CIVIL SUITS WILL BE AID GROSSMAN LEADS OTHERS FOLLOW v e MOLWt ILL. ---v. e-vi J r Ivk ' i McReynold at Work on Proceedings to Be Pushed Against Several Combines. Washington, D. C. Oct 7. Presi dent Wilson Is planning a sensational warfare on monopoly, according to a persistant report heard In Washington In addition to wholesale dissolution suits, it Is reported that the presi dent will invoke the criminal prose cution of trust magnates and urge gov ernment ownership of coal mines and other monopolies. With the tariff law in operation and currency legislation in sight, the trust policy is booked as the third number on the president's program of deliv ering tiie people from the oppression 'of special privilege. Wall street has become so excited over this report that the stock ticker yesterday carried this statement: "After the currency bill is passed, President Wilson will disclose a dras tic trust policy. Ills plans Include the dissolution of all monopolies in the nation and criminal prosecution of the men behind them. "The first batteries of the adminis tration probably will be directed against the beef and coal trusts, and the work is progressing under the direction of Attorney General McRey nolds to prosecute these. "At the regular session of congress. President Wilson will ask amendments to the anti-trust act which will ampli fy his old slogan that 'Guilt Is per sonal.' " WHITE IIOI SE nEIK REPORT. Wall street, apparently, Is so ex cited over the prospect .that it has attributed to President Wilson the famous slogan of former Governor Harmon of Ohio. These reports of a developing sen sational trust policy have been denied frequently. These denials were re peated yesterday at the White house and at the department of justice. It Is stated that the president's trust policy already Is In operation, and that the only development following cur rency legislation will be the consid eration of provisions to strengthen the Sherman law. It is expected that the president will recommend the enactment of legisla tion similar to the antitrust laws known as the "seven slst'-rs," passed by the New Jersey legislature in the last months of his governorship. The trust policy bring carried out by Attorney General Molteynolds con sists of dissolution suits as under previous administrations, with im lnal prosecutions held in reserve for particularly vicious violations of the law. The administration expects to set a new record in the dissolution of monopolies, but whether it will insti tute raoro criminal prosecutions than formerly remains to be determined.

Xew Haven railroad, It transpired last night that the New England railroad monopoly probably will be broken up by agreement following negotiations between the department and the cor poration officials A delegation of the latter is expected in Washington with in a few days. Even If the suit be filed it Is prob able that an agreement on a decree of dissolution will be reached without trial of the case. The New Haven is eager to avoid a suit.

Senator Kern of Indiana Is advocat ing cr n-inal prosecution of the coal barous, and ether democratic leaders are prupo3:n; government ownership of coal mines. President Wilson, it Is stated, has given no serious con sideration to the suggestion that the government take over the coal mines. He has considered the proposal of government ownership of the telegraph and telephone Eystems, but has reach ed no decision as to its advisability. The attorney general is opposed to the proposition, as he thinks such a step would lead to government owner ship of railroads, a result which he believes would be deplorable.
