HUE to predictions, the second
day of the Texas state Demo
cratic convention proved the
stormy one.
The Ferguson macnine worked like
a clock until the resolutions came for

was granted 3a minutes to tell why.
Jake Wolters, of Houston, the Fer
jruton leader, was given time to reply

also giien time to advocate the plat
form as adopted minus the Bailey
amendments. Mr. Bailey was given

by the chee- that greeted his appear

he spoke, but the outcome was not
expected to be changed by his speech.

Wednesday morning's session was the
big one of the convention. Anticipating
the Bailey speech and some "hot stufP
to follow It. the big tent was crowded

Company Is Declared to Con
stitute a Monopoly in
Restraint of Trade.
ST. PATH Minn.. Aug. 12. By an
opinion handed down by tbe United
Stales court here today, the Inter
national Harvester company is declared
a monopoly in restraint of interstate aad
foreign trade, and is oroered dissolved.
Judges Smith and Hook, the majority,
handed down the assenting opinion.
Judge Walter H. Sanborn dissented.
Unles the corporation submits a plan
for dissolution within 99 days the court
will entertain an application for a re

substantial dominance. That is the cvntrol

Is said, that there Is a. growing recogni- ?

ccurt might have pnnmM that the de
fendants were violating the anti-trust law
and have so found on the theory that those
who have power to violate a law are
presented to do so Yet the demonstration
by the factual trial which the evidence
seems to me to present that at the time
this salt was commenced the defendants
were, and for seven ears before that time
had been, conducting tbe business of the
international company, and their business
without unduly restraining or monopolizing
Interstate or foreign trade, ought to, and
In my mind must, far outweigh that ques
tionable presumption. This alleged pre
sumption never seemed wsll founded or
reasonable to me and now that the rule
of reason most be applied to the Interpre
tation of the autl-trust law and to Its
application to the facts of each partieu.ar
case, as wen as tne otner laws and to Lne
facts of other eases, I think this alleged

Monopolization Not Shown.
"The controDng issue In this case Is
not what combination or monopoly was
made In IMS. 1MJ or IMC nor whether or
not that combination was violation of tbe
anti-trust law If it is, were the defend
ants in 191Z doing or threatening to do acts
which so unreasonably restrained or
monopolised Interstate or foreign tradn
that lt is the duty of this court of equity
to enjoin and prevent their future perfor
mance, The particular facts proved In this in
dividual case not only fall to show that
the defendants were unduly or unreason

stopped by the emperor's orders to avoid needless sacrifice of life.
The French foreign minister declares all the forts surrounding Liege intact
and that only a small force of Germans entered the town itself under cover of
