AHAINST ASPHALT TRUST. I
Whole Country Now Thrown Upon to
Philadelphia, Mnrch 27. Re
ceivers Tatuall mid Mnck of the
Nationnl Asphalt Company to-day
received copies of a decision hand
ed down by Judge Woods, the ef
fect of which will be to throw the
entire country open to real competi
tion in street paving. This is the
most far-reaching decision ever
handed down against the asphalt
trust. The St. Louis Board of
Public Improvements specified bitu
lithic pavement to be laid with
Puritan brand of cement.
Colonel Swift, president of the
Fruin Bambrick Company, one of
the subsidiary companies of the as
phalt trust, brought action against
the city, as property owner, re
straining the city from going ahead
with the work, on the ground that
it was an artificial monopoly, creat
ed by the Board of Public Improve
ments by limiting specifications.
In his decision, Judge Woods
says: "The grant of power to the
Board of public Improvements for
for the construction of streets is for
public purposes, and is for the
benefit of the city and property
owners. The prescription to let
the contract to the lowest bidder is
a mere regulation and not a limita
tion of power. The authorities in
in the interests of the public are
not bound to wait, for instance,
until a patent has expired or a
has perished, so that
1 competition may be secured, but
may, in the exercise of their legis-
lative discretion, tor the benefit of
the public, select a patented or mo-
uopolized article, and an ordinance
I requiring the use thereof is not void
j because the contract cannot be
awarded to the lowest bidder."

Von Union's Speech Shown n Hcttirn
to Ills Policies.
Berlin, March 21. Chancellor
von Billow's, specific confessions
that German foreign policy is still
modeled on Bismarckian lines have
sent a wave of gratification through
out the empire. Never before has
the Chancellor made so frank and
comprehensive an nvowal of his
adoption of the political creed of the
A critical analysis of Von Billow's
speech, which ranks as his most
popular utterance since his attack
on the British Colonial Secretary
Chamberlain in 1902, shows that
Von Bulow is disposed to defend
every phase of German policy by
means of Bismarckian precedents
ranging from the maintenance of
the Dreibuud to the advisability of
German diplomats marrying Amer
ican wives. Many Germans, espe
cially those who have never for
given the present Kaiser foruismis
sing the great Chancellor, detect in
Von Billow's speech signs that the
fatherland is paving the way grad
ually for the return to the world
policy of Bismarck's time.
It is believed that the Venezuela
incident has exerted influence in
high quarters, which is likely to
manifest itself in livelier concern
regarding interests near home.
Germany may leave to other peo
ples and other times all the restless
seeking for over-sea glory and in
terference in affairs which tend only
to sentimental advantage as far as
the fatherland is concerned.
