"We think our local cfinlcmpn- rary misses tlic point at issue entirely when, in a a discussion of the jailing of tin.- labor loaderw for disobeying a court order, it, reaches the conclusion |h a t the courts nre very much in the position of a referee in disputes between capital and lahor, occupying about the relation of »\ referee iu a priz* fi^lit. A uiui'h morn serious question ix involved, that of donutitu- tfquul liberty, the freedom of spoeoh and the freedom of the presH. In the OHKC under diseuwrioD, a xjonrt arrogated to itself the authority of saying that it wa« unlawful for the. officials of the American Federation of Labor to ad vis'* those in syuipnthy with the I labor or^tini/.ntionv not to purchase the output of a certain man- ' llfael Ul'illy; coneern. Our culltetll- ' Hiiffercd wrong that right, in the end might triumph. We may be sure that the people will not sanction the action of t!ie federal judge, and the matter ought not to b<" permitted to be settled by an exi'cun\e pardon.
