Stran 334 - Territory of the United States or of the District of Columbia, or in .restraint of trade or commerce between any such Territory and another, or between any such Territory or territories and any State or states or the District of Columbia, or with foreign nations, or between the District of Columbia and any State or states or foreign nations, is hereby declared illegal.
Stran 341 - means all matters affecting or relating to work done or to be done by workers, or the privileges, rights, and duties of employers or workers in any industry, not involving questions which are or may be the subject of proceedings for an indictable offence...
Stran 340 - Proceedings in the Court shall not be impeached or held bad for want of form, nor shall the same be removable to any Court by certiorari or otherwise ; and no award, order, or proceeding of the Court shall be liable to be challenged, appealed against, reviewed, quashed, or called in question by any Court of judicature on any account whatsoever.
Stran ix - THE average wage earner has made up his mind that he must remain a wage earner. He has given up the hope of a kingdom to come, where he himself will be a capitalist, and he asks that the reward for his work be given to him as a workingman.
Stran 130 - It may not be improper to suggest in this connection that although the prosecution in this case was against the employer of labor, who apparently under the statute is the only one liable, his defense is not so much that his right to contract has been infringed upon, but that the act works a peculiar hardship to his employees, whose right to labor as long as they please is alleged to be thereby violated.

Stran 130 - The legislature has also recognized the fact, which the experience of legislators in many states has corroborated, that the proprietors of these ,establishments and their operatives do not stand upon an equality, and that their interests are, to a certain extent, conflicting. The former naturally desire to obtain as much labor as possible from their employees, while the latter are often induced by the fear of discharge to conform to regulations which their judgment, fairly exercised, would pronounce...
Stran 283 - With the rapid extension of trade unions, the tendency is toward the growth of compulsory membership in them, and the time will doubtless come when this compulsion will be as general and will be considered as little of a grievance as the compulsory attendance of children at school.
Stran 116 - The American standard of living should mean, to the unskilled workman, carpets, pictures, books, and furniture with which to make home bright, comfortable, and attractive for himself and his family, 'an ample supply of clothing suitable for winter and summer, and above all a sufficient quantity of good, wholesome, nourishing food at all times of the year. The American standard of living...
