Opinion of Court Approved
With Single Dissenting
vote, Clark Not Stating
Ground for Opposition.
Governor Allen Asked to De
clare Martial Law at Kan
sas City, Kansas
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5. Pick
eting in connection with a labor
strike Is unjustifiable if carried to
the point of "importunity and
dodging," the supreme court
ruled today. Decision as to
whether specific instances of pick
eting come within the court's in
hibition must be left for deter
mination of the tacts in each
such case, it was; declared, but
the court suggested that pickets
should have the right of "obser
vation communication and per
suasion" and might further be
limited to "one representative for
each point of ingress and egress."
The opinion of the court, which
was read by Chief Justice Taft,
was approved by all the justices
except Mr. Clark, i who did not
state the grounds for his dissent.
The case arose out of a strike
at the American Steel foundries
plant at Granite City, 111., where
1600 men were normally employ
ed. After shutting down, it re
sumed operations as an open shop
with-about' 350 men. about one
half of whom belonged to la
bor unions. The Tri-City trades
council, upon the refusal of the
manager of the pliant to negotiate,
declared a strike' and established
pickets. There was considerable
violence until the courts inter-;
vened and restricted the picketers'
activities. The council thereupon
contested the authority of the
courts to interfere.:
"In going to and from work,
men have a right I to as free a
passage without obstruction as
the streets afford," the supremo
court held, "consistent with the
rights of others to enjoy the same
privileges." j
While attempts to Influence
another's action cannot be re
garded as aggressions or a viola
tion of the other's rights, the
court continued, "importunity and
dogging become unjustifiable an
noyance and obstruction which is
likely soon to avor of intimida
tion." - In this case "all arguments ad
vanced and all persuasion used
were intimidation," it was declar
ed, adding that pickets should not
"be abusive, libelous or threaten
ing," nor "approach individuals
together." . i
This rule, the court explained,
might "be varied inj other case3."
The courts must, however, "pre
vent the inevitable intimidation
of the presence of groups of pick
ets, but to allow missionaries.'.'
-The action of the -counctt In
calling the strike under consider
ation was declared not "malic
ious." ; j
"The strike became a lawful
instrument in a lawful economic
struggle or competition between
employer and employes," the chief
justice stated, "as to the share or
division between them of the
Joint product of labor -and capi
tal, .. The principle . of
the unlawfulness of maliciously
enticing of laborers still remains,
and action may be ' maintained
therefor in proper cases, but to
make it applicable to local labor
unions, in such a case- as this,
seems to us to be unreasonable."
At Chicago the close of the first
day of the strike i of packing
house workers, union officials an
nounced 41,000 workmen In pack
ing houses were on strike, while
spokesmen for the packers assert
ed Chicago plants were operating
with full forces, while plants in
other centers alt continued work.
Twenty-nine thousand workers
outside of Chicago iresponded to
the strike call.' according to a
statement by Dennis Lane, secre
tary of the Amalgamated Meat
Cutters and Butcher Workmen of
North America, which called -the
strike of a ware cut averaging 10
per. cent had been decided on by
plant assemblies, composed ot
representatives of employers and
workers. "

ployed? by the big- five packers
here walked out, Mr. Lane said.

, According to a report just received by E. A. Rhoten of
this city from the New York office of the American Jersey
Cattle club, McArthur & Stauff, of Rickreall, Ore., have set a
new world's record for butterfat production by a herd of
15 or more cows for a period of six months. The yields for
the months of May to October inclusive have been checked
up by the club officials and they show the remarkable aver
age of 60.01 pounds butterfat per month or approximately
two pounds per day. No other Jersey herd in the world has
ever equaled or even approached this record.
The McArthur & Stauff herd
broke the world's Jersey record
for monthly butterfat production
last May when 15 cows averaged
60.68 pounds butterfat and in
July the same herd boosted its
own record to 67.37 pounds. The
average for June was 59. "2
pounds, for August 58.80 pounds,
September 58.49 pounds and Oc
tober 61.19 pounds. The number
of cows on test duing the past
three months was 17, all of which
were bred by their owners. The
remarkable record which this herd
is making does not represent a
few selections from among the
highest producers, but everything

On purchase plan
How will Salem have its campground. With or without
trimmings ?
This is the proposition to be finally decided upon by the
city council at a special council meeting to be held Friday
night, December 9.
Dealing death to the original ordinance bills calling for a
special election to be held January 12, at which time the
purchase of camp grounds and badly needed fire equipment
would be voted upon by the taxpayers, the council reversed
itself last night.
The orirnal camp ground purchase proposition called for
tHe expenditure o'f $7000 to cover items of $3900 for the
three blocks of property as campground site and $3100 for
present equipment.
Ilaunigartnor Ixads Fight
Alderman Joseph Baumgartnerj
led a sensational fight against the;
proposal of paying for camp
ground equipment, which he as
serted had been paid for by popu
lar subscription and which wai
virtually the legal accoutrements
of the property.. Mr. Raumgart
ner declared that he heartily ap
proved purchase of the camp site,
but said that he and many otht-r
business men would vote against
the- measure if the money were
paid back into the Commercial
Baumgartner's cause met with
hearty support from Alderman
Giesy, McClelland. Suter, Vande
vort and Marcus. Other council
men were soon won over although
Alderman Utter and aPtton in
sisted that the measure should
go before the voters in its orig
inal form.
Extra Equipment freed
The fire equipment measure,
calling for the expenditure of
$12,000 for a triple combination
pumper, met with the hearty ap
proval of all aldermen and will
probably be the most popular is
sue on the ballot as one serious
fire call now takes all of the pres
ent equipment, leaving the city
unprotected should a second fire
break out.
A warm fight threatened when
the city ordinance providing man
datory enfranchisement of at! pas
senger carrying, for-hiro busses
was Introduced for its third read
ing. This measure gives the city
council power to refuse or grant
franchises to all for hire, motor
vehicles In addition to providing a
definite parking or control plan.
