GOMPERS STILL DEFIANT
fConttnud from First Pae
referred to the recent panic and said It
was an Indictment against our civiliza
tion that such a paralysis of industry
should be possible and that those respon
sible "for the unnecessary and wanton
misery of so large a mass of workless
workers" should be held accountable.
He reported the chartering during the
rear of 'J34 new unions and that on Sep
tember 30 there were affiliated with the
Federation 116 international unions hav
ing :8.70i local unions: two industrial de
partments In the building and metal
trades: 3S state federations; 6f6 city cen
tral bodies: 683 local trade and federated
The unions had resisted a wholesale
cutting of wages during the depression
and had praotlcally averted It. He urged
that thev continue this policy.
He reported great progress In the labor
movement in Canada, where efforts were
made to send labor members to the leg
islature. The labor movement was also
advancing In Porto Rico, where 11
imlons had been organised and several
remedial laws secured. He also told or
steps taken by the National Farmers
Vnlon for co-operation with the Federa
tion. He told of closer relations with
W ill ?ot Give Cp Free Speech.
Mr. Gompers made a detailed report on
the Buck Stove Range Company boy
cott case. In which he and other officers
of the Federation were enjoined from
publishing any allusion to the dispute
with that company and were afterwards
summoned for contempt of court In vio
lating the Injunction. He then says:

Objections to Injunctions.
Injunctions as Issued against wrkmen
sr, never applied to or Issued analust
any other citlaen of our country. These
injunctions are an attempt to deprive .111
xene of our country when they are workmen
of the rlKhl of trial by Jury. They
are an effort to fasten an oiTenae upon
workmen who ara Innocent of any illegal
act. They ara Issued In trade disputes to
make outlaws of men who are not even
charged with doing thlnas In violation of
anv law of state or Nation These injunc
tions Issued In labor disputes are an indi
rect assertion of a property right in men.
when these men -are workmen crssed In
a legitimate effort to protect or to advance
their natural rights and interesls.
The writ of Injunction, beneticent in Its
original purpose, has been pcrverteii from
the prote.-llnn of property and property
rights and extended to the inva-lon of per
eocdl tishts and human freedom.
The Injunction must never be used to
curtail or Invade personal rights
! must never be used ill an effort to
punish crime. It must never be used as a
means to set aside trial by Jury.
Yet injunctions as Issued against work
men are ued for all these purposes and
are never used or Ivsued against any other
citizen of our country for such purposes,
and not even -axalnst workmen unless tiiey
a-e engsged In a labor dispute. Such In
junctions have no wttrrant in law. and are
the result of Juriirtdl usurpation and Ju
dicial leaHslation. which usurp the place of
I'oiigreestonat legislation and are repugnant
to constitutional guarantees.

Dealest Istbor t nioo la Trust.
He. then recited the Supreme Court
decision In the Danbury Hatters Union
ens, wherein the union was declared a
trust and to have violated the anti-trust
law. He denied that this decision neces
sarily constituted a labor union a trust.
H dilated on the difference between a
,niQiiQ30ly . in the. production f a -material
commodity and a labor union
which controls the labor power of its
members.. He said that IS workmen in
Missouri had also been Indicted for vio
lating the Sherman law by aiding their
fellow-workers to obtain the prevailing
rate of wages denied by a shipowner.

the use of injunctions. H declared
that what they asked was already law

Entangled in Litigation.
He told of several suits against the
Federation now pending, and said It
was the evident purpose to entangle
the Federation In constant litigation
at enormous expense of time and
money. The assessment for litigation
was already almost exhausted, and the
Injunction cases were still pending. He
would not recommend addltlonaj as
sessments or appeals for voluntary
contributions for such expenses. He
opposed "assuming to do the Impossible
that is, to be represented by compe
tent legal counsel" but proposed that
they should personally, as best they
could, defend their rights before the
courts and take the consequence!. He
could see no remedy, "unless there
shall be a quickening -of "the con
sciences of our Judge or the relief
which Congress can and should afford."
Bitter Attack on Cannon.
He then reviewed the proceedings

He accused Mr. Cannon of punishing
Mr. pearce for introducing the antl

told of the rejection of the measures

said labor conditions on the Panama

NEW YORK CITY'S POSTMASTER
SHOT DOWN IX STREET.
Postal Official Fired Fpon While
Accompanied by Little Daughter.
Assaulter Kills Himself.
NEW YORK, Nov. 9. Postmaster Ed
ward W. Morgan, of this city, was shot
down In the street as he was leaving
his house In 146th street for the Post
off ite this morning by Krlc H. Sli :key,
a stenographer employed by a down
town law firm, who then shot and killed
himself. The single bullet which struck
Mr. Morgan entered at the tight side of
the abdomen and passed ouc at the lef
side without penetrating the wal:s.
There Is no internal trouble, and there
is every likelihood that the wounded
man will recover.
The only excuse known for the shoot
ing was that Mackey had complained to
the authorities at the Postoffice at
Washington that his mail had been tam
pered with. Besides a revolver, it
was found that Mackey carried a dag
get and a slungshot.
Mackey was an Englishman. SI years
old and he formerly was employed In
The shooting took place In the pres
ence of Miss Dorothy Morgan, the 11-year-oli
daughter of the Po itmaster,
who was accompanying him to the sub
way station on her way :o school.
Mackey had been pacing up and down
the sidewalk near the corner of Broad
way and 14th street for two hours be
fore the shooting. Evidently he had never
seen the Postmaster before, for as he met
Mr. Morgan he asked:
"Are you Postmaster Morgan?" At
Mr Morgan's affirmative reply. Mackey
drew his revolver and fired. The Woulid
ed man fell to the sidewalk and. aj two
witnesses of the shooting came run
ning up. Mackey lay down on the side
walk, opened his vest and sent one bui
lt t Into his head and another entiired
his heart. He was dead when ths first
man reached him. Mr. Morgan declared
that he did not know Mackey and never
saw him before the shooting.
Mackev left a letter in his room in
which he declared that his act was "the
last protest of a poor man against the
custom of never enforcing laws against
prominent or wealthy people."
Mackey stated also that revenge was
one of the motives which animated him
and that he knew he was not morally
Justified in killing the postmaster, and
that most men would consider his act
that of an Insane man. He asserted that
the postmaster had withheld a registered
letter addressed to Mackey under a trade
name and had insisted that he produce
a certificate showing his right to receive
Mackey declared that he was reconciled
to killing himself because of his failing
sight, which, he said, would leave him
only a bare existence for the rest of his
life, and that he chose the postmaster
as his victim because he was the most
prominent man who had antagonized him.
