Governor Again Gives Warning That Troops Will Be Called if Needed
Union Leaders Are Actively
; Counseling Peaceful
. . Measures
Company Complains of Vio-
lence in South of Mar
ket Section
The car strike, situation was charac
terized yesterday by, increased patron
age of the cars operated on the north
side of the city and more serious vio
lence and interruption of the service In
the Potrero and other outlying dis
tricts. The company «ent out 200 cars
and owing to the greater mileage In
operation the police were unable to
guard the entire system. In consequence
of which outbreaks occurred at several
points. v
! The striking* ; carmen displayed a
' commendable self-control for the most
[part, but there seems to be an influence
iat work to prevent the peaceable opera
jtlon* of the cans. The governor issued
\u25a0 another statement last night, In which
he repeated his threat to call In the
.'troops and take control of the situation
(at the Instant he felt that the rioting
jfcad gone to such 'an extent that he
1 would be Justified In such drastic ac
jtlon. It was pointed out last night that
I much 'depended on the union men. and
[their sympathizers. They must act with
'cool heads 4n the next few days or. a
{situation would result from which it
\u25a0would take the city years to recover.
I The union leaders continue to ex
press their confidence In peaceful meas
ures and In the boycott on the cars as
(effective to bring the company to terms.
,The"y hold that the United Railroads is
\u25a0losing money each day and that | Cal-
Jioun will be forced in the end to treat
'trith them. It is pointed out that these
.hopes of the union-would.be shattered
.\u25a0should the governor be persuaded that
•jit was necessary for him to- call "put
.'•the troops.
The United Railroads claims that it
• ; was compelled to discontinue the ser
* vice in Kentucky street yesterday on
account of disturbances there, and that
, the San Bruno cars were run into. the
barns for a time for the same reason.
k-Duringk -During one outbreak of stone throw
lag a nonunion motorman was serious
ly injured.
In the Western addition conditions
were almost . normal. The cars were
well patronized and in later hours of
f he afternoon It was hard to gain a
.foothold on the steps of the crowded
•• cars.

United Railroads May Invoke
the State Antitrust Law
Union Is Said t6 Be
Formed to Restrain Trade" ".
One, of the agencies which" the United Railroads "wiUVemploy^
to ,wipe out the carmen's union may be the enforcement of the
provisions of the I .Cartwright antitrust law. The ' measure?-, designed
U> crush monopolies; is, possibly/to be made ; a- weapon in the-haiTds
of the corporations. It is claimed that ;if the Cartwright law with- r
stands the tests \u25a0of the courts' it* will deprive * organizecl labor of its
strongest arm — thje boycott. " ~ • '\u0084 '•
Officials : of the United' Railroads freely admit that .-Moritz
Rosenthal, the Standard Gil ; counselor i mported , for the defense of
Calhoun, is at- work on the; Cartwright law. The purpose ''/of -his
labors is to- invoke^the law against the carmen's union. Sustained
in a test case based j^on '; the carmen's strike, the Cartwright law'
would ; render the -boycott ; a thing, of^California's \ past./ -The law ? is
probably the most sweep ingly- comprehensive measure of * itsMcind
written on an .American , statute book. It was not 'designed as a
weapon against "organized labor, but attorneys* content! that its
provisions are so broad .that labor unions fall within them.. ;
As to the constitutionalityjof the enactment 'there is : a ;di vision
of opinion. - Queerly enough, some : lawyers \ claim to .believe %that
if the law were tested in a suit against a corporation, ithe supreme
court would, sustain It, '\ but ; that .the*.- v " VI ' "' ' -"^"^ ;:^.; :^.
court would. liold the law untenable if
invoked' against organized labor. Other
! attorneys confess 'to a r , belief diame
trically opposed to this.; Both parties
seem to be agreed that organizations
such as labor unions fall within the
definition of trust as laid down by the
Cartwright law.. If this contention is
correct and the law^ is ; sustained; a
strike such as the carmen's present
movement would render all of its par
ticipants liable as conspirators against
. It the Cartwright law can be made
applicable to the striking. carmen every
member, of the union could be subjected
to fines of not less than $50 nor more
thin $5,000 for each day of the strike;
or at the option of the cburt could be
imprisoned for not less than six months
nor more than one year for any, viola
tion of the provisions of the act.' Each
day's violation is expressly, made; a
e'eparaXe offense. *_«.. If J the ; law is held
constitutional convictions ."will be ex
tremely easy, under the special rule of
evidence prescribed. Thel inclusion of
labor organizations- hinges upon .'the
court's construction of the definition
of ' a ; trust. '
The law defines a trust as a combi
nation of capital, skill or acts by two
or more persons, firms, partnerships,'
corporations pr associations of
sons or of any - two or ; more of them
for. a number of designated purposes.
The Resignation of- these purposes; is
comprehensive: in the extreme. v. .*,
First is the creation or carrying out
of restrictions in trade .or commerce.
The second purpose put under the ban
Is that of limiting or reducing the pro
duction or reducing or increasing the !
price of merchandise or " of ' any - com- I
modity. This provision is expected . to
raise the much mooted question T of \u25a0 la-_
bor as a commodity/ The 1 third fdesig-*
nated - purpose is- still < more compre
hensive. In that It- brings within; the
trust definition"' combinatons for the
purpose of preventing competition^ in
manufacturing 1 , making. ".transpQrta-
tion, sale or purchase of merchandise,
produce or of any commodity.
; The fourth designation is the fixing
at any standard or figure, whereby its
price to the public or consumer shall
be In any manner controlled,or.;estab
lished, any article,, or commodity ' of
merchandise, produce or commerce In
tended for sale, barter, use or con
sumption within the state. And finally,
any agreement to execute or carry out
a contract or agreement for the con
trol. of the price of any commodity,
article of trade, in any way brings the
parties to the agreement within the
definition of a trust that is. declared
unlawful and against public policjv
The provisions for the enforcement ;
of the act are simple In their; terms, |
but some of them mark radical . de
partures. The duty- of" invoking:- the
law is laid upon the attorney general
or 'the district, attorneys-t hrough "ac
tions for. the 1 forfeiture- of franchise,
charter or privileges '. and 'the • dissolu
tion of .the offending 'cor
poration or association/ under thexgen
eral statutes. ?^[email protected]|S^g^^^ '_
Foreign corporations or associations
exercising any; of : the powers of a cor
poratlon;which' may f violate any _of . the
provisions of the act are to be excluded
from doing •• business within the ' state.
The duty, of enforcing this provision is
laid upon the attorney general. 'Aiid
the secretary of state is authorized \ to
revoke ,the license *of i. any i such \u25a0\u25a0 ' cor
poration ; previously authorized by him
to operate •within the state.. ; '
Any violation? of any .provision .: of
the act is declared ] a" conspiracy, against
trade, punishable' by fine i or : Imprison
ment,; or both. The 4 minimum '; nne ;\u25a0 is
$50, ; the ' maximum $5,000," ; for each : of -
fense. minimum 'of
is six months, and the v maximum : one
year for each-. offense. J The; conspiracy
provisions are -very .comprehensive:
They bring within x the r dragnet r any
person who :.; may % become V engaged In
the transaction -or, who may aid or
advise in its commlsslonP-
This provision' is said -to be broad
enough to* entangle ; the* legal /adviser
of any violator of the * law, who ; had
acted on his attorney's advice! -/\u25a0 In , ad
dition to> advisers; the-, law-;holds> any
agent' or servant > of . the; offending com
bination ; who.' knowingly.- participates
in the forbidden ;to be "a
conspirator : and ' subject \ to* the > punish l
ments provided' for the" principals. > -
A radical departure and one on which
come attorneys" think Uhat the- statute
will, fall is thY, abrogatlon a of ;the = rule
"of * best evidence. -; The' Cartwright . law,
'expressly v provides- that Ithe;" unlawful
agreements or z combination ;; may be
proved ;. without i the a production > .of : any.
written' agreement.v The Y character/of
the trust; or,;comblnation" alleged may
be proved .by "evidence -of 'Its general
reputation* as such..; '_
Another/ radical "departure Is "the. re
moval of the -i protection /. formerly
thrown around ,an Junwillingi witness.
Under the provisions < of • thejCartwright
law ; no. witness i may refuse " to i produce
books/. or., papers L or, to;''answer.rqueS'
