inside the room the crowd was quiet.
But, as court adjourned and Mrs. Pat?

Jurors, the crowd overwhelmed her
with congratulations. Her efforts to
reach the Jurors were vain. Loiter
lour of the Jurors called on her as she
was making ready to leave the Jail.

and lAe Jail was packed with a cheer?

He Would Have Judges Ap?

Years Without Privilege
of Second Term?Case
of Too Much Politics.
Washington, November 29.?rcibcrt
H. Oary, executive head of the United
States Steel Corporation, made a idea
for "big business- to-day buforo the
Senate Committee on Interstate Com?
merce, which Is searching for a solu?
tion of the present trust problem In
tho United States.
Big- corporations are essential to
the development of tho country and
the maintenance of business pros?
perity, ho said. To prevent their mis?
using the enormous power that comes
with wealth and control of industrial
agencies, he thought the government
should take control of them, through
a corporation or trade commission
with absolute power to regulate their
affairs. Add to this a clear law as
to what can and what cannot be done;
the strong light of publicity on all
;*!ie affairs of corporations, and the
elimination of presidential and other
political Issues from the business
wprld, and the "unrest" tnat has
spread over the United States will
largely disappear, said Mr. Gary.
Business Already II I star bed.
The coming election Is already dis?
turbing business, he added. He sa'd
members of the courts ought to bo
appointed for life; that tho President
ougiit to bo elected for eight years
without the privilege of ? e-olection, so
.that ,1C would Ibo In a "position and
frame of mind" where he would not be
tempted to "look In any direction or
toward any interests" In seeking re?
Mr. Gory dwelt at length upon the
political situation. He said he had no
particular President In mind; but that
he believed fewer elections and less
reason for seeking public or private
support for political purposes would
aid greatly In keeping business at a
Judge Gary recommended tho Fed?
eral license of corporations, their con
>trol..by a Undo, commission. . the pub?
licity of all their affairs, and- the
sanction of certain acts which the
commission might consider not to be
"restraint of trade."
He declared unrestricted competi?
tion meant the ruin of the small In?
dividual or concern, and the gradual
strengthening of the natural monopoly
of the larger. As opposed to this he
urged thnt the government recognize
the need . of partial agreements be?
tween corporations and Individuals, so
that an actual competition might be )
still maintained that would be fair and
free to all Interests.
"Is there any particular thing now
clearly forbidden by the Sherman law
that you think ought to be permitted?"
asked Senator Cummins.
Cnn'l Define "Ilcstralnt."
Sir. Gary thought not; but he said
the lousiness difficulty lay In deciding
beforehand what amounted to a - "re?
straint of trade." The famous "Gary
dinners," where Steel men gathered to
discuss their affairs, were not to fix
prices, but to disclose their business
condition to each other, ho said.
"Every gentleman there, If he was
a gentleman, could go away with a
full knowledgo of his competitors' af?
fairs, and could shape his business so
as not to ruin his competitor," satd
He added 'that ho had not dared to
hold these conferences lately; that
thoro was no means of knowing exact
lv what constituted a violation of the
"Congress should test tho right of
the Supreme Court to interpret and
virtually make tho laws," said Pro?
fessor John H. Gray, of the Univer?
sity of Minnesota, who followed Mr.
Gary before, the Sennto committee. "Wo
have apparently come to a point whore
the national legislature is nbout to
be abolished. The courts aro inter?
preting the law, and the one who In?
terprets the law is actually tho one
who makes it."
