Follow ing the holiday reecs.i the Supremo Court of the United states will recon vene Tuesday for what promises to be one of the most Important sessions In the entire history of that body. Owing to the deaths of Chief Jus tiro Fuller and Associate Justice I'.rewer and the Illness of Associate Justice Moody, which ncessitated his retirement from tiie Iwmh, virtually all of the important cases argued dur ing the past year before the highest tribunal must be reargued before they re decided. Full Bench Available! When the court convenes next week It will be the first time in over a year that it has met with a full bench. The ourt will be comiiosed of Edward 1. White, the new Chief Justice, and As sociate Justices Harlan, McKcnna, Holmes, Day, Lurton, Hughes, Van De vanter and Lamar. ' There are about thirty Important cajses heard ot the last term which are n tho ducket for reargument. Many of tho casea will be. heard at the same time. .The fifteen Involving the con stitutionality of the corporation tax were heard as one case and doubtless will be so presented at the next hear ing. The corporation tax coses are set fr nrgument next Tuesday. These cases were brought to determine the legality of the new tax, which Is .bringing in revenue at the r.v of $;5.kw,ooo - year. Tne law went into enect juno 30 of this yeair. Should the Supreme Court, after reargument. declare the tax not constitutional, the money al ready collected must be refunded. Others on Docket. Of equal Importance with the cor poration tax coses are the suits brought by the Government for the dissolution of the Standard Oil Com pany and the so-called tobacco trust These also are on the docket for reor- gument next Tuesday. These two cases Involve substantial ly every feature of the "trust ques tion," so far as It falls within the pur view of the Sherman anti-trust law. Yet they are not precisely alike. In deed, It Is said that In some particu lars they are so dissimilar that the court might find in favor of the Gov ernment In one case, and against it in the other. Tho two cases are alike In that they are proceedings in equity to enjoin alleged violations of the law of the land neither is in its essence n. crim inal action. In both suits the charges pressed are those alleging unlawful combination and conspiracy In re- tmlnt of Interstate trado and com merce, and continuing monopoly attempted monopoly, of Important ele ments In Interstate commerce, Trust Cases Differ. The Standard Oil Company of New- Jersey Is attacked as a "holding com ,nv" whllo the American Tobacco Company is alleged to be both a noiu- ng ond an operating company. An other difference between tho two cases lies In the fact that tho Standard Oil Company is charged with offense ntminat the Sherman law alone: tho obacco coriwnitions are charged with offending also tho Wilson tariff act of 1894. which extended tho application of tho anti-trust law to any conspiracy n restraint of trado one party to which was an lmjsorter, As a result of the hearing of the two cases In the circuit courts, other differ ences were either mado or became ap parent. In the tobacco suit the lower court did not find sufficient evidence to hold that there was a monopoly In the trade In question, although it did hold that there was a combination In restraint of trade. In the Standard Oil case, the court was unanimous In find ing that there was an Illegal monopoly In addition to there being a conspiracy Other Important Cases. A number of other Important cases nre to be reargued. In addition to the corporation tax cases and the antl trust suits. The boycott and contemr eases arising out of the injunction proceedings In the District of Colum bin nirulnst the American Federation of Iabor have been assigned for hear lnff on January 16. Two other eases o ....n.nnn re those involvln the ouestlon whether the penalties for vio latlng tho twenty-eight hour law for the transportation of live stock snail be determined by the Individual ship .r w the train.

FREE BIBLES FOR GUESTS. Wind Causes Accident. Moisant was thrown from his mo noplane, and landed on his head, thirty-six feet from where the machine Ftruck the ground. His neck was brok en by the fall and death resulted al most instantly, otherwise there was ! not a bruise on the boily. I The moment Moisant Ftruck the who happened to be near, picked him m. while newspapermen and officials rushed to hlin. A special train of flat cars was standing near the scene of the accident and the body was placed on board, brought to the city and tak en to an undertaking establishment The expression on Musant's face was that of a sleeping man, not the slightest of fear or pain being appa rent. The wind was the cause of the accl dent. Moisant. guided by white flags which lines the course, rounded the circle twice In an effort to find a land ing place. Tho third time around the wind, which was blowing about fifteen miles across the course, drove the ma chine to tho earth. Moisant In trying to get back over the grounds swerved suddenly to the left, then attempted his famous flight circle, considered ao dangerous that, it Is said, but one oth er man besides the dead aviator has ever attempted it." At this instant the wind caught the planes of the ma chine. It tipped, pointed Its nose di re-ctly at the ground and came down like a flash, while Moisant, hurled from the machine, dreve head first to tho earth. Career of Daring Exploits. Moisant was born In Chicago in 1S70. When 19 years of age ho drifted to Central America, became a soldier of fortune and trader, and finally was driven from San Salvador when the general under whom he was fighting met defeat. Moisant at that time was wealthy, but his property was confis cated by the government. Soon after wards he went to Spain nnd later turn ed up at Paris when the Wright Profil ers were there exhibiting their ma chines. Ho became interested in the lossibilitles of flying machines, and soon an enthusiastic aviator. His FIGHT BETWEEN REPORTERS. Knox Favors U. S.-Jap War If Armies Are Newspapermen. Washington, D.
