POINT FOR STANDARD Oil Trust Has One of Its Cases Thrown Out of an Ohio Court. JUDGE SAYS NO JURISDICTION Doe Not Help the Trust Much, far the Indictments Still Hang Ovrr lu Head. Findlay, 0., Dec. 25. The Standard Oil company won a victory In common pleas court here when Judge W. 8. Duncan decided that the probate court had no Jurisdiction in the suit brought against it in the probate court, and threw out the recent verdict of guilty against the company. Prosecutor Da vid some time ago tiled an lnforma tion In the probate court against the Standard, charging It with violating the anti-trust laws of the state. He maintained that he could get action quicker against the company by this proceeding than through indictments in tho common pleas court. Itoi-kelVUer Indictments Stand. The Standard attorneys contended that the probtite court had no Jurisdic tion In tlie matter; that If there had I'een a violation of the law the prose cutor should have proceeded against the company through indictments. This po'tit was upheld by Judge Duncan, lunj the case Is thus thrown out of the probate court. Tills decision in no way nitccts the Indictments recently re turned in common pleas court by the grand Jury against John D. Itocke feller nnd the other otlicials of the Standard Oil company, charging them with violating tlie anti-trust laws. None of the Standard otlicials was In court when tho decision was rendered, hut tlie company was represented by its attorneys. It is understood that the prosecution will appeal the case to n higher court. Provision Not In the Statute. Judge Duncan, In rendering his de elclon. said In part: "The court of common pleas has power to review pro ceedings and Judgments of the probate court in misdemeanor cases, under sec tion 7r.."rt revised statutes, although the two courts may have concurrent orig inal Jurisdiction therein. The probate criminal coile containing no provision whereby service may bo hnd upon a corporation the probtite court has no Jurisdiction to try either an Individual or a corporation under the Valentine anti-trust law.
