What the 'Anti-Trust
Decision Means To
Patrons of te
, , photoplay.
One of thoie curious legal situ,
tlons, where 'the stable door .is
locked, not only after the horse has
been stolen, but after the stable
Itself has been carted away and
nothing but tho door remains. Is re
flected In the recent decision of the
1'ederal court In Philadelphia against
me so-caned motion picture trust.
The old motion picture trust ceased
to be a menace to anything but the
trust lUeir a year or two ago, and
the arguments that caused the or
, der of dissolution to bo signed have
been dead, so far as any effect they
might have on motion picture mak
ing and exhibiting generally Is con

because of the many Inquiries that
have been made regarding the effect
of the decision and because of the
interest that was manl rested In the
trust for a long time by picture pa-
J?.nf,..1.t-.ml5ht ted that the
trust itself haa had little or no ef
IfJ..?!? 'h exhibition of pictures
since the beginning of feature photo-
Play productlon-although the bet-
!'. .cia,s ot manufacturers in the
j. i J1' tta brettklng away from
the tenets that made the trust pos
sible for a longer time than that.
hi?. Jn?u b.glnnln Jt appeared ns
though the trust was supremo In the
motion picture Held. It was called
the Motion Picture Pinni i'm.
Pany, and was the joint owner of the
l-.dlson, Armat. and other American
patents regarded as Important In pic
ture making.
It attempted to form a monopoly
of the motion picture business In this
country and the General Film Com
pany wan organised by the so-called
licensed manufacturers those oper
atln under permission of the Mo
tion Picture Patents Company for
tho purpose of serving exhibitors.
Iron-clad rules were adopted and the
General Film Corporation was made
the distributer of nims and the en
forcer of rules. Tho first step was
the formation of the General Film
program of releases exhibitors were
compelled to take aeneral Film pro
grams aa a whole or get nothing.
The idea was to keep the control of
the picture business In a very close
corporation of interests.
The very compactness of the or
ganization was Its own defeat. The
foreign makers .if motion picture
machine which did not infringe any
of the Motion Picture Patents Com
pany's patents supplied the so
called unlicensed, or "independent,"
manufacturers with their machines
and their material. The trust at
tempted to control these factors by
taking In the Kalom company, gen
eially credited as a subsidiary of tho
Eastman Camra Works, which
manufactures most of the film used
In this country, and the Pathe com
pany, the French concern which
manufactured n non-Infringing csm
era and projecting machine. But
this did not work, as there
vi ere other supplies for film and ma
chine which made possible the
building up of the Mutual and Unl
vrrsal services with programs that
r.tre offered as "Independent" of
the trust. Each of these concerns
was really as much of a manufac
turer's trust as the General and each
turned out pictures that compared In
eery way with the average of Gen
eral Film output and hit the Gen
eral 1 11m program a cry hard
Then It was that the organizers of
the trust who were earnestly work
ing tn nrvke good pictures saw their
error. There vero some of the sub
sidiary companies that were not so
Inspired nnd turned out cheap pic
tures, which the program rulea
made the exhibitors accept. J.
Rtuart niackton, the president of the
Vltagrnph company nnd one of the
big factors ik the Motion Picture
1'atenta Cnmpsny, told the photo
play editor of The Times only a few
weeks ago that the greatest evil

Times has opposed every since It
was established.
Then came the establishment of
the feature photoplay companies
with their elaborate productions that
were sold to whoever wanted them
on a State's rights basis that Is,
some person In each State purchas
ing the exclusive control for his
.State. There were no rules and
regulations binding the people who
controlled States' rights to feature
, films, and so exhibitor on the black
list of either the trust or the two
Independent factions could get all
the feature films he wanted Then
the big feature companies, like the
Famous Players, the Oaumont,
Georgo Klelne, Itala. and other com
panies established their own chain
of offices, and the Film trust became
an extremely dead Issue.
For tho past year and a half,
therefore, the trust that was so sol
emnly condemned In Philadelphia
last week, has ceased to be a vital
factor In motion pictures or to have
anything like a monopoly on the
business. It exists today In name
and on paper only, and the rules
and regulations by which It trans
gressed the Sherman anti-trust law
are effective actually only among
those who know no better. Tho
trust has reall). for some time past,
been only an enemy to tho best of
the manufacturers who were mem
bers of It through their contract
agreements to mipport the concerns
that did not and arc not now putting
out pictures up to tho best stand
ards. To those patrons of the film, there
fore, who have expressed anxiety
ns to the effect of the anti-trust de
cision. It may be said the decision,
really means better films. If It means
an) thing at all. because film manu
facturers who have been hampered
by the old conditions In the trust
can now go ahead with plans for
Improvement without the dead
weight of tho ineftlcients hanging
about their corporative necks

What to Eit and
Prevent Indigestion
Indigestion and practically all forms of
stomach trouble are, nine times out of
leu, due to acidity, therefore stomach
sufferers should, wheneter possible.
avoid eating food that Is acid In Its
nature, or which by chemical action
In the stomach develops acidity. Those
sufferers who have been obliged to ex
elude from their diet all starchy, sweet
or fatty food and are trying to keep up
a miserable existence on gluten prod
ucts, should try a meal of any toou or
foods In moderate amount, taking Im
mediately afterwards a teaspoontul of
blsurated magnesia In a little hot or
cold water. This will neutralize any acid
which may beprecnt, or which may bo
formed, and Instead of the usual feeling
of uneasiness and fullness, ou will find
that your food agrees with you perfect,
ly. Illsurated magnesia Is doubtless the
best corrective and antacid known. It
haa direct action on the stomach, but
by neutralizing, the acidity of tho food
contents, nnd thus removing the source
of the acid Irritation which Inflames the
dollcate stomach lining, It does more
than could be possibly done bv any
drug or medicine Do not dose an In
flamed and Irritated stomach with
drugs, but get rid of the acid the cause
of nil the trouble. Get a little blsurated
magnesia from your druggist, cat what
you want at our next meal, take some
of ihc illsurated magnesia ns dliected
above, and note remarkable results.
