POLICE STRIKERS LOSE

i Massachusetts Supreme Court Re
fuses to Order Reinstatement
Boston, Nov. 8.?The Supreme
Court denied yesterday the' petition
of the officers of the Boston Police
men's Unicn. who sought restora
tion to the positions from which
they were removed by Commis
sioner Edwin Curtis because of
their affiliation with the American
Federation of Labor. The court
acted 011 the request of the former
policcmen, headed by John F. Me
Innis. president of the union, for
a writ of mandamus to compel the
Commissioner to restore them.
Judge Carroll held that they were
not ertitled to reinstatement be
cause they had failed to avail
themselves of remedies contained
in the anti-coercion act.
Tt was the suspension1 of the 19
officers cf the union by Commis
sioner Curtis that precipitated the
strike of policemen September 7.
The patrolmen were tried by the
Commissioner on charges that they
had violated departmental rule by;
their union membership and activi- i
ties and were found guilty. Sen
tence was withheld for a time while
ur.icn members announced only
that any punishment of their lead
ers would be met by a strike. With
in a few hours of the union officers'
suspension the other members of
llhe union walked out.
Commissioner Curtis, through
counsel, contended that the petition
ers had no standing in court be
cause they were not members of
the police force when they filed
thc:petition. They failed, he said,
to take advantage of their right to
demand a review of the Commis
sioner's action under the anti-coer
cion act. of J918. Accordingly, lie
held, the action of the Commis
sioner became final and conclusive.
It was on this ground that Judge
Car;c!l held the former patrolmen |
wer?} without redress.

PROUD OF HER VIRGINIA BLOOD
Lady Astor Shows Spirif When Asked
Why She is Not Spending
Energies in U. S.
Plymouth, Nov. 8.?"Do net think
for one minute I am ashamed of my
Virginia blood," snapped Lady Astor
:his afternoon at a woman's meeting
when she was asked why she was
not spending her energies in Amer
ica, where there, are so many social
evils as here.
"What do -you want me to do??j
sit at home and'hold my hands?"j
Lady Astor went on. "I married in i
England, my interests for ten years !
have been in Plymouth, every drop of j
blcod in mv veins is Angio-Saxon.
and I am proud of my American
birth."
Lady Aster's eyes flashed and she
gestured for a moment. Resuming!
her speech, she declared women:
would be the ones to bring about, the;
working of the League of Nations.
"Men tell you they had Rood times
at the front." Lady Astor asserted,
"'but I do not believe a mother with '?
ri son there ever had a good time."
"Men have physical ccirage," she
added, "but they often lack moral.
courage, and that's the k nd of cour-;
age most needed today."
Answering another bombardment
of questions, Lady Astor said:
"There arc two sections of the la-1
bor party?one embrac e tried and t
true trade unions;, the other young in-:
tellectua'ls. I know the latter as red
hct Bolshevik cranks. Half of then)
never fought in the war,, and most .of
them have never been: working-men.
They are heart and soul of the ^de
pendent labor party."
