Members of Legislature Will Find
Labor Organizations Ileglnnlng to Com
prehend Some Truths Long Taught
by The Independent
At the meeting of the miners na
tional organization last week, John
Mitchell spoke of government by in
junction as follows:
"Government by injunction is one
of the most insidious, harrassing and
dangerous methods resorted to by the
enemies of the worldngmen to destroy
labor organizations and to circumvent
the constitutional right of trial by
jury, ine wnoie system or govern
ment by injunction grows from the
distrust of the ultra-capitalists for
"The reasons given for the issuing
of injunctions are always misleading
and generally false. So far as these
injunctions are issued in labor cases,
they are never issued excepting in
such cases as call for "the exercise of
the criminal law.
Government by injunction is not
only hostile to organized labor, but
it is hostile to constitutional liberty,
If the American people do not check
this arbitrary power it will result in
the annihilation of labor unions and
then of all other forms of organiza
tions disliked by capitalists."
Vice President T. L. Lewis in his
annual report reviewed his year's work
in settling disputes and troubles and
discussed injunctions at length. In
closing his discussion, he said:
"When we remember that we have
nearly 500,000 voters directly engaged
in mining in the United States and
that they are distributed through the
country in such proportions that we
may determine the composition of con
gress, we ask in all sincerity, whose
fault it is if we do not secure remedial
legislation. It is our own. Let us
burn that into the minds and con
sciences of every mine worker in this
country then we will get our rights.
"If we expect to secure relief, every
laboring man must act. Not by de
nouncing the courts, or those who is
sue injunctions, but to demand of our
representatives in congress to know
where they stand with reference to
the growing evil of -government by
i.et the congress of the United
States by law classify cases that are
subjects for the jurisdiction of the
federal courts when issuing injunc
tions affecting the rights of members
of labor organizations when engaged
in a strike.
"Have a law enacted that federal
judges can issue injunctions in labor
disputes only on the application or
approval of two or more elective
judges. Fix the time within a rea
sonable limit when the defendant
shall answer to an injunction issued
against him. Compel the applican'
for an injunction affecting the rights
of labor unions to submit reasonable
proof that his allegations in support
of the application for an injunction
are truthful. Embodv in that law n I
provision that those arrested for con
tempt of the restraining order in la
bor disputes shall have the same right
to a trial as that accorded a person
charged with a crime.
"A bill covering our demands should
be drawn, and then insist that it must
enacted with every vital fentnrp
Many people look upon the number
thirteen (13) a3 unlucky. We don't
think there is anything unlucky in any
number. Already some have ascer
tained that the four figures In the year
1903 when added amount to 13. Wc
have looked back over the years of
the nineteenth century and find there
were in the hundred years five whose
totals amounted to 131804, 1813,
1822, 1831 and 1840, the last the year
of the writer's birth. For over sixty
years there ha!? been no "13" year, and
yet we have had some that were most
unfortunate, not to say unlucky.
During the twentieth century there
will be but four years whose totals
will be thirteen 1903, 1912, 1921 and
In the twenty-first century there
will be no thirteen year until 2029,
but it won't matter much to us, for
few now living will be here then.
Don't believe that any year is "hoo
doo" time. Depend on yourself for
good times. Be Industrious, self-denying,
temperate and honest, and
you're sure to beat any unlucky years
that you may live in. Easton (Pa.)

Cattle Ranch at a Bargain
Here is 320 acres deeded land 8
miles south of Plattner, Colo., on the
B. & M. railroad. Splendid improve
ments. One-half mile from good
school. 65 cows all under seven years
old, well bred; 32 yearling steers and
heifers; 34 last spring black galloway
calves. Cattle all dehorned and of a
very high grade; 7 splendid horses.
For a short time we are authorized
to sell this property for $6,500, and
will tako 11,000 in trade if desired.
To a man with small means an equal
ly good proposition has never been
offered. Weber & Farris, Lincoln,
The Vandalia railroad received a
charter in Indiana in 1847, agreeing to
pay to the school fund all profits over
a certain percentage. It refused to do
it. The supreme court has decided
that it must. Thus you see that the
men who run railroads will not keep
an agreement, will not be bound by
any. charter, will steal openly where
they cannot steal sneakingly. If the
public owned and operated the rail
roads, there would be no lawsuits and
bribery. The state paid the attorneys
?3oO,OOU fees to make the railroads pay
their contracts. Cheap, isn't

record of every candidate for con

That is considerable of an advance.
When the wage-workers get far
enough along that they will not vote
for the representatives of the party of
injunctions, when thev cannot be
fooled with fake orders for good3 "to
be cancelled if Bryan is elected." when
they learn that wages is one side of
an equation, the other side of which
is the cost of living, and that ex

Editor Independent: Wheat is
about 71 cents a bushel in Chicago.
This is no price when compared to
trust prices of other goods and so
much rag money. Here are some wheut
prices in former years, the highest
point in each instance;

This 71 cents is a starvation price
for the farmer when compared with
trust prices and rag money that costs
the national banks nothing and no
taxes to pay. That's what's the mat
ter with Mr. Huston in January 8U1
number of The Independent.
It is discrimination against the
farmer and wage-earner who dig al!
this wealth out of the ground.
