Papers were filed by the government in the United States circuit court in this city in a suit brought against the leading tians-Atlantic steamship companies under the Sherman anti-trust law. The petition alleges a combination In restraint of trade in the form of an agreement among the carious lines with respect to the handling of steerage passengers. The petition was filed by Henry A. Wise, United Hi.ates district attorney, acting upon the direction of Attorney General W'ickersham. It is directed at the following lines unci certain of their officers: International Mercantile Marine company. Allan Steamship Line, Limited. International Navigation company. Anchor Line (Henderson Brothers), Limited. Canadian Pacific Railway company. Canard Steamship Company, Limit ed. British and North Atlantic Steam Navigation Company, Limited. Hamburg-American line. Holland-American line. North Gernuin Lloyd line. Red Star line. White Star line. Russian East Asiatic Steamship Company, Limited. The petition alleges that the defend ants are engaged "in a combination and conspiracy to destroy all competi tion among and between themselves in the business of transporting third class, or steerage, passengers by steamships between ports in the Unit ed States of America and ports in Em ope," and also are engaged in destroying competition by all persons and corporations other thau themselves.

The contract upon which the action is based is alleged to have been entered into in London, on Ftb. 5, !)-!8. Under this contract the, defendant steamship lines, with the exception of the Russian-American line, are alleged to have formed themselves into an as sociation under the name of the Atlantic conference. Under the terms of the contract, it is alleged, the parties thereto agreed to divide up the steerage traffic forwarded by them, each line receiving a percentage of the total, and that each agieed not to carry steerage passengers in excess of the allotted percentage. A penalty of 4 sterling, it is alleged, was prescribed for every steerage passenger .carried in excess of the allotment, the forfeit to be divided among those companies which had not carried their share. The petition further alleges that the parties to the contract later held a meeting, at which it was decided to create a committee of three, consisting of agents of tff)s lines in the United States, with power to select steamships known as "fighting steamships,", and to advertise these for sailing at the same time and from the same ports as steamships of independent and competing lines and at lower rates, the loss on the transaction to be borne ratably by the members of the association. These methods, it is alleged, put the Russian Volunteer fleet ant of business and, as a result of them, the Russian-American line sought and obtained membership in the association. The same practices, it is alleged, are now being pursued against the Uranium Steamship company. Forty-Eight are.
