Charges of New York Are Un
founded, Holds Attorney-
LIMITATION RIGHT UPHELD

Violation, Is Decision.
WASHINtiTOX, March 17. Attorney
General Gregory has written a letter
to James H. Beck, counsel for the bun
Association, disposing of the complaint
eainst the Associated Press for al
leged violation of the Federal anti
trust act made by the New lork Sun
Printing & Publishing so"atln,,
The Attorney-General's letter, dated
March 12. makes Known that there is
no ground for action by the Federal
authorities against the Associated
Press under the anti-trust act.
The Attorney-General's letter is the
result of a petition filed on February
3 1914. y the Sun Printing & Puo
li'shing Association, asking the Attorney-General
to make an investigation
and then to institute proceedings
against the Associated Tress.
Right to Organise Upheld.
The chief point of interest In the Attorney-General's
letter is his state
ment as to the risht of a group of
newspapers to form an association
undi-r given conditions, as follows:
"Assuming that the kind o( service
In which the Associated Press is en
rased Is interstate commerce (a ques
tion not free from doubt). I am never
theless of the opinion that it is no
violation of the anti-trust act for a
frroup of newspapers to form an asso
ciation to collect and distribute news
tor their own benefit, and to that end
to aprree to furnish the news collected
by them to each other or to the asso
ciation, provided that no attempt is
made to prevent the members from
purchasing- or otherwise obtaining news
from rival agencies. If that is true,
the corollary must be true, namely,
that newspapers desiring to form and
maintain such an organization may de
termine who s'lall bo and who shall not
Be their associates.
Monopoly Sot Found.
"This, of course, is not to say that
such an association might not develop
Into an unlawful monopoly. The facts
adduced, however, in my opinion do not
chow that that has happened in the
case of the Associated Press."
Frank B. Noyes, president of the As
sociated Press, referring to the Attorney-General's
letter tonight, said in
"It is the more gratifying, because
it was the result of a long, careful
and searching scrutiny by the Depart
ment of Justice.
It is convincing proof of the utter
lack of foundation of such attacks as
that of the Sun. that such an investi
gation found nothing in the methods
and practices of the organisation prop
erlv subject to the attacks made by
the Sun. and nothing in its by-laws at
all objectionable save one section a
provision .similar to which had been
upheld many years ago by the highest
court of New York that has been a
dead letter and never operative in any
eensi since its adoption at the time the
present organization was formed in
"Attorney-General Gregory has ac
cepted the Sun's contention, though
with some doubt, that a full responsi
bility attached to the organization
under the anti-trust laws and has
therefore based his scrutiny and his
exoneration on the Sun's own conten
tion." TRADE BALANCE LARGEST

FOR BYRON TONIGHT
Wonderful Portrayal by Nephew of Ada Rehan in "Today" at Heilig Ends
With Telegraphic Call to New York to Study for New Play.
BY LEONE CASS BABB.
WHENEVER an actor is given a
character to create in a play he
searches the storehouse of his
memory to find a type in which to ex
Robert Mantell told me once that he
has watched death scenes in hospitals
to learn his art of simulating the thou

actor must die. Ellen Terry watched

lights and shades for her famous
Ophelia, and Rose Stahl haunts the
aisles of department stores for her
Arthur Byron is known as a creator
of types. He makes the part, and who
ever plays it after him imitates him.
Arthur Byron was given the role of
a man who murders his wife. He had
to kill her and make us all glad that
he did it. The role, up to the minute
he choked out her life, he could, play
marvelously well by picking bits from
characters he had known and polish
ing it over with the well-known brand
of Byronic dramatic ability. , But he
had nothing up his sleeve about mur
derers. At least, he couldn't recall one,
until, like a flash, it came to him of
an engagement he played in San Fran
cisco when Theodore Durant was being
tried for murder, many years ago. It
was the expressions and muscular con
tractions of Durant's face that Byron
watched. Every twitch of Durant's
eyelids, clenching of his nails, intaking
of breath or repression of expression
Byron noted in his memory, and figured
rightly at the time that some day he
would be called upon to play a nervous,
harassed wreck and all cf these plc
turiugs would be valuable. But it was
through many years that he waited to
use his collection of jumps and shud
ders. And then came a role wherein
he could plungo up to his neck with
them all. He fetches 'em out in fine
array in "Today" at the Heilig. He
says he does so much of it that it
really makes him nervous and high
strung when he's not acting.
Personally, Mr. Byron is most Inter
esting and likable. He admits to being
43 years young and has been married
"The quaint and altogether unique
part of it i3 that my wife and I live
together," he smiled. "It isn't good

MAN TAKES POISON ON LEARNING
FIANCEE IS MARRIED.
Discovery Woman to W hom He Had

Husband Prompts Act, Says Officer.
Oscar Dahlstrom, who died Saturday
at the County Hospital, committed sui

the day set for his wedding that his
fiancee, a Portland woman, to whom
he had been sending a large part of his
salary, was married and living with her
husband, according to a report made
last night by Deputy Coroner Smith.
District Attorney Evans and the police
will be consulted, the Deputy Coroner
said, to determine what action, if any,
can be taken.
Dahlstrom was an engineer in a log

duped. Deputy Coroner Smith reported
that Dahlstrom thereupon swallowed
bichloride of mercury in his room.
He was found and hurried to the
hospital but the poison had done its
work and a losing fight for life ended
a week later.

MURDER THEORY FAILS

BRIDE ENDED LIFE.
Evidence of Straggle Lacking and No
Mark u Body Sudden Insanity
Possible Suicide Motive.
ESTACADA, Or, March 17. (Spe
cial.) Acting Coroner John Sievers
and Sheriff Wilson are inclined to be
lieve that Mrs. Minnie K. Armstrong,
the Garfield bride who was found dead
in a well yesterday, committed suicide.
The fact that a physician who ex
amined the body found no mark on it
and that there is no evidence of a
struggle near the well or in the house
are considered proof that she was not
murdered. Motives for murder also are
lacking. Neither Mrs. Armstrong nor
her husband had any enemies, it is
said. . ...
Mr. Armstrong said, that since tneir
marriage a month ago he and his wife
had had no domestio trouble of any
kind, and the only motive for suicide
that has been suggested is that Mrs.

Lawyers AVho Had Bequests of
$700,000 Called Schemers.
NEW YORK, March 3. A picture of
wealthy business men, lawyers and
others vying for the favor of an aged
woman, once a fashionable matron. In

$1,600,000 estate, Is painted by Surro
gate Cohalan In an opinion denying
probate to the will of Amelia G. Cut
ter, widow of Henry T. Cutter, one of
the largest stockholders In the drug
firm of Hegeman & Co.
The Surrogate points out that Frank
M. Tichenor, a lawyer, who drew one
will for Mrs. Cutter in which she left
him $500,000, bought chops for her in
a neighboring butcher shop, while
George Ramsey, who got a $200,000 be
quest In her last will, brought chickens
to Mrs. Cutter.
The court points out that the testa
trix was left alone In her big home to
live and die in the midst of squalor.
"No action was taken in her behalf
which common humanity would re
quire," says the Surrogate. "Was tit la
because the beneficiaries in the pro

terference with the scheme that had
been concocted by them to divide
among themselves her estate?"
The Surrogate's decision will result
In the reversion of the big estate to
cousins of the defendant. The chief
sufferers by the breaking of the will
are W. McMaster Mills, vice-president
of the Union Trust Companj', and
George Ramsey, legatees for $200,000
each. They were also named as ex

Mrs. Cutter died April 3 last. The
