FLAX IS SECRET , ' 1
Whatever the plan agreed upon, it
was a closely guarded secret. '
There is reason to believe, however.'j
that tomorrow's discussion will hinge
about the original proposition advanced
some weeks ago of dividing seniority!
into three classes :
1. Old men to rank first.
2. Returned strikers to ra&k second.!
3. New men to rank according to
the length of their service. The ques
tion of the strikers having first ; place
to be left to an impartial tribunal.
It is known, that a majority of the
executives are willing to accept such
a program, although some of the "die
hards" would oppose it.

Tokio, Aug. 18. Intense heat prevails
here, the records of the past Jo years
having been exceeded. This is true

Men Who Testified in Contempt
of Court Proceedings Pass
Between Lines of Union Mem

Hisses and cries of "scab" greeted
witnesses for the railroad company as

As soon as court adjourned the union
men and women sympathizers estab
lished a double "picket line" in the
hallway between the courtroom , door
and' the stairway and did not break
that line until the courtroom had been
practically ; emptied.
Most of the hissing was done by
women, one woman going so far as to
point her finger at one man and call
him a "scab."
As soon as the courtroom was clear
ed the men quickly crowded down the
stairs, and formed in a targe group
out on the sidewalk in front of the
A minute later someone shoute

Witnesses and spectators were
warned at 2 o'clock this aftemeon by
Federal Judge Wolverton not to ' re
peat the demonstration.
"It has been called to my attention,"
the judge said, "that witnesses loitered
about the hallways of this building at
noon today and that their conduct was
such as to intimidate witnesses. There
fore the court will order that all per
sons in attendance upon this trial move
out of this building quietly and quick
ly and without any form of demonstra

OBDEHLT IK COUBT
Inside the courtroom the strikers
have been orderly and have listened
quietly to all the testimony. Owing
to the targe number of spectators.
Judge Wolverton has allowed witnesses
to occupy chairs in the jury box and
other seats inside the bat rail; a privi

BLAMES COMPANY , j
While Charles S. Knight, secretary
of the strike committee, was testifying
today. Judge Wolverton . interrupted
him and demanded a statement as to
what precautions' the union had taken
to prevent a violation of his injunction
order. Knight admitted that before
the order was issued that the union
had a regular picket committee with
Nick Eichner in charge, but that after
the injunction was issued no committee
was appointed to see that but one
picket was stationed at the entrance
to the Albina shops at any one time.
He said that the strike committee Jeft
the question of picket duty up to the
individual men, allowing them to come
and go as they saw fit. ,
All blame for the present trouble be

of the railroad company this morn

"If the railroao; company hadn't im
ported paid gunmen from Chicago,
we wouldn't have had this present-difficulty."
Ross told the court.
His assertion created a. small sensa
tion and brought forth a legal battle
between the opposing attorneys. Arthur
A. Murphy for the railroad company
contended that B. A. Green, counsel
for the 14 strikers, had no right
to bring out ,such testimony under
cross-examination .when it was not re
ferred to In the direct testimony.
Green held that Ross' statement I had
been voluntary,, and advised Murphy
that he was not. responsible for the
statements of, the witness. Although
a striker, Ross was a witness for the
railroad cbmpany. , .

Ross attemptecr later to tell the court
how the strike vote was taken, appar
ently in an effort to show that local
railroad employes had nothing to do
with calling the strike. . Ross started
to say something about orders from
Chicago, when Judge Wolverton stopped
him and said he didn't want to near
anything about the reason for . the

the strike was called and that it is
