Washington, t. C, May 15. The government today won its case In the supreme court of the U. S. ugalnst the .standard Oil In that it is a conspiracy and monopoly In restraint of trade. The decree of the lower court wag uf flrnied, being modified In particulars which Chief Justice White Bald were very slight Indeed. Justice Harlan an nounced a dissenting opinion. Chief Justice White, after an exten rive recital of the facts In the Stan dard Oil cuse, held that court had Jur isdiction over the Buit which had been questioned by the Standard Oil. Taking up the first and second flec tion of the Sherman anti-trust law, upon which the court decided to base Its decision. White reviewed to law as it applies to the present case. Suit Instituted in 1906. The suit which called forth today's decision was Instituted In 190G In the United. Circuit Court for the Eastern district of Missouri. It was brought in the name of the United States. The Immediate object was to dissolve the Standard Oil company of New Jersey. From the very beginning, the bus iness and legal world recognized that the suits put the Sherman anti-trust law to the most severe, test to which it had leen nubjeeted . The law had been on tin. statute book since 1890 und had been the basis of some eight een suits finally passed upon by the Supreme Court of the United States. That the law was constitutional was accepted ns settled by the decisions, but simple as the words of the statute seemed, there was an absence of unan imity In regard to Its Interpretation. With that situation confronting the government und the defendants, the suit was begun with the general be lief that the entire business world would feel the effect of the outcome of the gigantic struggle. Claim of Government. The government claimed that two sections of the Sherman anti-trust law had been violated. The first sec tion reads as follows: 'Every contract, combination In the form of trust or otherwise, or conspir acy, In restraint of trade or commerce among the several states, or with for eign nations, Is hereby declared to be Illegal." The second section reads: "Every person (which subsequently was explained In the statute to Include corporations) who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize or combine or conspire with any other person or per sons, to monopolize, any part of trade or commerce among the several states, or with foreign nations, shall be deem ed guilty of a nilsdemeunor." .

Setting aside the isentences of Imprisonment Imposed liy the supreme court of the District of Columbia for alleged dis obedience to tho boycott injunction, the supreme court of the United States today held that Samuel flom ler, John (Mitchell ami Frank Morri son, president, vice president and sec retary, respectively, of the American eFderatlon of Iji'mr, had (been erron eously sentenced to Jail on the charge of contempt of the local court. The court unanimously held the on ly sentences that could 'be Imposed up on the lafior leaders were fines. In so holding the court found the court of appeals of the District of Columbia and supreme court of the district erred In treating: the contempt proceedings as a criminal caae, and not a civil one. The effect of holding the proceedings a civil one was to make Jail .Sentences Impossible. To correct the error tho case U sent back to the local courts with the direc tion that It be dismissed. At the same time tho court makes It possible for civil proceedings (0 De instituted against the lulbor men by the Ruck Stove &. Range Co., at whose Instance original contomipt was 'brought. Inasmuch as all the differences be tween the la'hor men and the Hacks company have been adjudlcuted, In cluding "boycott" cae out of which the contempt proceedings arose, to day's decision Is probably the Imt of this famous action. Bitter. Labor War. The charges of contempt against President Gompers, Vice President Mitchell and Secretary Morrison arose out of a Litter labor war between or ganized labor and the Buck's Stove and Range company, of St. Louis, Mo. The St. Louis concern had come into the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia to prevent by injunction, the American Federation of Iabor and Its official from boycotting Its own pro ducts or the business of those who dealt with It. The questions Involved und the. parties concerned attracted widespread attention. The company claimed that the Federation was try ing to unionize the company's shops. The labor leaders urged that the com pany was "unfair" to labor. The head of the company was J. W. Van Cleave, president of the National Manufactur ers' Association, which had often come into conflict with, the Federation. He was charged with hr.vlng been opposed to organized labor and with having sought to put his nickel plate workers on a ten-hour Instead of a nine hour basis. I Defendants Are Sentenced. Justice Gould, of the District Su preme Court Issued the Injunction prayed for by the company. An ap proval was taken to the Court of Ap peals of the District of Columbia but before that court coukl pass upon the validity of the Injunction. The Ruck's Stove and Range company ogaln came Into the District Supreme Court, this time with charges of contempt against President Gompers, Vice President Mitchell and Secretary Morrison. These men were accused of having violated the Injunction degree. Justice Wright found them guilty and sentenced President Gompers to one year In Jail; Vice President Mitch ell, to nine months; and Secretary Morrison to, six months.

Washington. D. C, Mjy 15. Tho Democratk meiuhets of the ways and means committee of the House today began drafting a revised tariff sched ule on wool, whic h will be., submitted to the Democratic caucus for ratifica tion. That the wool bill will be ready for a caucus probably within a week was the opinion of Democratic leaders. Advocates of free raw woot were not as confident today as they heretofore had exxre?sed thcmsHv that the re vised schedule would place raw ma terlal on the free list. Extraordinary pressure has been brought to ear by conservative leaders to secure the unanimous approval of a compromise bill, find these leaders Insist such a bill would meet caucin npproval. Such a Iblll might provide a tariff of aJxrut 5 or 6 cents a pound on raw wool, with the provision of a cent reduction each year until the raw product eventually would go on the free list and a cut of forty to fifty per cent in manufactured woolen goods. j The house Is not In session today.
