Decision Handed Down in
United States Supreme
Case in Question Was That of the
Waters-Pierce Oil Company, In
volving Its Bight to Do
Business in Texas.
WASHINGTON. March 19.— 1n tho
I'nited States Supreme Court to-day an
opinion was handed down In the case of
the Waters-Pierce Oil Company, Involv
ing Its right to do business in the State
of Texas, contrary to the provisions of the
State anti-trust laws of ISS9 and 1896.
It was charged, among other things,
that the Waters-Pierce Company waa a
member of the Standard Oil trust as or
ganized in ISS2. and various other allega
tions were made, but tho court did not
enter upon a general discussion of the
trust, contenting itself with" a discussion
of the Texas law as applicable to this
case. The opinion sustained the decisions
of the State court to the extent of affirm
ing them, and was thus opposed to the
contentions of the oil company, but It does
this on the ground that the State laws
imposed a condition which the oil com
pany had accepted, and hence was with
out ground of complaint.
The case involved the constitutionality
of the anti-trust law of Texas, which was
sustained by to-day's opinion.
The opinion was handed down by Jus
tice McKenna, who. reviewing the case.
eaid that the Waters-Pierce Company was
a private corporation incorporated In Mis
souri, which had begun business in the
State of Texas in liS9. The suit grew out
of the charges that the oil company vio
lated the statutes of the State of ISS9 and
I£S5 against Illegal combinations In re
etraint of trade, thereby incurring a for
feiture of its permit to do business In the
History of the Case.
The trial was first had In the District
Court of TravU County. In which the ver
dict was against the oil company. On ap
peai to the Court of Civil Appeals of the
State this decision was affirmed, and it
was brought to this court on a writ of
error. The basis of the action was the
Standard Oil trust, organired in ISS2. and
it was owned that its intention was to
control and monopolize the petroleum In
dustry of the I'nited States in various
subdivisions, awarding Texas to the Wat
ers-Pierce Company. The decision of to
day was based upon the propositions
which were submitted to the jury in the
original trial. Judge McKenna said:
The transactions of local commerce which
ttri- held by the State courts to be violations
of the statute provided in contracts with cer
tain merchants In which the plaintiff in error
required them to buy of It exclusively, and
from its other source, or buy exclusively of the
complainant in error and not to sell to any
person handling competing oils, or to buy ex
clusively from plaintiff in error and to sell at
a. price fixed by it.
The statutes must be considered In reference
to these contracts. In any other aspect they
are not subject to cur review on this record
except thf power of the State court to restrict
their rejrulation to local commerce upon which
a contention is raised.
Contract Violated.
He eaid the propositions raised by the
State courts had been broadly discussed
and many considerations transcending
them had been presented, relating to
grievances which do not enter Into the
case as affecting the oil company. The
court felt constrained to connne Itself to
this particular grievance. Stating this
grievance he said that It was that the
statutes of Texas limit its right to make
contracts and take away the liberty as
sured by the fourteenth amendment to
the constitution of the United States. Be
sides, it was asserted that the statutes
made many discriminations between per
sons and classes of persons. On this lat
ter point the court did not fpel called up
on to pass. The oil company is a foreign
corporation and its right of contracting
In the State of Texas was the only sub
ject of Inquiry- On this point the opinion
held that "the State prescribed the pur
poses of a corporation and the means of
executing those purposes."
In this cape the oil company could not
claim an exemption from the principle
"on the ground that the permit of the
company was a contract Inviolable
against subsequent legislation by the
State. The statute of ISS9 waa a condition
upon the plaintiff In error, within the
power of the State to Impose, and ¦what
ever its limitations ¦were upon the power
of contracting, whatever Its discrimina
tions were, they became conditions of the
permit and were accepted with it. The
statute was not repealed by the act of 1835.
The only substantial addition made by
the latter act was to exclude from its
provisions organizations of laborers for
the purpose of maintaining a standard of
Question of Constitutionality.
Further, as to the act of IS&S, he said:
"It is either constitutional or unconstitu
tional. If It Is constitutional, the plaintiff
in error has no legal cause to complain
of It. If unconstitutional it does not af
fect the act of 1839 and that, as we have
Feen. imposes valid conditions upon these
plaintiffs In <»rror and their violation sub
jected its permit to do business in the
State to forfeiture." . .

Nob Hill Property Wanted
by Florence Blythe- j
Moore. *
Price Offered Said to Be About Three
Hundred Thousand Dollars— Flood
May Sell the Baldwin Hotel
Mrs. Florence Blythe-Moore is negotiat
ing for the purchase of the block of land
owned by the Fair estate on Nob Hill,
bounded by California, Powell, Sacra
mento and Mason streets, and It is
rumored that she contemplates the erec
tion thereon of a splendid residence. It
cannot be said definitely that Mrs. Blytho-
Moore Intends establishing herself among
the nabobs on the hill in a house of her
own. It is a fact, however, the she ex
pects soon to become the owner of the
Fair block, which was considered a few
years ago one of the most valuable resi
dence properties in the city, adjoining as
it does the Flood property and being
within a short distance of the Stanford
and Huntington properties. In fact the
deal is practically closed; that much was
admitted by Manager Lee of the Fair
Estate Company yesterday, but Mr. Lee
declined to. divulge the price that is to.be
paid or give any other Information until
the deeds are passed.
"Negotiations for the sale of the prop
erty to Mrs. Blythe-Moore are under
way," said Mr. Lee, "but a sale is not a
sale until it Is made and I can give out
no Information on the subject. I would
prefer that nothing be said about it un
til the i deal Is consummated."
It is understood that the purchase price
will be in the neighborhood of $300,000, but
as there have been no large sales in that
locality for several years- there is little
data from which to make an estimate of
the value of the property. C. P. Hunt
ington paid $250,000 for the Colton house,
including a half a block of land, a few
years ago and land in that vicinity has
certainly not advanced In value since
that time.
There is but one building on the Fair
block, the old Porter residence, on the
corner of Powell and California, now oc
cupied as a boarding-house. It is stated
that tlfe present tenants have been noti
fied to vacate, which would seem, If true,
to Indicate' that extensive improvements
are contemplated In the ; near future.
Another^ rumor of a more shadowy
character, ! however, that has been cir
culating in real estate circles during the
past few days,, is to the effect that James
L. Flood has under consideration an offer
from a syndicate, of .local capitalists for
the Baldwin Hotel site on Market street.
Mr. Flood paid Mr. Baldwin something
over 11,200,000 for the property and rumor
says he has been offered an advance of
something like $100,000 or $150,000. Mr.
Flood is saying nothing and I. W. Hell
man, who was mentioned as one of the
members of the syndicate, says he knows
nothing about It.
Circular Issued Tells of
Leong Xi Chew's Bold
Plans. .
Chinese Merchant Claims That a
Most Baring Attempt Was
Made to Kill Him in •
His Store.
A circular distributed throughout China
town two nights ago announced that
Leong Xl Chew, one of the famous Chi
nese reformers, now at Honolulu', will be
in this city next month. The document
was written by Chew and issued at the
instigation of the Chinese Empire Reform
Association, whose headquarters are on
Washington street.
In substance the handbill declares -that
if the dethroned Emperor is not rein
stated the powers of Europe will soon in
vade China and eventually control It.
Chew implores the Chinese of America to
use their efforts and money in behalf of
the young Emperor.
The reformer also states that while he
is cognizant of the fact that the Chinese
Government has placed a . large price on
his head, he is willing to. brave all danger
and come to stir up an agitation id Amer
ica. ; He says that he has but one life to
live and is ready to sacrifice it In the
cause of his Emperor. Should Chew come
to San Francisco he may experience some
difficulty In landing, as the Customs
house officials have received positive In
struction to refuse him the privilege of
setting foot on American soil. Chinese
Consul General Ho Vow, in discussing the
circular, said it was a bold piece of work
and believes that the reformer Is brazen
in publlcally announcing his Intention of
visiting this coast.
Ho Chee Ying, a liquor merchant at the
corner of Clay street and Spofford alley,
claims that a daring attempt was made
to take his life yesterday morning. Ylng,
who is a Suey Sing, says that a Hop Sing
man entered his establishment, and after
purchasing 10 cents' worth of whisky,
drew a long revolver, and, pointing it at
the merchant, pulled the trigger three
times. The cartridges failed to explode,
however, and the would-be murderer fled.
me highbinder difficulty is still far
from a settlement. The police look for
crime at any time and tbe work of search
ing Chinese for weapons still goes on.
Chinese Consul General Ho Vow Is work
ing with the police and making every ef
fort to restore peace. The members of
the Board of Health visited the Chinese
quarter last night and continued their
prolonged tour of inspection.

Bradford Leavitt, pastor of the First Uni
tarian Church of this city; S. M. Augus

Clampett, pastor of Trinity Episcopal
Church, was to have spoken, but he sent
a letter of regret, in which he wrote that
he was suffering from tonsilltis.
Rev.' Mr. Leavitt ¦ said that one of the
problems of the time was whether the
church had lost its influence in any de
gree in the world. He thought tbat It
was true that the church was less influ
ential in certain parts of the world than
it had once been, but the. need for religion
was never more strongly felt, nor was re
ligion ever stronger than It was at this
time. People doubted much that the
church held to be dogmatically true; but
Christianity was not losing Its grip, nor
was the world approaching a refined kind
of paganism.- • Immortality could noi be
proved. There was truth underlying ag
nosticism. But man was not all intellect.
He had an ethical-and religious nature
that must be taken into account. There
never had been as much need of a true,
real church as now.
S. M. Augustine said that God did not
need the love of man, but man did need
the love of man. The church should teach
optimism and fit men to live rather than
to die. In closing he eulogized "the sweet
religion of humanity." • •
. Professor Babcocfc said that there were
thousands of men in the city who never
gave any thought to God or to religion.
Nevertheless true religion would awaken
a response among them. What thoy
wanted was that church people should
show love in their lives ana dealings with
men as well as in their talk.
Rev. Mr. Hosmer said that all the criti
cisms of the church were true, but the
church would exist as long as society ex

Prank V. Savage, a one-armed man, died

Savage had been drinking heavily for a
long- time and under the influence of li

a boisterous manner. He threatened any
