Telephone 13 or 32 WANT ADS BRING RESULTS THIRTY-FIRST YEAR WICKERSHAM TELLS OF HIS BATTLE CREEK, Mich., July 7.—?i%nnr»r*m«P flf trTl Attorney General Wickersham spoke 1 1 0 1 I O VilLU before the Michigan State Bai• asso- I AM elation yesterday and discussed the su- I I preme court's recent interpretation of anti-trust law in the Sherman _the Standard Oil and Tobacco cases. He gave his unqualified endorsement to the court's application of the so called "rule of reason." "Those who have thoughtlessly yielded to the superficial conclusion resulting from the application by the chief pustice of the rule of reason to the interpretation of the Sherman law," he said, "can find little to Jus tify the idea that the Sherman law has been made ineffective by those two decisions, for precisely the con trary is established by these two great judgments. "The most cursory examination or the decree in the tobacco case—the most casual consideration of the dras tic and far-reaching remedy imposed —makes it perfectly apparent that the Sherman law, perhaps for the first time, has been demonstrated to be an actual, effective weapon to the accom plishment of the purpose for which it was primarily enacted, namely, the destruction of the great combinations familiarly known as trusts." "Size alone does not constitute mo nopoly. The attainment of a domi nant position in a business acquired by the result of honest enterprise and normal methods of business develop ment is not a violation of the law. But unfair methods of trade, by de stroying and excludisg competitors by means of intercorporate stock hold ings, or by means of agreements be tween actual or potential competitors, whereby the control of commerce along the states or with foreign coun tries in any particular line of industry is secured or threatened, expose those who are concerned in such efforts to the penalties prescribed in he second section of the act, because they are engaged in monopolizing or attempt ing to monopolize such commerce. "It is also now settled that no form of jcorporate organization, merger, or consolidation, no species of transfer of title, whether by sale, conveyance or mortgage and no lapse of time from the date of the original contract, con spiracy or combination can bar a fed eral court of equity from terminating an unlawful restraint, or compelling the disintegration of a monopolistic combination." Mr. Wickersham "uoted from Gov ernor Woodrow Wilson's work, "The State," the following it is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the English race, whose political habit has been trans mitted to us through the sagacious generation by whom this government was erected, that they have never felt themselves bound by the logic of laws, but only by a practical under standing of them based upon slow pre cedent. Fcr this race the law under which they live is at any particular time what it is then understood to be, and this understanding of it is com pounded of the circumstance of the time. Absolute theories of legal con sequence they have never cared to fol low out to their conclusions. Their laws have always been used as parts of the practical running machinery of their politics, parts to be fitted from time to time by interpretation to exist ing opinion and social conditions. "If this law," the attorney general said in conclusion, "is designed to protect the people of t' is country from the evils of monopoly and to preserve the liberty of the individual to trade freely, it shall now be clearly under stood if its true purpose shall be recognized and its beneficient conse quences realized, the twenty years of slowly developed interpretation and FIFTEEN HUNDRED MEN WORKING TO GET BUILDING READY (Special to the Tribune) WINNIPEG, Man., July 7.—The ex hibition grandstand was razed to the ground in a spectacular fire last night.

FOR URGE SUM Devils Lake Firm Made De- fendant ID Suit for $12,266 ~™,..(tStcW,??, ^r* £rib¥n?y DEVIL LAKE N D. Jul f.-Pa-)Id pers were served today in an interest ing damage suit, tihat of W. H. Moyer against A. H. Bell and the Minneapolis Drug company, in which the plaintiff asks $12,266 damages for injuries which he claims he sustained as a re sult of an explosion of a chemical which was sold him at the Bell drug store in the city, the Bell drug store having purchased the adulterated com bustible chemical from the Minne apolis Drug company. Mr. Moyer was touring the country and was at Warwick at the time the accident occurred. He generated his own gas and purchased black oxide of magnesia which he mixed with chlorate of potash for this purpose. The chemical he purchased exploded, wrecking the machine and greatly damaging the building at Warwick, leaving Moyer with his left leg broken as well as being punctured about the body, losing the toe on his right foot and suffering a severe scalp wound. The damages asked for are for in juries, hospital bill and general dam ages to the machine. The case will be tried at the November term of the district court in Devils Lake. 'A. H.

PRIZES OFFERED IN FLY-KILLING (Special to the Tribune) SAN ANTONIO, Tex., July 7 When one of the big newspapers of this city offered a prize for the boy killing the most flies by the third of July, the author of the idea, Mr. Tom Brown, a leading business man of the city, had no notion of the size of the undertaking he had inaugurated. On the third of July the boys were in structed to bring their flies to the Daily Express office and have them counted. In the vernacular of the times, the boys were "there with the goods." Flies were brought in by the sack full, in paper boxes, in paper bags, and a few brought the result of their hunt in express wagons. Count ing the catch was out of the ques tion. The only means of determining who had won was by measuring. That the fly pest, which is said to be re sponsible in all parts of the coun- materially lessened in San Antonio is true, and it is most interesting to note the various methods employed by the boys to capture the insects. That the boys of San Antonio have been busy "swatting the fly" for the past three weeks is very much in evidence and this novel anti-fly campaign has started a similar movement in many other cities and towns, in addition to teaching the necessity for careful san itation and that it is easier to prevent disease than to cure it.
