Chicago.—After a seven-hour confer
ence with William J. Bryan and John
W. Kern, respectively, democratic
nominees for president and vice presi
dent. the subcommittee of the national
democratic committee selected the
above list of officers for the committee.
It was the first time in many years
that a national chairman had been
selected by the democratic party only
after a bitter contest had been waged.
The choice of Mr. Mack was made pos
sible only after the New York lead- j
ers, Charles F. Murphy, of Tammany, j
and W. J. Connors, chairman of the |
state democratic committee had yield- i
ed to the personal desires of Mr.
When the democratic nominee for
president reached here Saturday, he'
was strongly in favor of Mr. Mack
for the place, but Mr. Bryan frankly
told the committee that he wished
them to consider all candidates and
make an appointment accordingly.
There were in the race besides Mr.
Mack. Judge M. J. Wade of Iowa, T.
E Ryan of Wisconsin, former Governor
James E. Campbell of Ohio, and Urey
Woodson. The sentiment for Mr.
Mack, however, steadily grew, but be
was confronted with a handicap, which
had to be removed. The well known
opposition of Messrs. Murphy and Con
nors toward him because of his rival
ry with Mr. Connors for the control of
Erie county stood in the way. The
long distance telephone was put into
play and Mr. Connors, after the situa
tion was explained, to him, declared
that he would no longer interpose any
objections, but Mr. Murphy's views
must first be obtained. The Tammany
leader gave his approval and with the
atmosphere thus cleared Mi. Mack
was elected by acclamation.
So pleased was Mr. Bryan that he
gave out a statement, in which he
openly announces that the appoint
ment is a recognition of the eastern
democracy and that a fight will be
made to carry New York.

COURT OF APPEALS KNOCKS OUT
JUDGE LANDIS REVERSED
His Conduct of the Famous Rebate
Case Is Severely Arraigned
and a New Trial Is
Chicago.—Federal judges in the
court of appeals lifted the burden
of a $29,240,000 fine from the shoul
ders of the Standard Oil Company of
Indiana Wednesday and reversed the
judgment of Judge Landis, by which
the heaviest fine ever imposed in a
federal court was saddled upon the oil
company found guilty on 1,462 counts
of accepting rebates from railroads.
Speedy rehearing of the case, which
has attracted widespread attention, is
considered improbable, and the coun
sel for the oil company contend that
a second conviction cannot be ob
The case was remanded with Instruc
tions that a new trial be held.
The jurists making up the court of
appeals are Judges Grosscup, Seaman
Judge Grosscup delivered the opin
ion of the court. Judges Baker and
Seaman concurring, and in sharp ar
raignment of the conduct of the trial
judge intimated that he may have
presumed to hold himself above the
Judge Landis Called Arbitrary.
The decision declares that the man
ner in which Judge Landis decided
upon the number of offenses that had
been committed by the defendant com
pany was arbitrary. It holds that
some other method than the one he
used should have been applied.
Then it passes to the amount of the
fine, which it declares was “sufficient
to have wiped out many times the
property of the defendant." The court
holds that the only company on trial
was the Standard Oil Company of In
diana. It says that this corporation
alone could be punished and that to
attempt to punish its holding corpora
tion would be to assert that a person
could be punished who was never be
fore the court or who had never stood
trial. This, the judges say, would be
to assert a startling principle of law.
Others Than Commerce Law.
The court declares that the ar
raignment of the violation of an inter
state commerce law was to be com
mended and that the results of such
violations were not too strongly stated.
It says, however, that the interstate
commerce law is not the only one in
the United States, and that it is be
cause there are others that the case
is reversed and remanded.
On the amount of the fine, the upper
“Did the court in the fine imposed
abuse its discretion? The defendant
indicted, tried and convicted was the
Standard Oil company, a corporation
of Indiana. The capital stock of this
corporation is fl,000,000. There is
nothing in the record in the way of
evidence that some of the assets of
the corporation were in excess of that
amount. It may therefore be safely
assumed that but for the relation of
the defendant to another corporation
not before the court, the court would
have measured out punishment on the
basis of the facts just stated.”
The judges then commented on the
punishment of the defendant in such a
large amount and continued, saying:
“Briefly stated, the reason of the
trial court for imposing this sentence
was because it was brought out on ex
amination that the capital stock of
the Standard Oil Company of Indiana
was principally owned by the New
Jersey corporation, a corporation not
before the court. The trial court, add
ing that in concessions of the charac
ter for which the defendant before the
court had been indicted, tried and
convicted, the New Jersey corporation
■was not a ‘virgin' offender.
“Can an American judge, without
abuse of judicial discretion, condemn
anyone w’ho has not had his day in
court? That to our minds, is strangc
doctrine in Anglo-Saxon jurispru

Newport, R. I. — Pleading for

broad, general way, the future United
The president spoke publicly for
more than half an hour, and then the
conference went Into executive ses
sion for one hour. During this session
the president took a leading part in
the discussion, lie argued as a lay
man, he explained, and did not attempt
to give advice to professional men. He
impressed upon the officers, however,
that it was given to them to keep the
American navy abreast of the times
and to make it the hardhitting, effi
cient fighting force which he believes
to be a guarantee against the possi
bility of war. Mr. Roosevelt charac
terized the navy as the cheapest form
of safety insurance policy the nation
can obtain. The president sailed for
Oyster Bay in the afternoon, but the
battleship conference will continue
here and in Washington until definite
plans for the ships to be laid down
in the near future are decided upon.
