From Interfering With
Rail Operations
CHICAGO. Sept. 1 (Associated
Press). Suit for an injunction against
all striking employes of the railroads of
the Fnited States and their union offi
cios was filrd in United States district
court today by Attorney General Daugh
crty. The suit was filed shortly after
the arrival of Attorney General Daugh
crtr in Chicago this morning. The idea
for injunction named the railway em
ployes' department of the American Fed
eration of Labor, the six striking shop
crafts and the 120 system federations.
The suit seeks to restrain all strikers
from interfering in any way with the
operation of the railroads.
It was filed before United States Dis
trict Judge Wllkerson. Soon after the
arrival of Attorney General Daughcrty
in Chicago, Ulnckburn Kastcrline, as
sistant attorney general, appeared before
District Jude Wllkerson and began
reading a copy of the petition for a re
straining order. The application was
j far-embracing in character and sought
to prevent all interference with the oper
ation of trains or with railroad prop-
I crty in any way.
Th-? application specifically names the
presidents of the various union organ
izations involved in the present strike
which started July 1, last, following a
wace decision of the railroad labor board
reducing .wages of certain, railway em
ployes throughout the country.
The uit s"eks to enjoin all railway
employes, attorneys, servants, union
agents, associates and members and all
persons acting in aid or in conjunction
tfith them primarily until final hear
ings and permanently thereafter from
in any manner interfering with, hinder
ing fir obstructing railway companies,
their agents, servants or employes in the
operation of their respective railroads
and systems of transportation or the
performance of their public duties and
obligations in the transortation of pas

An innovation in the interesting pro
gram of events at the Valley fair this

OPTIMISM OVER
COAL SITUATION
Relieved Operators Will Modify Condi

Settlement.
PHILADELPHIA.- Sept. l.Pcvel
opments in the anthracite coal tie-up to
day occasioned renewed optimism for an
early settlement of the dispute that has

tance was attached to the statement is
sued by the operators last night that
they will yield on the wage controversy
if impelled by a "public mandate." The
announcement by the operators . that
they will meit again on Saturday was
taken to mean ti t their at'.lud'e will

Does Not Overturn and No Serious
Damage Results.
Two persons, two racehorses and a
show stallion narrowly escaped serious
injury early last evening when a motor
van. conveying the men and horses left
the highway above P.ellows Falls and
plunged down the bank beside the road,
the driver of the van having been blinded
by the strong lights of an automobile
which went tearing by at a speed of -10
miles an hour.
The two persons in the' van were A. A.
Lnrrabee of Winchester. N. 1L, and Mel
vin Dalrymple of I'.ratt leboro. who was
the. driver and owner of the van. The
horses, which were being conveyed in the
body of the vehicle, were Tony ', owned
by Mr. Larrabee, Lady Rrnoks. owned by
Mr. Dalrymple, avd Fayola, ownd by R.
L, Ilrooks of Iirattieboro. The three
horses had been at th Springfield fair,
where Tony C and Lady I'rooks had
been tried out on the t.'aek and where
Fayola had been exhibited" as a show
stallion. Mr. Larrabee was riding in the
body of the van keeping the horses quiet
w hen the accident happened.
The, scene of the accident was about
half a mile orth of the Walpole line,
where the read runs close tc the river's
edge and is a spot which has been the
scene of many accidents. As Mr. Dah
rvt:ip!c was proceeding south at this
point a heavy automobile came tearing
along th" highway in the opposite direc
tion. The blinding lights of the passen
ger car prevented ?Nlr. D.ilrympie from
sieing just where his van was moving
and in an endeavor to keep out of the
way of the oncoming machine the van
was driven too far over the edge oX the
bank and it slid down in a tilted ivnsition.
Mr. Larrabee was thrown against the
interior of the van and sustained several
minor bruises. He said this morning that
it was impossible ta note the number or
ena racter ot the speeding machine
went by "like a streak."

Drive the Booking Clerks on Steamship
Lines Almost to Distraction.
Fully f( per cent of all those sailing
for Europe, this season are making the
trip for the first time. TLiis unusual pro
portion of first-time voyagers is ac
counted f.tr in various Ways. Many
people who crossed regularly" before the
war are less prosperous, while others
have acouiied money in this eriod.
The booking clerks in the steamship
offices meanwhile find thnvselves dealing
with many strange people, who are un
familiar with life aitoard diip. It is often
neces.-ary to explain the most elemen
tary things concerning ship's life.
A richly dressed lady entered one of
the steamship oiliees the other day and
asked th prices of the most expensive
suites. She seemed insatiable in asking
questions about every detail of their fur
nishing and service. The patience of the
booking clerk was well-nigh exhausted.
After the cabins had been fully explained
the prospective customer turned fir the
lHrfla!es. It was explained that the
ports were all the same size, and that
even by paying a higher rate she could
not have " larger windows."
"How far are these windows above
the water?"' she finally inquired.
'Must IS feet." the clerk explained.
"(). I see." the lady observed. "But
how far will they be at high,' tide?"

I
Henry G. Thresher Rrings Action
Against Central Vermont Cadillac
Struck In Railroad Yard.
Henry G. .Thresher of Pawtueket,
R. L, today brought suit through liar
her, Rurber fc Miller's law office agains
the Central Vermont Railway Co. to r
cover $l,."i00 for damages to an Mi torn -bile
sustained Aug. l.". l')21. at the time
a ferry was being operated between th
railroad yard ami the New Hampshire
side of the river on account of the erec
tion of the bridge at Rridge street.. The
papers in the suit were filed today with
the clerk of the Windham county court.
Mr. Thresher's automobile was struck by
an engine in the railroad yard while Mr.
Thresher and his party were crossing the
railroad track at the jioint where K. L.
Ilildreth's Ford truck was smashed hy a
Central Vermont switching engine on
Tuesday of this week, when Harold Put
nam and WaltW New-comb narrowly es
caped with their lives.
Mr. Thresher says the crossing on
which the accident .happened hud been
used many years by E. Ii. Barrows iu
operating his coal business, the roadway
approaching it from the east being be
tween two coal sheds owned by Mr. Har
rows, also by the public generally for
curt ing rubbish to a public dump main
tained by the village of Iirattieboro, and
at the time of the accident it was used
by the public as jvirt of a detour.
He says the defendant neglected its
duty in that it operated locomotives and
trains over the crossing in a negligent
and imprudent manner; did not keep a
man posted there to warn the plaintiff
:rd others lawfully using the crossing;
did not give warning signals by bell or
whistle when approaching the crossing;
did i'ft keep a careful lookout on its lo
comotives mid trains to warn persons us
ing the- crossing ; approached the cross-
j ing with its locomotives and trains out
I of full cmtrol; ami aproached the cross-
ing at a high and reckless rate of speed.
.n Aug. Jo. as stated, Mr. Thresher's
Cadillac car was struck at that point
and greatly damaged, the radiator being
smashed and various other parts being
broken, solely by reason, the plaintiff
claims, of negligence by the railroad
company.

(Tainna, Fla.. Tribune.)
Some jHHiple love horses, some people
love birds, some people love cats, some
people even love some other people, but
where is there a man or woman who
does not love a dog? Not a petted, pam
pered show dog., but just plain dog noth
ing but dog from the tip of his nose to
the tip of his tail.
Give a youngster a dog for a compan
ion and trie kid will never go to the dogs.
A d -g w ill be loyal and friendly, happy
and obedient, mischievous and lovable,. a
doggone friend for anyone. Just a plain
dogvi!l do. A dog without pedigree,
w ithout price, without anything to-boast
of except that, he is only a dog, with a
dog's instincts.1 a dog's manners, a dog's
sincerity, a dog's unswerving faith in
and 'kindness to anyone who will be loyal
and kind to him.
Just a plain dog. In other words, a
mutt, a mongrel, yes. a cur. He will love
his little master or bis little mistress.
Every boy and girl, at some time in. life. ,
is surely entitled to one plain, everyday,
ordinary dog.
