IKES IT GRIME TO BOOST PUCES HARVESTER TRUST IS DISSOLVED IN MINNESOTA CASE Federal Court at St. Paul De clares Violation of Sherman Anti-Trust Law Must Be Split Three Times. .ST. PACI.. Minn.. Air.'. 12. Disso lution of the International Harvester Co. on the grounds that it is a trust in violation of the Sherman law was ordered in a decision handed down today by the federal circuit court here. The giant harvester trust must sub mit to the court within to days a plan of actually splitting the combine into J at least three separate and inde- penuent concerns or tne court will appoint a receiver. Tho decision is signed !y a ma jority of the judges, only Judge W. II. Sanborn of Minnesota dissenting. Judge Walter I. Smith of Iowa and Judge William C. Hook of Kansas constitute the majority. The majority decision declares that since its or ganization in 1S9L' the Harvester C. has existed every moment of the time in violation of the Sherman anti trust law. The original corporations which constituted live concerns, vio lated one section of. that law by sub duing competition among themselves and the combination violated another section by monopolizing trade. One serious fault found by the court was the fact that the harvester trust ad vertised the D. M, Osborne company as an independent company for two years after the International had ab sorbed it. The harvester trust was in control of SO to S." per cent of the agricultural implement, trade but by so advertising the Osborne company the trust caught the trade which did not want to so to the trust.

"The forts remain intact as the em peror did not wish to sacrifice, life unnecessarily, hut as soon as the heavy artillery arrives the forts will be taken without the loss of a man."

Garrison stated today that the latest official advices from abroad indicated that the United States will have to superintend the return of from 1.". 000 to 0.000 Americans, a majority of whom are destitute. "Orders to all foreign missions, both consuls and diplomatic officers, are instructed to charter every available neutral vessel without loss of time and to start them back to the United States carrying a capacity cargo of Ameri cans." said ecy. Garrison. "Government officials abroad have been instructed to make inquiries as to the earliest moment when these ships can sail and to see that all Americans who desire to return home immediately be placed on board. The companies owning the steamships will be guaranteed payment for all pas sengers by the government. The gov ernment in turn, will charge the usual rate for th cabins, except in the case of destitute persons who will be allow ed to travel free or with the promise of pavment when they return to the United States. "We understand that there are 12. 000 Americans in southern Kurope alone who wish to return to the United States." said the secretary.

Prospects of Japan's participation in the war and movements of the French and German armies were a source of divided in terest here today. iieports from the far east saying that Japan was ready to launch an attack on possessions of Germany aroused anxiety in conserv ative circles. The Times devotes its leading editorial to this phae of the situation and after stating that the advent of Japan was unforseen. says: 'Japan is acting in this matter upon her own initiative. She lias al ways bitterly resented the creation of the still unfinished German strong sold (Kiao-Chau) so near to her own shores, it has always been believed that at a suitable opportunity she would neek to oust Germany from Kiao-Uhau." Keiterating the . statement that Japan is acting on her own initiative, the editorial concludes: Ve trust that our valued ally in the far east will limit her action to Kiao-Shau. Seizures of German ter ritory elsewhere in the Pacific might lead to grave misunderstandings among our kinsmen and might injure, instead of help our cause." Germans Have Huge Army. There is accumulating evidence to indicate that the hulk of the first line German army, about to operate against France, is to advance nirth ward of oLrraine. There are about L'O army corps all ready to move for ward including the fourteenth Aus trian army corps, which is reported to have reached Jstein. The eight eenth, and fourteenth German corps are reported to be moving northward rail. The twenty-first German army corps is between Melna and Sarrebrug. North of a line drawn from Metz northwest for 50 miles t Montmedy on the France-Belgian frontier are hundreds of thousands of German?. The German forces have been massed into close formation, which is a reminder of the military tactics of Napoleon. With such concentration and in such country as the Germar.s would have to traverse supplies would be difficult to obtain, but on the other hand the German military experts be lieve that the wooded condition of the territory would make it hard for the French field artilery ti assert its pre eminence. Along .the entire front of the Ger man army beginning at ilege and ex tending northward there comes first the third artillery consisting of the seventh, ninth and tenth corps facing westward along the Meuse river. The most advanced troops of the northern wing ot the German army are the fourth corps at Uochefort and the nineteenth o rps at Bastogne. These trvops have thrown up intrenohments. Where Troops Are Stationed. The vanguard of the German forces in Luxemburg is the eighth corps, while the twelfth and third Bavarian corps are stationed behind it along th TroiFe-Verges railroad. The six teenth ore in touch in the forces at Metz and the fifteenth and twenty first corps lie further south and it is reckoned that to these soldieis would fall mainly a defensive mission. The second line of the German army, beginning at Vervlers in Bell glum and extending southward forms another powerful wall of steel. On the extreme right of this line are the third rnd eleventh corps. The thirteenth and first Bavarion corps are at Sarrebruck. Counting the re serve division.! of each army corps the kaiser will shortly have about 0S0.000 men to launch upon northern France and the Belgian plains. Six German army corps have been left to face Russia on the eastern frontier. These are the first (Prus sian), second (Prussian), fifth, sixth, seventh and twentieth. In tho aggregate Franc" and her allies, will probably have to face 20 German army corps and approx-o imately eight divisions of German cavalry. After the total strength of the grand army of western Germany is marshaled German arms from the southern boundary of Alsace to the northern line of Belgium will aggre gate 1,227.500 combatants with TS3.000 rifles. 63.000 eabres. 4,4 1G pieces of heavy and light artillery.
