Strike of Rail Employe Will
Bring About Ilradon
Collision With Gov
Plans Are Already Made
Cincinnati, O., June 18 (Hy
A. P.) Formal notice was served
tonight on the railroad labor board
by the chiefs of U railroad unions
of their intention to go through with
strike in event one is authorized
by the IZ.'S.IXiO workers whose
wages are to be reduced on July 1
under order of the board.
Coupled apparently with the ac
tion of the rail union leaders was a
Ktatement that the "railroad worker
have no alternative except to tight,"
made by John L. Lewis, leader of
the striking coal miners, who will
meet with the rail union leaders
Tuesday to consider joint strike ac
tion, lie aUo pledged the miner's
aid to the rail men. but declined to
state definitely what aid might re
sult front joint action.

. Washington, June 18. If the rail
road unions should carry out their
threat to strike in protest against the
reduction of wages decreed by the
railway labor board, they will find
themselves involved in a head-on
collision with the federal govern
ment. President Harding, it was learned
today, intends to back up the labor
board to the full extent of his vast
power in the event the unions resort
to force to defeat the processes for
the adjustment of wages provided by
the Cumrnins-Esch act.
This law conferred upon the board ,
no means of enforcing its decisions.
Provisions to clothe the boards and
the courts with such authority were
defeated through the efforts of or
ganized labor. Defenders of the
legislation have held that the force
of public opinion would be sufficient
to compel respect for the decisions of
the board eventually by rendering
abortive any strike in defiance
Will Maintain Service.
This theory will be given a tryout
in the event of a strike. The presi
dent,' however, is not disposed to be
content with a mere trial of strength
between the unions and the public.
"He deems it a fundamental responsi
bility of srovernment to maintain
transportation and is determined to
employ all lawful resources to ac
complish that end.
When the country faced the threats
of a railroad strike last year, Secre
tary of Commerce Hoover was form
ing an organization to cary out a
vast scheme of iansportation of the
necessities of life by auto trucks and
Attorney General Daughcrty was on
the point of instituting legal pro
ceedings against the authors of the
strike order. These plans will be
icvived if the unions make good
their present threats to walk out.
One Million Vote on Strike.
More than 1,000,000 employes com
prise the membership of the 11 un
ions now taking a strike vote.
The four train service brotherhoods
of engineers, ' firemen, conductors
and train men, with a membership
of 400,000, are not affected by the sit
uation. The total of tl.c last three cuts or
dered hv the labor board is $135,000,
1)00. Added to the cut of July 1,
I9t, it makes a total of $485,000.
00 in the last year.
Government figures are not avail
able to show the reduction in wages
. of other classes of industry. From
; incomplete returns, however, but
covering a wide range of industry, it
is evident that wage reductions have
been much greater than in the rail
road industry, even running to as
much as 50 per cent from the war
time levels, in some instances. It is
estimated roughly however, that the
average reduction in other lines has
been around Za per cent. .
Holds Union Suable.
It is possible that the supreme
court decision in the Coronado Coal
case holding unions suable for dam
ages and denning strikes amendable
to provisions of the Sherman anti
trust act, will have a bearing upon
, such legal proceedings as might be
instituted against the railroads
unions in the event . of a strike.
Henry S. Drinker, jr., of Philadel
phia, counsel for the Coronado Coal
- company, is of the opinion that or
ganized labor will benefit by the de-
"Now that labor unions are legal
ly liable for -damages which they
cause," says Mr. Drinker, "it would
seem that the courts would be much
less likely to grant injunctions, since
after the commission of the act there
is a ready and adequate remedy.
- Change Gomper's Stand.
"A considerable of Mr. Gomper's
public utterances in recent years has
been devoted to berating the courts
for what he contends is their unfair
attitude toward labor, : his most
prevalent charge being relative to
-4he issuance of injunctions which he
contends would not have been is
sued if the defendants had been capi
talists. "While contending that labor
unions were totally immune from
suits for damages and their funds
exempt from liability for injuries
, caused by their members,' Mr. Gom-
pers, at the same time ,has main
. ' .1 . , . i i
laincu inai mere snouia oe appucu

"Manifestly under the law, prior
to the courts decision in the Coro
nada Coal company case, this posi
tion was - botb. illogical and unfair.
One cannot both have his cake and
eat it. Now; however, the situa
tion is wholy changed."

Charles Van Deusen, chief of de

1. Under the habitual criminal act,

whether Brown could be prosecuted

girls at his Benson shack.
Chain Charge Slender.
"Brown probably would be able to
show that he dug 'the Boyd grave' to
get a tub of loot that he carried
away in his motor car," the chief
said, "and a controversy probably
would develop as to how the girls
happened to be there."
One of the girls, Katherine Mc
Manaman, is now in police custody.
She was arrested Saturday night and
officials say she was held for the
health department. Complaint ' also
has been made to the police by one
of her friends, that she borrowed a
hat and did not return it.
If Brown is prosecuted as a "man
acle man." according to the police,
conduct of everybody concerned in
the chaining is certain to be closely
scrutinized for a long period prior
to the episode.
But in the opinion of Chief Van
Deusen the manacle man hasn't a
chance to go free. .
