Supreme Court De cides Against the Merger FOUR JUSTICES DISSENT Holding That the Case Did not Pre sent a Violation of Anti-Trust Law but a Matter' of Ownership, There fore Beyond Federal Jurisdiction. Washington, March 14. In the Unit ed States supreme court today an opin ion was delivered in the merger case of the Northern Securities company against the United States in favor of the government's contention that the merger was illegal. The opinion of the court was handed dawn by Justice Harlan, and it upheld the decree of the circuit court for the district of Minnesota in every particular. Four of the justices dissented from the live constituting a majority. The division in the court was due to a difference of opinion pr:ceeded on the theory that congress has a right under the con stitution to control interstate com merce, no matter by whom conducted, while the minority of the dissenting a uaseu un uie m-.ry inai j of the statute of July 2, ISM, com in the present case the effort is to : mnlliv Un.vn Q Mlo .,.,,, f.t regulate ownership. An effort was made by the curt to i prevent the knowledge of the fact that the opinion was to be rendered today j irom getting to the public bjt ntve: - j theless it was quite generally under- stood among newspaper nun, attor- , neys and others for an hour or so be fore the convening of the court today that the opinion would be announced. ,When, therefore, the members of the court filed into the chamber they were met by an expectant crowd, which filled every seat both inside and out Bide the bar.

This was Justice Brewer, who, while he concurred In the result, announced in an independent opinion of his own that he held the view that previous anti-trust decisions had been mere sweeping than was justified. Pour of the nine justices dissented outright. These were Chief Justice Fuller and Justices White, Peckham and Holmes. The opinions of Justices Harlan and White were long, while these of Justices Brewer and Holmes were comparatively bri3f. All told, the court consumed two hours and three quarters in disposing of the case. The fact was noted by several persons that the argument in the case was be gun on December 14. just thres months previous to the decision. For so im portant a case this is considered a brief interim between the arguments and the decision. The case decided today was brought by the United Stater; against the Northern Securities company, a cor poration of New Jersey; The Great Northern railway, a ccrr.oration of Minnesota; the Northern Pacific rail way, a corporation of Wisconsin; Jan. i J. Hill, a citizen of Minnesota, and W. P. Clough. D. Willis James, John S. Kennedy, J. Pierp.nt Morgan, Itobctt Hacon, Geo. F. Baker and Daniel La mor.t, citizens of New York.

The suit origi nated in the district court.

Power also sought to re strain the Northern Pacific company from retiring its preferred stock, al leging that this is being done in the interest of the alleged merger.

COLORADO STOCK MEN Among Other Thing's, They Jubilate Orcr the Merger Decision. Denver. Colo.-, March 14. The fourth annual convention of the Colorado Cattle and Horse Growers association met here today with 50 delegates in attendance. Governor Peabody, who was to hava welcomed the delegates, sent word that he would be unable to come. George Rallentir.e, a local cattle dealer, delivered the address of wel ccme. President Ccnrad Schaeffer de livered his annual address in which he commented upon the splendid stock laws of Colorado. Speaking of the relations between the railroads and stockmen, President Schaeffer said there was a time when the patronage of stock men was sought by railroads and an effort was made to give good s rvke. That time had passed, however. The stockmen de manded better service and mo-e equit able rates. The report of Secretary Fred John son, which had previously been adopted by the executive committee followed." It showed that the assccia - tion had brought about more good re sults for the-, money expended than could have been obtained in any oth-.-r way. The legislation secured was greatly nfeded. Other needed legisla tion wou'd be striven fcr. The treasurer's report shows the as sociation to be In sound financial con dition.

The principal points in these suggestions are: That actual settlers have first light to the range in the immediate vicinity of their homes, also that existing con ditions governing the use of range for cattle, horses and sheep be changed as littl? as possible. o SUGAR GOES UP.

A CHINESE ASYLUM Created in Ohio by Federal Judge Wing Attorney General Knox Proceeds Against Him to MaKe Kim Qnit Blocking the Exclusion Act. Washington, March 14. In the su preme court today the government cf the United States through Attorney General Knox, applied for a writ of mandamus to compel Judge Francis J. Wing, of the United States .district court of the northern district of Ohio to take what the department cf justice maintains is legal action with certain Chinese exclusion cases. This is the first time in the history of the supreme court that the government has sought a writ of mandamus against a federal judge. In his application Attorney Knox maintains that Judge Wir.g, in holding unconstitutional that part of the Chinese exclusion law which pro vides for the deportation of alien Chi--tiese after a hearing before a United States commissioner, is proceeding contrary to decisions of the Lrnited States supreme court and is preventing the deportation cf Chinese, who are unlawfully in the United States. According to the petition of Attorney General Knox, the proceedings in Judge Wing's court are peculiar. Many Chinese exclusion cases have arisen in the district. Chinese persons said to be in this country unlawfully were taken before United States Commis sioner Simpson and by him were order ed deported. Their counsel went before Judge Wing with proceedings on ap peal, and on the showing made the judge released th?m. Subsequently Judge Wing refused to take the neces sary steps to have the papers filed in the district court, which would enable the government to appeal the cases to the United States supreme court. Tie held that the proceedings before him cn appeal flom the United States com missioner were before him as judge and were not before the district court and none of the papers, therefore, should be filed by the clerk of his court. The result nas been to nullify all the efforts of the government to get the cases b?fire the supieme court. Judge Wing's position effectually blocking all the proceedings in cases after he had passed on them. Attorney General Knox urges in his petition that the supreme ccurt direct Judge Wing to have entered cm the records of the district court all papers in the Chinese cases in riuestion and to treat all appeals made from the commissioner as made to the court and not merely to the judge, thus clearing the way for a direct appeal of the cases in dispute to the supreme court.
