COURT'S DECISION
IS EPOCH-MAKING
Upholds Antitrust Law
in Bathtub Trust
Case.
GOVERNMENT IS
HIGHLY ELATED!
Opinion Recites That There Can |
Be No Monopoly in Unpat
ented Product of Patented
Machine Without Law Vio?
lation, Thus Checkmat?
ing Business Device.
Washington, November 18.?In ?n
epoch-making decision to-day in the
so-called "bathtub trust case." the Su?
preme Court of the United States laid
down the broad principle that there
can be no monopoly in the unoateated
product of a patented machine with?
out violating; the Sherman antitrust
law. Justice McKenna delivered the
unanimous opinion of the court.
In accordance with this doctrine, the
court struck down as illegal the ' license
agreements." by which manufacturers |
of 85 per cent of the sanitary enameled
iron in the Cnited States were bound j
together in combination. The license ?
agreements al.ow the manufacturers to |
use a patented dredger, but only on
condition that they abide by an at?
tached price liat. would not sell to
Jobbers who bought from Independents,
would sell in certain territory and
wo-i.d sell "seconds."
Officials of the Department of Jus?
tice were highly elated over the de?
cision, which. It is claimed, will have
an important bearing upon several in?
vestigations now under way by Attor?
ney -General Wickeraham, aa wen as
antitrust suite already filed agalnat
the so-called "moving picture trust"
and the Cnited Shoe Machinery Com?
pany.
Vitally lespartaat.
The decision is regarded as vitally
Important, because of the govern?
ments claim that the "patent license
agreement" plan waa being adopted by
many concerns, aa a result of the indi?
cia- ban upon the "pure trust" plan, aa
exemplified in the case of the Standard
oil Company, of Ohls; the "holding
company" plan, aa declared invalid is
the Northern Seourit.es oaae, and the
combination of a holding; company and
a manufacturing company, aa shown la
the Standard Oil and Tobacco cases.
Justice McKenna In his opinion de?
clared that the effect of the agreement
waa to convert the in-?ependent and
competitive compantea Into a combi?
nation, subject to rules and regula?
tions
"The trade was practically controlled
from producer to consumer," said be,
"and the potency of the scheme was
established by the co-operation of
85 per cent of the manufacturers, and
their fidelity to It was secured, not
oniy by trade advantages, but by what
waa practically a pecuniary penalty
not aptly termed in the argument
'cash bail.' "
To-day'a decision sustains the de?
cree of the United States District
Court for Maryland, abrogating the
"license agreements." and paves the
way for the retrial of the criminal
suit against the "bathtub trust." The
first trial at Detroit several montns
ago resulted In a disagreement of the
Jury.
Attorney-General Wickerabam post?
poned tbe retrial until the laanea in
the civil suit were decided by the Su?
preme Court.

ON TEMPERANCE
Emphasizes Fact That Church's
Position Toward Liquor Is One
of Uncompromising Warfare.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Lynchburg, Va, November IS.?Tne
order of the day before the Virginia
Conference of the Methodiet Eplsco
I pal Church, South, now tn session in
this city, this evening was the re- j
port of the committee on temperance. |
Rev. J. W. Bledsoe was president pro'
tern of the conference. James Cannon
presented the following report on tem?
perance :
"Your committee is of the opinion
that it is the wisest policy to con?
centrate the thought of our people
upon two or three matters, which are
of vital importance to the temperance
cause at the present time. There is:
a great tendency, when we do not win
a complete victory, to ignore, or at
least to minimize, the results which
are obtained.
"At the last session of the annual
conference we called upon the Anti
Saloon League of Virginia to press the 1
battle independent of facuonal and I
partisan parties to secure State-wide
prohibition for Virginia. The league
instituted and carried on a mos?,
energetic campaign, and placed before
the fjenera! Assemoly of Virginia sucn
an array of facts and such monster pe?
titions that there would be no question
in the minds of any impartial persons
that the people of Virginia demanded [
the right to vote upon the question of j
State-wide prohibition. Tne enabling
act was passed by the House of Dele- I
gates by a vote of two to one, and j
was defeated in the Senate by a vote
of sixteen to twenty-four, although it |
was claimed at that time, and is be
lieved to be without question at the ,
present time, that a majority of the ,
senatorial districts desired their rep- :
rest natives to vote for the enabling 1
act. {
"The vote of the Senate has not ?
changed in anywise the fact that a
majority of the people of Virginia de?
mands the right to vote on State-wide
prohibition, and it certainly should not
change the determination of the tem
peranoe people to secure that right.
Nor should It be considered an lmpos
' siblllty to secure that right before 191s.
! The next General Assembly meets in
i 1914, nnd if the temperance people of
[ the State do their full duty and send I
up a House of Delegates which will '
repeat the action of the House of De.e
gates in 1912, and if the people will
press upon the Senate their de man da
. for concurrent action, it will be difficult
Indeed for the Senate to refuse to con
1 cur with the notion of the House of'
j Delegates coming fresh from the peo
; pie. It is the duty of the hour to re?
assert with all possible emphasis our
! demand that we be given an oppor?
tunity to vote on passage of State?
wide prohibition law."
Bejael Isspaetance.
"A matter of equal importance Is the
passage by Congress of such legisla?
tion as will prevent the shipment ot
intoxicants from wet territory Into dry
territory contrary to the wishes of the
people of the dry territory. After a
long-drawn-out battle we have at last
been able to obtain from the Commit
tee of tbe Judiciary a favorable report.
on the bill providing for such legisla?
tion. The bin has iem placed on the
aalender, and December IS has been -
set as the time for its consideration.
In view of the fact that the bill has
heretofore been smothered In commit?

Supreme Court Denies
Writ of Error to Con?
demned Prisoners.
MAY BE GRANTED
SHORT RESPITE
Give Chance to Prepare for
Death?Not Believed Governor
Will Interfere in Sentence of
Carroll Murderers?Judge
Keith Renders De?
cision.
Finding no merit in tbe appeals ot
Floyd Allen and Claude Swan son Al?
len from the Judgment or tue Circuit
Court of Wythe County, the Supreme
Court of Appeals yesterday demed them
a writ of etror. They must die in the
electric chair for tbe murder of Wil?
liam M. Koaler, late attorney for the
Commonwealth in Carroil County, and
for taking part in tbe oonsp.racy to
murder the officials of the court if an
effort should be made to place Floyd
Allen in Jail.
No opinion was handed down, th? j
court's decision being announced from
the bench by its president. Judge James
Keith. As soon as the tribunal met I
yesterday morning for the day's ses- !
sion, Judge Keitu announced:
"In the case of Floyd Al.en against 1
the Commonwealth, this court finds no
error in the record and nothing preju?
dicial to the defendant in the court |
below, and the judgment of the court I
below is affirmed. In the case of C.audo !
Allen, the same finding is made."
This waa all. Only a few people
were in the court room, mostly at- j
torneys waiting to argue cases.
With these words, the rights,of the'
Aliens in the courts of thla Common?
wealth were exhausted. The appeal I
has been prosecuted and denied, it a v- j
lng nothing more for the courts to do. ;
Respite Seeon* Feasible.
It is believed Governor Mann will !
grant a respite to the condemned men,
because of the fact that on.y four ,
daya were left to them between the
time of action by tbe court and the
moment set for tbeir execution on Fri- .
day of this week. The Governor has'
made no announcement regarding thla.'
but the supposition is he will permit
j delay aa as to 1st the men prepare
for eternity. j
Further than this, it is believed by
those who have talked with the Ex- ?
ecutive, he will not go. He has been
approached by men who desire tbe;
sentences eomnuted to imprisonment
for life, but, so far aa has been beard,
he gave no encouragement whatever,
and, in fact, they say. his attitude indi?
cated that he would not interfere with
the judgment of the courts. |
Shoujd there be a respite, it Is
supposed Mrs. Floyd Allen, wife of the
elder and mother of the younger pria- j
oner, will come to Richmond to say i
.'arewell until eternity.
Governor Getag Over Cases. j
Soon after the Supreme Court re- I
fused the writs of error asked for, the
Governor sent to the office of Clark
H. Stewart Jones and secured the peti- ;
tions and records In the two cases,
which be began to examine. He bad .
already gone over much of the testi- 1
mony. giving it his c.osest attention, j
He will have a statement for the pub- j
iio within a few days?perhaps by to
morrow or Thursday.
Not only Is tbe Executive going into ]
tbe case In detail, but the same thing ]
waa done by the Supreme Court. That '
body had given daily consideration to '
tha petition and record since the court j
met last Tuesday, indicating Its earn- j
est effort to closely examine ail the ,
legal points raised by tbe attorneys for ;
the defense.
Many petitions for commutation are !
ready for presentation to Governor
Mann. He has already received many
letters from people who desire to see
mercy exercised. For the most part, j

Allen, on trial here for the murder ot
Judge Thornton L? Mansie, to-day took
the witness stand in his own defense,
outlining his movements from the time
of the tragedy until he was captured
in Des Moines. He spoke clearly and
without embarrassment until he waa
asked if he had intended leaving his
wife and children. Then the rugged
mountaineer broke down and wept. He
denied that such waa his intention,
and stated that they wer'- after him
with b.oodhounds and with instructions
to shoot on sight, and that he Intended
keeping out of the way until things
Quieted down, when he would have re- j
