JURY IN DARROW
CASE Ifl STREETS
Court Held on Corners, in Sa
loon and in Rooming-House.
SCENE OF ARREST VISITED
Judge, Prisoner. Jurors, Bailiffs and
Attorneys Go by Auto to Points
Mentioned in Connection
LOS ANGELES. Aug. 3. In the brib
ery case of Clarence S- Darrow, a ses
sion of the court was held on three
corners in the business section of the
city. Inside of a saloon and on the
. third floor of a rooming house.
Shortly after court opened, the jury
was conveyed in automobiles to the
scene of the alleged bribery of George
X. Lockwood, talesman, and at Third
and Los Angeles streets, the place
where the bribe money was said to
have been passed, Judge Hutton recon
vened court, in the presence of hun
dreds of curious spectators attracted
to the spot by the unusual scene.
Judge Alone Addresws Jury.
By stipulation of opposing counsel.
Judge Hutton alone addressed the jury
as it visited the various points in the
vicinity mentioned in the evidence, the
court reporter standing at his elbow
recording his remarks, as well as the
frequent suggestions of counsel. A
half doren. bailiffs guarded the jury
as the itinerant session of court was
held and at each Ftop newspaper photog
. raphers mounted wagons and automo
biles to take plcturee.
The saloon in which detectives waited
for the appearance of Bert H. Franklin,
the confessed briber, was visited and
the patrons ejected while a brief ses
sion was held, the bartender removing
the evidence of recently served re
freshments. Juror Visit Scene of Arrest.
After a visit to the rooming-house
a block distant, from the window of
which Detective Samuel Browne, so he
testified, watched, the meeting between
Lockwood and C. E. White, the "stake
holder" of the alleged bribe money,
the jury wks taken to the scene of
Franklin"s arrest, after which court
officials, jurors, counsel end reporters
returned to the courtroom where court
was adjourned until Monday morning.
Judge Hutton"s failure today to rule
on the question of extending the scope
of Darrow's cross-examination to the
I Harrington conversations, said to have
been recorded by means of a telephonic
. device, destroyed whatever hope was
' entertained that the trial could be
ended nest week. Although it is be
:teved that the defense will close Mon
day, it is believed that the case finally
will go to the jury not before late in
the following week.
JUDGE TELLS OF THREAT

WASHINGTON. Aug. 3. L. C. Laylin.
an Ohio Taft leader, just appointed
Assistant Secretary of the Interior,
made public at the White House a let
ter from Judge E. D. Dillon, who re
cently declined the Republican nomina
tion for Governor of Ohio. Judge Dil
lon wrote he had received from Colonel
Roosevelt a letter demanding that he
declare for him (Colonel Roosevelt) or
face the opposition of a second candi
date. Judge Dillon wrote in part:
"I have not desired to continue dis
cussion of the affair, and was sur
prised that there was any question as
to the attitude of Mr. Roosevelt, aa
represented here in Ohio and othei
states. Everybody knows, or soon will
know, his peremptory demand hns been
from the beginning, with respect to the
regular nominee for Governor, that the
nominee must declare for him .or he
will nominate another candidate who
will. This was true in 'my case, and 1

34 PETITIONS ARE FILED
Many Want Offices In Pacific
RAYMOND. Wash.-, Aug. 3. (Special.)
Pacific County will have plenty of
candidates for every office, from cor
oner to State Representative. Filings
of declarations are being made daily by
those candidates who early in the
day announced themselves for one of
flee or another, and unless all signs
fail, there will be many eleventh-hour
filings by men who cannot withstand
the urging of their friends.
For the non-partisan position of Su
perior Judge, for Pacific and Wakia
kum pounties. there are five filings.
Judge Sol Smith, tne present incum
bent, former Judge X. H. Bloomfield,
former Prosecuting Attorney J. J.

latter an attorney of this city, are all
willing to serve.
For Representative. Charles A. Payne,

would be County Clerk. E. A. Seaborg,
present Incumbent, will be opposed by

no opposition for Treasurer.
While no filings have been made for

1ST END BATTLE
Anti-Trust Decree Is to. Stop
Possible Combine Influ
DISSOLUTION IS UNSOUGHT
Government Will Allow Different
Publishing Associations to Ex
ist, but Will Not Permit
Alleged Unfair Methods.
CHICAGO. Aug. 3. With the filing
of an agreed decree in a civil anti-trust
suit against the Western Newspaper
Union and the American Press Associa
tion the Federal Government today took
an advanced step under the Sherman
law to prevent what the Department
of Justice regarded as the possibility of
a combination to Influence the thought
of 60,000,000 readers Of rural newspa
pers. The proceedings in this anti-trust
suit were terminated in record time.
United States District Judge Kenesaw
Landis entering the agreed decree Im
mediately following the filing of the
Government's petition and the answer
of the defendants. The suit was di
rected against the following corporate
and individual defendants:
Central West Publishing Company
(holding company of the Western
Newspaper Union): Western Newspaper
Union; Western Newspaper Union of
New York; George A. JosLyn, of Omaha,
Neb.: John F. Cramer, alllwaukee; H.
H. Fish. Omaha: M. H. Miller, Chi
cago; American Press Association, or
ganized In New York; American Press
Association, organized in West Vir
ginia: Cortland Smith; W. G. Brogan,
and Maurice F. Germond.
In fair Methods Barred.
The decree is designed to end a bitter
trade war between these corporations,
which furnish "boilerplate" and "ready
plate" to thousands of country news
papers. The defendants are restrained
from beginning or continuing alleged
unfair methods in competition which
would result in destroying one or the
other and a complete monoply for the
survivor, with all its potential power of
Influencing sentiments on economic and
other important questions of the read
ers of the 16,000 small newspapers of
the United States, which, it is esti
mated, fall into the hands of two-thirds
of the people of the country.
Pointing out that an attempt was
made in 1909 to bring about a con
solidation of these interests, the Gov
ernment petition says:
"The expectation was that In view
of the great power thus acquired in dis
seminating information, the united
property could be disposed of at great
profit to those interested in instilling
certain economic ideas In the minds of
the public and It was the design that
such a disposition of It should be made.
Defendants Agree to Decree.
"If all plate and ready-print were
supplied by one concern," the petition
adds, "then the news thus distributed
and the discussion of economic and
other important questions thus supplied
would all be designed to mold the sen
timents of the readers to one particular
United States Attorney William T.
Chantland said the defendants nad
agreed to the decree on being shown
copies of the Government's petition.
The Government did not seek the dis
solution of either corporation.
While it is charged that- the Central
West Publishing Company, Incorpor
ated in Maine, with a capital of $6,600,
000, acquired from 1906 to 1909 at a cost
of $2,600,000, the business of compet
itors for the purpose of monopolizing
trade, the Government holds that the
absorbed plants have become so identi
fied with the properties and assets of
the defendants that ti separation wou.d
be a legal Impossibility.
Larger Agencies Held Best.
As another reason against dlnsolu
tion, the petition says that news gath
ering and dissemination can best be
performed for the general public
through the larger agencies, "if there
still remains between the larger
agencies fair, genuine and substantial
The central West Publishing Com
pany, it was added had an arrangement
for furnishing paper matrices to the
Pacific Newspaper Union, which is the
ready print department of the Ameri
can Type Founders' Association, with
offices at Los Angeles, San Francisco,
Seattle, Portland and Spokane.
As a result it is said there is no
competition between the defendants and
the Pacific Newspaper Union.
The defendants as a whole together
with the associations with which they
have trade agreements supply, it is
stated, number more than 95 per cent
of all the newspapers in the United
States, using plate or ready print. The
American Press Association, according
to-the Government, furnished until re
cently, four-fifths of all the plate mat
ter used in this country, while the
Western Newspaper Union supplies 80
per cent of the ready print service.
Fight Began In If) 11.
The smaller independent agencies, the
Government adds, supply less than 600
newspapers with either stereotyped
plate or ready print.
As the result of the failure of nego
tiations to effect consolidation in 1909,
the petition charges that the defendants
began a campaign of destructive com
petition In 1911 and sets forth the al
leged methods pursued by each cor
poration. The decree forbids the con
tinuance of these alleged practices. Ex-
PRICES LOWER THAN EVER
Men patronize our sales at this time for varied reasons. One man waits for it to

quality at sueh low prices.

pressing the belief that unless fore
stalled, one or the other of the cor
porations would be wiped out, the peti
tion said: .
"As the Wrestern Newspaper Union
has assets to the value of $6,500,000 and
the American Press Association's as
sets are only about tl. 600,000 in value,
It Is quite probable that the latter will
be the one to succumb, leaving the
Western Newspaper Union in control of
the entire field."
