trary to Precedents.
WASHINGTON. Msy 25. Associate Jus
tlco John Marshall Harlan today filed In
the supreme court his formal dlaeentlng
opinion In the Standard Oil case. Not sat
isfied with his oral dissent from the court's
decision as handed down by Chief Justice
V. hlte. Justice Harlan entirely rewrote the
stenographic report of his remarks from
the bench. The oral dissent formed merely
a framework for the final document, con
taining about 1,000 words, put on record
Justice Harlan brands as mischievous the
modification made by the court In the de
cree of the lower court permitting sub
sidiary corporations of the Standard Oil
after dissolution of the combination to
make "normal and lawful agreement"
among themselves. Chief Justice Whits
had characterised this modification as a
" nilnor matter."
The further declaration Is made by Jus
tice Harlan that he la convinced the court's
opinion "will throw the business of .the
country Into contusion and Invite widely
extended and harassing litigation, the In
jurious effects of which will be felt for
many years to come."
In. connection with what he terms, a
"mischievous modification" Justice Harlan
quotes the chief Justice as saying that "it
does not necessarily follow that because
an Illegal restraint of trade or an attempt
to monopoloie or a monopolisation resulted
from the combination and the transfer of
the stocks of the subsidiary corporations
to Ihe New Jersey corporation, that a like
restraint of trade or attempt to monopo
lise or monopolization would necessarily
arise from agreementa between one or more
of the subsidiary corporations after the
transfer of the stock by the New Jersey
"A etherises Doe Restraint."
"Taking this language In connection with
other ' parts . of the opinion," aaya Justice
Harlan, "the- subsidiary companies are
thus In effect Informed unwisely, I think
that although the New Jersey corporation
being an Jl legal combination must go out
of existence -they may, Join tn an agree
meal to restrain commerce among the
states'. If such . restraint- be not "undue.' "
A In his oral remarks Justice Harlan
devotes himself largely to criticism of the
court for holding that not every restraint
of trade violates the law. He reiterates
thatthe court reversed its former rulings
tn the Transmlssourl freight and Joint
traffic association cases. Quoting several
hundred words from each of these opin
ons. Justice Harlan says:
"These utterances show, so clearly and
affirmatively as to admit of no doubt, that
this court, many years ago, on the fullest
consideration Interpreted the anti-trust act
as prohibiting and making Illegal not
only every contract or combination in
whatever form waa In restraint of inter
state commerce without regard to its rea
sonableness or unreasonableness, but all
monopolies or attempt to monopolise any
part of such trade or commerce."
Jnese Tatt's Decision Cited.'
Justice Harlan, referring to other de
cisions as bearing out his Interpretation
of these decisions, calls particular attention
to one of Judge Taft, now president. In the
Add y stone Pipe case.
"Judge Taft said," continued Justice Har
lan, "that according to the decision of this
court In the freight association case 'con
tracts In restraint of Interstate transporta
tion were within the statutes whether the
restraints could be regarded as reasonable
at common law or not.' "
The Justice In further support of the
statement that the whole country Including
the court and congress understand that
"every" restraint waa prohibited, quotes
at length from an adverse report made In
1901 by Senator Nelson on behalf of the
senate Judiciary committee In reference to
a bill, proposing to amend the Sherman
anti-trust law to distinguish between rea
sonable and unreasonable restraints.
"On reading the opinion Just delivered,"
Justice Harlan adds, "the first inquiry
would be that as the court is unanimous
In holding that the particular things done
by the Standard Oil company and lta sub
sidiary companies, In this case were Illegal
under the anti-trust act, whether those
things were In reasonable or unreasonable
restraint of lnterstata commerce, why was
It necessary to make elaborate argument

CRITICISM Or ROOSEVELT
John W. Foster's Address Feature of
Lake Mohonk Conference.
EX-PRESIDENT IS INCONSISTENT
Recent Utterances Against Arbitra
tion Are Severely Condemned,
While Hie Work for Peace
Is Pralsi. I
MOHONK LAKE, May 28. Severe crit
icism of Theodore Roosevelt's recent public
utterances regarding International arbitra
tion marked the speech of John.W. Foster,
former secretary of state, today before the
seventeenth annual . meeting of . the . Lake
Mohonk conference on International arbi
tration. "At the . same time," . aald Mr.
Foster, "notwithstanding Mr. Roosevelt's
early declaration In opposition to arbitra
tion In general, he has done more than
any one living te' advance this cause."
The Anglo-American treaty of arbitra
tion, Ur Foster amid, could have no ap
preciable effect on he aementa: . of the
World, and that at present Germany could
hardly be expected 4o become a party to a
like treaty. Nevertheless, "as .unlimited
arbitration la extended among the nations
Its beneficial effect must become more and
more apparent, and even the German gov
ernment must eventually find a nodus
vlvendl with the peaceful nations which
will enable It to restrict Its armament and
cease to be a menace to the world.
"I had concluded the preparation of my
address at this point when the fulmlnatlon
of Theodore Roosevelt appeared in the pub
lic press. While I regard Its appearance
as tending to embarrass the action of the
senate, I realize the fact that no man In
public life today has shown such an erratlo
and Inconsistent course In relation to the
subject of International arbltatlon. His
early public career was marked by a strong
hostility to arbitration In general, in a
magazine article as late as 1896 he attacked
President Harrison for submitting the
Bering sea question to arbitration.
When he assumed the responsibility of
the presidency it waa he who sent the first
case to The Hague court of arbitration and
invited the nations In hostile array against
Venezuela to resort to the same court.
"In the first Instance he proposed to
settle the Alaskan boundary dispute by
sending the American army to occupy and
hold the territory by force, but finally
yielded to the pacific advice of Secretary
Hay and In 1903 submitted the question to
the London commission.
"Notwithstanding his early declaration In
opposition to arbitration; he has done more
than any other living man to advance this
cause and has well earned the Nobel peace
prize. Judging the future by the past,
we may expect this erratlo, but patriotic
citizen to fall lit line with the onward
march towards international peace and
give his support to the great measure
which most enables the adailnlstratlon of

S. L. Von Puhl of St Louis Shot Three
Times in Dispute Over a Woman
Two Bystanders Wounded.
DENVER, May 26.-S. L. ("Tony") Von
Puhl of St. Louis, who was shot three
times by F. Harold Hen wood here last
night, following a quarrel, died shortly
before noon today. A charge of murder
will now be placed against Henwood, who
Is In Jail.
A quarrel, presumably starting over a
woman and continuing over the merits of
different brands of champagne, resulted
in a triple shooting shortly before mid
night last night In the barroom of the
Brown Palace hotel
Frank H. Henwood. an agent of the
Globe Blow Oas company of New York,
did the shooting. 8. L. (Tony) Von Puhl

, J. W. Atkinson of Colorado Springs, a
wealthy contractor, was shot In the left
leg and G. E. Copeland, a mining man' of
Victor, Colo., received two bullets, one In
the left leg and the other In the abdomen.
Atkinson and Copeland were bystanders
and had nothing to do with the quarrel.
Tbey will recover.
Henwood Is In Jail and will be held pend
ing the outcome of his victims' injuries.
According to Henwood, he and Von Puhl
met only yesterday. A quarrel In which
the name of an actress was used started
later and resulted In Henwood callllng
Von Puhl a liar. Von PuM's Instant reply
was a smash to Henwood's face which sent
him reeling. The latter then drew a re
volver and emptied Its five chambers.
Friends of both men stats the quarrel
really started over a Denver society
Von Puhl has been In Denver several
days endeavoring to arrange for a balloon
flight, crossing the Rockies. He holds a
number of balloon records. Including the
speed record for long flights, having made
the distance from t. Louis to Charleston,

we protested," said a member of the exe

"The organization has been dragged Into
politics and movements started by people
who want newspaper notoriety, the club
being dragged In each time. This has gone
far enough and we will file protests strong
enough to keep the organization out of the
alleged home protectors' brigade."
