Vol. XX. BAKER3FIELD, CALIFORNIA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1<>, No. THINKS SNUB A TRIBUTE TO HONESTY DEXVER, Nov. 10.—Samuel Compers in an interview refused to discuss from a political standpoint Roosevelt's exclusion of himself and other labor leaders from the dinner invitation list, but said he deemed himself honored by the exclusion and cbnsidered the President's act a tribute to his honesty. • Gompers said he had always been invited to such functions heretofore l>y President Roosevelt, but had never accepted. His dealings with the President had always been on a strictly business basis. Other leaders decline to discuss the question, but many declare the action of fhe President is simply a part of a plan to divide the forces of organized labor and nullify labor as a factor in political contests. President Gompers' report was a long and exhaustive accounting of the work performed by the president during the year. At the outset he declared: "There must not be permitted to grow up or to be maintained a permanent army of unemployed. 1 ' The part or the report that touched on the Buck Stove and Range Com- j pany injunction was frequently Inter- j rupted by applause. The statement of the stand taken by John Mitchell, Frank Morrison and Samuel Gompers on the Injunction matter also was applauded. Mr. Gompers said In part: "It is Impossible to see how we can comply fully with the court's injunction. Shall we be denied the right of free speech and free press simply because wo jiri' workin.nme'.i'.' "Now it is the American Federation of Labor and the American Federa- tlonlst which are enjoined from the exercise of the right of free speech and the liberty of the press. In the' mainder faun-.- it tr -,'.- !M- anotb. >' oubli. -at ion. j s . ltunl ., v and this injunction will then be quot- fd ns a sacred precedent for further and further encroachments upon the rights of our people. ; "The suppression of freedom of the press is <i most serious undertaking, whether in autocratic Russia or In (he independence of I lie I.' lilted States. It is because of the present injunction and the contempt proceedings thereunder to suppress free' speech nnd free press that I felt It j my duty to enter a most emphatic protest. | "The decision of the supreme court i in the Hatters' case Involve every j •wage worker of our country. No more j unjust decision has ever been Issued by a court. The Prod Scott decision; did not approach its scope. "Speaker Cannon has packed committees not only against labor, but against any other real reform legls-' latlon. ' • "Congress adjourned with the ( ]e- fliint declaration of one of the Republican lenders. James P. Sherman, that' the Republican party was responsible for legislation or for the failure of legislation and that he and his party were willing to assume the responsibility. "The report of our legislative committee reveals a tale of perfidy to tlic common weal and In telling the truth perforce besmirches the name and history of a political party that found its ombldlmont ami idealism in (he martyred Liti'dii. "The Itepuhllenn party adopted declarations for (be enactment of a law ilial would legalize the worst abuse and perversion of the Injunction writ, this in direct opposition to what we have asked." .Mi 1 fjompors made n detailed re- field Noted Editor Killed by Auto ST. LOUIS, No. 10.—David DeCaiup Thompson, editor of the Northwestern Christian Advocate, died tills morning from the effects of an automobile accident in which he suffered a broken arm, and several cuts and internal injuries. Death was due primarily to a nervous shock, the age of the victim, 66, contributing. Thompson came to St. Louis from Evanston, 111., last Thursday to attend a meeting of the general committee for foreign missions of the Methodist Episcopal church. He left the hotel for a walk to the church. It was* rain- ins, and Thompson carried an umbrella. He stepped from the curb on the north side of Ltndell boulevard, when an automobile struck him and knocked him down and run over him. The driver was exonerated. BRYAN, CABBY coyNTY HORSES HE GUARDING H. Gardner of Fresno this morning lodged complaint for horse stealing against M. A. Anderson and John Mul- rlna who last week made away with five horses and two mules valued at $1000 from Gardner. The sheriff's office has been working on the case .several days and Undersherlff Baker has located Anderson in Los Angeles. I Last week Gardner brought the I stock down from the north to sell It | here. He was called back by illness I in his family and entrusted the ani- i mats to Anderson and Mulrlna during ' his absence. The two men sold two of the horses here and shipped the re- of the stock to Los Angejes for sale in the southern mat'- 1 ket and when Gardner returned both ' the men an.I his animals UL-IV n;i--iiifi ! Deputy Baker took up the C.K-O wini •"D I results. The official count shows that Taft received in Kern county 5a votes more than Bryan, but an analysis of the j figures also shows that Bryan ran bo- ' hind his ticket and that the county Is ''Democratic by a handsome majority. | Murasky, Democrat, for supreme. judge received 376 votes more than Melvin, Republican, and this may be taken as a fair indication of party strength. Murasky to be sure had Ihe endorsement of the Hearstltes. but that "party" only polled 50 votes in the entire county. Shepherd, Democratic nominee for congress, has 113 plurality over Smith, Republican. The latter was running In his home county, and certainly should have done a little better than his party vote, which If reckoned the vote for supreme judge may safely be fixed at 325. The Socialist vote decreased from 1J6 to 1)80 and the Prohibitionists gained 4, the vote being f.fi this year as against 51' in Hml.

Everything possible was WASHINGTON, Nov. 10.—in deciding the case of Berea College vs. th» Stnto nf Kentucky favorably to the state, the supreme court, holds thai the states of the union may constiti» tlonally legislate to prevent the c» education of tho white and "black races. The case was instituted to teit the validity of the state law of 1904 prohibiting white and black children from attending the same schools. Tho higher state court took the position that the white and black racei are naturally antagonistic, and th*l tho forced separation of the children of the two Is In the line of preservation of peace. Tho opinion of tho supremo court was handed down by Justice Brewef j and affirmed the finding of both th* Kentucky circuit court and the cou:t black-I of apl'^ls. Justices Harlan and Day I dissented. Justice Brewer's opinion dealt entirely with corporations as affected by the Kentucky state law and did not consider the question of Ita applicability to individuals. Proceeding upon tho theory that a state had complete control over corporations as Hi own creations, he construed the law of 1,004 as in effect an amendment to done to avoid the accident but It was inevitable. The Injured man was hurriedly removed to the office of Dr. N N. Brown in the Oil Exchange building, where the index and middle finger of the right hand were amputated. Ellis has been particularly unfortunate of late. Only recently he was injured while at work and laid up for some time.

BARfENDERS FINE HOS TS tho charter of Berea college. Responding to some of Justice Harlan's strictures, Justice Brewer said: "Thore Is no force In the suggestion that the statute, although clearly separable, must stand or fall as an entirety on tho ground that thfl legislature would not have enacted one part unless It could reach all. That the legislature of Kentucky desired t« separate the teaching of white and colored children may be conceded, but H by no means follows (hat It would not have enforced tho separation, so far fis it could do so. eve n though It could make It effective under all (he circumstance!." Contending that H would prove lm- practicable and unsatisfactory to -separate corporate from private schools, Justice Harlnn in bis «li-senting opinion said the court should nvot th.6 entire question squarely and decide whether if were a crimP, under any conditions to e<liicnie whi'.e children . ini'l negro children at the pam^ Institution He did not concede thai It should be so rcKfll'ilPrt.
