Most of his speech was devoted to

Government Wins in Long Fight to
Put Down Combination Which It
Was Claimed Was a Menace to
the Entire Country.
Washington.—The Standard Oil
Company of New Jersey and Its nine
teen subsidiary corporations were on
Monday declared by the supreme
court of the United States to be a
conspiracy and combination in re
Htraint of trade. It also was held to
be monopolizing interstate commerce
in violation of the Sherman anti trust
law. The dissolution of the combina
tion was ordered to take place within
six months.
Thus ended the tremendous strug
gle on the *!>art of the government to
put down, by authority of law, g com
bination, which, It claimed, was a
menace to the industrial and econo
mic advancement of the entire coun
At the same time the court inter
preted the Sherman anti-trust law so
as to limit its application to acts of
"undue" restraint of trade and not
"every" restraint of trade. It was on
this point that the only discordant
note was heard in the court. Justice
Harlan dissented, claiming that cases
already decided by the court had de
termined—once for all—that the word
"undue" and "unreasonable" or sim
ilar words, were not in the statute. He
declared that the reasoning of the
court in arriving at its finding was la
effect legislation which belonged in
every instance to congress and not to
the courts.
Ever since the degree in the case in
the lower court, the United States
circuit court lor the eastern district
of Missouri, was announced, hope has
been expressed by the "business
world" that the law would be modified
so as not to interfere with what was
designated honest buisness.
that section of the opinion calling for
the use of the rule of reason in apply
ing the law is regarded In many quar
ters as an answer to the prayers of
the "business world."
The opinion of the court was an
nounced by Chief Justice White. In
printed form it contained more than
twenty thousand words. For nearly
an hour the chief justice discussed
the case from the bench, going over
most, of the points in the printed opin
ion, but not once referring to it in
order to refresh his memory.
Trust Lawyer Outlines Plans.
Chicago.—"The Standard Oil com
pany of New Jersey has gone up into
the air like a skyrocket; let us hope
the descending debris will touch neith
er the wise nor the foolish."
This comment on the decision of the
supreme court of the United States
in the Standard Oil case was made
Monday night by Alfred D. Eddy, gen
eral counsel of the company in Chi
"The truth of the matter," added
Mr. Eddv. "lies In the fact that the
company has wittingly or unwittingly
violated a law which is not understood
even by its framers. The business of
the Standard Oil company will go on
as usual, although changes will be
made in order to comply with the
statute law and the decision affect
ing it."
A Complete Victory. Says Kellogg.
Washington.—"It is a complete vic
tory for the government." said Frank
R. Kellogg, who aB special counsel
for the government assisted ip the
prosecution of the Standard Oil case.
"I have read the opinion has*'ly of
course, but have seen enough to
know that the government is sustain
ed .by the court on every point con
tended for."
Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison Win
Before tho Highest Tribunal.
Washington.—Samuel Gompers, John
Mitchell and Frank Morrison, presi
dent, vice-president and secretary of
the American Federat on of Labor, re
spectively, stepped from within the
shadow of the Jail on Monday, when
the supreme court of the United
States set aside their sentences of im
prisonment for contempt growing out
of the litigation between the Buck
Stove and Range company of St. Lquia
and the federation.
The basis of the court's opinion was
that the proceeding brought against
the labor officers was for civil con
tempt which could be punished only
by the imposition of a fine. The sent
ence of the lower court to imprison
ment, was the penalty for criminal
contempt and in the premises, there
fore, it was not a legal punishment.

In Hat Trimming
i I
ITH a remarkable vogue In
black and white In ribbons and
straw shapes the liking for
flowers to provide color, fol
lows "as night the day." But flowers
are everywhere used, whether the hat
Is quiet or gay. A group of three mod
els shown here portray what may
truthfully be termed the three lead
ing Ideal shapes and their popular and
tasteful trimming.
In Fig. 1 a French sailor with a
decided upward roll to the brim and
a low dome crown, Is pictured. The
shape Is In white chip, but any other
white braid will give good effects. The
bow across the back is of white satin
ribbon having a border of black velvet
ribbon stitched on one edge. The loops
are wired. There are four of them
making a wide double Alsatian bow,
extending across the back of the hat,
mounted against the crown.
Small, full blown garden
are massed over the crown, concealing
it, and a few glossy leaves peep out
about the base, outlining the shape and
making a good finish.

Linen for Needle Work.
Heavy gray Uneu Is much used for
the background for embroideries
which are to be employed as house
decorations. Bedrooms and living
rooms for country houses are fur

the linen is usqd for bed hangings,
cushion covers, tablecloths and win

made of the gray linen embroidered
