BLOW STRUCK THE TRUSTS
Supreme Court Decides Against
Hive Ha Ljil Right to Manipulate for Inter
fcrenceof Trade -Local State Ccmblna
Hods Not Touched Upon.
WasbluRlou, Dec. 4. -In the United
States Supremo Court toilny the Atldy
stono plpo enno was tleoldeil. Tills case
Involved tho constitutionality of tho
combination of pipe manufacturers
which, It wis charged, was a trust.
Tho decision was handed down by
.Judge Peckhara, aud was ndvereo tn
tho comblnntlou. It whs therefore l'i
opposition to tho tiust. Tho opinion of
the Court of Appeals rev tho sixth cir
cuit was nfllrmcd.
In lovlewlng iliu cane, Justlco I'eck
hp.a said that It had teen brought un
der the nntl-trust act of 1890, and that
an Injunction was asked for to enjoin
the corporations engaged In tho man
ufacture of water nnd ftm plpo which
lomposcil tho combination fiom con
tinuing ImalnoHu under tho ngrcement
by which they had divided the ten 1-
tory of tho united Stntcs among
themselves, nnd by which they had ar
ranged to fix prices.
Under this ngrcement tho members
of tho combination provided for auc
tioning off tho right to malio bids for
supplying with plpo cities not allotted
territory, tho successful bidder to
meet no opposition from other mem
bers of tho trust; or, If other bids woro
made, none of them ohould bo higher
than that of the company to which the
award had been made by tho combina
tion. In cases in whim bids were asic
ed for In territory allotted to members
of tho territory, tho agreement was
that no bids should be made except un
der the supervision of tho company in
ihargo of that tcnltory under tho
Tho chnrgo was that ouch a combi
nation wns 11 violation of tho clause of
the constitution regulating Interstate
commerce. Tho District Court In
which tho caso was first heard refused
to tako this view of li, but It was re
versed by tho Court of Appeals of the
Sixth Circuit, which held the combi
nation to bo antagonistic to tho con
stitution, ordering tho Issuance of the
injunction prayed for. This latter do
ilslon wns n(Hrmcil by tho action of to
day of tho Supremo Court, with n
modification that the decision should
bo construed ns applylug to Interstate
Remarking upon tho general aspect
of tho decision, Justlco l'cckliam said:
Wo hno no doubt thai whero tho di
rect nnd Imracdlnto effect of n contract
or combination among particular deal
era In n commodity Is to destroy com
petition between them and othors, the
parties to tho contract or combina
tion may obtain Increased prices for
themselves, mich contract or combina
tion amounts to a restraint of trade
In tho commodity, even though con
tracts to buy such commodity nt tho
enhanced prlco are continually being
made. Total suppression of tho trade
In the commodity Is not necessary tn
order to render the combination one
of restraint of trade. It Is the object
of the combination in limiting and re
stricting tho right of each of tho mem
bers to transact business In tho or
dinary wav. ns well as its effects noon
the volumo or extent of the dealing in
the commodity, that is regnrded. I
The opinion then adds:
It is almost needless to ndd that we
do not hold that every prlvato enter
prise which may bo can led on chiefly
or In part by means of interstato
shipments 'is going to bo regarded
ns related to intcrcstnto com
merce no as to como within tho regu
lating power of Congress. Such enter
, prises may bo of tho wmo nature ns
the manufacturing of rellucd sugar;
that is, tho parties may bo engaged us
manufacturers of a commodity which
they thereafter Intend at some tlmo
to sell nnd possibly do sell in another
State; but ,buc1i sale ns wo bavo al
ready held Is an Incident to nnd not a
direct result of tho manufacture, itnd
so la not a regulation of or an ltlngal
Interference with lctercstato com
merce. Tho princlplo Is not affected
by anything herein decided.
The decision draws a clear distinc
tion between combinations affecting
Interstate commerce end those apply
ing to one Stato only. Tho opinion at
tractcd very great attention becnuso It
is the first opinion on tho subject of
trusts which has been handed down
since tho subject of tniBts has como

been renewed on Monday. General
Gatncrc's second report of his disas
trous battlo Is badly written nnd
leaves tho mystery of tho enpturo of
portions of two battalions unsolved.

evident by tho belated dispatches that
after finding himself completely en

he was compelled by his feebleness In

and ws very slow In sending out cav

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE
Duvid Brcmncr Henderson Is C9
yenrs old and can novur become Presi
dent of tho United Staloi hecnaso ho
was born In Old Deer, Scotland, In
1840. His parents rcmovc.l with blm
to tho United States when ho was six
years old and settled Jn Illinois. They
remained In-thnt Stato until 1813, when
thoy passed on to Iown, and that has
been his homo ever since. His boy
hood was spent on n inrm, nnd he se
cured his education at tho same tlmo
that poverty was knocking at tho door.
After being graduated from tho Upper
Iowa University ho wit prepared for
tho law, but tho Civil War called him
into tho army. Then 21 years of ago,
he enlisted as a prlvato In n.n Iowa
regiment In 1801. Ho was promptly
made a first lieutenant, mid In 180l lost
a foot In battle. For it year or more
nfter that he was engaged In enroll
ment and recruiting work, but in IStit
he entered activo service again ns Col
onel of tho 4Cth Regiment of Iowa In
fantry. At tho close of tho war ho w.ts
admitted to tho bar. Ho sm-ved, how-1
over, for several years ni Collector of I
internal Revenue befoto taking up
active law practlco In his home city of
Mr. Henderson's Congressional
career began with his election to the
Torty-clghth Congress, In 1882. Ho Is
chairman of tho Judiciary Committal
and n member of the Committee on
Rules. It is through this committee
that the Speaker cxerchie3 n largo part
ot his great authority In tho handling
of the business of Congress, nnd Mr.
Henderson's position has made him ns
familiar as uny other man with the
methods of Speaker Reed. For tho
first timo In tho history of tho country
the Speakership will ravo been eon
ferreif upon a representative of n Stato
west of tho Mississippi liver. Mr. Hen
derson Is n favorlto ninong his col
leagues In Congress, regardless of pnr
ty, and his reputation is that of a man
of high nnd Incorruptible character.
He Is n debater of vigor and eloquence.
The Speaker of tho House of Repre
sentatives Is very much moro than n
mere presiding officer, nnd indeed ho Is
the most powerful personage In tho
Government next to tho Picsldont. It
Is scarcely to bo expected that Mr. Hen
derson will show precisely tho traits
that earned tho title of nutocrnt and
czar for Mr. Reed, but thero Is reason
to show firmness and clllcloncy.
