Federal Court Finds No Evi
dence of Unlawful League
, to Restrain Trade.
GOVERNMENT LOSES SUIT
Reading Company Held Xot to
Bate Violated Commodities Clause
of Hepburn Act; Jersey Central
Status Is Xot Disturbed.
. PHILADELPHIA, July 4. The United
6tatea Court for the Eastern district
of Pennsylvania decided Saturday that
the Reading group of corporations, the
Central Railroad Company of New Jer.
sey, the Lehigh Coal & Navigation
Company and subsidiary and allied
companies are not leagued together In
an unlawful combination and therefore
do not unduly restrain commerce in
the production, sale or transportation
The Federal Government. which
brought the suit nearly two years ago
to dismember the alleged combination
into separate units and to nullify agree
ments and leases, wins a point in that
the court suggested that the Lehigh
& Wilkesbarre Coal Company be di
vorced from the Jersey Central Rail
road. . Court Makes Suggestions.
As the subject of this particular
separation was not urged in the trial
of the case, the court suggested it for
the consideration of counsel, when the
scope of the decree comes to be de
termined. The Reading ownership of
the Jersey Central Railroad is not dis
turbed. The court decided that there was no
vinlatlnn Yiv tha Uainr fnmnnnlAII of
the commodities clause of the Hepburnq
railroad act. which prohibits a railroad
from transporting any commodity in
which it has an interest.
The suit Is one of the most Important
the Government has brought to break
up what it declares to be an Illegal
combination in the anthracite business.
League to Control Fuel Charged.
The Government's suit against the
Reading road was the outgrowth of a
general suit it filed In 1907 against all
the anthracite coal roads. The charge
of conspiracy therein made was not sus
tained by the Supreme Court, but the
Government won two material points.
It thereupon decided on individual ac
tions against many railroad companies,
of which the Reading was the chief.
The Government asked for the disso
lution of what was declared to be a
combination of competitors in violation
of the Sherman anti-trust law.
It was alleged that this combination
was held together by the Reading Com
pany, which had a capital of $275,
000,000. It was alleged that the companies
were leagued together so that they
controlled more than 63 per cent of the
unmined coal deposits; that they were
mining about 26 per cent of the annual
production and their tenants 3 per cent
additional, and that the railroads named
were transporting about 33 per cent of
the total production. The Government
further maintained that, according to
the "generally accepted calculations of
geologists and mining engineers," the
coal areas controlled by the alleged
combination would outlast by many
years those of any competitor.

Miss Arnold Declares Spirit of the

"The spirit of the South is against
woman suffrage and when the Demo

South." This assertion was- made by
Miss Virginia C. Arnold, who spoke on
the "Greatest Need of the Home To

League last night at the library. The
greatest need she construed to be wo
man suffrage. -
A. D. Cridge. speaking on the same
subject, predicted that it would only
be necessary to wait until one or two
more states In the Union secured wo
man suffrage to secure National suf

time comes the women will not need
to wait until an amendment to the

who expressed the fear that the woman
suffragists would use President's Wil
son's opposition to the enfranchisement
of women as a basis for opposing and
defeating him in the coming election.
W. L. Glass said that it would be a
good thing if the women could defeat
Wilson on that ground. -
"If they showed, they were able to
do it we would get woman suffrage
the next time," he said.
Mrs. Laura C. Little expressed the be
lief that the greatest need of the home
today was not woman suffrage but the
passage of an Initiative bill for prohi

ended her remarks by reading a poem

Rrnsrlubla Experiment With Ckea

f Greet Beaett.
PHILADELPHIA. June 26. .With a
little suitcase full of chemicals, for
which nations may some time bid for
tunes. William S. Bond, a 28-year-old
chemist of Wilmington, Del. climbed
Into a 96 cubic foot air-tight box and
allowed himself to be submerged Into
a tank of water for more than seven
hours, at- the end of which time he
emerged In good condition.
Professor Abraham Henwood. In
structor In chemistry at the Drexel
Institute, who witnessed Bond's experi
ment, said that In his opinion a man
could stay in the box approximately
lour nours without losing conscious
ness. The experiment which took place in
the Mechanical Engineering Labora
tory of the Drexel Institute, and
which was witnessed by Captain Lloyd
Bankson. of the Bureau of Naval Con
struction of Cramps Shipyard: Lieu
tenant D. N. Fedotoff. the Junior naval
attache of the Russian Embassy, and
Abraham lien wood, professor of
chemistry of the Drexel Institute, was
to demonstrate the power of Bond's
discovery to purify air by the absorp
tion of poisonous gases thrown off by
the lungs. According to Captain Bank
son, such a discovery. If entirely ap
plicable, would be of Immense value
in purifying the air In submarines and

worked, read and sweated for almost
eight hours was made of thick pine
boards rendered absolutely airtight.
This was placed In a tank of water:
aiso made of boards which reached
half way up the outside of the com
partment. The upper part of the lat
ter was surrounded and topped with
an outer casing like the outer shell
-f a thermos bottle, except that the
intervening space was filled with
water. On top of the compartment was
a manhole, the lid of which win screwed
tight after Bond had entered. In this
lid was a small window. The advan
tage of this extraordinary contrivance
which seemed to tickle Captain Bank
son was to diminish the pressure of
the water on the outside of the tarvk.
At 10 o'clock Bond, clad in a bathing
suit and a pair of rubbers, climbed
into this compartment with his pre
cious suitcase, lunch, supper, apparatus
and a current magazine. A minute
later he was sealed in and water was
run over the. top of the manhole lid.
Inside of the compartment there was
an electric light, a telephone and an
electrlo fan, besides the apparatus,
which consisted of four plates such as
can be bought at any notion store.
Bond dissolved some of his Invention
on these plates and allowed the fan
to circulate the Impure air over the
surface of the solution. The solution
took up the carbon dioxide and thus
purified the air.
Every half hour his friends called
him up on the telephone or climbed to
tne top of the box to gase at him
through the window. Then at times
they drew out samples of the air by
a rubber tube and tested it for the
percentage of carbon dioxide.
Thing were going on finely, until
suddenly at 1 o'clock the light went
out. The bell on the outside rang and
some one took up the receiver, but
could hear nothing. For a moment
no one knew what to do. They were
about to drain off the mater and open
up the apparatus when Bond rung
several times from the inside. This
let his friends know that he was all

ington. July 1. One-cent letter postage
on local mall Is advooated by Repre
sentative Dill, of Spokane, the new
Democratic member of the Washing
ton delegation. Mr. Dill recently spent
some time In Washington on business
before the departments, and while here
looked Into the postal question. As a
result of what be learned, he belelved
the Government could well afford to
cut Its letter postage In half. Insofar
as strictly local mail Is concerned.
"During my stay In Washington."
said Mr. Dill. "I have learned that a
proposition will be pushed at the next
session- of Congress to reduce the rate
of postage on sealed letters from t
rents to 1 rent, when such letters are
for delivery In the same towns or cities
in which they are mailed. I believe
this la a meritorious proposition, and
one that should receive the early at
tention of Congress.
"Experts Inform me that the Gov
ernment nets an enormous profit on
local delivery letters, and if such Is
the case, I can see no reason why a
reduction should not be made In the
rate. There seems to be no doubt but
what such a reduction In the rate
would result In an enormous Increase
In the volume of mall, thereby causing
no material. If any, loss In the rev
enues. "Huch legislation would be especially
valuable to local merchants In devel
