John Mitchell and Frank Morrison, officers of the American Federation of .Labpr, $nd strongly protesting sçalnst the senteuces of imprisonment passed upon them by Justice Wright. The resolutions say: The action of Justice Wright In the cases can never be accepted with any de cree of justification by the mine workers of America. We maintain that there was no violation of the law of the land j by our fellow workmen and that all their ι ecta complained of were strictly within | the right* as guaranteed to every citizen ι of this country by our constitution and ! organic law. We hold that the Sherman antitrust law was never Intended by congress to apply to labor unions, and the construction placed thereon by the federal courts is destructive of the usefulness and only power of organized labor for its protec- I tlon and advancement. We further protest against the uncalled for and extreme bitterness of the arraign ment of the defendants by Justice Wright as unparalleled In judicial proceedings in the courts of our land. We regard his action therein and the •cepe thereof as a direct blow gainst our individual liberties aa workmen and j — "against our labor unions. Ws condemn' the penalties imposed as unjust, unrea- ! sonable and shockingly exoessive. ALLIGATOR STEAK FOR TAFI Louisiana Saurian to Be Served at a ; Banquet In New Orleans. New Orleans.
