Owen in district court yesterday
morning temporarily blocked the ef
forts of tin. city nf Tulsa to obtain
the appointment of a receiver for
the Oklahoma N.itinul ! company.
Immediately following the sus

plaintiff's petition on the grounds
that the court was without Jurisdic

city gavij notice of appeal from the
decision lo lbs supreme court of the
state This appeal. In raaea wherein
a receivership Is naked, must be pre
senled to the supreme court within
111 dnvs.
Judge Owen, in his opinion Ten
dered on the hearing, said: "The
application far a receivership Is not
based upon any expressed provision
of the statutes under which the
court might appoint a receiver, and
In my Judgment Is not Included In
the blanket ptovislon which pro
vides that receivers may be appoint

heretofore been appointed in enulty.
It does not appear that the- applica

proceeding for liny relief. It Is true
that for the purpose of getting Jurla
dicilon I might stretch tho matter
and hold that this suit Is one for the
specific performance of a onnrac.L
Hut this would be to practice a
ftiiud on my own Jurisdiction. The
ultimate end sought Is the Appoint

candidly stated, to tide over an

be remedied, but does not Justify tha

spokesinii 11 for the operators In Ihe
wage negotiations of the post few
months, late today Indicated that the
"porn tuts will nbble by the decisions
of the commission appointed by the

Mr. Penna staled that the. presi
dents plan for appointment of a
commission dlffeied In soluu detnlls
from the plan agreed upon by the
operalois, nnd expresaed Ihe belief
that the operators should have been
consulted before It was presented to
Din miners. Jin said, however, that
It iigiend in principle with the reso
lution adopted bv ilin opcrutorg.
Mr. Penna s statement follows:
"On November 2J7 the coal opera
lots' committee, coin posed of elglii
lepreseniutlvea of rani, state, In
an eipial number of represent. itlng
ed the following lesoltlon:
" T h.it there be a tribunal created
of equal numbers of Hie minors' rep.
resentiitlves und coil operators, and
an equal number of representat lug
the public, to whom all Ihnau differ
ences shall be refeired, and that we
ugrae to accept the result, lo conatl
(ute a contract effective until March
31, III a.'.'
"Tho operators nil voted "yes;"
all of Din mil, i-rs voted 'no,' and tha
meeting adjourned without date.
In principle this resolution Is
In perfect accord with Ihe preal
dents acllon. II differs, however, In
some, details ubout which we should
have been consulted In advance.
