Supreme Court's Decision Stops
Interference With Ameri

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!
Trade Commissi tin was without an
thorlty io enforce its order requir
ing monthly reported of production;
costs from coal mine companies and!
other Industries.
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;
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

Dial Declares People Have at Last Realized That Their
Salvation Is in Their Own Hands, and Denim
Movement Deserves Encouragement.
fHy Associated Preys. 1
WASHINGTON, April 10.?Senator
Dial, Democrat, of South Carolina, j
in xi speech in the Senate today em- j
phatically indorsed the overall ami'
calico movement to combat the high |
cost of clothing.
"We have been encouraged recent
ly l?y reading in the papers that
the people the country over, especial
ly in the South, have rebelled against
the high cost of clothing." ho said,
"and that they are establishing new
overall clubs and calico brigades
"This Is a spirit that should bo
encouraged by everyone, rich or
poor," Senator Dial declared. "I am
delighted to know that the people
are beginning to realize that it is
not the province of the government
to set styles nnd prescribe what
should be worn and eaten. They
begin to realize that their property,
like their salvation, is In their own
"The price of^mcn's clothing has
' ;1
gone all out of proportion. It is
encouraging to see the school and
oollega boys fallings Into line so
readily. The women of this country
are robelling likewise against the
high cost of fabrics they use. They
will look charming, from their grace
ful heads to their dainty f^et. in
any uniform they may select. The
troubles of today nre Inflation, ex
travagance, false pride and Indolence.
"Furthermore, -Mr. President, the
people of the country are long-suf
ferin* but they will not stand for
every outrage. T noticed the other
day where the plumbers of lilrmln-s
ham, Ala., have organized for' J12 a
day. and require to be driven to their
work In automobiles, and will not
allow the drivers to be helpers- This
is autocracy run tnad. They, and
alt such, should l>e looked upon as
public enemies.
"liCt us wear old clothes and re
frain from purchasing everything we
can do without, and the country will
soon get In Joint again."

While America .is exhausting her
j supplies at n prodigal speed, we are
| getting a firmer grip upon the
| world's oil reserves.
| Tor sixty yearn America has run
i through a legacy of Petroleum.
! which, properly conserved, would
last her a century and a half. Amer
icans have misused oil just its they
have misused every other form of
natural wealth.
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.

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

Versailles terms are not lived up to.
this will be followed by a radical re
vision of the whole peace treaty, In
! volvlng liberal concessions to Ger
many. A compromise will bo finally
drafted with regard to tho Huhr

i will be satisfied.
At the end of the first day of Its
deliberations, the council drafted si
reply to President Wilson's recent notQ

tain clauses of which tho President
i had objected. ,

Late this evening It was officially
announced that tho supremo council
had decided to summon tho Turkish
peace delegates to Paris to receive th?
text of the peace treaty on May 10;

Under tho treaty as tentatlrely ftp*
proved by the supremo council, here*
Turkey will looo one-half of hep ln?
Ten million Arabs, Greeks and Ar

Ottoman yoke. Syria, Palestine and
Arabia will be taken from Turkey. ,
J The administration of Armenia, ex?j
