File Petition in Famous
Coronarlo Suit Against
Washington, Aug. Jt.-ffiy A. P.)
1'etition for rehearing of the fam
ous Coronarlo coat case, in which
the United Slates supreme court re
cently laid down a far-reaihing con
struction of the rights of organized
labor, although not incorporated, was
filer) with the court by Jyhn W, Da
vis, as counsel for the coal com
panies involved. N'o action will be
taken on the petition until the court
reconvenes in October,
The original proceeding was a civil
suit insituted by the Coronarlo and
other coal companies against theUnit-
ed States Mine Workers of Amerirs
district 21, and local unions ol that
organization and individual members
for treble damages caused by de
struction of property during the
strike of 1916. 1 he supreme court
in a decision rendered June 5. 19J2
sustained contentions of the coal
companies that the mine workers'
union and other unincorporated la
bor organizations were suable, but
set aside the award of damages made
by the lower federal courts.
"Essential mistakes and miscon
ceptions of the facts by the supreme
court were stated as grounds for
a rehearing, the petition asserting
that when the principles of law an
nounced by the court are applied to
the facts actually appearing in the
record, the judgment aeainst dis
trict 21, as rendered by the lower
courts, must be affirmed and prob
acy also the judgment against the
United Mine Workers of America
The supreme court ct aside the
award of damages on the ground that
the national union of the United
Mine Workers had not been shown
to have authorized or participated in
the strike and because the evidence
did not warrant the jury in finding
that the olticials ol district No. 21
were actuated by an intent to restrain
or monopolize interstate commerce
The jury which heard the evidence,
the petition for rehearing pointed out,
had rendered a verdict against the
United Mine Workers and other de
fendants, and the judge who heard
the evidence and saw the witnesses
stated that the evidence established
"overwhelmingly" that "district 21
had been actuated, primarily and
solely" by an intent to restrain inter
The "cardinal" issue in the ca?e is
stated to be that of intent, and "to
demand that it (intent) shall be
shown by open declarations of those
concerned," the petition asserted, "is
to require what can rarely be sup
plied in any proceeding, least of all
in one involving a conspiracy.
Voluminous evidence is contained
in the record of the case, the petition
declared, "showing that over a long
series of vcars, as a result of practi
cal experience with the menace of
open shop competition, there had
been firmly implanted through the
organization (United Mine Workers),
including all the officers and mem
bers of district 21, the basic idea
that, by whatever means, the ship
ment of open shop coal should be
prevented," and it pointed out as
significant "that each of the occa
sions when the property was attacked
coincided with actual preparation by
the cevmpanics for the immediate
shipment of coal."
