TRUSTS CAN'T COLLECT UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT RENDERS AN IMPORTANT DECISION. CLAIMED ILLEGAL CONCERN Sued for $57,000 by Wall Paper Com- bine, Defendants Say Plaintiff Is Trust. Washington, Feb. 2.—The case of fhe Continental Wall Paper company vs. Lewis Volght & Sons of Cincinnati was Monday decided by the supreme court of the United States in Volght's favor. Suit was brought on a debt, of $57,000, the payment of which was re- sisted on the ground that the paper rompany is a trust. In effect the de- cision holds that an admitted trust, organized contrary to the Sherman anti-trust law, can not use the courts to collect d3bts. Justice Harlan's opinion dealt in detail with various phases of the case. It was based oil the third defense of Voight, that the company is part of a trust. He then went on to show that this corpora- tion, if a representative of the com- bination, would have the effect of not only restraining but of monopolizing the sale and manufacture of paper.

THAT PANAMA PROJECT FEARED GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE DIFFICULTY PUSHING CANAL WORK. COST LARGE SUM OF MONEY Lock Canal Is Found To Be Costly. Some Believe Mistake Is Made. Washington, Feb. 10.—The out- break In the senate Wednesday on the subject of the Panama Canal may be accepted as the pressage of a larger controversy which will not only In- volve engineering and political ques- tions. but disclose difficulties In finan- cing the enterprise that have not here- tofore been considered. The doubt as to the safety of the Gatun dam has infected the minds of some who form- erly were firm in their faith. Hut what has occasioned most dissatisfac- tion is the constantly growing esti- mates of cost. Originally, or three years ago, a majority of this commit- tee were in favor of a sea-level canal, it was the assurance that this type could be more easily made at Panama that caused some 6f them to transfer their allegiance from the Nicaragua route.

/ v mfttrtj" VNNY WOMEN AND WOMEN. Men get along better with men than women do with women. At least we think they do. And the reason is that men are more used to liberty than women are, and readier to concede it. Women also seem bettor constituted to live with men than with women, wiiich is just as it should be. One grown woman is a fairly comfortable provision for any house—not counting servants (who have their own troubles about getting along with one an- other). Frequently women who have had 15 or 20 years' experience as the sole grown-up woman of the house, havS daughters grow up on them. We would like see statistics of the pro- portion of families in which 'that makes trouble. It is a natural trou- ble. The boss-woman who has been sole despot of her branch of the do- mestic kingdom has gradually to yield independence and a vote to another, grown woman living under the same roof. The boss-woman has to learn to live with another grown-up female after being 20 years out of practic...

Austin: "We are going away from ftere," says the House of Representa- tives. "We are going away from here, the Senate willing. There will be no $2 days for the Thirty-First Legisla- ture." The concurrent resolution providing for sine die adjournment March 13, in- troduced two weeks ago and postpon- ed until Monday, passed the House painlessly, without a word of debate and without a roll call, something un- precendented in the history of Tex- as legislation. Again, it is without pre- cedent that a Texas Legislature, or even one branch of it, should resolve to adjourn at the end of sixty days. It is clearly shown that a majority of the members are not caring very much whether many bills are passed, although they continue to introduce many. Austin: Senator Sturgeon introduc £d a bill ...
