NIGHT WIRE WASHINGTON, April 13. When labor strikes or lockouts do not result in a material restraint of interstate commerce, the Supreme Court held today, the Federal government is powerless to intervene. The decision was handed down in a case from San Francisco where the Industrial Association of that city, the California Industrial Council and other organizations of employers had been found guilty in a lower court of violating the Sherman antitrust law in a fight for the adoption of the open shop as opposed to the closed shop which labor unions had enforced up to 1921.

United States Supreme Court Holds Federal Fee is Secondary Item fRT A. P. NIGHT WtBC! WASHINGTON, April 13. California's inheritance can be imposed upon an estate before the Federal Inheritance or estate tax has been deducted, the Supreme Court held today in a case brought bv the estate of Henrietta Pierce Wat-klnson. The courts of California sustained the estate In Imposing Its inheritance tax without deducting from the value of the estate the tax paid the Federal rovtrnmtnt.

The question decided will affect the taxation of inheritances In a number of States. The opinion was one of the first to be prepared by Associate Justice Stone, former Attorney-General. STATE'S RIGHTS Asserting "there Is murh In tndl. clal opinion to suggest that a State may impose any condition it chooses in privilege of faking property by will or descent, or. ln- oeea.

tnai it may abolish that privilege altogether." it held that "a State Is untrammeled in its power to tax tha privilege." i "The Supreme Court has held1 repeatedly." Justice Stone said, i "that the power of testamentary disposition and the privilege of in- nerttance are subject to Ftate taxation and State regulation, and that regulatory taxing provisions, even though they produce Inequalities In taxation, do not effect an unconstitutional taking of property," unless the inequalities are so flagrant as to amount to I Even assuming that the State did not hold such unlimited power under the Constitution, he added, "there la no constitutional guarantee of equality of taxation," since the power of the State to dlscrim. Inate In fixing the amount and Incidence Of taxation upon inheritances is "The guarantee of the Four teenth Amendment of the equal protection of the laws." Justice Stone said, "is not a guarantee of equality of operation or applica tion or Mate legislation upon all citizens of a State." The sections of the State statutes directly Involved in the case at hand "unquestionably may result in inequalities or taxation." 'the court declared, since its require ment mat the ederal estate tax shall not be deducted before fixing tne state impost, "imposes a much larger proportionate tax on the succession to a reatdum of a large estate than to a smaller estate, although the residuary estate and the residuary legacy be legal In each Instance." The decision denied, however, that even such admitted Inequality could be used by the plaintiffs to sustain their contention that there would be a denial of "equal protection of the laws" as content-plated by the constitution. "Here the construction of the taxing act is not open to question," the opinion concluded. "Its meaning and application have been determined by the Supreme Court of California and by Its determination we are bound. We hold that In enacting it the Legislature did not exceed Its constitutional power." STATE PROFITS BY DECISION OF COURT (BT A.

THE DAY'S NEWS SUMMED UP As a part of their employera adopted a permit sys tem tinder which supplies could be obtained by builders who would sgree to Join the open-ehop movement. The lower court finding that these permits were required for the purchase of building materials and supplies produced in and brought from other States into California, held that there had been an unlawful restraint of interstate commerce. The Supreme Court, tn an opinion by Justice Sutherland, declared today, however, that it did not And there had been a substantial obstruction of Interstate commerce sufficient to constitute a violation Lot the Sherman antitrust law.

CONSPIRACY NOT SHOWN Asserting that the evidence showed that interference with Interstate trade was neither desired nor Intended, Justice Sutherland declared that such building materials as had been brought into the during the labor dispute come to rest within the State 'and had ceased to be a part of interstate commerce. Considering that the aggregate value of the material brought into the State did not erceed a few thousand dollars In comparison with the expenditure of $100,000,000 for the construction of buildings during the controversy, he said, a showing had not been made to satisfy the court that there had been a conspiracy to restrain interstate commerce. "To extend a statute intended to reach and suppress real Interference with the free flow of com merce among the States to a situa tion so equivocal and so lacking substance," he added, "would bo to cast doubt upon the serious purposes with which it was framed.

On the Fourth of July, 1894, Elwood Haynes, then a young field superintendent for a natural gas company with headquarters at Kofcomo, had a'queer buggy, without tongue or shafts, towed out onto country road. He drove it triumphantly back Into Kokomo at the remarkable speed of eight miles an hour, under power generated oy a gasoline' engine.
