Oyster Bay. President Roosevelt to
night announced in unmistakable terms
the determination of the administration
to nroceed with the nrosecution of the
Standard Oil case, despite tho decision
adverse to the covernment handed down
by the United States circuit court of

such shape, it possible, as to prevent
technicalities interfering with a decision
based upon tho actual Issues Involved.
The statement In the matter made
public tonight by Secretary Loeb fol

The decision Is a scathing arraign
ment of Judgo Land!, In which It was
asked If tho court bollotrd himself
above the law In Imposing a fine that
would fall on tho shoulders of tho
mother corporation tho Standard Oil
Company of Now Jersey when tho
Indiana corporation alone, under thn
law, could bo held responsible.
It seemed to be tho Irony of fate
that Judge Crosscut should have writ

He not only wrote tho decision but
read the decision to tho waiting

Judges Not Friendly.
Judgo Grosscup and Judge Landls
have not been the best of friends for
eomo tlmo as a result of certain stale .
tnents made months ago by Judge
Land Is concerning federal Judges, who
talk publicly on matters which might
come under their Judicial attention.
Tbo decision said la part:
"Briefly stated, the reason of tho
trial court for imposing this sentence
was because, after conviction and he-
fore sentence It was brought out on
an examination of somo of tho offi
cers and stockholders of the Standard
Oil Company of Now Jersey, that the
capital stock of the Standard Oil Com
pany of Indiana, the defendant before
tho corut, was principally owned by
the ew Jersey corporation, a corpor
ation not before the court the trial
court adding (upon no evidence, how
ever, to bo found In the record, and
upon no Information specifically re
ferred to) that In concessions of the
character for which the defendant be
fore tho court had been Indicted, tried
and convicted, the Now Jersey corpor
ation was not a virgin offender.
Landls Is Scored.
"Is a sentence such as this, based
on reasoning such as that, sound?
Passing over the fact that no word of
ovldcnco or other Information support
In gtho trial court's comment Is to he
found In the record, would the com
ment, If duly proven, Justify u sen
tence such as this one that other
wise would not have been Imposed?
Can a court, without abuso of Judi
cial discretion, wipe out all the prop
erty of tho defendant before the court
and all tho assets to which Us cred
itors look. In an effort to reach and
punish a party that Is not before the
court a patty that has not been con
victed, has not been tried, has not
been Indicted even?
