derson, Jr., of Jersey City and Joseph
M. Wr. New in of Pennsylvania, coun
sel for George Rice of Marietta, O.,

dard Oil company, a New Jersey cor
poration, charging tliat the company

tion of the anti-trust laws of the

company in Ohio was declared illegal
by the courts of that state, but that
the company, instead of dissolving,
in obedience to that decision, has, by
subterfuge, evaded tho Ohio decision
and that the Now Jersey corporation
is merely a holding company for the
Ohio concern. The bill asks that not
only the company bo dissolved, but
that Its assets bo distributed among
Us stockholders after paying off Its
outstanding securities. For tho ac
complishment of this purposo It i7
asked that a receiver bo appointed.
