Supreme Court Declares Disposition of Product Through Subsidiary Concern a Violation of Law. WASHINGTON, Juno 21.-Tho Government today won In the Supreme Court Its anti-trust suit to put the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad out of tho coal'seltlng business by alleged evasion ot the commodities clause law through a subsidiary coal-selltng company. Tho operating plan was declared Illegal. Tho railroad's plan was salo of the coat at the mouth of tho company's mines to tho Delaware, Lackawana and Western "Coal" Company, except such as It needed for operating the road. The subsidiary company then sold the coal, transported on tho Delawaro, Lackawanna and Western lines. Tho Government contended that tho ex-cluslvo contract between the railroad and coal companies by which tho latter exclusively purchased tho railroad's coal was monopolistic and an evasion of the commodities clause act divorcing railroads from coal selling. . The New Jersey District Federal Court dismissed tho Government's suit, but was reversed In today's unanimous deel- Atlanta jail early today slon of Ihe Supreme Court. In It the directors, officers and stockholders of the coal and railroad companies were de. scribed as practically Identical. That the railroad dictates coal prices to customers of the coal company was also pointed out. Justice Lamar read the opinion of the court. He declared the railroad retained an Indlreot Interest In the coal and by means of Its contract could control prices at New Tork. The court plainly Indicated that the contract was monopolistic and directed the Government to bring new proceedings against the Delaware, Iaokawanna and Weetarn to step Ua alleged unlawful saheioe of seJlisg coal.

Corinont, HIT T FRANK SPARED AT LAST HOUR; MUTTERS Governor Commutes Sentence of Convicted Slayer to Life Imprisonment. Fearing Lynching, Officials Keep Action Secret Until Prisoner Is Smuggled From Jail Mob Tries to Visit Governor. ATLANTA, Ga., Juno 2L-Tho death sen-tonco of Leo M. Frank, superintendent of the National Pencil Factory, convicted slayer of 15-year-old Mary Phagan, an employe of tho factory, was commuted to llfo Imprisonment by Governor John M. Slaton shortly beforo midnight. Fearing an attempt to storm the Jail, drag Frank from the grim old "Tower" and lynch him, tho authorities suppressed the announcement of the commutation until the prisoner had teen smuggled from the prison and rushed In an ambulance to the railway station, whence he was taken by train to Macon. Tho Journey from Maaon to tho State Prison Farm at Mllledgevillo was made by automobile. As a precaution against surprise by any angry citizens that might have anticipated the Governor's action and the secret removal ot the prisoner, Sheriff Man gum filled the ambulance with armed deputies, who stood ready to stand oft a mob. The ambulance ruse was carried out until tho train drew out of Atlanta. Frank, on a stretcher, covered with white linen, was carried Into the car. The wisdom of the extraordinary precautions taken by tho authorities was made manifest this morning almost beforo daybreak. As the' news spread that the Frank sintenca .had been commuted !Jtnd..tba.tthA.pxlsanes?hadb.eea smuggled from the Jail a muttering crowd gathered. By 9 o'clock hundreds ot men thronged the downtown streets, their numbers rapidly Increasing and their maledictions upon Frank and tho Governor becoming more violent minute by minute.
