EDITORIAL The Court id' Appeal- of the district of Columbia has just handed down their decision in the contempt case against Oompers, Morrison and Mitchell, grow ing "lit of the Buck Btovc and range case. While the injunction was Affirm ed, its terms were greatly modified. The court held that labor publications could not be prohibited from referring to this case through their columns as long as the firm was not published in a "we don't patronize" li-t. A more sweeping injunction was never issued in a labor dispute than the orig inal injunction issued in this case. Bj term- the officials of tie' A. F. of 1... or any affiliated members were for bidden to refer to the fact that theßuck stove & Range Co were unfair eitherby written or spoken word. President Oompers has steadily maintained that the injunction was in direct violation ot the inherent right of free speech and free press and has Mood ready to go to; jail if necessary to uphold that right. The case will be carried up to the Su preme court of the I'nited States, where it i- believed by the officials of the Fed eration that the jail sentences Imposed by lodge Wright will be annulled. Cit if- in the southern part of the | -tato are puzzled to know how to care' for the army of men that have been j brought there exporting to obtain rail-! road construction work. Flma i- com ! plaining bitterly of being the dumping ground for these unemployed men, who 1 for the most part aio penniless, Sev eral effort- have been made at previous; sessions of the legislature to pa-s a bill prohibiting false advertisements for la bor with severe penalties, attached with out success. It seems to be a common custom among certain employing classes to take advantage of a scarcity of work to concentrate an army of unemployed, first at one point and then another. Wages as a consequence are beaten down to a -tarvation point. This process has been carried on in Alaska for several years and still draw- thousands ot men to the far north in a hopeless que-t for work. The titanic -truggle in which the I'n ited Hatters is engaged i- being watched with anxiety and sympathy by all union I pie. Probably no organization was 'ever called on to fight against greater odds. li Is a life and death struggle 'with them.

When it oc curs il" it does--that the strong arm nf the law reaches out to protect the rights of the humblest of our citizens a- well as those of well. Standard Oil then and then only can we give to ii the respect and reverence which il call- for. 'The Morning Tribune, all unconscious ly perhaps, in an editorial printed in thi- morning's issue drove home a IcSSOII lo unorganized workingmen in a few wo.d-. In commenting on the recently formed business men-' association and their relation to the grocer-' associa tion and the farmers', they said: "Noth ing can bo accomplished without organ iz.atioti. That is why the business men have organized, But the organized bus! ness men cannot do much for the unor ganized ranchers. They could do much if the ranchers were organized also." Change the words "business men" and "rancher-" to "laboring men" and these few sentences would tell the whole story of the organized labor movement. Senator Depew, of Now York, is a .bitter opponent of the Direct Primary system. In a public -pooch the other 'day he is credited with the following outburst: "Under the present system j which has been in vogue for over a hun dred years, wo have never had a bad , President we have had many great ones; wo have never had a bail gover nor in the state of Now York we have had many great ones."
