San Francisea
\u25a0; The pica of guilty entered today by eight members of the fish >
trust is. in my opinion, a great victory for the people. It establishes J
conclusively, as stated by The Call, that there was a trust existing *
among the wholesale fish dealers of £an Francisco. . The plea entered
on the part of these eight members means a dissolution of the unlaw- J
ful conibination. Since the riling of the indictment the pncCot hsh : 4
has not only dropped materially, but independent fishermen have t
gone into the business, and others are now preparing to go into the J
tish business; this will mean a further reduction in the price of fish. *
The small fishermen now feel confident that they will receive pro-
tection and are preparing to-retail the fish that they catch.
The only thing. to be regretted in the matter is that Paladini and >
the other leaders of the trust were absolved from their offense by the \u2666
provision -of section 304 of the political code, which . granted them I
immunity by reason of. the fact that they appeared and testified before/ 4
the senate .'committee. I shall ask the San Francisco delegation to |
the legislature to recommend the repeal of the above section, or at «
least to amend it so it will not be so broad in its scope. In the event <»
of it being repealed we can then institute new proceedings. <v
The Cartwright act itself also is 1 uncertain and-ambiguous in many I
parts, and the next 'legislature would do well to amend it in certain- <>
respects. j . '-.-;" i-O^v' l[
At the calling of the trial the court intimated that no testimony J
would beadmittcd of any act pr declaration of any of the defendants «
prior to the time of the conclusion of the senate investigation. This, ''
of course, made it impossible for us to get a conviction against any x
person called before the senate committee, because jwc could not 4
prove,- under the rule laid down by the court, the formation o^ the
conspiracy." While we were able to^prove a few overt acts occurring t [
after the conclusion of the committee's investigation, those a
acts of themselves were not sufficient to es'taWish a prima facie case, t
Jt i«, indeed, .unfortunate in the^se cases that the prime nfpvers, the /
persons really responsible for the^formation pf the trust, are immune <>
from prosecution because of the fact that they were sworn arid exam- t
ined before the senate committee. For this reason we. would have. J
been very much embarrassed in the trial of the other cases — of the \u2666
less responsible individuals — and sinee 4 separate trials were demanded £
and a great number of witnesses would have to be subpenaed and +
brought here from outside the state, the action of these defendants '+
in pleading guilty will be a great saving to the city and county, while <\u25a0
the result to be accomplished will be the same. It will be the policy J
of this office in the future to keep a careful watch not only over the <>
fish trust, but over other combinations controlling the necessaries , <>
of life. ; v: v - \u25a0;;
I desire to express my thanks to The Call for the part it took in <\u25ba
the prosecution, for the gathering of .the testimony against the mem- ,-y
bers of the combination was largely due to the efforts of this paper, ';
and the people : should appreciate this fact. Vw v \u25bc
Oartwright law, were returned by the
grand jury. .
Then began a series of delays. The
law was invoked on every possible oc
casion to bring about every possible
delay.. There followed a storm of ob
jections, demurrers, postponements and
excuses. The work of meeting the
Ipgral fisrht was placed in the hands of
James F. Brennan. assistant district
attorney. The cases -tfere fought^ and
refousht in their preliminary stages,
but eventually the framework of tech
nicalities was swept down and the de*
fendants were face- to face with trial.
Then -it was that 12 of them eougfht
refuge in having testified before the
senate committee and in that plea they
found safe sanctuary. The remaining
eight had no such refuge. They fought
to the last moment, but yesterday when
the time approached' for the impanel
ing of the jury, they surrendered to the
inevitable, pleaded guilty and begged
for- mercy.
": Of the. men who pleaded guilty T«r
antino and Maggio are officials of the
WYestern fish company, Giacomino Mar
fchJ arid Rosario Villa of the Interna
tional flsh company, J^hn P.rKessing
jjnd Henry P. Hitore of the California
ish company, and Guiseppe Partinicrt
and Salvatore Dentici of the New San
Francisco fish company. All these con
cerns, were charged with forming the
lisli trust. r i
\u25a0 Such was the arrogance and" domin
eering attitude of the trust that it
maintained a blacklist of those inde
pendent concerns which refused to bow
"down to its rules. Other dealers trad
ing with firm*, on the blacklist were
given to understand that such .business
must stop and. en account of the
:|?treisgth and power wielded by the
combination such business usually did

tion tlio trust was in a position to cut,
°undcr^cll and generally demoralize the
fish market at will. Furthermore,
small dealers who bought a certain
kind of fish elsewhere than from a com
pany representing the trust had to
face a boycott of all the firms in the
"The situation was one," ssid Fiek

citizens, and The Call is to be highly
complimented in taking the initiative

pas highly pleased at the success.
'."We have had much with which to
contend." he said, "but the pleas of
jyuilty from the eight prove beyond all
shadow of a doubt the existence of a
trust. Evidence to this effect was in
the hands of The Call and in the office
of the district attorney, but the general
public seemed to have, some doubts.

"Apart from the general good of

cases will make It evident to J others
that illegal combination is fraught
with a good deal of danger. A belief

circles that a combine had only to be
strong enough to defy the law. That
idea, I hope, will fast disappear.. --The

Explosive Is Offered in Court

objection to the admission of the dy

that he was not positive it was- the
same he dug up in de Fremery park
