Powers Assumed by the Courts Should Be Speedily Cheeked §9 the End That They Shall Not Become Our Absolute Rulers. ST. LOUIS, Sept. 1.—The delegates to the convention of labor leaders were slow in assembling, and it was nearly an hour after the time set for the meet ing before the body was called to order. delay was due to the committee on i. solutions, which sent word that it was not ready to report. It was 10 o'clock when the committee on resolutions filed into the hall, and the delegates were called to order to hear its report. Mr. Berger, in presenting the resolu tions, 6pokc of the great task the com mittee had before it. He said the report about to be submitted was the best the committee could do under the circum stances whether it would suit was the main question. The platform as pre sented,reads as follows: The Resolutions. The fear of the more watchful fathers of the rcpubir has been justified. The judiciary has become supreme. We wit noes a political phenomenon, absolutely new in the history of the world a repub lic prostrate nt the feet of the judges ap pointed to administer its laws. They acknowledge 110 superior on earth, and their despotic deeds recall Milton's warn ing to his countrymen •'Who bids a man rule over him above law, Xtiy bid as well a savage beast." Vnder the cunning form of injunctions courts have assumed to enact criminal laws, and after thus drawing to them selves the power of legislation, have re pealed the bill of rights and for violations of these court-made laws, have denied the Accused the right of trial by jury. Right of Assembly Denied. The exercise of the commonest rights of freemen—the right of assembly, the right of free speech, the right of traveling the public highways, have by legislation un der the form of injunctions been made a crime, and armed forces disperse as mobs people daring in company to exercise these rights. At its last term, the su preme court of the United States decided that the loth amendment, forbidding in voluntary servitude is "not violated by arresting a se im in, imprisoning him un til his vessel is ready to leave port, and then forcibly putting him on board to serve out the term of his contract," a de cision under which the old fugitive slave laws may yet be revived and striking laborers lie seized and returned to the Service of their masters. Judges Will Soon be Sole Governor*. Having drawn to themselves ull the powers of the federal government, until congress and presidents may act only by judicial permission, the federal judges hayo begun the subjugation of sovereign states, so that unless a chix-k is soon put upon the progress of ursurimtion, In a short time 110 government, but the abso lute despotism will exist anywhere over any portion of American soil. The pend ing strike of coal miners, starved to feeble ness by their scant wages, by arduous und dangerous toil, the pending strike for the right to be fed enough to make labor pos sible, has been prolific of judicial usurpa tion, showing the willingness of judicial despots to resort to the most ehameless defiance of deeency, as well as of law and humanity, in order to enable heartless avarice to drive its hungry serfs back to the niines to faint und die at their drudgery, and there remains today not one guaranteed right of American citi zens, the exercise of which an injunction has not somewhere tuude a crime started by these subversions of constitutional liberty. We have met to counsel together and have come to the following conclu sions, that Whereas, the present strike of the coal miners has again demonstrated the fact that our so-called liberty is not freedom, but is a stupendous sham, under which millions are degenerating, while hun dreds of thousands of men, women and children are starving In hovels and on the public highway Whereas, this condition has become per manent for a large and ever increasing number of our population, as long as we permit a comparatively small class of legalised exploiters to monopolise the means of distribution for their private benefit—a fact again obvious in the case of miners Whereas, appeals to congress and to the courts for relief are fruitloss, since the legislative, as well as the executive and judicial powers are under the control of the capitalistic class, so that it has come to pass in this "free country" that while cattle and swine have a right to the pub lic highways. Americans, so-culled free men, have not Whereas, our capitalistic class, us is again shown in the present strike, is armed, and has not only policemen, mar shals, sheriffs and deputies, but ulsou regular army and militia, in order to en force government by injunction, sup pressing lawful assemblage, free speech ®nd the right to the public highway, while on the other hand, the laboring men of the country are unarmed and defense less, contrary to the words and spirit of the constitution of the United States, therefore, be it Make Friday a "Good Friday." Resolved. 1. That we hereby set apart Friday, the Jird day of September, 1SU7, as a "good Frlduy" for the cause of suffer ing labor In Ameaica, and contribute the earnings of that day to the support of our struggling brothers, the miners, and ap peal to every union man and every friend of labor throughout the country to do likewise. Resolved, 2. If the strike of the miners Is not settled by the 2oth day of Septem ber, 1M7, and announcement made to that effect, by the president of the United Mine Workers, that a general convention be held in Chicago, on Monday, September H7, by the representatives of all unions, sections, branches, lodges and kindred or ganizations of laboring men und fricuds of their cause, for the purpose of consider ing further measures in the interests of the striking miners and labor in general. Ballot tlie Safest Remedy. Resolved, 8. That we consider the use tf.T the ballot as the best and safest means for the amelioration of the hardships un der which the laboring classes suffer. Resolved, 4. That the public ownership Of railroads and telegraphs is one of the most necessary reforms for our body pol itic. Resolved, 5. That we most emphatic ally protest uguinst government by in junction, which plays havoc with even such political liberty as workingmen have saved from the steady encroachment of capitalism, and be it finally Kesri vod, 6. That no nation in which the people are totally disarmed can long remain a free nation, and therefore, we urge upon all liberty-loving citizens to remember und obey article two of the Constitution of the United States, which reads os follows: "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not lie infringed." The discussion on the resolutions is animated, being still in progress as this dispatch is sent. SHOT IN THE BACK. Havana Police Murder Two Men Whom Weyler Suspected.

Both were curried to the city jail, and kept incommunicado un til nearly midnight. Inspector of Police Cuevas, with four policemen then took the prisoners from their cells, marched them to Cerro and deliberately shot each of them in the back. The presence of a dead cart in the immediate vicinity showed that the murder had begji planned. FOR MOVING THE CROPS. Big Demand for Currency From the South and West.

The storms and winds of trouble and sickness assail the mariner on lite's seas. He must be clear-headed and stro!ig-l»od ied if he would successfully combat them. The man who works with his hands, and the man who works with his brains, must have a healthful, wholesome body, or he will fail. A blacksmith can't do good work if he is weak and sick from impure blood, poor digestion and weak lungs. The lawyer cannot strongly plead his client's cause if the brain is full of impur ities and his nerves are racked by sleep lessness and unrest. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a money maker because it puts body and brain in perfect trim for work. It makes stomach, liver, bowels and kidneys do their proper work.
