Whether President Roosevelt will take any action as he has been urged to do in telegrams received from dif ferent labor organizations throughout the country, relative to Judge Wright's decision, has not been decided, It was said at the White House to-day.

These may be guilty of a broach of law, but a law that denies the use of a free press and full speech is a breach of the fundamental princi ple" ofVoir country, Such decisions only tend to create enmity and class hatred. We respectfully solicit your Influence to prevent the incarceration of these men."

Until Mitchell and Morrison seemed stunned by the sentence, nit hough Mr. Mitchell appeared to be tlie least concerned. Asked If he had anything to say why S' nteiiee should not be pronounced, President Oompers declared that lie had not conscientiously violated any law. There was much he would like to say. he said, tint he could not do it at that time, lie added, however, that this is a struggle of the working people of our country and It Is ti struggle of the working people for the right. It Is a struggle of the ages -a struggle of the men of the labor to throw off some of the burdens which have been heaped upon them; to abol ish some of the wrongs and to secure some of the rights' too long denied. .Mitchell and Morrison confined FINE For Christmas Gifts What more beautiful gift can be given than Fine Furs ?
