ADDeal in Conviction in Shop
men’s Strike Cites Clay-
I . ton Act.
International News Service.
SUPERIOR, Wis., July 3.— Long
a thorn In the side of organized
labor, the question of whether Fed
eral judges may continue to find
guilty and sentence persons cited
for contempt of court under the
Clayton act, is expected to be defi
nitely answered by a decision, ex
pected shortly, from the circuit court
of appeals in Chicago, on an appeal
from the decision of a Superior,
Wis., judge, in a case growing out
of the shopmen’s strike last sum
If the appeal is upheld, defend
ants in such cases in the future
will be entitled to trial by jury.
If not, the only alternative will
be a fight in Congress to obtain
new legislation.
The case at issue is that Sam
Michaelson, et al, including ten
former employes of the railway
company at Hudson, Wisconsin,
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha Railway Company, in which
the men were convicted of con
tempt by United States District
Court Judge C. Z. Luze, of Su
perior. The A. F. of L. has interested
Itself in the case and has filed a
brief supplemental to the appeal
framed by Donald N R. Richberg,
counsel for the Railway Employes’
Department of the A. F. of L., who
represents the convicted men.
Seek Precedent.
Substantiation of the appeal by
the circuit court, It is pointed out,
would establish an important
precedent. There would be small
likelihood of convicting men of
contempt of court in their own
communities, where the populace
usually ie-sJn sympathy with the
strikers, it is hinted.
The appeal is based on a writ of
error and was taken following de
nial of a new trial. The alleged '
errors were embodied in denial of '
a jury trial, “as provided by law”;
alleged insufficiency of evidence, t
' the allegation .that the court was
without jurisdiction to impose sen- i
fences, and that in doing so the
court was in error, for the reason
that the sentence imposed was ■
Without warrant in law. <
Chief discussion has centered on |
denial of jury trial, considered the ]
backbone of the appeal.
While the common law provides ’
that punishment for contempt is 1
entirely within discretion of the 1
court, sections of the Clayton act 1
specifyically providing jury trial on i
demand of the accused are cited. 1
Tho argument is made that Con
gress obviously Intended a de
parture from the common law in <
the section which reads "such trial i
may be by the court or, upon de- i
mand of the accused, by jury.” <
The brief filed with the Chicago ]
court by Attorney Richberg for the i
Railway Employes’ Department of
the American Federation of Labor
Is devoted exclusively to a discus- i
don of the following questions: ]
1. Does the _relationship of dm- i
ployer and employe continue dur
ing a strike or lockout? ,
2. Is a jury trial mandatory in j
contempt cases coming within the
terms of the Clayton act? <
3. If the Clayton act requires a
Jury trial in certain contempr ]
cases, are these provisions of the
•ct unconstitutional?
* “Not Unconstitutional.”
Attorney Richberg, who framed
the appeal, answers both of the
first two questions affirmatively
and with reference to the third
maintains the .section is not uncon
“All Federal courts,” he asserts,
“are mere creatures of Congress
and possess no powers except
those specifically granted to them
by an act of Congress.”
Following an argument that the
* court includes not only the judge,
but the jury and a clerk, as well,
Attorney Richberg concludes his
brief thus:
“For the judge of a court to at
tempt to exercise alone the power
reposed jointly in the judge and a
Jury is to undermine this institu
-tion, the preservation of which is
commonlv regarded as essential by
those who desire to maintain the
American form of government.”
