Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...they may, if they choose, repose in their officers authority to order them, or any of them, on pain of expulsion from their union, peaceably to leave the employment because the terms thereof are unsatisfactory. But it is unlawful for them to combine and quit work for the purpose of compelling their employer to withdraw from his relations with a third party, for the purpose of injuring that third party. A strike, or a preconcerted quitting of work, by a combination of railroad employees, is, in itself, unlawful, if the concerted action is knowingly and willfully directed by the parties to it for the purpose of obstructing and retarding the passage of the mails, or in restraint of trade and commerce among the States. A quotation from the syllabus of the decision in the case of Waterhouse et al. v. Cromer, decided in 1893 by the circuit court of the United States for the western district of Georgia, southern division, reads as follows: Construing section 1 of the act of July 2, 1890 chap. 647, acts of 1889-90, antitrust act, the act of February 4, 1887 chap. 104, acts of 1886-87, interstate-commerce act, and the act of March 7, 1889 amending the interstate-commerce act together with this section 5440, it will be seen that a combination of persons, without regard to their occupation, which will have the effect to defeat the provisions of these acts inhibiting discriminations in the transportation of freight and passengers, and to restrain the trade and commerce of the country will be obnoxious to the penalties contained in this section. Now, it is true that in any conceivable strike upon the transportation lines of this country, whether main lines or branch roads, there will be interference with and restraint of interstate or foreign commerce. more
