TRENTON. N. J.. June 3.
. The derision In the United Slates
Steel corporation suit was filed In
' the United States district court
this afternoon. It held that the
corporation should not be dis
solved. The principal points in
the decision are:
It refuses to issue any injunc
tion. It holds the foreign trade of
the steel corporation ia not a vio
lation of the Sherman law.
It holds certain price fixing
agreements which followed the
1 Gary dinners, but which stopped

It allows the government to
move to retain jurisdiction of the
bill if such price-fixing prac

matters may now be controlled by
the new trade commission.
Wkat Opinions Are.
The opinions, twoln number, are largely
a discussion whether the steel corpora
tion monopolized the steel trade or dealt
unfairly with competitor or purchasers.
. The opinion says:
"This case, a proceeding under the
Sherman anti-trust law. Is one largely
of business facts."
It says all the trust cases thus far de
termined settle down to this, that only
such combinations are within the Sherman
act aa) by reason of Intent of those form

further holds the questions of fact for
the court to determine whether, when
the bill was filed, the steel company was
unduly restricting competition or unduly
obstructing trade. In the horn market.
Whether It was restricting competition
or unduly obstructing trade la the for
eign market; and lastly, had the steel
corporation these objects In view when it
was formed In 1901 T The opinion holds
the proofs show, when the bill was filed,
the competitors of the steel' company
were doing 60 per cent of the country's
steel and iron business.
Not Rise bat Power.
The text of majority opinion says It is
not the slse of that which Is acquired,
but the trade power of that which Is not
acquired. In the ten years since the steel
corporation "was formed It "has Increased
Its business about 40 per cent. Nine

LONDON, June 3. After a siege
cf three weeks the fortress of Prse

Austrlans. The Russians were lo

This news was received in London
with a certain degree of surprise.
While It had been well known that
the Russian position at Przemysl wai
serious and that the artillery fire of
the Germanic allies was daily becoming-
more terrific, the announcement
of an Austrian victory waa not ex
pected so quickly, particularly in
view of the official statement from
Petrograd of last Monday saying the
Anatro-German grip before Pnemysl
had been broken and that the offen

had passed to the Russians.

The Austrian entered Praemysl st S:X
o'clock this morning after hammering
with heavy guns that 1 sated, mora than
twenty day. The capitulation cf
Prsemysl must b ascribed to tha t
feotivwoeaa of this artillery onslaught.
Tha occupation of tha fortress by the
Austrian wtll remove th danger of th
Russian threat against Craow.
Whan th Russians starved out th
Austrian garrison at Prsemysl, an oper
ation which brought them Into th fort

sywtenmticalty, conserving the lives of
their . men as much as possible. The
method whioh th Auetro-Oerroiuia have
been employing recently to aooompllah

Another feature of th fighting on th

Warsaw. Neither th Russian nor tha
British newspapers are able to aay
whether the renewed battering of th
Russian line between tha Plllca and th

through to the Polish capital or a mova
