HE DEFENDS THE ORO^'ZOTI Statement Issued in Connection with the Government's Suit to Dis solve International Hat*. vester Company. The government filed a dissolution suit in the federal court at St. Paul, Minn., April 30, against the Interna tional Harvester company, allesins violation of the Sherman law atid mak ing the general charges that are cus tomary in a bill of this kind, and ask ing for whatever r.-liefs are C3tisid ered necessary by the court. The bill is a very long onp and therefore o.'.'r not. be reproduced, but i! sets fo.tX in effect, Unit tlie Harvest, cjtii|. :::y is a monopoly in restraint of tra(ic, has used oi pressive itv.'Mie.ds in forc ing its agents to handle i's sreods ex clusively, etc. To ther.e charges Pres ident MeConniclt has made the fol lowing reply: "The International Harvester case differs radically in its facts from all the so-called •trust' cases heretofore decided under the Sherman law. The International Harvester company was organized in 1902 for the purpose of securing economy in the manufacture and sale of harvesting machinery, and of increasing the foreign trade. It had no water in its capitalization, and it has earned only a reasonable return on its capital,—less than 7 per cent per annum on the average. The prices of Its machines are now substantially the same as in 1002, notwithstanding an increase of 15 per cent in raw ma terial prices and 30 per cent in wages. The company has caused a large sav ing to American farmers in the cost of agricultural implements. It has in creased the foreign trade in agricul tural implements four-fold in nine years its foreign sales in 1911 were over $42,000,000. It has not sold cheap er abroad than at home. Us treatment of its- customers, its employes, its agents and its competitors has been in accord with the highest standard of ethics and honorable business meth ods. To the farmers it has given bet ter service and bettor machines to agents and dealers, a less hazardous and fluctuating business and ta its em ployes it has given higher u-ages. im proved and sanitary wcrkivg e.mo tions, insurance agi.inst. ac ci'ient and old age, anj sh.r.e :i ulits. "The rlia:• c!" rriscor.i!. :-t '••'i the 1 ill have bten rje* ar.u dut S::v,vrU by t'.'.o c»:i!i! any in oi 'tv ca? S tiio.v will a?-.mi !':.:1. 1.-cause tU-y are untrue. Tile sr -reti:e court of Missouri, in suit i.i which th.so charges were fully sonc into, said "'On the whole, the evidence shows that the International Harvests com pany has not used its po.ver to oppress or injure the farmers who are its cus tomers." "And again "'The price of harvesting machines has not increased in proportion to the increased cost of construction or the increased merit of the machines, and respondent has brought other farm im plements into trade." "'The evidence also shows that the machines manufactured oy the Inter national Harvester company have been greatly improved in quality and the item of repair material has been re duced In price and placed within closer reach of the farmer.' "The organizers of this company acted under the advice of able counsel, and in the sincere belief that they were violating no law. If under later decisions it should be held that th: law was violated, it could only through the creation of a power to op press which has never been exercised. "More than six years ago the com pany asked for its investigation by the United States government, and opened all its books and records for inspec tion, and furnished all information re quested. No suggestion of any change In its business methods has been made to it by the government at any time. Recently, a full and frank discussion of the whole situation has been had between the representatives of the gov ernment and the company, in an hon eBt desire upon both sides to avoid litigation. Some plan may yet be found which will obviate the necessity of any protracted litigation by satis fying the claims made under the Sher man act without seriously impairing the economic advantages and benefits secured by the organization of this company. No fo.-m of reorganization, however, was suggested by the govern ment which seemed practically pos rible. "The government has been careful to avoid embarrassment to the foreign business from the litigation the bill makes no attack upon, and seeks .no ohange In. the export business of the company. The filing of the bill will In no way Interfere with the company's carrying on its business the same as heretofore."
