TR THE DAILY MISSOULIAN ARIC VOL. XXXVIII. NO. 120. MISSOULA, MONTANA, MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 11, 1911. PRICE FIVE CEN SHERMAN LAWI HAS LIGHT COMING APPLICATION OF ANTI-TRUST C MEASURE TO BE GIVEN BY SUPREME COURT. FUOLER INTERPRETATION C "Hard Coal Case" the "Cotton Corner G Case," and the "St. Louis Bridge Case" Will Give Highest Tribunal in Land Ample Opportunity to Im press idea as to Ordinance. Washington, Sept. 10.-More light on the application of the Sherman J anti-trust law to the business of the d day is expected from the supreme r court of the United States shortly 8 after the opening of its session next t month. Several anti-trust cases ad- a vanced for consideration by the tri- t bunal are being relied on to give the court greater opportunity than that at forded in the recent Standard Oil and a tobacco decisions to interpret the law c and to impress upon the country how c the court proposes the law should be f enforced. o It is planned by the court in the , first month of its session to hear argu- a ments in the so-called "hard coal ) case," the "cotton corner case," and u the "St. Louis bridge case." Pos sibly later in the session the court may consider the so-called turpentine trust case. Knotty Problems. All involve knotty problems grow ing out of attempts of the govern ment to punish alleged violations of the Sherman law. With the excep tion of the so-called "turpentine case," the government has been defeated in the lower courts and has appealed to the supreme court to uphold its in terpretation of the law. The "hard coal case" constitutes a governmental attack on the principal ahthraclte coal carrying railroads and coal owning companies in Pennsyl vania. It Is claimed that since 1895 these companies have been parties to a combination and conspiracy to end competition among themselves In the transportation and sale of anthracite coal and to prevent the sale of the independent output in competition with their own. Besides this alleged general conspiracy, a number of little conspiracles not only forming part of the general conspiracy, but occupying I an independent existence have been i charged by the government. Nothing like the "cotton corner" has t ever been before the supreme court, it is said." The government will ask the court to overrule the action of the United States circuit court for southern New York in striking out an indictment against James A. Patten, Eugene G. Scales, Frank B. Hayne and William P. Brown on three counts. These counts charge in substance that these men conspired to monopolise the in terstate trade and commerce in avail able cotton *by acquiring enough of that commodity on the New York ex change to give the alleged conspira tors power to fix arbitrary and exces sive prices. In the "St. Louis bridge case" the government claims that the agree ments whereby the Terminal Railroad association of St. Louis acquired the ownership and control and operates the "Eads bridge," and the I'Mer chants" bridge," across the Misllssippi ilver, violate the Sherman law. .The United States circuit court of eastern Missouri dismissed them. The so-called "turpentine trust case", involves the validity of the in dictment and conviction of head offi clals of the American Naval Stores company on 'charges of having vlo iated the Sherman law. Class Ad History CVI.-A LONG QUEST. Sometimes the class ad is given a severe test. It often happens that the task set for the ad is one which requires the locating of one man in ten thousand. Here is a job which it took 34 days to finish, but it was finished: .,..' FOR RENT-FURNISHED HOUSES FOUR-ROOM FURNISHED HOUSIZ, $81 .Mast Front. The house was visited by a good many prospective tenants but it was not until the 34th day that the man was found who wanted just that house. He finally came. That is the main point. The ad did its work eventually. If your ad does not hit the mark the first time, try again. The cost is only one cent a word, so you ca, afford to continue the campaign till it wins. if you'reout of work and want a job, The Missoulian will print. your adfor nothing, KR UTTSCH N ITT ULTIMATUM. IS IT ON REFUSAL OF RAILROAD MAG NATE TO RECOGNIZE MENL HINGES STRIKE. " CRAFIS IN CONFERENCE General Advisory Committees of Five Employee' Organizations Conolude a Five-Days' Meeting and Spokesman Kline Says That Concessions Must Be Made and Explains Demands. .an Francisco, Sept. 10.-Unless Julius Kruttschnitt, vice preeldent and director of maintenance of the Har riman lines, recedes from his absolute refusal to recdgnize the Federation of Shop Workers or its committees on those lines, he will he confronted with a strike. No reason for believing that he will recede has been found by labor leaders. General advisory committees of the five international shop craft unions Swhich are comprised In the federation concluded here today a three days' conference with the International of ficers of those unions. The general officers were entrusted, with . full charge of the situation henceforth, and International President J. W. Kline, of the blacksmiths and helpers' union, their appointed spakesman, said that the general officers had made up their minds what they would do. Conoessions. "Mr. Kruttschpitt will have to make concessions," he said tonight, "or the public, for which he has expressed so great regard, probably will suffer be cause he does not." "Will 'the general Officers ask for another, conference with 'Mr. Krttt* schnitt?" was asked. "That Is not hi our present plans," he replied. "'WVe are going -to Los Angeles tonight and may find some way of approaching the subject again. but none has occurred to us so far. "Recognition of a federation of unions involves no principle that is not included in recognition to Indl vidual unions, already conceded by the Harriman lines and no principles not already utilised in the formation of the Harriman system itself. It is our right and we shall insist upon It." Jail, If Necessary. f Asked concerning the prospect that r the federal statutes against combina R tions in restraint of trade may be in voked against officers of the Inter s national unions, he said: t "When we took office we took il responsibilities of the office, If these 't Include going to jail, we will go to i jail." v Pair warning, Mr. Kllpo said, will t be given to the liarriman officials In I. dase a strike is called. a From Lol Angeles Mr. Kline will go e to Salt Lake and east to Chicago, e stopping, perhaps, at Omaha. Other international oýficers will cover the - southern routes of the Southern Pa f cific railroad, meeting the men at railway centers en route. - GERMAN AVIATOR KILLED. e Esllingen, Wartemburg, Sept. 10. d The aviator Ralmond r""-!.r was killed tonight while making a flight r at the aerodrome.

COLUMBIA VERY WORST I New York Institution's Students Are I Fiercest of the Fierce, out Harvard, Princeton, Cornell and Yale Have Bad Lot of BoozeFPighters-Result of Investigation is Surprising. Chicago Sept. 10.-R. T. c(rnne, mil lionaire Iron manufacturer, mad, pub Ilc today an arraignment of the big universities of the country. He charges alarming prevalence of drink ing and gaming among the students. Columbia he ranks the worst, but con dltions at Harvard, Princeton and r'ornell he declares are almost as bad. Of the students at Harvard, 90 per cent drink in their freshman year; 95 per cent in their senior year, and 15 per cent of them go irrevocably to the bad, according to the report of an In vestigation which Mr. Crane had made. Mr. Crane has spent much time and money investigating the results of higher or college education. So bit ter is he in consequence that he de clares colleges do more .arm than good. Mr. Crane says in his report: Much Boozing. "An outsider can scarcely realise the amount of drinking that goes on in the clubrooms of the colleges. Re ferring particularly to Harvard. I es timate the number of students who combine in a mild degree wine and bad women 85 per cent; who drink heav ily, 85 per cent, and who have two or three 'bats' a year also 46 per cent. I do not doubt that even worse states of affairs exist in other colleges. At Princeton, it is beer, beer, beer. The body of students, in my mind, drink even more than Harvard men. On one occasion I believe there must have I been more than 800 students dead drunk. "At Yale drinking is recognised in so great a degree that clubs have their tables at the barrooms. I was never so shocked in my life as when I found New Haven the dissolute, de bauched and whisky town that it is. fSome time ago the statement ap peared in a New Haven paper that there were 2,000 fallen women In that city. "At Cornell the conditions are some ehat the same, although I believe Cor nell students do not carry their ex V cesses so far as do those at Princeton. a Yale and Cambridge. The Cornell f boys are great on beer, as are also the men at Princeton. Columbia Worst. a "At Columbia, I believe, there exists I more debauchery than at any other college, on account of its proximity to the famous resorts of the city. If ' further proof he necessary, let me quote from a letter received from E. e C. Mercer, who is special secretary of the Association of Colleges of North s America. and who is following this e matter up for the association, which it shows that it has taken upon itself y the work of reforming college men. He ,r is delivering a lecture entitled 'College - Men I Have Met in the Slums and Prisons of New York.' He says: 'r "'I did say, and I have written proof ti to back me up, that I have met per sonally and have heard from the most reliable authorities of sonicme 1,200 col lege bred men in the slums, prisons, Jails and sanitariums who were down and out through fast living. The noted bread line in our city has con V stantly in it ctlege bred men. " Mr. Crane's report, ahich is printed In the current number of Valve World, owned by Mr. Crane, describes un sparingly student disipation and is a remorseless Indictment of not only the I universitles, but of the municipal go\' ernments that permit such conditions. NOTHING TO IT. Boston, 8 t. 10.-Fears to the. health of Miss Clara Barton, founder of thl American Red Cross society. who has 'been ill at her summer home t at Oxford, are not well founded, ac cording to a statement issued here today by her nephew, Stephen F..

BOTHCLAIMINB RECIPROCITTY VICTORY CANADA NEARS END OF CAM PAIGN, WITH LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES ASSURED. DOMINION IS INTERESTED Leading Speakers of Both Parties Are Heard by Unusually Large Audi enoes and This Is Taken as Indiesa tion That People Are Taking Sides Actively-Eleotion in Ten Days. Ottawa, (tnt.. Sept.. 10.-The Cana. dlan election campaign has now been In full awing for a month. An army of orator, has been busy throughout the country and large quantities of lit erature have been distributed. Tody the leaders of each party claim the victory. "Victory Is In the air," declared Premier Laurler at a meeting in Lon don, Ont., Priday last. 'Premier Laurier has been through Ontario, Quebec and the maritime provinces speaking daily to unpar alleled audiences. This week he goes I to the district around Quebec City to finish the campaign. Borden Confident. "I am confident that on September 21 the electors of Canada will cast thur votes against the ratification of reciproclty," declared Opposition Load er Borden at Charlottetown, on tri iay. Mr. Borden has spoken at the principal centers of Canada and has had large and enthusiastlc audiences. All the leading speakers of both parties have attracted unusually large audiences. The alse of the gatherings r in the midst of harvesting season is taken as evidence that Canatlians are thoroughly interested in the question Sof reciprocity. Government carnpaigners are seMngl to keep the financial aspect of reel proclty to the front and their ast palgn has been directed prlgctpaily I toward educating the Canadian farmer and fishermen to the great mutual i benefit which is claimed they will get from free access to the American market. The liberals have scouted as I absurd the contention of conservatives that reciprocity will lead Ca.ada away from England to the United States., Coneervative Arguments. The conservative campaigners have largely confined themselves to the sentimental side. The British flag, tl! maintenance of British connection ur weakened and protests against qloser relations with the United States, form the basis of conservative speeches to sday. President Taft, Champ Clark, J. J. Hill and others are quoted daily from conservative platforms to show that annexation 9f Canada is the ul terior motive of the American people in agreeing to reciprocity. The government had a 'majority of 45 members when parliament was dis solved. The belief of many is that each side will come back from the polls with about the same following as at present. There is little betting, but a few wagers have been made that the gov ernment will return with 20 majority. No odds are being quoted for the de feat of the government. Both parties appear to be amply provided with elec tlon money, but there is no evidence of the possession of either party of a big corruption fund. Liberals Claim West. Winnipeg. Man., Sept. 10.-With polling day on the reciprocity isse ronly 10 days oft, the liberals now claim an easy victory In the wet. In view of the many conservatives who have announced their Intention to sup port the Laurler government, Premier t Roblin of Manitoba declared last week that conservatives who conscientlously Sittend to vote for reciprocity will not in so doing he voting against their party princrlples. Premier Robliu has Iborne the brunt of the anti-reciprcitty canmpaign since it opened. Those opposed to the pact have rcon fined themselves to showing that on dtier reclprocity Canada will lose her independence, her loyalty to Oroat Britain will be weakened and annera, lon to the United States will he en. e couraged. Canada, they claim, will be the dumping ground of the United States' natural products in season that are disastrous to home-grown prod uctu, The liberals ridicule the theory that e Canada will absorb United Stateg ideals of government through her e growth In trade In that country. 's The market growers still ofter s d united front to reciprocity and it is o claimed the Canadian Pa.Itle railroad a through its forImer solicitor Is active in opposition to the government.
