Harmon of Ohio.
These reports of a developing sen

frequently. These denials were re

and at the department of justice. It
Is stated that the president's trust
policy already Is In operation, and that
the only development following cur

It is expected that the president will
recommend the enactment of legisla

known as the "seven slst'-rs," passed
by the New Jersey legislature in the
last months of his governorship.
The trust policy bring carried out by
Attorney General Molteynolds con
sists of dissolution suits as under
previous administrations, with im

particularly vicious violations of the
law. The administration expects to
set a new record in the dissolution of
monopolies, but whether it will insti

formerly remains to be determined.
