Sherman Law and
Asserts That There Is Ample
Evidence of Well Defined
Chicago, May 12. Demurrers
of the Chicago packers thu

today by Judge Carpenter in the fed
eral district court. In the ruling Car
penter declared the Sherman anti-trust
law, which had been attacked by the
packers, is constitutions!. He also held
the indictment charging J. Ogden Ar
mour and other packers with violating
its provisions is valid.
HAS RROAD REARING.
Carpenter's decision may have an
indirect bearing on all anti-trust
litigation In the United States, in up
holding the completeness and stabil
ity of the Sherman act. Of this
feature the court said:
"The statute has been the sub
ject of decisions for 20 years. The
supreme court of the United Stare
many times has sustained derrees
which restrained violations of it."
The packers had based their de
murrers in part on the assertion that
the act did not define crime, or pro
vide a legal and constitutional
means of correcting the abuses it
was designed to control. The deci
sion directly denied this assump
tion. CLEARLY SHOWS CONSPIRACY.
