WASHINGTON, Sept. 7. (By The Associated Press)
Legality of the order obtained by the government from Dis
trict; Judge Wilkerson at Chicago, restraining the striking
railway shop crafts and the railroad brotherhoods from in
terfering with transportation in prosecution of the shop
men's strike, was assailed today in a suit filed in the supreme
court of the District of Cduirfbia ;by the international broth
erhood of electrical workers, one of the organizations on
strike. The question of jurisdiction of the Chicago court was
also raised by the petition which denied that the plaintiffs
had been guirty of any illegal act "before or since" Julyt 1.

permanent Injunction to prevent
United States Attorney Gordon

Vice President Stent, 'who for
30 years had been Identified with

quickest possible time.
Today less than 20 feet were
cleared on the 3600-foot level of
the Kennedy mine from which
rescue crews for 11 days franti

the Argonaut shaft. This leaves
approximately 260 feet yet to be

the danger of being recognised.

As a matter of fact, the school
