IN LABOR CASES
Supreme Court Sets
tion of Tl:
Samuel Oompers, John Mitchell and ,
Frank Morrison Escape.
GREW OUT OF COURT INJUNCTION
Chiefs Stentenced to Jail, but Con
victions Are Set Aside.
POINT OF MATTER INVOLVED
Jmllcm Holme' Who Henri the
Opinion, Sny Contempt Are Not
to fie Treated n Conspira
cies Tito Dissent.
WASHINGTON, May ll.-The contempt
sentences Imposed by the district su
preme court on Samuel Gompers, John
Mitchell and Prank Morrison, labor lead
ers, were set aside today by the supremo
court for tho second time as barred by
the statute of limitations.
Justice Holmes In beginning the opin
ion said that contempts wero not to be
treated as conspiracies, a point urged on
the court In behalf of tho labor leaders.
He said the case turned on tho point
that the contempt proceedings should
have been started within three years from
the dale of (he committing of tho of
fenses. U said proceedings for contempt
should be speedy and thus come within
the purpose nf the statute of limitations,
which require prosecutions within thrco
years. Justice Pitney and Vandevcntcr
The contempts charged against the la
bor leaders occuricd In 1907 and early In
1908, about the time thn District of Co
lumbia supreme court Issued an Injunc
tion prohibiting the federation officials
from boycotting the Bucks Stove and
Range company of- St. Louis, then In a
labor war with organized labor.
The labor leaders were sentenced to Jail,
but the supreme court of tho United
States In 1911 set thp conviction aside be
cause the labor lenders hadbcen pro
ceeded against as It the procedlngs were
part of the boycott suit. The district

Conclusion of Judnre Holme.
In concluding his decision Justice
Holmes said In part:
"Kven If the statute does not cover the
case by Its express words, as wo think It
does, still in dealing with the punishment
of crime a rule should be laid down, If
not b congress-, hr thfs-CTJttrCT'h 'power
to punish for contempt must havo norno
Jlmlt In time, nn in defining that limit
we should have regard to what has been
tho policy of the law from the founda
tion of the government. By analogy, If
not by enactment, the limit Is three
"In a country where not even treason
can be prosecuted after a lapso of three
years It could scarcely be supposed an
Individual would remain forever liable to
a pecuniary forfeiture.
"The result In that the Judgments,
based, as they are, mainly on offenses
that could not be taken Into considera
tion, must be reversed."
The decision settled the point that con
tempts of court are crimes. Tho point
has been raised In contempt cases
throughout the country.
Justice Holmes said that contempts
are infractions of tho law, visited with
punishment as such, and if they wore
not crimes the court was In enor as to
the most fundamental characteristics of
crimes as that word hns been understood
in Kngllsh speech.

"Why, Bryan didn't even vole for

"He did too," snapped Rogers. "I'll bet

"Bet nothing," shrieked Fanning.
"Who would you leave it to7"
"I'm willing tn leave it to Bryan him-

"Iave It to Bryan!" sneered Fanning.
