first suit of that nature ever
filed against a labor leader in the
United States—three officials of
unions, the members of which are
striking for better working condi
tions on the liarriman lines, were
ordered by the Government to ap
pear January 1 before the United
States Court of the Western Dis
trict of Illinois, at Danville.
The men summoned are M. F.
Ryan and A. Ilinznian, president
and vice-president respectively of
the Railway Carmen of America,
and J. A. Franklin, international
president of the Brotherhood ol’
Boilermakers. The summons was
issued at the instance of Judge
Wright, of the Federal District
Court, and approved by Chief
Justice White, of the United
States Supreme (,'ourt.
The original court order is di
rected against the International
Association of Machinists and its
president, James O’Connell, of
Washington, I). ('., and was
brought by the Illinois Central
railroad. Heads of the other strik
ing unions and about 200 minor
officers and employes are named
in the summons.
Five unions that are striking on
the Harirnan lines have joined to
gether to prosecute the strike, and
local leaders believe that the the
ory of the railroads is that the
combinations of the unions is a
violation of the Sherman law. The
railroad asks that the men he or
