TORS IN TROUBLE
Ladies Who were Here for a Few
Days Have Trouble at Falls
A few days since it was chronicled
that two young ladies from Minne
apolis caliming to represent a mag
azine circulating firm of that city,
had been separated from their travel
ing companions, two young men, the
authorities giving the members of
the party the good advice that they
had better travel alone in the fu
ture. The separation was, however, not
relasant either to the girls or the
young men and they accordingly
pined for the moment when they
might once more take up the gipsey
trail to the south together. Yester
day afternoon the two girls, who
gave the names of Lillian and Gene
Anderson received the financial re
lief that secured them a railroad
ticket to Beatrice, or at least that is
the destination that they gave, but
from all reports they seem not to
have tarried there long as last night
a message was received here from
Falls City in regard to the party.'
The two young men. W. II. Em
ery and II. L. Barber, who have been
out hustling since the girls were
separated from them, had evidently
kept in close touch with the ladles
as all of the party gathered at the
city down the river last night, but
the naughty Fall City minions of the
law evidently did not look with
pleasure on the quartet and once
more deep and lasting gloom settled
down on the four young people.
The girls when here stated that
they had starteil from Minneapolis
with the intention of reaching Wich
ita, Kansas, where they were sup
posed to" meet a party of ten other
sales ladies and a manager, and trie
authorities here tried to secure a
promise from the girls to return
horn? but without success as both
ladies were of age and felt their ca
reer lay in disposing of the maga
zine subscriptions to the public.
ARE ENJOINED FROM
Shopmen and Affiliated Bodies are
Literally Restrained from the
Taking of Any Action.
Chicago, Sept. 1. Taking one of
the most drastic steps ever attempt
ed in a strike situation, the United
States government today obtained a
temporary federal order restraining
striking railroad shopmen, their of
ficers and affiliated bodies through
out the country from interfering In
any way whatever with the operation
of the nation's railroads.
The restraining order, hearing on
which was set for September 11, was
issued by Federal Judge James II.
Wilkerson upon the petition of Unit
ed States Attorney General Daugher
ty, who cr.rre here from Washington
to argue the action.
The order enjoins until the' hear
ing, all railway employes, attorneys,
servants, arents,' at ?oci:'.tes and all
persons acting In aid or in conjunc
tion with them from in any manner
interfering with, hindering or ob
structing railway companies, their
agents, servants or employes in the
operation of their respective rail
roads and systems of transportation
or the performance of their public
duties and obligations in the trans
portation of passengers and prop
erty, in interstate commerce and the
carriage of the mails, and from in
any manner interfering with em
ployes engaged in inspection, repair,
operation and use of trains, locomo
tives, cars and other equipment and
from attempting to prevent any per
son from freely entering into or con
tinuing In the employ of the com-
panies for the purpose of inspection
and repairing of locomotives and
cars or otherwise.
Survival of Government
The underlying principle involved
in the action, the attorney general
said in concluding his argument for
the order, is "the survival and the su
premacy of the government of the
Declaring that his request was not
aimed at union labor, the attorney
general said that the step was neces
sary to the preservation of the
unions themselves. At the same time
he asserted that the government ex
pected to use its authority to "pre
vent the labor unions from destroy
ing the open shop."
"When the unions claim the right
to dictate to the government and to
dominate the American people and
deprive the American people of the
necessities of life," he warned, "then
the government will destroy the
unions, for the government of the
United States Is supreme and must

presidents and secretaries were made
defendants in the attorney general's
"Strike Will Continue" .
Officials of the shopcrafts assert
ed that the order would have no ef
fect on continuance of the strike.
"The strike will continue until a
satisfactory settlement has been
reached," Secretary Scott said. W.
H. Johnston, president of the Inter
national Association of Machinists,
said that leaders will not abate their
efforts to make the strike effective,
despite any action taken by the
courts. B. M. Jewell, head of the
shopcrafts, issued no statement and
at his headquarters early tonight it
was reported that he was "in con
ference." While Mr. Daughcrty, Blackburn
Esterline, his assistant, and Charles
(Mine. United States district attor
ney, all refused to comment on the
possible effect of the injunction Mr.
Daughcrty said his future moves will
be governed entirely by the actions
of the persons enjoined.
In his presentation before the
court Mr. Daugherty reviewed the
efforts at mediation, particularly
Fresident Harding's attempts to end
the strike. He called attention to
the fact that the railroad labor
board is an agency of the govern
ment and that the president issued a
proclamation calling upon the strik
ers to return to work, obey the de
cisions of the board, and in any event
not to interfere with the transporta
tion service or with the men willing
to enter or continue in service.
