The SUel Trait' Defense.
It Jiaa not been supposed that the
United Bute 8teel corporation would
Dlead-guilty to th government'
charge "of maintaining a monopoly,
therefore no disappointment or sur
prise la occasioned by Its defense. Th

solve It, set forth that It was or

It has never aimed at or accom

tion, and that Is not operating In
violation of the federal anti-trust
On July 1, 1911, Commissioner of
Corporation Herbert Knox Smith
filed an exhaustive report with the
Department of Commerce and Labor,
setting forth the result of ft long In
vestigation calculated to determine
whether, or not the .United State
Steel corporation, was a monopoly
operating la restraint of trad. He
first took up th "ruling motive" of
tb process of Integration by which
th trust waa formed. .and thla ruling
motive b found to b "lb removal
of competition. " This removal of com
petition was effected principally by
'tb restriction of competition

tb time of It formation th United
State Steel corporation, Mr. Smith's
risport shows, controlled about two-
tblrds of th country' production of
crud steel and from one-half to four-
fifth of th principal rolled at eel
product. , It comprised ore. -coal.
Ilmestnne, natural gas, railway and
steamship companies, blaat furnace,
teal works, roUto mill, finishing
plant and various other propertle.
"It was thoroughly- Integrated

OMAHA. Neb.. Jan. S.-To the Editor of
the Be: In yoor paper of January ap
peared an editorial In regard to Jury trials
before th police magistrate in which you
charge that these Juries were authorized
by th democratic delegation from this
county, and that th clause providing tor
pollc court Juries Was a Joker carefully
hidden ia the meases of an apparently
innocent bill. ' Kindly let me assure you
that you are misinformed as to both of
the abov 'statements. 1 drew that bill
and asked Honorable John H. Grossman
to Introduce it. When the bill waa tip
before the Judiciary committee ' of th
reuse, Mr. Grossman asked me to appear
and explain t!ie bill, which t did. Honor
able 1$. B. Quackrnbusb asked me tf the
bill under consideration compiled with the
provisions of the constitution, fwlt: "The
i right of trial by Jury shall remain invio
late, but the legislature may authorise
trial by Jury of less number than twelve
men. In courts Inferior to the district
court." The hill aa It then stood did
not permit of a Jury trial hi any rase. 1
frankly admitted that I did not bellevft the
bill aa It then stood compiled with th
constitution, and explained that the bill
in that respect had been drawn aa the law
existed In cities of the metropolitan class.
He assured me that be knew that It waa
unconstitutional a It then stood. I tben
suggested an amendment which granted
Jury trial In misdemeanor cases under the
state law tf asked for, which, on the mo
tion of Mr. Quackenbusb was adopted.
and which Is the law as It now stands.
Thl amendment which I suggested was
afterwards fully discussed on th floor
of the house, so the democratic delega
tion are not to blame for the Jury pro
vision, and the Jury provision waa not a
Joker carefully hidden in the recesses of
an apparently Innocent hllL In fact ail
partite concerned wars desirlous of ob
taining a valid law. and war not attempt
ing to hide anything from the public, for
they had no ulterior motive, and were not
seeking urreptltiou legislation..
I am fully convinced that the law aa
it new stand la constitutional and I am
Just a thoroughly convinced that the sec
tion in regard to Jury trial would have
been unconstitutional if th bill had been
passed as originally drawn. It, there
fore, makes no diferenoo how th jury
law cam Into eilstencs It la valid, and
If th Jury had been denied It would have
invalid. On of the Judgea of our
district court has so held.
Kindly permit me to suggest, that there
la more trouble with th seopl drawn aa
Juror than with the law. If the men
drawn as jurors will do their whole duty,
by appearing and serving, or if those sub
stituted for those who fall to appear
whan drawn, will honestly seek to carry
out the provisions of toe law, I do not be
Ueve ther would be much fault found.
I believe that the organisations of thla
city which are trying to Improve our
present condition, would do well to keep a
a list of the mea who are drawn a
Juror under thla Isw and fall to appear,
aa wall a of the mea substituted, aa aa
to discover if any of them have failed te
do their whole duty In thl matter, and
If they hsvs, to Inform th public wherein,
they wr derelict, should thsy afterward
eaek political preferment. It a man re
fuses or neglect hi duty te the aabltc
aa a Juror, he ought not te aak for
UrtcaJ favors, and If h doe the public
ought to deny his request.
