"The injunction against the striking railroad shopmen requested by the at torney general and issued by Judge Wrilkerson constitutes a violation by high government officials of the consti tutional guarantees of American free dom and of specific, federal statutes without precedent in the history of the nation. "Soft words of interpretation spoken in " 'high official quarters after the issuance of the injunction cannot nuti gate the. plain language and intent of the document. Kor can they -wipe out the astounding admission by the ittor ney general -reported in the press the day the order was issued that lie would use the power of the government to maintain the open shop. This injunction, the message con tinned, "has not only violated freedom of speech, assemblage and the press. but has made the department of jus tics and the federal courts accessories to the crime of union smashing which a small group of railroad executives are seeking to perpetrate at the expense of the nation. Such conduct cannot nd must not go unrebuked by an out raged people." David William!, secretary of the committee, declared in making the tel egram public that it would have the sufport nf "over 100.000,RK) people I don t believe he department of ustiee will even attempt to enforce it, he continued. "As far as I and the members of this committee are concerned, we are going about our law ful business as free American citizens without interference.

The Barre city council, at its regular meeting last night, voted to buy the Gospel Village common, so-called, from the CongregationalS church, providing the cemetery commissioners will pay $1,000 of the purchase price, of $1,500, ih Cl'tl? tn rtaxr KnlaniM a nt v. . -1 ing a satisfactory agreement 'can be made w ith the abutters. This is a transaction that has been discussed many years and has been be- ore city meetings on several occasions. The discussion came to a head at this time through knowledge that the Con gregational church had put the prop erty on the maiket with the promise of warranty deed and through further knowledge that a private party had practically bought the three acres, only to hold up when there appeared some t likelihood that the city would buv. This private party, James Grearson, one of the abutters, was willing that the eity should be the owner under sat isfactory arrangements. The council acted last night in favor of thi pur chase after conference with the ceme tery commissioners and the abutters, it being the opinion of all that the city ought to have title to the property. The cemetery commissioners are m- eretrted through the fact that te Gos pel Village common abuts Elmwood cemetery and the commissioners have laid out a new burial tract, which ex tends over onto the common. A public thoroughfare runs through , the com mon, being known as a part of HUI street although is not an- accepted street. , Before the city council voted to pur- hase.
