Prices Are Low Tlowan HE fact that gasoline prices are constitutes the achievement •of ideal on the part of the Standard Oil Company. There several contributing factors. The ingenuity of the automobile en-, gineers in producing cars at moderate prices and the efficiency of the Standard Oil Company in producing gasoline in sufficient quantities to supply the demand have placed both in the light of staples. The demand for gasoline is steady—the supply is steady thus enabling the Company to utilize its equipment to a maximum capacity which in turn keeps down the costs and there fore selling prices. The Standard Oil Company through long years of experience is able to rescue and utilize all of those fractions which go to make gaso line, and to utilize all by-products for com modities of universal use. This plays an important part in keeping down manufacturing costs on the basic product— gasoline. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) further more steadfastly adheres to a fixed policy of supplying first, the patrons of the eleven states it serves. Thus at all times is there an ample supply for every five gallon buyer and every five thousand gallon buyer with no embarrassing demands from outside to drain the supply and force an increase in price. It is by this husbandry that the Company is able to keep down the price of gasoline that you may run your car for the enjoyment of your family or the furtherance of your busi-~ ness without great expense for fuel. You may not know that gasoline sells in this market for about one-half or one-third the price charged in Europe even under normal pre-war conditions. Standard Oil Company (Indiano) 910 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, UL the Leader When Writing Advertise** -f-v"" "K t$*r- are v- i.** «••', ,7 2VV t- •.'% tSL Court Holds People Supreme Tribunal (Continued from page 5) amendments here assailed, all hav ing for their object the correction of the existing system of mar keting the state's products. Year by year the conviction has deepened, in steadily increasing majorities, that public ownership of terminal eleva tors, mills and packing houses is the only effective remedy to correct the evils from which they believe them selves to be suffering. Their decision is not a popular whim but a deliberate conviction arrived at as a result of full discussion and repeated presenta tions of the subject at the polls. The acts which the court is asked to re strain are not those of public officials, who are pursuing enterprises of their own devising. Those acts express not simply the judgment of the state leg islature. To authorize their enact ment the people of the state have re drawn their constitution. That is the highest and most deliberate act of a free people. These constitutional amendments authorize and direct the state to do what the defendants are threatening to do. Their acts are simply the carrying out of the man date of those constitutional amend ments. MUST COMBINE OR FIGHT COMBINATIONS ALONE "It is hopeless to expect a pop ulation consisting of farmers scattered over a vast territory, as the people of this state are, to cre ate any private business system that will change the system now existing. The only means through which the people of the state have had any experience in joint action is their state government. If they may not use that as the common agency through which to combine their capital and carry on such basic industries as elevators, mills and packing houses and so fit their products for market and market the same they must con tinue to deal as individuals with the vast combinations of those terminal cities and suffer the in justices that always exist where economic units so different in power have to deal the one with the other. "The foregoing is what a majority of the people of the state have been persuaded to believe by those whose leadership they trust. Whether their grievances are real or fancied, wheth er their remedies are wise or foolish, are subjects about which the court is not concerned. The only object in trying to set them forth has been to place the constitutional amendments and laws here assailed in their true relationship to the life and thoughtr of the people by whom they were adopted. "The sole question then for the court is: Do these acts of the state constitute a violation of the fourteenth amendment of the federal Constitu tion as that amendment has been con strued by the supreme court I think it is clear that they do not. Even if I were in doubt it would be my duty to sustain the action of the state, for it is only when legislation is plainly and palpably unconstitutional that a court is justified in nullifying it. "The motion of the defendants will, therefore, be granted and a decree entered dismissing the bill with costs. "CHARLES F. AMIDON, Judged "Dated June 14th, 1919." You can not possibly have a broader basis for any government than that which includes all the people, with all their rights in their hands and with an equal power to maintain their rights.
