Labor injunctions will be one of the issues during; the
ccming campaign and it behooves all workers to "book
v up" on this usurpation of courts.
Here are a few points that will "floor" any defender
of labor injunctions:
From the foundation of our government, injunctions
have been recognized for the protection of property. Sec
tion 917 of the United States Revised Statutes empowers
the supreme court to prescribe rules for its application.
Kule 55, promulgated in 1866, provides that special injunc
tions shall be grantable only upon due notice to the other
Labor injunctions are capitalistic applications of jus
tice, masking under a hypocritical love for courts.
The labor injunction was invented by Alex Smith, at
torney for the Ann Arbor railway in the strike of 1894.
It was applied by Federal Judge Taft, who committed
Frank Phelan to jail for six months, and since then near
ly every court has granted these writs on demand.
Labor injunctions are not authorized or recognized by
Labor injunctions deny workers a trial by jury a
right accorded the meanest criminal.
Labor injunctions outlaw acts committed at strike
times but legal at all other times.
Labor injunctions empower the court to act as law
maker, judge and executioner.
Labor injunctions class workers as property
Labor injunctions make no distinction between proper
ty rights and personal rights.
Labor injunctions rest on the theory that when an ac
' tion by workers injures property, fundamental personal
rights can be enjoined.
Labor injunctions protect dollars at the cost of a free
press and free speech.
Labor injunctions disregard the wrongs of workers in
a desire to protect gold.
Labor injunctions are issued on the sole affidavits of
men who place spies in unions.
Labor injunctions class the patronage of workers and
sympathizers as a property right that cannot be jeopar-'
dized by a statement of facts.
Labor injunctions still the voice of protest against
the grinding policy of unfair employers.
Labor injunctions differ from injunctions for the pro
tection of impersonal rights.
Labor injunctions guess a violation of the criminal
code will be committed.
Labor injunctions are strike-time "laws."
Labor injunctions are not entitled to the respect of a
Labor injunctions are judge-made laws, thanks to Wil
liam Howard Taft. Toledo Union Leader.

100 the label
The Wageworker is. took advantage
of the oportunity to reach the boys
who earn the good money.
Right here and now The Wage
worker wants to extend its thanks to
the printers and pressmen in the em
ploy of the Western Newspaper Union.
"Doc" " Righter and his bunch of
"swifts are also included in the above
statement. No better bunch of me
chanics is engaged in the printing
trades anywhere in this country. They
took as great an interest in getting the
paper out on time, and in making it
a typographical beauty, as the editor
himself. To them The Wageworker
extends its hearty thanks and its : in
cere appreciation. To the advertisers
who responded with such libertlity and
enterprise more and equally hearty
thanks are tendered. And here's hop
ing that all good union people will do
the right thing patronize the mer
chants who think enough of the work
ers" trade to ask for it through the
columns of a paper that is doing its
best weak as that best may be to
champion the cause of the tollers.
TAILORS BOUND OVER.
Accused of Assault But Will Not Be
Tried Until Later.
Otto Lindstroni, Chris Christianson
and X. H. Peterson, union tailors who
were charged with having assaulted
an imported "scab" tailor employed by
Heffley, were arraigned before Justice
Stevens last week. The assault case
was dismissed and the peace warrant
The story of the assault is so farrial
that it is doubtful if the case ever
comes to trial. Scared half to death
for fear they would be attacked, the
"scabs" ran when the union pickets
approached and tried to engage them
in conversation with a view to urging
them to be decent. That's all there is
to that story of "assault." The
locked-out tailors are quietly keeping
tab as the days go by and some of the
profits expected to accrue by reason of
charging merchant tailoring prices for
inferior "scab" work are not material
izing to any appreciable extent
JUST A BIT PROUD.
Wageworker "Swelled Up" over Com
pliments for Big Edition.
So many compliments have been
showered on the Wageworker be
cause of its large and handsome La
bor Day edition last week that it feels
as if it has a right to feel proud. ; It
was a mighty fine paper we'll admit
it without argument. And it is all due
to the fact that the enterprising adver
tisers knowing what a good medium
Gompers needs no defense, he is the
greatest and cleanest leader organized
labor ever had. LTnpurchasable and
irreproachable he stands for the
rights of organized labor, and the great
majority of its members will follow his
leadership in preference to Van
Cleave's or any other union smasher.
