COURT GIVES JAIL SENTENCE TO 25 STRIKERS Found Guilty In Denver Of Violating Court Re straining Order Denver, Colo., Jan. 4.—Twenty-five members of the Amalgamated Butch ers anrl Meat Workers union includ ing ono woman, late this evening: were sentenced by District Judge C. J. Mor ley to terms in the county Jail ranging from one day to two months for con tempt of court. Those sentenced were found guilty of violating: an order of the court issued on December 6 order ing them to return to work pending the outcome of a wage dispute adjudica tion then pending before the state in dustrial commission. T. A. McCreash, district president of the organization, received the heaviest sentence—6o days in Jail. Dan Mullen, local president Secretary Gilbert Clary, local secretary and Wm. H. Hayes treasurer received sentences of 30 days each. Miss Rose Travison and thirteen others received suspended sentences of one day each in the county jail. Counsel for the union men interposed a motion for a stay of execution which was denied. Ho then gave notice that he would take the case to the supreme court. Judge Morley preceded the sentence of each group with admonition here after to observe all court orders and the laws of the land reminding that laws were designed to be observed by all classes as well as to protect all classes. "Why, eventually, your homes, your own families, would not ho safe if we were to permit open violations of the lavs such as in this instance,” de clared the court. Judge Morley criticised the officers of the local union for not counselling the men. declaring that while some may have been In ignorance of the laws it was the bounden duty of their organization officials to fully acquaint them with their provisions. Ho said that it was the duty of the’ heads of the union to hold matters, in status quo pending a settlement by„ the in dustrial commission of the questions involved. The court directing hie re marks to Preeident McCreath Mid: * A Mr. McCreash pleads that he had no authority to order the men bark to work after tho court's order be cause he had not called the ntrlke In tho first instance. This is no excuse. It was his duty to recognize the au thority of the commission and the mandate of the court which were mere ly trying to afford tlm protection al lowed by the laws of this government. Anarchism would prevail in a short time if wp were to evade and violate the laws. The basis of governmental protection Is the law." BURGLARS ARE BUSY ON THE NORTH SIDE Homo of 0.
