W. THE LARGEST CREDIT JEWELERS in the WORLD Kansas Ballot .Case, Affect ing Roosevelt Electors, Needs Quick Judgment. Twenty-one coses of major Importance have been set for argument before the Supreme Court when it begins the fall term October 14. The Inter-mountain rate case, the cotton corner case, the suit against tho alleged Bath Tub trust, the Louisville and Nashville rate case, Which Involves the power of tho Com merce Couit to weigh evidence present ed and previously passed upon by the Interstate Commerce Commission, and the embeazTemont caso against AVIlliom E, Brecso and Joseph K. Dlckcrson, of Ashevllle, N. C, aro among those In cluded In the extraordinary docket. To these will probably bo added the Kansas ballot case, Involving the right of the Roosevelt electors to remain on the Republicen ticket In that State, lhe ballots must be printed for tho Novem ber election several days beforo that event. If the Supremo Court Is to say Any thing of practical effect on the, caso Its decision must bo rendered durlrig the latteVvpart of October. The Intermountaln rate case Involves the question of long and short haul rates. To what extent rates from tho Atlantic seaboard to Spokane and other Inland towns may. exceed the rates to the Pacific coast is the qu6stlon pie sented. ' Tho Rath Tub trust case Involves the monopolistic power of patent rights, the suit bringing before the court tho ques tion of whether a company may control tho price of tho finished product through controlling tho use, under license, of a patented tool used In making the article. several rauroaa matters oi extreme Importance will also come before the court. The jurisdiction of tho Inter state Commorco Commission over trans portation property in stock yards, tho right to enforce switching privileges for electric lights, and tho tight of rail roads to limit their liability wll como beforo tho commission. Tho latter case is of particular Interest because some States dcclaro null and void bills of lading seeking to limit tho liability of the common carrier, while In other States there aro express constitutional provisions against a lim itation of this kind.
