ICE COMPANY GUILTY
AND INEO SMAll SUM
Monopoly One of the ret Enter
prises of Banker Charles
W Morse
New York Dec IOThe American
Ice company was found guilty today
in the supreme court of restricting com
petition in and attempting to create
a monopoly of the sale of ice The
jury was out one hour and forty min
utes and when the foreman announced
the verdict the court immediately im
posed the maximum sentence of 5000
fine under provisions of the Donnelly
antimonopoly law of this state
The conviction is the first under the
new law and will probably be fought
to the highest court in the state
The significance of the verdict lies
not so much In the relatively trivial
amount of the fine imposed as in the
intimations made by John B Stanch
field of counsel for the defense that
a finding against the company which
he said supplies 8000000 customers
would mark the first step In its ulti
mate dissolution
The American Ice company though
tried under the laws of New York
was incorporated under the laws of
New Jersey for 140000000 and later
taken over by the American Ice Securi
ties company of the same state after
a drastic reorganization
The company has plants in New
York Washington Baltimore and Phil
adelohia and has absorbed many
smaller companies along the Hudson
river and In the Maine Ice fields
Before Wesley II Oler was elected
president of the company Charles W
Morse convicted banker was active
