J. Mandelberg & Co. Must Pay $2,000 for Violating Law
J. Mandelberg & Co., raincoat manufacturers, of 18 Twentieth Street, were ordered yesterday in the Federal District Court to pay a fine of $2,000 for violations of the contract labor law. In order to avoid the unpleasantness of Ellis Island, the men were told to come to Montreal, and to make their entry into this country by the Canadian border.

At the trial before Judge Hand the raincoat firm urged that they were within the law in bringing the cementers in, as there was a lack of skilled hands in that line in this country. Their argument was not, however, acceptable. W. A. Walker, head of Mandelberg & Co., was one of the Titanic victims.
