Prepared Especially for Oklahoma
The Oklahoma delegation cal-
led on the membera of the Inter-
state Commerce Commission in
an effort to secure just rates in
favor of the packing industry in
Oklahoma City and in favor of
the farmers and stock raisers of
Oklahoma. The existing rates
discriminate flagrantly against
the farming and packing in-
terest of Oklahoma, and an effort
is being made to secuie a fair
and reasonable adjustment.
The decision of the Supreme
Court in the Standard Oil case
is the sensation and talk of the
capital city. It holds in effect
that there are good trusts as
well as bad trusts and that re-
straint of trade may be reason-
able as well as unreasonable.

when a combination is formed to
destroy other legitimate indust-
ries anci enterprises, that des-
truction must be reasonable.
Several bills have been introduc-
ed to correct this decision, one
by Senator Gore, which provides
that ail contracts, combinations
and conspiracies in restraint of
trade which are unlawful shall
be presumed, construed and

dleman in every way possible*
and the prospect! are very
bright for success.
A bitter fight ia brewing in
the Senate over the Lorimet

his toga in such event.
