‘COLLECTIVE
BARGAINING
THREATENED’
Union Mine Leaders Turn At
tention to West Vir
ginia.
POPEN SHOPS MENACING
Leaders In the nation-wide coal strike
torned their attention toward non-union
fields of West Virgin.a today, where their
organization activities were enjoined by
Federal Judge McClintic.
Legal counsel of the miners met at
Charleston to perfect an appeal from the
decision, which union chiefs regard as
a direct slap at collective bargaining.
The open shop fields of West Virginia
are more menacing to the success of the
strike, than any other single factor. :n
the entire situation,-it was said. They
have been the center of unionization work
for a number of years, especially since
the strike, started April 1.
It was learned the union agents are
still busy there pending the outcome of
the conference of attorneys who met to
review all legal aspects of the matter. The
attorneys will endeavor to find a way to
overcome the restraint granted fifty-eight
mining companies in the Winding Gulf
field and. sixty-three companies in the
Thacker field, which includes Mingo
County, scene of bloody mine war.
“The United Mine Workers regard is
suance of these writs as an unwarranted
trespass upon the rights of citizens and
an effort to strip the United Mine Work
ers of their natural and legal rights as
an organization;” ’John I. Lewis, presi
dent of the miners, declared at head
quarters here.
’ '“We have no objection to being en- I
Joined from doing things in themselves'
unlawful, but these writs seek to enjoin .
the union from eommiting acts which are j
lawful. Our attorneys have been in- '
structed to prepare an appeal and carry j
these cases to higher courts.”
The improvement in railroad finances
the result of huge decreases In op- ,
erating expenses, although revenues also j
showed declines. The revenues totalled j
5101.325.70i) for the month, a decrease of
1.3 per cent over the same month of
1021, while the expenses totalled $324,423, |
500. a decltne of 15.6 per cent over Feb- ’
ruary last year. IVspite these decreases,
the reports showed 14 per cent more
freight was' handled in February than j
in the same month of the preceding year.
Roads in the eastern district alone i
showed more than a 6 per cent return 1
on their valuation. In this district, tbs!
net income was 529,535.500, or a return :
of 7.17 per cent comparo to a deficit;
of 57,627.592 in February. 1921.
In the southern district, the carriers:
reported a net operating income of $7,045,-
SOO. compared to 5466.257, the same month
a year ago. This was at a rate of re
turn of 3.95 per cent.
Western carriers reported net incomes
of $11,177,900 compared to 51.954,400, al- j
though this gave them a rate of re- i
turn of only 2.46 per cent.
The prosperity of eastern roads com- j
pared to the low returns in western and j
southern carriers, it was explained, re- }
suited from the threatened coal strike
which served as a stimulus to transpor
tation of coal. The commission also was
informed that rate reductions in bay and j
grains had failed to materialize In ex- '
pected increase in traffic of these com- j
modifies.
The tabulations, it was stated, were
based on reports from 200 railroads.
