EIQ VICTORY FOR GOVERNMENT
PHILADELPHIA Oct. 1. The
United States government von a
sweeping Ylcto'ry in one of Its impor
tant anti-trust cases today, when
udge Oliver B. Dickinson in the
i nited States district court here,
banded down, an opinion dissolving
tbe alleged moving picture trust on
the ground that It was violating the
Sherman ' law regulating interstate
.,ymi1 rThe decision was rendered against
the Motion Picture Patents company,
the General Film company and many
other concerns and individuals man
ufacturing motion picture films and
accessories, or controlling the rights
of their manufacture. Many mil
lions of dollars are involved.
The court made no auggeatlona aa to
Itow the -alleged comtii nation ia to be
dissolved, but requested that a decree
ie aubinltted for approval. It ia probable
that the caae will be tuken to the u
The defendanta in their arguments laid
stieaa upon the rights of thoae holding
patenta to-do with their property what
they thought beat, but the louit In Ita
opinion declared that the granting of a
patent dock not confer a license to do
that which the law condemns. The court
found that the defendant went far be
; yond what was necessary to rroteot
I patent rights and that their acta eon-
itituted a violation of the anti-trust laws.
4 Moropoly la Alef'jtht.
It waa charged by the government that
. the alleged monopoly waa formed In 1008
by virtually all the manufacturer of
movlnir picture films in the country. Un
der an agreement made by these con-c-irn8.
It. waa alleged, the Motion Picture
.enta company waa made the holding
oncern of nearly all the patenta that
have been Issued. A Hat of theater
. J and moving picture places waa prepared
jf, "nd no film exchange, it waa alleged.
waa allowed to distribute films to any
exhibitor except those named on the
list. . ... .
Uniform prices and rules were made, it
was further alleged,' and if the film ex
changes did not observe the orders of
the so-called trust, their supply was cut
The ault was fUcd Auguat 16, 1912, and
final argument waa heard In December,
1914. The ault was conducted for. the
government by Edwin H. Grosvenor,
special assistant to the attorney general.
The defendanta named In the original
petition of complaint besides the .motion
picture patents company are General Film
company,' Blograph company,' Thomas A.
Edison (Inc.), Eeaanay Film Manufactur
ing company, the Kalem company (Inc.),
George Klelne. Lubm Manufacturing
company, Melies Manufacturing com
pany, Pathes Freres. the Sells; Polyscope
company, the Vltagraph company, Frank
U Dyer, Henry 'N. Marvin, J. J. Ken
nedy, William Helzer, Samuel Tong, J.
A. Berst. Gaton Mclles, Albert E. Smith,
George K. Spoor and W. N. Sellg.
The court In Its decision states that
all contracts enumerated In the govern
ment's petition and the combination
therein described, were a conspiracy In
restraint of trade, and therefore illegal
and that' they constituted, with the ex
ception of the operations of the Mclles
Manufacturing company, a monopoly In
olatlon of the anti-trust laws.
Htrrrlm O'opot'e Power.
The court sketched the formation of
the alleged Illegal combination, ahowing
that it was created in 1908, and that the
total Investments amounted to millions
of dollars. The plan was, according to
the court, to corblno the manufacturers
end Importers of films Into one Interest.

doubled, from about IC0.M0 to about

Chief Ieputy K. V. North of the col
