United Mine Workers of America resolution pardoning of Alex Howat
Creator: United Mine Workers of America
Date: January 5, 1923
John Morgan and James Hunter of Arma, Kansas, were leaders of the United Mine Workers of America Local Union 3962. In this resolution they ask Kansas governor Jonathon Davis to "right the wrong that was committed by the Industrial Court Law" by pardoning Alex Howat, August Dorchy, Willard Titus, John Fleming Sr, James McIlwrath and Hearl Maxwell from the county jail in Girard. All of these men protested the creation of the Court of Industrial Relations and refused to follow rules set forth by the court, and were subsequently jailed. During his run for governor, Davis opposed the Court of Industrial Relations and campaigned that if elected he would work to abolish the court. The Industrial Court was created in a special session of the Kansas legislature in 1920 to oversee labor disputes in the state.
