BIDDERS ARE IN COLLUSION Por Last Twenty-Six Yrurs Business lias Hern Divided Between Cur nenle unit Ilrthleliem Mills. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, June 28.-Speclal.)- Representative Barton has Joined forces with Secretary of the Navy Daniels von the proposition of having the government manufacture its own armor plate. Th secretary naa agreed to furnish Mr. war ton with information on the subject with out being required by resolution to give the data. Mr. Barton hod a conference with the secretary today, and afterwards gave out the following statement: "A report of tho naval board made March 3, 1906, proves conclusively that allowing the trusts magnanlmeus mar gins, the best nrmor plate can be made for less than $300 a ton. We have been paying between $400 and $500 a' ton. I feel that I am not violating n confidence when I state that the honorable secretary of the navy In a talk with htm this mornln? said that there was no doubt In his mind that the concerns bidding on this class of work understood each other perfectly and the records show that during the period from 1887 the Carnegie Stool company re ceived in round numbers $33,500,000 and the Bothlehem Steel company $33,250,000 from the government for tho manufacture of armor plate and that the Bethlehem com pany received orders for 78,291 tons and the Cameglo company rccetved orders for 73,120 tons of armor plate. What bet tor evidence do we need to prove collu sion? "If we hod made our own armor pinto during that period, using the extravagant (as they admit) estlmato of the board ($300 a ton), we would have saved In round numbers $26,000,000 to the govern ment. ThlB same board estimated that to build a plant would cost tho govern ment $3,750,000. Assuming that It would cost $4,000,000, we have presented to th steel trust six and a half plants In the profits they have received. I do not un derstand why positive action was not taken after receiving such a clear and concise report from the hoard, but dila tory tactics have ever been the weapons of the Interests when they knew better than to force a question squarely on fact and reason." Oil Gompany Ouster . Modified by Supreme Court of Missouri JEFFERSON CITY Mo., June 28. The Missouri &uprerne court today announced a decision allowing the Standard Oil company of Indiana, which had been outsed from the state, to continue business In Missouri. The decision doos not revoke -the order of ouster Issued some time ago ns a re sult of proceedings Instituted by the state under the anti-trust law, but merely suspends the order for so long a time as the company compiles with the laws of the state. The suspension of the ouster was made after evidence had been taken before a special commissioner to sustain the con tention of the company that It no longer had a monopoly of the oil business 9f the state. The decision suspending the ouster pro vides that tho supremo court shall re tain Jurisdiction of the case; that the at torney general, If tho company violates tho anti-trust law, may move to vacati the suspension ot the ouster, and that independent of the attorney general the court may order evidence to be taken to ascertain whether tho company Is com plying with the laws.

Tho' Missouri supreme court pday overruled the demurrer filed by the fire Insurance companies that had announced their in tention to cease 'writing business In this state, and Issued a 'temporary order re straining the companies "from cancelling policies.
