HEAVY PENALTIES IMPOSED UP
ON KANSAS CITY CONCERNS.
ONE FIRM OUSTED FROM STATE
Charter of People's Ice, Storage and
Fuel Company Revoked for Violat
ing Missouri Anti-TruBt Law De
fendants Assessed Costs of Trial.
Kansas City, May 15. Walter A.
Powell, Judge of the circuit court at
Independence, Mo., lined the following
named companies, recently found
guilty of maintaining a trust to regu
late tlio production and price of Jce
at Kaunas City: People's Ice, Storago
und Fuel company, $15,000; Central
Ice company ?8,000; Kansas City
liiuwci'ioH company, $5,000; Vnndor-wlyco-Lynds
Ice company, $4,500.
Uesido being fined the charter of
the People's Ice, Storago and Fuel
company was revoked and the con
cern prohibited from doing business In
the state. This Is one of the largest
companies in the city. The Inst named
three companies were ordered to quit
furnishing Ico to the People's com
pany, and the Pcople'H company was
restrained from receiving' any more
ice from them In fulfillment, of exist
ing contracts. The costs of the trial
were assessed equally upon the four
defendants. If the Ceuttal, Kansas
City and Vandcrslyce-Lynds compan
ies fall to pay their lines and other
wise comply with the orders of tho
court within fifteen days their chart
ers are also to bo forfeited.
In urging the court to assess heavy
punishment, Prosecutor Klmbrell said
the punishment should not only be for
past offenses, but should also bo a
warning to these and other companies
in tho future. In view of the largo
0 mount or profits that, he asserted,
the People's company had Illegally
taken from the public during the ex
istence of the trust, ho urged that
that company be lined $25,000. Tho
People's company, argued Mr. Klm
brell, -"could pay a line of $25,000
every year and continue to do bus!-,
iioss without feeling the loss. This
company can never do business legal
ly. It was conceived In sin and born
