Washington John L. was lined and the United Mine Workers for con- tempt today, and the government kept hanging over Lewis the threat of a jail -sentence. The possibility of Jail still remain- ed because Judge T. Alan Oolds- borough imposed the lines only for criminal contempt. He will act Fri- day on a finding that Lewis and the UMW are guilty also or civil contempt for failing to heed a. court's stop-strike order. Assistant Attorney General H. Graham Morison said the govern- ment mlRht recommend a Jail nen- tcncc Friday If the coal miners are not working. He said frankly that the purpose of Uie delay was to see whether tho miners now settle down to full work- ing schedules. It was not clear from reaction In Uie field what the miners might do. Some said "We got a dirty dcal.- Others called the fines "not too Frank Hughes, president of the United Mine Workers district three, today declared fining of the union. and 'Lewis would not Kettle the 1s- ic. Morison recommended only for criminal contempt. ouRh accepted the recommendation but said It had been his own Incli- nation. to send Lewis to Jail. .Taw Twitch Lewis sat silently through the pro- ceedings In U. S. district court. HU massive Jaws twitched but otherwise he Rave no sign of emotion. But his attorney. Welly K. Hop- kins, cried out that the government attorneys were demanding "their pounds of flesh." He also accused the government or motives. That brought protest from Morison and Oolds- borough ruled tlie remarks out of order. Hopkins shouted: "God forgive them. They know not what they do to all tho men. women and children In the jurisdiction of this union." Criminal contempt is a penalty for disobedience of a court, or Injury to tho dignity of the court and iU orders. Civil contempt proceedings are means for enforcing a court order if unobcycd. The fines are Just double what the bushcy-browcd UMW chief and his miners had to pay after they similarly were found pullty to 19-W of contempt for Ignoring a stop-strike order. Then Ooldsborough fined and tlie union but the Supreme court cut the unlon'i fine to Immediately after Goldsborough. acted, Green that punishment of labor or labor leaders for exercising the right to stop work "will cause resentment la tlie minds of those directly concern- ed and by those who are indirectly affected." Will Appeal Lewis' Attorney, Welly K. Hop- kins, filed notice of Intention to ap- peal the contempt conviction. This was done right after sentence imposed. Under civil contempt. It would be possible to impose a fine that In- creased with each day the miners were Idle; a fine of a day. for Instance, for each day the miners stayed out, Hopkins, the union's lawyer, told tlie Judge such fines as the govern- ment suggested would inflict "grtcv- out injuries" on tlie miners. He said the penalties asked for "wore without parallel." Speaking of the miners, said "I say to the government arc not second-rate citizens." Ho added: "There's no caste system un- touchables as yet." A.F.L.
