It is merely a reaffirmation of what

Special to the -Journal-Mlnsr.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.-Anotkar
step in the government suit ngalaai
the Standard Oil Company of Indlaaa
went on record today, when the coa-
sel for tho government applies to the
supreme court for a writ of certiorari,
inns nnnging tho famous rebato eaaa
before the highest trlbunnl. ThU la
ho case In which tho court of appeal
reversed Judgo Landis' lino of $29.-
210,000 ugninst tho corporation.
Tho government in its petition for
a writ of certiorari advances as Ha
prnlclpal prayer tho Importance of am
ntcrpretntion by tho supreme court of
the United States of certain claueee
of the railroad rate law. It is pointed
out that severnl sections of the Klklai
law nro np aufllcieiitly explicit In view
of conflicting court decisions and that
the court of last resort should for the
icncflt of nil concerned tnke jurisdic
tion of tho caso and give a construc
tion wnleh will eli final and blndiag
upon nil inferior courts.
The ofllclnls of tho Department ot
lustice who are most closely idnntiled
with the Standard Oil suit hnve found
pon uu examination of the prsee
ents that the supreme court refuse
n grunt writs of certiorari in easea-
ecided by United States circuit coart
f appeal unless questions nt issue la-
volvo tho interpretation or tho eoaetU
utlonaltty of the law, Tho govera-
ment contends that under the rate li
ng provision of the Klkins act, which
lays an important part In tno Htaad-
ard Oil case, one circuit court of ap
peals may placo one construction upon
it, and nnother court In another elr
cult n conflicting construction, and that
It Is possible that nine different coa-
structions may come from the nine
circuits. The complications that eonld
rlso have bcn used for their full ef
fect in tho petition of the government,
nd tho officials of the department of
ust Ico are confident that the court
will grant tho request for a construe-
Ion of the law.
