Natlien E. Kendall, Republican
member of Congress from Iowa,
Ins introduced in the House an
anti-injunction bill which pro
vides that no injunction or re
straining order shall be issued
without notice; that no agreement
for action shall be termed a con
spiracy unless the act agreed
upon would be a crime if com
mitted by an individual; and that
contempt of court shall not be
punished until after conviction
by a jury. It would be interest
ing to know that Mr. Kendall's
purpose in introducing this bill.
If it was merely a piece of cheap
politics, intended solely toga-,
him votes in his district and in
troduced with the full purpose
of permitting it to die in com-
mittee, it would be merely of a
piece with many such deplorable
and insincere acts of demagogues
not statesmen. But Mr. Kendall
announces that he is "in deadly
earnest" and proposes to work
"night and day" to secure the
passage of the measure. But to
what purpose? Is not the Iowa
familiar with the views of Presi
dent Taft to know that such a bill
would be vetoed as promptly as
.it reached the White House":
With Democratic majorities in
both houses of Congress and
with Mr. Bryan in the Chair
such a measure might become a
law;for it is in entire accord with
the promises contained in Mr.
Bryan's platform; although the
Democrats never regard party
promises as made to be fulfilled,
as is shown by their repudiation
of the free lumber plank in their
platform. When Mr. Taft was
nominated he was told he must
remain silent, on his views re
garding anti injunction legisla
tion or he would be defeated.
His reply was to go practically
all over the country addressing,
wherever possible, gatherings of
laboring men; and to tell them
that lie would go down to defeat
in the campaign rather than ad-
vocate, that he would cut otf his
right hand rather than sign, a
a bill which would constitute such
a blow at the judicial power of
the United States. And the
answer of the laboring men was
to snap their fingers in the face
of their leader Gompers and to
roll up majorities for Taft larger
than the most sanguine dared to
expect. The laboring men cheer-
ed Judge Taft when lie told them
to their face that he would never
approve a measure which de
prived the courts of the right to
grant injunctions, to punish for
contempt without jury trial, or
to forbid conspiracies calculated
to destroy a man's business,
even though the same act com
mited by one man would no more
be a crime than it would a con
spiracy. What then is Mr. Ken
Death of Mrs. George W. Sparks.

Lewis S. Maddox, an old soldier
of the Union army died at his
home in the northeast part of
Hennessey about 11 o'clock on
Monday night, May 24, 1909,
aged 79 years, 3 months, 12 days.
He was married to Grace F
Inman, his now bereaved wife,
Feb. 2, 1870 To them were born
ten children, six of whom are
living. Father Maddox, as he
was called by many who knew
him, united with the M. E. church
in 1853. He was formerly a resi-
dent of Sherman township, north
of the Twin church and then
united with the Christian Union
church, worshiping with them
until he removed to Hennessey a
few years ago when he transfer
red his .membership to the M. E.
Church in Hennessey. His was
a consistent Christian life, as
testified to by his old friend and
neighbor Rev. Arnote, of the
Christian Union church who
preached his funeral at the M. E
church in Hennessey, yesterday
morning, whose testimony is
also confirmed by those best ac
quainted with the deceased. The
remains were accompanied to
the church and grave by mem
bers of the G. A. R Post and
W. R. C.
