OOKVIOTED AS TRUST
New York Jury Finds $40,000,000
Corporation Guilty of Violating
New oYrk, Dec. ll.-The American
Ice Company was found guilty of vio-
lating the anti-monopoly law of this
state by a jury in the supreme court
The jury waaout one hour and fo'-
ty minutes, and when the foremiQ
announced the verdict, the court lm-
mednately impost the maximum sen-
tence of $5,000 fine.
The conviction is the first under
the new anti-monopoly law and will
probably be fought to the highest
court in the state.
The significance of the verdict lies
not so much in the relatively trivial
amount of the fine imposed as in t':i
intimation made made by John 6.
Stanchfield, of defendant's counse
that a (..li' ig against the company,
which ae w.id supplies eignt million
c stomers, would mark the lire'., ^p
in its ultimate dissolution.
The American Ice Company, though
tried under the laws of New York,
was incorporated under the laws of
New Jersey for $40,000,000 and later
taken over by the American Ice Se-
curities Company, of the same state,
after a drastic reorganization.
The company has plants in New-
York, Washington, D. C, Baltimore
and Philadelphia, and has absorbed
many smaller companies along the
Hudson river and in the Maine ice
fields. Before Wesley N. Oier was
elected president of the company,
Charles W. Morse, the convicted
banker, was active in it saffairs.
mattresses were doaens of bottles of
'whiskey. He had it arranged for a
I bottle of whiskey he could reach ©e-
twen the mattresses and hand it out
t« them, and it is believed that if he
had become totally paralyzed, deaf
dumb and blind, that he would still
have found some way to sell whiskey.

Outhrie , Okla., Dec. 11.—While
seated at a table with five other men,
engaged In a social game of cards in
1 the office of the lamo hotel here late
tonight, E. P. Tiernan, Santa Fe tire-
man. whose home is at Purcell, was
shot through the body and fatal'.
wounded by an, as yet, unidentified
The shot was fired from the front of
a stable directly across the street
from the hotel.
On acount of the numerous raids
being made on bootlegger's joints here
the past twenty-four hours by a corps
of state enforcement officers, and the
fact that a "spotter" sat at the table
with Tiernan. officers are working on
the theory that the shot was intended
for the '-spotter."
Tulsa, Okla., Dec. 11.—The coron-
er's jury in the inquest held over the
remains of A. C. Smith and wife
found dead in their home at this
piace Thursday afternoon, yesterday
morning returned a verdict that death
was due to accidental gas asphyxia-
A number of witnesses from among
the friends and neighbors of the de-
ceased testified before the jury but
none of the evidence threw any fur-
ther information into the investiga-
tion. The evidence all tended to show
that Smith and his wife commanded
high respect and that their domestic
rife was cheerful and happy.
Word was received yesterday from
n Mrs. Johnson of Madison. Wis., a
sister of the dead woman, and from
a relative in Mansfield, O., saying
that they would be in Tulsa as soon
as possible to take charge of the bod-
ies. the disposition of which will
