the United Mine Workers' association
to jail for contempt of his injunction
of June 19, as follows:
Thomas Haggerty, ninety days in
jail William Morgan, Bernard ltice,
Peter Wilson, William Blakcly,
George Bacon, Thomas Laskavlsli, six
ty days each. The cases of Albert Re

Steve Toenike, Hungarians, who do not
understand English, were passed until
the afternoon session, in order that in
terpreters may be present.
Mother" Jones* turn will come la
tcr. It is said she will receive a stifT
tine and will not be jailed. The court
room was filled with an intensely ex
cited crowd of miners and officials of
labor unions. Judge Jackson's hugo
frame shook with emotion as he dra
matically emphasized portions of his
Attacks on Union Methods.
The judge's decision was prefaced
by the bitterest attack" ever made on
union methods. It goes even further
than Judge Jenkins' famous order, or
the decision of Judge Kolilsaat forbid
ding pickets speaking to workmen,
The miners agree that this is the most
effective blow that could be struck
against the men's cause in their at
tempt to get out the 12,000 miners ip
the Fairmont coal field.
In my long experience on the
bench," said Judge Jackson, "I can
not recall a single occasion where any
court, either federal or state, ever
abused the writ of Injunction in what
is known as strike cases."
The court then went on to charge
•'Mother" Jones and tho others were
In a conspiracy to get the miners to
quit work. He said: "Where a con

as In this case, either by threats, in

Judge Jackson said the utterances
of "Mother" Jones In her address near
the Pinnlcklnnick mines June 20
should not emanate from a citizen of
this country. "Such utterances," lie
remarked, "are the outgrowth Qf the
sentiments of those who believe in
communism and anarchy." It was the
abuse of free speech, according to the
Jurist, that Inspired the anarchists and
assassin to take the life of our late be
loved president.
The Judge then reviewed the speech
of "Mother" Jones, in which she is re
ported to have called the miners slaves
and cowards said she did not care
anything for injunctions—that if ar
rested the jails would not hold the agi
tators who came to take their places,
and advised the men to strike, winding
up by calling the judge a hireling of
