Syllabus

1. The freedom of speech guaranteed by the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment is not infringed by a decree of a state court enjoining, as a violation of the state antitrust law, the picketing of a restaurant by union carpenters and painters having no grievance against its owner other than that he had contracted for the construction of a building not connected with the restaurant business, and a mile and a half away, with a contractor who employed nonunion labor. P. 726.

2. This Court is not concerned with the wisdom of the policy underlying state laws, but with their constitutional validity. P. 728.

149 S.W.2d 694 affirmed.

Certiorari, 314 U.S. 595, to review a decree affirming an order enjoining petitioners from certain picketing. The highest court of the State refused a writ of error.
