under tho aicumcd protection of the
The so-called h.ithtub tiust. composed
of manufacturers of enamel ware, was
the concern Involved. The court In an
t pinion read by Justice McKenna unani
mously aftlrmed the decree of the Fed
eral Court for the District of Maryland
dissolving the trust na an unlawful
combination In restraint of trade.
In many respects the bathtub trust
ca? presented the same Issues that are
Involved In thn I'nlted Shoo Machinery
case iind In the dissolution sull recently
brousht by the Government against tho
moving picture film monopoly. To-day's
decision Is likely to have an Important
bearing on both these cases.
The Government won a complete vic
tory through to-day's action of the court
and Attorney-General Wlckersham ex
pressed great satisfaction, H person
ally congratulated K. II. Grosvcnor. As
sistant Attorney-General, who prepared
the bill and carried on the civil case for
the dissolution and who also had charge
of the criminal suits brought against
some of the defendants In the I'nlted
States Court for the Kaatern District of
Michigan. The criminal cases were
baited to nw.ili the outcome of the civil
suits, but now thry will he taken up
"rttle linn M a to Patent.
Since the decision of the Suprcma
Court establishing the rights of the
owner of a patent, given In the Dick
Henry mimeograph case last spring,
there has been much doubt, even on the
part of the law officers of th,e Govern
ment, as to Just how far the highest
i oui t would go in decreeing the dissolu
tion of thocp combinations In which the
monopulv rests wholly or In part on
rights secured by patents. The de
cision to-day made It very clear that
the Supreme Court will not permit a
monopoly that Is enjoyed under a patent
to be perverted to sanction uufawful
trade agreements by which prices can
be controlled from the producers to the
consumer and all of the necessary power
.ind oppression of a trade monopoly ex
ercised. I nlarrful AirrrmrnK,
"The agreements clearly transcended
what was necersary to protect the use
oj the patent." said Associate Justice
McKenna In considering the trade agree
ments under which the products of the
bathtub trust were marketed, "and the
monopoly which the law conferred upon
It. They passed to the purpose and
nccompllhed the reitralnt of trade con
drmned by the Sherman law."
Mr. Grosvenor, who tried the cae,
said to-day, referring to the bearing the
decision will have on monopoly secured
by patent rights;
"On the argument in the Supreme
Court the main reliance of the defend
ants was the dccUlon In Dick vs. Henry,
called the mimeograph case, tendered
by the Supreme Court last March.
Thcte It wa, held that the owner of a
patent on a mimeograph may compel
the purchaser of the patented mimeo
graph to buy from him. the patentee,
nil paper and Ink that are to be used
on the mimeograph, although of course
the paper and Ink are not covered by
Rrndrni lleclalon la Olck Caae,
'iThe decision to-day refuses to extend
the doctrine of the Dick case to the un
patented product of a patented machine.
The defendants In the bathtub case,
owning patents on machines used In the
manufacture of enamelled ware at
tempted to fix prices and destroy compc
tltlon In commerce In the unpatented
ware. Briefly stated, the court to-day
holds that the monopoly of a patentee
does not Include a control over com
merce 1n the unpatented product of the
"The economic effect of the prosecu
tion by Attorney-General Wlckersham
is Interesting. The combination com
menced operations In June, 1910, At
onco complaints poured In to the Depart
ment of Justice, The Attorney-General
commenced proceedings In July, 1910.
Since the combination was broken up
the prices of the product have fallen
from 15 to 40 per cent,, yet to-day
nearly all the manufacturers engaged In
the business are running their factories
overtime and they are all making money
at the reduced prices prevailing In this
period of competition."
Tho Government made more rapid
progress with the case against the bath
tub case than In other trust suits. The
petition beginning the suit was filed on
July St. 1910, In the Federal court at
Baltimore. The bill named tho Standard
Sanitary Manufacturing Company and!
others as respondents. There were six
toen corporations and thirty-four Indi
viduals Involved an defendants.
Jareeaaeata That Arc Held lllraal.
The agreement under which the bath
tub trust operated were formed In 1909
and 1910. IMwln I,. Wavman. whn Is

I'ntll 1W this woik of enameling

and sifting It by shaking the ee. In
tint year James W. Arrott. Jr., got a
patent on a sieve which could be me
chanically vibrated. The Standard Man
ufacturing Company bought thN patent
and for a long time need It exclusively,
lefuslng to sell or license the right fo
use It to other concerns. Thero were
contiovorslcs over patents of nlmllar
kind and suits for Infringements, In
some of which the Arrott patent was
upheld. It occurred to Wnyinan to so
cure control of the Arrott patent and
two others, the Dlthrldge and I.lndscy
patents, and to license the right Un use
them to all manufacturers of enamelled

p.itenln through options Wiiyinan se
cured slgnaturci from ma lufaeturers
rc.ir'smtlng S3 per cent, of the produc
tion, by which they agreed to the terms
Imposed under the license, together with
i jrlaln trade agreements, which extended
to Jobbers us well. The testimony showed
that 90 per cent. In number of the Job
bers were controlled under these agree
ments and that these represented more
than 90 per cent, of the purchases of the
product. Penalties were provided for vio
lation of the llccnre agreements, by
which the Jobber or roljller might be
refused the right to sell anv of the prod
net. A system of royalties was estab
lished and provision was made that 90
per cent, of the royalties thus collected
would be returned by way of rebates to
such dealers as faithfully observed the
agreement. The condition was Imposed
that defective wares known to the trad?
as "seconds" should not.be void at any
I, teenies Onl I'taalona of Law.
The Government contended that these
licenses for the use of the patent were
simply pretexts to make possible thp
evasion of the Sherman law.
The court j-aid to-iliy that the com
bination of manufacturers thus formed
was not necessary for their protection.
Such protection could have been ob
tained in the view of the court by n
simple sale of the right to use the
"Ilefore the agreements," said Justice
McKenna. "the manufacturers of enam
elled ware were Independent and competi
tive, fly the agreements they were com
bined and subjected themselves to certain
rules and regulations, among others not
to sell their product to the Jobbers ex
cept at n price fixed not by trade and
competitive conditions but by the de
ilslon of a committee of their number,
and zones of sale were created. The
Jobbers were, brought Into the com
bination and made completely subject
to It and they made its purpose suc
cessful. The trade was therefore prac
tically controlled from producer to con
sumer and the potency of the scheme
was established by the cooperation of
5 per rent, of the manufacturers, and
their fidelity to It was secured not only
hy trade advantages but by what was
particularly a pecuniary penalty.
"Itlghts conferred by patent are In
deed very definite and extensive," said
the court, "but they do not give any
more than other rights do, a universal
license against positive prohibitions.
The Sherman law is a limitation of
rights, rights which may be of civil con
sequence and therefore retrained."'

The peclflc cliarge aglnst Worth
was that he caused to be mailed a let
ter sent to the Atnoskeag Farm nnd
Cereal Company of I.ynn. Mass.. In the
name of the American Redemption Com
pany. This letter, which f irms part of
file complaint, shows that previous cor
respondence had passed between the
Rochester comtuny and the Farm and
Cereal company. With It. so said the
letter, went "literature" explaining "our
plan of InveMment protection," The
writer asked that "iu give the same
your careful attention, as the plan. If
a new one to you, will requite con
siderable thought." It alio was sug
gested that "the plan will appeal to
your Judgment, as It lias been approved
by financiers and trust company attor

objecied strongly to having Wednesday

saying that he bad promised to attend
a wedding with Ills wife on that day. So
Commissioner Shields held him In SH.OOfi

Thursday. Former Police Captain
Churchill came to talk with Mr. Worth
and then started to find a bondsman.
I.ate in the afternoon he had not re
turned, so Marshal Ilenkel locked Worth
up In the Tombs for the night.
One of the Inspectors discussing the
general operations of the P.edemptlon
