defense began this morning In the summing
up before Special Commissioner E. A. An
thony of the state's ouster suit against
the Standard. Republic and Waters-Pieree
Oil companies. It Is expected that counsel
for the defendant companies will occupy
the entire day and that Attorney General
Hadley will conclude his presentation of
the state's contentions tomorrow.
Attorney Frank Hagerman of Kanaas
City, representing the Interests of tha
Standard of Indiana and the Republic OH
companies, made the opening addreaa for
the defenae. He was followed by Judge
Henry 8. Priest of St. Louis, representing
the Waters-Pierce Oil company. The de
fenae contends that the evidence In the
cam falls to show that there was any
agreement to fix the prices of oil and that
the mere division of trade territory Is not
In violation of any statutory act, but is
a well recognised' principle of all estab
lished busineaa. Attorney Hagerman read
all of the sections of the anti-trust stat
ute and declared that the Information of
the attorney general waa fatally defective
In that It failed to specify tha overt acta
alleged to be In violation of the law.
