though they are in sympathy with!
and ready to support the course tak-'
Mr. Daugherty said today that ho j
was planning to go to Chicago to pro
sent again tho Government's argu-;
ment. It is not certain, however, that
he will go. In any event tho Govern '
ment will offer a mass of evidence ro
garding acts of violence against the
railroads and will ask tho taking o? J
testimony from union heads regard-j
ing them.
No official statement has been made
with regard to modifications of the
temporary restraining order. In fact,
tho only official statements from both
the White Mouse and the Department,
of Justice, made soon after the temf>
orary order was issued, were to the
effect that the injunction proceeding.-?
would bo pressed to the utmost and
the Government might go further it
it was necessary. j
Conditions iu the strike have chang
ed materially since that time, however.
Attorney-General Daughcri.?
said that conditions with regard to
violations had been greatly improved.
The improvement has been so market
that the Department of Justice is lay
ing off United States marshals appoint
ed to protect railroad property and
r a. I road workers.
The injunction was drawn to provent
violence and destruction and was
aimed against an ycouspiracy or concerted
effort in making or inducing
trouble. It whs otllcially stated today
tllllt t ll r* nrn/?l?n<h^cr ??no
o?l to prevent labor unions or striH-1
era from engaging in any luwl'ul tunc 1
tion or pursuit,, and It was u/Ilea J
that meetings of strikers have not'
been interfered with by Government!
law otneers, though i,n many quarters]
it was contruod tliat they infght do 1
.so under tho orders issued.
At the invitation of Mr. Daugherty'
Senator Borah (Idaho) visited his
oflleo today and had a lengthy
view with him relatilvo to tlio injunc
tion proceedings.
After the interview Mr. Borah said ;
he did not wish to indicate the posiI
tion 011 the subject assumed by tlio!
' Attorney-General. "In my opiniofn tt'
is not improper for me to say what'
he told me," added Senator Borah.
Then he gave his part of the inter
view with the Attorney-General,
which lie sahi was in substance:
"I told him tliat in my opinion
iirere ?iru provisions ill me illjllilCUOli
beyond the power of tlio egurt 10
grant; that they are in violation of
tlie Constitution and, being there, ilid
not help his ease. .
I *
"On the other hand the fact of tlieii ,
boing there will delay the adjustment,
of the real controversy involved. i
"I called his attention to the clause
tieing up the funds of the shopmen,
the right of discussion, interviews,
and newspaper publications that wove
especially offensive and objectionable.
Mr. Dorali refused to say whether
the Attorney-General concurred in
any or all of his opinions on the ques
tion of (lie injunction. . I
Howover, the view prevails at th*a t
Capitol thai tl*e injunction will bt<j
modified a<long the lines suggested by,
Senator Horah and that the initiative j
will he taken hy the Government. It
is expected thai the Attorney-General'
will ask the court to modify the order)
which, with the modifications, it. is ho'
lieved, will he made pormanenr. j
Senator Horah sent an answer 1o
the message from John J. Dowd, ehaiv !
man of the Central strike eommilleo j
of Xew York city, which asked the
Senator to move for the impeachment
of the Attorney-General. The repjy U I
"Will reply fully to your telcfn\i?u I
after hearing next. week. In the mean,
time may I say that I am thoroughly
in sympathy with any plan to pr-.v
serve unhampered t ho guarantees
found in our constitution? After an

Lot stand up for it regard loss <>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 lahor for years has so bitterly
criticized. Seeking to light injunction !
with injunction, the International!
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers fit
! ed suit in lbe District of Columbia S\l
j.reme Court asking an injunction
against the United States Marshal and
the United States District. Attorney
in the District of Columbia to prevent
them from enforcing the Chicago injunction
obtained by Attorney-Goner
al Daughertv. The union would enjoin
service of subpoanas upon the officers
of (he electrical workers and
any interference with union meetings
on- nctivitives.
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 Saturday
to issue a temporary injunction. 1
It was alleged hv the plaintiffs that
the injunction issued by Judge Wilk- 1
e?son has no extra-territorial effect, i
and that the court had no authority j
in law or equity to issue the restrain |
Big order. No attempt was made to
summon the defendants in aceordanco
with the provision of the Sherman 1
ri.--* before the injunction was granted
they allego. I
Tho clectricul organization sot forth
that it will ask Justlco Bailey to enjoin
Fodornl officials from hindering
the electrical workers in any of tho
lawful acts necessary in tho conduct
of their organization and of the
strike. ,
Tho petition asserted that tho pu*
poses of the association and of its
members in the strike aro not in restraint
of trade or commerce, but for
the carrying out of the lawful objects
of the association.
No attempt is made by tho brother
hotxl to disguise tho fact that dail?
meetings of the electrical workers aire
for (lie purpose of aiding memliet.
who are on strike.
General denial was set up that the
electrical members, through their
meeting or otherwise committed
un.v unlawful "acts incident to the
vail road strike.
Attorney-General Daugherty declined
to reply to criticisms of soverai la
bor leaders who have charged that n
is attempting to destroy the constitutional
rights of the union inombers.
William II. Johnston, president of
tho International Association of Machinists
and named as a defendant in
tho Chicago injunction, denied that
he Is dodging process servers, and
said he would welcome a visit iron,
one of them.
Referring to Mr. Johnston's statement
tho Attorney-General said lie did
not desire to get into a personal controversy
with any of the defendants
He said, however, that there had been
considerable delay in finding union
Mr. Daugherty said he was surprised
to note that some of the railway ex
ec.utives had Joined in criticism of nit.
It is a good sign that the Government
is on the right track when pronounced
advocates on both sides are
not much pleased with what tho Gov
eminent is doing," he said.
J. 1'. Noonan. chief of the electricn
brotherhood, said there had been
conferences between the strike lea Iers
and the railway executives si live
tlie New York meeting last month. A
meeting of the policy committee or
tho strikers to be held In Chicago
noxt week is for the purpose of discus
sin.u a general strike policy, and to
consider the futuro attitude of the
strikers toward the injunction obtain
ed by Mr. Daughorty.
