Of Leading Manufactured Goods.
Washington, Dec. 31. Attorney
General Wlckorsham and his special

Of 2C8 printed pages, disclosed tho
lino of attack which will be mado on

tors and affiliated corporations, and
nooks "to prevent and restrain" mo
nopolies and restraints of commerce
In tobacco and related commodities

What Government Contends.
Tho government contends that t o
trust has acquired much of tho load
ffig brands of manufactured tobacco
and absolutely controls their distribu
tion. Tho products of Its business
aro sold through an army of repre
sentatives operating throughout the
country who report to a central office,
which is kept advised of conditions
la every locality.
Ton million dollars was expended
to advertising and distributing free
goods by tho trust In 1900. "Through
covenants many ownrrs and man
agers of successful concerns have
been retired from tho trado, and pos
ulblo competition from them," says
tho brief. "Tho defendants have
persistently exorcised duress, have
practiced wicked and unfair methods
and used their great power In oppres
alvo ways; and they havo been actu
ated by tho purpose to destroy com
petition and obtain monopoly. Com
petitors havo gradually disappeared
and tho combination, now strongly
entrenched, unduly restricted the
business of those In the trado and
provonta others from entering."
