FORMAL DECISION IS PREPARED
Agrees with Interstate Commission
on Transcontinental Kates.
DISCRETION TO BE EXERCISED
Controversy Expected to Reach the
ORDERS TEMPORARILY ENJOINED
Jndgf Archibald Concur In Immune-
of Injunction, but Opinion
Hold Lung nail Short Ilnul
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14-In tho ma
jority opinion of the commerce court
formally handed down today In the trans
continental rate cases. It Is held that the
long and short haul provision of the In
terstate commerce act Is constitutional.
Judge Archibald concurs In the In
fluence of a temporary injunction of
orders of the Interstate commerce com
mission, but his opinion holds the long
and short haul provision to be Invalid.
The commerce court reached the con
dition that the cases involved In the
present proceeding afforded the best poe
Fiblo opportunity for a determination of
the constitutionality of the long and short
haul provision of the act to regulate
commerce. It was" realised that that
cjuestion eventually would have to be
fought out before the United States su
In the formal opinion, prepared by
Judge Mack, the commerce court not
only agrees with the Interstate Com
nierce commission that the long and
abort haul provision the fourth section
of the law Is constitutional but that it
would be unconstitutional, "us an Unlaw
ful delegation of legislative power," If
no standard were given "to guldo the
exercise of the commission's discretion
lu granting authority to depart from the
rule forbidding a lesser rate for the
long than for the short haul In the same
direction over tho same line."
By an exhaustive examination of the
ntlro law, howeyer, . the court reaches
the conclusion that it is the duty of the
ommission to exercise its discretion to
establish a lower rate for a longer haul
than for a shorter, If the conditions, In
its opinion, warrant such action.
The court points out that the orders
f tho commlss.on, which, as enjoyed,
"do not establish absolute rates for either
the long or short haul, but they do es
tablish a relation between any long haul
rate that a carrier may put Into effect
nd the short haul rate, determining that
Iiom one 1 the western short haul rate
shall not exceed the long haul, rate, and
. uat from rones 8, " and i the short haul
shall not ' exceed the. long haul rate by
more than 7 per cent, 16 per -ent and 24

State of South Dakota
Cannot Get All Good
. Land in Rosebud
tfURKK, S. D., Nov. II. (Special.)-A
visitor to the Roaebtid country nt this
time Would perhaps be surprised to learn
that none of the present furore in the
newspapers regarding the question as to
whether or not those who recently reg
istered for homesteads In Bennett and
Mellette counties wore up against n brace
game without a show to win, has pene
trated to the country under discussion.
Those who ate hero nnd know the con
ditions arc not worrying at all as to the
fitness of Mellette county for a white
man's country, nor doubting at all that
all of the nvalhihle land will be filed
upon next spring. Those of them who
have relatives In the ast who were
lucky enough to draw numbers are tun
ing them to get ready to come and make
entry and not get frightened oer the
reports in the newspapers.
The ruction started ' soon after ths
drawing when the disclosure was made
that the Ftate would select forty-one
sections as Indemnity school land before
the settlers had a chance to make their
selections. While this statement was
perfectly true,, and the state will flo that
very thing, there Is nothing In that fact
which should cause undue excitement or
discouragement to any of the prospect
ive homesteaders. It has been assumed
by some newspaper correspondents tthut
the state would go In and select all of
the best as school lands, thus leaving
none of the real cream of the country
for the settlers. There Is no occasion for
argument over this phase of the discus
sion. The law nnd the president's
proclamation very plainly state that the
state cannot tuko more thon two sections
as indemnity land In any one township.
Thus It is apparent nnd Indisputable that
the state will be compelled to take some
of the rougher lands.
The foolishness of the claim that there
will be nothing, left for the settlers when
the state gets through selecting Is shown
by the fact that while the state is en
titled to only fortone sections of In
demnity land, there are about 470 sections
of unallotted lands from which to make
the selections under the restrictions
above noted, which will leave about 430
sections, or 1,700 quarter-section farms,
for the new settlers. j

Mr( nriuck I heir Testimony
Aided lu Conviction.
JEFFERSON CITY. Mo., Nov. 11
The supreme court tf Missouri in an
opinion by Justice Graves today Bus
Mined tho decision of Special Commis
sioner Theodore Brace In his finding for
the ouster of the International Hnrx ester
Company of America.
Tho court not only misted the compuiiy
from Its right to do business in Missouri,
but imposed a fine of $"i0,000, conditioned
if the company pays the fine, separates
Itself from the International Harvester
Company of New Jersey, files a statement
of its business and shows to the 'court
that It will obey the law In the future,
it can be permitted, to continue to do
business In the state.
Tno Opinions Written.
Judges Lamm, Brown. Ferris and Wood
son concurred In the opinion by Judge
llraves. Chief Justice Valllant wrote an
opinion. It left the amount of tho fine
to be fixed by the court after the com
pany made a showing that il would com
ply with the law in the future. Judge
Graves sustained tho position of Special
Commissioner Brace on every contention.
The opinion found that competition was
lessened and that practically all of the
harvester business was done by the re
spondent company in the state. It held
that the plan Is contrary to the laws
of the state of Missouri for one company
to conduct the business of another, as In
this case, the New Jersey company hav
ing no license to do business In Missouri.
Opinion of Judge ; rates.
Discussing the case Judge Graves in
his opinion says: s
"The , respondent in thla case was a
part and parcel of this gigantic and
nt.arious tchemo. For some years it has
been the mere sales agent of the Inter
national Harvester company, the New
Jersey company. It was licensed in this
state to sell Its own goods, but It Is now
selling the goods of another.
"As such party to an unlawful arrange
ment or combination 1t should suffer tho
penalities prescribed by our laws.
"J have Indicated that we could temper

eu HutMMuieij- oust it irom the state and
In addition to fine it. -I think a condi
tional oufter Bhoiild go aid the respondent
be fined in the sum of .Mi,ooo for Its long
and continued Infraction of our laws,"
The court gave the harvester company
until January 1, 1!12. to pay tho fine of
tk.fOO, and until March 1. 1UI2, to with
draw from the New Jersey company and
to show the court that it Is an Inde
pendent company and will comply with
the Missouri laws. Falling In this the
ouster order will be signed by the court
Immediately after March 1.
History of Suit.
The International Harvester company
In September, 1910, was found guilty of
violating the Missouri anti-trust laws by
a commissioner appointed by the statu
supreme court. The case was submitted

to prevent all the companies which mnko
up tlie International from conducting
fur'ther business In the state.
