r ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
WASHINGTON. June 21. 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.
'lose observers of the court's pro
cedure and the government's anti
trust proceedings point out too. that a
rdiirynmunt nf the MarVAStpr suit m;iv
rJ.ri ,.f ,k. !
questions involved which were not
raised in trust cases heretofore, be
cause many of them come within the
purview- of the recently enacted trade
commission and Clayton trust laws.
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.

not capable of settlement. It was
pointed out further that much of the

ATLANTA, June 21. With several
hundred men and boys clamoring
to get in the front gates of hit
country home, which had been barri
caded with barbed wire entangle
ments and threatening to overpower
twenty country policemen, armed
with riot guns, Governor Slaton
called out the militia late tonight
for protection. Upon the arrival of
four companies, which had been held
under arms and rushed in state au
tomobiles, the governor proclaimed
martial law in a district extending
half a mile in front, half a mile
back, and about a qurter of a mile
on either side.
When the soldiers lined up with ,
fixed bayonets to dispose of the
crowd, stones, brisks
and bottles
were thrown ot them.. Several sol
diers were injured.. It is also re

state prison is located and where
Frank was taken that trouble is
feared there, but no request has
been made for troops.
In the melee in front of the gov
ernors home a brick struck Lieut,

him unconscious for a short time.
A bottle struck the gun of Private
Foope, and cut his hand.. The com
manding officer. Major Catron, was
struck by a etone as were several
men.
The governor proclaimed martial
law at eleven o'clock tonight, and
fy midniciht the crowd had virtually
dispersed.. There was no firing.
The governor said no troops would
be sent to M iddledgeville until re
quested by the sheriff. The governor
was surrounded at his home by about
a dozen friends," nearly all armed with
a rifle or a pistol. The unexpected
arrival of a member of his family in
a dark corner of the front porch
caused the governor himself to has
tily pick up a large pistol.

here, however, insisted the general had

that he had assured them that Cabrera
would remain in his cahinet.
Of particular interest to Washington
officials was the announcement from
Ijomlon of a warning issued by Sir Kd
ward Grey, secretary of foreign affairs,
to British subjects against visiting
Mexico unless absolutely obliged to do
so. Such warnings have repeatedly
been given by the United Stales to
American citizens.
