Lord's Resolution is Rejected by tho House. Lansing, Mich., Jan. 27. Itep. Lord's resolution for Gov. Osborn to call a ftato tax conference of mayors, chair men of hoards of supervisors, repre sentatives of business associations and professional experts to discuss the pencral subject of revising the tax laws has been rejected by the house, 5S to 38. The resolution as introduced Tues day contained a clause reading: "It la generally conceded there exists gross Inequality and under valuation in assessment of general property, resulting In an excessive and unjust rate of taxation." No sooner was the resolution v taken VV than the point was made that this clause would delight railroad com ra llies, which aro loudly proclaiming ex actly what tho clause expressed. If t'cloptcd by the legislature the rail roads in lawsuits could uso the clause as an admission by the legislature of J their allegations that their properties j nre assessed relatively higher than i farm and other kind of properties. On motion of Rep. Lord hlr.-felf, this1 clause was stricken out. i Then Reps. Ashley, Per;;, Wood worth and Flowers started criticizing! the resolution. On general principles they believed It would load down the taxation question with a mass of wordy papers and debates that few would read. With the legislature, tho tax commission and railroad commis sion working on the subject, and the legislative reference library containing tax -literature a?Jd statistics of every elite at their disposal, they don't need to wait for a conference to tell them what to do, they contended. Resides, they declared the resolution wns vague nnd Indefinite as to how long tho legis lature would have to wait until the commission's talks were available. Itep. Lord said he thought the con ference could meet In March and do M Us talking In a few days. Ho told bow New York has recently had such a eonference and how several neigh boring states are preparing for one. Tho declslvo vote against the resolu tion means it Is dead beyond resurrec tion.

HOUGHTON COUNTY, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY BOYCOTT CASE HAS DRAMATIC NG TODAY Supreme Court Decides BucksStove & Range Case is Moot Ques tion and Will Not Hear It BIG LABOR LEADERS INVOLVED Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison Who Were Under Sentence For Con tempt of Court May Es cape Imprisonment. - Washington, I). C, Jan. 2?. The "Roycott" caso of the Ruck Stove & Rango company of St. Louis against the American Federation of Labor to day came to u dramatic close In the supremo court, which decided it was a moot question and one that it would not hear. Tho contending forces started their fight to determine the legality of the "boycott." That was In the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. Rut today when the contest was to be re newed beforo the Supreme Court of the United States, the main Issue had been crowded out of the limelight by an in cidental one. The burning Issue wus whether the principal officials of the American Federation of Labor were to go to Jail on charges of contempt of court. Recause they failed to obey the In junction Issued by the District Su preme Court In the original case, Sam uel Gompers, president of the Federa tion was under sentence to serve twelve months In Jail; John Mitchell, vice president of the Federation,, to serve nine months and Frank Morrison, its secretary to serve six months. Fighting for tho American (Federa tion of Labor and Its officials were Al ton R. Parker, former democratic pres idential candidate; Jackson H. Ral ston, Frederick U Slddons, William E. Richardson and John T. Walker. Op posed to them as the representatives of the Ruck's Stove and Range Com pany were Daniel Davenport and J. J. Darlington. Boycott Was First Charge. The Ruck's Stove and Range Com pany was selling stoves and ranges throughout the 'United States at the time the suit began. It was doing a business of $1,230,0(10 a year. It com plained that the American Federation of Labor and Its members were con spiring to ruin its business by means of a boycott. The court was asked to grant an injunction against a continu ation of the efforts and particularly to restrain the American Federation of Labor from printing in Its official organ, the American Federatlonlst, the name of the company as being on the "We-don't-patronlze-list." The oppo sition of the Federation was alleged to bo due to a strike of metal polishers In the shops of the company. Tho Supreme Court of the District of Columbll issued the Injunction. The Court of Appeals of the District modi fled the decree In several ways, the principal modification being based on the holding that the injunction against tho publication of the company's name on tho "We-don't-patronlze-llst" should be effective only when the pub lication was "In furtherance of such a boycott." In so doing, It Is contended that the lower court made a distinction between a boycott of the company by the members of the organized labor and a boycott of tho company by tho members ngalnst tho company's cus tomers who refused to stop dealing with tho company. It was urged that only tho second kind of boycott was held illegal. Both Sides Appealed. Roth sides appealed from this decis ion. The manufacturing company be lieved that It did not go far enough, and the defendants took the position that It went too far. The attorneys for tho American Federation of Iabor contended each one of the defendants had a right to refuse to patronize those who dealt with the stove -and range company and therefore they could combine In re fusing. It was said that what was law ful for one was lawful when done In combination. This position was attack ed as being opposed to the liberty to dispose of one's goods and as being contrary to the decisions of all the states of the union. The lower court was divided on the point. For the American Federation of La bor, It was argued that to prohibit the publication of the "We-don't patron-Ize-llst" would be an Interference with the constitutional rights and the free dom of the press. On the other hand II was contended that even r constitu tional right may be so used os to be made a part of a conspiracy prohibit ed by law. Many Sided Situation. Still further, It was figured that busi ness was not property, nor a property right, but rather a mere abstraction Incapable of Judicial protection. This proposition was Also opposed. Refore the Injunction of the original court had been passed on by the high er court, the Ruck's Stove and Range Company compJaii.cJ that President Gompers, Vice President Mitchell und Secretary Morrison had violated . Us provisions by commenting publicly on tho effect of tho Injunction. They were brought into court and held to be in contempt. Then It was argued In their behalf that the lower court had not issued a valid Injunction and that they could not be punished therefore, for disobeying it. That It was not u prop er Injunction Is shown, it was said, by the fact that tho higher court modi fied it. WILL WED BRIDE'S CHUM.,; Mining Engineer to Msrry Companion of Girl He Formerly Courted.

He was greatly ad dicted to both nnd was himself a noted steeplechase rider. On the day of his marriage he foreswore tho turf for ever. Successful in Politics.

So marked was the girl's cleverness ami beauty, however, that after tho father went to South America to seek a fortune anew and her daring mother decided to open a dressmaking establishment in Lon don, the Duchess of Redford, a first cousin of Mrs. Guerney, came forward with the offer of a home and an educa tion for pretty little Rachel. So. amid the most lavish wealth, the girl grew up. The Duchess proved a noble friend, and the future Countess of Dudley was brought out In London society with great splendor. King George Was Sponsor.
