WASHINGTON. Sept. 23-Recent re
ports to the effect that attorneys tor
large combinations of corporations and
their principals also were hoping for some
general understanding with ' the govern
ment authorities concerclng the applica
tion of the anti-trust law and that some
of them had gone to the attorney general
to ascertain what action, If any, may be
necessary to make them stand right In
the eyes of the government was the sub
ject of much discussion here today.
The Associated Press la in a position to
state the following as the attitude or
the Department of Justice:
The position of the attorney general
Is that since the decisions of the supreme
court In the oil and tobacco cases, to
quote the language employed by him In
his speech at Battle Creek. Mich., . the
area of uncertainty In the law has been
greatly reduced and the meaning of the
statute In Its application of great mono-
pollstio corporations made clear, and this
makes it necessary for those combina
tions to resolve themselves Into a number
of distinct separate entitles, no one of
which will be In itself a combination In
restrain of trade or threaten monopoly.
How this shall be done Is, of course, a
separate problem In each case a problem
which, In the first Instance, those In con
trol. of the combinations and their counsel
must work out.
Ifot Adviser of Trnats.
I "The law department of the government
cannot undertake to act aa -universal
counsel for the trusta It Is preparing to
bring before the court all the combina
tions which appear In clear violations of
the law. If the courts agrees with the
government's views they will doubtless
follow the precedents set by the supreme
court In the tobacco case, and by the
United States circuit court In the Third
circuit In the powder case, and decree
the combination to be Illegal and give to
it a reasonable time, to reorganize In con
formity with the law, under penalty of In
junction or receivership If It should tail
to do so.
"The plan of reorganization must be
such as the government may acquiesce
In; or It would be compelled to oppose Its
approval by the court But the final ap
proval Is for the court to make.
Harvester Caae Cited.
"In the case ot the Harvester company,
that corporation voluntarily submitted to
the government Its plan ot reorganization
before suit was brought, and while not
going so far aa the officials of the De
partment of Justice considered It should
go, the representatives of the Harvester
company evinced a willingness to con
form, It possible, to the views of the
department and to make such changes as
It should deem necessary to comply with
"In some cases, such as the suits
against the combinations of the electric
light manufacturers and the Southern
Wholesale Grocery association, the de
fendants as soon as petitions were filed,
evinced a willingness to comply with the
lew and submitted proposed reorganiza
tions and tendered a form of decree whteh
thy were willing to have tiie court enter
against them. It Is understood that nego
tiations respecting such decree have been
completed and at the next terra of court
the defendants will appear and agree to
the entry of judgments granting all relief
the government could ask as the result ot
Mar Submit Plans.
"If other combinations should take Uke
action and submit to the Department of
Justloe plans of reorganization which
should In good faith bring about a com
pi titlve condition and terminate monopo
listic conditions and also all agreements
unduly restraining Interstate trade and
commerce, the Department of Justice
would doubtlesa give them careful consid
eration and if found to be adequate would
submit them to the courts on an appro
priate petition, the decree of the court
to be so framed as to make provision for
a plan binding on the defendants and ad
join them from further monopolistic ef
"But the burden of framing such plans
and of demonstrating their sufficiency
and adequacy must be assumed by those
interested in the combinations and not by
officials of the Department of Justice1."
