Industrial Exposition Is Scene of
Animation and VisItors Find
Much of Interest
Greater Salt Lakes Pure Food Industrial exposition opened its doors
to the public atthe Auditorium on Richards street yesterday afternoon at
1 oclock and the interest in the fair and its merit was best attested in
the throngs that entered and lingered through the aisles and around the
display booths from the opening of the doors until after the closing time
11 1 1 oclock
That the fair even though not alto
gether unique In Its character Is yet one
ot the best and greatest displays of what
must be termed everyday food prod
ucts and especially ot home Industries Is
manifest on almost the first glimpse ot
the Interior ot the hal
Although the formal and official open
Ing ot the exposition scheduled for 130
ociock was necessarily postponed until
730 In the evening owing to the Inability
ot Mayor John S Bransford to be pres
ent until that time the crowds were not
deterred from satisfying their curiosity
during the afternoon
The exercises set for the afternoon were
carried out n the evening when Man
ager A A Tremp introduced Mayor
Bransford to the visitors In a brief ad
dress the mayor extolled the benefits ot
such an exhibition as was afforded the
people calling attention to the hOle prod
uots on rnspmay ana welcommg tne elUlt
era exhibitors as worthy competitors
The fair Itself and especially In the
night view Is a scene ot splendor with I i
Its brilliant lighting effects artistic
booths and tastefully arranged exhibits
of aU that Is tempting to the palate
Of course there are numerous exhibits of
the utility order but In their way they
bear their relation to the procuring or the
preparation of the food
Visitors Surprised
Entering the main doorway the visitor
Is almost at a loss In determining which
way to turn On both sides and in front
there Is the attractive array and to pick
out the special object of attraction Is to
rely a good deal on the flip ot the coin
or the individual taste
As If by chosen chance however one
of the most Interesting displays In the
entire exposition Is placed near the en
trancethe exhibit under the direction of

Standard Oil Company Has No
Present Intention of Seeking
an Amendment to the Sher
man AntiTrust Law
Improbable That a Foreign
Holding Company Will Be
Organized Owing to Com
plexity of State Control
New York Nov 23The Stnndnrd Oil
company announced authoritatively to
day that It had no Intention ot seeking
an amendment to the Sherman antitrust
law but will proceed with the appeal to
the United States supreme court from
the decree of the United States circuit
court at St Paul Until the supreme
court has rendered a decision the com
pany will consider no other plan of doing
business than the methods now In use
Mortimer F Elliott genera solicitor of
the company Is authority for the fore
going He discussed the case with a rep
resentative of the Associated Press after
a conference with William Rockefeller
and John D Archbold
Awaiting Final Decision
There Is to be nD effort on the part
of the company to procure an amendment
to the Sherman antitrust law saId Mr
Elliott We shall await the verdict ot
the supreme court before we take any
steps looking either toward reorganiza
tion or a new statement of our case to
the public The court has first rights
It seems highly Improbable to me that
there will ever be a foreign holding com
pany organized as you tell me has been
suggested The complexity ot contra ex
ercised by the several states sets too
many difficulties In the way
Such comment on the case as I have
Seen misses the fact that the Standard
Oil company Is not a holding company
nure and simple as was the Northern Se
curities company For Instance It owns
outright at Bayonne N J the largest
refinery In the world There Is nothing
In the decree to prevent the company
from continuing to do business although
I admit that It makes doing business more
Individuals Can Act
Although the decree enjoins the Stan
dard on company from voting Its share
holdings In subsidiary companies or re
cehlng dividends from them there Is no
reason why the Individual holders among
whom such shares would be divided un
der the decree should not elect their own
officers Ip the sUbsidiary companies and
rq etvl thQlr own dividends from those
eOIJ1pattl i A l1r x Byatem among our
5000 shareholders would certainly be no
more unmanageable than the same SS
tem as now used by railroad and Indus
trial companies with say 60000 share
In brief there Is no cause for the mar
ket to fear a forced liquidation ot the
securities the Standard on company now
holds I disagree with the gentlemen who
think their distribution Is necessary oth
er than of the sort I outlined In my first
CircuIt Courts Order
Mr Elliott In that statement said he
understood the court to order that Stan
dard Oil company holdings In subsidiary
companies be apportioned among Stan
dard on company share owners In ratio
to their holdings In the parent company
An executive officer ot the company
aId today that no alarm was felt over
the possibility ot criminal prosecution un
der Section II ot the Sherman antitrust
act should the present decree In equity
be upheld In the supreme court
