The Unpartizan Review, Vol. 13 ~ Paperback ~ Henry Holt
Excerpt from The Unpartizan Review, Vol. 13: January-April 1920 Under the Common Law of Conspiracy no number of men had a right to conspire to leave work together, with the intention of putting their industry into a corner where it would have to stop or yield to their demands. Con formably with this, in 1741, certain bakers in New York were arrested for striking, and punished, and before the end of the century some cordwainers in Philadelphia had a similar experience. The law of conspiracy is to the general effect that there are many acts which it is proper for a single person to per form that ir is not proper for several persons to conspire to perform. A man had a right to leave, but not to get others to leave with him. This is part of the immemorial common law, which has grown up from the experience of the Anglo Saxon race, and is embodied in the decisions of its judges. It has been modified of course by decision after decision, and occasional legislative enactment. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
