Penalty for Restraint of Commerce,
Unfair Business and Interlocking
Directorates Ample Provisions
Made for Trade Commission.
Washington, Jan. 23. Thu adminis
tration's trust bills, embodying the
program laid down by tho president In
his recnt ineBBUgo, have been presum
ed to congress.
The bills have received the approval
of Mr. Wilson and tho Democratic
leaders of both houses of congress.
With llttlo modification they will be
enacted Into law. Their purposes are:
1. Definition of unlawful monop
oly or restraints of trade.
12. Prohibition of unfair trade
3. Creation of ati interstate
trade commission.
4. Regulation of corporation dl
doctorates and prohibition of in
terlocking directorates.
Unlawful Monopoly Defined.
Unlawful monopoly is dutlned as
any combination or agreement be
tween corporations, llrms, or persons
designed for the following purposes:
1. To create or carry out re
strictions in trado or to acquire a
monopoly in any Interstate trade,
business, or commerce.
2. To limit or reduce tho pro
duction or increase the price of
merchandise or of any commodity.
3. To prevent competition in
manufacturing, making, transport
ing, Belling, or purchasing of mer
chandise, produce, or any com
4. To make any agreement, en
ten into any arrangement, or ar
rive at any understanding by
which thoy, directly or Indirectly,
undertake to prevent a free and
unrestricted competition t among
themselves1 or among any pur
chasers or consumers in the sale,
production, or transportation of
any product, article, or commod
ity. The penalty for violation of the law
(s fixed at not more than $5,000 or Im
prisonment for one year or both.
Guilt is made personal through a
ectlon that whenever a corporation
hall be guilty of the violation of the
law the offense shall be deemed to
cover the Individual directors, officers,
and agents of such corporation, as
authorizing, ordering, or doing the
prohibited acts, and they shall bo pun
ished as prescribed above.
A ' paragraph prohibiting 'holding
companies is to be added to this meas
ure. Covert Unfair Trade Practices.
The bill forbidding unfair trade
practices declares that to discriminate
in price, between different purchasers
of commodities, with the purpose or
Intent to injure or destroy a competi
tor, either of the purchaser or of the
seller, shall be deemed an attempt to
monopolize Interstate commerce.
It is specifically declared that, the
law is not Intended to prevent" dis
crimination In price between purchas
ers of commodities "on account of
difference In the grade, quality, or
quantity of the commodity sold, or
that makes only due allowance for
difference In the cost of transporta
tion." Further, it Is prescribed that noth
, lng contained In the act shall prevent
persons from selecting their own cus
tomers, "but this provision shall not
authorize the owner or operator of
any mine engaged In selling Its prod
uct in Interstate or foreign comjnerco
to refuse arbitrarily to sell the same
to a responsible person, firm, or cor
poration, who applies to purchase."
An attempt at monopoly also is de
clared to exist for any person to make
a sale of goods, wares, or merchandise
or fix a price charged therefor, 'or dis
count from or rebate upon such price,
on the condition or understanding
that the purchaser thereof Bhall not
deal In the goods, wares, or merchan
dise of a competitor or competitors of
the seller.
Deals With Damage Suits.
A Judgment against any defendant
In a suit brought under the anti-trust
law the bill provides shall constitute
as against such defendant conclusive
evidence of the same facts and be
conclusive as to tho same Isbucb of
law In favor of any other party In any
other proceeding brought under and
Involving the provisions of the law.
For the benefit of parties Injured in
their business or property, by any per
son or corporation found guilty of vio
lating the law the statute of limita
tions applicable to such cases shall be
Injunctive relief Is accorded against
threatened loss or damage by a viola
tion of tho act under the same condi
tions and principles that Injunctive re
lief against threatened conduct which
will cauBe loss or damage is granted
by courts of equity.
It is required that a proper bond
hall be executed against damages for
an injunction improvldently granted,
and It must be shown that tho danger
of Irreparable loss or damage is im
mediate. Hits Interlocking Directorates.
Concerning directorates, tho bill on
that subject, which Is to beconio ef
fective two years from date of ap
proval of the act, provides:
"No person engaged as an Individ
ual or as a member of a partnership
or as a director or other ofllcer of a
corporation in the business of soiling
i'allronil cars or locomotives, or rail
road rails or structural steel, or min
ing or selling coal, or conducting a
bank or trust company, shnll act us a
director or other officer or employe of
nny railroad or other public servlco
corporation which conducts an Inter
state business.
"No person shall at tho same time
be n director or other ofllcer or em
ploye In two or moro federal reserve
linnks, nntlonnl bunks, or banking as
sociations, or other bunks or tniRt
companies which nre members of nny
reserve hank; nnd a private hanker
and n person who is n director In any
stuto bank or trust company not oper
ating under tho provisions of the re
cent currency law shnll not he eligible
to perve us a director In nny bunk or
banking association or tniBt company
operating under the provlblons of the
Vlolntlon of these sections Is made
punishable by a fine of $100 a day, or
by Imprisonment not exceeding one
year, or both.
If any two or more corporations
have common director or directors,
tho fact shall bo conclusive evidence
that them exists a real competition
between such corporation and such
elimination of competition shall be
construed us u restraint of Interstate
trado and be treated accordingly.
The trade commission bill provides
for commission of five members, with
the commissioner of corporations ns
chairman, nnd transfers all tho exist
ing powers of tho bureau of corpora
tions to the commission.
The principal 'and most Important
duty tho commission besides conduct
ing Investigations will be to aid the
courts when requested In tho forma
tion of decrees of dissolution.
With this In view, the bill empow
ers he court to refer any part of pend
ing ll.tlgutlon to the commission, In
cluding the proposed decree, for infor
mation and advice.
Much Criticism for Bills.
The trust bills as framed will be
the subject or sharp criticism on tho
part of progressives of all parties who
claim they do not go far enough. It
will be declared that the definition of
monopoly remains inadequate that the
prohibition of unfair trade practice
does not cover this evil In our econ
omic life that interlocking stock con
trol is not covered and that the pow
ers of the proposed trade commission
are insufficient.
It Is interesting to note that the
proposal to place the burden of proof
upon a combination believed to be vio
lating the law hus been omitted. No
attempt Is made to prevent or destroy
monopoly based on patents. The great
est difficulty exerienced in the effect
ive enforcement of the law has been
found to be In the unwillingness of
the courts to impose Jail penalty. It
remains optional under the proposed
measures wiht the courts to fine or
Trade Board May Disappoint.
In connection with the trade com
mission President Wilson declared in
his message that the country "de
mands such a commission only as an
Indispensable instrument of Informa
tion and publicity aa a clearing house
for the facts by which both the pub
lic mind and the managers of great
business undertakings should be
The bill prescribes that the commis
sion acts are to constitute a "public
record" but the body Is authorized
to make public the information "in
such form and to such extent as may
be necessary" or "by direction of the
attorney general."
It Is apparent that the publU mind
cannot be guided unless it has the
facts, and then It will not get unless
the commission or the attorney gen
eral deems It politic.
In other words, public hearings will
not bo held as they are held by the
interstate commerce commission.
Settlement of Differences.
The most Important feature of the
bill Is that which legalizes the policy
of the administration of terminating
an unlawful condition by agreement
between tho combination attacked and
tho attorney general.
This feature Is comprehended under
a section which requires the commis
sion, upon the request of the attorney
general or any corporation affected,
to Investigate whether a combination
is violating tho law. In case the com
mission should find the violation to
exist it must teport to the attorney
general a statement of the objection
able acts and transactions and the
readjustments necessary for tho of
fending combination to conform to
the law.
These conclusions are to be "ad
visory to the attorney general in ter
minating by agreement with the cor
poration affected or by suing the said
unlawful conduct or condition."
In other words, whatever may be
the agreement made by the attorney
general with the combination Investi
gated, it will give the reorganized
combination legal standing, so long as
It conforms to the term of the agree
ment. Thus it Is proposed to place by law
a tremendous power In the hands of
the attorney general. This power has
been assumed to attorneya general,
and particularly so by Mr. McRey
nolds; Will Give Courts Advice.
In a statement accompanying the
bill made by Congressman Clayton,
chairman of tho house Judiciary com
mittee, it is said that the "principal
and most Important duty of tho com
mission, besides conducting Investiga
tions, will bo to aid the courts, when
requested, In tho formation of decrees
of dissolution,

PAQUIN, who delights In surprising
ub with novel and Intricate gowns,
sometimes charms us with the sim
plest of creations which still embody
the stamp ot Paquin distinction. Ono
of the latter is pictured In the illus
tration here. The skirt Is of black
charmeuse with a little coatee of
black velvet and a bodice of plaited
The skirt is a marvel of clever ad
justment to the lines of the figure by
means ot shaping and the least possi
ble draping. It is made in one with
the corsage which includes the little
coat and bodice effect. A more prac
tical development of the toilette would
manage to make the coat separate,
because It could be removed indoors
or worn as a separate coat with other
gowns. ,
The coat Is trimmed with fashion
able skunk fur in a fine silky grade.
This fur varies bo much In quality that
some sklnB are worth twice as much
and more than others. It la used on
practically every outside garment
which women wear.
This gown should be chosen by
those of plump figure who wish to
wear velvet Like other pile fabrics
velvet must be carefully managed and
APPARENTLY the combination of
white with black crepe haB come
to stay. In those shops that special
ize In this branch of apparel one sees
a great deal ot whlto crepe used In
millinery. In the winter time It ap
pears in facings or borders, or in
made ornaments. It Is In facing hats
of black crepe that It Is best liked.
For summer mourning, white crepe
is used more extensively. All-white
hats, and combinations of black and
white crope, in which the latter pre
dominates, gives ub a new kind of
mourning millinery 'in which it Is pos
sible to be comfortable and to look
cool as well.
The method of draping veils varies
with the season and with Ideas that

ceed In remaining there. The veil ot
crepe Is only moderately long now

the back. It may bo widened to

to hang straight down.

Gown by Paquin
Is best made up along plain and s
vero lines, like those shown In the
model pictured.
There Is not much warmth in an
outside garment which leaves th
chest uncovered, and therefore simi
lar little coats are shown with wide,
revers to turn forward when one la
outdoors and away from the chest In?
doors. But the lovely Paquin model,,
which we are studying, was not de
signed so much with reference to Its
practical side as to its picturesque
and novel appearance. The clever banj
dling of tho fastening In front, whero
ribbon is wrapped about the fur and
we arc left to wonder how thq wear
er gets into or out of the gown, is
most attractive.
The standing and full riff of tulle
is a wonderful touch In the finishing
of the costume.
In keeping with it, and not taking
the attention r.t all, the fur trimmed
turban of black velvet with its little
nosegay of gay flowers is just the hat
for this gown. The ensemble leaves
nothing to be desired, It Is simple
enough to please the most quiet taste
and distinctive enough to suit the
most discriminating dresser.
as a veil but as a part ot the com
position of hats for first mourning.
Small face-veils of net, with narrow
border of crepe are supplied on the
models that carry the long crepe veils.
All models in mourning millinery are
made up In the fashionable shops In
either white or black, except In cases
where the character of the design
calls for a combination of the two or
for one color alone.
The manufacture of crepe has been
so perfected that It has become prac
tical for peoplo of moderate means.
The waterproofing processes have
made it among the most durable of
fabrics instead ot fragile, as it uspd
to bo. Wo are Indebted to the Eng
lish manufacturers for this fine
achievement. Crepe used to be a
luxury which only rich people could
really afford.
Comforter Slip.
Make your comforter in tho UBua'i
way, using white cheesecloth next to
the cotton. Take your sllkollne or
other goods; steam it up in tho usual
way, sewing tho edges together to-'
form a slip; now slip It on tho white
comforter and tie enough to hold it in
place. When comforter becomes soiled,
take the slip off and launder; hang
tho cotton on the line. Deat lightly,
with the carpet beater; you will havo
a clean comforter without tho usual'
hard labor of lifting a heavy wet
comforter, and your cotton will stay,
soft and fluffy much longer. Los An

but for voluntary contributions and
membership fees.
"Tho same legislature appropriated
four times as much money, or $28,000,
to cultivate fish In little ponds," said
Mr. Webster, "and four times as much,
