GOVERNMENT WINS SUIT Lower Courts Ordered to Consider Methods of Dissolving the Com bination Within Six Months— English Corporations Involved. Washington, D. C. The American Tobacco company, and its associated accessory and subordinate corpora tions and companies, including the English corporation, were held by the supreme court of the United States to be co-operators in a combination il legal under the Sherman anti-trust act. The court decided as follows: That the combination in and of it self, as much as each and all of the elements composing it, whether con sidered collectively oi seperately, be decreed to be in restraint of trade and an attempt to monopolize and a mon opolization within the first and second sections of the anti-trust act. The court sent the case back to the lower court with directions to hear further the parties so as to ascertain whether a new condition cannot be re created in harmony with the law. Justice Harlan concurred in part with the court's opinion and dissented In part. Second, that the court below, in of de* to give effective force to our de cree in this regard, be directed to hear the parties, by evidence or otherwise as It may be deemed proper for the purpose of ascertaining and determin ing upon some plan or method of dis solving the combination and of recre ating, out of the elements now com posing it, a new condition which shall be honestly in harmony with and not repugnant to the law. Third, that for the accomplishment of these purposes, taking in view the difficulty of the situation, a period of six months is allowed from the receipt of our mandate, with leave, however, in the event in the judgment of the court below, the necessities of the sit uation require to extend such period to a further time not to excoed sixty days. Fourth, that in the event before the expiration of the period thus fixed a condition of disintegration in harmony with the law is not brought out, either ao the consequence of the action of the court in determining an issue on the subject or on accepting a plan agreed upon, it shall be the duty of the court, either by way of an injunction re straining the movement of the prod ucts of the combination in the chan nels of interstate or foreign commerce or by the appointment of a receiver, to give effect to the requirements of the statute. Pending the bringing about of the result, directed against the court each and all of the defendants, individuals as well as corporations, are to be re strained from doing any act which might further extend or enlarge the power of the combination, by any means or device whatsoever.

Presidential Palace Is Damaged and Rumors of Plot Fill the Air.— Soldiers Smoke Cigaret* Managua, Nica.—One hundred and fifty soldiers were killed and the presi dential palace and other buildings were damaged when Las Lomas, the fortifications overlooking the capital, were blown up. The wildest excitement prevails. Rumors everywhere are of a Liberal ist plot, aimed probably at the presi dential palace. Chances are even, however, that the explosion was caused by carelessness. The soldiers of the garrison are notoriously fool hardy, and have been known on many occasions to smoke cigarets within the Magazine. Las Lomas is a hill which is ths highest point of ground in the neigh borhood of the city. The fortifications there command the city, although they were of meagre proportions. A great trench surrounding the summit of the hill, barracks, a magazine, arsenal, a manufactory for cartridges, and a few small pieces of artillery comprised the entire equipment. The plant was gar risoned with about 200 soldiers. They were under the command of a brother of Luis Mena. Luis Jlena is secretary of war under the present regime, and the real power in the land, since the disestablishment of President Estrada and assumption of Adolfo Diaz. The hill is directly south of the city, and about a mile and a half from the lake. The presidential palace is the first structure between the garrison and the town, and is just beneath the shelter of its guns. About 15,000 rifles and a large quantity of powder were kept in the magazine. The nation is undergoing one of its frequent throes, the Liberalists, who are in the majority, having been oust ed from power, and the Conservatives taken the saddle. The question of church and state is the moving mo tive, the Liberals declaring for reli gious toleration and divorce of the civil and ecclesiastical functions of government. HARROUN WINS RACE. Marmon Car Victorious in Indianapolii Contest. Indianapolis, Indiana. For fame, fortune and the glory of the automo bile one life was sacrificed and several men were injured in the first 500-mile race on a speedway, the greatest test of skill and endurance in the history of the sport of motor racing, won by Ray Harroun, driving a Marmon car, in 6 hours 41 minutes and 8 seconds. Closely pressing Harroun for the vic tory were Ralph Mulford, with a Lo zier, who finished second, a^nd David Bruce-Brown, who drove his Fiat un der the wire a good third. At the end of the first 150 miles automobile race, one mechanician had been killed and a driver perhaps fatal ly Injured four of the forty ears lliat started had been withdrawn because of broken parts, and David Bruce Brown, driving a Fiat, was leading a long grind that promised to contipue to the end. S. P. Dickson, mechanician for Ar thur Grelner of Chicago, driving an Amplex car, lost his life in an upset on the back stretch in the thirtieth mile of the race. Greiner suffered sev eral broken ribs and perhaps a concus sion of the brain. Surgeons at the field hospital would not make a-state ment as to the probable outcome of his injuries. The accident was due to the car cast inga front tire. Greiner could not hold the car to the track and it skidded to the infield and whirled completely around, tearing off both back wheels. Dickson was thrown twenty feet against the fence. His body was ter ribly mangled. Greiner was hurled to the track. HAWLEY IS DEFEATED.

ISSUES $600,000,000 Extension of C., B. & Q. and Great Northern to 'Frisco—Deal Ap proaches Magnitude of North ern Securities Merger. St. Paul, Minn.—With the issue of $600,000,000 of Great Northern rail road bonds plans for a gigantic rail road deal, engineered by James J. Hill, were revealed. It means, declare those who are in touch with the immense transaction, the assumption by the Great Northern of control over a big part of the Chi cago, Burlington & Quincy system, construction of a Burlington extension from Denver southeast to San Fran cisco, divorce of the Great Northern from the Northern Pacific in the north and a new northern coast line for the Great Northern from the Twin Cities to San Francisco. This latter addition to the Great Northern service would be brought about by the extension of the Oregon Trunk line, already a Great Northern line, from Bend, Ore., to the Golden Gate by way of Sacra mento, and the taking over of the Se attle, Portland & Spokane road. Longest Road in World. The primary cause of the immense railroad deal, which will give the Great Northern more miles oi track age than any other railroad In the world, is said to be the failure of the Hill interests to control the Northern Pacific on which the Great Northern was forced to depend for a portion of its north line coast journey. Some thing like half the $600,000,000, it is understood, is to be spent in this northern country. Already 150 miles of construction work from the Colum bia river on to Bend, Ore., has been completed on the Oregon short line. This line, together with the Seattle, Portland and Spokane, would give the Great Northern its long cherished route right into 'Frisco through the northern states. To get control of the Burlington for its southern route, it is said authoritatively, that the Hill interests got many millions in Bur lington refund bonds where they wanted them. Recalls Northern Securities. Following is the account of the bond issue as carried by the Associat ed Press: "A move that is strongly suggestive hffrtf of railroad operations on the scale of the Northern Securities com pany was announced by J. J. Hill, chairman of the Great Northern Rail way company, today when in a type written statement he announced the execution of an $800,000,000 first and refunding mortgage to secure bonds lor the Great Northern and Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroads. The statement fallows: 'The Great Northern Railway com pany, as of date May, 1, 1911, has executed its first and refunding mort gage, securing a total authorized is sue of $600,000,000 bonds. "The size of the mortgage is ex plained by the fact that the outstand ing obligations of the company which are to be refunded amount, approxi mately, to $330,000,000. Included, how ever, in the figures last named is the direct and contingent obligation of the company on the Burlington joint four maturing in 1921 and aggregating $222,400,000. "Covering a future of fifty years, approximatedly $270,000,000 in bonds, therefore, will be available for gen eral corporate purposes, double-track ing and additional mileage. Since its beginning, thirty-two years ago, the Great Northern has expended be tween $350,000,000 and $400,000,000 out of capital and earnings. The pro vision made for the future in consider ation of the rapidly growing territory which Great Northern lines serve, would seem intelligently conservative. In no other part of the country has nature more generously bestowed those three great sources of all na tional wealth—the farm, the forest and the mine—and nowhere else is there more room for such develop ment as follows the occupation of a new country by an intelligent popu lation."

DIES ADJUSTING "OLD GLORY." Madison Man Climbs 256-foot Tower and Is Plunged to Earth. Madison, Wis. "It's a shame that flag is caught, I'll shin up and fix it so it will show up while the par ade goes by," said Frank Smith, a Milwaukee steel worker, member of a gang setting steel for the new Wiscon sin capitol. He climbed the great tower, 256 feet from the ground, and up the flagstaff, fixed the stars and stripes so that they blew out straight in the breeze, and then feel to instant death. Five thousand people, including Gov ernor McGovern, lined up for the start of the Decoration Day parade, saw the daring man make the ascent, adjust the flag, the folds of which had been caught in a guy rope and then saw him slide down the rope to a little platform. Here he missed his footing, fell be tween two planks, was seen to catch himself, hold on desperately with Ms hands and swing his feet in an attempt to reach a girder. Then his body came whirling through 256 feet of space to the concrete foundation. He leaves a wife and three little children. AEROPLANE BEATS AUTOMOBILE.

Criticizes |iam Jennings ididate of the the dominant \m in St. Paul, iesenting the est, the hero St. Paul. Col. Bryan, three times a| Democratic party, w* figure at the banquet 1 Before an audience Democracy of the Nor. of three Democratic campaigns, his voice possessing the inspiring music of old, his eye bright and his enthusi asm as keen as before, held his audi ence late in the night and compelled attention and interest by the sheer power of eloquence. Exerting the magnetism of the great orator, and combining with it a voice of exquisite timber, Colonel Bryan spoke to meet the interruption of ap plause only and held his audience as though he had been the first speaker instead of the last on a long and some what tedious program. Leaders in Evidence. And Colonel Bryan was not among ordinary speakers. The toastmaster, Martin J. Wade, is a speaker of ua usual eloquence and of ready wit. Governor Burke has been three times elected governor of his state as the result of his eloquence and address. Congressman Hammond is a speaker of more than ordinary ability and spoke on a subject which had about it more than ordinary interest. Jos eph W. Folk, expounding the Demo cratic doctrine of the elimination of protection, is a man of wide reputa tion and there attaches to him the added interest of his well-known and acknowledged candidacy for the presi dency. In F. A. O'Connor, the young Democratic leader from Iowa, the au dience had a speaker who spoke with fire and purpose. Yet among them all, Bryan was easily the master. The Democratic dinner, advertised as a harmony affair designed merely for the purpose of gathering North western Democrats, had appeared an aimless function. The only definite movement developed during the day was that in the interest of Governor John Burke, which expended itself in a meeting in the afternoon on the root garden on the Saint Paul hotel and had the nomination of John Burke for president as its ostensible aim. This was one of the incidents of the day, but above all this was the domi nating presence of Bryan. Where Bryan was, there was the center of attraction. When, accompanied by Governor Burke, Congressman Ham mond and Judge Wade, he left in an automobile for Minneapolis to visit John Lind, the Democrats watched him depart. Later in the afternoon, when he appeared in the lobby of the Saint Paul hotel, admirers thronged about him and shook his hand, while the famous Bryan smile worked over time. And at the Democratic dinner it was the same program over again and at every move of the Democratic meeting Bryan held the spotlight. Congressman W. S. Hammond was in evdence but put a damper on the boom started for him for governor by giving out an interview in which he said he was not a candidate for anything but thought he wbuld be a candidate for re-election to congress. "To Be or Not to Be." In his utterances, he was cryptic and non-committal. No one knows any more than before, whether or not Bryan will be a candidate again for the presidency, whether he will sup port Wilson, Joseph Folk or some other man. Hammond Hits Bryan. Congressman Hammond also paiu his respects in a subtle and indirect way to Colonel Bryan's strictures of the Democratic ways and means com mittee, of which Mr. Hammond is a member, for not putting wool on the free list, by entering a defense for the position of the house ways and means committee, saying it was fol lowing out the direction of the last Democratic national platform which Mr. Bryan is supposed to have dic tated over the long distance phone from his home in Lincoln.
