CENSORSHIP OFMWSPAPERS UTILITY'S AIM Milwaukee Street Car Company Seeks to Prevent Crusade Ajjalust Its Faros. Flying Admiral in Flag Ship CASE TAKEN TO HHGHEST COURT MILWAUKEE}, Jan. 23.--Danaorshlp, and perhaps editorship of tho neW«- papra of tho country through Injunction, IB the Him ot the utilities, as represented by tho street ear Hyetem of thte city in an appeal to the fciuprome Court of an otherwise unimportant case. For the- first tinio the theory is advanced that court« have the power to prevent publication of articles whoso wor-dlngor contents are unknown but which might in the opinion of tioin-o judgo be inflammatory of public opinion. For the first time there is an effort to use the oiton-abueed Injunction to do by judicial decree what tho Constitution saytj may not. b lono by Con- greee or the legislators of the states. Thte is found in the frank statement of tho attorneys for the street railway company: "There must be some curb on the rights of newspapers to attack large corporations. Our corporations a« well a« our government must be protected from unwarranted attacks by newspapers. The court inuat uee the power of Injunction to restrain newspapers from printing what ' they please." Such Vfaa tho Appeal of Attorney Sullivan for the street railway in asking- for an Injunction against the Post, a small weekly paper which started a crusade for lower street car i'aree. Tho Question of lower fares will, In all probability, be settled by the railroad commission long before t h a i appeal to tho Supremo Court can he argued or -deckled. But there 13 a p - j parontiy u desire to obtain a precedent w h i c h may be carried to other states The, owned by a corporation of which Walter A. Be-lscn Ie the head, eervee North Milwaukee, a suburb, annexed a year ago. Suburban residents were promised the 'Ubnr-flls ot the ally's utility rates. The faro In Milwaukee is seven I cents. North Milwaukee, in the (second zono outside the city, paid 131 cents. A reduction of seven cents was i 11 powerful argument when tho suburb was asked to give up Us identity. No reduction of rates was made. Instead tho company asked for revision of all its ratee, hoping to get! · an Increase in city far':e. When tho railroad commission delayed decision, the POHI got into action. A reader sent a, communication, which was printed, signed, "Pro Bono Ptiblieo." It urged car ridera to re-j CUHO payment, eaying no policeman ; would arrest anyone for such action. The street car company asked fo an injunction againls publication any similar article, declaring it w: calculated to incite violence-, it, d dared in uiy people followed the a vico of tho article, t h a t fares wei being lost. .. . \ Linked w i t h the Post 1 at? flcfendan* svero "Bono Puulico" mid Kichard Kc a n d John Dot;, as representatives c those who had resisted Uio farc«. A clear-cut issue on t h e power c I. he courts to interfere i v i t h t h e prtv- was made by \ V l l l k i m V. H a u n u n t ;i»d Soitiilor .'Irving 1*. Lanigan, wh. ropretfcmed Bolso-r. Other a t t o r n e y appeared for tho car riders and "!'!· Ikmo." "Tliif issue- is fundamental. It. i- ;iu f f f o r l to ovade tho Constitution I t in fin a t t a c k on tho rre-edom,of tlu whole press,' 1 .said I l a n n a n . .ludgo G-chrz refused to Issued t h e i n j u n c t i o n , but. hla comtuonts wort s i g n i l i c n n t . He indicated that courts have t h e right to ipfiuc injunction? against, newspapers but t h a t the fact*: alleged (iid not 6how the necessity in this cast. Tho Hired car company appealed to tho Supreme Court. There will be i hen ring late in the fall. ' A sorioiiH aspect of the matter JH that Judge Oohrz ie regarded an scrupulously honest. He has tho reputation of being free from alliance^ of any kind, corporation or otherwise. Ho is altio regarded as able. That he- believes courts have this power means mni'o then if he wore a political judge, ci-hoing the wishes of secret masters. It le for this reason that file decision of the Supreme Court may be- ·-.! no important to the whole newn- f i r M . Rear-Admira! A. W. Mawihall, knows M the "Flying Admiral," in his plane at the annual All-Amorlcan Air 'meet recently held at Miami Beach. Notice the two-star insignia of the rear-admiral on the.aide of his plane.

ANOTHER CIVIL SUIT CONTINUED; JUROR WITHDRAWN UXIONTOWN, Jan, 23.--Another case, th« third within the week, where the statement of claim proved at variance with the facts, resulted in a plea of surprise yesterday afternoon, the withdrawal of a juror and the coatlnuance of a case on trial before Judge S. John Morrow. The suit was a d; niago action instituted again John Maygor, August Solatrlck and Joseph Syb'le, all residents of Reppert b o u h v a r d and the owners each of a dog. The canines, it was charged, bit and ; snapped at a horse, causing it. to run away and wr»ck (.he- buggy it, was drawing, severely i n j u r i n g Bartolomeo Vetrano, the owner and driver. Vet- rauo sued for heavy damages charging he was hi id up for m a n y weeks a n d p e r m a n e n t l y affected in his earning powers. . Tho pleadings in the caso charged that tho incident occurred in the Rep- port boulevard, Uniontown. The facts an produced by witnesses disclosed the scene of tho attack to have been in a wayside alloy. The plaintiffs also failed to charge that th* dogs svere vicious and at large, the. owners, knowing them to bo dangerous. Votrano, a horticulturist, suffered a broken collarbone, had his buggy smashed and waa incapacitated for several weeks, ho testified.
