Comes to Defense of Tariff
DA N VILLEX 111.. Sept. 10. Speaker J.
G. Cannon tonight opened, his campaign
for re-election to Congress in hl horns
town. Almost his entire address of nearly
two hours was devoted to the labor ques
tion. He psJd his respects to Samuel
Gompers. president of the American Fed
eration of Labor, who spoke here on La
bor day and attacked Mr. Cannon, In
viting union worklngmen to vote against
Mr. Cannon plainly said he would never
rote In Congress for the boycott and
some other things demanded by Gompers,
Including an anti-injunction law that
would make flsh of one and fowl of
another. Mr. Cannon was escorted from
his home to the theater by the Cannon Es
cort Club, an organization that has taken
part In every campaign here for 20 years.
Says Tariff Is Big Issue.
In leading up to a reply to Mr.
Gompers. Mr. Cannon said that there
. were two paramount Issues In this
campaign, one, the tariff; and the other
the Integrity and independence of the
After devoting considerable atten
tion to the position of the two leading
parties on the tariff question and dis
cussing prosperity, the recent financial
depression and the prime place held by
the United States in commercial affairs,
Mr. Cannon concluded that the de
pression of last October did not affect
the farmers, who constitute one-third
of the population, that the people In
the aggregate were never In so good
condition to withstand a depression
and that the country was fast recover
ing from its effects. He believed that
prosperity equalling that of the last
few years had already returned.
Taking up the Judiciary, Mr. Cannon
raid that the Democratic platform this
year declared that the "courta of Just
Ice were the bulwarks of our liberties
and we yield to none In our purpose
to maintain their dignity." He said
that Bryan's platform renewed the
pledge In the platform of 18(6 to com
pel the Federal courts to grant Jury
trials In contempt proceedings.
Likens Bryan to Joab.
"This attitude of Mr. Bryan and his
.party." said the speaker, ty be Illus
trated by the story of Joab and Amass,
.-which we find In the Old Testament.
'And Joab said to Amasa: "Art thou In
health, my brother?" and Joab took
Amasa by the beard with the right
hand to kiss him. But Amasa took no
,-heed to the sword that was In Joab's
;hand. so he smote him therewith in
ithe fifth rib and shed out his bowela
to ths ground.' So Mr. Bryan would
follow the example of Joab with the
"The Federal Judiciary Is a co-ordl-.rate
department of the government, so
declared by the Constitution. The writ
of injunction and the power to punish
for contempt are older than our Con
stitution and the Constitution recog
nized the Independence of the Judiciary
and especially declares: The Judicial
powers shall extend to all cases In law
and equity arising under this Consti
tution." "The difference between the Demo
cratic platform of 189S and that of 1909
Is only in words: the meaning is the
same. In 1S9S Mr. Bryan said in his
platform Just what he meant. This
year he seeks softer phraseology and
employs the diplomacy of Joab, giving
the kiss while he wields the sword.
"We might appropriately change the
name of the Democratic candidate to
William Joab Bryan."
History of Injunction Fight.
Mr. Cannon then. took up the history
of the demand for anti-injunction leg
islation and pointed out that the de
mand for the Jury trial in contempt
proceedings came first after the pun
ishment of Eugene .V. Debs, now candi
date for President on the Socialist
ticket, but in 1894 the leader of the
railroad strike. He referred to the
calling of the Federal troops to Chi
cago by President Cleveland and re
cited the history of the attempt by va
rious Congressmen to pass a law 'In
1896 to take from the courts the power
to grant injunctions in' labor disputes
and their power to punish contempt.
He said that while the bill was
passed by a Democratic Senate, on
June 30. 189. the day che 64th Con
gress adjourned, and although the
Democrats indorsed such legislation
in their platform of 1898, both actions
were accepted by the people as an at
tack on the Judiciary and aided materi
ally in ths overwhelming defeat of
Mr. Bryan. The Republican House

VIOLATION OF STATE RIGHTS

GOVERNMENT WILL APPEAL
Clause of Rate Law Forbidding Rail

ucts Held Unconstitution
al In Test Case.
PHILADELPHIA. Sept. 10. Declaring
it to be drastic, harsh and unreasonable
and an invasion of the rights Of the
states and therefore repugnant to the
Constitution, the United States Circuit
Court for the Eastern District of Penn
sylvania today dismissed the suits of the
Federal Government to enforce the com
modities clause of the Hepburn railroad
act against the anthracite coal-carriers
of this state. Judges George Gray and
George H. Dallas filed opinions dismiss
ing the suits and Judge Joseph Buffing
ton dissented' but did not file an opinion.
The commodities clause prohibits rail
road, companies to transport In Inter
state commerce any article or commodity
manufactured, mined or produced by
them or under their authority. The case
was 'argued in June, United States Attorney-General
Bonaparte delivering the
principal argument for the Government.
The effect of the commodities clause. If
constitutional, would be to confine the
mining of anthracite coal by the rail
roads to that for use In Pennsylvania
only, and compel the railroads to sell all
the mining property they are interested
in, either directly or indirectly. It is
almost certain that the case will be ap
pealed, -directly .to the United States Su
Invades Rights of State. -
The principal opinion was written by
Judge Gray, who, as president of the
anthracite strike commission, has an in
timate knowledge of the mining of hard
coal and of the matiy -ramifications in
the ownership of the coal mines. Judge
Dallas said in his opinion that it cannot
be denied that the commodities clause
was enacted "not actually for the regu
lation of interstate commerce, but really
to coerce the conformity of Interstate
business with a 'policy' approved by Con
gress." Judge Gray in his opinion discussed at

42 Miles an Hour Official
Trials Soon Begin.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 10. Orvnie
Wright today broke the world's record for
time and distance for a heavier-than-air
flying machine, which he established yes
terday. In a flight requiring great skill
on account of a ten-mile wind, he circled
around the drill-grounds at Fort Meyer
58 times in 65 minutes and 62 seconds, ex
ceeding the time of yesterday's record
flight by 3 minutes 37 seconds. The flight
was witnessed by nearly 1000 persons.
Throughout the day the weather was
threatening and Mr. Wright did not ar
rive at the, field until after 4 o'clock. The
machine was wheeled across the field on
the detachable wheels and placed on the
Pitches When Wind Strikes.
At 5:08 the aeroplane rose from the
ground almost immediately after leaving
the single starting rail. It continued to
climb higher with each Bucceselve round
of the field, until It reached an altitude
of 75 feet. For the first 30 rounds the ma
chine flew as smoothly as on Its prevloi-s
flights, but from that time on it was seen
to pitch at the turns, as the breexe from
the west struck it.
Whenever the machine pitched, it could
be plainly seen from below that it re
sponded promptly to every move of the
levers by the operator. . One of Mr.
Wright's assistants marxed the time in
large ngures at Intervals on the roof of
a shed in order that Mr. Wright might
see how long he had been In the air.
A gust of wind, unusually strong,
struck the aerial flyer during the 42d
round, and it plunged sharply, causing
the crowd ' to exclaim In alarm. Mr.
Wright then brought his machine lower,
but on the 53d round he had reached an
altitude of 200 feet: Mr. Wright came
down at the northern end of the field
