SETS THEM FREE
Judge Kavanagh, of Chicago,
Refuses to Punish Strikers
Who Had Been Enjoined.
PKOSEOUTING LAWYER IS REBUKED
For Charging More Than He Could
Prove Threats That Are
Chicago, Aug. 0 Scoring Attorney
Allen for making charges which his
witnesses failed to prove Judge Kav
anagh discharged four of the Illinois
Malleable Iron company's strikers on
the charge that they had made threats
of violence against Jan Cubala and
Peter Lehr, l'JKi Seeley avenue. On
Attorney Allen's protest, however.
Judge Kavanagh remained to hear
other charges of stone-throwing and
other alleged violence against the men.
The men discharged on the charges
heard during the session of the court
were William Skoner, Michael Smith,
August Darchefski and Max Llecz.
Testimony of the Witnesses.
Witnesses had testified that Skoner
end his companions had told Cubala
that he would have to pick up stones
in the street and that he would be
put out of the union and that one wit
ness said that bodily harm was threat
ened against I'eter Iehr. This testi
mony, however. Judge Kavanagh de
clared was not corroborated.
"Well, what do you think you have
shown ;" was the court's onery. when,
Attorney Allen anuounced that he was
"We have shown that the accused
men made threats of violence against
the witnesses, that they threatened to
Court and Counsel Disagree.
"Oh. no." interrupted the court,
"there were no such assertions." At
torney Allen protested that there were.
"Well, state specifically, what did
Skoner say or do that was in viola
tion of this injunction?" Attorney Al
len said that he couldn't remember
"The worst thing that has been said,
according to testimony, was told by
only one of the witnesses, declared
the court. "Mrs. Lehr said that Skoner
said if her husband did not quit work
it would be bad for him."
Jl'DGE ACCUSES THE LAWYER
Tells lllm lie lias Made Charges That tie
lias Failed to I'rot..
"Why the testimony was replete with
threats," said Attorney Allen aghast.
"The strikers told them they would
have to pick up stones in the street."
"Well, what does that mean?"
"They said they would be put out of
"That was one of the things they
had a right to say. To say that one of
the men would be put out of the union
because he persisted in working for the
Illinois Malleable Iron company was no
violation of the injunction I repeat
that it was one of the tnings that he
had a right to say.
"He had also a right to say that Cu
bala would probably at some time be
unable to get work and perhaps have
to pick stones from the street if he did
not stand with the union. I said about
ten days ago, and all the pajK-rs gave
great publicity to my remarks, that I
would not enjoin peaceful picketing
and patrolling. Thus far I have heard
no evidence whatever of violence or of
violation of the Injunction Issued by
Allen again attempted to stem the
tide of the court's rebuff. "Mr. Allen,
you have made charges that you have
failed to bac k up by anj- proof. Now so
much for that. This sort of thing keeps
excitement constantly stirred up and
produces friction that does not natur
ally exist. More than a week has
elapsed since 1 granted you a contin
uance and you have not In that time
produced a single affidavit tending to
show that disorder and violence exist
about the plant of the Illinois Malle
able Iron company. I have no sympa
thy with such proceedings and the men
cited are discharged."
"But your honor," said Attorney Al
len still persisting, "I have witnesses
here who will testify that these men
liave been seen throwing stones and in
dulging in other exhibitions of vio
lence alKmt the company's plant."
Judge Kavanagh said that he would
hear these last charges later on, but
that the men were discharged on the
accusation based on the alleged state
ments as to Cuba la's picking up stones
from the street. The case was then

to try to arrauge for the reception of
