In United States District court
today took under advisement the
case of R. S. Holly, a striking
miner from the Carbon Fuel Co.,
sought to have held guilty of violating
an injunction by refusing to
leave a company house. Captain
S. B. Avis, arguing in behalf of the
company, claimed that Holly's occupation
of the house not only
hindered production of coal because
homes were not available
for workers who might be hired if
houses could be obtained, but also
was part of a conspiracy in restraint
of trade. Harold W. Houston,
counsel for tho United Mine
Workers, in his argument declared
the injunction was not the
proper remedy and that the possession
of the house should be
contested on the ground that the
company and Holly were landlord
and tenant rather than in the relation
of master and servant as
the company contended.
State Leader Frowns on Mfen

are current that some of
the miners in /Northern West Virginia
have grown arrogant since
the coal strike ended and are laying
down certain rules for their
guidance, which aparently doeB not
meet the approval of C. Frank
Keeney, Charleston, president of
district 17, United, Mine Workers |
of America, especially regulations
which are contrary to the arrangements
made between the operators .
and the miners.
Mr. Keeney in part today said 'It
is necessary that the miners co-operate
with the coal companies as
a contract cannot be regarded as
such unless both parties live up to
It. If the miner helps the company
be is helping himself. It necessary
to have mental .co operation. The
same arrangements are in force as
existed in 1920 when the agreement
was signed in Baltimore at which J
time -the miners' officials and the 1
operators decided upon them. No 1
one has the authority to change ]
these conditions."
