CAUSE OF RELIGIOUS RIOTS IN INDIA The trouble between the Hindoo* and the Mohametans in Calcutta, India, and its neighborhood arose from the police order that, in deference to Hindoo feeling, forbade Mohametans to sacrifice cows, animals sacred to the Hindoo, and led to a good deal of dangerous rioting in which the "Din Din" of the fron? tier fanatic was heard. Our illustration shows one of the sacred cows of In dia in a street in Calcutta. The cow is held in such reverence that wherever it chooses to rest, there it is allowed to stay, although it may be stoppino the whole of the traffic.

The deepest interest is apparent as to the eonfirence between Assistant Secretary Wilsen. Senor Calvo. miu ister from Costa Kica. and l>r. Herrat. minister ftoni Guateuiala. It is ?*> lieved that the infraction of the ex? ist ing Pan American treaty signed here a little over two years ago was the ebb : matter discussed. The violation of the agreement was committi d by Gen. Toledo, in com? mand ol President Zelaya's lorees. when he invaded Costa Kiean terri? tory in his advance on Greytown. where practically he is now besieged. In the threatened trouble between Nicaiagua and Vein ztiela. only a short time ago, the Vnited Btites stood ready to prevent, by force, if nec-ssary. the paseagc of the bel? ligerents across the neutral territory of Honduras. This is pointed to by diplomats to? night as indicative of the gravity of Gen. Toledo's offense- agalnet the Pan American compact. Preparing for Final Struggle. That the revolutionists, under Gen. Chammerro are making preparations fcr the final decisive struggle within the next three or four days, was an? nounced tonight by Sencr Castrillo, reprerentative here of the Nicaraguan provisional government. Sentr Castrillo pointed out that with the cra.?t line in |iossession of his comt at riots, the securing of am? munition and arms now Is a ?impfe matter of only a few days. In the meantime, he says. Gen. Chammerro holds the Zelayan forces at his mercy. At the time cf the closing of the state dopa-rtment this afternoon, no word, according to Secretary Knox. had been received from the neat of the trouble. Warships Probably There. The warships Des Moines and Vicksburg. which were ordered to take up their stations on tbe Atlantic and Pacific sides of the isthmus, are believed to have reached their desti? nations, although tin work from their commanders was received The de partment was informed today that Leonard Grace, who is believed to have been executed with bemv Can? non by order of President Zelaya. was a native of Hempstead Texas, where his family is said now to re? side.

ST. PAI L, MINN., Nov 19? Judge Wait ft Sanborn in the Cnlted Slates Circuit Court of Appeals today hand? ed down an opinion setting aside the verdict and ordering a new trial in tbe ease of the United States against the Union Pacific Coal Company, the Union Pacific Railway, the otegan Short Une, James hL Moore and' Everett Buckingham, charging them with violation of fhe Sherman anti trust law by forming an unlawful com? bination. Wh'le the suit was brought in the name of the I'm ted states, proceed? ings were started by Mr. Sharp, a Salt Lake City coal, dealer, who charged the ccal company and tbe de? fendant railways with refusing to sell and haul coal for him because be' advertised and seid at a lower fig? ure than his competitors. No Substantial Evidence. Judge Sanborn holds there was no substuip.il evidence of any combi? nation between any two of the de? fendants, either to refuse to sell real to Sharp or to refuse to transport it for him. The lower court found the defend? ants guilty and imposed a fine of Jl.ooo and costs on Moore and $3,000 and costs on the other defendants. The syllabus of Judge Sanborn's opinion says that under the Sherman law a "combination, the necessary effect o.' which is to stifle or direct? ly and substantially ha restrict." eom iwtifion in interstate commerce Is un? lawful, but if the necessary effect of a combination is but incidental^ nnd indirectly to restrict competition while its chief result is to foster the trade and increase the business of those who make and operate it, it does not fall under the ban of the law."
