President Gompers, Secretary
Morrison and John Mitchel
Must Face the Court.
As a practical working of those
who seek "government by injunc-
tion," we have a fair example in
a case now before the country in
which President Gompers, Secre-
tary Morrison and John Mitchell,
of the American Federation of
Labor, arc cited for contempt for
keeping a boycott open.
The following dispatch from
Washington gives the particulars
of the case, and the attitude of the
Washington, July 22.—In the
Buck Stove and Range company
case, Justice Sanderson of the dis-
trict supreme court summoned
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor;
Secretary Frank Morrison of that
organization, and John Mitchell of
the executive council, and former
president of the United Mine
Workers of America, to appear in
court on September 8 next, to
show cause why they should not
be punished for contempt of the
court's injunctive order.
The citation is based on a peti-
tion of the Buck Stove and Range
Co., of St. Louis, which alleges
that an order issued by Justice
Gould, forbidding a national boy-
cott by the American Federation
of Labor, has been violated by
the public utterances and ad-
dresses of the three labor leaders
named. It also is stated that Mr.
Gompers caused to be published
in the Federationist, the official
organ of the federation, a certain
article reflecting on the court's de-
cision, and in alleged open de-
fiance printing the name of the
Buck Stove and Range company
in tlie "We Don't Patronieze" list.
Gompers is quoted as saying to
several newspaper men:
"So far as I am concerned, I
wish to state this: When it comes
to a choice between surendering
my rights as a free American cit-
izen or violating the injunction of
the court, I do not hestitate to
say that I shall exercise my rights
as between the two."
Other utterances are quoted in
which it is alleged Gompers and
Morrison, in furtherance of an al-
leged plan to nullify the court's
order, have been published editor-
ially and otherwise, offensive to
the court's decision, including the
name of the Buck Range and
Stove company, it is claimed, were
made for the jnirpose of keeping
alive the boycott as it existed be-
fore the order of the court and
were so framed as to affect the
sale of the company's products.
John Mitchell, at a meeting of
the United Mine Workers last
January, put to a vote a resolu-
tion imposing a fine of $5 on any
member of that organization who
purchased a stove or range of that
company's make. The resolution
also provided for the expulsion of
a member in default of payment of
Strayed or Stolen.

Last Sunday Rev. Grant of the
Methodist church and Rev. Ward-

treated their flocks to a little sur-

out the knowledge of any of the
members. Just before the hour
for service these ministers left
their respective churches, and
without any warning to any of the
members, took their places in each
other's pulpits and announced the
order of service. Both of these
reverends state that the surprise
upon the faces in the audience was
something wonderful to behold.
The spirit of fraternity displayed
by these ministers is indeed com-
