Wickerehani to-day declared he Is
convinced more than ever that each
case must be settled upon' its owj>
merits, and that tho Oil and Tolneco
cases cannot fairly be cullod *inl>dels"
for Solving the trust question.
Mr. Wickereham was asked to-day If
hi hoped to see business returned to
the conditions of competition which,
prevailed bet?re the first trusts came*
into existence;
"1 do not." ho replied. "1 cannot, be
cause I do not tliink.lt possible. We
cannot return to our swaddling clothes, j
We must readjust to a new set of con?
ditions entirely."
"Do you think that can be done
within the present laws, without fur- !
thcr upsicttins business?" he was1
"1 hope so," replied the Attorney-,
General, "but I do not know."
"It ought to be made 'cleat'.", con
tlnued Mr. Wlckersham. "that there is
110 conflict in trie Steel case between !
ihe Department of Justice nnd the
stunley committee of the House of
Representatives, which has been lnves- i
ttgating tho Steel Corporation. That
committee has been conducting Its in- I
veStlgation to determine what legis- |
la 11 on may be desirable to moot the
economic question raised by trusts and
combinations: the suit died by the De?
partment of Justice is a legal pro-;
ccodlng to compel tho observance of
the law."
When the Attorney-General was
asked If he hoped the Steel Corpora
tton would volunteer to readjust its
organisation, und avoid further prose- :
cutlon of the suit, as has been done j
by the lnternutionjl Harvester Com- |
jssny. the Electrical trust, the South?
ern Grocers trust and some other com?
binations, he Indicated that he- ex
peeled ino such conciliatory move on I
the part of the Steel Corporation.
Department of Justice officials think]
it will be a tight to the finish. Mr.
Wickereham declined to my If he lsj

in the case.
Official Washington la Mill wonder-1
lng how the preparations for the tiling'
of the bill was conducted with such
successful secrecy. The- bill was not
set In type In the Government Printing
Office, as such petitions usually arc.
but was printed out by the private
concern that prints the decisions of the
Supreme Court.
II was intimated at the Department
of Justice to-day that the government
considers its case practically complete.
Special agents who have worked for
the past two years or mote still are.
