Justice McAvoy in the Supreme

independently against Miller, who was
named by Charles P, Murphy.

ballots cast throughout the horough
his counsel, Vincent S. Lippe, declared
that there had been so much fraud
discovered that a new primary elec?
tion would be the only equitable boIu
lion of tho fight.
Justice McAvoy said that the deci?
sion of the court must be governed by
proof that the primary election had
been so permeated by fraud, as alleged
by Hines, as to render it impossible
for the count to determine the true
result. Such proof, held the Justice,
had not been presented. The affidavits
telling of alleged frauds, he said, were
in no such number ns would justify
the court to determine the true result.

Slight Change in Eleventh
Lippe .mid last night that the rc.can

District, which the Hines people never
objected to, had justified the earlier
statement by Hines and others to the
effect that the election there was con?
ducted according to lnw and that every
one p,ot his just deserts.
"Out of 4,040 votes cast there were
only ten variations from tho original
canvass disclosed by the recanvnss,"
said Mr. Lippe. "The tally sheets bal?
anced with the police returns and in
all respects there wus a strict com?
pliance with the election law. What
slight variations there were are ac?
countable for by construction of the
law, and they are too few in the ag?
gregate to be of any account.
"There was no systematized and de?
liberate fraud shown. Doubtless Mr,
Olvany, representing Tammany Hall,
will make much of the disclosure that
there were double crosses on a few of
the ballots, thus voiding them. None
of the ballots so marked were counted
for Hines. They were segregated as
void ballots. The recount of the 11th
District, of which Mr. Hines is leader,
was made solely for 'grandstand' effect
to offset the studied and considerable
frauds committed in Charles P. Mur?
phy's Assembly district. Now it acts
as a boomerang, and adds to the con?
viction, which is becoming widespread,
that wherever the Murphy henchmen
could do so they cheated Hines."

spector Dwyer. He said from March,
1920, to November, 1920. he was de?
tailed to plain clothes duty on Staten

his brother-in-law, Shaw, was a chauf?
feur, living at r.r> Bank Street, but was
now out of work. Sutter said he had
nothing to do with tho Allers case.
Mary Schacht, secretary to Mr. Les?

received certain reports on the Allers
case from Mr. Shaw, and that she made
certain payments to Shaw for his work,
but couldn't remember how much
money she gave him or what the re?

Real Majority Cl?ture
Knie in Senqte impends
WASHINGTON. Sept. 28 (By The As?

tee of Republican Senators went to
' the White House and conferred on the
question with President Harding.
While the proposed rule has not yet
been drawn up, it was understood that

! required. After invocation of the rule

behind the plan declared to-night for

The informal committee which dis

Every Manufacturer in the,!
Country but One Accused
by Federal Grand Jury of
Sherman Act Violation
Accused of Price-Fixing
Plot Jo Bar Competition
and Boost From $40 a
Ton to $800 ?* Charged
The special Federal Grand Jury in
vestigating the alleged scandals in the
building trades revealed hy the Look
wood committee yesterday returned
two indictments under the Sherman
anti-truflU law, which, according to
Special Assistant United State? Dis?
trict Attorney David L. Podcll, involve
every terra cotta manufacturer in the.
country but one.
The first indictment, names twenty
two corporations and twenty-seven in?
dividuals connected with them, and
covei'3 the entire country. The second
I involves seven corporations. n\id eleven
1 individuals doing business in the East
? ein section of the United States, all of
whom are also named in the. first in?
All these corporations are members
of the National Terra Cotta Society,
whoso headquarters are at 1 Madison
Avenue. Mr. Podcll explained yester?
day that the reason for returning two
indictments was that one charge was
found against members of the Eastern
division of the society, who also belong
to the Eastern Terra Cotta Association,
which it had been impossible to estab?
lish against the manufacturers in the
To Plead Within Two Weeks
Both cases will be tried in the Fed?
eral Court nere and, although no time
has yet been set for pleading, the gov?
ernment prosecutors said that this
would take place within two weeks.
United States District Attorney Hay
ward himself took an active part in the
proceedings before the grand jury,
along with David L. Podell and Ben?
jamin S. Kirsh, two of his special as?
sistants in the building trades inves?
Announcement was made yesterday
that Raymond L. Wise, formerly as?
sistant counsel for the Lockwood com?
mittee, has been retained to assist in
the building trades litigation. He re?
signed a3 assistant counsel to the
Meyer committee to enter this work.
In discussing the effects of the al?
leged conspiracy in restraint of trade
yesterday, Colonel Haywurd, declared
that the government investigation,
which led to the indictments, has shown
that Finco the society was formed the
price of terra cotta has risen from
about $40 a ton to $300 and $400 a
ton, and in the case of so-called addi?
tions even as high as $800 a ton.
Supply Never Met Demand
"We find that with'-the possible ex?
ception of rare and isolated cases not a
single manufacturer has increased his
kiln capacity," he declared. "They
took pains to see that the supply never
equalled the demand."
Terra cotta, he added, is second only
to steel in importance to the builder,
and the evidence in the hands of the
government shows that the entire in?
dustry in this country is in the hands
of some twenty-three men?
A statement was issued from Col
onel Hnywnrd'u office yest?r?ay after
noon setting forth the general nature
of the charges in the Indictments.
"The first indictment charges foul
different violation? of the Sherman
I law," the statement reads. "The finit
i of these relates to the elimination of
competition through a division of terri?
tory. Prior to the organization of the
association ?11 tetra cotta manufac?
turers competed freely throughout the
country. Tho .iceiety divided the coun?
try in such manner that the majority
of the terra cotta manufacturers of
the country refused to enter and com?
peto in the New York market and have
refrained from making any sales or
shipments in the New York market by
"The second count more directly
charges price-fixing through the medi?
um of the open price plan. The de?
tail? of the business of each concern,
it is charged, were disseminated among:
all o^her concerns.
"The third count chargea that an
elimination of all competition on the
subject of so-called additions, so that
the one manufacturer v/ho had erect";!
the original structure could dictate his
own price to the builder or owner of
the building who desired to make any
extensions or to erect any adjacent
The fourth count of the indictment
charges monopoly of the terra cotta
industry of the United States. The in?
dictment alleges that the association
controlled more than 96 per cent of the
ferra cotta industry in the United
States and by reason of the evil prac?
tices in price fixing, division of terri?
tory and elimination of competition
has violated tho Sherman law and has
monopolized the industry.
Th.e second indictment, which in?
volves only tho Eastern group of manu?
facturers, contains all the counts set
forth in the indictment against the
national group and adds a further
count charging the Eastern group with
elimination of competition and price
fixing through the medium of an allot?
ment and division of business among
themselves. Ihe indictment alleges
that by common agreement each of the
Eastern manufacturers was allotted a
specific percentage of the business and
that they all agreed not to exceed their
"In the monopoly count against the
Eastern group it is charged that they
completely controlled the terra cotta
industry in the Eastern States and by
reason of their unfair and illegal prac?
tices through the price fixing, elimi?
nation of competition and by various
other methods they violated the monop?
oly section of the Sherman law.
