The In ternational Harvester case, the fore most of all the government's anti-trust prosecutions, now in the supreme court j will be re-opened for a new argument at the fall term beginning in October. Neither the government nor the com pany has asked for a rehearing, the court's action was a complete surprise to the attorneys of both sides and was announced without explanation. From precedent and practice, it is inferred in some quarters the court I stands very cloese on the case and de sires a rcargument for its own bene fit: or that in view of the prime im portance of the case to the interpreta tion 01" the Sherman law in new lights, a reargument was ordered in the hope f getting a unanimous decision. That was the situation in the Standard Mil litigation. Although It was assumed the court stood very close on that case, there was only one dissent.

The case, which is regarded of first Importance, particularly in vie,jv of its similarity to the steel case, which the government recently lost in the lower courts, cannot now be decided before fall, or probably the winter months. The de ision has anxiously been await--d by business and financial circles for months. -Attorney General Gregory is known to have expressed the view recently that the usefulness of the Sherman law in the future regulation of business de pends largely upon the attitude of the supreme court in the Harvester case. Pending the decision, it was said to night, the department of justice prob- j ably will not institute any important! anti-trust cases. The government's policy in the steel trust" case has been announced and Gregory, in conformity with his an nouncement, will make the customary appeal from the decision of the lower courts.

The suit was instituted by the gov ernment in conformity with a resolu tion by congress. It dealt only with lands unsold. It appeared in the evi dence that some of the land sold in P. 0"lil acre tracts for as much as $7..ii an acre. . Today s decision pre served any right the government may have to bring a suit touching the land already sold. 1 he court found that congress in making the grant made no positive provisions as to settlement. Con sideration is also given the argument of the railroad that larce portions of the proiwrty could not be sold to a.-tual settlers, because the land was not capable of settlement. It was pointed out further that much of the land is more valuable for timber than for settlement and would thus be a source of seculation.
