TTT ASHINGTON. March B.—Tho
Standard Oil company today
standard oil company today
" ' filed in the supreme court ef the
United States its brief in opposition
to the attempt of the government to
dissolve It as violating the Sherman
anti-trust law. This comes as a pre
lude to oral argument of the case by
attorneys for the defense and for the
government. The brief is the work of
John M. Freeman, Ernest C. Irwln and
0. T. Watson. The government brief
lias not yet been filed. -
The keynote of the defense is the
so-called preservation of "the right* of
individual citizens of the United
States." , .',.,
The issue, according: to this brier, is
the charge made in the petition, de
nied in the answer and reasserted In
the replication, that the seven indi
vidual defendants, John D. Rockefeller,
William Rockefeller, John D. Archbold,
Oliver H. Payne, Honry M. Flakier,
Charles M. Pratt and Henry H. Rog
ers, combined and conspired, and con
tinued to combine and conspire at the
i time the petition was Bled to restrain
Interstate trade in oil in order to gain
a monopoly of it.
Changed Methods Only
Point after point is made by counsel
In an attempt to prove the seven in
dividual defendants did nothing more
than change their method of business
"Seven men controlling, for 5000
people, seventy parcels of property de
voted to private business enterprise
and for which the 5000 hold trust cer
tificates of trustees, in 1893 determine
that thereafter the 5000 shall hold stock
certificates of the New Jersey Stand
ard Oil company for the same prop
erties in the same proportions and
with the same power and management.
"Neither the 6000 owners nor the
seven managers gained any new power
or property or changed their status or
smothered competition by the change,
but they did gain, as they think, an
easier and more economic method of
holding and managing the properties.
They did not intend to, nor did they,
manage the properties after 1899, ex
cept as they managed them before,
and they had no idea of restricting
competition between their Jointly, held
properties, because there was none to
The opinion of the circuit court that
some of the companies In the organ
ization of 1899 "were potentially and
naturally competitive" and that their
competition was prevented by this or
ganization of 1899 Is attacked. ,
"We submit," says the brief, "that
the idea of the competition between
properties all owned by the same per
sons is a novelty. The idea that prop
erties themselves compete and that, if
one man owns two or more he must
compete with himself, is startling.
Competition between joint owners is
The ownership of properties, it is
contended In the brief, is wholly under
the laws of the state, and congress
cannot and does not pretend to regu
late their acquisition.
Yet, it is urged by counsel for the
Standard Oil company that this rule
of the circuit court would broaden the
Sherman act so that federal law would
regulate land titles in the state,
The objections to the decree are
summed up In the statements that It
is too general, too vague, too broad.
"It denies to each Individual the
right of holding his property as he
chooses," say counsel, "either by legal
or equitable title."
TEXAS OIL CO. MUST PAY

TRENTON, N. J., March The su

many hours to remove the wreckage.
Ambulances from the various hos
pitals in I.os Angeles were summoned",
but before their arrival the greater
number of injured were placed aboard
a Pasadena cur. which had just passed
the fatal crossing ahead of the wrecked
Conductor Pellett and Moforman
Williams were sent to Pasadena, A
view of the wrecked car showed that
the motorman had a miraculous es
cape from death, as the front end was
literally smashed to bits from the con
tact with the telegraph poles.
Brakeman Escapes Injury
One of the most remarkable escapes
from death was that of i;. W. Wright,
rear brakeman on the lumber train.
He was on top of the rear car with a
lantern in his hand when the crash
came. Ho was thrown nearly thirty
feet over the Ali.so street bridge .into
the river bed below, and escaped with
a slight abrasion of the left leg.
Wright asserted he held a light in his
hand and was given the signal by the
crossing watchman to proceed, as the
track was clear. He stated he . real
ized too late a collision was inevitable
and shouted to the motorman to stop
his car. but the shouts were not heard.
The freight train was in charge of
Joseph Wickersham, 3426 Dayton ave
nue, and his first work after the crash
was to care for the Injured.
In speaking of the accident lie said:
"It was remarkable that the passen
gers on the electric were not killed
outright. I cannot yet place the blame
for the accident, but I am thankful
that it did not result more disas
Crossing Man Benwa said: "There
were no lights on the rear end of the
freight and I did not see the train ap
proaching. As I thought the track was
clear I gave the signal for the electric
car to go ahead. The noise of the other
cars prevented my hearing the backing
freight and it was but a second or two
after the Pasadena tar started to cross
the tracks that the collision happened.
The electric had nearly cleared the
crossings, and was struck in the rear
and tossed fifteen feet. T expected to
see all the passengers killed."
Say Light Was Displayed
The railroad officials deny there were
no rear lights on the train and an im
mediate investigation will be made to
determine the cause of the accident.
It was necessary to transfer pas
sengers to Pasadena and other east
bound points last night, as the lines
were completely blocked by the wreck
Miss Mary Smith, one of the injured,
was able to discuss the accident, at
the receiving hospital last night. She
said: "1 heard the conductor give or
ders to so ahead and a few seconds
later there was an awful noise and
we were all piled on top of each other,
with broken glass and wreckage in
every direction. The excitement was
intense, for we thought we had been
tossed over the bridge when the car
landed on its side."
Conductor Pellet* lives at 7uj Frp.uk-
Hn avenue, Pasadena, and Motorman
Williams at 288 Cypress avenue, Pasa
dena. Most of the Injured were per
sons of wealth and tourists who were
passing the winter in the down city.
Motorman Williams' Statement
"My conductor signaled me to go
ahead. I did not see or hear the train
until my car WCJ half way across the
track. It was then that a sharp toot
from thii engine startled me and I saw
the train was within a few feet of tho
car. 1 threw on full power. The car
leaped ahead and it was only this that

FORAKER SAYS MEASURE IS
Ohioan Champions Plea of Big Firms
That They Cannot Understand
What Provision Demands
WASHINGTON, March B.—Attacks
on the constitutionality of the orpor
atlon tax law loomed Into prominence
when brief after brief in opposi

court of the United States. Final ar

tion |s set for next week.
Prominent among these briefs "as
one of former Senator Foraker of Ohio,
solicitor for Louis W. .tared, a stock
holder in the. American Multlgraph
company of Cleveland, Ohio, who seeks
to have the company enjoined from
paying tin' tax on the ground that it
is unconstitutional. Senator Foraker
says the "Indeliniteness of the lan
guage employed" in the corporation
tax provision of the Fayne-Aldrlcn
tariff law makes It difficult to ascer
tain just what the tax is. *
The debate in the senate, over the
provisions, he suggests, warrants the
claim that the "ambiguous character
of the provision" is due to an eslort
to bring it within the court's jurisdic
tion, and he contends that the thing
taxed must he one of these:

He saya it is clear that the fram
ers intended to provide a corporation
income tax without laying It on the
income, and he adds, "equally clear
that they did not succeed."
According to the natural meaning
of the language employed there is
some, excuse for tho claim that the
tfta is laid upon the corporation itself,
says the senator in discussing that
classification of the tax.
"If the tax be on the corporation as
such," he adds, "because of the ad
vantages supposed to attach to cor
porate organisations for business pur
poses, it should be the same fur all cor
porations of the same capital and the
same class, but it is not the same and
cannot bo the same for all. unless the
impossible result of equal incomes
from all sources has been realized."
An emphatic attack is made on the
publicity features of the provisions),
"The provision not only Is in viola
tion of the guarantee against unrea
sonable search and seizure," said the
tor, "but it is also in violation of
all that sense of Justice and all that
spirit of liberty and freedom of action

SCORED BY HEYBURN
Senator Declares Idaho Constabulary
Will Be Used, if Necessary,
to Protect Forestry
WASHINGTON, March B.—Horcafter
Idaho will brook no opposition from
the forestry service of the t'nited
States on school sections within the
forest reservations of that state. Sen
ator Heyburn made this announcement
while tin! agricultural appropriation
was under discussion in the senate to-
He was speaking of the right of the
government to include the school sec
tions« in its supervision of reservation
areas, and in this connection Mr.
Smoot raised the point that the na
tional authority was supreme, if the
land had not been surveyed.
Mr. Smoot said that even when the
forestry service had cut timber on the
unsurveyed sections, it had turned over
to the state 25 per cent of the proceeds.
"That," responded Mr. Heyburn,
"sounds like a chapter from the life
of Dick Turpln, who, when he found
his victims stranded by his depreda
tions, would give them enough of their
own money to buy breakfast."
He said the recent administration of
the forestry reservations had been ut
terly regardless of law.
".And let it he understood," he thun
dered, "that from this time on, Idaho
proposes to administer its own lands.
The authorities have been instructed
of their competency in this respect,
and they will protect their interests. If
they are disturbed by the foresters
they will invoke, the aid of the state

KANSAS CITY, March B.—Fear that
complications may develop in tho in
juries of Jere F. Lillis, president of the
Western Kxchange bank, whom John
P. Cudaliy, the packer, assaulted Sun
day morning in tho Cudaliy home,
caused physicians to forbid his re
moval to his home today. Lillis is at
.St. Mary's hospital and may be there
The development that Dr. lamuel
Ayres, who is attending the injured
banker, most fears, is blood poisoning.
The knife which Mr. Cudahy used on
his victim, it iy said to have been an
old, rusty blade. Tonight there seems
small danger of blood poisoning, but
every precaution will bo taken to pre
vent such a deveiopment.
Lillis is still unable to talk, as hia
lips were badly battered.
Nurses at the hospital say he has
not spoken since his arrival. As tho
knife did not touch any vital part of
Lillis' body, he probably will bo out
in a few days.
The definite announcement that Lil
lis will not prefer a formal charge
against Cudahy renders doubtful tho
probability that any further details of
the circumstances that led up to tho
trouble will ever be made public. Both
Cudahy und Lillis .still firmly refuse
to make a statement In regard to tho
The county prosecutor has announced
he will make no effort to prosecute
Cudahy if no one files a formal charm
against him, unless Lillis should dio
from his injuries. The physicians say
the banker will surely recover.
John Moss, the chauffeur, who was
present when tho attack on Lillis was
made, has not been traced, although
the police have made a diligent search
John C. Cowin of Omaha, father of
Mrs. Cudaliy. went out to the Cudahy
home from his hotel early today.
