Wiley, wife of the government's former chief chem isf; Mrs. Jchn Rogers. Jr- a sister-in law of Secretary of War Stimsor; . Mrs. Robert M.- La Follette, wife of the Wisconsin senator, and scores of other women prominent on their own account and doubly prominent per haps because of the official positions occupied by their husbands or other men members of their families.

The procession was led by Miss Inez Mil- holland of New York, to whom her sis ter suffragists gracefuMy accorded the meed of greatest beauty.

Luther Con ant, Jr., commissioner of corporations, today submitted to the president his report on the International Harvester company, a long and exhaustive docu ment which concludes witH the state ment that the company's position in the industry is chiefly due to a monop olistic combination in the harvester machine usiness, certain unfair com petitive methods and superior com mand cf capital. i The report shows that the 'five con cerns that consolidated in 1902 had been in keen competition, but that this competition had not been destructive as at least four of them has been mak ing good profits. The ner company, says jVIr. Conant, was able to maintain its monopolistic position and extend on a large scale Into new lines of the farm machinery industry, in part by the acquisition of seme of its chief rivals in the harvesting machine busi ness; in part by using its monopolist ic advantage in these line:3 to force tne sale of its new lines; In part by certain objectionable competitive methods, and especially through its ex ceptional command of capital, itself the result of combination. The com missioner found that the value of the physical properties that worn involved in the consolidation plus the working capital covered substantially 90 per cent of the capital stock issued, so there can be no charge of great over capitalization. The earnings' of the company have shown a marked" increase. IS HELD AS A BIG CRIMINAL Prisoner in Atlanta Believed to Be Canadian Robber Who Attacked Chicago Lieutenant. Atlanta, ua.. March 2.- J. M.
