Natiien E. Kendall, Republican
member of Congress from Iowa,
h"s introduced in the House an
anti-injunction bill which pro
vides that no injunction or ro
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 to gain
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 legisia
tion or he would bo defeated.
His reply was to go practically
all over the country addressing,
wherever possible, gatherings of
laboring men; and to tell them
that he would go down to defeat
in the campaign rather than ad-
vocate, that he would cut off 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 lingers 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 J udge Taft when he 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
Messrs. 11. C. Ci'ouse and J. S.
