11 . a PRAISED AND CONDEMNED of organization of the Xobacco Trust Being Con sidered by the Lourt Central WlckenJiam Flies Iniwor ami Hake Several Hi ronnvndadoaji to tike Court objert U llan of IleorgaaUa- York, Oct. 30. The proposed the reorganization oi ue Tobacco company and co-de- to the government' anti- athern district of New York. Aft Attorney General Wlckers- via bad flled the government's an- wer to the plan, counsel for the de leodafit pleaded with the court to iccept the dissolution proposal. Lew ji'csss Ledyard, arguing for the de eadsnts, insisted that It was an hoaest plan to comply with the re quirements In the mandate of the Supreme Court for a reorganization tit will restore competition In com pliiace with the terms of the Sher Ean anti-trust law. Supporting the plan, representa- .jTefl of the preferred stockholders aad bondholders of the American Tobacco and constituent companies crged approval of the division of the trust into four principal segregated companies to be operated absolutely independent of each other. In sup port of these interests there appeared Joseph H. Choate and others, who in sisted that the reorganization plan was a sincere one, and pleaded that no hostile elements be permitted to destroy it though it might be subject to some amendment calculated to as sure protec tion to the property rights of citizens. InIeien!ents and Growers Object to Plan. Independent manufacturers, deal era and producers of tobacco unani mously disapproved the plan on the ground that it would not result in effectually breaking up the "trust" and that it is a sham proposal to di vide the properties, control of which still would be retained by the group of individuals now dominating the industry. Louis D. Brandeis, of Bos ton, made the principal argument against the proposal and sought to convince the court that it would be impossible to bring about thereby a restoration of the competitive system in the trade. Attorney General Files Answer. Attorney General Wickersham, ap pearing with the special prosecuting attorneys J. C. McReynolds and Ed win P. Grosvenor, will be heard to morrow. The answer of the Attor ney General filed today did not ex press general opposition to the dis solution plan but contained for the guidance of the court many restric tions deemed necessary to assure res toration of competition1 in the tobac co industry. Creation of a new condition, "hon estly in harmony with and not re pugnant to the law," is insisted upon by Attorney General Wickersham in his answer to the plan of dissolution and reorganization of the American Tobacco Company, and defendants to the government's anti-trust suit. The answer urged that any disin tegration, plan accepted be subject to revision within five years -and asked the court to grant a permanent in junction against each of the defend ants, their officers, employees, etc restraining them from "continuing or carrying into further effect the com bination adjudged Illegal by the Su preme Court." After referring to the directions of the Supreme Court that competitive conditions in the tobacco industry be restored, the Attorney General said: 'Obviously the effect of any plan of disintegration submitted to the con sideration of the court must be more or less a matter of conjecture, and it is impossible for the court to de termine in advance whether or not a Plan which proposes to restore com petitive conditions will actually ac complish the purpose intended." Want Right to Apply for Further Relief. Therefore, he contended, the gov ernment should be given the right to apply for further relief at any time within five years and to that end any of the new corporations proposed to be organized to carry out the plan should be brought in and made Party to this suit in order to be sub jected to the jurisdiction of the court Any plan adopted, the Attorney general urged, should prohibit the corporations among which the bus! aess of the combine is distributed from having officers in common, owning stock in each other, employ ing the same selling or purchasing agents, retaining, the same office force or occupying the same offices, or holding stock in any corporation any part of whose stock is also, held hy any of the other corporations among which the properties of the combine are distributed. As to the distribution of proper ties, the government suggests that no corporation he allowed to acquire suit wa DOtn praised and con- l7cced today before lhe Clrcult '"1 judges of the United States for property that woold Invest It Uh a1 much as 10 per cent of any mie-j Ui vce tooacco business that all covenant restricting the Ac tivities of members of the coabiaa lion be rescinded and that the United Cigar Stores Company be sold and distributed to parties other than the defendants. Counsel for North Carotin FaraV Union Want Receiver Named. The North Carolina counsel de clared they had not much confidence in the desire of the tobacco trust defendants to obey the law and that the only remedy for conditions ob taining ws a sale of the defendant's assets by a receiver. Judges La Combe, Ward. Coxe and Noyes, who are hearing the argu ments, took active part in the dis cussion.

There has been but little change in the war situation between Italy and Turkey during the last week. Italy has continued to strengthen her forces In Tripoli, while Turkey Is ap pealing to the powers of Europe to prevent further aggressions on the part of Italy. One thing is certain, and that is Europe will never per mit Turkey to again dominate Tri poli, and sooner or later Turkey will be driven out of all Africa. The fact that the present action of Italy in seizing Tripoli has met with the consent of the European powers Is an Indication that sooner or later all Africa will be divided up between the leading powers of Europe. Tripoli was conquered by the Romans over two thousand years ago and civilized. Modern Italy has now returned to take up the work that was started by the Roman Empire, but first it will have to undo the damage and re actionary influences of Turkey's rule. Italy attempted to conquer Abys sinia about fifteen vears aero, whieh resulted unsuccessfully, but in the present case it seems that Italy will completely triumph. Pot-Ash Discovered in the United States. The Agricultural Department an nounces that several large deposits of pot-ash have been discovered at different points in the United States. Heretofore this country has been forced to import pot-ash from Rus sia to the extent of over twelve mil lion dollars worth each year for fer tilizer. Tne Department of Agricul ture announces that this amount and more will be saved to our country next year. Suit to Dissolve the, Steel Trust. The Attorney-General of the Unit ed States has brought suit under the Sherman anti-trust law to dissolve the great United States Steel Corpor tlon. This company is a greater trust than the Standard Oil trust or the Tobacco trust. It may properly be termed the trust of trusts. Its ramifications in the business world are so extended that in one way or another it dominates or in fluences more or less every other great industrial enterprise. Indeed, it has a powerful effect over trans portation lines, telegraph lines, and all the great natural monopolies. President Taft Resents Attacks on Him. President Taft, in a speech a few days after the filing of this suit took i Helps! Mrs. J. F. Daniels, of Sip, Ky., writes: "I was so sick for 3 or 4 years;' I had to hire my work done, most of the time. I had given up hope. When I began to take Cardui, I knew, right away, it was helping me.

The President de nounced all of the serious accusa tions in a most emphatic manner, aad said that the men who make such charge can hardly be men capable of undemanding the nature of their charge. The President said that the report which the government agent had made to him showing that the United State Steel Company was a trust a described by the Supreme Court In It decisions in the Standard Oil and Tobacco trust eases were so strong that It waa hi duty not to delay an other day In bringing suit to dis solve that combination when once he was satisfied that it was a trust in violation of law.
