sloping tract of land. This site offers exceptional
opportunity for making a good city. Vast areas of ara

Senator Say President Lobbyist
An uneipected turn waa given to
the "lobby" Investigation when Sena
tor Townsend. of Michigan, republican
declared on trie stand that the Influ

the democratic secret caucus on the
making of the tariff bill constituted
the "nearest approach to undue In

the Investigating committee would be
able to find.
Senator Townaend's statements In
relation to Prealdent Wllaon were not

Minnesota would confiscate the prop

railroad company by Its muxlmum
freight and 2-cent passenger fare law.
It enjoined the state from enforcing
these laws as to this roud for the

The decision, regarded as one of the
most Important ever announced by the
court, had been under consideration
for 14 months. Railroad commissions
from eight states and the governors

Attorney-General McReynolds. The
federal government seeks the dissolu

the Eastman Kodak company of New

with monopolizing the trade In photo
It Is the aim of the government to
obtain a division of the assets and
business of the two companies, con

will destroy the alleged monopoly and
restore competition. The petition In
equity asks for an Injunction forbid

This marks the attorney-general's
first application of the recent decis
ion of the United States supreme
court denying patentees the right to
fix resale prices of retailers.
The alleged monopoly has been ac
complished, the petition declares, by
the Kastman company's absorbing or
acquiring control of a great number
of competitors in the United States
and foreign countries.
