VIOLATES ANTI-TRUST LAW Interlocutory Decree Fixes October 16 as Date for Hearing Dis solution Proceedings. WILMINGTON. Del.. June 22.-The T'nited States circuit court for the dis trict of Delaware yesterday handed down a decision declaring that the alleged powder trust which is dominated by the E. I. du Point de Nemours Company, is a combination in restraint of interstate commerce in powder and other explo sives, In violation of section I of the Sherman anti-trust law; that it attempt ed to monopolize and has monopolized a part of such commerce in violation of section 2 of the same law, and decreeing that the combination shall be enjoined j from continuing this violation, and that j it shall be dissolved. The action against the powder trust was begun by the government in 1H07, and was directed against forty-three cor porate and individual defendants. The suit as to fifteen of the defendants was dismissed because some of the concerns are out of existence, or it was not shown that they were parties to the combina tion. The court in an Interlocutory decree fixeJ October l<> as the date to hear both Mldes In the action as to the nature of the injunction to be granted, and consider ;i "plan for dissolving said combination, which shall he submitted by the petition er and the defendants or any of them, to the end that this court may ascertain and determine upon a plan or method for such dissolution which will not deprive the defendants of the opportunity to re create out of the elements now compos ing said combination a new condition which shall be honestly In harmony with and not repugnant to the law." Follows Other Trust Decrees. This follows to some extent the decrees issued by the I'nited States Supreme Court In the Standard Oil and Tobacco cases. The only member of the du Font family mentioned in the suit who is not In cluded among those found to be violating the law is Henry A. du Pont. I'nited States senator from Delaware. The court found that in June. ti>Ort, a year before the suit was begun, "he resigned all his official positions In the defendant cor porations and that since that time he has had neither real nor nominal con nection with the management of any of the defendant corporations." The court summarizes the numerous companies controlled by ?he du Pont company organized in and the du Pont Company organized in and then discusses whether the combination i- found to exist was obnoxious to the provisions of the anti-trust act. The court says: "As enacted it (the Sherman anti-trust law> does not con demn every combination "to prevent com petition.' What it condemns is every combination in restraint of trade or com merce among the several states." etc. Freedom of Interstate Commerce. "The recent decisions of the Supreme Court in Standard Oil Company vb. United States, and American Tobacco Company vs. United States, make it quite clear that the language of the anti-trust act is not 10 receive that literal construction which will impair rather than enhance freedom of interstate commerce. .\s we read those decisions, restraint of inter state trade and restraint of competition in interstate trade are not interchangeable expressions. "There may be, under the anti-trust act, restraint of competition that does not amount to restraint of interstate trade. Just as before the passage of the act there might have been restraint of competition that did not amount to a common law re straint of trade." The court then comes to this conclusion: "It matters not whether the combina tion be in the form of a trade association or a corporation. If it arbitrarily uses its power to force weaker competitors out of business or to coerce them into a sale or union with combination, it puts a re straint upon Interstate commerce and monopolizes or attempts to monopolize a part of that commerce in a sense that vio lates the anti-trust act." "To stop the business of the combina tion immediately might be attended with very disastrous consequences.
