government in their brief. "It means n
monopoly acquired by such methods of
competition as this. Unless It Is en?
forced, the small corporation or Indi?
vidual who wishes to engage In busi?
ness will have absolutely no oppor?
tunity at all. This testimony is valu?
able, as showing the intention of the
s-t.indurd Oil Company to monopolize \
i'is commerce In oil throughout the
United State?. In many districts it has
fin absolute monopoly. \\> mean by

i lull- Independent Huslness.
"Practically this is the ??use through- j
on' the Rocky Mountain country, ami
most of the Pacific coast States. Tlie
percentage of independent business!
throughout the entire Southern States I
is very small.
".Moreover, where there is competl- I
tion. the competitors are usually strict- j
ly under the control of the Standard. I
in ih.u they must. In order to be al- j
lowed to ,)o business, sell oll al practl- I
? ill' the price the Standard dictates,}
and confine themselves to n small per-!
hinge of the trade."
Combinations effected by purchase,
nee >rding t" the contention of the gov?
ernment; are hut as much within the
law as combinations effected by trust ,
agreement* or pooling. I
licpiylnfe to these accusations ant? j
conclusions, counsel for the Standard
Mill arg tic 'hat the Sherman law does'
net prohibit the method of holding .
property by stock ownership.
All methods r.ro lawful." Mr. Wat- j
???in wi.l atguv. ' it n->t used to restrict
It "i or c.iin an unlawful monopoly.':
? The Sherman act has' no application j
t.i the transfer to or tin- acquisition
by the Standard Oil Company of stockst
t'f the various manufacturing and pro- I
ihnlnc corporations." It I--' argued inj
the brief of Messrs Johnson a-id Mil-!
burn, "for the reason that such trans- I
lei and acquisition were not nets of!
int.-state of foreign commerce nor dl- ,
reel and Immediate in'their effect on
int? t state or foreign commerce, nor;
within jitc powi r of Congress to reg
. tllatc Interstate or foreign commerce. '
Following out this line of argument,
they will urge ih'at purchase or acqui?
sition of property is not in any sense.,
mtract. conspiracy ,>r combination j
In restraint of trade.
The attorneys for the Standard will '.
unite in itgulng that there was no!
suppression of competition in the or- j
ganlzullou of IS!''.'.
Instead of grawth by unfair cbmpe- i
tition, ripening into a monopoly, it will
lit. argued for the Standard that it was j

Councilman John T. Powers was In
the Polier Court yesterday morning
charged with violation of the BulldluK
Code In falling to cut foundation
trenchos to a sufficient depth for cer?
tain houses In course of erection on

dence was conflicting, and after some
time had been consumed Police Jus?
tice Crulchtlcld postponed the whole
matter until this morning, and bag
meanwhile requested City Engineer
Boiling to measure the trenches In

Justice Crutchtleld took occasion to.
make somo characteristic remarks from
the bench In regard to Councilman who
first make laws nnd then break them
Mr. Powers objected to being "bawl* 1
out" by tho magistrate, but Jus tic
Crutchtleld maintained his position,
saying that It was his business t.. see
that oven Councllmen live within tin
The question soon came down t.
one of fact?whether th. trench had
been cut eighteen inches below the
natural surface of the ground us tho
law requires. W. J. Ready and I,. <\
Jenkins, called as experts in construc?
tion work, disagreed as to the actual
depth. All parties were Instructed to
remeasure the depth of tho trenches,
allowing for loose earth piled about
the foundations, and report to tho
