mended that public bodies every

expected that most of the states will

It was most significant that the un

more public work to give employment.

WATSON SPRINGS SENSATION.
Senator Watson of Georgia has
created a sensation by charging on
the floor of the senate that American
soldiers were hung in France without
When immediate proof was de
manded by Senator Wadsworth of the
Military Affairs committee, Watson re
fused on the ground that the military
affairs committee was biased and that
it would be dangerous to his witnesses
"I mean every i word I have said,"
declared Watson, "and I did not over
paint the picture. I have a photo
graph of the gallows upon which
white soldiers were hanged, and I can
produce witnesses who saw it if it is
safe for them to appear.
1 "A picture of white men hanged
like dogs. I can produce men, if it
were safe, who saw men shot without
trial. I cannot compel men to come
to this underlain danger
Senator Watson also declared that
there was a vast amount of inefficiency
whereby food was piled up in some
places to waste and in other places
our men suffered from starvation and
were even left to die on the road.
Senator Lenroot rushed to the aid of
Wadsworth in styling the charges as
monstrous and utterly aside from the
truth. But another 'committee has
been appointed to investigate.

WASHINGTON, D. CFederal
Judge A. B. Anderson of Indianapolis
has issued another and more astound
ing injunction against the United
Mine Workers of America.
In 1919 an injunction issued by him
made the issue of strike orders by the
union chiefs a criminal offense. Pres
ident Lewis and other leaders have
had a hard road since that time be
cause they did not risk going to jail
to defend the miners' liberties as they
Now Anderson forbids efforts to
unionize the miners of. West Virginia
on the ground that such organizing
would create a monopoly In the soft
coal industry and as such be Illegal
under the Sherman anti-trust act and
he forbids further use of the check
off system of dues collecting. Under
this plan the accountant for the com
pany gets a permit from the union
members to keep his dues out of his
pay each week and forwards them to
the union headquarters. This plan
saves the heavy expense of individu
al dues collecting.
Union headquarters have wired lo
cal leaders as follows:
"Any abrogation or setting aside of
any part or section of this agreement
(between employers and employees),
including the section providing for
the checking off of dues and assess
ments cannot be regarded as other
than a violation of the agreement and
should be treated accordingly by the
district officers and local unions."
The servile Anderson's misinterpre
tation of the law and the general sit
uation would indicate that the coal
trust is anxious to goad miners into a
strike as a good excuse for coal scar
city and higher prices.
The well known conservatism of the
mine union leaders might be taken as
reason for thinking a strike would not
occur, but they have compromised so
much to avoid strikes in the last 3
years that they nay feel they cannot
retain their power without a bold
stand on the present issue.
That part of the injunction forbid
ding organization is of vital impor
tance to all organizations of common
people in the United States because,
if it stands, no organization can be in
dependent of big business dictation
without being declared an .illegal

8ALES TAX DEFEATED.
The senate has gone on record
against the sales tax in a vote of 43
to 25 on a measure proposed by Sen
ator Smoot levying 1 per cent on
sales. But it is too early to be con
fident that a measure backed so thor
oughly by big business is beaten.
Perhaps this was only a manouver to
allow republican senators in territory
organized by the Nonpartisan league
to get on record. Even Senator Nel
son of Minnesota, Sterling of South
Dakota and Lenroot of Wisconsin vot
ed with the democrats.
Now that the "record" for the pub
lic has been made a slightly differ
ent bill called a merchants' tax or

Smoot immediately proposed anoth
er measure providing a 1 per cent
tax on gross sales in excess of $6,000

senate has not yet taken action.

The administration held that a sol-,

within the ranks of the Legion be

rank and file. Three years ago Le
