' held up near Webster. Pa., about

- 10:40 this morning by two mask'
ed men. who after robbing the
; baggage car, made good their
' escape.
The train from Fairmont to
; Pittsburgh, left Brownsville, Pa.,
at 9:40. It is believed the bandits
boarded the train at that point.
They entered the baggage car as
the train neared Webster, and
after binding and gagging Asel
Hicks, express messenger, 'and M.
a safe. 1
At Webster the bandits did not'
wait for the train to stop. They
jumped at a street crossing where
: an automobile. containing two
' men was awaiting. As the robbers
entered the machine, the
driver started away in the direc
. tion of Pittsburgh.
I At the offices of the American j
Railway express it was stated that j
very little money was carried on i
the train and while no report had j
yet been made of the robbery the j
company's loss would not exceed
$100. Pittsburgh and Lake Erie!
Railroad officials also were with- !
out information concerning the |
robbery.
As soon as the people in Webster
realized what had happened,
numbers of them jumped into
their automobiles and set out in
pursuit of the robbers. The road
led them into the hills back from
the Monongahela River.,

RULING STUDIED
Labor Council of Eleven to
Consider Coronado Coal
Case Decision.
CINCINNATI June 17?Labor's I
interpretation of the Supreme
Court decision in the Coronado i
Coal Case, holding international
unions subject to damage suit
under the Sherman antitrust law,
was presented today to the American
federation of labor convention
here by the federation's executive
council, composed of its
eleven officers.
"The Supreme Court cannot
crush the labor movement without
endangering the foundations of
society" declared the report. "The
makes slavery'dither likely or possible.
They will find a- way to
preserve those liberties which
they have and to gain more as
f i m a nasses."
No means for overcoming the
decision was suggested on account
of the creation by the convention
of a speciaL policy committee for
this purpose but the council declared
it was "'extremely alfve." to
attitude of courts as outlined to
the convention by Senator La
Follette of Wisconsin, who urged
a congressional veto of supreme
court decisions.
Organizations of farmers and
other un-incorporated associations
of individuals were said to face
the same plight as the trade
unions. Every organized unit was
liable.
Chief Justice Taft, who wrote
the Coronado decision was said by
the counci to have been purely'
gratituous by including a ruling j
"in anticipation of future cases." !
and the court's concurrence in the
opinion was described as an "un-!
warranted act." j

DEFENSE COUNSEL
IN MURDER TRIAL

Endeavors to Have Evidence
Given in Treason Trial
Used in This Case.
t- /T3-tr
C-HAK-LfJiiiS TUWIN, Juue j- <.??v.
The Associated Press.)?Defense
counsel in the case of the Rev.. J.
E. Wilburn. on trial for complicity
in the killing of a Logan deputy
sheriff at the time of the armedinarch
in the southern coal fields
last summer, today sought to introduce
evidence of Sheriff Don Chafin
of Logan adduced in the William
Blizzard treason trial.
Wilburn's attorneys said the testimony
of E. T. England, attorney
general of West Virginia, and W.
R. Thurmond, president of the Logan
Coal Operators* Association, in
the treason trial also could be introduced
to save time in the present
case, as it was along the same line.
The state objected and called Sheriff
Chafin to Charles Town from
Harper's Ferry, where he had been
staying since the trial began. The
court took the matter under advisement.
Early Takes Stand.
George Early, who was still on
the stand when court recessed yesterday.
again took the stand for
cross-examination.
The witness denied that he told I
Alva Roe of Blair that he had sold)
a rifle to John Wilburn. son of the!
defendant, prior to the killing of
John Gore, the deputy, with whose
death, the Reverend Mr. Wilburn
is charged.
Sheriff Chafin's testimony, defense
counsel said, was relevant to
the Logan County system of deputy
sheriffs. The court yesterday ruled
that the defense could introduce
testimony regarding the deputies'
reputation for peace or violence
among residents on the LoganBoone
County border, and their attitude
toward labor unions.
The sheriff sat with the prosecu tion
counsel while the defense side
was represented by Fred Mooney.
secretary-treasurer of district No.
17, under a treason indictment in
connection with the march.
Defense Calls Porter.

the -first. witness called, for the ,de-I
fense, for - direct examination sai'd;
he found excitement prevailing
about Blair and Sharpies. This
was due, he said, to .the fight between
state police and miners at
Sharpies at the beginning of the
march in August.
The witness also said he had
seen dead and wounded men in the
vicinity of the mining camps.
During cross-examination. Porter
denied that he and William Petrey,
vice-president of district No. I
17. held a meeting at Sharpies to';
advise the miners to take up arms;
at the time of the labor disturb-!
ances.
Porter admitted to prosecution j
counsel that he had been indicted;
in I.ogan for treason, and when
Harold W. Houston, for the defense,
interjected: "Everybody else is indicted
for treason in that county,
aren't they?" there was a storm of
objections, sustained by the court.
Dead Man Indicted.
"Didn't you hear that a dead man
was .indicted for treason in Logan
County?" was asked.
The witness admitted that he had |
heard of such an occurrence. The;
court ruled the question and answer

to go to work.
While the United Mine Workers
at Blair had "no lore" for the j
Logan deputies Luther Mostello,
testified the union did not "hate
them,'1 he said. However, in
cross-examination the witness said
the deputies were called "thugs"
by the miners, but they entertained
no hostility toward them.

number -of Democratic leaders of
Monongalia County left this morning
for Keyser to attend a meeting
of the Democratic Congressional

to indorse the candidacy of

failed to reach an agree

The fact that Captain Hatfield

from this district is one consideration
his followers will urge
upon the committee for an endorsement
of his candidacy. Mr. Hatfield
has not yet announced himself
as a candidate and will not
do so. his supporters say. unless
