The t'ourt of Appeals decided yesterday
that the Washington Trading Stamp Com

Tue plaintiffs in error, Gustave Lans
burgh, the merchant and Joseph A.Sperry,
manage! of the company, were convicted
in the police (ourt or conducting a girt
enterprhe and were sentenced to pay a
fine or $100. From the police court the
case was taken directly to the Court or
Appeals, where it was argued lust month.
Attorney A. S. Worthington represented
the plaintirr.t in error, and the District was
represented by Messrs. S. T. Thomas .md
A. D. Duvall. The prosecution maintained
that the scheme was a girt enterprise in
that it puriorted to give eometbjnjj for
nothing, and because of the element of
chance in the proceeding. The main point
or chancn was stated, to iw that the pur
chaser of goods -w onld not collect a number
of the stamps Burficient to entitle him to
the p'emlum promised. The defense main
tained that the gift or the premium was a
simple girt, and that a man had a light
to dispose of his property as ho saw fit.
It was held that there was no chance in
tht transaction, as it depended solely upon
the purchaser whether he would or w nild
not collect the requisite number of stamps.
The decision, written by Justice Shepard.
and concurred In by the other members r
the court, Bttb forth, "that although me of
the- most Hlirewdly planned of the many
df vices to obtain something for nothing, the
trading stamp onterprise could hardly have
come more clearly within the scop-i of the
statute prohibiting gift enterprised, l.nd It
been well known and expressly, stated in
tile contemplation of Congress at the time
of its enuctment."
Tlio opinion continues: "Tlie Washing

that term Is commonly understood. Tli-y
arc not dealers engaged in ordinary -merchandise

000 or more surplus why should there uoc
bean extra dividend? The other favorable
circumstances on the Sugar situation are
the Treasury decision, which is or greater
Important e t.i.iti the street has seemed to
rea'Ue, aud the quieting of much or the
apprehension by theoutsiders that the rival
retineriesare to be powerful and destructive
enemies to the trust. In the Imtnedi.ite
situation also is the fact that the trust
almost invariably puts the stock up ust
prior to the dividend.
How much ot Sugar's strength yester
day was due to manipulation for this
latter motie it is djfficult to say. Ot
course, the extra dividend is an uncer
tainty, as well. The action of tlie di
rectors and th.e action of the stocx aftyr
the declaration ot the dividend -will be
watched with interest by a good ma ly
investors and speculators, big and lit
tle. Within a mouth, extra dividend or
not, Sugar will be probably considerably
hlghet than at present.
The Fiesident'a message has dropped out
of sight in the street, almost entirely, in
spite of tlie satisfaction caused by Its first
reading. There' can belittle doubt that if
Sugar had been-out of the market yester
day, there would have been a reaction.
The message was discounted a week before
it wasoutofriclalh'. The-e was a legitimate
drop ot three point to be expected yes-terdnj-.
One has to figure on Sugar, how
ever. There was. weakness at the close ail
around yesterday but it would be fool
hardy to try prediction until after the

Attention Is o'alle'd to the increase in St.

a good advance in it. I am told by a
man who has studied the condition and
p rdspects of the road carefully. The para

it will be wellTiot to overlook.

Towi Topics says of Chicago- Gas:
'There is good buying of People's Gas,
and the insiders are confident that? because
of tlie steady absorption by outsiders it
can only be a question of a relatively
shott time when It will Ik' Troni 10 to 15
points higher. The f-.ith that some or the
biggest interests have in the property may
be evidenced in the Tact that they will not
sell calls good for six mouths at less than
110, and they are not anxious ubuutdoing
Northwest has declared the regular divi
dends of 13-4. quarterly on the pre
ferred, and 2 1-2 semi-anuually on the
common, payable January 7, 1898.. North
west looks equal to nn advance If ' he gen
eral market should be favorable duriug
the remainder of this month.
Dow, Jones & Co., say of Tobacco:
"There has been excellent buying of
Tobacco stock, for several days, bus.-d upon
tlie increased earnings of the property.
Certain interests have been buyers who
have not bought before in a long time.
It is conservative to say that the plug to
bacco business Is self supporting, no
louger beinrr a drain upon other branches
ot tbe business. The salei of cigarettes
and smoking tobaccos have incrojsed ma
terially in the year, and very decidedly
in the last three months. Dividend action
Is' expected the last week of this month.''
Tobtccn may perhaps be bought for a
turn this week if the market Is advancing,
but tlere are careful students of the con
dition ot tlie company who beliuve Its
present figure too high.
