Supreme Court Enjoins Them
Frorti Receiving Board of
DESTROYS THEIR BUSINESS
Fierce AVarf arc ', Waged- for Five
Years Ends in. Victory for Board
of Trade Decision Will
Close Thousand Shops.
WASHINGTON. May 8. The -Supreme
Court of the United States today decided
the two cases of the Board of Trade of
Chicago, against the C. C. Christie Cora
mission. Company;; of Kansas City, and
the Kinsey Company, of Chicago, involv
ing the question, as to the right of the
private concerns to use the continuous
quotations of the board. In favor of the
contentions of the Board of Trade. There
were two cases, the Board of Trade vs.
the Christie Company, and the Kinsey
Company against the Board of Trade, but
both involved efforts to enjoin the private
establishments from the use of the
.board's quotations. Both concerns re
sented tbe use of the designation of
bucketshop, and it was charged that the
transactions of the board are themselves
a nature to Justify the characterization
of the board as a bucketshop, a majority
of them involving no physical transfer
of the property supposed to be trans
ferred. Board of .Trade Has Contract.
Summing up the points Involved, Justice
. Holmes; -in delivering the opinion of the
court, related that the board supplies its
quotations to the telegraph companies
under a contract not to deliver them to
bucketshops, and said the cases were in
stituted tojprcvent the use of the figures
by private houses without contracts with
the Board of Trade. He added that a
mujority of the court were not prepared
to Hay that the transactions of the board
constitute gambling and the decision was
that the injunction should b granted as
prayed for. Justices Harlan, Brewer and
In his opinion. Justice Holmes char
acterized the board as "a. great market
wncre. through its 1800 members, is
transacted a large .part of the grain and
provision business of the world."
Speaking of the dealing in futures, he
Dealing: in Futures XiCg-al.
"People will endeavor to forecast the
future and to make agreements accord
ing to their prophecy. Speculation of
this kind by competent men is the
self-adjustment of society to the prob
able Its value is well known as a
means of avoiding or mitigating cases,
equalizing prices and providing for pe
riods of want- When the Chicago board
was organized we cannot doubt that
it -was expected to afford a market for
future as well as present sales, with
tho necessary incidents of such a mar
ket and, while the State of Illinois al
lows the charter to stand, we ' cannot
believe that the pits, merely as places
where future sales are made, are for
bidden by law."
CLOSES ALL BUCKET - SHOPS
Decision Ends Crusade on Them Be
gun Five Xcars Ago.
CHICAGO. May 8, (Special.) The
decision of the United States Supreme
Court in the bucket-shop cases will re
sult In the closing of more than 1000
grain bucket-shops, located mainly in
Western cities. It also means a rev
enue of $40,000 a year to the Chicago
Board of Trade for the sale- of Its quo
tations - to the telegraph companies,
which act as distributors to the con
cerns entitled to receive the quota
Bucktghops originated In Chicago
abortj2o years .ago and spread ..rapidly
until they became a National institu
tion. ,ln. all that time there has been
fierce warfare upon them by the Board
here, with varying success, until the
active and thorough crusade' started
m 1900. -when W. S. Warren was elected
president of" the" Board. James 'Hill,
Jr., was put in charge of the campaign
and empowered to employ his own
iegal talent. His work culminated in
success in the Supreme Court today.
In former years the battle took on
various phases. Injunctions were ob
tained, but the quotations continued to
.eak. Then the Board required the
..olograph companies to pay a reason
able sum lor the figures, but they re
fused, and for eight months no quota
tions were sent out. The bucket-shops
"ontlnuod to steal them after the
Western Union Telegraph Company
agreed to pay 530,000 a yearfor them,
but this gave them a market value,
making them a tangible piece of prop
srty and opening the way for the
many suits more than 100 in all
started against the bucket-shops. Ten
ears ago there were more than 100
grain bucket-shops in this city alone.
ut Tlgld-and persistent criminal pro
ceedings . finally.--dro'e them out of
business,- though they .simply trass

The buyer of a certain store, located within a half-mile of this headquarters
of style and quality, remarked to a New York manufacturer of garments
during a recent trip East that "He wasn't going to be particular this year;
about the 'inside of the garments he bonght so long as they 'looked well' on
the outside so many visitors, you know, never expect to see 'em again-r-and
the home trade t Oh! they wouldn't mind being 'fooled' once." This
conservative, dependable old store isn't going to do business that way "We're
going to treat visitors and home-folk alike, in the same old way only the
best goods and best all the way thro. We're not going in ou any of the
get-rich-quick schemes' of the "grafters" who don't care what visitors say
of Portland and her merchants after they get home. We're going to do a lot
of business this year on a smaller than ever margin of profit and add a lot of
REPUTATION to that already attained by this DEPENDABLE house.
Women folk who buy garments of us this year will get the greatest bargains
of their life and QUALITY will be sewed in thro' and thro' with the silken
thread of STYLE. Bargains told of below, and every value offered this year
is selected from our own superb stocks, nothing bought for a ""Sale." The
losses are all our own or the manufacturer's. Principle is never lost sight
of in this business.
