Srx MOVTHi TO DISSOLVE.
Washington, May 16. The Stan
dard Oil company of New Jersey and
its 19 subsidiary corporations were
declared yesterday by the supreme
court of the United States to be a
conspiracy and combination in re
strain of trade. It also was held to
be monopolizing Interstate commerce
In, violation of the Sherman anti
trust law. The dissolution of the
combination was ordered, to take
place within six months.
Thus ended the tremendous strug-,
gle on the part of the government
to put down by authority of law a
combination which it claimed was a
menace to the Industrial and econo
mic advancement of the entire coun
try. DBC19IOX IS LIMITED.
At the same time the court inter
preted the Sherman anti-trust law
so as to limit Its application to acts
of "undue" restraint of trade and
not "every" restraint of trade.
It was on this point that the only
discordant note was heard in the
court. Justice Harlan dissented,
claiming that cases already decided
by the court had determined once for
all that the word "undue" or "un
reasonable," or similar words, were
not In the statute. He declared that
the reasoning of the court in arriving
at its finding was In effect legisla
tion which belonged In every instance
to congress and not to the courts.
HOTTEST BtTSriTOSS 8AFK.
Ever since the decree In this case
in the lower court the United States
circuit court for the eastern district
of Missouri, was announced, hope
has been expressed by the "business
world" tbrat the law would be modi
fied so a not to interfere with what
was designated as honest business.
Tonight that section of the opinion
calling for the use of the rule of rea
son in applying for the law Is re
garded In many quarters as an an
swer to the prayers of the "business
The opinion of the court was an
nounced by Chief Justice White. In
printed form It contained more than
0,009 words. For nearly an hotir
the chief Justice discussed the ease
from the bench, going over m.st cf
the points in the printed opinion,
but not once referring to It in order
to refresh his memory.
MAJrr HEAR DECISION.
Before him sat a distinguished,
audience of the most famous men
of the country. Senators and repre
sentatives left their respective cham
bers In the capitol to listen to the
epochmaklng decision of the court.
Most eager to hear were Attorney
General Wickersham and Frank B.
Kellogg, special counsel of the gov
ernment, who had conducted the
great fight against the Standard Oil.
None of the brilliant array of coun
sel for the corporations or Individ
ual defendants was present In the
court during the reading of the opin
ion. Yesterday, as on pnevious deci
sion days for months past, rival
broker agents with messengers in
line to the" various telephone and
telegraph instruments throughout
the capitol -were on hand, but to
their dismay the announcement of
the decision was not begun until an
hour after the closing of the stock
NO TOBACCO DECISION.
Many expected that the decision
cf the court in the dissolution suit
against the tobacco -corporation
would be handed down immediately
after the decision in the Standard Oil
case. This was not done, however,
but the decision is expected on May
29, the last decision day of the court
until next October.
The opinion of the court yester
day was construed to mean, that the
tobacco case, like every other case
in which restraints of trade are al
leged, must be subjected to the new
test of reasonableness of the re
straint, as laid down in the Standard
R ll.E OF RRASOX CITED.
'By far the greater portion of the
op'nion of the chief justice was de
voted to the justification of the
court in requiring that the "rule of
reason" be applied to restraints of
trade before they were held to be
violations of the Sherman anti-trust
The court found this justification
in the common law of the forefath
ers and in the general law of the
country at the time the Sherman
anti-trust law was passed. In short,
the court held that the technical
words of the statute were to be given
the meaning which those words had
in the common law and in the law
of the country at the time of the

Appeal Taken by One of the Firms
Involved as Defendant In Bath
Washington, May 16. The gov
ernment'a case against the so-called
bath tub trust , took a twist yester
day which may Involve an interpre
tation of immunity statutes by the
supreme court of the United States
and may possibly hereby affect near
ly every anti-trust prosecution now
The Coldwell Lead company, one
of the defendants In the govern
ment's civil suit, asked the court to
review Judge Rowland's decision in
the United States circuit court in
Philadelphia, that one defendant In
the case when called by another as
a witness could not claim the pro
tection of the Immunity statute. The
department of Justice holds that con
gress intended the immunity stat
utes to protect witnesses testifying
for the government and the Judge so
Department of Justice officials say
that to allow immunity to one de
fendant because he is called as a wit
ness by a co-defendant would prac
tically emasculate the Sherman law.

hibited. REVIEWS PROCEEDINGS.
Chief Justice White in his opin
ion, first reviewed the preliminary
proceedings in the case in the circuit
court of the United States for the
eastern district of Missouri.
He restarted the essential points
in the bill of the government ask
ing for the dissolution of the Stan
dard Oil and the answer questioning
the Jurisdiction of the court, and
denying the claims of the govern
ment. He dismissed the objection
to the Jurisdiction in a few words
by hoi Sing that It was not well
He then came to the arguments
as to the law and the facts in the
case, saying that out of the "jungle"
of law and facts both sides were
agreed only in one thing and that
was that the determinatibn of the
controversy rested upon the proper
construction and application of the
first and second sections of the anti
VIEWS WIDE APART.
The views of the two sides, as to
the law, the chief Justice said, were
as wide apart as the poles. The
same, he said, was true as to the
"Thus on the one hand with re
lentless pertinacity and minuteness
of analysis," said the chief justice,
"it is insisted that the facts estab
lished that the assailed combination
took its birth in a purpose to unlaw
fully acquire wealth by oppressing
the public and destroying the just
rights of others, and that its entire
career exemplifies an inexorable car
rying out of such wrongful intents,
since, It is asserted, the pathway of
the combination from the beginning
of the time of the filing of the bill
is marked with constant proofs of
wrong inflicted upon the public and
is strewn with the wrecks resulting
from crushing out. without regard to
law, the individual rights of others.
CITES MENACE CLAIMS.
"It is asserted that the existence
of the principal corporate defendant,
the Standard Oil company of New
Jersey, with its vast accumulation of j
property, because of its potency for
harm and the dangerous example
which its continued existence af
fords, is an open and enduring men
ace to all freedom of trade and a by
word and reproach to all modern
"On the other hand, in a power
ful analysis of the facts, it is insisted
that thev demonstrate that the
origin and development of the vast
business which the defendants con
trol was but the result of lawful com
petitive methods, guided by economic
genius of the highest order, sustain

CONSIDERS SHERMAN LAW.
In this state of affairs the chief
Justice seized upon the single point
of concord, namely, the application
of the two sections of the Sherman
anti-trust law, as the initial basis of
an examination of the contention.
The rest of his opinion divided it
self into a consideration of the mean
ing of the Sherman anti-trust law in
the light of the common law and the
law of the United States at the time
of Its adoption, the contentions of j
the parties concerning the act and
the scope and effect of the decisions
of the supreme court, the applica
tion of the statute to the facts and,
lastly, the remedy. '
