FREE TRADE FROM GRIP OF CONGRESS: 1 | Supreme Court's Decision Stops Interference With Ameri can Business. KILLS PENALTY OF $100 Justice Bailey Declares Com mission Has No Power to Exact Fine. [Ilv A*IIOO!(lted I'M-** ] WASHINGTON. A,i?ril 1 !?.?The Su preme Court of the District of Co-1 lumbia ruled today that the Kedera!

In Krantlng tiie application of t>i Maynar.l Coal Company, of Kentucky! and Ohio, ifor an injunction to rf--' strain thi commission from proced-i ing t^ collect a penalty of ilOO a dviy for every d-ay of failure f> report. Justice Bailey declared that the powers the commission sought, were "%'ast and unprecedented " and heyond the province of Congress to; convey. The court's decision affects virtual ly every mining and manufacturing company in the country. It wa?? said tonight hy corporation lawyers. The I order calling for reports was issued by the commission in .January. Justice Bailey held that if the business of the conecrn from which 1 production cost reports were de manded was entirely in interstate commerce, tho commission's claim of authority might be valid, but that in the Maynard case Ihe commission obviously was demanding informa tion from a company whose business was both intra anil interstate. "The vlsitoriul power of Congress Is limited to that part of the busi ness over which it has control and which.--urder the Constitution, it has power to regulate," tne decision said. "In order for the commission to have the power to require reports as to mining of coal and Intrastate shipments, it would have to prove that such Information Is necessary to or connected with Home subject over which the general government s power- The comni'?ion lias not ? power to exact the reports and ? orrnation sought." J. s>. Foster, general counsel for the Nntlonal Coal Ass.jr/.atlon. de clared in a statement that the deci sion was far reaching. "If the contention of the commis sion had been sustained," Mr. Ko'ter said, "it would necessarily have fol lowed that the commission had the right to require not only such de tailed reports of costs of production from coal operators, but from a!', j iganufncturing and commercial con cerns which ship any portion of the i products or articles in which they j deal in Interstate commerce, and j would force nil such companies to j report in detail ev< ry item of cost ; and profit, as well as their financial j condition." 1 BUSH TERMINAL IS SAVED BY SUPREME FIGHT OF FIREMEN l lrr Aboard Slrnmrr tit I'lcr Threat . i-n< IJurk With KxiiIokIodh, NEW YORK .April 18.?Hush Ter- j minal, in Brooklyn, one of the larg- | est steamship terminals in the world, j was saved by firemen from destruc-i tion today when a spectacular tire j virtually destroyed the.

Improvidence, carelessness and a blind gambling spirit, have marked all, except the most recent phases of the American oil industry, and wrought an Incalculable und Ir I retrievable loss. More oil probably has run to waste i:i the rnited Stntes. than has j reached tlio refineries. I The magnitude of t..e crisis is j shown by the fact that r<.niu:yIvanla j oil is yelling at $;..7.'? a barrel, and I in expected to reach $10 a barrel i before the end of the year, white gasoline must soon reach 10 cents in the Eastern cities. America, before 1?21, will find her self 100,000,000 gallons* short. l.'nln-s the leading oil concerns of the country raise $200,000,000 the current year's production will de crease 10 per cent, while the con sumption Is increasing at the rate of 25 per cent. .... Transport is another crucial point. In the next few years the governing factor in the oil position will be not the amount produced but the num ber of available tankers. Men like Doheny and Bedford understand the position, and are diligently scouring the world for new oil fields, but wherever they have turned they found British enterprise before them, and the control of the most pronns ? itig properties in British hands. | in Mexico alone, American oil In I tcrests have acquired a strong posi | li..n. but even there we hold the ? winnin-; cards. ? , Aside from Mexico it Is a cn?o of I Britain tirst. thf rest nowhere.
