Washington, Oct. 11.—Because of
the failure to have a full bench in
the supreme court of the United
States, a general readjustment of im
portant cases was made today.
It was the first business day of
the eight months' term. The Stand

under the Sherman anti-trust law were
postponed for rehearing from Novem

tax cases were set for argument on
January 3, as were the cases involv

to be imposed on violators of the
twenty-eight hour law and the inter

The importance of the questions
involved also led the court to post

dead and rescue any one who may
possibly be alive.
