That the Government still stands a
Rood chance of defeating the United
Shoe Machinery Company In the con

leases, In spite, of the decision of the
Supreme Court yesterday. Is the view

The -decision yesterday did not de
termine the question of the validity
of the entire indictment 'of the Gov
ernment, but only two of the Ave
counts. The question of validity of
the leases was not touched on. Neither
was the Indictment as a whole.
District Attorney French has given
oot a statement at Boston In which he
says the question the Supreme Court
has decided is merely one of criminal
pleading. He says further:
'The Brett and important Issue .be- ;
tween the people of the Uni:ed States
and of the United Shoe Machinery Com

monopoly in violation of the Sherman
act, and this depends largely, if not
wholly, upon the view which the courts
will ultimately take regarding the tying

"Incidentally, the court has sustained
the Government In a very Important

be the validity of the leasing system 1
